In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast
Paul Bettany
Given his wide array of screen roles, it makes sense that Paul Bettany would approach each character with dramatically different processes. By zeroing in on the tricks of the trade that always help, and the techniques he’s picked up over a decades-long career, Paul provides “In the Envelope” listeners several key takeaways. For example: actors should determine what they can and cannot control, whether that’s on set or in the audition room. “The thing that I could control and could promise to be,” he says, “is the most prepared person walking in.” Born in England and trained at the Drama Centre London, Paul worked onstage for years before Brian Helgeland helped launch his Hollywood career. Breaking out first in the U.K. in “Gangster No. 1” and then the U.S. in “A Knight’s Tale,” Paul has transformed himself again and again, in films like “A Beautiful Mind,” “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World,” “Dogville,” “Wimbledon,” “The Da Vinci Code,” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” He plays Frank, a gay man returning to his conservative family, in Alan Ball’s Amazon Studios feature “Uncle Frank,” and leads the new Disney+ Marvel series “WandaVision,” reprising his role as Vision from the “Avengers” movies.

Night Call
Night Call
Last Call At Night Cheers
Wahhhh but also ACK! We are leaving you with some wonderful night calls from our wonderful listeners. But of course there is also a call about how The Big Chill and Cathy comics are connected, some rhapsodizing about monoliths (new and old), and a decision on what show is better: Frasier or Cheers. Some sentimental night calls to send us out, our favorite episodes and guests, reminiscing about Girls In Hoodies, and where we’d send our listeners to help fill the void. We promise we’ll be back someday on some astral plane. So long for now. Thanks for listening to Night Call.  NOTES HelloCullen Frasier tweet https://twitter.com/HelloCullen/status/1333086443481141248 Alissa Walker tattoo tweet https://twitter.com/awalkerinLA/status/1332887007161270272 Third monolith https://www.npr.org/2020/12/03/942056802/the-monolith-mystery-deepens-as-a-3rd-oddity-pops-up-in-california iamamiwhoami https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iamamiwhoami Maryhill https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryhill,_Washington Hot and Rich https://twitter.com/hotandrichshow?lang=en Joan Haley Ford on Twitch https://www.twitch.tv/joanhaleyford Sound Only https://www.theringer.com/2020/8/4/21354364/introducing-sound-only-with-justin-charity-and-micah-peters Bad Gays https://badgayspod.podbean.com/ Scary Cool Sad Goodbye https://scarycoolsadgoodbye.substack.com/p/scary-cool-sad-goodbye-01 Creature Feature https://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-creature-feature-30054205/ Ologies https://www.alieward.com/ologies Jane Marie's substack https://seejanemarie.substack.com/ Tess's weather newsletter https://tinyletter.com/LAWeather Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
