Exclusive: Alex Karpovsky on Why He Sticks to Indies and Ray's 'Happy Ending' on 'Girls'

22 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Alex Karpovsky is no stranger to a film festival. In the past year alone, he has had movies premiere at South by Southwest (Fits and Starts), Sundance (Sidney Hall), Tiff (My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea) and Tribeca (Folk Hero & Funny Guy, in which Karpovsky plays a struggling stand-up comedian who gets roped into opening for his more successful singer-songwriter friend on tour). Yet, when Karpovsky phoned Et to discuss Folk Hero & Funny Guy, out now, he said that he's the least busy he's been in years, despite having also had a prominent role as Ray Ploshansky in the sixth and finale season of HBO's Girls.

"I feel like there are guys working a lot harder than I am," Karpovsky laughed, explaining that he started acting in his early 30s when he and his friends would act in one another's independent movies. "I tried not to [turn friends down] as much as possible, just because »

Twin Peaks Revival Premiere Recap: The Meaning of the Box Is Threefold?

21 May 2017 7:53 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you’ve come to this recap of the Twin Peaks revival premiere seeking answers about what the heck happens in the series premiere, I’m going to have to make like Cooper in the Black Lodge and say next to nothing.

Because, honestly, Nadine’s drape runners have a better idea of what’s going on in the two-hour huh?-fest than I do. It doesn’t mean I won’t recount the highlights of the long-awaited continuation’s first installments, it just means that this long-time fan found the first few episodes tough to navigate.

Roger Ailes Dead: Bill O'Reilly Breaks Silence, Says 'Hatred Killed Him'

19 May 2017 5:25 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Just hours after Roger Ailes’ death was confirmed Thursday, recently ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly penned a tribute to his onetime boss, defending Ailes against the backlash he received in life.

“The list of legendary Americans whom Roger helped is long and impressive,” O’Reilly wrote in a USA Today op-ed. “From Ronald Reagan to George Bush, the elder, to Rush Limbaugh, Ailes gave them all blunt advice that led them to success. And it was that bluntness that made his life difficult, as enemies accumulated — some armed with a brutal hatred.”

17 May 2017 6:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tim Story, helmer of the three “Ride Along” movies, is directing and producing a feature film about the deadly 1921 Tulsa Race Riot.

Story and Doug Griffin are producing through the Story Company with Christine Holder and Mark Holder of Zero Gravity. Zak Kilberg and Blue Ridge Media are executive producing. Christopher Kubasik has been hired to write the screenplay, inspired by Corinda Marsh’s historical novel “Holocaust in the Homeland: Black Wall Street’s Last Days.”

The book’s account, seen through the eyes of a fictional reporter, focuses on the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Okla., which was called “Black Wall Street” because of its economic success. The riot completely razed Greenwood, destroying the lives of its 10,000 residents.

Homeland Star Reacts to Tragic Finale Twist: 'I Empathize With the Fans'

10 April 2017 10:20 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The following story contains massive spoilers from Sunday’s Homeland finale, proceed at your own peril. And we repeat: Stop reading if you have yet to watch the episode.

Review: "The Death of Louis Xiv"

30 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Bill Curran

Laying in regal and rotting repose, the glorious tendrils of a white M-shaped wig framing his ashen face, King Louis Xiv of France, in the year 1717, spends his final days dying atop luxurious satins and attended to by hand-wringing bureaucrats and a largely silent wife in Albert Serra’s (you guessed it) The Death of Louis Xiv.

As far as “death trip” movies go, Louis Xiv is a quintessential ordeal. Like moths around the flame, the films in this still-thriving trend announce the demise (or prolonged distress) of their subjects up front, with imminence and duration the focus, often with a titular clue to the narrative framework: The Passion of the Christ, Last Days, 12 Years a Slave, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days, 127 Hours, Day Night Day Night, Hunger, Two Days, One Night, and Son of Saul, to name but a few »

Discovery Backs Nasa Documentary from Oscar-Nominee Rory Kennedy (Exclusive)

22 March 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rory Kennedy will explore the inner-workings of Nasa in a new Discovery Channel documentary about the civilian space program. Entitled “Nasa: 60 Years and Beyond,” the picture is tied to the organizations sixtieth anniversary, but it won’t just be a retrospective, ticking through memorable moon landings and iconic space jockeys. Kennedy’s film will look into Nasa’s future, grilling the program’s leaders and the scientists whose work it is to chart the farthest reaches of the solar system. Kennedy plans to document new technologies, such as next-generation space telescopes, as well as prototypes of Mars-bound spacecraft.

The film will air on Discovery in 2018. The cable network has been making a big bet on splashy documentaries. Last year, it showed “Racing Extinction,” a politically-charged look at looming environmental threats from Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos, and this winter it debuted “Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman,” a Tom Brokaw-narrated film about the conservation movement, »
