Benedict Cumberbatch Reveals His Secret to Memorizing Lines for Sherlock

23 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The 'Batch is back! Benedict Cumberbatch, once the Internet's boyfriend and now an Oscar-nominated global sensation, has returned to the role that initially broke his career - the charming, asexual, modern day Sherlock Holmes. In between attending awards shows in Hollywood for his role in The Imitation Game, the newly engaged actor has been seen filming in London with costar Martin Freeman for a one-off Sherlock special set to air later this year. So how does the actor manage to remember the crazy, rapid-fire lines that his Holmes character spews forth when making his deductions? "There are two things," Cumberbatch tells People. »

Wolf Hall preview: 'giving this sorry year some meaning'

21 January 2015 1:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The long-awaited adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s book is upon us, so it’s time to get down with the rise and fall of Thomas Cromwell

Mark Rylance: Richard III gave me lesson in ‘vicious nature of fate’

“Wolsey, you’re out!” bellows the Duke of Norfolk, clearly a kind of proto Alan Sugar. “I will chew you up. Bones, flesh, and gristle!”

This impassioned speech means one of only two things: either someone’s been snooping round in my draft texts, or the hugely anticipated dramatisation of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall is here. Alleviating the sharp pain of January and giving this sorry year some meaning, the six-part series, which charts Thomas Cromwell’s rise and fall in the leadup to the Reformation, doesn’t disappoint, covering everything from his interactions with the major players of the court through to his domestic life and flashbacks to a »

‘House of Cards’ Debuts Season 3 Trailer

12 January 2015 10:06 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The trailer for the much-anticipated third season of the Netflix original series “House of Cards” comes hot on the heels of Kevin Spacey’s win at last night’s Golden Globe Awards. The prolific actor was on Backstage’s cover in May of last year where he chatted about being Frank Underwood, taking on the role of Richard III, and the documentary that resulted from playing the tragic king. Backstage also spoke with Spacey’s co-star Robin Wright about the perfectly frigid Claire Underwood and her film “The Congress,” as well as supporting actor Molly Parker about playing Senate whip Jackie Sharp. If you’re ready for a taste of what’s to come in what we’re sure is going to be an explosive season, check out the trailer for Season 3 below. Inspired by this post?

Rod Taylor, ‘The Birds’ and ‘The Time Machine’ Star, Dies at 84

8 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rod Taylor, the Australian-born actor who starred in George Pal’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine” and in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” then decades later made a memorable swan-song appearance as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” died Wednesday of a heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 84.

His daughter Felicia, a former CNN correspondent, confirmed the news Thursday.

Taylor made his feature starring debut in 1960 sci-fier “The Time Machine,” portraying a fictionalized Wells, who invents a time machine in Victorian England and travels to the distant future. He also starred in a brief ABC adventure series, “Hong Kong.”

The next year he voiced the lead canine, Pongo, in Disney’s “101 Dalmatians.” Even after an impressive performance in Hitchcock’s well-received 1963 “The Birds” (in photo above), the actor never quite made it into the first rank of Hollywood actors.

​Oscars 2015: Let the Mudslinging Begin

5 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It was inevitable, with so many inspired-by-a-true-story films in the Oscar race, that there would be grumbling about the inaccuracies of various awards-contending movies. This year, however, all those complaints seemed to emerge at once, mostly during the past week. And the gripes are especially bitter, seemingly aimed not just at questioning the movies' factuality but also at sabotaging their chances of winning awards. It's this sort of mudslinging that has many observers wondering if those who complain are actually doing the bidding of campaigners for competing films and performers.

The loudest trash talk last week came from gold-medal-winning Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, who is played by Channing Tatum in the awards-contender "Foxcatcher." Noticing that reviewers of the recently-released films have found a subtext of homosexuality in the movie (though it's all in the way that creepy coach John du Pont, played by Steve Carell, behaves toward Schultz, and not »
