Hugh Jackman Breaks His ‘Wolverine Diet’ in the Most Epic Way with Help from Mario Batali

25 February 2017 11:46 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Stand back, Hugh Jackman is off his diet.

For the past 17 years, the actor has kept to a strict regimen to stay in shape for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men series. But now that the final installment, Logan, hits theaters next week, Jackman is ready to binge. Luckily, he had Jimmy Fallon to help him do it during his appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday.

“The good news of not doing this is you don’t have to keep that Wolverine diet because every time you were here you were eating some boiled chicken and broccoli. That’s all you ate, »

You know it’s a good day when you get to post not one, but two things about Seinfeld.   To this day, nearly 20 years later we know that Seinfeld was a show about “nothing” but what does that really mean?  Is there more to the show than we realize?  Could we be missing vital information all these years later?  I just came across a new video that just may shed some light on some stuff. In the video you are about to see Seinfeld creators Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld, Kramer, George, Elaine explain what Seinfeld is actually about. Is this

Tracy Morgan’s Next Comedy Special Will Debut on Netflix

24 February 2017 9:37 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix’s onslaught of highly anticipated comedy specials continues: Tracy Morgan’s first stand-up special since the 2014 traffic accident that nearly took his life will drop on the streaming service on May 16.

The “30 Rock” star filmed the special, “Staying Alive,” in October 2016 in New Jersey, tackling the difficulties in coping with a traumatic brain injury and learning to walk again (while falling for his physical therapist), as well as the loss of his friend James McNair in the crash.

Morgan has made a full recovery and has . In addition to the already-taped “Staying Alive,” Morgan will star in a Richard Pryor biopic, “Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?,” where he’ll star as Redd Foxx. He also has big-screen comedy “The Clapper” in the hopper, can currently be seen in the Ice Cube-Charlie Day feature comedy “Fist Fight,” and will star in a comedy for TBS executive produced by Jordan Peele, John Carcieri »

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

22 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

22 February 2017 9:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Louis C.K.’s next two comedy specials will debut exclusively on Netflix, Variety has learned.

The first of the specials, titled “2017” and filmed in Washington, D.C., will premiere April 4 globally on Netflix.

His latest series, “Horace and Pete,” was distributed solely through louisck.net; after its first run on his site, Hulu picked up the syndicated streaming rights.

“Louis has been one of the most innovative comedy voices in this new era of stand up. He has also been a thought leader in the business of comedy. We have marveled at his creativity and his ability to invent comedically  and commercially, and »

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com), audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

‘Dean’ Trailer: Demetri Martin Goes Looking for Love in Charming Tribeca Winner — Watch

17 February 2017 9:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“First big thing in your life you’re never going to get over.”

Demetri Martin pulls triple duty on the Tribeca prize-winning feature “Dean,” in which the comedian not only stars as the eponymous Dean, but also writes and directs the feature. Martin’s first foray behind the camera won The Founders Awards for Best Narrative Feature at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and is now hitting theaters this summer, just in time to give audiences the kind of sweetly melancholic shot in the arm seasonal cinema rarely provides.

The film follows Dean, a Brooklyn illustrator reeling from the recent death of his mother, who embarks on a spontaneous trip to Los Angeles in hopes of kickstarting his life, sans sadsackness. But while Dean is (awkwardly) gallivanting around the left coast (and maybe even finding some »

“On the one hand they are extremely close to me, and on the other hand they have nothing to do with me,” the actress Isabelle Huppert says of the many characters that she’s played, as we sit down at the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The Frenchwoman — an Oscar nominee for the first time, at the age of 63, for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Paul Verhoeven‘s 2016 French-language drama Elle — continues, “I have nothing to do with this woman from Elle who runs a video game company — I don’t even know myself how to work my computer — so I’m completely far from the character. I’m not a philosophy teacher [as in Things to Come, her other 2016 film], I never killed my father or my mother [as in 1978’s Violette], so I have »

Pete Holmes: HBO’s ‘Crashing’ Shares Some ‘Girls’ DNA

16 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wednesday night’s “Crashing” premiere at the Avalon in Hollywood, was like a comedy prom as part of Judd Apatow‘s pack gathered to celebrate the debut of Pete Holmes’ wry new show. Writing what he knew, the show is about Holmes’ breakup with his wife after she cheated on him while he struggled to be a successful comedian. In real life, Holmes is now happily engaged.

Holmes explained why “Crashing” is a good fit at HBO, “It reminds me of ‘Girls’ in the way we’re trying to take the biggest shortcomings and things that make my character gross and showcasing those. That’s something Lena [Dunham] is so good at: showing things people usually hide and bringing them onscreen for comedy.”

Holmes also shows how his Christian religion affected his comedy journey in the story, “I liked Jerry Seinfeld, Brian Regan, Ray Romano – I really liked those guys and I was trying to be one of »

“I could not have had a happier place to go when I wasn’t in the midst of the tsunami — the wonderful tsunami — that was Hamilton,” says the actor/playwright/composer/songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda of writing seven original songs for the Disney animated film Moana while simultaneously appearing in the biggest Broadway phenomenon in history. Hamilton, which Miranda created and starred in through last July, won 11 Tony Awards, two of which went to him personally, as did a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ and a Grammy Award. For Moana, meanwhile, he is nominated for the best original song Oscar, for his song “How Far I’ll Go” — and if he wins, he will become only the 13th — and, at just 36, the youngest — Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner) in history.

“It was an experience of collaboration like I’d never had before,” says the actress Emma Stone of the making of La La Land as we sit down at Santa Barbara’s Biltmore Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The 28-year-old won the best actress SAG Award and is nominated for the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Mia, a struggling young actress in love with Ryan Gosling‘s struggling young musician Sebastian, in Damien Chazelle‘s original musical — one of a record-tying 14 nominations bestowed upon it by the Academy — which hits home for her as much as anyone. “I do understand a lot of what Mia’s going through,” she says, noting that reading Chazelle’s script for the first time both “lifted me up and broke my heart. »

“It’s utterly overwhelming,” says the actor Dev Patel of his banner awards season as we sit down at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Eight years after Patel first burst onto the scene with Slumdog Millionaire, he has, over the last six months, gone from the triumphant world premiere of the latest film in which he stars, Garth DavisLion, at September’s Toronto International Film Festival (where Slumdog also exploded onto the scene) to a best supporting actor Oscar nomination (his first, and only the third ever bestowed upon an actor of Indian descent), also picking up Golden Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice and BAFTA noms along the way.

“What I hadn’t done before [Slumdog] was properly struggle,” Patel says, “and in-between that film and this film, »

‘Seinfeld,’ ‘ER,’ and John Landgraf’s Libido: NBC Vets Reminisce About ‘Must See TV’ Era

7 February 2017 4:56 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Consider these two facts: In 1994 and 1995, an average of 75 million Americans tuned in every Thursday night to NBC. And during entertainment president Warren Littlefield’s tenure, NBC won 168 Emmy Awards.

“Staggering,” said Wme’s Rick Rosen, as he opened the Hollywood Radio and Television Society’s luncheon celebrating NBC’s “Must See TV” in Beverly Hills. The lineup was pretty staggering, too. Rosen and Littlefield were joined by the Beckman Group’s Preston Beckman, Freeform’s Karey Burke, FX’s John Landgraf, Showtime’s David Nevins, TBS and TNT’s Kevin Reilly, and Big Beach’s Robin Schwartz — all of whom briefly worked together at NBC in the ’90s. The event looked back at the network’s signature hits developed under Littlefield, including “ER,” “Seinfeld,” “Friends,” “Will & Grace,” and “Law & Order.”

Littlefield began by crediting the guiding principles of his mentors, Brandon Tartikoff and Grant Tinker, the latter of whom was known for the dictum, “First »
