Waxing Episodic: 'The Office' celebrates 'Diversity Day'

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In HitFix's new feature "Waxing Episodic," we reflect on an episode of television we'll never forget. NBC's "The Office" debuted 10 years ago this week, arriving with the unenviable challenge of having to live up to the standard of one of the best-received comedies of recent times, but went on to outstrip the British original. I don't even know if that's a controversial statement anymore. The British "Office" is great and, in terms of comedic efficiency, NBC's version didn't come close. But Ricky Gervais' series was built for 12 episodes and a Christmas special and never had to worry about longevity, never had to wonder how sustainable its circumstances and its characters were. NBC's version took that world and made it renewable. Whether you think the American "Office" was great (or even good) for all 200-ish of its episodes, it was certainly very good or great for more than 13 episodes. I »

Before 'Get Hard,' Ranking 9 Will Ferrell Comedies from Foul to Funny

25 March 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

He also probably has had the most success with co-stars that go beyond the core group of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jack Black, Steve Carell and the Wilson brothers, Owen and Luke. Basically, this onetime “Saturday Night Live” kingpin (1995-2002) and member of The Groundlings improv troupe plays well with others, even if he is given to streaking across the screen in his birthday suit. Not that Ferrell is averse to reuniting with his buddies now and again. He has said he is prepared to reprise his role as designer Mugato, known for his fashion line inspired by the homeless, for the recently announced “Zoolander 2.” March has been a sort of proving ground for members of the comedy clique. Vaughn, whose “Unfinished Business” swiftly sank like a stone earlier this month, is struggling to maintain his movie star status. Good thing he has signed up for the second season of HBO’s "True Detective. »

24 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

While she was mentioned back in November along potentials Steve Carell and Tina Fey, it was just announced that Anna Kendrick will indeed topline an ensemble cast comprised of Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew. Shooting will take place in Atlanta next week. Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps is producing.

'The Office' 10 Years Later: Why Michael Scott is One of the Most Original Characters of All Time

Read More: Steve Carell Redefined His Career By Surprising Everyone in 'Foxcatcher' The U.S. Office was an ensemble show that worked because of its rich cast of zany characters. But let's face it: Michael Scott was the belle of the ball. Steve Carell stayed on NBC for seven of the series' nine years, and the show launched the actor to comedic acclaim. His career trajectory has only broadened over time; including a transformative turn last year in "Foxcatcher," for which he earned an Oscar nod and in which he played a psychotic millionaire and wrestling enthusiast. Audiences seemed surprised by Carell's competence in interpreting a troubled figure, especially after watching him in so much farce over the years.

SXSW 2015: Hollywood Heads to Austin for Annual Festivities

20 March 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.

SXSW kicked off on Friday the 13th, very fittingly with a haunted house party, hosted by Wgn America’s supernatural thriller “Salem.”

“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.

“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

Wgn America’s “Salem” presented SXSW’s Film Opening Party to celebrate the 22nd annual event, plus the upcoming second season of the supernatural thriller, which debuts April 5.

“It says everything about what movies have become and what television has become, in the sense of a certain kind of drama, a certain kind of character-based genre madness that can’t necessarily even find a home in the movies, and it finds its home quite naturally in television, especially cable television,” “Salem” co-creator Adam Simon told Variety of the series kicking off SXSW film’s opening night. “It says a lot that SXSW — that actually represents, »

First Look At Julianne Moore And Ellen Page In Real Life Drama Freeheld

See Full Gallery Here

Production wrapped on Peter Sollett’s forthcoming human rights drama Freeheld late last year, and today, the first clutch of images from the movie have debuted online. Taken from the film’s official Facebook page, the stills showcase Oscar-winner Julianne Moore and her co-star Ellen Page as a couple who rallied against the archaic benefits system in 2005.

Based on the 2007 documentary of the same name, Freeheld follows the story of Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree. The couple fought to change the Domestic Partners Rights Act as its vague parameters – it “grants pension benefits to domestic partners of all New Jersey public employees” – failed to provide those benefits to partners from a same sex relationship. The original documentary stirred up good critical notices upon release and went on to receive the Special Jury Award at Sundance, with its director Cynthia Wade also snagging the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short. »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Drama Series

10 March 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Mad Men" has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the TV Academy. Matthew Weiner's series won Best Drama at the Emmys for its first four seasons, among other numerous trophies. But its leading man has never won. Despite earning a nomination every year "Mad Men" has been eligible (plus guest star nods for "30 Rock" in three seasons), Hamm has lost every single year (spurring him to create the "Losers Party" with fellow snubee Amy Poehler). Will he join the ranks of the unjustly ignored like Jason Alexander and Steve Carell, or will the Academy finally reward him in his final year as Don Draper?  Not if Kevin Spacey has anything to say about it. Hot off his Golden Globes win and feeling rejuvenated after Bryan Cranston and Matthew McConaughey's exit from the category, the two-time Oscar winner is looking to get one step closer to the Egot »
