'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice"- Who Will Play 'Commissioner Gordon' ?

3 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" recently filmed in Michigan, with sources reporting that DC Comics' character 'Commissioner Gordon', a close ally of 'Batman' could appear in the new film. If the rumors are true, fans agree the role should go to an Emmy Award winning actor, who previously played the character in a DC Universe Animated Original Movie:

The campaign is on again to have three-time Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston, who previously voiced 'Lt. Jim Gordon' in the 2011 DC Universe Animated Original Movie "Batman: Year One", to appear in the new film, this time not as 'Lex Luthor', but as 'Jim Gordon'.

‘Better Call Saul’: New Images, Plot Details & Cast Revealed

5 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The world lost a fine show when AMC’s Breaking Bad ended its run last year, but fans fiending for more of the world of science teacher-turned-meth kingpin Walter White (Bryan Cranston) were excited to learn about creator Vince Gilligan’s plans for the spinoff Better Call Saul, which centers on crooked attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).

Details on the Saul-centered look at the world of Breaking Bad have rolled in fairly regularly during the past year, to the point that we know some basic, crucial things about the show’s timeframe, set “before, during and after“ Breaking Bad, how the tone will be different from the source series, and that fan-favorite Bb regular Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) will be ...

"Better Call Saul" Updates

8 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images, plus an official synopsis from AMC's "Breaking Bad" prequel "Better Call Saul", debuting in 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk reprising his "Breaking Bad" role as shifty lawyer 'Saul Goodman':

"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...

"...and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. 

"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."

"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic. »

‘Better Call Saul’ Will Be Set in 2002, Vince Gilligan Says

11 July 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul” will be set in “about the year 2002,” executive producer Vince Gilligan told reporters Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “We tried hard on ‘Breaking Bad’ to not be too specific to when it was, but now we kind of have to be,” Gilligan said. “I hesitate to say it, but it is indeed a period piece. It feels like yesterday, but it was 12 years ago.” Also read: ‘Better Call Saul’ Will Use ‘Flexible Timeline’ for Possible Bryan Cranston Return The timeline answered one of the big questions about the show:. »

While all the focus has been on the Emmy battles between A-listers like Bryan Cranston vs. Matthew McConaughey and Julia Roberts vs. Kathy Bates, a slew of other stars picked up nominations.

Emmy bait: Watch nominees in 25 of the year's best TV scenes

11 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.

EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

Beware: 10 Upsets that could happen on Emmy night

10 July 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

If there is an awards show that doesn’t go according to script in Hollywood, it’s the Emmys where upsets happen all the time due to its complex voting process. Episode submissions and judging panels often bring frontrunners to their knees and ignite hopes for little-seen underdogs. It’s how Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom") took down Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") last year, but it’s also ironically how Cranston won for the freshman season of “Breaking Bad” against past winner James Spader ("Boston Legal"). So let’s have a look at the 10 possible upsets to look out for at this year’s Emmys: -Break- 1. Ricky Gervais could be up to his old tricks Remember when all eyes were on Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") and Steve Carell ("The Office") back in 2007, and then the envelope opened and Ricky Gervais pulled off a jawdropper Comedy Actor win for "Extras"?

New York Takes Starring Role in Emmy Race

10 July 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Who says the TV industry is just a Hollywood thing?

Not the Emmy voters, who this year recognized New York-based productions with a total of 107 nominations — topping even HBO’s heavyweight tally of 99. Add to that the deep pool of nominated talent that got its start on New York stages — everyone from Mandy Patinkin to Adam Driver — and it all serves to highlight the fact that on screen and on stage, New York and Hollywood are closer than they’ve ever been.

New York’s robust Emmy showing is part of an overall trend that has seen New York attract a growing chunk of TV and film production thanks to aggressive incentive programs from both the state and the city. The 107 nominations, touted by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, encompasses all the shows that qualified for the city’s Made in NY incentive, open to productions of »

'Scandal' star Joe Morton reacts to Emmy nom, reveals the secret to evil Papa Pope

10 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Joe Morton entered the Scandal world in season two, but it wasn’t until Kerry Washington’s Olivia Pope identified him as her “Dad” in the finale that Papa Pope really came to life. In season three, Morton perfected the art of powerful monologues as Papa Pope, delivering mesmerizing speech after mesmerizing speech all while slowly taking over Olivia’s entire world (and that of B-613). But after this morning’s news—that Morton has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama—the actor could be delivering a new type of speech come August 25.

Not so fast, 'Breaking Bad': 'True Detective' may crush you at the Emmys

10 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Since airing its final season last summer, "Breaking Bad" has been considered the show to beat for the Emmy as Best Drama Series, which it bagged last year. This morning it scored its biggest Emmy haul ever with 16 nominations. But watch out for HBO's much buzzed about "True Detective," which scored a respectable tally of 12 bids and could be setting itself up to take down the current reigning drama champ. (See the complete list of Emmy nominees here.) -Break- Ultimate Emmy heavyweight bout: Bryan Cranston vs. Matthew McConaughey In addition to the hefty batch of nominations it received this morning, "True Detective" has several other factors in its favor.

‘Grand Central’ Trailer: Léa Seydoux and Tahar Rahim’s Love Is Radioactive

10 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Love in the time of great and terrible radiation isn’t a novel concept. Look at Marie and Pierre Curie. Or Bryan Cranston and his coworker wife in Godzilla. Now, the nuclear power from within a French plant is going to spark the beautiful power of desire within Léa Seydoux and Tahar Rahim. It’s science. The trailer for Grand Central, a film directed by Rebecca Zlotowski (Belle Épine) and written by Zlotowski and Gaëlle Macé (Aliyah), is a study of passion over Osha safety standards, which are there for a reason, buddy. Gary (Rahim, A Prophet) is a worker who takes up a job at a nuclear power plant in the French countryside because if Homer Simpson can do it, really then everyone else can, too. He’s quickly introduced to the inherent dangers of his new line of work through the trailer’s whirlwind montage of safety measures and visions of his new friends suiting »

The 2014 Emmy Award Nominations

10 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Unsurprisingly, HBO leads this year's nominees for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The network's early days of AIDS telemovie "The Normal Heart" dominated its categories with a full nine nominations amongst the major awards. Their fantasy series "Game of Thrones" scored the most nominations of any program overall - six for the major awards and a further thirteen amongst the technical awards.

Regarding the major awards, FX's "Fargo" was the show in front with eight nominations; "Breaking Bad," "Orange is the New Black," "House of Cards" and "Downton Abbey" were next with seven; "Game of Thrones," "Modern Family" and "American Horror Story: Coven" all scored six; "True Detective" and "Sherlock" got five each; "The Good Wife," "Mad Men" and "Veep" nabbed four apiece; and "Luther," "Masters of Sex," "Silicon Valley," "Scandal" and "Louie" all scored three each.

66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.

Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.

I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »
