With Hollywood looking for franchises wherever it can find them, it seems mighty odd that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a highly successful novel with a film adaptation that had Rooney Mara, David Fincher, and James Friggin’ Bond attached, is not already swimming in sequels. The American version of Stieg Larsson’s novel wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, but it made $233 million worldwide on a $90 million budget. It seems like a no-brainer.
Now there’s talk from THR that a sequel could arrive soon enough, but Sony is debating the possibility of turning Larsson’s last two books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, into a single film. They may even lump in a new novel starring hacker Lisbeth Salander by David Lagercrantz called The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Larsson passed away in 2004, before the books were even »

Briefly: Even though Andrew Rannells has broken out due to his recurring role in the HBO series "Girls," the actor had plenty of success as part of the original cast of the Broadway musical The Book of Mormon, for which he wont a Grammy and a Tony. But now he's taking significant roles in moves with a turn in Nancy Meyers forthcoming comedy The Intern. Though he's keen to make his own movies too as Deadline reports Universal has just picked up and untitled comedy pitch that Rannells will write with Mike Doyle, one of the cast members of Jersey Boys. In addition, "Girls" producer Judd Apatow will produce the film. There's no plot details yet, but this could be Rannells' chance for his own Trainwreck like Amy Schumer. We'll see. »

Exclusive: Universal Pictures has acquired an untitled comedy pitch that Girls co-star Andrew Rannells and Jersey Boys castmember Mike Doyle will write. It’s a potential star vehicle for Rannells, and Judd Apatow will produce it under his Apatow Productions banner. They’re keeping the logline quiet, but the studio and Apatow are keen to make it work with Rannells, a Grammy winner and Tony nominee for his breakout role in Broadway’s The Book Of Mormon. He got his big movie… »
Edie Falco, “Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter, “Recount” and “Game Change” writer Danny Strong and “Girls” alum Andrew Rannells were among those making the rounds. “Veep’s” Julia Louis-Dreyfus herself huddled for a long time at a table with Katie Couric. CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield was also hovering around, no doubt looking for scoops about Selina Meyer’s next moves.
Michael Lombardo and other HBO execs were on hand to cheer the launch of the latest campaign, but a group snuck off to an upstairs room every so often to catch up with the Ncaa men’s basketball championship game.
The setting was complete with an electric “Potus” sign parked behind the bar and a photo-op installation with plenty of American flags. Four more years, indeed.

The true saving grace of the fourth season of "Girls" was Andrew Rannells' Elijah. While the series itself became uneven and occasionally quite frustrating, every scene -- every line of dialogue, even -- involving Elijah brought it back to life. Which is in large part due to how fantastic an actor Rannells is. His timing and delivery is impeccable, and he breathes layers into a character that could have easily been a caricature. Because Elijah is an old school representation when it comes to gay characters on television, at least in a certain sense. He's there to deliver witty lines to the oh-so-lost women around him while always impeccably dressed and without much of a storyline of his own. But Rannells and the writing team at "Girls" collectively rise above this. Elijah has more insight and wisdom than all four lead characters combined, and is by far the most likeable character on the show. »

The most engrossing part of HBO's "Girls" isn't that the characters are unlikeable; it's that they're spontaneously lovable and horrible, sometimes within the space of a single episode. Or scene. At PaleyFest in Hollywood over the weekend, we chatted with the cast of "Girls" to discuss their favorite and least favorite character moments. Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Andrew Rannells, and executive producers Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner opened up about liking and disliking the exploits of Hannah, Elijah, and more.

This post contains spoilers for Sunday night’s episode of Girls. On Sunday night’s episode of Girls, Hannah’s father, Tad Horvath (Peter Scolari), came out of the closet in what will be a three-episode arc leading up to the finale on March 22. If you recall way back in season one, Hannah’s gay college boyfriend, Elijah Krantz (Andrew Rannells), makes a passing reference to her dad being gay. “We’ve actually been talking about this since the beginning,” says executive producer Jenni Konner on the PaleyFest red carpet on Sunday. “If you were to go back and watch with the lens of knowing that, you’d see a lot of references to it, actually. It was something we always thought about.”In response to the fact that Tad’s had what seems a fairly healthy sexual relationship with his wife (Becky Ann Baker), Lena Dunham told us: The »

The stars and executive producers of HBO’s “Girls” were on hand at Hollywood’s annual PaleyFest at the Dolby Theater on Sunday afternoon, and creator Lena Dunham exhibited her trademark candor during the panel, addressing everything from her online critics to the show’s controversial sex scenes.
The Q&A was moderated by executive producer Judd Apatow, who wasn’t afraid to query Dunham about her politics and the divisiveness of the buzzy series.
“I stopped looking at my own Twitter. I send the tweets to someone… and she posts them for me — she lets me know if there’s an important response,” Dunham said engaging with fans on social media. “It became a little too much. This is advice I would have for everyone — whether you have a million followers or whether you have seven followers, because we all deal with the complexity of people being able to »

It's well-known that HBO's critically-acclaimed series Girls has pushed the boundaries of showing sex on TV.
The unapologetically exposed scenes can range anywhere from awkwardly passionate to uncomfortable and emotional, but according to Girls' creator Lena Dunham, they all have one thing in common: they're on the show for a reason.
"We really do try to show -- and people may laugh at this -- but we do sex scenes that we think really do push the characters and the plot forward, and that doesn’t feel gratuitous," the 28-year-old executive producer explained to a packed room of fans at Paleyfest on Sunday.
Dunham referenced one season five sex scene in particular that was used as an information cheat-sheet to bring audiences up to speed on Marnie's current relationship status. "I'm sure that someone would have a quibble with that, but what we »

At the 11th annual awards dinner, the Family Equality Council honored the two series for their impact in advancing cultural conversation about Lgbtq (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender questioning) families, and also paid tribute to Mayor Annise Parker of Houston, Texas, and the brand Honey Maid, for their “This Is Wholesome” campaign.

Prepare to see Darren Criss like you’ve never seen him before.
The Glee actor is set to take over the title role in the current revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway. Criss follows in the footsteps of John Cameron Mitchell -- the creator and originator of the role both Off-Broadway and on film -- as well as Neil Patrick Harris, Girls' Andrew Rannells, and Michael C. Hall (pictured below). The three TV stars all portrayed the East German transgender rocker over the past year.
Criss, who made his 2012 Broadway debut in How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, has already garnered the support of Mitchell, who is excited to welcome him to “the brotherhood of Hedwigs.”
“His stage presence is electrifying, his rock and roll credentials and comic timing impeccable, and I’m thrilled to be working with him »
