'The Front Page': Theater Review

23 October 2016 2:41 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Editor's note: Due to a dispute with Scott Rudin, lead producer on The Front Page, The Hollywood Reporter's chief theater critic was prevented from attending a preview performance with a purchased ticket, and disinvited to opening night, so this review is appearing later than those of other outlets. Playing Walter Burns, the pugnacious bulldog managing editor of Chicago's Herald-Examiner, Nathan Lane doesn't enter until an hour and 45 minutes into The Front Page. But in a performance that's a master class in the art of the ferocious farceur, Lane causes the energy level to skyrocket and stay aloft throughout

Sarah Paulson Supports Girlfriend Holland Taylor at the Premiere of Her Broadway Show

21 October 2016 7:59 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Just when you think it doesn't seem possible for Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor to look more in love, they go right ahead and do. Sarah supported Holland at the opening night of her Broadway show The Front Page on Thursday in NYC, where they happily posed for photographs together. The couple shared a few laughs and stared deep into each other's eyes in front of the cameras before Holland took the stage. Although the pair tend to keep their relationship fairly private, Sarah gave her girlfriend a shout-out when she took home an Emmy Award for her work in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. Later on, they had an adorable interaction on Twitter, further solidifying themselves as one of 2016's cutest couples.

‘The Front Page’ Broadway Review: John Slattery, Nathan Lane Join a Basketful of Deplorables

20 October 2016 6:47 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Most American dramas from the era have been forgotten, but Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s 1928 press-room comedy “The Front Page” continues to wow audiences. As the new starry revival that opened Thursday at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York occasionally proves, Hecht and MacArthur not only knew how to write a basketful of deplorables. They also forced us to identify with corrupt politicians and tabloid newspaper reporters, whose banter on the eve of a hanging — a suspected Communist has shot a black cop — is about as racist, sexist and homophobic as it gets. At least it was »

19 September 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor didn't attend the Emmys together - they weren't even on the same coast during the broadcast. But, somehow, they still managed to be the cutest couple of the evening. Taylor was in New York City on Emmy night, spending her day in rehearsals for the upcoming Broadway revival of The Front Page, which opens on Tuesday. Paulson didn't attend the night stag - instead, she brought the real-life Marcia Clark, who Paulson was nominated (and won) for portraying in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

The Seven Greatest Director/Actor Combos

4 September 2016 5:47 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Some actors and directors go together like spaghetti and meatballs. They just gel together in a rare way that makes their collaborations special. Here is a list of the seven best parings of director and actor in film history.

 

7: Tim Burton & Johnny Depp:

 Edward Scissorhands; Ed Wood; Sleepy Hollow; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; Corpse Bride; Sweeney Todd; Alice in Wonderland; Dark Shadows

 Of all the parings on this list, these two make the oddest films. (In a good way.) Tim Burton is one of the most visually imaginative filmmakers of his generation and Johnny Depp was once the polymorphous master of playing a wide variety of eccentric characters. They were a natural combo. Depp made most of his best films with Burton, before his current ‘Jack Sparrow’ period began. The duo had the knack for telling stories about misfits and freaks, yet making them seem sympathetic and likable. »

The Top Ten Funny Ladies of the Movies

7 August 2016 10:29 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The recent box office success of The Boss firmly establishes Melissa McCarthy as the current queen of movie comedies (Amy Schumer could be a new contender after an impressive debut last Summer with Trainwreck), but let us think back about those other funny ladies of filmdom. So while we’re enjoying the female reboot/re-imagining of Ghostbusters and those Bad Moms, here’s a top ten list that will hopefully inspire lots of laughter and cause you to search out some classic comedies. It’s tough to narrow them down to ten, but we’ll do our best, beginning with… 10. Eve Arden The droll Ms. Arden represents the comic sidekicks who will attempt to puncture the pomposity of the leading ladies with a well-placed wisecrack (see also the great Thelma Ritter in Rear Window). Her career began in the early 1930’s with great bit roles in Stage Door and Dancing Lady. »
