Jessica Lange has been the powerhouse female lead of FX’s “American Horror Story” for four years, and a symbol of female empowerment throughout her film career, but she’s not immune to conversations in the air this week about sexism and ageism in show business. “Hollywood is run with this male point of view. Even if a woman runs a studio, she still does it with a male point of view. And as long as that exists, you’re still going to have this wish fulfillment,” Lange said during an interview for an upcoming issue of TheWrap Magazine. “That »

We were a bit surprised when the news broke last Autumn that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk - co-creators of both Glee and American Horror Story - were planning to mesh their genres together into a teen comedy horror series. It's true, though - the show is called Scream Queens and will appear on Fox later this year. Ian Brennan, another from team Glee, is also involved.
Last night, the first full trailer landed online. You can see it here...
Scream Queens is part of Fox's fall season of 2015, so expect it this autumn.
More as we hear it.

Chicago – Browsing Dostoyevsky titles with consideration for proper roles for Mark Wahlberg, one might expect the Beantown hero to take on an adaptation of “The Idiot” before anything like “The Gambler.” After all, while Wahlberg has proven to be a diverse screen force - one who has well-grown past his Funky Bunch days - he often leans towards goofy men, or at least goofy men in goofy movies.
Such provides a nice surprise with the drama “The Gambler,” which finds him in a role the utilizes his charisma and acting skills, within a tale that doesn’t involve directors Michael Bay or Seth McFarlane. Playing a college professor who gambles his life away, the film is a showcase of his talents, like his compelling motormouth delivery, or a stable cool that he maintains even when his character is falling apart. Here’s a film that offers a scene of Marky Mark rambling about Camus, »

The 1994 film Blue Sky is something of an anomaly from the mid-90s. Filmed in 1991, it would be the last film feature of British auteur Tony Richardson’s career, who had been working in television for several years prior, ever since his coolly received 1984 adaptation of John Irvine’s The Hotel New Hampshire. Then, due to the bankruptcy of Orion Pictures, the film’s distributor, the final product was shelved for three years, at long last released in the autumn of 1994, going on to snag actress Jessica Lange her second Academy Award. Now, twenty years later, it’s a prestige that would seem near impossible to attain for a feature treated to the same fate in today’s market. This distinction potentially sets the film up for failure, which perhaps explains the lack of continued enthusiasm surrounding it.

We know for sure that Jessica Lange will not be returning to American Horror Story for season five, and we also know a few members of the next installment of Ryan Murphy's horror anthology, which is themed Hotel. Several actors whom Murphy has worked with for smaller parts on American Horror Story have been added, and Angela Bassett is the latest addition. Stay tuned for more casting, and in the meantime, catch up on everything else we know about season five so far! »
Another American Horror Story alum has booked a stay in next season’s Hotel. Angela Bassett is the latest returning cast member to join the FX series’ upcoming fifth season. American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy announced the news on Twitter earlier today. “In October, Angela Bassett will be making lots of trouble with Lady Gaga in the ballroom and elsewhere,” Murphy wrote. Like with the rest of American Horror Story: Hotel‘s casting announcements, we don’t have any other details on what type of character Basssett will be playing, aside from Murphy has said. From that tweet, though, it seems pretty certain that she will be interacting a lot with Lady Gaga’s character, who is said to be the “star” of Hotel, filling the void left by Jessica Lange’s departure. For Bassett, this will be her third season of American Horror Story. She first appeared in »

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter at the Academy Awards Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter on the Oscars' Red Carpet Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter sported matching hairdos upon their arrival at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Along with Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters has been in every single iteration of American Horror Story, so it's only natural that he would join them for the fifth season, Hotel. He joins a cast that includes Paulson, Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Chloë Sevigny, and Matthew Bomer. (Jessica Lange, as we all know, bowed out.) On Friday, Ryan Murphy tweeted, "Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64," which for now sounds ominous (or sexy?), but means little. »

One of Ryan Murphy’s repeat offenders has signed on for more of his deranged antics in American Horror Story season 5. Sarah Paulson, who appeared in all four previous seasons, is now the latest in a long line of returning franchise faces to sign on for this next chapter.
Dubbed American Horror Story: Hotel, this new stage in the series’ anthology structure is set to be a complete overhaul (or an “unusually large reinvention,” to use the words of FX executive John Landgraf) of what we’ve seen in past seasons. One factor which will assuredly mark it as a new step in the Ahs mythology is the notable omission of one major cast member: Jessica Lange. Still, even though Lange has turned in her crazy card, there’s plenty of other folks returning to the fold to accompany Paulson.

“Sarah Paulson is checking into ‘Hotel.’ And this season, she’s the baddest bad girl of them all. #AHSSeason5,” wrote Murphy.
Paulson received two Emmy nominations for her roles in the “Asylum” and “Coven” installments. She played the two-headed Bette/Dot in the most recent “Freak Show” season.

In Paramount's The Gambler, Mark Wahlberg plays Jim Bennett, a professor by day and a degenerate gambler by night, who continues to rack up more and more debt from his illicit hobby. Today we have an exclusive preview where the star reveals he wanted to take on one of his toughest scenes in the movie first, a 10-page lecture where he discusses William Shakespeare with his class. The actor explains that filmmaker Rupert Wyatt was surprised by his choice to tackle this dialogue-heavy scene right away, but the actor says that he learned a trick from his time on The Fighter, where they got the most physical scenes done as soon as possible.
We also hear from Brie Larson, who plays one of Bennett's students Amy. She reveals that Mark Wahlberg must have done that scene over 100 times, over the first two days of production, and watching him work was »
