A huge line-up of guest stars will be appearing on Portlandia when the show returns for its fourth season in 2014. The sketch comedy series from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein has already drawn on a impressive range of celebrities and indie heroes in its previous seasons, and many of them will be back again for more.
Sneak Peek nearly one hour's worth of newly released deleted scenes from director David Lynch's surrealistic 1986 noir mystery feature "Blue Velvet", starring Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper and Laura Dern.
"Blue Velvet" was chosen by the American Film Institute as one of the greatest mystery films ever made:
"...college student 'Jeffrey Beaumont' (MacLachlan), returning from visiting his ill father in the hospital, comes across a body part in a field in his hometown of 'Lumberton'.
"He proceeds to investigate with help from a high school student, 'Sandy Williams' (Dern), who provides him with information and leads from her father, a local police detective.
"Jeffrey's investigation draws him deeper into his hometown's seedy underworld, and sees him forming a sexual relationship with the alluring torch singer 'Dorothy Vallens' (Rossellini)...
"...and uncovering the psychotic criminal 'Frank Booth' (Hopper), who engages in drug abuse, kidnapping and violence..."

Executive produced by Michael Bay, it’s about the crew of a lone naval destroyer after a global pandemic who must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction.

Condon will play Zoe Boyle, who has worked at Roman Skouras’ (Kyle MacLachlan) side for years. She considers herself the “mother” of the unique group of people Skouras has collected in his top-secret organization, »

As I began to write this B-Sides, it suddenly hit me that if any sci-fi movie from the Eighties deserves a special edition Blu-ray, it’s The Hidden. Why is that Blu-ray being hidden from the waiting public? The theme song is pretty good, too.
Michael Nouri as an earthly cop paired with not-from-this-Earth enigmatic FBI agent Kyle MacLachlan in pursuit of an alien criminal living its own live-action Grand Theft Auto V fantasy body-jumping from person to person.
From the writer of The Boogens, Stakeout, National Treasure, and Operation Dumbo Drop and the director of A Nightmare on Elm Street II: Freddy’s Revenge, Wishmaster 2, and... Well, let’s just stop there.
Anyway, there’s not much that needs to be said here about The Hidden other than it’s a great movie that you really should see if you haven’t already.
The year the film was released »
The supernatural thriller - airing soon on NBC in the Us - follows a feisty young girl named Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) who possesses special abilities.
Jake McLaughlin plays Tate, a former convict once falsely accused of murder and now tasked with protecting Bo.
"Believe is packed full of mystery, intrigue and suspense, and comes from the extremely talented Alfonso Cuarón and Jj Abrams, who are masters of their craft," said Watch's General Manager Steve Hornsey.
"The series, laced with intricate twists and turns, perfectly embodies Watch's brand position of showcasing compelling, »
Tonight, The Good Wife returns for its fifth season (9 p.m. Et on CBS), and we pick up right where we left off — Alicia (Julianna Margulies) telling Cary (Matt Czuchry) she’ll leave Lockhart/Gardner with him to start their own firm with the other fourth year associates. Margulies was happy it was Cary and not Will (Josh Charles) at Alicia’s door in the final moment of the finale. “I wanted it to be an element of surprise, and that’s what [the show’s creators, Robert and Michelle King] are so good at. I think I actually got more than I bargained for,” Margulies says with a laugh. »

Sometimes I get the privilege of working at JoBlo.com to share with the world something special, something timeless, something epic. Other times, I get to show you the trailer for Showgirls 2: Penny's From Heaven. Showgirls is Paul Verhoeven's unintentional comedy about the rise and fall of a Las Vegas showgirl barely played by Elizabeth Berkeley. Gina Gershon, Kyle MacLachlan, Robert Davi, and Rena Riffel co-star and trudge through the awful Joe Eszterhas story that has become something »

James makes the case for just how geeky CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, soon to enter its ninth season, really is...
In a few weeks, the final season of How I Met Your Mother will be underway and the most long-winded romance of the last ten years will come to a close when Ted Mosby reveals to his children just how he came to meet the one they call mum. Putting aside the small fact that there is something just a bit weird about your dad sitting you down to recount the nine-year tale of all the women he ever slept with (this was acknowledged in the very funny promo for season nine), How I Met Your Mother has grown from some humble beginnings to one of America’s leading, mainstream sitcoms. As a Friends-style sitcom, it isn’t the sort of »
Preston received a Best Actress in a Drama Series nomination for the 2013 Emmy Awards and she said she still feels like she's floating on air. But the night before the Emmy nominations were announced, she had something else on her mind.
"Literally the night before I was thinking about what I was going to say to people again when they asked me why I wasn't nominated ... People always ask you that and there's never a really elegant way to answer that question. It's like, 'I don't know why I wasn't nominated' ... People were asking me that last year -- 'Why weren't you nominated? You should've been nominated.' That's all I was thinking about," Preston said in a phone interview with HuffPost TV. »

So, this is what $4.5 million gets you.Vanity Fair just released brand new photos from Napster co-founder Sean Parker's "Lord of the Rings"-themed wedding to Alexandra Lenas back in June ... and it was a ridiculously over-the-top affair.The guest list included names like Emma Watson, Sting, Lars Ulrich, Allison Williams, Olivia Munn, and Kyle MacLachlan, who all had "Tolkien-esque garb" custom made for them by "Lord of the Rings" costume designer Ngila Dickson.And while it was previously reported he dropped $10 million on the ceremony, Parker now calls that figure "made up."He does admit to spending $4.5 million to transform the Big Sur wedding site into a Middle Earth fantasy land though -- and had to shell out another $2.5 million in fines to the California Coastal Commission.To see more photos from the extravagant affair, head over to Vanity Fair's website.

Though he doesn't get nearly the same blowback as James Franco, Ethan Hawke is also something a multi-hyphenate as a writer/actor/director/author and he also knows his way around Shakespeare too. He ushered in the new millenium with "Hamlet," teaming with director Michael Almereyda for a contemporary retelling that kept the language and brought in a pretty decent bunch of actors—Bill Murray, Sam Shepard, Kyle MacLachlan, Julia Stiles, Liev Schreiber, Steve Zah, Jeffrey Wright, Casey Affleck, Tim Blake Nelson—to tell the Bard's most famous tale. Now Hawke and Almereyda are going old school again, although with a story that hasn't really been brought to the big screen. The pair are getting set to roll on "Cymbeline," taking Shakespeare's romantic tragedy set against warring factions Romans and Celtic nobility and updating it into a story about dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang. Really. No word yet »

Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams. I’m in, whatever it is. A new TV series with telekinesis, levitation and more? These are gifts to us, added to the absolute goodness of the writer/director and the executive producer. The series is Believe, and it is coming to us on NBC in 2014. Here is the trailer they presented at Comic-Con 2013:
Trailer: Believe – Comic-Con 2013
And here again is the synopsis:
Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature and even predict the future… Since she was 2 years old, Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) has had gifts she could neither fully understand, nor control. Raised by a small group known as the “True Believers,” the orphaned girl has been safeguarded from harmful outsiders who would use her forces for personal gain.

The Good Wife‘s quirky-genius lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni is “not like the other kids — that’s for sure,” says her portrayer Carrie Preston, which is why the character is among the all-time favorites in her repertoire.
Add Thursday morning’s 2013 Emmy nomination as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series to the mix, and Preston says the accolade is simply icing on the cake. “I feel really lucky I was trusted with this part, and to bring this very specific creature to life,” she explains. “It is a delight to get inside the mechanics of Elsbeth’s brain and body »

Changes are still going down over at the much-buzzed about J.J. Abrams/Alfonso Cuaron supernatural series, "Believe," for NBC. Series co-creator and showrunner Mark Friedman ("The Forgotten") has decided to leave the series over creative differences, TheWrap has learned. We hear his last day on the production was Friday. An individual close to the production says that though it was Friedman's decision to leave, the split was amicable. Warner Bros. Television, which is also producing the series, and NBC declined to comment. Also read: Kyle MacLachlan Joins J.J. Abrams' 'Believe' Pilot for NBC "Believe," which Friedman »

Brummie native Felicity Jones is one to watch with standout turns in low-key films like Chalet Girl and before that, Sundance favourite Like Crazy. She reteams with the American writer/director of the latter film, Drake Doremus (after both winning awards at the festival), for another intimate story of romantic longing, but this time she is paired with a much older man.
Guy Pearce delivers a finely tuned performance as the angsty mid-lifer, Keith, who teaches music at a school in upstate New York while dreaming of playing cello on the big stage. He gets a bit crabby with wife Megan (Amy Ryan) when she calls it "a hobby", otherwise they have a healthy relationship and a happy teenage daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis).

In a manner similar to what happens with the television schedules, the streaming services suddenly go quiet in the summer. For true cinema fans this is pretty good news because the art house stuff comes along as well as some of the better catalogue titles that might have appeared elsewhere before.
It will probably be September before any subscription winning blockbusters are added again but the smart money is on one of the big ones adding The Avengers and (fingers crossed) the last season of Breaking Bad.
By the time you read this, the new Netflix exclusive series Orange is the New Black from the creator of Weeds, will be available on Netflix. Early word is that it’s actually the best Netflix exclusive title so far, which is good news after the horrendous Hemlock Grove. I will weigh in with an opinion next month.
