Latest (Surprisingly Entertaining) Marvel Movie Pits Rebel Avengers vs. Status Quo Avengers

'Captain America: Civil War': Chris Evans as rogue military leader of sorts. 'Captain America: Civil War' review: So good it made film critic and Prince fan forget pop icon had died April 21, '16, 9:53 a.m. – I was sitting down to watch an early screening of Captain America: Civil War on the Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California. I received a text inquiring if I'd heard the news. As a number of noted critics and studio types filed in – all immersed in their devices, we confirmed the news for each other – Prince was dead. One noted critic, whose name I will not mention because she may not want you to know she cusses like a sailor, posed the question aloud, “How the fuck are we supposed to pay attention to this now!?” It was a goddamn good question. I said in response, voice cracking, “No shit, I'm all fucked up! »

Review: The comma's the thing as 'Veep' heads to 'Nev-ad-a'

2 May 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on last night's Veep coming up just as soon as I tell you that the Nazis' polling numbers within Germany were through the roof... Though "Nev-ad-a" never settles on a consistent pronunciation for the eponymous battleground state, it does a nice job of advancing the recount storyline — here bringing in Martin Mull as Ben's mentor, Bob "The Eagle" Bradley, who once treated Ben (aka "Benny and the Jizz") the way the whole group treats Jonah now — while also putting other new stories and characters in play. In particular, John Slattery's a welcome addition to the recurring cast as Selina's new love interest Charlie Baird, whose relationship goes from secret to incredibly public because Mike's cleanse lowered his defenses too much at the wrong moment.

28 April 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We all know what happened on the last day of camp back in the summer of ‘81. Come to think of it, we also know what went down on the very first day at Camp Firewood. Many of us have been wondering what ever came of Beth, Coop, McKinley, Ben, Susie, Andy, Gail, Lindsay, Neil, Katie, Victor, J.J., Gary, Gene, Henry Newman and the rest of the crew. Well, wonder no more, as Netflix has just ordered up a new installment of the Wet Hot American Summer series entitled Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is the sequel to the prequel of the 2001 cult comedy film Wet Hot American Summer, written by Michael Showalter and David Wain and directed by the latter.

John Slattery to play Eisenhower in Churchill biopic

28 April 2016 2:19 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Mad Men and Spotlight star to play opposite Brian Cox in Churchill, one of five films in production for Embankment Films.

Mad Men and Spotlight star John Slattery will play Us Army General Dwight D. Eisenhower in upcoming biopic Churchill, which will star Brian Cox as the eponymous British war-time leader.

Shoot is due to get underway on May 23 in Scotland on the feature from The Railway Man director Jonathan Teplitzky.

Eisenhower served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II and would go on to serve as 34th President of the Us from 1953 until 1961.

Stanley Tucci had previously been lined up for the role but was unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts.

Netflix's 'Wet Hot American Summer' Will Return in 2017, But 10 Years Later

27 April 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How will the "Wet Hot American Summer" gang look in 1991? We'll find out in the second season on Netflix, this time following everyone 10 years after the events of the film and Season 1.

This all started as a 2001 movie, set on the last day of camp in 1981, which slowly became a cult classic comedy. In 2015, Netflix brought back the cast for "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," the hilarious prequel starring actors who were nearly 15 years older.

Now they're doing something that, age-wise, makes more sense: "Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later," a series of eight 30-minute episodes set in 1991, and scheduled to arrive in 2017. (We should probably expect an unhealthy dose of grunge and teen spirit.)

According to Netflix, David Wain and Michael Showalter will return as writers, with Wain also directing. There are no cast details at this point, but this series announcement video from »

Veep Season 5 Review

22 April 2016 3:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

A transition of showrunners is always a tricky move for any TV show to pull off, much less one as full throttle and unrelentingly scathing as HBO’s Veep. When the show’s creator, Armando Iannucci, announced last year that he would be handing off the reigns to Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm alum David Mandel, it was easy to be the tiniest bit cautious. Among many great feats, Veep‘s ability to walk the tightrope of a “heightened” Washington, D.C. – and be consistently hilarious – was something almost too precious to sour.

And soured it is certainly n0t – Veep is, as ever, a head-spinning political satire with enough cracks made by its delightfully potty-mouthed cast of White House scallywags as to feel increasingly less fantastical, and more intriguingly realistic, the longer it goes on. That may be truer than ever in the show’s fifth year, »

Nathan Lane, John Slattery to Lead 'The Front Page' on Broadway

28 March 2016 7:06 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Nathan Lane will play tabloid editor Walter Burns, with John Slattery as his star reporter Hildy Johnson in a Broadway revival of the classic newspaper comedy The Front Page, slated for the fall. Scott Rudin will produce the 1928 play by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, which was inspired by their years as Chicago journalists. It takes place entirely in the press room of Chicago's Criminal Courts Building, where hacks from various city papers play poker and swap wisecracks while waiting to cover a big case that takes an unexpected turn. Directing the revival is Jack O'Brien, giving him two

Veep season 5 trailer lands

23 March 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




President Meyer is back to save the country from being a musical... or the next Greece.

This post contains spoilers for Veep season 4.

In interviews for House of Cards, Kevin Spacey talked about how the show’s new seasons always seemed to reflect the political climate, even when episodes were written ahead of the news cycle. The real world political parallels in the storylines are mostly by chance, according to Spacey. Veep, being a half-hour political comedy, can react quicker, and in theory could capitalise on the topicality of an American presidential election campaign that seems to get increasingly less funny by the day.

That’s not necessarily how Veep operates, but in what’s sure to be a heated run up to the November elections in the Us, the series returns a renewed focus. HBO released the first trailer for Veep season 5 that touches on some »

Melissa Gilbert Talks Running for Congress in Michigan - with a Little Help from Her Famous Friends

With donations from famous friends like Jennifer Garner, Alec Baldwin and Michael Douglas, Melissa Gilbert's campaign for Congress in Michigan's 8th district is off to a well-financed start. That said, the 51-year-old actress, who rose to fame for playing Laura Ingalls Wilder in the 1970s hit TV series Little House on the Prairie, is facing a tough battle in the swingy, gerrymandered district that encompasses the roughly 100 miles of farmland between the state capital of Lansing and the upscale suburbs of Detroit. The district hasn't sent a Democrat to the U.S. House since the 1990s. The actress, who »

In the final seconds of Veep‘s Season 5 trailer, Selina handles a major financial crisis by making a comparison to male genitalia.

So, even though she might lose her Potus title to Bill O’Brien, Selina is clearly sticking to her vulgar, inappropriate guns in the HBO comedy’s fifth season.

‘Veep’ Season 5 Trailer Previews Economic Crisis, Presidential Hook-Ups

21 March 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amidst juggling a stock market crisis and Chinese hackers, President Selina Meyer is striving to “look presidential” in the first full trailer for season five of HBO’s Emmy-winning political comedy “Veep.”

From the looks of it, season five picks up where the season-four finale cliffhanger left off: a shocking tied election between President Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Senator Bill O’Brien (Brad Leland).

The clip also previews the president and her personal aide Gary Walsh (Tony Hale) channeling their faith, an Olympic kayaker photo-op gone wrong and a steamy hook-up between the president and “Mad Men’s” John Slattery.

“I’m just saying I’m not that kind of a president,” Louis-Dreyfus explains to Slattery in the clip, right before asking him where her shoes are post hook-up.

The trailer also confirms that the president’s core staff is as incompetent as ever, struggling to respond to a tied election. »

'Veep' Season 5 is here, just when we need it most

21 March 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Game of Thrones isn't the only show returning to HBO on April 24. Veep (and Silicon Valley) will also premiere that night, and if the trailer for Julia Louis-Dreyfus show is anything to go by, its fifth season won't miss a beat despite creator and showrunner Armando Iannucci's departure. Louis-Dreyfus's Selina Meyer is doing everything she can to win the election, which, as we left the show at the end of Season 4, is tied. So she's still trying to win this thing by praising Olympic kayakers on their gold (oops, bronze) medal while dealing with Chinese hackers and a plummeting stock market.  Sounds rough, but she also gets to hook up with Mad Men's John Slattery at some point, so that's not so bad, right?   »

John Ostrander: Spotlighted

6 March 2016 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Having missed it in the theater, I finally caught this year’s Oscar winner for Best Picture, Spotlight, on Blu-Ray. I thought it was mighty impressive, deserving of all the kudos and awards it has gotten.

Directed and co-written by Tom McCarthy and starring Michael Keaton (having a brilliant career renaissance), Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci and a whole slew of really good actors, it tells the account of the breaking of the pederast priests story in the Boston Archdiocese by the Spotlight investigative team of the Boston Globe. The four journalists working for Spotlight are long form investigators who can work on a story over a long period of time, sometimes years.

The movie is both riveting and appalling, making clear how the Roman Catholic hierarchy in Boston – and elsewhere – covered up the sexual abuse of children. It’s a scandal that continues to »
