Donald Trump’s Blind Date With Candice Bergen Was a Disaster, Actress Says

23 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump may have mastered the art of the deal — but when it comes to women, he was no expert … at least not according to Candice Bergen. “We had a blind date in college,” the “Murphy Brown” star told People on Thursday. “It was a very short evening.” Apparently Trump and Bergen went out on a date when they were both attending the Wharton School of Business.

Candice Bergen Says Her Date with Donald Trump Was 'Short' - but She Does Remember His Burgundy Limo

12 February 2016 4:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Candice Bergen could have been a Trump. "We had a blind date in college," the actress told People at the American Songbook Gala Thursday evening in New York City about her brief encounter with Donald Trump. For Bergen, 70, the sparks just didn't fly. "It was a very short evening," Bergen said. Trump revealed last August that he had asked Bergen out when they were both attending the prestigious Wharton School of Business. And she still doesn't feel much of a connection to the Republican presidential hopeful. Bergen told reporters that she is a supporter of Hillary Clinton. "I have no memory of it, »

Michael Bloomberg Shares Spotlight at Lorne Michaels’ Lincoln Center Tribune

11 February 2016 10:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg found more than a little encouragement for his potential run for president Thursday night when he attended Lincoln Center’s American Songbook tribute to Lorne Michaels.

Bloomberg nearly stole the show from the honoree at the after-party at Alice Tully Hall, when high-wattage fans including Steve Martin urged him to mount a run for the White House. Bloomberg confirmed earlier this month that he was considering jumping in to the 2016 presidential race as an independent.

Bloomberg wouldn’t say any more about where his deliberations stand or what timetable he’s set for making a decision, nor would he expand on his motivation for launching a third-party candidacy. When asked variations on all of those questions by Variety, Bloomberg had an answer ready. “No. I can confirm I am not going to see the Knicks tomorrow,” he said.

American Crime: Joey Pollari Breaks Down Eric's 'Dangerous' Phone Call, Teases Upcoming 'A-ha!' Moment

10 February 2016 7:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A word of warning to the characters on American Crime: That phone call you’re about to make is probably not a good idea.

When Season 2 of the ABC drama began, Lili Taylor’s Anne Blaine made a 911 call (“I’d like to report a rape”) that rocked both her and her son’s worlds, with arguably very little payoff. And on Wednesday’s episode, history repeated itself when Joey Pollari‘s Eric Tanner picked up his cell phone and dialed rape accuser Taylor, asking if the two could hash things out at the local rec center.

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks or Phyllis Brooks or Louise Brooks, »

TCM's Oscar Series: Phony Oscar-Winning Biopic, Minor Hawn Classic

6 February 2016 3:07 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'A Beautiful Mind' with Russell Crowe. '31 Days of Oscar' on TCM: 'The Wind and the Lion,' 'The Man Who Would Be King' Turner Classic Movies' “31 Days of Oscar” continues on Saturday, Feb. 6, '16, with more recent fare – as in, several films released in the last four decades. Among these are The Wind and the Lion, The Man Who Would Be King, A Beautiful Mind, Swing Shift, and Broadcast News. John Milius' The Wind and the Lion and John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King are both 1975 releases featuring “Westerners” (i.e., white people) stranded in “exotic” and potentially dangerous locales (i.e., places inhabited by dark-skinned non-Christians) in the distant past: the former in early 20th century Morocco; the latter in a remote region in colonial India in the late 19th century. (That particular area, Kafiristan, is located in today's Afghanistan.) The thematic similarities between the two films end there, »
