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? »

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.

On April 14th, the filmmaking team of Yousesef Delaraa and Victor Teran (Bedrooms) present the Blu-ray debut of their new thriller Enter The Dangerous Mind on the Well Go USA Entertainment label.

Enter The Dangerous Mind enters the dangerous mind of Jim (Jake Hoffman) – a socially awkward Edm musician with a traumatic past, a tenuous grip on reality, and voices in his head. Music makes the voices stop and that’s what Jim wants most – to hide away in his apartment, mixing original dubstep beats as a soundtrack to the insanity of daily life. When he meets Wendy (Nikki Reed »

HBO has cancelled their half-hour series Looking following its second season finale, but will afford the creators an opportunity to wrap up their storylines with a special, Variety is reporting.
Among one of the premiere cable channels, HBO has been known for a number of series over the years, from The Sopranos and Six Feet Under to Game of Thrones and The Leftovers. Among that group are two half-hour shows, Girls and Looking. The latter was created by Michael Lannan and executive produced by Weekend filmmaker Andrew Haigh, and focused on a trio of gay friends living in modern-day San Francisco, and their daily trials and tribulations. It starred Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett, and Frankie J. Alvarez, and featured both Daniel Franzese and Scott Bakula in recurring roles over the course of its two seasons.
The show’s ratings were of some concern to HBO, and the second season finale, »

Looking starred Jonathan Groff as Patrick, with Murray Bartlett as Dom, Frankie J. Alvarez as Agustin, Lauren Weedman as Doris, Russell Tovey as Kevin and Raúl Castillo as Richie. The show lasted for 18 episodes over two seasons. Season two ended with Patrick moving in with Kevin only to find out Kevin wasn't quite ready to be in a monogamous relationship. Patrick took comfort in visiting his ex, Richie, and finally letting Richie cut his hair. "Yo @LookingHBO fans - rumors are true, we don't have a new season to report, but hey, we got a movie special to shoot instead! Cool huh?? X," Tovey tweeted. Scott Bakula, Mean Girls' Daniel Franzese and Julia Duffy recurred on the series. »
The second season of HBO's "Looking" came to dramatic end tonight and before we remark on where this episode leaves Patrick, Agustin and Dom, let's take a few minutes and review the entire season, shall we? After a bumpy, but often impressive first season, "Looking" returned in January with a strong season premiere ("Looking for the Promised Land") which found Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Kevin (Russell Tovey) deeply involved in a discreet affair, Dom (Murray Bartlett) wondering if he'd become closer with his new boyfriend Lynn (Scott Bakula) and Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) trying to dig himself out of a his life hole with a slightly more positive demeanor (likely more thanks to viewer complaints than anything else). The big news was that the show runners had 10 1/2 hour episodes to tell their story versus just eight the prior season. In theory, this meant they could spend more time fleshing out »

Full disclosure: Until last weekend, we actually didn’t know that HBO hadn’t already renewed Looking for a third season. Girls and Togetherness both got picked up, and it seemed like such a no-brainer that Looking would too. It’s so good, why would it not be?
But this Sunday is the season finale and we’ve yet to hear of its fate beyond that. This morning, creator Michael Lannan captioned a Bts photo, “Shooting the S3 finale back in November.” He quickly caught his mistake and tweeted:
Wait I meant @LookingHBO S2 finale! Getting ahead of myself ;)
— Michael Lannan (@MichaelLannan) March 20, 2015
Does that winky face emoticon mean he knows something we don’t? Or are we reading too much into this, because the thought of a world without Looking is a cruel place we don’t want to live?

While a fourth "The Expendables" installment is in early development, it will likely never be made since the third film only grossed $39 million domestically.
