Why Christopher Meloni Didn't Want Benson and Stabler to End Up Together on 'Law & Order: Svu'

31 March 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Christopher Meloni remains very proud of his role on Law & Order: Svu as Detective Elliot Stabler, but he disagrees with the show's diehard fans on one fundamental thing: Stabler and Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson definitely did not belong together, he says.  Meloni told James Lipton on Thursday's episode of Inside the Actors Studio that while fans often pulled for a relationship to happen between their characters, the show's cast and crew "always knew it would have been the death knell of that relationship."  We "needed to keep that line taut but very clear," Meloni said.

Why Didn't Benson and Stabler Ever Get Together on Law & Order: Svu? Christopher Meloni Explains

31 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Christopher Meloni may have left Law & Order: Svu years ago, but the bond he has with his former TV partner Mariska Hargitay runs deep still to this day. In a bonus clip from his interview with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio, Meloni opens up about working with Hargitay for those 12 seasons of Svu and reveals why the writers never "went there" with Detectives Stabler and Benson. "She was always ready for anything new…There was always an unspoken shorthand to what we were doing. That makes it just so much easier, and off camera as well," Meloni said. "There's a lot to be said for that when you're working with someone for 16 hours a day, you better get along when the cameras »

Watch: Christopher Meloni Contrasts Roles on ‘Oz’ and ‘Svu’

22 March 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Christopher Meloni once played a serial rapist by day and a special victims detective by night. Meloni talked about the striking dichotomy between his roles on “Oz” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” with “Inside the Actor’s Studio” host James Lipton. The actor portrayed the roles of prisoner Chris Keller and officer Elliot Stabler simultaneously for a few years. “I knew I was the luckiest actor in New York City,” Meloni said. “To be a working actor in New York City is good enough. To have a steady gig in New York City is a dream come true. To have two, which are awesome shows—forget about it.” Meloni said it wasn’t easy playing too different characters on opposite sides of the law on the same day. He mentioned working on the set of “Oz” from 6 a.m. until noon, playing a prisoner who kills and sodomizes people. »

The Walking Dead without Maggie Greene? There was a moment when Lauren Cohan almost called it quits, the actress revealed. While sitting down with James Lipton and other cast members on Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio, Cohan said the season three scene where she had to perform a c-section on Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) almost sent her packing. After reading the script, she said she consulted her on-screen husband Steven Yeun. "I knock on Steven's door and I said I have to leave the show, I don't think I can do it," she admitted. "It affects you so deeply to the core to touch on—to dive into so much of this material and then I realized that's why I have to do it because the outcome of »

21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards Full Winners List Plus Photos

18 January 2016 9:44 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last night I had a chance to attend the 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards and I wanted to share with you readers some photos I got to take at the event.

It was pretty cool to actually hang out and chat with Aziz Ansari and how funny that he still remembered our video interview while he was promoting "30 Mintues or Less," which you can see Here.

I also got a chance to talk to J.J. Abrams and told him how smart it was for his company Bad Robot Productions to drop the "10 Cloverfield Lane" trailer.

Abrams said:

"I really can't wait for you to see it."

Check out the pics below and all the winners from the event. Overall I had a great time and can't wait till next year.

The Winners Of The 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards

17 January 2016 4:47 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards have just concluded and there’s really only one thing to say about it: it was a rather dull and predictable night, with Spotlight taking Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Acting Ensemble exactly as expected. However, it was also a rather peculiar night because it seems like they enjoyed George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road much, much more, giving the film nine awards out of its 13 nominations, including Best Director, Best Editing, Best Production Design, and Best Action Film.

It was a night of highs and lows that included Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) and Brie Larson (Room) winning Best Actor and Best Actress for their brilliant performances, while Sylvester Stallone took yet another award away from far more deserving nominees like Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, and Michael Shannon.

Speaking of lows, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (the group responsible for these »

David Bowie's 1998 Proust questionnaire is hilarious

11 January 2016 5:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though the Proust questionnaire is perhaps most familiar to viewers of French TV host Bernard Pivot, who administered the questionnaire to guests in the 1970s and '80s, viewers of Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio know that host James Lipton asks his own versions of the questions too. In 1998, the late David Bowie answered the questions for a Vanity Fair piece. Predictably, his answers are perfect.   What is your idea of perfect happiness? Reading. What is your most marked characteristic? Getting a word in edgewise. What do you consider your greatest achievement? Discovering morning. What is your greatest fear? Converting kilometers to miles. What historical figure do you most identify with? Santa Claus. Which living person do you most admire? Elvis. Who are your heroes in real life? The consumer. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself? While in New York, tolerance. Outside New York, intolerance. What is »
