Peter Facinelli stopped by Chelsea Lately yesterday to promote his show Nurse Jackie and talk quickly turned to a funny story from his and host Chelsea Handler's past. "The last time I saw you, you almost followed me into a bathroom," Handler said to Facinelli. "Yes, well, let's get real," he said, adding, "It was a porta-potty. Nothing's as classy like following a woman into a porta-potty." News: Edie Falco stops by Chelsea Lately "What were you trying to do? Did you think I had drugs or something?" the comedienne asked. "Because I always do. I always do." "We were talking and talking and talking and all of a sudden I turned around »
Only on Saturday Night Live would it be beside the point that Kate McKinnon is the show’s first openly gay woman. Since her debut just over a year ago, she has single-handedly revived the perennial show’s long lineage of searing, spot-on impersonations that rival those of Darryl Hammond, Gilda Radner and Martin Short. Her versions of Shakira, Penelope Cruz, Jodie Foster and Edie Falco don’t just come close; like any good caricature, they actually redefine the way you see the original person.
And yet, McKinnon is used so sparingly it begs putting the question to Lorne Michaels: What the hell are you waiting for? Her talent is bigger and brighter than some of your full-time cast members. She’s your ticket out of the malaise that has beset Season No. 38.
McKinnon’s “I’m Ellen” take on Ellen DeGeneres has earned not only kudos – Vulture called »

Hal Hartley is one of the true originals of modern cinema. A consummate stylist, his work is erudite and eccentric, defiant in its singularity. After making first film The Unbelievable Truth (1989) for just $75,000, Hartley went on to quietly change the face of independent American cinema with his deadpan dialogue, brimming with arch and often philosophical insights on relationships. Over his first few films, Hartley also developed a sophisticated aesthetic to compliment his sharp writing. Over the next few months, Artificial Eye will release The Unbelievable Truth, Simple Men (1992) and Amateur (1994) for the first time on Blu-ray. CineVue's Craig Williams asked Hartley about youth, the Weinsteins and Alan Rudolph.
Hal Hartley: Though I'm not terribly aged, I am older and I have been doing this for a long time so when I »

The city that never sleeps is wonderful in many ways, but it can also be overwhelming. Just ask native New Yorker Edie Falco, who admitted on Thursday's Chelsea Lately she has "a love-hate relationship with Manhattan." "What's the hate part?" Chelsea Handler asked the Nurse Jackie star. "Everything," Falco quipped. "Everything except the love part." "I've been there a long time," she continued. "I know what's what. And the claustrophobia is familiar to me, so that's why I've been there such a long time. But every once in a while I'll see a man lying on the street on top of newspapers eating out of a shoe and I'll think, »
Edie Falco and Chelsea Handler bonded over horror stories from their time in the trenches of the food industry on "Chelsea Lately." Both women had been waitresses at earlier points in their lives, and that's a pretty thankless job much of the time.
One thing they agreed on was that they both absolutely hated that job. Falco said that a customer once tipped her by throwing pennies at her face, though she qualified it by saying that she probably deserved it. She described herself as an "awful, rude and mean" waitress.
"Meanwhile, I still walk by restaurants that are busy and think, well that’s a good lunch crowd! So, if things get really bad, this is a place to apply," Falco said.
She said she can't get those thoughts out of her head, though it's hard to imagine either woman reaching a point in their careers where they have to wait tables again. »

It's Thursday, and you know what that means... it's time for a new episode of Secret Eaters! Also, we've got another Q&A for you.
This week we've gathered such glorious goss on the likes of Fresh Meat and Hannibal that really, you should be worshiping us like Gods. We're talking being fanned with palm leaves and a massage using the finest essential oils. We'll settle for a 'thnx' in the comments though...

Edie Falco is coming clean. Making the publicity rounds to hype the new season of Nurse Jackie, the 49-year-old actress talked to E! News about what's in store for her strong-willed nurse and particularly whether she'll be able to stay off the prescription meds that's helped her get her through her day in the past. "You never can tell. I know she's trying but it's hard," Falco said. "But there's all kinds of exciting stuff in store. Because trying to approach your life without your crutch is an endless array of adventure." On a more personal note, the mother of two also dished about what her young son and daughter have up their sleeve come Mother's Day this »
Edie Falco has the honor of being the only actress to have won a best actress Emmy for both drama and comedy. She nabbed her drama award for her work in "The Sopranos," while the comedy one came for her current, show, "Nurse Jackie." But she told "Conan" that she doesn't understand why she won for comedy.
“I always get in trouble about this, but it’s, I mean, it’s not that funny," she said of the show, before quickly qualifying her statement. "I don’t know, I mean, I think it’s a funny show ... When ... I think comedy, I think about, 'Will & Grace’ and ‘30 Rock.’ It’s a different animal.”
When Falco talked to HitFix about this topic, she said that it's not so much that she doesn't think "Nurse Jackie" is a comedy. She doesn't see herself as a comedienne. "The whole thing is crazily flattering »

Kimmel couldn't believe that the actress who played Carmela Soprano hadn't watched every episode of her first Emmy-winning series. “How is that possible that I’ve seen more ‘Sopranos’ episodes than you have?” he asked incredulously.
Falco used the admission as a chance to plug her current premium cable network. “I don’t have HBO. ... No, I’m kidding ... I work for Showtime now.”
“You’re very loyal to your network,” Jimmy replied.
“Listen, I do what I’m asked,” Falco quipped.
Jokes aside, Falco said she just finds it weird to watch herself performing. But she noted she has seen all of "Nurse Jackie" because she’s more involved in the show as a whole.
Maybe she didn't watch "The Sopranos »

The cover photo of Tom Sizemore's autobiography, "By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There," is a perfect introduction for what's to come.
The 51-year-old actor stands looking up at the camera, instantly recognizable because of his work portraying tough-guy characters in such memorable 1990s films as "Saving Private Ryan," "Heat" and "Natural Born Killers."
His face, though, looks worn, and his eyes are those of a man who's been to hell and back.
And that's exactly what his book details – Sizemore's ascent to the height of cinema, working for the Steven Spielbergs and with the Robert De Niros of the world – and his drug-fueled descent that left him imprisoned and out of options.
"I was a guy who'd come from very little and risen to the top," writes Sizemore, »
When I was reading Peter Biskind’s Down and Dirty Pictures a few years ago, I was literally shaken by Biskind’s observation that “in the ’90s there were three New York-based companies comprised of producers making director-driven indies; Good Machine, Killer Films and Tsg.”
My first thought was “Oh, I helped start the Shooting Gallery” and my second thought was “What did the De Niro character say in “Casino”? ‘We had it all, and we fucked it up big time.”
That moment led me on my path to making a documentary, “Misfire,” about the rise and fall of the Shooting Gallery. It was a time in New York City when indie filmmaking was exploding with such emerging directors as Jim Jarmusch, Hal Hartley and Spike Lee and producers like Ted Hope, James Schamus and Christine Vachon.
At the Shooting Gallery, we contributed our own talents to the revolution in »

Showtime's medical comedy-drama "Nurse Jackie" returned last night to start off its fifth season, making it officially something of a veteran series on the network. The show, created by Evan Dunsky, Liz Brixius and Linda Wallem, continues to follow Edie Falco (who has won an Emmy for her work in the show) as Jackie Peyton, a (now recovering) painkiller-addicted emergency room nurse at a New York hospital. You can check out the full season premiere, "Happy Fucking Birthday," below for one month courtesy of Showtime. Penned by new showrunner Clyde Phillips and directed by Randall Einhorn ("Late Bloomer", the episode takes place on the day before Jackie's birthday. The YouTube link will expire on May 15th -- the new season airs Sundays at 9pm on Showtime. »

(Warning: The following "Nurse Jackie" Season 5 review contains minor plot spoilers and a few general storyline details not revealed in the season premiere. We're not trying to give anything away, but proceed with caution if you're spoiler sensitive.)
After a season in which Showtime's "Nurse Jackie" redefined itself as essential viewing, anything less is going to feel like a disappointment. And while recovering addict Jackie still hasn't relapsed at the beginning of Season 5, her series is taking several steps backwards.
Season 4 started with a bang: Jackie's marriage was in pieces, she voluntarily entered rehab, her best friend Dr. O'Hara (Eve Best) was pregnant and her colleagues were thrown for a loop by All Saints' aggressive and arrogant new administrator Mike Cruz (Bobby Cannavale). The season took off from there, making brilliant use of every member of its ensemble to tell a terrific arc about personal and professional turmoil and »
For most of her TV career, Edie Falco has benefited from continuity. Tom Fontana was the boss on “Oz” the entire time she was there. David Chase ran “The Sopranos” from first minute to last. And for the first four seasons of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” Falco reported to writer/producers Linda Wallem and Liz Brixius. But Wallem and Brixius left after the hospital dramedy’s fourth season, and have been replaced by former “Dexter” showrunner Clyde Phillips.(*) With the fifth season set to debut on Sunday night at 9, I talked with Falco about adjusting to a new boss, where Jackie’s head »

Showtime's Nurse Jackie returns for its fifth season Sunday, marking the Edie Falco starrer's first under new showrunner and Dexter alum Clyde Phillips. After a fourth-season finale that left the fate of three All Saints regulars up in the air, the series returns for a fresh start with Jackie painfully formalizing her divorce from Kevin (Dominic Fumusa), Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) and Eddie (Paul Schulze) back on staff alongside new additions Morris Chestnut and Betty Gilpin. Meanwhile, Jackie will face new obstacles as a mother when her daughters begin to feel the impact of growing up with an

After jogging Nurse Jackie out of its storytelling rut — and guiding its fourth season to what many critics called a creative high point and a real turnaround — showrunners Linda Wallem and Liz Brixius made a sudden exit. When the Showtime series premieres its fifth season this Sunday at 9 p.m., things will have shifted under new boss Clyde Phillips, who previously led Dexter. He says both the network and studio had already been thinking of shaking things up, and for the most part, that’s meant a less heavy, less dreary, more overtly comedic approach to continuing the story of a still-sober but struggling former addict. “We wanted it to be a comedy. A dark comedy. It had really become a very heavy drama for a while there,” Phillips said, bringing to mind Edie Falco’s infamously stunned reaction to winning the 2010 Emmy for Lead Comedy Actress (“I’m not funny! »

Although Showtime vaulted into rarefied air with its Emmy win for “Homeland,” the channel continues to offer a spate of shows that clearly have admirers and boast billboard-worthy stars but amount to utility players, failing to reach cable’s elite tier. Two of those, “Nurse Jackie” and “The Borgias,” return April 14, while “The Big C” has been granted the TV equivalent of a dignified death, with four hourlong episodes to conclude the series. A new showrunner hasn’t changed “Jackie” — worth recommending for Edie Falco and not much else — while “Borgias” proves that even papal intrigue and debauchery can grow tiresome.
So if there’s one worth discussing, it’s “The Big C: hereafter” — not because it works, but because the ways in which these episodes fall short illuminate how a promising premise can go wrong, squandering a provocative idea. Even so, credit Showtime with committing to this limited run, »
