Ann Coulter on Her Role in Sharknado 3

22 July 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The dystopia imagined in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! goes deeper than great whites raining down on all of humanity: The completion of SyFy's trilogy, which airs at 9 p.m. tonight, puts Ann Coulter in the White House. We caught up with the rabble-rouser to talk about her time on set, how the film influenced her political thinking (and her new book), and whether she plans to be back for the inevitable Sharknado 4. Take me through your character’s motivation. It’s a very important role. I’m of course doing all of the heavy-lifting, with all of these international crises. Mark Cuban is president — modeling it after Joe Biden [if he were] commander-in-chief, is my guess — when suddenly … well, you can imagine what happens next. I don’t know how to imagine. Does a lion attack you?Yes! No, this is actually where my acting skills come in: There were no actual sharks, »

How ‘Will & Grace’s’ Relatable Vibe Helped Audiences Accept Gay Characters

30 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

During its eight-season run on NBC, “Will & Grace” was nominated for 83 Emmy Awards, nabbing 16 statues, plus seven GLAAD Media Awards. The comedy was honored in the Smithsonian’s Lgbt history collection, and was recognized by Vice President Joe Biden for helping to educate the American public about the gay community. But getting the sitcom on air in 1998 was an achievement in and of itself.

“It wasn’t easy. You got the sense that there was some anxiety about it,” recalls David Kohan, who co-created the series with Max Mutchnick. “I remember one time our agent asked us, ‘Hey, can you make Will straight?’ ”

Kohan says Showtime’s David Nevins, then at NBC, was an early champion of the project, thanks to the characters’ dynamic — not their sexual identity. “If you set out to make a political statement, you’re just making a political statement, and political statements are boring,” Kohan tells Variety. »

Gay Rights and Hollywood Still Have a Long Way to Go

29 June 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Activist David Mixner stood alone on a theater stage in Los Angeles at the start of this year’s Gay Pride Month, sharing his memories with an audience of friends, political figures and a smattering of celebrities, about the time Ronald Reagan saw the light.

It was 1978, and aides to Reagan, who was on the cusp of launching his presidential campaign, believed he was ready to endorse a California initiative to ban gays and lesbians from teaching in the state’s classrooms, a ballot proposition inspired by the anti-gay crusades of singer Anita Bryant.

Mixner remembered when he and fellow activist Peter Scott landed a secret meeting with Reagan, who was exceedingly charming and willing to listen. Mixner warned the soon-to-be candidate that the initiative would create anarchy: Students could retaliate for a bad grade by accusing their teachers of being gay.

Reagan didn’t immediately reveal what he was going to do, »

HBO Has Revealed the First Look at Kerry Washington as Anita Hill

16 June 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Kerry Washington is taking a break from Scandal to portray Anita Hill in HBO's biopic Confirmation, and the network has tweeted out the first picture from the set. Hill is known for being a primary figure in Clarence Thomas's 1991 Senate hearings to become a Supreme Court judge. Hill, who was an aide to Thomas during his time at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, publicly accused him of sexual harassment. We have yet to get a look at Wendell Pierce as Thomas or Greg Kinnear as Joe Biden, but just be patient. Check out Washington below! First Look. @KerryWashington as Anita Hill on the set of the HBO Film, Confirmation. pic.twitter.com/Hc98wArzZO — HBO (@HBO) June 16, 2015 »

First Look at Kerry Washington as Anita Hill in HBO’s Confirmation

16 June 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released our first on-set look at Kerry Washington as Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill, who, in 1991, gave testimony that accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment while she was working for him, derailing his ascension to the highest court in the land. It's the subject of Rick Famuyiwa's upcoming Confirmation, in which Thomas will be played by the great Wendell Pierce, who has a long history with HBO in both The Wire and the superb post-Katrina drama Treme. I wouldn't exactly expect as lovable personages as his beleaguered Baltimore detective, Bunk, or the Trombone-blowing Antoine Batiste in his depiction of the famously flippant Thomas, however. [caption id="attachment_374901" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Open Road Films[/caption] The film, written by Erin Brockovich and In Her Shoes scribe Susannah Grant, will also serve as Famuyiwa's follow-up to his enjoyable, enlivening Dope, which hits theaters in a limited release this coming weekend. »

Photo: Kerry Washington as Anita Hill in HBO’s ‘Confirmation’

16 June 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s photographic proof that Kerry Washington’s latest role comes with just as much scandal.

HBO has released the first photo of the Gladiator in Chief as Anita Hill in “Confirmation,” its upcoming biopic about Clarence Thomas’ Senate hearings to become a Supreme Court judge. Hill was Thomas’ aid at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission who accused him of sexual harassment.

The cast also includes Wendell Pierce as Thomas and “Americans” actress Alison Wright as his wife, Virginia. Greg Kinnear plays Joe Biden, who at the time served as chairman of the Thomas’ Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. Other cast members include Dylan Baker as Senator Orrin Hatch, who also served on that committee, and Grace Gummer as Ricki Seidman, the Ted Kennedy aide to whom Hill confided about the harassment.

Confirmation” is directed by Rick Famuyiwa and written by Susannah Grant. Michael London, Grant, »

The Scandal star will play Anita Hill — a lawyer who worked as an adviser to the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and who later was called upon to testify about reports he had sexually harassed her — in the upcoming dramatization of Thomas’ 1991 confirmation hearings.

First Look at Kerry Washington as Anita Hill in HBO's 'Confirmation'

16 June 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Looks like Kerry Washington's Anita Hill could use a little help from Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope.

On "Scandal," Washington plays a master fixer who can elect senators, clear innocent prisoners' names, and bring a president to his knees (literally). If only Anita Hill could call on her in the upcoming HBO movie "Confirmation."

HBO released the first image of Washington as the lawyer who testified in 1991 that she had been sexually harassed by then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. The movie follows the confirmation hearings that took place before Thomas ascended to his seat on the highest court in the land.

Wendell Pierce ("The Wire") plays Thomas, and he and Washington are joined by a star-studded cast including Greg Kinnear as Joe Biden, Jennifer Hudson as witness Angela Wright, and Jeffrey Wright as Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree. HBO has yet to set an airdate for "Confirmation."
