Cameoing House of Cards Reporter: ‘It Was Harder to Play Myself Than I Expected’

MattBaiTwitterProfilePicFun little item today from Joe Pompeo. He caught up with Matt Bai, the D.C.-based former New York Times Magazine reporter who has a two-scene cameo in Season Two of House of Cards.

Bai, now with Yahoo News, is friends with program showrunner Beau Willimon. He shot his scenes last August and September, and alongside an approved, dummy copy of the NYT mag, uttered slightly altered lines of dialogue:

Bai got to look over his portions of the script. He made a few tweaks, like ditching a line in which he talks about the “angle” of his piece: “I would never discuss my stories in terms of angles.”

This Just In: Aaron Sorkin Reshoots Cost HBO a Lot of Money

It’s the kind of juicy feature article pull quote that publicists usually can only dream of in the midst of a Skinny Margarita evening confab:

Aaron Sorkin on the multi-million dollar reshoots of the first few episodes of Season Two: “I doubt HBO’s going to be happy with my telling you this, but I got off to a false start with Season Two. With my hat in my hand, I went to HBO and said, ‘Would it be all right if I started again? I know it’s going to cost time and it’s going to cost a lot of money.’ Other networks would have said no.”

That email-bulletined excerpt and a whole lot more can be found in a cover story by senior TV writer Lacey Rose for the June 28 edition of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. The article also runs down the list of The Newsroom Season Two consultants, a group that includes CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and former TIME editor Jim Kelly.

Bill Maher Conservative Panelist: ‘I Made the Mistake of Replying with Facts’

What’s it like being the “token Conservative” on that raucous Friday free-for-all known as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher? After last week’s show, San Diego radio host and columnist Roger Hedgecock has shared his experience.

Hedgecock was joined on the panel by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and TIME magazine reporter Rana Foroohar. Anyone with right leanings who agrees to do Maher’s program is to be commended, and this latest brave soul admits he knew what he was in for. But he still takes Matthews to task:

“I didn’t expect Matthews to falsely claim that President Obama inherited unemployment over 10%. Unemployment in January 2009 was actually 7.8% and has not been that low since. Then Matthews really lost it, bellowing you people are just racists who hated Obama from the first day. I haven’t heard the “you people” phrase since Ross Perot used it in front of an African-American audience in 1992.”
