Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch Join John Carroll Lynch’s Drama ‘Lucky’

7 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harry Dean Stanton is starring in John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut “Lucky,” currently shooting in Los Angeles.

David Lynch will also appear in the film, which adds to the list of projects he and Stanton have worked on together, including “Wild at Heart” and “The Straight Story.” Stanton is also expected to appear in Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” reboot.

Superlative Films is the production company. John Carroll Lynch is directing from a script by Stanton’s longtime friends Logan Sparks and Drago Sumonja.

“Lucky” follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist — played by Stanton — and the quirky characters that inhabit his off-the-map desert town. He finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration.

The cast includes Ed Begley Jr. (“Better Call Saul”), Ron Livingston and Tom Skerritt, along with Barry Shabaka Henley, Beth Grant, Yvonne Huff Lee, Hugo Armstrong and James Darren.“

Producers are Logan Sparks, »

12 June 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The first annual Hamilton Awards — though I’m told it appeared on select DVRs as “the 70th annual Tony Awards” — felt like a three(ish)-hour of all that is right in the world.

On a day marred by unspeakable tragedy, it lifted our spirits and gave us countless reasons to smile. And in a time when other award shows fail to embrace diversity, it shone a proud spotlight on an incredible array of talent.

Castle season 8 episode 22 review: Crossfire

Castle has ended for good with a season 8 finale that doesn't do justice to the strength of this show's actors, or its fans' love...

This review contains spoilers.

8.22 Crossfire

I’ve tried. I’ve tried really hard. I’ve watched and rewatched, and there’s only one conclusion: Crossfire is downright insulting to the Castle audience.

As I suggested last week, I’m not exactly surprised by this. The series finale doesn’t just conclude the show, but brings to end one of the most excruciating seasons ever of a show that I otherwise liked. It’s not that I haven’t always had my problems with Castle. I have. But I’ve been a fan of Nathan’s since his short stint on Buffy, where he played, the Gentlemen from Hush aside, the only truly frightening villain the show ever had. And so I’ve followed him, »

Actress and director Adrienne Shelly was pregnant with her daughter, Sophie, when she worked on her hit indie film, Waitress, about an unhappy but talented pie-baking Southern woman trying to get away from an abusive husband.

After working on Waitress, the indie film she wrote, directed and starred in with Keri Russell, for almost two years, actress Adrienne Shelly couldn't wait to hear if the movie had won a coveted spot at the Sundance Film Festival.

‘Waitress’ Broadway Review: Sara Bareilles, Jessie Mueller Bake Up a Musical Storm

24 April 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Keri Russell looks as though she wouldn’t spend her lunch hour, much less a full work week, at Joe’s Pie Diner in the 2007 film “Waitress.” The actress does, however, bring real spine to the role of a put-upon, pregnant waitress who finds herself under siege by a beast of a boss on the job and a thug of a husband at home. Russell prevents the film from turning into a pity party. To her credit, Jessie Mueller doesn’t look like a glamorous movie star slumming in a pink-collar role in the new musical “Waitress,” based on Adrienne Shelly’s movie, »
