Cougars, Gray Panthers, Silver Foxes: It's a Jungle Out There
Cougars to the left! Cougars to the right! Older women with a strong sense of who they are and what they want and who make no bones about it have never been more visible. But how do you feel about the sobriquet they've quickly earned? It certainly grates on my ear and has driven a curiosity to see how this shift is playing both in the media and in real life, perhaps an increasingly meaningless distinction, I'll admit. Movies have a mixed record on these issues, as we addressed in my earlier post. But it's TV »

Longmire: TV Review
It’s very hard to make a great Western. The last of its kind was Deadwood on HBO, which went off the air prematurely in 2006. But the good news for networks and cable channels looking to make a Western – and at one point there were at least five in development, not counting AMC’s Hell On Wheels which finished its first season and A&E’s Longmire, which airs tonight – is that viewers don’t necessarily want a great Western. They are actually a pretty easy bunch to satisfy. Photos: Summer TV Preview 2012: Until the saturation point makes everyone long for

Your Sunday Long Reads: The History of The Wire, Jonathan Lethem on the Talking Heads, and The New Yorker on Sci-Fi
It's Sunday afternoon, or: your last chance to read all that stuff you meant to read last week before Monday brings a new deluge of things you will want to read. Below, some of our recommendations: "Maxim Interrogates the Makers and Stars of The Wire," by Marc Spitz (Maxim): An oral history of the show, as told by creator David Simon, co-executive producer and writer Ed Burns, Method Man, former HBO chairman and CEO Chris Albrecht, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Sonja Sohn, and pretty much everyone else who made it happen. "Fear of Music," by Jayson Greene (Pitchfork): A conversation with author Jonathan Lethem on his new book for the 33 1/2 series, which devotes each volume to a single album. As the title suggests, Letham chose the Talking Heads' 1979 release, which "swept over the 15-year-old like a UFO passing over a cornfield." The Science Fiction Issue (The New »

News Nuggets: Ways the MTV Movie Awards improve on the Oscars
Ways the MTV Movie Awards improve on the Oscars: "While the Oscars are great at recognizing movies that have certain admirable qualities – distinctive and energetic acting, say, or beautifully stylized dialogue – they have never been nearly as good at recognizing the value of the entertainment side of moviegoing. They have been reticent to acknowledge on an institutional level that people go to the movies, much of the time, to experience something exhilarating. They go to laugh, to weep and swoon, to look at beautiful places, to be scared and excited and surprised. They don't always go in order to see the most skilled artists at work. Sometimes they just want to be made to react." NPR "Homeland" hoping to bring an Emmy breakthrough to Showtime: "... if the show were to win the Emmy for best dramatic series, it would be the first ever drama or comedy series win for Showtime, »

Snow White Handily Beats Abysmal Expectations
After girding itself for a catastrophic $40 million-or-less opening weekend (at least according to an internal Universal memo Vulture peeked at), Snow White and the Huntsman zoomed past all expectations with a $56 million opener. "There’s a palpable sense of relief around Universal Pictures and even Hollywood," Nikki Finke reports on Deadline, "now that the Charlize Theron-Kristen Stewart-Chris Hemsworth starrer directed by first-timer Rupert Sanders and produced by Joe Roth is showing promise at the domestic box office." Snow White even surpassed, in three days, Battleship's three-week total. As for the other box office blockbusters, Men in Black 3 and The Avengers, they've peaked — both are down by more than 50 percent since last weekend. »

True or False? Angelina Jolie Approached to Direct 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
A fun rumor went around Hollywood this past weekend: Angelina Jolie, people were saying, had been approached to direct the movie version of the steamy romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey. THR checked out the chatter last weekend and sources said there may have been an informal conversation but that nothing was real, and reps for the actress-turned-filmmaker say there haven't been any talks with studio Focus Features (Focus also denied the rumor). Still, bloggers are now starting to catch wind of the rumor and of course, in Hollywood, there's always the possibility that Jolie will come aboard.

Chris Messina on challenges of playing vet turned whistleblower in 'Damages' [Video]
"In 'Six Feet Under' I was cast as a Republican lawyer, and then Woody Allen cast me as a Republican [in 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'] … so when I went to meet with those guys I was very adamant about not being a lawyer on their show or a Republican," says Chris Messina referring to his first casting call for "Damages." He got his wish. Instead of a Republican lawyer, he plays Chris Sanchez, a traumatized soldier who becomes a whistle-blower against a powerful private defense contractor. He's a contender for Best Drama Guest Actor at the Emmys. Messina's character suffers from post-traumatic stress following an assignment in Afghanistan. To prepare for his scenes, he says, he would "stay awake and not sleep, and then I'd go to work and right before action … I would drink two Red Bulls … I didn't have to act jittery – I was jittery and tired and kind of confused and emotional. »
