How Cobie Smulders Met Her 'Unexpected' Indie-Movie Future

23 July 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Cobie Smulders is not accustomed to being singled out. The How I Met Your Mother star and Marvel universe apparatchik tends to operate in the company of others, which is why she found herself somewhat stricken with panic earlier this year at the Sundance premiere of her latest film, Unexpected, which opens in theaters and on demand this Friday. "Oh shit," she recalls thinking. "I'm in every scene."

It's true, she is — though it's about time. Fans of her CBS sitcom, which concluded its nine-season run last year, might agree »

10 July 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sherlock Christmas Special Sneak Peek: Holmes and Watson Travel Way Back — and Hit the Big Screen?

Don’t blame a certain Mr. Holmes for the long gap in between fresh Sherlock installments. As he points out in the initial trailer for the show’s upcoming Christmas special, “Dismembered country squires are notoriously difficult to schedule.”

PBS’ New Season Will Feature Walt Disney Documentary, Civil War Drama ‘Mercy Street’

3 June 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

PBS this coming TV season will boast an unvarnished look at entertainment entrepreneur Walt Disney, a revival of Ken Burns epic documentary “The Civil War” and something that has been a rarity on the network in recent years: a drama financed by PBS set in America.

The network best known these days for pickups of British productions like “Downton Abbey” and “Call the Midwife” will in January debut “Mercy Street,” a six-part Civil War epic that is produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and is the first American drama to air on PBS in more than a decade. Such stuff “is expensive,” noted Beth Hoppe, chief programming executive and general manager of general audience programming at PBS, in an interview, but the network expects to monetize the product through international distribution. Josh Radnor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are among the members of the show’s cast.

Nashville's Laura Benanti Talks 'Heartwarming' Memorial Day Gig, Weighs in on Deacon Cliffhanger

21 May 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sadie Stone might have left Nashville before the end of the season, but Laura Benanti‘s heart is firmly ensconced in the ABC drama’s goings-on.

Take, for instance, her thoughts on Deacon’s sister Beverly, a hard-to-love character who grudgingly donated part of her liver to her ailing brother and who might have died at the end of the season finale.

“That beyotch!” Benanti says, chuckling. “Ugh, she’s so crazy. I hate her!” She calls out the title of Scarlett’s ballad of pain, inspired by Beverly’s borderline abusive mothering. ‘Black Roses! Black Roses!'”

In January, word arrived that Ridley Scott was producing and developing a new TV drama for Us network PBS set during the American Civil War and medical staff treating wounded warriors. Now we know the title – Mercy Street – and that the likes of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Radnor and Gary Cole will be among the cast. Mercy Street focuses on two volunteer nurses whose political ideology falls on opposite sides of the conflict. New England abolitionist Mary Pinney (Winstead) works alongside Confederate supporter Emma Green (Hannah James) in the luxury hotel owned by the latter’s family that has since been converted into a Union Army hospital.Radnor is aboard as Jebediah Foster, a civilian surgeon who grew up in a privileged Southern slave-owning household. The scripts will be drawn from memoirs and letters of real medical volunteers at Mansion House Hospital.The main trio is bolstered by Cole, Peter Gerety, »

Mercy Street: Ridley Scott’s Civil War Drama Sets Cast, Adds Directors

29 April 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Civil War will always be relevant in television and film, mainly due to the sociopolitical lines that were clearly drawn from the outset of the conflict. It will no doubt not come as a shock to some readers to learn that those lines have barely been moved in this day and age, and the territories where these philosophies and beliefs differ are still, essentially, the same. The hope, one would think, in looking at the Civil War once again is that by uncovering the roots of this divide, we might find some way of mending them, which is seemingly the thematic undercurrent of Mercy Street, the upcoming PBS series and the first original American series to air on the channel in over a decade. As Deadline reports this morning, the Ridley Scott-produced series has firmed up its cast, with Josh Radnor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Gary Cole, and Cherry Jones leading alongside Peter Gerety, »

Review: 'Unexpected' is slight, but Cobie Smulders and Gail Bean shine

26 January 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "How I Met Your Mother" Redemption Tour is in full effect at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Jason Segel has received the best reviews of his career for his gimmick-free performance as David Foster Wallace in "The End of The Tour." Cobie Smulders is proving her mettle as a leading lady in "Unexpected." And Josh Radnor is nowhere to be seen with a follow-up to "Liberal Arts." [Sorry. Easy punchline. I actually thought "Happythankyoumoreplease" was a perfectly respectable sign of Radnor's potential as a writer-director.] Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris has been too busy winning Tonys and preparing to host the Oscars to be in anything Sundance-y this year, while Alyson Hannigan remains chronically underused. Smulders also stars in "Results," which premieres at Sundance on Tuesday, but at least her Festival got off to a solid start with "Unexpected." Directed by Kris Swanberg, who co-wrote with Megan Mercier, "Unexpected" is a very slight movie, almost absurdly short »

Blog: Why How I Met Your Mother is a tribute to Bollywood

24 January 2015 1:11 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As someone who is a huge admirer of Bollywood cinema, I also happen to be a big fan of Us sitcoms. I have seen many great shows from beginning to end that include Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond and of course How I Met Your Mother. Although the classic TV show ended last year, I only recently finished watching the final season where the male lead Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor) ultimately ends up with the love of his life Robin Scherbatsky (played bv Cobie Smulders). As someone who happens to be a fan of both Bollywood and Us sitcoms, I cannot help but notice that How I Met Your Mother is ultimately a tribute to all the love stories that are told in the world of Bollywood. It is something which I have rarely seen in a Us television show before, but How I Met Your Mother has »

Movie Poster of the Week: An Interview with “Frank” Poster Designer Nicolette Vilar

16 January 2015 8:55 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Last month I selected the poster for Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank as my favorite poster of 2014. In the article I invited the “as-yet uncredited designer at P+A studio” to “come out from behind the mask and take a bow,” and so I was very pleased when I got an email from Nicolette Vilar a few days later letting me know that she was the P+A designer behind the giant papier-mâché head.

Nicolette, it turns out, was the perfect designer for a film about a fractured rock band, because as well as being a talented artist she is also the on-again, off-again lead singer of the all-female punk pop group Go Betty Go who have recently reunited and have a new Ep out this month. The band formed in 2001, released two CDs and played on the Vans Warped Tour, but Nicolette left in 2005. She recently rejoined the band with »
