Reese Witherspoon earns her angel wings this weekend, climbing into one of her old pink Elle Woods costumes from Legally Blonde to deliver a special video message to Will, a 4-year-old boy putting up a very tough fight against cancer. A little over a week ago, Reese was forwarded an email from Will's mom Julie. You can read it here:
Legally Blonde is on the hospital TV and Will has been watching it, like four times a day. When he feels good enough to want something, he wants Legos and "The Pink Girl". He finds comfort in it and loves the Pink Lady. So, if anyone knows Reese Witherspoon, and she would be willing to take a picture of herself holding a note that says "TeamWill", or any other shout out that she can dream up, she would give a little four year old boy fighting cancer (and even more »
While many weren't too familiar with Als (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease) before this summer, the hundreds of Ice Bucket Challenge videos helped spread awareness of this degenerative disease. Today, we have the first trailer for You're Not You, which stars Hilary Swank as Kate, a pianist who becomes stricken with Als.
Based on Michelle Wildgen's book, this drama follows Kate and her husband (Josh Duhamel) as they find the most unorthodox caretaker in young college student Bec (Emmy Rossum) as they both change each other's lives. Take a look at the first footage, along with two new photos from director George C. Wolfe's adaptation, co-starring Loretta Devine, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter and Marcia Gay Harden, arriving in theaters and VOD platforms October 10.
A second teaser trailer is out for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," the Steve Carell and Channing Tatum-led drama which looks to be one of the biggest players in the upcoming awards season following the film's sterling reception at Cannes back in May.
The first trailer is out for "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart's directorial debut "Rosewater". The story follows Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal), who was arrested for espionage while covering the Iranian elections in 2009 and held for nearly four months. The film, which opens in November, premiered the other day at the Venice Film Festival to respectable but not gushing reviews.
Next comes the trailer for the Hugh Grant-led rom-com "The Rewrite". Grant stars as a former Oscar-winning screenplay writer long past his glory days who takes on a college teaching job. Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons star.
Finally there's »

The trailer for director George C. Wolfe’s new film You’re Not You has some incredible timing on its side. Thanks to the viral phenomenon of those ubiquitous ice bucket challenge videos, I think it’s safe to say that awareness for Als is at an all-time high. The film stars Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who is stricken with the disease and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. Going off the trailer, the film looks well made if not a little conventional. It’s hard for me to fault these kinds of movies for that though, we all need to find the uplifting elements in any tragic scenario I suppose. Hit the jump for the You’re Not You trailer. The film also stars Josh Duhamel, Marcia Gay Harden, Jason Ritter, Ali Larter, and Loretta Devina and opens in theaters and On Demand on October 10th. »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Masters of Sex, True Blood, Teen Wolf and Chasing Life!
1 | From The Killing Episode 3: Wouldn’t Linden have seen Skinner’s wife’s car outside the cabin, when she went to lob the cell phone into the lake?
2 | Between that scene in Outlander (above photo) and that scene in Masters of Sex, wasn’t it a great week to be a female TV character?

Martin Odum has some issues. He hasn’t seen his son in months; he’s divorced; his one-time hook-up looks like she’s going to remain a one-time hook-up. And he might not even be Martin Odum.
A “legend,” as a title credit in TNT’s Legends so helpfully informs us, is a fabricated identity within U.S. undercover government work. Martin Odum, played by Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean, has a few of these legends, but he is struggling to separate himself from these false identities and starting to question who he really is. That’s an intriguing premise, »

Martin Odum doesn’t just go undercover in TNT’s Legends, which premiered Wednesday night – he becomes his covers, burying himself in the fabricated backstories and character quirks that come with the job.
However when Odum (played by Game of Thrones‘ Sean Bean) returns home after a months-long deep-cover assignment, a mysterious stranger tells him that what he presumes is his true identity is just an elaborate “legend” as well. Unfortunately, Odum can’t dispel that accusation since he’s beginning to unconsciously slip in and out of the many personae he’s created over the years.
But that’s »
TNT‘s new drama, Legends, doesn’t play around with the long arc of the series, which involves Sean Bean‘s Martin Odum losing touch with the reality of his life as an FBI deep cover operative (see the promo below, which would lead you to believe that this is the entire focus of the show), but as we get through the first few episodes, this plot is largely sideline material.
The show kicks off with Martin trying to expose the leader of a terrorist group. He’s been living the life of a member of the “militia” group for six months, and just as he’s about to get somewhere, another law enforcement group moves in on the camp. This takes Martin out of the game, which means he can visit his ex-wife and son, and get back to reality. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t want to sit still, »

The new TNT series Legends, based on the book by master spy novelist Robert Littell, follows Martin Odum (Sean Bean), an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations division, who has such an uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job that he begins to question whether he really is the man he believes himself to be. The show also stars Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, Amber Valletta and Mason Cook. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Tina Majorino (who plays Maggie Harris, the newest member of the Dco team) talked about how she got involved with this show, that a different actor had originally been cast in Sean Bean’s role, how the rewrites of the original script changed the backstory of her character, how Maggie fits in with the team, and the research she did »

TNT's new series, Legends, is centered around an undercover operative, Martin Odum, who has multiple "legends" which allow him to infiltrate criminal enterprises and bring down the bad guys. He's not alone though, he has a team which supports him on his missions.
This summer, Executive Producer David Wilcox and stars Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino spoke with reporters about their new series, including the characters, source material, Bean's multiple roles and more. »
I will say this for "Legends," the new TNT drama (it debuts tonight at 9) starring Sean Bean: it does not attempt to hide Bean's native accent behind some bland non-regional American dialect, at least not in his main identity as FBI agent Martin Odom. Because Odom is a master of assuming undercover identities (the "legends" of the title), Bean gets to try on various semi-convincing accents the rest of the time, but at least "Legends" doesn't waste time trying to convince us that Ned Stark doesn't sound like Ned Stark when he's not playacting. The explanation for how a man with this accent ended up working for the FBI is utterly ridiculous, but it's also one line of dialogue that never has to be dealt with again, and it's an approach that I wish many more shows would take when hiring actors from the UK, Australia or New Zealand. »
