‘Better Call Saul’ Teaser Goodman Gets Caught Up in the Cash, Winning in (Video)

29 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Saul Goodman is seeking atonement in the new teaser trailer for AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”

Well, that’s not entirely correct: It is actually James M. McGill — what Goodman used to be known as — who makes that declaration in the 30-second snippet for the upcoming “Breaking Bad” prequel. And, also, he doesn’t really care about the humanity aspect of the atonement — he just wants the money and the courtroom “W.”

Kirsten Dunst defends Lars von Trier

11 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Kirsten Dunst has defended Lars Von Trier. The 32-year-old actress - who worked alongside Lars, 58, in the 2011 drama 'Melancholia' - insists she would be more than happy to work with the filmmaker again after he confessed to being drunk or high throughout most of his career and worried he would never make another film while sober. Lars said, comparing himself to legendary rockers The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, last month: ''I don't know if I can make any more films, and that worries me. ''There is no creative expression of artistic value that has ever been produced by ex-drunkards and ex-drug addicts. Who the hell would bother with a Rolling Stones without booze or with a Jimi Hendrix without heroin?'' However, Kirsten has since said: ''For the right role, I would definitely work with him.''

2014: A Look Back at Three Big Hollywood Roles for Three Young Women

21 December 2014 12:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2014 was a good year for women in film. Recently, it was revealed that the top ten most searched stars on IMDb this year were all women. This on its own might not mean much, given the off-screen personas of today’s women and the fascination with their personal lives. Coupled with a careful examination of the roles that women, especially young women, have played on screen this year, it’s easy to see that women’s roles in Hollywood may be headed in the right direction.

Emma Stone provided the first indication of this in 2014, with her work in The Amazing Spiderman 2. Though the movie is problematic on many levels, her performance as Gwen Stacy is one of the few things that make it work. Her Gwen is intelligent, ballsy, and determined, unafraid of the dangerous situations she finds herself in and unwilling to simply wait around for Peter Parker. »

15-Year-Old Claire Danes On Getting Famous: 'I Just Want to Be a Sane Person'

17 December 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While we're waiting for Homeland's fourth season to wrap, let's rewind to a simpler time, back when Claire Danes was a smiling teenager ... on rollerblades?

Yep, in this 1994 footage from the Et archives, a 15-year-old Danes is seen blading on the Venice Beach boardwalk and musing about newfound fame being just around the corner.

"It's a little frightening, but I don't want to be afraid of it," Danes said at the time.

Keep in mind that at this point in her career, the actress wasn't actually all that famous; she had spent just a few short weeks in the public eye as Angela Chase, the teen lead of My So-Called Life. (Before the ABC family drama from the producers of thirtysomething came along, her TV experience included little more than a Law & Order guest spot, pretty much a prerequisite for every actor.)

"I do feel a little powerless right now," she told Et »

Why Fargo Season 2 Doesn’t Need to Have a Star-Studded Cast

16 December 2014 10:10 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Anyone, who like myself, is anxiously awaiting Fargo Season 2 was probably pretty happy when we finally got some news on the upcoming season of the FX anthology series last week. It was announced that Kirsten Dunst (the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films) and Jesse Plemons (Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad) would be starring in Fargo Season 2, playing Peggy Blomquist, “a beautician with dreams of the big city” who is “trying to figure out who she is and what she really wants out of life” and Ed, Peggy’s husband, “a butcher’s assistant who is supportive of her quest, even if he doesn’t quite understand it.” However, while the characters that both Dunst and Plemons will be playing in Fargo Season 2 certainly intrigue me, what I find even more interesting is the decision to cast these two in such major roles in the show’s second season and how it goes against the typical… »

No Angelina, no problem as Brad Pitt and kids attend 'Unbroken' premiere

16 December 2014 2:08 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hollywood — Friday's announcement that Angelina Jolie would not appear at the Los Angeles premiere of "Unbroken" because she's currently suffering from a rare bout of chicken pox was met with skepticism by some, but after attending the event Monday night, we believe it. No matter what happened last week after Jolie found herself unwittingly in the crosshairs of the Sony hacking scandal, she would have wanted to be at the Dolby Theater for this. Universal Pictures realized long ago this was going to be a special moment for the family of Louis Zamperini, a man who spent almost 50 years attempting to get his inspiring story on the big screen. Many of them live in Southern California and were well-represented in the audience. Zamperini passed away in July at the age of 97, just missing the chance to see the finished film (Jolie showed him a rough cut shortly before he died). It was clear, »

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons cast in Fargo season 2

16 December 2014 1:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

FX has announced that Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) have signed on for major roles in the second season of the Emmy Award-winning Fargo.

According to EW, Dunst will play Peggy Blomquist, “a small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations. She shares her home with her husband Ed (Plemons), a butcher’s assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife’s self-discovery, even if he doesn’t quite understand it.”

The second season of Fargo will once again consist of 10 episodes and takes place in 1979, revolving around the character of a young Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in season one) as he returns from the Vietnam War and embarks on a new career as a police office in Sioux Falls.

'Top Five's' Gabrielle Union thinks you're underestimating the Kardashians

14 December 2014 1:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since she went head-to-head with Kirsten Dunst in "Bring It On," we've been waiting for Gabrielle Union to have her moment. She's shown glimpses of what a great actress she is, but she hasn't really found the role that could take her to the next level. Union's impressive play on a TV reality queen in Chris Rock's "Top Five" is just another welcome tease on how talented she really is. Far from the streets of Manhattan, where Andre Allen (Rock) and Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson) conduct their interview, Erica Long (Union) is preparing for a televised wedding spectacle in the film. America's biggest comedy movie star, Andre, and its biggest reality TV star are going to walk down the aisle and every moment will be recorded for viewers to salivate over. Andre is pretty uncomfortable with this, but as "Top Five" rolls on we discover why he's so »

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons Cast in Fargo Season 2

14 December 2014 6:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) are the two latest actors to join the cast of Fargo Season 2. I like both of these actors, and this will be a great project for them to take on. 

It was previously reported that Rachel Keller was cast in the series and that Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec) were in discussions. Donovan will play a man named Dodd, Keller has been cast as Simone, and if Offerman signs up, he’ll take on a character named Carl. 

According to THR, Dunst will play a character named Peggy Blomquist, “a beautician with big-city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with societal expectations.” As for Plemons, he will play Ed, “Peggy's husband and a butcher's assistant who wants to be supportive of his wife's self-discovery »

Week in Review: Darren Aronofsky could direct ‘The Good Nurse’

12 December 2014 1:08 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though this year’s Noah turned a lot of heads and made more than a handful of viewers frustrated, be it for declining to use the word “God” or just including Rock Titan Angel things into a Biblical story, Darren Aronofsky still remains a highly valued director and ever rising auteur in Hollywood.

Aronofsky is currently working on MaddAddam for HBO, an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s trilogy of dystopian sci-fi books. But The Playlist has done a little digging and determined that his next film could be based on the book The Good Nurse, written by Charles Graeber.

The Good Nurse is a non-fiction story of Charlie Cullen, a medical professional arrested in 2003 after it was discovered that he was responsible for the deaths of as many as 300 patients over the course of his long career, and quite possibly the most prolific serial killer in American history.

Fargo To Premier Season 2 in Fall 2015

12 December 2014 7:41 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

We have good and sad news for Fargo fans. FX will start filming the second season in January with a fall 2015 premier date set in mind. This is good news as it sets the ball rolling into action for the show. However, we are only a little less between now and then. This may upset some fans who want more of the series. However, we also have two new faces who signed on to the series, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons. The second season was hinted at a switch in story and cast when they signed on for 10 more episodes.

I am not sure how we can feel about all of this. Fans are clearly upset that the cast and story will be changing. I am not sure if FX can support another show like that. Most of fans who loved season one want more of that. However, I do »

Kirsten Dunst ("Spider-Man") and Jesse Plemons ("Breaking Bad") have joined the cast of the second season of FX's "Fargo" in starring roles.

Dunst will play Peggy Blomquist, described as "a small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations."

Set in Sioux Falls in 1979, the ten-episode second season of the anthology miniseries will feature new characters and a younger version of Keith Carradine's Lou Solverson.

Kirsten Dunst And Jesse Plemons Set For Fargo Season 2

11 December 2014 2:10 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Initially greeted with some scepticism – after all, how could you adapt something as singular as a Coen brothers film into a TV series? – the small screen version of Fargo proved to be a treat, featuring great performances from the likes of Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton and Allison Tolman and a solid storyline than has seen the show nominated for a Golden Globe. Season 2 will be a very different story with a fresh cast and Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons will be part of the ensemble.With showrunner Noah Hawley back in charge once more, the new series is set in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1979. Small-town beautician Peggy Blomquist (Dunst) is a woman with big-city dreams and a yearning to change her life, while her butcher’s assistant husband Ed (Plemons) wants to support her new-found desire for self-discovery, but isn’t sure how to show it.Their story »
