Holy Nip Slip! Mischa Barton Suffers a Wardrobe Malfunction and Martin Sheen's Look Is Priceless

11 April 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well that wasn't supposed to happen. Mischa Barton thought she was simply going to enjoy a Friday night out in Hollywood. But while attending a special screening of Bhoptal: A Prayer for Rain, the actress had a little bit of a wardrobe malfunction. While sitting down in her reserved seat, the 29-year-old's plunging white top just so happened to reveal she wasn't wearing a bra. What came next was a full-on nip slip! Can we all say oops? But before your eyes glance over at The Oc alumna's top, perhaps you should take a look at Martin Sheen.  While his angle would make it practically impossible to see any fashion mess-up, his facial expression delivers the reaction we may have »

Stop What You're Doing: Netflix Has Released The Trailers For 'Grace and Frankie' And 'Orange is the New Black'

9 April 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Netflix gave us a serious double whammy of a gift this morning, dropping the trailers for Both "Grace and Frankie" and "Orange is the New Black." The former definitely lives up to the insane potential that comes with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin being dually involved in pretty much anything, and also makes clear that the storyline of their ex-husbands Sam Waterson and Martin Sheen finding gay love late in life will be a major part of the series. The latter... Well, it's hard to tell. The "Sorry/Not Sorry" tag is pretty lame, but it's at least clear the third season of "Oitnb" won't be low on drama (and there's a genuine Lol moment thanks to Suzanne towards the end of the trailer). Enjoy (a few times in a row, if you're like us):

Check Out the First Trailer for Netflix’s Grace and Frankie

9 April 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ahead of its May 8 premiere, Netflix has just released the first official trailer for Grace and Frankie, an upcoming series starring Jane Fonda (The Newsroom) and Lily Tomlin (The West Wing). Grace and Frankie is described as follows: In this irreverent and touching series, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as Grace and Frankie, a pair of frenemies whose lives are turned upside down – and permanently intertwined – when their husbands leave them for each other. Together, they must face starting over in their 70s in a 21st century world. I’ve been extremely excited for the series, which also stars Martin Sheen (The West Wing) and the fantastic Sam Waterston (Law & Order), ever since it was first announced, and the trailer makes it seem like it will be just as endearing as I had hoped. It will also be interesting to see how both audiences and critics respond to the show, »

Watch: First Trailer For Netflix Comedy 'Grace And Frankie' With Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen & Sam Waterston

9 April 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This weekend, Netflix will drop "Daredevil," and for the most part it'll be targeting a younger demographic. So if you're a little bit older, or simply demand programming that doesn't involve red-suited superheroes, the streaming giant has got options. If you're not watching "Bloodline," you should be, and after you're done with that maybe you'll need something a bit lighter. And so, here comes "Grace And Frankie." Starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, and Sam Waterston, the show comes from the folks who brought you "Friends" and "Home Improvement" (uh...) and follow two older women whose lives are turned upside down when their husbands come out as gay and leave them to be with each other. Wackiness ensues in this comedy which looks like a set decorator's dream. "Grace And Frankie" arrives on May 8th. Watch below.

Read More: The 9 Netflix Original Series to be Excited About in 2015 Less than a month away from its premiere, Netflix has delivered the first trailer for its new original comedy "Grace and Frankie." Featuring a cast enviable to any show out there, the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin-starring comedy comes from the co-creator of "Friends," Marta Kauffman, and "Home Improvement" producer Howard J. Morris. Fonda and Tomlin star as long-married women whose husbands leave them for each other. Sam Waterston — who last starred in "The Newsroom" opposite Fonda — and Martin Sheen play the Misters to their Misses, and the less-than-amicable split — and did we mention this cast? — seems ripe for comedic picking.  Thankfully, the first trailer is light on too many well-worn geriatric jokes, focusing on the new lives presented to each character instead of their old lives already lived. "Grace and Frankie" debuts May 8 on Netflix. Watch the. »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Lands PG-13 Rating in Latest MPAA Ratings Bulletin

7 April 2015 8:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

First and foremost, what is likely to end up being the biggest blockbuster of the year, Avengers: Age of Ultron, has scored a PG-13 ratings for "intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence and destruction, and for some suggestive comments." This isn't too much different than the PG-13 rating for The Avengers, which was for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, and a mild drug reference. Sounds like there may be a little more destruction and -- oh, la, la -- some suggestive comments. This week's bulletin also has a PG-13 rating for Cameron Crowe's new movie Aloha starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone and we also have a PG-13 for Before We Go, directed by and starring Avengers star Chris Evans and Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Alice Eve. Nancy Meyers has a new movie coming this year called The Intern starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway »

We Have Our First Look at Our Most Anticipated Sitcom Of All Time

31 March 2015 3:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Sorry third season of "Orange is the New Black," but the Netflix event of 2015 as far as we're concerned is the premiere of "Grace and Frankie," the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin sitcom that has the following glorious premise: The series follows long-time rivals Grace and Frankie, who are brought together after their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married. Fonda and Tomlin play the titular rivals, while none other than Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play their gay husbands. Coming to us via "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman, Netflix has set May 8th as the day we'll all spend an entire evening with Fonda, Tomlin and -- we hope -- unconfirmed but obvious special guest star Dolly Parton.

25 Mind-Blowing Facts About The West Wing

31 March 2015 1:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

NBC

 

Few political dramas have ever captured the imagination of the public quite like The West Wing. Running for seven seasons, with 156 episodes in all, the programme brought American politics to the fore and also revolutionised the filming of television shows with its famous “walk-and-talk” scenes.

The brainchild of creator Aaron Sorkin, the programme was set in the West Wing of the White House, with the series following fictional Democratic President Josiah Bartlet and his political staff during their two-terms in office and ran between 1999 and 2006. Although certain things about The West Wing are widely known – like the fact that Sorkin quit the show after a dispute with network NBC – other interesting facts are not as commonly appreciated.

For example, it is not widely-known that there were five actors who were considered for the role of President Bartlet before Martin Sheen accepted it. Also, the programme would have had a »

'House of Cards': Frank Underwood More Popular Than Obama

23 March 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In Season 3 of House of Cards, which is currently streaming on Netflix, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) finally ascended to the Presidency, although he performed a number of heinous acts to achieve his ultimate goal. As it turns out, more Americans would prefer to have this fictional Potus in office than the current Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama. A Reuters poll taken earlier this month reveals that just 46% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Barack Obama, while 57% of respondents in the same poll gave Frank Underwood a favorable opinion.

In fact, several other TV presidents scored much higher than Obama's 46%. 24's President David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) scored a whopping 89% favorable rating, out of those respondents who have seen the Fox series. The West Wing's Jed Bartlett (Martin Sheen) was just behind Palmer with an 82% approval rating, followed by Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) with 78%, and Scandal's Fitz Grant »
