Steve Coogan to Replace Philip Seymour Hoffman in Showtime’s ‘Happyish’

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

Steve Coogan has signed on to star in the Showtime comedy pilot “Happyish.” The half-hour pilot will be filmed in New York this December.

Happyish” had originally been planned as a starring vehicle for Philip Seymour Hoffman, but was put on hold after the actor’s death until the role could be recast.

Coogan will play Thom Payne, a 44 year-old man whose world is thrown into disarray when he gets a new 25-year-old “wunderkind” boss, who says things like “digital,” “social” and “viral.”  Is he in need of a “rebranding,” as his mentor insists, or does he just have a “low joy ceiling,” as his corporate headhunter suggests?

Happyish” was created, written and executive produced by critically acclaimed author and regular “This American Life” contributor Shalom Auslander.

Film Review: ‘The Silent Storm’

41 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few things in film are more dispiriting than the spectacle of very good actors giving very bad performances — and there’s already a surfeit on onscreen gloom for viewers to contend with in “The Silent Storm.” A sincerely but shakily conceived narrative debut for writer-helmer Corinna McFarlane, this uber-dour study of marital collapse casts Damian Lewis and Andrea Riseborough adrift as an abusively ascetic Scottish minister and his lonely, browbeaten wife, yielding characterizations of such unchecked intensity as to steer proceedings to the point of parody. The stars’ respectively high profiles may secure limited distributor interest in this London festival premiere, but it’d be best for auds and actors alike if this particular storm were to blow over as silently as possible.

With the unlikely figure of 007 keeper Barbara Broccoli on the executive producers’ bench, “The Silent Storm” isn’t the fictional venture one might have predicted from McFarlane, »

Marvel blames Hydra for leaked 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' trailer

47 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The new trailer for "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" was supposed to air for the first time during next week's episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Instead, it leaked tonight (Oct. 22), a whole six nights early. The high quality video clip is being stripped from sites at a pretty quick pace. But still, that's gotta hurt a little for Marvel. So Marvel, in its wisdom, knows where to place the blame: Hydra. Dammit, Hydra. — Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) October 22, 2014 That's right, the terrorist organization that hangs over many stories in the Marvel Universe -- and fueled adventures in both "Captain America" films and 2012's "The Avengers" -- may be the reason you're chasing dragons on YouTube right now. Hail Hydra, sorry ABC. This second "Avengers" film is in theaters on May 1, 2015. »
