Jake Gyllenhaal Cried When Parents Refused Him ‘Mighty Ducks’ Role

25 July 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Every actor knows the struggle of losing a part — but for teenaged Jake Gyllenhaal, losing out on Disney’s “The Mighty Ducks” was too much to bear. The “Southpaw” star spoke with Howard Stern this week ahead of the boxing movie’s release, and revealed that his showbiz-centric family forbade him from taking the role in the beloved 1992 hockey film starring Emilio Estevez and Joshua Jackson. “I definitely remember crying on the kitchen counter,” Gyllenhaal told Stern. “I was like, ‘You guys are crazy.'” Also Read: Maggie Gyllenhaal on Hollywood Ageism: I Was Told 37 Is 'Too Old' for a 55-Year-Old Love. »

The Affair Season 2 Teaser Trailer Asks Tough Questions

14 July 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Showtime’s emotionally raw series The Affair entered the TV landscape last year with an interesting premise (episodes split between a man and a woman’s vastly different perspectives on the same events), and found a lot of truth in its portrayal of the devastation of infidelity. The time spent on its murder plot, however -- which I forgot was a part of the show most weeks -- was less successful. [caption id="attachment_368145" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Showtime[/caption] For the uninitiated, Season 1 essentially dealt with two marriages that fell apart and reformed. Noah (Dominic West) and Helen (Maura Tierney) and their kids took a vacation in Montauk, where Noah happened to meet Alison (Ruth Wilson), who was struggling in her marriage to Cole (Joshua Jackson) after the loss of their son. The two formed a strong and immediate connection, and then struggled through trying to keep away from each other while also being unshakable drawn together. »

Showtime’s The Affair gets a new trailer for season 2

14 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Showtime has debuted a brand new look at the second season of the hit drama The Affair, which we have for you below…

The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire), Ruth Wilson (Luther), Maura Tierney (E.R.) and Joshua Jackson (Dawson’s Creek), with season two exploring “the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together.”

In a change to the first season, the second will see the story told from four perspectives rather than the original two, which will reveal “four distinct truths.”

Wilson plays Alison, a young woman attempting to move on from tragedy and build a lasting relationship while contending with the judgment of others and her own self-doubt. Her lover Noah (West) is a burgeoning writer trying to balance the temptations of success, the family he left behind, and the woman he loves. Noah’s »

Showtime releases the first trailer for the second season of ‘The Affair’

14 July 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Among one of the more acclaimed new shows last season was the Showtime relationship drama The Affair. Created by the In Treatment team of Hagai Levi and Sarah Treem, the series’ first season went on to win a Golden Globe for best Drama, with lead actress Ruth Wilson taking home another award on the same night for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television series.

The show was soon renewed for a second season, which is now poised to return in the fall, with a major change. While the structure of the first season meant that the story of the unfolding events was told from two perspectives, the new season will expand the viewpoints to tell the story from four different perspectives, adding in Helen and Cole’s viewpoints to the series. Ruth Wilson is poised to return once again, joined by Dominic West, Maura Tierney, and Joshua Jackson, »

'The Affair' Season 2 Trailer Is Double the Sexy Trouble

14 July 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How did we get here

We took the slow way

Do you love me

What am I supposed to say

Those haunting, heart-tugging lyrics from the song "Walls" by the band Stars plays over the new trailer for Showtime's Golden Globe-winning "The Affair." The exchange between the male and female singer captures the mood of the teaser, which shows us that Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) continue their affair as their respective marriages crumble.

Watch the trailer.

This season will double down on the drama, literally, as the show expands from two points of view to four. We'll see more from Noah's ex Helen (Maura Tierney) and Alison's ex Cole (Joshua Jackson).

As Noah and Alison navigate their relationship, they also have to contend with the police's ongoing investigation of Scott Lockhart's death. Noah claims he's innocent, but if he is, who did kill Scott?

"The Affair" season 2 premieres this fall. »

The Affair Season-Two Trailer: Even More Rashomontauk!

13 July 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The dual perspective structure of the first season of The Affair is going to get even more fractured. In the first season we toggled between Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Noah's (Dominic West) points of view as they carried on with their sultry affair. But surely their partners, Cole (Joshua Jackson) and Helen (Maura Tierney), have something to say about that. After all, there are four sides to every story. To further this point, the poster: »

Showtime’s ‘The Affair’ Teases More Stories, Sorrow and Sex in Season 2 Trailer

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

Things aren’t going happily ever after for Noah Solloway and Alison Bailey in season two of “The Affair.”

The teaser for the second year of the Showtime drama was released Monday and seems to imply that the two leads, played by Dominic West and Ruth Wilson, are still be traumatized by season one’s arresting cliffhanger (Spoiler the arrest of Noah on suspicion of killing his daughter’s much older paramour).

But they’re not the only ones dealing with the fallout. While last year chronicled the narrative through the eyes of Noah and Alison, this season will add in the impact of their choices as seen from the perspective of Noah and Alison’s scorned spouses, Helen (Maura Tierney) and Cole (Joshua Jackson), including the damage the breakup had on Helen and Noah’s children.

And then there’s still the matter of who actually committed that murder. »

'The Affair' season 2 trailer promises 'more than two sides to every story'

13 July 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though "The Affair" between Dominic West and Ruth Wilson's characters was the title subject of Showtime's newest drama series, the show was often at its most vibrant last fall when it was focusing on the spouses (played by Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson) and other family members whose lives were being irrevocably altered by it. So it's exciting to learn that season 2 — debuting this fall — will, according to Showtime, "be told separately from four different perspectives, revealing four distinct truths."  I had some issues with "The Affair" by the end of season 1, but I'll absolutely be watching in the fall, and look forward to seeing how Helen and Cole see what's going on with their soon to be ex-spouses. Here's the season 2 trailer and poster: »

True love conquers all in first teaser for season 2 of The Affair

30 June 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its return in the fall, Showtime has debuted the first teaser trailer for season two of its critically acclaimed, Golden Globe-winning drama The Affair, starring Ruth Wilson, Dominic West, Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson. Take a look here…

At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and novelist who is happily married, but resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law. Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of a tragedy. Set in Montauk at the end of Long Island, the provocative drama unfolds separately from both the male and female perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.

Actors Known For Leading Roles Make Waves in Supporting Parts

9 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jon Voight agreed to take the role of Mickey on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” he was enthusiastic about being a part of a capable ensemble and didn’t give any thought to where his name might land in the credits.

“I’m a real character actor. I like stutters and limps,” says Voight, who built a career on playing leading men in films like 1969’s “Midnight Cowboy” and 1978’s “Coming Home,” for which he won an Oscar. “Every role is a character, and some of the characters are enjoyable to me because they’re so crazy. So Mickey’s perfect. I was fortunate to meet with him at this juncture.”

While some supporting actors, like “Parks and Recreation’s” Chris Pratt, enjoy their upgrade to leading man status, it’s even more common the other way around.

Voight is just one of the accomplished actors better known for playing »
