Emmy Fyc: Best Actress, Comedy - Gillian Jacobs in "Love"

17 June 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're sharing Emmy FYCs as nomination balloting continues. Here's guest contributor Sean Donovan...

When Gillian Jacobs angrily shouts “Surprise! I’m not the cool girl!” to her semi-boyfriend Gus (Paul Rust) on Netflix’s comedy series Love, she is speaking as an actress in Hollywood just as much as she is in character as Mickey. Jacobs was introduced to most viewers as “the cool girl,” Britta in the cult hit Community, initially serving the role of a fantasy love interest: a gorgeous twenty-something with just enough problems to appear “complicated,” but not in any especially strenuous or taxing capacity for male viewers. The cool girl who’s fun at parties, has great taste in everything, and is just chill. She’s not like those other girls! »

How Paul Rust, Gillian Jacobs & Claudia O’Doherty Fell In ‘Love’ – Emmys

16 June 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Since first arriving in Los Angeles from his home state of Iowa, Love co-creator Paul Rust has arguably been an overnight success. He was one of the first Los Angeles alums out of the Upright Citizens Brigade’s Hollywood outpost after they opened in 2005. There, along with his writing partner Neil Campbell, they developed a reputation for churning out vaudevillian-gross out sketches, in both the late-night stage show Not Too Shabby and with their sketch group A Kiss From… »

Emmy Quickie: How ‘Love’ Star Paul Rust Mined His Own Romantic Past for Netflix Hit (Video)

2 June 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Judd Apatow‘s Netflix series “Love” has a universal appeal because it tackles an experience familiar to everyone, says star Paul Rust. “Have you ever liked somebody and wanted them to like you back? Then you should watch our show,” the actor told TheWrap in a recent interview. He and co-star Gillian Jacobs mined their own personal romantic histories for their on-screen performance as a couple, a process Rust says brought them closer off screen as well.

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

1 June 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jeffrey Tambor won the Emmy Award last year for his groundbreaking portrayal of transgender Maura Pfefferman on “Transparent,” he acknowledged backstage that though his show is a comedy, it deals with very serious issues. “Lives are at stake,” he said. “This (award) is bigger than me.”

Tambor could well repeat his win this year, though he faces strong competition, often from other actors who combined pathos with their comedy. Previous nominees Anthony Anderson, William H. Macy and Will Forte all manage to find laughter while tackling such topics like racism (“Black-ish”), alcoholism (“Shameless”) and the extinction of the human race (“The Last Man on Earth”). Freshman series “Master of None,” “Difficult People” and “Baskets” gave leading men Aziz Ansari, Billy Eichner and Zach Galifianakis, respectively, the chance to show a more serious side.

Previous nominees who could repeat include Don Cheadle, who already has four consecutive nominations for “House of Lies, »

Listen: Judd Apatow Talks Garry Shandling, 'Girls' & More In 90-Minute Podcast Interview

25 April 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not every great artist is a great podcast guest. There are plenty of writers, filmmakers or actors who, while their work is electric on screen, can be a little dull in conversation, or react curiously to the format of long-form conversation in that way. But then there are certain people who are boon to any podcast they might appear on, and Judd Apatow is one of them. Over the years, the comedy titan’s popped up on most of the biggest talk-show-style podcasts, from Wtf and You Made It Weird to Brian Koppelman’s The Moment and Bill Simmons, and he’s always been an engaging, honest and funny listen. Late last week, Apatow popped up for a second time on the Nerdist podcast, and it’s one of his best appearances to date.

Paul Rust dishes working with Judd Apatow on new Netflix comedy series 'Love' (Exclusive Video)

15 April 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

“People have got to be careful what they say around us now, because a lot of times it will end up popping up on the show,” admits Paul Rust as we chat via webcam (watch above) about his new Netflix romantic comedy “Love,” which he and his wife (Lesley Arfin) created with Judd Apatow. He plays Gus, an on-set tutor, who begins a relationship with Mickey (Gillian Jacobs), a radio programmer.  -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Emmy Predictions The actor is quick to clarify that this on-screen pairing bears no resemblance to his real-life. “If I were an outsider looking into a show, and I heard two of the three co-creators were basing a show about their relationships I would be ‘urgh, pass, I’m not going to watch this.’ Lesley and I just hope people don’t think: ‘they think they are so special »

TV Review – Love Season One

11 April 2016 5:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Love – Season One

Starring Paul Rust, Gillian Jacobs, Claudia O’Doherty, Tracie Thomas, Andy Dick and Jordan Rock.

Synopsis:

A program that follows a couple who must navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment and other things they were hoping to avoid.

I got turned off from Love before I even bothered to watch the trailer. I knew all I needed to know about it, in my opinion, and that was the fact that it was produced by Judd Apatow. Apatow, who has been involved in some outstanding works of comedy like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Anchorman, has also produced some of my least favourite films ever; namely, Seth Rogan movies. I don’t really have a problem with Seth Rogen, per se, or in fact with Apatow (except perhaps his exhaustingly mechanical use of the hot girl stereotype, which incidentally surfaces in Love – but more on that later), I just really, »

Paul Reubens on Bringing Back 'Pee-wee' and How the Iconic Character Came to Be

24 March 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

His name may sound diminutive, but everything about Pee-wee Herman is big, big, big.

Beginning with 1985's "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," the debut film for the one-of-a-kind character first created on stage in the early '80s by actor/writer/comedian Paul Reubens, there's always been something outrageously outsized about the antics of the gray-suited, red-bowtied man-child.

And now he's as big as ever, returning to the spotlight for the first time in 25 years since his last major appearance onscreen for a new Netflix film "Pee-wee's Big Holiday," produced by comedy impresario Judd Apatow. Taking a step out of character, Reubens joined Moviefone to discuss why Pee-Wee's return is indeed something to celebrate.

Moviefone: Why was now the right time to bring back Pee-Wee?

Paul Reubens: Well, really, the time to bring back Pee-wee was 10 years ago, when I originally started doing it, but it didn't work out that way. »

Review: 'Pee-Wee's Big Holiday' is a gentle delight, both new and familiar

22 March 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick note: my computer finally gave up the ghost last week, and I’ve spent the past five or so days scrambling to get back up and running. I’ve never gone this long without posting at HitFix, not since we began the site, and it’s a disconcerting feeling to just watch pop culture flow by without having the tools be part of the conversation. It’s amazing how ingrained it is at this point, and even when I’m working as hard as I can, I still always feel like there’s more that I’d like to write and publish than I’m able to actually accomplish. Case in point: I was hoping to publish this review last Friday night after my sons joined me and my girlfriend for an evening built around the Netflix premiere of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, directed by John Lee.

SXSW Review: ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday’ Starring Paul Reubens, Alia Shawkat & Joe Manganiello

18 March 2016 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s a choice moment of acid-trip hallucigenia in “Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday” — the latest outing from Paul Reubens and his signature character — that’s on on par with the now-iconic Large Marge scene in the beloved “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” from 1985. That this ghoulish moment feels stale-yet-still-disturbing, though, embodies the torn meta-duties of this sweet-natured lark: produced by Judd Apatow and co-written by “Love” writer/star Paul Rust and Reubens, “Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday” wants to be “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for a new generation of Pee-Wee fans, pursuing the classic beats of the aforementioned Tim Burton film while throwing in hints of new journeys. But the result, while featuring some superbly non-sequitur moments and gags, feels forced into a road trip package caught between self-awareness and naivety. Square in the center of this conflict is actor Joe Manganiello, so present in this film that he reaches Furiosa-esque heights of franchise. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’

17 March 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Watching “Pee-wee's Big Holiday,” a Netflix movie receiving a limited theatrical release, brought to mind the sensation evoked by Paul Reubens’ stage revival of the character several years ago: An initial rush of nostalgia and enthusiasm, which by the end had given way to silliness fatigue, and the question, “When will this be over?” That’s not a slam of the Pee-wee Herman experience, really, as much as a reminder that some things are best consumed in smaller doses than a 90-minute movie, much like those little root-beer barrels that Reubens’ perpetual child so adores.

Produced by Reubens with Judd Apatow, and co-written by the star with Paul Rust, who’s featured in Apatow’s Netflix series “Love,” “Big Holiday” is hardly a big idea. It is, rather, a collection of little ones, with Pee-wee having a chance encounter with a kindred spirit, played by Joe Manganiello, getting invited »

Watch: Netflix's 'The Ranch' Trailer Pits Papa Sam Elliott Against Son Ashton Kutcher in Multi-Cam Comedy

What's next for the guy who took over "Two and a Half Men"? Well, another laugh-track sitcom of course! Only this time, Kutcher will be streaming on Netflix and — gasp! — swearing openly!  Read More: Gillian Jacobs & Paul Rust on The Real, Romantic Horror Stories That Inspired 'Love' The veteran TV star who broke out in "That 70's Show" is reuniting with one of its stars in "The Ranch," a new Netflix original series in which Danny Masterson co-stars as the brother of Kutcher's former football star turned family rancher, and the son to a father who's always tried to give his children a realistic perspective on life. The tonally awkward trailer above certainly promises an interesting mix of somber life lessons and tired "phrasing!" jokes, but with a cast including Sam Elliott, Debra Winger and Elisha Cuthbert, there's bound to be something great in the first 10 episode season. »

Love: Why It Should Be Your Next Netflix Binge

7 March 2016 11:27 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Netflix has been rolling out their original series on a regular basis so far in 2016 so it’s understandable if Love slipped under your radar until now. Touting Judd Apatow as the co-creator should be the number one selling point for comedy fans. That’s not to say Love is laugh out loud funny because the humor lies more in the subtle and often realistically awkward encounters between these average young 30-something singles. Gillian Jacobs (Community) and Paul Rust star as the unconventional couple at the center of it all. They start out in different failed relationships and their personalities remain

One of the defining elements of Netflix’s new dramedy/romantic comedy series Love, which debuted on the streaming service February 19, is the music. Not only that played by star and co-creator Paul Rust’s character in the show, but the original score written by Lyle Workman. In this exclusive behind the scenes featurette, Workman talks about how he approached that soundtrack, from the instruments he used to the way he tried to evoke the city of Los Angeles where Love is… »
