In this week's installment of 10 Stories You Might Have Missed: Anthony and Joe Russo give an update on "Captain America 3." This includes shooting start, more on Bucky, hints at Hawkeye and more. But we really doubt "Captain America: CapWolf" is the name. Also: "American Horror Story: Freak Show" gets a poster, Jodie Foster rumored for "Hannibal," David Lynch almost directed a Kanye West music video, Aphex Twin sets listening parties, "Longmire" seeks a new home, Ridley Scott defends "Exodus" casting, Netflix's "Marco Polo" sets a start date and Martin Scorsese is apparently directing a movie on The Ramones. What was on your dashboard this week? »

This week Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster at an Emmys after-party, and Tweeted an image that ignited enthusiastic fan speculation that Fuller was courting her to direct some episodes of his hit series.
Foster has taken on less acting roles over the last few years, and has instead turned her attention toward directing. She’s directed films like The Beaver and Home for the Holidays, and recently helmed a few episodes of popular Netflix shows House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. The role of Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs is perhaps her most iconic, and fans would love to see her involved in the newest iteration of the series.
According to Fuller, however, it’s not in the cards. Not only does Foster have a full slate of upcoming projects (including the film Money Monster »

At a recent Emmys party, Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster. The result was the enthusiastic Twitter pic you see below. This encounter - a mix of two people hailing from two separate Hannibal screen adaptations - spurred rumors that Fuller was courting Foster for a directing gig on the upcoming third season of Hannibal.
I spoke to Fuller this afternoon and he provided some clarification and sobering truth.

Break out some fava beans and a nice Chianti! Jodie Foster just might end up coming to NBC's Hannibal to direct, if executive producer Bryan Fuller gets his way. At last night's HBO Emmy party, I just so happened to overhear the genius showrunner ask the original Hannibal movie star if she would be willing to come and direct the series during its third season, which is set to begin production next week. Jodie was noncommittal, but said she'd think it over, so...Fingers crossed, Fannibals! We'll probably never see Clarice Starling (Foster's big-screen role) on the NBC TV show, but having her behind the camera would be sort of epic in its own right, right? Fuller also tweeted a »

Well, don't these two look great all glammed up?! Jodie Foster and new wife Alexandra Hedison attended the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards together on Monday held at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. The good-looking couple happily posed for pics as they sat side-by-side in the audience, coordinating their ensembles in similar all-black ball gowns. Foster, 51, stunned in a strapless Max Mara number and accessorized with a stunning Neil Lane diamond necklace, while her ladylove rocked a monochromatic dress which featured a criss-cross neckline. The Oscar-winning actress was nominated for Outstanding Directing for her Comedy Series for her »
Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.
The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.
As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).
The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

Wedded bliss! Just a few months after secretly tying the knot, Jodie Foster and her new wife Alexandra Hedison hit an Emmys afterparty on Monday, Aug. 25, as a married couple.

Both women looked beautiful in complementary black gowns for the star-studded soirée.

America’s version of the TV BAFTA’s, The Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night. The cream of the televisual crop were out in force to celebrate the occasion. Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.
Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock. See below for the winners list in full and we’ve also put in the moving tribute from Billy Crystal for his friend, »

Billy Crystals moving tribute to Robin Williams at the EmmysEmmy Awards: full list of winners
A Quick Summary: Breaking Bad won just about everything and everyone cheered. So did Modern Family and everyone grumbled. British people won a whole bunch of awards too for Sherlock and stuff. Barely any of them showed up to get their trophies. Maybe theyre mad that we call it soccer? I dont know. Seth Meyers kinda sucked, Sofia Vergara was turned into a prop, everyone is white and male, and nothing every changes and the Emmys is awful. In other news, the Oscars is only six months away.
Thanks for joining us and goodnight!
Alright everyone, thats it for the Emmys. Enjoy your local news and lets get together next year »

Never again, TV Academy. Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated. Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
While news of of a Quentin Tarantino film going into development is always met with a level of excitement, fans of the filmmaker have gone on a bit of a rollercoaster with his newest project. Titled The Hateful Eight, Tarantino initially scrapped the film following the leak of his script to the public, before staging a live-reading of the script for charity. This was followed by the announcement that Tarantino was back in production on the feature. Now a new piece of news has emerged, as Collider reports that Tarantino is in talks with actress Jennifer Lawrence to take on a role in the film.
Lawrence herself has seen her star rise in recent years, garnering acclaim for her role in 2010′s Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone before going on to the role of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise and Mystique in the X-Men franchise, as well as »
