Game Of Thrones actor Nonso Anozie has moved from his portrayal of Xaro Ahoan Daxos on the hit show, to a recurring role in the CBS adaptation of James Patterson’s novel, Zoo. The stand-alone book, co-written with Michael Ledwidge, was published in 2012 to positive reviews – many of which cited the perceived plausibility of the plot.
The earth-bound science fiction story centres on scientist Jackson Oz, who is systematically dismissed by his colleagues in the fields of ecology and biology after focusing years of research on animals attacking humans. Believing there to be an increasing pattern, Oz travels to Botswana, where he manages to survive a large-scale lion attack. Teaming with fellow survivor, and former diplomat, Chloe Tousignant, he works to uncover why the animal world has begun what is seemingly a united effort to remove humans from the ecosystem completely.

What a gem! Some red carpet trends require a bit of work, (see: abs of steel for crop tops, or supermodel height for wide leg trousers), but luckily, dressing in jewel tones is an effortless practice that always looks good.

Mere minutes separated the moments when Mad Men showrunner Matthew Weiner made the comment, "Nationalism drives people apart, but entertainment brings people together," while accepting the 2014 International Emmy Founders Award inside the New York Hilton Midtown, and when the verdict to not indict a Ferguson police officer for the shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown was announced, inciting protests and riots nationwide. Nevertheless, the creator of the AMC drama was visibly emotional about receiving the honor — "I knew I was gonna win, what am I gonna get emotional about? I didn't beat anyone!" — and tried

Scott Cohen’s directorial feature debut, Red Knot, was helmed on a 23-day jaunt along the coasts of Argentina and Antarctica. Sounds like quite the feat, especially considering it’s Cohen’s first shot at a feature. However, his prior work as a photographer enabled him to harness the beautiful landscapes explored by his two stars, Vincent Kartheiser and Olivia Thirlby.
As a pair of adventure seekers, the newly-married couple opt to take a belated honeymoon cruise. I say cruise loosely because their trip actually takes place on board a research vessel headed for Antarctica. Like all flicks set at sea, or in confined spaces (or both if we’re talking about a submarine pic), tension begins to chip away at the happy couple.
This first preview offers at glimpse at the sheer breathtaking locales Cohen was able to lens. His choice of destination for the shoot is winning, as »

The cast of AMC’s much-ballyhooed drama “Mad Men” ought to be recognized by Emmy voters, the show’s creator and executive producer said Monday.
“One of my great frustrations is that they haven’t been recognized more,” said Matthew Weiner, speaking during a question-and-answer session organized by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. “None of these actors has ever won an Emmy and they are the gold standard.”
Weiner has been named the 2014 recipient of the International Emmy Founders Award.
“I still feel like their contribution has been unrecognized,” he added.
Weiner said his cast – largely unknown when “Mad Men” first appeared in July of 2007 – “kind of did it on their own.” He cited the HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers” as a model for his ad-world drama, noting that “Brothers” did not make use of a marquee star and yet still managed to be successful at home and in international markets. »

This story first appeared in the Dec. 5 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. There was a time when the industry paid about as much attention to the International Emmys as it does the best documentary short category at the Oscars — which is to say: none whatsoever. The only buzz the foreign version of the Emmys typically got was for the Hollywood flash that came in the form of its presenters and lifetime achievement honorees. This year's Founders Award winner, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, will enjoy a substantial portion of the spotlight, alongside series stars Christina Hendricks, John Slattery and

Nearly five years after the film was shot, the first trailer has been released for Red Knot. Olivia Thirlby (Dredd 3D) and Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men) star in this drama about a couple who rediscover themselves while sailing abroad.
Set on a research vessel en route to the icy wastes of Antarctica, Peter Harrison (Vincent Kartheiser) is a writer sharing his dream of going to the ends of the earth with his wife (Olivia Thirlby ). The confines of the ship and the wide open spaces of the southern ocean set the stage for an unraveling marriage encountering their first rite of passage as a couple. Red Knot is a narrative feature film that invites a broader conversation around themes that are at once universal and personal: our closest relationships and the wilderness that lies between us.
More Olivia Thirlby is always a good thing. She's one of our best actresses and we need a lot more of her on the silver, and smaller, screen. Same with Vincent Kartheiser, who we don't see enough outside of weasel roles (Mad Men) or villainous archetypes (In Time), both of which he plays rather well. He's not completely out of those woods in this Red Knot trailer, but perhaps the circumstances in the film will add a few layers of nuance to his eternally wandering eye. The film was shot by director Scott Cohen over five years ago, but is now being readied for release. And it looks gorgeous. Hit the jump for the Red Knot trailer and a few words from Thirlby on the movie's production. The film also stars Billy Campbell and opens at IFC in New York on December 5th.

Hey Hollywood, we need more Olivia Thirlby. The talented actress isn't seen in movies or television as often as we'd like, so here's a pleasant surprise before the weekend—a new movie starring Thirlby. We hadn't heard of this one, and even more, it looks pretty damn good. Directed by Scott Cohen, and co-starring Vincent Kartheiser ("Mad Men") and Billy Campbell, the movie follows a young married couple who take a belated honeymoon aboard a research vessel bound for Antarctica. But as they go deeper into the journey, their relationship begins to fray. This looks like a particularly good character piece, coupled with stunning cinematography from the movie that was shot off the coasts of Argentina and Antarctica. "Red Knot" opens in limited release on December 5th. Watch below. »
