‘DC’s Legnds of Tomorrow’

Twenty years ago, HollyWords’ CEO, then an actress, founded HollyWords Publicity (or ‘HWP’) because she needed a personal publicist and there weren’t any in Vancouver so she became one. Holly Carinci provides her clients with the wisdom and experience she’s acquired over her twenty years of working with Hollywood studios, networks, and the media, and she does it with the same energy that she had when she first began.

‘Shut Eye’

Today, Ms. Carinci and her team are leveraging their considerable qualifications by incorporating a unique business model that is light on infrastructure but heavy on returns for her company’s USA PR partner. In anticipation of the increase in business and the demands involved in nurturing future stars, HWP looks forward to introducing its new PR talent on this page in the very near future.

‘PRISON BREAK’ ACTOR CHRISTIAN MICHAEL COOPER DISCUSSES SHOW AND RECENT AWARDS On April 4, 2017, a new season of the hit television show Prison Break will air on FOX. Actor Christian Michael Cooper plays the role of “Mike,” aka Michael Scofield Jr., a young boy who is growing up without a father. The very talented and extremely upbeat 10-year-old actor has appeared on screen since he was 18-months-old and recently won both the Young Artists Award and the Young Entertainer Award for Best Young Actor in a Short Film for Sidekick. Christian was happy to discuss his career thus far. Meagan Meehan (MM):You’ve been acting since you were a baby! What are some of your earliest memories on set? Christian Michael Cooper (CMC): I can’t remember much about the early years with the commercials, but I do remember how fun it was working on the set of Cult. I remember the fun I had when I met Robert Knepper on set as he was a really nice guy. I also remember getting to drive away in a sports car with some stunt men as I was being kidnapped. That was pretty awesome too. MM: What have been some of the most fun characters you’ve played? CMC: That’s a tough one as I have really liked most of the roles that I have had. I would say the top three would be Shockwave/Billy on Sidekick, Max on Some Assembly Required, and Mike Scofield Jr. on Prison Break. MM: How did you land the role on Prison Break?

CMC: Well, I remember it taking a few months to land the role, as they went through two different auditions to find the right person, so I ended up doing three auditions in total to get this role. Because it took quite a few months to book it, I was super surprised and excited about it. READ MORE OF THIS STORY PAGE 18 | HWP Highlights

APRIL 3, 2017 | 08:57AM PT Christian Convery has been cast to play Steve Carell’s youngest son and Timothee Chalamet’s brother in “Beautiful Boy.” The Amazon Studios drama is being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner. “Beautiful Boy” is based on David Sheff’s book “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” as well as Nic Sheff’s “Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines,” about Sheff’s drug addiction and its impact on his family. Chalamet portrays Nic Sheff, while Convery plays Jasper Sheff, a happy seven-year-old who must deal with the serious effects drug addiction has on an older brother whom he adores. Chalamet starred in Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and will be released later this year by Sony Classics. Variety reported in 2015 that Felix van Groeningen (“The Broken Circle Breakdown”) had come on board to direct the movie. Cameron Crowe was believed to have been attached earlier, but the filmmaker subsequently left the project to direct “Aloha.” Van Groeningen directs the screenplay that he co-wrote with Luke Davies (“Lion”). Other cast members include Maura Tierney, Timothy Hutton, Amy Ryan, and Kaitlyn Dever. Filming began last week in Los Angeles. Convery starred in the television movie “My Christmas Dream,” and in episodes of “Supernatural,” “Lucifer,” and “Legion.” Convery is repped by Innovative Artists and Premiere Talent Management.
