Kærlighed almost famous? Se Showtime’s Roadies jeg aften

Hvis du er som os, svulmede du over den nostalgiske vibe, det drømmende soundtrack og den kaste udkast (Kate Hudson!) Af Næsten berømt da det blev premiere i 2000. Nu, 16 år senere, bringer filmen direktør Cameron Crowe sin dybe musikbranche viden og sin samme lunefulde stil til den lille skærm med Showtimes nye dramedag Roadies

Showet følger en ensemble cast af, du gættede det, roadies touring med et arena-niveau band. Ledet af stjerner Carla Gugino, Luke Wilson og Imogen Poots, den modley, bag-the-scenes crew experience the heights and the decline in life along the way, complete with turbuses and sound phases across the country. (Hver episode foregår faktisk i en anden by stop på den fiktive The Staton-House Band tour).

“Det er folk der virkelig er der for at tjene bandet og til at gøre halvanden og halvt af koncertmagien ske. Og sandheden er, at hvis de gør deres arbejde rigtigt, er de usynlige,” sagde Gugino om visets virkelige liv inspirerede figurer. Vi kedede for nylig med Gugino og Poots for at chatte om showet og dets on-set magi. Fordi jeg sidder hjerte, Roadies handler om familie – den slags du opretter, or maybe just stumble in – and Gugino and Poots know it all too well.

“It’s very interesting how life and art begin to imitate each other,” said Poots about working long hours with her Roadies kastede helpere. “You are around these people all the time, and boundaries begin to dissolve.” 

“We have become the different members of each other or something,” said Gugino with a laugh. 

På showet spiller Gugino Shelli, en produktionsleder for The Staton-House Band, som ser lidt af sig selv i Poots ‘Kelly Ann, en bred øjne elektroteknologi, der også har en vandrestation med krydse grænser. Gugino og Poots, sammen med Wilson, bliver ofte fanget med at samle stykker fra humoristiske backstage-katastrofer, der hele tiden halverer den show med en frankhed, der afventer og opmuntrer til tiden. 

Kvinderne deler et par bag-the-scenes hemmeligheder med os, herunder skålen på hvad Luke Wilson virkelig er, når kameraerne er slukket og deres egne musikalske inspirationer.

Der er en ægte ægthed til showet, som ofte trækker på Cameron Croves personlige oplevelser.

Gugino: It is exciting to be on something where authenticity is really appreciated. Some of my musical friends have said that they have not seen another show that captures the luneful strange magical nature of what it is like to put on a trip.
Poots: Et hundrede procent. And the claustrophobia and the magic behind it. Cameron Crowe handler om ægthed. As good as he is, he is also exceptionally smart.
Gugino: The show is an extension of Cameron in every way in what Imogen says with regard to how clever he is and how authentic he is and how much he is and how he has it here as a really dreadful, uncomfortable look på livet. Den mest personlige er den mest universelle. I do not have a great experience with backstage in a trip across the country with a rock and roll band, but when I read this script, I was like: “I’m really related to these people.” Fordi du indser, at vi alle vil have samme ting i livet. Vi vil være elskede, vi vil se, vi ønsker at lykkes.

One of the interesting things about the show is that we will never see The Staton-House Band perform, even if we want to see musical guest stars, so the series is really about the people behind the scenes.

Gugino: At the scene, be the actor and know how much there is to support you and make the magic happen when the camera begins to roll. I feel like it’s such a good thing to play one of them and give back that way. Also, I always wonder about the kind of circus-like family backstage-you’re together in it.

Hvad er det som at arbejde med Luke Wilson? 

Poots: Med Luke, I just love to be next to him because he is very sensitive and also has this wonderful sense of humor. Han minder mig om den slags James Stewart-esque fyr. I mean, he’s so attractive and yet he’s a complete goofball at heart.
Gugino: It’s so fun to deal with Luke because we have completely different energies – I speak very fast, he speaks slowly, you know he has this very big southern wit – and for some reason our different energies really come together on a sjov måde.

Music is really the second grade in the show. How has music played a role in your own life?

Poots: It has played a dangerous big role because you could at times say that I could do without other people. Smiths var et meget vigtigt band for mig, da jeg var teenager. I have very pleasant memories of being in the library, writing essays and listening to The Smiths on repeat. Leonard Cohen, jeg falder i søvn til ham hver nat. Jeg elsker Blondie meget. Jeg tror Pavement er et fantastisk band. 
Gugino: Musik has shaped my life in such a massive way as I’m sure it has for most of us. I make playlists for characters that I play and movies, as I do. I have many favorites, and they change even though I want to say that there is something about Cat Power, at any time, if I’m not sure what I want to listen to, is it always go to.
