Will there be a seventh season of Lena Dunham's HBO series, Girls? While Girls has not been cancelled, The L.A. Times reports that during a morning show podcast, Dunham indicated Girls may bow after season six.
Season five of the half-hour comedy, which also stars Allison Williams (The Mindy Project), Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet (Mad Men), premieres in January 2016, so Dunham still has plenty of time to decide.
Is season six truly the end for Girls? The L.A. Times quotes Dunham as saying: "Never say never, but that is the way we're thinking about it right now and we're starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines of these particular young women.”
This is not the first time Dunham has suggested that season six will be the final one for Girls. In »
Meet some of the best directors working today, who haven't gone down the blockbuster movie route...
Ever find it a bit lame when the same big name directors get kicked around for every high profile project? Christopher Nolan, Jj Abrams, maybe the Russo Brothers? With so much focus on blockbuster films these days, getting a major franchise job seems like the main acknowledgement of success for a filmmaker. And yes, both the financial and creative rewards can be great. But there are plenty of other directors out there, doing their own thing, from art house auteurs to Dtv action specialists.
Here are 25 examples.
Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen Lee Hardcastle’s ultraviolent claymations shared on social media. He first started getting noticed for his two-minute remake of The Thing, starring the famous stop motion penguin Pingu. Far from just a cheap one-joke mash-up, »
Exclusive: Melinda Page Hamilton, best known as the wife of the real Don Draper who befriends Jon Hamm’s identity thief in Mad Men, has been cast as the female lead opposite Kevin Bacon in Hartford Stage’s world premiere production of Rear Window. Playwright Keith Reddin’s adaptation is based on the Cornell Wollrich short story (about a man confined to his New York apartment who believes he’s witnessed a murder), which also served as the basis of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954… »
That's right: Brian Blessed and Jon Hamm will feature in the same episode of Toast of London. Fingers crossed they get in the recording booth and shout "Fire the nuclear weapons!" while Clem Fandango looks on.
For those not in the know, Toast of London is a thoroughly bonkers sitcom that sees Matt Berry (The It Crowd, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh) as a bumbling actor whose distinctive voice sets him apart from pretty much everyone - apart from Brian Blessed, that is.
Jon Hamm, incidentally, will play himself in the show, with the joke »

Ray Donovan wrapped its most creatively satisfying season to date Sunday with a three-years-in-the-making moment. In the episode’s closing minutes, Liev Schreiber’s titular fixer at long last opened up about the childhood sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of Father O’Connor (the fact that his sounding board was also a man of the cloth and the setting of his emotional breakthrough was a church heightened the sequence’s potency).

Kicking this year’s Fantastic Fest off, is director Osgood Perkins’ feature debut, February, a film that refuses to play today’s rules, instead opting to tell a slow burn and somewhat very non-linear tale of a young woman slowly becoming subject to the devil himself.
Focusing on Kat (Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka), a fragile young girl staying at a boarding school during the school’s break, and waiting for his parents to arrive, February has the ability to instantly let you know that you’re in for a slow yet entrancing, non-linear story of demonic alliance and eventually very brutal bloodshed. It’s a film that gives you small pieces of a very large puzzle, glimpses of twists and revelations that leave you as a viewer talking about the film for Hours, completely and utterly under its spell. Along with Kat, who longs for her soon to arrive »

"Hail Satan." Those two words put together create an unnerving feeling for anyone who sees – or hears – them regardless of one's own personal, religious beliefs. Just the thought of the Devil's presence emits an air of discomfort that horror films have been riding for nearly century. That same level of unease - and that troublesome, two-word phrase - haunts every scene of Osgood Perkins' feature debut, February. Told through disjointed chronology, Perkins's film is difficult to piece together as you're watching. The unsettling and atmospheric results that remain after February has ended and left the viewer are undeniable, though. Perkins' film cuts between two stories. In one we are introduced to Kat (Kiernan Shipka of “Mad Men”), a young woman at an all girls boarding school whose parents haven't picked her up for a long, holiday break. Along with Rose (Lucy Boynton), another student who is stranded over the break, »

With Mad Men now a part of televisual history, Christina Hendricks has more time to take film roles. She’s now in negotiations to join high school-set comedy Fist Fight.The New Line comedy has a script from Van Robichaux and Evan Susser, and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Richie Keen directing. The basic concept finds Day as a mild-mannered English teacher who must man up when a colleague (Cube) at his less-than-top-notch school who thinks he’s trying to get him fired challenges him to a good old-fashioned punch-up. Keen will start the cameras rolling next month in Atlanta. Hendricks will be an intense drama teacher who has the hots for Cube, so come up with the steam jokes on your own time. She joins a cast that also includes Dean Norris, Jillian Bell and Tracy Morgan, who is returning to acting after a serious road accident. »

Coming off of his first Emmy win for portraying the iconic Don Draper on the final season of Mad Men, it looks like Jon Hamm’s next role will be one alongside everyone’s favorite absorbent and yellow sponge. According to Vulture, Hamm has signed on to voice a character named Don Grouper on Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants.
Similar to Draper, Grouper is “a charismatic head ad executive” with a “sharp mind and devastating charm.” Also, a report from Variety says that he works for ad agency Grouper, Goby & Koi, and the sea creatures on the show “[lap] up his words like overpriced organic honey.” A rough sketch of the character, courtesy of Nickelodeon, can be seen below…
Hamm’s episode, which features SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs going to Grouper for business advice, won’t air until 2016, but in the meantime expect more new episodes of SpongeBob to be released very soon. »

After seven seasons, Jon Hamm finally took home the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his beloved portrayal of Don Draper on AMC's Mad Men, with the show ending earlier this year.

Something creepy is happening at the Bramford Academy Catholic girls school. While it isn't exactly clear what is going on, it's very obvious that the snowy scenery isn't the only thing giving you chills in Osgood Perkins' icy thriller February. This is a very tense and mysterious psychological thriller that delivers on its promise to have the audience seriously creeped out. The film starts by introducing us to Kat (Kiernan Shipka - yes, that's Sally from Mad Men). Kat is a freshman at Bramford who is haunted by dreams of her parents' deaths. When they don't appear to pick her up for winter break, it's pretty clear that something is wrong. So Kat is left in the care of Rose (Lucy Boynton), an older girl...

Florent, Alan Cumming’s passion project about colorful New York restaurateur Florent Morellet, has found a new home. I’ve learned that Showtime has put in development the half-hour dark comedy project starring The Good Wife standout Cumming in the title role, written by Patricia Resnick (Mad Men, Nine To Five) and directed by The Good Wife‘s Rosemary Rodriguez. The trio originally set up the project at Sundance Channel last year. For Cumming, Florent is in second position… »
