Woody Allen: A Career in 20 Hilarious, Brilliant Lines

13 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This Friday, Café Society, the latest release from writer/director/comic godhead Woody Allen, waltzes into theaters — the 47th feature Allen has directed over a career spanning 50 years. (Yes, we're counting New York Stories.) He's had box-office successes and outright bombs, Oscar-winning masterpieces and critically panned duds. But regardless of his movies' receptions (and the reoccurring rumors about his personal life), he's managed to pump out a film a year with impressive regularity. Some key elements have stayed the same — once a jazz clarinet slinks onto the soundtrack, audiences know exactly who they're dealing with. »

NBC Bets on Maya Rudolph, Martin Short to Revive a TV Mainstay

26 May 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the buzz around Beyonce’s “Lemonade” still fresh, many people have been asking Maya Rudolph to do her popular impression of the singer just one more time. Will she? “It’s got to be right,” the comic actress says in her best Beyonce voice. “It’s got to be just a little sour, and just a little bit sweet.”

Rudolph may find her moment next week, when she and actor Martin Short – known for everything from “Sctv” to giving voice to “The Cat In The Hat” on PBS – tackle an interesting mission. On May 31 at 10 p.m. on NBC, the pair will launch “Maya & Marty” a six-episode exploration of what for  a younger generation of viewers will be a new frontier: a variety show, complete with special guests, singing and comic sketches. Not everyone could hold their own under such circumstances, but Short and Rudolph can do more than just get laughs. »

On this day in pop culture history: Michael J. Fox said goodbye to ‘Spin City’

24 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

16 years ago today, Mike Flaherty bid adieu to City Hall and Michael J. Fox said goodbye to Spin City. It was the actor’s final episode as a regular on the ABC sitcom after playing the lead role since the show premiered in 1996. Fox had revealed to the public in 1998 his battle with Parkinson’s disease. As his symptoms worsened, during Spin City’s fourth season, Fox, then 38 years old, announced he would be leaving the show at the end of the season to spend more time with his family and to raise money for Parkinson's research and awareness. Spin City lasted another two seasons after Fox’s departure, with Charlie Sheen as the new lead. Fox did return for appearances in a few episodes in the final season. In that May 24, 2000 episode, the season 4 finale, Mike Flaherty fired himself to save everyone else on the mayor’s staff in the midst of a scandal, »

18 May 2016 7:51 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Coldplay was the musical guest on Tuesday's Late Show With Stephen Colbert and singer Chris Martin kindly lent his songwriting talents to the late-night show's opening theme song.

"The tune is great, but I just feel like this needs words, needs lyrics, so I've been working on some right here," Martin told Colbert backstage of the Jon Batiste and Stay Human's Late Show theme. The singer's lyrical contribution: "Doo-bee-shoo-bee-doo-bee-doo-bee-shoo-bee-doo-doo."

"You're a [bleeping] genius," Colbert exclaimed. Martin then joined Batiste and Stay Human onstage during the opening credits to help them perform his latest composition. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Bresson, Akerman, Maddin, Peckinpah, ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ & More

31 March 2016 8:31 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

“Welcome to Metrograph: A-z” brings George A. Romero‘s greatest zombie picture, Day of the Dead, on Friday. Saturday includes Abbas Kiarostami‘s Close-Up, Robert Bresson‘s The Devil, Probably (also playing on Sunday), and Coming Apart; Sunday, see the Maggie Cheung-led Comrades: Almost a Love Story.

“Three Wiseman” offers two Wisemans: High School and Titicut Follies. »

Entertainment News: Film, TV Star & Oscar Winner Patty Duke Dies at 69

29 March 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Coeur D’Alene, Idaho – She was a lesson in duality. One of her most famous roles was as “identical cousins” on “The Patty Duke Show,” and Anna Marie “Patty” Duke also made public her fight with bipolar disorder. She was also a talented actress, winning an Oscar as teenager for “The Miracle Worker.” Ms. Duke passed away on March 29th, 2016, at the age of 69, at her home in Idaho.

Anna Marie Duke (her friends call her “Anna”) became Patty Duke when she was only eight years old. She went on to fame in the role of Helen Keller in the original 1959-61 Broadway run of “The Miracle Worker,” co-starring Anne Bancroft as Annie Sullivan. The film version (1962) garnered Duke the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, the youngest to ever win at the time at age 16. The next year she starred in “The Patty Duke Show,” with its familiar theme song beginning »

Bill Murray, a favorite guest of the Late Show With David Letterman, made his Late Show With Stephen Colbert debut Friday with a bizarre, wordless cameo. During Colbert's opening monologue, the host told a heartwarming story about a friendship between a penguin and an old man. Colbert then informed the crowd of the episode's guests, only to stop and berate a sleeping man in the front row for putting his feet up on the stage. That man was Bill Murray.

"Excuse me sir, would you mind getting your feet off the stage for a second? »
