Imagine being 25-years-old and asked to do a few voices on a cartoon show called “The Simpsons.”  Up until 1989 you’ve had 4 parts on television including tiny roles on Family Ties and Growing Pains.  But other than that, nothing.  What do you do?  That’s the situation Hank Azaria was in.   Little did he or anyone know that those voices would launch what will probably be a lifelong career filled with opportunity and stability. Today Hank Azaria is 52-years-old and not only is he a zillion voices on The Simpsons but he’s got 92 credits to his name on IMDb

28 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Tony-nominated actor Andrew Rannells projects the confidence of a man who can do it all — but this Sunday, we found out that he can’t jump.

That is, if he’s auditioning for a role in “White Men Can’t Jump: The Musical,” a fictional Broadway musical within the world of “Girls.” It’s an opportunity that represents a real chance for Elijah (Rannells) to ascend to a new level of success, just as everyone else on the show finds themselves growing up.

When it comes to Season 6, Episode 7 of “Girls,” titled “The Bounce,” Rannells was quick to give credit for the hilarious audition sequence to director Richard Shepard and choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall (the latter of whom has been working with the series for years, stretching back to the Season 3 episode “Beach House”).

Blu-ray Review: Deadtime Stories (1986)

1 March 2017 12:48 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

One of the lesser-known horror anthologies of the 1980s, 1986’s Deadtime Stories is a title of which I’ve been familiar for years, but it took me a long time to actually get around to seeing it. And because of the film’s long history of botched home video releases, the versions I’ve been able to watch in the past haven’t been of the best quality. As a result, I had an unfair opinion of the movie. Thankfully, Scream Factory has put Deadtime Stories out on Blu-ray for the first time and allowed me the opportunity not just to revisit it, but to revise my opinion. It’s more fun than I gave it credit for.

The first of the movie’s three segments is “The Black Forest,” the story of two witches who take a young man (Scott Valentine of TV’s Family Ties) as their slave »

'One Day at a Time' Gets a Modern Makeover on Netflix

6 January 2017 3:06 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Growing up in the 1980s, Glora Calderon Kellett was no different from most kids. She loved her TV sitcoms, from Family Ties to The Cosby Show to Happy Days reruns. However, unlike the majority of those kids, she saw these shows as more of a window than a mirror.

“There were no Latino families to watch, nobody who looked like me,” recalls the veteran writer/producer, who has worked on everything from iZombie to How I Met Your Mother. “It’s like Russell Simmons has said, that when he saw George Jefferson writing a check, it opened up his world because he »
