David Huddleston, Who Played ‘The Big Lebowski,’ Dies at 85

4 August 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Huddleston, a noted character actor who was most famously known for the titular role in “The Big Lebowski” died Tuesday at 85. His wife, Sarah Koeppe, told the Los Angeles Times that he died of heart and kidney disease in Santa Fe, N.M.

Huddleston’s character in the 1998 “The Big Lebowski” epitomized the types of characters he was known for — big dons or capos and tempestuous men. Although he is in only a few scenes in the film, he crosses paths with Jeff Bridges’ Lebowski character, aka “The Dude,” after a group of gang members attack “The Dude” mistaking him for Huddleston’s millionaire Lebowski. Though the film was not a hit when it first premiered, it has since become a huge cult sensation with a devoted fan base.

Before he was cast as the Big Lebowski, he guest starred on several TV shows, including “Walker Texas Ranger,” “Murder, She »

Stream this in the summer: 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend'

7 July 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In my early days on the beat, NBC had an ad campaign encouraging people to watch summer reruns, promising, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" In the age of Peak TV, that slogan seems less cynical than accurate. The rise of streaming services have put the bulk of TV history only a click or two away, which means that people are constantly discovering The Wire, or Arrested Development, or Terriers (sigh) for the very first time. Since I'm not doing a summer rewind this year, I thought I would, from time to time, offer up a primer of a show you can stream, whether an older series available in full, or a new arrival to one or more of the services. And since the CW just made official its deal to move all its shows' streaming rights from Hulu to Netflix(*), I wanted to start with what's »

How 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' smartly steered into that off-putting name and premise

29 February 2016 10:36 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back in the fall, I said that while I admired individual components of the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend — particularly the musical parody numbers — the show needed to pull a Cougar Town and start distancing itself from its premise and title before it could truly get good. Instead, the situation has turned out to be, to quote the show's theme song (which got a delightful spoken word treatment a few episodes back), a lot more nuanced than that. If anything, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has doubled down on the crazy ex of it all in its portrayal of sad lawyer Rebecca Bunch (star and co-creator Rachel Bloom) and her fixation on summer camp ex Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III) — and it's become a richer, more confident, and more entertaining show than it was at the start.  Some of this is that Bloom and co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna have, as all smart producers of young shows do, »
