To Kill a Mockingbird Is Coming to Broadway - and People Have Feelings

10 February 2016 9:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

One of the most iconic Great American Novels is finally coming to the stage. Producer Scott Rudin acquired the rights to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and hired Aaron Sorkin to adapt the novel and write the script (the two have previously collaborated on Moneyball, Steve Jobs and The Social Network.) "To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most revered pieces of 20th century American literature," Sorkin told the New York Times. "It lives a little bit differently in everybody's imagination in the way a great novel ought to, and then along I come. I'm not the equal of Harper Lee. »

Dang, Bruce Willis, How Did You Get So Good at Bowling?

9 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Say, which member of the Pulp Fiction cast would be the best at making your child cry during their 11th birthday party? That would be Bruce Willis, who "Page Six" reports was seen rolling a whopping 286 at a Misery after-party at a bowling alley Saturday. And he did it in between "drinking vodka and showing off his dance skills." Yippee-ki-yay! Tell us, Bruce Willis: How did you get so good at bowling? Is it because of your resemblance to a bowling pin? Did Steve Buscemi teach you during the production of Armageddon? Or maybe, is Joseph Gordon-Levitt about to start practicing? »

Louis C.K. Takes High-Wire Gamble With 'Horace And Pete'

5 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fans of stand-up comedy know that Louis C.K. is kind "The King" at the moment. Every era has its "big" comedian. Carlin had his period; so did Pryor; so did Murphy; and Seinfeld; and Ellen; and even Dane freakin' Cook. They all became these stand-up comedians that transcended the medium and became hugely influential stars. C.K. is that guy right now, and has been for a few years already. His hit FX series Louie has won countless awards, his stand-up specials are events, and he's used this spotlight to do some truly trailblazing things.

A couple of years ago, when he self-produced his Live At The Beacon Theater special, he did something quite radical. Rather than having it air on HBO, or Comedy Central, or Netflix, he very conveniently just threw it up onto his website for the nominal fee of $5. It was cool. I did it. Paid five bucks on Paypal, »

Louis C.K. Talks "Horace and Pete" Series

5 February 2016 1:49 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Surprising fans on Saturday with a new multi-cam web series entitled "Horace and Pete," comedian Louis C.K. has now spoken about the show as a new episode is scheduled to drop tomorrow on his website.

In the series, C.K. plays Horace who runs a 100-year-old bar with his brother Pete (Steve Buscemi) following his father's death. During the episode, he also comes into contact with his Uncle Pete (Alan Alda) who works at the bar, his uncle's former girlfriend (Jessica Lange), his sister (Edie Falco) fighting him over ownership of the bar, his daughter (Aidy Bryant) who basically hates him, and a colorful cast of bar patrons.

The first episode appeared on his website last week without fanfare or any pre-promotion. The comedian says on a Q&A on his official site that it was a deliberate choice:

On Thursday, the comedian sent another email to provide more details about the series, which included news that the second episode will be available on Saturday.

Louis C.K. Plans to Release the Next Episode of Horace and Pete This Saturday, Drop the Price of Future Episodes

4 February 2016 2:55 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

With almost no warning, Louis C.K. released the first episode of Horace and Pete, a web series starring himself and Steve Buscemi, on his website last Saturday. In an email to subscribers Thursday, also posted to his website, C.K. went into more detail on the series, which, true to form, he is producing, directing, writing, distributing, and financing on his own. The next episode of Horace and Pete will drop this Saturday; unlike the first episode, which cost $5 to view, the second will be available for $2, and future episodes will be available for $3. We're no economists, but we think that means the second episode is less than half as good as the first, and two-thirds as good as the ones to come. As an explanation for the fee, C.K. pointed to the cost of production. Unlike a comedy special, Horace and Pete requires a full crew and has »

Louis C.K. explains 'Horace and Pete' secrecy, plus that $5/episode price

4 February 2016 2:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On Saturday morning, with absolutely no advance fanfare, or even explanation, Louis C.K. released Horace and Pete, a 67-minute filmed play with a cast that included himself, Steve Buscemi, Alan Alda, Edie Falco, and Jessica Lange. It was an achievement as impressive for the surprise of it, and the lack of detail, as for the quality of the performances by Alda and everyone else. C.K. didn't even offer a clue  about when, or if, there might be more installments. That changed today, when he sent out a message to fans on the LouisCK.net mailing list, which finally offered a bit of insight about the design behind the series and plans for its future. About the surprise release, for instance, he explained, "As a TV watcher I’m always delighted when I can see a thing without knowing anything about it because of the promotion. So making this show »

Read Louis Ck’s Explanation of ‘Horace and Pete’

4 February 2016 1:49 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In an email sent to subscribers of his website, comedian Louis Ck has offered an explanation to fans who purchased the first episode of his new series “Horace and Pete.” Unlike the comic’s FX series “Louie,” a dark comedy, “Horace and Pete” is more of a straight drama. The first episodes runs 67 minutes and was directed by C.K. In the show, he and Steve Buscemi play the owners of a 100-year-old Brooklyn dive bar. Among the co-stars that appear in the first episode are Alan Alda, Jessica Lange, Rebecca Hall, Nick Dipaolo, Kurt Metzger, Steven Wright, Edie Falco and Aidy. »

The Greatest Kidnapping Comedies of All-Time

4 February 2016 11:39 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When asked about their inclination for kidnapping comedies, Joel Coen recently told Variety, “I’m not sure why. They are all very different. We should probably give that a rest.” He and Ethan Coen are responsible for three of the finest kidnapping comedies ever made, and are perhaps adding a fourth to their résumé this weekend.

The addition of comedy into a crime story is hardly a new prospect, but the kidnapping comedy is a wonderfully specific little nook in this often darkly funny cinematic world. The Coens practically own this genre — if you can call it a genre –having covered and re-covered it in such uniquely different ways.

Their fourth kidnapping comedy (although I doubt they would refer to any of these films as such), Hail, Caesar!, follows a Hollywood studio fixer (Josh Brolin) whose work life begins to unravel after the kidnapping of one of his biggest stars, »

Joel And Ethan Coen Rubbish Reports Of The Big Lebowski Sequel

4 February 2016 9:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mixed reviews and a lacklustre box office wasn’t enough to quell the impact thst Joel and Ethan Coen’s The Big Lebowski had on popular culture, and since its humble debut in ’98, both the neo-noir and Jeff Bridges’ inimitable stoner The Dude have always remained a topic of conversation, even if those fleeting reports suggesting a sequel never made it part the starting line.

While promoting their upcoming period dramedy Hail, Caesar!, both Joel and Ethan Coen confirmed that the song very much remains the same regarding a potential follow-up to The Big Lebowski – a categorical no. That’s despite actress Tara Reid dropping hints to the contrary, though the Coen Brothers poured cold water over the resurgent rumors in an interview with Variety. “Tara Reid likes to announce that just like [George] Clooney likes to announce ‘Hail, Caesar!,” Joel Coen said. “In this case, I don’t think we’ll oblige. »

Willem Dafoe Becomes Marilyn Monroe in Snickers Super Bowl Commercial

3 February 2016 10:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Snickers' Super Bowl commercials have become a thing of legend. And the big game just wouldn't be the same without a new one. Today, we get our first look at the latest edition in this long-standing Ad campaign. And it doesn't disappoint. The TV spot features two very big, albeit very different Hollywood legends.

In the new Snickers spot simply called 'Marilyn', we see the iconic actress in her signature flying skirt pose, standing over a steam grate. She has become possessed by hunger. And this manifests itself in the form of Willem Dafoe. The much-too-serious actor in a dress locks eyes with his director, who assures the 'big star' that this scene is going to be amazing!

Willem Dafoe declares the shoot a disaster. But he's soon given a Snickers bar by one of the Pas. Before you know it, Marilyn Monroe is back to her normal self. Sitting in the background, »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

Louis C.K. Drama Horace And Pete Brings Together Steve Buscemi, Rebecca Hall And Jessica Lange

3 February 2016 6:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX president John Landgraf may have placed Louie on an unofficial hiatus last month, effectively pumping the breaks on Louis C.K.’s beloved series, but the actor-cum-comedian has now turned his attention to an all-new show called Horace and Pete.

Quietly launching via his official page, Louis C.K.’s black comedy centers around the titular Irish pub, where his character of Horace interacts with a variety of passers-by as they come and go. It’s a set-up that bears semblance to popular sitcom Cheers, allowing for a whole host of famous faces to pop in for a pint and a yarn. Of those who frequent the bar, C.K.’s Horace is joined by Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Rebecca Hall, Jessica Lange, Kurt Metzger and Steven Wright.

Weighing in at 67-minutes in length, to say that Horace and Pete launched to little fanfare would be the understatement of the year. »

Louie is currently in the middle of another extended hiatus, but Louis C.K. has apparently been busy working on another, top-secret series.

Louis C.K. Releases New Series On His Website For $5

1 February 2016 11:14 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Louis C.K. has released the first episode of a new web series, but he has not partnered with any distributor on it. Instead, the Louie star has made his new show, Horace and Pete, available on his website, where potential viewers can pay $5 to watch it.

Horace and Pete takes place in a 100-year-old bar, with C.K. and Steve Buscemi co-starring as its two owners. Throughout the show’s 67-minute pilot, C.K. and Buscemi interact with a number of recognizable figures from the Hollywood and comedy worlds, including Alan Alda, Aidy Bryant, Jessica Lange, and Steven Wright. With that level of talent on board, C.K. easily justifies the $5 price tag, which is less than the cost of a beer at one of his comedy shows.

The release of Horace and Pete came completely out of the blue, with no build-up, and as some reviewers have noted, that »

For fans of Louis C.K.'s "Louie," last month the prognosis was grim on the series which went on hiatus after its fifth season. "[Louis] hasn’t promised me further seasons. I have no commitment from him," FX president John Landgraf said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour last month (via ScreenCrush). "We still talk about making more seasons of 'Louie' with some regularity… We also had a conversation, maybe this is a show you’ll do periodically for the rest of your life.
