Chicago – Jason Segel is a real mensch. The tall and angular actor is open, active and caring about his career, and he fulfills another part of his performance evolution in director James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour.” Segel portrays author David Foster Wallace, when he appeared on behalf of his 1996 novel “Infinite Jest.”
“The End of the Tour” focuses on four days in the life of Wallace, as a Rolling Stone magazine reporter named David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) follows Wallace around as he makes one last stop on his book tour for “Infinite Jest.” It’s basically about the two men as they interact, jousting upon the issues in the book, Wallace’s choices in his modest lifestyle and how some encounters on the tour in Minnesota add another dynamic to their relationship.

While nearly 150,000 people are fighting to get into all sorts of big film, TV, author and comic book panels at the Convention Center for Comic-Con, NerdHQ hosts intimate celebrity panels in a theater that holds only 200 fans who get to ask all of the questions. The panels are often hilarious and sometimes very revealing, and the hour with Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals) and Gabe Sachs (The Night Shift, Freaks and Geeks) was no exception. During the hour-long panel, Julie Plec and Gabe Sachs shared insights into what it’s like to be a writer and showrunner, how to break into the TV industry, especially when you have no connections, and how you deal with network notes. Plec also talked about whether Caroline and/or Stefan could fit in on The Originals, writing strong female characters, dopplegangers, the process of figuring out how to say goodbye to Elena on The Vampire Diaries, »

Charlie Hunnam has been in the Hollywood spotlight since the late '90s, and it's safe to say that he just keeps getting hotter and hotter. The sexiest Charlie Hunnam pictures out there include several recent favorites - bonus points for the ridiculously hot shirtless snaps - but he's been a heartthrob for more than a decade. In the early 2000s, Charlie appeared on Undeclared and starred in Nicholas Nickleby alongside Anne Hathaway then gained even more attention with roles in Cold Mountain and Green Street Hooligans. The character of his career, though, was undeniably Sons of Anarchy's Jax Teller, and he had some crazy-sexy, Gif-worthy moments on the show. Now that the series has ended, we'll be seeing more of Charlie on the big screen, but until then, let's take a look back at his very handsome Hollywood evolution, from the '90s to now. »
The Ghostbusters Outfits For Paul Feig’s Remake Have Been Released. There’s something strange in the neighborhood.

Paul Feig is a talented man. He has directed episodes of Freaks & Geeks, Undeclared, […] »

Charlie Hunnam has gone through quite the onscreen evolution since his days on Undeclared, but this latest role takes his look to a whole new level. He's playing the title role in Guy Ritchie's upcoming movie, Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. Think of the classic Sir Lancelot story, only with more action and hopefully some shirtless Hunnam. He's all covered up in these pictures from the Wales, UK, set, but he does sport a really interesting haircut that we couldn't really see in the first picture from the set. Take a look, and if you can't get enough, you should definitely check out his sexiest Sons of Anarchy moments. »

For a fun dose of eye candy and to celebrate Charlie's 35th birthday on Friday, relive his sexiest moments on Sons of Anarchy, then take a look at 22 times he looked really, really good.

Before Sons of Anarchy and before Charlie Hunnam became a bona-fide heartthrob, the sexy Brit appeared on the short-lived TV series Undeclared. Created by Judd Apatow back in 2001, the show followed a group of college freshmen, and along with Hunnam, the series also starred familiar faces like Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, and Carla Gallo. As Lloyd Haythe, Charlie played the main character's hot British roommate - a theater major who was all about the ladies. Whether you loved all 17 episodes or never watched the show, relive Charlie's best Jax Teller moments, then take a trip down memory lane with this ode to his Undeclared days, including GIFs, clips, and must-see photos of young Charlie. »
Park City - It would be wrong to pigeonhole Jason Segel as simply a comedic actor. Whether playing the romantically scorned Nick in "Freaks and Geeks" (or Peter in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), the psychotically romantically scorned Eric on "Undeclared," the romantic but, in a key arc, grieving Marshall on "How I Met Your Mother," Segel has always been able to infuse his clowns with a grounding of real pain or disappointment or passion. But thinking back over Segel's resume, it was hard to point to any role that indicated Segel might be a chameleon. He's always come across as too large in stature, too modern in tone to be invited to do period films or biopics or really any kind of project skewed towards the dramatic. I'd never have described Segel as limited in his acting range, but whether by his choice or Hollywood's perception of him, Segel's CV was »

A Russell T Davies TV project is always something to be excited about. From gifting us Queer as Folk to saving Doctor Who, he has given us a lot to be grateful for over the years. Hence why his various comeback series on Channel 4, E4 and online later this month are being greeted with such a sense of anticipation.
Cucumber, Banana and Tofu come 16 years after Davies shook up TV with Queer as Folk and his new shows look likely to be just as exciting, exploring the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life with a candid sense of humour.

Toronto, Canada. After a morning spent slipping and falling, for comedic effect, on the ice of a suburban hockey rink, "Man Seeking Woman" star Jay Baruchel is eager to talk about his new Fxx romantic comedy. The Powers That Be, however, are not cooperating. We're in a small Baptist church that has had its basement retrofitted into a "Man Seeking Woman" production hub and, at the moment, a high-profile guest star who I can't currently reveal is shooting in front of a green-screen in the room next door. A door is closed, but Baruchel is excited about his first regular TV series gig in nearly a decade and a stern Ad keeps peeking in to "shush" the source of loud vocalizations, ignoring that the noise is coming from the guy who's first on the call-sheet. This is not what a guy who spent the morning stumbling and bumbling on freshly »

Musicals have been a genre rarely explored on television, and fairy tales even less so. Thus, the idea of a new show in either category is an intriguing one and a show that combines the two, as Galavant does, is an exciting prospect. With a four-week run (eight half-hour »
