Will Forte is joining the cast of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's comedy flick Keanu, THR reports. For the project — about two pals (Key and Peele) who pose as drug-dealers to re-steal a stolen cat — Forte is slotted to play a low-level pot dealer who's an acquaintance of Peele's character and obsessed with black culture. (In an ideal world this movie will have a crucial crossover moment with that Kevin Spacey cat movie, in which it turns out the cat Key and Peele have been looking for all along is none other than Catvin Spacey, aka Keanu. Pipe dream, but whatever. Forte and his marijuana will be crucial regardless.) The Last Man on Earth star joins Method Man and Gabrielle Union in supporting roles; they'll all reportedly begin shooting in New Orleans within the next couple months. Fun! »

All 13 episodes were provided for review purposes prior to broadcast.
NBC is either dumping Aquarius or taking an admirable risk with the period procedural, depending on how you look at it. Tonight, after its two-hour premiere, the network is opening up the floodgates, Netflix-style, by making all 13 episodes of the season available at once. The unusual strategy (the Peacock network’s first real flirtation with binge-viewing) is doubly strange because Aquarius is really not the kind of show you’d ever want to gobble down in one sitting. After consuming the entire season, it’s crystal clear that NBC has been promoting Aquarius all wrong – and that’s a real shame.
When it comes down to it, the series is no House of Cards – and just as importantly, star David Duchovny is no Kevin Spacey. Aquarius isn’t an event series but a resolutely sturdy cop procedural, one powered by »

John Turturro is such the ultimate Brooklynite that one sometimes forgets the 58-year-old has a lifetime of accumulated wisdom from globetrotting under his belt. Vulture met up with the veteran actor for a stroll along the beach to pick his brain on what he’s learned since his first of six trips to the Cannes Film Festival in 1991, when both Barton Fink and Jungle Fever debuted and Fink swept the top awards. Turturro was at Cannes this year as the comic relief for Nanni Moretti’s Mia Madre, playing the disastrously unprepared, big-name American actor shipped in to star in an Italian film about labor unions directed by a woman (Margherita Buy) whose mother (Giulia Lazzarini) is dying. It’s Turturro at his zaniest, spouting off dreams he’s had about Kevin Spacey trying to kill him, singing Italian songs about milk with his head out the window of a moving car, »

The first two episodes of “Marseille” will be directed by Florent-Emilio Siri, director of the Cesar-nominated theatrical hits “My Way” (Cloclo) and “L’Ennemi intime. ” Samuel Benchetrit (“J’ai toujours rêvé d’être »

'The Insider' movie: Al Pacino and Russell Crowe 'The Insider' movie: 1999 exposé of CBS news show barks, but doesn't bite Michael Mann's 1999 movie The Insider quote exchange: "It's old news. ... We'll be ok," says Don Hewitt (Philip Baker Hall), the creator of the CBS news show 60 Minutes. "These things have a half-life of 15 minutes." "No, that's fame," replies 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer). "Fame has a 15-minute half-life. Infamy lasts a little longer." The infamous "things" referred to by Hewitt and Wallace are the series of scandals that erupted in early 1996, when it was revealed that CBS had refused to air an interview with a tobacco company whistleblower because the network feared the (financial) consequences. What Freedom of the Press? Based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article about the events that led up to that embarrassing – and disturbing – incident, The Insider tells the story of scientist Jeffrey Wigand »

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.
The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.
Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

Beyond having an incredible singing voice of her own, Christina Aguilera became the queen of impersonating other people's singing voices, too, when she sat down for a game of Wheel of Musical Impressions with Jimmy Fallon back in February. The singer's Britney Spears impression blew everyone away, quickly becoming a viral hit. Earlier this week, Christina told Refinery29 about the impersonation, saying, "I was surprised when 'This Little Piggy' with Britney's voice came up on the wheel, but I thought it was all in good fun. Doing impressions can go either way, so the fact that everyone liked it and could laugh with us was great. I think Britney is great." Watch the singer's spot-on Britney moment again above, and then check out Christina's incredible Sex and the City impression plus Kevin Spacey's must-see impressions from the same Tonight Show game!

Pro tip: Don't bother asking Beau Willimon what he's planning for season four of Netflix's juggernaut drama House of Cards. "I'm not going to say anything, even about what we're exploring," Willimon tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We have a smart audience and they already have ideas about what might happen in season four." What Willimon is wiling to reflect upon is three seasons of exploring one of the darkest and most unpredictable marriages depicted on television — that between newly minted Potus Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his spouse, Claire (Robin Wright). "The shape that that marriage has taken, the
