Jake Gyllenhaal Reacts to ‘Jake Doing Things’ Memes: ‘Sandwiches Are Hilarious!’

22 September 2017 7:03 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t afraid to poke fun at himself. On Wednesday, he appeared on Conan where host Conan O’Brien noted that the Oscar-nominated actor keeps it so old school that he doesn’t have any social media.

“I’m a drag and drop kinda guy. I don’t know shorthand commands,” Gyllenhaal, 36, admitted. “I don’t like ‘Command Whatever’ to get the thing. I just take my mouse and drag it over. And my friends are generally embarrassed.”

O’Brien then noted that though Gyllenhaal keeps it old school, many of his fans are active on social media, referencing one meme account called “Jake Doing Things” that posts photos of the actor marveling at everyday life.

In one group of photos, a 2009 Gyllenhaal was amazed by the falling snow.

‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 5 Is Happening, Confirms ‘Clingy Netflix Exec’ — Watch

21 September 2017 9:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Your favorite depressed talking horse is set to return. Netflix just announced that “BoJack Horseman” has been picked up for a fifth season, meaning we’ve yet to see the last of the ’90s sitcom star whose present day veers between the profound and the profane — often within the span of a single episode. The streaming service announced the news with a quick video, which you may avail yourself of below.

‘American Vandal’: The Creators Discuss That Ending and the Lessons for a Potential Season 2

20 September 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The below interview includes spoilers for “American Vandal” Season 1.]

When you think about it, “American Vandal” could have only ended one way. Like its many docuseries predecessors, the question of Dylan Maxwell’s (Jimmy Tatro) innocence or guilt may have powered the story forward, but as the show fleshed out characters like amateur sleuth Peter Maldonado, his partner in videography Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck), or the multitude of students and teachers who make this universe, there was always room to make the season’s ending something less tangible.

In the farewell episode, Twitch-based evidence leads Dylan to be exonerated in the minds of Peter and the school powers that threatened his expulsion in the first place. But if Dylan wasn’t the one who drew the dicks, who was?

For fans of true crime documentaries, “We may never know” isn’t just an appropriate answer, it’s the only one that made sense for a series that pays tribute to the classics. »

A Double Dose of Noah Baumbach Comes to Netflix Next Month, Plus ‘Before Midnight,’ ‘Donnie Darko,’ and More

20 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While October usually signals the arrival of all sorts of spooky, creepy, scary, and otherwise appropriately Halloween-themed films to both theaters and streaming services, this month’s batch of new titles on Netflix offers up a delightfully wide variety of choices that aren’t all tied to the year’s primary celebration of fear. Sure, those titles are there — from more mainstream chillers like “Cult of Chucky” and the new original “The Babysitter,” to more offbeat picks like the cannibal coming-of-age tale “Raw” and the seminal “Donnie Darko” — but this month’s incoming list has more than enough for movie fans who don’t want to shriek at their televisions.

‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ Trailer: Adam Sandler is ‘Punch-Drunk Love’ Great in Noah Baumbach’s Latest

20 September 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The Meyerowitz Stories” earned strong reviews at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, where IndieWire named it one of Noah Baumbach’s best movies. The family dysfunction drama is set to reenter the awards conversation by heading to the New York Film Festival in just a week, and now Netflix has debuted the official trailer.

‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ Trailer: Frank Castle Is Ready to Avenge His Family One Bullet at a Time

20 September 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When “Marvel’s Daredevil” introduced Frank Castle in Season Two of the series, fans had every right to be skeptical. The violent, anti-hero of the comics had faltered in two previous big screen interpretations, but the third time was truly the charm. Jon Bernthal’s tortured and disgraced war hero blazed a bloody and bullet-ridden trail through Hell’s Kitchen, bringing along an intriguing mystery and backstory that eventually lured Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) onto his side.

’30 Rock’: The 25 Episodes You Need to Watch Before Tina Fey’s Iconic Comedy Leaves Netflix

19 September 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Picking favorites when it comes to “30 Rock” is an awful proposition because the whole series, barring a handful of exceptions, remains an extremely watchable and fascinating comedic journey. But with the show leaving Netflix at the beginning of October (and thus becoming completely unstreamable), we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to choose favorites.

Twenty-five episodes equates to less than 10 hours, so you should be able to make the time before September 30. And the adventures of Liz Lemon, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Jack Donaghy, and beyond are worth it.

“Tracy Does Conan

Season 1, Episode 7

The first season of “30 Rock” was a bit rocky, but “Tracy Does Conan” does a few important things: It introduces Dr. Leo Spaceman (Chris Parnell), casts Conan O’Brien as himself, and features Aubrey Plaza as an NBC page (a job she actually held in real life). More importantly, it features a breathless sense of anarchy, »

‘Neo Yokio’ Review: This Futuristic Netflix Story is The Greatest Robot Butler Anime of 2017

19 September 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the broad scope of anime history, it would be inaccurate (and maybe even a little unfair) to call “Neo Yokio” an unprecedented series. But you’d be hard-pressed to find a batch of six TV episodes with quite the same subject matter overlap as the latest Netflix animated effort. Starring the voice talents of Jaden Smith and executive produced by Ezra Koenig, “Neo Yokio” is a hyperspecific blend of neo-futurist metropolises, prep school drama, and high-society intrigue, all with a dash of field hockey and weekend jaunts to the Hamptons. The result is a bespoke anime that’s confounding at times, but always in search of new layers to its insulated universe.

Wisely, “Neo Yokio” doesn’t spend more than a narrated intro explaining the origins of its title city, an alternate futurist New York of sorts. Instead it revels in a slew of off-kilter details in the life »

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Donnie Darko”

15 September 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Donnie Darko was by and large a disturbing movie and a creepy look into the face of madness that can come when you’re least expecting it. Being told the world is going to end in 28 days is something you simply don’t think to hear when you walk out of your home on any given day. But the tidal wave of events that comes after only makes things worse as Donnie eventually starts to go mad in the worst way possible. The terror and destruction that run rampant after that have been remembered since the release of the movie, and

‘It’ (2017) Review

8 September 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I was born in April 1981. My mother was an avid reader and one author that she constantly bought books from was Stephen King. Later, I would take the books that she previously read and I would attempt to read them. In 1994, after watching the ABC Miniseries which I taped and watched repeatedly, I decided to start reading my mom’s hand-me-down paperback of It. It took me three months to read it. However, at such a young age, I’m not sure I comprehended everything, especially some of the more adult nature of the book.

Fast forward to 2017 and we have a honest-to-god Rated R adaptation of Stephen King’s novel – well the first part anyway. There is no doubt that this was a highly anticipated film. Not just for horror fans but general audiences as well. In the 80’s, Stephen King was a sensation. People who had no interest in horror, »

10 Actors Who Could Play The Joker In the Upcoming Origin Movie

29 August 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe takes a look at ten actors who could play the Clown Prince of Crime in the upcoming Joker origin movie…

News broke last week that The Hangover director Todd Phillips would be directing a Joker origin movie, produced by Martin Scorsese and not taking place inside the Dceu. The news has been met with a cautious optimism, as despite the talent involved in the film, fans are finding it difficult to shake the image of Jared Leto’s Joker from last year’s Suicide Squad movie. 

The good news, though, is that Leto will not be involved with the movie and that the role will be recast yet again for the movie. Taking on the role of The Joker is no easy task however and getting the casting correct will be key here. Here is a look at ten actors who could take on the iconic role.

Parenthood isn’t always easy — which is something Jena Malone can attest to.

The 32-year-old mother of one got super honest on Instagram Wednesday, writing a caption about “motherhood, depression and self worth” to accompany an artistic, blurry photo of herself and son Ode Mountain, 14 months.

“I don’t have anything beautiful to say. Except that this struggle is real,” wrote the Sucker Punch actress. “The sharp edges are too much to hold without compassion.”

“I’m struggling with this. Compassion for myself and this moment of growth in my life,” she adds. “I know I am not alone in this. »
