Transgender Hollywood: Will Bruce Jenner Change the Industry?

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the first breakthrough transgender star in Hollywood, Laverne Cox has certainly mixed it up with the A-list. The “Orange Is the New Black” actress recently attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where she rubbed shoulders with the president (“Oh God — he knows who I am!”). She fan-girled out for Viola Davis at the SAG Awards, mingled with Jon Hamm at an Emmys after-party, and received a Christmas card from Beyonce. But nothing compared with the time she ambushed her idol at an Essence magazine luncheon.

“This is the hand that Oprah touched,” Cox says, extending her wrist. “I didn’t want to wash it.”

In June, Cox will slip back into the unglamorous outfit that opened these doors — the drab beige prison uniform from Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” which enters its third season. It’s one of the many priorities on the 30-year-old actress’s packed schedule. »

The 15 Best Lgbt Characters On Television: Maura Pfefferman on 'Transparent'

30 April 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Let's just get this out of the way first: We realize that after a series of characters on this list where an out Lgbt actor plays them, this is not the case for our #1 pick: "Transparent"'s Maura Pfefferman, played by Jeffrey Tambor in a glorious, Golden Globe (and hopefully Emmy soon enough) winning role. But while we are absolute advocates of Lgbt actors playing Lgbt characters, the fact that the man behind Maura isn't shouldn't matter. What should matter is that "Transparent" is such a remarkable series that portrays Maura's story with writing, directing and acting that is basically unparalleled. Jeffrey Tambor is incredible. Series creator Jill Soloway is incredible. The rest of the cast (including another member of this list) is incredible. They have collectively offered us perhaps the most realized trans character we've ever seen on television (or the internet, technically, but what do we even say »

Bruce Jenner Interview Highlights Transgender TV Series Boom

24 April 2015 8:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bruce Jenner’s disclosure in a heavily promoted ABC News interview that he is in the midst of transitioning to a female gender identity comes at a time when TV has heightened interest in transgender life stories.

ABC Family took advantage of the natural tie-in to promote its upcoming docu series “Becoming Us” during Friday’s two-hour “20/20″ special featuring Diane Sawyer’s interview with Jenner, the Olympian and former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star.

“Becoming Us” revolves around a teenage boy grappling with his father’s transition to a woman. The series premieres June 8 and hails from Ryan Seacrest Prods.

The Discovery Life channel earlier this month launched the unscripted series “New Girls on the Block.” The series focuses on six women in Kansas City, Mo., who are beginning to live openly as transgender. Conveyor Media has produced five hourlong episodes.

Discovery Life’s larger sibling, TLC, is preparing »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

Brian Grazer Claims More Arrested Development Is On The Way

7 April 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Following the return of the Bluth family to our screens with 2013’s Netflix-backed revival of Arrested Development, things have been awfully quiet. There has been mild chatter of the company wanting more, but nothing concrete has emerged about a new batch of episodes of the spin-off movie that the fourth series was initially supposed to set up. Now producer Brian Grazer has spoken on Grantland’s B.S. Report to suggest more is headed our way at last. “I love Arrested Development, but it was never a huge thing,” Grazer says. “But people are loyal to it, and we’re going to do another 17 episodes. So stay tuned for Arrested Development.” And that’s all he says. No dates, no comment from creator Mitch Hurwitz or any of the cast, nada. Not even a loose seal. Still, Grazer has often been a big cheerleader for more from the show, talking about »

'Tangled' & 'Groundhog Day' Musicals Planned for the Stage

3 April 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two wildly different movies will be getting stage musical adaptations in the near future, with a Broadway version of the 1993 comedy classic Groundhog Day being developed, while Disney Parks is making a Tangled musical for their Disney Cruise Lines. The Groundhog Day musical is being developed by composer-lyricist Tim Minchin, director Matthew Warchus, choreographer Peter Darling and set and costume designer Rob Howell, the team behind the current Broadway adaptation of the 1996 movie Matilda. They will all collaborate on the play's book with Danny Rubin, who came up with the original Groundhog Day story and co-wrote the screenplay with director Harold Ramis.

Scott Rudin will produce the play with Andre Ptaszysnki's Whistle Pig Productions and Columbia Stage Live. The original movie centered on a weatherman (Bill Murray) who is assigned to cover the Groundhog Day ceremony in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where he gets caught in a time loop and is »

When Orange Is the New Black star Lea DeLaria made an appearance at a New York event Thursday night, she was dramatically thinner than when we last saw her in season 2 of the Netflix show. And the brash, fun-loving comic revealed the key to her weight loss while holding on to her fierce sense of humor. "What you need to do is, first contract diabetes. Two, take the medication that they give you for diabetes," she told People at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center's annual dinner at Cipriani Wall Street, which honored award-winning Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor and »

Jack Black's D-Train Trailer Rides Online

1 April 2015 1:33 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The presence of Jack Black and the prominence of the letter D might, at a casual glance, lead to you to expect a reteaming with Kyle Gass and a follow-up to The Pick Of Destiny. The D-Train is about a reunion of the school variety, however, with Black tenaciously trying to secure James Marsden's involvement. Here's the new trailer for the feel-bad comedy.Yes Man writers Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel have stepped up to direct this one, which finds Black chairing the committee of a middle American high school's reunion. Desperate for the acceptance and acclaim he never got in his yoot, our hero sees his chance to shine by convincing the guy voted most popular (Marsden) to attend.Trouble is, the one-time hotshot is now a failed actor primarily working in adverts who has no real desire to parade around his old school. So Black’s »

Take a ride on ‘The D Train’ and watch Sundance trailer starring Jack Black

31 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We fell in love with the raunchy R-rated romp The D-Train at this year’s Sundance. Starring Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn, Jeffrey Tambor, and Mike White, the film features Black as the self-appointed head to his high school’s alumni association bent on getting the former most popular kid in school (Marsden) to attend their high school reunion so that the event can be a success.

J.R. Kinnard said this about The D-Train in his Sundance review:

The D Train starts as a predictable buddy-comedy, only to swerve into a completely unexpected direction.  It’s a movie that might have lived comfortably in the ‘80s, alongside other raunchy R-rated comedies that never forgot to bring a little heart.  Jack Black continues to evolve as a comedic actor, learning when to turn on his persona and when to disappear into character.  The writing is sharp, smart, and determined to give us something unpredictable. »
