Lin-Manuel Miranda will tell the story of Alexander Hamilton on 'Drunk History'

22 July 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Lin-Manuel Miranda may have left Hamilton but he's still not entirely done with the story. During Comedy Central's Drunk History panel at Comic-Con yesterday, Derek Waters announced that Miranda will be in season four to — surprise, surprise — drunkenly narrate the rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Sure, it's not the same as getting a ticket to Hamilton but a drunk Miranda is sure to make things much funnier than the Broadway show. Comedy Central also announced an impressive roster of guest stars that will show up in the fourth season: Billie Joe Armstrong, Steve Berg, Rachel Bilson, Michael Cera, Josh Charles, Kat Dennings, Ben Folds, Dave Grohl, Tony Hale, Ed Helms, Thomas Middleditch, Elizabeth Olsen, Aubrey Plaza, Ronda Rousey, Liev Schreiber, Alia Shawkat, and Duncan Trussell.

Comedy Central’s “Drunk History” will return for its fourth season on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10:30 p.m., and the ten-episode season will bring a slew of guest stars.

Paget Brewster will narrate the friendship between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, played by Busy Phillips, and Soviet soldier Lyudmila Pavlichenko, portrayed by Mae Whitman, and their fight for women’s rights. Allan McLeod explains how the divided dispute on whether British actor William Macready (Jack McBrayer) or American actor Edwin Forrest (David Koechner) was the better thespian.

‘Masters of Sex’ Creator Michelle Ashford on the Art of Showrunning (Emmy Video)

27 June 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“This is the weirdest, most fascinating relationship.” That was Michelle Ashford’s immediate response to the biography of pioneering sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson, whose complex working and romantic partnership spanned 30 years.

With producing partner Sarah Timberman, Ashford brought the book to HBO and FX, but also to brand-new Showtime executive David Nevins, who immediately grasped the possibilities. Sure, the subject of sex was a lure for a premium cable programmer, but “not in the way you might think,” Ashford said. “He understood that the idea of looking at sex through a scientific lens would be weird, fascinating and fresh. It was not about showing perfect bodies. He knew that if we do sex, it was at least unusual enough to make people say they’d never seen sex like that before.”

Ashford initially believed Season 1 would parallel a year in the life of Masters and Johnson, but »

• Variety Zac Efron possibly joining headliner Hugh Jackman in the new Pt Barnum movie musical The Greatest Showman on Earth

Universal Studios Wicked, the movie has a release date. More on this tomorrow

• Playbill Tony Kushner writing an adaptation of West Side Story for a remake by Steven Spielberg! Since that's my favorite movie of all time I feel very weird about this. Strangely the article stays that Kushner is "currently adapting the screenplay of August Wilson's Pulitzer-winning drama Fences" which would be really bad news for the movie since it's already done filming ;) 

• My New Plaid Pants ...reacts to the news with a shout out to Pt Barnum look-alike Jim Broadbent

• THR The British Independent Film Awards, which helped Ex Machina along last awards season, and are adding award categories this year will try a new system to coincide with what voters have seen and where there are conflicts of interest. »

The Good Wife's Josh Charles and Cush Jumbo Met and Delighted Fans

14 June 2016 6:47 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Good Wife worlds collided and there is photographic proof thanks to Cush Jumbo. Jumbo, who joined the CBS series for its final season as Lucca Quinn, met Josh Charles, the dearly departed Will Gardner, and of course shared the moment with the legions of fans on Twitter. "When Lucca met Will... #thegoodwife @TheGoodWife_CBS," she tweeted with the below photo. Predictably, fans had a strong reaction. Now fans of The Good Wife knows Jumbo counts herself within their ranks. She never worked with Charles, who left the show in season five after his character was killed off, but returned for the final episode and had scenes with just series star Julianna Margulies.

‘The Good Wife’ Series Finale: Director Robert King on How that Montage Came to Life

9 June 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Artisans break down the anatomy of a pivotal scene in the series finale of “The Good Wife.”

For seven seasons, “The Good Wife” was widely held up as proof that broadcast television can still deliver dramas to rival the best of cable. Although they were crafting a serialized procedural drama on the broadest broadcaster of all, CBS, showrunners Robert and Michelle King always brought something more to the process, including a highly cinematic eye. Robert King believes there has been a “dumbing down” of the perception of cinema, saying that the focus these days is on spectacle, but “really, cinema is just about telling stories through pictures, not words. I think that is something TV can do more of. I think there’s much more visual storytelling going on than there was 10 years ago, or any time before.”

One prime example: a montage in the “Good Wife” series finale in »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A previous winner for “The West Wing,” Bradley Whitford was awarded his second Emmy last year thanks to his work as Marcy on “Transparent.” Whitford could well repeat [for playing a different character, Magnus Hirschfeld], or he could be stopped by one of multiple funny men playing themselves.

Saturday Night Live” always takes up spots on this list with its hosts and this year gave us a lot to choose from, including a giggly Ryan Gosling and the emotional return of Tracy Morgan. Still, it will be hard to top the hosting gig of “SNL’s” resident Bernie Sanders impersonator Larry David when he appeared opposite the actual Democratic candidate. David practically joined the “SNL” cast this year, popping in from time to time to play the presidential candidate in sketches.

Also stealing scenes in the political world were Martin Mull, Peter MacNicol and John Slattery in “Veep.” MacNicol has already won one Emmy, for “Ally McBeal, »

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot review: “Fey at her best”

13 May 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot review: Tina Fey impresses in this cautionary dreamed about life and reporting in the Kabubble.

The wildly talented Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock anyone?) finally hits cinematic pay dirt with her surprisingly entertaining dramedy Whisky Tango Foxtrot.  Based on journalist Kim Barker’s ‘The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan’ – a memoir about her experiences reporting in the region – this oxymoronic and cautionary tale of absurdity and realism in the ‘Kabubble’ is itself… awfully good.

Tina Fey plays Kim Baker, a successful TV network producer whose ennui and candidature (a.k.a. childless and unmarried) for a foreign correspondent position in Afghanistan prompts her to accept the position, say a temporary farewell to her equally successful boyfriend Chris (Josh Charles) and naively head off on assignment to Kabul.

After being welcomed to Afghanistan by a local woman screaming ‘Cover yourself, shameless whore!’, she »

Movie Review – Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)

12 May 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, 2016.

Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Starring Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfred Molina, Christopher Abbott and Josh Charles.

Synopsis:

Bored, desk-bound TV journalist Kim Baker (Tina Fey) throws caution to the wind and takes up a three month assignment to cover the war in Afghanistan.  Three months turn into two years, during which she learns to cope with an alien culture, unforgiving weather and the possibility of danger around every corner.

The phonetic alphabet title needs no explanation.  And this is a Tina Fey film, so put the two together and this has to be a military comedy, doesn’t it?  Surprisingly, no.  It’s a film with some humour, true, but it doesn’t set out primarily to make you laugh.  The journalist’s-eye-view of Catch-22 or M*A*S*H it isn’t.

Based on The Taliban Shuffle: »

‘The Good Wife’ Bosses Defend Finale Ending: ‘We’re Sorry if Anybody’s Thrown’

9 May 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It was the slap heard around the Internet. “The Good Wife” ended its seven series run with an across-the-face slap from Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) to Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), after her betrayal in the courtroom.

Speaking to Variety, series creators and executive producers Michelle and Robert King defend the moment, as well as explaining Alicia’s future, what it was like having Josh Charles back on set, and their plans for “Brain Dead.”

Was this the finale you always planned?

Robert: At least with regard to the last five minutes. How we got there was a bit more of a negotiated route, with regard to what actors were available. We thought Carrie Preston would be the lawyer. We thought there would be moves we would have made if we had the actors available to us. So absent that, yes.

Michelle: We knew what the spine would be, but many »

Why 'The Good Wife' Might Be Network TV's Last Great Drama

9 May 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Being a great network drama in 2016 is like being New York Yankee Roger Maris in 1961: It takes you just a little too long to get there. Sure, network shows pull in the biggest ratings, but when it's time for the industry to honor its best, those lumbering beasts seem just a little too unwieldy: The last time a season longer than 13 episodes won the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series was 2006; the last time one was even nominated was 2011.

The Good Wife was that final nominee — to date, and possibly forever. »

'The Good Wife' Fans React to Series Finale: Satisfying or Slap in the Face?

9 May 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) got slapped across the face in the final episode of "The Good Wife" and some fans felt the same way about the finale. However, others thought it was a fitting end to the seven-season saga, since the series started with a slap from Alicia to her husband Peter (Chris Noth), and ended with a slap from Diane (Christine Baranski) to Alicia. You could argue that both slaps were justified, or argue that Alicia deserved better in her own send-off. But this has never been a show for tidy endings or total justice.

Peter got a one-year probation plea deal, so he'll avoid jail, but we didn't see Alicia ride off into the sunset with Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). That storyline was left hanging with a voicemail from Alicia asking him to call her back. (The phones on this show deserve their own Emmys.) Alicia reunited with »

The Good Wife Finale: Alicia, like the Cheese, Stands Alone

8 May 2016 9:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

CBS' The Good Wife ended Sunday night on a note of deep, deliberate ambiguity that, for all its clever dodging of definitiveness, struck an oddly incorrect note. Nothing changes the fact that this was the best network drama of the past 20 years or so. Mad Men, by contrast, may have concluded on a note of crystalline, acidic perfection, but the show itself was often bafflingly uneven. I'll take Good Wife. I mean, it's not as if Kalinda Sharma lept out of the bathtub with a knife. Still. Spoiler warning: For those who haven't seen The Good Wife series finale, plot details will follow. »

‘The Good Wife’ Finale Review: Alicia Revisits Her Past, Faces Ambiguous Future

8 May 2016 8:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen “End,” the series finale of the CBS drama “The Good Wife.”

You almost had me, “Good Wife” finale, right until the end. I have some very mixed emotions about that last sequence.

The good: It was satisfying that Alicia, in a scene that echoed a key moment from the show’s very first episode, did not take Peter’s hand at the end of his press conference. She left him hanging, which was only right, given that she was about to start a new life. She held his hand walking into that room, but after that, they were done. She’d done all the Peter Florrick hand-holding, literal and figurative, she was ever going to do. About time she set off on her own.

Intellectually, I suppose you can make the case that it made sense for her not to find Jason in that hallway. »
