Interview: Actor Paul Dooley of ‘Breaking Away,’ ‘Sixteen Candles’

21 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If there ever was a quintessential “Dad” in movies of the last generation, it would have to be Paul Dooley. The comedian and character actor is best known for portraying the patriarch in “Breaking Away” (1979) and “Sixteen Candles” (1984), but was also in director’s Robert Altman’s ‘ensemble’ and has had a stellar career.

The former “Paul Brown” was born in West Virginia, and studied acting at West Virginia University, before heading to New York City and a new career as Paul Dooley. He did stage work, stand-up comedy and the New York City version of The Second City (story below), before getting his big break in the original stage version of “The Odd Couple” in 1965, directed by the legendary Mike Nichols. While working the stage, he appeared in a number of commercials, eventually moving to Los Angeles to “be where the action is.”

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen

14 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"When did comedies become half-hour dramas?"

These words, uttered by Billy Eichner via the acid pen of Julie Klausner in the newly launched second season of her Hulu sitcom Difficult People, come from a place of love. Klausner loves TV like a mother loves her child – which is to say she always wants it to do and be better. A lifelong acolyte of the medium, she's spent most of her life hovering around its fringes – consuming it by the binge-ful, recapping shows online, eventually landing staff writing gigs here and there. »

Before the all-star group was strapping on proton packs and zapping ghosts — even before they appeared on “SNL” or “Gilmore Girls” — they made appearances in everything from strange short films to gay sketch shows. We’re taking it way back with a look at the early acting careers of the “Ghostbusters” gang.

Melissa McCarthy

“God” (1998)

In her first ever listed acting credit, McCarthy stars in a short film about a woman who has a very close relationship with God- as in, they talk on the phone for hours and share everything from juicy gossip to TV reruns. When that relationship turns sour, »

11 July 2016 7:24 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Enthuse over this. Cheryl Hines expects to feature in the ninth season of the Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show on HBO. Despite the fact that her character, Cheryl David, is divorced from Larry David's character. Hines co-starred as Dallas Royce on Suburgatory, which was cancelled by ABC after three seasons. She has done some recent voice work on Comedy Central's animated TripTank TV series.Of Curb Your Enthusiasm, EW reports Hines said, "As far as I know I am involved. I don’t know what the season is about or if I’m involved, but I texted Larry and he said if I’m not too busy he wants me to be in it. So, that’s all I know." That sounds pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.Read More… »

11 July 2016 4:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Seinfeld” is long gone, but Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is finally set to return for a ninth season, “Veep” is as funny as ever and Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” remains an entertaining diversion as well. Seinfeld’s next guest in the web series — which, as you might have deduced, features comedians in cars getting coffee — is Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels. Watch a brief preview of their encounter below.

Michaels starts things off by saying he’s “very happy” to be part of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”; when asked by Seinfeld if he means it, he quickly admits, “no.” He’s next seen questioning the show’s very format, though his apparent confusion seems quickly assuaged as the two sit down for coffee and discuss Dana Carvey. »

Maya & Marty: Best and Worst Sketches With Amy Poehler, Will Forte, Seinfeld

5 July 2016 8:48 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Maya & Marty on Tuesday was pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good just Ok.

The penultimate hour of the Peacock’s variety experiment featured Jerry Seinfeld’s sit-down with Jiminy Glick and Martin Short doing his (best?) Larry David impersonation. (Fun fact: This evening marks the 27th anniversary of Seinfeld, so it was quite fitting that the comedian put in an appearance on his former network.)

Ranking Larry David’s Best Enemies On ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

29 June 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David somehow manages to make everyone hate him. Whether it’s a matter of lack of tact, lack of self-awareness or otherwise, he somehow finds enemies wherever he goes. With HBO announcing that Curb is coming back for its ninth season, it seemed like it was the right time to review just some of the nemeses Larry has made through the years. Check out the video above or below (your choice) and see some of our favorites. »

Noah Hawley says that Fargo may go the route of Louie with irregular seasons

28 June 2016 5:29 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

As you know, most television series produce a season each year and typically it works out fairly well. There are some out there, either members of the audience or the show's creators, who wish that certain shows would be allowed to just pump the breaks every so often and refuel. In the case of Louis C.K. with Louie or Larry David with Curb Your Enthusiasm, they're lucky enough not to have... Read More »

Matchmaking Dad Takes Out an Ad to Get His 48-Year-Old Son Hitched: 'If You Like to Wear Heels, It May Not Work'

24 June 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Last week, Baron Brooks couldn't figure out why his phone wouldn't stop ringing and why his Facebook page had suddenly been flooded with messages from available women wanting to date him. It would have been a nice problem for a single Jewish guy to have, except for one thing: The women were calling because they'd seen Baron's picture in a $900 ad taken out in an Idaho newspaper by his father, Arthur Brooks, 78, of Beverly Hills, California, who is determined to "marry off" his son and get a few more grandchildren. When Baron, 48, a Salt Lake City health food broker, realized what had happened, »

Fuller On When We May See More "Hannibal"

23 June 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Attending the 42nd Saturn Awards in Burbank, "Hannibal" creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller was asked about whether fans of the cancelled drama should hold out hope for a fourth season somewhere down the line.

Those involved have all indicated a willingness to return even if it doesn't come together for a few years, and Fuller kept up that message this week, telling Collider:

"The cast is game, I'm game, it's just a matter of finding the right time where everybody's schedules sync up, but I would love to continue to tell the story with Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen. They're such a fantastic collaborators, and one of the most satisfying actor-showrunner relationships I've ever had in this industry. So I would love to continue this story."

Fuller even went into describing something of a timeline as to when it might come around again due to current streaming rights deals and »

Silicon Valley season 3 interview: Judge, Middleditch & Berg

22 June 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 11, 2016

We chatted to the creators and star of the terrific Silicon Valley about season 3, cringe comedy and making HBO's lawyers nervous...

Had Mike Judge spent less of his youth playing guitar and more playing videogames, Silicon Valley might never have existed. HBO originally approached the Office Space, Beavis & Butt-Head and King Of The Hill creator about making a comedy based around games designers. No expert in that world, Judge instead mined his own brief experience as a coder in the late eighties to create the story of Richard Hendricks, a chronically anxious genius programmer thrown into the obscene wealth and volatile politics of Silicon Valley.

For three seasons, with a fourth confirmed to arrive next year, Hendricks' story has provided Judge and co. with the scope to satirise not only modern tech giants, but also to write a recognisable workplace comedy about a pack of underdogs attempting »
