Transparent's Jeffrey Tambor and Jill Soloway: "We Love Caitlyn Jenner"

18 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The world really has changed in the past year and a half since Transparent first premiered.  When the Amazon series, which tells the story of trans woman Maura Pfefferman (Jeffrey Tambor) as she and her family adjust to her coming out, first debuted, it was the most high-profile exposure trans people had in pop culture.  Now, things are a little different. Not only have laws started (key word: started) to adjust to being more inclusive to all human beings, but the entertainment world has also embraced the trans acceptance movement, as more and more trans people have stepped into the spotlight, including, of course, Caitlyn Jenner. As we watch Maura and her family learn and adapt to her »

'Transparent' Season 2 (Finally) Lands Release Date; Jeffrey Tambor, Jill Soloway Preview a 'Year of Revolution'

20 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"I walked home and said, ‘'That’s all I’ve ever wanted to do as an actor.'" If expectations for "Transparent" Season 2 weren't high enough after its Golden Globe wins earlier this year, as well as its recent boatload of Emmy nominations, Jeffrey Tambor certainly did his part to raise them Monday afternoon. Speaking at Amazon's "Transparent" panel alongside series creator Jill Soloway, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker, Judith Light, Alexandra Billings and Bradley Whitford, Tambor and the rest of his cast heaped praise on not just what's come before, but what people will soon see.

‘Transparent’ Season 2 to Debut This December

20 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Transparent” season two will debut on Amazon December 4.

The premiere date was announced at Monday’s Television Critics’ Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills, when a first look at the second season was shown to the room of journalists, reporters and critics. The teaser of the upcoming episodes showed a wedding, an ultrasound and Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) yelling, “Yas, Queen!”

At TCA, “Transparent’s” cast and creative team sat together on a panel, discussing the global phenomenon that the dramedy has become.

“Over the course of the past year, as it has become this tsunami in the zeitgeist, the most exciting part is the civil rights movement,” creator Jill Soloway said. “Even though we’re making a television show,” she added, “to feel like it’s all for a larger cause is the most exciting part of all of this.”

She continued to tell the story of how the streaming series, »

‘Transparent’s’ Jeffrey Tambor Says ‘We Love Caitlyn’ Jenner

21 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jeffrey Tambor and his “Transparent” character are both happy for Caitlyn Jenner. “I think Maura loves a party,” Tambor said Monday at the TCA summer press tour when asked how his character, Maura, would react to Caitlyn Jenner’s public transition. “I would have to ask my writer there,” he added, indicating series creator Jill Soloway, to his right. “I think Maura would be very empathetic or empathic to that. Unlike me, I’m a little shy, I think Maura would welcome people in her closet.” Also Read: Amazon Renews 'Transparent' for Season 3 Tambor added his own support, »

Patricia Richardson Blasts Ken Howard in SAG-aftra Election Campaign

30 July 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Richardson has taken off the gloves in her challenge to Ken Howard for the presidency of SAG-aftra.

The “Home Improvement” star, in an email sent Thursday to the union’s 160,000 members, accused Howard and his Unite for Strength allies of poor performance in recent contract negotiations, spending on “lavish” offices and cloaking union operations in secret. Although the tone of the missive was cordial and did not name Howard — opting instead to attack “current leadership” — the email carried a long list of accusations of incompetence.

Richardson, who is heading the self-styled progressives on the Membership First slate, took a cordial tone in the message and said she would not make “wholesale changes” to committee chairs and members just because of party differences.

“We need the expertise of everyone we have,” she said. “However, we do feel the current leadership has been unable to deliver true gains.”

“Negotiations Are Underway” For Arrested Development Season 5

28 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Those crazy Bluths aren’t finished quite yet. Fans of the Fox cult comedy Arrested Development were over the moon when Netflix resuscitated the long-since-canceled series for a fourth season, despite the final product ending up as a slightly uneven, much less hilarious go-round than the first three seasons. Luckily, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos remains committed to giving creator Mitchell Hurwitz another chance to get the formula right.

At the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour, Sarandos spoke at length about Netflix’s upcoming slate, revealing that BoJack Horseman would be coming back – and that Lilyhammer would not – in addition to a slew of upcoming originals. And when asked about the current status of a fifth season of Arrested Development, he seemed cautiously optimistic:

“We are plugging along… It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, »

Netflix hungry for more 'Arrested Development'

28 July 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix just can't get enough of the Bluths. Maybe. While "Arrested Development" producer Brian Grazer recently indicated that the streaming service is full steam ahead on a fifth season of the comedy, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos seems a little more reticent -- though optimistic. At today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Sarandos said that Netflix is in "negotiations" now to bring the show back. “We are plugging along,” Sarandos said. “It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys, both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, but also because the show is owned by Fox… It is our intent to have a new season of 'Arrested Development.' All the negotiations are underway.” The fourth season was plagued by complex scheduling problems due to the stars' hectic professional lives, so similar complications may be slowing the train a bit. »

Review: Mel Brooks' "Life Stinks" (1991) Blu-ray Special Edition From Kino Lorber Studio Classics

24 July 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

One of Mel Brooks' least-discussed films, the 1991 comedy "Life Stinks", is also one of his most accomplished works. The film didn't click with Brooks's usual audience at the time, perhaps because the film is laced with social commentary. Brooks obviously ignored the old Hollywood advice to "Leave the messages to Western Union". Nonetheless, it's precisely because of this departure from his usual productions that gives "Life Stinks" a certain poignancy that isn't found in his earlier works. Granted, Brooks always included some sentiment in his films (even Zero Mostel's Max Byalystock in "The Producers" is con man with some admirable traits.) However, "Life Stinks" makes a  plea for compassion toward society's most vulnerable people, even as it concentrates on the primary purpose of any Brooks film: to make the audience laugh.  

The movie opens with a very amusing scene in which we are introduced to the central character, »

16 Things on TV I Can't Be Bothered to Care About

24 July 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I write about TV for a living, I watch a ton of TV, and I read a lot of news about TV, including a number of much-hyped stories that seem unavoidable all over the Internet. Yet even I can't bring myself to care about some of them. For instance:

1. The Taylor Swift/Nicki Minaj/Katy Perry MTV Vma Feud. Two years, five years, 10 years from now, no one else will care either, so let's stop caring now.

2. The VMAs themselves. The one day a year MTV pretends it still cares about music videos. Again, a year from now, will you remember who won any of these prizes?

3. The Jon-Snow-Is-Alive rumors. Either he is or isn't, but I'd rather just find out when I watch "Game of Thrones" next season and not endure nine months of speculation.

4. Wealthy White Senior Angeleno Dads Who Become Women. Jeffrey Tambor deserved an Emmy nod for "Transparent, »

22 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Richardson’s challenge to SAG-aftra president Ken Howard has attracted endorsements from Elliot Gould, Valerie Harper, Ed Harris, Robert Hays, Amy Madigan, Ken McCord, Nick Nolte, Martin Sheen and Nancy Sinatra.

About 140,000 ballots went out this week to the SAG-aftra membership, with results due to be tabulated on Aug. 20. Richardson, best known as Tim Allen’s co-star on “Home Improvement,” announced her candidacy on June 25 as head of the self-styled progressive Membership First slate.

Howard won elections in 2009 and 2011 for the SAG presidency and then won the post in 2013 against Esai Morales in the first election for the merged SAG-aftra, running each time as the head of the moderate Unite for Strength slate. He announced June 1 that he would seek re-election with Jenny O’Hara as his running mate for secretary-treasurer.

Howard’s current endorsement list includes Alec Baldwin, Lewis Black, Bryan Cranston, Sally Field, Tom Hanks, William H. Macy, »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Comedy Series

21 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Many were worried before the nominations came out that Amazon didn't have a strong enough presence to get its breakout hit "Transparent" the attention it deserves. Now that Jill Soloway's dramedy has hauled in a hefty number of nods, the concern shifts to whether or not it can win. If it's a favorite anywhere, it's here. This marks the seventh Emmys nomination for Jeffrey Tambor, and his zero-for-six record should only improve his odds at taking home the trophy this year.  Read More: How Matt LeBlanc & 'Episodes' Got Us One More Season of 'Friends' Of course, he's not alone in the category when it comes to lacking wins. Matt LeBlanc is also zero for six at the Emmys, despite repeat nominations for "Friends" and "Episodes." Don Cheadle is zero for seven, including three straight losses for "House of Lies." William H.

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

21 July 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Nostalgia is a very powerful weapon, but it goes both ways. Longing for the past can cover up the sins of the present, especially when it comes to television. Past nominees like "Louie," "Modern Family," "Parks and Recreation" and even "Veep" have been around long enough for voters to establish a permanent impression of the show, rather than an accurate judgement of the current season. That could work for or against any one of these institutions, as shows that maybe haven't had their best season yet — "Modern Family," "Parks and Recreation" — could benefit from years of respect to win even in an off year. Meanwhile, shows like "Veep" and "Louie," which only continue to improve, may be seen more as future candidates than present ones; meaning voters may want to put off crowning them until they've peaked.

'Hellboy 3' May Happen If 'Pacific Rim 2' Is a Big Hit

19 July 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the Hellboy sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army came out in 2008, fans have been impatiently awaiting any sort of formal announcement on Hellboy 3, which director Guillermo del Toro and star Ron Perlman have been trying to get off the ground. We haven't heard any updates on the long-gestating sequel since last October, when Hellboy sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army star Jeffrey Tambor claimed that Hellboy 3 may still be happening. Of course, we haven't heard anything about the project since, but director Guillermo del Toro offered an update to The Daily Beast, stating that the sequel will cost $120 million, which most studios aren't eager to hand out.

"The hard fact is that the movie's going to need about $120 million and there's nobody knocking down our doors to give it to us. It's a little beyond Kickstarter. It would be great to complete the trilogy. But in »

Spotlight on... Transgender TV

19 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Trans issues abound in Orange Is the New Black, Caitlyn Jenner’s reality TV series and the BBC‘s new sitcom, Boy Meets Girl

Is transgender culture having a moment?

More than a moment, most likely. Raised social awareness of trans issues is taking immovable effect on the media landscape, and nowhere is that more apparent than on our television menus.

What should I be watching?

Three seasons in, Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black remains a vital examination of female identity across cis and trans lines — and made Laverne Cox the first trans performer to land an Emmy nomination. Trans issues took centre stage in Amazon’s Golden Globe-winning Transparent last year, a funny, compassionate study of a Los Angeles family adjusting to the late-in-life transition of Jeffrey Tambor’s paterfamilias.

Hey, Jim Parsons & Julianna Margulies: Look who else got snubbed by Emmys after winning

17 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

We thought four-time winner Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") was a lock to defend his Comedy Actor crown and had predicted he would be in a tight two-way race with Jeffrey Tambor ("Transparent") to win a record fifth trophy. Likewise, we forecast that last year's Drama Actress winner Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") would be back in the hunt this year. Instead, both were snubbed by the Emmys.  We shouldn't have been that surprised about Margulies going Mia, given that she had been dropped in 2013 as well. That came two years after she first won for this role and happened despite Emmy voters making room for a seventh nominee.  How often does a reigning champ like Parsons or Margulies not get invited back the following year? One of our forum posters, Tavish, has compiled the fascinating stats and ignited a fiery forum debate, which you can join Here. -Break- »
