Liv Tyler Joins HBO's Damon Lindelof Drama 'The Leftovers'
HBO has found a leading lady for Justin Theroux. Liv Tyler has been tapped to co-star in the premium cable network's adaptation of The Leftovers, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

'Prometheus' sequel hires a new writer
It’s been almost exactly one year since the Alien pseudo-prequel Prometheus fascinated and infuriated audiences with its mixture of gorgeous visuals and confusing character decisions. Although the film set up a sequel, there hasn’t been much news, besides the revelation that screenwriter Damon Lindelof would not be returning — possibly because he’d like to spend just one summer not reading a nonstop parade of nerd-rage tweets.
But Fox is not letting the project die. EW has confirmed the news originally reported by Variety that screenwriter Jack Paglen has stepped onboard the project. Paglen wrote the upcoming sci-fi film Transcendence, »

'Fifty Shades of Grey': Armie Hammer responds to casting rumors
When Anastasia Steele first meets kinky billionaire Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, she thinks to herself, “No one should be this good-looking.” So it’s no surprise that one of the names thrown around to play the impossibly handsome leading man is the impossibly handsome Armie Hammer.
But is the Lone Ranger star game to fill Grey’s fitted suit in the potentially Nc-17-rated film? Well, in a recent Playboy interview, he addressed the casting rumors:
“No one actually offered me the movie, but while I was working on Lone Ranger my agent brought it up, and I said ‘Nope, »

The new trailer for 'Anchorman 2' finally sets up the premise and shows new footage
Finally… an "Anchorman 2" trailer that features some actual footage from the film. What amazes me is that they've got footage in there from the last day of shooting, which was only two weeks ago. I would imagine they've been cutting as they've been shooting because they're going to be in theaters in December, and knowing the way Adam McKay works, they probably shot about a bazillion feet of footage to give themselves plenty of options for each scene. When I was at the "Despicable Me 2" press day last week, I wrapped up my interview with Steve Carrell and, as »

Outstanding Supporting Actor Comedy - Emmy Nomination Preview 2013
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy is one of the real challenges when it comes to Emmy prognostication. All six nominees return and if Emmy voters are determined to keep honoring a whopping Four "Modern Family" cast members, that leaves even less wiggle room to recognize somebody from the final seasons of "30 Rock" and "The Office" or one of the previously nominated co-stars of "Arrested Development," which was resurrected by Netflix. At least there aren't any entirely new comedies likely to complicate this field. Check out the full gallery below: »

7 Characters From Cannes I Still Can't Get Out of My Mind
1. The Dirty Rotten Scoundrel Found: Glad-handing at the Carlton lobby bar. Drink: Whatever he orders on your tab (likely some brightly colored French liqueur no one can pronounce). Transpo: Knowing all the back alleys and secret entrances, he needs no transportation other than his own confidence. Male, suit and tie, impeccably coiffured hair, bad teeth and worse accent. He is at all the best parties, knows all the VIPs and appears wealthy yet pays only in charm. He has been to Cannes more years than you have been alive, and claims to have »

Jimmy Kimmel Made an Insane Channing Tatum Video
"Who came up with this? And what in the world is going on?" These are questions you'll only be able to entertain for about thirty seconds before submitting to Jimmy Kimmel's Lonely Island-ish video for "(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum." It's got extremely game cameos from Jamie Foxx, Gabourey Sidibe, and Olivia Munn. Kimmel steps in around the two-minute mark to try ruining the magic, but then rapping Channing Tatum keeps it alive. Also, Jamie Foxx's new name is 4 Chainz. »

Paul Feig Wants to Make a Female Spy Movie
Paul Feig — Bridesmaids and The Heat director, Freaks and Geeks creator — is looking to helm a spy flick he wrote called Susan Cooper. TheWrap says it's "a realistic comedy about a female James Bond, rather than a parody along the lines of Get Smart or Johnny English. ... It's described by an individual familiar with the project as a two-hander in the vein of The Heat that lends itself to a possible franchise." Make it like Bridesmaids plus action and we're in. »

Now it's been announced that the return to Isla Nublar will happen in 2015, and it'll happen in 3-D. Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow is still on the project (and playing with old Jurassic Park toys to prepare, apparently). »
