Manuel here. I caught Spotlight this weekend and among the endless trailers I had to suffer through before getting to watch Todd McCarthy’s dazzling film, the only one that piqued my interest was Hello, My Name is Doris. The Sally Field film premiered back at SXSW and is now scheduled to come out March next year. If the image above hasn’t already clued you in, the film gives the two-time Oscar winner the showiest role she’s had in years. The film was written and directed by Michael Showalter, who you might remember as “Coop” from Wet Hot American Summer (and Netflix’s recent prequel series).
“She’s like a good weird.”
That's how one character describes Doris and you really can't beat that for a description of Field's latest role. And so, without further ado, let’s put the trailer to our patented Yes No Maybe So »

Ten years ago right about now Reese & Joaquin took the stage in movie theaters with a full sung duet as June and Johnny Cash. Both were Oscar-nominated for their ringed fire as tempestuous country superstar marrieds with Reese going on to win in a strangely non competitive Best Actress year. His & Hers Oscar nominations for lively onscreen marriages aren't anything new of course but they also aren't dependable since one of the partners is often foregrounded while the other is window dressing or is equally brilliant but just not nominated.
But of the ten double nominees who did it best in the intervening years? (I included the divorced couples just to up the numbers). You decide. To make this more exciting, judge the performances Fused. Who wins your vote then? These are your ten options

'Saint Joan': Constance Cummings as the George Bernard Shaw heroine. Constance Cummings on stage: From sex-change farce and Emma Bovary to Juliet and 'Saint Joan' (See previous post: “Constance Cummings: Frank Capra, Mae West and Columbia Lawsuit.”) In the mid-1930s, Constance Cummings landed the title roles in two of husband Benn W. Levy's stage adaptations: Levy and Hubert Griffith's Young Madame Conti (1936), starring Cummings as a demimondaine who falls in love with a villainous character. She ends up killing him – or does she? Adapted from Bruno Frank's German-language original, Young Madame Conti was presented on both sides of the Atlantic; on Broadway, it had a brief run in spring 1937 at the Music Box Theatre. Based on the Gustave Flaubert novel, the Theatre Guild-produced Madame Bovary (1937) was staged in late fall at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre. Referring to the London production of Young Madame Conti, The »

Amy Schumer gave a hilarious speech to open the Women's Media Awards on Thursday night in NYC. It really seems like no topic was off limits for the comedian, who addressed that Kardashian insult in her SNL monologue, and the state of feminism in the entertainment industry. Between Trainwreck, her epic Emmy win, and everything else in between, it really seems like Amy's having her best year ever. And the most exciting part is, she doesn't seem to be slowing down. Read on for the most hilarious tidbits from her speech, then look at even more of Amy's funniest quotes. On her newfound fame: "I just started getting famous. Do you know me? I'm superfamous. So I've been getting photographed. The first picture they took of me, I think they thought I looked like the devil." On the woman-against-woman culture: "And then I started reading these magazines, and they're like, »

The one that got away. It’s been more than 30 years since Burt Reynolds and Sally Field decided to call off their five-year, on-again, off-again relationship, but the Smokey and the Bandit actor revealed in the December issue of Vanity Fair that she’ll always be the one for him. “I miss her terribly,” he told the magazine of Field, now 69. “Even now, it’s hard on me. I don’t know why I was so stupid. Men are like that, you know. You find the perfect person, and [...] »
14 years ago today, the TV series “24” premiered on Fox, with the buzzy format of each 24-episode season covering 24 hours in the life of Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland. The show premiered less than two months after the September 11 attacks, making Bauer’s efforts to protect America from terrorism plots that much more resonant with viewers. “24” lasted for eight seasons, earning several Emmy Awards along the way, including one for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Last year, it was revived for a 12-episode limited series. Other notable November 6 happenings in pop culture history: • 1965: The Rolling Stones’ “Get Off Of My Cloud” took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was their second No. 1 hit — “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” had topped the chart earlier that year. • 1967: Bob Dylan recorded “All Along the Watchtower” in Nashville, Tenn. • 1981: “Time Bandits” opened in U. »

At SXSW this year, New Girl's Max Greenfield told us all about his legendary make-out sessions with his co-star Sally Field in the upcoming Michael Showalter rom-com, Hello, My Name Is Doris. Finally, we get a glimpse of how it all went down with the film's first trailer. It's got the makings of a great romance: googly eyes, steamy lunchroom fantasies, New York City, hipster fashion, and Jack Antonoff — with the added twist of an age difference. Field plays a woman looking for a fresh start after her mother dies, who then unexpectedly finds herself falling for the much younger (and much shirtless!) Greenfield at her job. She creeps on his Facebook (with the help of a teen), shows up at his favorite band's concert, and that's how our May-December love story begins. The great Tyne Daly also co-stars, along with Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Gallagher, and more. »

Remarkably underused across Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man movies and truly magnetic in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, few actresses boast the rich and varied career of Sally Field, who first caught Hollywood’s eye during her screen debut in 1967’s The Way West. Fast forward to today and there is already a lot of early buzz surrounding Field’s next appearance, the title role in Hello, My Name is Doris.
Written and directed by Michael Showalter, the film follows Doris, a humble, softly-spoken widow who is shaken out of her isolation after crossing paths with John (New Girl‘s Max Greenfield), an attractive and much, much younger co-worker who catches her eye. And so, in an attempt to bridge the generation gap, Field’s protagonist begins to roll back the years, attending concerts and even creating a false Facebook account all in the hope of earning John’s admiration. »

Who said you can't come of age in your 60s? Fresh off the premiere of the Netflix original "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day at Camp," Michael Showalter's latest film is "My Name is Doris," a Sally Field-starring "late-in-life coming-of-age story" about Doris Miller, a shy and generally overlooked woman of a certain age who falls for a new hire at her company, John Freemont (Max Greenfield).

"Do you guys know Doris? She's kinda weird." The trailer has debuted for a quirky, cute, charming indie drama called Hello, My Name Is Doris starring Sally Field. After a quiet few years in her career, Field has roared back recently playing Aunt May in The Amazing Spider-Man, not to mention Mary Todd Lincoln in Lincoln. She's back in a leading role again here, as Doris, an older woman pining for the young new guy at her work - played by Max Greenfield, from "New Girl". The entire cast includes Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Gallagher, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tyne Daly and Beth Behrs. This is adapted from a short film by Laura Terruso and looks occasionally funny, but not really my kind of character study. Take a look.

One of the break-out hits of this year’s South by Southwest Festival was the latest film by Michael Showalter and his first in a decade, Hello, My Name is Doris. Picking up the audience award there, it stars Sally Field as an eccentric Brooklynite who finally finds friendship and more. Also starring Max Greenfield, Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Gallagher, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tyne Daly and Beth Behrs, the first trailer has now landed ahead of a spring release.
We said in our review, “The second feature directed by Showalter, adapted from a short film by Laura Terruso, the director marries themes previously explored in his 2005 feature The Baxter with a more nuanced character study. Masterfully portrayed by Field, Doris Miller is out of place despite harboring tenancies and wardrobes that the 20/30-something hipsters of Williamsburg around her aspire to have. Simply put, she fits in more easily than the »

It's never too late for love they say, and it's the story avenue that Michael Showalter explores in the upcoming "Hello, My Name Is Doris." The mind behind "Wet Hot American Summer," "The State," and "Stella," takes a surprisingly tender tone in his sophomore, feature directorial effort, and the first trailer for the picture has arrived. Sally Field and "New Girl" star Max Greenfield co-star in the movie that follows the titular Doris, who falls for the hunky, much younger, art director John. With the help of her best friend's granddaughter, Doris finds out all she can about John, and throws herself into the hip, young Williamsburg lifestyle. Doris follows her heart even if it means she might make a fool of herself. Picking up an Audience Award at this year's SXSW Film Festival, "Hello, My Name Is Doris" co-stars Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Gallagher, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tyne Daly and Beth Behrs, »

After a lifetime of being overlooked and ignored, a woman of a certain age finds her world turned upside down by a handsome new co-worker and a self-help seminar that inspires her to take a chance on love in Hello, My Name Is Doris, a witty and compassionate late-life coming-of-age-story.
In his SXSW review from March, Scott Weinberg (Nerdist.com) writes, “… it’s Sally Field’s show from stem to stern. Not only does Ms. Field seem to bring out the best in her wide array of co-stars, but clearly she’s still got the skills required to steal an entire movie through sheer force of good humor, good timing, and plain old natural sweetness.”
Here’s a first look at the delightful new trailer.

In Love & Mercy, this year’s biopic of Beach Boys’ frontman Brian Wilson (Paul Dano, John Cusack), Elizabeth Banks stars as Melinda Ledbetter, Wilson’s wife and manager who supported the singer when his mental health began to fail in the 1980’s. The actress received high praise for her performance and may be in the running come Oscar season.
The role of the supportive female caretaker for a mentally ill man is one that has been portrayed on the big screen by many legendary actresses and has, in many cases, been awarded with recognition from the Academy.
Taking on the role of emotional supporter to a mentally ailing individual requires heavy lifting from an actress, and the Academy has shown their appreciation for the feat in recent years as well as throughout its nearly nine decades-long history.

Before she signed onto Showtime's "The Affair," Maura Tierney had done practically everything it's possible for an actor to do in television. Her first regular series role (on "The Van Dyke Show") was opposite no less than Dick Van Dyke; her second ("704 Hauser") was working for Norman Lear, on the same set where "All in the Family" took place. She's been the leading woman on a classic (if underappreciated in its time) sitcom in "NewsRadio," helped carry an enormous hit drama ("ER") as it transitioned away from its original cast, been the lead on a legal procedural ("The Whole Truth"), and was one of the original stars of "Parenthood" before a bout with breast cancer forced her to drop out of the role of Sarah Braverman. She had done all of those things on one broadcast network or another, which is why she agreed to play Helen Solloway, the wife »
