Topfer Theatre at Zach
"...Is Mark Duplass the busiest man to emerge from the Austin film community? "Er, I don't know," he said. "I never thought of it that way." Yet considering he's wrapping one TV show, shooting another, and his latest film, Creep, debuts on Netflix today, he might want to reconsider...."
"...Jay Duplass was never destined to be a success. None of this had to happen..."
"...It started out as a sweet lovefest, the Duplass brothers taking the stage before their new film Cyrus unspooled to heartfelt applause and cheers. "We've been waiting for years to have one of our movies screen at the Paramount on Saturday night!" exclaimed Mark Duplass, to congratulatory cheers and applause...."
"...Out in sunny L.A., Jay Duplass is looking forward to coming back to Austin for a few days, back to the city where his filmmaking career first flourished. He even misses the swampy heat..."
"...Directed by: Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass. Starring: Mark Kelly, Steve Zissis, Jennifer LaFleur, Julie Vorus and Reid Williams...."
"...And now you're about to be utterly hooked on the new HBO series Togetherness. Created by the formerly Austin- and now Los Angeles-based filmmaking sibs Jay and Mark Duplass (The Puffy Chair; Baghead; Jeff, Who Lives at Home), the show revolves around the emotional minutiae of thirtysomething life and marriage in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of L.A...."
"...Directed by: Jay Duplass. Starring: Mark Duplass, Kathryn Aselton, Rhett Wilkins, Bari Dahan, Gerald Finnegan and Julie Fischer..."
"..."Indie veteran." Mark Duplass winces at the words, repeating them with mock astonishment as if it hasn't been nearly a decade since he and older brother Jay won over audiences at the Sundance and South by Southwest film festivals with their first feature, The Puffy Chair. The University of Texas alumni have since collaborated on four additional films (including Cyrus and Jeff, Who Lives at Home) while producing other indies, some of which Mark has also starred in between shooting five seasons of the FX sitcom The League...."
"...Directed by: Lynn Shelton. Starring: Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass...."
"...Cyrus, on the other hand, is Molly's son; she is his best friend, his playmate, and nothing – especially John – is going to come between them, not if he can help it. Such is the central conflict of Cyrus, the new film from brothers Mark and Jay Duplass...."
"...Directed by: Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass. Starring: Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Judy Greer, Susan Sarandon, Rae Dawn Chong, Steve Zissis and Evan Ross...."
"...It's 2002. Brothers and aspiring filmmakers Jay and Mark Duplass are sitting in Jay's small apartment on West Mary Street in South Austin doing nothing..."
"...the list is endless. Jay and Mark Duplass are not immune to the trope of the emotionally stunted male; in fact, they have built their careers on his very back, from their feature-length debut, The Puffy Chair (2005), to their mainstream breakout, Cyrus (2010), to Mark's role on the raunchy FX fantasy football sitcom, The League..."
"...Directed by: Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass. Starring: John C..."
"...It's silly, yeah, but now that we're watching the playback, we all have to agree that it's also more than a little creepy. By "we," I mean the crew there are six of us on the latest production from ex-Austinites Jay and Mark Duplass..."
"...Directed by: Charlie McDowell. Starring: Mark Duplass, Elisabeth Moss and Ted Danson...."
"..."Our relationship is that I keep trying to get Jay to make a movie, and he's like, 'It's not good enough, it's not good enough.' And a lot of the time, he's right, but I'm still pushing at him just to make it, so we have no choice but to make it good enough so we can do it." The goading that eventually produced the nuanced hilarity of The Puffy Chair began in earnest at Sundance 2004, when brothers Mark and Jay Duplass screened their short film "Scrabble," a follow-up to "This Is John," which had run the previous year in the festival's shorts competition. They vowed that in 2005, they'd return with a feature..."
"...Directed by: Colin Trevorrow. Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Karan Soni, Jake Johnson, Jenica Bergere, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Jeff Garlin...."
"...Directed by: Lynn Shelton. Starring: Mark Duplass, Joshua Leonard, Alycia Delmore, Shelton and Trina Willard..."
