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.

Ladies and gentleman: Pornstache has left the prison...at least for season three. Pablo Schreiber announced he will not appear in Orange Is the New Black, which is currently in production in New York, due to his series regular responsibilities on HBO's The Brink. "I'm not taking part in the third season," he told The New York Post. "I'm a member of a show called The Brink that's going to be on HBO. It's a half-hour comedy with Jack Black and Tim Robbins and me [as] the three leads. I'm really excited about it."

Pablo Schreiber, who plays the corrections officer known as Pornstache on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, will not be appearing in the series' third season.

Pablo Schreiber Leaving 'Orange'

Schreiber’s Pornstache has been the character fans of Orange Is the New Black have most loved to hate. Unfortunately for the fandom, Schreiber has been cast in a new HBO comedy titled The Brink as one of the leads alongside Jack Black and Tim Robbins and won’t have time for Orange.

“I’m not taking part in the third season. I’m a member of a show called The Brink that’s going to be on HBO,” Schreiber told the New York Post. “It’s a half-hour comedy with Jack Black and Tim Robbins and me [as] the three leads. I’m really excited about it.”

Pornstache will not return for season 3 of 'Orange Is the New Black'

24 July 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Orange Is the New Black returns, it will be missing a little facial hair.

Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mendez—a.k.a. Pornstache—told the New York Post that he will not appear in the show’s third season. It’s not a huge surprise, considering that the last time we saw his character—spoiler!—he was being carted away to prison. But then again, this entire show takes place inside a prison, so there’s that.

Life Of Crime Review

17 July 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jumping from average romcom to average romcom with all the enthusiasm of a bored teenager slogging through their homework, Jennifer Aniston just keeps on trucking. Romcoms are all well and good for some, but ever since Friends wrapped up at the turn of the millennium her’s has been a career in slow but steady decline. To that effect, Life of Crime is actually a pretty pleasant surprise, with Aniston swapping her usual Girl Next Door role for that of a beleaguered housewife taken hostage by a trio of barely competent crooks. That’s not to say the film’s any good, but I’d much rather watch Aniston try (and largely fail) to work outside her usual range than have to sit through Along Came Polly 2: Rodolfo’s Revenge. 

Life of Crime plays out like a sub-par companion piece to David O. Russell’s American Hustle - which »

Ten Conspiracy Thrillers with Cynical Resolutions

17 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though there are some spoilers sprinkled throughout this piece for some of the films, they are largely vague for readers who have not seen the films in question.

In his book Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America, journalist Rick Pearlstein posits that Nixon, one of history’s most reviled presidents, manipulated social trends, tense racial crises and even war to assume the office, and, perhaps inadvertently, created the way the Right and Left deal with each other in the present day. The scars of the seventies indeed still hang like a dark cloud over Washington, its internal systems ravaged by covert bugging operations and illegal payoffs. With Edward Snowden’s Nsa revelations and Wikileaks at the forefront today, America has once again regressed into paranoia, though nothing in contemporary cinema compares to the violent, bleak reactions filmmakers had to the Watergate scandal. The occasional modern conspiracy thriller, »

Jack Black talks 'Goosebumps' movie

17 July 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In the upcoming Goosebumps movie, comedian Jack Black stars as spooky storyteller R. L. Stine, whose ghoulish creatures—previously confined to his bestselling children’s books—are unexpectedly brought to life by a teen neighbor (Scandal first kid Dylan Minnette). With the help of Stine’s daughter, Hannah (Israeli actress Odeya Rush), a race ensues to capture the author’s manic monsters from wrecking havoc on their small town. It’s a comedy-fueled horror (due Aug. 7, 2015) that promises to channel Goosebumps’ kid-approved brand of scary while pleasing grownup loyalists of the 1990s franchise.

Kristen Wiig Will Go Full Nude in 'Welcome to Me'

16 July 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kristen Wiig is known more so for making people laugh than she is for getting naked on screen, but that's all about to change with Welcome to Me, a new dramedy that will see the comedic actress stripping down in front of audiences for the first time.

In the past few years, Kristen Wiig has been quickly transferring her talents into more dramatic roles, with lead parts in Friends with Kids, Girl Most Likely, Hateship Loveship and the upcoming The Skeleton Twins. But Welcome to Me might be her most challenging job yet.

In the movie, she plays Alice Klieg, who suffers from a borderline personality disorder. After winning the lottery, she quits taking her meds and decides to launch her own talk show. It was Eliot Laurence's screenplay that drew her in, and she knew that she had to jump in with both feet.

Dennis Lehane Gets The Drop on Us

8 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr explores the cinematic adaptations of Dennis Lehane’s work…

‘I have no desire to operate on my own children’

Dennis Lehane explains why he is against adapting his own books.

Best-selling author, Boston native and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has been accused of a few things in life. For instance there are people convinced this author of hard edged thrillers wrote Mystic Pizza. That late eighties, tissue thin chick flick which helped launch Julia Roberts onto the world stage before Gary Marshall, Richard Gere and a Lotus finished the job. Dennis Lehane wrote Mystic River by the way, just to avoid any confusion.

Then there’s the small issue of his fan mail. Not all of it you understand, just the celebrity stuff he continues to receive for writing The Departed. You see his only problem is William Monahan wrote the book, adapted it into a screenplay and received the Oscar. »

CIA Remorseful about Tupac

8 July 2014 2:13 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

The CIA marked its one-month Twitter anniversary today by answering the top five burning questions that have been lobbed its way since the government agency sent conspiracy theorists into a social-media frenzy.

First off, we'll predict that a lot of the thousands of questions that didn't make the top five involve subjects like JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Area 51, national security, 9-11, Benghazi, whySusan Sarandon and Tim Robbins really broke up, etc.

But what did make it through the surely strict screening procedure was a question about the fate of Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down on Sept. 13, 1996.

Or was he?
