Glee Recap: Love Is a Battlefield

16 April 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It was difficult to watch last night’s Glee without being preoccupied by the statements Ryan Murphy made earlier this week about the future of the show. He had a lot to say, but for me, the key takeaways were that the show’s final season won’t be set in New York, the currently airing episodes aren’t a “preview” of what the final season will look like, and there will be a time jump between the fifth and sixth seasons. On the one hand, that’s really intriguing. On the other: Seriously, what is happening? Because when I couple that information with what I saw on last night’s Glee, I have a hard time understanding what show it is I’m watching. Why are we spending so much time on the minutia of life in New York if we’ll be leaving these stories behind in four more episodes? »

American Horror Story: 10 Things Freak Show Must Do Better Than Its Predecessors

16 April 2014 1:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

FX

With series creator Ryan Murphy revealing that the forthcoming American Horror Story season will be called Freak Show, the internet has become abuzz with anticipation. Each year the show has taken a different horror premise and Freak Show is set to follow in the footsteps of Murder House, Asylum and Coven. What we know exactly about Freak Show is limited, but described here.

In the previous three seasons American Horror Story has covered a wide range of horror staples, from alien abductions to witches, serial killers, voodoo and evil Nazi doctors. But what must Freak Show do to stand out from the seasons that came before it? With a simply astounding ensemble cast lined up, there is high hopes that Freak Show can be the best American Horror Story year yet.

But it will be the last season to feature Jessica Lange, so there is the expectation that she »

‘Glee’s Final Season To Have New Location, Final Scene About Rachel & Will Schuester

15 April 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

After departing McKinley High to move to New York fulltime for the latter part of this season, the musical dramedy looked destined to end its run in the Big Apple. That won’t be the case, Glee co-creator/executive producer Ryan Murphy said in a press call yesterday. “The final season is its own story in its own location; it is not New York-centric at all,” Murphy said, as reported by TVLine. “It really is a lovely, fitting season that dwells on the original people on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. … We’ll revisit some of the new kids that came and went, there’s a return of [Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester] and [Matthew Morrison's Will Schuester] in a big way.” Related: Ryan Murphy Confirms How ‘Glee’ Was Supposed To End The sixth and final season of Fox‘s Glee will consist of 24 episodes, two of them carried over from this season, »

Big News on Glee's Final Season: Goodbye, New York. Hello, Time Jump

15 April 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Glee has a few more episodes before it closes out its fifth season, but producer Ryan Murphy is already thinking ahead. Next season will be the show's last, and on a conference call this week, Murphy told reporters, including Vulture, some huge news about season six. Not only will the two episodes cut from this season be tacked onto next season (for a total of 24 episodes), but also, the entire ending has been altered in light of Finn's (Cory Monteith) death. Instead, the finale will be about Rachel and Mr. Schue. "It returns them to their origins, how they felt about each other when they were all much younger and everything was idyllic," said Murphy. Here's what we know so far. The Final Season Won't Be New York-Centric "The final season is really its own story and its own location," Murphy said. "While the New York stuff will be alive, »

Glee Will Time Jump—and Won't Be in New York—for Final Season

15 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let the Glee mystery begin! Creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy has dropped quite the unexpected little bomb about the Fox hit's sixth and final season: It won't be New York-centric. It will jump forward in time. And it will directly involve only a handful of core characters—although Murphy insists that for the final year, "anybody who wants to come back can come back."  "Everything sort of builds to a head [in the current season's finale]," Murphy explained to a small group of reporters Monday. "I would say explosion is too harsh of a word, but something big happens and then the final season is the aftermath of that." Tonight's episode, »

Ryan Murphy on Glee’s Final Season: New Location and Smaller Cast

15 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After Cory Monteith’s unexpected passing last summer, Ryan Murphy knew he had to change directions with Glee. Suddenly, it felt wrong to be hanging around the high school. “The big idea, the big plan of what the series was gonna be and how it was gonna end radically changed when Cory passed away,” Glee boss Ryan Murphy told Vulture. Finn would have taken over the glee club while Rachel would pursue her dreams in New York City. When Cory passed away, “that part of the story as we imagined it, it just didn’t make any sense anymore, and it felt bad, to be quite honest.” So producers decided to reset the show leading up to the final season. They’d close the McKinley High chapter with the 100th episode, and start fresh with all of the core cast relocating to New York. Creatively, Murphy’s happy. On Monday afternoon, »

'Glee's' Ryan Murphy on New Endgame: Final Season is Not 'New York-Centric'

15 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Glee's sixth and final season is starting to take shape. Following the July death of star Cory Monteith -- whose Finn Hudson was the cornerstone of the show's Ohio-set high school storyline -- showrunner Ryan Murphy shifted the Fox musical to New York full-time. The move, he says, has rejuvenated the series that he admits stumbled a bit at the start of its current fifth season when it attempted to hold on to its McKinley High School setting. "The big plan of what the series was going to be and how it was going to end was radically changed when

What Films Will Show Up at the 2014 Cannes Film Festivalc

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This Thursday, April 17, the complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival line-up will be announced and while this will be my first year since 2010 that I won't be in attendance I still can't help but be curious and excited. We know Grace of Monaco will serve as the opener and have also learned in the last 48 hours Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice won't be in attendance, which eliminates two of the potentially major entrants, but what's leftc It's more or less confirmed David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars will be in the line-up. Other very likely candidates include Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman and The Rover starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce. I expect The Rover will be a Director's Fortnight entrant. Other strong competitors with a larger amount of audience awareness include Xavier Dolan's Mommy, »

Watch: New Teaser For 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Raises Its Voice

13 April 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We'll know in a few days if our prediction that "The Normal Heart" will be hitting the Cannes Film Festival is accurate, but until then, a new teaser for the HBO film is here. The drama is based on the acclaimed play by Larry Kramer, chronicling the onset of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s as gay activists and concerned doctors fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic. And it's a wrenching tale, with Mark Ruffalo's line, "I am trying understand why nobody gives a shit, now we're dying," resonating pretty hard. Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch (along with a questionable wig) and Jim Parsons co-star with Ryan Murphy behind the camera. "The Normal Heart" debuts on HBO on May 25th. Watch below. »

Watch: Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch and Matt Bomer Discuss 'The Normal Heart' (and Kitsch Explains Why He Had To Get The Crotch of His Jeans 'Elongated')

10 April 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With its premiere just over a month away (and the potential that it will screen in Cannes first to be officially known next Thursday), the press blitz for Ryan Murphy's adaptation of Larry Kramer's AIDS drama "The Normal Heart" is ramping up, with an extensive, must-read cover story on this week's The Hollywood Reporter.   The story came with the below video that "goes behind the scenes of the photo shoot" (zzzz) but also gives four of the films actors -- Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch and Matt Bomer -- the chance to discuss the importance of the film for them, and in Kitsch's case, the importance of a tailor so that his crotch could, um, fit into his 1980s-era jeans (Bomer and Parsons' faces when he tells this story are priceless).

Lea Michele Rocks a Sleek Bob on the Set of Glee—See the Photo!

9 April 2014 7:55 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The bob is back! Lea Michele had a different, albeit temporary, look on the set of Glee Wednesday, her long tresses tucked inside a bob-cut wig—but this of course isn't the first time the 27-year-old actress has donned this short, sleek hairstyle. On the hit musical series her character Rachel has landed the role of Fanny Brice—the iconic early-20th-century star that Barbra Streisand played on Broadway and in the 1968 film adaptation of Funny Girl—and wears the short, Barbra-reminiscent 'do. Hair today, gone tomorrow...usually. But Michele may want to get used to this wig because Glee creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy has acquired the stage rights »

Evan Peters begged for Emma Roberts’ return on the upcoming season of "American Horror Story," claims the National Enquirer. According to the tab, after Roberts' run-ins with Gabourey Sidibe and Jessica Lange, the show's executive producer Ryan Murphy began to question whether or not to bring the young actress back. But Peters, says a source for the magazine, "assured the boss he can keep her in check." Really? »

Barbra Streisand on 'The Normal Heart': 'I Tried Very Hard to Get It Made.'

8 April 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Barbra Streisand was the first filmmaker to see the potential in a screen adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart, his 1985 play about the early days of the AIDS epidemic. But although she held an option on the project for 10 years and continued to try to assemble a film version even after her option lapsed, her efforts proved unsuccessful. In 2012, even as Ryan Murphy's adaptation, which will premiere on HBO on May 25, was coming together, Kramer blasted Streisand in an email that went public, telling her she did not have "quite the same burning passion to

'Glee': Shirley MacLaine to guest

8 April 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Shirley MacLaine is headed to Ryan Murphy-ville — but, sadly, it’s not American Horror Story.

Instead, the Oscar-winner (who was most recently seen on television strutting around Downton Abbey) will have a multi-episode arc on Glee, EW has confirmed. TVLine, which first reported the news, says she’ll portray a New York socialite intent on turning Blaine (Darren Criss) into a superstar. (I mean, someone has to go up against Rachel for Broadway supremacy…)

Her first episode is slated to air later this month. Glee recently saw its episode order this season cut from 22 to 20, but the show will return for a final, »
