27 May 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"You know, I wrote a list of all the horrific things that happened to Jimmy and I thought I'd read them off real quick," says Evan Peters at the tail-end of our video chat (watch below) about the FX limited series "American Horror Story: Freak Show." He goes on to list about two dozen of the most gut-wrenching, emotional things that happened to his character Jimmy Darling, all of which took place over the course of only 13 episodes. -Break- "I have to say that it was an incredibly challenging season, but an incredibly rewarding season that we actually got all of that on film," Peters tells us. Evan Peters gets beaten up by Michael Chiklis on red carpet (Exclusive Video) This year, creator Ryan Murphy and FX have decided to campaign Peters in the Emmy race for Best Movie/Mini Actor, as opposed to the Supporting race where he'd previously contended. »

‘Me and Earl’ Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon on Taking Cues From Hollywood’s Greats

27 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Many a filmmaker shows up at the Sundance Film Festival dreaming of becoming the next Martin Scorsese. But only Alfonso Gomez-Rejon can claim to have crashed on the legendary director’s sofa, retyped his script pages and learned at his side.

Unsurprisingly, the “Taxi Driver” auteur is everywhere in Gomez-Rejon’s Sundance grand jury prize-winner “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” which Fox Searchlight opens in limited release June 12. Greg Gaines, the movie’s cinephile protagonist, has a “Mean Streets” poster tacked to his bedroom wall, a first-edition copy of “Scorsese on Scorsese” on his desk, and a photo of the filmmaker’s longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker as his computer screensaver.

And those are just some of the homages that crop up throughout the second feature by Gomez-Rejon, who learned some of his craft at Scorsese’s elbow, as the director’s production assistant on the Las Vegas shoot of “Casino” in 1995. Now, »

DVR Gridlock 2015-16: Tuesday Nights

26 May 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As in years past, this week, I'm going to be glancing, night-by-night, at how the primetime schedules have changed after the network announcements at upfronts. I'll be looking at how the various changes will impact the ratings races on each night, as well as my own DVRing habits. Readers can chime in on how their own DVRs will be impacted. And yes, this brief series assumes that anybody still watches TV on their TVs. I'm old-fashioned. I'm also probably gonna ignore that I have a fancy new six-tuner DVR that means that I really don't have to make choices anymore. This will assume that I make choices for my own sanity.] Tuesday Nights 8:00 p.m.  ABC: "The Muppets"/"Fresh Off The Boat" CBS: "NCIS" The CW: "The Flash" Fox: "Grandfathered"/"The Grinder" NBC: "The Voice" 9:00 p.m. ABC: "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." CBS: "NCIS: New Orleans" The CW: "iZombie" Fox: "Scream Queens" NBC: "Heartbreaker" 10:00 p.m.  ABC: "Quantico" CBS: "Limitless" NBC: "Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris"/"Chicago Fire" What's Changed: There were six half-hour comedies airing on Tuesday night at the start of last season and there are four half-hour comedies set to air on Tuesday nights this fall and there's no overlap between them. That's pretty remarkable if you think about it. Of last season's fall Tuesday comedies, "Mindy Project" has moved on to Hulu and "New Girl" is returning at midseason and the other four are dead. So it's no wonder that not only are networks doing new comedies on Tuesday, »

American Horror Story Season 5 New Mystery Male Arriving For Deadly Check In,New Spoiler

26 May 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

As previously reported, the new "American Horror Story" season 5 is titled, "Hotel," and showrunner, Ryan Murphy, recently revealed on his official Twitter account that a new, mystery male will be checking in, but won't be checking out.

No other details were given about his character other than that grim check-in fact. Ryan tweeted: ""This October, Max Greenfield (like you've never seen him) is checking in to the hotel….but not checking out. #AHSHotel." The tweet also lets us know that season 5 will indeed begin in October 2015. We were pretty sure about that, already, but confirmation is always nice to have. As previously reported , a few main season 5 stars have already been revealed to be: Evan Peters, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Wes Bentley, Chloe Sevigny, Cheyenne Jackson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates and Lady Gaga. »

Ryan Murphy Helps Bring Jessica Lange Back to Broadway After a Decade Away

26 May 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jessica Lange will return to Broadway for the first time in over a decade next spring, with the Eugene O'Neill classic Long Day's Journey Into Night. Lange reprises the role of the morphine-addled matriarch Mary Tyrone, a character she played in London's West End back in 2000, for which she received an Olivier nomination. She'll co-star alongside In Treatment's Gabriel Byrne, who plays the patriarch of the family, James Tyrone, and John Gallagher Jr., as their son Edmund. But if you thought that this would be a Ryan Murphy–free universe, you would be mistaken! The New York Times reports that Murphy holds the stage rights to the play and approached Todd Haimes, the director of the Roundabout Theater Company, about producing the play with Lange, who is maybe playing Elsa Mars playing Mary Tyrone. After all, everything is connected. »

New Girl’s Max Greenfield Joins American Horror Story: Hotel

26 May 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Schmidt is taking some time away from the loft and checking into a Hotel. Max Greenfield is the latest big name actor to join American Horror Story: Hotel.  American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy announced that Greenfield will be a part of the FX series’ upcoming fifth season on Twitter yesterday. “This October, Max Greenfield (like you’ve never seen him) is checking in to the hotel….but not checking out,” Murphy wrote Like with the rest of American Horror Story: Hotel‘s casting announcements, we don’t have any other details on what type of character Greenfield will be playing, aside from what Murphy has said. However, from that tweet, it would seem that, no matter who he ends up portraying, Greenfield’s character will meet a pretty fatal end. This will be Greenfield’s first time ever appearing on American Horror Story, and it’s unknown how many episodes he will be in. »

Max Greenfield Checks in to 'American Horror Story: Hotel'

26 May 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"New Girl" leading man Max Greenfield is trading in comedy for horror: The sitcom star is set to play a shocking -- and doomed -- character on "American Horror Story: Hotel."

"Ahs" creator Ryan Murphy revealed Greenfield's casting on Twitter on Monday, teasing a grim ending for the actor's against-type onscreen alter ego.

This October, Max Greenfield (like you've never seen him) is checking in to the hotel....but not checking out. #AHSHotel

- Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) May 25, 2015

That's more info than we've gotten about any of the other "Hotel" characters so far (especially that bit that not-so-subtly suggests he's a goner), and certainly has us intrigued. While we'll hate to see our beloved Schmidt succumb to evil -- and be done in by the titular establishment -- we'd watch him in anything, and can't wait to see what Murphy and co. have up their sleeves for the quick-witted actor. »

New Girl’s Max Greenfield Grabs a Room in American Horror Story: Hotel

25 May 2015 11:51 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

New Girl's Max Greenfield has joined the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel, according to series creator Ryan Murphy. No specifics about Greenfield's character have been shared, but Murphy broke the news with a tweet that held a cryptic clue. "This October, Max Greenfield (like you've never seen him) is checking in to the hotel," he wrote, "but not checking out." Whatever that means (he forgot his card key, he's destroyed by Lady Gaga, he gets stuck in an elevator, etc.), right? Greenfield joins Matt Bomer, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Chloë Sevigny, and Angela Bassett, among others. Production should start this summer, so we'll know more about what this tweet means in October. Happy early Halloween. »
