'Last Man on Earth' Finale: Kristen Schaal explains Carol's decision

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Boris Kodjoe versus Will Forte. It's a romantic choice very few of us ever have to make, but it was the decision facing Carol Pilbasian in Sunday's (May 3_ season finale of "The Last Man on Earth." Or, to put it a different way, Carol had to decide between Phil Miller and Phil Miller. And, as the episode concluded, Carol chose Phil "Tandy" Miller, driving away from Tucson with her ex-husband heading who-knows-where with a guy who many, many fans found themselves really disliking around midseason.  Has Phil changed just because he wrote a romantic song for Carol? Or was this just the latest example of Phil craving something he couldn't have? We'll see in Season 2. Last week, after watching an early screening of the "Last Man on Earth" finale, I sat down with Kristen Schaal to talk about Carol's choice, which the "Bob's Burgers" veteran is totally in favor of. »

'Last Man on Earth' co-star Mary Steenburgen gives herself a B for secret-keeping

17 April 2015 12:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mary Steenburgen made her first appearance on Fox's "Last Man on Earth" last Sunday night and although her name was fleetingly mentioned in a couple casting story, the Oscar winner has mostly kept mum. "I would give me a B," Steenburgen told me when I asked how well she did at keeping that secret. "I would give me an A if I hadn’t told my family that I was in it, but they kind of would have wondered where I was going every day at 5:00 a.m. So I’ll just give myself a B. I think my closest friends and my family knew what I was up to but I never said anything publicly about it. And I think I followed all the various instructions from my superiors." On thing that isn't a secret -- Sorry for that segue -- is that Steenburgen has been having a »

Orange Is The New Black Gets Renewed, Premieres New Season 3 Clip

15 April 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At last we left them, the inmates of Litchfield Correctional Institution were getting over the tremendous damage inflicted by Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) on the entire hub of inmates, while Toussant's character enjoyed one last taste of freedom. There's very little we know about season 3 thus far aside from the fact that both Lori Petty and Mary Steenburgen will have recurring roles, and Laura Prepon's troublesome Alex will make her return to Litchfield to face Piper (Taylor Schilling). And in the run-up to the season 3 premiere, Netflix has announced the renewal of Orange is the New Black for a 4th season, with creator Jenji Kohan still at the helm of the breakout hit series. Considering that we don't know who will make it out of season 3 alive as is, there's little to say about season 4, other than the minor comfort that whatever happens in the upcoming season won't be the last word on Litchfield. »

‘Justified’ Series Finale Goes Out With Its Boots On (Spoilers)

14 April 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX has produced noisier series over the years that “Justified” has graced its schedule, but none better. The final season has been a particular treat, with terrific cast additions (topped by Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen) that augmented the central focus on the trio of Raylan, Boyd and Ava. Expectations were thus high for the series finale, which stayed true to the program’s modern-cowboy ethos as well as the heady mixture of drama, comedy and tension that has always defined the dynamics among its key players.

As usual, this adaptation of an Elmore Leonard story (which included a classy ending-credits thank-you to its late pappy) juggled a multitude of plots, and even by this season’s standards had to hustle to bring resolution to most of them. At its core, though, the entire finishing flurry has been devoted to the determination of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant »

Mary Steenburgen has left Harlan for Tucson.

The Justified scene-stealer boarded Last Man on Earth Sunday as the latest survivor of a virus that obliterated most of human civilization.

Though the Fox series’ premise is a grim one, “We really have fun,” Steenburgen says. “I’m kind of a laugh junkie. It’s what I appreciate in life, because life is rich and sometimes it’s hard, and I really, really love to laugh and gravitate towards people who make me laugh.”

Goodbye to 'Justified,' a sharp-tongued, quick-drawing pleasure to the end

13 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"You make me pull, I put you down." These eight words are deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in a nutshell — and Elmore Leonard in a nutshell as well. The eight words, first presented in that order in Leonard's short story "Fire in the Hole" (expanding on a supporting player in a few earlier Leonard novels), tell you that Raylan is a man with both a rigid code and a high opinion of himself. And that he has to say them out loud — in this case to his former friend and present nemesis Boyd Crowder — suggests Raylan is a man who very much enjoys opportunities to put his code, and gun, into action. As dialogue goes, it is simple and spare while telling you everything you need to know — the perfect Elmore Leonard sentence. TV veteran Graham Yost took that line off the page and put it into the mouth »

'Orange Is the New Black' Season 3 Trailer Has Arrived

9 April 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Netflix announced that Season 3 of Orange Is the New Black will debut on Friday, June 12. Today, the streaming service has debuted the first trailer for this upcoming 13-episode season, which teases that each of these prisoners will be tested in ways they never imagined. The series was renewed for Season 3 way back in May 2014, a month before the second season even debuted, so don't be surprised to hear about an early Season 4 renewal in the months ahead.

The women of Litchfield unapologetically return for the third coming. With a crisis of faith and their beliefs and loyalties being tested, each character must decide what and who to believe in. The series' ensemble includes Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, Danielle Brooks, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Taryn Manning, Laverne Cox, Michael Harney, Samira Wiley, Yael Stone and more.

This trailer also showcases the return of Alex, played by Laura Prepon, »

Making Their Next Moves: Broad Green Pictures Up for the Challenge with “The Dark Horse”

9 April 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Their Tiff purchasing blitz wasn’t exactly over and done with. After Samba, 99 Homes and Eden, Broad Green Pictures have now added a touch of New Zealand in James Napier Robertson’s The Dark Horse. Yesterday, the distrib released their inaugural release slate with Mia Hansen-Løve’s latest being pushed out of the nest first — you can view the half dozen releases after the jump.

Gist: Starring Cliff Curtis, this is a true story based on the life of a charismatic, brilliant but little-known New Zealand Hero and chess champion – Genesis Potini, aka Gen.

Worth Noting: Robertson’s little known directorial debut is 2009′s I’m Not Harry Jenson.

Do We Care?: We’d normally not be inclined to see anything that groups feel-good, underdogs, chess and biopic elements, but Variety’s Peter Debruge appears to be a solid supporter calling this, “a stunning yet subtle Cliff Curtis performance, »

Directors: New Projects From Neill Blomkamp, Sean Durkin, Louis Letterier, Johnnie To, And More

24 March 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As collaborators, Sean Durkin and Antonio Campos have been a formidable pair. Campos produced the Durkin-directed breakout "Martha Marcy May Marlene," while roles were reversed for Campos' directorial efforts "Simon Killer" and "Afterschool." And the pair put their producing powers behind recent Sundance film festival hit "James White." Clearly they've got taste and talent, and they are putting it to use once again, producing "Katie Says Goodbye." Olivia Cooke, Mireille Enos, Christopher Abbott, Jim Belushi and Mary Steenburgen will star in the drama about "a 17-year-old waitress, played by Cooke, who attempts to overcome the hardships of poverty by prostituting herself in order to fulfill her dream of a new life in San Francisco." Wayne Roberts will direct with filming starting this month. [THR] Johnnie To always has several projects on the go at once, so here's another: he'll direct the heist thriller »
