Claire Danes is coming clean! The "Homeland" star opened up about her infamous relationship with "Almost Famous" star, Billy Crudup, while chatting with Howard Stern on Monday. While Danes made a ton of headlines after Billy left left his then-pregnant partner, Mary Louise Parker, for her ... she doesn't exactly sound like she regrets it. "That was a scary thing," the actress said about their controversial relationship. "That was really hard. I didn’t know how to not do that." It was in 2003 the actor called it quits with the "Weeds" star to date Danes -- Billy and Mary had been together for 8 years prior and Parker was seven months pregnant with their first child. "I was just in love with him," Danes revealed. "And needed to explore that and I was 24... I didn’t quite know what those consequences would be." The former flames first met on the set of their film, »

If you're a fan of Orange Is the New Black, then you know by now that it's based on the real experiences of Piper Kerman. Kerman, known as Piper Chapman (and played by Taylor Schilling) on the show, published a bestselling memoir of the same name. While Kerman says the show, headed by Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, is not a docudrama whatsoever, her real-life experience does come through in the series. Obviously, the show has diverted a lot since we've been through seasons two and three, but here are factual details that inspired the series. Source: Getty/Charles Norfleet The Crime After college, the real Piper Kerman fell for a woman caught up in an international drug ring. In the book, she calls her Nora, and if you watch the show, you know her as Alex (played by Laura Prepon). The real Piper smuggled $10,000 from Chicago to Brussels, Belgium, during her time with Nora, »

Over the course of its first season, "You're the Worst" — a romantic comedy about two terrible human beings (played by Chris Geere and Aya Cash) who would vomit at the thought that they are the hero and heroine of a romantic comedy — went from a show I felt pretty ambivalent about to one of my favorite shows on TV. It's been nearly a year since the last original episode aired on FX, in part because the show has moved over to the younger-skewing Fxx channel(*), but based on the new season's first two episodes (it premieres tomorrow night at 10:30), the wait was worth it. (*) Every mention of the network shift brings with it some doomsday theory about how FX is sending the show to Fxx to kill it. All that paranoia seems rooted entirely in the failure of "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell" when it made the switch, »

You're the Worst might not be on your radar. But it should be. The twisted romantic comedy's second season debuts Wednesday night on Fxx - moving over from sister network FX - and is really the only show of its kind on the air right now. Starring Aya Cash as romance-averse music publicist Gretchen and Chris Geere as her bitter Brit-novelist love interest, Jimmy, it's smart, entertaining, and yes, even heartfelt, even though Gretchen and Jimmy would hate to admit it. Here are six reasons you need to be watching: 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 series. So if you expect the same acerbic wit, outlandish situations, and flawed-but-somehow-appealing characters he's had such success in dreaming up and writing for in the past, »

Last summer saw FX add two new shows to their then-existing lineup of half-hour series, a lineup that already included well-regarded shows such as Louie, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Archer. One of those shows, You’re the Worst, soon gained critical acclaim of its own, leaving many anticipating a second season renewal. That renewal did come down eventually, with a caveat that the show, which was created by Weeds writer Stephen Falk, would be shifting from main channel FX to the production company’s sister channel Fxx.
Chris Geere and Aya Cash are poised to return to the lead roles for the show’s second season, which will formally premiere on September 9th at 10:30 pm Et and will run for thirteen episodes.

While FX is known to most tv audiences for their dramatic lineup, which includes shows such as The Americans and Fargo, the channel and its offshoot Fxx have also been building a lineup of critically and commercially acclaimed comedies, including Archer, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Man Seeking Woman. Among the additions to the lineup last television season was the romantic comedy You’re The Worst. Created by Weeds scribe Stephen Falk, the series soon found an audience of its own, and was renewed by the channel. The renewal, however, came with a shift from FX to Fxx.
Now a trailer for the second season has been released, along with the announcement that the new season will make its premiere in September. Chris Geere and Aya Cash return once again as the central duo, alongside Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue. The new trailer for the series can be seen below. »

“A Rising Tide” is a likable drama that finds a clan of restaurateurs in hot water after Hurricane Sandy badly damages their business. While there’s a formulaic feel to some of it, the formula does work in this modest but engaging feature from writer-director Ben Hickernell (“Lebanon, Pa.”), aided by the conviction that the solid cast brings to the material. Result is a good bet for fests on the hunt for upbeat, inspirational fare, with theatrical prospects likely to skew regional. Home-format sales should be somewhat broader.
Sam (Hunter Parrish, “Weeds”) is rather reluctantly employed at his family’s longtime Atlantic City eatery, where his innovative ideas clash with the traditionalist leanings of his father, Alek (Victor Slezak), who insists they stick with the East Coast “comfort food” that sells. Still, Sam has little choice in the matter, having tried and failed to sustain his own nouveau-cuisine joint in hyper-expensive Manhattan. »
