Here’s What Nicolas Cage Looks Like as Every ‘Game of Thrones’ Character (Photos)

1 July 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ever wondered what “Game of Thrones” would look like if every character were played by Nicolas Cage? Of course not, but Reddit user CarlosDanger100 took the time to Photoshop the actor’s face onto the bodies of 30 different “Game of Thromes” characters, anyway. The results range from hilarious to horrifying. Some of the more convincing photos include the Oscar-winning actor as Stannis Baratheon, Tywin Lannister and perhaps most impressive, Bran Stark.

Emilia Clarke on Game of Thrones’ Violence Against Women: Don’t Take It Too Seriously

26 June 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just as George R.R. Martin and Amanda Peet did before her, Emilia Clarke has waded into the murky rhetorical waters of discussing the violence against women on Game of Thrones in an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio. It's a tricky line to walk — you can't trash the show that employs you, but you also don't want to say anything that makes feminists mad. Let's see how she did!It’s never nice hearing criticism about something that you, and you know everybody else, puts their heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears into. But in the same breath, it's a shocking show, so it's going to invite commentary that everybody is free to have about the show. Solid start, if slightly rambling; you can tell she's trying to get her bearings. Clarke admits that the show is "shocking" but says that everyone is free to have their own opinions. Fair and balanced. »

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are just friends in ‘Sleeping With Other People’ trailer

26 June 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though it’s been described as “When Harry Met Sally for assholes”, the Sundance, R-rated rom-com Sleeping With Other People may be closer to When Harry Met Sally meets Shame.

Director Leslye Headland’s comedy is about two ex-lovers and now platonic friends who remain “just friends” because of their exhaustive sex addictions, fearing that sex might ruin the relationship they have. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are the titular couple who in the film’s first trailer can be seen getting stoned at a children’s birthday party and sleeping around in destructive fashion. Here’s the official synopsis:

Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? After a one-night stand in college, New Yorkers Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet by chance twelve years later and discover they each have the same problem: because of their monogamy-challenged ways, neither can maintain a relationship.

First trailer for Sleeping With Other People

26 June 2015 4:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer has arrived online for writer/director Leslye Headland’s upcoming romantic comedy Sleeping With Other People, which stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? After a one-night stand in college, New Yorkers Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet by chance twelve years later and discover they each have the same problem: because of their monogamy-challenged ways, neither can maintain a relationship. Determined to stay friends despite their mutual attraction, they make a pact to keep it platonic, a deal that proves easier said than done. Fresh, funny, and full of witty insights about modern love, this hilariously heartfelt film “is the rare rom-com that reminds us why we love them so much in the first place” (Time Out New York). Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Mantzoukas co-star. »

Sleeping With Other People Trailer Pairs Alison Brie And Jason Sudeikis As Sex-Addicted Buddies

25 June 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s about time that Community‘s Alison Brie got her big break. I was appalled to see how under-utilized (and despicably objectified) she was in this spring’s Get Hard, but this fall’s Sleeping with Other People should finally introduce cinephiles to her real comic gifts. Pairing the actress with Jason Sudeikis seems like a thoroughly winning prospect, and based on the first trailer for the irreverent pic, romantic-comedy fans might be about to get a much-needed kick in the teeth.

Brie stars as Lainey, a long-time sex addict who reconnects with an old, also sex-addicted friend (Jason Sudeikis) to whom she lost her virginity in college. Determined to break their respective cycles, the two vow to be platonic friends and never sleep together, which only gets trickier when the cynical pair develop unexpected affection for one another.

Watch: First Trailer for Alison Brie-Jason Sudeikis Comedy ‘Sleeping With Other People’

25 June 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis struggle to fight sex addiction in the first trailer for “Sleeping With Other People.”

Brie plays a serial cheater, while Sudeikis is a womanizer in the romantic comedy. The characters first have a fling in college, then rekindle their relationship when they run into each other more than a decade later at a 12-step program for sex addicts.

“The guy I lost my virginity to was at my sex addicts meeting,” Brie admits to a friend.

Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) directs from her own script. IFC bought North American rights to the movie following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Sidney Kimmel and Jessica Elbaum are producing, while Jim Tauber, Carla Hacken and Matt Berenson are exec producing.

Adam Scott, Amanda Peet and Natasha Lyonne also star in the film, which hits theaters on September 11.

Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis are Sleeping with Other People in new trailer

25 June 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis star as relationship phobics in the indie comedy Sleeping with Other People.  The pair play Lainey and Jake, serial cheaters who reconnect twelve years after they last hooked up.  Acknowledging their failure at monogamy, the two make a pact to be just friends, but their increasing attraction to one another throws a wrench into their plans to keep it out of the bedroom.

The comedy was a hit when it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival with comparisons to a modern-day When Harry Met Sally… popping up in the film’s buzz.  A romcom for the Tinder age, the first trailer for Sleeping with Other People shows us that sharp-witted dialogue and some heartfelt humour are in store for the cast which also includes Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Amanda Peet.

The comedy pedigree doesn’t stop with the cast.  Will Ferrell is a producer »

Sleeping With Other People (2015) Movie Trailer: Another Heartfelt Rom-Com?

25 June 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Sleeping With Other People Trailer Has Been Released. Leslye Headland‘s Sleeping With Other People (2015) movie trailer stars Natasha Lyonne, Alison Brie, Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott, and Jason MantzoukasSleeping With Other People‘s plot synopsis: “A good-natured womanizer and a serial cheater form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in.”

I’m pretty shocked that I still fall for these films. I watch most romantic comedies, even those not worthy of watching when you’re bored on an airplane. I suppose its the basic structure of the genre, the familiar plot points, character traits, the somewhat heightened version of reality. Everything seems easier in these films. New York looks cleaner and more romantic than it sometimes does when you’re living here. Everyone looks handsome or beautiful, and life is light. Things are bearable.

So, then, I’m quite sold on this, »

You'll Love Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie's Anti-Romantic Comedy

25 June 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are the stars of Sleeping With Other People, an unconventional romantic comedy from Bachelorette director Leslye Headland. The two play old flames who run into each other after 12 years . . . at a Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous meeting. Acknowledging they both have some pretty series relationship issues, they pledge to stay friends. Obviously, it wouldn't be a romantic comedy if that was the end of the story. Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, and Amanda Peet all costar in the film, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. It's opening in limited release on Aug. 21! »

Jason Sudeikis & Alison Brie in 'Sleeping with Other People' Trailer

25 June 2015 6:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"For the first time, I'm a little bit optimistic you might not become that creepy guy." IFC Films has debuted the first trailer for Sleeping with Other People, a Sundance comedy that was one of our favorites of this festival earlier this year. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as two compulsive cheaters who end up in a relationship, but will it work out from them? This actually looks really good, don't skip it. Sleeping with Other People is the follow-up from Bachelorette filmmaker Leslye Headland, and it seems to be a very big improvement. Adam Scott, Amanda Peet & Natasha Lyonne also star. Ethan wrote in his review from Sundance that it's "one of the most entertaining and honest love stories of the past 10 years." Check it out. Here's the first trailer for Leslye Headland's Sleeping with Other People, direct from IFC's YouTube: Synopsis: Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? »

Sleeping With Other People Trailer: Sudeikis and Brie Are Sex Addicted Pals

25 June 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The first Sleeping with Other People trailer has gone online, and you can already tell it’s hiding the good stuff. The premise revolves around two old friends Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) who have become sex addicts, and decide to rely on each other by keeping their relationship platonic. Their plan becomes more difficult as their affection for each other grows. That’s the sweetness the trailer presents with only a couple hints at the raunchy, abrasive humor director Leslye Headland delivered with her first film, Bachelorette. At Sundance, she described the movie as “When Harry Met Sally with assholes,” and that’s the film I want to see, especially after checking out Adam’s positive review. I don’t mind that that the trailer is burying the dirty jokes; they’ll be even more surprising when I end up checking out the film later this year. »

'Sleeping With Other People' Trailer: Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie Are Just Sex-Addicted Friends

25 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's the age-old question: Can men and women just be friends? In "Sleeping With Other People," the question gets a twist: Can a man and a woman, both addicted to sex, just be friends?

The trailer for the romantic comedy, which debuted at Sundance, shows that the answer is: It's very, very difficult. "Sleeping With Other People" seems to be an updated version of "When Harry Met Sally." As Lainey (Alison Brie) observes of her relationship with Jake (Jason Sudeikis), "We're not a couple, but we act like one."

​Lainey and Jake are old friends who hooked up years ago, and run into each other at a sex addicts meeting. They decide to keep things platonic, even though sparks are flying. Judging by the trailer, the movie looks to be a sweet and funny good time, and Brie and Sudeikis have great chemistry. And the rest of the cast is awesome: Adam Scott, »

Amanda Peet Says Game of Thrones Isn’t Misogynistic, and She Would Know, Since She’s Married to One of Its Showrunners

24 June 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After five seasons of rape, torture, and sexposition, the conversation over misogyny in Game of Thrones reached its peak this past season, with fans like Senator Claire McCaskill threatening to quit watching the show after one particularly brutal scene of sexual assault. Now Amanda Peet, wife of Got producer David Benioff and star of the much-less-violent HBO show Togetherness, is speaking out in Thrones' defense. "I think it’s really misplaced," Peet told The Wrap of the anger towards her husband and his partner, D.B. Weiss. "They write some of the greatest female characters that are on television." Echoing a point made by George R.R. Martin himself, she argued, "It’s a misogynist world ... but we have to experience it without thinking that people are condoning this." Just look around the rest of premium cable, she said, to see how the problem could be much worse: "It’s much more insidious to have middling, »

Amanda Peet Defends ‘Game of Thrones': Backlash Over Misogyny Is ‘Misplaced’

23 June 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Amanda Peet, actress and wife of “Game of Thrones” co-creator David Benioff, is speaking out about the backlash over the HBO series’ fifth season — easily the most controversial in its run because of harrowing rape and public shaming scenes. Peet, also an employee of the cable network on the Duplass Brothers drama “Togetherness,” defended her husband and his partner D.B. Weiss after episodes featured the violent rape of Sophie Turner’s Sansa Stark, and the degrading walk of shame suffered by Lena Headey‘s Cersei Lannister. “I think it’s really misplaced.

How Amanda Peet Braves ‘Togetherness’ Nudity, Desperation and 4 Other Emmy Contender Quickies

22 June 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Every character on HBO’s “Togetherness” has a wonderful blend of rationality and total dysfunction. Chief among the actors tasked with pulling it off is ensemble star Amanda Peet. As the blunt and brassy Tina, who relocates to Los Angeles to crash on the couch of her increasingly unfulfilled sister (Melanie Lynskey) and brother-in-law (Mark Duplass), Peet shines as the single woman of a certain age whose honesty undoes the mumbling suburbans surrounding her. TheWrap caught up with Peet for our Emmy Contender Quickie series, and the actress discussed her return to TV, the joys of playing someone on the »

‘You’re the Worst’ to ‘Transparent': Finding Dark Comedy in the City of Angels

10 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Although fear of production flight is at a fever pitch in Hollywood and shows are clamoring for California filming tax incentives, several new comedies are not only proudly set in L.A., but also embrace everything the city has to offer — stereotypes and all.

Jay Duplass is in a unique position to talk about the topic. One of the stars of L.A.-set “Transparent” (Amazon) he is also, along with his brother Mark and friend Steve Zissis, a co-creator of HBO’s “Togetherness.”

The relationship dramedy, which stars the latter Duplass and Zissis, as well as Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet, explores life in the L.A. neighborhood of Eagle Rock and covers charter schools, family trips to the beach and other things those in that community hold dear.

Jay Duplass, who has lived in Eagle Rock for seven years, says the location made for an ideal backdrop for his series because, »

TV's best supporting actors shared their first Hollywood crushes during The Hollywood Reporter's Supporting Actor Emmy Roundtable. "In the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," Timothy Simons (Veep) explains, "there was a girl who worked in the Foot Clan hideout, and I think she was a featured extra, but she seemed very dangerous." Responses continued on, covering the basics: "Michael J. Fox!" "Ryan Phillippe!" "Matt Damon," Kathryn Hahn (Happyish) said to a confused Amanda Peet (Togetherness).

Duplass Brothers to Control 35 Percent of Stuff You Watch on the Small Screen

The Duplass brothers Mark and Jay are on their way to becoming the most important brothers in entertainment since the Marxes (okay, fine, the Baldwins). In between their acting gigs on highly acclaimed TV shows and movies, HBO has announced a two-season pickup of Animals, an animated series produced by Duplass Brothers Television that premiered at Sundance earlier this year. The show is about the dregs of New York City — the rats, pigeons, and bedbugs — as they wrestle with existential questions. “Jay and I have been excited ... to have our first real experiment land at a place like HBO for two seasons is beyond what we could have imagined,” Mark Duplass said in the understated statement of the year.Animals joins their other HBO show — Togetherness, starring Mark Duplass and Amanda Peet, which also got renewed for a second season earlier this year.
