The Isle of Man is famous for a few things – cats and the Tt Races among them – now it’s the setting for this independent comedy starring The Mighty Boosh‘s Julian Barratt. Unfortunately for Mindhorn/fortunately for the island, it will probably become a distant memory.
Hit shows and sitcoms are notoriously unsuccessful when transferred to the big screen, but sometimes they are just trying to give the fans what they want. Mindhorn cannot even lay claim to this as an excuse for its shortcomings. It bears many of the hallmarks many of the big comedies of the 2000s, but is not a spin off of any of them, making this a rather pointless exercise.
The premise is promising enough, even if it does sound reminiscent of some pictures that have come before it. A washed-up actor, by the name of Richard Thorncroft (Barratt) is assigned by his agency »

The Alphabet network has given a put-pilot order to a live-action sitcom reboot of The Jetsons, TVLine has learned.

Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future) will serve as an executive producer, with Family Guy writer Gary Janetti penning the pilot.
Janetti’s presence may be a hint about the tone of these new-look Jetsons, which “looks at America’s favorite future family through a modern filter, »

Liz Garbus is shooting a documentary series about the New York Times’ aggressive coverage of the Trump administration for the Showtime premium cable network. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker has been filming inside the newspaper’s newsroom for the past six months to gather footage for the series. Showtime declined to comment, but the show is intended to look at both how the newspaper is covering Trump and the larger role of the fourth estate. The film marks Garbus’s first collaboration with Showtime; she’s utilized several other distribution partners in the past. “What Happened, Miss Simone?,” which earned Garbus an Academy Award nomination in 2016, was Netflix’s first prestige documentary, and Garbus followed it with the doc “Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper” for HBO.

Quantico is welcoming back a familiar face when it returns for its rebooted third season.
Tovey's Harry Doyle left the series somewhat abruptly, with exiting showrunner Joshua Safran confirming in interviews after his final episode that the show's up-in-the-air moment would serve as Doyle's last. He was last seen with another character holding a gun to his head, with the moment never resolved onscreen.
Doyle is described as "part Thomas Crown, part grown-up Artful Dodger »

Harry Doyle was last seen in Season 2, right before Tovey had to leave the show to perform in the United Kingdom’s National Theatre production of Angels in America. “We had a very hard out with him,” then-showrunner Joshua Safran told TVLine at the time, confirming the actor’s exit. “He actually ended up staying longer than he was even initially planning, because he loved the show so much and we love him so much. »

Director: John Jencks
Stephen Fry is a national treasure in our part of the world and to a certain extent across the globe. What’s less well-known is his output as a novelist, but director John Jencks hopes to redress that with an adaptation of the author’s 1994 comedy.
Roger Allam stars as Ted, a washed-up poet who’d rather spend his time wallowing in a bath off his face on whiskey than interacting with the world around him. He is the hippo of the title, roaming around with an ungainly wit. This behaviour threatens to ruin him once and for all after he gets verbal at the theatre in the process of writing a review for a pretentious show. Dumped by his employers, he is unexpectedly picked up by Jane (Emily Berrington), a terminally »

Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield star in National Theatre Live’s Angels in America at select Cineplex theatresNathan Lane and Andrew Garfield star in National Theatre Live’s Angels in America at select Cineplex theatresAdriana Floridia6/23/2017 11:45:00 Am
Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Angels in America has had a long life. From its debut in 1991 in San Francisco, to the Emmy award winning HBO mini-series adaptation, and even as an opera that was first performed in Paris, France, Angels in America is a timeless story that keeps resonating with audiences. In fact, it’s more relevant than ever.
Following a group of New Yorkers in the mid-1980s, in the midst of the AIDs crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, Angels in America touches on themes of life, death, love, sex, heaven, and hell. The National Theatre Live production stars Andrew Garfield as Prior Walter, and he’s joined by Nathan Lane, James McArdle, Denise Gough, and Russell Tovey. It is directed by Tony award winner Marianne Elliott, who also helmed stage productions of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse.
Angels in America is a play in two parts, and on July 20th, 2017, you can watch a live broadcast of Part One: Millennium Approaches at select Cineplex theatres. Part Two: Perestroika will be broadcast on July 27th, 2017. Encore dates will follow in August.

Are there such things as miracles? For the slightly wet-behind-the-ears Logan family, who seem positively embalmed in wealth and luxury, there certainly is. Cynical, down-on-his luck theatre critic and former playwright Ted Wallace (Roger Allam), on the other hand, has little time for such claptrap.
The Hippopotamus, directed by John Jencks, is adapted from the 1994 novel by Stephen Fry, and the author’s dry, PG Wodehouse-esque wit is all over this off-the-wall, cheerfully foul-mouthed movie. If it has the air of an old-fashioned Merchant Ivory production - posh people, rolling hills, horses, that kind of thing - then it’s at least served up with a pleasing side order of acidic humour.
It all begins when Ted, who’s never »
Andrew Garfield busted out a wig and his best backflip for his lip syncing performance of Whitney Houston‘s classic “I’m Every Woman” — and Twitter is loving it. Surprised audience members at the London stop of the “Werq the World” drag revue captured the “Hacksaw Ridge” actor wearing a curly wig while performing on stage. According to E! Online, Garfield attended Tuesday’s show with Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Russell Tovey, his co-stars in the London revival of the play, “Angels in America.” Also Read: Andrew Garfield to Star as Afghanistan War Reporter in Indie 'Black Lion' Time »

A post shared by Michael (@mj_hewitt) on May 30, 2017 at 4:07pm Pdt When it comes to lip-syncing Whitney Houston, Andrew Garfield is a natural. On Tuesday, the actor surprised the audience at the drag show revue Werq the World Tour in London to perform the Grammy winner's hit "I'm Every Woman." Not only did Andrew, who attended the show with his Angels in America costars Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Russell Tovey, don a curly wig for the number, but he also showed off his swift moves as he danced around the stage and did a show-stopping back flip. We're not gonna lie, we would pay good money to see him face off with his ex-girlfriend and lip-sync extraordinaire Emma Stone on Lip Sync Battle. Now who do we have to call to make that happen? What a show, what a night! Thank you as always »
