Exclusive: It’s tempting to say that Alessandro Nivola lives a charmed life, and that might be true if he weren’t working so hard. He’s Zelig in plain sight: At this moment in time you can see him in Selma as Justice Department civil rights lawyer John Doar, who would become the lead prosecutor in the government’s case against the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And you can see him on the other side of the mirror, as a mobbed-up oil distributor and bete noir of Oscar Isaacs in A Most Violent Year. He played another nemesis, FBI agent Anthony Amado, on the trail of Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. And he’s still batting it around with Cooper, but now on Broadway, where he plays Frederick Treves, the humanistic doctor who rescues Cooper’s John Merrick – Aka the Elephant Man – from life in a freak show booth. »

Ruth Wilson doesn't do gratuitous sex scenes - not even in the steamy new drama The Affair, for which she just won a Golden Globe. "These scenes need to be real and they need to have a narrative as much as any other scene," she told Net-a-Porter's magazine. "They can't be purely titillation. They need to move the story forward and the characters forward." The British actress, who just celebrated her 33rd birthday, also spoke frankly about how women are viewed in the entertainment industry: "It's assumed that women will get their breasts out, and have to get their breasts out, »

With penises generally a no-go, how can we make TV nudity a more gender-equal affair? The Affair's Ruth Wilson has an idea: Force male actors to do embarrassing sex-face shots, too. Wilson tells The Edit that, during her sex scenes with Dominic West, she "kept insisting, 'Why have I always got to do the orgasm face? There should be a male orgasm face.'" And, in general: "'Why is it always the woman who’s orgasming? Let’s analyze the male orgasm.’" Somebody needs to show Ruth Wilson Outlander, immediately. »

The actor was thought to be in line to replace Tom Hardy in the film, following the British actor's recent exit.
However, sources have told Variety that Gyllenhaal has turned down an offer to play supervillain Rick Flag, alongside Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
Producers need to find an actor to replace Hardy before April, when the film enters production.
Despite citing scheduling conflicts as the reason for his exit, it has been reported that Hardy left the project due to problems with the script.
Suicide Squad follows supervillains who are organised by the Us government to work together as a black ops team in exchange for redemption.

Ruth Wilson just won a Golden Globe for her spot-on portrayal of a grieving, unfaithful spouse with a secret in The Affair. A role that also involves a fair amount of nudity and graphic-for-cable-tv sex. But the British beauty, who previously was best known for playing a stone-cold psycho with a soft spot for Idris Elba in Luther and is now starring on Broadway in Constellations, doesn't sound like one to do something just because the script calls for it. "I argue this stuff all the time; that these scenes need to be real and they need to have narrative as much as any other scene," Wilson says in the latest issue of Net-a-Porter's The Edit. "They can't be purely »
Ruth Wilson didn't get to go to her first Golden Globes. A nominee in 2008 for Jane Eyre, the actress was foiled by the writers' strike, which reduced the ceremony to a news conference that she watched from a hotel bar. Seven years later, she returned for the ceremony—and won. "It was nice enough just to be there this time," Wilson says the morning after she bested Viola Davis, Claire Danes, Robin Wright, and Julianna Margulies to win Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role on Showtime's The Affair. "I was up against those incredible actresses; I didn't expect to win at all. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Jennifer Lopez was on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and a couple of interesting things happened. For one, she and Jimmy Fallon played "Catchphrase" opposite actor Anthony Mackie and comedian Steve Higgins. They were all pretty amazing, and ultra competitive, although there were a few uncalled cheating incidents for the winning side. Just saying. (JLo, you were robbed.) That's a key discussion in the comments, if you click on the video - that and the distraction powers of JLo's own bottom line. The fans noticed. But still, it was a great game to watch and it's not like anyone deflated a football or anything. (Too soon?) "That was »

Jake Gyllenhaal may not have received an Oscar nomination for “Nightcrawler” on Thursday but he could still end the day with a win, as David Ayer is courting his “End of Watch” star to replace Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg in “Suicide Squad,” multiple individuals familiar with the comic book project have told TheWrap.
Warner Bros. had no comment, while a representative for Gyllenhaal didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Would you like to see a two-hander in which Jake Gyllenhaal plays a hunky but bashful British beekeeper, hemming and half-smiling, while Ruth Wilson, so recently embaubled with a Golden Globe for The Affair, plays a charmingly ditzy astrophysicist? Would you like to watch the pair meet cute at a barbecue, grope their way toward romance, survive infidelity, and face tragedy together? I would; it sounds like an engaging play. Unfortunately it’s not the one now running at the Manhattan Theatre Club under the title Constellations, even though all those things do happen in it. But since Nick Payne, the author, is unwilling to give us that romantic trifle, this delightful, beautifully acted, and infuriating new drama is so much more, and less.The more and the less both stem from the gimmick with which Payne attempts to lift the material to an intellectual plane.

In the cascade of perfect smiles, smh laughter at outre jokes, and general 'oh god the camera is on me now and I don't have a script' that is awards show reaction shows you may have missed the Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal had pride of place at Sunday's Golden Globe ceremony, and received the very first reaction shot as Tina & Amy entered to host, their joke quote, "the 72nd and final Golden Globe Awards". The very first reaction shot. Even Oprah had to settle for second billing.
It was a good night for the Gyllenhaals. They started the festivities with family nostalgia listening to "Graceland" in the limo (as they said on the red carpet), Maggie won for Best Actress in a Television Movie or Miniseries for The Honourable Woman, Jake was a very proud sibling and a nominee, and Jake's current Broadway co-star Ruth Wilson ("Constellations") was also »

The shade! Kristin Chenoweth took to Twitter on Sunday to subtly diss her ex-boyfriend Dana Brunetti after he lost at the 2015 Golden Globes. After The Affair won for Best Drama Series during the awards show, beating out Brunetti's show House of Cards, Chenoweth tweeted, "So happy The Affair won tonight. #deserving love Ruth Wilson xo." Lol! And Chenoweth's shady tweet didn't go unnoticed by Brunetti. The 41-year-old producer responded on Monday by retweeting the 46-year-old singer's message and added, "Ha." Guess Brunetti has a sense of humor when it comes to his ex. Meanwhile, Brunetti attended the Golden Globes with his new girlfriend Katie Cassidy. It »

Why do so many top Us TV dramas struggle to find a home in the UK schedules? Here are a few that you’re missing out on
If Kevin Spacey winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama has reignited your enthusiasm for House of Cards, you’re in luck: the entire third season will be available, worldwide, on Netflix from 27 February . But if Ruth Wilson winning best actress piqued your interest in Showtime’s The Affair – which also beat House of Cards to win best TV drama – things get a little more complicated.
Despite starring Brit exports Wilson and Dominic West and being produced by the cable channel behind Homeland, The Affair hasn’t yet been picked up in the UK. That seems odd in an age where it’s possible to watch a simulcast of the first episode of Game of Thrones when it broadcasts »

“It’s been a bad month for free speech around the world,” Showtime topper David Nevins observed during his exec Q&A session Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour.
Nevins noted that there’s never been a more dynamic time for a network to be in the business of producing provocative high-end scripted programming. He acknowledged that recent events — from the politically motivated cyber-attack on Sony Pictures to the Charlie Hedbo slayings in Paris — have been nerve-wracking.
“It’s a scary time to be a maker of controversial, political-boundary breaking shows,” Nevins said.
Showtime veered into the volatile world of global politics with “Homeland’s” fourth season, which was set in Pakistan and depicted the country’s internal struggle in connection with fighting terrorism in its backyard and its relationship with the U.S. The Pakistani embassy in the U.S. put out a formal statement of complaint »
