One of the most intriguing characters in the new series of House of Cards, is that of hacker Gavin Orsay played by Jimmi Simpson. The political drama, which is written and produced by Beau Willimon and stars Kevin Spacey as the Machiavellian politician Francis Underwood, is highly addictive and a breakout hit on Netflix.

One of the secrets of the show’s success is that it exposes the down and dirty machinations behind the sanitized spin we’re usually presented with in the media. Indeed, much of the House of Cards action is centered around not only the insider intrigues within the White House, but the power play between politicians and the press.

We’re first introduced to Orsay in House of Cards, when a Washington Herald journalist, Lucas Goddwin (played by Sebastian Arcelus), seeks out the help of the online collective Anonymous, after more traditional forms of investigation lead to nothing but dead ends. Wanting to maintain House of Cards’ consummate sense of authenticity, when Willimon delved into the world of the hactivist hive he sought advice from one of its most respected members, Gregg Housh, who is credited as being one of the people who put the iconic Guy Fawkes mask on the group.

When it comes to recreating reality, the devil is in the detail, and one such detail Willimon included in his fictional series as a result of his association with Housh has had positive repercussions in real life. In a scene in which Orsay is negotiating his way out from under the thumb of an FBI agent, he also requests that “all of Barrett Brown’s charges are dropped.” For the uninitiated, Brown is a talented and colorful Vanity Fair and Guardian journalist with a penchant for red wine and bubble baths, who is currently residing in a Texas penitentiary facing charges related to the sharing of a hyperlink. The case is potentially precedent-setting –– and with threats of a 105-year jail term, has had a chilling effect on journalism –– so a pointed mention in such a highly respected and successful show was lauded by Brown’s supporters, online activists, and journalists alike.

SuicideGirls spoke with Simpson by phone on a Saturday in early March. The actor, who has had memorable recurring roles in the TV series 24, Breakout Kings, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Psych, and prominent supporting roles in the films The Invention of Lying, Date Night, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and White House Down, among others, also happens to be a member of our community. Our interview was arranged during enforced downtime, while Simpson was awaiting surgery on his collarbone. Though under doctor’s orders to take things easy himself, he spoke to us while he was waiting for a group of his friends to jump out of a plane.

Brody Dalle has been the main attraction and driving creative force behind the last two band’s she’s founded and fronted –– The Distillers and Spinnerette –– so it’s about time she stepped out with an album under her own name.

Beautiful and badass, the 35-year old singer, songwriter and musician has been rockin’ hard for over two decades. Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, she escaped a dysfunctional family home by joining the all teen rock band Sourpuss in 1993, when she was just 14. Two years later, she met her future ex-husband, Tim Armstrong of Rancid, while doing a festival gig.

Dalle married Armstrong, who was 13 years her senior, at 18 and moved to Los Angeles, where she formed the highly respected punk outfit The Distillers. One EP and three albums later, after forces from inside and outside the band tore it apart, Dalle regrouped under the moniker Spinnerette, releasing the Ghetto Love EP in 2008 and an eponymous album in 2009.

By this time, she’d divorced Armstrong, and had married Joshua Homme of the desert rock bands Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal. Though the relationship with Homme provided the emotional stability and creative support she craved, postnatal depression following the birth of the couple’s first child, a daughter called Camille, seriously impacted the development of Spinnerette. Dalle began work on what would become her debut solo album, Diploid Love, shortly before she found out she was pregnant with her second child, a son called Ryder. The first song she’d written for the project was intuitively entitled “Meet The Foetus.”

Now fully formed, Diploid Love will be released digitally on April 29 and more tangibly on CD and vinyl on May 19. Though motherhood greatly influenced the gestation of the album, it hasn’t mellowed Dalle’s melodic punk rock power pop. The album is everything fans could want from Dalle, who wrote all the songs and played all the instruments bar a few notable exceptions involving guest players such as Nick Valensi (of The Strokes) and Michael Shuman (of Queens of the Stone Age).

SuicideGirls caught up with Dalle by phone before a rehearsal for her upcoming solo tour.

About Steel Panther

Steel Panther is the hottest band out of Hollywood since Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses and Poison ruled the Sunset Strip. Arriving in 2009 with debut album Feel The Steel –– which was hailed by Kerrang! magazine as “close to perfect” –– Steel Panther has won a legion of fans across the world. The band aimed even higher –– or one might argue even lower –– with their follow up album, Balls Out, which was unleashed worldwide through Universal Music on November 1st, 2011. The band’s third full length, All You Can Eat, may have come out this past April Fool’s Day but is no joke, being a veritable buffet of everything that makes rock & roll hard, fast, sticky, tasty, salty, and explosively awesome.
