'I, Tonya': Margot Robbie on Becoming Tonya Harding

'I, Tonya': Margot Robbie on Becoming Tonya Harding
Tonya Harding is still best known as the woman who maybe, possibly, potentially played a part – for the record, she denies it – in her figure-skating rival Nancy Kerrigan getting hit in the knee just before the 1994 Olympics. Margot Robbie knows this – the Australian actress spent months studying the sad backstory of Harding's life in preparation for the biopic I, Tonya, and she was well aware of what the public's opinion on the disgraced athlete was. But the more Robbie dug, the more she developed sympathy for the fallen champion. When

Twin Peaks Recap: Sleeping Beauty

Twin Peaks Recap: Sleeping Beauty
The following recap, by its very nature, contains major spoilers about this week’s Twin Peaks. Proceed at your own peril.

Goodbye Richard Horne, you evil little demon. He was killed by his father. Yes, his father. We were all correct: Evil Coop was Richard’s dad after all. (Which means Evil Coop likely raped Audrey Horne while she lay in a coma. For more on our potentially sleeping beauty, see the Bonus Points section below.)

"Twin Peaks," Episode 15 Recap: How Beautiful Is This

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.The best things come to those who wait, and Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) has long been dreaming of the moment that opens Part 15 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival. "I've been a selfish bitch to you all these years," says his one-eyed wife Nadine (Wendy Robie), who's walked a long way—a Dr. Jacoby/Dr. Amp gold, shit-digging shovel slung over her shoulder—to the cash-only Gas Farm that Ed has run for most of his life. She states the obvious: Ed is in love with Rr Diner propietor Norma Jennings (Peggy Lipton), and she, Nadine, has always stood in his way. Those days are finally over. Ed is reluctant to think of this as anything beyond another of his spouse's manic episodes.

David Letterman to Host Netflix Interview Series

David Letterman to Host Netflix Interview Series
David Letterman is returning to a regular TV gig, setting a deal with Netflix for a show that will combine long-form interviews with reports from the field.

Netflix has ordered six episodes of the hourlong series, to be produced by New York-based RadicalMedia and Letterman’s Worldwide Pants banner. The untitled show is targeted to debut next year.

Netflix’s announcement said the show would feature “in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor.” It’s understood that production is set to begin in the fall and that some of the interviews may be filmed in front of an audience.

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix,” Letterman said. “Here’s what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely.”

Letterman, 70, has mostly been off the screen in the two years

Casting a Zz Top Movie Biopic Would be Epic

All kidding aside, over the recent Michael Stipe and David Letterman beard bro tweets, and the Twitter fan’s mention about who will direct them in the “Zz Top biopic”; the topic of making one has been stuff of rumor since 2011 when Billy Bob Thornton was named as readying his production company to film a Zz Top movie called Rough Boys. Thornton and the band members are longtime friends, and Texas neighbors, and to top it off (excuse the pun), Thornton was a member of Tres Hombres, one of the many Zz Top cover bands. Robert Rodriguez, was rumored to

The Top 5 Uses of Zz Top Songs in Movies

You know when their sound hits that you can’t resist tapping your foot and getting into the music. In films Zz Top is just as addictive. It’s easy to see considering that they’ve had such a prolific career and have seen their songs used for TV and film alike. There was even an episode where one of them was linked to a King of the Hill character through family. Their unique sound is infectious in a way that makes a person want to sing, dance, and just have a good time in general. 5. Evan Almighty – Sharp Dressed Man

How 'Twin Peaks' Brought David Lynch's Warped American Vision to TV

How 'Twin Peaks' Brought David Lynch's Warped American Vision to TV
It's a question we've been asking since the late Seventies: What exactly is David Lynch, and where the fuck did he come from?

With the ballyhooed resurrection of Twin Peaks, his legendary 1990-1991 TV series, Lynch yet again has stepped onto the cultural stage in a big way, and earned his profile as America's bullgoose weirdo. Magazine profiles once again try – and fail – to ascertain who exactly he is and what he's doing. Worse, they try to normalize him, place him within established cultural traditions and treating him like a wise man from Planet Whatzit.

'I Love Dick': This Is the High-Lit Cowboy-Lust TV Show You Need

'I Love Dick': This Is the High-Lit Cowboy-Lust TV Show You Need
Sometimes the heart wants what it wants – even when the brain knows the heart is a lust-drunk idiot. Jil Soloway's brilliant new Amazon series I Love Dick is a darkly comic parable about the crossroads of art and sex, based on Chris Krauss' beloved 1997 cerebral cult novel. Kathryn Hahn is Chris, a struggling indie filmmaker who finds herself at an artists' retreat in Marfa, Texas, where she falls under the spell of local artist Dick, played by Kevin Bacon. Chris was just planning on passing through town to drop off

Kurt Russell on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

James Hunt May 2, 2017

We snagged a quick chat with Kurt Russell ahead of the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. Here's how it went...

Joining the cast for the second Guardians Movie, Kurt Russell plays Ego, the Living Planet, who introduces himself near the start of the movie as Peter Quill’s father. We got to talk to the cult movie star about how he got into the Guardians, how you prepare to play a planet, and what song he’d most like to hear in a Guardians movie.

So, what was your relationship with the original Guardians movie when you joined this one?

I was doing publicity for Hateful Eight, and suddenly one day my phone started going off a little bit, people around me were buzzing and asking “Hey, are you going to do this? Are you going to play Peter Quill’s father?” and I just

Miranda Lambert, Willie Nelson, Keith Richards and More Pay Tribute to Merle Haggard

Miranda Lambert, Willie Nelson, Keith Richards and More Pay Tribute to Merle Haggard
Since Merle Haggard’s death a year ago, his widow, Theresa, says the pain of the loss has been so difficult that she hasn’t been able to turn on a radio for fear of hearing his songs. “It’s been hard,” she says, “to even look at pictures because it’s been too emotional.”

All that changed on Thursday night, as she stood on stage at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena – behind her, a billboard-size portrait of her husband, in front of her, a sea of fans eager for a reminder that Hag lives on in his music.

It Doesn’t Get Better than 80s Zz Top Videos: It’s That Simple

I had the pleasure of seeing Zz Top perform live about two years ago and I can say without hesitation that it was easily one of my favorite concerts of all-time. Not only was the concert great because the crowd consisted of bikers, people like me, and every other human from any walk of life, but because they were just so damned good. Not only was Billy Gibbons spectacular on the guitar but he knew exactly how to play with the audience. It was a perfect blend of all their 70s, 80s, 90s stuff and plenty of others. Honestly it

Looking Back at Duck Dynasty’s Finest Moments

The Robertson family has brought 11 seasons of fun filled reality show episodes to A&E viewers. Who wouldn’t want to watch a show about guys with Zz Top style beards and their spouses deliver home truths and sorting out family problems while they manufacture duck hunting kazoos? The Robertson family under the media spotlight had their share of controversy. The viewership dropped after the opinionated patriarch Phil Roberston’s 2013 comments about sinners ruffled quite a few feathers. Still, despite the fallout from the GQ article, the show still managed to maintain a loyal viewership. A&E tried to suspend Phil for

‘Bad Santa 2’ Director: Billy Bob Wanted ‘Any Crude, Awful Joke’ in Film

‘Bad Santa 2’ Director: Billy Bob Wanted ‘Any Crude, Awful Joke’ in Film
“You can’t do a Bad Santa with just me,” said Billy Bob Thornton at the “Bad Santa 2” premiere at AMC Loews Lincoln Center in NYC. “You gotta have Brett [Kelly] and Tony [Cox], because it’s the trio. We’re the Zz Top of nasty Christmas movies.”

It’s been 13 years since “Bad Santa” bowed and now it’s back with even more raunchy jokes and loud-mouthed humor from its original faces – apart from the late Bernie Mac. Thornton reprises his role as Willie, who along with Kelly (who plays Thurman Merman) and Cox (who portrays Marcus), gets into even more holiday shenanigans.

This time around, they’re joined by big names including Kathy Bates, who plays Thornton’s mother, and Christina Hendricks, who is Thornton’s love interest.

Bates, however, is not your typical mom.
