I’ve added four more episode stills from “Halt And Catch Fire” to the gallery, all featuring Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan. These are from AMC’s official site from the series, and I do believe they all come from the first/pilot episode. Co-stars Scoot McNairy (Gordon Clark), Mackenzie Davis (Cameron Howe), and Toby Huss (John Bosworth) are featured in the stills as well. Enjoy!
I’ve added the first four episode stills available for “Halt And Catch Fire” which feature Lee Pace. Presumably, these are all from the pilot episode, which will air June 1st on AMC. My apologies for the delay in getting these uploaded to the gallery. The images are all HQ, so hopefully you’ll find some enjoyment out of them.
On March 15th, AMC brought their upcoming series “Halt And Catch Fire” to the annual South By Southwest festival in Austin, TX. Lee Pace was in attendance, along with Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishe, Mackenzie Davis, Toby Huss, creator Christopher C. Rogers and Christopher Cantwell, and executive producer Jonathan Lisco. You can see photos from the event (including the panel) in the gallery. I’ve also added an interview with Lee and Mackenzie from SXSW to the press archive; check out an excerpt below:
CraveOnline: What are your roles in “Halt and Catch Fire” as they pertain to the PC industry?
Lee Pace: I’ll start about Joe MacMillan. Joe is someone who comes from IBM. There was this phrase that our advisor told me about, The Wild Ducks. The Wild Ducks are the ones who left IBM and tried to start something else. There were a lot of them. So that’s what Joe is. He’s someone who’s leaving the corporate structure because this technology is such an exciting, fun wave.
He’s looking down the road and seeing the potential of this technology. In the pilot I have a line that sticks out. “Computers aren’t the thing. They’re the thing that gets us to the thing.” I just need to get people to build the computer that I want that I’m going to bring to the world. That’s why I get together with Gordon Clark and Cameron, so they can build my computer. So we’re making a computer. It’s really simple.
We’re just trying to make an awesome computer because in the world of tech, you’re either the most awesome or you’re out of business. Either you’ve got something that people want to spend your dollars on because everyone’s trying to fight for the same dollars.
So how do you get to be the guy who gets them? The show is very much about how now these phones in our pockets are such ubiquitous parts of our lives, and they’re great. They give us so much freedom and do the things that we need them to do but someone made that happen, lots of people working very hard together and fighting and collaborating to turn the mainframes into these.

In a new, short interview with Total Film magazine, Lee Pace talks about Guardians of the Galaxy — including what to expect from his alien warlord character, Ronan the Accuser. “He’s a true villain,” he says. He also talks about his interest in comics as a kid and even teases readers about his upcoming AMC drama, “Halt & Catch Fire.”
In the past 12 months, you’ve gone from sharing the screen with a dragon to appearing alongside a raccoon…
A raccoon with a machine gun! It’s been quite an interesting year. I don’t know if Ill ever play a human again! I was a vampire in Twilight, the King of the Elves in The Hobbit, and now an alien warlord in Guardians of the Galaxy…
You play the movie’s big bad, Ronan the Accuser. Was that a fun experience?
It was awesome! That movie’s going to kick ass! We’ve just knocked it out of the park; it’s going to be wild! I kept looking over at [director] James Gunn saying, “Is it too much? Am I over the top? Pull be back whenever you’re ready!” and he was just like, “More, more!” He’s a true villain!
Were you a comic book fan when you were growing up?
I’m a very curious person; I don’t leave any stone unturned. I remember being interested in comics, and I really liked the Silver Surfer. Guardians of the Galaxy is a bit deeper into the Marvel Universe, which I think is to its advantage. Iron Man was something that people were not super-familiar with when that movie first came out. I think people are certainly going to like this film, and I certainly hope they do. It’s fun!
You’re also starring in “Breaking Bad” producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson’s new AMC drama, “Halt & Catch Fire,” which is about the beginning of the personal computer industry…
I’m excited about playing what is going to be a very complicated character over a lot of years; to keep digging deeper and trying to find out more about who he is. It’s set in the early 80s, which was a fascinating time in American history, so it’ll be a cool world to play in. “Halt and catch fire” is a very early computing command, which means to shut down.
I’ve added four scans from the official movie guide of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug to the gallery. (These HQ scans are courtesy of yuna-ya — thank you!) The guide features what is essentially a Lee Pace article, complete with background on him as an actor and quotes on his Tolkien character, Thranduil. There are also some pictures, including a behind the scenes look of Thranduil on his throne and a great promo shot of him wielding his sword.
Way, way back – on November 4th – Lee Pace attended a special fan event for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Various actors from The Hobbit trilogy all joined together from various cities around the world for a live Q&A session with fans. Lee Pace was joined with Luke Evans and Andy Serkis in London, while Anderson Cooper served as the host with guests Richard Armitage and Orlando Bloom in New York; Evangeline Lilly was also involved. If you haven’t yet seen the full video of the interview, you can check it out below:
Three new, HQ film stills from The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug have been added to the gallery. Two of the images feature Lee Pace as the Elvenking, Thranduil, looking quite menacing with his piercing eyes. The third film still is of his lair, and you can see (I believe) Thranduil standing next to Thorin, played by Richard Armitage. I’ve also added a behind the scenes photo of Lee alongside Evangeline Lilly (playing the only female lead in the film, Tauriel) and their director, Peter Jackson.
I’ve added numerous promotional posters for Lee Pace’s upcoming film, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, to the gallery. There are a couple of banner posters (including one very big one) featuring a good portion of the main cast. You can also find individual, character posters – like the one of Lee as Thranduil, pictured above – for Tauriel, Thorin, Legolas, Gandalf, Bilbo Baggins, and Bard the Bowman.
LPO has been pretty slow on updates for this particular movie. My apologies! I promise I’ll be catching up in the upcoming days, including lots of magazine scans and some film stills. Stay tuned.
There are several new character banners for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, which you can view in the gallery. Lee Pace fans will be happy to see that he was highlighted in a poster of his own, lounging as King Thranduil. Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lily, Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, and a few dwarves are all featured as well. (Check out Evans’ Bard the Bowman banner for our first look at Stephen Fry in the film.)
