22 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Birthday Gallery: Patrick Wilson Turns 41

3 July 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Patrick Wilson has spent the last fifteen years as a triple-threat on Broadway, film, and TV, garnering two Tony nominations (for The Full Monty and Oklahoma), and Golden Globe and Emmy noms for the groundbreaking Angels In America.

One of our most versatile actors, he’s moved easily from such wildly diverse projects as The Phantom of the Opera, Little Children, Watchmen, The A-Team, Insidious, and Hard Candy, and he even starred in the unfortunately short-lived CBS series A Gifted Man.

Today is his 41st birthday, so let’s take a stroll down memory lane with a gallery of some highlights from Patrick’s career.

The Right Moment for Roy Cohn/Jack Smith

20 June 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

When Jill Godmilow’s documentary Roy Cohn/Jack Smith premiered at the 1994 Toronto International Film Festival, the number of AIDS-related deaths was reaching an all-time high in the United States (over 270,000). In New York City, the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic, many artists and filmmakers were grappling with the disease. While Broadway was hosting the second part of Tony Kushner’s award-winning play Angels in America, downtown New Yorkers were fondly recalling another recent production, Ron Vawter’s one-man show Roy Cohn/Jack Smith, in which the actor, who died of AIDS in April 1994, performed two monologues, first as Cohn, the conservative lawyer, and secondly, as Smith, the flamboyant experimental filmmaker—both of whom died of AIDS-related causes in the late 1980s. Twenty-years later, Godmilow’s movie version of Roy Cohn/Jack Smith provides a vivid time capsule of the era and an uncanny resurrection of all three men’s personas: Vawter, »

Callas, Streep, and "Master Class"

19 June 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tyne Daly played the role on BroadwayYou've undoubtedly heard the news by now that Meryl Streep will be playing opera diva Maria Callas in the film adaptation of the play Master Class, about Callas teaching a voice class at Juilliard. Well, telefilm adaptation I guess... so ink Streep down for the Emmy whenever that arrives since Hollywood is all about over-rewarding the winners. On stage the role has been played by Fanny Ardant, Zoe Caldwell, Faye Dunaway and Tyne Daly. Master Class is, in a way, a distant cousin to The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie as each involve an imperious older woman teaching students while also basically monologuing about her own glory days.

Terence McNally's play has been around since 1995 and as recently as last Winter Faye Dunaway, who played the role in a Los Angeles production, was still being interviewed about her struggle to get it on film. »

Casting: Meryl Streep Reportedly Reteaming With Mike Nichols For Maria Callas Biopic & More

19 June 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While Hollywood has tried for years to mount a Maria Callas biopic (we haven't heard much about Niki Caro's developing movie for a while now), it's not like it hasn't been done. Over a decade ago, Fanny Ardant toplined Franco Zeffirelli's "Callas Forever," and now Meryl Streep — who will be showing off her pipes later this year in "Into The Woods" — is giving it a go. The actress is reportedly reteaming with Mike Nichols (“Silkwood,” “Heartburn,” “Postcards From the Edge,” “Angels in America”) for an adaptation of the Broadway play "Master Class." Told from the perspective of Callas, it frankly covers "her storied career and personal life, which included being dumped by Aristotle Onassis for Jacqueline Kennedy." The project is set up at HBO, and it would mark Nichols' first film since 2007's "Charlie Wilson's War," but it's not clear when shooting will begin.

Which movie makes you cry the most? Digital Spy staff picks

19 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, The Fault in Our Stars is kind of a sad film. The reaction across the pond (where the film has been out for a couple of weeks) has essentially been one long, drawn out ugly-cry, to the point where Slate have even released a handy guide to keeping your eye make-up intact.

Even the movie's stars Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern aren't immune, as they admitted in our video interview. We also asked them what other films have made them cry, which sparked a discussion back in the office about the most effective tearjerkers of all time.

Below, Digital Spy staffers reveal the films that are guaranteed to leave them a weeping mess.

While prototypical inspirational teacher movie Dead Poets' Society is arguably a more obvious pick, Robin Williams's similarly inspirational performance here as wry, »

19 June 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Meryl Streep has signed up to play opera singer Maria Callas in an upcoming HBO film.

The August: Osage County star will feature in Master Class, an adaptation of Terrence McNally's Broadway play of the same name, reports Page Six.

The project will be directed by Mike Nichols, who previously worked with Streep on Angels in America and Silkwood.

Master Class follows Callas in the 1970s as she takes charge of a number of lessons at Juilliard School in New York City. The singer then begins to reminisce about her career and personal life.

Callas was played by Zoe Caldwell in the original award-winning 1995 Broadway production, with Audra McDonald also starring.

Filming on the HBO movie will reportedly begin in January.

Streep will also star opposite her daughter Mamie Gummer in an upcoming rock comedy titled Ricki and the Flash, written by Juno's Diablo Cody. »

Meryl Streep To Play Opera Legend Maria Callas In HBO Film

18 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Meryl Streep is no slouch when it comes to transformative performances, but the latest legend she's set to play will make Anna Wintour look like a pushover. Streep has signed on to star as Maria Callas in an HBO adaptation of "Master Class," an award-winning Broadway play by Terrence McNally that takes place in 1971 at Julliard. In the story, the unforgettable diva is teaching a class while contemplating her astonishing career and dramatic life, which includes a torrid affair with Aristotle Onassis that ends when he leaves her for none other than Jackie O.

"Master Class" will reunite Streep with Mike Nichols, who worked with her on "Angels in America," "Postcards From the Edge," "Heartburn," and "Silkwood." The movie will start filming in January after Streep finishes an entirely different sort of musical performance in Jonathan Demme's "Ricky and the Flash." Streep, who stars as an aging rocker, has »

Jeffrey Wright on joining 'intimidating' cast of 'Boardwalk Empire' (Exclusive Video)

13 June 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In our recent webcam chat (watch below), Emmy-winning actor Jeffrey Wright ("Angels in America") admitted to some trepidation about joining "Boardwalk Empire" in its fourth season: "It was somewhat intimidating because these actors were kicking serious butt over in that series." As he went on to explain, "the writing was extraordinary, the production design was beautifully filmed. So if you step into a situation like that, you don’t want to detract from that. You want to try and bring something to it and contribute. So I was a little concerned about that." -Break- Join the heated Emmy discussions going on right now in the red-hot message boards Regarding his character, the philanthropist Dr. Valentin Narcisse, the actor elaborated: "I think he certainly is villainous, but in his mind he’s anything but.

amfAR’s Inspiration Gala Honors HBO, Raises $1.2 Million

11 June 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stars of both fashion and film gathered at the historic Plaza Hotel on June 10 for amfAR’s 5th Inspiration Gala, to raise awareness for AIDS research and awareness.

The Normal Heart review: Mark Ruffalo shines in wrenching HIV chronicle

5 June 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Larry Kramer's 1985 play The Normal Heart is the dramatic equivalent of a primal scream - two hours of articulate fury born of Kramer's experience of the early AIDS crisis in New York. His protagonist and surrogate Ned Weeks (played here with heart-on-sleeve vigour by Mark Ruffalo) is a writer and activist, who bands together with his friends to raise awareness in the face of staggering apathy from the government, from the medical establishment and even from the gay community.

This overriding tone of righteous (and rightful) rage means that characters spend at least as much time making impassioned speeches as they do having actual conversations, which translates into a soapboxing tone that feels better suited to the stage than the screen. But the power of this elegant adaptation lies in the emotional depth of its characters, and in the isolated moments where director Ryan Murphy resists his flamboyant instincts »

How many of 'The Normal Heart' supporting actors will earn Emmy nominations? (Poll)

3 June 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As we noted recently, HBO's "The Normal Heart" has a lot in common with "Angels in America," and among their similarities are their deep rosters of Emmy-friendly supporting performances. "Angels in America" dominated the race for Movie/Mini Supporting Actor in 2004. How many Emmy nominations will "Normal Heart" get? -Break- Will 'The Normal Heart' sweep Emmys like 'Angels in America' did? "Angels" filled four of the five supporting-actor slots: Justin Kirk, Ben Shenkman, Patrick Wilson, and Jeffrey Wright, who went up against William H. Macy for Showtime's "Stealing Sinatra." Wright won the contest for reprising the multiple roles that won him a Tony for "Angels" on stage in 1994. "The Normal Heart" has its sights set even higher; HBO is entering five men in the Supporting Actor race: Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Joe Mantello, Alfred Molina, a »

TV On Tap: “Colbert Report” Viewers Are Best Informed About Campaign Finance, Kevin Alejandro Joins “The Returned” Remake and TV Guide Outlines “Major Crimes”‘ Plan for Rusty

3 June 2014 4:43 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

A study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found that people who watched The Colbert Report were better informed on campaign finance issues than people who got their news through traditional news sources. Remember this the next time someone laments that people say they get their news from comedy shows.

A&E found another reason for its adaptation of Les Revenants to grab your attention. Kevin Alejandro has joined the cast as the town sheriff.

I hope this turns out to be a better role than Brother Blood.

TBS has ordered a third season of King of the Nerds, according to The Hollywood Reporter. I’m thrilled, King of the Nerds has the best challenges on TV, there should be a spin-off that just reuses old challenges, like the one where competitors fly on brooms trying to land golden snitches into cauldrons.

Emmys: Hammond On Miniseries Contenders And Lingering Controversies

2 June 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Miniseries are coming of age again, at least according to the Television Academy, whose Board of Governors voted this year to once again give it a category of its own. This has been done from time to time depending on the health and general welfare of the miniseries format. For example, in 2011, the TV Academy felt longform television was dying on the vine and that there was just not enough entries to meet its “Rule of 14” (the minimum number of possible contenders needed to trigger a category). The networks were downsizing the form and, outside of the BBC and HBO, there wasn’t a whole lot of interest. But now, minis are exploding again and a new golden age seems to be on the horizon. With minis roaring back on their own—they are still combined with movies in the acting, writing and directing categories—what will the landscape look »

Will 'The Normal Heart' sweep Emmys like 'Angels in America' did?

HBO's "The Normal Heart" premiered on May 25, right under the wire of the Emmys' eligibility cut-off (May 31), so it's well positioned to take the awards by storm.

"Angels" pulled off an overwhelming sweep of the Emmys, winning 11 in all including Best Miniseries, Movie/Mini Writing and Directing, and all four acting races.
