Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.
Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

Jon Hamm spoke out for the first time since his rehab stint for alcohol abuse, saying his ordeal is “not for public consumption.” “Life throws a lot at you sometimes and you have to deal with it as much as you can,” he said to TV Week. “That’s why you have family and friends and co-workers to help you with that.” The “Mad Men” actor was in rehab for a 30-day stint recently; when news broke, his representative said his “longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt” had been supporting him through the tough time.

Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck later continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures as he »

Breaking Bad is to air on UK television in full, it has been revealed.
All five seasons of the AMC drama will be broadcast on new UK channel Spike after its launch next month.
The award-winning series charts his rise from chemistry teacher to criminal mastermind and murderer.
Breaking Bad spinoff show Better Call Saul, starring Bob Odenkirk as criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, is currently airing on AMC in the Us and is available on Netflix in international territories including the UK.
Dan Fogelman had built a praiseworthy list of writing credits with such hits as “Cars,” “Tangled” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” But that didn’t bring the world clamoring to finance what he hoped would be his directorial debut — a dramedy about an over-the-hill rock star who rediscovers his soul.
The sound of doors slamming shut might have become deafening had his script not fallen into the hands of an ambitious recent film school graduate named Shivani Rawat.
With the financial backing of her godfather, 5-Hour Energy drink magnate Manoj Bhargava, Rawat turned Fogelman’s passion project, “Danny Collins,” from a might-have-been into a bigscreen reality. Starring Al Pacino, Annette Bening and Christopher Plummer, it debuts in New York and Los Angeles on March 20.

One the perks of being a producer-director-writer-actor is the sheer quantity of circles that the multi-hyphenate tag permits you entry into. For James Franco, this means he meets a lot of people. Moreso than any other non-celebrity might in a regular day. By that rationale, it’s probably a lot easier to cast movies seeing as he knows everybody. Applying that conclusion to today’s piece of news on his latest effort, In Dubious Battle seems to stick; he really does know everybody because everybody’s in the movie.
Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene and Ahna O’Reilly are the latest additions to a cast that’s already bulging with starry names. This new roster join Nat Wolff, who signed up two days ago, and the previously-announced Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Danny McBride, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Franco himself.
