Nation $1.8M libel ruling leaves questions on slain sniper’s legacy

PAUL MOSELEY (THE FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM/AP)

No Winners in Case

Washington Chris Kyle, musclebound, grimfaced and lethal, liked to tell stories. Before his murder in 2013 at 38, the so-called deadliest sniper in American history nurtured a comic book narrative. He was the “true American badass,” as one journalist called him, who dipped, wore big boots and affected an aw-shucks Texas swagger. With 160 confirmed kills under his belt and a beautiful family behind him, he became the stuff of military legend. He wrote a best-selling book. Statues were erected. Millions made. And then there were his stories — some of which smelled fishy. “There were a lot of things he told people that are really unverifiable,” journalist Michael J. Mooney, who wrote a book on Kyle, said. Like the one he told about former Minnesota Gov. Jesse “The Body” Ventura. It’s a story that Ventura said was false. A Minnesota jury, which on Tuesday awarded Ventura $1.8 million in damages from Kyle’s estate, agreed. The details of the defamatory story: Kyle punched Ventura out at

*While supplies last

The estate of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was murdered in 2013, was ordered to pay Jesse Ventura $1.8 million over a disputed passage in Kyle’s book, “American Sniper.”

Tales True or Tall? Chris Kyle’s sense of superhuman toughness perhaps led him to tell stories reporters couldn’t confirm. Here are two examples:

He told journalist Michael J. Mooney two armed men told him to hand over the keys to his black F-350 at a gas station in Dallas. Kyle then claimed he reached into the car, pulled out a gun and killed both men. But was it true? Reporters called some of the nearby county sheriffs and none of them knew of it. According to the New Yorker, Kyle and a few other SEALs told a story about traveling to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and shooting dozens of armed residents who were contributing to the chaos. “I never heard that story,” one of Kyle’s officers told the New Yorker. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

a bar in 2006 after Ventura criticized the Iraq War and said the SEALs “deserve to lose a few.” Ventura insisted the whole event never happened, and the majority of the jury appeared to agree with him.

Kyle was an exceptional soldier — a man others simply referred to as “The Legend.” But the verdict laid bare a separate side of him: his bravado. His writing is drenched in brag-

Jesse Ventura won another victory on Wednesday when “American Sniper” publisher HarperCollins said it would remove the passage that sparked the lawsuit from the bestseller. Still, in taking money from Chris Kyle’s estate, Ventura is taking a pounding from many military supporters and veterans. The common refrain: Even if Kyle lied about Ventura, they say, the defamation case should have been dropped after Kyle was shot to death on a gun range in Texas in 2013. (T WP)

gadocio. “People ask me all the time, ‘How many people have you killed?’ ” he wrote in “American Sniper.” “My standard response is, ‘Does the answer make me less, or more, of a man?’ … The Navy credits me with more kills as a sniper than any other American service member, past or present. I guess that’s true.” What was less sure, however, were some of the anecdotes he told after he left the SEALs in 2009 and returned to Texas. “After his incredible military career, he felt such high pressure to maintain his image,” Mooney told The Washington Post. One way he did this was bar fights, pinning it on “pent-up aggression.” TERRENCE McCOY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Nearly every criminal case reviewed by the FBI and the Justice Department as part of a massive investigation started in 2012 of problems at the FBI lab has included flawed forensic testimony from the agency, government officials said. The f indings troubled the bureau, and it stopped the review of convictions last August. Case reviews resumed this month at the order of the Justice Department, the officials said. U.S. officials began the inquiry after The Washington Post reported two years ago that flawed forensic evidence involving microscopic hair matches might have led to the convictions of hundreds of potentially innocent people. The inquiry includes 2,600 convictions and 45 death-row cases from the 1980s and 1990s in which the FBI’s hair and fiber unit reported a match to a crime-scene sample. The FBI reviewed about 160 cases before it stopped, officials said. SPENCER S. HSU (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles A brand new transit option is coming soon to Northern Virginia, with the region’s first dedicated bus lanes providing fast, reliable connections in Alexandria and Arlington. Starting August 24, Metro will begin operating Metroway, a premium bus transit service through the Crystal City/Potomac Yard Corridor. Stretching from Braddock Road Metrorail station to Crystal City Metrorail station, Metroway will travel along nearly a mile of dedicated bus lanes through one of the most congested segments of Route 1. The dedicated lanes will allow buses to beat congested traffic and provide riders with faster, more reliable travel options. The DC region has never experienced bus service like this. Metroway buses will travel between new weather-protected “stations” that are fully ADA compliant, and dedicated bus lanes will breeze passengers through snarled traffic. Curbside ticket kiosks will allow riders to pay their fares before boarding the bus, real-time arrival screens will keep riders informed about wait times, and special traffic signals will speed buses through intersections. The new service will be phased in, and customer feedback will be sought with the introduction of each new feature and amenity to assure that Metroway is responsive to riders when fully implemented. For example, when the first stretch of dedicated bus lanes opens in Alexandria, riders will pay their fares on board the bus and not at a curbside ticket kiosk. Additional amenities will be introduced when Metroway expands to its full five-mile stretch, including the Arlington portion of the transitway, and all 28 Metroway stations are operational. Bus service along dedicated bus lanes is growing in popularity. Similar premium bus transit services have been very successful in New York City and Boston, and I am eager to see how our riders respond to Metroway. I expect that many Northern Virginia residents and visitors alike will be pleased with the speedy new connections along Route 1.

It’s time to ride the Silver Line Silver Line service began at noon on Saturday, July 26, following a ribbon cutting at the entrance of the new Wiehle-Reston East station. U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray, Rep. Gerry Connolly, Rep. Frank Wolf, Rep. Jim Moran, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, and many other regional leaders joined Metro for the opening day celebration. Find out more about the new service at silverlinemetro.com.

Your Ticket to Ride Commemorative Silver Line SmarTrip® cards are now available for sale in the five new Silver Line stations in Virginia, at all Metro sales offices and online at wmata.com. They will be rolled out in the coming weeks in Smartrip® dispensers throughout the system. Like other SmarTrip® cards, the SV cards are available for $10 and come loaded with $8 in fare value.

17 are killed when shelter housing war refugees hit by shells PAPAL WISDOM

Gaza City, Gaza Strip Israeli strikes hit a crowded shopping area in Gaza City on Wednesday, hours after tank shells tore through the walls of a U.N. school crowded with war refugees in the deadliest of a series of air and artillery attacks that pushed the Palestinian death toll above 1,300 in more than three weeks of fighting. The attack on the U.N. school in the Jebaliya refugee camp was the second deadly strike on a U.N. compound in a week. Tank shells slammed into the compound before dawn Wednesday, and officials said at least 17 people were killed and about 90 wounded. The Israeli military said it fired back after its soldiers were targeted by mortar rounds launched from the vicinity of the school by Hamas.

U.N., U.S. Call Out Israel After Strike on School

A Palestinian child, wounded in the strike on a U.N. school, is treated Wednesday.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon called the strike “outrageous” and “unjustifiable” and demanded an immediate humanitarian cease-fire. “Nothing is more shameful than attacking sleeping children,” Ban said. He said that “all available evidence points to Israeli artillery as the cause” and noted that Israeli military authorities had received the

coordinates of the school from the U.N. 17 times, including on Tuesday. The White House also condemned the deadly shelling. White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said the U.S. is “extremely concerned” that thousands of Palestinians aren’t safe in U.N.-designated shelters, despite being told by Israel’s military to leave their homes.

Berlin Before the start of a pro-Palestinian rally — one of the scores being staged almost daily in Berlin since Israel launched its offensive in Gaza — an organizer on a bullhorn yelled out the do’s and don’ts as ordered last week by the city’s police. No burning the Israeli flag. No shouts of “Death to Israel.” And absolutely no repeating the slogan “Jew, Jew, cowardly pig, come out and fight alone” — a rhyming chant in German that had become increasingly common at pro-Palestinian rallies before being nipped in the bud by German authorities.

estinian father and a German mother. But, she insisted, even thoughtful criticism against Israel is being misinterpreted here as hate speech. “There are more of us speaking out about Israel now,” she said. “Because of what happened during Hitler’s day, it is making Ger-

mans nervous.” The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is echoing on the streets of Europe, sparking a rash of protests. But nowhere are the deeds of protesters sparking more discomfort than in Germany, where the most radical protest chants are rattling through the streets of Berlin like disturbing ghosts of the past. “We’re aware that the world is watching us, how we’re handling the situation,” said Berlin police spokesman Stefan Redlich. “It’s clearly part of the right of freedom of expression to criticize states that are waging wars. [But] it’s one thing to criticize the way Israel leads a war and another to call for people from Israel to get hurt. That’s the red line.” ANTHONY FAIOLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Pope Offers His Top 10 Tips For Finding Happiness In an interview published in the Argentine weekly “Viva” on July 27, Pope Francis listed his Top 10 secrets to happiness. As reported by Catholic News Service, here they are: 1

“Live and let live.” “Be giving of yourself to others.” 3 “Proceed calmly” in life — and “move with kindness and humility.” 4 Have “a healthy sense of leisure.” Read. Play with your kids. And turn off the TV when you’re eating dinner together. 5 Sundays should be holidays. Workers should have Sundays off because “Sunday is for family,” he said. 6 Find innovative ways to create dignified jobs for young people. “It’s not enough to give them food,” he said. “Dignity is given to you when you can bring food home” from one’s own labor. 7 Respect and take care of nature. 8 Stop being negative. “Needing to talk badly about others indicates low self-esteem. That means, ‘I feel so low that instead of picking myself up, I have to cut others down,’ ” the pope said. “Letting go of negative things quickly is healthy.” 9 Don’t proselytize; respect others’ beliefs. 10 Work for peace. “We are living in a time of many wars,” he said, and “the call for peace must be shouted.” 2

Paunchy Pooches Now Have a Dog Gym Alexandria A dog’s life used to be easier: Take a six-hour nap, terrify a squirrel, have a little can of something for dinner. But these days, a dog needs a day planner, what with the yappy hours, the dog-park play dates and now — yes, it’s come to this — working out down at the dog gym. Ruby was three minutes into her regime Wednesday at Frolick Dogs Canine Sports Club in Alexandria, pumping her little beagle

legs along the treadmill at 2.5 miles an hour, her nose in endless pursuit of the treat held just out of reach by her personal trainer, Kim Gilliam. The burgeoning canine industrial complex has produced another indulgence: Fido fitness. Frolick bills itself as the area’s first sports club for pets. For $50 a month, dogs get unlimited access to a 6,000-square-foot facility boasting two treadmills, balance balls (for that important core work), cross training and an agility course. Crazy? Like a foxhound. “It’s grown even faster than I thought it would,” said Kevin Gilliam, a longtime dog trainer who, with his wife, Kim, just opened the business. In their first five weeks, they’ve

Charter Group Sues D.C. Alleging Unequal Funding

WMATA Sued Over Background Checks

An organization that represents more than three dozen charter schools filed a federal lawsuit against D.C. on Wednesday, alleging the city failed to provide uniform operating funds for charter and traditional schools as the law requires. The D.C. Association of Chartered Public Schools argues that the city has spent about $2,150 less per charter student each year since 2008 than it did for students in the D.C. public school system. It caps years of funding debates that have pitted charter advocates against government officials and traditionalschool advocates. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Attorneys in D.C. filed a class-action lawsuit Wednesday against the Washington Metro Transit Authority on behalf of nine African-American men who claim the agency’s criminal background screening policy violates their civil rights. The suit alleges that WMATA has an “overly broad, unjustifiably rigid” screening policy that disproportionately bars wellqualified black workers. The lawsuit comes as D.C., Montgomery County, Md., and about 70 other municipalities have recently passed “ban the box” legislation, preventing employers from asking about prior convictions on job applications.

Otherwise, she said, the decision would have a relatively minimal impact on street crime or her department’s ability to police neighbor-

hoods and lock up dangerous criminals who are found carrying guns. “Law-abiding citizens that register firearms, that follow the rules,

are not our worry,” she said. “Our worry really is, how do we maintain the level of security in the nation’s capital that we’re required to maintain 24 hours a day?” The ruling from U.S. District Senior Judge Frederick Scullin is on hold until at least October while city leaders determine how to comply with his finding that the city’s flat ban on the carrying of weapons by people who are not law enforcement officials violates the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Lanier made note of major public events such as the yearly July 4 celebrations on the Mall and next week’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, which is expected to attract dozens of world leaders, as places where gun carrying should be tightly restricted.

The McDonnell Trial, Day 3

Hearsay

Jonnie Williams Sr., the man key to proving federal corruption charges against former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, began his testimony Wednesday afternoon, explaining how he lavished the first family with gifts. It capped a day in which witnesses gave exhaustive testimony about the ways the first family benefited from their relationship with Williams — vacations, rides on yachts and a Rolex watch, among them. (THE WASHINGTON POST ) The loans and monetary gifts

The shopping trip

The aide’s testimony

The golf outings

In May 2011, Maureen McDonnell told Williams, right, that she and her husband were discussing filing bankruptcy, Williams testified Wednesday. “She said to me, ‘I have a background in nutritional supplements, and I can be helpful to you … The governor says it’s OK for me to help you, but I need you to help me with this financial situation.’ ” He said she asked for a $50,000 loan and $15,000 to cover costs at her daughter’s wedding. It is the most direct testimony of a conspiracy, but it came with a caveat. Williams acknowledged Maureen did not then promise her husband would help Williams’ company.

Williams told the jury about his April 2011 shopping trip with Maureen to Bergdorf Goodman and Oscar de la Renta. He testified Maureen initially indicated she wanted to buy two dresses, but ended up with a series of items, including a full-length white leather coat, a pair of shoes, a raincoat and another dress. “It went on for hours,” Williams said.

Williams’ longtime aide, Jerri Fulkerson, painted a portrait of Williams rolling out the red carpet for the McDonnells as prosecutors flashed photos of the businessman’s lakeside estate. Fulkerson told the jury about making plans for the McDonnells to stay at Williams’ vacation home and arranging for a Ferrari to be transported to the home for the governor’s use.

Phil Owenby, general manager at an exclusive golf club in Richmond, testified about the trips Bob McDonnell and his sons took to the club on Williams’ tab. Only once did Williams golf with the McDonnells, Owenby said. On four other occasions, McDonnell golfed alone with his sons. Several times, his sons golfed alone. Each time cost hundreds of dollars.

Cover Story

Hell No, We Won’t … Oh, Forget About It

Congress’ Ticking Clock The House and Senate are trying — or at least appear to be trying — to complete work on a series of complex issues before fleeing Washington for five weeks. By law, Congress has to adjourn for the month of August. Which begins Friday. Can they get everything done before they leave? Stop laughing. (T WP/AP)

Is Congress so pathetic that even the protesters aren’t bothering to show up? Washington

Veterans’ Health Care

Fifteen minutes after the rally’s scheduled start and here’s what we have outside the Russell Senate Office Building: one pink fedora, one pink sun hat and a half-dozen pink T-shirts. Three Capitol Police officers ascend the marble staircase to have a word with Medea Benjamin, the head of Code Pink, an antiwar protest group that has come to publicly demand that Congress send no money to Egypt. “I haven’t seen you guys in a long time,” Officer Patrick Gray says, giving Benjamin a bear hug. “Man, you guys used to be feistier. I remember when there used to be like 200 of you guys.” Code Pink — which has determined that making a scene outside the Capitol isn’t worth it these days — isn’t the only group failing to

Congress is racing to approve a compromise bill to refurbish the Department of Veterans Affairs and improve veterans’ health care. The House OK’d the $17 billion bill Wednesday, and the Senate is expected to approve it today.

Immigration Senators voted Wednesday to advance the $3.5 billion emergency spending bill to deal with the immigration surge on the U.S.Mexico border. But with the GOP opposed, there was little expectation that the legislation would prevail. That would mean a significant cash shortfall for the departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and Health and Human Services as they continue dealing with the immigrant influx.

Transportation

“It’s harder to justify whether it’s really worth coming … People say there’s no sense in dealing with Congress anymore because they are so impotent and useless.” — MEDE A BENJA MIN, OF PROTEST GROUP CODE PINK

flood Capitol Hill. Last year around this time, the tea party had one of its biggest rallies since 2010 on the same day that Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, hosted a six-hour anti-immigration protest. Today, there’s Code Pink and a small clean-air rally. It’s not to say there aren’t protests in Washington. It’s just that Congress isn’t prime real estate for a rally.

By the middle of February (February!), The Washington Post reported that Congress had already decided to shelve “any bigticket legislation for the rest of the year.” And with the August break approaching, followed by the leadup to the midterm elections, there just doesn’t seem to be time for actual legislating. “It gets most hectic if there’s hearings on issues of interest to groups that feel strongly on both sides,” says Terry Gainer, who recently retired as the Senate’s sergeant at arms. “The fact that there are fewer of those and that the House and Senate aren’t in sync on their sessions really changes the dynamic.” But while the number of causedriven activists coming to the Hill has dwindled, some regulars remain. Rick Hohensee has been a staple outside of Congress for years

Obama Lawsuit Here’s one issue lawmakers can check off their list: On Wednesday, a divided House approved a GOP plan to sue President Barack Obama, accusing him of exceeding the bounds of his constitutional authority. Expect to hear Republicans talk often about their lawsuit plans back home during the recess.

BONNIE JO MOUNT (THE WASHINGTON POST)

By Friday, the federal Highway Trust Fund will no longer have enough money to cover promised aid to states, the Transportation Department says. Without action from Congress, the balance is expected to drop to zero by late August or early September. Legislation to assure uninterrupted funds was stalled at least temporarily Wednesday in a lastminute dispute between the House and Senate. But aides expressed confidence it would be resolved in time for final approval today.

Longtime protester James McGinley perches in front of the Cannon House Office Building in D.C. earlier this month.

They’re Not Gone, They’ve Just Shifted Just because fewer people are bothering with the Capitol doesn’t mean protests have died out everywhere. It just means there are better places to be. “We could continue protesting or pounding our fist on the pavement, or we could try to win seats and make a difference,” says Taylor Budowich, executive director of the Tea Party Express. His group has held rallies in recent months in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Minnesota but has no plans to come to D.C. “We are trying to be on the front lines, and right now that’s not Washington.” (TWP)

now and admits that it’s hard for other people to want to come out and protest because it’s become clear that no one will give them what they are asking for. James McGinley, who sits outside the Cannon House Office Building working on a laptop powered by solar panels, is also a constant protesting presence. McGinley, who says he’s been on the streets for almost 10 years now, has grown a long beard, had “Wage Love or Die” tattooed under his eyes and has protested on everything ranging from military action to the need for renewable energy. “It’s true there aren’t many of us out here,” McGinley says. “But the fact that Congress isn’t doing anything should be the precipitating event that gets people on the street. Too many people are interested in an easy media hit, but that’s not what makes change.” BEN TERRIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

FILM RIFFS

DISNEY

The Rosebuds’ Ivan Howard, left, and Kelly Crisp are living proof that divorced couples can get along.

GRAHAM TOLBERT

Goodie Mobs

Deep Into the Woods The Rosebuds write a new chapter with ‘Sand + Silence’ Music After indie-rock duo The Rosebuds wrap an August tour, multi-instrumentalist Kelly Crisp is finally going to get around to writing that novel. Well, maybe not immediately. This fall, Crisp starts her second year at Columbia University, where she’s studying for an MFA in fiction writing. “I guess the end result would be that I’m going to publish a novel,” Crisp says. “I’m definitely fearful of it, but I’m going to have to do it because I already got in too deep.” If she needs inspiration, perhaps

INDIES & ARTIES

Crisp can look to her and her bandmate Ivan Howard’s origin story: Girl meets boy in North Carolina, they form a band, get married, tour the world, get divorced — and continue to work together. The sessions for the band’s expertly crafted sixth album, “Sand + Silence,” out Tuesday, were also full of good stories, Crisp says.

2011’s quasi-divorce record “Loud Planes Fly Low” — but their creative relationship is stronger than ever. “There was one argument between me and Ivan and that was really it,” she says of the sessions. Friends with Howard since they were 18, Crisp says “it’s been easy for us to continue this communication on all creative levels because it always has been.”

1-2-3-4

A Little Help

The Rosebuds pressed “record” on the first “Sand + Silence” sessions one night at 12:34 a.m. with a livein-studio take of “In My Teeth.” That take ended up opening the record. “I was like, This is really funny because I think 12:34 is a lucky time,” Crisp says. “It’s not even superstition, it was just happening at the time.”

“I ended up not playing a whole lot on the record,” Crisp says, because “I’m not the best musician in the room.” Bon Iver leader Justin Vernon produced the album and played on it, as did his drummer, Matt McCaughan, and Sylvan Esso producer Nick Sanborn.

Better (Not) Together

Crisp and Howard lived at Vernon’s April Base Studios in Wisconsin while recording, a full-circle throw-

Crisp and Howard are a few years removed from their divorce — and

back to 2007’s “Night of the Furies.” For that record, the then-married couple turned their North Carolina home into a studio, and Vernon moved in to produce. “That was one of the more fun times of my life,” Crisp says.

A Perfect Storm You’ve probably heard the story about Vernon holing up in a cabin in the woods to record his breakout album “For Emma, Forever Ago.” While making “Sand + Silence,” Vernon took that idea a step further when he had Howard record a lead vocal outside the studio — quite literally in the woods. Then it started raining, and they kept rolling. The sound of an impending storm closes “Tiny Bones,” the final track on the album. “At t he end of t he ta ke,” Crisp says, “I got goose bumps.”

Two are better than one, so three are better than two and so on and so on. Teams are better, is the point. “Guardians of the Galaxy,” out Friday, showcases a team of misfits out to save the universe; the GoGs join the ranks of other crime-fighting clubs. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

1 The A-Team The small-screen heroes got the big-screen treatment in 2010. It was actually a pretty fun film, and we pity the fool who didn’t see it.

2 The Howling Commandos This WWII unit in 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” was surprisingly diverse, with an African-American, a Japanese guy and an Irish guy who is somehow allowed to wear a bowler hat with his uniform.

3 The Untouchables Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) formed a team in this 1987 crime drama to take down mob boss Al Capone. It was very exciting, until they get him on … tax evasion. History sometimes makes for weird endings.

highlight the under-appreciated and encourage people to do their own thing, give people an outlet.” In It Together’s schedule is packed with more than 20 showcases at many of the city’s premier DIY venues — places like Ft. Loko, Paperhaus and St. Stephen’s as well as The Dougout — from Thursday to Sunday. If you want to check out some shows but don’t know where to start, let this be your guide.

Pile Pile hails from Boston but its sound harks back to Dischord’s golden age with its knotty guitars and noisy, post-hardcore edge. But unlike the countless groups recycling the Dischord formula, Pile is a dynamic band, oscillating mid-song between loud, pummeling rock and soft, beautiful melodies. “We’ve been trying to get [Pile] down here for a while,” Isaacoff says, “so we’re stoked to have them.” Download This: The snaking, heavy metal-leaning “Grunt Like a Pig” The Dougout, 1498 Douglas St. NE; Fri., 8 p.m., free with $5 badge or donation; facebook.com/thedougoutdc.

Spoonboy David Combs, frontman for D.C. punk heroes The Max Levine Ensemble, performs solo as Spoonboy, opting for a stripped-down, mostly acoustic Frank Turner vibe. Even unplugged, Combs’ music is full of angst. “I think if you enjoy The Max Levine Ensemble, you’ll enjoy Spoonboy,” Shobert says. “It’s just classic David.” Download This: “Fireball Or What I Learned From TV,” 96 glorious seconds of angry, motormouthed folk punk

The Effects This mysterious Washington-based punk three-piece doesn’t have any recorded music yet, but with Matt Dowling of Deleted Scenes on bass and David Ocampo from Medications on guitar and vocals, they’re what you’d call a D.C. supergroup. The Effects — headlining the festival’s only ticketed show — are also the band O’Brien’s most looking forward to seeing live. “It’s very much that post-hardcore, Dischord sound,” he says. “I’m excited to see them really rock out.”

Streetcars to Ride

“Streetcar” and “trolley” both mean an electric vehicle that runs on fixed rails; if you want to be European about it, say “tram.” But heed the muse-

Amy Bloom: In her newest novel, “Lucky Us,”

author Amy Bloom, left, weaves a tale of two sisters, one determined to be a star and the other willing to follow her anywhere. When precocious teen Evie sneaks out with Hollywood-bound Iris, she starts a lifetime of hitching her wagon to the stars around her. With World War II rattling all walks of life, the sisters stumble through a changing American landscape. As Evie says, “I don’t think the best beginning is … the strong feeling that if you do not leap now … onto this buckling train, you may be sorry, but I don’t think it’s the worst.” On Thursday, Bloom discusses the book in D.C.

From left, streetcars from The Hague, Netherlands; Blackpool, England; and Toronto, are all restored with great love.

The story of the National Capital Trolley Museum is one of love, patience and quiet diligence. Streetcar service in D.C. ended in 1962. In 1959, knowing the system would soon meet its doom, streetcar fans founded the museum, which opened in 1969. Since then, they’ve kept the streetcar flame alive — to be rewarded, presumably this year, with the rebirth of streetcar service on H Street and Benning Road NE.

If you’re lucky, you’ll experience an authentic malfunction: The pole connecting the boat-shaped car to the wires above may go astray, and you can watch the conductor adjust it. The 1907 Belgian tram’s loud and bumpy ride, akin to a wooden roller coaster’s, delighted the children onboard. The tamer Toronto trolley is the same model as the last streetcar to run in D.C.

entertainment | Weekend Pass Q&A

Absolutely, I gotta work it all off. Every time I’m in D.C., I walk the Mall, I go from the Capitol building to the Lincoln Memorial. I’ve been to that Air and Space Museum so many darn times and every time I’m in there I learn or discover something new.

Steve Byrne doesn’t run a bar, he plays a guy who runs a bar on TV.

How are the “Sullivan & Son” stand-up shows different from your solo shows?

I get to spread the wealth. It’s a lot of fun because we’ve developed these set pieces, so there’s a lot of interaction. The last 20 to 30 minutes is all improv and stuff we’ve collaborated with over the last three years on the road, so it’s very Rat Pack-y.

ROBYN VON SWANK

Has touring together helped with filming the show?

Let’s All Meet At the Bar ‘Sullivan & Son’ star Steve Byrne brings his castmates to D.C. Comedy Steve Byrne seems like a good guy to have a beer with. Maybe it’s because the comedian runs a bar on TBS’ “Sullivan & Son” (10 p.m., Tuesdays), the sitcom he co-created with Rob Long (who worked on another show about a bar that you may have heard of — hint: It rhymes with “beers”). It could also be because Byrne’s first suggestion for drunk food in D.C. is Ben’s Chili Bowl. Whatever the reason, you’ll have the chance to drink a few beers while watching Byrne — and his “Sullivan & Son” castmates Ahmed Ahmed, Owen Benjamin and Roy Wood Jr. — perform stand-up comedy at the DC Improv this weekend.

You perform at the DC Improv nearly every year. Some comics say they love the staff and the low ceilings. Why do you come back?

Yeah, comedians love to trap the laughter, so maybe it’s cheating, in a way. The thing I like the most is: So many comedy clubs these days are part of these outdoor malls and it’s the worst. This is actually located in the city and there’s so much to do. Do you and your castmates hang out in the city during downtime?

Roy and I both have an appreciation of really bad food. We’re going to pitch a show to the Food Network called “Fat Bitches” where we just go and eat the worst things we can. One of my stops in D.C. is always Ben’s Chili Bowl. We always go there, whether it’s for lunch or right after a night of boozing. It’s great. Do you do touristy things, or is it mostly just eating and boozing?

It’s helped us become better comedians and it’s helped us become better actors. The show and stand-up has been a very symbiotic thing for all four of us. And everybody gets along — that can’t be faked. Vince Vaughn executive produces the show. How involved is he?

He’s there every taping. A lot of people are shocked by that, even a lot of the guest stars. He contributes quite a bit to the story. His big thing is making sure the story tracks, that everything stays on point. He’s just a great partner. You have a new special, “Champion,” available on Netflix. Why should people see you live this weekend, instead of just curling up and streaming the special?

“Champion” was something I busted my butt on. Now that I put “Champion” out there I’ve kinda shelved it. But the joke about being a champion, about flipping the perception of winning in a marriage, I wrote that a month before the special. I’m really proud of it and it’s still new to me, so I’m going to do that as a tent pole to get me through my other material that’s still fresh.

The MAX is one of two theaters inside the Signature, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a party this weekend.

Still Merrily Rolling Along Signature Theatre celebrates 25 years of risk-taking and rewards Eric Schaeffer and Donna Migliaccio, the co-founders of Signature Theatre, weren’t really dreaming big when it all started a quarter of a century ago. “We just thought, ‘Let’s hope we make it through another year,’ ” Schaeffer remembers. Moreover, even though he and the theater are nationally renowned today and around 80,000 people attend Signature shows each season, Schaeffer says, “A lot of that feeling never goes away. Which is kind of exciting.” The Arlington theater is 25 years old now — it’s celebrating this weekend with a giant party — and has seen some major transformations. The biggest challenge, Schaeffer says, came when Signature moved from a renovated auto bumper-plating factory to its current, two-theater location in Shirlington in 2007. “Our budget for the last year in the garage was $1.9 million,” he says. “And literally overnight our budget

“Yes, you have a business responsibility… But artistically you have a responsibility, too.” — ERIC SCH A EFFER, CO-FOUNDER AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF SIGNATURE THEATRE

went to $5 million. So it was, well, OK, where are you going to find $3 million?” They found it by sticking to Signature’s artistic vision. “The easiest thing to do [would be] to play it safe,” says Schaeffer, the theater’s artistic director. “And I said, ‘That’s the last thing we should do. We should do the exact opposite.’ ” That meant not only doing more obscure works, but staging world premieres and emphasizing works by new artists. “Yes, you have a business responsibility,” Schaeffer says. “But artistically you have a responsibility, too.” Signature’s adventurousness, Schaeffer says, keeps many writers, composers and actors coming back. “People can take risks at Signature,” he says. “They can fail and it’s OK. A lot of them feel Signature is a home for them, and that makes me really, really happy.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

Every anniversary deserves a good party, so Signature is throwing itself an open house on Saturday. The theme is “Don’t Even Try to Escape the Show Tunes Because They Will Find You Kick Kick Kick Ball Change Turn Jazz Hands.” OK, it’s not, but it might as well be. Many of the day’s events require free tickets; check the theater’s website for distribution details. Events include: The Signature Season Highlights Concert (noon, 2:30 and 5 p.m., MAX Theatre): Songs from the 2014-15 season will be featured, including selections from the kickoff show “Sunday in the Park With George,” as well as numbers from “Cabaret” and “Soon,” which will have its world premiere at Signature in March. The Signature Idol Competition (3:45 p.m., MAX Theatre): Five normal people (well, five normal people who are obsessed with musical theater) are winnowed down to one winner who will perform in the celebration’s finale, the Broadway on the Plaza concert at 8:30 p.m. Family Cabaret (12:15 and 2:45 p.m., ARK Theatre): Songs for young audiences get the big treatment with Signature talent. We can only imagine the battle for who gets to sing “Let It Go.” (We cannot confirm “Let It Go” is on the slate. Please don’t get your daughter’s hopes up.) 25 Year Sing-Along (4:30 p.m., Shen rehearsal room): Signature regular Stephen Gregory Smith sings an overview of the theater’s past quartercentury of musicals, along with an audience that is in no way as good as Signature regular Stephen Gregory Smith. Broadway on the Plaza (8:30 p.m., Plaza Stage): It’s outdoors, and it’s spectacular. Big names (from D.C. and Broadway stages), big voices and no big price tag — like everything else, it’s free. K.P.K. Signature Theatre, 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington; Sat., noon-10 p.m., free; 703-820-9771, signature-theatre.org.

SIGNATURE THEATRE

–The Washington Post

Signature staff members in 1993 were so excited to be moving into their new home, a retrofitted bumper-plating factory, and they just couldn’t hide it.

1989 Eric Schaeffer and Donna Migliaccio begin the first professional theater in Arlington County, performing out of the Gunston Arts Center. The first season’s budget is $28,000; the first play is Sally Nemeth’s “Mill Fire.”

1995-96 SEASON

1991-92 SEASON

2007-08 Signature launches The American Musical Voices Project, the largest musical theater commissioning program in the country. The program not only gives musical theater composers money, but underwrites the workshopping and presenting of their new musicals, some of which get their premieres at Signature. 2009 Signature receives the Tonys’ regional theater award, the second time a D.C.area theater takes the prize (Arena Stage won it in 1976).

Signature produces its first musical, Stephen Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd,” above. The company would eventually become nationally renowned for its productions of Sondheim’s works, producing at least one of his musicals per season. 1993-94 SEASON After a $300,000 renovation, a ratinfested, flooded, roofless old auto bumper-plate factory on Four Mile Run Drive in Arlington becomes the theater’s first home. Today, the building serves as Signature’s scene shop.

Signature’s “Cabaret,” top, and “Passion,” above, are reviewed in The New York Times, garnering the theater national attention. Sondheim himself comes to see the production of his “Passion.” 2006-07 SEASON The new complex in Shirlington, which includes two theaters as well as artistic facilities and office space, opens with Sondheim’s “Into the Woods.”

2014 Signature will kick off its 25thanniversary season with Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park With George,” opening Tuesday. The season also includes the world premieres of the musical “Diner,” based on the movie, with book by Barry Levinson and music and lyrics by Sheryl Crow; “Kid Victory,” which has music by John Kander (who also wrote the music for “Cabaret); and “Soon,” a musical about a woman who takes to her couch in the months before all water on Earth is set to evaporate.

A mysterious green light leads you to the entrance of The Sheppard.

Sip Back in Time “You can’t take photos in here,” a fancifully mustachioed man behind the bar at The Sheppard — the new speakeasy off of Dupont Circle — tells me as I pull out my phone to snap a picture of the bar. “But I’m a reporter,” I say. “Sorry, it’s our policy.” I knew this place was inspired by the Prohibition era, but I didn’t realize the technology usage had to match. I’m a little ruffled until the killjoy hands me an Opiate cocktail ($15) to smooth things over. It’s made with poppy and jasmine liqueurs, vodka and citrus, and what little bite it has is countered by a soft floral finish. All is right with the world. After chatting, I learn my trusty bartender is Jack Caminos, beverage consultant for The Sheppard. The New York native was tapped by owners Spike Mendelsohn (Good Stuff Eatery, Bearnaise) and Vinoda Basnayake (Kabin) to develop the hidden bar’s cocktail menu. On the drink list you’ll certainly see a Manhattan, Ramos Gin Fizz and Blood and Sand. (“It’s not just for winter months,” Caminos says of the smoky, scotch-based cocktail.) But Caminos also takes some liberties with libations, like the San Franpisco Sour (a Pisco Sour with a chamomile infusion). At least he serves them while wearing a tweed vest most of the time.

— A NDRE W ZIMMERN, “BIZARRE FOODS” HOST, WHO WILL BE AT THIS WEEKEND’S APPETITE FESTIVAL AT STRATHMORE

Do you ever worry about running out of material?

TRAVEL CHANNEL

SATURDAY

Andrew Zimmern

The ‘Bizarre Foods’ host co-headlines the Appetite Festival with a cooking demo and talk If it’s squirmy, stinky and edible, chances are Andrew Zimmern has tasted it. The star of Travel Channel’s bizarre empire (“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern,” “Bizarre Foods America” and “Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World”) headlines Strathmore’s Appetite Festival on Saturday. The two-day celebration (Giada De Laurentiis headlines Friday) includes cooking demos from local chefs and a beer garden. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS) You filmed an episode of “Bizarre Foods America” in Washington, D.C. Was there anything you ate that didn’t make the episode?

We did a wonderful meal with an Ethiopian family. That scene in its entirety is going to be in a show out this fall. Did you find anything remarkable

about the food scene in D.C.?

I lived in Adams Morgan for a couple months almost 30 years ago. D.C. is so radically different than it used to be. Little by little people have been exposed to dishes from around the world. It’s not like you have 700 Romanian restaurants just because there’s a Romanian embassy. I think the slickest thing

I remember being in a meeting at the Travel Channel [before “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” premiered], and the president handed me a laser pointer. There was a map of the world on the wall, and he said, ‘Show me the number of episodes we could film.’ After about an hour they shut me up. What’s something you ate recently that was better than expected?

I was just in Colombia and went upriver five hours to a village where the locals trapped caiman [a small alligator]. A lady lightly pounded it and pan fried it and added handfuls of lime juice and chilies and cooked it until the pan was dry. It was a world-class meal. What can we expect at this weekend’s Appetite Festival?

I’m going to be doing a talk for 30 minutes [Saturday at 7:30 p.m.] on what I do and why I do it. It’s a fun, polished presentation. We’ll have an interactive Q-and-A where folks can get up and personal with me. And I’m going to do a food demo. I don’t want to give away what I’m making, but it’s likely something people have never seen before. Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda; Fri., 5-9 p.m., & Sat., 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m., $44-$225; 301-581-5100, strathmore.org. (Grosvenor-Strathmore)

What the Cluck?!

You can’t help but feel a little sorry for the lettuce and tomato on Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken’s latest creation. It’s easy to overlook the roughage when it’s sandwiched between a fried chicken filet and an Old Bay doughnut ($9). Chef Elizabeth Masetti debuted the sandwich on July 23, when all 60 of them sold out within an hour. We’re surprised it took that long. The crunchy chicken and the fluffy doughnut combine for the perfect bite every time, and the right amount of Old Bay means the flavor is complementary, not overpowering. (Masetti tweaked the doughnut recipe for more than a month, eventually deciding to include some

Is it worth the calories?

Hunger Gains Meh

Yah!

Old Bay in the dough as well as a light dusting on top.) Sauce options include honey mustard, BBQ, ranch and Sriracha mayo (our pick). And while Astro doesn’t know the exact calorie count, we estimate that it’s — at the very least — 500. The sandwich is available until all the excitement dies dow n, which we can’t imagine w ill be a ny t ime soon. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

A Guide to Griffin’s Success ROSS D. FRANKLIN (AP)

The Redskins can talk all they want about having one of the NFL’s top receiving corps, but this upcoming season all comes down to quarterback Robert Griffin III. In 2012, Griffin was rookie of the year and the Redskins won the NFC East. In 2013, he had a still-mending knee and Washington fell to 3-13. As preseason looms, let’s look at five things Griffin has to do to spark a turnaround season. RICK SNIDER (FOR E XPRESS)

Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson agreed to a five-year, $70 million deal.

Peterson Made Highest-Paid Cornerback

ALEX BRANDON (AP)

NFL

1

Trust DeSean Jackson’s speed

There’s a lot of talk about chemistry, but Griffin needs to truly trust how fast Jackson accelerates downfield. Jackson hits another gear when he separates from defenders. In practice, Griffin sometimes underthrows Jackson on deep balls. Timing will come during August practices, but will the work lead to touchdowns in September? Jackson is a smaller target at 5-foot-10 so trusting him in the middle of the field will be tricky.

2

The brace is gone, but …

Griffin is running freely again, proving he’s finally overcome the knee injury from January 2013. The brace is discarded and he has shown intoxicating speed in practice when zipping past defenders. He’s the fastest Redskins player since Darrell Green retired in 2003. Griffin can’t answer the sirens’ calls every time, though. Three injuries in 2013 proved that. But his speed can be an asset occasionally.

3

RGIII can’t be RG Pick 6

Griffin was forced to stay in the pocket last year and his interception totals rose from five in 15 games in 2012 to 12 in 13 games in 2013. He was no longer taking advantage of linebackers who were suckered into playing the run by making the easier short pass. A revamped offensive line should give Griffin an extra second to find his target and help cut down on his interceptions. Otherwise, he needs to throw it away more.

4

Don’t fixate on Garcon

It’s easy to say Pierre Garcon won’t come near matching last year’s NFL-leading 113 receptions, with Andre Roberts and Jackson added and tight end Jordan Reed healthy. Last year, Griffin too often fixated on Garcon. Sure, the Redskins lacked options, but Griffin needs second and third reads to become primary targets. Garcon shouldn’t exceed 80 catches in this lineup, but he should have more than his 2013 total of five touchdowns.

5

Trust the scheme

Griffin appears to believe coach Jay Gruden trusts him more than predecessor Mike Shanahan did. Well, trust goes both ways. Gruden may give the third-year passer some latitude calling options at first, but if they fail then the coach will take over. And if that happens, Griffin needs to accept he’s not always in control. How the passer handles that situation will show whether it was the coach or the player that failed last year.

Raiders Moving to San Antonio? Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis, left, confirmed he has met with San Antonio officials but declined to disclose whether he has any interest in relocating the franchise to Texas. “Former San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros is a friend, and Henry suggested I take the opportunity to meet with some city officials while I was in town,” Davis said in a statement Tuesday night. “I have nothing further to discuss on the topic.” (AP)

Patrick Peterson is the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. Just ask him. Not only did he t weet out the terms of his new contract — five years, $70 million, $48 million guaranteed — he referred to himself as the highest-paid at his position at least five times in the Arizona Cardinals news conference announcing the new deal on Wednesday — twice before he was ever asked a question. He’s long maintained he’s the league’s best cornerback. Now he says he has higher goals — the playoffs, a Super Bowl title, the Hall of Fame. “He’s earned it,” Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said, “and I agree — he’s the best defensive corner in the league.” BOB BAUM (AP)

66

Seasons Vin Scully will be in the booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers after 2015. On Tuesday, the 86-year-old Hall of Fame announcer said he will return next season. The announcement was made in Korean, Spanish and English by players HyunJin Ryu, Yasiel Puig and Justin Turner on the Dodger Stadium video board in the second inning of the game against Atlanta.

Sports The Nationals and the Braves have been fighting for the NL East lead all season. But the Marlins and the Mets are still in striking distance if they can put together a run. Including the Nationals’ series against the Marlins, which ended Wednesday, Washington is in a stretch of five straight series against NL East opponents (with a makeup game against the Orioles wedged in on Monday). Here’s what the Nationals need to do in their upcoming matchups to take command of the division. JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

SCOTT CUNNINGHAM (GETTY IMAGES)

Tanner Roark won his fourth start in a row for the Nationals on Wednesday.

This Time Nats Hold On … Barely

Philadelphia has been the worst team in the division, but Jimmy Rollins and Marlon Byrd have had a few big games against the Nationals this year. In the Phillies’ three wins over Washington, Rollins, left, was 7-for-12 with three RBIs, a triple and two home runs. Byrd went 4-for-11 with two doubles and two RBIs in those three wins. While Nationals hitters are batting only .241 against the Phillies, they’ve scored 43 runs and have won six of the nine games. Washington opens a four-game series against Philadelphia today.

Nationals

4 3

STE VEN WINE (AP)

Finally beat the Braves This is an obvious one: The Nationals need to take at least two of three against the Braves when they’re in Atlanta Aug. 8-10. Assuming the two teams are still neck and neck in the division standings, this series could provide some distance in the short term. The Nationals have yet to take a series against Atlanta this year. They are 3-7 against the Braves in 2014 and were 6-13 last year. This season, the Nationals have averaged just 2.7 runs per game against the Braves and 4.4 runs a game against all other teams.

Washington is 5-1 against New York this season, with its lone loss a 5-2 defeat on May 17. The Nationals have dominated the Mets, outscoring them 35 to 20. Nationals pitchers hold a collective 3.27 ERA against New York, with the offense batting .284. However, the Nationals will need to pitch better to center fielder Juan Lagares, who is a .278 hitter this year but holds a .421 average against Washington with two home runs. Two upcoming series against the Mets are at home Aug. 5-7 and away Aug. 12-14.

Durant Won’t Rule Out D.C. Return NBA Kevin Durant’s contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder has an expiration date in 2016 and he will be the most in-demand free agent, with fan bases around the league already salivating about the prospect of having the league’s reigning MVP on their roster. When asked at the Team USA training camp in Las Vegas about the possibility of playing for the Wizards, Durant didn’t shoot down the notion. “We’re going to put it out on the table. It’s been talked about,” Durant said. “Every time I go on Instagram or Twitter, all my

Kevin Durant speaks to the media after a Team USA practice in Las Vegas.

friends ask me about it. … But I just tell everybody, ‘Look, I’m here in Oklahoma City. I love it here.’ Who knows what’ll happen? You never

can close a door on anything, but I like where I’m at right now. I can’t answer those questions.” The line of questioning put Durant in a difficult position because he has never wavered in his desire to win in Oklahoma City, but he has also never hidden his love for his hometown. “I grew up watching the Bullets, Wizards. I grew up taking the train to that arena, all the time, to watch Georgetown, the Bullets, the Washington Mystics,” he said. “That whole city is a part of me. It’s in my blood. I love going back home, seeing my family and playing there, but I love Oklahoma City, too.” MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Hearsay

GETTY IMAGES

As the Nationals prepared to take the field with a three-run lead in the ninth, they braced themselves for another comeback bid by the feisty Miami Marlins. This time the Nationals held on — barely. Drew Storen allowed two runs before securing the final out for his first save since August 2013, and Washington averted a series sweep by snapping Miami’s six-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Wednesday. “It’s not always going to be pretty,” Storen said. “It’s about getting it done. That’s all that matters.” Manager Matt Williams decided to rest closer Rafael Soriano, who hasn’t pitched since he blew a threerun ninth-inning lead in Washington’s loss Monday. That left Storen to try to finish off the Marlins, who had won nine of their past 10 games to rejoin the playoff race. Tanner Roark (11-6), who allowed one run in seven innings, won his fourth start in a row for the first-place Nationals. Soriano will be available today when Washington plays host to Philadelphia, Williams said.

Mystery Brawls Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber might have gotten into a fight 23

Broadcast Muse

Maggie Gyllenhaal says her “Honorable Woman” character is the most “truly formed” of her acting career.

On Topic

SHOWTIME

Escalating violence in Israel makes the Middle East-set “The Honorable Woman” more timely than ever. “I hope that the show will provide at least an hour once a week for eight weeks to think about what’s happening … in that part of the world,” Maggie Gyllenhaal says. “And it asks the audience to think and feel for themselves about it, which is exactly what’s needed just now.” (AP)

Perhaps you, like me, never found time to watch the first season of “Masters of Sex,” the Showtime series based on the real-life lives of sexologists Dr. Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson. But as I read rave reviews, I did grow curious as to just how sexy “Sex” is, so I jumped in for Season 2 (10 p.m. Sundays). Here are my findings. Since this is a family newspaper, I hope the Express censor does not redact my recap. OK. So Dr. Masters By Marc is married and has a Silver new crying baby but is [bleeping] Virginia, who has been helping him research what happens when a lady has a [bleep]. Veteran actor Beau Bridges plays a closeted gay university provost who looks at muscle man magazines in a futile attempt to [bleep] his wife. The wife of a young doctor comes to the hospital where he works, children in tow, and announces over the intercom that he is [bleeping] her sister. A hoity toity couple wants to sterilize their nymphomaniac teenage daughter. Clearly, there is a surfeit of sex. But not everything is revealed. While we see a lot of flesh (especially the female part that rhymes with “gipple”), bedsheets fall conveniently across [bleeps] and [bleeps]. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse

Masters of [Bleep]

From the Inside Out

‘The Honorable Woman’ explores a woman’s inner turmoil in the context of Middle Eastern tension

Television At its heart, the creator of “The Honorable Woman” says it’s the story of a family’s public and private life. The eight-hour miniseries, premiering 10 p.m. Thursday on SundanceTV, follows Baroness Nessa Stein, an Anglo-Israeli businesswoman who wants to span a raging divide with communication

cables laid between Israel and the West Bank. She’s plagued, however, by secrets from her past. “I was really intrigued with exploring the psychology of a woman within the chassis of a thriller,” said Hugo Blick, the show’s writer and director, who claims such British series as “The Shadow Line” and “Sensitive Skin” among his credits. “The issue of

intractable polarity, but with the chance of reconciliation, is what the story is engaged in.” Most of the conflict exists within Nessa herself. As a child, she witnessed the assassination of her father, an Israeli arms dealer. Now Nessa is determined to use the family business for peace. “It’s often the case that when people stand on the world stage it’s a diversionary technique from dealing with the very vacuum that’s inside themselves that they feel their role in public life can help them fill,” Blick said. Maggie Gyllenhaal delivers the most nuanced yet full-bodied performance you could hope to see. But the 36-year-old actress gives all the credit to Blick. “Hugo was the most trusting director I’ve ever worked with in my life,” she said. “And I’ve never,

ever played a character who was more fully, wholly, truly formed than this one. Hugo had written all eight episodes before we began, but so many things about her surprised me! So I would kind of walk into each scene knowing what I knew about Nessa, then see how it expressed itself. And then I would think, ‘OK, that scene happened. Now, where are we?’ ” “Maggie knew exactly where the character was traveling towards,” Blick argued. “Essentially all I had to do was go, ‘OK, I’ll put the camera here, because that’s the best place to witness her delivering this character.’ ” “It is much more interesting to watch an actor actually learning something,” Gyllenhaal persisted, “rather than watch someone pretend like they’re learning something. You can set up a situation for yourself that includes your own issues, terrors, strengths, and then put yourself in that situation, and when you do the scene you can learn many things. That was always what I was trying to accomplish. Nessa has to go through this journey,” she said, “and I went through it, too.” FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)

She Can Fly! NBC announced Wednesday that Allison Williams, left, will play the boy who refused to grow up in NBC’s new staging of “Peter Pan Live!” The 26-year-old actress plays Marnie Michaels on HBO’s comedy “Girls,” for which she has recorded several songs. “Peter Pan Live!” is a follow-up to the success NBC found with a live version of “The Sound of Music” in 2013 with Carrie Underwood. The musical will air Dec. 4. (AP)

OUTR AGE

Call Her a Diva — Fine. But Don’t Call Her a Vegan! Anne Hathaway demanded that she be given gluten-free vegan chocolate cake for a scene in her new film, “The Intern,” according to The New York Post. The scene called for her to take a bite of cake. A props assistant “was sent scurrying” (The Post’s words) for two three-layer chocolate ganache cakes. A rep for Hathaway said, “That’s completely false as Anne is no longer a vegan.”

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Death Ends Your Misery Chloe Grace Moretz told FLARE magazine that she doesn’t want to date seriously in her teens. The 17-year-old said she warns her friends, “You’re going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you’re going to get married … and then you’re dead!” On a softer note, she said, “It’s a tough age to fall in love.” (EXPRESS)

Chloe Grace’s bone structure is as hard and edgy as her hard, edgy little heart.

Katy Perry told Rolling Stone that she plans to have children with or without a male partner. “It’s 2014! We are living in the future; we don’t need anything. I don’t think I’ll have to, but we’ll see. I’m not anti-men. I love men. But there is an option if someone doesn’t present himself.” (E XPRESS)

Orlando Bloom does not look like he’s asking to be punched in the face.

UNBIA SED JOURNALISM

Go Orlando! Something aggressive transpired between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber on Wednesday at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain, TMZ reported. Eyewitnesses reported that Bloom either punched or shoved Bieber’s face. Sources are offering different explanations, though most versions involve Bloom’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr. Bieber allegedly partied with Kerr after a Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2012, when she and Bloom were still married. Several hours after the confrontation, Bieber posted a photo of Kerr to Instagram, then deleted it. (E XPRESS)
