Kate (Stana Katic) finds herself struggling to solve the toughest case of »
You know how it is. You get married young, to your college love, have a bunch of kids, beautiful kids. And you live in a beautiful New York brownstone. Ok, so your wealthy father-in-law helped with the house and you’d rather not be so reliant on him (he’s an asshole, to be honest). But you’re just a teacher and – recently – a novelist, which is what you want to do. You’re still young and you look pretty good, you’re not yet invisible to women, which is nice – but that’s all it is, because you’re married to the love of your life. Hey, you even have sex, with each other, once in a while, if the kids allow it. Life’s good. »

Nicole Kidman is in "advanced talks" to re-team with Rabbit Hole director John Cameron Mitchell for his punks and aliens sci-fi romance, How to Talk to Girls at Parties. Ruth Wilson (Luther) and Matt Lucas (Bridesmaids) are also in talks to join previously announced lead Elle Fanning (Maleficent).

Though she’ll be venturing to the small screen for HBO’s adaptation of Big Little Lies, Oscar winner Nicole Kidman is simultaneously lining up some very promising gigs in Hollywood. Today brings word that she’ll reteam with Rabbit Hole director John Cameron Mitchell for How to Talk to Girls at Parties, an adaptation of the Neil Gaiman short story.
Elle Fanning was already set to lead a cast that now also includes The Affair‘s Ruth Wilson and Matt Lucas (Alice in Wonderland). The strange-sounding project (I mean, this is Gaiman we’re talking about) will follow an alien tourist (Fanning) who breaks away from her tour group to explore the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon, and a punk schoolboy who uses music and art as a way to escape the doldrums of his daily existence.

It has been five years since John Cameron Mitchell's powerful "Rabbit Hole," which marked the breakout performance of Miles Teller, and certified that the man best known for "Hedwig And The Angry Inch" had a lot more to say from behind the camera. And it looks like Nicole Kidman is eager to work with her "Rabbit Hole" director once again. She has joined Elle Fanning, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas in Mitchell's "How To Talk To Girls At Parties." The adaptation of the short story by Neil Gaiman follows an alien who finds herself visiting the most unlikely of places: the London suburb of Croydon. The movie is described as a "punks and aliens" movie and will also feature a strong musical element as well, with some big names apparently being courted for the soundtrack, to which the cast will contribute as well.

Based on a short story by Neil Gaiman (“Coraline”) from his collection “Fragile Things,” the screenplay has been written by Philippa Goslett (“Little Ashes”) with John Cameron Mitchell. The film is in the spirit of “Romeo and Juliet,” but instead of Montagues and Capulets, it is punks and aliens. This is the story of the birth of punk, the exuberance of first love, and the universe’s greatest mystery of all: how to talk to girls at parties.

What billionaires eat in The World’s Most Expensive Food, Caribbean soldiers at war in Fighting For King And Empire and a football tragedy recalled in Missed Warnings: The Bradford City Fire. Plus: Ruth Wilson and Dominic West beguile in The Affair and Rory Bremner surveys the wreckage in Election Report
It sounds mouthwatering, but you’re more likely to be grinding your teeth after watching the first instalment of this two-part documentary on the high-end suppliers who provide foods to London’s expanding superclass of pampered billionaires. From £24,000 tins of caviar to exorbitantly priced champagne, the displays of consumption leave a bad taste in the mouth, especially if the challenges of creating Michelin-quality meals in the cramped confines of a private jet leave you unmoved.

"What appealed to me about the character was basically that I got to play two characters," says Maura Tierney about her role in Showtime's drama "The Affair." (Watch our complete interview below.) She plays Helen Solloway, whose husband Noah (Dominic West) begins an extramarital relationship with Alison (Ruth Wilson), a grieving waitress in Montauk. The story alternates between Noah and Alison's points of view, showing us how differently they see each other, their relationship, and their respective spouses. -Break- Joshua Jackson dishes different perspectives of 'The Affair' [Exclusive Video] "For all we know, none of it happened like that. Everybody's memory is so subjective," says Tierney of how difficult it is to suss out the truth of any story. "I know that I've been, for example, at an event or at a party with someone, and we are experiencing the exact same event … [but] we bo..." »

Broadway has always boasted its share of stars, but this year, they seem even brighter than ever.
The nominations for the 2015 Tony Awards were revealed today, and among the luminaries receiving recognition are Bradley Cooper, Helen Mirren, Elisabeth Moss, Carey Mulligan, Ken Watanabe, and Ruth Wilson.
"An American in Paris" and "Fun Home" were the top nominated musicals, with a dozen nods each, while the two-part "Wolf Hall" was the most honored play.
One particularly notable omission was the exclusion of "Finding Neverland" from the best musical category. The high-profile show was produced by Harvey Weinstein, but some insiders have speculated that his infamously abrasive ways turned off Broadway vets.
The race to watch will be best actress in a play, which feature's a murderer's row of powerhouse performers: Geneva Carr ("Hand to God"), Helen Mirren ("The Audience"), Elisabeth Moss ("The Heidi Chronicles"), Carey Mulligan ("Skylight"), and Ruth Wilson ("Constellations »
