Orange Is the New Black loses Pornstache, gains Fringe alum

29 July 2014 1:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some new casting news has come in for the hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, which recently launched its second season and garnered quite a few Emmy nominations.

According to The Wrap, Pablo Schreiber, who plays George Mendez, a.k.a. “Pornstache,” won’t be back for season three, due to his new role in the HBO comedy series The Brink, which stars Jack Black and Tim Robbins.

In addition to Schreiber’s exit, we also have word that Fringe alum Blair Brown has joined the show, in an unspecified role. Her role as Nina Sharp on Fringe‘s five seasons makes me think she’d be able to give Orange Is the New Black‘s Red (Kate Mulgrew) a run for her money, but I guess we’ll just have to sit back and wait for official confirmation before knowing for sure.

Emmy Guest Star Nominees Prove Integral to Storytelling

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A long time ago in another TV galaxy — we’re talking eight, even 10 years ago — the “guest star” appearance was a pretty well-defined event; the famous Hollywood actor or Broadway actress would turn up on an episode of a hit show, interact briefly with the well-oiled cast, toss off a few bon-mots, and depart, never to be seen again.

That’s all changed. Today, series creators, writers and showrunners carefully craft stories and arcs for “guest” spots, as evidenced by such varied turns as Jane Fonda’s in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Nathan Lane’s in “Modern Family,” Joe Morton’s in “Scandal,” Diana Rigg’s in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Beau Bridges in Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” Bob Newhart’s in CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and Paul Giamatti’s in PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” all Emmy nominees.

For Lane, who just earned his third nomination on ABC »

Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne Talk Disturbing ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Workplace (Video)

25 July 2014 1:44 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Emmy nominees Natasha Lyonne and Uzo Aduba showed up together on “Chelsea Lately,” but the “Orange Is the New Black” stars were quick to point out that they're no longer getting along. Apparently, the nominations for Outstanding Guest Actress, which they share with fellow castmate Laverne Cox, have torn the women apart. Maybe once the ceremony is over, everyone will start getting along again.

Best of Late Night TV: Dwayne Johnson's Fainting Spell and Morgan Freeman's Helium Balloon Voice (Video)

25 July 2014 12:03 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Morgan Freeman made an appearance on "The Tonight Show" to inhale some giant helium balloons with Jimmy Fallon, and in case you're wondering, yes, it was the most entertaining thing ever. And yes, he still managed to sound classy.

Also on "The Tonight Show " was everyone's favorite songstress, Kesha (no longer Ke$ha), who showed up to chat about the time she broke into Prince's house, checked out all his purple velvet, and found the man himself playing guitar in a beanie.

Dwayne Johnson (and his bulging biceps) stopped by "Conan" to chat about his starring role in "Hercules," and casually dropped the bombshell that he passed out while filming. »

From Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, Orange is the New Black tells the heartbreaking and hilarious stories of the women at Litchfield Prison.  In Season 1, Piper Chapman’s (Taylor Schilling) wild past came back to haunt her, resulting in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary where she finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.  In Season 2, shocking revelations and new arrivals shake up the lives and relationships of the prisoners, in ways they never could have imagined. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, co-stars Natasha Lyonne (“Nicky Nichols”) and Yael Stone (“Lorna Morello”) talked about their expectations for the show, when they realized just how much viewers were talking about it, how the success of Season 1 affected the vibe on set for Season 2, how humbling it is to strip their vanity away with the prison wardrobe, and the beautiful journey their characters took together »

Why Orange Is the New Black's Uzo Aduba Deserves the Emmy

14 July 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Orange Is the New Black racked up an impressive number of Emmy nominations for its first season, particularly for the outstanding guess actress in a comedy series category, where its female stars have scored three nods. While that category will pit a lot of fan favorites against one another - Natasha Lyonne, Laverne Cox, and Uzo Aduba are all up for the award - we already have our favorite: Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren. Aduba plays Crazy Eyes to perfection, transforming what could have just been a funny background character into one of the most heartbreaking and interesting parts of the whole show. While we love Cox's and Lyonne's performances, Aduba's portrayal of Crazy Eyes is truly magical. Keep reading for all the reasons we think Aduba should be going home from Emmy night with a statue in her hand - and don't forget to check out more reasons Oitnb deserves all of its Emmy love. »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »
