Amazon has sadly canceled The Last Tycoon. I am very disappointed with the news. I wish we got to see more of the characters and the film Celia and Monroe were working on together. I loved the series and Lily’s role in it, sad for it to only have one season.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – It’s the latest belt-tightening move from the streaming giant.
Amazon has canceled its F. Scott Fitzgerald period drama The Last Tycoon, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

The decision arrives days after the retail giant/streamer made an about face and canceled another Fitzgerald drama, the previously renewed Z: The Beginning of Everything, starring Christina Ricci as the author’s wife, Zelda Fitzgerald.

Amazon had spent roughly $7 million during pre-production on the scrapped season of Z. The cancellations come as what sources say is larger belt-tightening going on at Amazon as the outlet looks for a large-scale hit.

The streamer is now beginning to rack up a series of one-and-done shows, with The Last Tycoon joining Z as well as its 1970s Newsweek period drama Good Girls Revolt joining drama Mad Dogs.

The pricey Tycoon was picked up to series last year and began streaming on Amazon on July 28. While Amazon, along with Netflix and Hulu, doesn’t release viewership information, the drama debuted to mixed reviews from critics (its score sits at 53 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and 57 percent on Metacritic).

The series starred Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer and Lily Collins, and its nine episodes centered on machinations of the Hollywood studio system in the 1930s.

The show is based on the unfinished novel of the same name by Great Gatsby and This Side of Paradise author, F. Scott Fitzgerald who centered the book on the character Monroe Starr, modeled after the producer Irving Thalberg.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERLily Collins is in talks to join Nicholas Hoult in Chernin Entertainment and Fox Searchlight’s J.R.R. Tolkien biopic.

Anthony Boyle, known for playing Scorpius Malfoy in the British play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, also has signed on for the film centered on the famed author.

In Tolkien, Hoult will play the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings book series that were later adapted into two Hollywood trilogies from Peter Jackson. Dome Karukoski is directing the project.

Tolkien, written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, explores the early life of novelist J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds love, friendship, and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts. When the horrors of World War I envelope Tolkien’s life, they threaten to tear this “fellowship” apart and he questions the very meaning and purpose of his art. Instead Tolkien finds a way to use these experiences as inspiration for his famous works, among them The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Collins will play Edith Bratt, Tolkien’s great love, and eventual wife who inspired the elven princess characters in the Lord of the Rings saga.

Collins was most recently seen in Marti Noxon’s To the Bone and Joon-ho Bong’s Okja, which are both on Netflix after playing at Sundance and Cannes respectively. She is repped by CAA, LBI and Definition Entertainment.

As some of you may or may not know, The Last Tycoon is now avaliable to stream on Amazon Video. The first pilot episode was released a year ago, but now the remaining 8 episodes are now avaliable to watch. The show is “an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel set in 1930s Hollywood, an era darkened by the Depression and the growing influence of Hitler.” Lily plays Celia Brady in the show. The show has become one of my favorites and I highly recommend you all watch it. It is definitely one of my favorite roles of Lily and she has done an amazing job. Please check it out if you haven’t! I am really hoping for a second season myself.

Since the show has now been out for a week, I have went ahead and added Ultra HD screen captures from all the episodes to the gallery. I won’t be home for about a week, so I thought it would be best to get them all added for you now who want to look at them. The captures do contain spoilers, view at your own discretion. Enjoy the beauty!

Photoshoots & Portraits > 2017 > Session 30 | The New Potato

THE NEW POTATO – We sat down with the beauty Lily Collins (#eyebrowgoals) – star of Amazon’s The Last Tycoon, which comes out tomorrow – to discuss everything from restaurants, beauty routines, body image and Renaissance fairs. The actress shared her love of tea (she prefers it to coffee), her affinity for gluten-free baking, and her dream dinner party (Audrey Hepburn makes an appearance). We know you’ll be as smitten with this interview – and her authentic nature – as we are; we’d even forgo our coffee-addiction if it means tea time with Collins…

From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?

I love oatmeal, so in the morning I would probably have some form of oatmeal with cinnamon and vanilla. I like it kind of sweet, so it tastes like a treat – like a dessert with some fruit. For lunch, I would probably try to keep it lighter, like a salad with grilled fish or a piece of salmon with some quinoa or a grain. I always have a Chai or Earl Grey tea at some point during the day. I don’t drink coffee; I’m a tea girl , that’s my form of caffeine. For dinner, I’m a huge sushi fan. I also love a really good Indian Curry. What I love the most about going out with my friends for dinner, though, is that they’ll surprise me, and we’ll go somewhere new. Sometimes, the surprise meals are the best because you can’t pre-plan your menu. For dessert, I’d go to Salt & Straw; I just went there for the first time, and they have the most amazing vegan coconut Stracciatella. I like places that have options. My ideal day would, honestly, be having someone take me out to experiment with different things.

How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

Working out is my private time. I love sweating to get out your emotions; I always feel better afterwards, always more energized and just more clearheaded. I always drink a lot of water, too, to really purify. I sometimes try to meditate with music, or just have quiet time. It really allows me to center myself and get away from the craziness of work and the city. I really believe in laughing and smiling a lot. I think it’s really important, because when you feel the most confident and the most happy, that’s when you feel your most beautiful and look your best. I always say that a smile is your best accessory.

What are your morning and nightly beauty regimens?

In the morning, I’ll wake up and splash some cold water on my face to wake myself up and then I use the Lancôme Énergie de Vie products. They’re designed to take get rid of all of the pollution your skin takes in from the environment; they’re very clarifying. I use the face wash, the serums, and the creams; they’re all amazing. I have to put on sunscreen to protect my skin; I’m really into Kiehl’s sunscreen. I use their lip balm as well. Obviously, at night, it’s always super important to take off your makeup. I must. I can’t go to bed with anything on. I’m a big fan of using the Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Cream at night; it’s not too thick, but it really moisturizes.

What’s always in your fridge and pantry?

I’m a big fresh produce person, so I always have fresh apples and other fruits and veggies around. I also love my tea, so I have a collection of teas. I love baking; I always have every baking supply that I could possibly need in case I get inspired. I like to have all the different gluten-free flours, extracts, dark chocolate, quinoa, some kind of grain, and obviously San Pellegrino and sparkling waters. You’ll also always find some form of takeout. If I go out, I don’t like leaving things, so I always take leftovers to go. If I get a salad, and I really like the dressing, I ask for a few extra to go, too, so I can put them on my own salads at home.

Photoshoots & Portraits > 2017 > Session 29 | WWD

WWD – Lily Collins had it easier than most imagining what life would be like for an ambitious scion of a showbiz family navigating the professional, personal and gender politics of Thirties Hollywood. In her new Amazon series “The Last Tycoon,” loosely based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel, she’s never far from the storied history that pervaded her youth.

Along with being a second generation star, the daughter of pop icon Phil Collins has been time-traveling to Tinseltown’s Golden Age since she was a kid, her mother Jill has long been involved in preserving, restoring and showcasing historical sites in the Hollywood region, including Beverly Hills’ grand 90-year-old Greystone Mansion, which serves as her character Celia Brady’s family home.

I grew up spending a lot of time there; I used to run around the hallways doing homework and watching people in the house,” Collins laughs. “So now it’s like it’s gone full circle.”

Collins chatted with WWD just before shooting a scene set during the 1937 Academy Awards ceremony — in the same Biltmore hotel ballroom where those actual Oscars were presented. “It plays with your mind,” she says. “You look around and everyone’s spotlessly perfect of-the-period, and you really forget that you have a cell phone waiting for you at your chair.”

Chief among the series’ extravagant effects is the lavish wardrobe concocted by costume designer Janie Bryant. “Celia’s the fashionista, really, of this show, and Janie gets to throw lots of different things on me,” Collins says. “My Oscar dress is pretty amazing. It’s a lilac silk tiered number in the back with this amazing sequined capelet.”

The ruched bodice, puff sleeves and the A-line skirt were crafted from silk and duchesse satin.

Taking on her first TV series since “Mad Men,” Bryant was ready to immerse herself in an entirely different place and time. “After eight years, as much as I loved working on that show, I felt ready to design something new,” she admits.

Everything about the Thirties is so different from the architectural, minimalist Sixties. The cuts, the parts of the body that are accentuated, the color palette. The Thirties is about being very soft and dusty, and silk charmeuse-y. Really, it is about the facade of Hollywood that the studios created, and all of the glamour that entails. They made sure the actors were untouchable.”
