Comedy Central Set to Roast Rob Lowe

9 June 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

First there was Charlie Sheen. Then there was Justin Bieber. Now, Comedy Central has tapped veteran actor Rob Lowe as its next network "roastee." The Viacom-owned network is set to tape the special in Los Angeles and air it later this year. There's no word yet on a roastmaster, nor is there a sense of who will come forward to poke fun at the actor whose career began as a teen heartthrob in such movies as The Outsiders and St. Elmo's Fire. In the decades since, he's starred in such TV series as The West Wing, Brothers &

John Travolta and Rob Lowe on Comedy, Favorite Roles and the Secret of their Long Careers

1 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When John Travolta sat down with Rob Lowe at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” studio, they bonded immediately. It wasn’t just about their impressively long careers, though they did swap tales about the pitfalls they’ve faced throughout. Or their ability to transition from television to film and back again. But Lowe stunned Travolta (and the audience) with his tale of being disappointed at missing out on the role of Christian Troy in “Nip/Tuck” — and confronting Ryan Murphy. When he finally met the producer, Lowe said Murphy told him, “Rob, don’t you know I wrote that part for you?” But the script never made its way to the actor, because, as Lowe recalled, Murphy was “not Ryan Murphy yet,” he said. “Isn’t that a great Hollywood story?”

Review: 'The Americans' just aired its best episode ever

4 May 2016 8:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's The Americans coming up just as soon as I take my antibiotic and a nap... "It's never been this bad. It's worse every day." -Gabriel When Alias revealed that Sydney Bristow had been missing in action for two years, or when Battlestar Galactica leaped forward a year in mid-scene, the idea of a huge time jump was still shocking. Over a decade later — after shows as diverse as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Hannibal, Parks and Recreation, Masters of Sex, and Catastrophe have skipped ahead either between seasons or during them — the idea is just another commonly-accepted tool in any showrunner's tool kit, so that fans often predict their favorite series will use it as the only way out of a current story arc. The device has become so familiar, in fact, that where once it dropped jaws, it now risks eliciting shrugs. What makes the seven-month time »

Francis Ford Coppola Says He's Put Together A Longer Cut Of 'The Cotton Club'

28 April 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While "The Cotton Club" might not be the most celebrated film in Francis Ford Coppola's oeuvre, the film still boasts extravagant (and Oscar nominated) art direction and set decoration that's worth a look, along with a big role that allowed Gregory Hines to shine. But it seems there's even more and the director, who has previously expanded "Apocalypse Now" and "The Outsiders," has gone back and put together a longer cut of his 1984 film. Read More: Watch: Francis Ford Coppola Explains His "Live Cinema" Project 'Distant Vision' And More In 57-Minute Talk At the time, "The Cotton Club" had a troubled production, going over budget and behind schedule, with producer Robert Evans (who was originally attached to direct) and Coppola trading barbs about who to blame for film's commercial and financial failure. But now that decades have passed, the director has discovered there was a lot of »
