Paul Reubens Will Get Bad for 'The Blacklist'

22 August 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Blacklist" is one of the hottest shows on TV right now, and it's racking up some seriously cool guests to prove it. The drama, which stars James Spader as an ultra-smooth criminal nicknamed Red who decides to turn himself in to the FBI for his own mysterious reasons, will feature none other than Paul Reubens as a well-dressed criminal named Mr. Vargas in at least two episodes next season.

Exec producer Jon Bokenkamp told Entertainment Weekly, "It can't get strange enough for me. One of the most fun things is being able to write for actors who I've admired and think are interesting and try to play against expectations. I think this will be a fun one. I'd say he's gonna shake things up a bit when he enters Red's orbit." We'll always love Reubens as Pee-Wee, but we can't get enough of him in dark roles like this. »

Billy Bob Thornton talks 'Fargo,' 'Entourage,' and why he'll never direct again

15 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Billy Bob Thornton has played some devilish characters, but never one as frightening and fascinating as Fargo’s Lorne Malvo. Malvo is a mysterious grim reaper of sorts who lives by a strict code of malevolence — one that has a way of rubbing off on the innocent souls around him. In the premiere of FX’s new series, which airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. Et, a chance encounter with pathetic pushover Lester Nygaard (Sherlock’s Martin Freeman) leads to some very bad things in the small town of Bemidji, Minn.

Watch Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Swan Song’ and 7 More From the Most Important Year for Shorts at Sundance

18 January 2014 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This is a special edition of Short Starts, where we look at the Sundance shorts program class of 1993. 1992 and 1994 are very notable years in the history of the Sundance Film Festival. Mostly for features. In between, the 1993 event should be recognized for its short film program. It was only the second year of this section — though shorts were an increasingly significant part of the fest since 1988 — and it remains, two decades later, probably the most important (if not best) batch of short films to ever come together in Park City. Among the filmmakers receiving their first real notice in this program were Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, David Wain, Eugene Jarecki, Tamara Jenkins, Ted Demme, Stanley Tucci (as writer/producer), Gary Fleder, Alex Sichel, Mike Mitchell and animators Eric Darnell and Matt O’Callaghan. Their early works played alongside shorts by Michael Almereyda, Lourdes Portillo and two eventual Oscar nominees, Christian Taylor »

Exclusive: Copper executive producer Thomas Kelly has signed an overall deal with AMC. Under the two-year pact, he will work on existing AMC series and develop new projects. “Tom Kelly is a great writer, and a truly unique voice in multiple mediums,” AMC’s Evp of programming Joel Stillerman said. “His background as a novelist and screenwriter – as well as a television writer and showrunner – conspire to bring a perfect sensibility to rich, character-based, serialized storytelling.” Kelly, considered one of the top urban novelists of his generation, has authored three books.
