If the saying “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is true, then there are a slew of New Yorkers right now banking on the fact that they “knew” Andrew Rannells way back in middle school. The Book of Mormon actor took over for Jonathan Groff as King George in the hottest ticket on Broadway, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton (Groff is currently shooting the Looking wrap-up movie for HBO). “I’m only in it for two more weeks,” Rannells told Vulture at the premiere of Carol, hosted by Chanel. “I’m so sad to be leaving, and I’m so excited to be there.” But what won’t he miss? “I will not miss people reaching out to me for tickets, though. It’s like everybody and their mother is like, ‘Hey, 'member be? I went to eighth grade with you. Can you get me house seats to Hamilton? »

At Monday’s night New York premiere of the Weinstein Company’s drama “Carol,” Cate Blanchett took her time to advocate that a love story between two women set in the 1950s is not meant to be a lesbian love story but, simply, a love story.
“To me, the film is about the power of falling in love. Whether it’s a woman falling for another women or a heterosexual couple falling in love, any great love story has roadblocks and impediments, but our film shows that it’s about the dangerous, volcanic feelings that you experience when you fall in love,” Blanchett told Variety on the red carpet prior to the screening at the Museum of Modern Art. “When you fall in love, you’re out of control and there’s some fear and panic and your heart beats faster. That doesn’t change if you are gay or heterosexual. »

Spike Lee’s 1989 film Do The Right Thing remaibs one of the filmmaker’s most well-regarded features, the relevance of its social message seemingly becoming only more prescient with time. However, over the years, the Brooklyn neighbourhood in which the film is set has changed, populated now by a new demographic.
It is this shift that is at the root of a new parody trailer released by Jimmy Kimmel Live. The trailer imagines a sequel to Lee’s film with Brooklyn’s current population, and how it would play out, with a starring list that includes Rami Malek, Andrew Rannells, Alex Karpovsky, and Zooey Deschanel. The trailer for the parody film, titled Do The Right Thing 2: Do The White Thing, can be seen below.

Twenty-six years ago, Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" tossed a can of garbage through the window of cinema, with a portrait of Brooklyn as a hothouse of racial discord. Two decades later, the borough has changed, and Jimmy Kimmel has offered up his parody of what life is currently like in Bed-Stuy with "Do The Right Thing 2: Do The White Thing." Read More: The Hottest Day Of Summer: Spike Lee's Landmark 'Do The Right Thing' On Its 25th Anniversary Once again reaching out to almost every celebrity he can — Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel, Rami Malek, Alex Karpovsky, Andrew Rannells, Jay Duplass, and even Rosie Perez — the parody sequel takes audiences into a world where the issues of the day are locally sourced ingredients, eco-consciousness, thrift store wears, and there are plenty of beards to be found as well. Check it out below. »

In just one season, Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen) has gone from a highly-regarded surgeon to a drug-addled mess when Cinemax's critically-acclaimed series The Knick returns for Season 2 with the premiere episode Ten Knots, debuting Friday, October 16 at 10 Pm Et. While we wait for the season premiere to arrive in just a few short days, the network has released the first clip from this upcoming episode, which shows that Thackery has become quite unhinged. After a surprise visit by Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson), Thackery becomes obsessed with the time.
Set in the year 1901, The Knick faces an upheaval, as Dr. John Thackery's absence (due to his hospitalization for cocaine addiction), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led to the board's decision to shutter The Knickerbocker Hospital in favor of a new building uptown. In this world of corruption, invention and progress, everyone is searching for the »

Question: Can you give us some Castle spoilers? —Anna
Ausiello: I’m hearing that a late fall episode — most likely the Nov. 9 installment — will be very Beckett-lite. As in she will, at best, maybe-possibly be in one scene. ABC declined to comment, but my guess is Stana Katic had an “out” in her contract so she could be here.

After replacing How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris in Hedwig and the Angry Inch last year, Broadway reports that Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon, Girls) is continuing his hobby of filling in for gay TV leads on Broadway. Rannells will step into the role of King George in Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical Hamilton while Jonathan Groff films the Looking movie. Groff himself first joined the cast last winter, replacing Brian d’Arcy James. Ranells will be seen in the role from October 27 through November 29. Groff returns to Hamilton on December 1. Listen to Groff sing "You'll Be Back" below, because why not. »

Going into the weekend, many box office prognosticators were wondering if director Ridley Scott's The Martian could break the October opening weekend record set two years ago by Gravity, which earned $55.7 million in its first weekend in theaters. As it turns out, The Martian gave a valiant effort, but came up just short, taking in an estimated $55 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Of course, the film is still in great shape, earning back nearly half of its $108 million budget after just three days in theaters.
The Martian was widely beloved by critics, earning a 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, opening in 3,831 theaters for an impressive $14,357 per-screen average. If these estimates hold true when the actual numbers roll in tomorrow, The Martian will have fell just $700,000 short of Gravity's October box office record, but it is still an impressive showing nonetheless. The Martian was the only new movie opening wide this weekend, »

Instead of worrying about The Simpsons‘ pseudo split in Sunday’s season premiere (Fox, 8/7c), perhaps fans should be more concerned about Marge heading to the slammer in May’s finale.
“Marge lets Bart go to the park alone because he’s too irritating, then she ends up getting arrested,” executive producer Al Jean tells TVLine of the Season 27 finale. “I read a column by Mitch Albom, the writer of Tuesdays with Morrie, about a mother who was arrested for letting her son play »

In The Intern, Anne Hathaway plays a fashion executive whose new intern is a retired senior played by Robert De Niro.

Directed by Nancy Meyers, The Intern's cast also includes Adam DeVine, Girls' Andrew Rannells, Nat Wolff and Rene Russo. Hathaway also pretty much shot down rumors that she may be to starring in an »

Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro team up for the first time for .The Intern. under writer/director Nancy Meyer.s guidance. Is the film worthy of Meyer.s other notable movies such as .Something.s Gotta Give. and .It.s Complicated?. Find out in my movie review of .The Intern..
For writer/director Nancy Meyers, click here.
There's a reason Nancy Meyers is Hollywood's most successful female director. The Intern, in theaters Friday, will feel familiar to those who have watched her previous movies time and again. But unlike the majority of her work, The Intern's focus is light on romance. Rather, it chronicles an unlikely friendship that forms between Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway), the founder and CEO of a fashion e-commerce company, and Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro), a retiree who becomes Jules' sounding board. The 121-minute movie's supporting cast includes Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Zack Pearlman, Andrew Rannells, Rene Russo and Nat Wolff, as well as Jason Orley, who is Meyers' former assistant. The Intern is »
Andrew Rannells may steadfastly man a desk in Nancy Meyers' film The Intern, opening Friday — but Thursday night, he's hitting the stage at 54 Below in a cabaret for the National YoungArts Foundation, an initiative that encourages adolescents who are aspiring artists. His own week-long scholarship experience in 1997 is what helped him establish a career in the arts, including his Broadway breakout in The Book of Mormon and his recurring role on HBO's Girls. "It might seem like a small thing, but at that age, when sometimes confidence is sparse, being called an 'artist' really boosts your

Behind at least one successful woman stands an older, wiser man. That, at least, is the chief takeaway from “The Intern,” a perky generation-gap fable that sneaks some surprisingly conservative gender politics into its stainless new world of online startups and amply product-placed Macbooks. Starring Robert De Niro as the tirelessly benevolent retiree who becomes fashion entrepreneur Anne Hathaway’s unlikely guide to work-life equilibrium, this is smooth white-linen entertainment, unmistakably of a piece with the plush oeuvre of writer-director Nancy Meyers. Yet it takes all the leads’ considerable combined charm to forestall the aftertaste of the pic’s smug life lessons and near-comically blinkered worldview. Supplanting the romantic fizz of “It’s Complicated” and “Something’s Gotta Give” with scarf-deep social engagement may cost Meyers’ latest a little at the box office, but this “Intern” will still be reasonably well-paid by an under-served date-night crowd.
