'Twin Peaks' Official Cast List Includes Michael Cera, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eddie Vedder, Trent Reznor, And More

25 April 2016 10:48 AM, PDT

We're still a long way from David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" revival, which isn't set to air on Showtime until 2017, but there is still a lot to talk about. It was just over a week ago that Go For Locations — who tweet about production and location news — said that filming had wrapped on the "first 2 seasons" of "Twin Peaks." Of course, that set off a frenzy of speculation that we're getting even more than we bargained for, with chatter only increasing when the post was deleted, and the account started protecting their tweets. Meanwhile, casting has seen also seen as much rumor as official word, with Lynch and co. cagey about who will be coming back, and which new faces will be arriving. Well, now we know. Showtime, David Lynch and Mark Frost has released the official cast list for "Twin Peaks" and it's massive. Running 217 names long, it's a lot to pore over, »

Ezekiel, Shiva and Their Kingdom Might Be Coming to 'The Walking Dead' to Join Fight Against Negan

25 April 2016 9:27 AM, PDT

Word on "Walk Dead" street is that AMC has issued a casting call for what will be a recurring role for a character named Augustus, who, according to "Walking Dead" graphic novel experts, looks just like a character in the source material named Ezekiel - a former zookeeper and self-proclaimed king of The Kingdom, described as flamboyant, wise, and weird, and one of the "good guys." He also has a pet tiger named Shiva. From the "Walking Dead" wiki: Ezekiel, more commonly known as "King" Ezekiel, is a main character - a self-proclaimed "king" of a community called "The Kingdom", the namesake of his own community. Ezekiel has a pet tiger named Shiva. Ezekiel is a friend of the Hilltop Colony and a close friend to Paul Monroe.

Dwayne Johnson Is Ready To Play In New Trailer For 'Ballers' Season 2

25 April 2016 7:32 AM, PDT

Sure, "Game Of Thrones" might be HBO's biggest show, but when it comes to their comedies, you might be surprised to learn the hit series title doesn't belong to "Veep" or "Silicon Valley." It's actually "Ballers" that's bringing in viewers in a massive way, and you can probably thank the star wattage of Dwayne Johnson for that. And he's bringing his charisma and well tailored suits back for a second season and a new trailer is here. Essentially "Entourage" by way of sports, the Miami-set show follows The Rock, agent to top tier athletes, as he navigates the egos and money that are involved when dealing with that world. Key supporting roles are filled by Rob Corddry, with Andy Garcia playing the baddie this season. "Ballers" is back on July 17th.

“We Are Writing The Final Act Now”: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Showrunners Talk The Road To The End

25 April 2016 7:12 AM, PDT

As fans continue to discuss everything that happened on the first episode of “Game Of Thrones” season six, they do so with the knowledge that the end is nigh. The showrunners have already teased they’ve got about thirteen episodes left to go before the saga in Westeros is finished, and they are underlining the fact that the series will be concluded in the not too distant future. “We're approaching the finish line. From the outset, our hope was to tell a complete story — beginning, middle and end. We are writing the final act now, and the last thing we want to do is stay on stage after the play is over,” David Benioff and D.B. Weiss told THR. The pair admit they saw the end on the horizon a few years back, when they met with author George R.R. Martin and knew the show would wind up outpacing the source material. »

'Game of Thrones' Cast and Crew Reveal The Truth Behind Jon Snow’s Death

25 April 2016 6:48 AM, PDT

Sure, Jon Snow's death (or "death," depending on where you fall on the "Is he dead?" spectrum) on "Game of Thrones" spun fans into varying levels of horror, shock and awe when it landed last season, but what about the people who make the actual series? Turns out, they're dealing with as many (if not more) emotions than the average "Got" fan.  Read More: Review: 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Episode 1, 'The Red Woman,' Finds New Sparks In Familiar Territory As the HBO series kicked off Season 6 last night, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with a number of the show's cast and crew members to sound off on their feelings about the death of the Lord Commander. Their reactions ran the gamut, from the disbelief of Michael McElhatton (who plays the nefarious Roose Bolton on the series), who told the outlet, "I can't believe they didn't bring »

Danny McBride and Walton Goggins Battle In New Trailer For HBO’s ‘Vice Principals’

25 April 2016 6:42 AM, PDT

After “Eastbound & Down” called it a day, it was likely just a matter of time before HBO and Danny McBride found something else to work on together, and indeed they have. “Vice Principals” is the latest twisted comedy to come from the ‘Eastbound’ team, and it looks like fans are in for a treat. McBride and Walton Goggins lead the show, squaring off as high school vice principals angling for the top job. Of course, this leads to the kind of wild antics we expect from McBride, plus plenty of foul mouthed quips to go with it. Meanwhile, the supporting cast is strong with Shea Whigham, Busy Philipps, and Georgia King getting in on the fun. “Vice Principals” hits HBO on July 17th. Watch below.

Review: 'Veep' Season 5 Episode 1 'Morning After' Teases Hope

24 April 2016 8:00 PM, PDT

Immediate ReactionThough Selina sadly couldn't say the same thing about her presidential bid, we're all winners tonight. "Veep" is back, and it feels just like it did when we last left. After Armando Iannucci's departure at the end of Season 4, fans have been waiting on pins and needles to see if the series would slide quickly down the tubes without his guiding hand. Instead, it looks like new showrunner David Mandel — with the help of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who's taken on an expanded role as producer this year — are keeping things running at top speed. What a relief, and what an exciting new season it's suddenly become. Season 4 Finale Review: 'Veep' Season 4 Episode 10 'Election Night' Puts Its Own Twist on History Politically Correct ResponseAll eyes were indeed on Mandel and his inherited cast and characters during Episode 1, as viewers watched for more than just a good episode of TV in »

Review: 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Episode 1, 'The Red Woman,' Finds New Sparks In Familiar Territory

24 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT

One of the most striking aspects of "The Red Woman," the premiere episode of "Game of Thrones" Season 6, is that it's funny. And it's funny in multiple ways, from turning a minor character's death at the hands of the Sand Snakes into a punchline, to Tyrion's attempts to connect with a beggar being skewed by mistranslations, to an extended Dothraki comedy bit about beautiful women.  Read More: 'Game of Thrones': Meet Indiewire's Panel of Critics For Season 6 That levity is welcome, in an episode that's not immune to the show's legendary darkness (including a huge number of deaths within the Martell house), but does feel somehow lighter than where we left off in Season 5. The bodies still pile up in a sprawling episode full of ongoing storylines, but there's a definite sense that there's hope for some of these hopeless sorts.  This sense began surprisingly early in the »
