Watch: Johnny Depp Plays Donald Trump

10 February 2016 1:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Johnny Depp is known for his transformative performances, from his swashbuckling pirate Jack Sparrow to his chilling Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. Now, Depp is equal parts hilarious and terrifying as business mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a new 50-minute movie biopic from Funny Or Die. “Funny Or Die Presents Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie” is a fictional television movie based on Trump’s best-selling autobiography of the same name. Director Ron Howard introduces the film he “picked up at a yard sale just outside Phoenix, Arizona,” which was originally “thought to be lost in the Cybil Shepherd blouse fire of 1989.” Between the cheesy, techno music and over-the-top graphics, the satire is a relic straight out of the 1980s. The movie riotously depicts Trump’s quest to acquire the Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City from Merv Griffin (Patton Oswalt). The movie is littered with cameos, »

Golden Globes 2016: The Ultimate Party Guide

4 January 2016 11:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While this awards season’s front-runners are less concrete, the week-long roster of ritualistic parties leading up to the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday will follow a tried-and-true formula — with a few exceptions.

Audi and W Magazine will join revelry forces, rather than throwing rival cocktail bashes on Thursday; Art for Amnesty joins the party with a first-time brunch fostering free speech on Friday; Showtime will be celebrating solo, rather than teaming up with partners CBS and the CW; and Amazon — which landed its first Golden Globe last year, and has both winner “Transparent” and newcomer “Mozart in the Jungle” in the running this year — will throw an inaugural post-Globes celebration (having gained some practice, with its first-time Emmy bash last fall). The move seems fitting, in a year when digital (namely, Netflix) surpasses networks with the most nominations, breaking HBO’s 14-year streak of domination and leading the TV race. »
