That was fast, girl! It may only be two weeks since Lena Headey confirmed the birth of her baby girl. But that was plenty of time for the Game of Thrones star to get back into pretty impressive shape. The 41-year-old actress was recently spotted enjoying a round of miniature golf with friends in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Lo and behold, photographers were able to capture her post-baby body in clear view. Wearing ripped denim jeans, Adidas sneakers and a white tank-top, Headey looked comfortable and stylish for a summer day out. She completed her look with a fedora and bold sunglasses. "Hello peeps. All good," Headey recently wrote on Twitter when announcing her baby's arrival. "Just »

24 July 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Wilson's bid for political power is threatened by his voracious sexual appetite in the trailer for Zipper.

The upcoming political drama casts Fargo's Wilson as popular Southern prosecutor Sam Ellis, whose Congressional bid could put him on the fast track to greatness.

There are only two problems – Sam has a compulsive desire to sleep with high-priced call girls and a dangerous fascination with a young intern (Dianna Agron).

Zipper is produced by Academy Award-nominated Black Swan filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.

Among the supporting cast members who have a hand in Sam's rise and fall are Lena Headey, John Cho, Ray Winstone and Richard Dreyfuss.

Zipper bows on August 28 in Us cinemas. A UK release is yet to be set. »

First Trailer For Patrick Wilson's Zipper

22 July 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In what promises to be a gripping study of power and addiction, Patrick Wilson takes the lead in Zipper as a universally loved politician on a seemingly non-stop rise to the top. But he finds everything falling down around him as his ‘zipper problem’, i.e. his nasty habit of sleeping with scores of women who are not his wife (Lena Heady), catches up with him. Really, Wilson is perfect for the lead role. Not only does he a great actor,  he has the sort of charisma that demands all eyes are on him, as well as the chops to delve into the darker parts of his character. On top of that, he his surrounded by a stellar cast, including Heady, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ray Winstone, which all adds up to an absolutely fascinating political trailer. Released: 28th August »

Patrick Wilson Plays a Sex-Addicted Politician in Trailer for 'Zipper'

22 July 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I set out to help people, I never said I was better than them..." Alchemy has debuted the trailer for the sex thriller Zipper, which dramatizes the sexual urges of a man on the cusp of a bright future. Patrick Wilson stars as a politician on the rise who ends up losing everything "due to his inability to fight off his obsessive temptation for other women." This is a thriller because they really play up the angle of "look how deadly this can be to your life!" with all the endless infidelity. The cast also includes Lena Headey, Dianna Agron, Alexandra Breckenridge, Richard Dreyfuss, John Cho and Ray Winstone. This looks interesting, but at the same time I'd kind of rather just go back and watch Joe Carnahan's Stretch again. Give it a watch. Here's the first official trailer for Mora Stephens' Zipper, in high def on Apple »

Patrick Wilson Learns Politics and Sex Don't Mix in 'Zipper' Trailer

22 July 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You'd think politicians would've learned by now to keep their pants on. And yet, in this new "Zipper" trailer, Patrick Wilson's political career starts to come undone because he can't do that.

Wilson's Sam Ellis is a prosecutor running for office who has it all - gorgeous wife (Lena Headey), cute kids, and a bright future in politics. Except he's got a "zipper problem," as his advisor (Richard Dreyfuss) dubs it.

Watch the trailer.

Wilson is perfectly cast as a charming, good-looking, seemingly good guy who's got the clean-cut image that campaign managers drool over. But then he gets involved with high-class escorts, and his dreams threaten to go down the drain. Headey also looks to give a great performance as his ambitious wife, who won't let him ruin his chances without a fight.

"Zipper" hits theaters and On Demand August 28.

Read More: Meet the 2015 Sundance Filmmakers #53: Mora Stephens Wants to Start a Conversation About Political Scandals with 'Zipper' Mora Stephens' provocative political drama "Zipper" is gearing up for its nationwide release. The star-studded film, headlined by Patrick Wilson and featuring Lena Headey and Richard Dreyfuss in supporting roles, premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival before Alchemy acquired the film for North American distribution. The film drew buzz for its unconventional approach to the well-explored topic of political sex scandals. Wilson stars in "Zipper" as Sam Ellis, a hotshot federal prosecutor on the cusp of a bright political future whose one-time experience with an escort turns into a growing addiction that threatens to destroy his life, family and career. The film is a deliberately insular experience, told from "inside the experience of the candidate himself," according to Stephens.  Alchemy has just »

As per the recently announced Emmy nominations (you can check out the list here), Clarke and Heady have both been nominated for Supporting Actress in a Drama (as Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, respectively).

Emmy Nominations 2015 Best and Worst: 'Empire' diss, Amy Schumer joy and more

16 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As HitFix's own Alan Sepinwall wrote this morning, "the only way to look at each year's Emmy nominations is to treat them like the theme song from "The Facts of Life." You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both, and there you have this year's Emmy nominees list."  Sadly, and perhaps more than any other awards event, there is always a good deal of bad.  But, before we walk down that road how about some obvious celebrations? After getting snubbed for her incredible work in "Orphan Black" over the past two years, Tatiana Maslany finally earned her first nomination for Lead Actress in a Drama Series.  Other great performances didn't go unnoticed as Emilia Clarke and Lena Heady both landed deserved nods in the Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category for "Game of Thrones."  "Mad Men" went out in style with a massive 11 nominations (matched »

28 Reasons You Love to Hate Cersei Lannister

16 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Game of Thrones season five is over, and Cersei has the ultimate Walk of Shame. But as much as she deserves some justice, we have also loved how deliciously wicked Cersei Lannister is. Don't get me wrong - she's a bad person with a shocking streak of ugliness, but that's what makes her so watchable. Thanks to Lena Headey's Emmy-nominated performance, Cersei has even had some moments that elicit sympathy and pity - you know, right before she does something totally awful. But for all those moments where she's just fun to watch, we give Cersei a round of applause - and this tribute to her wicked, wicked ways. »
