Watch: First Trailer For Spy Thriller 'Our Kind Of Traitor' Starring Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris & Stellan Skarsgard

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Audiences just can’t get enough of spies, it seems: last year saw a wealth of different super-agents on screen, from long-running heroes James Bond and Ethan Hunt, to fresher faces from “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Spy,” to Oscar nominee “Bridge Of Spies,” and mostly with great success financially. This year is a little quieter, but not by much, with “The Brothers Grimsby” and “Jason Bourne” among those on the way, but we’re also seeing a resurgence of one of the kings of the genre, author John Le Carre. The success of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” a few years ago made the veteran author hot again, and surprisingly strong box office for “A Most Wanted Man” helped to, so we’re soon to get a couple more. First up is Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie in miniseries adaptation “The Night Manager,” and soon to follow is big-screen outing “Our Kind Of Traitor, »

"There Was Not A Clear Understanding Of The Kind Of Movie We Were Making": Susanne Bier Gets Candid About 'Serena'

8 February 2016 10:07 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How could it have gone so wrong? That was the question many were asking about "Serena." From any perspective, it looked like a no-brainer success, with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper taking the lead roles in a Depression-era drama based on the best-selling book by Ron Rash. However, it seems from the moment cameras rolled in 2012, something was off. The buzz on the picture was not good; there were rumblings of behind-the-scenes turmoil; and two years later, the movie quietly premiered at the BFI London Film Festival, and the reviews were not kind. Director Susanne Bier ("After The Wedding," "In A Better World") survived the production, and is at the helm of highly anticipated upcoming series "The Night Manager" starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie. But when asked about "Serena" by Variety, the filmmaker was candid about what led to the film's failure.  Read More: BFI London Film Festival Review: Susanne Bier's. »

Dramatic licence: broadcasters buy into big-budget TV boom

6 February 2016 2:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Demand for television drama is surging, and the BBC, ITV and their online rivals are rushing to meet it

There will be more TV drama on British screens than ever before in 2016 as broadcasters and streaming services seek to satisfy a growing public appetite with shows such as royal epic The Crown and the return of 90s favourite Cold Feet.

Big-budget shows such as BBC 1’s The Night Manager, starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston in an adaptation of the John le Carré novel, kick off a year in which the BBC and ITV have increased their drama output to meet demand – driven partly by more people watching television on mobile devices, but helped by tax breaks that means British production companies can now spend more on their shows.

It’s a golden era for television, not just drama.

5 February 2016 10:03 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of Scandinavia’s top directors, Susanne Bier was on hand at the Goteborg Film Festival to receive the Dragon Honorary Award. The helmer, who earned an Oscar nom for “After the Wedding” and won an Oscar for “In a Better World,” is now making her TV debut with the British-American spy series “The Night Manager,” which is based on John le Carré’s novel and stars Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman.

I never thought it’d be so simple for former Drake & Josh stars Josh Peck and Drake Bell to reunite — but they found a way, they found a wa-ay.

Channing Tatum Whispers Sweet Candy Heart Nothings in Lucky Lady’s Ear (Video)

4 February 2016 6:57 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If you’re looking for the luckiest lady in all the land, her name is Jennifer, and she’s a student in around Hollywood. Jimmy Kimmel sent security guard Guillermo out to Hollywood Boulevard on Wednesday night to find a valentine for guest Channing Tatum. Because, you know, Magic Mike has a really hard time with the women. Jennifer proved game, as she took a (love) seat in-studio and cuddled up with the “Hail, Caesar!” star. The courtship simply involved the actor reading and feeding those gross candy hearts to his sudden snuggle bunny. Also Read: Hugh Laurie's Dr. House »

House, ER: Doctors 'Reunite' for Jimmy Kimmel Live

3 February 2016 5:26 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Is there a doctor in the room? What about two? Two of the top former TV doctors, George Clooney and Hugh Laurie, "reunited" on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week.

Clooney played Dr. Doug Ross on the NBC medical drama ER for five seasons while Laurie played the title character, Dr. Gregory House, on Fox's House for eight seasons before it was cancelled in 2012.

'Jimmy Kimmel Live' staged a long-awaited 'ER' reunion of one (plus Dr. House)

3 February 2016 8:32 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jimmy Kimmel sees your Friends reunion and raises you a surprise ER reunion.  There's just one problem: the only ER cast member who showed up was George Clooney (Julianna Margulies was busy filming The Good WifeNoah Wyle had Taco Tuesday night with family, Eriq La Salle had jury duty, Anthony Edwards was at SoulCycle, and Sherry Stringfield couldn't get an Uber). But Clooney wasn't alone on stage, for Kimmel played his patient and Hugh Laurie limped in to assist as Dr. House (albeit missing his trademark stubble). I have a feeling Kimmel added a little surprise to the sketch, based on Clooney and Laurie's reaction to whatever was under the sheet and Laurie's inability to keep it together for most of the rest of it.  »

This Is the ER and House Crossover You Never Knew You Needed

3 February 2016 8:08 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before George Clooney was an A-list movie star killing it on the red carpet and smashing the box office with hit after hit, he was ER's hottest surgeon: Dr. Doug Ross. In an effort to drum up some nostalgia for the beloved medical drama, Jimmy Kimmel arranged an epic reunion of the show's cast during Clooney's appearance on the talk show on Tuesday night. While sadly no one showed (damn you, Julianna Margulies), Kimmel was able to get a fellow former TV doctor to join in the fun: Hugh Laurie, aka perpetual sourpuss Dr. Gregory House. Check out their hilarious interaction above! »

George Clooney showed up for an “E.R.” reunion on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” — the only problem was, no one else did.

Watch George Clooney's One-Man 'ER' Reunion on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

3 February 2016 7:08 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

What if you threw a cast reunion for a very popular drama, and only its biggest star showed up? That's exactly what happened on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. Usually when any beloved TV show or movie cast gets back together, it's the leading man that doesn't show up. The reverse happened when it came to getting the old ER gang back together. George Clooney was game to get his Dr. Doug Ross back on. But no one else could make it!

George Clooney donned his signature scrubs that made him famous. He played Dr. Ross on the first five seasons of ER, and after a long career of struggling to get a foothold in Hollywood, he went onto become a Hollywood legend. In the so-called ER reunion skit, Dr. Ross arrives to help out patient Jimmy Kimmel, who has lost a lot of blood and requires immediate medical attention. »

Hugh Laurie Saves George Clooney's 'E.R.' Reunion on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

3 February 2016 7:03 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Get these two their own buddy movie, stat! George Clooney was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to promote "Hail, Caesar!" and they attempted a last-minute "E.R." reunion sketch. However, no one from the original cast showed up except Clooney, so Kimmel had to call in "House" alum Hugh Laurie to play doctor backup. It was glorious. Glorious!

First, Kimmel broke character as the patient to apologize to Clooney for the lack of "E.R." co-stars.

Clooney: "Julianna Margulies?"

Kimmel: "Yeah, she's filming 'The Good Wife.' She couldn't make it."

Clooney: "Noah Wylie?"

Kimmel: "He wanted to be here, but I guess he's got a thing with his family, Taco Tuesday."

Clooney: "Eriq La Salle?"

Kimmel: "Oh no, Eriq La Salle had jury duty."

Kimmel offered to cancel, but Clooney said, "No, when George Clooney commits to an E.R. sequel..." Kimmel cut in, "... reunion?" and Clooney broke the fourth wall to correct himself. »
