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

38 minutes 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

1 hour 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

2 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, »

New Girl’s Max Greenfield Loves Weddings and Michelle Obama, and He Doesn’t Care Who Knows It

2 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

3 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

3 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

3 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, Mannibals, and Finally Having a Show Last More Than 2 Seasons

4 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 “Mannibals”), 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 »

Snowpiercer’s Most Memorable Scenes, Illustrated

4 hours ago

It's practically fall, but we're still thinking about Snowpiercer and that train, and whether we'd belong to the head or the tail, whether we'd eat that "special" protein bar, and whether we'd indulge in the Kronole. (Have no idea what we're talking about? Watch the movie on VOD!) To continue our celebration of the film, we had illustrator Tuesday Bassen sketch her version of the film's most notable cars. You'll see a side-scrolling version below, as if you were on the train, and then you can click below that to see all the illustrations in poster form. Can you match every illustrated car with its corresponding scene? »

The Best Movies of 2014 So Far

6 hours ago

We're about to head into Oscar movie season, and with eight months of movies behind us, it's time to take stock. Here are the best reviewed movies of the year so far, according to Vulture's movie critics David Edelstein and Bilge Ebiri. Big-Budget Extravagances Dawn of the Planet of the Apes “The latest Apes picture, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, is an excellent interspecies bromance between an ape and a man who’d like to live in peace but are surrounded by warmongering assholes.” Guardians of the Galaxy "Director James Gunn ... has a rare talent, one that George Lucas also had but few filmmakers working in this genre do: He can effortlessly cut between evocative worlds we’ve never seen before without losing sight of the action and the pace of his narrative."Edge of Tomorrow“The twisty, entertaining Tom Cruise vehicle Edge of Tomorrow is Groundhog Day »

Judd Apatow’s New Show Is Coming to Netflix

6 hours ago

The streaming wars are heating up: Netflix beat out Hulu and Amazon Prime for the rights to Love, a new romantic-comedy series from Judd Apatow, Girls writer Leslie Arfin, and Comedy Bang! Bang!'s Paul Rust (who will star alongside Gillian Jacobs). Netflix won the show in part because it offered a two-season commitment right off the bat, a power move the network previously employed to land House of Cards. Frank Underwood would approve. »

David Lynch Thinks No One Will Ever Agree on What Eraserhead Is About

7 hours ago

David Lynch’s debut feature Eraserhead debuts this week on the Criterion Collection, in an edition that looks gorgeous and is loaded (loaded) with extras. It feels about time, too. Lynch’s bizarre, unclassifiable movie, filmed over several years on pretty much no budget, is one of the seminal works of American independent cinema. A permanent fixture on the midnight movie circuit in the 1970s and '80s, Eraserhead taught generations of adventurous viewers that movies were capable of so much more than what ordinary audiences were used to. In the film, Lynch creates a haunting, industrial netherworld in which his happy-haired protagonist (Jack Nance) moves, a permanent mixture of befuddlement and fear playing out on his face as he confronts responsibility, love, loss, and death. It’s a wonderful movie, and we were honored to get a chance to speak to Lynch about its legacy.I know you didn »

Will the True Detective rumors ever end? The Wrap is reporting that there are seven more women being considered for the season-two lead spot (Ani Bezzerides, “a tough, no-nonsense Monterey sheriff whose troubled upbringing has driven her to gambling and alcohol”), and they are as follows: Brit Marling (The East), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Kelly Reilly (Flight), Malin Akerman, Rosario Dawson, and Jessica Biel.

My Father Was James Brown. I Watched Him Beat My Mother. And Then I Found Myself With Someone Like Dad.

7 hours ago

It's no secret that James Brown had a dark side. This summer's biopic Get On Up left out many of the weird, uncomfortable, and simply violent incidents that Brown instituted or participated in. But it wasn't until now that we've been able to get a look at just how frightening the singer could be. Earlier this month, his daughter Yamma Brown published a memoir titled Cold Sweat: My Father James Brown and Me (co-written with Robin Gaby Fisher) that details her life growing up with her often volatile dad. In the excerpt below, Yamma flashes back to a moment when Brown beat her mother in front of her and her sister, then writes about how that violent legacy stayed with her into adulthood.The beatings always begin the same way, with the same terrible sounds. My parents are in their bedroom, behind closed doors. First comes the boom of my »

Tommy Chong’s Dancing With the Stars Performance Was Not Subtle About the Whole Marijuana Thing

8 hours ago

Tommy Chong wasn't technically allowed to use marijuana imagery on Dancing With the Stars this season, but like the spry 76-year-old he is, Chong decided to soft-shoe right on up to that line. On last night's season premiere, the herbal enthusiast emerged from a smoke-filled lowrider to dance along to a Snoop Dogg song with his improbably named partner Peta Murgatroyd, who was dressed as an anthropomorphic cannabis plant. If DWTS would have let him, we're guessing his routine would have been three minutes and 20 seconds longer. »
