All That Jazz (Criterion Collection) I've only seen Bob Fosse's All That Jazz once and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it a lot for its excellent photography, but I'm not sure I feel any need to purchase it. I didn't even ask for a review copy, but I will say were it to come on television I'm pretty sure it would be an easy movie to sink back into. One thing I will add, however, is Roy Scheider crushes this performance; a stand out, dripping with intensity performance that's certainly worth seeing. This new Criterion release comes loaded to the gills, here are the features: New 4K digital restoration, with 3.0 surround DTS-hd Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray Audio commentary featuring editor Alan Heim Selected-scene audio commentary by actor Roy Scheider New interviews with Heim and Fosse biographer Sam Wasson New conversation between actors Ann Reinking and Erzsebet Foldi »

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
It turns out it is all about who you know, after all – as Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan is about to demonstrate, by bringing new drama White City to AMC. He will direct the pilot and serve as co-executive producer on the geo-political drama about Western diplomats and journalists in Afghanistan.
The central character will be Jon Liston, described as a ‘war junkie’ who has spent most of a decade in Kabul, up close and personal to the violence and destruction. The notable thing about this new series is that it comes from individuals who have done just that – and have spent time living in the same situation as their leading character.
Co-writers and co-executive producers Nick McDonell and John Dempsey have, it seems, pooled their collective experiences to create a thrilling new drama for the network. McDonell is a novelist and journalist with experience in Iraq and Afghanistan for Time Magazine, »

The drama, which comes from former Middle East correspondent for Time magazine Nick McDonell and former senior Afghanistan adviser to Richard C. Holbrooke John Dempsey, centers on Western diplomats and journalists living in Afghanistan. The lead character is Jon Liston, a war junkie who has spent the better part of the last decade in Kabul with a front-row seat to the carnage. In the pilot, Jon ignores the advice of everyone and overreaches in an attempt to talk with insurgent leaders. It does not go well.
McDonell and Dempsey are co-writers and co-executive producers. Executive producers are Chris Mundy, a long-time journalist for Rolling Stone and showrunner on “Criminal Minds” and “Low Winter Sun,” and Tom Freston, the former CEO of Viacom and a former resident of Afghanistan. »

Just two weeks ago, MTV announced that it had set director Jamie Travis (Faking It) to helm the pilot episode of a series based on the popular meta-horror Scream franchise. At the same time, the network revealed a cast of young up-and-comers, including Willa Fitzgerald (Alpha House, Royal Pains), Amy Forsyth (Reign), John Karna (The Neighbors), Carlson Young (Key and Peele) and Amadeus Serafini. Now, some more casting news, including a major recasting, has been announced.

State of Play, the new political drama starring Katherine Heigl, has to find a new showrunner.

Bernero’s departure is reportedly due to rising tensions between him and fellow State of Play executive producer Joe Carnahan. It is unknown what differences the two had regarding the promising show. Heigl, who has been rumored to be difficult to work with, is not believed to be involved.
At the Television Critics Association’s press tour, Heigl countered claims that she was difficult on set, saying, “I can’t really speak to that. I can only say that I certainly don’t see myself as being difficult. I would never intend to be difficult."
In State of Play, Heigl plays CIA analyst Charleston Tucker. Her job in Washington includes briefing and advising the president, »
