Rory O’Malley says he doesn’t worry about being typecast in gay roles. “I definitely don’t get leery about being typecast. I just love being cast… I love playing gay characters. I think it’s fantastic that there have been these rich gay characters for me to do… They’re fully-formed people, with points of view, and something different to bring to the story.”
HBO is developing a series on the club scene in South Beach called Club Life: Miami from producers John Singleton and Russell Simmons. Based on the locale and the involvement of Simmons, I think it’s safe to say we can expect some gay content if it goes to series.

J.J. Abrams' Lance Armstrong biopic is entering its next leg, with Deadline reporting that the movie will be written by High Fidelity's D. V. DeVincentis and based on journalist Juliet Macur's book, Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong.

Instead of braving the Black Friday brawls, sit back and relax with even more TV marathons. (That’s what Cyber Monday is for, isn’t it?) Standouts include complete(-ish) sets of favorite franchises such as Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, and Star Trek, as well as guilty-pleasure reality series like House Hunters International and Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta.

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the Golden Globe Award nominations through December 12th, when the nominations are announced. Oprah vs. Lupita? That seems like the potential showdown both here and at the Oscars, though Winfrey is probably even more of a sure bet with the Globes given their love for celebrities (even if she loses at the Oscars, she could win here. Though watch out for Jennifer Lawrence ("American Hustle"), June Squibb ("Nebraska"), Octavia Spencer ("Fruitvale Station") and "August: Osage County" pair Julia Roberts (though I'm not including her here because I suspect she'll get a lead nom at the Globes) and Margo Martindale. One thing we can count out is Scarlett Johannson's voice only performance in "Her," which has been deemed ineligible for the Globes (and remains an eligible -- but consider longshot -- at the Oscars). Best supporting actress predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the. »

The New York Times is feeding prominent actors some unusual lines. The eminent newspaper has release Making A Scene, a web series featuring some of the year's most notable performers. Making A Scene consists of 11 shorts, each one starring a different actor. The three released to YouTube spotlight Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, and Oprah (who all had brilliant on-screen moments in 2013), and the New York Times website is home to further shorts starring everyone from Bradley Cooper to Adele Exarchopolous to Chiwetel Ejiofor. Each short features just one line, and each line was penned by further Hollywood talent, including Spike Jonze, Ethan Hawke, and Seth Rogen. The whole puzzle is tied together by Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kamiński, who is best known for his work on literally every Steven Spielberg film of the past 20 years. So with all of that talent in place, the shorts have to be good, right? Well, »

By far the coolest thing on the internet was the New York Times' Making a Scene project, in which 11 of the year's most celebrated actors -- ranging from Cate Blanchett to Oprah Winfrey, Adele Exarchopoulos to Robert Redford -- perform in individual short films directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer (and Steven Spielberg's right-hand man) Janusz Kaminski. "Short" is the operative word: advertisement-like in length and style, they're not exactly deep, but they're a lot of fun, whether it's Oprah channelling her inner torch diva or Bradley Cooper doing some rain ballet, all to stray strands of dialogue from the likes of »

In her last major role, Oprah Winfrey played against type as an alcoholic, adulterous housewife in The Butler. Winfrey will continue to show an edgier side with her most recently announced project, a Diablo Cody-created HBO comedy inspired by a book called Moody Bitches. The full title of psychiatrist Julie Holland's upcoming book is Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sex You're Not Having, The Sleep You're Missing and What's Really Making You Crazy. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Holland's book "explores the pros and cons of the drugs people are being offered, as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies." We will be very interested to see what comes of the partnership between Cody and Oprah.

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 86th Academy Award nominations through January 16th, 2014, when the nominations are announced. Oprah vs. Lupita? That seems like the potential showdown here, though watch out for June Squibb ("Nebraska"), Octavia Spencer ("Fruitvale Station") and "August: Osage County" pair Julia Roberts (category fraud, much?) and Margo Martindale. Those seem like the final six, unless of course Jennifer Lawrence ("American Hustle") skyrockets when the film gets seen, which could very well be the case. And then there's Scarlett Johannson's voice only performance in "Her," which is a long shot considering the Academy's history with not nominating voice work, but something to consider. It also is notable that this race could very likely feature the first instance in Oscar history of three black nominees, and if Lupita Nyong'o, Oprah Winfrey or Octavia Spencer win -- which seems like a reasonable suggestion -- it would »

If you were to tell me that you saw this collaboration coming, between Diablo Cody and Oprah Winfrey, I would have called you a damned liar. Yet, here we are and these two ladies are working together to adapt Dr. Julie Holland's upcoming book Moody Bitches for the small screen over at HBO. Cody will pen the pilot and then exec produce the show along with Oprah and her company Harpo Films. The book, which has not yet been released, goes under the full title Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, The Sex You're Not Having, The Sleep You're Missing and What's Really Making You Crazy and explores the pros and cons of the drugs we are being offered. I don't know if those are...

The syndication biz wrote off Katie Couric’s Disney-distributed daytime talkshow strip even before it finished its first season this past spring.
Now the one-time morning show superstar is also heading for the exit at ABC News, negotiating an early end to the “special correspondent” deal that accompanied her talkshow pact in 2011. Couric is poised to shift to a programming deal with Yahoo, which will keep her visible in media circles but nonetheless marks a remarkable fall from grace for the anchor who was once at the top of the TV journo pack. She joined the Disney-abc fold in mid-2011 after a tumultuous tenure as the anchor of the “CBS Evening News.”
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of Couric’s negotiations with Yahoo on Friday. ABC News insiders tried to put the best face on the transition, but it is no secret that Couric had a tough time »

On Thursday, Riff Raff debuted his new show on Complex TV, called “The Riff Raff Realm.” We were so intrigued — at one point, Riff can be seen sniffing shoes on camera — that we got him on the phone to discuss his new show, his upcoming album, and why America might be seeing him on their TVs soon.
EW: Hey, Riff — how’s it going?
Riff Raff: [from his car, in Arizona] Hey, what’s up man. I might go to Taco Bell, get a chalupa or something. What’s up?
