Big Little Lies), but he's responsible for only one internationally recognized meme: the Dancing Baby.
On Fox's Ally McBeal, this semi-transparent visual effect — aka Baby Cha-Cha — occasionally would appear as a hallucinatory metaphor for the ticking biological clock of the 30ish McBeal (Calista Flockhart, who was 32 when the show first aired). The infant's first appearance was on the show's 12th episode, "Cro-Magnon," in January 1998 when it danced to Blue Swede's cover of »

It was a bit of a mutual admiration fest when Variety invited showrunners David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies”) and Dan Fogelman (“This Is Us”) for a conversation about their creative process. After gushing over each other’s shows, the two producers bonded over dealing with network notes, juggling plot twists and ensemble casts, and why they avoid going to set. And it all ended with them making a date to grab a beer. (We’ll be crashing that party!)
David E. Kelley: Congratulations on your show. It’s awesome.
Dan Fogelman: You as well. Congratulations on all your shows ever.
Kelley: You’re single-handedly returning people’s attention to broadcast. Proof of concept that great stuff and emotional material can be done in that landscape. Good for you.
Fogelman: Oh, God. Oh, that’s very nice. Thank you. You’ve been doing that for a very long time. I »

Supergirl flew into San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday with some fresh scoop on Kara’s hardened state, James’ new love, Mon-El’s return and much more.
* Kara has always tried to balance Kara the journalist with Kara the hero, but this season, “the scales are leaning very heavily on Supergirl,” star Melissa Benoist previewed. “I think that’s how she’s coping with this grief of sending her boyfriend to this giant chasm in space.” The Girl of Steel “really is trusting herself and only herself right now.”
* No surprise here: “Mon-El will return at some point,” executive producer Robert Rovner confirmed. »

For one, the season-ending, six-year time jump means the CW drama is on the verge of yet another “reboot,” one that will “change all of our characters significantly,” Lindsey Morgan told TVLine’s Senior Digital Editor Andy Swift.
For example, Clarke of course is now playing mom to wee Maddie, a twist that has Eliza Taylor “really excited” to explore her badass character’s maternal side. »
Harrison Ford is a notoriously private actor, but when it comes to his relationship with Calista Flockhart, he's actually kind of a softie. After meeting at the 2002 Golden Globes, the two started dating, and Harrison became a father figure for her adopted son, Liam. Like a true romantic, the Star Wars actor popped the question over Valentine's Day weekend in 2009, and they tied the knot a year later in Santa Fe, Nm. While they don't usually indulge the press about their romance, they have shared a number of sweet moments together on the red carpet. See some of their best appearances below.

It’s been two decades since Lili Taylor’s first and last appearance on Broadway — in a production of “The Three Sisters” featuring Amy Irving, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Calista Flockhart and Billy Crudup — and how we’ve missed her. Taylor has done solid, understated work in movies like “I Shot Andy Warhol” and “Brooklyn’s Finest” and TV shows like ABC’s canceled-too-soon “American Crime.” And she brings that almost visceral sense of empathy to a heartfelt revival of “Marvin’s Room,” Scott McPherson’s elegiac 1991 drama that opened Thursday at Roundabout’s American Airlines Theatre on Broadway.

William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is set for a new adaptation and it features a literal butthead. Head of an ass is supposed to be the head of a donkey, but this "fresh" new take will feature a literal interpretation on the age-old pun. Bottom will have an actual ass for a face and you can see it in the picture below, no pun intended. Shakespeare wrote the comedy in 1595/1596 and it portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Thseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. The events include the adventures of six amateur actors, aka the Mechanics and four Athenian lovers who are controlled and manipulated by fairies who live in the forest where most of the play is set.
The trailer for A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to us courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and in addition to the previously mentioned ass face, »
As two-time winner Margo Martindale was promoted to the supporting actress race for her work on “The Americans,” the category is free to crown a new winner. But it’s still likely to be a previous Emmy winner or nominee. Laverne Cox and Cicely Tyson have all been nominated for their roles here before; look for repeats. Khandi Alexander in particular enjoyed a fantastic turn in the “Scandal” finale, complete with memorable Mama Pope monologues. Carrie Preston has actually won for playing quirky lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni on “The Good Wife,” but now she’s moved to its spinoff “The Good Fight.” If enough voters caught the show on CBS All Access, she should be a lock for a nom. Alison Wright and Kim Dickens could earn their first nominations for their work on “The Americans” and “House of Cards,” shows they’ve been a part of for some time now. New »

The Supergirl season 2 finale left us with lots of questions for the summer hiatus. Let's discuss!
Supergirl season two has, sadly, come to an end, which means we'll have to wait an entire summer to get more Kara Danvers back in our life. (Which is especially sad because, let's face it, we need her optimism now more than ever.)

Plan A was simple enough, a time-honored fight to the death between Kara and Rhea, to the victor goes the planet. But when Rhea proved — gasp! — less than trustworthy (“My gods only care about my victory,” she declared), Kara was forced to resort to the far-less-desirable Plan B, one which threatened her future with Mon-El.

How do you ensure your finale is big? With a super fight. And that's just what the Supergirl season two finale has: a battle between Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). "There might be a super fight. I think there's some foul play involved here and it might involve an evil mother-in-law," Benoist told us with a laugh at The CW's 2017 Upfront. The episode features Supergirl battling Rhea (guest star Teri Hatcher) to save National City. It's appropriately titled, "Nevertheless, She Persisted." "Yeah, there should be some Kleenex," Benoist teased about the finale. "Just brace yourself. It's big." Calista Flockhart's Cat »
