Briefs: More On “Constantine,” Exploring Gay SciFi Characters In “Credence,” And Could “Enlisted” Get A Second Chance?

14 July 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Birthday shoutouts go to Matthew Fox (above), who is 48, Jackie Earle Haley is 53, and Jane Lynch is 54.

We thought it was dead, but could Enlisted actually get a second chance on Yahoo?

American Psycho: The Musical is headed to The States, specifically Off-Broadway, but there’s no word on whether Matt Smith will make the move with it.

Cory Monteith’s Friends & Glee Co-Stars Remember Him One Year After His Tragic Death

As a follow-up to the post last night about NBC straight-washing Constantine, it turns out that the reporter who asked the original question was our own Jim Halterman, and Jim sent over the full transcript. Turns out David Goyer was probably expecting to be asked about it.

Question (Jim Halterman): I wanted to ask you guys, Constantine was bisexual in the comic books. Will that be touched upon in the show? And Matt, how would you »

Is the Boring Gateway Character Worth It?

13 July 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jack Shephard was originally supposed to be played by Michael Keaton, and he was going to die in Lost’s pilot episode. After his death, the first to be killed by the smoke monster (that honor ended up going to the plane’s pilot, played by Greg Grunberg), Kate would take over as the leader and primary protagonist. This would have been surprising because it would buck conventions, killing off the heroic white male leader so that the female could take over.

J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof quickly changed their minds about Jack’s death, Keaton backed off so that Matthew Fox could become the character we all know, and the rest is history. Kate became just another supporting character in the show’s massive ensemble. The first thing we see in the actual pilot episode is Jack’s eye, and from that point on we stay mostly with him. »

Jennifer Love Hewitt Joins 'Criminal Minds' Cast For The Fall

Cannes: After Hitting Bottom, Spanish Fortunes Rise Again

16 May 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Spain’s film industry, the spring outlook for 2014 represents a frustrating paradox.

On the one hand, theatrical grosses and ticket sales through April 20 were up 12% and 29%, respectively, over 2013, according to Rentrak. The romantic comedy “Spanish Affair” (pictured) helped, having grossed $60.8 million as of April 29, making it the second biggest hit ever in Spain after “Avatar” ($103 million). And the local market share from Spanish productions was the highest in memory at 27.7% through April 20.

Yet Spain’s double-dip recession from 2009-12 has withered its industry. The budget of the industry’s main subsidy, Spain’s Film Protection Fund, fell 56% from $106 million in 2011 to $46.5 million this year. To add insult to injury, TV investment in local films roughly halved as TV advertising plunged 53% from 2007 to 2013’s $2.3 billion.

Any assessment of the recent uptick in admissions must also be tempered by the fact that Spain’s box office showed signs of bottoming out last year, »

Sandra Oh, Hugh Laurie, Jane Lynch: 12 TV stars who should be making films

15 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This week sees Sandra Oh's final regular appearance in the long-running ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy as arguably its finest character, Dr Cristina Yang.

Oh has been one of the show's stand-out performers throughout its 10-year run, but has starring in such a time-consuming role limited her career path until now?

To mark Oh's decision to escape the restraints of commercial network TV, Digital Spy has collected just a few other actors who perhaps should have 'done a George Clooney' by getting out early and made the transition to top movie star, not that movies are obviously better than TV nowadays of course.

This list only names actors who starred in long-running commercial network shows, rather than cable, as most shows in the latter have shorter seasons with longer gaps in between - just in case you were wondering where Jon Hamm and Alexander Skarsgård were...

Yes, Some Episodes of Lost Sucked

8 May 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Every few months, to replenish the internet's supply of grousing, someone has to write an article about Lost. This time, it's Esquire's turn, and Lost showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse admit that not every episode of the show was a perfectly formed gem to be treasured for all eternity. "We did 121 hours of Lost," Lindelof says. "Arguably only 15 to 20 of them were subpar, bordering on turds." Cuse agrees. I mean, I think the episode where Jack gets his tattoos in Thailand [is the worst episode]. I think it's cringe-worthy, where he's flying the kite on the beach. It was not our finest hour. We used Matthew Fox's real tattoos. That's how desperate we were for flashback stories. Season three's "Strange in a Strange Land" is indeed as awful as Cuse remembers — Bai Ling, etc — but not everyone would call that the worst episode. Some »

Here's the Worst 'Lost' Episode, as Revealed by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse

8 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Lost" broke ground when it premiered in the fall of 2004, immediately hooking viewers with its eclectic characters and intricate mythology. The series didn't always fire on all cylinders, though, as some frustrated fans can attest, and in a new interview, showrunners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof admit that there were some pretty weak moments -- and one episode in particular stands out as the worst.

Speaking with Esquire, Cuse and Lindelof said that they were proud of the show as a whole, and stand by many of the choices they made throughout the series's six-season run. But the duo's constant efforts to challenge themselves with their storytelling -- and differentiate "Lost" from other shows -- did result in some misfires, they said.

"[The Nikki and Paolo arc] was an example of a story idea where once we'd initiated it we regretted having done it," Cuse told Esquire. "Or, on a smaller scale, when we told »

Dominic Monaghan Talks "Lost" -- Who Smelled the Worst on Set?

25 March 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Fans of "Lost" were left with a lot of lingering questions after the show's series finale --  but this probably wasn't one of them.Dominic Monaghan, who played heroin-addicted rocker Charlie on the show, appeared on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" on Tuesday, where he was asked to reveal which of his costars "smelled the worst" on set.And Dom didn't Plead the Fifth -- he actually gave an answer. See who stunk in the video above.The actor was also asked why Michael (Harold Perrineau) and Walt (Malcolm David Kelley) didn't appear in the church at the end of the final episode ... what he thought about hated characters Nikki and Paulo ... and what he stole from the set. Monaghan had an answer for everything. While we wish Andy Cohen had asked about his real life ex and costar Evangeline Lilly or his feud with Matthew Fox, we'll take whatever "Lost" answers we can get. »

Damon Lindelof: "I Think There Will Be More Lost"

19 March 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"We have to go back!" It was Lost's best-known catchphrase (said by a desperate, bearded Matthew Fox), but could the iconic ABC series ever actually come back in some way? Via network TV, Netflix, a movie, a one-man play? (Ok, maybe not that last one.) Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof tells E! News he believes Lost will live on in some way in the future—but there's a catch. "I think there will be more Lost," Lindelof tells me. "But I don't think it's gonna come from us. My guess is that some other creative team will come in and take their creative spin on this content, which is really exciting." For his part, Lindelof says he's done with the entire »

PaleyFest: ‘Lost’ Troupers Talk Alpha Males, Feverish Fans and Pranks

17 March 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sunday’s 10th anniversary reunion of “Lost” was noticeably missing a few major players — including Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly — but that didn’t make it any less fun for the die-hard fans who turned out at the Dolby Theater.

Although it’s been almost four years since the ABC drama show ended its run, the panelists acted as if it were only yesterday that they said goodbye to the island.

Comedian Paul Scheer moderated the session with co-creator/exec producer Damon Lindelof, exec producer Carlton Cuse and seven cast members.

“The show may be done but we are not done with the show,” Scheer said before bringing Cuse and Lindelof on stage.

Following a screening of the much-loved season one episode “Exodus: Part 1,”  episode, Scheer, Lindelof and Cuse were joined on stage by Malcolm David Kelley, Maggie Grace, Ian Somerhalder, Josh Holloway, Jorge Garcia, Henry Ian Cusick and Yunjin Kim. »

Matthew Fox: 'I was treading on eggshells around Tommy Lee Jones'

22 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Lost star Matthew Fox heads back to World War II for his latest film, the historical drama Emperor.

Fox plays Bonner Fellers, a general who's sent to Japan to decide if Emperor Hirohito will be hanged for war crimes.

Starring alongside him is Eriko Hatsune as Aya Shimada, a woman Fellers romanced years earlier, and Tommy Lee Jones as legendary Us military figure General Douglas MacArthur.

Fox said that he was "really moved" by the script for Peter Webber's film, and found that the true life story was one worthy of big-screen treatment.

On working with Jones, the actor told Digital Spy: "Tommy came on at the very end of the shoot for the last two weeks.

"I think it served the film really well.

"I was the brigadier general up until the point the real general came along - MacArthur showed up.

Lost, New Girl: The 5 worst lead characters on TV

24 January 2014 5:45 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Some shows are defined by their leads - you can't imagine 24 without Jack Bauer or Breaking Bad without Walter White - but for other series, their central character isn't so much an anchor as dead weight.

Dull, grating, sometimes just outshone by their co-stars - here's five shows we love with five leads we don't.

Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother

Ted Mosby is a jerk - sorry, but it's true. The format of How I Met Your Mother sort of makes Ted (Josh Radnor) the de facto lead, but his interminable search for The One is actually the least interesting part of the show. Give us Marshall or Barney any day - we've had enough of Ted mooning over Robin to last a lifetime.

Jack Shepherd on Lost

Lost had plenty of complex and compelling characters - Sawyer, Locke, Juliet, Ben - but Jack (Matthew Fox) is »

'Justified' plays the prison blues: Why going to jail makes for dull TV

The dirty devils of Harlan County’s underworld hollers are always going to jail, and that’s not always a good thing for lawman Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and Justified. Over the course of its four seasons, the FX drama has routinely sent its winning corps of low-life losers to the clink, including its most magnetic menace, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), as well as weedy gimp Dickie Bennett (Jeremy Davies) and Raylan’s bad daddy Arlo (Raymond Barry), who met his final fate there.
