18 hours ago

Jackie Weaver stars in Woody Allen’s latest feature Magic in the Moonlight in which she plays a wealthy older widow with a fondness for the supernatural.

Living alone in the South of France, Grace becomes consumed by thoughts of the afterlife and the mystical prophecies provided by a seer. Weaver understands the character as someone with so little that she clings to the supernatural to give meaning to her lonesome existence.

“She’s very needy. Mourning her husband, she’s lonely and she's grasping at any opportunity for comfort,” Weaver explained exclusively to uInterview. “And combined with that, she's quite a naive, gullible, innocent. So she's ripe for that sort of swindling — for that sort of trickery. And they’re the sorts of people that get preyed on by people who take lots of money to predict things.”

To play Grace, Weaver said she was able to imagine her mindset by channeling older, »

Halle Berry's 'Extant' Bumped To Later Timeslot After Modest Ratings

28 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT

CBS is moving Extant, which stars Oscar-winner Halle Berry, from the 9 to 10 p.m. timeslot on Wednesday evenings.

Extant Gets New Timeslot

Just three weeks into its freshman season, Extant’s ratings are causing some concern for CBS. The network believes that the show might have a better chance picking up viewers at 10 p.m. following a Criminal Minds rerun, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Extant has been trying to feed off a lead-in from Big Brother, however the series is only getting about half of Big Brother’s rating.

Extant’s premiere had 9.6 million total viewers and a 1.6 rating with adults aged 18-49. It’s third episode, however, had only 6.5 million viewers in the key demographic and a rating of 1.1.

There’s still hope for Extant to succeed in viewership, as the show also appears on Amazon Prime four days after it airs on CBS. Though the exact numbers aren’t publically available yet, »
