Watch: First Trailer For 'The World Made Straight' With Noah Wyle, Minka Kelly, Jeremy Irvine, Adelaide Clemens & More

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The first trailer for “The World Made Straight” has landed, and it has some surprises for anyone who hasn’t been tracking the film. We also think it promises great soundtrack elements for those of you in love with bluegrass music. (Folk singer-songwriter Steve Earle, who most recently contributed music to an episode of “True Detective,” appears on-screen in the film and sings the opening song in the trailer.) Set in Appalachia and based on the novel by Ron Rash, the film follows a troubled young man trying to escape his hometown’s long history of violence, which dates back to a Civil War massacre. The surprises we’re talking about come mainly in the form of casting. That thin, bearded guy with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and a pistol in his hand—can you place the face? Yes, you guessed correctly, and don’t worry, it took us a moment, »

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

StreamFix: Pixar favorites, 'Kingpin,' more streaming gems

18 November 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

StreamFix is your weekly update on the best and weirdest streams happening on Netflix, Crackle, Amazon, and Hulu. You dig it? Check out these happenin' spectacles now.  Netflix "Kingpin" This is just a reminder that Bill Murray was up to some weird stuff in the middle to late '90s. "Kingpin" is raucous and watchable, but God, remember "Larger Than Life"? Elephant humor, folks! What about "The Man Who Knew Too Little"? Or "Wild Things"? Or -- oh yes -- "Space Jam"? Thank God he gave us "Rushmore" because that filmography was getting grim.  "Babes in Toyland" I command you to embrace the holiday spirit and revisit this 1961 classic with Ray Bolger and Annette Funicello. No, it's not the Laurel and Hardy version, but it features Ann Jillian of the perfect '80s sitcom "It's a Living" as Bo Peep.  "Doug Benson: Doug Dynasty" And now, ladies and gentlemen, my »

Don’t Get Too Attached to NBC’s State of Affairs

17 November 2014 3:05 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The heroine of State of Affairs, Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl), is the Best at What She Does. That job happens to be analyzing security threats against the United States of America and recommending possible responses in her daily briefing to the president, played by Alfre Woodard (who is unparalleled at projecting super competence without having much of a character to play). Charleston is also Troubled because she lost her fiancé, a special forces soldier, in Afghanistan a year ago and has been drinking and screwing her way toward oblivion ever since. This NBC series, which debuts tonight at 10 p.m., of course wants you to wonder if she will rise to meet whatever occasion happens to appear before her, or get pulled down into a vortex of debauchery. She's basically George Clooney's character on ER, but in the White House and with presidential briefing papers instead of scalpels or something, »

Some Actors Could Make the Difficult Transition from TV Actor to Oscar Nominee

17 November 2014 11:44 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The transition from television star to cinematic award-winner is often difficult. Where actors in feature films tend to be regarded as prestigious, the actors you catch on a television show every week become almost like friends and are more relatable. This personal appeal can hinder prospective Oscar chances, as TV actors are denigrated as being less-than qualified for the statues than their featured peers.

Some 21st century exceptions to the rule include George Clooney, who rose to fame as Dr. Doug Ross on NBC’s ER, is now a two-time Oscar winner, one for his supporting role in 2005’s Syriana and the other for best picture for 2012’s Argo; Jennifer Lawrence, who starred as the oldest daughter on The Bill Engvall Show before it ended in 2009, is now a three-time Oscar nominee, winning once for her lead role in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook; Melissa Leo, »

Maura Tierney on The Affair’s Multiple POVs

17 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

 Warning: Spoilers ahead for this week's episode of The Affair.What did she know, and when did she know it? Maura Tierney's character on Showtime's The Affair, Helen Solloway, may still be in the dark about the fling between her husband Noah (Dominic West) and waitress Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson) — and about his mistress's involvement with cocaine dealing. But the NewsRadio and ER vet tells Vulture she was clued in early by creator Sarah Treem. How much did you know about what was really going on when you started shooting the show? I knew a fair amount. Sarah had the first two seasons pretty well mapped-out in terms of an overall arc. So I knew from the very beginning what happens in episode six and what happens in episode eight, but in terms of exactly how it unfolds, I didn't know. And I didn't want to know. It's kind »

Portia de Rossi, Norman Lear, Jesse Tyler Ferguson Salute TV’s Impact on Lgbt Equality at Paley Center Gala

13 November 2014 11:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The portrayal of the Lgbt community on TV has come a long way since 1963, when NBC’s “Espionage” became the first drama series to use the word homosexual in a script.

On Wednesday night, the Paley Center’s L.A. Benefit Gala offered a look back at the last 50 years of programming and gathered small screen stars including Portia de Rossi, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet to celebrate TV’s impact on Lgbt equality. The fundraising event, held at the Skirball Cultural Center and sponsored by Honey Maid, chronicled the history of Lgbt images in television, from dramas and comedies to TV movies, miniseries and sports.

De Rossi, who was accompanied on the red carpet by her mother-in-law Betty DeGeneres, discussed her own personal struggles and growth as an actress and member of the Lgbt community.

Us networks plot film spin-offs

13 November 2014 1:32 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Major Us broadcasters are developing more than 20 TV adaptations of feature films as they follow the example of their cable counterparts.

Us pay-tv networks have recently found success with the likes of Fargo and Teen Wolf, and have lined up further adaptations of Scream (MTV), Twelve Monkeys (Syfy), Shutter Island (HBO) and Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead (Starz).

Traditional networks - ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW - are now getting involved and have struck deals for adaptations of well-known films including Big, Minority Report and The Devil’s Advocate, as well as more niche films such as John Ritter’s Problem Child and Val Kilmer’s Real Genius.

The networks have ordered scripts for the 20-plus adaptations and will decide which projects to pilot by January. Those taken to series will likely be ordered in May for an autumn 2015 launch.

Mariska Hargitay is beloved by millions of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit viewers as Sgt. Olivia Benson, but it took the actress many years of auditions to get to the top of the primetime ranks as one of TV's favorite female characters. In an interview with Inside the Actors Studio's James Lipton on Bravo, Hargitay, 50, revealed that she was once overlooked for a role on E.R. in the late '90s because of the same take-charge attitude she demonstrates on Svu. Confident she nailed her audition [...] »

22 fan favorite TV characters who came very late to the show

12 November 2014 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this week, Yahoo announced that season 6 of "Community" would get some much-needed new blood, with Paget Brewster and Keith David joining a cast that's lost Donald Glover, Chevy Chase and Yvette Nicole Brown in the last few years (not to mention prominent recurring players Jonathan Banks and John Oliver). Now, sometimes, late-in-life TV show cast changes and/or additions can be a death knell. "The X-Files" without Mulder (and then Scully) just isn't "The X-Files," and nobody much liked either Doggett or (especially) Reyes. Ditto "The Facts of Life" trying to swap in Cloris Leachman for Charlotte Rae, or "Welcome Back Kotter" thinking they could survive without John Travolta as Barbarino. Other times, though, a cast change can be just the shot in the arm a veteran show needs. "Law & Order" most famously made a science out of swapping actors in and out of its cast, but lots of »

The 'Sisters' reunite. Next step? Let's get this show on Netflix!

7 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Seven years before the world met Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha, there were four other women talking frankly about sex and relationships each week on TV. Sisters, which ran on NBC from 1991 to '96, chronicled the lives of the Reeds: Alex (Swoosie Kurtz), Teddy (Sela Ward), Georgie (Patricia Kalember), and Frankie (Julianne Phillips). Though the show has never been released on DVD or streaming, it has a devoted cult of fans with warm memories of the siblings who fought hard—Teddy once spray-painted "slut" on Frankie's car—but always had each other's backs. Sisters was mired in controversy even before it aired. »

New Atlantis series 2 trailer lands

7 November 2014 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis series 2 is a darker, more action-packed beast, and here's the trailer to prove it...

"The Gods have spoken. A new dawn is beginning."

The BBC is certainly not messing around with this new Atlantis series 2 trailer, which features more fights, action and explosions than you can shake several sticks at (or, ha, perhaps that should be StyxEr, no, it shouldn't be. Sorry).

The new run of the Howard Overman-penned Greek myth drama promises to be a reborn show that lives up to its half-eight timeslot, with all the villainy, stabbing and twisty betrayal that involves.

The new series welcomes the arrival of Medea (Amy Manson), and the pleasing prospect of Princess Ariadne getting out of the palace for once and showing some ruffians who's boss, Katniss-style. Oh, and there's also a bit of snogging by the looks of things too.
