The Epilogues You Need For Making a Murderer, The Jinx, and Serial

27 January 2016 10:30 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The surge in true crime entertainment has been at an all-time high lately thanks to excellent documentary-style television shows like Making a Murderer and The Jinx, not to mention the podcast Serial. These shows are just as addictive and thrilling as any fictional procedural, and even more seamlessly and glossily produced. The biggest difference, however, is that while the crimes on Law and Order: Svu and CSI are neatly tied up by the end of their primetime slots, the events surrounding the Steven Avery and Robert Durst cases are much more complex and can sometimes go on for years. It's easy to forget that what's happening on screen in shows like these actually happened to real people, not actors, and that their lives have been irrevocably affected by the aftermath. While some may argue that TV like this dangerously blurs the line between real-life horror and entertainment, there have »

Abe Vigoda, 'Godfather' and 'Barney Miller' Star, Dies at 94

26 January 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Abe Vigoda, a veteran character actor best known for roles in "The Godfather" and sitcom "Barney Miller," has died. He was 94.

Vigoda, who passed away in New Jersey of natural causes, became known for his signature hangdog appearance, and was the repeated target of death hoaxes frequently touting his demise. That odd occurrence became a running joke throughout the latter half of his career.

The then-middle-aged actor was all but unknown when he landed the role of Tessio in 1972's "The Godfather," a part he reprised as part of a flashback in "The Godfather Part II" in 1974. He went on to appear in film such as "The Don Is Dead," "Newman's Law," "The Cheap Detective," "Joe Versus the Volcano," and "Jury Duty."

But television took up much of the rest of Vigoda's career, where he shone as always-on-the-verge-of-retiring Detective Phil Fish on beloved comedy series "Barney Miller." The character »

Abe Vigoda, ‘Barney Miller’ and ‘Godfather’ Actor, Dies at 94

26 January 2016 11:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor Abe Vigoda, best known for his roles as mobster Tessio in “The Godfather” and as Detective Sgt. Fish in TV’s “Barney Miller” and a spinoff series in which he starred, has died. He was 94 and died in New Jersey of natural causes, his daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs told the Associated Press.

The tall character actor with the characteristically slouched shoulders and hangdog face became something of a pop culture figure due to repeated false reports of his demise, which became the subject of jokes. Reflecting his somewhat odd celebrity was the existence of a punk rock band named Abe Vigoda; his recurring appearances in the late 2000s on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”; and the existence of a website named Isabevigodadead.com, which for years consisted simply of a blank page with the word No.

Dick Wolf Lends Support to Police, Talks Weaving Cop Controversy and Diversity Into ‘Chicago’ Franchise

13 January 2016 4:21 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“I think SAG should accept the fact that this is one giant ensemble and let them all run as a unit,” Dick Wolf said Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour, referring to his triple threat “Chicago” franchise. The three NBC series just wrapped up a successful crossover last week and will be part of a four-way crossover next month, along with Wolf’s “Law & Order: Svu.”

Asked by a reporter if he thinks he’ll be successful in his request, with a laugh, Wolf said, “probably not.” Regardless of SAG’s ruling, one thing is certain: the “Chicago” shows are huge hits — and they’re growing.

As first reported by Variety ahead of Wolf’s panel at TCA, a fourth “Chicago” installment, “Chicago Law,” is being discussed at NBC.

During the “Chicago” panel, Wolf offered up a few more details on the potential legal drama. “It would be »

Til Schweiger Comes In Bullets Blazing In Nick: Off Duty

13 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

How big a star is Til Schweiger in his native Germany? Well, how's this for an indicator: After appearing in just four episodes of long running German cop show Tatort - a series that has been more or less in continuous production since 1970 - the Inglorious Basterds support player has gone and landed himself a spinoff movie of his own. To put it in context that'd be like taking a four episode character from Law And Order and giving them their own film. Titled Tschiller: Off Duty in Germany - and apparently Nick: Off Duty everywhere else, because that title is going to inspire people to seek it out - Antibodies and Pandorum director Christian Alvart directs.Tough Hamburg cop Nick Tschiller lost his wife...

6 Things New To Netflix This Week (Jan 11)

11 January 2016 12:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

NBC

After a storming month in December, many predicted a drop in quality new offerings from Netflix in January. Those people need to be gently slapped around the face with a wet fish and made to sit in the corner.

If you’re looking for a good reason to dodge the dumbbells (at the gym), put your mind to some problem-solving or learn a thing or two about history, then you’ve come to the right place.

This week on Netflix, you’ve got the return of the world’s greatest detective with the answer to the biggest cliffhanger on British TV, and Bill Murray stepping out as the President of the United States. Prefer your programmes more debauched, and slightly murderous? Like your comedy quite American and a bit park-based? They’ve got that too.

And if Will Ferrell is your go-to guy for a fun, dumb movies or »

Four Men and a Prayer

9 January 2016 12:42 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It's the John Ford film you never heard of, not because it's bad, but because it's a little confused. Richard Greene, David Niven and an emotional George Sanders (!) dedicate their lives to clearing their father's name of a smear by international arms smugglers! Their spirited companion Loretta Young behaves almost as if this were a screwball comedy. So does the director! Ford aficionados will be fascinated. Four Men and a Prayer 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives 1938 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 85 min. / Street Date December 15, 2015 / 19.98 Starring Loretta Young, Richard Greene, George Sanders, David Niven, C. Aubrey Smith. J. Edward Bromberg, William Henry, John Carradine, Alan Hale, Reginald Denny, Berton Churchill, Barry Fitzgerald, Chris-Pin Martin. Cinematography Franz Planer Film Editor Louis R. Loeffler Written by Richard Sherman, Sonya Levien, Walter Ferris from a novel by David Garth Produced by Kenneth Macgowan Directed by John Ford

Shades of Blue's Dayo Okeniyi Spills on Working and (Partying!) with 'Amazing' Costar J.Lo

7 January 2016 6:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Dayo Okeniyi's first big audition was for a little project called The Hunger Games. And ever since he landed the role of strong but silent tribute Thresh, his career hasn't stopped soaring, skyrocketing him out of Panem and straight into the sci-fi future of Terminator Genisys. Between blockbusters, Okeniyi, 27, landed a part as a by-the-book rookie cop pulled into a law enforcement scandal in Shades of Blue, NBC's new Jennifer Lopez drama. "It was amazing, because to be honest, I was nervous about it initially, just getting on a show with her," he tells People of Lopez, who also developed and produces the series. »
