When AMC announced they were splitting the final season of Mad Men into two seven-episodes halves, similar to what had been done with Breaking Bad in its last two years, I could only roll my eyes in disdain. The splitting of cable drama seasons is often an annoyance, and while it can work out fine with some series – The Walking Dead and its enormous fanbase seem to have adjusted just fine to the strategy over the years, in part because they’ve being doing it since the second season – it feels especially cumbersome and unnecessary when imposed upon the final years of a long-running drama that has long-since established a workable format.
It’s easy to forget that Breaking Bad seriously struggled with the half-length season format in its 2012 episodes, given how utterly brilliant the final eight hours were in 2013, but where Vince Gilligan and company had so carefully cultivated »

The latest Tom Cruise action film, “Edge of Tomorrow,” topped the national home video sales charts the week ending Oct. 12, bumping the prior week’s top seller, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” from Paramount Pictures, to No. 2.
“Edge of Tomorrow,” from Warner Bros., earned just over $100 million in U.S. theaters. The film is one of four new releases that debuted in the top five on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined.
Walt Disney Studios’ “Sleeping Beauty,” newly released in an extras-packed “Diamond Edition,” bowed at No. 3. The Diamond edition of the 1959 animated classic includes the film on Blu-ray Disc, standard DVD and Digital HD.

Thanks to its shortened 13-episode run, Parks and Recreation won't be back until next year, but we have a sneak peek at the seventh (and final) season now! Adam Scott, Amy Poehler, and Aubrey Plaza were spotted filming the comedy in Los Angeles this week. If you recall, the final minutes of last season featured a time jump, plus Jon Hamm. The last season will supposedly all take place three years in the future, which means we're looking at future Leslie, future Ben, and future April. Take a look! »
We can run, we can hide, but we will never be able to escape celebrity nude photos. Actually, would we even want to? Whether celebrities leak their own photos to show us what they really got goin’ on or claim to be the victims of computer hacking, none of us can deny that once these photos are out there, it’s hard to look away. But why are the headlines always so focused on the ladies?
While Jennifer Lawrence has been the focus of August’s celebrity photo hacking scandal, male celebrities also have experience when it comes to nude leaks. Thanks to cameras, the Internet, and oftentimes, their own stupidity, we have seen a lot more of male stars than they may have bargained for. Of course, while we can never truly say if photos are legit — unless these guys pull a Chris Brown or Kanye West, both of »

In the third episode of "Kingdom," DirecTV's new drama series set in the world of mixed martial arts, one of the main characters gives an impromptu boxing lesson to his often-bullied roommate. When the roommate is reluctant to punch him in the face, our hero cheerfully insists, "Look, I get punched in the face for a living. This is not going to hurt me." This is the most important thing to note about the men of "Kingdom," whether their storylines directly involve Mma or not. In a tumultuous world, being hit, and hitting back, is the one constant in their lives — and not just when they're in the cage. When a problem presents itself, their first, second and third impulse is to clench their fists and find a way to punch back. Created by Byron Belasco, "Kingdom" is DirecTV's latest attempt to use its Audience Network (the first episode debuts »

Jb Bernstein, the sports agent who famously scouted cricket players from India to take a shot in Major League baseball, inspired the feature film Million Dollar Arm.
Jb Bernstein On 'Million Dollar Arm'
Bernstein believes that Million Dollar Arm, directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay by Thomas McCarthy, does a more than fair job of capturing the essence of his story and the journey of the two young men he recruited. “It's not a documentary, but as far as true stories go, this one is pretty accurate,” Bernstein told uInterview exclusively. “I know most movies take true stories and take pieces of the story and build the movie around it. But really all the major scenes in the movie pretty much happened.”

Earlier in the week it was reported that Marvel Studios had given up on its number one choice for the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, ending negotiations with Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) and offering the role to Ethan Hawke, star of Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson’s Sinister.
Well, Deadline is now reporting that Phoenix is indeed out of contention for the lead, but before Ethan Hawke fans get too excited, the site is also stating that rumours of Hawkes’ casting “is speculation run wild.”
So, it looks like Marvel is back to square one in its search for Doctor Strange, with the likes of Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), Johnny Depp (The Lone Ranger), Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) all having previously been linked to the role.

One of these days, Marvel Studios will announce who will play Doctor Strange in their highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure. Until that day comes, all we have are rumors, with the latest unconfirmed report revealing that Ethan Hawke has been offered the title character.
This Is Infamous claims that Marvel wasn't able to come to terms with Joaquin Phoenix, who has been in talks for the role since July. The studio reportedly offered the role to Ethan Hawke on Friday, which he accepted over the weekend, with negotiations currently happening for a six-picture deal.
The report hasn't been confirmed by Marvel, but if it turns out to be true, Ethan Hawke will be reunited with Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson, following their 2012 thriller Sinister. We reported in August that screenwriter Jon Spaihts has discarded all of the previous screenplay drafts, crafting a new tale that will not delve into Doctor Strange's origins, »
I have a feeling that in the future when I create a "Fact Vs. Fiction" article based on all of the Doctor Strange movie rumors I'll be putting everything from This Is Infamous into the fiction category. This website just doesn't know when to quit. While creditable sites are claiming Joaquin Phoenix ("The Master") is still Marvel's top choice for the role of Doctor Stephen Strange, This Is Infamous has already claimed in a short period of time that Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") and Jack Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") were close to taking the part. Today, they have changed their tune once again and claim Marvel has offered the role to Training Day star Ethan Hawke. After working their hardest to try to convince Joaquin Phoenix that he’s the right fit for Doctor Strange, it appears Marvel Studios has moved on after coming to terms with the fact that that »

Black Mirror, British satirist Charlie Brooker’s groundbreaking dystopian anthology series — which, if you haven't seen it, you should — is getting a very special guest. Deadline reports that Jon Hamm will star in a one-off, 90-minute Christmas special that also features Game of Thrones’s Oona Chaplin. Hamm called himself a “massive fan" of the show, saying, "Its dark humor and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer, and I’m honored that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.” According to Britain’s Channel 4, it will be “the most mind-bending episode yet," showcasing three interwoven stories of "Yuletide techno-paranoia,” with Hamm appearing in all three. Judging by Don's level of techno-paranoia that one time Sc&P got a new computer, this should be right up his alley. »

With the help of "Frozen" characters coming onboard, the fourth season premiere of ABC's fantasy drama "Once Upon a Time" hit a two year high with 9.3 million viewers and a 3.4 rating - up 30% in last year's Live+Same Day results.
The results weren't so pleasant for ABC's other shows - "Resurrection" fell from a 3.8 for its mid-season premiere to a 2.2 for its second season bow. The fourth season of "Revenge" similarly plummeted with a 1.4 rating - down from 2.4 for last season's premiere. [Source: The Live Feed]

In the mood for some bizarre but brilliant casting news? Good. Because Mad Men star Jon Hamm is teaming up with Charlie Brooker for Channel 4’s Black Mirror Christmas Special. And if your brain wasn’t already boggled enough, it transpires Hamm is a fan of the skewed anthology series, which so far has brought us a sexual dilemma for the Prime Minister involving a barnyard animal and Hayley Atwell getting hooked on a dead boyfriend. The actor has issued the following statement:
I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Black Mirror Christmas Special. I have been a massive fan of the show since its inception… (its) dark humour and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer and I’m honoured that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. »

A computer in the Sterling Cooper & Partners office created some surreal situations on Mad Men this past season, but Jon Hamm's not done with "techno-phobia." Hamm will star alongside Game of Thrones's Oona Chaplin and actor Rafe Spall in the upcoming Christmas special of the British anthology series Black Mirror, Channel 4 announced. EW television critic Melissa Maerz called Black Mirror "the Twilight Zone of our time," and according to Channel 4, the 90-minute special will concern "three interwoven stories of Yuletide techno-paranoia." Hamm's character will be a figure within all three. "I am beyond thrilled to be »
