Reviews: Elisabeth Moss Bows on Broadway in 'Heidi Chronicles'

20 March 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Wendy Wasserstein's seminal, eras-spanning play returns to Broadway and now stars "Mad Men"'s Elisabeth Moss — who has lately been steadily proving herself as a serious screen actress — as "the smarty-pants art history major who rides the social roller coaster from the mid-’60s through the late 1980s," per Deadline in a strong review that touts this version of the Tony-winning 1988 production. Wasserstein's feminist play—buoyantly humorous while asking serious existential questions—scooped up the Pulitzer Prize in 1989 and has since boasted the likes of Joan Allen, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Christine Lahti and Mary McDonnell. The New York Times adores this revamp's "softly radiant" Elisabeth Moss, who carries the role as well as the best of them: "Ms. Moss, a superb actor who possesses an unusual ability to project innocence and smarts at the same time, inherits a role played by many since Joan Allen originated it when the play had. »

13 March 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

A Good Marriage is an independent film based on the Stephen King story by the same name in Full Dark No Stars. A solid script and decent acting by the supporting cast does the story justice.

As the docs tried to plow through as many cases as they could before Nicole’s surgery, their growing closeness fascinated their colleagues almost as much as Amelia’s lectures on the daring procedure that she believed/hoped would eradicate Herman’s tumor.

Rutina Wesley To Meet The Red Dragon In ‘Hannibal’

24 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

She’s best known for playing the headstrong Tara in True Blood, but for her next role Rutina Wesley encounters a human monster in the third season of Hannibal. Wesley plays Reba McClane, infamous to readers of the Thomas Harris source novels as the woman who got close to Francis Dolarhyde.

Unbeknownst to her, he is the Tooth Fairy, the serial killer at the heart of first Lecter bestseller Red Dragon – however her blindness makes her literally unseeing as to his true nature. Richard Armitage has been cast as Dolarhyde. The characters were portrayed by Emily Watson and Ralph Fiennes in the 2002 movie adaptation and by Joan Allen and Tom Noonan in Michael Mann’s 1986 version Manhunter.

Wesley and Armitage join new cast member Joe Anderson, who replaces Michael Pitt as Mason Verger. It looks like showrunner Bryan Fuller is really starting to blend the worlds of the series and the books, »
