Fans of Kerry Washington and former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha may be waiting patiently for that very first picture of baby Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha. But for Scandal stars Tony Goldwyn and Bellamy Young, they've been lucky enough to see the precious little one up-close. "Yes I have met the delectable Isabelle," Goldwyn told E! News at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys. "Her DNA is really good and she's just the cutest." Young couldn't help but agree and even compared the baby to Buddha. "You hold that baby and it calms you down," she told E! News. "There is nothing annoying about that presence." The Neutrogena spokeswoman gave birth at Cedars-Sinai »
Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Tom Hardy stars as a construction foreman who's driving to London to attend the birth of his child. You really shouldn't have stressful conversations on your cell while driving, but Ivan (Hardy) doesn't care. He has to make sure his big job tomorrow goes as planned, confess to his wife that he cheated on her with a co-worker, and coaching the aforementioned co-worker through the premature birth of their baby. Yikes.
Why We're In: Hardy is more than capable of commanding the screen for the entirety of the movie. Although you hear other characters' voices, it's all Hardy, all the time. Who could argue with that?

The Ya (Young Adult) boom is in full swing, with multiple proposed franchise starters thrust into cinemas at lightning speed. In terms of market availability, this isn’t The Hunger Games, this is stuffed to bursting. One of the more promising films, at least based on the box office numbers and potential for a sequel, is Divergent. It’s got a neat idea that relates to the young, it has stars filling out all the roles, and it mixes action and romance in equal measure. It’s almost enough to make you forget that the »

The old adage says behind every powerful man is a strong woman, but the opposite also rings true for the Emmy-nominated lead actresses who are playing complex characters juggling leadership roles and personal lives.
From Kerry Washington’s D.C. fixer in ABC’s “Scandal” and Lizzy Caplan’s sex researcher in Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” to Robin Wright’s manipulative first lady in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” Julianna Margulies’ upwardly mobile lawyer in CBS’ “The Good Wife,” and, yes, Amy Poehler’s local politician in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” the characters these women embody have strong male counterparts who may support them but don’t really define them.
Even the title of Margulies’ series, “The Good Wife,” has become what seems like an intentional distraction from the way her character has evolved over the past five seasons. Not only has Alicia Florrick become a formidably talented, »

In this exclusive scene from Wednesday's episode of “The Divide,” a prison visit gets a tad intense. As prison visits tend to do.

Last year, "Scandal" star Kerry Washington’s lost Best Drama Actress to Claire Danes ("Homeland"). Both are back in the hunt this year. While "Homeland" has lost some of its heat, "Scandal" remains red-hot. Let's take a closer look at "The Fluffer," Washington's Emmy episode submission. -Break- Join the red-hot discussion about the Emmys going on right now in our fiery forums Synopsis: Olivia Pope (Washington) has teamed up with her diabolical father (Joe Morton) to take down shady government agency B613. She confronts President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), demanding to know what service she is required to provide from a demanding and irrational president and part-time lover, ultimately asking whether she is his "fluffer".

Scandal's Bellamy Young hopes Olivia Pope and President Fitz Grant don't get a happy ending. The 44-year-old actress - who plays Fitz's scorned wife, the First Lady of the United States, Mellie Grant - has admitted she doesn't want her on-screen husband (played by Tony Goldwyn) to sail off into the sunset with his mistress, played by Kerry Washington, when the series ends. She exclusively told Bang Showbiz: ''I certainly hope not! How horrible [of me]! I like to think of Olivia as a short term problem. I'd like to think of Olivia as something Fitz will get over, I like to »
Those who watched last week’s twisty premiere of WEtv’s new scripted drama, The Divide, know that Innocence Initiative case worker Christina (Homeland’s Marin Ireland) is full of surprises—for example, she drives around Philly singing along to Mos Def’s “Quiet Dog.”
“That was Richard Lagravenese’s pick. He just had a feeling that that is exactly the kind of music she would listen to. Of course it’s like the fastest song in the world. They were like, ‘Can you just learn all the lyrics to this song? We don’t know what part we’re gonna use yet. »

When Scandal returns, the ABC political fixer drama will waste no time resolving many of the jaw-dropping cliff-hangers that fans have been discussing all summer.
In the Season 3 finale, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) inadvertently fulfilled her father Rowan's (Joe Morton) wishes by boarding a plane with Jake (Scott Foley), leaving behind Washington D.C. and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Little did she know, daddy dearest murdered Fitz and Mellie's (Bellamy Young) son in a bid to become Command of B613 again and insure that Potus would stay in office.
Scandal: Who didn't survive the season finale?
The only person who figured it out was the one man who had a gun pointed at his head in the closing moments of the finale. And Harrison's fate is certainly up in the air now that Columbus Short will not be returning to the show. So, what does this mean for the Gladiators in Season 4? TVGuide. »

The Divide, a legal drama created by Richard Lagravenese (Behind the Candelabra) and Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), was originally developed by AMC in 2012. But when AMC held off on giving the green light to the series, it seemed like the perfect vehicle for sister network We tv to get into the scripted arena. It was the right choice. In the wake of marquee series like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, the nuanced legal drama The Divide might have not have gotten a chance to prove itself. On We tv, it has the opportunity to develop as that

Marking We’s first scripted drama, “The Divide” appears to harbor aspirations to be more than just another cop/crime show, but its two-hour premiere stumbles along the way. Created by Richard Lagravenese and actor/director Tony Goldwyn, the show seeks to delve into race through the prism of long-solved but controversial murders. Yet there’s a corner-cutting quality to the series — beginning with the casting — that makes this feel like a decidedly off-Broadway effort. So while We has demonstrated it’s willing to order drama as the network rebrands itself, the channel faces more work to prove it can be a significant player in this crowded field.
There’s no nice way to say the leads simply aren’t especially compelling, which might help better sell this otherwise familiar tale that hinges on a central mystery built around a death-penalty case.

Zach Braff and Kate Hudson stuck close on the red carpet at the NYC screening of their film Wish I Was Here on Monday. Zach suited up in gray, while Kate showed some stomach in a strapless black cutout dress. They shared a laugh and posed for photos together before being joined by the rest of the cast: Joey King, Ashley Greene, Josh Gad, and Zach's Bff Donald Faison, who has a small part in the movie as a luxury car salesman. The premiere also brought out Chris Rock, James Franco, and Girls star Allison Williams as well as President Fitz himself, Scandal's Tony Goldwyn. Zach and Kate play a married couple in the flick, which centers around a struggling actor trying to provide for his family while also dealing with the impending death of his father (played by Mandy Patinkin). It's the first project that Zach has written »
