Hollywood Rages at Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Decision

30 June 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

This morning's big news out of Washington has enraged Hollywood. The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that family-owned companies don't have to cover contraception in their health plans if they object based on religious principles, sparking anger across the nation among women's rights activists and reasonable humans otherwise. Also read: John Oliver Rips on Hobby Lobby and Supreme Court in Searing Segment While quite often, Hollywood is the opposite of reasonable, its stars’ liberal disposition meant that many were absolutely livid over the decision, which led to some angry tweets (because what else can anyone do)? No words. #Scotus #CorporateTheocracy »

How Hit Guest Stars Ended Up on TV’s Top Shows

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

Playing a guest role on a TV show can be one of the most difficult acting jobs: While series regulars have the luxury of building a role over time, a guest star has to drop in and create a fully fledged character, sometimes with only a few lines.

Dawn Steinberg, executive VP of Talent and Casting at Sony Pictures Television, which produces such shows as “The Blacklist” and “Masters of Sex,” compares it to visiting a household. “You’re walking into a family dinner, the table has already been set,” she notes. “And it’s your job to sit at the table and pass the turkey, pass the vegetables, and fit in. Whether you’re the villain, the good guy, the uncle, the aunt, the doctor, the lawyer, your job is to fit in with an already established cast, and that’s really hard.”

Even when a recognizable name is cast in a role, »

After months of hinting, it was finally announced in official terms that Glenn Close, the six-time Oscar nominee and multi-Emmy-winning star of Dangerous Liaisons and Damages, among many other projects, will take her first stab at Broadway in two decades in Edward Albee’s magnificent domestic dramedy A Delicate Balance, last revived in 1996 in a Tony-winning production with George Grizzard and Elaine Stritch.

12 of the Best TV Moms Ever

8 May 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Yesterday we took a tour of some of the small screen’s worst mothers, and today it’s time to celebrate the ladies who did it best.  Ranging from traditional to terrifying, these mothers represent the kinds of moms we’d be honored to call our own. (Of course, I should mention that my own mother blows these fictional ladies out of the water – mean it, Ma!)

(in alpha order)

Morticia Addams (The Addams Family)

Goth icon Morticia (Carolyn Jones) belongs on this list because she didn’t give a rat’s damn about fitting into the mold of a modern wife and mother – she clearly loved her children dearly (also her garden of Deadly Nightshade), and the fact that she looked like Vampira from Plan 9 From Outer Space was nobody’s damned business. Steadfast in her loyalty to family and tradition, Morticia taught us all to let our »

Watch Sean Astin and Corey Feldman Chat About 'Goonies 2'

8 May 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sean Astin was doing a live HuffPost interview in support of his new comedy Moms' Night Out when he was surprised by guest Corey Feldman, who also has The M Word currently in theaters. It's not those two movies that had the former co-stars talking, though. It was the thought of reuniting for The Goonies 2 that got them both excited. And it sounds like it's a real thing.

Director Richard Donner dropped the news last month that a sequel to the 1985 classic children's adventure was moving forward, and that executive producer Steven Spielberg came up with the story idea. Sean Astin confirms that in the following video:

Corey Feldman asks his former co-star and longtime friend what the deal is with The Goonies 2.

"What's happening with 'Goonies 2?' That's what everybody wants to know. What are we doing?!"

Interview: Keith Carradine talks 'Fargo' and a 'Deadwood' anniversary

22 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Calgary - If actors aren't monitoring when there shows are celebrating their 10th anniversaries, I've taken it upon myself to inform them. Like in January, Method Man didn't know that the 10th anniversary of "Method & Red" is coming up this summer, but I told him. And now he knows! Assuming he remembers. Which he probably doesn't. And in March, on the Calgary set of FX's "Fargo," I told Keith Carradine about the 10th anniversary of "Deadwood." He hadn't known, but he's more likely than Method Man to remember. And yes, I place the 10th anniversaries of "Method & Red" and "Deadwood" on the same plane. Playing Lou Solverson, father of Allison Tolman's Molly Solverson, Carradine is part of the soulful core of "Fargo." Yes, there's a spiraling assortment of increasingly violent crimes, but there's also the relationship between a father, a former cop now living a safer life behind the counter of a diner, »

28 Things We Learned from ‘The Goonies’ Commentary

10 April 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Whether you saw it in the theaters in the 80s, or watching it dozens of times while it played on HBO in the 90s, The Goonies has become an essential part of the childhood movie diet. That’s pretty impressive for a film that includes that many pre-teen curse words, sexual references and dangerous situations. Billed as a collaboration between producer Steven Spielberg and director Richard Donner, it was one of the few hits from the 80s that didn’t get an immediate sequel. Whether you’re still waiting around for that sequel – and whether you think that sequel is a good idea or not – you can still enjoy The Goonies in a variety of home video formats. Back when the DVD was released in the 2001, the cast reunited with Richard Donner to provide a commentary track that has been preserved on subsequent Blu-ray releases. Even though the commentary track is almost as old now as the »

Corey Feldman Wants a Magical 'Goonies 2' Script

8 April 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The biggest story of the year broke this past weekend when director Richard Donner confirmed that he is moving forward on The Goonies 2 with the entire cast (except for Anne Ramsey and John Matuszak, aka Sloth, R.I.P.) returning to reprise their roles. Was this for real? Or was Richard Donner just continuing to fan the flames of a pipedream that has long been discussed at Warner Bros.? According to original star Corey Feldman, a sequel is most certainly in the works. But will it happen?

Corey Feldman is quite an active voice on Twitter, and confirmed yesterday that director Richard Donner had approached him about The Goonies 2 a few months ago. Of course our beloved Felddog wants to return, but he's heard this story before. Donner has been threatening to make this follow-up for years, and this time, he claims to have Steven Spielberg coming along as an executive producer, »

Richard Donner Confirms The Goonies 2

7 April 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Richard Donner has been captured on video – albeit by the ethically questionable TMZ – stating categorically that The Goonies 2 is a go. The clip, which sees the director being questioned while signing autographs, shows him clearly saying of his 1985 classic film, “We’re doing a sequel.” When asked which of the original stars would return, he is heard to reply, “Hopefully all of them!”

The Goonies was one of those movies that surprised everybody and passed into Hollywood legend. Like Gremlins, The Lost Boys, or The ‘Burbs – it was a 1980s film that featured relatable characters dealing with situations that had a decidedly sinister edge to them. With a screenplay by Chris Columbus (Nine Months), based on a story by Steven Spielberg (who also executive produced), The Goonies was an adventure comedy about a group of teenagers living in the ‘Goon Docks’ area of Astoria, Oregon. In trying to save their homes from demolition, »
