The Game of Thrones Cast Lets Loose in California

24 March 2015 3:45 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The Game of Thrones cast gathered in San Francisco on Monday for the season five premiere, huddling together to pose for adorable pictures at the afterparty. While it's always fun to see the Game of Thrones cast out of costume, it's especially exciting when the cast members link up in unexpected pairings, and Monday's event brought a must-see snap of Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke. Along with the cast, author George R. R. Martin was at the screening, and there was a cameo from comedian Dave Chappelle. Actress Amanda Peet also stepped out for the event to support her husband, David Benioff, one of the show's cocreators. Before the screening, David hit the stage with cocreator D.B. Weiss to introduce the episode, taking the opportunity to joke about where everyone would be if the show hadn't been successful. Check out all the best pictures from the San Francisco premiere, then »

Alyssa Milano Shares Another Sweet Breastfeeding Photo

9 March 2015 4:23 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Alyssa Milano is a multi-tasking mom.

The 42-year-old former Charmed star shared an Instagram image of her in the makeup chair, breastfeeding her 6-month-old daughter, Elizabella. She wrote: "Make-up, hair in rollers, breastfeeding and being prepped by our producer for #TheTalk."

Video: Amanda Peet Shares Her Unusual Breastfeeding Routine

The mother-of-two became an advocate for breastfeeding after the first pics she posted in October of her nursing her baby caused a bit of controversy as to whether it was appropriate for her to share such an image on Instagram. Comparing her breastfeeding photo to that of Kim Kardashian's nude Paper magazine spread, Milano tweeted this past November: "Wait! I don't get it. No disrespect to Kim but... people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?"

Togetherness, Ep. 1.08, “Not So Together”: Planes, pain, and automobiles

8 March 2015 9:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Togetherness, Season 1, Episode 8, “Not So Together”

Written by Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass

Directed by Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass

Airs at 9:30 Pm (Et) on Sunday on HBO

The decisions Togetherness makes in its season finale are poignant and borderline tragic not just because of what they mean for these characters’ futures, but because the entire season has been leading up to some manifestation of these confrontations. The slow sense of foreboding that has surrounded Michelle and Brett’s marriage or Alex and Tina’s friendship allows the audience to marinate in the anticipation of a catastrophe, making the end points of each of the four in “Not So Together” much more gut wrenching than if they were to arrive completely out of left field.

The finale begins with Tina, Alex, Michelle, and Brett enjoying one last meal together before Tina moves in with Larry and breaks up the dysfunctional foursome. »

Togetherness’s Amanda Peet on Larry vs. Alex and Trying to Get on Game of Thrones

8 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

HBO’s Togetherness ends its first season tonight, wrapping up eight episodes of sexual, marital, and career tension. But don’t expect neat resolution: The dramedy, created by mumblecore kings Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, and Steve Zissis, hinges on the idea that intelligence, attractiveness, and ambition might not be enough to elevate the torture of daily existence. Amanda Peet plays Tina, who, after getting dumped, moves in with her unhappily married sister Michelle Pierson (Melanie Lynskey) and brother-in-law Brett Pierson (Mark Duplass) and their kids. Rounding out this 40-ish quartet of discontent is Alex Pappas (Steve Zissis), a not-quite-working actor who’s been evicted from his apartment. Tina becomes Alex’s career coach, trainer, and friend with no benefits. But of course it’s complicated. In the last few episodes, she’s started seeing a rich TV producer, Larry (Peter Gallagher), cock-blocked Alex, and slapped him when he finally kissed her. »

Togetherness, Ep. 1.07, “Party Time”: A horse is a horse – divorce, divorce?

1 March 2015 10:25 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Togetherness, Season 1, Episode 7, “Party Time”

Written by Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass

Directed by Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass

Airs at 9:30 Pm (Et) on Sunday on HBO

“Party Time” continues the relationship trends that were established in the last episode, with Brett and Michelle slowly growing in different directions and Tina and Alex continuing to pettily feud as if they are small children. Everything revolves around a set of two “parties,” one far more traditional than the other. Michelle and Brett’s relationship finally caves in from its fractures despite Michelle attempting to understand where Brett is at emotionally and trying to solve what ails them. Meanwhile, Tina and Alex’s interactions start out ice-cold, but due to Tina’s struggles with her business, eventually thaw to an acceptable level again, even if they don’t find themselves back on perfectly friendly terms. The most interesting part is that »

'Togetherness': The life comedic with Steve Zissis

9 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the most part, the excellence of HBO’s “Togetherness” isn’t surprising. Co-creators Mark and Jay Duplass have a long track record with films they either wrote and directed themselves or supported in some way, Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet have lots of fine performances on their resumes, and even Mark Duplass himself has turned out to be an interesting and versatile actor as his career has evolved. The one unknown is the man who is in many ways the reason the show exists: co-star and co-creator Steve Zissis, a longtime friend and collaborator of the brothers Duplass who hasn’t had many prominent roles outside of their films. As Alex, a talented but underemployed actor crashing on his best friend’s couch, Zissis gets to be funny, charming, and at times heartbreaking over the course of this eight-episode first season. (Four episodes have aired so far; HBO recently ordered a second season. »

Sleeping with Other People | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

Other People’s Mousetraps: Headland Heads to Romcom

One of the most acerbically hilarious new voices in the American indie world is writer/director Leslye Headland, whose dark hearted 2012 directorial debut Bachelorette was a jagged counterpoint to the unoffending female comedy fantasies, something like Bridesmaids but more uneasily wicked. After writing 2014’s remake of About Last Night, she’s back with her sophomore effort, Sleeping with Other People, a romcom that borrows a bit heavily from When Harry Met Sally. At times funny and sincere in its depiction of modern heterosexual romantic entanglements, Headland’s latest also becomes a bit too self-aware of its own conventions, and instead of reinventing them, sadly becomes a willing victim to its own fantastic monstrousness. Described playfully by the director as a ‘love grenade’ at the film’s premiere, Headland may very well launch bombs at formulaic interpretations of love, sex, and the whole damn thing, »

One of the most talked about makeup looks of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards was Taylor Schilling's classic yet modern adaptation of Grace Kelly.

Title: Sleeping with Other People Director: Leslye Headland Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas, Andrea Savage, Natasha Lyonne Can men and women ever be just friends?

In Sleeping with Other People, two people meet one night in college and lose their virginities to each other, and then are not reunited for twelve years.

Jason Mantzoukas: Banned from getting naked in 'Sleeping With Other People'

27 January 2015 9:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City, Utah -- Jason Mantzoukas co-starred in Sundance pic "Sleeping With Other People" with comedians and other comedic actors including improv partner Jason Sudeikis, "Community's" Alison Brie, "Parks & Recreation" cohort Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, and Andrea Savage. From the sound of it, the work wasn't all that... worky. The sex/relationship comedy is about "figuring it out, and f*cking it up," Mantzoukas said from the premiere's red carpet at Sundance. But he was floored by his scenes with Savage -- who plays his wife in the film -- and, overall, it was a low-maintenance cast. However, there was a stipulation for Mantzoukas in this romp. "I was not naked. They wouldn't let me." Cue the sad trombones. Watch our interview above, on why he thinks "Parks & Rec" is one of the "most delightful" shows to work on, how "The League" doesn't turn to shambles, what Billy Eichner »
