Exclusive: Why Ryan Eggold Was Initially Skeptical of ‘The Blacklist: Redemption’

23 February 2017 8:20 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For a character originally meant to be killed off in the pilot of The Blacklist and then again slated for death at the end of season one, Tom Keen (played by Ryan Eggold) may be the luckiest character in TV history. Now, after surviving four seasons and proving himself as an essential part of The Blacklist, Keen’s story is being spun off onto The Blacklist: Redemption, which premieres Thursday, Feb. 23 on NBC.

Of course, neither Keen nor The Blacklist: Redemption, which also stars Famke Janssen and was first introduced with a backdoor pilot in a May 2016 episode of The Blacklist, would be anywhere without Eggold. “Working with Ryan and seeing what he did [with Tom],” creator of both shows Jon Bokenkamp tells Et, is what made the actor an asset to the show and what led them to consider Keen for the spin-off. “The way Ryan played the character became something that was fun to write to.”[p »

The Parents on A Series of Unfortunate Events Are Not Who You Think They Are

3 February 2017 5:20 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: spoilers for the entire season below! Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events premiered on Friday the 13th (apt, don't you think?) in January, and there's a lot to love. Neil Patrick Harris gives an inspired performance as the show's greasy villain, Count Olaf, and newcomers Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes (who play Violet and Klaus Baudelaire) are a delight. At the end of the first episode, we also get a pleasant surprise in the form of two unexpected guest stars: Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders, who play a mother and a father. Now, it's very easy to assume that these are the Baudelaire parents. Once you get to the end of episode seven, you'll learn that's sadly not the case. Let's recap. Episode one starts off with the brilliant Baudelaire children being informed that they're orphans now after their mansion burns down, with their doting mother and father - »

Exclusive: Taran Killam Talks ‘Hamilton’ and Supporting Cobie Smulders' Broadway Debut

3 February 2017 9:15 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While famous for his snarky impressions of Matthew McConaughey and Brad Pitt on Saturday Night Live, Taran Killam is now busy taking on his biggest real-life persona: King George III in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, taking over the role from Rory O’Malley and following Jonathan Groff, who was nominated for a Tony for his performance.

The Broadway debut is a welcome turn for the actor who spent six seasons earning laughs on NBC’s long-running live sketch comedy series and often brought a musical theater flair to his many popular sketches.

In August 2016, it was announced that Killam, who was busy filming his directorial debut Why We're Killing Gunther, was not returning for season 42, to the surprise of fans and the actor alike. "My gripe, if there's any -- and I really don't have many -- [is that] I'm a sentimental guy and I would have liked to have been given the chance to do some proper »

Lego Batman Movie Gotham Cribs Video Goes Inside Wayne Manor

2 February 2017 11:37 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has released a new preview for The Lego Batman Movie, giving fans a sneak peek into Batman's home life at Wayne Manor, a house which he says is the biggest in Gotham City. This "episode" of "Gotham Cribs" features Lego Batman (Will Arnett) starting the tour, confirming rumors that he is in Bruce Wayne's roommate. He then 'introduces' the Gotham billionaire. Bruce thanks Batman for being such a "great host and iconic superhero." The video later shows Bruce and Batman switching places through an open fridge door that conceals the costume change, after Bruce Wayne picks up a Batarang in the kitchen.

Warner Bros. debuted this hilarious video on YouTube earlier today. The tour continues, showing fans Bruce's elaborate pool with live dolphins, and an extravagant bedroom, which Batman never needs because he's fighting crime in Gotham City. The tour concludes with Wayne's "secret room," a.k. »

20 January 2017 1:02 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Closet Monster (Stephen Dunn)

This prologue glimpse at his youth (played by Jack Fulton) is a mash-up of tough coming-of-age-dramatics and a dark-edged imaginative whimsy that intrigues to draw you closer. »

A Series of Unfortunate Events: Here's Where Season 1 Leaves Off

17 January 2017 9:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

By the time the curtain drops on the first season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, there are a lot of plates spinning, a phrase which here means, "there's a lot of information to keep track of." Certain mysteries have pretty clear answers by the time the finale finishes: we knew in advance that we'd plop down right at the end of the fourth book, and we now know what the deal is with those parents (played by Cobie Smulders and Will Arnett). In weaving such a mysterious and enigmatic tapestry, though, there are still other things to keep track of that are a bit more speculative. Looking for a rundown of all the loose ends, cliffhangers, and more when it comes to the finale? Look no further. 1. Where the Story Leaves Off In the final minutes of the season, Mr. Poe has taken the Baudelaires to the Prufrock Preparatory School. »

Eight Execrable Elements of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

17 January 2017 11:49 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Exploring the brightness of the dark children’s show.

Execrable is a word which here means “extremely bad or unpleasant.” It is a word which, although appropriately dour in tone, does not actually describe Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, which is actually an exceptional, thrilling adaptation of a series of thirteen children’s mystery books by Daniel Handler. The show’s freshman season covers the first four books of the series, and follows the unhappy lives of three recent orphans as they bounce from caretaker to caretaker, outwit nefarious plots to steal their parents’ fortune, and uncover countless secrets along the way. Its clunky title and avoidance of easy categorization (it’s billed as a very dark children’s show) may be turn-offs for the uninitiated, but, for many reasons, A Series of Unfortunate Events is actually a bright spot of television that shouldn’t be missed.

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Finale Review: The Miserable Mill

16 January 2017 5:31 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Maybe this show is not diverging from the books, after all. 

On Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 7 and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 8, the children got closer to the truth as they found themselves working in the Lucky Smells Lumber Mill. 

Now, I need to speak about the reveal that Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders were not actually Bertrand and Beatrice Baudelaire.

That floored me. The kids walking towards that yellow door definitely made me think we were getting to watch the reunion play out. 

However, the constant sense of dread that seeps from every single scene of the show should have sent alarm bells ringing as soon as it was "revealed" that they were alive. 

In the grand scheme of things, it made sense because it helped set up the plot at Prufrock Preparatory School for both the Baudelaires and the Quagmires. »

24 Easter Eggs You May Have Missed in Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events

15 January 2017 8:55 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's a fact: everyone loves Easter eggs. I'm not talking about the Cadbury chocolate you eat in the Spring, although those are great, too. No, the Easter eggs I'm talking about are little inside jokes created by people behind the scenes and hidden in films and TV shows. Most of these references would go over the head of the average viewer, but true fans will spot them in names of characters, fleeting images, and pithy dialogue. Season one of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events has a ton of Easter eggs peppered throughout its eight episodes. Most are from the books, but some are more obscure. Did you catch them all? Take a look at some of the ones you may have missed. Warning: there are major spoilers, a word that here means "look away if you haven't finished watching the series"!

‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ Review: Netflix’s Lemony Snicket Series is Exactly What Kids Need in 2017 (Spoilers)

13 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” can be a rather complicated show to explain succinctly, but the new Netflix original series is clear about one point at the onset and throughout: You shouldn’t watch it.

Though I have to vehemently disagree with such advice, each episode opens with Neil Patrick Harris begging audiences to avert their eyes (via an opening song, aptly titled “Look Away”). Patrick Warburton (as Lemony Snicket) then cautions, directly to camera, “If you are interested in stories with happy endings, then you’d be better off somewhere else.” Even the musical number closing Season 1 circles around the line, “You might dream that justice and peace win the day, but that’s not how this story goes.”

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Review: The Bad Beginning

13 January 2017 9:33 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Baudelaire children are without a doubt the smartest siblings on the planet. 

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 1 and Lemony A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 2 essentially covered the events of The Bad Beginning, which was the first book in the wildly popular book series. 

There was just something about these kids that held my attention throughout the two episodes. The acting from Malina Weissman (Violet), Louis Hynes (Klaus) and Presley Smith (Sunny) was just breathtaking. 

All three turned in riveting performances as the children lost their parents in a house fire. The story is one that definitely tugs at the heart strings. 

Being sent to live with someone who is trying to steal your fortune sounds like something ripped straight from a daytime soap opera. But the execution on this series really goes above and beyond to immerse viewers. 

Mother: I'm worried about the children. »
