Netflix sets 'Orange Is The New Black' for June, 'Wet Hot American Summer' for July

2 March 2015 12:35 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix set its late-spring/summer release schedule on Monday (March 2) morning, setting premiere dates for a slew of specials, returning favorites and new shows. The highest profile of the launch dates is the June 12 drop for Season 3 of "Orange Is The New Black," which has emerged as an Emmy favorite and a SAG Awards winner since the second season hit last June. Although Season 3 will be premiering on June 12, "Orange Is The New Black" will, once again, be submitting for Emmy consideration a season behind. Netflix will also have an important decision on its hands with new Emmy regulations superficially defining comedies as half-hour series and hour-longs as dramas.  Netflix will have to specially petition if the streaming service wants "Orange" to be up for the Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for the second straight year. "Orange" will also suffer in the newly redefined Guest Acting categories, since Uzo Aduba won »

Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek's Mr Spock, dies at age of 83

27 February 2015 9:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83.

The actor and filmmaker, who rose to fame as Mr Spock in the Star Trek TV series and movies, died from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife confirmed to The New York Times.

Nimoy revealed last year that he was suffering from the disease, caused by smoking in his younger years. He had been treated in hospital earlier this week.

Nimoy began his career in the early '50s teaching acting and appearing in B movies, such as 1952's Kid Monk Baroni, and TV roles. He also served in the United States Army in 1953.

In 1965, Nimoy played Mr Spock for the first time in the rejected Star Trek pilot 'The Cage'. He retained the role when the show was taken to series and portrayed the character on the small screen until 1969.

After success as Spock, Nimoy played Paris for two seasons »

Last Man on Earth Is Just Ridiculous Good Fun—if You Can Get Past the Beard That Terrified Small Children

27 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You know that whole beard trend that's going on in Hollywood right now?  Well, Will Forte has been rocking it longer...and wider...and grosser than any other actor, thank you very much. It's all for his bold new comedy Last Man on Earth, premiering Sunday on Fox. But unlike Josh Duhamel or Chris Pine, please note that Forte's monstrosity did not make the ladies swoon. "People would cross the street [to avoid me]," Will tells me of his admittedly "disgusting" facial hair, which he insisted on growing in real life. "My niece and nephew are young and they were terrified."  While nearly every "new" comedy out there these days is derivative of »

Meet the Designer Behind the Oscars' Gorgeous Title Card Sequences

25 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every year the title cards that designate the Oscar categories and the films nominated in each get more and more interesting thanks to an innovative designer named Henry Hobson. Hobson, who's worked on the last seven Academy Awards broadcasts recently did a quick interview with Slate to detail his process. In addition to the title cards for 23 categories, Hobson also designed the imagery used during John Legend and Common's performance of "Glory" from "Selma," no doubt contributing to the production of David Oyelowo and Chris Pine's tears. He's also designed opening and closing titles sequences for such films as "Snow White and the Huntsman," "Sherlock Holmes" and "Robin Hood" as well as seasons 1 and 2 of "The Walking Dead." For the Oscars, Hobson sees all the films in advance, then sketches, pulls together materials and begins coordinating teams. The entire process must be completed in just over a month, »

Common and John Legend's Powerful "Glory" Performance Will Go Down in Oscars History

Common and John Legend have been performing "Glory" a lot this award season, and when they brought the Oscar-nominated song from Selma to the Academy Award stage, they topped themselves. In their most intense performance yet, the stage was turned into a re-creation of the film, Common rapped about Ferguson, and then a crowd joined them on stage.
