Pot TV: Celebrate 4/20 By Watching the Most Memorable Stoner Shows

20 April 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s not a federally recognized holiday, but the peaceful spirit of April 20 – otherwise known as the marijuana-enhanced 4-20 – is one worth celebrating. While still technically an illegal substance in most areas of the world, some of our favorite TV shows are clearly enhanced by being under the influence. Pot imbues them with a certain sensibility that may heighten the mood, even without chemical assistance.

Here are some of our favorite series, all available on streaming services, that acknowledge weed as a normal part of life for many Americans (even though a lot of the characters on this list probably shouldn’t be described as “normal”).

“Bored to Death”

Jonathan Ames’ HBO comedy was a celebration of both pot’s mellow and extreme mind-altering states. On the one hand, a little bit of suspension of disbelief was needed to buy into the oddball adventures of Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman), a novelist turned unlicensed private investigator. »

17 April 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Every year, celebrities, filmmakers, journalists and movie fans flock to the Tribeca neighborhood in lower Manhattan for the Tribeca Film Festival, an illustrious celebration of film and television that features some of the most exciting projects and panel discussions of any media festival in the country.

Founded by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the festival has helped revitalize the city and remind both filmmakers and fans alike of New York City’s valued place in film and TV while becoming a welcoming community for voices and perspectives from all over the world. “It’s also a fabric of our city. So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.” 

The 2017 festival, which runs April 19-30, continues to expand beyond film and TV with »

Exclusive: Brian d’Arcy James Comes Full Circle as King George III in ‘Hamilton’

14 April 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“The crown is quite heavy. The cape is quite heavy. I do remember distinctly the first time I went out, not expecting how heavy those two things would be,” Brian d’Arcy James recalls to Et about wearing King George III’s lush costume in the Off-Broadway production of Hamilton. It’s an outfit he will soon don again when he returns to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit biopic musical about Alexander Hamilton on Friday, April 14. “I don’t want to say [it will] wreak havoc on you, but if you’re not prepared, it can give you an extra sense of anxiety that you didn’t have before." 

While the crown has weighed down some, it’s not an issue for Spotlight actor, who is reprising a role he originated, even though he's playing it for the first time on the Broadway stage. "It's a full-circle moment for me," James exclaims over the phone as he eagerly awaits starting »

13 April 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Animals, HBO’s animated comedy about the many, many creatures that populate New York City, is turning its attention to humans with a special live-action episode aptly titled “Humans.” And Et has an exclusive first look at the unscrupulous Dr. Labcoat (played by RuPaul Charles) and his dutiful assistant (John Early) as the evil conglomerate Pesci Co. prepares to roll out the “Green Pill,” a cure for the virus plaguing the city.

In a “now or never” moment for creators Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, the episode -- premiering Friday, April 14 -- comes in the middle of its second season, shifting the focus onto the humans who often appear in wordless vignettes, connecting one animal’s story to another. “We knew we wanted to try to do something like this since we became a TV show,” Matarese explains »

Brie Larson Wishes Captain Marvel Movies Existed When She Was Growing Up

26 March 2017 2:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At the end of Marvel's Comic-Con presentation last year, the studio finally made it official, revealing, after months of rumors, that Brie Larson will play Carol Danvers in the highly-anticipated Captain Marvel movie. It is believed that she will first make her debut in Avengers: Infinity War, which is currently filming right now, although it isn't known when filming will begin on the standalone Captain Marvel movie quite yet. While doing press for her new blockbuster Kong: Skull Island, the actress revealed that she wished she had a Captain Marvel movie when she was growing up. Here's what she had to say below.

"I want to create this symbol of strength and humour for women that I really wish I had had growing up. It feels so valuable. We need to break through that glass ceiling, women go to the theatre to see a movie with a male lead, and »

Marvel TV/movies crossover "wouldn't work", says Anthony Mackie

21 March 2017 12:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 21, 2017

Fancy seeing Falcon and Daredevil hanging out? Don't hold your breath, Anthony Mackie suggests...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a big place, and it's getting bigger all the time. You've got the solo movies that started with Iron Man, the cinematic team-ups that began with The Avengers, the TV shows that started with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series that kicked off with Daredevil.  

Fans have long been hoping that these worlds could properly collide, with a crossover between the big screen Avengers, the small screen Defenders (Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist), and perhaps even some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being a popular dream.

Today, though, Anthony Mackie - who made his McU debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as Sam Wilson/Falcon - has told the »

Jérôme Salle: "I'm the kind of director who loves to tell stories with pictures more than words." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In 2015, at an Oceana event hosted by Cobie Smulders, I spoke with Jacques-Yves Cousteau's granddaughter and Expedition Blue Planet filmmaker, Alexandra Cousteau. In my conversation with The Odyssey (L'Odyssée) director, Jérôme Salle, we explore the world around Alexandra's grandfather portrayed by Lambert Wilson in his film with Audrey Tautou as Jacques' wife Simone, Pierre Niney (Adrian in François Ozon's Frantz) and Benjamin Lavernhe as their sons.

Simone (Audrey Tautou) and Jacques Cousteau (Lambert Wilson)

With a screenplay, co-written with Laurent Turner, loosely based on the books by Jean-Michel Cousteau (My Father, the Captain: Life with Jacques Cousteau) and Albert Falco (Capitaine de La Calypso) and a score by longtime Wes Anderson composer Alexandre Desplat, Salle takes us on a personal family journey at sea.

Keegan-Michael Key On Why Less Money Means Smarter Movies, and Why the Whole Country Needs Anger Translators — SXSW 2017

10 March 2017 12:07 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As half the duo who created the now-defunct comedy series “Key & Peele,” Keegan-Michael Key knows a lot about being funny. Perhaps just as notably, neither he nor longtime collaborator Jordan Peele will let themselves be defined by it.

While the pair co-wrote and starred in last year’s missing-cat romp “Keanu,” their more recent work shows considerable effort to work outside the confines of comedy. Peele recently made his directorial debut with the wildly successful racially themed horror film “Get Out,” and Key has cast a wide net with his acting gigs. Last year, he had a major role in Mike Birbiglia’s ensemble piece about an improv troupe, “Don’t Think Twice,” and he’s currently shooting Shane Black’s big-budget reboot “The Predator.” This month, he’ll surface in “Win It All,” Joe Swanberg’s latest effort, which is produced by Netflix and will premiere at the SXSW »

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 »
