[Comic-Con 2014] Bates Motel Mock Audition Tape Unveiled

26 July 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Fans of A&E’s Bates Motel have seen the dark sides of Norman Bates and his mother, Norma Louise, but the new comedically staged auditions of actors Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, and others reveal the funnier side of the people who play the motel operators and the surrounding townsfolk of White Pine Bay. We have the mock audition video that was revealed at Comic-Con.

Entertainment Weekly unveiled the mock Bates Motel audition tape online that features Freddie Highmore doing a Spider-Man impression, Vera Farmiga busting out some Ukrainian folk dance moves, Olivia Cooke walking with an oxygen tank and trying to get a light for her cigarette, and Nestor Carbonell innocently sporting an “I Was On Lost” T-shirt and pointing out how similar he looks to Anthony Perkins. The complete second season of Bates Motel hits home media on October 7th.

'Bates Motel' at Comic-Con: Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga talk about the kiss

25 July 2014 9:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Near the end of season two, A&E’s Bates Motel gave a tantalizing glimpse of teen Norman Bates experiencing the personality split integral to his later-life behavior. Since the character has already racked up a body count, the next question might be when he’ll begin wearing his mother’s clothes. In a discussion after the Bates Motel Comic-Con panel in San Diego Friday afternoon, star Freddie Highmore addressed the inevitable.

“It’s going to come at some point, isn’t it? I can see Norman sitting down in her room in front of the mirror and thinking ‘Oh, »

21 July 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From filmmaker Joe Swanberg, Happy Christmas tells the story of budding novelist Kelly (Melanie Lynskey) and her film director husband Jeff (Swanberg), who live a peaceful existence with their two-year-old son.  When Jeff’s irresponsible younger sister, Jenny (Anna Kendrick), comes to live with them and disrupts things a bit, it prompts Kelly to look at her own life and career. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Joe Swanberg talked about why he decided to explore the aspects of this particular story, why he wanted Anna Kendrick for this role, comparing the reality of the relationship between Jeff and Kelly to Coach Taylor and his wife from Friday Night Lights, why he decided to shoot this on 16mm film, shaping the story during the editing process, that he didn’t shoot much more than he used, how grateful he is for how much he’s learned on the films he’s made, »

Video: Ruth Wilson and Dominic West get steamy in new 'The Affair' trailer

20 July 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Showtime’s upcoming drama The Affair is about, well, an affair, but not just any affair: In the show’s latest trailer, Ruth Wilson’s Alison and Dominic West’s Noah speak to a detective about a supposed accident, hinting there’s a lot more to the story.

The series starts off with the happily married Noah meeting Alison, also married (to Joshua Jackson’s Cole) but seemingly not as happily, at a restaurant where he’s dining with his family—wife (Maura Tierney) and four children included. Things escalate quickly when Noah sneaks out of his in-laws’ beachfront home »

18 July 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Up next in the never-ending series of TCA press tour live-blogs?  Showtime President David Nevins. Showtime hasn't had an especially controversial or drama-filled year, but we're sure to have lots to discuss including the new season of "Homeland," series development and more. Follow along... 1:45 p.m. David Nevins starts with pre-question updates. Eight of Showtime's nine shows got Emmy nominations. Showtime has 10 shows, but "Penny Dreadful" won't be eligible until next year. He notes that "Penny Dreadful" was the network's most-watched new show on OnDemand and ShowtimeAnytime. As was announced earlier, "Homeland" is back for 12 episodes on October 5. In case you've forgotten, "Homeland" hit ratings highs.  1:48 p.m. October 19 is the premiere date for "The Affair." That'll be paneling later today. It's not quite what I was expecting, which I mean in a good way. On November 1, Showtime will premiere the original doc "Lost Songs: Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes Continues" 1:49 p. »

Box office preview: 'Sex Tape' and 'The Purge,' 'Planes' sequels to threaten 'Apes'

17 July 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Last weekend may have signaled a new Dawn for the Planet of the Apes franchise, as its latest film exceeded studio and analyst expectations with a $72.6 million debut. But Caesar and the gang face some formidable cross-genre competition this weekend, when Sex Tape, The Purge: Anarchy, and Planes: Fire & Rescue all hit theaters in wide release. With a steep drop-off expected for Apes and a lack of decent horror, family, and raunchy comedy fare on the market, all are tracking pretty similarly, making this summer weekend a rare box office wild card.

Here’s how things might play out:

'The Purge: Anarchy' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Savage Sequel

17 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last summer "The Purge" unassumingly broke and entered into theaters nationwide. A proudly B-movie affair, produced lovingly by "Paranormal Activity" kingpin Jason Blum, it starred Ethan Hawke and "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headley as a pair of well-off homeowners whose lives descend into chaos during the annual Purge -- a nationwide event where, for 12 hours, any form of crime is legal (and emergency medical services and police are suspended). Things, typically, go awry.

But while "The Purge" entered theaters with a whimper, it certainly left with a bang, making an unexpectedly healthy return on its modest budget and serving as the foundation of a probably franchise that, with any luck, will rival "Paranormal Activity" in terms of the numbers of installments and complexity of its respective mythology. The first follow-up film, "The Purge: Anarchy," arrives this week and takes an entirely different approach to the annual day of super violent cleansing. »

Zach Gilford Remembers His First Time in a Horror Movie…

17 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Continuing with the bit of fun I had with Olivia Munn earlier this month when I got her to recall the first time she starred in a horror film, I recently asked Zach Gilford to remember his horror debut. The Friday Night Lights vet had a busy year on the genre scene. It began in January with his turn in Devil's Due and it now carries into The Purge: Anarchy, which he shares the screen with Kiele Sanchez and Frank Grillo.

Interview: Zach Gilford on the World in ‘The Purge: Anarchy’

15 July 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Zach Gilford is a familiar face to fans of the TV series “Friday Night Lights,” where he portrayed Matt Saracen. The actor grew up around Chicago in Evanston, Ill., and has risen through the ranks of acting in his new home of Los Angeles. He currently is featured in the sequel film, “The Purge: Anarchy.”

The Purge: Anarchy” takes up the premise of the first film, which presupposes a near future America in which laws are suspended for one night a year, allowing all aggressions, crimes and firearms to be practiced with abandon. Zach Gilford portrays Shane, who is part of a couple – his real-life wife Kiele Sanchez is Liz, his other half – that are accidentally thrust into the Purge night with no protection, and hooks up with a armed vigilante named Leo (Frank Grillo). The sequel ups the ante of the first film, with more social commentary and fire power. »

Colin Farrell In Talks For True Detective

13 July 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The first season of HBO’s True Detective was a big success for the Us cable channel, scoring acclaim for its twisty, complex, thoughtful plotting and dark-skewing performances from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, who both won Emmy nominations for their work. Given the show’s anthology style, neither will return for season 2, and The Wrap reports that Colin Farrell is now in talks to step in.HBO isn’t commenting on casting rumours, so Farrell’s involvement won’t be confirmed until there’s an official announcement. But he’s certainly a solid choice for the cop drama. In addition to the Seven Psychopaths star, Taylor Kitsch is also being floated as a likely co-star. He’s had a rough time of it in cinemas, but Kitsch was praised for his turn on HBO’s TV movie The Normal Heart and of course used to do great work on TV's Friday Night Lights. »
