Let’s face it: Jimmy Fallon is an okay if utterly predictable choice for Entertainment Weekly’s annual “Entertainer of the Year” title, which can occasionally become more of an honor for being widely-known and well-liked than, you know, being consistently entertaining. (Have they made a truly interesting choice since that three-year, Oscar-certified run of Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, and Denzel Washington from 2000-02?)
Rather than continue to pat the backs of those like Ben Affleck, Taylor Swift, Robert Downey, Jr., and J.K. Rowling – i.e. prominent pop culture presences and former “Entertainers of the Year” whose dominance over their respective industries is already deep and durable – let’s take a moment to honor some of our favorite hard-working actors and actresses who zig-zagged across mediums this year, making crucial contributions to the entertainment landscape, »

Directed by: Scott Cohen
Written by: Scott Cohen
A peaceful marvel of a drama studying an unraveling marriage on the brink of fading before it even started, Scott Cohen’s Red Knot sets in motion stifling inner conflicts against a beautiful backdrop of Antarctic landscape. Olivia Thirlby and Vincent Kartheiser star in the picture that took home the Fipresci Grand Jury prize at the Seattle International Film Festival. Stunning and grand in scope, the film may be too simplified for big multiplexes yet demand the respect of art houses. Absolutely dazzling to look at, the derailing love story of Peter and Chloe is overshadowed by the impression set forth by the Antarctic. Surely in the wheelhouse of the art photographer, Red Knot will be remembered purely for its cinematography. Like pulling over the side of the road and soaking in a beautiful sight, »

Not every TV show benefits from the binge-viewing model that Netflix and Amazon are building their streaming video businesses around. Some shows like "Mad Men" are better off being consumed only an episode a week, with plenty of time in between to savor and analyze what just happened. Others like "Homeland" (at its best) or even Netflix's flagship drama "House of Cards," traffic in crazy plot twists and cliffhangers that can lose their potency when you have the ability to immediately load up the next installment. But plenty of series improve greatly when watched in rapid succession, whether they were made with this new model in mind or not. In some cases, like "The Wire," it's incredibly useful to see a lot of episodes in a row just to figure out who the hell everybody is and what they're doing. In other cases, like "Parks and Recreation" or Amazon's new "Mozart in the Jungle, »

Manuel here opening the floor about some things in this first released pic from Guy Ritchie’s upcoming adaptation of the TV show, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., featuring Alicia Vikander, Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill due out next year. From this pic alone, Ritchie’s film is already making a case for “Best Looking Cast of a Motion Picture, 2015.” Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Debicki (!) and Jared Harris round up the cast.
Costumes by Joanna Johnston (Oscar nominated for Lincoln but also responsible for the dresses Mad and Hel don in Death Becomes Her!)
Some questions I couldn’t help asking:
2. Do Vikander’s shoulder scrapes suggest she’ll be given some action alongside her male co-stars?
3. Which suit do you think Cavill enjoys donning more: this beautiful plaid three-piece or his Superman one? »

★★★☆☆The feature debut from Mad Men's John Slattery (who plays the wonderfully urbane Roger Sterling in the hit AMC show), God's Pocket (2013) may not share the same air of sophistication as the stylish ad industry ratings winner, but this sleazy tale of small town Joes and two-bit hustlers is easily pulled through by its impressive ensemble cast. For his first film, Slattery calls on the talents of Mad Men co-star Christina Hendricks, the sorely missed Philip Seymour Hoffman (in his penultimate role), the always excellent Richard Jenkins and John Turturro, alongside a host of other familiar faces. Though missteps are made, Slattery strikes an effective balance between black comedy and noirish morbidity.

Star-studded award show or swanky airport lounge? It's all the same to Jon Hamm. Maybe he's been spending too much time in character as a bicoastal ad exec in a long-distance marriage, but the Mad Men actor couldn't help but quip about the hip setup inside the Beverly Hills Hilton at the People Magazine Awards. "Mostly I want to thank you all for welcoming me and all of us here at the first-class lounge at Lax. It's really nice," he joked while accepting the award for Television Performance of the Year - Actor on Thursday. "I have some flight updates. »

Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.

[Brightcove "3951725281001" "" "" "auto"] His Mad Men character, Don Draper, may drink Canadian Club whiskey and Old Fashioneds, but Jon Hamm has other ideas for what should be in a cocktail named after his tortured '60s ad exec character. Skip the gin and vodka - a mixed drink named after Don Draper would contain "misery, disappointment and ice," the 43-year-old said backstage at the People Magazine Awards Thursday night. With the final seven episodes of the AMC hit set to air in the spring, Hamm (who won the People Magazine Award for Television Performance of the Year - Actor) clearly has mixed feelings »

People magazine gave stars a reason to dress up Thursday with their first ever People Magazine Awards, where celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani showed up in their awards show best. The red carpet wasn't as stiff as, say, the Oscars though: Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss (who has previously proved she's not above flipping off the mani-cam) stuck out her tongue to the camera, while Devious Maids' Roselyn Sanchez forewent professional photographers in favor of snapping her own photo with a selfie stick. »

Channel 4 debuted their much-anticipated Christmas-themed Black Mirror special this week, and it was very much worth the wait. Black Mirror exists as one of those frustrating British show that trades short, three-episode seasons with yawning gulfs in between them for high quality offerings. It’s probably worth it (like the similarly formatted Sherlock), but the waiting and scarcity of episodes can be exhausting. Series three of Black Mirror is in fact coming, but they wanted to participated in another British tradition in the meantime, the extended Christmas Special, something we’ve seen from The Office to Doctor Who to Downton Abbey over the years. Though Black Mirror has poached familiar faces over the years for its ensemble casts, the Christmas Special is the first to pull someone really, truly recognizable for its main lead, Mad Men’s Jon Hamm. It’s also the first time the show has had an American actor/character in… »

Once word hit that Wentworth Miller had joined the cast of The Flash as Captain Cold, we knew that it was only a matter of time before the classic supervillain’s little sister, Golden Glider, joined the fray as well. Those suspicions have now been confirmed by Access Hollywood, as they report that Mad Men and The Tomorrow People actress Peyton List has been cast in the role.
Lisa Snart is a figure skater who took up the name Golden Glider when she joined her brother, and the other Rogues, in a life of crime. She was given a bit of an other-worldly update in the New 52 relaunch, however, as an explosion leaves her in a coma and an astral projection of her starts causing trouble for the scarlet speedster.
Golden Glider will make her small screen debut in the show’s sixteenth episode. Unfortunately, the synopsis provided doesn’t »

It looks like Christina Hendricks is dealing with her departure from Sterling Cooper & Partners by hitting the road. According to multiple sources, the Mad Men actress has joined the main cast of Roadies, a music-centric comedy created, written and to be directed by Jerry Maguire helmer Cameron Crowe for premium cable network Showtime.
Roadies follows the day-to-day life of individuals involved in a massively successful rock tour, as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes – the crew members who make each show happen. Hendricks will take on the meaty role of Shelli, the band’s production manager, who is ““ingenious, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it.”
Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Peter Cambor and Keisha Castle-Hughes are also on board the ensemble series in main roles, but Hendricks’ involvement just makes us more excited for what’s sure to be a »
