A review of tonight's "True Detective" coming up just as soon as I support feminism by having body image issues... "But us, the investigation... I don't think it's supposed to work." -Ray "Night Finds You" could be a tricky episode for me to write about, since it ends on a cliffhanger with Ray getting shot in the chest by Caspere's killer (or by another man with a very particular bird mask fetish), and since you know I've seen next week's episode and am therefore aware whether Ray lives or dies. Fortunately, I don't need to dance around what I do and don't know, and what I'm comfortable hinting at, because I can share exactly how I reacted in the moments immediately after I finished watching this one: "Huh. I was not expecting that." If Velcoro is dead, then all the time spent trying to cast that role represents a classic »

"Nurse Jackie" has concluded its seven-season run on Showtime. I have a few thoughts on the finale, followed by a long conversation with showrunner Clyde Phillips, coming up just as soon as this door gets locked for the first time in centuries... "Nurse Jackie" is a show that, by the nature of its lying drug addict protagonist and the world she lived in — and the fact that it was an ongoing series that brought Showtime several awards along the way — was always going to be repetitive on some level: Jackie does something stupid, gets caught, finds a way out of it, and on and on. The series' better periods — including much of this final season — involved Jackie being forced to deal with the consequences of her actions, even if the promise of renewal brought with it the promise of another escape and another backslide. (Phillips talks about this early in the interview. »

The DC Universe's next animated film, Justice League: Gods and Monsters is hitting blu-ray next month, but before it hits, you can check out the first clip from the film, showing how the alternate reality team handles the world...
I'm very excited to see what Justice League: Gods and Monsters has to offer. It's a very different take on the heroes we all know and love, and DC's animated films are almost always impressive and fun to watch. So this little adventure should be interesting indeed, especially based on this first clip:
Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you’ve never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod’s blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. »

It looks like Matt Damon (The Martian) and Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips) won't be the only familiar faces returning for Bourne 5. Deadline is reporting that Julia Stiles (Dexter) has closed a deal to reprise her role as Nicky Parsons in Universal's next Bourne adventure. Stiles is the only cast member, outside of Damon, to appear in all three of the original Bourne trilogy films. Her character, Nicky, started out as a Treadstone technician before becoming one of Jason Bourne's most trusted allies/potential love interest throughout the course of the trilogy. Additionally, we may also have some news on who Jason Bourne may be going up against when he returns to the big screen in 2016. Jeff Sneider of The Wrap is reporting that Viggo Mortensen (The Lord Of The Rings) has been offered the lead villain role. This latest news comes a few weeks after Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) was »
A version of this story first appeared in a special Emmy issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. For years, the Emmys’ line between supporting acting and guest acting has been blurry. Many began to question it when John Lithgow won a 2010 guest actor Emmy for a season of Dexter in which he appeared in every episode. And last year’s results apparently served as a tipping point: Uzo Aduba, who appeared in all but one episode of Orange Is the New Black’s season (and later won the best actress SAG Award for it), and Joe Morton, who appeared in every

More than 30 years after “The Right Stuff,” Philip Kaufman’s 1983 movie based on Tom Wolfe’s tome devoted to the Mercury 7 space program, “The Astronaut Wives Club” seems like inordinately fertile material for a primetime soap. Essentially a slow-motion version of the film, the main wrinkle in the ABC series — culled from Lily Koppel’s book — is viewing the story from the perspective of the women behind the men, who instantly became celebrities, with all the distractions that entails. While it’s not clear how long the producers can keep the concept aloft, the opening episodes certainly make for a splashy entry.
Written by Stephanie Savage and directed by Lone Scherfig, the premiere opens with the shrewd framing device of Alan Shepherd’s 1961 space flight, flashing back two years to when the program began. As part of a scheme envisioned by what amounts to Nasa’s perpetually apoplectic PR guru »
