It's fitting that Clint Eastwood and John Wayne both have the same birthday week. (Wayne, who died in 1979, was born May 26, 1907, while Eastwood turns 85 on May 31). After all, these two all-American actors' careers span the history of that most American of movie genres, the western.
Both iconic actors were top box office draws for decades, both seldom stretched from their familiar personas, and both played macho, conservative cowboy heroes who let their firearms do most of the talking. Each represented one of two very different strains of western, the traditional and the revisionist.
As a birthday present to Hollywood's biggest heroes of the Wild West, here are the top 57 westerns you need to see.
57. 'Meek's Cutoff' (2010)
Indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt and her frequent leading lady, Michelle Williams, are the talents behind this sparse, docudrama about an 1845 wagon train whose Oregon Trail journey goes horribly awry. It's an intense »

Do some films get made as secret sequels to unconnected earlier films, turning those older films into prequels? It may just be random coincidence, but some movies seems to work perfectly as continuations of earlier, unrelated films. The earlier films may not be official prequels, and they weren’t made by the same people—or even the same studio—but there are hints, if you look for them, which indicate that later filmmakers possibly looked at earlier projects and secretly wrote their newer films as informal sequels to those prior hits. Or maybe this is all just unplanned happenstance. Look at our list and see what you think.

"All of the things that define Olivia Pope, the walk, the hair, the clothes, the Prada bags, the being in control, all of those elements were ripped from me and ripped from her," reveals actress Kerry Washington about a pivotal moment in the recent fourth season of "Scandal." In a video chat with Gold Derby (watch below), she discusses the showcase episode "Run," which might just be her submission to Emmy judges this year. She adds, " Who is the essence of this person without her toolbox? All of the things that help her have her mask of Olivia Pope. Who is she underneath all of that?"

David Letterman has garnered millions of fans during his three decades on television, but only a few can say their admiration for the latenight host truly inspired their very own career. Jimmy Kimmel is one of them.
“David Letterman, growing up, was my Jesus to the point where it’s embarrassing,” Kimmel said at Variety‘s Actors on Actors Emmy Studio.
In discussion with Kerry Washington at Variety‘s studio, Kimmel fessed up to his obsession for Letterman, as he had his own dreams on bursting onto the latenight scene.
“You know, I had ‘L8NIGHT’ written on my my license plate. It was personalized,” he admitted, giving a nod to Letterman’s first latenight series, which premiered in 1982 on NBC and ran for 11 seasons before he famously left for CBS. Kimmel added, “I had a Letterman jacket … my 16th birthday cake said, you know, ‘Late Night With David Letterman’ with the cake. »

Fox miniseries “Wayward Pines” may not have stood a chance, premiering against ABC’s mighty “Scandal” season finale. Still, the numbers were not good for M. Night Shyamalan‘s small-screen offering. “Pines,” which stars Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard and Juliette Lewis, managed just a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.8 million total viewers. Fox is anticipating/hoping for a strong bump in delayed viewing, as ABC may have been the priority last night for fans drawn to both shows. It wasn’t all great for “Scandal,” however, as the Kerry Washington show was down 32 percent from April 2014’s season finale. NBC’s “The Blacklist” fell. »

“Scandal” and “The Blacklist” happen to share a time period these days, but they also share a certain jaundiced view of government – or rather, of the decades-old shadow governments and secret spy organizations that really hold the strings of power. Yet while the NBC drama actually shifted course in an unexpected and invigorating way, the centerpiece of ABC’s “Tgit” lineup flung around absurd plot twists so promiscuously even die-hard fans will likely need the summer to recover.
When NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt described “The Blacklist” finale as a “game-changer” during this week’s upfront presentation, the temptation was to roll your eyes. After all, the show had kicked the can down the road regarding FBI Agent Elizabeth Keen’s background so many times as to merit skepticism.
The episode, however (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), more than delivered on that promise, not just transforming Keen »

Who knew? The first African American to appear on television was famed Olympian Jesse Owens, who was featured on an experimental NBC broadcast in 1936.
This little-know fact and many others were shared Wednesday night at the Paley Center for Media’s tribute to African-American achievements in television. The gathering at Cipriani Wall Street was emotional and educational for many in attendance.
Oprah Winfrey was host for the evening which included special tributes to Cicely Tyson and Bet Networks, which is marking its 35th anniversary this year. The presentation offered a look at black achievements in a range of sectors, from news and sports to variety shows, drama and comedy.
Tyson, it was noted, was the first black actress to wear her hair naturally on a primetime series when she was a regular on CBS’ “Eastside, Westside” in the early 1960s.
“We’re not there yet,” Tyson told the crowd regarding equality on screen, »

Instead of "You Can't Take Command," maybe Scandal's season four finale should've been called "You Can't Take What's Going to Happen to Fitz and Olivia!" The fan-favorite pairing looks to be in serious trouble judging from this clip we got our hands on from the ABC hit's May 14 finale. And in true Olitz fashion, the major moment goes down over the phone. "I just wanted to say hello and good luck with Mellie's election," Olivia (Kerry Washington) says in the clip, but we can tell she's thinking something else. How? Because our head Gladiator can barely keep herself together, on the verge of tears. And the last thing she says to Fitz (Tony »

ABC opted for stability in the fall, launching just five new series with no major shakeups to its nightly strategies. The network, which had momentum this past season with improved ratings, is clearly hoping to maintain its uptick, simply swapping dramas for dramas and comedies for comedies.
ABC is poised to win the May sweep in adults 18-49 and will finish as the only Big Four broadcast network up in the demo vs. last season. For the season, ABC will finish a competitive third in 18-49 and is No. 1 with all sports excluded from averages.
Monday nights will stay put in the fall with “Dancing With the Stars,” followed by “Castle,” which just set both Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion, “our two beloved heroines and heroes,” said ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee, for its eighth season, following lengthy contract negotiations. After “DWTS” hands out the mirror ball, “The Bachelor” will come in, »

ABC has renewed their popular Scandal TV show for a fifth season.
On Scandal, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) defends the public images of the most powerful people in Washington but now it's her own image that needs protecting. This season, the cast also includes Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Scott Foley, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Guillermo Diaz, Jeff Perry, and Joshua Malina.
Last season, Scandal saw a big bump in the ratings. This time around, they just held steady, averaging a 2.94 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.33 million viewers. Still, that was a close second to the network's biggest new drama How to Get Away with Murder with a 2.96 rating and 9.76 million.
