As Allison Hussey wrote in her Listening Diary interview with actor Matt Berry: Matt Berry holds the excellence of taking part in one of many horniest vampires ever to grace American tv—True Blood and Buffy be damned. Because the libidinous Laszlo Cravensworth on FX’s What We Do within the Shadows, the Bedfordshire, England-born Berry rounds out a colourful quartet of vampires residing in modernity on Staten Island. Laszlo is a prolific pornographer and unrepentant libertine, and Berry electrifies the undead Casanova with a flamboyantly assured edge by means of gag after gag.
P-Valley’s second season is steeped in Southern rap
As Alphonse Pierre wrote in his Listening Diary interview with actor Shannon Thornton: Shannon Thornton ready for her position in P-Valley, the Starz dramedy concerning the lives of dancers at a Mississippi strip membership referred to as the Pynk, by getting actually into Southern rap—particularly, rap from New Orleans. “I used to be doing quite a lot of analysis, but it surely was Juvenile and the Sizzling Boys that made me go loopy,” she says over Zoom. “Now, each time we need to have a superb time in my trailer I placed on Juvenile.”
Southern rap is the spine of P-Valley, which launched its second season earlier this summer season. From regional classics to smaller gems that may make you pull out Shazam, the soundtrack makes the placement really feel lived in. This season, a couple of of the memorable needle drops have included Memphis underground hit DJ Zirk’s “Lock Em in Da Trunk” and Rick Ross’ “Hustlin,” together with a visitor look by New Orleans bounce legend Huge Freedia. In the meantime, one of many present’s characters is a rapper named Lil Murda—performed by J. Alphonse Nicholson in a breakout position—and the unique songs he performs really aren’t horrible.
