Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin, and Chris Pine have all played Jack Ryan in one incarnation or another and “The Office” alum John Krasinski wants to add his name to the list of actors who’ve donned the iconic moniker. Amazon, along with TV mastermind Carlton Cuse, are teaming up for their new series about the CIA analyst. “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” a title that’s sure to undergo tweaks, is setting up for a series run with Krasinski in the lead position.

Four of the five top-grossing independent films in the Us this year have starred and centred on women.
Both Hollywood and the independent film world are missing a financial trick by failing to engage with female audiences, top sales agents, financiers and producers warned at a panel on the economic impact of the gender gap in the film business at the Zurich Summit on Saturday.
“There’s a lot of money left on the table when you’re leaving out certain audiences,” commented agent Laura Lewis of Creative Artists Agency.
“People like to see themselves on screen. We find territory by territory that a lot of home-spun product is eclipsing Hollywood fare. Women want to see themselves on screen but have a hard time finding that which is one »
Today, “American Idol” has sung its last tune and Seacrest is a global phenomenon. But in 2016, would he have even gotten his shot at fame?
In the highly competitive era of peak TV, the Big Four are taking fewer risks on unknown talent when it comes to unscripted programming, placing all their bets on A-listers.
The reality show lineup of the 2016-17 season is a who’s-who of superstars. Arnold Schwarzenegger is taking over you-know-who’s seat on “The New Celebrity Apprentice”; Alec Baldwin is hosting “Match Game”; Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are spinning around in “The Voice’s” red chairs; Michael Strahan is hosting “$100,000 Pyramid”; Simon Cowell returned to the States with “America’s Got Talent”; and Steve Harvey is the face of three series with two more on the way.

Hey now, and hallelujah: After a few years stuck in streaming purgatory, all 89 episodes of The Larry Sanders Show are now available on HBO Go/HBO Now, as of this Friday. It’s a fitting home, too, since the original run of Sanders aired on HBO from 1992 to 1998 — and changed television as we know it.
If you’re not familiar, Larry Sanders stars Garry Shandling as the chronically insecure host of a struggling late-night talk show. Rip Torn co-stars as his no-bs producer Artie, along with Jeffrey Tambor as Larry’s self-loathing sidekick Hank Kingsley. Looking back now, Sanders was revolutionary, »
Could Jimmy Fallon handle hosting a second talk show? Well, he's certainly going to give it a shot! On Wednesday's episode of The Tonight Show, the late-night host welcomed Kelly Ripa as his guest - and used the opportunity to audition for the role of Ripa's new Live co-host. "I'm not doing anything in the mornings!" Fallon said coyly while the audience cheered. "And we have a little chemistry!""We do have a chemistry," acknowledged Ripa. Fallon then suggested Ripa give him a shot to prove himself as a co-host - while simultaneously playing one of his favorite Tonight Show games, »

One of the films we've been hearing positive word of mouth out of the glut of Tiff is Eleanor Coppola's Paris Can Wait. Eleanor famously documented her husband Francis Ford Coppola's literal hell shooting Apocalypse Now with Hearts of Darkness, and followed with more behind the scenes documentaries after. Paris is her first narrative film and Sony Pictures Classics just picked it up for distribution. At 80 years old, this first feature from the director will be something to celebrate!
If not Tiff Oscar bait, the film sounds like a lighthearted, mouth watering trip across France: Diane Lane stars as a dispassionately married woman who takes a French road trip with a business associate of her husband to reinvigorate her life. Alec Baldwin and Arnaud Viard are her costars, but we hear the cuisine brings the real romance. Food porn and Diane Lane in Europe sounds like exactly the »

Her film stars Diane Lane, Arnaud Viard and Alec Baldwin. Lane plays an American woman in a tired marriage who finds herself on an unforeseen road trip from Cannes to Paris with a dashing Frenchman. A seven-hour drive unexpectedly takes two days with… »
With her last feature directorial credit being contributions to 1991’s Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, Eleanor Coppola is perhaps better known as Francis Ford Coppola’s wife than a filmmaker. Yet, she triumphantly returns this year with one of the sexiest and most joyful road movies in some time with Paris Can Wait.
This spiked bonbon of a movie has Diane Lane playing Anne, a woman that is slowly starting to get frustrated with the constant traveling of her Hollywood producer husband (Alec Baldwin). She is left alone once again during the Cannes Film Festival and needs to get to Paris by nighttime. Life at home for Anne is boring and routine, with her daughter leaving to pursue her studies abroad and her husband needing to fly to Egypt to deal with a problematic high-budget production. Anne might be hitting her mid-fifties, but there’s still an independent, »

Acclaimed for her work in the documentary format (Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse), Coppola is now making waves with her new film, starring Diane Lane, Alec Baldwin and Arnaud Viard. Paris Can Wait centers on a woman… »
If there’s one thing Unshaven Comics has been celebrated for by our peers, our fans, and our nemeses alike, it’s our ABC mentality. “Always. Be. Closing.” Alec Baldwin barked at us through gritted teeth. And boy howdy did that lesson stick. Since our second-ever convention appearance, my cohorts and I have adopted the mentality that while we love what we do, that we can’t do it unless our convention appearances end lucratively. Hence, we operate adhering to the science of the sale.
In less poetic terms, that means that every possible decision / choice we’ve made — from the products offered, to the pitch, the bundles we offer, straight through to the question we ask to close business — has been scrutinized to the Nth degree. It’s been a while since I’ve unpacked these bags for you, my adoring fans, so let’s dump all the dirty laundry on the floor, »

After a brief hiccup, all is right once again and it's time to light the fuse. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Tom Cruise has officially closed his deal with Paramount Pictures to return as action spy extraordinaire Ethan Hunt in the highly anticipated sixth installment in his blockbuster Mission: Impossible franchise.

Mr Robot season 2 has become increasingly inscrutable and disorienting, existing almost exclusively in subtext...
This review contains spoilers.
2.11 Python Pt. 1
Python Pt. 1, the first part of Mr Robot season 2’s finale, is baffling. Absolutely baffling. Elliot hacks himself into a lucid dream so he (and we) can follow Mr Robot around to suss out his shadowy plans. It involves decrypting a highly complicated code in a North Carolina BBQ joint menu then heading to a cab to rendezvous with Tyrell Wellick. Yes, he’s alive. We think?
It also involves Angela being taken by her kidnappers to a suburban home where a young girl asks her questions like “Have you ever cried during sex” in a room that contains nothing but an aquarium and an ancient computer.
But among all of those truly reality-bending, mind-fucking moments there is the surprisingly affecting story about a young FBI agent and her digital household helper. »

Newborn Leonardo Ángel Charles Baldwin is already a hit with the siblings! Hilaria Baldwin and Alec Baldwin welcomed their newborn son earlier this week and it looks like Carmen Baldwin and Rafael Baldwin are already acclimating to having another sibling. Hilaria shared an adorable video of Carmen holding her little brother, and in it she sings "Twinkle Twinkle" to the angelic baby boy. Unfortunately Rafael a.k.a. Rafa can't be seen because he was too busy "poking the baby's eyes," but Hilaria assured fans her son met his brother. "Leo's siblings came to meet him today. Rafa is learning to be gentle so I couldn't get a good shot of them together...he was fascinated with poking »
Not many people write, direct and produce their first narrative feature at age 80, but Eleanor Coppola isn’t your typical filmmaker. Best known for chronicling husband Francis Ford Coppola’s troubled production of “Apocalypse Now” in the 1991 doc “Hearts of Darkness,” she talks to Variety about her new autobiographical road movie “Paris Can Wait” and her own remarkable journey.
[Laughs] Well, by nature I’m a documentarian, a consummate observer, looking for nuggets of interesting experiences to photograph. That’s what I’ve done in seven behind-the-scenes [docs] for Francis and my children. But I had this funny experience and told a friend, “That’d be a movie I’d want to see.” I never thought of writing an original script, but I’d published a book [the 2008 memoir “Notes On a Life”] so I decided, why not give it a try? »

Alec Baldwin is suing a Manhattan-based art dealer claiming that she sold him a counterfeit version of a painting. Papers filed by Baldwin on Monday allege that Mary Boone sold him a $190,000 replica of Ross Bleckner’s “Sea and Mirror” in 2010, the Page Six reports. Court documents further claim that Boone assured Baldwin she […] »
