David Nevins, Showtime prexy, said in an official statement:
“Both Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex are quintessentially Showtime: bold, provocative, premium television with production values at the top of the food chain. These acclaimed shows are filled with complex and interesting characters and settings that will no doubt give audiences compelling television to invest in for seasons to come.”
Masters of Sex, about human sex pioneers William Masters (Martin Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), has been roundly acclaimed since its premiere, and this year it received five Emmy nominations, including one for Caplan’s performance. Already, it won Guest Actress in a Drama for Allison Janney’s heartbreaking turn at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys.

My favorite summer TV series is "Masters of Sex," which has deepened its exploration of male-female relationship dynamics in its second season. So I'm delighted to report that Showtime has renewed the hourlong series about the work and life of the famous sex research couple Masters and Johnson for a third season, along with hardboiled drime series "Ray Donovan," starring Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight. Both shows are up for Emmy Awards, with “Masters of Sex” in contention for five including Lizzy Caplan-- Allison Janney already won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend. Voight is a nominee for playing Mickey Donovan (more on movie stars who shine in TV roles here). (Why "Masters of Sex" is one of the best shows on television here.) “Ray Donovan” averages five million weekly viewers on multiple platforms, with “Masters of Sex” coming in under four million weekly viewers. »

After making a substantial profit at the box office during its Spring 2014 release (via Millennium Ent.), the mild media fury surrounding the continuing Mia Farrow/Woody Allen saga was still in popular parlance, which many assumed might hurt ticket sales. Apparently this wasn’t the case and critics and audiences seemed to embrace a chance to see Allen in front of the camera in a lightly entertaining role. Repeated viewings may crumble Fading Gigolo‘s mild comedic offerings, but its warm theatrical response should ensure a healthy shelf life.

But beyond drama from the gossip rags, Turturro’s got a perversely curious concept on his hands by casting himself as a reluctant gigolo with Allen starring as his affable pimp. That said, this central concept kinda sorta fizzles out as the film becomes a »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through. Epps reportedly beat out actors Michael B. Jordan, Nick Cannon, and Marlon Wayans after Wayans had also been previously attached to another Pryor film, this one »
