'You're the Worst' Boss on FX's Twisted Rom-Com: It's More Than "Are They Going to F—?"

11 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

FX's You're the Worst could be considered the anti-romantic comedy. The series, created by Stephen Falk (Weeds, Orange Is the New Black), centers on two horrible human beings — Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen (Aya Cash) — and their misadventures in life, love and romance. But it's far from the typical "will they or won't they" love story. Instead, Gretchen and Jimmy — described by critics "TV's best couple" and "one of TV's most watchable courtships" — get kicked out of weddings. Drink too much. Routinely flake on friends. Skip out on work. Drive drunk. And then try to date one another. And that's where the

Duh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh…best buzz!

Mary-Louise Parker Eyes Mary Karr Memoir Series At Showtime

6 September 2014 3:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Showtime series Masters Of Sex has been something of a runaway success for the network, so it comes as no surprise that it would seek to replicate that by throwing its weight behind another memoir-based project from executive producers Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly. The series now in development is based on the self-penned life story of award-winning Us essayist and poet, Mary Karr, and Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds) is apparently considering jumping aboard as star and executive producer.

Currently the Peck Professor of English Literature at Syracuse University, Karr’s star hit the stratosphere when her first memoir hit the New York Times bestseller list on publication in 1995. Titled The Liars’ Club, it takes an unflinching look at her difficult childhood, growing up in Southeast Texas during the 1960s.

She followed that initial instalment with Cherry in 2000 – which focused on her teenage years and early adulthood – and then with »

Is Television 'A Woman's Medium'?

5 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After winning two Emmys last week, Allison Janney said something that should be considered a truism but isn't. Explaining her successful return to TV after a sojourn in movies, the 54-year-old told Variety, "Television is a woman's medium."

Since "The West Wing" went off the air eight years ago, Janney has landed a number of supporting character roles in movies, mostly mom parts. Back on TV, however, she won Emmys this year (her fifth and sixth) for stretching to play two very different parts: a woman trying to salvage a difficult marriage in the premium-cable drama "Masters of Sex," and a recovering alcoholic whose daughter and granddaughter have followed in her reckless footsteps on the network sitcom "Mom."

Janney certainly seems to be an example of how television is friendlier to 54-year-old actresses than film is. But is television really "a woman's medium"?

Actually, you could argue that television has »

6 Reasons You're the Worst Is the Best New Show You're Not Watching

28 August 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You're the Worst on FX is doing markedly worse than its companion show, Married, in the ratings. But it shouldn't be. Even though Married has gotten more press and boasts a more familiar, pedigreed cast - Oscar winner Nat Faxon, Judy Greer, and even Paul Reiser - You're the Worst is the better series. Starring Aya Cash as romance-averse music publicist Gretchen and Chris Geere as her bitter Brit-novelist love interest, it's really the only show of its kind on the air right now. Here are six reasons you need to start watching (besides the fact that I just really want it to get picked up for a second season): 6. It's from the same guy behind Weeds and Orange Is the New Black. Stephen Falk, who is co-executive-producer on Oitnb and previously held down the same job on Weeds, is also at the helm of this FX series. So »

Watch Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a Hilarious Emmys Spoof (Video)

19 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Obviously, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul should team up for new spoof videos every week. That's one way give "Breaking Bad" fans the fix they need, now that the show is over (sniff) and the only thing left to do is wait to see how many Emmys it wins on Monday, August 25.

Speaking of the Emmys, three trophy winners -- the AMC boys and four-time winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus -- are featured in this viral spoof called "Barely Legal Pawn," which comes via Emmy sponsor Audi.

In the six-minute video, Bryan and Aaron go full redneck as the pawn shop owners and Julia plays herself, pawning one of her Emmys to try and buy an island -- 'cause if Celine Dion has one, Jld should too, no? The guys confuse Julia with Mary-Louise Parker of "Weeds," which apparently happens a lot because of the Louis/Louise, and the three actors go »

Carla Gugino Will Go To The Brink For HBO

14 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.

Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”

As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »

You're the Worst creator Stephen Falk knows what it's like to make a comeback. The showrunner had his first series — NBC's Dane Cook comedy Next Caller — canceled months before it was scheduled to air as a midseason replacement.

This Just In: Hollywood Is Still Very White

6 August 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A new study has revealed that little has changed in Tinseltown in terms of offering up more diverse casting choices. Despite the fact that Hispanics make up a huge amount of the paying public, and have shown strong enthusiasm towards spending their money supporting whatever blockbusters are released, Hispanics only accounted for 4.9% of the speaking roles in last year's top 100 films. That figure is identical to what it was back in 2008- despite a strong surge in the Latino population here in the states. 

Even when they do get roles, the women in particular are marginalized as eye candy. The study shows that Latinas are the highest-represented ethnicity when it comes to roles that feature some form of nudity. 

"Part of the problem is conditioning. When you hear the names De Niro or Pacino, you automatically know it's an American movie," says actor Esai Morales. "But the minute you have »

New Cast Members Join Jack Black & Tim Robbins In ‘The Brink’

6 August 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO have got a new comedy show in the works and it has just added a few more cast members to the mix; Jaimie Alexander and Bernard White will join Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the shows’ main roles. The Brink, a half-hour comedy series tipped to be released by the end of the year, will be a humorous slant on the scramble to prevent geopolitical crisis as World War III looms ever closer.

Doesn’t sound that funny to us either but there’s several reasons we’re remaining optimistic. Firstly, the script is being written by seasoned writer/producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim, the former with credits including Ally McBeal and Weeds. Secondly, on board directing is Jay Roach who makes his first foray into directing a TV series after movies such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Meet The Parents and The Campaign. »

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Stars Talk Audition Memories, Nudity and Writers’ Room Secrets

5 August 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a deft demonstration of corporate synergy, Netflix tapped new talkshow host Chelsea Handler to moderate a Q&A for “Orange Is the New Black,” the streaming service’s Emmy-nominated dramedy, on Monday night.

The “For Your Consideration” panel, held at the Directors Guild of America theater in Los Angeles, gathered series creator Jenji Kohan and Emmy-nominated cast members Taylor Schilling, Kate Mulgrew, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox, along with fellow stars Lea DeLaria and Jason Biggs. The series is nominated for 12 trophies for its first season, while the streaming service has garnered 31 Emmy nominations in total this year.

The raucous panel was dominated by the outspoken and playful cast — at one point Cox joked, “don’t you love how relaxed this is? You’re in our living room!” — while a mellow Handler seemed content to let the stars shine without much interference. The actors asked questions of »

That’s right, The Dark Knight RisesWeeds, and Full Metal Jacket alum’s name has cropped up for Doctor Strange, but not in the way you might think. No trades reported his involvement, and no one has rumored him for the role. Instead, Modine has tossed his own name into the ring, and the actor is campaigning hard for the role on Twitter.

He actually tweeted Marvel Studios back in February, saying, “Marvel, I’d like to play Doctor Strange »

Kristen Bell, Amber Riley, and all-star hippies rock out in 'Hair' at the Hollywood Bowl

2 August 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The ’60s were a crazy yet influential time in our country’s history. People were fighting for their civil rights at home while debating America’s involvement in a growing conflict abroad, striving to find a place in this world that they could call their own. Half a century later, not much has changed. So reviving the 1967 American tribal love-rock musical Hair at the Hollywood Bowl for a three-night-only run this weekend has a special resonance beyond the potential to see famous people get naked on stage. And though stars like Kristen Bell, Amber Riley, and Sarah Hyland did not take it all off, »

Emmy-nominated editor Bill Turro is 'chasing the story' on 'Orange is the New Black' (Exclusive Video)

2 August 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Editor Bill Turro reaped his third career Emmy nomination for cutting the second episode of the freshman laffer "Orange is the New Black." In "Tit Punch," which we flash back to Galina "Red" Reznikov's (Kate Mulgrew) life before she was thrown behind bars. He was previously nominated for his work on Jenji Kohan's other hit comedy series "Weeds" in 2007 and 2008. In our recent webcam chat (watch below), Turro, taking a break from editing an episode of the hit show's third season, explained that editing is all about the art of visual storytelling or "film grammar" as he calls it. "I always say that editing is constantly chasing the story. I’m always wanting to put the viewer in a place where they’re watching the story. Just tracking the emotion, the tension, the meaning." -Break- Dish all the Emmy races right now in our red-hot forums For Turro, "e. »
