Lena Dunham, Glenn Close Honored at Variety’s Power of Women NY Lunch

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lena Dunham opened her speech at Variety’s Power of Women luncheon with a not-so-shocking declaration. “It will surprise nobody in this room that I identity as a feminist,” Dunham said. “In fact, if it does surprise you, I suggest you take a look around the room and make sure that you’re not lost. You know what this luncheon is, right? The Men’s Rights Association meeting is down the street at P.F. Chang’s and I hear they started already so get moving.”

The punchline got a big laugh, before Dunham launched into a passionate endorsement of Gems, a non-profit founded by activist Rachel Lloyd to help young women from low-income backgrounds who have been domestically sex trafficked and exploited. “When I was raped, I felt powerless,” said Dunham, describing her college campus experience. “I felt my value had been determined by someone else.

Whoopi Goldberg Reveals She Hasn't Worn a Bra in 40 Years: See Which Other Stars on The View Also Go Commando!

19 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's no secret that The View's hosts are known for their candid, forthright ways with infotainment. Luckily for us, the outspoken women certainly didn't hold back during their latest chat about bras. The daytime talk show roundtable was in consensus on this topic: Bras are an annoyance. And one of the hosts gave them up long ago. "I haven't worn a bra in 40 years," Whoopi Goldberg revealed. "I've always been uncomfortable in them. I could never find one that sat comfortably and it always killed me in the back. So I just stopped wearing them." But she's not the only one who feels this type away about the tricky undergarment. "I let it all hang out, yes »

22 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Olympia Le-Tan, you win the wedding gift game for, like, ever. The French handbag designer gifted Kim Kardashian with a chic book clutch (the style is pretty much her claim to fame) that features two very familiar figures. The front of the bag reads "Mr & Mrs West, A Love Story," and has an intricate, embroidered portrait of Kim and Kanye West from their May 2014 wedding. (We mean, does it get any cuter than that?) Mrs. West brought her custom clutch to Variety's 2015 Power of Women Luncheon in New York City, where she is one of five ladies set to be honored. (Kim covered the mag's annual Power of Women issue alongside actresses Lena Dunham, Glenn Close, Rachel Weisz and The View's Whoopi »

As a 7-year-old girl living in the New York City projects, Whoopi Goldberg loved to go ice skating in Central Park with her brother. “I always wanted to be in the Ice Capades,” says Goldberg, who hosts “The View” and runs her own production company. “I was a great skater. I was a speed skater.” But she never remembers seeing any black ice skaters on TV.

10 Sitcom Pilots Inspired by Real People: Which Will You Watch?

17 April 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week, in the wake of Eddie Huang's complaints that he felt ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" was distorting and softening his childhood experiences, this column examined how hard it is for any biographical or autobiographical sitcom to be true to the life of its source and still be a crowd-pleasing primetime network entertainment. You'd think, after decades of trying, TV writers and network programming executives would be aware of this.

Nonetheless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the networks have no fewer than ten such sitcom pilots in production, as the first episodes of potential 2015-16 primetime series. Some are based on the lives of already famous entertainers, some on the self-referential stand-up comedy routines of not-quite-famous comics, and some on memoirsts who've lived interesting lives.

Here's a rundown of these pilots, with a look at who these shows are about, who's starring in them, what the series might be like, »

News Nuggets: Will Corden, Cumming, Colbert or Parsons host the 2015 Tony Awards?

14 April 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Who will host this year's Tony Awards? The two most recent selections are probably not available with Hugh Jackman in an active film career and Neil Patrick Harris just weeks after hosting the Oscars. The three most logical choices have ties to Broadway as well as CBS: new late night host James Corden, Alan Cumming ("The Good Wife"), and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). The network might want extra promotion for their upcoming "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert. Other possibilities: Matthew Morrison, Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Whoopi Goldberg, or Rosie O'Donnell? Hollywood Reporter -Break- The Billboard Music Awards announce three more performers for this year's ceremony. Hozier, Sam Smith, and Nick Jonas will all take the stage for the May 17 event in Las Vegas. Others previously announced are Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa. Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen will host the show on ABC. TV by the Numbers 2015 Tony Awards predict. »

‘The View’s’ Whoopi Goldberg Warns Marco Rubio: Quit the Hillary Clinton Potshots (Video)

Whoopi Goldberg took Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio to task on Tuesday’s “The View.” The ABC talk show host responded to the Senator’s speech announcing his Gop presidential candidacy in which he alluded to the age and possibly antiquated experience of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who he believes will ultimately become his opponent for the nation’s highest office. “Quit the potshots, those will come later,” Whoopi said, adding, “If she can’t get up the stairs, then you can say something.” Also Read: Sen.

The 20 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival

9 April 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We're just a week away from the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, which opens on Wednesday April 15th and runs until the 26th. As ever, the lineup is skewed toward U.S. productions, though not exclusively so, ranging from higher-profile projects with starry casts and broad ensembles to smaller, more under the radar titles from first-time directors. While the festival overall can't claim equivalent prestige with the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. Tribeca is positioned between either, both in geographic and chronological senses, and has carved out a solid niche for itself as an independent-leaning festival with a laudable agenda to foster new talent in both feature and shorts filmmaking. And this year, in addition to attracting an eclectic top-shelf jury including Dylan McDermott, Cobie Smulders, Steve Buscemi, Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Steinem, Vanessa Williams, Sheila Nevins, Debi Mazar, Minnie Driver, Andre Holland, Hank Azaria, Mamie Gummer, Mark Boal, Burr Steers, David »

Stephen Amell talks Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

6 April 2015 11:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced last week by the actor himself that Stephen Amell will be playing fan-favourite Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. At the Vancouver Expo Q&A session over the weekend to promote Arrow, Amell was asked about the similarities between Casey Jones and the character he plays in the show.

“Obviously the similarities are right there on the surface, but if the audition process and the script is any indication [Casey Jones] is going to be fundamentally different [from The Arrow],” he said. “As a matter of fact, it’s almost like the character of Casey Jones in this iteration of Ninja Turtles is almost a little bit more like the Oliver Queen that people know from the older comic books.”

Arrow’s Stephen Amell cast as Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

1 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year’s Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles performed so well at the box office on its opening weekend, that Paramount announced its sequel before a director or cast had been set. It’s expected many of the cast will return, but now we have our first new addition.

Variety are reporting that Arrow star Stephen Amell has landed the role of Casey Jones, having beaten out several other actors who screen tested for the role with Megan Fox over the weekend. No word yet on who the other actors were. Amell himself seemingly also confirmed it via Twitter:
