Jenji Kohan On the Naked Truth of 'Orange is the New Black'

59 minutes ago

Putting together a television show involves an infinite number of stresses, but Orange is the New Black showrunner Jenji Kohan honed in on one specific challenge at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society lunch, according to The Hollywood Reporter: "I love graphic sex, the more sex the better," she said. "Very often it's convincing the actors to get naked… You hope everyone will just be cool about it, and then they're not. There's a lot of convincing and making people feel comfortable."

It may have been the most New York moment in years.

Robert De Niro, onstage Wednesday night at the Beacon Theatre, introduced Time Is Illmatic, the new documentary on Nas' 1994 landmark debut Illmatic, to kick off the Tribeca Film Festival. "Twenty years ago, I would've been 20 years too old for this music," quipped the actor and festival co-founder to a boisterous crowd of fans, media and seemingly every important hip-hop figure in mid-Nineties New York.

'The Americans' Recap: The Lady or the Seal?

12 hours ago

Since this week's episode is entitled "New Car," it's appropriate to describe it as the point in a long road trip where you leave the rest stop or "Last Chance for Gas" ghost town, with only the final leg of the journey ahead of you  (until the season finale, at least – it was announced today that The Americans has been picked up for a third season). Make sure you have everything you need to fortify yourself (i.e. water, snacks – or in this case, plot threads figured out) for the bumpy ride that's inevitably ahead. »

The Write Stuff: Q&A with 'Community's Jim Rash

22 hours ago

Jim Rash is currently having a very good year. The Oscar-winning screenwriter (remember his Angelina Jolie-leg impersonation onstage?) is following up his co-directorial debut The Way, Way Back with a new project named The Heart, set to star Kristin Wiig; Community, NBC's fan-favorite metasitcom featuring Rash as Greendale’s socially floundering Dean Craig Pelton, has experienced a critical resurgence thanks to the return of original showrunner Dan Harmon; and his SundanceTV show The Writer's Room, in which Rash talks to the writing staffs responsible for some of TV's best running shows, »

Wolverine Assembles His Mutant Crew in New 'X-Men' Trailer

16 April 2014 8:25 AM, PDT

Wolverine's getting the old gang back together in the third and final trailer for Marvel's X-Men: Days of Future Past. This latest clip finds the ass-kicking mutant (Hugh Jackman) time-traveling 50 years into the past to assemble a more youthful version of his crew and prevent a catastrophic future event. "I was sent here for you – from the future," says Wolverine to a disheveled Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), who responds with a puzzled "Could you give that to me one more time, please?"

The Search Begins in First Trailer for David Fincher's 'Gone Girl'

15 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT

Something's afoot in the first trailer for David Fincher's upcoming mystery thriller, Gone Girl, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name. The new clip finds Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, reeling in the aftermath of the disappearance of his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), amidst search parties, candlelight vigils and incessant television coverage. The mood, however, soon shifts when we're shown shots of the couple fighting and detectives scouring the Dunne residence for clues. The clip ends with a smarmy sounding Nick telling a TV interviewer: »

Murder, Snow and Minnesota Nice: The Return of 'Fargo'

15 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT

"I mean, the guy is a fucking Komodo dragon, but he has the bangs of Ken Burns?" The whole table laughs, and Billy Bob Thornton smiles, knowing he's just nailed it. The subject is a hired killer; specifically, the horrible, Moe Howard-ish bowl haircut that this professional hit man sports. Sitting across from Thornton in a Midtown conference room, Colin Hanks stares up at the ceiling and then adds "He's like a human ficus plant. Put the guy in a corner, and you wouldn't even notice him."

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Clip Shows New Mutants in Opening Battle

14 April 2014 11:45 AM, PDT

Mutants blast fire, slide on ice and jump through portals in a clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past that Ellen Page – the movie's Shadowcat – premiered during the MTV Movie Awards. The one-minute teaser shows a snippet of the movie's opening battle, which includes a lot of running and jumping as they react to a Sentinel attack. But, like a good teaser, it doesn't reveal much more than immediate urgency and anticipation, feelings that will only be resolved when the movie hits theaters on May 23rd.

Martin: Who kills Joffrey? 

Rolling Stone: That killing apparently happens early in this fourth season. The Song of Ice and Fire books, of course, are well past the poisoning of King Joffrey.

'Mad Men' Season Premiere Recap: Nowhere to Hide

13 April 2014 8:05 PM, PDT

I don't think there's enough sunshine in all of California to brighten up the dark state of affairs everyone is in as Mad Men begins the first half of its last lap. Where does one begin in this cold January of 1969? Peggy crumpled on the floor in sobs of her great-big-investment Upper West Side apartment? Roger passed out naked on the floor of his filthy, garbage-littered hotel-room-cum-counterculture-commune? Ken – still sporting an eye patch from his little shotgun mishap with the Chevy execs – completely overwhelmed and overworked? A happy, suntanned Pete – seriously, »

Mark Wahlberg Swears His Way Through MTV Movie Awards

13 April 2014 7:47 PM, PDT

Mark Wahlberg knows how to do many things: convincingly play a 1970s porn star and a boxer, dance around in his underwear, and say "Not you! Not you! And not you!" in a think Boston accent. You can add "accept an award while swearing like a truck driver" to that roster, as Wahlberg gave a memorably profane acceptance speech while picking up an honorary "Generation" statuette at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

'Game of Thrones' Recap: Purple Reign

13 April 2014 7:05 PM, PDT

They said the royal wedding would be the most anticipated celebration King's Landing has seen in years. They couldn't have known how right they were.

By next week's episode, we may see the capital of the Seven Kingdoms turn up like Storrs, Connecticut after an Ncaa Championship. But tonight's episode, the Alex Graves-directed "The Lion and the Rose," cuts off at the buzzer-beater.

Watch the 50 Celebrity Cameos MTV Movie Awards Intro

13 April 2014 6:10 PM, PDT

You expect a lot of celebrity power at the MTV Movie Awards; you don't expect, however, 50 famous faces to show up in the first five minutes of the show. But that's exactly what the 2014 edition of the network's annual shindig did, kicking off the show with a filmed bit in which host Conan O'Brien asked a room full of corporate suits what the previous record for most celebrity appearances in an intro. He's told the previous record was eight; O'Brien claims he can get 50 (!) to drop in, at which point »
