'The Americans' Recap: Going Up the Country

14 May 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The Americans wouldn't have made it past its first season if we got the answers to all our burning questions right away: Will Paige and Henry find out Mom and Dad are about as American as apple sharlotka? Whose side is Nina actually on? Is Stan ever going to catch a break? Who killed Emmett and Leanne? And, no, sorry – none of those plot lines even come close to resolution in the penultimate episode of Season Two. But, all good showrunners need to throw their loyal fan base a bone every now and then, »

Exclusive: 'Killer Of Sheep' Star Henry G. Sanders Will Play Cager Lee In Ava DuVernay's 'Selma'

1 May 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I sadly can't say that I've kept fully abreast of Henry G. Sanders' acting career, since his star-turn in Charles Burnett's 1979 magnum opus Killer Of Sheep; But, a glance at his IMDb resume informs me that he's certainly been busy over the the years, albeit in what would be described as *bit* parts in TV and film projects - small screen classics like Hill Street Blues, Diff'rent Strokes, Murder, She Wrote, Miami Vice, Cagney & Lacey, Matlock, L.A. Law, and Grey's Anatomy, most recently, and on the big screen in Bull Durham, the American remake of Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless, and, just last year, the Jackie Robinson bio 42. He often played unnamed stock characters »

'Parks and Recreation' finale to feature First Lady Michelle Obama

27 February 2014 1:07 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight at 8:30 Eastern, "Parks and Recreation" airs its first new episode since the Olympics, as well as the first new episode since Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe left the cast. It's terrific — the best one they've done since the season premiere — and I'll have a review of it up after it ends on the East Coast. And though Chris Traeger may be gone from Pawnee, the show just landed literally its most famous guest star ever, as it was announced that First Lady Michelle Obama will cameo in the season finale. Her scene in the episode, titled "Moving Up," was, according to NBC, "filmed in late February in Miami where she celebrated investments in healthier out-of-school programs as part of her 'Let’s Move' initiative dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity." "Parks" has previously welcomed Vice-President Joe Biden (aka Leslie's top celebrity sex crush) and  Senators John McCain, »
