Top Videos: Leonardo DiCaprio Dances at Coachella, Amy Schumer Parodies Aaron Sorkin

17 April 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

This week, a bunch of kids learned what a Walkman is, and the worst Wheel of Fortune contestant ever blew not one, not two, but three puzzles on the game show. Amy Schumer and Josh Charles made a video that poked fun at Aaron Sorkin tropes, and Oreo staged a marketing campaign that challenged chefs around the country to "hack" everyone's favorite cookie. Oh, and Leonardo DiCaprio (maybe) showed off some interesting dance moves at the Coachella music festival in California. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Cannes selections: the breakdown

17 April 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Croisette regulars veterans Jean Luc Godard, Ken Loach and Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne will compete alongside Competition first-timers Alice Rohrwacher, Xavier Dolan and Damian Szifron at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Artistic director Thierry Fremaux announced the Official Selection of the 67th edition on Thursday (17) at a packed press conference at the Normandie Cinema on the Champs Elysées in Paris.

“Anyone who makes a film of more than one hour in duration, has the right to submit a film to Cannes… this year we received some 1,800 films in total – all of which were screened,” said Fremaux.

He announced 49 titles in total from 28 countries and hinted a further two or three could be announced ahead of Cannes. [Click here for the full list.]

Fremaux, who tied up the line-up at 1am local time ahead of the announcement, said films were arriving later and later for consideration due to digitisation of filmmaking.

“It used to be that January was late,” he said. “Now »

Cannes Unveils 2014 Official Selection Lineup

17 April 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.

The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”

One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

Cannes Film Festival: Early Pics Include Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘The Homesman,’ ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’

16 April 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the eve of the Cannes Film Festival’s official selection announcement, a major competition prospect has emerged in Tommy Lee Jones’ frontier drama “The Homesman,” starring Jones and Hilary Swank as a claim jumper and a pioneer woman undertaking a perilous journey across the Midwest. Also featuring Meryl Streep, William Fichtner and Hailee Steinfeld, the film marks Jones’ first directorial outing since his 2005 Western, “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” which walked away from the Croisette with two major prizes. Like “Three Burials,” “The Homesman” was financed and produced by Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, which is also handling international sales on the film.

Also set to make its world premiere in Cannes is 20th Century Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” which will receive an out-of-competition screening, in keeping with the festival’s tradition of bowing a U.S. studio blockbuster the first weekend. The sequel, »

Well-Timed TV Character Deaths Pay Off for Writers and Actors

16 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warning: Spoilers For “The Good Wife,” “House Of Cards,” “Scandal,” “Homeland,” “Shameless” And “Game Of Thrones” Below

The body count in primetime is rising. Key characters in high-profile dramas are dropping like flies as producers seek the ratings bump and social-media buzz that an unexpected death (or resurrection) brings. True shockers, such as the demise of Josh Charles’ Will Gardner on “The Good Wife,” pay dividends that extend long past a single episode, since they often allow writers to radically alter storylines — and provide actors with killer clips for their Emmy reels. Here are some of the biggest casualties.

Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) “House of Cards” (Netflix) 

What happened: The ambitious cub reporter got the ultimate F.U. when former lover/top source Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) got sick of her pesky questions and sent her flying in front of a Metro train in the season-two opener.

Amy Schumer, Josh Charles Skewer Aaron Sorkin in ‘Foodroom’ Parody (Video)

15 April 2014 4:54 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Josh Charles takes a melodramatic stand against healthy food in a new video parodying Aaron Sorkin's “The Newsroom” on Comedy Central's “Inside Amy Schumer.” See video: Aaron Sorkin's ‘The Newsroom’ Gets Eviscerated in Funny or Die Sketch (Video) Charles, who starred on Sorkin's short-lived dramedy “Sports Night” in the late '90s, plays a world weary fast food restaurant manager who's determined to stick to tradition in this spot-on send up of Sorkin's HBO drama. “You tell corporate I'm not putting apple slices on my menu!” Charles declares in the video, titled “The Foodroom.” “What's next, no »

Amy Schumer's Sorkin Parody 'The Foodroom' is a Triumph

15 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Inside Amy Schumer Get More: Comedy Central,Funny Videos,Funny TV Shows "Inside Amy Schumer" is always a valuable source of original, incisive sketches -- and in the case of this parody of Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom," a damning and hilarious one too. Amy brings aboard guest Josh Charles -- yes, the same one who's recent "Good Wife" arc has been, uh, shocking -- for a dramatic walk-and-talk version of politics at a fast food restaurant. The whole thing is funny, but the amazing moment is when Amy says, "A woman's life is worth nothing unless she's making a great man greater."  Considering Aaron Sorkin once referred to a female reporter as "internet girl" and meant it sincerely, the takedown of "The Newsroom" feels especially kickass.  »

Inside Amy Schumer Does a Killer Aaron Sorkin Parody with “The Foodroom”

15 April 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Because Aaron Sorkin has a distinct style, he's an easy target for parody.  However, that doesn't mean parodying him is easy.  There's still a cadence, a tone, and a personality to mimic, and nailing down those elements takes a sharp comedic mind.  Enter Amy Schumer, who's probably about to break out in a big way.  She's the writer and star of the upcoming Judd Apatow film, Trainwreck, and she currently has a series on Comedy Central entitled Inside Amy Schumer.  On the latest episode, she did a glorious parody of The Newsroom by resetting it in a fast food joint.  The results are hilarious.  It's also great to see Josh Charles, who starred on Sorkin's Sports Night, lampooning the kind of role he once played for real. Hit the jump to check out the sketch.

The latest episode of Inside Amy Schumer includes an incredible parody of a faux Aaron Sorkin television series The Foodroom.

This Aaron Sorkin Fast Food Parody Is Hilariously Accurate (Video)

15 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In this Sorkin parody titled "The Foodroom," comedian Amy Schumer brings Emmy-winning writer Aaron Sorkin's distinctive style to a fast food joint -- with hilarious results.

Sorkin is known for his critical hits "The West Wing" and "The Newsroom," but over the years, he's become just as well known for his snappy, witty dialogue, walk-and-talk exchanges, and elaborate monologues -- almost to a fault. Paired up with Sorkin vet Josh Charles ("Sports Night"), Schumer skillfully throws Sorkin's brand of highbrow drama into a greasy kitchen and, well, it's magic. »

Watch Amy Schumer’s Perfect Aaron Sorkin Parody

15 April 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As if you needed another reason to get onboard with Inside Amy Schumer, tonight's episode includes this dead-on Aaron Sorkin parody. Plus, it has The Good Wife and Sports Night's own Josh Charles as the righteous manager of a fast-food restaurant who just wants America to be great again, dammit! "A woman's life is worth nothing unless she's making a great man greater," Schumer says, perfectly encapsulating everything that's wrong with The Newsroom. The over-the-top sexual tension, the patriotic monologues, the fact that Charles's character is named "J.J. MacAhoy" — this is some gooood fake Sorkin. »

The Good Wife Prepares for Battle When Michael J. Fox Returns—Watch Now!

13 April 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Welcome back to The Good Wife, Michael J. Fox. We hope everybody survives the experience. In the wake of Will Gardner's (Josh Charles) death, Louis Canning is swooping in to Lockhart/Gardner. Things don't seem to be going that great. "You have to learn to trust me, real quick. I'm the new Will," Louis Canning tells Kalinda (Archie Panjabi). Needless to say, this doesn't sit very well with Kalinda. In the promo above, get a sneak peek at "All Tapped Out," and the drama that follows Fox's return as Louis Canning. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) doesn't seem to be taking too kindly to her new partner either. "You're not the enemy, you're the »

Good Wife Season 5 Real Reason Will Died & More Revealed By Will Actor Josh Charles

1 April 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Good Wife season 5 real reason Will died & more revealed by Will actor Josh Charles. Recently, TV Line talked with "The Good Wife" Will Gardner star, Josh Charles (left), to get the skinny on why his character was abruptly killed off the show like that. It turns out that it was all Josh's decision to leave, because he was just ready to move on. When asked about it, point blank, Josh said: "It wasn’t anything bad. Creatively, I was just ready to move on to the next chapter. After having a long conversation with Julianna, and with series co-creators Robert and Michelle King, I liked the idea of coming back and doing a finite amount of episodes. It all sounded like positives for me and for the show, and that turned out to be true. Once the decision was made and we knew what we were doing, it made it »

'Inside Amy Schumer' creator and star: Five reasons to watch season 2

1 April 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

So, why should you tune in to the second season of Inside Amy Schumer, which premieres Tuesday night on Comedy Central? Simple: “You’ll laugh for 30 minutes,” Schumer tells EW. “I would say only watch it if you enjoy laughing.”

Point taken. When pressed, though, the sketch show’s creator and star did come up with a few more specific highlights — including season 2′s greatest guest stars (Paul Giamatti!), targets (Aaron Sorkin!), interviewees (a phone sex operator!), and, perhaps most importantly, its effect on Schumer’s own desirability. (Though clearly, that’s not the word she uses.)

'The Good Wife': Which moments in the mourning episode hit you hardest?

31 March 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The March 30 episode of The Good Wife centered around the fact that people deal with grief differently. Holding to that truth, it makes sense that viewers would be most moved by different moments in the hour, which showed Will Gardner’s (Josh Charles) colleagues learning of and trying to make sense of his death.

Let’s test that theory: List the three moments that hit you hardest in the comments section. Here are a few EW staff picks to get us started:

Ratings Rat Race: ‘Crisis’ Falls Sharply, ‘Believe’ & ‘Resurrection’ Hit Lows, ‘Cosmos’ & ‘American Dream Builders’ Fall

31 March 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

While AMC’s The Walking Dead wrapped its fourth season last night, there were no premieres or finales on primetime broadcast TV on Sunday, but there sure was a lot of action. For one thing, CBS‘ primetime was pushed back more than 20 minutes on the East Coast and the Central time zone due to overruns from the Ncaa Tournament. That slide means the networks’ ratings are all over the court and likely to see greater-than-usual adjustments when final numbers comes in later today. As it stands right now, 60 Minutes (2.5) started off the night at 7:30 Pm, with The Amazing Race (2.0) at 8:30 Pm and The Mentalist (1.6) at 10:30 Pm. A week after the sudden and shocking death of male lead Josh Charles’ Will Gardner, The Good Wife (1.7)  faced the fallout. As Julianna Margulies’ Alicia Florrick struggled with the loss of her former lover, the show was up from last week »

‘Good Wife’ Rises on Sunday of Gains for Basketball-Boosted CBS

31 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS won Sunday’s primetime ratings race among the broadcast networks thanks to a sizable college basketball overrun, but the net also saw higher-than-usual numbers for “The Good Wife,” which built on the buzz generted by the prior week’s controversial episode.

Of course, nothing on Sunday will compare to the season finale of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” which was expected to more than double the demo average of any other primetime program on Sunday. Ratings for the zombie skein will be released later today.

Looking at Sunday’s broadcast action, a roughly 20-minute overrun from the Ncaa men’s basketball quarterfinal game between Kentucky and Michigan dominated the opening hour of primetime. Reliable numbers won’t be released until Tuesday, but the down-to-the-wire game is projected to have closed with more than 20 million viewers and a demo rating more than double the combined scores of ABC, NBC and »
