Julianna Margulies and Jimmy Fallon Sing Parodies As School Faculty for TV Fun

1 hour ago

Last night on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon sat down with Julianna Margulies to have a frank conversation about the stresses of being a TV actress, balancing her artistic desires and professional obligation. Just kidding. They sang some silly parodies in character as a principal and vice-principal of a school. So, if you always wanted to hear a version of "Rude" about sexting, watch below. If you’ve never wanted that, still watch, because you've gotten this far anyway.  »

Tracks Is Powerful, Once It Finds Its Footing

2 hours ago

You often hear spiritually elevated people say, “It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey,” and that philosophy is implicit in Robyn Davidson’s celebrated 1980 memoir, Tracks, and in the meditative, powerful new film directed by John Curran. This is a work in which the very premise is repeatedly called into question: Just why does Davidson (played onscreen by Mia Wasikowska) move from the big city to trek 1,700 miles across the harsh Australian desert (from dusty Alice Springs in the Northern Territories to the Indian Ocean) with only her dog, Diggity, and four demanding camels? Among the answers: to show that she—a woman—can do it on her own. To see the country and its history—particularly its treatment of the natives—in a new light. To get away from people and the niceties of civilization—to stop having to strike poses. That makes it ironic »

Whoa, Nelly: Here Is Danny Stripping on The Mindy Project Season Premiere

9 hours ago

After a long summer hiatus, The Mindy Project finally returned Tuesday night. Thankfully, viewers were rewarded for their months of patience: Danny and Mindy are still a happy couple, and their coupledom involves many wonderful things, such as getting to watch Danny — or, should we say, "Diamond Dan" (!) — perform an epic, hip-swiveling, pelvic-thrusting, let-me-just-fix-my-glasses striptease to the soundtrack of Lenny Kravitz's "American Woman." Monogamy has never looked so good. . »

Adam Driver’s Star Wars: Episode VII Role May Surprise You

10 hours ago

There's plenty that we don't know about J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film, but one of our known knowns — at least, we thought — was that Adam Driver was definitely going be one of the bad guys. But a new on-set photo is making us rethink things. Spoilers ahead:Yesterday, someone on Twitter snapped a photo on the Star Wars set that features Adam Driver wearing what appears to be an X-Wing pilot uniform. Of course, there’s always a chance that Driver could start off good and turn bad, or that X-Wing pilots are bad guys now, or maybe that he’s simply impersonating an X-Wing pilot for some devious means. Sorry, did you want concrete answers about the plot of Star Wars: Episode VII? This is not the post you were looking for. »

Joan Rivers’s Doctor Allegedly Took a Selfie During Her Throat Surgery

10 hours ago

More details are emerging in the death of Joan Rivers, which occurred when the 81-year-old went into cardiac arrest during what was supposed to be a routine throat procedure at the Upper East Side’s Yorkville Endoscopy clinic. According to CNN, the comedian’s personal doctor took a selfie in the operating room while Rivers was under anesthesia and also performed a biopsy on her vocal cords without Rivers's prior consent. Yorkville's medical director Lawrence Cohen, who has since been let go from his post, was the one originally performing the endoscopy on Rivers. It is believed Cohen then stepped aside to let Rivers's personal doctor — who was not authorized to practice at the clinic — perform the unauthorized biopsy that ultimately caused her to go into cardiac arrest. The doctor named in these accusations has yet to be identified. »

Drea de Matteo on Sons of Anarchy, Missing Adriana, and Why She’d Do Joey Again

10 hours ago

Drea de Matteo is a little sad. She’s finally become a regular cast member on Sons of Anarchy as Wendy, Jax’s ex-junkie baby mama, and the show is riding off the air at the end of its current seventh season. “Now that I’m in there, I want to keep going!” de Matteo says. At least she’s getting lots of juicy scenes as she helps Jax (Charlie Hunnam) raise their son, Abel, as well as Thomas, his infant boy with now-dead old lady Tara (Maggie Siff). The Queens, New York, native talked to Vulture about Wendy’s life expectancy, The Sopranos’ still-controversial finale, and why she’s “too much of a whore for network TV!”Wendy busted herself out of rehab after 9 of 90 days. Is it possible she’s cleaned up her act or will this turn out to be a bad decision?Well, I don’t know. »

Sons of Anarchy Recap: Where Does It End?

10 hours ago

The recap sequence for “Toil and Till” begins with footage of Jax telling the Indian Hills chapter how the club is going legit, and ends with him forking an innocent man in the head. This introduction to the final season’s second episode provides a framework for what’s to come: a man whose desire to not be an outlaw has seemingly unraveled into a pile of heroin, guns and misplaced revenge. “Toil and Till” — certainly referring to the labor and cultivation that we’re seeing go into Jax’s and Samcro’s final chapter — starts with Jax waking up in bed, sun streaming in, a lawn mower tending the land outside. He’s momentarily born anew, until he looks at the empty pillow next to him, and the kitchen sink where the head that had lain on that pillow was choked, held under water and repeatedly stabbed. His day is just beginning, »

Despite the Existence of Orange Is the New Black, TV Isn’t More Woman-Friendly

11 hours ago

If the reign of Shonda Rhimes and the success of Orange Is the New Black made you think that TV was on its way to solving its gender imbalance, think again: According to a new study first released by Deadline, women remain badly underrepresented in the TV landscape, and their roles both on- and offscreen have decreased in recent years. According to the annual “Boxed In” report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, women make up only 27 percent of the behind-the-camera workforce in broadcast television, down 1 percent from the previous season. Meanwhile, women make up only 42 percent of onscreen broadcast speaking roles, a 1 percent decline from last season.“For many years, women have experienced slow but incremental growth both as characters on screen and working in key positions behind the scenes. However, that progress, small though it »

The Mindy Project Season 3 Premiere: Mindy + Danny 4-Eva, Please

12 hours ago

As it turns out, some will-they-won’t-they couples are even more fun to watch when they do. And there is no better case in point than Mindy and Danny. Their sexual tension was delicious, but their relationship is even more fun. Score one for monogamy. Some evidence of their entertainment value as a couple: They listen to Boston’s highly underrated “More Than a Feeling” (just as rousing as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” you guys) during sex. They apparently have more than satisfactory cunnilingus, thanks to Danny’s storied skill with his mouth. Not even “hunky drifter” Cousin Lou (the excellent Rob McElhenney of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) could break them up.And though Mindy is trying to change some of her bad habits for Danny — namely, telling the whole office stuff like “he’s good with his mouth” — she is still the Mindy we love. That is, »

Report: Jay Z and Beyonce Are Making an Album Together

12 hours ago

From divorce talk to baby talk, the Mr. and Mrs. Carter rumor mill churns on. Today’s newest bit of hearsay comes courtesy of DJ Skee — via his brand new radio station Dash Radio — who claims multiple sources have confirmed that the pair are working on a joint album that they plan to drop in late 2014 or early 2015. No word on what adjective of “in love” they will be this time. How about “Laughing All The Way To The Bank (In Love)?” Yeah, that sounds right. »

New Girl Season 4 Premiere Recap: Fridge People

12 hours ago

I can’t tell you how badly I wished season four would open with Jess waking up from a terrible nightmare. Happily, she’d realize that she doesn’t have an unstable sister, that Schmidt might be a tool but he would never cheat on two women he cares about (nor would he move out only to lose all of his personal finances almost immediately), and that Winston never entered the police academy due to his questionable sanity. Most importantly, she’d wake up content to know that her relationship with Nick was still one of blithe, coy tension, and not the muddled mess it tangled itself into last season. Unfortunately for those of us in the real world, season three did happen, and it was a spectacular disaster. The Jess and Nick debacle in particular was like watching a Gordian Knot being hacked blindly with a butter knife. The »

Bryan Cranston’s Baseball One-Man Show Is a Beautiful Disaster

16 hours ago

Bryan Cranston has traded his porkpie hat for a baseball hat in a new short meant to promote the upcoming baseball playoffs. The concept: Cranston is putting on a one-man show about baseball that's influenced by Bugs Bunny and involves throwing baseballs at the audience. It's funny fun times. If this play ever happens, he better say, "I am the one who knocks it out of the park." »

19 Mindy Project Dates, Rated on a Disaster Scale

17 hours ago

At the end of last season, Danny-Mindy shippers got their wish when the two declared their love for each other on top of the Empire State Building and sealed it with a make-out session. Does this mean that our heroine won't be so obsessed with rom-coms this season? Of course not, but it may mean that Mindy won’t be going on anymore awkward dates for the time being. So we at least wanted to remember the journey: all of the men, “from tall and white to short and white,” that she had to date before she found the One. Click through to see them all, rated on a disaster scale. »

Why Tobey Maguire Thinks There’s a Lack of Young Male Movie Stars

18 hours ago

In a 2011 Vulture article, we sized up the sparse field of young leading men in the movies and plaintively asked, “Where Are the New Leos, Tobeys, and Jakes?” Three years later, that drought has only gotten worse. While the movies can boast a plentiful array of bankable female superstars under 25, including Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley, and Kristen Stewart, their male counterparts are meager, and there’s still no young man with an under-25 career comparable to the one had by Leonardo DiCaprio (who’d been Oscar-nominated for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and toplined the then-biggest movie ever, Titanic, before turning 25), Tobey Maguire (who’d by that age starred in classics like The Ice Storm and The Cider House Rules), or Jake Gyllenhaal (who made Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko, and Jarhead before his 25th birthday).What gives? Vulture put the question to Tobey Maguire himself at the Toronto Film Festival, »

18 hours ago

New Girl is back for its fourth season tonight, and we find the gang at a place we all know and love/hate: the last hurrah of wedding season. Twelve weddings in, the troops are grasping at ways to entertain themselves while yet another couple trudges to the altar, even as they try to mend hearts that are in various states of brokenness. Max Greenfield took a break from shooting yesterday to talk about the upcoming season with Vulture, and we discussed all the things he loves: playing Schmidt, people who write their own vows, attending weddings (both when he was single and now that he’s married), Prince, SoulCycle, and the secret rules of True American.Hey, Max! Thanks for taking the time to talk today.I love me some Vulture! I saw you wrote about Pete Davidson this morning. I love him. Love him like you know him in real life, »

Where We Left Off Last Season on New Girl

19 hours ago

Just like Mindy, New Girl is, well, new tonight, and you might need a quick refresher. The roommates have since moved out and then back in again and somehow ended up on a boat for the season finale. Okay! Need a bit more info? Here's our recap of the season-three finale. And here's an interview with the showrunners about why they decide to have Nick and Jess call it off (for good?). »

Married at First Sight’s Resident Sexologist on Season 2 Casting Challenges

19 hours ago

Dr. Logan Levkoff bears a heavy responsibility in these coming months. Along with her three onscreen colleagues — psychologist Dr. Joseph Cilona, sociology professor Dr. Pepper Schwartz, and spiritual advisor Greg Epstein — the New York–based sex educator will be pairing arranged couples for the second season of Married at First Sight, Fyi Network’s first legitimate hit. Lest you missed Married’s inaugural experiment, which wrapped up last week and will reconvene its subjects for the requisite reunion special tonight at 9 p.m., here’s our handy overview of how three pairs of strangers turned newlyweds lived happily (or not so much) ever after. Vulture called up Dr. Levkoff to discuss how the provocative series can maintain its integrity going into season two, what they’re looking for as they set about selecting the cast, and why a show that Dr. Levkoff herself describes as “definitely not The Bachelor” featured a former Bachelor contestant. »

Tom Hiddleston to Star in New King Kong Movie

19 hours ago

At Comic-Con, we were all surprised when Legendary Pictures ended its panel with a teaser for a new King Kong movie. There was no information but a title, Skull Island, which is the name of King Kong's home; it has only been shown briefly in previous movies in the franchise. Today Legendary filled in the most important details: The film will star Tom Hiddleston, with Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) directing. Max Borenstein, who wrote the most recent Godzilla reboot, wrote the first draft of the script. The film is scheduled for a November 4, 2016 release because Legendary does not want anyone to dress as King Kong for Halloween. »

Bryan Fuller on Hannibal, Fannibals, and Finally Having a Show Last More Than 2 Seasons

20 hours ago

Fans of the “Fullerverse” — the sometimes-spooky, always-askew macrocosm where TV producer Bryan Fuller’s shows (Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) are said to take place — have long been cautious about putting down roots there. That’s thanks to Fuller’s track record for making “brilliant but cancelled”–type fare, none of which has lasted more than two seasons. But he’s finally broken his two-and-done curse with Hannibal, his über-macabre take on the modern mythology of Hannibal Lecter, which received a third-season pickup in May. On the eve of Hannibal’s second season arriving on DVD today, we talked to Fuller about Hannibal’s diehard fans (called “Fannibals”), Hannibal’s most divisive characters, and who Kristin Chenoweth could one day play on the show.As someone who’s been a fan of several of your shows, it’s such a pleasure to get to talk to you about a »
