Justin Bartha Just Revealed a National Treasure Secret You've Missed All This Time

29 June 2017 8:13 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While we were watching Nicholas Cage and Justin Bartha search for secret treasure all those years ago, we missed one secret hiding in plain sight.  Turns out—Bartha was wearing a wig! Well, for a scene. The actor, who portrayed Benjamin Gates' nervous sidekick, Riley Poole, revealed shooting the final scene required a bit of quick thinking.  As fans of the 2004 classic know, Riley hops into a Ferrari convertible in the last scene of the film—his shiny prize from discovering all that hidden treasure. However, a week before shooting the scene, Bartha had made a silly mistake that could have really been a problem.  "After we shot the movie, we had to do a couple reshoots," »

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actor in a Drama

6 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a testament to “Better Call Saul” that the category might be dominated by its supporting players. While Jonathan Banks has scored nominations two years in a row, Giancarlo Esposito is added to the mix this year for reprising the character of Gus Fring, last seen on “Breaking Bad.” That performance earned him an Emmy nod and there’s no reason to think bringing the character to the spin-off won’t bode well. Michael McKean has shockingly never been nominated for an Emmy, and this year he delivered a phenomenal performance in the episode “Off Brand” when his character took the witness stand. “Westworld” also has a powerhouse trio in Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright, all of whom could find themselves in the line-up. Also boasting dual possibilities is “The Crown,” which saw five-time Emmy winner John Lithgow channel Winston Churchill and Jared Harris as King George VI. They »

The Best One-Season Wonder TV Shows That Never Got Renewed — IndieWire Critics Survey

16 May 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best one-and-done show, a.k.a. a One-Season Wonder? (This refers to shows that only got one season and tragically did not get renewed, as opposed to limited series that never intended to continue.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

There are so many! But for me the best will always be “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a show that I watched at an age before I really understood the whole TV renewal/cancellation process, but even then I knew it was unjustly short. The show was such a great blend of smarts, snark, and genuine emotions, in a way that could actually be painful to watch. »

Exclusive: 'The Good Fight' Bosses Break Down Finale Cliffhanger and Season 2 Plans

16 April 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Sunday’s finale of The Good Fight.

What’s next for The Good Fight?

CBS All Access’ first scripted series wrapped its first season on Sunday with a jam-packed finale that left several looming questions unanswered. After dutifully siding with her troubled family all season long, at the end of the finale, the feds arrived at Maia Rindell’s (Rose Leslie) doorstep to arrest her.

The twist came after her embattled father, Henry Rindell (Paul Guilfoyle), chose not to take a plea deal that would have cleared Maia and put him in jail -- instead, becoming a fugitive on the run. What does this mean for Maia?

The Good Fight creators Robert and Michelle King jumped on the phone with Et to break down the biggest finale moments and what they’re planning for season two.

‘The Good Fight’ Finale: Robert & Michelle King Talk Law, Disorder and Plans for Season 2 (Spoilers)

16 April 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“There’s a whole lot of people who want to see this country fail, Diane,” Adrian Boseman tells Diane Lockhart in the season finale of “The Good Fight.”

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watch the season finale of “The Good Fight,” titled “Chaos.”

The spinoff of “The Good Wife” concludes its first season with a strong episode, “Chaos,” that does a good job of capturing the unsettled, post-election moment. Protesters are screaming in the streets, hackers are running amok, fake news is pervasive, Internet trolls are malicious and government is overtaxed at best and corrupt at worst.

“It feels like something’s come detached — like a piece of machinery that doesn’t sound right,” Boseman says.

In this environment, it’s a gift to have “Good Fight” to pick up the mantle of its predecessor and offer an entertaining and thought-provoking weekly look at defense lawyers who are basically trying to do the right »

The bastard threw his own flesh and blood under the bus!

In the closing act of The Good Fight‘s inaugural season finale, we learned that the embattled Henry Rindell (played by the terrific Paul Guilfoyle) decided to forego a plea deal that would’ve landed him behind bars but cleared daughter Maia (Rose Leslie). Instead, he chose to hit the road and live out his days as a fugitive. Cut to »

Exclusive: Cush Jumbo Finds Catharsis in 'The Good Fight'

7 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Cush Jumbo wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye.

One year ago, the British actress faced an unexpected dilemma: The Good Wife -- in which she played Lucca Quinn, the smart-mouthed, witty lawyer who became Alicia Florrick’s closest confidante in the seventh and final season -- was ending,and Jumbo wasn’t prepared for it.

“I definitely had mixed feelings about it. At that stage, if that was what I’d gotten, that was fine with me because it had been an amazing experience,” Jumbo, 31, told Et of the bittersweet final weeks on The Good Wife, as she packed up her life in New York City for an extended trip back to London on an early morning in March. “It was all a bit of a surprise when it extended into something else.”

That “something else” became The Good Fight, the critically-hailed spinoff that shifted its focus to Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), her goddaughter, Maia Rindell »

The Good Fight, Now Filled With Guest Stars, Suicide Attempts and Internal Strife

2 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

How do you make The Good Fight's least likable character better? Introduce his mother. Now that may sound like an odd way to go about it, but when you cast Andrea Martin as Francesca Lovatelli, the mother to Justin Bartha's Colin Morello, you're doing just that. In "Reddick vs. Boseman" viewers were treated to a new side of Colin when he and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) ran into his mother at an art gallery. Seems Colin hasn't been too forthcoming with his family about Lucca, but once they meet, Colin's family is all in…because they want him to use Lucca as prop to run for office. Does he want to do that? He said no, Lucca cried. To be continued, obviously. There are two more episodes left this »

The Good Fight's Most Annoying Episode Yet?

19 March 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's almost like The Good Fight was created just to provide commentary about the current political climate. In "Social Media and Its Discontents," Diane Lockart (Christine Baranski) and Co. took on the alt-right and internet trolls—yes, again—while Maia (Rose Leslie) debated whether or not her dad (Paul Guilfoyle) was trying to get evidence against her and the firm, and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) dealt with her feelings in the forced love interest plot with Colin (Justin Bartha). It was a more cohesive episode, with Maia weighing in on Chum Hum's moderation practices with her own harassment experience, but boy was it an annoying episode. All the credit goes to John Cameron Mitchell's Felix Staples. »
