Bobby Cannavale, Woody Allen's Big Guy
33 minutes ago
Bobby Cannavale, dressed in a crisp, dark suit, stops to button his jacket as he enters the swank 21 Club in midtown Manhattan. He's here to chat about his latest movie, Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine (you know, the one that should win Cate Blanchett an Oscar). But he only has a few minutes before he's due on the set of Will Gluck's Annie, where he's starring opposite Quvenzhane Wallis as an advisor to Jamie Foxx's Daddy Warbucks. But that's just Bobby – he's used to being busy. With another »

'X Factor' Recap: Carlito Olivero Edges Out Restless Road
5 hours ago
Carlito Olivero is safe? To quote the Smiths, that joke isn't funny anymore.
However, Thursday night's X Factor results show wasn't kidding: Carlito made it into next week's finals over Restless Road, who reached the end of the, well, road. And someone somewhere is laughing – probably Carlito's space-case mentor Paulina Rubio. But the joke is so old that it's for the birds.

The Dumb & Dumber Golden Globes
6 hours ago
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) that hands out these golden dildos is basically a joke. It consists of 90-odd freelance entertainment reporters based in Los Angeles who contribute stories to foreign publications (they need only four a year to qualify). But the joke Globes are still a marketing force to reckon with: The annual awards ceremony on NBC draws millions of viewers – and millions of dollars – for the HFPA.

How Oscar Isaac Became Llewyn Davis
12 December 2013 12:55 PM, PST
Until they met Oscar Isaac, the Coen Brothers were pretty sure that their tragicomic Inside Llewyn Davis screenplay was unfilmable: Where would they find a crazy-talented singer-guitarist with movie-star presence and major comic acting chops? Isaac, a 33-year-old lifelong rock musician and Juilliard-trained actor who had a Miller's Crossing poster on his wall as a teen in Florida, saw his chance. "I heard they were making it," he says, "and was like, 'This is me, man!'" Thinner, with close-cropped hair and light stubble instead of Llewyn's beatnik beard, Isaac »
'Community' Crosses Darkest Timeline Into Season Five
12 December 2013 12:35 PM, PST
Community's lovable gang of misfits have crossed the darkest timeline of Season Four and are set to return to their beloved study room. The beleaguered, but still breathing, NBC sitcom is set for an hour-long premiere on January 2nd and, with creator Dan Harmon back at the helm, Season Five is looking up with a brand new trailer full of meta-pocalyptic hilarity.
The epic trailer suggests the new season might be centered around a Lord of the Rings spoof, in which Troy (Donald Glover) is violated by the "ass-crack »

12 December 2013 9:25 AM, PST
The long-in-the-works Dennis Wilson bio-pic The Drummer will most likely never go into production.

'Nashville' Recap – Kill Will, or Peggy?
12 December 2013 8:15 AM, PST
Last week, Nashville engaged viewers in a game of carrots and sticks – promising primetime character death on last night's mid-season finale. The show even got its own #WhoWillDie hashtag trending on Twitter. That question (or was it a pun?) is still relevant, as the final minutes of the episode extended that tease with two mutually exclusive potential killings in fade-to-black fashion.

'X Factor' Recap: Demi Lovato Calls Alex and Sierra 'Winners'
12 December 2013 7:25 AM, PST
Oh, X Factor, always swimming against the tide. The producers didn't take the hint when The Voice wisely pared down to a one-hour performance show this week. So, lucky viewers were treated to three rounds of performances by the top four. Kind of like experiencing your own personal Groundhog Day hell in your living room – especially since it meant Carlito Olivero just wouldn't go away.

'Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Music Tale': What Went Wrong?
12 December 2013 6:45 AM, PST
Damn it, Blake Shelton – why did you have to be so awesomely offensive in your Christmas special last year? Thanks to your side-splitting Claymation spoof with Larry the Cable Guy, in which you shot Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and incinerated Sam the Snowman, NBC must've been scared off. In your place, Kelly Clarkson gave us a boring, misguided and uneven hour of television that served as little more than a commercial for her new holiday album, Wrapped in Red. Look, I get that the Peacock network is on a singing-contest-winner »
'American Horror Story: Coven' Recap: Hunter and Prey
11 December 2013 8:05 PM, PST
Oh, sweet stupid Hank. From the moment we found out he was a witch-murderer, we all knew there was no way Hank was going to get the best of the ladies on American Horror Story: Coven. Even when we learn Hank has been trained since childhood as heir to the Delphi Trust of Atlanta, a privately funded sacred brotherhood dedicated specifically to the murder of witches, the knowledge that Hank would goof it up has always been there. Apparently Hank's papa also sensed his son's failings, as he went ahead »

BoJack Horseman will be the streaming service's "first original adult animated series," and it definitely has some comedic thoroughbreds in its stable. Arrested Development star Will Arnett will voice the titular horse – who, according to a press release, »
