Actor/comedian Adam Ferrara used to fight fires with Denis Leary on Rescue Me. He now drives way too fast on Top Gear. This season he is trading witty banter and love scenes with Edie Falco. As New York City Police Sergeant Frank Verelli, his scenes with Falco are as funny and even hotter than those with the crew of the fictional “62 Truck.”
Nurse Jackie, the superb Showtime comedy drama about hospitals, addiction, friendship, and family, with the former Carmella Soprano, the brilliant Edie Falco, leading a magnificent cast and guest stars including Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith and Peter Facinelli, Bobby Cannavale, Morris Chestnut, Stephen Wallem, Betty Gilpin, and Ferrara.
As the fifth season wraps up this Sunday night, the show is still smart, tight, and interesting and has just »

Acting guru and ex-Parisian pimp — seriously — James Lipton has never had trouble attracting big names to Inside the Actors Studio, which began airing on Bravo in 1994. Lipton’s first interview was with former Actors Studio president Paul Newman; the show’s first season also featured heavy hitters like Alec Baldwin, Sally Field, Dennis Hopper, Arthur Miller, Neil Simon, and Stephen Sondheim.
Nearly 20 years later, Lipton has chatted with hundreds of boldfaced names both awe-inspiring (Meryl Streep! Morgan Freeman! ) and… occasionally less awe-inspiring (was anyone really yearning to hear J. Lo describe her craft?). And naturally, those visits have produced days »

After a warm reception in Chicago this past spring, the musical adaptation of Tim Burton’s phantasmagorical 2003 film Big Fish will be hitting Broadway this fall, and EW has an exclusive clip to get you ready for the circus. Here in its entirety is “Time Stops”, featuring two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Catch Me If You Can) and Tony-nominee Kate Baldwin (Finian’s Rainbow), one of several new tunes penned by composer Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party). The production features a book by John August (who also wrote the film) and is directed and choreographed by »

“I work because I want to work,” says Redford, now 76. “Work keeps me going.”
By Barbara Lovenheim
When I interviewed Redford in 1984 for his role in "The Natural," he was defensive about his image as a matinee idol and hesitant to talk with reporters because, he told me, “if you talk about an issue, what comes back is a description of what you’re wearing. Reporters only want to know how tall you are and if your teeth are capped.” Now 76, Redford has no reason to apologize for his appearance or his life; he has endured as a major talent for a very long time; he is still actively making films and starring in them, and he has turned Sundance into an important institute for independent filmmakers. He is now defying age and arthritis by working hard, playing tennis, skiing and riding horseback through miles of rugged country. »
New York (AP) — The Beatles are coming back to Broadway. Two years after a Fab Four cover band arrived on the Great White Way, the London hit "Let It Be" plans to arrive this summer with new guys playing John, Paul, George and Ringo.

New York — The Beatles are coming back to Broadway.
Two years after a Fab Four cover band arrived on the Great White Way, the London hit "Let It Be" plans to arrive this summer with new guys playing John, Paul, George and Ringo.

In 2011, "Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles on Broadway" opened at the Neil Simon Theatre, recouped its $2 million investment in seven weeks, extended and moved into the smaller Brooks Atkinson.
"Let It Be" will start previews July 16 at the St. James Theatre, with an opening night slated for July 24. The London version will continue to run. »
We were extremely curious to find out what kind of content YouTube’s new talent-driven channel Jash would produce with the combined brilliance of Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim & Eric, and Reggie Watts. Even though a Michael Cera-directed short film adaptation of Bruce Jay Friedman’s 1966 story Brazzaville Teen-ager seems a bit out of the box, we’re kind of delighted that Jash is pushing the boundaries of what a comedy channel can be. It’s not just parodies and sketches.
Cera’s 19-minute treatment of the classic short tells the story of Gunther, a young man hoping to connect with his sick father. »

London (AP) — Richard Griffiths was one of the great British stage actors of his generation, a heavy man with a light touch, whether in Shakespeare or Neil Simon. But for millions of movie fans, he will always be grumpy Uncle Vernon, the least magical of characters in the fantastical "Harry Potter" movies. Griffiths died Thursday at University Hospital in Coventry, central England, from complications following heart surgery, his agent, Simon Beresford, said. He was 65. "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe paid tribute to the actor Friday, saying that "any room he walked into was made twice as funny »

London — Richard Griffiths was one of the great British stage actors of his generation, a heavy man with a light touch, whether in Shakespeare or Neil Simon. But for millions of movie fans, he will always be grumpy Uncle Vernon, the least magical of characters in the fantastical "Harry Potter" movies.
Griffiths died Thursday at University Hospital in Coventry, central England from complications following heart surgery, his agent, Simon Beresford, said. He was 65.
"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe paid tribute to the actor Friday, saying that "any room he walked into was made twice as funny and twice as clever just by his presence."
"I am proud to say I knew him," Radcliffe said.
Griffiths won a Tony Award for "The History Boys" and appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows. But he will be most widely remembered as a pair of contrasting uncles – Harry Potter's Uncle Vernon Dursley »
Richard Griffiths, the versatile British actor who played the boy wizard’s unsympathetic Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter movies, has died. He was 65.
Agent Simon Beresford announced Friday that Griffiths died a day earlier of complications following heart surgery at University Hospital in Coventry, central England.
He paid tribute to Griffiths as “a remarkable man and one of our greatest and best-loved actors.”
Griffiths appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows, but will be most widely remembered as a pair of contrasting uncles — the hero’s grudging Muggle guardian in the Harry Potter series, and flamboyant Uncle Monty »

New York — It's fitting that Nora Ephron's swan song, the play "Lucky Guy," calls the Broadhurst Theatre on West 44th Street home. The venue, which has played host to productions of Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians," Neil Simon's "The Sunshine Boys," Peter Shaffer's "Amadeus" and Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" over its century-long history, sits around the corner from the old New York Times Building that housed the operations of the Gray Lady for 94 years. And Ephron's play, while an account of the rise, fall and vindication of New York journalist Mike McAlary, is just as much a »

All of Shawn's worst fears came true on Psych this week.
Oh, the things we learn when "Juliet Takes a Luvvah," Gus gets a new girlfriend and Madeline drops back into town!
From fine dining to turtle necklaces, Juliet's suitors certainly gave Shawn a run for his money.
But let's be honest: it's about time we were treated to a case where Juliet got to investigate the seedy underworld of online dating, if only so we could see Shawn act out at the situation. We all knew he'd handle it poorly, but didn't it make your heart swoon when he told Juliet he was finally ready to cohabitate?
Yes, it could have been a function of the scarring scene Shawn witnessed between Maddie and Henry (which we'll get to in a minute), but it's just as likely that the experience reminded him of how much he loves and wants to be with Juliet. »

HoYay—short for "Homoeroticism, Yay!"—celebrates the sexual potential of male-male relationships. Proponents and auteurs of HoYay in contemporary television series—including such shows as Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Suits, Hawaii Five-0, Sherlock, Community, and Merlin—argue that the intimate relationships highlighted between key male protagonists both mirror and suggest male-male romantic relationships—in short, duos like Derek and Stiles and Merlin and Arthur are gay without being gay. In order to ably name these relationships, they use the term homoerotic, describing not only what is present onscreen but also what becomes present in a culture that extends beyond what is depicted—in fan fiction, slash, ‘shipping blogs, and in the imaginations of both the viewer and possibly the creator of the shows as well.
Homoeroticism has a long history. The earliest surviving fictions, the ancient Sumerian epics of Gilgamesh, feature what has been described as a homoerotic relationship between the »

Psych returns for it seventh season with a strong episode that's both funny and touching. Here's Nick's review...
This review contains spoilers.
7.1 Santabarbaratown 2
The Cranberry is dead. Long live the Cranberry.
The Psych season finales have long had a habit of taking things to a whole new level of seriousness – traditionally with the appearance of Yin and Yang and their personal interest in harming Shawn and his loved ones – but the rule of Conservation of Plot has always held firm: come the first episode of the next series, everything must be as it was.
Perhaps that’s why the idea that Henry might not survive his bullet wound never really crossed my mind. The whole interplay of Henry and Shawn – of father and son, and all the myriad daddy issues that their particular relationship throws out – is so pivotal to the show that losing »
Psych has Finally Returned!And "Santabarbaratown 2" taught us three very important things:
Henry is still alive! Few things are more attractive than Shawn with a gun in his hand. Lassiter has a favorite kind of land mine.
Despite the fact we've waited almost a year for Psych to return, it picked up right where it left off in the Psych Season 6 finale. Henry was shot by Jerry Carp, one of his old partners. Luckily for Henry, Shawn wasn't far behind - and neither was the ambulance.
Though Shawn was clearly shaken a little more than sleep deprived, he attacked the case with a renewed vigor to bring Jerry Carp to justice.
The pursuit, however, proved rather intense, starting with Shawn's cathartic dismantling of Carp's house, which I found to be a clever and simultaneously meaningful way to express Shawn's distress at the situation while still keeping it completely true to the show and the character. »

If Quvenzhané Wallis wins at this year's Oscars, she will be the youngest Academy Award winner ever, aside from Shirley Temple, who won a non-competitive award in 1935. If Wallis doesn't win, she will still be among the elite dramatic forces of small children who are good at pretending to be other small children, which is a respectable accomplishment. Each of these starlets earned a permanent place in the day care of cinema history, and are the standard that child actors everywhere are measured against.
Here they are the best of the youngest and the youngest of the best the Academy has ever seen.
Justin Henry is the leader of this prestigious bunch because of his Best Supporting Actor nod for playing Billy Kramer in "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979). His childlike honesty and earnestness are the heart and soul of the film, »

A fishy musical based on Tim Burton’s fantastical 2003 film is coming to the biggest pond of all — Broadway.
The show, which also incorporates material from Daniel Wallace’s original novel Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, will open in the Neil Simon Theatre this October. Its Broadway run will be preceded by a five-week limited engagement at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre that begins in April.
Big Fish stars two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz as Edward Bloom, a charismatic storyteller whose tall tales have estranged him from his son Will (Bobby Steggert). As the elder Bloom’s health begins to fail, »
