Why Matt Weiner 'would lose' if he wanted to make a weekly Netflix show

26 January 2016 11:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the last few years, Netflix has arguably done more to change the way we watch, talk, and think about television than anyone since HBO in the turn of the century days of "The Sopranos," "Sex and the City," and "Six Feet Under." Between their library of titles licensed from more traditional TV operations and their ever-growing stable of original series, Netflix has conditioned viewers to binge-watch shows, has encouraged its creators to design shows made explicitly for that model, and has pushed television in general into a more serialized direction, since the most lucrative afterlife for many shows lies in being sold to a streaming service rather than into traditional rerun syndication. During an appearance at the TCA press tour earlier this month, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos said that the service would be offering over 600 hours of original content this year, and spending over $6 billion to »

22 January 2016 12:26 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Amazon’s latest original series is a dark dramedy. The website’s Prime subscribers can now access the first season of Mad Dogs, which focuses on five middle-aged friends they spill their respective secrets during a reunion trip.

The central characters in Mad Dogs are a quintet of buddies who are all portrayed by familiar Hollywood faces. Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Romany Malco (Weeds), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), and Ben Chaplin (The Thin Red Line) lead Amazon’s new series, with other TV vets like Allison Tolman showing up in support. All five of the principal actors appear in a trailer for the series, which arrived online last February.

Mad Dogs, based off a British series of the same name, first arrived on Amazon Instant Video in January 2015, when its first episode was released during one of the streaming platform’s pilot presentations. Several other projects from that pilot season, »

Pablo Schreiber on becoming a wounded soldier in 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

13 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Pablo Schreiber is driving home from his physiotherapy appointment in Encino, California, when he calls from a dying cellphone that might not last the trip.

He’s still recovering from a back injury sustained eight months earlier while he was bulking up to play an Army Ranger turned security operative in director Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

“I was having to lift a lot of weight and eat a lot of food and I ended up injuring my back by doing some dead lifts that I won’t ever do again,” says Schreiber, who was born in British Columbia and lived under the shadow of the Rockies until age 12.

Many will recognize the 37-year-old as "Orange is the New Black"’s merciless prison guard George “Pornstache” Mendez, who’s now rotting away in his own prison cell after getting a prisoner pregnant. (He didn’t really, »

Kate del Castillo: Meet the Star Playing a Big Part in El Chapo’s Real-Life Drama

10 January 2016 9:06 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mexican actress Kate del Castillo is suddenly starring in a real-life telenovela as details surface about her role in orchestrating the October meeting between Sean Penn and the then-fugitive Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Guzman was recaptured by Mexican authorities on Friday after escaping federal prison in July through a tunnel dug from his cell. Del Castillo and Penn are under investigation by Mexican authorities, who indicated that their visit to Guzman helped them capture one of the world’s most-wanted men.

Penn’s story in Rolling Stone makes it clear that del Castillo was the key instigator of the meeting thanks to Guzman’s appreciation for the 43-year-old telenovela star. Del Castillo came into contact with El Chapo after after declaring polemically on social media in 2012 that “today I believe more in Chapo Guzman than in governments.” She called on him to become a kind of Robin »

Sean Penn Under Investigation for Secretly Interviewing Mexican Drug Lord ‘El Chapo’

9 January 2016 6:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a surprising development, Rolling Stone has published the first-ever interview with fugitive Mexican drug lord Joaquín Guzman, known as “El Chapo,” conducted by none other than Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn.

Several news outlets reported that Penn is now under investigation for the interview, according to a Mexican official. They are particularly interested in the location of the meeting. Since Penn had been in contact with Guzman for several months, authorities are presumably interested to find out why the actor did not earlier share any information on the wanted man.

According to the Associated Press, Penn’s interview helped lead authorities to Guzman, who was captured and returned to prison Friday.

The interview published Saturday evening was conducted in October while the drug lord was on the run from Mexican and U.S. authorities. Mexican actress Kate del Castillo, star of Telemundo’s hit 2011 telenovela “La Reina del Sur,” in »

Video: Nine Actors Whose Careers Got a Big Boost from Quentin Tarantino

6 January 2016 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work. »
