Career Watch: As 'Mad Men' Enters Its Final Season, Can Jon Hamm Rebrand Himself as a Movie Star?

14 April 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With "Mad Men" now in its seventh and final season, the existential journey of '60s ad exec Don Draper will conclude next spring. And star Jon Hamm will be freed of the business suit-and-tie confines of his character's enigmatic ladykiller image. Or will he?Before signing on with the AMC series that proved non-premium cable channels could pull off adult-oriented material despite restrictions on language and nudity, Hamm was just another struggling TV actor who lucked into a role of a lifetime. But as James Gandolfini of "The Sopranos" and Sarah Jessica Parker of "Sex and the City" learned, it isn't so easy to peel off the persistent persona of a central character in a long-running show -- especially when that image is established through the intimacy of TV.  Hamm's ability to fully cross into a big-screen leading man territory will be tested soon enough when his true-life baseball »

Nurse Jackie's Edie Falco and Other TV Drug Addicts We're Addicted To

13 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Let's be clear: There's nothing funny about drug addiction, nor is there anything to be gained from glamorizing it. But there have still been some amazing characters struggling - with varying degrees of silliness - with addiction on television. As Edie Falco returns to television Sunday in Nurse Jackie, we're looking at other famous addicts from the small screen who have captured our hearts. Edie Falco as Nurse Jackie Falco's critically-acclaimed turn as Nurse Jackie's lead has been peppered with a whole lot of pills, including - in no particular order - Vicodin, Adderall, Percocet, Xanax and Oxycontin. Though she recently went to rehab, »

‘Mad Men’ Preview: Buckle Up For 7 ‘Dense’ Episodes, Says Matthew Weiner

11 April 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Get ready and don’t blink — the “Mad Men” mini season that begins on Sunday is tightly packed with momentous developments for the core Sterling Cooper gang.

“The episodes are dense,” creator/exec producer Matthew Weiner says of season 7-a. Because the show’s finale is divided over two years, and the first batch of seven episodes have to stand alone until the final seven air next year, each seg is action-packed, he says.

“After realizing that I needed two premieres and two finales, it changed the pacing of every other episode. These episodes are more focused on the main characters than ever before — and I’ve got a lot of main characters. There’s no room for digression this time. The first seven feel like (the story arc of) a whole season,” Weiner says.

The historical backdrop of the era (presumably early-ish in 1969) is an important factor as always »

Fargo comes to Channel 4: 'This is not a TV series, it's a 10-hour movie'

11 April 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Showrunner Noah Hawley and actor Bob Odenkirk explain how the cult film was adapted for TV with the Coen Brothers' blessing

This is a true story. In 1998, the current TV belle epoque not even a twinkle in the eye of the Us networks, a pilot was filmed for a TV series of the Coen brothers' churningly tense black comedy Fargo, which had been released two years previously. It was the last writing and production credit for the late Bruce Paltrow (father of Gwyneth), starred The Sopranos' Edie Falco and was directed by Misery actor and occasional director Kathy Bates. Set in Brainerd, Minnesota, it featured Falco as police chief Marge Gunderson, the role immortalised by Frances McDormand in the movie. The Coen brothers were not involved. The project, though strangely enticing, fizzled out.

Then, in 2012, news emerged that another telly crew had taken an interest in the world of Fargo, »

Seitz on Mad Men Season 7: The Sad Spectacle of Misbehavior

11 April 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sadness hangs over Mad Men — not just the seventh season premiere, but the entire show. I won’t describe the new episode here, because I want everyone to experience it fresh, as I did. But I can say, to the shock of no one who watches Matthew Weiner’s period drama, that it’s about choices made and not made, roads taken or not taken, and the sense of melancholy regret that people sometimes feel no matter what decisions they made or how their lives turned out. A good friend recently told me he stopped watching Mad Men after season four because it became apparent to him that this would be a show on which almost nobody changed in any meaningful way; he quit The Sopranos after a few seasons for the same reason. I know a number of people who make similar choices about what to watch and what to skip. »

TV Review: ‘Californication,’ The Final Season

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

At times “Californication” feels like the series Showtime never got around to canceling. So the fact the raunchy comedy has reached a seventh and final season characterizes it as a survivor, despite its excesses and occasional bad impulses, much like its flawed protagonist. Alas, the swan-song episodes (and the pay service made all 12 available in advance) is emblematic of what’s been fun about the show but also the balancing weight of what’s wrong with it, including a slightly cloying aspect to the central relationship that makes it hard to care about its outcome.

Part of that has to do with a fundamental problem: A good chunk of “Californication’s” allure for the pay-cable audience has been the way self-destructive writer Hank Moody (star and producer David Duchovny) beds an assortment of spectacular women. So Hank’s pining for Karen (Natascha McElhone), the mother of his daughter, invariably has »

'Mad Men's Jon Hamm Says Goodbye to Don Draper

10 April 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In the final episode of Mad Men's sixth season, Don Draper had hit an all-time low – losing (or on the verge of losing) everything that was important to him. As Draper's epic journey turns toward the homestretch, with the seventh and final season kicking off this Sunday on AMC, we reached out to Jon Hamm, who opened up about what's next for his character, the lessons he learned from James Gandolfini and why Mad Men kind of really is all about Peggy.

The “Bates Motel” Staying Open for Another Season, “Game of Thrones” Opens Big and the “Justified” Finale

8 April 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

A&E has ordered a third season of Bates Motel. Good news for viewers, bad news for Norma Bates who just can’t catch a break.

At a press conference, Neil Patrick Harris responded to speculation about him taking over for David Letterman as Late Show host, “I’m super-focused on Hedwig at the moment, so that hasn’t even been a conversation at all.” He later added, “It would be an asinine amount of work.”

Meanwhile, as the speculation into the next Late Show host continues, TheWrap reports that CBS was talking with Chelsea Handler about hosting a syndicated talk show or taking over The Late Late Show when Letterman announced his retirement. Now, those talks have moved towards the Late Show spot.

Syfy has ordered 13 episodes of Olympus, a drama about a young man who grows to be someone capable of banishing the gods to Hades.

Conference Call Interview With Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner

3 April 2014 7:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mad Men is one of the most celebrated programs in television history and helped to refine AMC as a network dedicated to quality scripted storytelling. Unlike other much-anticipated TV returns this year, such as HBO’s Game of Thrones, fans of the series have little to chew on. Without much in the way of clips, ads or interviews with the cast, most of what will transpire at the office of Sterling Cooper & Partners is a mystery to viewers.

That insistence to avoid spoilers is closely tied to the tight-lipped sensibility of the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner. Weiner first broke through as a writer on Becker and received two Emmy nominations for his work on the last three seasons of The Sopranos. His work on the HBO show, which became a television milestone before the age of the “spoiler alert,” made him interested in staying mum on what happens on Mad Men, »

Lorraine Bracco is feeling better than ever!The star of "The Sopranos" and "Rizzoli and Isles" reveals she recently lost 35 pounds after coming to the realization that "I let myself go."The 59-year-old actress decided to change her lifestyle after caring for her parents before their deaths in 2010."We were sitting there, dividing these medications, who gets what when. It was insane. I watched and realized, 'I don't want to go like that,'" she tells ABC News. "I said, 'I want to be the best I could be.' I want to live every day the best I can be.""I started off very slow. My feeling is also, you sign up to go to the gym and you go to two classes and then you can't walk. It's just not the way to do it," Bracco says. "Now, I go to Pilates class three times a week. I »

First trailer for The Drop starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini

2 April 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, the first images from James Gandolfini’s (The Sopranos, Enough Said) final feature The Drop debuted and we now have the trailer, which you can check out below.

Previously titled Animal Rescue, the film follows Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) as an ex-con trying to go straight by working at a bar which serves as a drop point for money attached to what we can presume are gangsters. Gandolfini stars an older criminal who is having a hard time going straight, while Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) also features in the cast.

When first announced, the film had a far different tone than to what the trailer shows but Tom Hardy is an almost incomparable screen presence and this looks set to continue his impressive run in form. Take a look...

The Drop opens September 19th. »

Watch James Gandolfini's Final Performance In First Trailer For The Drop

2 April 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The short story Animal Rescue proved to be the launchpad for The Drop, the final film of the decorated career of the beloved James Gandolfini. The Sopranos legend has a supporting role in this Michael Roskam-directed film headlined by Tom Hardy, which like its inspiration is penned by Dennis Lehane. And now we have a trailer for The Drop, which opens on September 19th. And, well... this sure looks like a bleak September film. Hardy appears to be the soft-spoken bartender at a dirty New York establishment where mobsters exchange dirty laundry for filthy cash. Eventually, however, Hardy seems to have his fill of the corruption and the chaos, and he takes action to curtail their actions, though this inspires conflict with the bar owner played by Gandolfini. Presumably there is an injured puppy at the heart of the conflict, one that he and Noomi Rapace adopt. And if you »

“I’ve always wanted to do a home improvement show,” says Adam Carolla, while driving to a racetrack in Northern California. He got his wish with Spike TV’s Catch a Contractor, where Carolla, a licensed contractor named Skip Bedell and his detective wife lure deadbeat contractors to a house and confront them; the accused can either finish the job or endure a legal battle. “It sounded wildly uncomfortable to me because a lot of these guys are volatile and scary – and I just thought it'd definitely be the kind »

‘The Drop’ Trailer: Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini Take Care of Business

2 April 2014 5:17 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

If Breaking Bad has taught us anything, it’s that dealing with illegally obtained funds can be a real headache. Michaël R. Roskam’s new thriller The Drop – formerly known as Animal Rescue – is all about the flow of that crime cash and what happens when it gets disrupted.

Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini star in the first trailer for The Drop, which was penned by Dennis Lehane (Shutter Island) and is based on one of his short stories. Gandolfini sadly passed away last summer, and The Drop was his final film project. Though he’s best known for his role as New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano in HBO’s The Sopranos, this crime thriller sees him playing a loan shark turned bar owner who works on the periphery of New York’s ...

‘Mad Men’s’ Matthew Weiner: ‘Trust Me, I’m Going to Miss It More Than You Will’

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

The question came up the very first time Matthew Weiner sat before journalists at the Television Critics Assn. tour to promote the July 2007 premiere of “Mad Men.” How will it end? More specifically — how long did he see the time frame of the show running? Would he take the characters through the tumultuous decade of the 1960s? Or would Don Draper and Co. stay in the skinny ties and bouffant hairdos of the show’s 1960 beginnings?

Weiner deflected the question with a pragmatic answer that he hoped would hide how much it had caught him off guard.

“I said I didn’t know if there was going to be a second season — at that time we were only shooting the second episode,” Weiner recalls. “But I realized at that point that there is an expectation that I have a plan for this thing all the way to the end.”

Matthew Weiner Opens Doors for New Talent on ‘Mad Men’ Production Team

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

It’s no secret that “Mad Men” launched the careers of most of its stars — Jon Hamm was best known for a recurring role on “Providence” before he slipped into Don Draper’s suits. Whether casting virtual unknowns like Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss or giving vets like Harry Hamlin and Julia Ormond a chance to shine (and land Emmy noms), creator Matt Weiner clearly has an eye for talent.

That knack for casting extends behind the scenes. Weiner is proud of having given many writers and directors their first big breaks during the seven-season run of the AMC drama. “The final season is being directed almost entirely by people who had their first episode here,” he says while walking the halls at L.A. Center Studios.

Production teams on long-running shows often become like family to one another, given the hours and dedication it takes to produce a drama series. »

'The Neighbors': Representing New Jersey fashion beyond mobsters in tracksuits

28 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's been 15 years since "The Sopranos" put New Jersey style on display. And please don't be snide and ask, "What style?"

Beyond mobsters wearing tracksuits that make it only to tracks with horses, and the summer shore crowd, which has never met an animal print or bikini too outrageous, TV now gives us another highly stylized New Jersey group - aliens in golf duds.

ABC's Friday sitcom "The Neighbors" has aliens settled in a gated community in New Jersey, and their preferred attire is golf clothes.

The aliens have been on a steep learning curve.Initially, they feared Halloween and set up a barrier at the gates of Hidden Hills, hoping to keep children in costumes at bay. After the Weavers (Jami Gertz, Lenny Venito) explain the American custom of costumed children begging candy from strangers, the aliens relent. Above, Jackie takes on Effie Trinket from "The Hunger Games" in a custom-made costume. »
