‘The Girlfriend Experience’: Why Riley Keough Sizzles (Emmy Video)

11 July 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You know it when you see it. A star on the rise.

Casting “Magic Mike,” Steven Soderbergh saw an audition tape for then-22-year-old model-actress Riley Keough—whose genetic blessings from grandfather Elvis Presley and mother Lisa Marie are self evident—and hired her sight unseen for a small role as stripper Nora, where she learned all about “underwear and spray tans,” she told me in our video interview. She first met Soderbergh at a “Magic Mike” staff dinner with her co-stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and her romantic interest Alex Pettyfer, to whom she was briefly engaged.

Five years later, “The Girlfriend Experience” producer Soderbergh cast Keough to carry the 13-part Starz half-hour series “The Girlfriend Experience,” now adapted from his 2009 film by indie writer-directors, Amy Seimetz (“Sun Don’t Shine”) and Lodge Kerrigan (“Claire Dolan”). Reviews and Emmy buzz are strong.

Following the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah spent the opening portion of Thursday's episode examining the issue of police brutality and the growing divide between law enforcement and citizens. "You shouldn't have to choose between the police and the citizens they're sworn to protect," Noah said.

"Two videos in two days of police fatally shooting two black men who, when you watch the video, did nothing to warrant them losing their lives," Noah said. "The hardest part of having a conversation surrounding police shooting in America, »

The 20 Best Trailers of the Last 20 Years

7 July 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We live in a world where there are trailers for trailers. While it’s still essential to a film’s marketing, trailers are no longer mere primers for upcoming movies; they’ve become standalone events.

Sometimes, however, they’re better than the real thing. When a big movie is boiled down to its essence, trailers can provide the thrill of a blockbuster without the bloat. Slices of advertising can promise a moviegoing experience that can’t compete with the reality.

Below, we’ve charted a brief history of the American trailer over the past two decades. (A quick note: we’ve limited ourselves to one per director, so if you don’t see undisputed gems like “The Social Network” or “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” know that we haven’t forgotten them.)

Simple shadows. Telling words. Awed expressions. These practical effects, concise verbiage, and stock shots were »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Seinfeld’ premiered

5 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 27 years ago today, in the final months of the 1980s, that the one of the defining shows of the 1990s, Seinfeld, premiered. Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David launched the “show about nothing” though they’d been asked to put together a 90-minute TV special. A season pick-up at first seemed unlikely after the pilot airing, but NBC execs ended up finding the money to order more episodes by making one fewer Bob Hope special, and the show of course went on to become one of the most successful and beloved comedies in television history, giving us the Soup Nazi, the Festivus pole, George’s musical answering machine, and a showcase for a quartet of four core comedic talents. Other notable July 5 happenings in pop culture history: • 1954: The BBC broadcast its first daily television news program. • 1954: Elvis Presley recorded his version of “That’s All Right.” • 1968: »
