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.

Is Television 'A Woman's Medium'?

5 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After winning two Emmys last week, Allison Janney said something that should be considered a truism but isn't. Explaining her successful return to TV after a sojourn in movies, the 54-year-old told Variety, "Television is a woman's medium."

Since "The West Wing" went off the air eight years ago, Janney has landed a number of supporting character roles in movies, mostly mom parts. Back on TV, however, she won Emmys this year (her fifth and sixth) for stretching to play two very different parts: a woman trying to salvage a difficult marriage in the premium-cable drama "Masters of Sex," and a recovering alcoholic whose daughter and granddaughter have followed in her reckless footsteps on the network sitcom "Mom."

Janney certainly seems to be an example of how television is friendlier to 54-year-old actresses than film is. But is television really "a woman's medium"?

Actually, you could argue that television has »

Review: Slow-burn drama 'Manglehorn' gives Al Pacino his best role in ages

30 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice — Yesterday's Al Pacino vehicle here at Venice, "The Humbling," was a disappointment: this is not the Pacino you are looking for. Thank goodness, then, for "Manglehorn", where the sure directorial hands of David Gordon Green know exactly how to unlock latter day Pacino's strengths while reining in his worst excesses. Shot November 2013 in Austin over just 25 days, "Manglehorn" is an often impressionistic character study of a grumpy locksmith, A. J. Manglehorn, but before you run away screaming that you can only take so many impressionistic character studies in one year (off the top of my head, other recent examples include "The Goob," "Locke," "Boyhood," "Winter Sleep," Green's own "Joe"), I'll note that it is among the decent examples of the form. It's difficult to write characters studies about happy people with few obstacles (Mike Leigh's "Happy-Go-Lucky" is an unusual exception) so the usual form is to either put »

Richard Attenborough Appreciation: A Legacy Beyond ‘Gandhi’

24 August 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To many in the entertainment industry, Richard Attenborough will always be synonymous with “Gandhi,” which is understandable. The filmmaker, who died Sunday at 90, directed only a dozen films, and none of them matched his 1982 bio-epic.

But Attenborough was also an actor of great range, from his lower-class hoodlum in the 1947 “Brighton Rock” (from Graham Greene’s novel) to the Pow in “The Great Escape” (third-billed under Steve McQueen and James Garner) to a high-kicking circus owner in the 1967 “Dr. Doolittle,” adding energy and pep to a film that needed both.

Attenborough’s best-known work as an actor was in the 1993 “Jurassic Park,” but his career had been going for 50 years at that point. Some of his best performances came in the mid-1960s. He starred with Kim Stanley in “Seance on a Wet Afternoon” as two scam artists whose scheme goes very wrong, and it was followed in the next »

Today we’ve got the first clip from A Merry Friggin’ Christmas, the last movie that the great Robin Williams filmed before his saddening death, and it echoes a similar vibe to the more indie projects he’d been taking on more recently including a distinct touch of World’S Greatest Dad.

Directed by Community’s Tristram Shapeero, it’s written by Phil Johnston, who’s work includes Wreck-it Ralph and Cedar Rapids. This short clip shows us Mitch (Williams), giving advice to his grandson on alternative treats for Santa after they’ve eaten all the milk and cookies! Here’s your official synopsis:

Boyd Mitchler and his family must spend Christmas with his estranged family of misfits. Upon realizing that he left all his son’s gifts at home, he hits the road with his dad in an attempt to make the 8-hour round trip before sunrise.

Watch: Robin Williams in ‘A Merry Friggin’ Christmas’ Clip

16 August 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Everyone’s favorite onscreen dad, Robin Williams, played a father and grandfather in “A Merry Friggin’ Christmas,” the last movie he filmed before his death.

A new clip from the holiday comedy shows his character Mitch giving his grandson unconventional advice about what to leave for Santa Claus in lieu of milk and cookies.

“I know something that Santa loves a lot more than milk and cookies,” he says before revealing a bottle of bourbon and a plate of asparagus. This scene may be difficult to watch considering the fact that the actor struggled with alcoholism early on in his career.

“Robin’s sobriety was intact,” his wife Susan Schneider said in a statement on Thursday. “He was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson’s Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.”

‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel In Doubt After Robin Williams’ Death

11 August 2014 8:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robin Williams had been attached to star in the “Mrs. Doubtfire 2,” the long-gestating sequel to the late comedian’s 1993 hit. Sources say that though no decision has been made on the future of the project, written by David Berenbaum, it most likely won’t go ahead after the actor was found dead Monday.

Chris Columbus was set to return as director for Fox 2000.  “His performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen, they came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of “genius”,” Columbus said in a statement. “We were friends for 21 years. Our children grew up together, he inspired us to spend our lives in San Francisco and I loved him like a brother. The world was a better place with Robin in it. And his beautiful legacy will live on forever.”

Emmy Actress Preview: Why Do So Many Female Characters Succeed at Work But Fail at Home?

6 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Barbara Hall, the seasoned showrunner and novelist, raised an intriguing question last month while talking up her new CBS drama, “Madam Secretary.”

Why are so many female characters depicted as successful in their professional lives but “broken” in every other way? “Madam Secretary” is Hall’s effort to bust out of what has become a TV cliche.

Tea Leoni stars as a former CIA analyst who is reluctantly recruited as Secretary of State after her predecessor dies mysteriously. The conflict for Leoni’s Elizabeth McCord comes as she grapples with her high-pressure, 24/7 job where national security is in fact on the line every day. But she has a solid marriage with her religion professor husband, played by Tim Daly, and healthy relationships with her two kids.
