The Office 11 years on: What Ricky Gervais, Martin Freeman and co did next

6 August 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ricky Gervais has confirmed that The Office's David Brent will be heading to the big screen with his own movie, Life on the Road.

So as we anticipate what Brent has been up to since the end of the BBC hit comedy, here's what the cast have done since:

Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais played the lead role as David Brent - the embarrassing, toe-curling and cringeworthy boss of company Wernham Hogg, devoid of self-awareness but poised with an unwavering love for the paper merchants he manages.

Gervais went on to create comedy Extras with Stephen Merchant, which was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and aired between 2005 and 2007. Gervais played ambitious actor Andy Millman, afflicted with a useless agent played by Merchant. Guest stars have included Patrick Stewart, Samuel L Jackson, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet.

In 2009, Gervais starred in, wrote and directed his feature comedy debut The Invention of Lying. »

Eli Wallach Has Died, Aged 98

25 June 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

United Artists

Veteran Hollywood actor Eli Wallach has died, aged 98.

One of the stars of The Magnificent Seven and The Good The Bad And The Ugly (quite possibly The star of that movie), his death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine in the NY Times.

Wallach was well known for his villainous roles in westerns during his 60-year career – also starring in How The West Was Won and The Misfits.

His character in the movie was the bandit leader Calvera, the nemesis of the eponymous ‘seven’ gunslingers, who were led by Yul Brynner. The movie was a western remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, regarded by many as one of the most influential films of all time.

Wallach was never nominated for an Oscar but received an honourary statue in 2011 for, “effortlessly inhabiting a wide range of characters, while putting his inimitable stamp on every role”.

His other iconic role was as Tuco, »

Wallach’s storied run in Hollywood also extended into TV, where he had roles in Playhouse 90, »

'The Good, The Bad And The Ugly' Star Eli Wallach Dead at 98

24 June 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The legendary character actor passed away after a career spanning six decades.

Eli Wallach, arguably one of the world's greatest character actors whose career spanned over 60 years, has passed away at the age of 98.

Wallach, best known for his iconic roles as the villainous gunslinger in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and as the even-more villainous bandit in The Magnificent Seven, acted even in his final years, appearing most recently in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps in 2010.

Wallach was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1915, and went to the University Of Austin, Texas where he got his bachelor's degree in history in 1936. It was in college that Wallach began acting in plays. He made his Broadway debut in 1945 and six years later won a Tony Award for his role in The Rose Tattoo, a play by Tennessee Williams.

Eli Wallach, ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ Star, Dies at 98

24 June 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tony- and Emmy-winning actor Eli Wallach, a major proponent of “the Method” style of acting best known for his starring role in Elia Kazan’s film “Baby Doll” and for his role as villain Tuco in iconic spaghetti Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” died on Tuesday, according to the New York Times. He was 98.

On the bigscreen Wallach had few turns as a leading man, but none was as strong as his first starring role in 1956’s “Baby Doll,” in which he played a leering cotton gin owner intent on seducing the virgin bride (Carroll Baker) of his business rival (Karl Malden). But he appeared in more than 80 films, offering colorful turns in character roles in movies such as “The Magnificent Seven,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Nuts,” “Lord Jim,” “The Misfits” and “The Two Jakes.”

Everything mentioned from 2006 and 2007 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

21 June 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Well, we’re getting into the weird part. Considering that 2006 and 2007 were mere blinks ago, the idea of revisiting these years via VH1′s rose-colored nostalgia goggles is certainly an unsettling one.

But oh, has I Love the 2000s officially gone off the rails since its promising beginning. None of the topics discussed in Friday’s two-parter seemed even remotely worth visiting—is anybody clamoring to discuss Flavor And Rock of Love? In fact, the mere presence of “bacon” and “putting Mentos in Diet Coke” as nostalgic references should signify that they’re really digging deep here to try and »

Most exciting comic book adaptation: Gotham.

Nicolas Cage To ‘Pay The Ghost’

16 May 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Nicolas Cage is Hollywood’s King Of The Bizarrely-Titled Movie. There was Drive Angry, The Bad LieutenantPort Of Call New Orleans (try ordering that off Amazon after a few lagers) and Bangkok Dangerous. It’s like the names had been translated from Dutch by a Nepalese yak herder and then sent to the printers via predictive text. Now Mr Cage is adding to his catalogue by signing up for Pay The Ghost, just announced at Cannes.

What is the supernatural thriller about? Images abound of Cage in hock to a muscle-bound bailiff who just happens to be deceased! That’s not the lowdown unfortunately. In reality he plays an English professor searching for his missing son during Halloween. While the actor has the eccentricity required to play a convincing screen academic it could end up less a case of book keeping and more a cavalcade of butt kicking, depending »

Trophy Wife: in memoriam

14 May 2014 1:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pete mourns the passing of Trophy Wife, a well-cast, well-written sitcom whose title didn't do it any favours...

Feature

Sitcom fans are in mourning this week following the cancellation of one of the sharpest, funniest sitcoms on television. I am, of course, talking about Trophy Wife, one of the more tragic losses of the Great Television Massacre of 2014.

Trophy Wife followed in the footsteps of ABC stablemate Cougar Town in having a needlessly off-putting title. Certainly anyone seeing the title and looking at the show’s two leads - the young and beautiful Malin Akerman, and Bradley Whitford, fifteen years on from The West Wing’s debut - might be inclined to put two and two together and make a borderline-offensive premise.

Nothing could be further from the truth, however; despite the age gap, Akerman and Whitford play one of the happiest, most loving married couples on television - arguably »

Trust Me Review

11 May 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is hard not to love Clark Gregg. A diligent character actor for many years on the stage and screen, he finally broke through in 2008 both in front of and behind the camera, with his initial appearance as Agent Phil Coulson in Iron Man and his directorial debut Choke, based on an unnerving Chuck Palahniuk novel. Choke proved to be a tough nut for Gregg to crack, with its sardonic, absurdly funny tone. Unfortunately, as reliable as the actor is as a performer, he still has some work to do in finding the right balance of humour and pain. His newest effort, Trust Me, is a comedy filled with so much misery and self-loathing, that to label it as a comedy is not just inaccurate, but untrustworthy.

In Trust Me, Craig plays Howard Holloway, a Hollywood agent of child and teenage actors who was once a young star himself. However, »

Timothy Busfield Heading to Sleepy Hollow in Key Role for Expanded Season 2

7 May 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Some casting news regarding Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" has arrived along with word that the network is expanding the number of episodes we'll be seeing in Season 2 by three or possibly even five! Read on for the details.

Per EW, the breakout hit series will produce at least 15 episodes for its sophomore season, with producers currently preparing for a potential total of 18. Season 1 contained 13 episodes. This will give the show's producers more leeway to tell their ambitious story, which exec producer Mark Goffman says will have a war theme.

“We look at this series as epic and every episode as needing to be epic,” Goffman said. “Every episode needs to be an adventure, and something mind-blowing has to happen to our characters with major revelations that move the story forward. We still approach it with that in mind. The more episodes you do, the harder that becomes, but I feel we »

Sleepy Hollow is enlisting a major Founding Father this fall. Ichabod Crane will meet up with Benjamin Franklin in season 2. Fox’s breakout action-thriller has cast The West Wing actor Timothy Busfield to play “the First American” in a recurring role.

Fans will discover that Crane (Tom Mison) reluctantly apprenticed under Franklin before he awoke in present day New England. “Last season we created this history between Ichabod and George Washington that talked about this secret war that was part of the American Revolution,” says executive producer Mark Goffman. “This season we’re continuing that and expanding on it with other characters. »

The one where 'Friends' ended 10 years ago tonight

6 May 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today in We Are All Getting Old And There Is Nothing We Can Do About It: 10 years ago tonight, a little show called "Friends" aired its last episode (titled, in that "Friends" style, "The Last One"). Dan and I are going to talk more about the anniversary on today's Firewall & Iceberg video show, but I wanted to bring up a few points for everybody to kick around in the meantime: * "The Last One" marked the end of a long period of dominance for NBC, and a long and humiliating decade to come. NBC would finish the 2003-04 season as the top-rated network among adults 18-49, a crown it had held for pretty much all of the Must-See TV era highlighted by "Friends," "ER," "Seinfeld," et al. Though "ER" would stick around for another five seasons, it was "Friends" that was basically keeping the network afloat, because Jeff Zucker was incapable »

Everyone, can I have your attention please? Aaron Sorkin has something he’d like to say about The Newsroom. And get this: It’s an apology!

According to Buzzfeed, Sorkin took a little time at a Tribeca Film Festival event Monday to say a few sheepish words about The Newsroom. It went a little something like this:

“I’m going to let you all stand in for everyone in the world, if you don’t mind. I think you and I got off on the wrong foot with The Newsroom, and I apologize and I’d like to start over, »

Will The Truman Show Work As A TV Series?

10 April 2014 3:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Presumably because all other ideas in the world have officially been used up, recent reports are confirming that The Truman Show – the 1998 film starring Jim Carrey about a man who realises his entire life is the sum of a TV show – is to be made into an actual TV show. Yes, Paramount have revealed plans to turn much of their existing content into brand new shows for television. “We have three buckets of content we’re looking at, and one of them is intellectual property the studio, which has been around for over 100 years, owns,” revealed Paramount exec Amy Powell.

The Truman Show, of course, emerged as one of the best films of the ’90s, and brought attention to Jim Carrey as an actor of great dramatic weight. The film was also nominated for three Oscars and made an absolute killing at the box office, so it’s no wonder, »

Have you been watching ... W1A?

2 April 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC's followup to Twenty Twelve, set inside the corporation itself, may be the most self-referential comedy ever should the BBC be poking fun at itself, or are the in-jokes just tiresome?

When the TV industry bangs on about itself, the viewing public gets restless. See Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. (I liked it.) But when a broadcaster makes a show all about its own management structure, the public nose is bound to be bent out of shape, no matter how good the writing. With W1A the BBC hopes to continue the success of John Morton's superb Twenty Twelve (the mockumentary about London's Olympic Committee) by transplanting two of its characters Ian Fletcher and Siobhan Sharpe, played by Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Hynes from the Olympic park to BBC HQ (the recently rebuilt New Broadcasting House in central London). All the meeting rooms named after venerable comedians ("We're »
