RelatedMindy Project: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Tapped for Trippy Season 4 Premiere
In fact, Kaling is so pumped about the new season that she tweeted a picture of the premiere’s script — penned by Kaling herself — which revealed the title to be “While I Was Sleeping.”

Curiously, this wasn’t the original title of the premiere. Prior to Kaling’s tweet, it was rumored to be “How My »
Luckily, we were able to calm down mid-pound cake inhalation thanks to Buzzfeed, which shared details about Jgl's new role (hint: it does not mean the end of Mindy and our beloved Danny Castellano, played by Chris Messina).

“The Mindy Project” may be breaking new ground on Hulu, but its tradition of casting the starriest of guest stars continues.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will guest on the season four premiere of the show, which makes its Hulu debut later this year.
The premiere episode will be inspired by the 1998 Gwyneth Paltrow rom-com “Sliding Doors,” according to Buzzfeed. Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) is no longer with longtime boyfriend and co-worker Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) in the new alternate universe, but married to Levitt’s character, a Bravo reality TV producer. The character brings their connection full circle as Kaling and Messina recently guest-starred in the season two premiere of Levitt’s Pivot series “HitRecord on TV.”

When The Mindy Project makes its Hulu debut later this year, it'll do so with Joseph Gordon-Levitt: As BuzzFeed reports, he's set to join the show for its season-four premiere, in which he'll play Mindy Kaling's husband. If that news comes as a shock to Mindy and Danny shippers, don't worry! The premiere takes place in an alternate version of Mindy's life — an idea inspired by the 1998 rom-com Sliding Doors — in which Jgl plays a reality-show producer for Bravo, a.k.a. the man of everyone's dreams. Because no one writes better fanfic than Mindy Kaling. »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one. Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine? Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth? A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe? It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

★★★★☆ Traditional narrative tropes of chance and fate are employed to glean some insight into living in Communist era Poland in Krzysztof Kieslowski's Blind Chance (1987). Imagine Sliding Doors (1998) but rather than setting in motion very different romantic entanglements, the failure to catch a train fundamentally turns on a pin someone's worldview. This is what happens to Witek (Boguslaw Linda) via three different visions of his life after a desperate run along a station platform. They interrogate the formulation of individual values in the arguably unchanging everyman, as well as exploring various facets of contemporary Polish society and politics with a humanistic but pessimistic bent.

Cinemax’s “Banshee” concluded its third — and unquestionably best — season tonight with a whole lot of violence, mystery and big emotion that’s characterized the pulp thriller from the start. It’s not that season 3 did anything appreciably different from the first two, but rather a matter of the execution going up a notch, with more elaborate fight scenes (including an episode that was wall-to-wall action as the Banshee police precinct came under siege), more colorful villains, and more dire emotional stakes. Earlier this week, I got on the phone with the show’s co-creator, Jonathan Tropper, to discuss how the season played out and plans for the future, which includes a shorter fourth season and a move of production from North Carolina to Pittsburgh. When the season began, you had two big intertwined threats. You had Chayton coming back and starting this insurrection by the Redbones, and you had »

Reminiscent of the movie “Sliding Doors,” VH1’s latest scripted series, “Hindsight,” contains a familiar but nevertheless intriguing premise: What if handling one moment or action differently could seriously alter your life? Throw in a time-travel element, “Life on Mars”-like anachronisms and the desire to get home again, and there’s plenty of material to mine in this promising hour, which, like most such exercises, fares best if you don’t overburden the concept with a lot of thought or questions, like why someone who goes back in time would bother working when she could simply make a killing by investing in Apple.
The premiere finds Becca (a very appealing Laura Ramsey) preparing for her second wedding. Yet she can’t help but wonder if she’s going to get it right this time, plagued by doubts about her judgment that have her “questioning every decision I’ve ever »
