Richard Linklater Directs PSA Slamming Texas’ Anti-Transgender Bathroom Bill — Watch

21 February 2017 1:54 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The recent wave of so-called bathroom bills, which seem to be predicated on the notion that transgender people either didn’t exist or weren’t using public restrooms until a few years ago, has made its way to Texas. In response, Legacy Community Health and the Aclu of Texas have partnered with one of the state’s best-known filmmakers to direct a PSA decrying the proposed law. Watch Richard Linklater’s minute-long “Taking a Seat, Making a Stand” below.

Part of the I Pee with Lgbt campaign, the video features several people making the point that “this isn’t a privacy issue — it’s a discrimination issue.” “Lt. Gov. Patrick and other state lawmakers who support S.B. 6 portray the bill as a ‘common sense’ protection of ‘common decency,'” said, Terri Burke, executive director of the Aclu of Texas, »

16 February 2017 3:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Constance Zimmer has booked a guest role on the TBS comedy “Angie Tribeca,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The “UnReal” star will play a hard-nosed NYPD detective with a neurotic side, and her role has been described as “juicy.” The episode date has not been set yet, but “Angie Tribeca” Season 3 is set to debut sometime this year.

Zimmer currently stars on Lifetime’s “UnReal” for which she was nominated for an Emmy last year.

The show has been renewed for a third season, which is currently in production and will air this year.

BAFTA wins for Dev Patel and Luke Davies - Lion at The Paris Theatre Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Luke Davies, the screenwriter of Lion (based on Saroo Brierley's memoir A Long Way Home) was a BAFTA Adapted Screenplay nominee along with Tom Ford (Nocturnal Animals) Theodore Melfi and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures); Eric Heisserer (Arrival); and Robert Schenkkan and Andrew Knight (Hacksaw Ridge). On Sunday night, it was announced that he and Dev Patel (Best Supporting Actor) for his portrayal of Saroo Brierley were honoured with BAFTAs.

During our conversation, Luke Davies gave me some insight on Sue Brierley and Nicole Kidman, Burt Lancaster in John Frankenheimer's The Train, Anton Corbijn, looking forward to Gianfranco Rosi's Boatman, his work on Felix Van Groeningen's upcoming Beautiful Boy starring Steve Carell for Jeremy Kleiner of Brad Pitt's Plan B, and what he learned at the World Premiere of Lion in New York. »

Luke Davies, Oscar nominated screenwriter for Lion with Anne-Katrin Titze Photo: Susan Engel

Meeting up with novelist, essayist, film critic, and very famous poet, Luke Davies, to discuss his latest screenplay, based on Saroo Brierley's memoir A Long Way Home for Lion, directed by Garth Davis, starring Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Sunny Pawar, we talked about the Proust moment, Hans Christian Andersen's Little Match Girl, Anton Corbijn, John Frankenheimer's The Train, Felix Van Groeningen's Beautiful Boy starring Steve Carell, Gianfranco Rosi's Boatman, Australian adoption laws, butterflies, and visual cues.

In Lion, memories are the only tools available to the hero for regaining a sense of origin. Luke Davies attaches us firmly to little five-year-old Saroo (Sunny Pawar) who gets lost on a dangerous, life-altering adventure.

Saroo (Sunny Pawar): "He describes this hedge that was filled with butterflies."

'The Office' Star Jenna Fischer (and Her Character Pam Beesly) Are Once Again Welcome to Dine at Chili's

7 February 2017 7:49 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not all lifetime bans last a lifetime -- sometimes just 11 years.

Chili's has officially lifted their ban against The Office's Pam Beesly, played by Jenna Fischer, ending their grudge against the Dunder Mifflin character that was first sparked back in 2005.

In "The Dundies," the first episode of the second season of The Office, Pam got a little drunk at an inter-office award ceremony held at a Chili's (and then stole some drinks from other customers' tables), which resulted in her ban. But the chain restaurant is finally ready to put the incident behind them.

On Monday, Fischer called back to the iconic scene when she snapped a picture of herself standing in front of a Chili's sign looking nervous and wrote, "Should I try to go in?"

Chili's responded to Fisher's tweet with a callback of their own, writing »

The ban has been lifted!

Having been banned from Chili’s more than 11 years ago for getting slightly too intoxicated, Pam Beesly is officially once again welcomed to go order as many margaritas and fajitas as her heart desires.

Beesly portrayer Jenna Fischer tweeted Monday from outside of a Chili’s restaurant, asking, “Should I try to go in?,” and the internet went nuts for the actress’ callback to The Office season 2 premiere, “The Dundies.” The restaurant got in on the fun by tweeting back at Fischer, but now they have taken it »

Timothee Chalamet, who starred in “Call Me By Your Name,” is in talks to come on board opposite Steve Carell in the drug addiction story “Beautiful Boy.”

Variety reported in 2015 that Felix van Groeningen (“The Broken Circle Breakdown”) was attached to direct the project. Cameron Crowe was originally on board to direct but the director subsequently left the project to direct “Aloha.”

Van Groeningen directed the 2012 Belgian title  “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Carell will next be seen in the upcoming “Battle of the Sexes” as Bobby Riggs opposite Emma Stone as Billy Jean King. »

Amy Adams, Viola Davis and More Urge People to Follow Their Dreams in Honda Super Bowl Ad – Watch

3 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Super Bowl ads can be entertaining and comical, yet every once in a while you get a commercial that tries to inspire – while also selling a new product, of course. In Honda’s new big game spot, A-list actors like Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Robert Redford unite to urge people to chase their dreams, because you never know all the amazing places that they will lead you.

Bringing  to life the celebrities’ high school yearbook photos, the ad shows the stars giving advice to those watching.

“When you start out, you might not know where you’re going. Or what you’re doing,” says a pre-famed Tina Fey holding a rose.

“You just keep going. Keep your focus and avoid distractions,” adds Redford.

Tina Fey, Steve Carell and More Bring Their Old Yearbook Photos to Life in Inspiring Super Bowl Ad

2 February 2017 6:55 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Some of Hollywood's biggest stars revisited their old (and sometimes embarrassing) school yearbook photos in a new Super Bowl commercial.

While most Super Bowl commercials are either funny (e.g. Old Spice's "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like") or moving (e.g. Budweiser's "Lost Dog"), this 60-second spot for Honda manages to be both.

The ad brings the stars’ throwback pics to life through the use of CGI, making the images appear to move while present-day Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Robert Redford, Amy Adams, Magic Johnson, Missy Elliott, Stan Lee, Jimmy Kimmel and Viola Davis deliver the lines.

"At times, you might fall flat on your face," Adams says in the clip. "But technically that's still moving forward."

In the commercial, we get a glimpse at Fey's detached corsage, Carell's dubious mustache and Kimmel's unfortunate tuxedo.
