'Americans' Actor Noah Emmerich on Directing His Co-Stars and That Henry Reveal

Spoiler alert! Stay away until you've seen the April 4 episode . What's up with Henry? It's not just a question viewers have been asking this season, but also one Philip and Elizabeth were pondering in this week's episode after a surprising and fun scene at their son's school. Henry, it turns out, is a mathlete. "That was actually a really fun moment to get to play with," said Noah Emmerich, who directed this week's episode, during a call with reporters. "I thought that was a great opportunity to have a little bit of the wonderful comedic timing that Matthew [Rhys] and Keri [Russell] share." With Paige requiring so much hand-holding, Philip and Elizabeth clearly haven't been on top of Henry, noted Emmerich, who plays Stan on the show. "It's really a surprise — and the Jenningses are not often surprised, certainly not by a member of their own family," he said. "So it was a nice opportunity to show how in these busy, chaotic lives that they lead, with so many responsibilities and so many distractions, that they've actually lost track to some degree of the progress of their own son." The scene was fun, as was the entire directing experience, said Emmerich, who made his directorial debut during Season 3. "The biggest difference between the first time and the third time is really just the level of anxiety and fear," he said. "The first time of anything has that pretty large fear factor, especially if it's a large responsibility and such a fast-moving, massive production. By the time I got to this season's episode, I really did feel a lot more confident, a lot more comfortable in this position." Of course, having such strong connections with the people he was directing helped, Emmerich said. "Like a good relationship, you know each other's rhythms, you know each other's sensitivities, you know each other's triggers, and it makes for an easier dynamic," he said. The Henry storyline provided some light moments, but this week's episode also contained a gut-wrenching scene involving Philip's other son, Mischa, whose journey hit a major obstacle. It was a "pivotal scene" for Gabriel, who is clearly conflicted about depriving Philip of the chance to meet his son, Emmerich said. The image of the "two sort of heartbroken souls having to resolve this together" was "one of the more critical scenes of the show," he said. Stan's newish love interest made a quick appearance in the episode, leading Philip and Elizabeth to question whether the newcomer might actually be… one of them. That's yet to be determined, but Stan is "oblivious," Emmerich said. "I think Stan is just completely enamored and happy and feels like he's got the healthiest relationship he's ever had." And then, there's the Russia of it all. Show creators Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields previously expressed surprise at how relevant The Americans has become in its fifth season. Emmerich said he tries to keep current events out of mind while he's acting and directing. Since the show takes place in the mid-'80s, "it would be inappropriate to have the future in your head," he said. But, "it is bizarre, outside the show, for our audience," he said. "It has a new resonance and a new power, I think, and a new immediacy that makes the period piece feel more relevant today." div.post p { text-align: justify; }

The Americans': What Was the Karl Marx Book Pastor Tim Gave Paige?

(Some light spoilers ahead for the March 28 episode of The Americans on FX.) This week on the FX original series The Americans we revisited one of the shows most important conflicts: the uneasy alliance between the Jennings spy family and Pastor Tim. Despite what Past Tim (Kelly AuCoin) and his wife Alice (Suzy Jane Hunt) know about the Jennings namely, everything important theyre once again playing nice, even going so far as to let Paige (Holly Taylor) babysit their new baby. It may not be the best idea ever, considering Paige ends up going through all their stuff and reading Pastor Tims diary while theyre out, but it doesnt appear as though they know that Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) are bringing Paige into the Russian spy fold. ...Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/the-americans-what-was-the-karl-marx-book-pastor-tim-gave-paige/

5 Reasons We Love Watching: 'The Americans'

It's the peak drama of the Peak TV era, featuring two of television's most compelling performances and engrossing stories that, while rooted in decades-old conflicts, feel chillingly relevant. Critics have been raving about this FX show since its premiere in 2013, and Emmy voters finally came around after Season 4, nominating the show for Outstanding Drama Series and Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys in the lead acting categories. As if that weren't enough, here are a few more reasons to check out The Americans . 5. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play Russian spies living among ordinary American families in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. And their disguises are ev-er-y-thing.   Philip as Clark. Elizabeth as Clark’s sister. Elizabeth and Philip as U.S. government agents. Philip as Patty's brother. 4. In a television rarity, the kids don't suck. Paige has become a major player, moving the plot along in important ways. Meanwhile, Henry typically is MIA until there's a real reason for him to appear.       3. The Americans uses music better than almost any other show on TV.   From the very beginning, this show went all in with evocative '80s jams. Closing the pilot with Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" was a bold move that paid off. It's somewhat surprising, but ultimately to the show's credit, that it took three and a half seasons for this iconic Queen song to be dropped into the mix. 2. The storylines are shockingly / surprisingly / depressingly relevant.   The Americans and America pic.twitter.com/5MI0Yh2jHN — Dru Menaker (@drumenaker) March 3, 2017 1. Whether she's taking down the enemy or teaching her reluctant daughter how to swim, Keri Russell's Elizabeth is a badass boss.         The Americans is airing its fifth season on FX now.
