‘Mr Inbetween’ remains dark and distinctly Australian in season two

(L-r) Scott Ryan, Nash Edgerton, Chika Yasumura, Michele Bennett, Nicholas Cassim and Brooke Satchwell.

In the writer’s room that is Scott Ryan’s head, the marginalised and charmingly transgressive characters of Mr Inbetween have staged a coup. Unconcerned with character arcs or narrative demands, they flow with dark authenticity.

“I sit down and I just write a bunch of shit, I sit at the computer and stuff comes into my head. It’s like being a medium that channels spirits. I just channel down whatever it is up there,” explained Ryan the creator and star of the dramedy, the second season of which begins today on Foxtel, at a Q&a screening earlier this week.

“I think we have to be open to that creative force or whatever you want to call it and let it work through you and not try to put conditions on it. You let

‘Mr Inbetween’ Review: Season 2 Dissects Bullies from the Inside Out

‘Mr Inbetween’ Review: Season 2 Dissects Bullies from the Inside Out
When “Mr Inbetween” premiered a year ago this September, it was enveloped by the rather large shadow of another half-hour hitman series, “Barry.” Bill Hader’s first season had wrapped months prior to Scott Ryan’s FX debut, but it was in the middle of what proved to be a very successful Emmys run and comparisons between the two dark comedies were unavoidable. They still are, as “Barry” continues to dominate cultural conversation (on its way to another likely score at the Emmys) and “Mr Inbetween” hopes to find its own space within the ever-growing TV sphere.

To be clear, it deserves one. The sharply written and well-performed Australian series isn’t in “Barry’s” upper-echelon of comedy, but it’s smart, wickedly funny, and, in Season 2, purposeful. And much of its new direction can be found in the clear differences between this bald, mustachioed hitman (played by Ryan) and his tall,

Justin Rosniak gets to play good guys

Justin Rosniak has been cast as crooks and other wayward types so often in his career he is relishing the opportunity to play more upstanding characters.

“There is not a lot of diversity in characters in Australia so once you get locked into something, some people only see you as one thing,” he tells If. “I often long to get to show my range a bit more, or a softer side.

“So it’s been good that in the last couple of years I have started to get roles that push me in other directions and allow me to add a few different layers.”

In the second season of Mr Inbetween, the comedy/drama created by and starring Scott Ryan as criminal-for-hire Ray Shoesmith, he gets the chance to show a different side to his character Gary, Ray’s best friend.

Rose Riley sets her sights on Hollywood

Rose Riley (L) and Emma Harvie in ‘Diary of an Uber Driver.’

Rose Riley is getting ready to have her first crack at Hollywood amid the most successful year of her career since graduating from Waapa in 2013.

This week the actor is heading to the Us for the first time for meetings with producers, casting directors and other players set up by her Us agent, Authentic Talent & Literary Management’s Jessica Morgulis.

Rose met Morgulis when the agent visited Sydney, arranged by her Oz rep United Management, before she started work in Stateless, the six-part ABC drama about four strangers in an immigration detention centre in the Australian desert, co-created by Cate Blanchett, Tony Ayres and Elise McCredie.

“I will always be very passionate about Australian stories and Australian cinema, TV and theatre but working overseas would be a total dream; ideally I will find a balance,” she tells If.

In season two his work and personal life begin to collide and he finds himself struggling to keep both sides of his life from imploding.

How Australian Hitman Series ‘Mr. Inbetween’ Squeezed Onto FX – TCA

  • Deadline
How Australian Hitman Series ‘Mr. Inbetween’ Squeezed Onto FX – TCA
It all stated with at Melbourne Film Festival that filmmaker/actor Nash Edgerton was attending. He caught Scott Ryan’s half hour mockumentary The Magician about a working-class hitman, Ray Shoesmith, with a sweet family side.

“I thought my brother (Joel) would get a kick out of it; my brother and I have a dark sense of humor,” said Edgerton who has frequently collaborated with his bro on such pics as Gringo, which he directed, and acting in Joel’s Blumhouse/Stx horror pic The Gift.

Ryan had originally shot The Magician as a feature, but had cut it down to 30 minutes. When Edgerton wanted to see more, Ryan handed him a copy of the entire film. With producer Michele Bennett’s help, the feature version of The Magician received a release, and soon after Ryan’s concept found its way to FX.

‘The Merger’ was a game changer for Fayssal Bazzi

Actor Fayssal Bazzi’s father is Lebanese and his mother is Syrian, so for much of his career he was determined to avoid being typecast as Arabic characters, particularly criminals and terrorists.

After scoring the lead role in Mark Grentell’s comedy-drama The Merger, he has enjoyed a higher profile and portrayed a diverse range of characters.

“I just want to play characters whose ethnicity is incidental and I’ve been lucky to be able to do that in the past few years,” he tells If.

Earlier this year he played the son-in-law of Damon Herriman’s seedy night club owner in the second season of FX/Foxtel’s Mr Inbetween, created by and starring Scott Ryan and directed by Nash Edgerton. That was his second collaboration with Herriman following Abe Forsythe’s 2015 Cronulla race riot drama Down Under.

Currently he is in Adelaide shooting Stateless,

Damon Herriman aims to take a break from villainy

Damon Herriman in ‘Perpetual Grace, Ltd.’

After portraying a succession of killers, psychotics and all-round bad dudes for the best part of 10 years, Damon Herriman is striving to play more upstanding characters.

With mixed success, it must be said. The actor cheerfully acknowledges his career has been in a purple patch for the last few years but says: “I have been in this business long enough to know it may not last. I had a 10-year run playing bad guys so now I am trying to steer clear of playing psychopaths and violent pigs.”

Not that he would turn down a juicy role as a villain.

Recently he wrapped shooting the second season of FX/Foxtel’s Mr Inbetween, which stars the creator Scott Ryan as professional hitman Ray Shoesmith. Nash Edgerton continues as the director of the comedy/action drama produced by Michele Bennett for Jungle Entertainment and Blue-Tongue Films.

David Letterman’s Final Episodes of ‘The Late Show': 5 Surprising Behind-the-Scenes Stories

  • The Wrap
David Letterman’s Final Episodes of ‘The Late Show': 5 Surprising Behind-the-Scenes Stories
David Letterman’s “Late Show” went off the air on May 20, 2015, and since then, all the lip-sync battles and carpool karaokes haven’t quite filled that perfect quota of weird that Letterman once provided.

But as author Scott Ryan argues in his new book “The Last Days of Letterman: The Final 6 Weeks,” Letterman hit a stride of old-fashioned, genuine late night talk that rose to the level of Johnny Carson in his final shows.

“Dave and his guests actually talked to each other. Very few of the guests were appearing on the show to promote their latest movies. They were actually coming on the show to talk to their friend,” Ryan writes in the opening to his book. “This time they brought it back to the days of Jack Paar and Johnny Carson. For six weeks of time, conversation was the true king of late night.”

Playing on the dark side keeps paying off for Damon Herriman

These are heady times for Damon Herriman, who has just scored his fifth Aacta nomination after winning the Qantas Orry-Kelly Award from Australians in Film and wrapping a film with Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.

Not bad for an actor who doubted when he first went to Hollywood in 2000 that he would ever get a job there but didn’t want to live with the regret of not having a crack.

Herriman is typically modest about the latest accolades. Referring to the previous recipients of the Orry-Kelly Award – Tim Minchin, film executive Greg Basser, producer Bruna Papandrea, Baz Luhrmann, John Polson and filmmaking collective Blue-Tongue Films – he tells If: “I am in incredibly good company.”

Scott’s Ryan’s professional hitman Ray Shoesmith is set for further adventures next year after FX Networks and Foxtel confirmed there will be a second season of Mr Inbetween.

A renewal was almost certain after the six-part comedy/action drama produced by Michele Bennett for Jungle Entertainment and Blue-Tongue Films posted strong ratings in the Us, averaging 2.25 million viewers across all linear and non-linear platforms.

The gain in total viewers for the first episode of the Nash Edgerton-directed show was 113 per cent over seven days, a bigger increase than that for the last six FX drama series premieres. The second episode registered a 110 per cent jump in total viewers.

Created and scripted by Ryan, the show co-stars Damon Herriman, Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Jackson Tozer, Nicholas Cassim, Chika Yasumura and Matt Nable. Most of the cast is expected to return, with Bennett producing again.
