Did We Convince David Benioff to Give Amanda Peet a Game of Thrones Role? Maybe!

18 April 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Amanda Peet has been trying to land a part on Game of Thrones for years, but her request continues to fall on deaf ears. Those ears happen to belong to her husband, the HBO show’s co-creator David Benioff, who has used age, nudity, and just flat “no” as his rationale for why various female roles wouldn’t be right for her. When Peet first shared her conundrum with us a few seasons ago, with Benioff at her side, Vulture decided to make it our mission to find her the right part on the show. (Especially after she told us that just for fun, she acts out all the different parts in the scripts.) Then, finally, at the Game of Thrones premiere party for season four a few weeks ago, we seemed to land on a part that worked for both of them: a septa. “Oh my God, I’m »

Red carpet trends - accordion pleats, fishtail braids

23 March 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Los Angeles, March 24: Do you want to know the looks that are gaining fashion ground? Accordion pleats and fishtail braids are trending on the red carpet.

People.com presents a weekly roundup of the looks that are trendy right now:

* Up: Accordion Pleats: It's a very specific kind of folding that seems to be resonating among celebrities - Dianna Agron was seen in a Miu Miu dress featuring accordion (or knife) pleats, and other actresses including Amanda Peet and Sasha Pieterse are following her lead. Expect to see a whole lot of non-flat-front minis, midis and maxis and perhaps even a few pleated culottes this spring.

Up: Fishtail Braids: Ice cream, flip-flops and beachy plaits. Once you start spotting those. »

Kristin Cavallari Defends Anti-Vaccination Stance on Watch What Happens Live

19 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

var brightcovevideoid = '3360522398001'; Kristin Cavallari doesn't believe in vaccinations - for her children, anyway. The former reality starlet was considerably more restrained than Jenny McCarthy while defending her own anti-vaccination stance to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday. "I'm just a mom. I'm trying to make the best decision for my kid," she said. "There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines … We feel like we're making the best decision for our kids." Cohen's question was spurred by a Fox interview Thursday in which Cavallari admitted to not vaccinating her kids to a disbelieving Lisa Kennedy, »

Macy, Molly Shannon and Felicity Huffman, Trust Me is the second feature film written and directed by Gregg who made his directing debut with Choke, an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel.

Tribeca Film Festival 2013: ‘Trust Me’ Review & Interview

22 February 2014 6:31 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The world premiere of Trust Me was shown at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, a film written and directed by Clark Gregg, who we all know and love from The Avengers movie and television show.

The ninety minute film follows the story of Howard Holloway (Gregg) as a failed child actor turned agent whose strong morals continue to make him unsuccessful in life, all until he meets teen actress Lydia (played by Saxon Sharbino), a fourteen year old talented actress whose alcoholic father is a major setback in her life. Howard promises himself that he won’t let the chance of a lifetime to represent Lydia slip away in this captivating black comedy about a generally ruthless business.

The film stars not only Gregg and Sharbino but also Amanda Peet, Felicity Huffman, Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Molly Shannon and Paul Sparks and was produced by Keith Kjarval, Aaron Gilbert, Mary Vernieu and many more. »

Worst Dressed Stars at the 2014 SAG Awards: Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Alfre Woodard and More

18 January 2014 6:56 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Oh, say it isn't so! While we absolutely loved countless gorgeous gowns seen on our favorite celebs tonight at the 2014 SAG Awards, there were a few major misses on the red carpet, too. When it came to rounding up the worst dressed celebs on the night, we were sadly disappointed to see a number of talented actors among the bunch. Cate Blanchett can usually do no wrong in our eyes, but in the case of her pale pink Givenchy gown, we had to avert our eyes from the unflattering design.  The oversized ruffle detail added unnecessary volume to her statuesque figure, and the sparkly sequined trim felt much too juvenile for the elegant actress. Amanda Peet also stepped out in a curious »

Sarah Paulson and Amanda Peet Buddy Up in Piles of Ruffles and Flowers at 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards

18 January 2014 4:48 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jack & Jill reunion alert! Sarah Paulson and Amanda Peet have come a long way since their CW sitcom days, but the longtime pals still gave off a hipster-Girls, vintage-and-thrift-shop-lovin' vibe tonight on the red carpet at the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Paulson was wearing a white, ruffly dress with a petticoat-reminiscent full skirt, a striking contrast to Peet's gothic, long-sleeve, intricately embroidered gown with mesh cut-outs. (Maybe she should have switched with Paulson, a star of American Horror Story: Coven.) Paulson is in the house tonight in support of nominated costar Jessica Lange, and Peet is of course married to Game of Thrones cocreator David Benioff, whose »
