Trailer Watch: 'Doll & Em' Launch an Off-Broadway Play About Their Friendship in Season 2

17 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When we saw them in the first season of "Doll & Em," the fictional versions of actress Emily Mortimer and her less successful Bff Dolly Wells were on the outs after Doll's short tenure as Em's personal assistant turned into an "All About Eve" situation.  The show's sophomore season finds the two on more equal footing, with the lifelong pals in NYC attempting to launch an off-Broadway play about themselves. Olivia Wilde and Evan Rachel Wood guest star as themselves, angling to play Doll and Em, while bold-namers Ewan McGregor and Harvey Weinstein also appear in the trailer. But the heart of the show is an exploration of how their professional partnership impacts their grown-up friendship, which becomes more and more complicated with success. "Doll & Em" Season 2 premieres Sunday, September 13 at 10:30pm on HBO.

Raising Caine on TCM: From Smooth Gay Villain to Tough Guy in 'Best British Film Ever'

5 August 2015 11:27 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Michael Caine young. Michael Caine movies: From Irwin Allen bombs to Woody Allen classic It's hard to believe that Michael Caine has been around making movies for nearly six decades. No wonder he's had time to appear – in roles big and small and tiny – in more than 120 films, ranging from unwatchable stuff like the Sylvester Stallone soccer flick Victory and Michael Ritchie's adventure flick The Island to Brian G. Hutton's X, Y and Zee, Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Sleuth (a duel of wits and acting styles with Laurence Olivier), and Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men. (See TCM's Michael Caine movie schedule further below.) Throughout his long, long career, Caine has played heroes and villains and everything in between. Sometimes, in his worst vehicles, he has floundered along with everybody else. At other times, he was the best element in otherwise disappointing fare, e.g., Philip Kaufman's Quills. »

Sony Pictures Classics Adds Don Cheadle's 'Miles Ahead' to Its 2016 Slate

5 August 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Sony Pictures Classics stepped up to acquire as many available territories as possible--a priority for seller UTA--including North America for Don Cheadle’s directorial debut "Miles Ahead." The biopic will world premiere on closing night of the upcoming Nyff (September 25 – October 11). Cheadle stars as legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, during his crazy Manhattan days in the late-70s, opposite Emayatzy Corinealdi as his great love Frances Taylor and Ewan McGregor as Dave Brill, a Rolling Stone reporter who cons his way into Miles’ apartment.  Spc co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard have such a healthy awards slate for 2015 that they will not add this one to their awards docket, preferring to wait until 2016, when one-time Best Actor nominee Cheadle ("Hotel Rwanda") could be a strong acting contender. On the foreign side, always a strong suit for Spc, are Cannes award-winner "Son of Saul," the official Oscar submission from »

Never mind Belle and the Beast, we're ready for "Beauty and the Beast" to show the magical bromance of Gaston and Lefou!

Josh Gad plays Lefou, opposite Luke Evans as the cocky Gaston. Luke's Gaston may not find love with Emma's Belle, but it sounds like the actors are leaving with a strong bond. Check out this photo from Josh, which was also shared with a note from Luke:
