Why Winston Is the Best Part of New Girl

5 February 2016 2:45 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

New Girl has undergone a series of transitions over the past few seasons - after the Nick and Jess era, it's now the Schmidt and Cece era. Not to mention how Jess herself has gone Mia thanks to star Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy, but that's Ok, because it's giving the other characters time to shine. We've always loved Nick Miller, but this season more than ever, we've been appreciating Winston, who is pretty much the best character on New Girl now. He's weird, he's charming, he's sensitive, and he loves his cat, Ferguson. To salute Winston, we're celebrating all the reasons Winston Bishop has become the best character on the Fox sitcom . . . and obviously, saluting Ferguson goes without saying. »

Did Supernatural Find Its Spinoff? Did iZombie Get You Hot? Which Gilmore Return Do You Not Want? And More Qs

5 February 2016 10:26 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Gilmore Girls, American Crime, Supernatural and Younger!

1 | If Undateable gets renewed for Season 4, would it be too much to ask for “TV’s Scott Foley” to pop-in every week? Also, what joke from the finale’s East Coast airing had to be dropped from the West Coast staging “for legal reasons” (as Bill Lawrence shared on Periscope)?

Megan Fox Arrives in 'New Girl' Season 5 Trailer

4 February 2016 9:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, Fox announced that their hit sitcom New Girl will be getting a new roommate, with Megan Fox signing on for a multi-episode guest starring arc in the show. We got our first brief glimpse at the actress in a trailer that surfaced in December, but Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new trailer and photos from next week's episode, Reagan, airing Tuesday, February 9, with even more footage of the guest star. This trailer reveals that the actress' character, Reagan, has a history with Cece (Hannah Simone), who both "hooked up" at the MTV Beach House.

The casting move was made after Zooey Deschanel had a baby in real life, causing her to be absent from the show, leading to Megan Fox being cast. Her character Reagan will debut in next week's episode, and is described as a straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep, who comes to town on business and rents out Jess' room, »

Megan Fox Becomes The Newest New Girl In Latest Teaser For Season 5

4 February 2016 9:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s Fox on Fox in the new teaser for New Girl season 5, with today’s teaser heralding the arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress and guest star Megan Fox.

Filling the void left by series stalwart Zooey Deschanel – who took a brief hiatus from the show for maternity leave – Fox is on board to play the role of a Reagan, described as “a gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft when she rents out Jess’ room while she is sequestered on jury duty.”

Taking up the mantle of the newest New Girl, the latest clip for the series’ return is more of an introduction to how Fox’s newcomer will interact with her new friends, particularly Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson). With Deschanel’s Jess absent on jury duty, series showrunner Liz Meriweather teased just »

Zooey Deschanel & Anton Yelchin in Full Trailer for 'The Driftless Area'

2 February 2016 10:36 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The one who did this to you, he's gunna be made to pay." Sony has debuted a trailer for this direct-to-vod drama called The Driftless Area, which features an impressive cast but that's about it. Anton Yelchin stars along with Alia Shawkat (both of them play a punk rock band in A24's Green Room as well), plus the cast includes Zooey Deschanel, Frank Langella, Aubrey Plaza, John Hawkes and Ciarán Hinds. This story is described as "a contemporary fable about the ways we struggle to control time and fate in a possibly predetermined universe". The trailer introduces this as some kind of ghost story, where Yelchin can see a girl killed in a fire, and he tries to figure out what happened. Now I see why this is skipping theaters. Here's the first official trailer for Zachary Sluser's The Driftless Area, originally from Yahoo: Pierre Hunter (Anton Yelchin), a bartender with unyielding optimism, »

‘The Driftless Area’ Trailer Melds Magical Realism, Noir and Romance

1 February 2016 2:12 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s very hard to tell how much the first trailer for The Driftless Area gives away, but it sure seems like it gives up a doozy of a twist within the first thirty seconds about the main character of Stella (Zooey Deschanel). That said, it looks like there’s room for at least a dozen more curveballs in this strange blend of crime thriller, melodrama, and wistful romance.

Set in a small town, the story follows a melancholic bartender named Hunter (Anton Yelchin) who finds love when he returns to his family home after the death of his parents. But this love story doesn’t feel like the usual manic pixie dream girl romance that Deschanel’s been unfairly typecast in. A sense of profound loss hangs over the trailer, as Yelchin becomes tangled with a small-town criminal played by John Hawkes, and his crew of dangerous associates.

Zooey Deschanel And Anton Yelchin Explore Life After Death In Trailer For The Driftless Area

1 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hoping to prove there’s still life – and love – after death, director Zachary Sluser (via Yahoo) has premiered the first trailer for atypical romance film The Driftless Area, bringing together Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel in key roles.

Lifted from Tom Drury’s novel of the same name, the story orbits around Yelchin’s lonesome Pierre Hunter, a young man who falls head over heels for Deschanel’s Stella. Complications arise, though, particularly in the form of Stella’s dark past which leads Pierre on a crash course with John Hawkes’ seedy criminal.

Also starring Aubrey Plaza, John Hawkes, Alia Shawkat, Ciarin Hinds, and Frank Langella, perhaps the one thing that has us cautiously optimistic about Sluser’s adaptation is the way in which it blends together different genres. Your typical rom-com this is not, with elements dark comedy and even neo-noir spliced into the narrative. »

Janis: Little Girl Blue – a heartfelt account of a remarkable talent

1 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With no starry, big-budget biopic in sight, Amy Berg’s new Janis Joplin doc is an insightful reminder of a vivid yet complex figure

Hollywood’s long-promised, big-budget Janis Joplin biopic has been in the pipeline for what seems like 30 years now. And it never happens. I bet there’s been a Janis movie on the docket of one studio or another ever since the day she died in October 1970. The most recent projects have at one time or another attracted stars such as Amy Adams, Renée Zellweger and Zooey Deschanel. Pink has been slated to play her, as was the late, great Brittany Murphy at one time. Directors such as Catherine Hardwicke, Fernando Meirelles, Jean-Marc Vallée and Lee Daniels have been attached, only to pull out months or years later. In memory, she remains frozen in a kind of mish-mash of 1974 concert documentary Janis, Monterey pop festival and Woodstock footage, »

Welcome to Last Night on TV, our new daily column that looks back at what happened on television the night before.

Amazon Will Join Super Bowl Ad Roster For The First Time

27 January 2016 7:12 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon will take to the Super Bowl for the first time to tout the advantages of using “Alexa,” the personal Amazon Echo digital assistant it unveiled in 2014 – and appears to have enlisted actor Alec Baldwin and football great Dan Marino to help it achieve its goals.

A “teaser” released Wednesday shows Baldwin and Marino trying to plan a blowout Super Bowl party. The two agree that a “snack stadium” would help the shindig stand apart from the rest. “I’m going to need an architect, a five-star chef….” Baldwin muses as Marino takes notes.

A spokeswoman for a public-relations agency representing Amazon declined to specify when during Super Bowl 50 the ad would run or what advertising agency or agencies was involved in its creation.

Amazon is the latest member of a class of rookie Super Bowl sponsors that has decidedly more class and blue-chip reputation than those in past games. »

New Girl Season 5 Episode 4 Review: “No Girl”

27 January 2016 7:08 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When New Girl debuted back in 2011, it was promoted as a starring vehicle for Zooey Deschanel, with the rest of the show’s cast members playing supporting roles in whatever Jess’ big story was each week. That format stuck for the first half of New Girl‘s first season, but by the end of Season 1, the sitcom evolved into one of the best ensemble comedies on TV, utilizing the specific comedic abilities of all of its talented actors. And that’s why I wasn’t worried about how New Girl would fare when it was announced that Zooey Deschanel would be absent from

Review: 'New Girl' does just fine without Zooey Deschanel in 'No Girl'

27 January 2016 6:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on last night's Zooey Deschanel-less "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I'm sorry that the pretzel fell out... When "New Girl" debuted, every aspect of it was so fundamentally built around Deschanel that, when Fienberg and I discussed it on that week's podcast, he understandably dismissed any attempt to discuss her male co-stars. Four seasons later, the show has evolved so much that Jess is arguably a less essential character than either Nick or Schmidt. Deschanel's great, and Jess provides an important dynamic to the loft — the absence of which was the subject of much of "No Girl," where Jess being sequestered on jury duty made things more chaotic than usual — but the show's core relationship, and the driver of much of its comedy, has become the friendship between those two idiots. I'll be happy when Jess returns, but "New Girl" seems set up »

New Girl Recap: LoftBnB

26 January 2016 5:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Well, whaddaya know? New Girl screws around with the standard formula, and suddenly comes away with a stronger episode!Jess has sadly been called away for jury duty — a.k.a. Zooey Deschanel's maternity leave — which we learn more about thanks to a news clip on the "Celebrity Chef trial" and a great courtroom sketch of the "annoyingly inquisitive" jury. Her absence opens up space for the other characters, introducing a new dynamic between them, and the results are encouraging. All that, plus a very creepy Fred Armisen, makes for a satisfying New Girl experience. The main story of "No Girl" is about Schmidt's bachelor party. Nick knows that Schmidt longs to go somewhere, and, determined to do it up right, he suggests Tokyo as their bachelor destination. Winston, an unusual voice of reason in the background, keeps saying, "Ha, how are we going to pay for this?!" to which Nick responds, »
