Jon Hamm to Join Richard Linklater's Incredible Mr. Limpet Remake

12 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Mad Men star Jon Hamm is looking to join the remake of the 1964 Don Knotts film, The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Other actors in talks to come on board include Kevin Hart, Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad, and comedy duo Key & Peele. If cast they will join Zach Galifianakis.

The movie is being directed by Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, After Midnight) from a script based on the novel by Theodore Pratt. Warner Bros. has been trying to get this movie made for the last 20 years, and it looks like it's finally coming together. 

The original story followed "an everyman who is transformed into a fish and goes on to fight Nazis." In this new version, Galifianakis is expected to play Larry Limpet, "a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he's turned into a fish, Limpet sets out on an adventure to save his town and the sea world, »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (July 12)

12 July 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s Saturday, so you know what that means! It’s time for the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief, where we bring you the hottest movie and television related news to hit the web over the last week. In the last installment I mentioned that the Hollywood news cycle was slowing down a bit… but that has seemingly changed this week, as we have a lot to talk about today!

These recaps tend to be a bit superhero and blockbuster heavy, but this week Tinseltown gave us a bit more to work with, creating a more evenly balanced array of news items to talk about. On one end of the spectrum we have updates on Ridley Scott’s next biblical epic, and the upcoming spin-off of The Conjuring (which gives me nightmares from the premise alone). Then we’ve got news about TV shows like True Detective, »

Price: DVD $Tba, Blu-ray $Tba

Jon Hamm (TV’s Mad Men) finds talent in an unusual place in Million Dollar Arm.

The sports movie is based on the true story of sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) whose career is not going well.

Emmy bait: Watch nominees in 25 of the year's best TV scenes

11 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.

EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »

The 2014 Emmy Award Nominations

10 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Unsurprisingly, HBO leads this year's nominees for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The network's early days of AIDS telemovie "The Normal Heart" dominated its categories with a full nine nominations amongst the major awards. Their fantasy series "Game of Thrones" scored the most nominations of any program overall - six for the major awards and a further thirteen amongst the technical awards.

Regarding the major awards, FX's "Fargo" was the show in front with eight nominations; "Breaking Bad," "Orange is the New Black," "House of Cards" and "Downton Abbey" were next with seven; "Game of Thrones," "Modern Family" and "American Horror Story: Coven" all scored six; "True Detective" and "Sherlock" got five each; "The Good Wife," "Mad Men" and "Veep" nabbed four apiece; and "Luther," "Masters of Sex," "Silicon Valley," "Scandal" and "Louie" all scored three each.

66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.

Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.

I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

Which Leading Actor Will Beat Jon Hamm for an Emmy This Year?

10 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and Jon Hamm has again been nominated for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his riveting work on Mad Men. This is his seventh nomination in the category, and the nods are all richly deserved. Except …  Jon Hamm has never won. (He's been nominated three times for his guest work on 30 Rock, too. And he didn't win those times, either.) Might this be his year? Let's look at the competition.Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad Why Cranston might win: Emmy voters have been in Cranston's corner since the get-go. His first win for his portrayal of Walter White came in 2008, when Bb was not on many people's radar, and he won twice more since then. This is Breaking Bad's final hurrah, so voters might be swayed by the fact that this is their last chance to honor the one who knocks. »

2014 Emmy Award Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47.

Double Take: Hollywood Hotties With Older Movie Star Doppelgangers

10 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

Every generation thinks that their movie stars are the hottest, the sexiest, the most lust-worthy (ask your mom about Dustin Hoffman in 1968 and prepare to be shocked). But there’s nothing new in Hollywood — certainly not when it comes to its pin-ups. What was once considered attractive always come back full circle.

Take Rob Lowe, for example. He was arguably the most beautiful young actor in 1984. Twenty years later, moviedom is overrun with Lowe-lookalikes (Ian Somerholder and Zac Efron, to name a few). You think Jon Hamm‘s slicked-back black hair and dapper rogue swag is delicious? So did women in the 1940′s, when they were fantasizing about Cary Grant. Everything old is new again, kids.

Here, we compare some of today’s sexiest male celebs with their older movie star lookalikes. Some might surprise you!
