Season 2 of The Affair premiered on Sunday night and the most memorable scene was when Josh Stamberg, who plays Max, bared all in front of the cameras. Male Full Frontal Nudity On ‘The Affair’ Helen (Maura Tierney) and Noah (Dominic West) are getting divorced and Helen has begun having an affair with Max, Noah’s […]

If you are a Maura Tierney fan (and if you aren’t, we should talk and set you right) Showtime’s The Affair Season 2 promises to be, er, a splendid affair if last night’s season premiere is any indication. Instead of adulterous couple Noah’s (Dominic West) and Alison’s (Ruth Wilson) dueling perspectives, this time we examined a stretch of time somewhere in between last season’s calamitous showdown at the Lockhart ranch and the unceremonious end to Noah and Alison’s happily ever after — from the points of view of the unfaithful dad and his beleaguered estranged wife Helen. (Tierney). • Miss the Season … Continue reading →

That's one way to return with a bang! The Affair, one of our favorite new shows of last season, returning for its second season tonight, and continued to ongoing he-said-she-said saga. Except now it's double the drama as the Showtime series finally introduced two more POVs into the mix: Helen's (Maura Tierney) and Cole (Joshua Jackson). And while we'll have to until episode two for Cole's, the premiere only gave us Noah (Dominic West) and Helen's sides of the stories this episode...which included full-frontal male nudity. Welcome back to The Affair, people! No, it wasn't Noah or Cole who bared all in the premiere, but Max (Josh Stamberg)—Noah's troublemaking Bff who is »
[Warning: This article contains spoilers from the first episode of the second season of The Affair.] When The Affair premiered its second season on Sunday night, it showcased more Maura Tierney than ever before. The actress’ added screen time is a welcome consequence of the Showtime drama’s decision to expand its trademark point of view storytelling structure to include the perspectives of Tierney’s character, Helen, as well as Joshua Jackson’s Cole. Season one relied exclusively on Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) to carry the story, but now that the couple is finally together, there are fewer opportunities

Showtime’s “The Affair,” despite its titular adultery and steamy sex, may be one of the most elegantly chilly series currently on the air. Season 1 found writer Noah (Dominic West) and waitress Allison (Ruth Wilson) falling in love behind their respective spouses’ backs over the course of a summer in Montauk. Each episode cut back and forth from his and her perspectives, replete with telling differences–while a third, present-day narrative found them both recounting their stories to a suspicious police officer investigating a hit and run. Now Season 2 adds the voices of the jilted spouses to the mix, no. »

The Affair returns for its second season on Showtime this Sunday, and the series picks up close to where season one left off, with its strengths and weaknesses fully intact. It's a show that has moments of real drama and intrigue, unfortunately wrapped in a not-all-that-interesting split narrative. Did you know that people often self-mythlogize, especially in moments of crisis, trauma, or romance? Indeed they do. As we head into season two, here's a list of whom and what to care about, from the most to the least important. Helen In season one, our only perspective characters were Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Noah (Dominic West). In season two, Helen (Maura Tierney) and Cole (Joshua Jackson) get added into the mix, too, so we get to see more of their lives sans original partners. Helen is the most interesting among the leads, especially as her life unravels before her. She's independently wealthy, »

The Affair was one of our favorite new series, let alone dramas, last year, and we certainly weren’t alone in that assessment, as it won the Golden Globe for best drama series. In its exploration of the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that shakes two marriages, Season 1 followed a Rashomon-style format by examining the memories of the two participants in the affair — Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson). Unsurprisingly, their recollections of the moments before, during and after the affair often differed wildly, and it was fascinating to watch West and Wilson play almost different … Continue reading →

Before she signed onto Showtime's "The Affair," Maura Tierney had done practically everything it's possible for an actor to do in television. Her first regular series role (on "The Van Dyke Show") was opposite no less than Dick Van Dyke; her second ("704 Hauser") was working for Norman Lear, on the same set where "All in the Family" took place. She's been the leading woman on a classic (if underappreciated in its time) sitcom in "NewsRadio," helped carry an enormous hit drama ("ER") as it transitioned away from its original cast, been the lead on a legal procedural ("The Whole Truth"), and was one of the original stars of "Parenthood" before a bout with breast cancer forced her to drop out of the role of Sarah Braverman. She had done all of those things on one broadcast network or another, which is why she agreed to play Helen Solloway, the wife »

Showtime is drawing the curtain today on Season 2 of The Affair, giving viewers a gander on multiple platforms prior to the drama’s return on October 4. The tactic mirrors the premium channel’s sneak-peek approach in July to Ray Donovan and Masters Of Sex. Starting today, viewers can watch a free, TV-14 version of The Affair, starring Dominic West, Ruth Wilson and Maura Tierney, on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgu-o7Ijkz0&feature=youtu.be" rel="nofollow"… »
ITV’s flagship period drama has made careers and revived others. As the final season looms, here’s a look at what the Crawleys and staff have gone on to do
Ever since Downton Abbey rocked the ratings with its first outing in 2010, there has been intense speculation about the effect it would have on the careers of the actors involved. Intended as a quiet Sunday-night historical romp, it has gone on to become one of the biggest British drama brands in history. Which must mean Michelle Dockery gets sent a lot of scripts. After five years, as Downton Abbey comes into its sixth and final series, we take a look at the cast members past and present who have made it into the, er, unique phenomenon that it is.

Dominic West and his bendy yogic friend’s visit to the Kumbh Mela festival offers, if not total enlightenment, at least a glimmer of understanding
The premise of West Meets East (BBC4) reads like the summary of a car crash read out by an eyewitness: actor Dominic West travels to India to visit the Kumbh Mela festival in the company of his old school friend Jim, a dreadlocked yoga expert also known as the fifth Baronet of Walthamstow. You can see why I turned to the evidence with a heavy heart.
That summary, it turned out, was an injustice. James Mallinson is a renowned scholar with a PhD in Sanskrit, as well as being a de facto member of a sect of yogic sadhus called the 13 Renouncer Brothers. He’s also really bendy. With West as his initiate, Mallinson provided an even-handed introduction to a fascinating, not to say deeply weird, »

Lookalike suicides in New Tricks, Dwayne Johnson flexes financial muscles in Us comedy Ballers and deputy head Mr Norman sorts stuff out in Educating Cardiff. Plus: Liz Bonnin explores India in Nature’s Wonderland, as does Dominic West in West Meets East and Liz McIvor surveys Britain’s waterways in Canals – The Making Of A Nation
Second part of Liz McIvor’s survey of Britain’s inland waterways. Tonight, she examines an unintended consequence of carving canals across the landscape. The expansion of internal transportation during the industrial revolution also advanced the sciences of geography and geology, it being difficult to successfully gouge through the earth unless you know exactly what it’s made of. The first geological map of England and Wales was created by William Smith, a surveyor on the Somerset coal canal. Andrew Mueller

After all the talk this week about Idris Elba potentially taking over the James Bond franchise, another under the radar candidate has quietly climbed the ranks as the potential new face of the franchise.
According to Variety, Irish betting site BoyleSports has been keeping track of the odds on different actors who could take over for Craig, and one candidate in particular has risen significantly in popularity. So who is this mystery man?
None other than Mad Max himself, Tom Hardy.
While Hardy's numbers have taken an impressive turn recently, rising from 6-1 odds to 4-1 odds (no doubt thanks to the success of "Fury Road"), fans of Elba shouldn't worry too much just yet. According to BoyleSports, Elba is still the frontrunner for the gig, tied with "Homeland" star Damian Lewis at 3-1 odds of becoming the new 007.
But a spokesman for betting site said that the market on »

A betting war is brewing across the pond for who will be the next James Bond. BoyleSports, an online bookmaker based in Ireland, has polled a new contender to take over the franchise, following Daniel Craig’s eventual departure.
The name is Hardy. Tom Hardy.
“The Next James Bond market has certainly come alive with all the support coming in for Tom Hardy, who is now 4/1 from 6/1 to take over from Daniel Craig,” said BoyleSports spokesman Liam Glynn in a statement.
The news is sure to leave Idris Elba fans shaken, not stirred. It follows Tuesday’s social-media outcry after 007 author Anthony Horowitz told the Daily Mail that Elba is “too street” to play the debonair English spy.
Elba is tied with former “Homeland” actor Damian Lewis as forerunner for the race with betting odds 3/1. Superman himself, “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill, also has substantial support, with BoyleSports slashing the odds at 4/1 — matching Hardy. »

With Daniel Craig indicating in an interview this week that the upcoming "Spectre" might be his final outing as James Bond, the betting over who his potential replacement might be has taken on new life.
Variety has spoken with Irish online bookmaker BoyleSports who has taken a poll regarding possible replacements and one name has moved up on the list - Tom Hardy.
Spokesman Liam Glynn says Hardy is now at 4/1 odds of taking over from Craig. That puts him equal second with current Superman Henry Cavill for the part. Cavill was in contention for the role in "Casino Royale" but was beaten by Craig, but this franchise has shown it has had a habit of hiring previously failed contenders for the role the next time around such as with Moore, Dalton and Brosnan.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies, the chatshow host, former sitcom star and the voice of Dory herself said: "I think that fish should be in the ocean... It's what this whole sequel is about."
"It's about rehabilitation and putting them back in the ocean," DeGeneres continued. "We have to protect our oceans. Hopefully that discussion starts with this film, because we really need to protect that environment."
DeGeneres's comments come after Seaworld has suffered significant losses in the aftermath of revealing documentary Blackfish.
Pixar president Jim Morris recently revealed that the majority of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, a large rehabilitation facility for marine life.
Dory will discover she was born there and freed into the ocean at a young age, which sets her off on a trip to find her parents. »
