International Star You Should Know: Khaled Nabaway

1 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Career Breakthrough

Actor Khaled Nabawy’s starring turn in the 1994 film “The Emigrant,” the Egyptian equivalent of the biblical tale of Joseph, from auteur Youssef Chahine, put Nabawy on a larger stage, and has made him one of Egypt’s best-known actors, landing him roles in Hollywood pics such as Ridley Scott’s “Kingdom of Heaven” (2005) and Doug Liman’s “Fair Game” (2010).

Playing For Peace

The 47-year-old Nabawy looks nothing like the nation’s late president, Anwar Sadat, but that didn’t stop him from drawing glowing reviews earlier this year for “Camp David,” at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., opposite Richard Thomas and Ron Rifkin.  Nabawy says he was surprised he was chosen for the role, but welcomed the challenge “Everyone has his own secret” of getting into character, he says. “I believe in studying — and listening.”

The Americans: Season Two Ratings

31 March 2014 12:57 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last year, The Americans attracted a lot of attention for FX but the ratings declined over the course of the season. Will the numbers improve in year two or will they continue to fall? Will this series be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

Taking place in the 1980s, The Americans revolves around the lives and work of Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys), two Soviet Kgb officers who are posing as an American married couple in the suburbs of Washington DC. Others in the cast include Richard Thomas, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Annet Mahendru, Maximiliano Hernández, Alison Wright, Susan Misner, and Noah Emmerich.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available. »

'The Americans,' A to Z

24 February 2014 7:28 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Last winter, the world met Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, a "typical" white-bread married couple living in suburban Washington, D.C., circa 1981. Philip (Matthew Rhys) plays racquetball and runs a local travel agency, while fresh-faced Elizabeth (Keri Russell) sports a wardrobe straight out of Blair Warner's closet and spends her free time baking brownies for the new neighbors. Philip and Elizabeth are so good at masking their true identities that even their American-born children have no clue Mom and Dad are really highly trained Kgb agents spying on their adopted homeland. »

Actor best known for playing John Walton Sr in the Us television family drama The Waltons

Ralph Waite, who played John Walton Sr. on The Waltons for nine seasons, died Thursday at age 85. While he’s best known for his Emmy-nominated role as the patriarch on the long-running 1970s CBS drama, Waite has had recent recurring roles on NCIS, Bones, and Days of Our Lives.
