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

3 hours ago | 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.

Schreiber told the Post: “I’m not taking part in the third season. I’m a member of a show called The Brink »

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

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.

IFC has ordered a follow-up to “The Spoils of Babylon,” its bizarre, star-studded and bizarrely star-studded parody miniseries.
