Carrie Bradshaw's alter-ego is looking to stage a comeback at HBO. Sarah Jessica Parker is close to signing a deal that would have her headlining a new comedy for Sex and the City's former home, People confirms. Parker, 49, would play a wife who's embarking upon a very long and drawn-out divorce. She'll also executive producer the comedy with actress-writer Sharon Horgan (who penned the pilot script), Paul Simms, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan. In October, Parker and her former Sex castmates - tortured - played with fans by hinting at a third movie installment of the popular franchise. The »

First of all, Happy Holidays everyone. For this week’s new spotlight piece, I wanted to cite a modern A-lister who also happens to have some classical charm to him. It’s Bradley Cooper, a newly minted leading man who’s continuing to impress the more we get to see from him. He was once considered a pretty boy of sorts, someone you’d never expect to be an Oscar favorite, but in the span of less than a decade, he’s gone from a lightweight to an absolute A-list star, one who’s now considered basically due for an Academy Award. As such, he’s more than a perfect candidate for the spotlight today. Cooper got his start mostly on television (though he did appear in the film Wet Hot American Summer), showing up in things like Sex and the City, where he made his debut. There were also »

The "Entourage" movie trailer has been online for about twenty minutes at this point, and I've already seen a remarkable divide emerge between people who are excited for it and think it looks awesome and people who are making jokes about needing to shower in Valtrex after seeing the trailer. If nothing else, then, it seems like they've upped the production value of "Entourage" just based on this first glimpse at the way the movie looks. Just that opening bit, from what I assume is the movie within the movie, looks like a real movie, something that they never quite pulled off on the show, no matter how hard they tried. By now, anyone who has had any exposure to the series knows how they feel about it. I consider "Entourage" one of those lifestyle porn shows, and if you watch it because you like the fantasy of being a »

The movie that nobody really needed is finally here in the first trailer for the Entourage movie. Granted, I enjoyed the first few seasons of the HBO series starring Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, and Jeremy Piven, but much like the Sex And The City movie, this just feels unnecessary. Even the opening sequence from the movie-within-the-movie Hyde feels like it is trying too hard. But, then we get to see everyone from Ari and Turtle acting like their normal »

Onetime Sex partners Sarah Jessica Parker and HBO are looking to reunite by way of Divorce.
TVLine has learned that Parker is nearing a deal to return to the pay cabler as the star of a potential new half-hour comedy series that tells the story of a very, very long divorce.
Parker would play one half of the troubled couple. She is also expected to serve as an exec producer alongside actress-writer Sharon Horgan (who penned the pilot script), Paul Simms, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan.
Parker’s possible Divorce pact with HBO comes a decade after Sex and the City ended its six-season run. »
Nearly 11 years after Sex and the City ended its run, star Sarah Jessica Parker is reteaming with HBO for a new comedy. HBO is near a pilot deal for Divorce, a comedy that would likely star and be produced by Parker, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Divorce centers on a middle-aged woman (Parker), who, influenced by her two recently single friends, impulsively brings up the idea of divorce with her husband but then can't decide whether to actually go through with it — until her husband discovers the affair she's been having and calls the marriage off.

Ever since Sex and the City first aired in 1998, it has served as the ultimate guide for the young and hopeful — those with their studio apartments, their burgeoning collection of Manolos and Louboutins, and their never-ending quest to find true love in a city of 14 million. From cupcakes to Cosmos to the rising rents in Manhattan, the series indelibly shaped our image of New York City — as well as our idea of the smart, funny, sexually active women who lived in it.And as crude as its rendering of sex, gender, and marriage could be, the show did have the uncanny ability to make great caricatures from some of the most elemental worlds of New York City. From the clubby publishing elite to the catty fashion publicists to the gentrifying forces of Brooklyn, it poked fun at a way of life that can only happen here. One of those worlds, »

Hanukkah is halfway over and Christmas is next week. Traditionally, columnists with no ideas use this as an opportunity to recommend gift ideas that, ideally, benefits themselves, their families or their friends.
Here’s the thing. I don’t know your gift-giving needs. I don’t know your friends. I don’t know your tastes, and your budget is none of my business. These are books that, if I didn’t already own them and love them, I would want to get. If they are new to you, I envy the good times you have ahead.
I want to start off with Mimi Pond because, well, I know her a little bit and this will make me seem important. She and I both freelanced for the fashion section of The Village Voice back in the late seventies and early eighties. Fashion was like the ugly stepchild at the paper, not »

Hale hailed the show for its Sex and the City treatment of the classical music world, and for what he referred to as its “tremendous ace up its sleeve”: Gael Bernal Garcia’s performance. Fresh off starring in Jon Stewart’s Rosewater, Bernal plays “a hotshot conductor who’s equally narcissistic and sincere” in Mozart.
At the series’ New York premiere at Alice Tully Hall, Bernal told The Hollywood Reporter he’s become a fan of the Symphony since shooting the series, and hinted as to what they’re up against in the dramedy: “They are struggling to make themselves relevant, and they have that problem because they feel they are only catering to affluent people, »
“That’s really me,” Leslie Bibb tells ETonline of Frannie, the makeup-free goofball seen on screen.
Probably most famous for her two short-lived TV series—Ryan Murphy’s teen soap, Popular, on the now defunct WB network and ABC’s Gcb with Kristen Chenoweth—and her supporting roles in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and the Iron Man franchise, the 41-year-old actress has built a career on playing stunningly beautiful characters with fierce attitudes. But now, she’s letting that all go in favor of a more earnest persona.
“It was scary at times. It was like, ‘Here I am,’ ” Bibb says. Terrified at first, the actress found new personal freedom once she learned not to fight her disheveled appearance. “It was really »

In the vast majority of the television-specific Golden Globe categories, you can count on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to do two things: (1) rally around old favorites — they have a ton of repeat nominees every year; and (2) champion a brand-new show — they love to be first!, as they were with Sex and the City, Girls and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among many others, even if they often dump those shows the next year. In other words, don’t expect the second or third season of a show to land it recognition for the first time.
The 2014 Golden Globe nominations, announced on Thursday morning, only reinforced these “rules.”

Just as a fair warning, I’m currently writing this review under the influence of alcohol, because The Pyramid didn’t think a press screening was necessary, or provide any Thursday night/midnight public releases before its December 5th release date. While I desperately try not to let such aggravating situational roadblocks cloud my judgement, what’s a critic supposed to think when a December horror movie refuses early screenings, Thursday night conveniences, and even midnight horror crowds?!
Editor’s Note: Decided to sleep off the alcohol. I’m now awake, and after soberly running through The Pyramid in my head, I can still confirm it’s the equivalent of dogshit crusted to the bottom of your shoe that takes about an hour and a half to scrape off. Let’s proceed, shall we?
The Pyramid kicks in after a team of American archeologists (Merica!) uncover a hidden pyramid underneath mounds of sand, »

[Warning: Mild spoilers ahead for Take Care.] Getting hit by a car is not funny. But surviving a car accident with only a broken arm and leg and being trapped in your walk-up New York City apartment, after you manage to figure out how to get up the stairs, and getting your ex-boyfriend to take care of you as you recover all create the foundation for former Sex and the City writer Liz Tuccillo's directorial debut, the unconventional romantic comedy Take Care. It was those atypical elements that Thomas Sadoski — who plays Devon, the ex-boyfriend

Oh snap! Liz Tuccillo, a writer for Sex and the City, confessed during an interview with HuffPost Live that she didn't want Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mr. Big (Chris Noth) to end up together when the HBO series ended after six seasons. "Michael Patrick King was like, 'Let's talk about if they should stay together in the end,'" Tuccillo, who is behind upcoming romance Take Care, recalled. "We were all, like, fighting and arguing, and I was actually somebody who didn't think she should be with [...] »
