‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 4 Guest Stars: A Visual Guide to Who Played Who in Hollywoo

10 September 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: The below contains major casting and minor plot spoilers for all of “BoJack Horseman” Season 4.]

The general rule with the “Hollywoo” satire “BoJack Horseman” is that you can assume any famous person mentioned by name is probably playing themselves. But beyond that, the show has a knack for lining up a fearsomely talented guest voice cast beyond its already stunning ensemble to play some of its most compelling roles, and Season 4 brought in an impressive array of new and semi-returning faces.

We’ve assembled the below guide to this year’s new characters, for that moment when you say to yourself “Wait, was that…?”

Peter Kraus Wasn’t ‘100 Percent Ready’ to Be Bachelor, Says ABC Exec, but He ‘Might Be a Year from Now’

7 September 2017 8:06 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Peter Kraus won’t be finding his forever love on the upcoming season of The Bachelor, but there’s a possibility he could in the future.

On Thursday, Bachelor Nation was shocked to learn that Kraus — the runner-up on Rachel Lindsay‘s season 13 of The Bachelorette — wouldn’t be the franchise’s new leading man and that fellow Bachelorette alum Arie Luyendyk Jr. was selected instead.

But before Luyendyk Jr. was officially chosen, 31-year-old Kraus was one of the contenders that were in the running for the coveted position of Bachelor.

“Peter was absolutely in discussion. He sort of alluded to that as well. »

7 September 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Instead, Arie Luyendyk Jr. has been named The Bachelor‘s next leading man — and the night before the televised reveal, Kraus tweeted, “Never let fear hold you back. Lesson learned.”

Many on social media are disappointed that the Wisconsin native won’t look for love again on TV. But a source close to production previously told People that fan favorite Kraus was “never” the network’s first choice given that he wasn’t comfortable with the premise that lies at the very core of the ABC reality show: that it »

18 August 2017 8:27 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madison Avenue is betting an old warhorse can gain new traction on the TV schedule.

A Variety survey of commercial-ratings projections for the 2017-2018 broadcast TV season finds ad buyers believe the retooled version of “American Idol,”  slated to air on ABC early next year, will generate the most commercial viewership of any freshman scripted program.

Trailer for “Molly’s Game” puts Jessica Chastain front and center

15 August 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After a short tease posted by none other than star Jessica Chastain herself on Twitter yesterday, we now have the Trailer for Molly’s Game. This drama marks the directorial debut of screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. The pairing of these two seemed like it would create real sparks, and judging by this Trailer, that is certainly the case. You’ll be able to check it out at the bottom of this piece (you must know the drill by now), but before that, we need to discuss the film a bit. This could be a real big Oscar player when all is said and done in 2017… The movie is an adaptation of Molly Bloom’s memoir. It’s described thusly: “The true story of an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target. Her players included movie stars, business titans and unbeknownst to her, »

The Performer | Carrie Preston

The Show | Claws

The Episode | “Bats–t” (July 9, 2017)

The Performance | Picking a favorite member of Claws‘ terrific ensemble of actresses is like picking a favorite shade of nail polish. (They’re all so good!) But this week, it was Preston’s turn to shine and sparkle, as Polly dropped the sweet-as-sugar act and got downright scary on us.

Normally, Polly’s all smiles and sunshine, but that ankle monitor of hers reminds us she’s not as squeaky-clean as she seems. Preston happily delved into Polly’s dark side as the ex-con ambushed Virginia in her home, »

Why Swimfan Is the Most Underrated Thriller of the 2000s

28 May 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fifteen years ago, Swimfan came to the big screen. Made for $10 million, Swimfan grossed $34 million worldwide. This tale of a swimmer (Jesse Bradford) who engages the wrong girl (Erika Christensen) in a one night stand, was essentially Fatal Attraction for the teen set. And, as hyperbolic as this may sound, it was also the best film of 2002. Even if it doesn't make IMDb's most underrated list for the Aughts.

Okay, so it came nowhere near an Academy Award nomination. Hell, it didn't even pick up an MTV Movie Awards nod. Does anybody believe that the best picture winner for any given year is really The best picture? If we ignore that idea altogether, then it is plausible Swimfan was indeed the best overall film released all throughout 2002. It may not have done the biggest box office, barely anyone remembers it now, but what it did in a cerebral sense, and with its visceral imagery, »

‘The Bachelorette’ Season 13 Cast Revealed: Meet the Men Vying for Rachel Lindsay’s Heart

17 May 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For those who watched any part of “The Bachelor” Season 21, one thing is evident about this season’s “Bachelorette,” Rachel Lindsay: She is probably too good for anyone willing to be a contestant on “The Bachelorette.”

That said, ABC announced the lineup of contenders on Wednesday via Periscope — a franchise first and, as host Chris Harrison joked, perhaps a last.

Speaking of franchise firsts, Lindsay, a 31-year-old lawyer from Texas, made history when, after 33 seasons combined of the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette,” she became the first African-American to carry the title. “I’m honored to have this opportunity and to represent myself as an African-American woman. And I just hope that people rally behind me like they did in Nick’s season,” Lindsay commented after it was announced that she would lead Season 13.

In a surprising move by the network, Lindsay was announced as the next “Bachelorette” weeks before she was eliminated on Nick Viall’s season »

The Pros and Cons of Looking Back: Close-Up on John Carpenter’s "Christine" and "Starman"

14 May 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. John Carpenter's Christine (1983) is showing May 4 - June 3 and Starman (1984) is showing May 5 - June 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom.ChristineWas it too dark? Too bleak? Too gory? Did it have the misfortune of opening when American moviegoers were flocking to E.T.? Either way, when John Carpenter's The Thing landed in the summer of 1982, with an apocalyptic cliffhanger and the most surreally grotesque, tactile, gooey monster effects you never realized could be put on film, it fizzled. "It was hated," Carpenter later recalled at a screening in Los Angeles. "Hated by fans. I lost a job. People hated me. They thought I was this horrible, violent—" He trailed off and joked, "And I was." The audience laughed, because by now The Thing's exalted place in movie geek culture is secure: an exquisitely paranoid horror classic and arguably the crown »

Tour Bachelor Twins Haley and Emily Ferguson’s New Los Angeles Home, Which Includes a Giant Photo of Ben Higgins

Emily and Haley Ferguson are growing up — and moving out!

The 24-year-old twins, who found fame on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, recently relocated from Las Vegas to a new pad in Los Angeles.  But they’re not exactly prepared for the realities of grown-up living. “We’re trying to be adults,” Haley says. And they readily admit, “Our mom used to do all of our laundry and cooking.”

To help ease the transition, they called in former flame Higgins and his girlfriend Lauren Bushnell, who he proposed to on his season of the hit show, for reinforcements.

Why 'Slap Shot' Captures the 1970s Better Than Any Other Sports Movie

24 February 2017 6:37 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Over the last few decades – thanks in part to movies and TV shows like Dazed and Confused, Boogie Nights, Anchorman and HBO's Vinyl – there’s been a pronounced pop cultural tendency to reduce the 1970s to little more than a fabulous parade of campy signifiers like mirrored disco balls, brightly-painted muscle cars, platform shoes, bellbottomed jeans, tube tops, Afro hairdos, pornstaches and piles of cocaine.

It's an understandable impulse, of course. (Who doesn't love Afros or piles of cocaine?) But taking such a superficial approach to the seventies means glossing over the grittier, »

Film Review: ‘The Bye Bye Man’

12 January 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Horror films used to play by the rules. These days, though, especially when they involve haunted houses, they often have a visually promiscuous, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink quality that toys with the audience in ways that don’t always fit together. (The audience’s attitude toward this smorgasbord-of-fear factor tends to be a shrug of “Whatever works.”) “The Bye Bye Man” falls somewhere in between those two poles. The movie lays down its rules and follows them, and then breaks them. Yet even when it seems to be making things up as it goes along, its slapdash hallucinatory quality is a token gesture toward placing you inside the characters’ heads.

In a rural area just outside Madison, three students at the University of Wisconsin — tall sexy geek Elliot (Douglas Smith), his come-hither girlfriend Sasha (Cressida Bonas), and his smooth jock Bff John (Lucien Laviscount) — arrange to room together off-campus in a rundown old »
