Inside of You with Michael Rosembaum: Nestor Carbonell

Néstor Carbonell (Bates Motel, Lost) joins us this week and shares his experience coming from a family of Cuban exiles, following expectations of going to Harvard, and then using leverage to make a name for himself on one of the biggest shows of all time… Lost. Néstor was great this week.

We talked about his humble beginnings, and never ‘taking for granted’ his countless guest-starring roles.

We also talk about his curveball on The Dark Knight, handling rejection, and the funny story of his first gig in a Zest commercial.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Alum Sasha Pieterse To Topline MPCA Thriller ‘The Image Of You’; Nestor Carbonell, Mira Sorvino & More Also Set

EXCLUSIVE: Republic Pictures has snapped up rights to The Image of You, a recently wrapped thriller starring Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars) in dual roles. Pic is set for release via Paramount Global Content Distribution at a date that hasn’t been disclosed.

Parker Young (United States of Al), Nestor Carbonell (The Morning Show), Michele Nordin (Justified) and Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino (Shining Vale) also star in the film from MPCA (Double Life, Margaux) — an adaptation of the same-name novel from UK-based bestseller Adele Parks MBE, which Jeff Fisher (Killer Movie) directs from a script by Chris Sivertson (Monstrous).

The first project to emerge from a multi-picture deal between MPCA and Parks, The Image of You has Pieterse playing identical twins Anna and Zoe, who share a bond so close that nothing — and no one — can tear them apart. While Anna is romantic and trusting, her sister Zoe is daring and dangerous. When Anna meets charismatic Nick (Young), an ambitious stock trader, she thinks he’s perfect. But Zoe, who has seen Anna betrayed by men before, doesn’t trust him. She’s determined to discover the truth about Nick, no matter who stands in the way.

Sorvino and Carbonell play the twins’ wealthy parents, Alexia and David, who are harboring secrets of their own, with Nordin as Nick’s sister, Rebecca. Producers are MPCA CEO Brad Krevoy, David Wulf and Ernie Barbarash. MPCA’s Amanda Phillips, Lorenzo Nardini and Kaan Karahan are exec producing alongside AJ Riach.

‘Morning Show’ Reveals Premiere Date and First Look for Season 3

Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and the rest of the ‘TMS’ team return Sept. 13 after the pandemic-era second season that ended on a cliffhanger.

Your favorite Morning Show is back.

Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and the rest of the TMS team have picked up the pieces following the heavy pandemic-era cliffhanger broadcast the Apple series left off on.

The second season, which aired in November 2021, ended the show’s timeline in March of 2020 with the country on the cusp of lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic. When discussing possible projections around where The Morning Show could go following the finale, outgoing showrunner Kerry Ehhrin told THR at the time that she would be inclined to jump ahead, or even revisit the past, instead of picking up right where the show left off, indicating that the next chapter in the award-winning series would side-step COVID: “You could [jump into the future]. You could go backwards. It’s such an interesting little universe. You really can put it anywhere in time, and I think the challenge of the show is coming up with that big subject.”
