After a mere six episodes, HBO’s True Detective has become the breakout TV sensation of 2014, with ratings ascending each week to match the snowballing buzz over the show’s mystery (whodunit?) and its various teasing references (Yellow King? Carcosa?). In turn, the last couple of weeks has seen the rise of an oppositional force — not quite a backlash, but rather, a series of counterarguments, focusing on the show’s female characters (nude, young, incapable of resisting the balding charms of middle-aged detectives) and the grander possibility that the show’s various philosophical musings amount to a whole lot of hot air. »

It's impossible to deny the pleasures of watching long-time friends and sometime acting partners Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson onscreen together. Currently, the two men are starring in the first installment of True Detective, HBO's new anthology show. (Like American Horror Story, Detective will tell a new story about new characters set in a new location each season.) As Detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Harrelson), the two men are supposed to be investigating a serial killing. But in recent episodes, both men have been derailed by personal obsessions: Cohle by his past as an undercover detective, and Hart by his relationship with wife Maggie (Michelle Monaghan), who kicked him out of the house after discovering that he was having an affair with Lisa (Alexandra Daddario), a court stenographer.The show's given us plenty of time to watch Rust and Marty talk to each other as they work their case. »

I love talking about my favorite sitcoms, which means being able to talk about anything to do with New Girl gets me in the brightest of moods. There are few sitcoms that pump out as many laughs per minute as New Girl and fewer still that can make me care about the silly will they/won’t they relationships that are supposed to act as the centrepiece of the show. Nick and Jess are a rare couple that just work and have never felt anything close to unnatural. But that doesn’t mean their relationship is perfect. In fact, there will always be something that will test them: the opposite sex.
I might be inferring, but it’s too late: this train of thought has left the station. Alexandra Daddario is, according to TVLine, guest starring as a hot girl who has moved, along with her roommate, into the gang’s building. »

Matthew McConaughey‘s gritty, HBO crime noir True Detective has been earning rave reviews since day one, but it took a six-minute long, single-take nail-biter of a heist scene to truly bring the show to the next level.
In the aforementioned cuckoo bananas scene, Detective Rust Cohle (McConaughey) bursts into a housing project, survives a number of shootouts, runs outside to escape from a crowd of police, runs through yet another house, hops over a fence, and then — finally — makes his way into his partner Detective Hart’s (Woody Harrelson) car. Director Cary Fukunaga, who helmed all eight episodes of True Detective, told »

The 3D film will be directed by The Rock's Journey 2: The Mysterious Island helmer Brad Peyton (we love Hollywood friendships!). The movie is scheduled to open June 5, 2015. »

The actress has landed the female lead opposite Johnson in the New Line film, reports Deadline.
San Andreas stars Johnson as a helicopter pilot who is on a mission to save his estranged daughter after a huge earthquake in California.
Percy Jackson actress Daddario currently stars in HBO drama True Detective, while she has also landed a role in Fox's New Girl.
Last year, Daddario said that she would "love" to play Wonder Woman, but Johnson's Fast & Furious co-star Gal Gadot will play the superhero in Batman vs Superman. »
Rising star Alexandra Daddario has just snagged the female lead in Brad Peyton’s disaster flick San Andreas, which currently has Dwayne Johnson as its star. Apparently, the producers are attempting to “out-Roland Emmerich Roland Emmerich” with the film, and with a plot that sees Johnson as a pilot who ”sets out to rescue his estranged daughter after a massive earthquake hits California,” they just might succeed.
The release date is currently set for the super-hot summer of 2015 (more specifically, June), meaning that San Andreas will be facing competition from heavy hitters like Jurassic World and Fantastic Four. New Line is obviously expecting big things from this one, and it’s not hard to see why. After all, who wouldn’t want to see Dwayne “Franchise Restarter” Johnson take on an earthquake?
As for Daddario hopping on board, you may not have heard of the actress just yet, but »
