Review: 'The Leftovers' - 'The Garveys at Their Best'

24 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Leftovers" coming up just as soon as I get a Thug Life tattoo on my neck... "Sometimes, you have to pretend." -Kevin "The Leftovers" has offered some very brief glimpses of the world before the Sudden Departure, and alluded to the characters' histories. It's been focusing on the aftermath of what happened, and hoping that the performances and what little backstory we've been given will be enough to give us a sense of why the Garveys, Nora, Patti, Matt and the others have been acting the way they have three years later. And for the most part, I think the show's been enormously successful at that. Amy Brenneman's face tells me so much about Laurie, for instance, that I was actually relieved she didn't start talking to Patti when they were in the diner in the wake of Gladys' murder. That said, the past »

The one exception is Connected, AOL’s first long-form series, which is slated for a 20-episode initial run of half-hour episodes. It follows five seemingly unconnected New Yorkers as their individual stories are woven together.

29 April 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

CEO Tim Armstrong told about 2,000 advertisers at his company’s Newfront presentation today that AOL decided to hold its presentation in the Brooklyn Navy Yard — near the Brooklyn Bridge — to make a point about bridging the gap between TV and digital video. But the unseasonably cold rain left staffers trying to make the best of a bad situation as they huddled annoyed young ad buyers into ferry boats and then into an overpacked warehouse to see brief presentations about AOL’s original programming. “We need to be scouts, curators, wide open to talent … on every platform the tech world is dreaming up,” AOL Brand Group CEO Susan Lyne — formerly President of ABC Entertainment — told the crowd.

Peter Dinklage interview: X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Game Of Thrones fandom and more

20 February 2014 3:03 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Ryan Lambie 24 Feb 2014 - 05:50

We chat to the great Peter Dinklage about his role in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, meeting Game Of Thrones fans, and much more...

When we caught up with Peter Dinklage for a group interview during last June's visit to the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, he was dressed impeccably in a crisply-pressed 70s suit. With large shades, a handsomely curved moustache and voluminous hair parted to one side, he'd fit right into the cast of Anchorman. Instead, Dinklage is playing Bolivar Trask, who comic book readers will know is one of the key players in the Days Of Future Past story.

As the shoot of Bryan Singer's forthcoming X-Men movie rumbled on not far from where we were sitting, Dinklage talked enthusiastically about his role in the story - while keeping specifics of the plot firmly under wraps - meeting »

The actor graced the screen with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in Catching Fire last Fall and had recently filmed scenes for the follow-up films.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's "Hunger Games" Legacy to Live On

2 February 2014 12:44 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Hollywood suffered a tragic loss Sunday with the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman -- but fans will be happy to know his "Hunger Games" legacy will live on.The late actor starred as Plutarch Heavensbee in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," a character who becomes vital in the final book, "Mockingjay." Lionsgate made the decision to split the book into two separate movies, one due out this year and the other due out in November 2015.And, while that second release date is very far away, we're told Hoffman's work was "substantially" complete for the first film and was just seven days shy of completion for Part 2. The actor's death will not affect the release dates for either film, though it sounds like his role will have to be scaled back a bit in the final one of the franchise. It does not seem like they'll need to recast the role. »

The 11 Greatest Moments From Howard Stern's 60th Birthday Bash

31 January 2014 10:10 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The timing was coincidental, but it made a lot of sense for Howard Stern to throw his massive 60th birthday concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom right around the same time as the Golden Globes, the State of the Union, the Super Bowl and the Grammys. In many ways, the evening felt like a combination of all those events: It had the all-star musical collaborations of the Grammys, the random grouping of A-list celebrities eating and drinking together that you usually only see at the Golden Globes, the chants, crazily-coveted »
