24 Times Coach Taylor Seems Too Good to Be True

18 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Friday Night Lights won over fans for plenty of reasons, but it's safe to say that Coach Taylor, in all his "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" glory, is toward the top of the list. This week actor Kyle Chandler turns 49, so to celebrate his birthday, we're looking back on all the reasons his character, Coach Taylor, is so lovable. For one thing, there's his incredible halftime speeches, which could sometimes make you cry and sometimes make you want to jump up and chase after your dreams. And, yes, for another thing, he's pretty easy on the eyes, too. (Let's get real: hot Tim Riggins moments weren't the only scenes to make fans swoon.) In honor of Chandler's birthday, find out which Friday Night Lights character you should date, then relive the 24 times Coach Taylor seems almost too good to be true. »

7 actresses land on new True Detective season 2 shortlist

15 September 2014 10:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Contrary to reports citing that actresses like Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Rachel McAdams (About Time) were close to signing deals to appear on the hotly anticipated second season of True Detective, their names do not appear on a new shortlist released by TheWrap. Today the site revealed the names of seven actresses currently vying to fill one of the series’ leading roles.

The actresses in question are, Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) and Jessica Biel (Total Recall).

The actresses have reportedly been “invited back to read this week for the coveted role.” Moss and McAdams could very well still be in the running, but with writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto now focusing on auditioning a new group of actresses, he’s clearly taking all options into consideration. »

'Sons of Anarchy' star Theo Rossi says it's 'total chaos and full survival mode' coming up for Juice

15 September 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Ever since he turned on the club back in season 4, Juice Ortiz has been the Sons of Anarchy character you love to hate. Or is it hate to love? Or is it both? Because while Juice is a man that has made some downright terrible decisions as a member of Samcro, he also seems like a good guy deep down. As a result, viewers have been left to alternate between wanting to see Juice pay for his sins (like killing a fellow Son) and hoping he can get a fresh start. Theo Rossi, the man who plays Juice, loves hearing »

Season finale review: 'The Leftovers' - 'The Prodigal Son Returns'

7 September 2014 8:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Leftovers" wrapped up its first season earlier this evening. A review of the finale coming up just as soon as we have different physiques... In the end, it was the goddamn dog that wrecked me. Love it or hate it — and 50-odd savage minutes of "The Prodigal Son" absolutely affirmed my love for it — "The Leftovers" isn't really like anything else on television, past or present. Structurally, it has a passing resemblance to a few other series (including Damon Lindelof's previous one). But in terms of tone and substance, as well as its focus on the emotional and spiritual health of its characters far ahead of any questions of plot, it's an original. Even with the book to adapt(*), there was no real template for Lindelof and Tom Perrotta to follow in crafting a finale for this season. (*) And, for what it's worth, the finale pretty much exhausts »

Connie Britton Says It's Hard Being A Single Parent, Would Love To Have A Partner!

3 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Connie Britton has a lot on her plate! The "Nashville" beauty covers the October issue of Redbook magazine, where she opens up about having career while being a single parent, and addresses Gwyneth Paltrow's controversial comments about the hardships of raising children in Hollywood. The 47-year-old -- who looks stunning in the accompanying photo spread -- tells the mag that she wishes she had a partner to help her raise her 3-year-old son Eyob. "I would love to be doing this with a partner, and I want Eyob to have a father figure. But I also know that putting that kind of pressure on myself or on a relationship would be disastrous," Connie confesses. "It's funny—my married friends tell me all the time, 'What you have is so much easier.'  When you're doing it on your own, you don't have to [argue over] how you're raising the kids," she adds. »

Emmy Aftermath: The Repetitions, The Rules, The Fixes.

26 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Well hear we are the day after the 66th Emmy Awards... or was it the 65th? or 62nd? or 60? It gets so hard to tell what with their refusal to spread the wealth. This number may not be 100% accurate but from my rough calculations anyone/anything who won Emmys last night had, on average, two previous statues.

No matter how great any one performance or show is, is it seems downright criminal to only honor that one thing. Think of how many people couldn't have Emmys for acting because of, say, Bryan Cranston's 5 statues for Walter White. I wish more voters would think of it that way. There's no argument among anybody who has watched it, even off and on like myself, that he didn't do great work but is his work 5 times greater than Jon Hamm's best work as Don Draper? 3 times greater than Michael C Hall's work as Dexter? »
