NBC has ordered four more scripts of Sean Saves the World. That indicates the network may end up ordering more episodes. I don’t know if I’m cheering for that to happen or not.

Alexis Denisof has joined the MTV drama pilot Finding Carter, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series focuses on a teen girl who learns she was abducted as a child and suddenly finds herself adjusting to live with the family she never knew. Denisof will play her father, a novelist whose only success was a true crime novel based on how he dealt with his daughter being kidnapped. In the meantime, we’re waiting for him to reunite with Angel producer David Greenwalt on Grimm.

Wesley Windham-Prycce, still missed.

Lifetime is looking at adapting The Trip to Bountiful into a movie. This version would star Cicely Tyson and Vanessa Williams, much like the recent Broadway revival of the play. »

The Stage Dive Weekend Review: The Old Friends, Fetch Clay, Make Man, and The Machine

13 September 2013 2:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Old Friends (at the Signature Center through October 6)From beyond the grave, crafty Horton Foote just keeps on evolving: The Old Friends, a companion to Foote’s 1944 Broadway debut, Only the Heart, was begun in the sixties and semi-staged in the eighties. Now doughty Foote soldier Michael Wilson (The Orphan’s Home Cycle, The Trip to Bountiful) has brought the final version to fruition in a sizzling, spitting skillet of a production, where nary a performance is short of deep-fried perfection and every backhanded compliment and drunken indiscretion lands like a javelin in someone’s back. This is the rare show in which Betty Buckley — as vulgar, manipulative, perma-toxicated farming empress Gertrude Ratliff — delivers a perfect monster of a performance, and there’s still room for eight more. Cotter Smith is superbly deployed as Howard Ratliff, brother of Gertrude’s late husband and manager of her estate, kept as »

Adepero Oduye Is Replacing Condola Rashad In 'The Trip to Bountiful'

15 July 2013 11:02 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Last week, when it was announced that the Broadway revival of The Trip to Bountiful, which was initially scheduled for a 14-week limited engagement through July 7, received a second extension to close on October 9, I wondered whether co-star Condola Rashad would be replaced for the latter half of the Bountiful extension, since she's already signed up for another Broadway play - a new adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, with an interracial twist, which will see her play Juliet opposite Orlando Bloom.  That play is set to begin previews on August 24, for a September 19 opening, which would obviously conflict with Rashad's time on »

'The Trip to Bountiful' Gets A Second Extension!

8 July 2013 10:30 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

It obviously must be doing Very well, because the revival of The Trip to Bountiful on Broadway, which was initially scheduled for a 14-week limited engagement running through July 7, and which was already previously extended by 8 weeks, through September 1, 2013, has now received a second extension by another month, to October 9. Congrats to the cast and crew!  Although, Condola Rashad has already signed up for another Broadway play - a new adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, with an interracial twist, which will see her play Juliet opposite Orlando Bloom, making his Broadway debut (although not his stage debut) as Romeo. That play is set to begin »

ICM Partners Signs Cuba Gooding Jr

25 June 2013 9:10 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

ICM Partners has signed Cuba Gooding Jr. No Oscar-winner’s path has been more confounding than that of Gooding. He seemed poised for great things after his performance as the wide receiver opposite Tom Cruise in Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire, followed by his exuberant Oscar acceptance speech. Gooding has been in some decent movies since — Men Of Honor, Pearl Harbor, As Good As It Gets and American Gangster – but it also looked like he went for a lot of easy paydays and squandered his momentum. It also didn’t help that right after all the acclaim Gooding received for his performance as a player who stayed loyal to his sports agent, Gooding ditched his film agent right after, and has bounced like a tennis ball between talent agencies. He comes to ICM from CAA at a time when he has some momentum. He’s currently on Broadway in The Trip To Bountiful »

Cyndi Lauper, Cicely Tyson, and more dish backstage about historic Tony Awards

11 June 2013 3:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Basking in the glow of their victories, this year's freshly-minted Tony Award winners dished with the press about their honored work on Sunday night. What the best part about starring in "The Trip to Bountiful"? "Working," answered Cicely Tyson, who won Best Actress in a Play. "That for me is the joy of this whole business: the work, itself." She also addressed an especially strong year for black actors; eight were nominated and four won, of which she said, "Well, that means there's hope for us still." Tyson is only the third black woman to win Best Actress in a Play, following Phylicia Rashad ("A Raisin in the Sun," 2004) and Viola Davis ("Fences," 2010). It was also a historic year for women: for only the second time in Tony history, two women won awards for directing: Pam MacKinnon for the play "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and Diane Paulus for the »
