‘Master of None’ Star Aziz Ansari on When to Expect Season 3

22 June 2017 12:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

This story about Aziz Ansari previously appeared in the Comedy/Drama/Actors issue of TheWrap Emmy magazine. Aziz Ansari likens his Netflix comedy “Master of None” to Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm, in that it doesn’t fit into the traditional cycle of broadcast seasons. For example: More than a year went by between the Season 1 release in November of 2015 and Season 2’s May 2017 bow. “I was hesitant to even do a second season, because I feel like I never want the show to become something where we’re cranking out meat and there’s like a template for the show, »

Band Aid – Review

15 June 2017 6:31 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

With respect to those most Righteous of Brothers, this new film could’ve been title, “They’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin””. Yes, it’s an “anti-rom-com.”. It covers what happens long after the “meet cute”, the “mis-communications”, and the “reconciliations after the misunderstandings” that lead right to the fade-out proposal or nuptials (or both). These two have definitely “hit the skids”, but instead of “turning into said skid”, they take an unusual detour. Rather than undergoing major marriage “surgery”, like a gold band extraction, they believe that the way to heal old emotional may only require a simple Band Aid.

 

Married thirty-somethings (er…late thirty-somethings) Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally) seem to be stuck into a deep, deep, rut. A failed writer, Anna earns a buck now by being a Uber driver (cue the montage of zany, obnoxious passengers), while Ben designs company logos and corporate art from home on his laptop (ah, »

Curb Your Enthusiasm season 9: Mary Steenburgen teases her return

15 June 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jun 22, 2017

After a long absence from the show, Mary Steenburgen has returned to the ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm...

Eight years after she last found herself on the set of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mary Steenburgen is very happy about having had the chance to get back into the improvisational groove. She and real-life husband Ted Danson will once again feature in the ninth season of Larry David's misery-soaked comedy, and although time constraints affected how long she was able to stay on set, Steenburgen didn't let that curb her own enthusiasm.

“I’m not in it a lot because [the filming] overlapped with Last Man [On Earth], so I really wasn’t able to do very much,” she admitted to Gold Derby, before adding “it honestly felt like no »

Bill Maher Recovers From N-Word Debacle But What Has He Learned? (Column)

9 June 2017 9:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the host stood in front of a cheering audience and tried to craft a mea culpa. On last week’s show, Maher dropped the phrase “house n—–” as a joke during an interview with Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, and since then, he’s been trying to make amends.

HBO issued a strongly worded statement about Maher’s use of the phrase, and Maher himself apologized. It’s not like Maher to regret insensitivity — he prides himself on political incorrectness and often mocks the apology tours of other public figures. But Maher’s use of the racial slur merited a serious response.

At least as far as airtime goes, “Real Time” went a long way towards addressing Maher’s use of the slur. The opening segment of the live show was a one-on-one conversation with Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson, author of “Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to »

‘Fargo’ Creator Noah Hawley On Whether There Will Be a Season 4

9 June 2017 9:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one likes to think about their favorite shows ending, even their creators. But when FX Networks President John Landgraf said “there may never be another ‘Fargo,'” during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, speculation began to run rampant.

Creator Noah Hawley, during his first public appearance since the interview, was asked about that statement during a “Fargo” panel at the Atx TV Festival in the creator’s hometown of Austin, Texas.

“Am I sure there’s going to be a fourth season of ‘Fargo’?” Hawley said. “Here’s the thing: I wasn’t sure there was going to be a second season, and I wasn’t sure there was going to be a third season until I had an idea I really liked.

“I have a network that said to me at the end of Season 1, ‘You know, if you want to leave it there, it’s been a successful experiment, »

Glenne Headly Remembered: ‘She Was a Total Perfectionist’

9 June 2017 2:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Glenne Headly was a very serious actress with a gift for comedy. That’s how Anna D. Shapiro, artistic director of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Co., remembered the theater’s longtime ensemble member, who died Friday at the age of 62.

“Glenne was a very, very serious actor and one of the hardest-working people I’ve ever worked with,” Shapiro told Variety. “She was a total perfectionist and she was obsessed with the science of acting comedy…She would focus on what it was that made something true, and by that uncovering why it was funny.”

Headly joined the famed Chicago theater company in 1979, five years after it was founded by Gary Sinise, Terry Kinney and Jeff Perry. Even after Headly moved to the West Coast to work in movies and TV, she maintained a regular presence in Steppenwolf productions through 2005. She won Chicago’s local Joseph Jefferson Awards for her »

Norman Review

8 June 2017 12:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Quietly, Richard Gere is consistently making rather good movies, telling interesting stories and taking on nuanced, intriguing roles. From The Benefactor to Arbitrage (let’s just forget The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for now) – he’s tackling intimate character studies, and his latest, Joseph Cedar’s Norman, is no different.

Gere plays the eponymous protagonist, a professional chancer and over-enthused fixer – only problem is, nobody will actually let him get close enough to fix anything. Until he meets Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), an Israeli politician spending some time in New York, touched by Norman’s offer to buy him a pair of shoes. Three years pass, and Eshel is now an influential world leader, as the Prime Minister of his native country, and when he returns to the States to meet the President, Norman shows up at a function – and they remember each other well.

Netflix Original Movie Review: Handsome Needs Its Own Series

3 June 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are some aspects of Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie where it seems like star Jeff Garlin (he plays the title role of Gene Handsome) is doing his best work. Then, you remember the role he plays as Larry David's sidekick in Curb Your Enthusiasm and you know better. Make no mistake about it, Garlin is doing some very solid stuff in Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie, but it is hard for me to watch him on the screen and not see (or expect) Jeff Greene or Murray Goldberg for that matter. So lets just say that, as far as I am concerned, Handsome is an idea that needs its own full blown series.

The story of Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie follows the classic tropes of all the detective movies and shows we love. Gene Handsome is a Los Angeles homicide detective who is very good at his job. »

Chicago – Dealing with pain has become almost an obsession with Americans. Between over the counter sales of pain relievers, doctor visits and the prescription abuse of painkillers, a crisis has come about. Why are we hurting? Director Michael Galinsky, with co-directors Suki Hawley and David Beilinson, explore an alternative means of pain treatment in “All the Rage.”

Director Michael Galinsky Talks to Dr. John Sarno in ‘All the Rage

All the Rage” is subtitled “Saved by Sarno,” which refers to Dr. John Sarno, a physician whose work with the mind’s connection to healing has been groundbreaking… but only on an underground and word-of-mouth basis. With so much mysterious back pain, plus joint and muscle aches, Sarno had advanced that it is the body’s reaction to emotional stress – a syndrome he calls Tension Myositis. The key is to find the source of that stress, and miraculously, »

The 20 Best TV Comedies of the 21st Century, Ranked

23 May 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A comedy on TV can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Some see the genre in its basest form: a show that makes us laugh. Others have expanded the definition (along with the Emmy rules) to include the drama-comedy hybrids, as long as they clock in at around half-an-hour. Still others find comedy in black humor or extra campy nighttime soaps.

But over the last few decades, what makes for great TV comedy has changed just as much as the genre itself. We’ve seen it all, and yet, there’s always something new right around the corner. So before we get too far along, let’s remember the best of what we’ve see so far, across the ever-changing landscape of television.

Pete Davidson Opens Up About Going to Rehab on 'SNL' Weekend Update

14 May 2017 3:25 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Pete Davidson sat down for a segment on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" on Saturday and opened up about his life now that he's off drugs for the first stretch of time in eight years.

"They say quitting drugs is hard, and it's true. But what they don't tell you is how boring it is," Davidson, 23, told "Weekend Update" co-anchor Colin Jost. "Whoever said that there aren't enough hours in the day was a liar. There are so many hours it the day, 24 to be exact. Did you know that? Because I thought there were only six."

Davidson also revealed that he managed to reach sobriety through a rehab program, but had some advice for others looking for rehabs of their own: "Never pick the rehab you really wanted to go to while you're high."
