Emmy-nominated director Adam Bernstein on creating wintery world of 'Fargo' [Exclusive Video]

13 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When director Adam Bernstein joined the "Fargo" production team, he had the luxury of many months to prepare. Alongside showrunner Noah Hawley, they crafted the look, mood, and feel based on the wintery Canadian location of Calgary. They also took cues from the Joel and Ethan Coen source material from the 1996 film and their other movie "No Country for Old Men." -Break- In our recent webcam chat (watch below), he reveals, "When you're doing a pilot, there's a much larger piece of the pie that you're involved with. You're involved in setting up the main characters and the recurring characters. You're deciding what this environment is going to look like, what the color palettes are going to be, how you're going to light it, what the camera style is going to be. There's a lot of design work involved and a lot of prep work, but it's very rewarding." Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, »

Billy Bob Thornton, Joe Morton Share Emmy Excitement, Wardrobe Plans at Performers Peer Group Celebration

29 July 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“It’s one of my favorite events of the year,” exclaimed TV Academy governor Bob Bergen of Monday’s Performers Peer Group party at Montage Beverly Hills. “We get to celebrate the Performers Peer Group and the nominees as well — it’s so wonderful.”

And celebrate they did. Nominees and members of the Peer Group turned out to mingle and celebrate ahead of the 66th Emmy Awards with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Billy Bob Thornton and Joe Morton among the attendees.

“There’s nothing like a party with some old friends and some new friends, and we’re all here to breathe, I think,” said Morton, nominated for his role on “Scandal.” This will be the actor’s first Emmy Awards, and he says he is “really looking forward to it.”

“It’s a lot of fun getting dressed up,” said Minnie Driver with a grin. Driver is nominated for Lifetime’s “Return to Zero. »

What We Now Know About American Horror Story: Freak Show

27 July 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

American Horror Story made its first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but true to form, they were chary with the details about the upcoming season currently in production, Freak Show. But at the very least, we now know more about the characters, including the fact that the villain, to be played by Fargo's John Carroll Lynch, will rival Rubber Man, Bloody Face, and the Minotaur from the previous three seasons in terms of pure horror. "He will scare the shit out of you," said executive producer Tim Minear at a Saturday Comic-Con panel.Here are some other tidbits: Jessica Lange (who wasn't there because she was shooting Wild Oats in Spain) will play Elsa Mars, the head of the freak show. The show is set in Jupiter, Florida, in the 1950s. As for the rest of the cast: Kathy Bates will play Ethel Darling with Evan Peters »

Wildcat And Ra’s Al Ghul Are Heading To Arrow

27 July 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman ReturnsBrandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.

The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

#SDCC14: American Horror Story: Freak Show's Scary New Villain and More Character Details

27 July 2014 12:45 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Overall "American Horror Story: Coven" was a bit lacking, but with word coming out of the show's Sdcc panel that its successor, "Freak Show," will be home to a new villain who rivals Season 1's Rubber Man, "Asylum's" Bloody Face, and "Coven's" Minotaur, color us curious.

We don't know the big bad's name yet, but John Carroll Lynch (pictured; Shutter Island, Fargo, "Carnivale") is playing him, and exec producer Tim Minear promises "he will scare the shit out of you.”

Minear says "Freak Show" is "not like the first three seasons," dubbing it "Douglas Sirk meets Zodiac." Coincidentally (or not, you never know with "Ahs") Lynch appeared in David Fincher's Zodiac.

Several of the other cast members' full character names were revealed during the Saturday evening event: Emma Roberts is Maggie; Sarah Paulson is Siamese twins Bette and Dot Tattler; Michael Chiklis is Wendell del Toredo; Angela Bassett is Wendell's wife, »

Arrow Season 3 Gets An Action-Packed New Trailer

25 July 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In anticipation for the Arrow panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the CW has released the first trailer for the upcoming third season, which is packed to the gills with new footage.

After a heart-pounding second season, Arrow is really going to need to hit the ground running. Judging by this new trailer, it looks like the series’ impressive momentum is still intact, and things are off to an intense start. We’ve see Roy suited up as Arsenal and fighting alongside Oliver, and Sara Lance returning to Starling as the Canary. On top of that, we’ve got Fargo alum Peter Stormare looking mighty intimidating as the new Count Vertigo, and our first glimpse at former Superman Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom.

Things look to be shaking up on the personal side too, as it looks like Oliver and Diggle have a falling out, while »

Nicolas Cage Revenge Film Rage Heading To DVD/Bluray This August!

21 July 2014 11:47 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nicolas Cage has done a great job choosing roles lately, with great turns in films like David Gordon Green’s Joe and the Paco Cabezas revenge film, Rage (formerly titled Tokarev). The latter, an exceptionally written and directed take on how one’s past can and most likely Will catch up with them is set to hit DVD/Bluray this August 12th, via Image Entertainment. Having seen the film earlier this year, on its VOD run (here), we can definitely vouch for this one, as it’s a pretty intense and emotional, tough as nails thriller. If Cage keeps putting out films like these, then the internet meme persona he’s unfortunately acquired in recent years can finally fade away, making people realize that he’s an exceptional actor (you’re lying if you say that you’re not a fan of Raising Arizona, and his Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas »

Fargo renewed for second season on FX

21 July 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

'Fargo' Season 2 Renewal Press Tour Live-Blog

21 July 2014 4:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This was a "Tbd" panel on FX's TCA schedule and, given the opinions, my guesses were down to either a "Partners" panel with Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence or a "Fargo" renewal panel. Since "Partners" premieres early next month and Grammer and possibly Lawrence (I didn't see him, so I don't know) were at last night's Fox/FX party, that wouldn't have seemed to require "Tbd" mystery.  And, indeed, FX began the morning by announcing a "Fargo" renewal and John Landgraf demurred on several questions about Season 2 specifics, saying that Noah Hawley and Warren Littlefield would have more details later. Don't expect That many details, but follow along... 4:45 p.m. This is our panel of the day. "Sons of Anarchy" had a fine panel previously that Geoff Berkshire will be writing up for us and, in fact, he's probably doing that as I type. 4:50 p.m. The second »

FX Miniseries 'Fargo' Gets Second Season

20 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Fargo, the TV miniseries adaptation of the 1996 feature film that made its debut on FX this year, will get a sophomore season.

'Fargo' Gets Second Season

It was announced at the Television Critics Association Monday that Noah Hawley’s Fargo miniseries would have a second season, reported Deadline. Based off of Joel and Ethan Coen’s movie, which won a best writing Oscar, the TV show’s first season closely followed the plot that featured a pregnant police chief investigating a hapless man who works with career criminals to hide his own bungled crimes.

For Fargo’s second season, Hawley will be taking the story in a completely new direction. There will be an entirely new cast of characters to play out the new “true crime” story in a new time period, according to FX.

“We could not be more proud of Fargo,” said FX Networks CEO John Landgraf. »

‘Fargo’: The Pivotal Decision That Made the FX Miniseries Shine

19 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There would be no middle ground when it came to “Fargo.” The bold decision by FX and MGM Television to mount a miniseries inspired by the “Minnesota nice” world crafted in the Coen brothers’ 1996 feature would either be a creative home run or the equivalent of “television karaoke,” in the words of MGM TV exec Steve Stark.

Writer Noah Hawley and producer Warren Littlefield didn’t need 18 Emmy nominations to know how well the effort turned out. But the recognition for all aspects of the production — from stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Allison Tolman to the sound mixing — confirms how deftly they threaded the needlepoint.

“We knew if we were ever going to make this, it had to hold its own against the movie,” said Eric Schrier, FX’s prexy of original programming and FX Prods. “It took a lot of courage to do it.”

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Derek’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.

The Zero Theorem

Directed by Terry Gilliam

USA/UK/Romania/France, 2013

Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »

Press Tour: Emmy chief will look at category problem, do nothing

13 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's press tour panel for the 2014 Emmy telecast was a chance for Seth Meyers and his "Late Night" producer Mike Shoemaker to talk about their approach to Seth hosting the show. Mainly, though, it was an opportunity for TV critics to complain to Television Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum about the broken Emmy category system — and for Rosenblum to smile, talk about his desire to examine the problem, and then make clear that he has no real plans to do anything to fix it. In fact, Rosenblum mainly seemed to think that the category issue — where dramatic shows are submitted as comedies, where miniseries are submitted as ongoing series (and, in the case of shows like "Tremé" and "Luther," vice versa), where series regulars are submitted as guest stars — was a good thing, because it suggested a healthy state of the industry. "There's far more terrific programming today," he noted. "The »

Emmy bait: Watch nominees in 25 of the year's best TV scenes

11 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.

EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »
