'Young Sheldon': TV Review

23 September 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The Muppet Babies, the animated series that has become generational shorthand for taking beloved characters and arbitrarily aging them down for cutesy reasons, was not a prequel. It existed outside of the continuity of The Muppet Movie and The Muppet Show and just placed Kermit, Piggy, Animal and the gang in a youthful context because it was adorable; it never claimed that the events taking place in the nursery were going to shape the adult versions of the characters. For that reason, The Muppet Babies is often mocked for its lowest-common-denominator brand opportunism.

Joel Schiller, the respected production designer and art director known for his work on such films as Rosemary's Baby, Murphy's Romance and The Muppet Movie, has died. He was 86.

Schiller died Jan. 17 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his friend of 40 years, Al Heintzelman, told The Hollywood Reporter. His death had not been previously reported.

A skilled painter who studied with John Groth and William de Kooning, Schiller served as assistant production designer under the legendary Richard Sylbert on The Graduate (1967), where he created the conceptual fish-bowl environment for Dustin Hoffman's Benjamin Braddock.

Paul Williams on His ‘Baby Driver’ Cameo, Being Ascap President and Having a Song Covered by Elvis

7 July 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over the course of a unique career that stretches back to the 1960s, Paul Williams has been and is a songwriter, singer, actor, a recovering alcoholic and recovery advocate, and not least the president/chairman of Ascap, a role he’s held since 2009 and for which he was recently elected to a fifth term.

He’s also enjoyed, as he puts it, a truly remarkable “third act” in his career, which includes winning a Grammy in 2014 for his work on Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” and, most recently, a brief and memorable cameo as a corrupt cop/illegal arms dealer (Spoiler Alert: who is quickly shot by Jamie Foxx’s character) in “Baby Driver.” The role is startling to anyone who knows him and doesn’t know it’s coming, not only because the diminutive Williams is apparently portraying the most well-dressed, erudite and loquacious corrupt cop/illegal arms dealer in history, but »

George Clooney's latest Nespresso ad is here!

The 56-year-old actor, who's represented the Swiss brand internationally since 2006, stars in yet another one of the coffee company's commercials as part of their Comin' Home campaign. This time, he's focused on the importance of recycling.

Watch:George Clooney and Rande Gerber Sell Casamigos Tequila Company for $1 Billion

In the new ad, Clooney walks to a recycling area, where he runs into fellow actor Andy Garcia, who's also recycling his Nespresso capsules. The ad reveals they're 100% recyclable, which Clooney described while exclusively chatting with Et about the project.

"I think generations are changing and generations today are more aware and understand the fact that we can't keep creating giant piles of trash and leaving it for the next generation to deal with," he explained. "The nice thing is that this generation of people who use the Nespresso machines and capsules, I believe, understand that we're »

Not all of these movies ended up as critically-acclaimed award winners, but frankly, we love them anyway. There’s just something sweetly nostalgic about seeing a TV show you loved when you were younger, or even an older TV show that you missed out on, reimagined for the movie screen.

Legion Recap: White Noise

8 March 2017 8:10 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Legion recap here.

We’re more than halfway through this first season of Legion now, and we’re starting to understand how David’s mutant mind works (and doesn’t work). But this week’s episode threw a few new curveballs at us… including a truly Wtf moment at the end that threatened to take us all the way back to square one.

David and Syd bring a wounded Kerry back to Summerland so Cary can patch up his bodymate. And David has a newfound confidence — you could even call it arrogance — after rescuing Syd. »
