Viola Davis Has Plenty to Say — And to Change

22 June 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Viola Davis made history last year as the first black woman to win the Emmy for lead actress in a drama, but the accomplishment still has not sunk in.

“It’s not my style to walk around and think, ‘I can’t believe I won an Emmy.’ I just don’t think like that,” confesses the star of “How to Get Away With Murder.” “It’s hard to see myself the way others see me. From my perspective, I’m just Viola.”

She drew raves for her powerful acceptance speech, in which she quoted Harriet Tubman and referenced the struggles women of color have faced finding roles on screen. “Absolutely, there’s been progress,” Davis says. “It’s like the old saying: When you know better, you gotta do better. Now we know better.”

Do you think much about awards, or are they just a nice bonus?

You can place so much importance on it, and »

Review: Vinyl: The Complete First Season

7 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

My uncle works in the music business and his heyday was back in the 1970s, so when he recognized the music industry portrayed in HBO’s Vinyl, I took that as an endorsement. Back then, I was buying a new album almost every week (or so it seemed) and was expanding my tastes thanks to the discovery of FM radio. At the time, I never really thought about the business side of music but that came later.

Viewers today can watch people struggle for a career thanks to American Idol and more recently Fox’s Empire. Vinyl, though, takes a look back when sex, drugs, and rock & roll was a lifestyle, not a catchphrase. This was an era that saw popular music splinter every few years so rock begat heavy metal, California rock, and god help us, disco. All of which got rejected simultaneously with the rise of punk and »

TV Review: ‘UnReal’ Season 2

2 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Watching the second season of “UnReal” is like doing shots while riding a roller-coaster — a lot of dangerous ideas are careening around, and things could go off the rails at any moment. But what a bracing thrill-ride it is.

As was the case with the show’s debut season, which significantly boosted the reputation of Lifetime’s scripted programming, “UnReal’s” second go-round begins in highly addictive fashion, even if some of the gut-churning swerves in the new season’s first two episodes carry a frightening degree of difficulty. But it’s the show’s willingness to simultaneously plummet into dark places, plunge ahead with social commentary and provide pitch-dark satire that makes watching it such an exciting experience. Reality producers know you don’t want to be bored, and “UnReal” follows that mandate.

Not satisfied with targeting just the various kinds of misogyny lurking in the TV industry with its combination sledgehammer-and-scalpel approach, »

James Gandolfini -- Rolex Theft a Total 'Sopranos' Deja Vu

17 May 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

There's an eerie 'Sopranos' coincidence surrounding James Gandolfini and the paramedic on trial for stealing his Rolex the day he died.  The paramedic, whose trial started Monday in Rome, is Claudio Bevilacqua. That name might sound familiar to hardcore 'Sopranos' fans ... since Tony offed a Matt Bevilaqua in a 2001 episode of HBO's hit show.  On the show, Bevilaqua robbed Tony's crew and demanded a watch from one of the guys.

Dormant James Gandolfini Project Criminal Justice Secures New Title, Summer Premiere On HBO

16 March 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now titled The Night Of, James Gandolfini’s dormant passion project Criminal Justice has been given a new lease of life at HBO, and a summer premiere date to boot.

Pitched as an eight-part series, the ensemble drama has been collecting dust on the shelf since the actor’s tragic passing three years ago. There have been some fleeting signs of life, though, particularly when Robert De Niro flirted with the idea of replacing Gandolfini, before backing out of Criminal Justice six months later.

In his steed, John Turturro will take point for HBO’s procedural drama, and the actor is one of the few stars that have remained attached to the project over the years – Riz Ahmed, Bill Camp, Payman Maadi, and Poorna Jagannathan are among that nuclear cast. But during the creative overhaul, the network has beefed up the show’s ensemble quite considerably, enlisting the likes of Michael K. Williams, »

Film Review: I'll See You In My Dreams

9 February 2016 5:54 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ In what was his penultimate big screen appearance before an untimely passing, James Gandolfini starred alongside Julia-Louis Dreyfus in Enough Said. The awkward, bittersweet dramedy about getting back in the dating game after a spell on the sidelines is a worthy companion piece, precursor even, to Brett Haley's I'll See You In My Dreams. In a splendid turn, Blythe Danner features as Carol, a 70-something widow who loses a loyal canine companion and finds herself alone and a little bereft. Card games with the girls, golf and bountiful wine all prove unfulfilling and the menace of an unwelcome rodent house-guest doesn't help her fragile sense of well-being. The love, laughter and tears that follow make for a reassuring, poignant watch.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler isn't about to say her fight against multiple sclerosis has been easy. But, as the 34-year-old actress told E! News' Maria Menounos exclusively at the NBC Experience Store, living with M.S. is "a fight, but you'll feel better and stronger for it." Jamie-Lynn hasn't faced this battle alone, though—she drew support from family, friends and co-workers, including her late Sopranos co-star James Gandolfini. "It was the beginning of the fifth season. I was going through the divorce and my symptoms were starting to happen a little bit, and he could just tell that I was becoming a bit removed and sad.
