Actress Kim Hamilton Dies at 81

6 November 2013 4:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kim Hamilton, an African American actress who appeared onstage, in films and on television and was the wife of the late actor Werner Klemperer — Col. Klink on “Hogan’s Heroes” — at a time when mixed marriages were uncommon even in Hollywood, died of natural causes in Los Angeles on Sept. 16, four days after her 81st birthday.

Two of her early and most noted roles in a career that spanned more than six decades were as Brock Peter’s wife in “To Kill a Mockingbird” and as Harry Belafonte’s wife in “Odds Against Tomorrow.” She had most recently appeared in the 2010 film “The Beginners.”

She appeared in many other films, including “The Greatest Story Ever Told,” “Body & Soul,” “The Wild Angels” and the cult film “Leach Women.”

Her long career on television began with a role as Andy’s girlfriend on “Amos & Andy.” Other credits included “Ben Casey,” “Dr. Kildare, »

Writers and Directors Make TV’s ‘Vast Wasteland’ Bloom

14 August 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In 1963, Emmy nominations for writing and helming went to lawyer and doctor shows; a Western about a crooked poker game; a bittersweet romance; and a stage play starring Trevor Howard as Disraeli. Series and one-offs were lumped together, so there’d be enough to fill the slates.

Those weren’t even among the faves. Double winner “The Defenders” ranked No. 18 on the year, with nominee “Ben Casey” leading its field at No. 7. Only six dramas broke into a top 20 dominated by sitcoms and reality shows.

Fast forward to 2013, and its quantum leap forward in ambition and scope. Quality TV was once seen as the writer’s medium (’63 winner Reginald Rose), and a place for young filmmakers to start out (’63 nominee Sydney Pollack). But today’s marquee helmers embrace longform for its freedom and speed, and the story rather than the individual storyteller is king.

Production values have exploded. Trevor Howard »

'Casting By': John Travolta, John Lithgow thank 'beloved' Lynn Stalmaster

5 August 2013 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

John Travolta certainly knows the value of a having a casting director in his corner.

If not for the faith a legendary one named Lynn Stalmaster had in his talent, the enduring star might never have won the role of "Sweathog" Vinnie Barbarino in the sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter" ... which set him on a course of fame that exploded soon afterward with the successes of such movies as "Saturday Night Fever" and "Grease." Travolta is among those paying tribute to "my beloved Lynn" (as he puts it) and others in the documentary "Casting By," which has its HBO debut Monday, Aug. 5.

"I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for Lynn and his so believing in me," Travolta recalls for Zap2it. "At age 18, I was up for the movie 'The Last Detail,' in the part Randy Quaid eventually played. Lynn was just hellbent to get me cast in that, »

Jeanne Cooper and her quest for a Daytime Emmy

22 May 2013 8:14 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

While you might think Susan Lucci had the hardest journey to Daytime Emmy victory, it took Jeanne Cooper 35 years and nine nominations before she won for playing Katharine Chancellor on "The Young and the Restless." The grande dame of daytime died on May 8 at age 84 after a long illness.  Cooper began on "Y&R" shortly it premiered in 1973. While her character was an instant success, she was only nominated for the first time in 1989. By then, Katherine had been through alcoholism, a couple of husbands, several feuds with Jill Foster Abbot and even a facelift. That latter storyline was groundbreaking as the actress allowed footage of her own facelift to be used. Prior to even contending at the Daytime Emmys, Cooper had been nominated twice at the Primetime awards: she lost her1962 Supporting Actress nod for “Ben Casey” to Pamela Brown for “Hallmark Hall of Fame” and her 1987 Drama Guest »
