Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood: 5 Things You Don’t Know About The New Netflix Gem

As the very mecca of cinema during its golden age, the back room of ‘Hollywood’, the new Netflix gem signed by Ryan Murphy, is full of curiosities and coincidences that make the Netflix series even more interesting.

Real places where it was filmed, the inspiration for the costumes or the hairdresser, anecdotes behind the cameras … Here are 10 things you did not know about this delicious fiction starring, among others, Darren Criss, Samara Weaving, Patti LuPone, Jim Parsons, Mira Sorvino, or Queen Latifah.

1) The mysterious casting of Samara Weaving

The actress who plays Claire Wood did the casting without knowing what production it was. The test consisted of reading a fragment of ‘With skirts and the crazy’, so she came characterized as Marilyn Monroe.

In addition, he asked for help from his father, who has a doctorate in the genre noir and watched all the movies and documentaries about female characters in the 1940s. Two months later, he discovered that Ryan Murphy was behind the project.

2) Each character, a color

HyperFocal: 0

During his first conversations with Samara, Ryan defined his character as a spider and, therefore, all his costumes were made in red and black tones.

But she is not the only one who wears a certain color range in her clothes. All the garments of Jeremy Pope, who plays Archie, are in golden tones. And Darren Criss, who plays Raymond, wears different types of rose.

3) Costumes inspired by real characters

The original looks of James Dean or Marlon Brando marked the style of Jack, embodied by David Corenswet. Holland Taylor (Miss Kincaid in fiction) helped costume designers by sending them photographs of her mother during the 1930s and 1940s. Half of the costumes featured in the series are handmade.

4) The photos of Kubrick and Hurrell

Snapshots taken in the 1940s by a very young Stanley and George Hurrell’s collection of Hollywood portraits have been the main source of inspiration for the costumes, makeup, and hair of the protagonists of the series.

5) The curious Parsons case

Jim wanted to get so far away from himself to play Henry Willson that he asked Eryn Krueger Mekash, the head of the makeup department, for a wig showing bald pieces, dark brown contact lenses, and fake yellowish teeth. But his commitment to the character went much further.

After choreographing the drag dance sequence himself, he sent it to Ryan Murphy, who was filming ‘The Prom’ with Meryl Streep, and, showing it to the actress, she said, ‘My gosh, she’s brilliant!’
