Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton Are Doing Great and 15 Things We Learned from Her Reddit Ama

17 July 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Nicole Richie — star of the new VH1 show, Candidly Nicole — delighted fans on Thursday when she sat down to answer just about anything during a Reddit Ama. The online Q&A series is notorious for connecting fans directly to their favorite stars and getting those unexpected (and candid) answers. Richie proved to be no different, taking on questions about her former Bff and The Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton (“It’s been great“), her father Lionel, and all things Britney Spears. (There were a lot of questions about Ms. Spears.)

We never expected to learn so much about the reality star but we’re happy we did.

Her Favorite Lionel Richie Song: “Ballerina Girl!”

Her Favorite Good Charlotte Song: “Harlow’s song.”

Her Craziest Memory From The Simple Life: “Simple Life was so fun for me. I was 21, and you know, going through these different experiences and doing it with my best friend, »

“Transparent” Reveals Family’s Transition When Dad Becomes Mom

Let’s make this clear from the start – this is not the first time actor Jeffrey Tambor has been in a dress.

If you’re a fan of the actor’s work over the years, he’s donned a dress in previous roles on Hill Street Blues and Arrested Development but during Saturday’s panel for the new Amazon series Transparent, the actor explained his role as a transgender husband/parent is new territory for him. “This is far different,” he said. “I think this is probably the most transforming experience I’ve had and had such depth. It also shows how far television has gone in terms of content and this is far more leveled and centered. And I feel very honored in bringing forth this whole subject…it’s really cool.”

Jill Soloway: The Rules About What Female Characters Would Do Are Super Antiquated

13 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Over the weekend at Amazon’s press tour in Los Angeles, Jill Soloway was asked if she was worried about the lack of sympathetic characters on her buzzy new family drama Transparent. (Vulture’s Margaret Lyons called the pilot sublime, and you can read more about it here and here.) First of all, Huh? Aren’t we past this question? Soloway is a veteran of the closely observed family dramas, having been a writer and executive producer on Six Feet Under and The United States of Tara. In any case, she had a pretty good answer:"The people who I believe in the most create work about people who are real. I’m also looking for truth, and I think that when people see truth in art, it resonates. Rootable women or likable women is a kind of trope that I was asked to be part of [while] working on getting »

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: When TV shows kill off dogs

13 July 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the first five minutes of The LeftoversJustin Theroux’s character jogs along the road when he spots a dog in the middle of the street and stops running to kneel down and pet the friendly pup. Aw, we say, what a sweet moment. Then, within seconds, boom: Someone shoots the dog dead. Thanks, HBO.

TV shows love killing dogs: There’s that Leftovers dog-murder that turns into a dog mass murder at the pilot’s end, there’s Frank Underwood strangling a hurt dog to its death in the House of Cards pilot, there’s Family Guy’s Brian. »

Is the Boring Gateway Character Worth It?

13 July 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jack Shephard was originally supposed to be played by Michael Keaton, and he was going to die in Lost’s pilot episode. After his death, the first to be killed by the smoke monster (that honor ended up going to the plane’s pilot, played by Greg Grunberg), Kate would take over as the leader and primary protagonist. This would have been surprising because it would buck conventions, killing off the heroic white male leader so that the female could take over.

J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof quickly changed their minds about Jack’s death, Keaton backed off so that Matthew Fox could become the character we all know, and the rest is history. Kate became just another supporting character in the show’s massive ensemble. The first thing we see in the actual pilot episode is Jack’s eye, and from that point on we stay mostly with him. »

Amazon Studios held court on Saturday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills, where they shared fresh sneak peeks at four of their new series — dramas Bosch and The After, and half-hours Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle — and then hinted at time frames for their respective launches.

With Horror TV Taking Over Networks, Jerry Asks: How About A Hideaway Series?

1 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While horror is dominating Television these days in everything from Hannibal, Penny Dreadful, and Bates Motel already airing, the upcoming series of Del Toro’s The Strain set to debut soon and god knows how many other shows being developed as I write this, I often ask myself: “Wouldn’t it be nice if this or that would be made into a series?”. With it being abundantly clear that execs are taking the turning of popular films and franchises into decent or downright awesome series (Anybody see Fargo? Wow), there are a handful of books and/or films that I think warrant a solid weekly, if not limited series run on TV. One example is the 1995 film adaption of my favorite Dean Koontz book of all time, his 1992 novel, Hideaway.

Hideaway tells the story of Hatch Harrison (played by Jeff Goldblum in the film), an antiques dealer, who gets into »

Review: HBO’s The Leftovers Is All Bleakness All the Time

27 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

HBO’s The Leftovers missed out on an obvious tagline: “From the co-creator of Lost comes a show about lost souls.” It’s rare to see a whole drama about ­despair, but that’s what this is: a series wherein an entire species struggles through grief. TV history is filled with shows built around characters who have suffered loss: widows, widowers, orphaned children. In some cases, the lens pulled back to take in extended families (Six Feet Under began with the death of the family’s patriarch) and communities (Twin Peaks was at its heart a show about one murder’s effect on a town). But after The Leftovers—in which a Rapture-like event disappears 2 percent of the world’s population, seemingly at random—I doubt the lens can pull back any farther.Based on Tom Perrotta’s novel of the same name, and co-created by him and Damon Lindelof, »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Director Jim Mickle on Cold in July and the Challenges in Film Financing

26 June 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Director Jim Mickle is beginning to form a reputation for himself, in constantly producing unique, creative productions, that can’t be confined to any one genre. Following on from We Are What Are, his latest, Cold in July, also epitomises this fact – though sadly such ingenuity can make his films somewhat difficult to sell to financiers.

“The fact it wasn’t a horror film made it tough,” he explained. “You can bend the rules a little more easily in horror and fans are more accepting, and financiers are a little more accepting. This is a little tougher because it had a foot in the horror genre, but also had a foot in so many other spots that people didn’t want to wholesale finance the thing because of that. There were so many years being so frustrated about this.”

Michael C Hall: 'I was always playing some fastidious control freak'

25 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Michael C Hall found fame in Six Feet Under, then spent eight years as serial killer Dexter. And he's not ready to put the corpses behind him yet. He tells Jonathan Romney about his return to the stage, Hodgkin's lymphoma and how to divorce your wife while you're filming together

You'd think that Michael C Hall would have had enough of death. He spent five years at the embalming table as sober, self-doubting undertaker David Fisher in the HBO TV series Six Feet Under, then eight as the anti-hero of Dexter, a forensics expert with a secret life as a serial killer. The 43-year-old North Carolina-born actor has become American TV's poster boy for death usually violent; with those series over, you'd think this would be a good time to try some nice decorous costume drama. But no: in the first 20 minutes of his new thriller Cold in July, there he is, »

Deepika Anushka Bipasha in three way battle

25 June 2014 3:35 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Bipasha Basu has now joined the battle which was earlier restricted to Deepika Padukone v/s Anushka Sharma. Her Creature would now be releasing on September 12, which is the same date for which Deepika's Finding Fanny and Anushka's NH10 have already been finalized. With each of the three films featuring these actresses in pivotal role, the clash becomes interesting and pretty unprecedented too. "Reason being that none of the three films follows a conventional Bollywood norm. Creature is a VFX laden affair on the lines of Godzilla and Jurassic Park, where a creature's presence in Bipasha's life creates havoc. Finding Fanny is a film in English-Hindi language and is centered on the hunt of a woman named 'Fanny' (which by the way is not played by Deepika). On the other hand, even though the plot of NH10 is currently being kept under the wraps, there are hints around the narrative bearing similarities to Kill Bill, »

Cold in July review: Michael C Hall stars in a smart and sinewy thriller

24 June 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jim Mickle; Screenwriter Nick Damici, Jim Mickle; Starring: Michael C Hall, Sam Shepard, Don Johnson, Vinessa Shaw, Nick Damici; Running time: 109 mins; Certificate: 15

With last year's We Are What We Are, director Jim Mickle produced a near-miracle – a remake of a recent classic that was not only acclaimed, but did something genuinely innovative with its source material. Finally arriving on screens after several years in the making, his fourth feature Cold in July is a gripping and stylish western noir that blends the small-town malevolence of David Cronenberg's A History of Violence with a sinewy B-movie efficiency that recalls other recent potboiler adaptations like The Lincoln Lawyer.

Michael C Hall is Richard Dane, a meek everyman whose life begins to come apart after he accidentally shoots dead an intruder in his home. "My finger slipped," he says blankly, too shell-shocked to accept any of the hero credit his »

Review: FX's 'Tyrant'

23 June 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The story behind the making of FX's new drama "Tyrant" is ultimately much more interesting than "Tyrant" itself. A lot of people came and went from this project, a lot of people fought for its future, and a lot of obvious stumbling blocks were ignored because there was a real passion to get it made. But the finished product doesn't suggest something nearly worth all the fussing and fighting. The story on the show (which debuts tomorrow night at 10): Bassam "Barry" Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) is the son of the dictator of a fictional Middle Eastern nation, has been living in self-imposed exile in America since his teenage years, and now works as a pediatrician in southern California, with an American wife Molly (Jennifer Finnigan) and teenage kids Emma (Anne Winters) and Sammy (Noah Silver). Reluctantly, he takes them to his homeland to attend his nephew's wedding, and dramatic events »

Blu-ray Review: Recent TV Releases Include ‘True Detective,’ ‘Masters of Sex’

22 June 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Game of Thrones” is over and you’ve already binged “Orange is the New Black,” what are you supposed to do now? There are a few interesting new programs this season – FX’s “Tyrant” & “The Strain,” HBO’s “The Leftovers,” CBS’s “Extant,” and a few more – but it’s also a great time to catch up what you may have missed with new Blu-ray and DVD releases. There are five TV-to-Blu-ray releases this month that might warrant a look.

The top of the pile is also the best program of 2014 to date, a show that has really redefined the year in that it’s already used as a watermark (“Sure, Fargo and The Americans were great but they were no True Detective.”) With fantastic performances from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, HBO has wasted no time in getting the wildly acclaimed “True Detective” on Blu-ray and DVD a »

10 reasons we used to love watching 'True Blood'

21 June 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Do your remember when you couldn't wait to watch "True Blood" every Sunday night? When Alan Ball's follow up to "Six Feet Under" was the campy, over-the-top fantasy melodrama everyone needed so we'd forget we had one more year of George Bush? That seems oh, so long ago, doesn't it? Many forget that at one time "True Blood" was a somewhat critically acclaimed show (O.K., that might be an overstatement, but it had its supporters).  It was nominated for the Emmy for best drama series in 2010. It earned the equivalent nomination at the Golden Globes and PGA Awards twice. Unfortunately, the last three seasons have been such a deterioration of quality that when HBO announced season seven would be the last there wasn't much protest from viewers let alone critics.   Of course, for a brief time "True Blood" was (to many of us) a Sunday night staple.  Bill's »

Should Your Interest In 'True Blood' Be Reborn for the Final Season?

20 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This Sunday, HBO's "True Blood," better known as the series that gave "Six Feet Under" creator Alan Ball an excuse to eroticize human/vampire sex on a level beyond Stephenie Meyers's sexiest dreams, begins its final season, to the sadness of some and the relief of others.  After all, some shows are cut short too soon, but some maybe outstay their welcome. In the case of "True Blood," the drama surrounding plucky psychic waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her friends, family and vampire lovers stopped being a must-watch around Season 3, when the show's need for twists and sexual misconduct began to strain credibility, and most viewers dropped off.   Disclosure: That includes me. I watched "True Blood" on the regular for its first three seasons, then drifted away for a number of forgotten reasons. But I dug into HBO's screeners for Season 7 this week armed with friends who have kept up with the show, »

Film Review: ‘Cut Bank’

18 June 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Watching an estimable quintet of character actors do their thing is the chief pleasure of “Cut Bank,” a largely routine thriller dressed up as a quirky small-town morality play. The feature helming debut of Matt Shakman, a former child actor turned prolific director of episodic television, does well by all but the youngest members of its core cast — a creative stumble that unfortunately leaves a gaping hole where the film’s heart should be. Quality supporting performances, including another excellent turn from Bruce Dern, aren’t enough to guarantee theatrical play after a Los Angeles Film Festival premiere, but should help boost the pic’s profile wherever it lands.

Disaffected young dude Dwayne (Liam Hemsworth) longs to leave the sleepy town of Cut Bank, Mont., notable only as the “coldest spot in the nation,” for sunnier surroundings. Employed as a mechanic by the no-nonsense father (Billy Bob Thornton) of his pretty pageant-queen-wannabe g. »
