Bill Hader hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this week-talk about it here!

11 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Tonight's episode of SNL will have everything. Okay, maybe not. But after a shaky start, a visit from a beloved former cast member might be just what season 40 needs to get back on track. And Bill Hader isn't just one of the show's best-known recent alumni—he's among the most skillful, versatile players in SNL history. Some would even call him the show's best cast member ever; no less an authority than Bill Murray is one of those people. Hader's a precise impressionist, a chameleonic and engagingly weird performer, and, when the occasion calls for it, a perfectly dignified straight man. »

From Under the Radar to Potential Oscar Contention

7 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The conversation surrounding potential supporting actress nominees includes some names familiar to the Oscar race, such as Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), and some that could be nominated for the first time, such as Emma Stone (Birdman). The list of potential contenders also includes Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Rene Russo (Nightcrawler), two ladies that have flown under the radar since the 90s but could mark their return with first-time Oscar nominations.

Arquette’s role as the mother in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, a film that chronicles 12 years in a young boy’s (played by Ellar Coltrane) life as he grows up in a divorced household, has been generating Oscar buzz since the film premiered at Sundance. Arquette was involved in a few projects during those 12 years of filming, which was possible due to the sporadic nature of shooting, only three to four days a year. »

Roger & Me (Blu-ray)

7 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Roger & Me

Directed by: Roger Moore

Running Time: 1 hr 31 mins

Rating: R

Due Out: October 7, 2014

Who’S It For? Well, let me tell you a story. I was home sick in middle school. My dad recorded some movies after a free HBO weekend. “Roger & Me” was rated R, and I thought I was about to get away with something. I was wrong. What I’m saying is, it’s not for middle schoolers. It’s for everyone who has ever considered liking documentary films. It’s that simple.

This is the chance to see Moore before he became the Moore you have a definitive love Or hate relationship with.

Before we get to the film, if you subscribe to Moore’s e-newsletter, this is old hate, if not, here’s a message from Michael Moore about his film.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, is a big day for me. Warner Bros. is releasing to you, »

With Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks are teaming up again for an untitled spy thriller based on the true story of attorney James Donovan, who was tasked by the CIA with negotiating with the Russian government for the release of a captured U-2 pilot during the height of the Cold War.

Joining Hanks in the supporting cast are Alan Alda (who will forever be known for his fantastic turn in M*A*S*H), Mark Rylance (The Other Boleyn Girl), and Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone).

Oscar Bait: Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' spy thriller begins production

6 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why don't we talk about Steven Spielberg's "Munich" more? Flipping his sentimentalist reputation the bird, the docudramatized look inside Mossad's covert retaliation against the Palestine Liberation Organization is unmercifully tense and morally complicated to the point of inducing anxiety attacks. "Munich" is weaponized blockbuster filmmaking — and it sounds like Spielberg's antsy to return to the style. Perhaps praise for the 2006 Best Picture-nominee will resurface next October, when Spielberg adds another notch to his thriller belt with a Cold War drama starring "Catch Me If You Can" star Tom Hanks. Dreamworks and Walt Disney Pictures announced today that principal photography has begun on the currently untitled film, which costars Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda. Shooting around New York and Berlin, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney thrust into Cold War chaos when the CIA recruits him for a "near-impossible mission to negotiate the »

Filming Begins on Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that principal photography has commenced on Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks.  As we previously reported, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  The film will also star Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda, and will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.  Following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, this will mark Spielberg's fourth film collaboration with Hanks, and hopefully it will be a fruitful one, especially since they're working from a script by the Coen Brothers.  Hanks and Spielberg's most recent collaboration was as executive producers on HBO's miniseries The Pacific.

Huston to Follow Heston as Ben-Hur Casting Announced

17 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Corliss writes in his obituary: “He could play anyone, but not just one: not ‘just’ Robin Williams. All those voices in the head of this comic Hamlet must have told him it was time to be quiet. The rest is silence.” Dick Cavett: “Robin and I agreed once that it’s galling to hear — when you’re ‘in it’ — the question: ‘What have you got to be depressed about?’ The great British actor and comedian, Stephen Fry, a fellow sufferer, replies ‘And what have you got to have asthma about? »

'The Knick's John Thackery and other TV surgeons, ranked

8 August 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Television is full of surgeons, some good and some, well—let’s just say you wouldn’t want them to operate on you or anyone you know.

When Cinemax’s The Knick, a show about the early days of surgery, premieres Friday, viewers will meet yet another TV surgeon: Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen), a gruff doctor who’s often up to his elbows in blood. Because The Knick is set in the early 20th century, Thackery is lacking many of the luxuries today’s medical professionals have. But he still proves more trustworthy than, for example, Grey’s Anatomy’s Leah Murphy. »
