14 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When Larry David played Bernie Sanders during a guest spot on Saturday Night Live back in October 2015, people were blown away by the Curb Your Enthusiasm star's spot-on impression of the former Democratic presidential candidate.

Although we’ve seen the 3-D map at Dragonstone before, the one at King’s Landing in the Red Keep was brand new to fans, and wasn’t even complete on the screen. Cersei needed a map to match her outsized ambitions and the one she commissioned covered the entire floor a large courtyard. At the beginning of the scene, a craftsman is seen working on the almost-finished map before the queen dismisses him.

‘Room 104′ Review: The Duplass Brothers’ Low-Budget HBO Experiment is a Grand Success

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When watching serialized TV, it’s one thing not to know what’s coming next; that’s exciting. So many mysteries chase that feeling, hoping to reward the audience as much as they shock them with a bevy of unexpected twists. But it’s a completely different proposition not to know what, who, or when, and “Room 104” invites these questions and more at the start of every episode.

Beyond the episodic anthology label assigned to it, the new HBO series from Mark and Jay Duplass changes everything but the room from episode-to-episode. In doing so, it creates a mystery box for viewers to unwrap every time they press play: What’s inside? You have to wait until the end to find out.

If you’ve seen Curb Your Enthusiasm then you undoubtedly know who Krazee Eyez Killa is.  He’s a gangsta rapper and boyfriend to Wanda Sykes. He cheats on his wife a lot and shares very little with his friend Larry David.  However, the little he does share tends to be hilarious.  The official announcement of the series’ season premiere sidelined the character and he was never mentioned at all.  The fate of the Krazee-Eyez Killa is yet to be known but considering his phenomenal role in the series, he might be revived.  In the meantime here are some of our favorite

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: Larry David Reveals Bernie Sanders Relation and The Secret Behind ‘TV Larry’

26 July 2017 6:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Larry David would like you to know that there is very little difference between “TV Larry” and “real Larry.”

“TV Larry is about a quarter of an inch away from Real Larry,” the creator and star of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “Real Larry plays golf, so TV Larry plays golf.”

TV Larry and Real Larry both get into their fair share of rude spots, but neither version of Larry, David said, really compares to Donald Trump. “I don’t consider myself to be a prick!” he said.

26 July 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Television Critics Assocation press tour arrived in Beverly Hills July 25 and will continue through August 9. Each day, Variety will publish a roundup of the most essential news items to come out of the day’s panels.

In today’s roundup, Andrew Sodroski and Greg Yaitanes discussed the humanity in Discovery Channel’s “Manhunt: Unabomber” series, Mahershala Ali was confirmed to star in “True Detective” season three, and HBO Original Programming chief Casey Bloys admitted the press release surrounding David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’s “Confederate” project was misguided.

Sodroski and Yaitanes, producers of the six-part Unabomber limited series, said they wanted to bring light to certain aspects of a well-known criminal case like FX did with “The People Vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Paul Bettany stars as bomber Ted Kaczynski and Mark Duplass plays his older brother, David, who turned his brother in after recognizing his writing style in the Unabomber’s manifesto published »

Larry David’s stint playing Sen. Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live” began the night of the first Democratic primary debate in 2015.

The comedian and “Seinfeld” creator  spoke about his “SNL” run Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour, where he appeared to promote the upcoming ninth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
