Amy Schumer: Rape Victim-Shaming Like 'Salem Witch Trials'

19 August 2016 8:54 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Amy Schumer has spoken out against victim-shaming and criticized Inside Amy Schumer writer Kurt Metzger after he defended a fellow comedian accused of sexual assaults. "[Metzger] gets something from going after people, making them mad. That is not representative of me at all," Schumer told Charlie Rose.

The controversy stems from Metzger's stream of abrasive, baiting Facebook posts in defense of friend and fellow comedian Aaron Glaser, who was recently banned from the comedy theatre Upright Citizens Brigade following accusations of sexual assault. In Metzger's Facebook posts, the comedian questioned the »

Marcia Clark and Sarah Paulson Compare Notes: O.J. Simpson, Hair, Feminism and Curse Words

15 August 2016 9:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” forced Marcia Clark to relive one of the most difficult moments of her professional career – but more than 20 years after the verdict, she’s found peace.

Clark, now a successful author, joined Sarah Paulson – the actress who played her on “People v. O.J.” – on stage Monday in their first public appearance together. Together, they held a candid conversation about the series, sexism and life after O.J.

“I don’t think I’m ever going to heal completely from the injustice of it, the unfairness,” Clark told “People v. O.J.” executive producer Ryan Murphy, who moderated the conversation at 20th Century Fox’s Zanuck Theatre. “But I’ve come to understand it more deeply.”

Clark said the racial divide was something Los Angeles’ district attorney office was aware of, and an issue they knew would be a focal point »

Charlie Rose Talks Hillary Clinton Interview, Gop’s Brexit Parallel and Being a ‘Political Junkie’

19 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cleveland, Ohio — Charlie Rose is immersed in Gop politics in Cleveland this week at the Republican convention, but his reporting coup came from across the aisle after he secured a lengthy sit-down with Hillary Clinton.

Clinton was “authentic and engaged and not holding back” during her interview on Monday in Cincinnati that followed her speech at the NAACP’s national convention. Portions of Rose’s hourlong interview ran on various CBS News platforms Monday and in full on PBS’ “Charlie Rose.” Clinton made headlines during the Gop fete by asserting that Republican nominee Donald Trump has taken “the “most dangerous, reckless approach to being president than I think we’ve ever seen.”

“I thought she was enormously responsive,” Rose told Variety Tuesday morning while strolling the Gop convention floor at the Quicken Loans Arena. “I have had people telling me that they thought she was enormously natural. You felt like it was a conversation.”

Inside Lin-Manuel Miranda's Final Hamilton Performance and His Celeb-Filled Afterparty

10 July 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Lin-Manuel Miranda made his entrance during the opening number of his history-making musical Hamilton on Saturday night, he received a one-minute standing ovation, with applause so loud it nearly brought the house down. This wasn't just any performance for the 36-year-old actor, who also penned the show's music, lyrics and book. It was his last in the title role of Alexander Hamilton. Miranda left the production - as did original cast members Leslie Odom, Jr., Phillipa Soo and Ariana DeBose - after being with the musical since its off-Broadway run at New York's Public Theater last winter.

The West Wing theme song was playing in the room where it happened.

Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda took his final bow Saturday night at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre as the theme to Aaron Sorkin’s Emmy-winning drama played in the background. Miranda, a self-proclaimed West Wing acolyte, has previously said the series served as an inspiration for his Tony-winning mega-smash.

Sun Valley: Les Moonves Chauffeurs Shari Redstone, Justin Trudeau Preps for Mogul Debut

5 July 2016 7:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ah, the first day of summer camp for billionaires.

It’s that time of year when media barons break out the bike shorts and descend en masse on Sun Valley, Idaho for investment firm Allen & Co.’s exclusive conference.

The gathering of the one percent has developed a reputation over the years for being a hotbed of dealmaking — Comcast’s acquisition of NBCUniversal and Time Warner’s disastrous marriage to AOL were just a few of the pacts cooked up at the ski resort.

As he arrived Tuesday, Providence Equity Partners head Jonathan M. Nelson summed up the appeal of the conference in haiku fashion, “Learning. Friends. Some business.”

It’s not just the prospect of a merger or purchase that brings the bigwigs out in force. Over the better part of a week, guests such as Disney chief Bob Iger, Sony Corp. CEO Kaz Hirai, Comcast Corp. chairman Brian Roberts, »

Watch Martin Scorsese and Brian De Palma’s 45-Minute Talk on The Dick Cavett Show

20 June 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s a Brian De Palma kind of month, with most people giving their two cents on the auteur after having seen Jake Paltrow and Noah Baumbach‘s documentary, De Palma. We also recently launched a career-spanning series in which we will look at all of his films over the summer. De Palma is one of the more polarizing filmmakers around – one day he makes masterful filmmaking such as Blow Out, Dressed to Kill, and Carrie and then he pulls out a Mission To Mars or the quasi-unwatchable Bonfire of the Vanities.

De Palma’s best movie Blow Out, a riff/tribute to Antonioni’s Blow-Up, was a smart, hallucinatory take on voyeurism. John Travolta and De Palma evoked Hitchcockian tradition in the best of ways. It’s also the best performance from the actor we’ll likely ever see.

The 75 year-old De Palma seems to be everywhere these days. »

Veep, Ep. 5.04: Selina Pulls the Plug on “Mee-Maw”

16 May 2016 8:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Veep, Season 5, Episode 4: “Mee-Maw”

Written by Alex Gregory & Peter Huyck

Directed by Dale Stern

Airs Sundays at 10:30pm on HBO

For Selina Meyer, winning trumps all other personal concerns, whether those entail being sympathetic to a grieving daughter or honoring her deceased mother. That singular focus is the secret to Selina’s success, but it also makes her a monster. Sometimes that monstrous side peeks out and the public gets an eyeful, usually leading to her failure. Veep is funniest and most successful when Selina is terrible enough that she dances on the line between success and failure. “Mee-Maw” finds her at her worst, which is best for viewers.

While speaking at a windmill farm, where she’s careful to remind the press that she has won the popular vote, Selina learns that her mother has had a stroke and is on life support. Even though she doesn »

CBS Will Revamp ‘CBS Evening News’ on Weekends

2 May 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS is retooling its weekend evening-news broadcast in an effort to align its TV and broadband operations more closely and cut some of the costs from a show that is routinely pre-empted by sports coverage and other weekend programming.

As a result, a new iteration of the broadcast will appear. Gone from the weekends will be the storied “CBS Evening News” title. In its place? “CBS Weekend News.” The new program will have new anchors and could have more stories in the mix that have appeared on Cbsn, the live-streaming news service CBS launched in late 2014. Reena Ninan and Elaine Quijano (pictured, above), will anchor the program on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Both also serve as anchors on Cbsn.

“Given the number of sports overruns and out-and-out pre-emptions, it would be better for us as a news organization to come up with what I think is a smarter, 24-hour approach to covering the world, »

Megyn Kelly Talks Post-Trump ‘Exposure': ‘It’s Like, What Am I Doing Here?’

3 April 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly tells CBS’s Charlie Rose that some of the collateral benefit of sparring with Gop frontrunner Donald Trump has been a big boost to her professional exposure — even to the point of the reporter being part of the story. In a free-wheeling interview with Rose on CBS’ “Sunday Morning,” Kelly discusses her family, her career and the unexpected perks of a high-profile life … like being the subject of a recent cover profile in Vanity Fair, which calls her “a newly minted role model for women and a conservative champion who transcends politics.” For Kelly, host. »

Megyn Kelly Says Donald Trump Is ‘Absolutely’ Welcome on Her Show

Megyn Kelly says Donald Trump is “absolutely” welcome on her show anytime. Speaking to Charlie Rose for a segment of “CBS Sunday Morning” that will air this Sunday, the Fox News anchor gave her account on that what truly happened between her and the Gop frontrunner. “Why did he start? Does it all go back to a question in August of 2015?” Rose asked. “Yes, it did. Clearly. Because Trump and I really didn’t have a relationship at all prior to that,” Kelly said, adding, “I think it’s very clear to him that he cannot control the editorial on my show, »

Explore the Genius of Stanley Kubrick In a Collection of Documentaries, Conversations, and More

7 March 2016 11:57 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later. – Stanley Kubrick

17 years ago today, we lost perhaps the most influential director in cinema, Stanley Kubrick. There’s no shortage of videos and other materials (we’ve posted hours upon hours’ worth) regarding his meticulous process and the effect his work has had on generations of filmmakers, but while he continues to be a source of inspiration for both them and viewers, there’s also room to learn more. On the anniversary of his death, we have a collection of some of the finest resources.

Leading off with the crown jewels of today’s post, we have a nearly one-hour conversation with his widow Christiane Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, and his long-time producer Jan Harlan. The trio »

‘People v. O.J. Simpson’ Star Sterling K. Brown on Playing Chris Darden and How His View of the Verdict Changed

1 March 2016 10:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast list of “The People v. O.J. Simpson” is star-studded, but in the key role of Chris Darden, executive producer Ryan Murphy says he knew from the beginning he wanted a fresh face. Enter Sterling K. Brown, who landed the role in an audition.

And that audition process, according to executive producer and writer Larry Karaszewski, was an arduous one. Finding the right Chris Darden was difficult.

“It was the hardest role to cast,” Karaszewski recalls. “Some black actors would be like, ‘I don’t want to play Chris Darden,’ because Chris Darden had a bad rep in the black community. It was hard to find someone who could play the legal scenes, having the speeches and things like that, and have the humanity but also the force. We saw hundreds of people and we just couldn’t find him. We were thinking, ‘Maybe let’s go to South »

[Sundance Review] Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny

27 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Premiering at Sundance 25 years after his seminal second feature film, Slacker, Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny, produced for the PBS series American Masters, is the kind of documentary that requires little introduction. Borrowing its title from the opening moments of his Waking Life — a film that itself represented a rebirth for the Austin-based filmmaker following his second studio feature The Newton Boys — and combining behind-the-scenes footage from many of Linklater’s films (from Slacker to his upcoming Everybody Wants Some) with a history of Austin’s independent film scene, as developed by Linklater and the Austin Film Society, the picture reflectively weaves together a history of a master filmmaker whose work is squarely interested in the passage of time. The picture includes commentary by the late Siskel and Ebert, along with critic / scholar Kent Jones and, very briefly, Kevin Smith.

Directed by Louis Black (SXSW and Austin Chronicle founder) and Karen Bernstein, »

Diversity in Hollywood: Failure of Inclusion Plagues the Entire Industry

26 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2015, America’s age-old struggle over civil rights centered on police violence. Gunshots too often killed unarmed black citizens — and the African-American population exploded with indignation, no longer willing to abide the status quo.

This year, the nation’s battle over identity and inclusion has found a new focus: Hollywood. The tipping point arrived with the Jan. 14 unveiling of Oscar nominees, a list as white as the Social Register, circa 1950. The announcement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences — revealing that every one of the 20 acting nominees was white, incredibly, for the second consecutive year — has filled the Twitterverse and cable talk shows with outrage, plunging the Academy into crisis. The lack of diversity has dominated the conversation, from the executive suites at Disney to the hallways of CAA.

The 89-year-old motion picture academy is absorbing the brunt of the public disdain. But the fault lies not just in the star-making Oscars, »
