Pop Quiz: When did Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston last take home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series? If you guessed 2013, 2012 or 2011 — a red ‘X’ and a loud ‘bzzzt’ are being sent in your direction.
This isn’t to say the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences hasn’t been good to Cranston — after all, he snagged the statuette in 2008, 2009 and 2010. But after sitting out 2011 due to ineligibility (Kyle Chandler triumphed that year for Friday Night Lights), Cranston has been beaten the last two Emmy seasons by Homeland‘s Damian Lewis and The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels. »
There has been a long history of girls playing the title role in "Peter Pan," so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that NBC's "Peter Pan Live!" has found its leading lady on HBO's "Girls." NBC announced on Wednesday (July 30) morning that Allison Williams will play Peter Pan in the network's second live musical, which will air on December 4. Williams will appear opposite Christopher Walken, who was previously cast as the nefarious Captain Hook. "Allison Williams is a major find," blurb executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. "She will reinvent the iconic role of Peter Pan with her wit, her warmth, her dynamic flying and her wonderful musical abilities. The score will be sung beautifully and introduced to a whole new generation of families." Adds NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt, "We couldn’t be happier that Allison Williams is our Peter Pan. She’s a lovely rising star on the »

That old saying about “three’s a crowd” doesn’t apply to Emmy statuettes on your mantle. Which is exactly why Homeland‘s Claire Danes will be hoping to score her third consecutive win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2014 ceremony.

Coming off the Showtime thriller’s uneven third season, though, Danes is hardly a lock. Among her competitors are 2011 champ Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), who got left off the ballot in 2013 but roared back into contention this year with the CBS drama’s jaw-dropping, »

He's been nominated for Best Drama Actor every year since the show first competed in 2008.

Sunday night’s episode of Masters of Sex, titled “Fight,” was one of the series’ best. It stuck the show’s two main characters, Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and his assistant/lover Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), in a single hotel room and then let them batter out their anxieties and anger through flirtation, role play, and sex, all while an actual boxing match rages on TV.
In TV parlance, episodes like “Fight,” where characters are restricted to a few sets, are often called “bottle episodes”—they’re cheaper to make (you don’t have to build new sets or »

Warning: The following interview with Anna Camp includes major spoilers about True Blood up through the most recent episode, “Karma,” which aired July 27.Sarah Newlin, on the run from the Yakuza and vampires alike, may have found her salvation: her own blood. If she can cure her own vampire sister of Hep-v, then who else might want a little taste? (And more questions: Will only a little taste suffice? Just how much blood does Sarah have to give up to cure an infected vamp of the disease, and will it work for vamps with accelerated cases?) Vulture discussed the matter with Anna Camp, the actress who plays Sarah, and asked how her character might factor into True Blood’s endgame, what Sarah’s sexual partners reveal about her, and how Sarah would match up with Don Draper on Mad Men. What’s it like to be back on True Blood »

The world on “Person of Interest” has certainly changed now that the Samaritan Al surveillance program has exerted its reign over the country, which was highlighted in the new sneak peek for the upcoming season 4, unveiled Saturday at Comic-Con ahead of the show’s panel.
Warner Bros. released the video online as well, which combines footage from season three and the upcoming season and clocks in at about five minutes. Reese, Finch, Shaw and Root have been forced into hiding with Samaritan on in full force and onto them, and they assume the identities of average citizens to hide in plain sight.
Showing that even the Machine has a sense of humor, Root and Shaw have become cosmetics counter girls in their new roles, and Reese appears to be a cop. “Mad Men” actress Cara Buono has joined as a mystery woman and makes her first appearance in the teaser, »

The Mad Men alumna bookends the preview — which premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con — appearing in scenes with In Plain Sight‘s Fred Weller. But it’s the video’s meaty middle that you came for, a thrilling melange of Season 3 highlights plus plenty of brand-new footage, including Sam and Root lying low in a chic department store, Elias looking none too happy to see Reese again, »
A long time ago in another TV galaxy — we’re talking eight, even 10 years ago — the “guest star” appearance was a pretty well-defined event; the famous Hollywood actor or Broadway actress would turn up on an episode of a hit show, interact briefly with the well-oiled cast, toss off a few bon-mots, and depart, never to be seen again.
That’s all changed. Today, series creators, writers and showrunners carefully craft stories and arcs for “guest” spots, as evidenced by such varied turns as Jane Fonda’s in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Nathan Lane’s in “Modern Family,” Joe Morton’s in “Scandal,” Diana Rigg’s in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Beau Bridges in Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” Bob Newhart’s in CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and Paul Giamatti’s in PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” all Emmy nominees.

From Lori Grimes to Wesley Crusher, Den Of Geek's writers defend some of TV fandoms’ least-loved fictional characters…
The force of geek love is strong. So strong, in fact, it’s basically a Newton’s Third Law of Motion kind of deal. Each instance of geek love leads to the simultaneous, opposite force of geek hatred. Wherever a TV character is adored, another will be despised. For every fan of Angel, there’s a critic of Riley Finn. For every Rick and Shane fan, there’s someone shouting “boo” at Lori Grimes. For every Captain Picard nut, there’s a person scribbling devil horns and moustaches on pictures of Wesley Crusher. Geeks love and geeks hate. It is known.
As a great mind once said though, “hate leads to suffering”. That’s why »

A full trailer has been released for writer and director Justin Simien's Sundance hit, Dear White People. I've heard a lot of fantastic things about this movie, which is a comedic satire about race relations in modern America. I really like the humor that I'm seeing in the trailer, and this looks like a really entertaining movie worth checking out. Here's a synopsis for the movie:
Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

Billed as a “high-concept” romantic comedy/drama, The One I Love stars Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, Top Of The Lake) and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, Jeff Who Lives At Home) as a despondent couple who are sent to a beautiful vacation spot to work out their relationship, under the advice of their therapist (Ted Danson, Three Men & A Baby).

The film had some stellar reviews at Sundance at the start of the year, with The Playlist saying that the film “may seem modest, its execution is really remarkable.” Behind the camera for his feature-length debut here is Charlie McDowell, who is the son of Mary Steenburgen and Malcolm McDowell, and the film is written by Justin Lader.
