A lie agreed upon: David Milch's 'Deadwood'

11 March 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We are 10 days away from the 10th anniversary of the premiere of "Deadwood," David Milch's revisionist Western and one of the greatest drama series to ever grace this medium. You all are no doubt familiar with my love of "Deadwood" by now, whether as a chapter in my book or one of the main topics of conversation for the last three summers of the blog as I re-reviewed each episode. Along the way, we were lucky enough to be graced with the presence of Jim Beaver, Keone Young, W. Earl Brown and Garrett Dillahunt, as these alums of the show offered their own memories of each episode, each of them suffused with the passion that comes from having been part of something so strange and so special for too short a period. Now I have another Beaver-related "Deadwood" reverie for you, in video form. My old partner in crime »

Reese Witherspoon Goes Wild in First Look at Director Jean-Marc Vallee's Latest Biopic

11 January 2014 10:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The upcoming drama Wild from director Jean-Marc Vall&#233e is offering a different type of role for Reese Witherspoon, seen here in the first photo from the film. While she is best known for taking on comedies, this drama was a true challenge for the actress, as it recreates the true-life story behind lone hiker Cheryl Strayed's novel of the same name, which recounts her personal journey throughout the wilds of Oregon.

In the summer of 1995, the novice 26-year-old hiker set out to trek the formidable Pacific Coast Trail by herself, hoping to overcome her own personal demons, which included drug use, a recent divorce, and the death of her mother. Jean-Marc Vall&#233e recently spoke about the actress' transformation for the part, which he likened to Matthew McConaughey in the recent Dallas Buyers Club, which Vall&#233e last directed.
