11 Things We Learned About Goodfellas from Saturday's Tribeca Q&A

9 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night, the Tribeca Film Festival presented a 25th anniversary screening of Martin Scorsese’s 1990 masterpiece Goodfellas as its closing night event. After the film, actors Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Paul Sorvino, Lorraine Bracco, and screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi joined The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart onstage for a Q&A. (Joe Pesci couldn’t make it, De Niro joked, and instead sent a message: “Fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. Fuck.”) Scorsese and producer Irvin Winkler, still filming their long-anticipated Silence in Taipei, also couldn’t make it, but sent in video messages introducing the film. Here are some of the things we learned from the discussion.Author and co-screenwriter Pileggi didn't believe it was Scorsese calling him. After Wiseguy, Pileggi’s book about the life of Henry Hill, came out, Martin Scorsese called the writer numerous times to talk about adapting it. Pileggi, a writer for New York (hey! »

Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta Reunite for ‘Goodfellas’ Anniversary at Tribeca Film Festival Closing

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival closed Saturday night with a 25th anniversary gala screening of Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas,” held within the gold-spun rococo of the Upper West Side’s Beacon Theater. The screening was followed by a panel with stars Paul Sorvino, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco, “Wiseguy” journalist and writer Nicholas Pileggi, and (inevitably) Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro, moderated by “The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart. (The comedian sometimes slipped into a slightly Pesci-esque accent, conceding that if anybody from the production met him right around the time “Goodfellas” came out, he would have been annoying as hell.)

De Niro and Tribeca’s other co-founder Jane Rosenthal introduced the film, with the movie icon offering that this year’s 14th iteration of the festival marked “13 more than we intended, and tomorrow we start work on the 15th.” He then went on to read a email from Joe Pesci (the »

This week in tv news: ‘Daredevil’ renewed, ‘Sirens’ cancelled

25 April 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2.  Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either.  They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there’s our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of.  A very special thank »

Another Brian Williams Blunder? NBC News Probes ‘Daily Show’ Interview (Report)

24 April 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC News’ ongoing investigation of Brian Williams has expanded to a heretofore unknown incident involving comments he made on “The Daily Show” about what the anchor witnessed during the Arab Spring, The New York Times reported Friday.

The internal investigation that was ordered in the wake of Williams’ six-month suspension was already known to be focusing on at least five other questionable incidents.

In February 2011 Williams made an appearance on the Comedy Central show in which he described to host Jon Stewart an incident in which he witnessed on the ground in Tahrir Square a confrontation between protesters and government troops.

But the testimony potentially conflicts with evidence from NBC footage that places Williams in a balcony “overlooking Tahrir Square,” not in the middle of the protest.

The New York Times’ report noted that the internal investigation has yet to reach a conclusion about that incident, or about any of »

Watch Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jon Stewart Debate Superman vs. Batman

24 April 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Astrophysicist/geek icon Neil deGrasse Tyson dropped by The Daily Show on Thursday, humoring Jon Stewart with the most scientific of debates: Batman versus Superman. "Batman is just a guy with a nice belt," the host argues in the above clip. But Tyson's response is more philosophical, as he defends the Caped Crusader's allegiance to Gotham City and its people. 

"Who does Superman report to?" Tyson asks (to which Stewart responds, "The guy in the ice castle"). "So it's no one we know. It's no one we have any insight into. »

Meryl Streep, Ava DuVernay, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy School Jon Stewart About the ‘Radical Act’ of Being a Woman in Hollywood

23 April 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Wednesday night, three powerful female forces in Hollywood — Meryl Streep, Ava DuVernay, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy — appeared on a panel in New York City at Tina Brown's annual Women in the World summit. But rather than having a chat about their shared experiences of being a woman in the film industry over a glass of wine à la Amy Schumer, the three enlightened self-proclaimed "asshole" Jon Stewart on disrupting the patriarchy. (He's out of The Daily Show August 6, so now's probably their last chance.) Between clips from Streep's upcoming film Suffragette and Obaid-Chinoy's documentary about Pakistani working conditions, the four talked for nearly 40 minutes about art as activism, making men uncomfortable, and the radicalism of being a woman filmmaker. They enjoy making men who watch their films uncomfortable. Obaid-Chinoy, who won an Oscar for her 2012 documentary about acid attacks on women in Pakistan, "enjoys" making men uncomfortable »

Jon Stewarts Blasts Gop Candidates Over Gay Marriage Answers (Video)

22 April 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Stewart went to town on the Republican candidates Tuesday for their array of answers, or non-answers, on gay marriage. The Daily Show host spliced clips of reporters asking Governor Scott Walker, Governor John Kasich and Senator Ted Cruz if they would attend a same-sex wedding. “If you can’t handle these questions, how are you going to handle Putin asking you to go to a gay wedding?” Stewart asked. See video: Jon Stewart 'Didn't Realize That People in Indiana Could Not Practice Religion' Borrowing from the infamous Hillary Clinton 3 a.m. phone call campaign ad, Stewart suggested the 2016 election will come down to. »

Jon Stewart revealed at the end of Monday night's The Daily Show that his last episode as that program's host – or the beginning of his career as a "non-host," as Comedy Central calls it – will take place August 6th. "I mentioned to you that I would keep you up to date on any new information we had about the transition of the program," Stewart told viewers. "We do have some specific information.

Jon Stewart announces 'Daily Show' August departure date

21 April 2015 6:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On last night's "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart announced that his last episode as host will be on August 6, and promised — at least until the audience seemed to object — that "I will be wearing a suit. I will more than likely be showered." In addition, to raise money for autism charities, Stewart is conducting a contest for seats to his final taping. Still no word on when Trevor Noah will take over, though right after Labor Day would seem to make sense, given the timing of Stewart's exit. Here's the full announcement from the end of last night's show: »

Jon Stewart Reveals the Date of His Final Daily Show Appearance

20 April 2015 9:28 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Our last glimpse of Jon Stewart helming the satirical news coverage at The Daily Show will be August 6 (if that feels too soon, it's because it is). Stewart unveiled the date of his final Daily Show broadcast during Monday night's show. He avoided boos and other sad noises by joking about what he's going to wear, plugging an insane special fan package for his last show, and selling hugs, maybe.Here's a transcript of Stewart's update, which kind of felt like someone bailing on a party too early, with no remorse, only awkward jokes. (Then again, we understand he has his reasons ... and all good things must come to an end, etc.) Hey, that's our show. One quick thing before we go. I mentioned I'd keep you up-to-date on any new information we had about the transition of the program — all those other things. We do have some »

Find Out The Date of Jon Stewart's Final Daily Show, Also Known As The Day The Tears Begin

20 April 2015 9:13 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's the moment none of us wanted to be waiting for. Jon Stewart just announced on this evening's show that his final episode of The Daily Show will air on August 6, meaning we now have less than four months left with the man we have come to think of as our comedy news dad. While we may be the only ones who actually think of him as that, it's still going to be a tough day for all of us. If we start now, maybe we'll be prepared by the time the episode finally airs. While there's still quite a bit of time for the specifics of that final, sure-to-be-epic episode to be worked out, Stewart had a couple of assurances. "I will be wearing a suit. I will more than likely be showered," he »

Stewart made the announcement at the very end of the evening’s broadcast, just before rolling the program’s signature “Moment of Zen” final segment. He offered few details about what he might do for his final broadcast, but did reiterate a contest that would give a viewer the chance to attend the program’s last taping. »

Is Jimmy Fallon's Game Show Version of Late Night Ruining Comedy?

Read More: Review: 'Veep' Season 4 Episode 2, 'East Wing,' Starts a Guessing Game Last week, "Conan" writer Andres du Bouchet went on a moderate Twitter rant about the deplorable state of late night comedy. Though his tweets have since been removed, his boss, Conan O'Brien, has responded, and most people still don't know who du Bouchet is, let alone how to pronounce his name, the outcry started a debate among comedy fans.

Jon Stewart Sheds More Light on Why He’s Leaving The Daily Show

19 April 2015 9:55 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The end of Jon Stewart's Daily Show reign is nigh, and in an interview with the Guardian published over the weekend, the host explained why. It turns out there are multiple reasons, ranging from family duties to the presidential election to self-fulfillment. As far as what's next, that's still somewhat unclear. "I would do what I’m doing. Whether it’s standup, the show, books or films, I consider all this just different vehicles to continue a conversation about what it means to be a democratic nation, and to have it written into the Constitution that all men are created equal — but to live with that for 100 years with slaves," he told the Guardian. "How do those contradictions play themselves out? And how do we honestly assess our failings and move forward with integrity?" Though the future is still a little hazy, the past and present are less so. »
