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. »

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.

The trio embarks upon an adventure that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. »

[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 »

Though their show turned out to have a decidedly non-prophetic title, fans of The Tomorrow People have something to look forward to, as former cast member Peyton List joins The Flash. Also known as Jane Sterling in Mad Men, the actress takes the role of Lisa, sister to Wentworth Miller’s Leonard Snart. The character is apparently a bit of a loose cannon and has her own supervillain identity in the DC Universe as the The Golden Glider, so expect The CW (who produced Tomorrow People) to place a big order at the spandex factory. List may also be hitting the ice rink, as the comics depict Snart as a lethal skater who uses these skills to deadly effect as her alter ego. Her main enemy is The Gritter (joke).
It seems Barry Allen has a stunning delivery of trouble heading his way in the coming weeks. List debuts in episode 16 early next year, »

15. Mad Men
Season 7, Part 1 of Mad Men should have been incredibly frustrating. Inspired by Breaking Bad, the show decided to have it final run split into two parts over two years and it originally sounded like an excuse to eke out the Don Draper franchise for another 12 months. We couldn't have been more wrong.

Earlier today, we learned that Peyton List (The Tomorrow People; Mad Men) had been cast as Leonard Snart's little sister Lisa a.k.a. the Golden Glider. Additionally, in a little bit of extra casting news, it's being reported that Nicholas Gonzalez (Sleepy Hollow; Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid) has been cast in a guest spot as Dante, the handsome and charming older brother of Carlos Valdes' Cisco. In addition to being the family favorite, he's also "a gifted pianist, who never reached his potential and secretly resents Cisco’s success." However, "When the brothers are thrust into extreme circumstances, Dante must rely on Cisco if they’re going to survive." It looks like the brothers may be coming face-to-face with the Golden Glider as Gonzalez, along with List, will also make his first appearance of the season in Episode 16: "Rogue Time." Gonzalez himself confirmed his casting in a tweet, »
The Flash has added yet another DC Comics character for Season 1, with Peyton List signing on to play Lisa Snart in The CW show's 16th episode, entitled "Rogue Time". Lisa Snart is the sister of Wentworth Miller's Leonard Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold. In the DC Comics, Lisa Snart eventually became one of the Rogues with her brother, transforming into the villainous character known as The Golden Glider.
While Leonard is a cold and calculating villain, Lisa is much more of a wild card, determined to show Leonard that she has what it takes to be one of the Rogues. Lisa is described as "sly, charming, and even a little sadistic," who isn't afraid to use her sexuality to get what she wants. Her alluring nature will reportedly "put her on a crash course" with S.T.A.R. Labs employee Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes).

This review contains spoilers.
Charlie Brooker’s been hiding something. Beneath that hugely entertaining mantle of misanthropy and idiocy-skewering invective, beats the charitable heart of a man who wants us all to care a little bit more. If there’s a lesson to White Christmas - a trio of Black Mirror stories about the consequences of loneliness and ostracisation - it would be to stop, think, and empathise.
White Christmas’ first story introduces us to Matt (Jon Hamm, whose matinee idol good looks cast him perfectly as the kind of swaggering, smug Yank an intensely British drama like Black Mirror would instantly mistrust). Alongside his day job, Matt runs a seedy side-line as a pickup artist coach and wank conductor to a voyeuristic choir of online pervs.
Taking Google Glass to its logical conclusion, »
Crime runs in the family on The Flash.
Captain Cold’s sibling is a wild child who’s anxious to prove to her brother that she’s got what it takes to be in his criminal gang. The sly and even a little sadistic Lisa isn’t afraid to use her sexuality to get what she wants, which will spell bad news for Cisco.
List — whose credits also include Mad Men and 90210 — will appear in Episode 16, titled “Rogue Time. »
Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror: White Christmas is set to air on Channel 4 tonight, and to whet our appetites a clip from the feature-length special has arrived online, which we’ve got for you right here…
