Volcano is Fearless Finney Showcase: L.A. Screening with Bisset in Attendance

5 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Under the Volcano' screening: John Huston's 'quality' comeback starring daring Albert Finney As part of its John Huston film series, the UCLA Film & Television Archive will be presenting the 1984 drama Under the Volcano, starring Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, and Anthony Andrews, on July 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Billy Wilder Theater in the Los Angeles suburb of Westwood. Jacqueline Bisset is expected to be in attendance. Huston was 77, and suffering from emphysema for several years, when he returned to Mexico – the setting of both The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Night of the Iguana – to direct 28-year-old newcomer Guy Gallo's adaptation of English poet and novelist Malcolm Lowry's 1947 semi-autobiographical novel Under the Volcano, which until then had reportedly defied the screenwriting abilities of numerous professionals. Appropriately set on the Day of the Dead – 1938 – in the fictitious Mexican town of Quauhnahuac (the fact that it sounds like Cuernavaca is no coincidence »

Melissa McCarthy Fans Mourn Loss of Her Sean Spicer Impersonation After He Resigns as Press Secretary

10 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Both Sean Spicer and Melissa McCarthy said goodbye to big jobs on Friday.

The White House press secretary announced that he would be resigning from his post, and McCarthy fans were quick to point out that Saturday Night Live would no longer be needing the 46-year-old actress' hilarious impersonation of "Spicey."

"Congratulations to Sean Spicer and condolences to Melissa McCarthy," one Twitter user wrote.

So Long, Spicey! Revisit Melissa McCarthy's Best Sean Spicer SNL Moments as the Press Secretary Resigns

11 hours ago | | See recent news »

Spicey’s gum-swallowing and name-takin’ days are officially over.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned from the Trump administration on Friday over disapproval of the new pick for communications director, according to The New York Times.

The move comes after six months of headline-making behavior from Spicer – which inspired one of this year’s most memorable and hilarious comedic impressions.

Actress Melissa McCarthy debuted her take on Spicer in February on Saturday Night Live, and has since earned an Emmy-nomination for refusing to “dial it back” (as requested by the subject).

Twitter Reacts to O.J. Simpson Parole Verdict: ‘The Juice Is Loose’

20 July 2017 2:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Twitter partied like it was 1995 on Thursday.

O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing for a 2007 armed robbery captured the nation’s — and social media’s — attention on Thursday. The Nevada Parole Board granted Simpson parole, and the former football star could walk free as early at Oct. 1. Twitter reacted to the news throughout the televised hearing and especially after the verdict was announced.

Ava DuVernay tweeted a gif of a baffled man as soon as the Nevada board granted Simpson with the parole.

Ava DuVernay (@ava) July 20, 2017

Many referenced the famous murder trial of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, in which Simpson was acquitted to much controversy.

“Oj Simpson has been granted parole. He can now go back to searching for the real killers of his ex-wife.”

Every day society doesn't give Oj parole is one more day we keep him from finding the real killer#OJSimpsonParole

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Hails A New Era For Hulu

19 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Margaret Atwood wrote “The Handmaid’s Tale” as a bleak novel of a world gone wrong back in 1985, she probably never could have anticipated the chord it would strike with an audience three decades later. But Hulu, which picked up Bruce Miller’s adaptation of the tale, immediately saw the “grounded, world-building” story as one that would be relevant for the television landscape — and its own original programming slate — for years to come. The Academy validated Hulu’s belief by crowning the series with 13 Emmy nods.

“We anticipated this, not the Emmy nominations, but the type of show that ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ would be for Hulu a year ago,” says Craig Erwich, head of content at Hulu. “It’s an incredible book that lends itself to a television series [with] the villains, the heroes and this incredible world.”

“Handmaid’s Tale” is not the streaming service’s first foray into high-concept scripted series: Last year saw J.J. Abrams »

Alec Baldwin to star in NBC’s A Few Good Men Live

18 July 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor Alec Baldwin has been cast in NBC’s live production of A Few Good Men.

Baldwin is set to take on role of Col. Nathan Jessep, the part made famous by Jack Nicholson in the 1992 adaptation of Aaron Sorkin’s play.

The live production will also be executive produced by Baldwin, along with Sorkin, Craig Zadan, and Neil Meron.

Alec Baldwin is the gift that keeps on giving at NBC, and we’re excited to have him starring in Aaron Sorkin’s towering work as we expand our live theater imprint beyond musicals,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman, Robert Greenblatt.

“No stranger to live television, Alec is the most multi-faceted actor in the world and his range is incomparable. He will put his own inimitable stamp on the role of Col. Jessep in a play that is still as surprising and relevant as ever, from one of the most gifted writers working today. »

Midnight, Texas Review: NBC's Silly Creature Feature Is Just Scary Bad

18 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s never a great sign when a network show debuts in the dead of summer, more than a year after it was first announced. But those red flags make sense when you actually watch Midnight, Texas (premiering Monday, July 24 at 10/9c on NBC) — an overstuffed, often ridiculous supernatural drama that somehow manages to make a town filled with magical creatures seem crushingly dull.
