Full Cast Revealed for Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Papers’

6 June 2017 6:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A few months ago we thought the next Steven Spielberg film we’ll see will be his March-bound Ready Player One, but as the director is known to do, while he’s in post-production on his sci-fi tentpole, he’ll also be shooting a new drama. Once going by The Post, his Pentagon Papers film — now titled The Papers — starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep has begun production and now the full cast has been unveiled.

Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Pat Healy, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods have all joined the the film, according to Variety. Along with being a Mr. Show reunion, it’s quite the varied, impressive supporting ensemble, and we’re already imagining the newsroom banter.

The drama will follow the true story of Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) and »

Bob Odenkirk Recalls His First Emmy Win

31 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

These days Bob Odenkirk is best known for his Emmy nominated work as the star of the acclaimed “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul.” But Odenkirk’s first brush with Emmy came thanks to his career in comedy writing. In his second season on staff at “Saturday Night Live,” Odenkirk was part of a crew including Conan O’Brien, Mike Myers and Al Franken who went home with Emmy gold.

What do you remember about your first Emmy experience?

We were all so young. I rented a tuxedo because I didn’t own one. I didn’t see why I would ever need to own a tuxedo in my life. Now I have four. I don’t think I need four, but whatever I have them. It was comical to all of us. It was a weird mix of an honor, and a joke. We just felt like such interlopers in the actual business. We »

Newswire: R.I.P. Brad Grey, legendary manager and producer and ex-Paramount CEO

15 May 2017 9:19 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Brad Grey, the celebrated manager and producer turned film executive who recently ended a 12-year tenure as chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures, has died. Grey, who retired from Paramount mere months ago, died of cancer at home in Holmby Hills, California, according to Deadline. He was 59.

Born in the Bronx in December 1957, Grey began his career while he was a student at the University of Buffalo. He worked as an assistant to Harvey Weinstein during the latter’s early days as a concert promoter, before breaking out on his own as a manager of young New York-based stand-up comics. (Bob Saget was his first client.) In 1984, Grey convinced fellow talent manager Bernie Brillstein to make him a partner in his company; re-dubbed Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, the company went on to produce shows like Mr. Show, NewsRadio, Real Time With Bill Maher, and The Sopranos as well as ...

Albert Einstein, Comedy Icon? 9 Examples of How Film and TV Depict His Lighter Side

25 April 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The legacy of Albert Einstein cannot be overstated — even when we take the scientist’s accomplishments for granted, he’s one of our planet’s most famous pop culture figures, recognizable across generations. The way he’s been depicted on screen has ranged from well-researched takes on the man’s life, such as Nat Geo Channel’s new anthology series “Genius,” premiering today, to, shall we say, somewhat more out-there fare.

Below are some of the most notable examples we found featuring the great scientist depicted in a less-than-serious state. What’s interesting about looking at all of these examples together is how on the one hand, Einstein as an icon has been utilized for the sake of comedy for decades now. But when film or TV choose to engage with the reality of the man himself, »

The Last Word: Bob Odenkirk on Catholic Guilt, the Replacements and Late-Breaking Fame

5 April 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Bob Odenkirk's 30-plus-year career has included a stint as an SNL writer, a groundbreaking sketch series (Mr. Show), stand-up comedy, and, most recently, Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel in which he gives a brilliant performance as "morally flexible" lawyer Jimmy McGill. And how has the 54-year-old actor's outlook changed over that three-decade span? "As a young man I was the fuckin' expert on comedy, on who was funny and who wasn't funny and who's a douchebag," he says. "I still feel those things but I don't think I'm so right. »

Watch: The Greeting Card Business Gets Weird In Bob Odenkirk's 'Girlfriend's Day' Trailer

17 January 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

You can tell Bob Odenkirk is the perfect loser in Girlfriend's Day because he plays a professional greeting card writer. The irony of such a job for such a character has been seen before in The Lonely GuyMissing PiecesMr. Deeds, (500) Days of Summer and, with a bit of variation, Her. In this new movie, a Netflix original, the main premise is that he used to be the best at it and now must reign again through a contest related to the titular new holiday. Odenkirk seems perfect for the role, as it's almost like he's playing his TV character Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad and now Better Call Saul as a writer instead of a lawyer. He co-wrote the script with his old Mr. Show collaborator Eric Hoffman...

Flashback: Bob Odenkirk Plays Charles Manson as Lassie-esque Companion

9 January 2017 8:37 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Charles Manson's place in pop culture was already well established by the early 1990s, with the provocative, baiting convict portrayed in film and television as a serious criminal ringleader. But Bob Odenkirk, who would later find success on Mr. Show, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, created the most singular performance of the cult leader in 1992, turning the deranged criminal into man's best f(r)iend on the revered, short-lived The Ben Stiller Show.

Simply titled "Manson," the skit finds a long-haired, bearded Odenkirk in a 1950s Lassie-styled TV show wildly gesticulating, »
