Empire Control Room
"...Meanwhile, she meets the comic book superhero artist living in her employer’s home (seemingly without the employer’s knowledge or permission), and she begins to wonder if there is something more to life than fake marriages and carpet cleaners. Produced by Kelly Williams, and starring Kerri Lendo, John Merriman, Byron Brown and Chris Doubek...."
"...Double Time: Actor Chris Doubek and his comedy of riches..."
"...Actor and L.A.-transplant Chris Doubek's first job on a Hollywood film was as an actual caterer. From then on, he's apparently been typecast – be it "reality" or "movie-reality." During his first gig with Richard Linklater in 2006, Doubek starred as "the hand opening the hamburger in Fast Food Nation." You may have missed it..."
"...A night of questions, coping and debauchery immediately follow. Cast: Adriene Mishler, Jonny Mars, Alex Karpovsky, Chris Doubek, Todd Berger (World Premiere)..."
"...Shot almost entirely within the confines of Austin Film Society board member Deborah Green's labyrinthine Park City, Utah, mansion – the site of the society's annual Sundance Film Festival parties and the Austin film community's unofficial Utah headquarters – Lovers of Hate follows the sideways spiral of the woeful Rudy (Chris Doubek), a failed writer recently separated from his wife, Diana (Heather Kafka), who's had all the Rudy she can take and ends up falling for Paul (Alex Karpovsky), Rudy's sibling rival, a successful writer of children's books. Extremely awkward quasi-hilarity (and no small amount of self-loathing from virtually the entire, uniformly excellent cast) ensues...."
"... Complications with the business jeopardize his dreams for a hot dog-free future. Cast: Paul Gordon, Jonny Mars, Chris Doubek, Liz Fisher, Amy Meyers-Martin (World Premiere)..."
"...Chris Doubek (Good Night, White Reindeer, A Teacher, Computer Chess)..."
"...While this zany cast of characters provides plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, the locations themselves function like quieter punchlines set in the background of each shot: the cheap motel, the YMCA, the bar where locals park themselves under the same neon beer signs night after night. Even the half-finished houses on newly developed plots suggest perpetually deferred hopes of upward mobility in a small town; one belongs to Orlando's brother Romeo (played by Chris Doubek), who dreams of being Priddy's mayor, but seems doomed to be forever mayor pro tem...."
"..."The hardest thing isn't making the picture, it's getting people to watch it." Austin audiences will have a chance – their first since The Happy Poet's sold-out world premiere at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival – at a screening June 3 at the Marchesa Theatre meant to fundraise for the film's screening at New York's Rooftop Films Summer Series this summer as well as an international festival run. Cast and crew will be in attendance, which should prove especially illuminating considering Gordon wrote the major roles with the actors (including Chris Doubek and Liz Fisher) already in mind...."
"...The occasion will also mark something of a homecoming: Poyser shot the bulk of his feature film Lovers of Hate in Park City, Utah, last winter. A black comedy about two brothers and the woman caught between them, Lovers of Hate – which we think is pretty terrific, by the way – stars local actors Chris Doubek, Heather Kafka, and Alex Karpovsky..."
"...Poyser has been quietly filming in Park City, Utah, home of a certain film festival that is not named South by Southwest, in recent weeks and followed that with Austin shoots. Megan Gilbride is producing, and the cast is intriguing: Austin native Heather Kafka (who first made her mark on MTV's Austin Stories), Alex Karpovsky (whose film Trust Us, This Is All Made Up premieres at SXSW this month), Chris Doubek, and Zach Green..."
"...The acting this week has been excellent, according to anyone you ask, running from an emotional workout between Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and Anne Ramsay (Mad About You) to a free-range, Altman-esque comedy jam session between Judah Friedlander (American Splendor), McGuire, and one of Austin's best actors, Chris Doubek. "The actors all like each other, and they like us and we like them," notes co-producer Seth Caplan..."
"...More remarkably, this production at times captures Beegle's complex emotional portraits with precision and style. Chris Doubek brings a somber resignation to the role of Lionel, the novel's "last man," and the ever-reliable Robert Newell shifts smoothly from effete Percy to elegant Astaire to gruff monster..."
"...Three men are considered here, three young but longtime and philosophically diverse friends. Jon Watson, David Stahl, and Chris Doubek know just what they're doing as these characters, and director Sarah Richardson puts a fine polish on the proceedings..."
"...KRISHA Director/Screenwriter: Trey Edward Shults When Krisha returns for a holiday gathering, the only things standing in her way are family, dogs, and turkey. Cast: Krisha Fairchild, Robyn Fairchild, Bill Wise, Chris Doubek, Olivia Grace Applegate, Chase Joliet, Alex Dobrenko, Bryan Casserly, Augustine Frizzell, Trey Edward Shults (World Premiere)..."
"...18-25) announced their first wave of programming, including Centerpiece Film Flight, which stars Denzel Washington and marks director Robert Zemeckis' return to live-action drama after a decade almost entirely devoted to motion-capture family films (A Christmas Carol, Polar Express). Also of interest: the world premiere of Austin filmmaker Don Swaynos' comedy Pictures of Superheroes, teeming with this town's funnypeople elite (John Merriman, Kerri Lendo, Byron Brown, Shannon McCormick, Chris Doubek); University of Texas alum Todd Berger's comedy It's a Disaster, starring Julia Stiles, America Ferrera, and David Cross (and recently picked up for distribution by Oscilloscope); and Austin documentarian T.C..."
