Daniel Dae Kim: Why My Lost Death Was So 'Traumatic' for My Son

4 June 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Actors roles are eternal. Their characters? Not so much. And Daniel Dae Kim learned that lesson the hard way. Kim's six-year run on ABC's hit series Lost was cut short when his character, Jin, died unexpectedly in season 6. And Jin's untimely demise was most unexpected for Kim's son, the 47-year-old Hawaii Five-0 star reveals. Kim, who is currently headlining Broadway's The King and I, told People in this week's issue about the late-night phone call he received when his life, and death, on screen hit a little too close to home.You mentioned that Jin's death on Lost was confusing for your oldest son. »

Garden of Evil

13 May 2016 8:10 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Bernard Herrmann music + weird landscapes = Nirvana. This big-star western tale has an unbreakable story but terrible dialogue and weak characters... yet for fans of adventure filmmaking it's a legend, thanks to a thunderous Bernard Herrmann music score that transforms dozens of uncanny, real Mexican locations into something other-worldly. Garden of Evil Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1954 / Color / 2:55 widescreen / 100 min. / Ship Date May 10, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Gary Cooper, Susan Hayward, Richard Widmark, Hugh Marlowe, Cameron Mitchell, Rita Moreno, Víctor Manuel Mendoza. Cinematography Milton R. Krasner, Jorge Stahl Jr. Art Direction Edward Fitzgerald, Lyle Wheeler Film Editor James B. Clark Original Music Bernard Herrmann Special Effects Ray Kellogg Written by Frank Fenton, Fred Freiberger, William Tunberg Produced by Charles Brackett Directed by Henry Hathaway

Age is Just a Number at the TCM Festival

3 May 2016 5:36 PM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

I’m still recovering from the TCM Classic Film Festival this past weekend, where I hosted ten events…but I suspect that some of the people I interviewed are doing just fine because they seem to have limitless energy, not to mention charisma. I’m talking about Darryl Hickman, who’s 85, Rita Moreno, who’s 84, Gina Lollobrigida, who’s 88, and Eva Marie Saint, who knocked me for a loop when she cheerfully volunteered that she’s 92! Rita is still busy doing television, so it’s amazing to think that she played Tuptim in The King and I sixty years ago. She’s as sassy and funny as ever, and when she teased the crowd with mentions of her longtime lover Marlon Brando, she urged them to check out her...

Daniel Dae Kim on His Broadway 'Victory' Headlining The King and I: 'I Didn't Know When This Train Was Going to Come Around Again'

3 May 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For Daniel Dae Kim, it's good to be King. The Lost alum and current Hawaii Five-0 star is achieving a personal and professional dream on Tuesday as he steps into the shoes of The King of Siam in Broadway's The King and I. Kim, 47, takes over for Ken Wantanabe (who received a 2015 Tony nomination for his performance in the revival) and has been dreaming of a role like this since he attended New York University's Graduate Acting Program.

Vinyl episode 10 review: Alibi

Vinyl has much to improve when it returns for season 2, and judging by this solid-enough finale, it's heading in the right direction...

This review contains spoilers.

1.10 Alibi

Taken as a whole, Vinyl is structured around the premise that the behind-the-scenes operation of the music business (encompassing, among other things, dealmaking, artist development, public relations and financing) is just as interesting as the soul shaking, life-affirming product that this bloated industry sells. The premise is correct and there is much to say about men like Richie Finestra and Maury Gold and the companies that they lead. At its best, Vinyl has done a good job of balancing the two elements, never taking its eye off the ball with the music and only rarely doing so with the business side of things. Its missteps have mostly emerged from the moments during which the plot and characters wandered too far »

Vinyl episode 9 review: Rock And Roll Queen

As Vinyl reaches its penultimate episode, we evaluate the season so far...

This review contains spoilers.

1.9 Rock And Roll Queen We reach the penultimate episode of the opening season of Vinyl, with the news that we will be definitely seeing a second and that showrunner Terence Winter will not be part of it. It’s as good a time as any to reflect on what has worked and what has been less successful in the series so far. Such a review could have come at any time in the past few weeks (or indeed, next week) but Rock And Roll Queen offers so much material to pick over that it would be remiss not to take the opportunity.

The episode itself comes towards the end of a solid run of instalments in which the show has demonstrated a welcome focus and clarity in its storytelling. With Richie »

Vinyl: showrunner Terence Winter has left

Boardwalk Empire's Terence Winter has departed HBO show Vinyl ahead of season 2, which will see "a change in the creative direction"...

It's fair to say that things haven't gone swimmingly for HBO's much-hyped Vinyl. The involvement of big names (Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger...) and the richer than rich pickings of the 1970s Us music scene haven't yet added up to TV glory, critically or in terms of ratings. 

HBO is still committed, however, to a second season, following a cockily early renewal. That second season will go on without showrunner Terence Winter (Boardwalk EmpireThe Sopranos), it's been confirmed.

Winter will be replaced by executive producers Scott Z Burns (The Bourne UltimatumContagion) and Max Borenstein (the Minority Report TV show) for Vinyl's second season. HBO describes Winter's exit thusly:

Anastasia

29 March 2016 12:01 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

That scarlet woman Ingrid is back from exile, and hypocritical Hollywood is not complaining -- Anatole Litvak and Arthur Laurents make an intriguing romantic-psychological mystery of a bogus Romanoff Duchess who surfaces in 1928 Paris to claim the crown fortune. Good roles for Yul Brynner and Helen Hayes as well. It's a strange intersection of scandal, history and swindlers that may have found the real item... and maybe not. Anastasia Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1956 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 105 min. / Ship Date March 15, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Ingrid Bergman, Yul Brynner, Helen Hayes, Akim Tamiroff, Martita Hunt, Felix Aylmer, Sacha Pitoeff, Ivan Desny, Natalie Schafer, Karel Stepanek Cinematography Jack Hildyard Art Direction Andrej Andrejew, Bill Andrews Film Editor Bert Bates Original Music Alfred Newman Written by Arthur Laurents from a play by Marcelle Maurette Produced by Buddy Adler Directed by Anatole Litvak

‘Vinyl 1×07: The King and I’ Review

28 March 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“One must be like water.”

The King and I’ is a fucking frustrating episode of Vinyl, which is turning into a fucking frustrating show. There’s that Elvis cameo, lightning from a clear sky, and to either side of it are fields of mayonnaise. Events play out like someone’s checking off squares on a prestige drama bingo card. Soporific scenes of West Coast boredom, more anemic musical interludes, women tossed into the plot like an afterthought to enable a thoroughly pointless twist. Sure, there’s a vague theme of rebellion underlying the whole thing, but it isn’t enough to hold it together when all we have to watch is Ray Romano’s mid-life crisis and Jaimie’s terse stand-off with two old women to whom she is…related? And that shit with Clark in the mail room belongs on an episode of Workaholics. 

But man oh man, that scene with Elvis. »

Stage Door: The King and I

14 March 2016 4:10 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This soundtrack got a lot of play during my childhoodWith Tony season fast approaching, it's time to revive our stage column and try to hit the shows that might be competing this year. But we'll start with a throwback to last season, the revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I which most everyone knows from its 1956 big screen adaptation which won 5 Oscars (albeit in a weird Academy year) and hopefully not from that 1999 Jodie Foster movie Anna and the King.

For those who aren't well versed in Broadway mechanics there's generally a few weeks of performances called "previews" wherein shows are technically not "open" and yet they're playing every night as they approach opening night. It's the easiest time to get tickets to almost anything so if you miss the previews good luck! Other avid theatergoers might have a different take but I've found that as a general rule »

Aaron Sorkin to Adapt ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ for B’way

10 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Aaron Sorkin is bringing Scout Finch to the spotlight. The Academy Award–winning screenwriter behind “The Social Network” and “Steve Jobs” is reteaming with producer Scott Rudin with a stage adaptation of “To Kill A Mockingbird” for the 2017–18 Broadway season. Taking a break from musical theater, Tony-winning director Bartlett Sher (“The King and I,” “Fiddler on the Roof”) is also attached for the adaptation of Harper Lee’s 1960 American classic. Both Sorkin and Rudin have a history in the theater; Rudin is particularly seasoned with hits like “A Raisin in the Sun” and “The Book of Mormon,” while Sorkin is best known in theater circles for “A Few Good Men,” for which he also wrote the screenplay. With such heavy-hitters already attached, we can’t wait to see how casting shakes up! Is it too early to tap “Room” star Jacob Tremblay as Scout’s 10-year-old brother, Jem Finch? And »

Aaron Sorkin is returning to Broadway with a stage adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, producer Scott Rudin announced on Wednesday. The production will be directed by The King and I's Bartlett Sher, with no word on a premiere date or location. Harper Lee's novel was previously adapted for the stage by Christopher Segel, in productions in New Jersey and London, but the West Wing creator's version will be Mockingbird's Broadway debut. Sorkin is a perfect match for the iconic novel, which is, of course, the story of an older man explaining liberal values to a young woman. »

James Dean's 85th Birthday: 9 Ways His Legacy Lives On After Death

James Dean would have turned 85 years old on Monday. Feb. 8. Of course, Dean died in an automobile crash on Sept. 30, 1955. He was only 24 years old at the time, meaning that he's been dead almost three times as long as he was alive, yet the image of the heartthrob star still persists - uniquely among stars of his era and uniquely among stars who died young. He still appears on posters, in magazines and in representations on film, and young people today might well know who he is, even if they've never seen one of his movies.
