2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

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

The appeal of a guest role is obvious as an actor can often make the maximum impact in minimum screen time. That’s why previous winners love to drop in on other shows, such as Hank Azaria showing up on “Ray Donovan,” Michael J. Fox popping over to “The Good Wife” and Brad Garrett showing his dramatic range on “Law & Order: Svu.”

Last year, Reg E. Cathey took home the prize for his work on “House of Cards” after two nominations. He’s likely to receive another nomination for the role of Freddy, though his co-star Colm Feore could also figure into the mix.

There are certain shows that tend to do well time and again in the guest category. One is “The Good Wife,” which has a plethora of potential nominees, from the aforementioned Fox to Denis O’Hare and Blair Underwood, both involved in a powerful gun control episode. »

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight Join ‘Man From Earth’ Sequel

27 May 2016 4:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight, Brittany Curran, Carlos Knight and Akemi Look are joining “The Man From Earth: Holocene,” a sequel to 2007’s sci-fier “The Man From Earth.”

David Lee Smith, who portrayed the lead character John Oldman, and William Katt will return. The storyline for the sequel is being kept under wraps until the film’s release in 2017.

The 2007 original, penned by sci-fi writer/author Jerome Bixby, centered on a college professor who’s actually a centuries-old caveman. Richard Schenkman is returning to direct with shooting starting next week in Southern California.

The original script was the last work from Bixby, best known for his 1953 story “It’s a Good Life,” which was the basis for a 1961 episode of “The Twilight Zone” and was included in “Twilight Zone: The Movie.” He also wrote four episodes for the “Star Trek” series and co-wrote the story upon which the movie “Fantastic Voyage” was based. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Endless Poetry’

14 May 2016 7:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over the extraordinarily diverse course of his career, Alejandro Jodorowsky has been a director of plays, a writer of comic books, a poet and novelist, a “psychomagic” guru presiding over therapeutic salons, and — oh, yes — the creator of a psychedelic Western splatter opera, “El Topo,” that in its scrappy-surreal midnight-cult way transformed the world of movies. Jodorowsky’s life has been one long prodigious outpouring (and he didn’t even get to make his version of “Dune”!). But now, well into his eighties, he has managed to reinvent himself in the most spectacular and unlikely way.

“Endless Poetry,” the second in Jodorowsky’s proposed cycle of five cinematic memoirs (the first was 2013’s “The Dance of Reality”), is a work of transporting charm and feeling. It’s the most accessible movie the director has ever made, and it may also be the best. Jodorowsky is on record as saying that »

Jon Cryer Compares Donald Trump to Charlie Sheen: He'll 'Say Whatever Foolishness Comes to the Top of His Head'

11 April 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "iPxIqvRB-l8"] The 2016 presidential election is eerily familiar for Jon Cryer. The former Two and a Half Men star, 50, says that watching Donald Trump's outspoken performance on the campaign trail reminds him of his former costar Charlie Sheen. "There is an interesting overlap between Charlie and Donald Trump. People like that he's willing to say whatever foolishness comes to the top of his head," Cryer says in a preview for Tuesday's The Real. Sheen was famously fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011 and went on a number of public rants against the CBS and the show's producers. "It's fascinating to watch, »

Jon Cryer dishes 'Pretty in Pink,' 'Superman 4' and Charlie Sheen anecdotes on 'Howard Stern'

5 April 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jon Cryer was on Howard Stern Tuesday morning to promote the paperback edition of his 2015 memoir So That Happened, a book that laid bare a number of juicy details from his life in the Hollywood trenches. After breaking through as the lovable "Duckie" in Pretty in Pink, Cryer's career went into virtual freefall as his next several films -- including the legendary flop Superman IV: The Quest for Peace -- tanked at the box office. His fortunes turned only when he booked the soon-to-be-mega-hit series Two and a Half Men in 2003, but the years in between were filled with major missed opportunities and various other career disappointments -- by his own admission, he worked just three weeks as an actor over a three-year period. So what dirt did he have to spill during the Stern Show sit-down? Below I've rounded up the juiciest portions of the interview, from his Pretty in Pink »

How Superman IV: The Quest For Peace Killed the Superman Franchise and Helped Close a Studio

19 March 2016 3:37 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Continuing our lead up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opens on March 25th,  Scott J. Davis looks back at the ill-fated Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, the final film to star Christopher Reeve as the true Man of Steel

Back in 1983, the Superman franchise was in full swing, despite the tense and fractured on-set fights and fallouts which saw original director Richard Donner leave after Superman: The Movie before he was able to finish Superman II, released almost three years later under the new direction of Richard Lester. Both films were huge financial successes with Superman: The Movie 1978’s second highest-grossing film behind Grease.

A third film was inevitable, with Lester again directing the returning Christopher Reeve alongside legendary comedian Richard Pryor, who had made a joke on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson at the time saying how he would love to been in a Superman film. »

‘Pretty in Pink’ at 30: The Best and Worst Films of John Hughes

26 February 2016 2:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before movies like “Say Anything” and “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and TV shows like “Dawson’s Creek” and “My So Called Life,” John Hughes’ classic high school romance “Pretty in Pink” dared to depict teenage love with a poignancy and truthfulness that felt both natural and wildly sentimental. Released on February 28, 1986, it remains one of Hughes’ most beloved movies. On the 30th anniversary of “Pretty in Pink,” here’s a look back at John Hughes’ 10 finest films, plus five that didn’t quite make the grade.

The Best…

10) Uncle Buck (1989)

John Candy played the title role of a lovable oaf whose babysitting skills are put to the test in this lightweight yet undeniably funny family comedy. The fifth of eight Hughes films in which he appeared, Candy showed winning chemistry with 9-year old Macaulay Culkin in what remains a career highlight.

Pretty in Pink Turns 30! Remember These Crazy '80s Styles?

26 February 2016 5:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Pretty in Pink celebrates its 30th anniversary this Sunday. Break out the shoulder pads to celebrate! The 1986 "Brat Pack" teen movie is about a girl "from the wrong side of the tracks" (Molly Ringwald) who ends up with a preppy guy named Blane (Andrew McCarthy), because of course an '80s romantic lead is named Blane. The cast is rounded out by Andie's boy Bff "Duckie" (Jon Cryer) and a perfectly smug rich guy named Steff (James Spader.) The cult favorite comes with so many throwback memories: a perfectly punk soundtrack with performances from bands like The Psychedelic Furs, a love triangle (Team Blane vs. Team Duckie), and oh, the fashion.

'Pretty in Pink': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the John Hughes Classic

26 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Thirty years have passed since the release of "Pretty in Pink" (on February 28, 1986), and yet we're still bewildered by the teen romance's climax.

Maybe we need to think of the John Hughes-scripted film as Gen X's own "Casablanca." The ending makes more sense if you think of Duckie (Jon Cryer) as Humphrey Bogart, letting the woman he loves (Molly Ringwald's Andie) go off with the dull-but-decent guy (Andrew McCarthy's Blane) because he's finally admitted to himself that he's a chivalrous romantic who values her happiness above his own. Yeah, it's a stretch, but it's just one of many interpretations to spin out of this Hughes classic.

In honor of the film turning the big three-0, here are 15 surprising facts about the best movie ever named after a Psychedelic Furs song.

1. Hughes wrote the role of Andie Walsh for Ringwald, but even though she'd starred in his »
