Peter Berg Bashes Caitlyn Jenner’s Espy Courage Award, But Still Supports ‘Equality and Rights of Trans People’

17 July 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Peter Berg questioned why Caitlyn Jenner deserved to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs this week, but then clarified he is still “a strong supporter of equality and the rights of trans people everywhere.” The “Friday Night Lights” creator, who also executive produces HBO’s “Ballers” and directed 2013 war drama “Lone Survivor,” posted on Instagram Thursday a picture of Army veteran Gregory Gadson — who lost two legs during a tour of duty in Iraq —  alongside a picture of Jenner before her transition. “One Man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs, »

Friday Night Lights Creator Slammed for Cheap ESPYs Shot at Caitlyn Jenner

16 July 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Oy.  Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg is under fire from fans for a cheap shot he took at Caitlyn Jenner's courage during the 2015 Espy Awards.  The Lone Survivor director took to his Instagram to voice his displeasure with the gold medalist winning the prestigious Arthur Ashe Courage Award at last night's ESPYs, inferring that a soldier who lost both of his legs was more deserving. "One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs," the meme said. "Guess which Man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the "Arthur Ashe Courage Award" by Espn?" Berg's »

Jesse Eisenberg Has A Lot Of Anxiety In New American Ultra Clip

16 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Watching this latest clip from the upcoming action comedy American Ultra – in which actor Jesse Eisenberg depicts some extreme anxiety – it’s impossible not to wonder whether he had this exact reaction when he realized he had recently compared the San Diego Comic-Con with genocide. He has, evidently, been on a steep learning curve in terms of dealing with movie promotion, so hopefully his efforts on behalf of this new movie will feature fewer references to horrific international war crimes, and more emphasis on the actual project at hand – not least because this one might need some talking up.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), the film centres on Mike Howell (Eisenberg), who is a renowned stoner, wanting to marry his stoner girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). He has no recollection of the fact that he is, in fact, a highly skilled government agent who »

Updated: Clear eyes, full heart? Not so much.

While Caitlyn Jenner’s acceptance of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at Wednesday night’s ESPYs drew cheers from the crowd, “Friday Night Lights” creator Peter Berg was evidently jeering.

The “Lone Survivor” director shared a meme on Instagram, circulated by the Facebook account Main Stream Media Sponsor Boycotts, slamming Jenner’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award win. The image contains side-by-side photos of Jenner and U.S. Army veteran Gregory D. Gadson.

“One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Guess which man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by Espn?” the text read. “Yup,” Berg captioned his post, simply.

Later on Thursday, however, Berg backtracked after fielding considerable criticism on the Web. In another Instagram post, »

Is Minka Kelly Really Dating Sean Penn? Actress Breaks Silence on the Rumors!

15 July 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron seemingly just split up, but is he already romancing Minka Kelly? That was the rumor after he joined the Friday Night Lights star and some of her friends in celebrating her 35th birthday last month at The French Laundry in Napa Valley, one of the hottest reservations in the culinary world since it opened. The restaurant is super romantic, so even though they were part of a group, the story somehow turned into the newly single Penn treating Kelly to a pricey dinner as a first date. And though the lack of subsequent sightings caused the rumor to fizzle somewhat, Kelly must have been catching up on her tabloids because she just took to Twitter today to address the speculation that she and »

13 July 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s acting races are the most competitive in years, which makes predicting a risky proposition. Still, we couldn’t resist hazarding a guess at who’ll be celebrating on Thursday. These are our predictions for the actors and actresses in the drama categories. Click to see our picks for those in the running for the comedy series categories.

Drama Actor:

Adman Don Draper found bliss — and bought the world a Coke — in the final moments of AMC’s “Mad Men,” all but guaranteeing Jon Hamm an acting nod for the role. (Will he finally earn that elusive trophy? That’s for another column.) Hamm may once again have to fend off Kyle Chandler, who played a tormented brother in Netflix’s family drama “Bloodline” and won the category in 2011 for “Friday Night Lights.” Bob Odenkirk found the heart in »

That 'True Detective' gunfight was stunning, but did it make any sense?

13 July 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "True Detective" coming up just as soon as I'm louche... Of all the celebrated aspects of "True Detective" season 1, the only part to land the show any major Emmys was the celebrated single-take action sequence at the end of "Who Goes There." Short of trying to do a whole episode in what appears to be a single take (which "The X-Files" already did 17 years ago), the only way to top Rust's escape through the projects would be to expand the scope of the action. And that's exactly what we get in the climax of "Down Will Come" (like "Who Goes There," the fourth episode of the season), as a botched raid on the hideout of a man who pawned some of Caspere's jewelry led to a spectacular action set piece involving automatic weapons fire, chases on foot, car and bus, deaths of cops (including Teague Dixon, »

Will Hugh Laurie Finally win Emmy for 'Veep' after so many losses for 'House'?

7 July 2015 10:42 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Could Hugh Laurie finally win an Emmy this year? He joined the cast of "Veep" this season as Tom James, the vice presidential nominee in Selina Meyer's election campaign. But by the time Laurie took the role, he already had plenty of experience as a candidate. He received six nominations for starring in the Fox medical drama "House" and a seventh for producing the series, but he never won. -Break- Last year's Emmys contest champ says 'Modern Family' should watch out for 'Veep' Laurie's "House" character, an irascible medical sleuth with a drug problem, may have alienated Emmy judging panels with his snark when they viewed his sample episodes. They often prefer their stars to be either heroic (Kyle Chandler in "Friday Night Lights," for instance) or full-blown monsters (James Gandolfini in "The Sopranos," Bryan Cranston in "Breaking Bad"). Garden-variety jerks don't fare quite »
