Sterling K. Brown and Brian Tyree Henry: Breakthrough Stars’ Friendship Began Over a Pair of Beard Clippers

16 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ten years ago, Sterling K. Brown and Brian Tyree Henry met while working on the Tarell Alvin McCraney play “Wig Out” at the Sundance Theater Lab.

Both actors were playing drag queens, and one day, Henry – who was sporting a thick beard at the time – asked Brown to help shave his face.

“He did it,” Henry recalled. “He went and got clippers, and we’ve been best friends ever since. Once you shave a guy’s face, man, you’re best friends after that.”

Cut to 2016, and after years paying dues on stage and in small roles, Brown and Henry both coincidentally had the breakthrough year of their careers.

Brown, of course, won an Emmy portraying Christopher Darden on FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” and now stars in the fall’s new hit NBC series “This Is Us.” (He also just landed a role in “Marvel’s Black Panther. »

'Fargo' Season 3 to Embrace the Modern Era, Focus on Fewer Characters

12 January 2017 4:07 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The end of Fargo's rather long hiatus is in sight.

More than a year after the FX anthology wrapped its second installment, production finally picked back up on the frigid Calgary, Alberta, shoot at the top of the year. Its new cast did not much have time to settle, however. The actors and executive producer Warren Littlefield met with reporters Thursday afternoon at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena to tease out what information they could about the critically adored drama and its often twisted wit.

"I am doing the Fargo-y accent," said star Ewan McGregor of the »

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Will ‘Lean Into the Pain’ of Aging Actresses in Hollywood

12 January 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” may focus on two of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars, but it also highlights the struggle that actresses have trying to find work as they age into an industry that favors the young.

At the Television Critics Association panel for the series on Thursday, creator Ryan Murphy acknowledged that despite the campier aspects of the feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and their collaboration on “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,”  the series would also focus on the more emotional aspects of the women’s lives.

‘The Americans’ Creator on U.S.-Russia Relations, Why We Won’t See Putin

12 January 2017 12:54 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Americans” won’t come to a close until 2018. That ending is very much on the minds of showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, yet the specter of worsening U.S.-Russia relations looms large as well. “To see [relations] spiral so out of control doesn’t feel good,” series creator Weisberg told reporters at the show’s TCA press tour panel on Thursday morning.

Although events in years past have lent a certain sense of timeliness to the FX series about a pair of undercover Kgb spies, the show has taken on an unexpected topicality of late, with the U.S. intelligence community publishing reports that declared Russian agents attempted to influence the U.S. election and, most recently, salacious Russian-sourced intel on President-elect Donald Trump.

Weisberg, an ex-cia officer, said to reporters after the show’s TCA panel that he isn’t quite giving in to the current atmosphere of doom-and-gloom where Russia is concerned. “I »

Gay and Lesbian Critics Association Honor ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Jackie’ with Dorian Award Noms

12 January 2017 12:29 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the second year in a row, the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (Galeca) have rallied around an obvious favorite: “Moonlight.” Last year, Todd Haynes’s “Carol” swept Galeca’s Dorian Awards, and from its prominence amongst the nominees announced today, “Moonlight” will likely do the same.

Not restricted to films with explicit queer themes, the films nominated for film of the year are “Jackie,” “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land, “20th Century Women,” and “Moonlight.” The nominees for Lgbtq Film of the Year are “Being 17,” “Closet Monster,” “Moonlight,” “Other People,” and “The Handmaiden.”

Judging by its very strong Oscar chances, the enthusiasm for “Moonlight” has overshadowed all other worthy queer films. “The Handmaiden” was notably absent from the Oscar short list for Best Foreign Language Film, and the other three Dorian nominees are not in contention at all. »

11 January 2017 9:08 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kirsten Dunst may be headed down the aisle in 2017.

The actress stepped out at the Palm Springs Film Festival on Jan. 2, sporting a diamond ring on that finger, amid reports that she’s engaged to boyfriend and Fargo costar Jesse Plemons.

The ring looks to be an oval-shaped diamond enclosed by tapered baguettes and set on a gold band. Its vintage vibe complements the Old Hollywood glamour Dunst is known for on the red carpet.

8 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Spoilers follow for Season 4, Episode 2, “The Lying Detective.”]

After last week’s damp squib, “Sherlock” is back on form in a genuinely terrifying episode with a shocking conclusion.

The villain of the week is Toby Jones as Culverton Smith, a wealthy and influential public figure beloved by the nation who may or may not have a secret life as a serial killer. While John is back in therapy, Sherlock is back on drugs and publicly accusing Smith of crimes he can’t prove, on account of being…well…off his tits for nearly the entire episode. It’s not until the very end that we know for sure that the great detective is right– Oh, and did we mention that Sherlock has a sister?
