This week, Neil Calloway suggests some films that would work well as TV shows…
With the new series of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now underway, the Limitless TV show having just debuted in the Us, and talk of a Game of Thrones movie being made (later denied). There’s even a TV show (the second, following a short-lived 1990 show) of the John Hughes/John Candy classic Uncle Buck coming soon. Add in the Minority Report TV show, and the just announced Lethal Weapon series and we have truly entered the age of the TV and film crossover.
The line between TV and film is growing smaller. The “small screen” is no longer seen as a step down from the cinema, largely because our TVs are no longer small, and people are watching what awful people call “content” in the same way – streaming it to their TV, laptop or tablet.

Sir, I'm going to be smoking here," Ben Mendelsohn says, brandishing his cigarette carton at a fellow diner on the less-than-roomy terrace. "Just, you know, Fyi." It's a Saturday morning, and he's sitting out back of a neighborhood patisserie in tranquil west London, the sort of quirky-decor joint that would be rejected by Wes Anderson for being a little too Wes Anderson-ish. Anyone who's seen the 46-year-old Australian actor on screen, where he's portrayed assorted cads, slimeballs and psychos with unsettling intensity, would probably be more likely to tell »
Texas forever, indeed! Scott Porter (a.k.a Jason Street) introduced his baby boy, McCoy, to two members of his "Friday Night Lights" family on Tuesday: Matt Lauria (Luke Cafferty) and Gaius Charles (Brian "Smash" Williams). "Good friends...livin' large in Texas"...and babies. #TexasForever@MattLauria @GaiusCharles," the proud papa captioned the picture on Instagram. "Good friends...livin' large in Texas"...and babies. #TexasForever @MattLauria @GaiusCharles A photo posted by skittishkid (@skittishkid) on Sep 29, 2015 at 7:43am Pdt It seems little McCoy had made quite an entrance when he was born in May. Porter's wife, Kelsey Mayfield, gave birth to their son after a whopping 44-hour labor. He was 8 lbs., 5 oz. and 20.5 inches long. Judging by this photo, this little one seems to have already charmed his dad's famous friends! Porter talked about his former costars at this year's Comic-Con, saying, "It's all about finding the moments when you can catch up with people. »

Scott Porter's son is already one popular little boy! The Friday Night Lights star introduced his baby, named McCoy Lee Porter, to two of his former co-stars, Gaius Charles and Matt Lauria. The actor shared an adorable picture of the moment on Twitter and WhoSay, writing, "Good friends...livin' large in Texas"...and babies. #TexasForever @MattLauria @GaiusCharles." It was quite the all-male reunion! While all three have moved on to other projects, it's awesome to see how close they still are. Working on the NBC hit show must have left quite the effect on them, as Porter's tweet references Tim Riggins' (Taylor Kitsch) famous words, with the addition of "and babies," of »
Damon Lindelof wears his heart on his sleeve, which at once makes him an ideal person to run a show like "Lost" or "The Leftovers," and the absolute last person you would want to wish that burden on. He holds nothing back, whether in his writing or in his discussion of his writing, and he takes every criticism of his work very deeply. (He quit Twitter two years ago because it wasn't healthy for him anymore to wake up every day to people cursing at him and demanding six years of their lives back.) That openness and sincerity was on display in "Leftovers" season 1. The show was despised by some for being too depressing, too slow, too opaque, and spending far too much time with the mute, chain-smoking members of the Guilty Remnant cult. But it was adored by others (like me) who fell right into the show's parallel world — one just like ours, »

“I was very surprised, honestly,” Hamm told reporters backstage after his big win. “I really don’t remember anything that I said, other than I think I said, ‘Thank you.’ … After I made my hilarious joke of climbing onto the stage the way that I chose to, I realized that people were clapping for me, and I was mortified.”

So let's tally up some of the highs and lows of tonight's Emmy awards (here are all your winners): Jon Hamm finally won an Emmy for playing Don Draper. Amy Poehler never won an Emmy for playing Leslie Knope. Viola Davis made history by becoming the first African-American actress to win a drama lead actress Emmy, and gave a scorching, beautiful speech about it. "Game of Thrones" made history by winning the most Emmys in a single year for anyone series, but for its weakest season to date. Andy Samberg bombed in the room as host, though seemed to be doing much better with a certain brand of comedy fan at home. HBO absolutely dominated, walking away with the winners for best comedy ("Veep"), best drama ("Game of Thrones"), best made-for-television movie ("Bessie"), and best limited series ("Olive Kitteridge"). And it'll almost certainly win the variety talk show award »

On this day in 1996, Oprah Winfrey launched her book club and announced that “The Deep End of the Ocean” by Jacquelyn Mitchard would be her first selection. Oprah’s Book Club quickly became a hugely influential force in the publishing world. The popular daytime talk show host's stamp of approval on books often sent them to bestseller lists. Other notable Sept. 17 happenings in pop culture history: • 1957: Louis Armstrong canceled his trip to the U.S.S.R.. Announcing that he would not participate in a U.S. government-sponsored tour of the Soviet Union, the jazz musician said, “The way they are treating my people in the South, the government can go to hell.” • 1967: The Who ended a nationally televised performance of “My Generation” with a literal bang — an explosion, caused by explosives packed into Keith Moon’s drum kit, rocked the stage, singed Pete Townshend’s hair and »

Todd Haynes is a director of quality over quantity, and the case looks no different with his latest film. Haynes startled audiences with his 1995 cult classic Safe, starring Julianne Moore, and since then has mostly focused on period pieces, with such film and television work including Far From Heaven, I’m Not There, "Mildred Pierce", and now, the 1950s set Carol. The film stars Cate Blanchett (who may win her second Oscar in a row after 2013's Blue Jasmine) and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Her) as lesbian lovers whose circumstances make their romance challenging and potentially heart-breaking. The trailer promises lots of drama and tears, and at least two incredible performances from its stars, in fact Rooney Mara already tied for Best Actress at this year's Cannes film festival.
