Mark O'Brien THE LAST TYCOON pilot still

Posted: June 13, 2016

MARK-OBRIEN - ARRIVALIf you're anything like us you're missing NL fella Mark O'Brien on your TV big time.

Oh sure, you could re-watch your DVD's of REPUBLIC OF DOYLE or stream season 2 of HALT AND CATCH FIRE again on Netflix, but if your hankering for something new - your prayers will be answered this Friday, June 17th as the pilot for THE LAST TYCOON makes its premiere on Amazon.


As you may recall this is just one of the roles that landed Mr.O'Brien on SEA AND BE SCENE TV's Ones to Watch List for 2016 (see episode here) so it's great to finally confirm a premiere date for you.

Mark will play Max Miner in the TV movie that "centers on Hollywood's first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s, Monroe Stahr (played by Matt Bomer/AMERICAN HORROR STORY), and the power struggle between him and his mentor and current head of the studio Pat Brady (played by Kelsey Grammer/FRASER)."

Lily Collins (MIRROR MIRROR) and Dominique McElligott (HOUSE OF CARDS) also star in the pilot written and directed by Oscar nominated Billy Ray (CAPTAIN PHILLIPS). 

Yes, it is indeed based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final, unfinished novel and if audiences enjoy this new spin - we can look forward to Mark et. al. in THE LAST TYCOON the series.  Fingers crossed!

Be sure to watch THE LAST TYCOON premiering Friday June 17th - only on
