10 July 2017 2:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Italian actress Elsa Martinelli, who starred opposite Kirk Douglas in 1955 western “The Indian Fighter” and went on to gain international recognition working, among others, with directors Mario Monicelli, Roger Vadim, Orson Welles, Howard Hawkes, and Elio Petri died on July 8 in Rome.

Martinelli in 1954 made her acting debut in Stendhal adaptation “Le Rouge et le Noir,” directed by France’s Claude Autant-Lara.

Emmy Contenders 2017: Lead Actor in a Comedy

31 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It remains to be seen if anyone can break Jeffrey Tambor’s two-year winning streak for “Transparent,” but there’s a formidable group that will make a strong effort. In fact, this category could be an exact repeat of last year’s lineup, with Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”), Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Will Forte (“The Last Man On Earth”), William H. Macy (“Shameless”), and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) all eligible. But it’s likely at least one will be displaced by Donald Glover’s star turn on the FX comedy “Atlanta,” which won dual Golden Globe Awards for best comedy series and comedy actor this year. Glover has been busy at work on the high-profile Han Solo prequel, which certainly puts him front and center in voters’ minds. But never count out Jim Parsons, who could return for his work on “The Big Bang Theory,” which has already landed him four Emmys. And »

Exclusive: How Emily Hampshire's Breakout TV Roles Are Messing Up Her Dating Life

18 May 2017 8:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sometimes Emily Hampshire slips into character during dates.

Things get awkward, the Canadian actress tells Et, when her courter suddenly realizes that she's not Stevie Budd, the deadpan, buttoned-up motel clerk she hilariously portrays on Pop TV's Schitt's Creek, which just finished airing a critically acclaimed third season earlier this year. In fact, Hampshire, who frequently breaks into uproarious giggle fits during our freewheeling interview, couldn't be more infectiously giddy and refreshingly forthcoming.

"I feel bad that I'm not Stevie for them, that I'm not as cool as Stevie," the 35-year-old actress says. "They meet me and they're like, 'Oh, you're way more animated than Stevie is.' I can hear the disappointment in their voice."

That's when, she acknowledges, "I try to overcompensate for not being Stevie."

So then they get Jennifer Goines, the brainy but unhinged heroine she plays on Syfy's 12 Monkeys. If you know Jennifer, you know this means Hampshire's dates end with »

Albert Einstein, Comedy Icon? 9 Examples of How Film and TV Depict His Lighter Side

25 April 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The legacy of Albert Einstein cannot be overstated — even when we take the scientist’s accomplishments for granted, he’s one of our planet’s most famous pop culture figures, recognizable across generations. The way he’s been depicted on screen has ranged from well-researched takes on the man’s life, such as Nat Geo Channel’s new anthology series “Genius,” premiering today, to, shall we say, somewhat more out-there fare.

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersCelebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersAdriana Floridia4/20/2017 9:40:00 Am

Today is National Look-Alike day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.

Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us. 

The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.

Pop is a TV Network for Your Sense of Nostalgia

14 April 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I hope you like 80s set sitcoms and boyband reality shows.The Goldbergs

Some networks like murder, others love reality drama, and some want to make you wax poetic about the good old days. Pop — formerly the TV Guide Channel — is capitalizing on the latter. Namely, your fond memories of the past. First, they focused on your love of boy bands through the unscripted series Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block. Then, they remembered how much you loved Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy in Best in Show and teamed them up for the Arrested Development-like Schitt’s Creek. Now, they are bringing the third highest rated comedy series, itself an exploration in 80s nostalgia, The Goldbergs to their lineup.

Pop Network grew its audience through reruns of classic 90s television. As Schwartz described their target audience:

“We target this audience, modern grown-ups, people who grew up in the 1990s, so »

Cable’s Pop Will Dip Into Drama, Pick Up ‘The Goldbergs’

13 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The executives behind Pop, the young cable outlet backed by Lionsgate and CBS, think rival networks might be set to burst.

As more new-tech distributors seek to offer narrower “bundles” of content to subscribers eager to get video content on demand, Brad Schwartz believes there will be less room for TV outlets that cannot lure a robust, passionate audience. “I think we are going to see a culling of the herd when it comes to cable networks,” said Schwartz,  Pop’s president. “People are going to have to pick and choose the content they want to invest in. We are going to be one of those networks left standing. Over the next one to three years, there will be more channels that go away.”

He cites Viacom’s recent decision to focus on six core networks and NBCUniversal’s recent move to scrap cable networks Esquire and Cloo as evidence of the trend. Distributors »

Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber

Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Michael Kennedy3/15/2017 10:02:00 Am

A few years ago, an eclectic team of American and Canadian filmmakers teamed up for Goon. The Canadian comedy told the story of Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott), a bouncer turned minor league hockey enforcer, and the bruised and bloodied ice warriors that fought with and against him.

Canadian hockey fan Jay Baruchel co-wrote the script and played Doug’s friend Pat, while other Canucks like Alison Pill, Eugene Levy and Marc-André Grondin rounded out the cast. Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque even had a cameo. But one of the most unexpected cast members may have been American Liev Schreiber (Spotlight, TV’s Ray Donovan) as enforcer Ross “The Boss” Rhea. »
