Seth Meyers to Host 2014 Emmy Awards

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth Meyers has been tapped to host NBC’s telecast of the Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 25.

NBC and the Television Academy have also set kudocast vet Don Mischer as exec producer of the live broadcast originating from downtown L.A.‘s Nokia Theatre.

There was little doubt that the host of this year’s Emmycast would come from NBC’s latenight ranks, given all the changes that NBC implemented this year.

Peacock execs likely concluded that Meyers would get more of a boost from the Emmycast showcase than Fallon, who has been on a strong ratings roll since he took the helm of “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno in February.

Fallon benefited from the Emmy spotlight when he hosted in 2010, about 18 months after he replaced Conan O’Brien on “Late Night.”

Meyers’ long run at “Saturday Night Live” makes him perfectly suited for awards-show duty. He also hosted »

Bryan Singer X-es Himself Out Of ‘X-Men’ Publicity As He Defends Self Against Sexual Abuse Allegations

12 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Breaking: After pulling out of a scheduled appearance to promote X-Men: Days Of Future Past at last weekend’s Wondercon, director Bryan Singer has announced that he’s not going to participate in the launch publicity for the Fox tent pole because of the allegations of sex abuse that are the subject of a civil lawsuit and allegedly occurred in 1999. This case is sordid, and has been a challenge for some news outlets because Singer was among several names named, with no evidence so far. He originated the X-Men franchise for Fox, directing the first two stellar films, and this was expected to be a triumphant return. But though unsubstantiated at this point, the allegations are serious, the scandal is growing, and it is not surprising to see him bow out. Here is a statement that Singer issued through his publicist: ‘The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false, »

Final ‘Hobbit’ Movie Gets New Name

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Jackson, director of the “Hobbit” movie franchise, announced on his Facebook page Thursday morning that the third and final “Hobbit” movie has a new name.

Originally titled “There and Back Again,” Jackson wrote that the new name will be “Battle of the Five Armies.” Rumors of a name change have been circulating for the past week, sparked when fan site TheOneRing.net reported that New Line had registered the name “The Hobbit: Into the Fire.”

The franchise’s studio Warner Bros. confirmed the change.

In the “Hobbit” franchise, the now titular battle refers to epic showdown in which many previously introduced characters and creatures, including goblins, dwarves, elves and men, emerge to go up against each other.

While only two “Hobbit” films were originally planned, a third was added after Jackson borrowed characters from the “Lord of the Rings” franchise and added some original story. “An Unexpected Journey,” the first “Hobbit” movie, »

'The Killing' final season gets Netflix release date

14 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The final season — the real final season this time — of The Killing has a release date.

Netflix will unleash the last season of the murky, rainy crime drama on Aug. 1. The final fourth-season batch is only six episodes, so this is one binge you can easily polish off in a single night.

As we’ve previously noted, The Killing, which stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Seattle detectives, was AMC’s true zombie show — a series that was canceled twice and then revived twice. More details about its improbably resurrection. »

Bitch Stole My Look! Cameron Diaz vs. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Isabel Marant

just now | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cameron Diaz is living out every female celeb's worst nightmare. She's wearing the same outfit as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—after Rosie wore it. There may be no greater fashion hell. Of course The Body Book author has just an enviable a shape as the Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon actress, but that just makes the battle of who wore it best trickier. But if this is a question of who had more fun wearing it, the answer is obviously The Other Woman star. Since the Isabel Marant one-piece is such a simple, black design, we have to judge on accessories and overall styling. The British beauty chose a classic tan overcoat and Jackie O glasses with equally sophisticated hair. The Cali native went in the »

Neil Patrick Harris Liked the Himym Ending

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

While promoting his Broadway show Hedwig and the Angry Itch on Letterman tonight, the former Mr. Barney Stinson took some time to talk about the ending of How I Met Your Mother, which, if you'll recall, not everyone was so thrilled about. Nph, for his part, claimed to be a fan. "I was a big proponent of it, a big fan of it," he told Dave. "Sometimes, people’s growth doesn’t really mean that they grow up. There are certain people who you want them to get into a solid relationship and really settle down and learn from things. And you want Barney to be the guy you can bring your mom home to — but Barney’s the guy who wants to bang your mom." Fair point! »

MTV Adds Reality Show From Buckwild Producers

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Today MTV announced a bunch of new series and renewed some old favorites, including The Real World, which will be back for an impressive 30th season. Amongst the new offerings is a show from the producers of Buckwild called Slednecks, which follows the lives of a group of "outdoor tough" friends living in Alaska's "modern-day Wild, Wild West." While producer J.P. Williams publicly blasted MTV for cancelling Buckwild after participant Shain Gandee's death last year, it's appears they've buried the hatchet in the name of a higher good. Specifically, bringing viewers more raucous, state-specific reality TV. »

'Deliver Us From Evil' made Olivia Munn into supernatural believer

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Anaheim, Calif. - "I didn't believe in the supernatural before this movie," Olivia Munn said of her latest "Deliver Us From Evil." The actual footage from the New York Police Department of real-life exorcisms changed the actress' mind. "I'm a full believer [now]." Speaking to HitFix from WonderCon last weekend, Munn said that her co-star Eric Bana warned her about these tapes, that he couldn't sleep for three weeks after watching them all. "I watched only half of one tape and I had to stop," she said. Some tape. Director Scott Derrickson actually re-enacted footage of that one scene she saw for the film, which -- for at least one of Munn's friends -- was effectively scary enough that he'd happily never have to see the film again. Watch the rest of the interview with Munn above, on what she wanted her audience to get about the "home base," on the »

Why not watch this video of 'Frozen' characters doing the 'Thriller' dance

"Where do people find the time for this stuff?" is a question I ask myself all day, every day, and it is a question I will likely continue to ask myself in perpetuity until the end of time. But hey, what the hell, right? Some crafty person made this video of the "Frozen" characters dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and it is delightful and frivolous and strange and a perfect waste of 2 1/2 minutes that you were probably just gonna spend browsing Facebook anyway.
