The corporate world can be Hell, but according to Adult Swim’s horror sitcom "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell," Hell is a lot like the corporate world. Filled with demon bosses, deadlines, and cubicles of doom.
As the series' season finale, “People in Hell Want Ice Water,” approaches at the stroke of midnight tonight (5/23), it was about time we got a bit of insight into the men behind the madness and red face paint. The show’s creators, Dave Willis and Casper Kelly, alums of Adult Swim series "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" and "Squidbillies," and cast members Matt Servitto ("The Sopranos," "The Mentalist"), Craig Rowan ("College Humor Originals," "The Onion Sportsdome"), and Henry Zebrowski ("Girls," Martin Scorsese’s upcoming The Wolf of Wall Street) sat down to discuss the origins of their diabolically funny series.
The show’s creation, according to Kelly, came from an earlier Kelly/Willis »

Cinema has historically considered itself superior to television, with executives and critics frequently sneering that a movie or documentary has a "made-for-tv" feel. But a number of significant Hollywood film-makers – including David Lynch, Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone – have moved to the junior medium for mini-series or documentaries and now Steven Soderbergh has paid a compliment, if a slightly qualified one, to home entertainment. "In terms of cultural real estate," Soderbergh said at the Cannes film festival, "TV has really taken control of the conversation that used to be the reserve of movies. It's sort of a second golden age of television, which is great for the viewers. … If you like your stories to go narrow and deep, TV is exciting. »

In fact, the disabled community views the casting choice as an offensive one.
"This would be like being in the '50s and having a white guy do blackface, at this point," "Sons of Anarchy" star Kurt Yaeger -- who lost his left leg after a motorcycle accident -- told The Wrap. "You need to start having disabled people playing disabled characters. Period."
However, some are applauding NBC for putting a character in a wheelchair and a character with Parkinson's ("The Michael J. Fox Show") at the forefront of its upcoming series. "NBC is putting two shows on air that feature characters with physical limitations, moving a kind of character who’s often relegated to supporting roles -- and who’s often there »

With one broken relationship still fresh in her mind, Kathleen Sullivan (Young) is in no mood to take on a new boyfriend. Larry (Day) however will not tolerate sexual rebuffs; rape is his means of exercising what he regards as a male prerogative. Consumed by anger and hungry for vengeance, Kathleen now finds she must take matters into her own hands.
The film debut of Karen Young, who would later go on to star in Birdy, Daylight and The Sopranos, is an uncompromising look at America’s hand gun culture through the eyes of a school teacher coming to terms with being raped. Helmed by British director Tony Garnett in the heart of Texas using a mix of actors and local people, Handgun is unlike any other rape/revenge thriller that has come before or since… »

Fans of cable television shows like "Boardwalk Empire" should have no trouble recognizing actor Michael Zegen. Part of the next generation of "that guys" -- those character actors who show up in what seems like everything -- Zegen has appeared on "The Sopranos," "How To Make It In America," "Rescue Me," "The Walking Dead," and, most recently, the aforementioned "Boardwalk Empire," where he plays mobster Bugsy Siegel. This week, Zegen co-stars in Noah Baumbach's new film "Frances Ha" as Benji, a nice guy who becomes friend and roommate to the title character (Greta Gerwig), a 27-year-old modern dancer struggling with life in New York.
"When we would do the scenes, I would watch playback and I knew it was something special," Zegen told HuffPost Entertainment about the film, which premiered last year on the festival circuit to rave reviews and hits theaters in limited release on May 17. The black »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on Fox.
While "The Following" proved a breakout winner, Fox had few success stories last season. So, it is going a bit more ambitious this year with numerous dramas, comedies and one-off "event series".
Several pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the family of government-sanctioned assassins drama "Boomerang," the adaptation of Lauren Oliver's book trilogy "Delirium" about a world where love is illegal, the legal interns workplace comedy "To My Assistant," the U.S.S. Lexington-set "The Wild Blue," and "The List" about the hunt for a thief who stole a file containing the secret identities of people in the Witness Security Program,

It's official: the Girl With the Yellow Umbrella" is in fact "How I Met Your Mother's" titular mother. Fans have been waiting eight long seasons to learn who the woman Ted Mosby settles down with is, and after countless fakeouts and teases, the Season 8 finale revealed actress Cristin Milioti is that woman.
"Part of what helped us is our casting director Marisa [Ross], she sort of has been talking about Cristin for two years now," Bays tells Entertainment Weekly. "It helped that she turned us onto her and then the more we got to know Cristin and see her work, the more we realized, Yeah, she's the right choice. So that definitely helped, because we didn't »
Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

This is a recap. There are spoilers.
The Season 8 finale of "How I Met Your Mother" did something refreshingly unexpected -- after eight seasons of teases, jukes and other delays, the final scene introduced us to Ted's wife-to-be.
Say hello to the Mother, or "Girl With the Yellow Umbrella" as she's billed in the credits. The character name isn't yet another fakeout -- a CBS rep confirms to Zap2it that she is, in fact, the woman Ted has been telling us about for eight years.
The actress' name is Cristin Milioti. She's a Tony nominee this year for her work in the musical "Once." You may also know her from an episode of "30 Rock" ("Tgs Hates Women") where she played the Sarah Silverman-esque writer/comedian Abby Flynn, or from a few episodes of "The Sopranos" in which she played Johnny Sack's daughter.

The season-eight finale of How I Met Your Mother aired this week, and while we didn't get to see Barney and Robin's wedding, we got something even better - a glimpse of the mother! Not just her boots, not just her umbrella, but a long look at her face in all her her soon-to-be-motherly glory. I don't want to spoil it completely, but to find out who she is, just read more. So the actress is Cristin Milioti, who hasn't been seen in much (other than on Broadway, where she was nominated for a Tony for her work in Once). You may recognize her from The Sopranos or an episode of 30 Rock, but she's a relative newcomer aside from that. I'm a bit torn; part of me wishes they had cast a better-known actress, especially considering the runners-up have included Jennifer Morrison and Rachel Bilson. On the other hand, it's »

"How I Met Your Mother" finally revealed the woman beneath the yellow umbrella in the season finale -- and it's someone you've probably never heard of.
After eight seasons, the mother turned out to be an actress by the name of Cristin Milioti. Milioti has had guest spots on "30 Rock" (she was "sexy baby" Abby Flynn) and "The Sopranos" but is perhaps best known for her Tony-nominated role in the Broadway musical "Once."
Naturally, she was spotted paying for a ticket to Farhampton, which "Himym" fans learned in the season premiere would be a pivotal place for Ted and his future bride.
It remains to be seen how the character credited only as "woman with umbrella" will evolve in the show's ninth and final season, but it's interesting that the producers avoided stunt-casting for the role, which will hopefully allow viewers to focus on the character instead of the person playing her. »
