The Nightcrawler star will play the nerdy, lovestruck florist Seymour in this summer’s three-performance concert revival of Little Shop Of Horrors, the musical adaption of the 1960 Roger Corman sorta-horror flick that put composer Alan Menken and the late lyricist Howard Ashman on the map.

Jake Gyllenhaal Is Suddenly Seymour With His Musical-Theater Debut in Little Shop of Horrors

14 April 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jake Gyllenhaal is getting more comfortable with the stage. After starring opposite Ruth Wilson in Constellations on Broadway, he'll be making his musical-theater debut as nerdy florist Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors, a kooky play reminiscent of old Gyllenhaal's early sensibility. But then again, this might all be part of Gyllenhaal's master plan to play Effie White in Dreamgirls. The play begins its run at the City Center in New York in the summer. »

Hey 'Luther' Fans, Idris Elba Has a Video Message for You...

8 April 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

An American "Luther" could make it to your TV screens next TV season, if Fox can find an actor for the lead role (read all about that here). But fans shouldn't fret, because Elba is returning for another season (a 4th) of the original UK series, which will eventually air in the USA on BBC America, as it's done in the past, likely by this fall. This time however, the season will comprise of just a 2-part special. Show creator Cross said: "Ever since we said goodbye to John Luther on Southwark Bridge, there's hardly been a minute when I didn't wonder what happened next. So I decided to find out. We're putting the band back together; Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work." The 2-part event special will pick up the story from the thrilling conclusion to the last (third) season. »

Watch: Michelle Williams Is Rattled By War In 2 Clips From 'Suite Francaise'

20 March 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The power of love is the only indestructible thing in the world. Hate is not going to get you anywhere, violence is not going to get you anywhere, cynicism is not going to get you anywhere, love will get you there. Love makes life worth living and that is it. Period," Matthias Schoenaerts told Rte Ten. This is a sentiment that powers the upcoming "Suite Francaise," and today a couple of clips from the wartime drama have landed.  Co-starring Michelle WilliamsKristin Scott Thomas, Margot RobbieRuth Wilson ("The Affair"), and Sam Riley, and based on the novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the story is set during World War II, in the early years of Germany’s occupation of France, and follows a French villager who falls for a Nazi soldier stationed to look over her township. But horrors of war aren't hidden, and these clips (one via The Telegraph) show »

Dominic West and Ruth Wilson's The Affair to air on Sky Atlantic

20 March 2015 3:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Affair will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland.

The Golden Globe-winning Showtime drama starring Dominic West and Ruth Wilson will premiere in May.

Sky has also picked up the rights for its upcoming second season.

The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair between Noah Solloway (West) and Alison Bailey (Wilson).

The story is told separately from both Noah and Alison's perspectives, using their distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue.

Sky Atlantic director Zai Bennett said: "I'm delighted we have secured The Affair for Sky Atlantic.

"Its intricate storytelling and phenomenal acting sit perfectly on the channel, further cementing our channel's position as the home of quality drama in the UK."

The Affair also stars Maura Tierney, Joshua Jackson and Julia Goldani Telles. Watch a trailer below: »

News Nuggets: Ready for a super competitive Emmy race for Best Drama Actress?

18 March 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Will this year's Emmy Awards race for Best Drama Actress be "super competitive" and one of the hardest to predict in recent memory? Two newcomers are predicted to be nominee locks: Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder") and Taraji P. Henson ("Empire"). Two recent champs that should be safe are Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") and Claire Danes ("Homeland"). After those names, there is an intense battle for the final two spots. Last year's nominees Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey"), Kerry Washington ("Scandal"), and Robin Wright ("House of Cards") could be back. Ruth Wilson ("The Affair") just won the Golden Globe. And there are at least a dozen more ladies with legitimate chances. Film Experience -Break- For the first time in almost 30 years, a Steven Spielberg film will not have John Williams composing its score. "Bridge ..." »

Movie Review – Suite Française (2015)

15 March 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suite Française, 2015.

Directed by Saul Dibb.

Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Margot Robbie, Sam Riley and Ruth Wilson.

Synopsis:

During the early years of German occupation of France in World War II, romance blooms between Lucile Angellier, a French villager and Bruno von Falk, a German soldier.

We’ve seen romantic movies, we’ve seen war movies, and we’ve seen romantic movies set during a war so from the off Suite Française faces the unenviable task of setting itself aside from the rest. Thankfully director Saul Dibb’s keeps his film aimed squarely at the relationships between and evenly balances both love and war to ensure the film never runs flats or becomes to cliché ridden – something it could very easily have been.

France has become occupied by the Nazis and when a troop of German soldiers move in to the small town of Bussy a »

Suite Francaise review: Michelle Williams stars in a rote war romance

13 March 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Saul Dibb; Screenwriter: Matt Charman, Saul Dibb; Starring: Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ruth Wilson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Riley; Running time: 107 mins; Certificate: 15

Based on an unfinished novel by Irène Némirovsky, who wrote it shortly prior to her death in Auschwitz, Suite Française transforms an extraordinary story into a profoundly ordinary period drama. Tasking its potent performers with a stiff script and by-rote characterisations, the film feels endlessly in search of a dramatic thread worth paying off.

Lucile (Michelle Williams) is a lonely young woman living with her repressive and chilly mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) in the French village of Bussy during World War II. We learn through heavy-handed voiceover that her husband is away fighting, leaving her scarcely more emotionally neglected than she was in his company. When the village is occupied by German forces, Lucile is drawn to a sensitive Nazi soldier (Matthias Schoenaerts) who comes to stay in her too-empty home. »

Film Review: ‘Suite francaise’

10 March 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The title is the most authentically French thing about “Suite francaise,” a fusty but enjoyably old-fashioned WWII soap that, notwithstanding its Gallic locale, is otherwise characterized by a distinctly British brand of plumminess. Based on the bestselling unfinished novel by Irene Nemirovsky, this lightly perfumed tale of the tentative romance between a married Frenchwoman and an urbane Nazi soldier during the 1940 German occupation covers no new ground historically or stylistically, and is hampered by gauche narration that undermines the expressive delicacy of Michelle Williams’s headlining performance. Still, attractive mounting and casting — with the inspired choice of Matthias Schoenaerts as Williams’s co-lead paying off handsomely — could see this Weinstein Co. property make moderately “Suite” music in limited release.

In Blighty, where Entertainment One releases the pic on March 13, “Suite francaise” is likely to entice the older audience that failed to turn out for the comparable but superior wartime weepie »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a Drama Series

10 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Unlike their male counterparts, all the actresses nominated in 2014 for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series are eligible again this year. That means someone is going to have to upset last year's winner Julianna Margulies as well as nominees Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey"), Claire Danes ("Homeland"), Kerry Washington ("Scandal") or Robin Wright ("House of Cards") just to get into the race.  Who's got the best shot? Viola Davis, who many thought was a lock to win the Golden Globe, is a hot contender for freshman sensation "How to Get Away With Murder." Don't discount Ruth Wilson, though, who beat Davis for the trophy at the Globes for her role on "The Affair." Taraji P. Henson is also high on a lot of lists thanks to her show stopping role in "Empire," and no one should discount Elisabeth Moss for her final year of "Mad Men. »

Ruth Wilson believes The Affair too raunchy for UK

9 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Ruth Wilson believes 'The Affair' is too raunchy for British TV. The actress won a Golden Globe award for her performance as Alison Bailey in the first series of the drama, and although it has proved to be a hit on Showtime in the Us, she suspects the many sexual scenes may be holding it back from audiences in the UK. When asked why it hasn't been picked up by a British channel, she said: ''I've no idea. Maybe sexual content? I don't know, it's not that bad.'' However, the 33-year-old Brit - who stars opposite Dominic West in the programme - is »

Ruth Wilson: ‘People know me as my characters. They don’t know me’

8 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Following her Golden Globe-winning turn in Us drama The Affair, and her portrayal of a tough farmer’s wife in the forthcoming film Suite Française, Ruth Wilson’s forte for playing strong, complex women is helping her handle fame

Ruth Wilson, the 33-year-old British actress, has made a pretty well unimprovable start to 2015. In January, she won a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for her role in The Affair. The competition was daunting – Homeland’s Claire Danes and Viola Davis among them – but Wilson came through for her harrowing depiction of Alison, a waitress dealing with the death of her son who begins a liaison with an older writer played by Dominic West. Then, a couple of days after the awards, she made her Broadway debut in New York in Constellations, a two-hander opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. The reviews couldn’t have been more glowing if she’d written them herself. »

Game Of Thrones' Rose Leslie Joins Luther

4 March 2015 1:15 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A new two-part Luther special is underway, no doubt boasting all the growly detective work we’ve come to expect and love from everyone’s favourite bellowing London copper. What it won’t have, according to The Wrap’s scoop, is Ruth Wilson’s whipsmart sociopath to provide a menacing yin to the big man’s righteous yang. Instead, Game Of Thrones’ flinty Ygritte, Rose Leslie, has signed on for the show’s return, alongside The Inbetweeners Movie’s Laura Haddock.Leslie will play a new character called Emma Jones, although whether she’ll be filling the psycho gap remains to be. Wilson’s Alice Morgan was one of the best things in Luther’s previous three seasons, simultaneously sinister and alluring and occasionally even outmatching the careworn copper with a cool intellect that was always calculating, always running the numbers. Like an old-fashioned femme fatale or a flirtier Moriarty, »

3 March 2015 9:53 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filming has begun on two one-hour long special episodes of the BBC's "Luther" with Idris Elba returning to the iconic role of the disgruntled Dci John Luther. Elba posted a photo of himself shooting scenes for this fourth batch of episodes in east London this week, whilst the BBC has also released an official image from the set.

Cast regulars Michael Smiley and Dermot Crowley are back, with guest stars for the specials including "Game of Thrones" duo Rose Leslie and Patrick Malahide, Laura Haddock ("Guardians of the Galaxy") and John Heffernan ("Ripper Street"). No confirmation has been made of Ruth Wilson reprising her acclaimed role of Alice Morgan in the specials.

The new episodes will apparently see a Luther hell-bent on retribution as he faces his most chilling adversary yet. It's scheduled for broadcast this Fall.
