'Orange Is The New Black' star Uzo Aduba, Pamela Anderson run their first marathon

3 November 2013 5:22 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Orange Is The New Black" star Uzo Aduba and "Baywatch" alum Pamela Anderson have one big thing in common today in addition to their connection to TV: they're both now marathon runners.

The pair of actresses was among the 45,000 people who took to the streets of New York City to run the Ing NYC Marathon. This was the first time either of them had a run marathon, and they ended up raising a whole lot of money for great causes while doing it.

Aduba finished the race in 5:17:57, and thus far hasn't taken to Twitter to discuss her run now that she's finished. "Orange Is The New Black's" Crazy Eyes was running to raise money for cancer patients and ended up bringing in $3,335 for the organization Team Continuum. Her "Oitnb" costar Laura Gomez (aka Blanca Flores) tweeted to her, "A big shoutout to the lovely @UzoAduba who's »

Excellent Bening Sharpens Muddled 'Scissors'

8 October 2013 4:09 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Running with Scissors’ movie review: Annette Bening shines in muddled coming-of-age tale (photo: Annette Bening and Joseph Cross in ‘Running with Scissors’) Problems abound in Ryan Murphy’s movie version of Augusten Burroughs’ book of memoirs Running with Scissors. Those range from the film’s cartoonish humor and meandering storyline to an unappealing lead character and fuzzily sketched secondary ones. The only element that prevents this muddled comedy-drama from becoming a complete failure is a generally solid supporting cast headed by an outstanding Annette Bening. Growing up isn’t easy, we all know that. But as Running with Scissors‘ adolescent anti-hero Augusten Burroughs (Joseph Cross) will tell you, things can get particularly difficult when your father (Alec Baldwin) is a raging alcoholic and your mother (Annette Bening) is a poet wannabe clearly suffering from bipolar disorder — all the while believing that her husband is out to do both her and you in. »

For Guest Actors Like Wilson, Fox and Damon, Art Imitates Life

12 June 2013 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Twitterverse burned bright after sexy Patrick Wilson portrayed a doctor getting physical with Lena Dunham’s schlumpy character Hannah on HBO’s “Girls.”

A typical fan tweeted “Patrick Wilson is so hot he would never do Lena Dunham” and critics blasted the two-day sensual affair episode as unrealistic.

Wilson’s wife, Dagmara Dominczyk, couldn’t help but jump into the fray:

“Funny, his wife is a size 10, muffin top & all, and he does her just fine.”

Wilson took his sex symbol image and allowed that even the sexiest of guys might go for a less-than-glamourous girl. And he’s just one of several Emmy-worthy actors who took their guest-star roles personally and turned it into the perfect fit for their characters.

Wilson lived in the Greenpoint neighborhood, where the episode was shot, for six years. He says he frequently felt like “the old guy in the neighborhood” and the »

Campfire Tales: Robinson’s Cold War Conjecture Leadenly Onerous

For his first directorial feature since 2006’s true story tinged Lonely Hearts, Todd Robinson is back with another hyperbolized scenario with Phantom. While once again managing to assemble an arresting number of notable names in his cast line-up, the excitement stops there, revealing itself to be a misfire of nearly offensive proportions from its first frames. Struggling to maintain its straight faced seriousness throughout its tiringly slow pacing, it stumbles horridly into a shallow gutter in its last act, capping itself with some resounding laugh out loud sappiness.

The disappearance of a 1968 Russian nuclear missile that was later found unexploded on the ocean floor is the object of affection here. Neither country’s government has declassified their information pertaining to this missile, so this story is what could have maybe possibly happened with it. It’s 1968, and Soviet naval commander »

New Images from Phantom starring Ed Harris, David Duchovny

24 February 2013 8:33 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Todd Robinson's Phantom submarine thriller has added fresh images to the gallery. The film stars Ed Harris, David Duchovny and William Fichtner. This is quite a solid cast, including names like Lance Henriksen, Johnathon Schaech, Jason Beghe, Dagmara Dominczyk, Sean Patrick Flanery, Jason Gray-Stanford, Julian Adams and Kip Pardue. The trailer was really enjoyable, and this could be quite an entertaining watch when its March 1st release date hits. Pic's distributed by Rcr Distribution, and finds over 2,000 theaters. Unfortunately, there hasn't been much promotion for the film as far as I can tell, so I don't expect Phantom to turn in any massive box office figures. I'll catch the movie if I can. »

Patrick Wilson's Wife Defends Lena Dunham About 'Girls' Episode

22 February 2013 7:52 AM, PST | Celebsology | See recent Celebsology news »

We would be lying if we didn't admit that the Girls episode "One Man's Trash" that aired a couple of weeks ago didn't catch us off guard. Pushing aside the rest of the characters (besides Ray) for just one night, Lena Dunham decided to just focus primarily on Hannah and a grumpy new guy Joshua (Patrick Wilson) who just wanted people to respect his trash can. But what first turned into a screaming match between Joshua and Ray soon turned into a whole lot of Hannah and Joshua sex. 

It wasn't a favorite episode, but it's been said that Hannah doesn't want to hide from life experiences, so writing wise it worked. But to some on Twitter, it didn't seem to be realistic. Realistic, is that the right word here? Well, Wilson's real-life wife Dagmara Dominczyk had a perfect response to one tweeter who just could never imagine someone like »

This Week in Ladybits

Both Dakotas would pretty much like you to hand over your ladybits to a responsible male as long as you’re in the state.

The late Dr. George Tiller’s clinic in Wichita, Kansas is set to reopen. Mother Jones had an interview with the brave Julie Burkhart, who is spearheading the project.

There are quite a few people who won’t miss Pope Benedict XVI, including those who aren’t big on compulsory childbirth.

A teenager in Texas is claiming her parents are trying to force her to get an abortion. And this right here illustrates why it doesn’t work when anti-choice forces try to call the other side “pro-abortion.” Being pro-choice isn’t about thinking abortions are rad, it’s about wanting women to have control over their own bodies, regardless of »

TV on Tap: Rupert Grint Signs Up for a Comedy Pilot, "The Jeff Probst Show" Has Its Torch Put Out and ABC Delays "Happy Endings"

14 February 2013 5:39 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

It's a Glee Valentine's Day on Valentine's Day.

News

I guess Rupert Grint is the new Earl Hickey? The Harry Potter star has been cast as the star of Super Clyde, a CBS comedy pilot from My Name is Earl creator Greg Garcia. Grint will play an awkward fast food employee and superhero fanboy who inherits a lot of money and decides to use it to become a super hero who helps the deserving.

In further bad news for Up All Night, NBC has reduced its order from five episodes to just one, according to Deadline.

There's an NBC comedy pilot set in the 80s with J.K. Simmons and Parker Posey playing a married couple. I don't know what to think of that.

After struggling to find an audience all season, The Jeff Probst Show has been cancelled, despite starting out with a two-year order. Probst has strong hosting skills but, »

Farmiga Chats About Religion, Spirituality and Her Directorial Debut in Video Interview

12 February 2013 3:27 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Farmiga on Higher Ground: Religious dogma and the search for spiritual enlightenment Academy Award-nominated actress Vera Farmiga discussed issues such as religious dogma, the striving for spiritual enlightenment, and the making of Higher Ground, her first tryout as a director, while chatting with entertainment journalist Tim Cogshell. (Although Higher Ground was released in 2011, Cogshell's interview was just recently published on YouTube.) Please scroll down to check out the six-minute interview. For the most part set in Iowa from the '60s to the '80s, Higher Ground follows a young couple (Farmiga and Boyd Holbrook), who become enmeshed with a radical Christian denomination. Real life interferes, however, something that eventually makes Farmiga's character begin to question her beliefs in god. Loosely based on Carolyn Briggs' memoir This Dark World: A Story of Faith Found, the film as co-written by Briggs and Tim Metcalfe. It had its world premiere »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2013: #48. James Gray’s Nightingale

14 January 2013 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Nightingale

Director: James Gray

Writer(s): Gray and Ric Menello

Producer(s): Gray, Anthony Katagas, Greg Shapiro, Christopher Woodrow

U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, Dagmara Dominczyk, Angela Sarafyan

There are some cinephile circles who’ve come to think that James Gray is in a class of his own or that he is on par with the likes of PTA, David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky and co. While there are several admirable strengths in Little Odessa and the three films that have followed (I’ve especially embraced the darker, more nuanced qualities that remind of 70′s American Independent cinema) but the filmmaker has yet to topple over into masterpiece category – perhaps it is in the year where his output is a total of two (he wrote Blood Ties) where we’ll see him receive accolades from all critics circles and not just the French. »
