'Mad Men': Neve Campbell on her plane ride with Don Draper

14 April 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In season 5 of Mad Men, Gilmore Girls’s Alexis Bledel played a sad suburban housewife that Pete Campbell couldn’t resist. Last season, Don Draper had an affair with his neighbor’s wife, played by Freaks and Geeks star Linda Cardellini. So it made some sense that last night, during the season premiere of Mad Men, the mysterious beauty who shared a red-eye flight with Don was played by none other than Neve Campbell — also known as the star of Party of Five. If Don Draper doesn’t have a specific type, Matthew Weiner does.

Five Things You'd Never Know About Bob Saget

12 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bob Saget is no Danny Tanner. But he's not quite the bawdy, vulgar guy he's sometimes made out to be, either. He hangs out somewhere in the middle. Before signing copies of his new book, Dirty Daddy, at Books-a-Million in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Saget interrupted his interview with People to answer a customer's call on the store's ever-ringing phone. The sound was a distraction, but that wasn't the only reason he picked up the receiver. "I wanted to help them!" Saget, 57, told a mortified store employee. In his book, the comedian and actor reveals more about himself than »

Shirley Jones Talks Frank Sinatra, Gordon MacRae at TCM Opening Night Gala

11 April 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Old Hollywood glamour was in the air on Thursday as Shirley Jones, Maureen O’Hara and Kim Novak turned out for opening night of the TCM Classic Movie Festival.

The fifth annual fest kicked off with the world premiere of the restoration of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” at the Tcl Chinese Theatre.

Prior to the screening, TCM host Robert Osborne invited Jones, who made her film debut in “Oklahoma!” at age 18, onstage for a Q&A.

Jones said she had not planned to go into show business at all when was asked to participate in an open audition for the lead.

“I was in New York and I was on my way to college to become a veterinarian,” Jones explained. “I went and auditioned for the casting director, and he in turn called Mr. Rodgers in to hear me personally and he called Oscar Hammerstein to hear me personally, »

The next 10 acts the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame should induct

10 April 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that the Kiss Army has gotten its due and their heavy metal heroes will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame tonight at Brooklyn's Barclays Center (along with Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Linda Ronstadt, and Peter Gabriel), here are 10 more acts that are definitely worthy of inclusion. Some have been nominated numerous times (like Chic) and never gotten voted in, while others, as impossible as it seems, have never even made it onto the ballot. These 10 are presented in alphabetical order: Bon Jovi: Say what you will and there are just as many people vying to keep Bon Jovi out as are fighting to get them in (if not more), but after Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi is the biggest musical act to come out of New Jersey. Bon Jovi, who was on the ballot in 2012, has dominated the world for »

Why Simon Cowell doesn't want to see his son go to the dogs

10 April 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Britain's Got Talent judge is dreading the day little Eric asks for an audition

Behold, the Britain's Got Talent judges, who hilariously brought along their dogs to the show's official launch this week, in a stunt that neatly lays to rest any suggestion the format may have run out of ideas. Otherwise, the event was notable only for an uncharacteristically telling comment by Simon Cowell, who voiced horror at the idea of his own son, little Eric, wanting to audition one day. "I'm kind of dreading that moment," he revealed. "'Daddy, can I go on one of your shows?'"

Well quite. One can't imagine anything more ghastly for one's pride and joy. No doubt Rupert Murdoch has similar nightmares about his daughters wanting to be on Page 3, while Tony Blair shuddered at the thought of his boys joining the army. Happily, none of these fathers need worry. »

Exclusive Portrait: In Memory of Comedian John Pinette

8 April 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Comedian John Pinette passed away on April 5th, at the age of 50. The rotund jester was named Stand-Up Comedian of the Year at the American Comedy Awards in 1999, and appeared in the films “Duet,” “Dear God” and “The Punisher.” He is probably best remembered as the hapless portly man who gets harassed by the cast of “Seinfeld,” which led to the courtroom sequence of the final episode in 1998.

Pinette was born in Boston, and after college pursued a career in accounting. Friends advised him to go into stand-up comedy, and he broke in as a warm-up act while touring with a late career Frank Sinatra. In 2004, he played Edna Turnblad in the touring cast of the musical “Hairspray,” and eventually took over the role on Broadway. He continued his stand-up act around the country, and passed away in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on April 5th, 2014, while on tour.

Patrice Wymore obituary

25 March 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Singer, dancer and actor whose Hollywood career was overshadowed by her marriage to Errol Flynn

The gifted singer, dancer and actor Patrice Wymore, who has died aged 87, had the misfortune to be typecast in secondary roles at Warner Bros studios in the 1950s, and to be known as the third wife of the Hollywood star Errol Flynn.

The 23-year-old Wymore and the 41-year-old Flynn got married after co-starring in Rocky Mountain (1950), a minor western in which he played an army officer who rescues her from marauding Indians, though they had no love scenes together on screen. It was Wymore's second film, while Flynn was a veteran of more than three dozen movies. It was the beginning of her film career, while his was on the slide. Both were under contract to Warner Bros.

At the time, MGM musicals reigned supreme, though Warner Bros had Doris Day, a top box-office singing star. »

On the trail of a con man

22 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Richard John Taylor had no problem attracting investors to his films. After all, he was a senior editor on EastEnders, ran a production company with Louis Theroux and had a lucrative deal with ITV. There was only one problem…

At the end of Tina Renton's book, You Can't Hide, she thanks her friend Richard John Taylor for everything he's done for her. Taylor, a film-maker, had become a saviour of sorts. He had met her through Rape Crisis in August 2011 when she was at her most vulnerable, befriended her, gave her a job as his personal assistant and made her feel worthwhile again.

Renton's story was as inspirational as it was shocking. She had been abused by her stepfather from the age of six. At 14, she told her mother, but her mother said if she went to the police, the family would be left homeless. She threw her partner out of the house, »

Recommission: The Making of RoboCop

Trevor Hogg chats with production visual effects supervisor Jamie Price and visual effects supervisor Nordin Rahhali about bringing a robotic enhanced law enforcement officer to the futuristic streets of Detroit once again...

“I saw the original in the theatre when it came out in 1987,” recalls Jamie Price (The A-Team) who was chosen by filmmaker José Padilha (Bus 174) to supervise the visual effects for RoboCop (2014).  “I watched it and the sequels again before we made this movie to re-familiarize myself because sometimes your recollections don’t always match the reality of it.  One of my first questions to José was, ‘What approach are you thinking for the movie?’  In a lot of ways the original is untouchable.  He had the same feeling and was clear that we weren’t remaking RoboCop.  We were making our version of it.”  The subject matter would be the same though the tone shifted away from »

Landmark Loew's Theatre In Jersey City In Legal Dispute

10 March 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

For many years an ad hoc group of volunteers struggled to save the landmark Loew's Theatre in Journal Square, the hub of commerce in Jersey City. The one-time movie palace had been allowed to disintegrate into a crumbling ruin by the 1980s and was slated for the wrecking ball. Concerned citizens from within and outside the city formed a group called The Friends of the Loew's. Working with sometimes reluctant city officials, they got landmark status on the theater where young Frank Sinatra saw Bing Crosby perform and became inspired to become a crooner himself. As the theater was painstakingly restored over a period of decades, crowds have been flocking to see presentations of classic movie screenings as well as live concerts. The theater is not 100% restored, however, and is still suffering from a lack of funding to pay for essential repairs such as the air conditioning system. »
