Now That Elisabeth Moss Is Back in Your Life, Here Are 6 Things You Never Knew About Her

4 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Rich Fury With the premiere of Hulu's timely new series The Handmaid's Tale this week, star Elisabeth Moss is about to be back in your mind, and not just on your TV. Elisabeth might be best known for her portrayal of '60s career badass Peggy Olson on Mad Men, but she's one of those actors who has always kind of flown under the radar. With her profile rising and a buzzy new show, we figured it was high time to talk about how fascinating she actually is. She's TV's most famous first daughter. You may see Elisabeth and think Peggy, but her big break was on another TV show. She played The West Wing's Zoey Bartlet, daughter of the president, from 1999 to 2006. Other notable roles from her early years? She guested on a 2007 episode of Grey's Anatomy and played a young Ashley Judd in the »

‘SNL’ Lines Up Katy Perry, Haim, and LCD Soundsystem as Musical Guests

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Saturday Night Live” announced its May line-up of musical guests on Wednesday: LCD Soundsystem, Haim, and Katy Perry.

LCD Soundsystem will kick things off on May 6, which also sees Chris Pine, who stars in the upcoming “Wonder Woman” alongside Gal Gadot, hosting. Next up is Haim on May 13, with host Melissa McCarthy — who will no doubt reprise her popular Sean Spicer impression. Perry will be “Chained to the Rhythm” on the May 20, alongside host Dwayne Johnson.

The hosts were previously announced last month, when NBC revealed that it would be airing the last four episodes of the season live from coast-to-coast for the first time.

The three musical guests have one key factor in common: their fans have all been long awaiting their next albums, none of which yet have release dates. LCD Soundsystem split up to much fanfare in 2011, and got back together last year, debuting three new songs at Brooklyn Steel in New York earlier »

Jonathan Demme’s Last Project, ‘Shots Fired,’ Airs Tonight — Remembering His Best TV Work

11 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jonathan Demme’s films, including “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Philadelphia,” won Oscars, earned worldwide acclaim, and influenced countless filmmakers. But his efforts on the small screen were anything but small in comparison. Over the course of nearly 40 years in TV, Demme directed, wrote, and produced an impressive array of genres and worked with artists like Laura Dern, Peter Falk, Elliot Gould, Patrick Wilson, Aisha Hinds, and Helen Hunt.

Demme died Wednesday morning in New York at the age of 73. The cause was esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease, according to a source close to the family. He was originally treated for the disease in 2010, but suffered from a recurrence in 2015, and his condition deteriorated in recent weeks.

Adam Sandler And Chris Rock Prepare For Netflix Nuptials In The Week Of

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s a curious thing, this multi-project, recently extended Adam Sandler-Netflix deal. The fact that the comedian has made a choice to move his schtick from theatres to a streaming platform might suggest an awareness of its dwindling appeal as traditional releases. Signing up to create Netflix Originals means Sandler can continue to turn a profit by churning out what is essentially the same content, over and over again. For its part, Netflix gets to work with one of the most recognizable names in film, and can use this content as part of its very clear push to cater for as wide a range of viewers as possible. So, the streaming channel is now announcing the latest movie to form part of this deal – and it’s called The Week Of.

The film be directed by Robert Smigel (Saturday Night Live), from a script he co-wrote with Adam Sandler. »

China’s Youku to Make Local Version of ‘Saturday Night Live’

18 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chinese streaming giant Youku is to produce a localized version of “Saturday Night Live,” following an agreement with NBCUniversal. The show is expected to be one of the flagship programs for Youku’s fall-winter entertainment lineup.

The Youku show will be the 10th local iteration of the iconic “SNL,” after international versions in places such as France, the Middle East and Finland. On NBC in the U.S., the show has played for more than 40 years, with more than 800 episodes aired to date, and has re-entered the national conversation with Alec Baldwin’s lacerating impersonation of President Trump.

Lorne Michaels has created a timeless format that taps into the prevailing cultural zeitgeist and instantaneously responds with whip-smart humor to national affairs and social trends,” said Michael Edelstein, President, NBCUniversal International Studios.

Comedy is a popular genre on Chinese television, but current affairs can be a sensitive area, and many producers tend to self-censor in order to avoid »

If John Legend's Goal Was to Convince Us He's Husband of the Year, Mission Accomplished

23 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Chrissy Teigen pulled double duty in NYC on Wednesday, popping up at two high-profile events. She first attended the annual City Harvest Gala before heading over to the Time 100 Gala to watch husband John Legend perform. The R&B crooner hit the red carpet solo, and despite being named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People this year, he told Et that someone else deserves the prize. "My wife [is the most influential person in my life]," he gushed. "We spend a lot of time together, we know each other really well, we get along pretty well too, she's very influential. She makes me cooler than I would be normally." Of course, being a supportive husband isn't anything new for him. John has publicly supported Chrissy during her recent battle with postpartum depression. "I'm just doing what a husband's supposed to do," he said. "You shouldn't get an award for that, just doing my job." Related5 John Legend Songs »

Blake Lively Better Watch Out, Because Leslie Jones Is Coming For Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds may have hit the red carpet with Blake Lively and his mom, Tammy, at this year's Time 100 Gala in NYC on Tuesday, but once he made it inside, Leslie Jones appeared to be on a mission to catch his attention. Not only did the Saturday Night Live star run over to him and Blake, but once they noticed her, she made sure to seize the moment. In addition to taking a few photos together, Leslie lovingly placed her hand on Ryan's chest during their conversation before leaning in for a tight hug. Luckily for her, neither Ryan nor Blake seemed to mind, though we can't help but wonder how Michael Che and Colin Jost would feel about this.
