The ’90s were sort of weird. Everyone’s clothes were too big for them, and there was a lot of sincerity going around. It was also a time when some of today’s biggest stars weren’t such big stars yet, and randomly appeared on some of your favorite TV shows. Whether it was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo or the dominating story arc of an entire episode, everyone from a young Ryan Reynolds to Yoko Ono made a guest appearance on shows as disparate as The X-Files and Mad About You.
If you want to find out which basketball star showed up to face-off against Uncle Jesse on Full House, or which iconic musical powerhouse appeared on Smart Guy, you’ll need to click through our gallery. Take a trip down memory lane with ’90s cameos from Coolio, Britney Spears, and even Nancy Kerrigan. There are some you might remember, »

As their friend and wedding planner, Lane spends the episode managing a series of crises as the wedding party moves from venue to venue – an approaching wildfire, the arrival of another wedding party, a dwindling string quartet, a car full of butterflies, and the cramped con...' »
Red Oaks seems like it could definitely be my type of jam. A comedy set in 1985 at a country club in New Jersey? This has enough shades of Caddyshack to pique my interest. Of course it doesn't hurt that the show will be produced by Steven Soderbergh or that the pilot will be directed by David Gordon Green (Eastbound & Down). Red Oaks is gearing up to shoot as a pilot for Amazon (who are still implementing their voting policy when it comes to determining what gets picked up to series). And now the cast has been announced. Red Oaks stars Craig Roberts (Submarine) as David Myers, a college student who’s an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985. Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Oliver Cooper (Californication), Gage Golightly (MTV’s Teen Wolf) and »

Clearly, “retirement” means something else in Soderberghland.
Though the Academy Award-winning director has stuck to his promise to stop directing feature films since 2012 (when he shot Behind the Candelabra), Soderbergh has hardly stopped making art in the intervening years. Recent projects include directing Cinemax’s 10-episode period drama The Knick (premiering this summer), helming an Off-Broadway play starring Chloe Grace Moretz, editing together a mashup of Hitchcock’s Psycho and Gus Van Sant’s Psycho, executive producing a TV series based on his 2009 indie film The Girlfriend Experience for Starz—and, now, overseeing another TV show, this time for Amazon. »

Fabulous over fifty! Helen Hunt hit the beach in Maui, Hawaii this week, and at the age of 51, she looks better than ever. The Oscar-winning actress took in the Hawaiian sun in a striped bikini, offering a peek at her fit figure. Getting into vacation mode with her hair beachy and her face makeup-free, Hunt chose a triangle-cut black-and-white striped top, and blue-and-white striped bottoms. The Mad About You star later tried on a white rashguard, embellished with a print of a palm tree, for a little surfing [...] »
Ever since she sauntered down that street in the morning light in 1983, Cyndi Lauper has been a part of the pop culture landscape. Did you you know she’s 3/4 to an Egot? With an Emmy for Mad About You, a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1984, and a Tony Award last year for Kinky Boots, all she needs is an Oscar to compete the showbiz Holy Grail.
Here’s one of her crowning moments last year, as she became the first solo woman in Tony history to win for Best Original Score.
Always an ally, she’s one of the gay community’s staunchest supporters, and in another of her crowning moments, was responsible for reuniting a Daytime TV Supercouple. She even got Noah to dance … albeit like Frankenstein swatting at a bee … but is there anything this woman can’t do?
Today is Cyndi’s 61st birthday, so what »
IFC Films has acquired the U.S. rights to writer/director Victor Levin's debut film, the heartfelt romance "5 to 7," which premiered at this year's Tribeca Film Festival to mixed reviews. "Sumptuous and romantic in an attractively old-fashioned way," wrote The Hollywood Reporter. "Sappy and painfully jejune," wrote The Playlist. In "5 to 7," an aspiring young writer named Brian, played by Anton Yelchin ("Like Crazy") meets Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), a French diplomat's wife, outside of the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan. The two begin a passionate May-December love affair, and Brian begins to yearn for more than just the hours of five to seven to spend with his new beloved. Frank Langella and Glenn Close also star as Brian's parents. Levin, a TV and film writer, has worked as a co-executive producer on "Mad Men," as show runner of "Mad About You" (for which he shared a Golden Globe) and as »

According to an excerpt from a new "tell-all" book written by Dave Berg, a former producer of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, the show had a backstage bar cart called "The Jay Bar" to loosen up guests:To help with stage fright, Leno came up with the idea of The Jay Bar, a mobile station loaded with beer and wine to help guests unwind before the show. But some guests didn’t know when to turn off the spigot. In 2003, Quentin Tarantino hit The Jay Bar so hard that he was slurring and “occasionally incoherent” on air. Other good gossip? Teri Hatcher and Christian Bale are "difficult," Helen Hunt stayed away from the show for 14 years after a producer ribbed her performance on Mad About You, and when Dave Letterman scored the first post-prison Martha Stewart interview, Leno tried to preempt his Benjamin Bratt lead interview with an animal trainer. »

It’s official! The Comeback will return to HBO this fall for a six-episode run. “In the new episodes, HBO said, Valerie will continue her search to attain the spotlight, but this time around it illuminates a whole new series of problems when she achieves the visibility she wants.”
Notre Dame sends a message of support.
In case you missed The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this weekend, here’s the post-credits X-Men teaser, featuring Mystique, Toad, Havoc, that one mutant, and that other mutant.
Aspiring novelist Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin) receives nothing but rejection letters from publishers, but when it comes to romance, he has considerably better luck, earning coy encouragement from Arielle (Berenice Marlohe), a beautiful French woman he spies smoking on a New York sidewalk. There’s just one catch: She’s married, and the couple can only meet between the hours of 5 and 7, which isn’t nearly enough to satisfy this smitten scribbler. Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin’s refreshingly articulate “5 to 7” delivers romance of the sort thought lost since the days of Audrey Hepburn, for those who appreciate such finery. And who doesn’t?
Truth be told, the times are startlingly harsh for stories designed to make audiences actually feel something, and “5 to 7” risks ridicule from those who can’t abide Levin’s earnest, heart-on-his-sleeve approach. Like his naive 24-year-old protagonist, Levin would rather crash and »

On the list of things I originally expected from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, emotional resonance isn’t to be found. With a former Saturday Night Live cast member as the lead, I figured the show would be goofy (in a good way) and peppered with cameos from comedians. While these expectations were met early in the first season, the thing I’ve come to like most about the show is the slowly developing romantic storyline between Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero). But as much as I’ve enjoyed the pining these characters both think is unrequited, I keep reminding myself not to get my hopes up too much about the future of this storyline since sitcom love rarely flourishes in an enjoyable way.
I’m not sure there’s a single narrative show on TV that doesn’t have at least one romantic storyline, but »

Chicago – The story of a Chicago-based woman – who died in 2009 at age 83 – has become the subject of a remarkable new documentary. “Finding Vivian Maier” is a film about revelation, and was created by co-directors John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, with the support of Executive Producer and comedian Jeff Garlin.
The tale of Vivian Maier seems impossible. It began after her death with an auction of her storage locker, which contained negatives of her street photographer’s life – from the 1950s through the ‘90s. One of the directors of the film, John Maloof, stumbled onto her treasure by purchasing a box of these negatives. He then became her archivist, cataloging her photos, films, audio recordings and even material possessions, to reveal an artist of unique magnitude. “Finding Vivian Maier” is Maloof’s story, Vivian’s journey and the story of an artist’s life that easily could have been lost with her demise. »
