New York Times: After ‘Rocketman’, Taron Egerton Transforms Again for ‘Black Bird’


Written by Tiffany on July 06 2022

nytimes.com -The 32-year-old plays an imprisoned drug dealer facing an unusual choice in the Apple TV+ series, written by Dennis Lehane.

Taron Egerton channeled a pop god in the Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” winning raves — and a Golden Globe — for his portrayal of how a shy piano prodigy blossomed into an international superstar.

But in his latest role, as a convicted drug dealer in the new Apple TV+ drama “Black Bird,” he had no outlandish sunglasses or feather boas to cast off when shooting wrapped each day. For “Black Bird,” which is based on a true story, he had to cast off something darker: the confessions of Larry Hall, a man convicted in connection with one girl’s death who was suspected to have kidnapped, raped and killed many more.

“As much as it was a great experience creatively, there were days where I went home feeling like, I don’t really want to listen to this stuff anymore,” Egerton, whose character’s task is to elicit those confessions, said in a recent video call from his London kitchen.

Egerton, 32, who has lent his soulful tenor voice to characters both flamboyant (John) and furry (the mountain gorilla Johnny in the animated musical “Sing”), could have taken his pick of just about any musical role after “Rocketman.” And then there are those chiseled good looks and piercing green eyes, which seem to beg for a cape and spandex.

Instead, he wanted his next major on-camera role to be one that showed the world he was more than a song-and-dance man.

Written by Tiffany on April 01 2022

In With the Devil has been renamed to Black Bird. Apple released 2 new images of Taron as James Keene. Read below for more information on the show and when you can watch it!

Variety.Com – “Black Bird,” a limited series starring Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser, will premiere on Apple TV Plus this July 8, the streamer announced Thursday.

Based on James Keene and Hillel Levin’s true crime memoir “In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption,” “Black Bird” stars Egerton as Keene, a police officer’s son who is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security prison for drug dealing. While serving his sentence, he is offered a chance for early parole, on the condition that he move to a prison for the criminally insane and befriend serial killer Larry Hall (Hauser). Keene reluctantly agrees to the unusual case, and develops a complicated relationship with Hall as he attempts to discover the truth behind the murders the convict is suspected of committing. In addition to Egerton and Hauser, the series also stars Sepideh Moafi, Greg Kinnear and Ray Liotta.

“Black Bird” will premiere the first two episodes on July 8, followed by new episodes every Friday. The limited series will run for six episodes.

Taron Egerton, Paul Walter Hauser to Star in Apple Series Adaptation of ‘In With the Devil’


Written by Tiffany on January 26 2021

Variety.com – Apple is nearing an order for the limited series “In with the Devil,” with Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser onboard to star, Variety has learned.

The six-episode series would be based on the 2010 novel “In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption” by James Keene and Hillel Levin. The book tells the story of Keene’s real life when he was sentenced to prison but offered his freedom in exchange for coaxing a confession out of a fellow inmate, a suspected serial killer.

The series is described as being told through the lens of an intimate relationship between two prisoners, exploring the lengths that people will go to in order to seek redemption, if true absolution is ever really possible, and if so, at what costs. Egerton would star in the Keene role.
