‘Walking Dead’ Actor Seth Gilliam Arrested for DUI

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth Gilliam, who plays Rev. Gabriel Stokes on AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Sunday in Peachtree City, Georgia.

Gilliam was pulled over for driving 107 mph in a 55-mph zone, according to police. He was arrested after police discovered a marijuana cigarette in his car. At Fayette County Jail, Gilliam was charged with DUI, drug possession and speeding.

Peachtree City is about 30 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta. Filming for season six of “The Walking Dead” was under way in nearby Senoia, Georgia.

Gilliam’s trouble with the law might not be too shocking. According to Brett Martin’s book “Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos to Mad Men to Breaking Bad,” Gilliam has generated a reputation for this sort of behavior. During his time on “The Wire,” Gilliam was reportedly part of a “core group »

‘Mad Men’ Q&A: ‘Lost Horizon’ Director Phil Abraham Talks ‘Precision’ Moments (Spoilers)

22 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Next to Matt Weiner, nobody knows the look and feel of “Mad Men” better than Phil Abraham. He was the cinematographer on the pilot, and he made an auspicious debut as a director for the series with 2007’s “The Hobo Code.” Abraham took a break from helming an episode of AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire” in Atlanta on Monday evening to talk about directing his final “Mad Men” episode, the May 3 installment “Lost Horizon,” from a razor-sharp script by Semi Chellas and Weiner.

This episode had so many pause-worthy moments for Joan, Don, Peggy and Roger. Did you know that going in or did it evolve as you were shooting?

Mad Men” is different than any other show because the objective is to create those moments on camera and define them in a precise way. They are so special and so carefully crafted by the writers. As a director »

In another piracy-busting move, the creative team behind Super Awesome! plan to launch the musical comedy on iTunes and other VOD platforms on May 29, the same day as the world premiere in Toronto.

Guy Edmonds and Matt Zeremes, who co-wrote and co-directed the mico-budgeted film, play struggling actors who are given one last chance to prove themselves by staging a musical, Honey I.m Homeless.

The theme is marriage equality, a topic about which the naïve, straight guys know next to nothing.

The self-funded $60,000 film will premiere at the 25th Annual Inside Out Toronto Lgbt Film Festival, arranged by the international sales agent, French- based Outplay.

The cast includes Simon Burke (who performs the signature song Man to Man), Patrick Brammall, Rob Carlton, Annie Maynard and New York actor Vinnie Vella, whose credits include Casino, The Sopranos and Coffee and Cigarettes.

Walk of Fame Honoree Julianna Margulies Makes ‘Good’

1 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though she’s one of the biggest stars in the medium thanks to “ER” and “The Good Wife,” Julianna Margulies grew up not allowed to watch TV.

“I came from a very artistic family, and we weren’t allowed to watch TV, so we put on plays all the time and used our imagination to entertain,” Margulies said in a previous interview of growing up the youngest of three daughters in Spring Valley, N.Y. It wasn’t until her freshman year at Sarah Lawrence College that she truly realized her calling as an actor.

Margulies was cast in David Rabe’s “In the Boom Boom Room,” playing a go-go dancer. “I just remember this feeling opening night — I was in my little cage with my boots on and I got this overwhelming sense of belonging somewhere,” recalled Margulies. “It was really overwhelming and it just all fell together after that. »

DVD Review: "Zarra's Law" (2014) Starring Tony Sirico

30 April 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

When The Sopranos ended its run on HBO in June 2007, fans were forced to say goodbye to one of television’s greatest series. It is a difficult thing to bid farewell to characters you have come to know and enjoy watching, and Tony Soprano and his extended family and crew were no exception. Fortunately, most of the people who appeared on the show have gone on to other projects, some in a similar vein and others one hundred and eighty degrees removed from the actions of La Cosa Nostra. Actor Tony Sirico, who portrayed Pauley Walnuts since the series began in 1999, was himself involved in some criminal behavior and did less than two years in jail prior to becoming an actor. While the Internet Movie Database lists his first screen credit as appearing in The Godfather Part II (1974) - his appearance is both unconfirmed and uncredited - »

‘Mad Men': 5 Insights From Matthew Weiner’s Q&A With Richard Lagravenese

28 April 2015 10:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The latest stop on “Mad Men’s” farewell tour was New York’s 92nd Street Y, where writer-director Richard Lagravenese conducted a Q&A and love-fest Tuesday night with series creator Matthew Weiner.

The two traded compliments at the start, but it was clear Lagravenese is a hard-core “Mad Men” fan. At one point he was rendered speechless while trying to describe how much he admired a particular line of dialogue in the episode “The Arrangement” (the one with the trust-fund kid trying to launch a Jai Alai empire).

Among the insights that Lagravenese and audience questioners drew out of Weiner:

The “Mad Men” character that Weiner would most like to have a cup of coffee with in 2015: Trudy Campbell. “I just think she would be a dynamite old lady,” he said. Weiner’s favorite episode of the show is “probably ‘Maidenform,’ ” from season two. The secret formula that »

The 5 Best Moments from the 'Goodfellas' Anniversary Reunion Screening

27 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One look around New York's Beacon Theatre this past Saturday night told you it wasn't just another night at the Beacon. To close the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, much of the cast and crew of Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas reunited for a remastered screening of the film followed by a Q&A (hosted by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart) featuring Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino and screenwriter Nick Pileggi.  The Beacon was packed with fictional big-screen wiseguys, many of whom played a role in Goodfellas, as well as The Sopranos and other mob-related movies and TV shows that have filmed in New York over the years. The room was buzzing, and when Robert De Niro (who played wiseguy Jimmy Conway in the Scorsese classic...

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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? »

Read More: Meet the 2015 Tribeca Filmmakers #24: Nick Sandow Tries to Mess with the Gangster Genre in 'The Wannabe' With the backing of Martin Scorsese as executive producer, and a cast of heavyweights including Oscar winner Patricia Arquette, anticipation is building after the Tribeca premiere of "The Wannabe."

‘Mad Men’ Creator Matt Weiner on Turning Early Critics’ Barbs Into Success

17 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As AMC prepares to air the “Mad Men” finale May 17, the show’s creator, Matt Weiner, harks back to his debut, 1996 microbudget film “What Do You Do All Day?” that he wrote, produced, directed and starred in. A Variety critic slammed the picture, but Weiner talked about how that whole experience fueled his subsequent work.

Talk about your early career.

I made an independent film before I started my life in television, and it actually helped me get my career started. It was a $12,000 movie. I’m in it, my wife’s in it, my car’s in it. It’s a strung-together, black-and-white movie. We sent it off to some film festivals, it premiered at Santa Barbara, and Variety ran a review.

Did you read Variety in those days?

I grew up in Los Angeles, and Variety has this sort of iconic quality. To be in Variety seemed to »

Wigging Out: Great pop culture hairpiece moments from 'Americans,' 'Melrose' & more

16 April 2015 4:16 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last night's "The Americans" included a moment where one of the spies removed their wig to dramatic effect. Between that and a similar "How to Get Away with Murder" scene from earlier this season, it's been quite the year for powerful wig removals. That has me thinking about other moments from TV and movies that drew big emotion — or comedy — from wigs or toupees coming off at a particular moment, including (loads of old show spoilers coming, involving both lack of hair and, at times, lack of life), with links or embeds where available... "Melrose Place": Kimberly lets her hair down In the show that defined watercooler television for much of the '90s, no moment was crazier, or more talked about, than Marcia Cross's Kimberly revealing the literal scars she wears that will lead her to wreak vengeance on Michael and so many other residents of that apartment complex. »

We Need to Stop Asking David Chase to Explain That 'Sopranos' Ending

15 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The smash cut to black, that black hole of an ending, is one of the best things about "The Sopranos," the series that spawned the Golden Age of television almost two decades ago and yet still rivals the cultural reach and meme-worthiness of "Game of Thrones," "Mad Men," "True Detective" and "Breaking Bad." David Chase, who has yet to achieve something so towering since the show ended in 2007, finally owned up critically to the last scene in DGA Quarterly with a cleverly wending shot-by-shot analysis that of course circumvents the central question gnawing at us all: does Tony Soprano die? It is unproductive to keep begging David Chase for an answer to this question. It's a mystery that Chase will never publicly dissolve, and one even the most ardent of close readers will never satisfyingly put to rest, so let's let it linger.

The Sopranos Ending, Shot By Shot, Not Explained By David Chase

15 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Like the spinning top before Inception, the finale to The Sopranos is (and should) be argued over for all time. Like the Journey song that glosses the sequence, it goes on and on and on and on. Tony is Schrodinger’s Gangster. But the question of his ultimate fate isn’t nearly as fascinating as David Chase‘s scene-by-scene breakdown of the show’s finale moments. The structure, the framing of the family all together for one last time, the casual ambiguity, and, yes, the on-the-nose nature that Chase swears by. Tony’s flipping through the jukebox; it’s almost like the soundtrack of his life, because he sees various songs. No matter what song we picked, I wanted it to be a song that would have been from Tony’s high school years, or his youth. That’s what he would have played. If you’re re-watching it, the rhythm is of unparalleled importance. The »

The Sopranos finale: David Chase doesn't owe us an explanation

15 April 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Eight years after wrapping up one of the best shows in TV history, its creator still finds himself having to justify its final scene – but there’s really no need

Mad Men is ending in several weeks and there is considerable pressure on Matthew Weiner to find a suitable way to end his groundbreaking series. Most of that pressure comes from the outsize reaction that his mentor, David Chase, unknowingly prevoked in 2007 when he ended The Sopranos with a famous scene that cuts away in the middle of the action leaving the audience to figure out Tony Soprano’s definite fate.

The decision was hotly contested at the time (thankfully Twitter didn’t exist back then), and it is still a sore spot among some fans and constantly debated whenever any big, important series eventually comes to a close. Eight years later, David Chase is still explaining himself and his decisions, »
