'NCIS: New Orleans' Zoe McLellan -- Scott Bakula Leaps to Co-Star's Defense in Custody War

7 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Scott Bakula inserted himself in his "NCIS: New Orleans" co-star Zoe McLellan's bitter custody battle, telling the judge Zoe's focus is not her work or herself ... it's her son. Zoe has joint custody of 2-year-old Sebastian. Zoe and the boy are living in New Orleans where the show is filmed, but ex-hubby Jean Pierre Gillain claimed it was unfair he had to travel from L.A. to visit his son. He claimed she was »

Lord Of Illusions: 20 Years Later, Clive Barker’s Underappreciated Horror Noir is Still Cinematic Magic

25 August 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Why isn’t there more horror noir? With the exception of a few movies — 1987’s Angel Heart and the 1991 made-for-hbo film, Cast a Deadly Spell, among them — not many filmmakers have crossbred the horror genre with hardboiled film noir. And yet it seems like such a natural fit: film noir’s propensity for shadowy photography, its fascination with the dark side of human nature and a willingness to be unremittingly bleak all lends itself to horror, which so often embraces similar conventions. And, yet, the horror noir remains a rare animal.

In 1993, author and filmmaker Clive Barker created his own horror/noir hybrid with Lord of Illusions, adapted from his own short story, “The Last Illusion” (from Books of Blood Volume 6). It follows Los Angeles private detective Harry D’Amour (Scott Bakula) as he looks into the murder of a shop owner with ties to the occult. D'Amour’s investigation »

Time, Inc. is about to drop one of its first major online video projects. As part of its larger digital video strategy, the publishing giant is releasing its anthology-style documentary series New Orleans, Here & Now across multiple digital platforms on August 27, 2015, nearly ten years after the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

Remembering the First and Only Arab World Movie Star Known Around the Globe

Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

Time Inc. Marks Katrina Anniversary With New Orleans Short Film Series

17 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Time Inc. is set to unveil “New Orleans, Here & Now” as its first major video initiative since partnering with Emiliano Calemzuk’s Rampante banner to ramp up production across its many print brands.

“New Orleans” is a series of six short films about the Crescent City, directed by filmmakers with ties to the region. The launch next month across Time Inc. digital properties and other platforms will coincide with the 10th anniversary of the devastation caused in the Gulf Coast region by Hurricane Katrina.

The shorts have been produced for Rampante and Time Inc. by Killer Films and New Orleans-based Film Office Films, an offshoot of Court 13, the banner behind 2012’s indie sensation “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Actress Patricia Clarkson, a native of New Orleans, and Scott Bakula, star of CBS’ “NCIS: New Orleans,” are exec producers with Killer’s Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler.

The six helmers on the project are John Maringouin, »

Bob’s Burgers is taking toilet humor to a whole new level in Season 6.

While being Q&A’d at TVLine’s Comic-Con suite last weekend, co-star Kristen Schaal revealed the plot — or at the very least a key element — of the ‘toon’s upcoming 100th episode, telling Michael Ausiello, “Someone gets stuck to a toilet.” (Spoiler Alert: She’s not kidding.)

Rampante's Doc Series 'New Orleans, Here and Now' to Honor 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

15 July 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: New Orleans Film Festival Locks Down Narrative and Documentary Competitions; Female Filmmakers Dominate Lineup New Orleans has always served as one of America's most culturally and historically rich cities. After the tragedies of Hurricane Katrina, there was no real concerted effort to track and document the progress, rebuilding and politics of the Louisiana city. As we approach the 10th anniversary of the natural disaster, however, Rampante's documentary series "New Orleans, Here and Now" will serve as a major contributor to this narrative. The docu-series is directed by John Maringouin. Darius Clark Monroe, Angela Tucker, Lily Keber, Zach Godshall and Katie Dellamaggiore. Christine Vachon, Patricia Clarkson, Scott Bakula and Pamela Koffler all serve as executive producers. The series will launch in August, marking the first release from the partnership between Time Inc. and Rampante. "Rampante's first series is a reflection of our commitment to »

Mindy Newell: These Are The Voyages…

16 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

“Don’t screw this up.”

Admiral Maxwell Forrest, Starfleet Command, to Captain Jonathan Archer • “Broken Bow” • Episode 1, Season 1, Enterprise

As I mentioned in last week’s column (Oh Boy), Scott Bakula also starred as Captain Jonathan Archer on Enterprise, which ran on the Upn network from September 2001 to May 2005, a total of four years. That’s one more year than Tos’s run, but three years shorter than its successful progenitors, Next Gen, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager.

Upn claimed that poor ratings caused Enterprise’s downfall; according to Wikipedia, it never rose above the Top 100 rank in the Neilson ratings system, debuting at #115, and continuing to sink until its final season, where it landed at #148. It’s generally perceived as a failure, and has been blamed for the lack of any Star Trek on either television or movie screens until J.J. Abrams’s 2009 film reboot of the franchise.

Bebe Neuwirth on First Emmy Win For ‘Cheers’

9 June 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bebe Neuwirth never expected to become a TV star. But that’s exactly what happens when you land a scene-stealing role like Lilith Sternin-Crane on a show as big as “Cheers.” The Broadway veteran also won back-to-back Emmys for the part in 1990 and 1991. She went on to score two more Emmy noms and currently co-stars on the CBS drama “Madam Secretary.”

What was it like attending the Emmys for the first time?

I’ve always felt like a fish out of water in Los Angeles and in television. I was surprised by the nomination. When I found my seat, it was way way over on the side and quite a few seats from the aisle. I remember laughing to myself and thinking, “Well, this must be the darkhorse section.” There were really great actors there but we were thinking, “They’re probably not going to call any of these names. »

Total Mensch Bradley Cooper Joins Limitless TV Show

13 May 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tucked inside CBS's fall schedule announcement this morning was another surprise: Bradley Cooper will appear in the network's Limitless series, in a recurring role. As with his part in the Wet Hot American Summer prequel, it was generally assumed that Cooper was too famous to stop by the TV version of his moderately well-received 2011 film, but he apparently enjoyed playing mind-boosting drug addict Edward Mora enough to reprise his role for the series. (The fact that he's an executive producer on the show probably helped.) In the show, Cooper's character is now a senator who aims to use star Jake McDornan — who is also on mind-boosting drugs, natch — as his "protégé"; since this show is basically a serious Chuck, does that make him the new Scott Bakula? »

Elsa & Fred DVD Review

28 April 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michael Radford

Starring: Shirley Maclaine, Christopher Plummer, Scott Bakula, Marcia Gay Harden, Chris Noth, Erika Alexander, George Segal, Wendell Pierce, James Brolin

Cert: 12

Running Time: 93 mins

The elderly have been getting a pretty raw deal from the media in recent years. Seemingly every film, TV show or advert will tolerate them, as long as they’re taking off their cardigans, putting down their cups of tea and doing everything they can to act like “the youth”. Growing old disgracefully has never been so popular, so it was with trepidation that I approached Elsa & Fred, a remake of a European film about an elderly pair stoking the embers of love against the recurring visual backdrop of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.

Starring Shirley Maclaine and Christopher Plummer, arguably a more promising combination than most, and directed by Michael Radford (who brought us such diverse delights as Il Postino and 1984), it »
