Interview: 'Mad Men' star John Slattery reflects on Roger Sterling's journey

31 March 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The following article contains a spoiler about the upcoming second half of the "Mad Men" season. It's not a big spoiler. It's about facial hair. But I feel like warning you anyway, given how secretive Matt Weiner and the "Mad Men" team are about even the least significant of spoilers. The last seven "Mad Men" episodes begin to roll out on Sunday, April 5 and other than that facial hair spoiler, there's no point in trying to get anybody to talk about where things are headed. But we were able to talk about where we've been, so if you haven't seen the 2014 episodes, that's spoiled here. Instead, when I sat down with John Slattery last week, we talked about where we left Roger Sterling last year, a seven-episode arc that saw the death of his professional mentor, the emotional loss of his daughter to a cult and the character's finale business »

Matt Weiner: Finale’s Premiere Is First-Ever ‘Mad Men’ Convention

26 March 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mad Men,” the critically acclaimed television series that popularized everything from period dramas to pear-shaped figures, is coming to an end. To celebrate the launch of the series’  final seven episodes, AMC and Lionsgate TV hosted a high-fashion Black & Red Ball at downtown Los Angeles’ Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Wednesday night that was only befitting the stylish show known for highballs, hemlines and hijinks in the 1960s advertising world.

“‘Mad Men’ has changed the lives of hundreds of men and women who created 92 hours; 92 successful one-hour works of art,” AMC president and g.m. Charlie Collier said before the screening of the first of the final episodes, as he called to the stage the writers, stars and many production department heads responsible for bringing creator Matthew Weiner’s series to the screen.

Weiner, who received a standing ovation upon taking the stage, opened his speech by joking that “people will stand for anything. »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

This Mad Men Final Season Teaser Is Making Us Sad (Video)

23 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Does it really have to end? The second trailer for Mad Men's final episodes was released Sunday night during the Oscars, and after seven seasons and countless hangovers with Don Draper and Co., we're still not quite ready to say goodbye. As Don narrates a heartfelt pitch about nostalgia (from the Kodak commercial pitch during season one), we see flashbacks of some of the greatest moments throughout the show's history. There's Don (Jon Hamm), hungover on the floor of Sterling-Cooper, being awoken by his timid new assistant, Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss, rocking the short bangs!). There's Roger (John Slattery »

Emmys change eligibility rules, but does that solve all the category confusion?

20 February 2015 10:59 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As scripted television programming has both exploded and evolved rapidly over the last few years, the Emmys have seemed at a loss for how to keep up. What's a drama these days? What's a comedy? What's a miniseries? Who's a guest star? How can we make room for all the great shows being made at the same time? For a while, it seemed as if the Television Academy was content to keep the same eligibility rules in place, even if that led to confusing situations like "Fargo" and "American Horror Story" competing as miniseries while "True Detective" competed as a drama, or "Orange Is the New Black" competing in the comedy categories against the likes of "Modern Family" and "Big Bang Theory." Today, though, the Academy announced a round of changes to their rules which, according to the press release, "reflect the increasingly varied and expanding television landscape." Some of the changes seem very smart, »

19 February 2015 2:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Aw sookie sookie now! The tagline for Mad Men's final seven episodes reads, "The Party's Over," but a new trailer suggests it's actually in full swing. It's the '70s baby. Diana Ross's sultry "Love Hangover" provides the background for a summer Hamptons get-together, and the gang's all there. Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) is looking better than ever - and is Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) suddenly noticing her again? Remember he is the father of the child she gave up for adoption back in season 1; plus, he's divorced now, so … (It would be interesting if that came back full circle. »

AFI Awards Bring Out Hollywood Heavyweights To Celebrate Best In Film And TV

9 January 2015 6:39 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: I can’t think of another event in the long slog of awards season that is more fun and meaningful than the annual AFI Awards luncheon, held each year in a fairly intimate space at the Four Seasons. Well, it is about as intimate as you can get when you have to squeeze 10 tables for the top television programs of the year and 10 for the top movies. Actually make that 11 for motion pictures. This year, for the first time since its inception, AFI had a mathematical tie. AFI CEO and President Bob Gazzale, who hosted the afternoon, told me later they originally thought about breaking that tie, but the selection committee headed by Leonard Maltin said no. It’s indicative of the wide-open race this year that there would be more choices than ever, and in the expertly chosen »

Primetime Musical ‘Galavant’ Reps Bold Venture for ABC

6 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Producing a TV series with original songs in every episode is always an ambitious undertaking. And precious few of them have succeeded.

ABC’s landmark Robert Morse musical “That’s Life” (1968) managed to last one season, NBC’s “Smash” (2012-13) limped along for two, while ABC’s infamous “Cop Rock” (1990) managed just 11 episodes.

With “Galavant,” which debuted Jan. 4 in the “Once Upon a Time” slot, ABC jumps back into the risky musical business with some very high-powered talent. Billed as “a medieval musical fairy tale,” it offers a handsome knight (Joshua Sasse) who teams up with a princess (Karen David) to win back his true love (Mallory Jansen) from the evil king (Timothy Omundson) who has married her.

The songs are by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, best known for his Disney scores “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” and others; and lyricist Glenn Slater, Menken’s songwriting partner on Disney’s “Tangled” and, »
