Shawshank Redemption celebrates 20th anniversary: The cast then and now

21 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.

The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.

Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.

Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)

Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.

Post-Shawshank he starred in films ranging from Mission to Mars, to High Fidelity and Green Lantern. His biggest career success »

Dan Futterman on 'Birdcage' Director Mike Nichols: "He Knew How to Draw the Best out of People"

20 November 2014 3:15 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Actor-writer Dan Futterman called in to Sirius Xm radio on Thursday to remember his Birdcage director Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday night. Futterman, who's gone on to write films like Bennett Miller's Capote and Foxcatcher, played the son of Robin Williams and Nathan Lane's characters in the 1996 movie, which Nichols directed. He was one of several relatively unknown actors to star in the film, along with a pre-Ally McBeal Calista Flockhart, Hank Azaria and Nathan Lane, whom Futterman said hadn't really played a part like his role in The Birdcage before. Futterman recalled that Nichols seemed to

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.

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #40-31

14 October 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny.  We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how 'The Newsroom' would end when he began writing the final season

17 September 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how “The Newsroom” would end when he began writing the final season "For most of the time, I didn’t know how the show was going to end,” he says. "I would have small images of what I wanted to see. But the closer I got to the end of the season in terms of writing, the more I was able to see the end of the season finale. Once we got there, it happened more easily than I thought it was going to.” “Godzilla” movie has a “Breaking Bad” easter egg For a split second in the opening credits, you can see Walter White’s name.

A Look at Robert Downey Jr.’s Top Nominations

5 September 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Robert Downey Jr. is no stranger to box office smashes; The success of Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man and The Avengers has proven Downey’s ability to dominate the world of Hollywood blockbusters. Downey takes a step towards a more serious role than he’s had the past few years with this fall’s family drama, The Judge.

Since opening the 39th Toronto International Film Festival Thursday evening,the film hasn’t been hailed as the next best picture nominee to come out of Toronto, but that doesn’t mean it won’t score any nominations.

Both Oscar winner Robert Duvall and two-time Oscar nominee Downey, have been garnering high praise for their roles as father and son, which could lead to potential nominations for the 87th Academy Awards. Duvall has a long awards history, but Downey also has his fair share of praise. Here are »

Jon Hamm: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked‏

29 August 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

If ever there was an argument against nominative determinism, it’s the acting career of Jon Hamm. As philandering ad executive Don Draper on Mad Men he’s brought one of the most intense and believable performances in the current TV renaissance of “mysterious, angry white dudes), a quality he’s since brought to other film and television roles. We assume he was similarly impressive when he played Winnie The Pooh in the first grade – possibly using some clever ad-speak to convince Rabbit to give him some Honey – and Judas in Godspell at age 16. Surprisingly, for the guy who’s the current toast of Hollywood, he didn’t take acting at all seriously at first. In fact, save for those two juvenile attempts at it, he’d basically abandoned acting as a viable career.

Luckily for all of us, he reconsidered after moving home to complete his college degree, »

My So-Called Life: where are they now?

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Look Who's Talking (1989) and the Perils of Revisiting Childhood Faves

22 August 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hello everyone, Manuel here jumping aboard my personal DeLorean and taking a trip to 1989 to catch up with what’s still Amy Heckerling’s biggest box office success, the comedy Look Who's Talking.

There's a certain joy and sadness in revisiting films you remember enjoying as a kid. Some, because of their continued playback on cable or at your own home theater, seem to age with you so that their flaws become endearing while their wonders become treasures you hoard as if they were intended just for you. In this, films can be like old friends. Catching up with one you haven’t seen in over a decade can be a terrifying prospect. Have they aged well? Do you still share the same sense of humor? Will there be awkward silences where there were laughs before?

Much like its stock male lead, Look Who’s Talking is a flawed, sloppy, »

Carla Gugino Will Go To The Brink For HBO

14 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.

Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”

As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »
