3 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Kyra Sedgwick has just closed a deal to return to TV: She will guest-star in two episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine this season, EW has learned.

Sedgwick, whose seven-season run on The Closer ended in 2012, will play a different kind of deputy chief—Madeline Wuntch, the steely longtime rival of Captain Holt (Andre Braugher, who received an Emmy nomination earlier this month). Now in a higher-ranking position than Holt, Deputy Chief Wuntch is evaluating all of the precincts, and she’s aiming to take him down—along with the rest of the Nine-Nine.

She will make her first appearance in the second episode of season two, »

Film Review: ‘The Pleasures of Being Out of Step’

11 July 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It would be difficult to determine in which domain Nat Hentoff, premiere jazz critic and highly controversial First Amendment rights champion, contributed more to the public consciousness. Documentarian David L. Lewis makes no attempt to do so in “The Pleasures of Being Out of Step,” cavalierly swinging back and forth between Hentoff’s musical and political activism, much as Hentoff himself did. Stooped at almost 90 but feisty and humor-filled as ever, Hentoff presides over a film rich in the sounds and occasional sights of legendary cultural figures, from Lenny Bruce and Malcolm X to Bob Dylan and Coleman Hawkins.

Controversy-seeking yet affably mild-mannered, Hentoff thoroughly sticks to his beliefs with an iconoclasm that has nothing to do with political correctness. The fact that he started writing out of a passionate commitment to jazz artists gave his writing an immediacy and engagement that, when coupled with his intellectual acuity, gifted jazz »
