“My many talents — one of them is not making speeches,” warned “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm at the start of his amusing address at Oceana’s eighth annual SeaChange Summer Party at Dana Point on Saturday night. “Especially when they’re not written by Matt Weiner. So this could get rough. Lower your expectations. Stay with me… if I have any trouble, I’m going to get Kiernan Shipka up here and she’s going to sing a song — she’s way better at this than I am.”
But the night’s beloved special guest — joined at the whimsical “Mad for the Oceans”-themed fundraiser by his “Mad Men” co-stars January Jones, Kiernan Shipka and Michael Gladis, as well as actors Sam Waterston, Beth Behrs, Aimee Teegarden and Oscar Nunez — went on to disprove his humble speechmaking claim.
“A very famous American named Ambrose Bierce, a fellow Midwesterner who also moved out to the Pacific, »

Despite playing everything from dastardly villains to wounded souls over his 38-year career, a certain theme keeps coming up for Bruce Greenwood; authority. He’s played multiple presidents, doctors and military men in his time and with good reason. Capable of bringing a rare balance of kind-hearted but stern gravitas to his roles, Greenwood shone in the likes of Star Trek, Flight and Mad Men, with his recent turn as Lieutenant Colonel Jack Johns in Good Kill continuing the trend.
Casting its beady eye onto the world of drone warfare, Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill isn’t your typical war movie. Reuniting Gattaca writer-director with leading man Ethan Hawke, the film takes place far from an explosive warzone, but raises questions about this controversial and largely unexplored subject.
How does Good Kill differ from other war movies?
It takes place in Las Vegas, where a lot of the drone pilots are stationed. »

With the forthcoming Fantastic Four movie about to arrive in cinemas, Neil Calloway looks at a doomed attempt to start the franchise…
The latest Fantastic Four film is the second attempt to reproduce the comic characters on the big screen; everyone knows about the film made in 2005 and its 2007 sequel, both of which did respectable, if not stratospheric business at the box office.
Less well-known is the 1994 film The Fantastic Four. The 1990s were an odd time for films based on Marvel Comics; 1990 saw the release of a Captain America movie starring the son of the guy who wrote The Catcher in the Rye. Marvel seemed to be concentrating more on animated television shows than big budget live action films, and those of you who watched the first episode of the Flickering Myth Movie Show will know that various Marvel properties were owned by different studios in the 1990s, before »

Playing House is back! While that's totes kewl in and of itself—fans and critics campaigned hard for USA to bring back the comedy from Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair—what makes this news even greater is the show hasn't missed a beat. Your girls are back and better than ever. The show picks up a few months after the birth of baby Charlotte and Maggie (Parham) and Emma (St. Clair) are well into the swing of mommyhood.

Mark this down in your gournal: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is available today, bringing the counselors of Camp Firewood back for more of the antics started in the 2001 film.
Is the premiere of the eight-episode Netflix series as satisfying as gooey s’mores roasted over an outdoor fire? Or is it as limp as a sweaty athletic sock left to molder under a bunk? In a moment, we’ll tell you our thoughts — and ask for yours. But first, a quick recap:
The action takes place on June 24, 1981, the titular opening to Camp Firewood’s summer season. »
Jon Hamm's Emmy nomination for Best Comedy Guest Actor this year is his first for playing the Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne in the Netflix series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," but of course it's not his first recognition from the TV academy. Counting his nominations this year for Best Drama Series and Best Drama Actor for "Mad Men," he's been nominated 16 times without ever winning. Will his Emmy drought finally end? He hopes his episode submission will do the trick: "Kimmy Makes Waffles," the first season finale. -Break- Ellie Kemper on playing 'optimistic' and 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' [Exclusive Video] Synopsis: Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) and her fellow Indiana Mole Women revisit the bunker where they were held captive for 15 years in the hopes of finding evidence against the Reverend.

Ormond, who also recently completed an acclaimed stint on AMC’s Mad Men, will star in Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Syfy drama Incorporated, a thriller set in a future where corporations have limitless power.

Ormond will play Elizabeth, an executive who relishes her power but also finds herself at the mercy of the corporate system’s demands. Her son-in-law Ben (Reign‘s Sean Teale) takes on that system to save his wife, »
Julia Ormond has joined “Incorporated,” Syfy’s futuristic espionage thriller pilot that hails from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions.
The project centers on Ben Larson (“Reign’s” Sean Teale), a young executive who risks everything to infiltrate an all-controlling corporate world to save the woman he loves. He ends up taking down the entire system — with deadly consequences.
Ormond will play Ben’s mother-in-law, Elizabeth. A powerful, whip-smart top executive who enjoys the perks of her position, she is also trapped in a ruthless system that demands results. The cast includes Georgina Haig (“Once Upon a Time”) as Ben’s wife Laura.
“Incorporated” is created and written by David and Alex Pastor (“Selfless,” “The Last Days”), who also will direct the pilot. Ted Humphrey (“The Good Wife”) will serve as executive producer-showrunner. Damon, Affleck and Jennifer Todd are also exec producing. »

If you plan to visit Camp Firewood for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series — which hits the streaming service at midnight on Friday — make sure to leave some room in your duffel bag for suspension of disbelief.
Executive producers David Wain and Michael Showalter, who also wrote the eight-episode limited series, are well aware that the camp’s counselors don’t look exactly as they did in 2001, when the feature film was released.
“When we made the original movie, we were 30 playing 16. Now, we’re in our forties playing 16. There’s only so much you can do to de-age that, »
From the copyright notice to the ominous voiceover, the latest trailer for Alex Ross Perry’s Queen of Earth plunges us into the world of ’60s/’70s arthouse psychological horror — mid-period Bergman, Polanski and Allen’s Interiors, for example. Here, Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men, Top of the Lake) retreats to the lakeside home of her best friend, played by Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), to recuperate after twin emotional jolts. There’s history, however — the lingering after effects of another weekend at this house spent one year earlier. Wrote Scott Foundas in Variety: The flashbacks in Queen of Earthh are like little Proustian […] »

They're not talking about it much, but it seems the network of "The Daily Show," "South Park" and (eyeroll) "Tosh.0" has finally decided to start seriously including women in its target demographic. The latest evidence: "Another Period," the Gilded Age-set mockumentary on Comedy Central, which is one of the channel's -- and this summer's -- best offerings. Creators Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome (the latter was half of the comic musical duo Garfunkel and Oates) mash up the Kardashians and "Downton Abbey" for their show about Newport's Bellacourt sisters: a vapid, cruel and endlessly wealthy duo who dine on “bald eagle and toast points” and treat the help like subhumans. You know you've got a quality show when Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men") agrees to play a chambermaid who has to carry around an overflowing bucket of sewage. But she's just one of many first-rate cast members here. "Another Period" is stuffed. »

Vincent Kartheiser, Mad Men’s Pete Campbell, plays the English separatist who served as Plymouth Colony’s governor for about 30 years in Nat Geo's first scripted miniseries Saints & Strangers. He says he had been looking to do a very different role than that he’d played the last seven or eight years. And, he told TV critics this afternoon at TCA, he knew “Nat Geo would honor and bring historical accuracy” to the story. On the heels of the record-breaking ratings for Killin… »
Movie trailers are starting to scare us a bit. Last week Lionsgate released a preview for "Freeheld" which made the gay rights drama look like a Lifetime movie. Today we have the first look at "Spotlight," the new ensemble drama centered on The Boston Globe's investigation into child abuse by Catholic priests and the Church's subsequent cover-up. We're hoping the movie is better than the first preview. The best news about "Spotlight" is that it brings a bunch of actors working at the height of their craft together. Mark Ruffalo has been pretty exceptional in everything he’s done since 2010's "The Kids Are All Right." Michael Keaton is coming off his first Oscar nomination for "Birdman." Rachel McAdams is hands down the best thing about "True Detective" season two. Across the cable dial Liev Schreiber's incredible work on "Ray Donovan" is making everyone forget about the bad movie roles he's landed recently. »

Netflix's equine comedy BoJack Horseman has been renewed for a third season. We've got all the info here...
Only 12 days after season 2 landed on Netflix, the content provider has speedily pushed ahead with BoJack Horseman season 3. There's a lot of horsepower behind the animated sitcom, it would seem. Arf.
The news reached the world via Facebook yesterday afternoon, with this image shared on BoJack's official page...
The existence of season 3 was also mentioned at the Television Critics Association press tour yesterday morning. At this event, Netflix also confirmed that they're working on a new original comedy - Aziz Ansari's Master Of None, all about a 30-year-old actor who's unsure what to do with his life.
As for BoJack, there's no official return date confirmed yet. Judging by previous form, though, we'd expect it to drop in the summer of 2016. Equally, we'd expect Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul »
For such a quiet weekend in terms of ticket sales, there were a lot of news stories coming out of the box office. Ant-Man passed $200 million, Terminator: Genisys passed $300 million and Pixels failed to get off the starting blocks. But there was another movie that hit an important milestone featuring those cheeky little yellow creatures.
Having earned an extra $66 million from its global markets, Minions has now passed the $500 million mark internationally. With a grand total of $761 million worldwide, Minions is the fourth biggest movie of 2015, but will unlikely topple Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7 or Jurassic World which have passed the billion dollar mark.

Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve »
