The Actors Who Could Have Starred In Films, But Didn’t

26 July 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…

The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

Lethal Weapon 4's ridiculously fast turnaround time

22 July 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros greenlit Lethal Weapon 4 late in the day - giving director Richard Donner just over six months to make the movie...

The closing chapter of the Lethal Weapon movie saga was a film that, tonally, was a long way away from the movie that started the series.

In the original Lethal Weapon back in 1987, the character of Martin Riggs - as played by Mel Gibson - was on the verge of suicide, working uneasily alongside Danny Glover's Roger Murtaugh. By the end of Lethal Weapon 4, as the song Why Can't We Be Friends played out, it was all happy families. With babies. Riggs had a wife and child, any hints of suicide were long gone, and the film feels a lot more like a comedy than an action thriller.

But then Lethal Weapon 4 was a film with very different expectations on it. The original Lethal Weapon was a surprise hit. »

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Review

22 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided for review purposes.

For a platform offering instant pop culture gratification, it’s not surprising that Netflix’s original programming slate has leaned heavily on two things: name recognition and wish fulfillment. Breaking into a crowded market of prestige dramas and genre TV? Bring in Kevin Spacey and the Wachowskis. Courting comedy and comic book fans? Resurrect Arrested Development and Daredevil. Improbably combining the appeal of both is Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, an eight-episode miniseries that acts as the prequel to a little-seen 2001 comedy starring a collection of erstwhile unknowns. Wet Hot American Summer was ridiculous, unpredictable, and hilarious. The same can be said of both the new Netflix miniseries, and how it came to be.

A lot has changed in the worlds of comedy, movies, and TV during the 14 years since Wet Hot American Summer was released. An entire cast of SNL stars has sprouted, »

Ultimate Emmys heavyweight bout: Jon Hamm ('Mad Men') vs. everyone else

21 July 2015 4:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Following the announcement of the 2015 Emmy nominations, Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") skyrocketed to the top of our Best Drama Actor chart based on the predictions made by Gold Derby's Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users and All Users. As of this writing, he has overwhelming 2/7 combined odds to win his first -- yes, his very first -- Emmy Award on September 20. But are we overestimating Hamm's chances? After all, no "Mad Men" actor or actress has ever won an Emmy (see full list of losing bids below). Or perhaps we're simply underestimating the rest of this year's leading men, which include Kyle Chandler ("Bloodline"), Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom"), Bob Odenkirk ("Better Call Saul"), Liev Schreiber ("Ray Donovan") and Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards"). -Break- Join our feisty forums to discuss who will win this Emmy race If Hamm wins Emmy #1 for "Mad Men," that m »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Drama Series

21 July 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Mad Men" has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the TV Academy. Matthew Weiner's series won Best Drama at the Emmys for its first four seasons, among other numerous trophies. But its leading man has never won. Despite earning a nomination every year "Mad Men" has been eligible (plus guest star nods for "30 Rock" in three seasons and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" this year), Hamm has lost every single year (spurring him to create the "Losers' Party" with fellow snubee Amy Poehler). Will he join the ranks of the unjustly ignored like Jason Alexander and Steve Carell, or will the Academy finally reward him in his final year as Don Draper?  The answer will be "no" if Kevin Spacey has anything to say about it. Hot off his Golden Globes win and feeling rejuvenated after Bryan Cranston and Matthew McConaughey's exit from the category, the two-time Oscar winner »

12 Of The Most Iconic Movie Posters of All

17 July 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hundreds of movies are released every year, and for every movie that’s released, there’s a movie poster to go along with it.

While these movie posters typically do a great job of advertising the film for a few weeks prior to release, very few of them end up being remembered for more than a few seconds, let alone months or years.

But, there are some movie posters that stand the test of time, and over the years, have become iconic works of art in their own right. We’re talking about films like Jaws, Titanic, and the many others featured below which you can purchase at any time at great sites like fastprint.

#1 – Trainspotting

Trainspotting is a dark, twisted British movie released in 1996, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor.

It’s become one of the most iconic films of all time over the years, and »

'HoC's' Kelly Reacts To Emmy Nom

16 July 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Doug Stamper had a tough season of "House of Cards," but for the actor who plays him, Michael Kelly, it was a good one – one that on Thursday resulted in an Emmy nomination.

Michael joined his co-stars Kevin Spacey (President Frank Underwood) and Robin Wright (Claire Underwood) in the nominee field. The well-deserved honor came after his third season of playing Doug, as the President's fixer worked to overcome a traumatic brain injury, all the while scheming and plotting to get his place back alongside his commander in chief.

Emmy nominations 2015 - as it happened

16 July 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mad Men and Game of Thrones were the big nominees

British shows and actors did well with nods for Downton Abbey and DerekTransparent and Jeffrey Tambor were also recognised

3.47pm Et

We’re bowing out with a final piece that wraps up Hannah Ellis-Petersen’s piece about the UK success at the Emmy nominations, and Brian Moylan’s piece:

Once again, Downton Abbey received the most nominations of any British drama, continuing the series’ long-running awards success in the Us. The fourth series saw nominations for Jim Carter for best supporting actor and Joanne Froggatt for best supporting actress.

The ITV show, which has earned the most Emmy nominations of any non-us show in history, will again compete against glossy American dramas such as House of Cards, Game of Thrones and Mad Men for the accolade of outstanding drama series.

Emmy Nominations: Amy Schumer, Tatiana Maslany and More Celebrate on Twitter

16 July 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Are you one of the many who are excited that “Orphan Black’s” Tatiana Maslany was finally nominated for an Emmy? So is fellow nominee Amy Schumer.

When Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday, TV stars took to Twitter in force to celebrate, thanking fans and even breaking out the champagne (which is acceptable, given the Emmys’ later announcement time this year).

Schumer congratulated fan favorite Maslany for finally nabbing a nom, showing excitement for the fact that she was “#notsnubbed.”

@amyschumer You!!! You Congratulations! I'm So Happy For You!! You're my favourite one :) #veryfuckable

Tatiana Maslany (@tatianamaslany) July 16, 2015

Schumer also took a second to celebrate her nominations for “Inside Amy Schumer,” including lead actress in a comedy and best variety sketch series. Pizza and beer were involved.

We are all ecstatic about the #EmmyNoms for #InsideAmy I am celebrating! #giammati #12angrymen #directing #writing pic.twitter.com/SRZf5KC »

2015 Emmys Nominations: You take the good, you take the bad

16 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In this new Golden Age of TV, where great shows are available in abundance, only no one has time to watch them all — least of all the people who actually work in television, and thus vote for the Emmys — the only way to look at each year's Emmy nominations is to treat them like the theme song from "The Facts of Life." You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both, and there you have this year's Emmy nominees list. So there were pleasant surprises, like Tatiana Maslany finally getting into the lead drama actress field, and "Parks and Recreation" making its way back into the comedy series category for its triumphant final season after only being nominated there once before. But there was also the usual rubber stamping of past nominees(*), like "Downton Abbey," "Homeland" and "House of Cards" taking up three of the seven drama »
