Mike Nichols Movies: 18 Essential Films You Should Watch Right Now

20 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.

Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Following Scoop: Michael Ealy Cast as Ryan Hardy's Next Nemesis

18 November 2014 3:30 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We have a hunch that Almost Human‘s idealistic Dorian would be disappointed in Michael Ealy’s killer new role on The Following.

Ealy has been cast as a “brilliant, chameleon-like” murderer who’ll test Ryan Hardy’s limits, TVLine has learned.

The role is a leap from the actor’s last series-regular gig as an innocent, caring android in Fox’s cancelled sci-fi drama. His other TV work includes Common LawCalifornication and The Good Wife.

As previously reported, Hunter Parrish (Weeds) and Zuleikha Robinson (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) will join Ealy on the Fox thriller’s Season 3 cast roster. »

Adult Swim’s 'Black Dynamite' is the latest to bash Bill Cosby

14 November 2014 11:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Adult Swim’s “Black Dynamite” is the latest to bash Bill Cosby The latest shot at Cosby, revolving around a “Cosby Coon Renewal Program,” has nothing to do with the rape allegations. In Friday’s episode, titled “Sweet Bill’s Badass Song or Cos Ain’t Himself,” Cosby is portrayed as a villain who kidnaps all the “blackity-black” actors in an effort to get them to “stop cooning in Black Hollywood.” The timely episode has been in the works for a year. Discovery's “Eaten Alive” could kill an anaconda Dr. Jesús A. Rivas, who specializes in the green anaconda that the Discovery special is using explains: "When they swallow a prey, because they don't have the respiratory system that we do, they can either swallow or breathe. They can't do both. So during the time the prey goes through what would be the throat, they have to do that in apnea. »

How Showtime President David Nevins Took the Network to New Heights

21 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Did you see last night’s ratings for ‘Ray Donovan?’”

It’s the morning after the show’s second-season finale, and Showtime president David Nevins sounds like a proud father, high-fiving a visitor to his Westwood office and firing off stats: The Liev Schreiber drama hit a series-high 2 million viewers. “It’s up 40% from last year,” he says, with a broad grin.

Nevins has good reason to be happy on this late-September day. “Ray Donovan” indeed blossomed into a ratings hit for his network in its sophomore season (even with behind-the-scenes drama forcing a change in showrunner for season three). “Masters of Sex” also wrapped its second season with heightened critical acclaim for the show and the performances of stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.

With a week to go before the fourth-season relaunch of “Homeland,” the early reviews are mostly good as the drama reboots itself in an effort »

Mipcom: Lionsgate TV’s Kevin Beggs on ‘Orange Is the New Black’s’ Foreign Appeal

15 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes — Lionsgate Television chairman and CEO Kevin Beggs spoke about the foreign appeal of “Orange Is the New Black” and the company’s global outreach during a keynote Wednesday at Mipcom.

In the past 10 years, Lionsgate Television’s biz has grown from $8 million to $500 million in sales, and according to Beggs, the international market has been a driving force behind that growth.

“Before anything goes out the door, we have to have a feel that it will work internationally,” Beggs said. “There are certain shows we can’t get behind because the international market can’t get behind them.”

Beggs said Lionsgate expected “Orange Is the New Black” to do well abroad from the start because the series’s showrunner, Jenji Kohan, has a humor and sensibility which works around the world.

Orange Is the New Black” is indeed the most-watched show on Netflix in France and Germany, where the digital service launched last month. »

Mipcom: Why The World Loves 'Orange Is the New Black'

There was a time when such cutting-edge fare as Nurse Jackie, Nashville and Orange Is the New Black would have been considered a tough sell internationally. But, according to Kevin Beggs, chairman of Lionsgate Television Group, which produces all those shows, and AMC's Mad Men, the world has changed. Orange Is the New Black is the most successful show on Netflix' new channels in continental Europe, evidence that groundbreaking U.S. drama can also go global. Beggs put the international success down to showrunner Jenji Kohan. “We were confident about Orange because of Jenji,” he explained. “She did Weeds for us,

Martin Donovan taking “pivotal” Ant-Man part

Filming on Ant-Man might be well underway, but that hasn’t stopped the project from adding another name to its ensemble, with Martin Donovan signing on to join the cast. The Weeds actor has agreed to take an undisclosed role in the film, and while the character’s identity is shrouded in mystery, THR describes him as “pivotal”. Given that filming has been going on for some two months now, we’d assumed that Donovan’s role is a minor one, with possible significance to a future film.

Martin Donovan Joins Ant-man in Unnamed, “Pivotal” Role

7 October 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ant-Man has been filming for almost two months, but they've just added another bit of casting.  According to THR, Martin Donovan (Weeds) has joined the cast to play a "pivotal" role that's being kept under wraps.  At this stage in the game, it's presumably a minor role, but if it's "pivotal", I'm going to assume it might have consequences far beyond this movie, and with Marvel, that's my working theory: everything branches out to much, much bigger stuff.  Or maybe he's just a guy that tells Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) some stuff about ants.  Entomology is important. The film also stars Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John SlatteryAnt-Man opens July 17, 2015.  Donovan will next be seen this December in Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice.
