Michael Moore Disses Trump, Hillary Clinton in New Broadway Show

8 hours ago

Michael Moore has Trump on the brain, and the Oscar-winning documentarian and liberal scourge unleashed his animus on the new president on Friday in the first public performance of his one-man Broadway debut, “The Terms of My Surrender.” “I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is the president — and I’m not leaving,” Moore said near the end of his two-hour plus show, which was part autobiography, part counseling session to like-minded urban liberals and part political rally and call to action. At one point, Moore teased a run for president in 2020, with a typically satirical edge. »

‘Outlander’ EPs Weigh in on When Starz Drama Might End, Keeping Pace With Novels

11 hours ago

Starz’s hit drama series “Outlander” has hewed pretty closely to Diana Gabaldon’s ongoing series of novels, leaving the show no obvious path forward beyond the eighth book, but showrunner Ronald D. Moore says there are no plans to stray from the source material yet. Famously, HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” itself based on a popular book series, outpaced its author George R. R. Martin, leaving showrunner David Benioff and D.B. Weiss no choice but to forge their own storylines. But Moore says his show doesn’t face the same problem. “I cannot imagine a scenario where we catch up with Diana Gabaldon, »

13 hours ago

When a loved one dies accidentally, you develop tunnel vision. Your mind teems with questions: Was it quick? What were his final thoughts? What if his plans had been different that day?

In “Strange Weather,” writer-director Katherine Dieckmann (“Diggers”) explores how people who kill themselves inevitably claim more than one life. It’s a hot and bone-dry September in Georgia when we meet Darcy (Holly Hunter, scrappy as ever), an administrative assistant who would rather spend her. »

Reminder: La Times Called Scaramucci ‘Smooth and Noncombative’ Before His Meltdown

13 hours ago

The Los Angeles Times is the victim of bad timing: Four days before Anthony Scaramucci’s profanity-filled New Yorker interview, in which he accused Steve Bannon of trying to “suck his own c—,” the paper ran a headline calling him “polished, smooth and noncombative.” The story, written largely in response to Scaramucci’s no-drama Sunday talk show appearances, described him as “resolutely genial”: During appearances on three major news talk shows, Scaramucci artfully pivoted away from troublesome topics — with a burst of candor, by changing the subject, by evoking the blue-collar roots he shares with many in Trump’s base, »

Scaramucci, who has openly feuded with Preibus and accused him of leaking information from the White House, told New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza on Wednesday: “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll. »
