Why Getting Less Wigged Out on ‘The Americans’ Was a Good Sign (Emmys Watch)

8 July 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Say goodbye to wacky wigs for husband and wife Kgb agents Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) on “The Americans.” It’s a sure sign that the Cold War spy series is winding down for Seasons 5 and 6. But it also means focusing more attention on the survival of their marriage and family.

“It was a transitional season and it was hard saying goodbye to [aliases] Clark and Jennifer because those looks are retired now, but it was fun doing more truth by craft with Philip,” said Peg Schierholz, who is head of hair.

“The Clark disguise became a hat that he would put on when he was outside for people just getting a quick glimpse of him. I actually did that old theater trick of sewing blond curls attached to a cap that he could put on and »

Donald Trump Denies Inviting Mike Tyson to Gop Convention

28 June 2016 10:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump is denying reports that he has invited former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to the Republican convention next month. “Iron Mike Tyson was not asked to speak at the Convention though I’m sure he would do a good job if he was. The media makes everything up!” Trump tweeted Tuesday night. Trump’s message was in response to a Bloomberg report that his campaign aides are lining up a slate of iconic sports figures to join them in Cleveland, Ohio, including Tyson, legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight and Nascar chief Brian France. »

Review: 'The Americans' just closed its best, darkest season yet

8 June 2016 8:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's The Americans season finale coming up just as soon as I watch the Super Bowl without you... "I think it's time." -Gabriel As Gabriel notes to Philip and Elizabeth in a scene that threatens to upend all of our expectations for the series' final two seasons, their assignment to America was never intended to be a permanent one. Plans were already underway to have William come home after delivering the Lassa virus to the Centre, and once he gets captured by the FBI, the risk to the Jennings family becomes so great that it makes more sense to send them all home — even if that "home" would be a foreign concept in every way to Paige and Henry — than to keep them in the field and risk their capture. With two seasons to go — and with Philip's son Mischa on his way to America to search »

Mike Ditka Criticizes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama - Out at Espn's (PC) Sunday NFL Countdown?

9 March 2016 1:14 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka recently criticized Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and even said he'd vote for Donald Trump if he's the Republican nominee for president in interviews and now he's out of a job at Espn. Did his opinions on politicians get him demoted? A report claims he's been ousted by Espn from the cast of "Sunday NFL Countdown" and will be replaced by Matt Hasselbeck. Coincidence? Is this now Espn - PC? Expect that argument. Check out the photo below to see how un PC Ditka is. Top Right News has the quotes gathered here of Ditka's speaking his mind in the weeks before the announcement: "Barack Obama’s a fine man. I mean, he’s pleasant enough,” Ditka said of the current Us president. “He would be great to play golf with. But he’s not a leader. “This country needs leadership. It needs direction. »

TV Review: Espn’s ‘The ’85 Bears’

2 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For a documentary about a team of colorful characters that decimated the rest of the NFL, “The ’85 Bears” is surprisingly sentimental, in places even maudlin. Much of that has to do with the tragedies and illnesses that have befallen the group, including the untimely death of star Walter Payton, Dave Duerson’s suicide (related to brain damage suffered as a player), quarterback Jim McMahon’s struggles with early-onset dementia, and the deteriorating health of defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan. Given all that, this “30 for 30” production toes a delicate line, celebrating the Bears’ ebullient heyday while acknowledging its conflicted present.

Directed by Jason Hehir, narrated by exec producer Vince Vaughn and timed to the 30th anniversary of Chicago’s only Super Bowl victory, the story begins with the Bears defense taking the extraordinary step of writing to owner George Halas, urging him to retain the gruff, irascible Ryan despite firing the team’s head coach. »
