When Mae Whitman Called Lauren Graham Her Hero on Parenthood, She Actually Meant It

20 May 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's been four months since we said good-bye to the Braverman clan, and just when we thought we had recovered from that tear-soaked series finale, TV mother and daughter gave us a real-life Parenthood moment when Lauren Graham presented a Gracie Award to her TV daughter Mae Whitman for Outstanding Female Actor in a Breakthrough Role. “You got to watch a rebellious teen grow into a responsible mother,” Graham told the audience. “And I got to watch Mae Whitman blossom into a masterful performer whose gripping portrayal of Amber is clearly a career-defining role and, simply put, outstanding.”After giving Graham a big hug, Whitman admitted that she was “crying already” and extolled the genius of Lauren Graham: "When you're acting with her, I could go in and not have any idea what I was doing and look into her eyes and know that I was going to be »

Roland Emmerich Adds Another To Independence Day 2

14 May 2015 2:23 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The most recent piece of Independence Day 2 casting news kicked off an almighty social media storm, with Maika Monroe seemingly stepping into the role once played by Mae Whitman. But unless someone has a weird personal animus against eight-year-old actresses, Mckenna Grace’s addition to Roland Emmerich’s should pass by without causing the same tumult.The actress, a veteran of Disney’s live-action/puppetry show Crash & Bernstein, will slot in alongside fellow newbies Monroe and Liam Hemsworth and plays someone called Daisy. We don’t know what her character will be getting up to yet, but it’s highly unlikely she’ll be a fighter pilot.The remaining cast members are a mix of other fresh recruits (Jessie Usher, Travis Tope, Joey King, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lance Lim, Sela Ward) and veterans of the first film (Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch), hoping to fill the big Will Smith-shaped gap. »

What's New on Netflix, TV, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: May 11 - May 17

11 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

TV Worth Watching

"Mad Men" (Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m.)

It's the end of an era. Pour yourself an Old Fashioned and toast the end of "Mad Men," 'cause Don Draper leaves us on May 17. Farewell, Don/Dick, Peggy, Joan, Roger, and -- wherever she is -- Lois the foot-crushing secretary. #TeamLois4Life

"Scandal" (Thursday on ABC at 9 p.m.)

"Scandal" is so devoted to its own name that every episode feels like a season finale. But the real end of Season 4 happens May 14 with "You Can't Take Command." ABC promises it will be "shocking" and since it's "Scandal," we believe it.

"Saturday Night Live" (Saturday on NBC at 11:29 p.m.)

Louis C.K. will host the Season 40 finale with Rihanna as musical guest. We have high expectations for both stars, »

Nominees for the Critics Choice Television Awards include “24: Live Another Day” and many more

7 May 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV and this awards season (it’s mostly film or bust for me in that regard), but I watch a handful of shows and follow along with the race. Not enough to accurately do predictions, mind you, but I did think this nomination announcement was worthy of a mention. As such, today we have the list of Critics Choice nominees, which I’ll be revealing to you shortly. Among the titles that fared best this year with the nominations, we have Justified lead the way with five nominations. Following that, we have The Americans, The Good Wife, and Transparent with four apiece. »

Golden Globe and Emmy-winning actress Sela Ward will be the leader of the free world in Independence Day 2.

Hmm, Independence Day 2 Recast Mae Whitman’s Role

30 April 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the original Independence Day, a young Mae Whitman played the president's adorable (and ridiculously resilient, given what happened to her mom) daughter. Bill Pullman has already agreed to reprise his role as President Whitmore, and given that Whitmore's daughter is reportedly Liam Hemsworth's character's love interest in the film, most fans assumed that meant Whitman would return, too. But as a weary fighter pilot might say after punching out an alien, welcome to Hollywood: Fox has recast the role with It Follows star Maika Monroe for unknown reasons. (According to The Hollywood Reporter, actresses like Gabriella Wilde and Britt Robertson were also considered.) Understandably, Whitman's fans are upset — including her Scott Pilgrim co-star Anna Kendrick:And judging from Mae's response, it would appear the decision to recast her wasn't exactly mutual: She's also retweeted a story critical of the recast. Vulture has reached out to Fox for comment »
