17 July 2017 3:12 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Exclusive: The Ever-Persistent Alison Brie on Comedy, 'Glow' and the Mild Humiliations of Auditioning

28 June 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Despite having played type-a former Adderall addict Annie Edison for six seasons (and perhaps, someday, a movie) on Community, for which she earned a Critics' Choice Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series; despite going joke-for-joke with comedy heavyweights like Will Ferrell (Get Hard), Rebel Wilson (How to Be Single) and Jason Segel and Chris Pratt (The Five-Year Engagement); despite the cosign she's received from comedy maestros ranging from Adam McKay to Judd Apatow; and despite having once worked as a birthday clown named Sunny, Alison Brie has a hard time thinking of herself as a comedian.

"I've never done standup and I've never done improv," Brie says almost timidly, referring to the way in which many people in comedy now work their way through Upright Citizens Brigade or Second City. "I went to theater school" -- she graduated from California Institute of the Arts in 2005 -- "and we did a lot of, like »

‘The Big Sick’ Producer Judd Apatow: Inside His Unlikely Comedy Empire

20 June 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: This article is presented in partnership with Amazon and Lionsgate’s release of The Big Sick – opening in theaters June 23rd in New York & Los Angeles and everywhere July 14. Find out more here.

Kumail Nanjiani is about to become a movie star. His film “The Big Sick” was the hit of this year’s Sundance Film Festival and quickly became the best reviewed comedy in recent memory.

Nanjiani is an unlikely star. A Pakistani-American stand up comedian – best known for playing the straight man in supporting roles, most notably as Dinesh in HBO’s “Silicon Valley”. Instead, the way he got his breakout role in “The Big Sick” was writing it himself. Under the mentorship of producer of Judd Apatow, Nanjiani and his wife, co-writer Emily V. Gordon, spent three years developing the story of their unusual real life courtship and Nanjiani’s conflict of keeping his »

Exclusive: How Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon Turned Their Happiness and Heartache Into 'The Big Sick'

20 June 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's not uncommon for an actor to play a character with their same name, especially when the part is written for the actor and based on them, like Jason Segel and Jonah Hill playing "Jason" and "Jonah" in Knocked Up. Typically, though, the character at least gets a fictional last name, like when Amy Schumer became Amy Townsend for Trainwreck. But in The Big Sick, a rom-dramedy about an aspiring standup who must navigate the »

‘Veep’ Star Anna Chlumsky Joins Season 4 of AMC’s ‘Halt and Catch Fire’

9 June 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Veep” star Anna Chlumsky will appear in the fourth and final season of the AMC drama “Halt and Catch Fire,” the cable network announced Friday.

The series chronicles the tech industry and the birth of the Internet in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Chlumsky will play ontologist Dr. Katie Herman, who has a crucial role in this season’s Search business venture.

“From day one on set Anna has brought a wonderful new energy to the show, that both complements and somehow even further elevates the work of our core ensemble,” said series co-creator and co-showrunner Christopher C. Rogers. “Anna brings a remarkable depth of personal experience and intention to this role, and we feel incredibly lucky to add an actress of her caliber to our palette even as we bring the series-long story of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ to a close.”

In addition to her role on “Veep,” which has earned her four Emmy nominations, Chlumsky »

That Time Paul Rudd and Jason Segel Were High Doing An Interview for “I Love You Man”

5 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When promoting a film, the stars of said film often have to do interviews that they don’t really want to do, however it’s in their contract so making appearances and giving quotes about their roles, etc etc are necessary in order for them to get paid.  However, nowhere in their contract does it state that they have to be sober or even nice in their interviews.   Back in 2009 while giving an interview for the movie I Love You Man, Jason Segel and Paul Rudd were definitely not in the best of shape. While there’s no definitive proof these guys

Jason Segel Gets a Scandalous Image in His Coffee After Hilarious Latte Art Fail

18 May 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Latte art is a tricky thing. When done right, it can be a thing of beauty — one coffee engineer even mastered the grand achievement of etching Taylor Swift’s face into foam. In the wrong hands, though, things can sometimes go disastrously.

Enter Jason Segel. When the actor went out for his morning cup of joe on Thursday, he was surprised with a valiant attempt at latte art that turned into a spectacularly funny (potentially Nsfw) failure.

“This morning my barista got embarrassed after he made me my coffee,” the How I Met Your Mother star captioned a Twitter photo. »

The Best One-Season Wonder TV Shows That Never Got Renewed — IndieWire Critics Survey

16 May 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best one-and-done show, a.k.a. a One-Season Wonder? (This refers to shows that only got one season and tragically did not get renewed, as opposed to limited series that never intended to continue.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

There are so many! But for me the best will always be “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a show that I watched at an age before I really understood the whole TV renewal/cancellation process, but even then I knew it was unjustly short. The show was such a great blend of smarts, snark, and genuine emotions, in a way that could actually be painful to watch. »

Ready for a How I Met Your Mother Revival? 20th Century Fox Sure Is

15 May 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is it time to get the gang back together at MacLaren's? If 20th Century Fox has its way, yes, How I Met Your Mother will be back. Eventually. "At some point, I would hope we would have the opportunity to reunite those characters and tell new stories if [creators] Craig [Thomas] and Carter [Bays] have the opportunity to do that," Dana Walden, chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group told reporters on a conference call while discussing the Fox network's new fall schedule. How I Met Your Mother aired for nine seasons on CBS from 2005-2014. Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel and Cristin Milioti starred over the show's lengthy run. Himym ended with a divisive »

‘The Circle’ Review: Tom Hanks and Emma Watson Star In a Misguided Story of Technology Gone Wrong — Tribeca 2017

27 April 2017 7:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The core of “The Circle” is a dumb movie trying to be smart. The premise begs to provoke contentious debate around privacy laws in an age of boundless innovation, but it can’t seem to find steady footing in that dialogue, in part because it lacks a substantial means of asking the right questions.

Young brainiac Mae (Emma Watson) scores a plumb job at technology empire The Circle, a palatial Bay Area company developing cutting-edge video technology at the behest of the smiley CEO Bailey (Tom Hanks). With time, Mae becomes immersed in a scheme to develop live-streaming video with lightweight cameras at a low cost, and eventually signs up to wear one of the devices 24/7. As she transforms her life into a 21st century Truman Show, with millions of online observers commenting on her existence in real-time, Mae’s trapped by the powerful ramifications of the technology and the »

Bryan Cranston Remembers Jonathan Demme and The Film They Never Got To Do Together

26 April 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston and director Jonathan Demme had long wanted to work together, and came close in 2013.

Demme had tapped Cranston to star in “Old Fires,” playing a man who emerges from a coma and discovers that his family has moved on. Jason Segel and Jennifer Ehle were also attached to the film, which was written by Heather McGowan (“Tadpole”).

“It made me very sad this morning to hear the news [of Demme’s death],” Cranston told IndieWire on Wednesday. “He was such a kind man and I was so looking forward to working with him. Even though that project didn’t materialize, we were talking about other projects to do together.”

Old Fires” ultimately didn’t move forward when Demme couldn’t secure the proper funding for the film.

Jonathan Demme, ‘Silence of the Lambs' and 'Philadelphia' Director, Dies at 73

26 April 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme died on Wednesday in New York of esophageal cancer complications. He was 73 years old.

The filmmaker is perhaps best known for directing the 1991 thriller The Silence of the Lambs, which earned a Best Picture Oscar along with Academy Awards for stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins as well as Demme himself. He went on to direct such films as Philadelphia in 1993, the 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate and Rachel Getting Married in 2008.

One of his last director credits is for his work on the Netflix documentary Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids that was released last year.

Last October, Et's Cameron Mathison sat down with Demme and Timberlake, where the filmmaker revealed his plans to direct the triple-threat star in a movie. "It's big in my life to want to work with Justin," he said. "Justin and Jason Segel. I want you guys to do a movie together with me."

Emma Watson’s The Circle Ends The Lame Spring Movie Season -- The Weekend Warrior

26 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Even Emma Watson and Tom Hanks May Not Be Enough to Make a Mark As April Ends 

The last weekend of April, and the “slower” spring movie season is ending this weekend, leading directly into the start of the lucrative summer box office next week. As has been the case in past years, the last couple weekends in April see a couple movies hoping to bring in any amount of money before the first big summer blockbuster, and other movies that will steal away their theaters. Last weekend was pretty sad, but hopefully a few of this weekend’s movies will fare better.

The movie that stands the best chance at finding an audience this weekend is the tech industry thriller The Circle »

7 Netflix Original Movies That Are Worth Seeking Out

24 April 2017 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last week, in response to the news that Netflix had finally cracked the Cannes competition lineup (a breakthrough that inspired the Federation of French Cinemas to question if a movie that skips theaters should even be considered “a cinematographic work”), I wrote about the streaming giant and how they’ve performed as a distributor. My conclusions were, uh, not super favorable. Criticizing the company’s penchant for pricing out the competition, hoarding the hottest indies on the festival circuit, and burying them on their site without the benefit of a proper release, I argued that Netflix isn’t a distributor so much as “a graveyard with unlimited viewing hours,” and that “it doesn’t release movies, it inters them.” It’s a problem that extends to the well-funded features that Netflix produces themselves, a problem that’s only going to get worse as those titles continue to get better.

Pot TV: Celebrate 4/20 By Watching the Most Memorable Stoner Shows

20 April 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s not a federally recognized holiday, but the peaceful spirit of April 20 – otherwise known as the marijuana-enhanced 4-20 – is one worth celebrating. While still technically an illegal substance in most areas of the world, some of our favorite TV shows are clearly enhanced by being under the influence. Pot imbues them with a certain sensibility that may heighten the mood, even without chemical assistance.

Here are some of our favorite series, all available on streaming services, that acknowledge weed as a normal part of life for many Americans (even though a lot of the characters on this list probably shouldn’t be described as “normal”).

“Bored to Death”

Jonathan Ames’ HBO comedy was a celebration of both pot’s mellow and extreme mind-altering states. On the one hand, a little bit of suspension of disbelief was needed to buy into the oddball adventures of Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman), a novelist turned unlicensed private investigator. »
