Jenji Kohan On the Naked Truth of 'Orange Is the New Black'

17 April 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Putting together a television show involves an infinite number of stresses, but Orange is the New Black showrunner Jenji Kohan honed in on one specific challenge at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society lunch, according to The Hollywood Reporter: "I love graphic sex, the more sex the better," she said. "Very often it's convincing the actors to get naked… You hope everyone will just be cool about it, and then they're not. There's a lot of convincing and making people feel comfortable."

Interview: Working Out Our ‘Big’ Issues With Elizabeth Perkins

1 April 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I’m sitting here with Elizabeth Perkins, who starred in 1988’s Big, to talk about the making of the beloved movie now that we’re almost at its 26th anniversary. Elizabeth, thanks for meeting with me. Well, thank you. I’m a little confused why we’re talking about the film in time for the 26th anniversary instead of last year for the 25th. Right, right. Well, this didn’t occur to me last year. Oh. Okay, then. First off, I have to say that I loved you in Weeds. Probably my favorite of your roles. Thank you, that is kind. I loved my character, Celia Hodes. Me too. She deserves her own spin-off. Ha ha, well, let me know if Showtime agrees. Will do. Aside from Celia, one of your most famous roles has to be as Susan, the disillusioned workaholic who learns to love by falling in love with a 13-year-old, in »

31 March 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Richard Dreyfuss has joined the TBS comedy pilot Your Family Or Mine, from Greg Malins, Sony Pictures TV and Fanfare. Based on an Israeli format, the show centers on Oliver and Kelli, who are living proof of the adage “When you marry someone, you don’t just marry them, you marry their whole family.” It is a family comedy with an unusual structure — each episode focuses on a different side of the family: one week featuring the couple dealing with Kelli’s family, the next spent with Oliver’s. Dreyfuss, repped by Apa and The Schiff Co., will play Ricky, Oliver’s father, opposite JoBeth Williams’ Louis. This marks the first series-regular role for Oscar-winner Dreyfuss since his starring turn on the 2001 CBS drama The Education Of Max Bickford. Over the past decade he’s done arcs on Showtime’s Weeds and NBC’s Parenthood. He most recently wrapped »

11 Things We Learned From the 'Orange Is The New Black' PaleyFest Panel

15 March 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Played out before an enthusiastic crowd on Friday (March 14) night, the PaleyFest debut for Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black" was a mixed-to-positive affair.  Mostly positive. The 70-minute panel, which proceeded by only a brief Season 1 clip reel, was a fantastic showcase for the chemistry of the deep ensemble cast, which was represented by 11 returning stars, one fresh face and one unannounced guest. Plenty of time was spent on the show's progressive stance for women, racial diversity and diversification of gender and sexual roles. Plenty of time was also spent buttering Netflix up, as seemingly the entire cast raved about the idea of binge-watching TV, but only referenced "House of Cards" as a show that might be binged. Paying near-religious tribute to series developer and showrunner Jenji Kohan, the "Orange" team celebrated their unique working environment and the freedom it gives them. As a big fan of "Orange Is The New Black, »

Mary-Louise Parker's character on the Showtime hit Weeds, which ran for eight seasons until 2012, grew and sold marijuana unapologetically. But when it comes to the actress's kids, using the drug is not an option. "We talk about drugs a lot," Parker told People Tuesday in New York City at the Love Heals 2014 gala to benefit the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education. "I really hate drugs, and I was always the person where that was my thing: Mary-Louise doesn't do drugs."

First Images from Season 2 of Orange Is The New Black

12 March 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Because of David Fincher and a top-notch cast, House of Cards received plenty of attention before it was even released, and it managed to mostly live up to the hype.  But Netflix had a sleeper hit last year with their original series Orange Is the New Black.  Perhaps it was because I was never a fan of creator Jenji Kohan’s previous series, Weeds, but I was surprised by the enthusiastic buzz Oitnb received, and it became an unexpected binge watch for me.  Now I’m excited for season two, and the first images from the new season have gone online.  The new images highlight both the dramatic side with the aftermath of Piper’s violent confrontation as well as the comic aspects with the inmates dressed up for a mock job fair. Hit the jump to check out the images.  All 13 episodes of Orange Is the New Black will »
