As a wee boy in Wales, Matthew Rhys was already working on his American accent when he and his pals played The A-Team. Some three decades on, that accent perfected, he awed audiences in The Americans as a Russian spy in deep cover. Now, in HBO’s new Perry Mason, he returns to TV with the origin story of the dogged defense lawyer, a staple of U.S. pop culture for almost a century.
Like the rhythm and horn players in a jumpin’ jazz band, A-list artists came together for The Eddy, the new Netflix series set in a Paris club. Its prominent producers (including La La Land’s Damien Chazelle) and performers (André Holland and Amandla Stenberg lead the cast) bring to life a city on the edge, where an expat and his pals find refuge in the music they love.
