New this year to the EWwys, EW.com’s annual reader-voted awards for the Emmy-snubbed, are guest actor and guest actress categories. We’ve already posted audio of Elizabeth Banks phoning EW Radio to accept Best Guest Actress in a Comedy for her return to Modern Family (hear it here), but the other winners—The Good Wife’s Carrie Preston, Orange is the New Black’s Pablo Schreiber, and Game of ThronesPedro Pascal—were equally as entertaining when they dialed.

The closest race in the 2014 EWwys was Best Guest Actress in a Drama: Preston topped Lisa Kudrow (Scandal) by just 37 votes. »

As you'd expect for Toronto, the world premieres feature some big names including Josh Hutcherson and Benicio Del Toro in "Escobar: Paradise Lost," Jean Dujardin in "The Connection (La French)," Dustin Hoffman in "Boychoir, »

Summer Movies Flashback 1999: 'South Park' surprise and scathing 'Star Wars' reactions

7 August 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our continuing look back at some of the biggest summers we've lived through takes us back 15 years to one of the best recent movie seasons overall. In honor of the 2014 summer movie season, Team HitFix will be delivering a mini-series of articles flashing back to key summers from years past. There will be one each month, diving into the marquee events of the era, their impact on the writer and their implications on today's multiplex culture. We continue today with a look back at the summer of 1999. It was the summer I became Moriarty. To be fair, I had been contributing to Ain't It Cool for a little while already by that point, and I had been slowly but surely embracing the potential of the website and the audience that I was reaching. I had already taken a few trips to Austin, including a memorable stay at the third Quentin Tarantino Film Festival, »

New Cast Members Join Jack Black & Tim Robbins In ‘The Brink’

6 August 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO have got a new comedy show in the works and it has just added a few more cast members to the mix; Jaimie Alexander and Bernard White will join Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the shows’ main roles. The Brink, a half-hour comedy series tipped to be released by the end of the year, will be a humorous slant on the scramble to prevent geopolitical crisis as World War III looms ever closer.

Doesn’t sound that funny to us either but there’s several reasons we’re remaining optimistic. Firstly, the script is being written by seasoned writer/producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim, the former with credits including Ally McBeal and Weeds. Secondly, on board directing is Jay Roach who makes his first foray into directing a TV series after movies such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Meet The Parents and The Campaign. »

Something I didn’t realise was happening is that Netflix UK and Ireland actually has a blog and what they have been doing  on the rare update is providing information on which ISP’s are actually providing the fastest service. For the last couple of months the top two have always been Virgin and BT with BT coming out on top. Surprisingly though this month it’s switched around and Virgin is on top, considering the negative feedback I always hear about them this is very interesting.

If you google ‘Netflix News’ then you can usually find this blog and check the updates because otherwise it’s not the easiest thing to find via the site. It’s not only a good way of checking that you will get a reliable service if you are just starting out but a good way of seeing whether or not it is worth »

Blair Brown Follows Fringe With Orange Is The New Black

29 July 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jenji Kohan’s television adaptation of Piper Kerman’s memoir ‘Orange Is The New Black: My Year In A Women’s Prison’ is something of a phenomenon – and with good reason. Packed with great writing, fearless performances and brilliant direction, the Netflix Original Series burst onto the streaming channel with 13 episodes on July 11 2013, and became an instant hit. A second season of 13 episodes arrived on June 6 2014 and was similarly well-received – bolstered by the announcement of no fewer than 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations. Season 3 of Orange Is The New Black has been commissioned, and Fringe fan favourite Blair Brown will join the cast.

The details of Brown’s character are not yet known, but the intimidating abilities of both the actress, and the show’s writers, make for an exciting combination. Throughout her career, Brown has accumulated many high profile awards nominations of her own in both film and television, »

Orange Is the New Black loses Pornstache, gains Fringe alum

29 July 2014 1:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some new casting news has come in for the hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, which recently launched its second season and garnered quite a few Emmy nominations.

According to The Wrap, Pablo Schreiber, who plays George Mendez, a.k.a. “Pornstache,” won’t be back for season three, due to his new role in the HBO comedy series The Brink, which stars Jack Black and Tim Robbins.

In addition to Schreiber’s exit, we also have word that Fringe alum Blair Brown has joined the show, in an unspecified role. Her role as Nina Sharp on Fringe‘s five seasons makes me think she’d be able to give Orange Is the New Black‘s Red (Kate Mulgrew) a run for her money, but I guess we’ll just have to sit back and wait for official confirmation before knowing for sure.
