Loretta Devine adds her spark to The Carmichael Show

25 August 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

From her Broadway turn in Dreamgirls and starring roles in films like Waiting to Exhale and Jumping the Broom to TV’s Grey’s Anatomy, Loretta Devine has the thespian trifecta when it comes to a diversified resumé. The delightfully humble Devine returns to TV in comedian Jerrod Carmichael’s new multicam sitcom The Carmichael Show (beginning Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 9pm on NBC). The laugh-out-loud series is a modern-day All in the Family of sorts that follows the Carmichael family’s zany dynamics. Carmichael plays Jerrod, who’s hiding from his contrarian father (David Alan Grier) and Bible-obsessed mother (Devine) that his girlfriend Maxine … Continue reading →

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

Whitney Houston’s Family Blasts Lifetime for Unauthorized Biopic

18 January 2015 1:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whitney Houston’s estate is telling fans they should “brace for the worst” if they choose to watch Lifetime’s Angela Bassett-directed biopic, which premiered on Saturday.

The family of the late singer has come out slamming the network and Bassett for the unauthorized biopic, “Whitney,” releasing a long statement, written by Houston’s sister-in-law Pat Houston, on her official website.

“If you watch this movie, watch it knowing that Lifetime is notorious for making bad biopics of deceased celebrities and brace yourself for the worst,” Pat Houston wrote, referring to recent biopics based on Brittany Murphy and the controversial Aaliyah movie. “You should not be surprised that someone decided to do a made for TV biopic. And, I might add, without the family’s blessing and despite her mother’s request to not do this movie. It happens every day.”

Lifetime had no comment on the statement.

Whitney Houston's Family Slams Lifetime, Angela Bassett Over Unauthorized Biopic

18 January 2015 8:42 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

While Lifetime's Whitney Houston biopic was packed with many hell-to-the-yes moments, not everyone was happy to see a skewed version of the singer's life story on the small screen. Perhaps no one was more upset about Whitney than Houston's own family, who shared a long statement criticizing the unauthorized biopic on the singer's official site.

The statement, penned by Houston's sister-in-law Pat Houston, slams Lifetime and director Angela Bassett for airing a subpar quality movie based on Houston's life from the perspective of ex-husband Bobby Brown. "If you watch this movie, »

With the Lifetime biopic Whitney set to air Saturday, Cissy Houston, the mother of the iconic singer, who died in 2012, is speaking out about the TV movie that was made without the family's cooperation.

Exclusive! Angela Bassett Reveals Which 'Whitney' Scenes She Absolutely Wouldn't Include in Biopic

13 January 2015 6:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Angela Bassett will always love Whitney Houston.

"I'm not gonna tear her down," Bassett insists, getting candid with ETonline in a new interview to promote her directorial debut focusing on the life of the late pop-music legend.

In Whitney, premiering Jan. 17 on Lifetime, the actress-turned-director gives the public a peek into the singer's trials and tribulations behind the mic -- but don't go misreading her intentions, she says. Bassett went as far as cutting scenes from the film to avoid tarnishing Houston's legacy.

"There were certain things in the script, and it was like, 'No, we're not gonna show that!'" the director says. "With the song with Babyface ("I'm Your Baby Tonight"), the way it was written (in the script was) she picks up a cigarette and can't concentrate on finishing the song because she's thinking about what's not going right with Bobby »

Review: Lifetime's Angela Bassett-Directed 'Whitney' is Surprisingly Fresh

13 January 2015 3:35 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Admittedly, I was skeptical when I heard that Angela Bassett would be directing a film about Whitney Houston’s life for Lifetime. Ms. Bassett knew Whitney personally, having worked with her in "Waiting to Exhale" (1995), and her husband Courtney B. Vance, also worked with Whitney on the film "The Preacher’s Wife" (1996).  Perhaps it was because of this friendship and reverence for the star that allowed Ms. Bassett to make the, surprisingly, honest, passionate, and well-done "Whitney." Instead of a biography of Ms. Houston’s entire career and life, Ms. Bassett chose to focus on her passionate, obsessive and often tumultuous relationship with her then »
