Mary-Louise Parker, Peter Sarsgaard to star in provocative NBC miniseries

NBC has enlisted two acclaimed actors to star in its provocative upcoming miniseries The Slap. Mary-Louise Parker and Peter Sarsgaard will headline the complex family drama about what happens after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. “The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it,” according to the show’s official description.

Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds) will play Anouk, a close friend of Hector’s who’s the head writer on a TV show and is now dating the younger leading man. »

‘Scandal’s’ Dan Bucatinsky Talks Emmys, Lgbt Community at Outfest Film Festival

11 July 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scandal’s” Dan Bucatinsky stopped by the opening night of L.A.’s Outfest Film Festival to show support to the Lgbt community and to talk Emmys and his life after “Scandal.”

Bucatinsky won the Emmy last year for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for “Scandal,” but this year the Academy did not recognize the actor for his role as James Novak.

“I was snubbed,” he laughed. But the actor did give his congrats to former castmates Joe Morton, Kate Burton and Kerry Washington.

“’Scandal’ is something that was one of the most important career moves of my life and it was incredible. The cast will always be family to me,” he told Variety.

But life after “Scandal” looks promising for Bucatinsky, whose TLC show with writing partner Lisa Kudrow “Who Do You Think You Are?” received an Emmy nod yesterday.

John Gallagher, Jr. ("The Newsroom") is their son Christopher, Peter Mullan ("Top of the Lake") plays fellow teacher Jim O’Casey, Rosemarie DeWitt ("Mad Men") as a shut-in named Rachel Coulson, Zoe Kazan ("Ruby Sparks") as the pharmacist worker Denise Thibodeau, Ann Dowd ("Side Effects") as a family friend.

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

‘Thanks for Sharing’ Blu-ray Review (Scanbox Entertainment)

12 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad, Alecia ‘Pink’ Moore, Patrick Fugit | Written by Stuart Blumberg, Matt Winston | Directed by Stuart Blumberg

Stuart Blumberg, writer of Keeping the Faith, The Kids are All Right and The Girl Next Door, took to the director’s chair for the first time here, with Thanks for Sharing, a story of sex addiction starring the likes of Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad, Alecia ‘Pink’ Moore and Patrick Fugit. It’s a decent cast and Blumberg is a very good writer, so I was interested to see how he faired as a director, and how this mish-mashed, though very good, cast would do under his guidance.

Ruffalo plays Adam, a guy who we meet as he is celebrating his fifth year in sex addiction sobriety. His sponsor, and friend, Mike (Robbins) is also an addict who is juggling his job, »

Price: DVD $19.97, Blu-ray $24.99

Studio: HBO/Warner

Mark Ruffalo (l.) and Taylor Kitsch in The Normal Heart.

When writer Larry Kramer hosted a gathering of gay men at his home in 1981 to discuss the “gay cancer” that was plaguing their community, he effectively launched a series of events that would change the face of the Gay Rights Movement and American activism. In 1985, he immortalized the events in the groundbreaking drama The Normal Heart, which was later revived on Broadway in 2011, garnering five Tony Award nominations. Three decades after its Off Broadway debut, The Normal Heart arrives as an HBO film starring Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are All Right) and Julia Roberts (Eat Pray Love).

Adapted for the screen by Kramer and directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story), The Normal Heart tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s. »

Emma Watson and Miles Teller Circle 'La La Land'

5 June 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Emma Watson and Miles Teller are in early talks to star in writer-director Damien Chazelle's musical La La Land. Miles Teller starred in Damien Chazelle's breakthrough Sundance hit Whiplash, which took home both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award.

The story centers on a lonely, aspiring actress (Emma Watson), desperately trying to find her way in Los Angeles, who meets a jazz pianist named Sebastian (Miles Teller). While they both quickly fall for one another, they soon realize that balancing their artistic endeavors and a romantic relationship is not as easy as they thought.

The Wrap managed to obtain Damien Chazelle's "lookbook" for the movie, which includes the following statement about the story from the filmmaker.

"I'd like to make a contemporary musical about L.A., starting with the L.A. we know but slowly building to a vision of the city as romantic metropolis-one that »

ABC commissions supernatural drama

20 May 2014 10:08 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

A couple of years ago a friend of filmmaker Tony Ayres gave him a tantalising .what if. proposition: What if there was a small country town in Victoria where people who had been dead for up to 200 years came back to life?

That sparked an idea which he developed with writer Louise Fox and has evolved into Glitch, a six-part supernatural drama for the ABC. Screen Australia has agreed to co-fund the Matchbox Pictures production, which is due to start shooting in October.

The key character is the town.s cop, James, whose wife died from breast cancer two years earlier and reappears. Each episode will introduce a succession of undead characters. No director has yet been announced.

.We don.t often do high-concept supernatural drama in Australia,. Ayres tells If. .It.s my favourite genre. It will be a very Australian spin on the genre. We are looking for emotional truth. »

Lisa Cholodenko to Helm New Miniseries 'The Slap'

20 May 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It's been four years since Lisa Cholodenko's Oscar-nominated "The Kids Are All Right" hit theaters, and 2014 will finally see some new material from the director who, like so many others, is bringing her talents to television. Her miniseries "Olive Kittredge" is arriving on HBO later this year -- and has a knockout cast, including Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins and Zoe Kazan -- and now news has landed that she'll be involved in another series with a rather fascinating premise. Cholodenko will direct the first two of eight episodes (and produce the entirety) of NBC's "The Slap," which centers on an upsetting if seemingly minor domestic dispute -- a man slaps another couple's rambunctious child -- that balloons out of control. This is just the type of fodder that Cholodenko excels at (nuanced familial relationships and the fallout from overstepping boundaries) so count us excited. It's based on the 2011 Australian miniseries, »

The Dissolve Alfonso Cuarón might direct the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. The internet seems largely happy about this which puzzles me. I understand everyone likes money but isn't this a huge step backwards after Children of Men/Gravity gave us his full auteurist muscle unbeholden to someone else's franchise? I most definitely think so

The Kids Are All Right director will adapt Christos Tsiolkas' novel The Slap for Us network NBC, after it became one of the most-discussed books of recent years

Lisa Cholodenko on the new generation of female directors

Lisa Cholodenko, director of The Kids Are All Right, is to direct the opening episodes of The Slap, a TV adaptation of the controversial novel by Christos Tsiolkas to air on Us network NBC.

The 2008 novel became a reading group staple thanks to its fractious story of a father who slaps another family's misbehaving three-year-old son at a barbecue, setting off tensions and anger throughout the families present and bringing bigotry to the surface. It became an international bestseller, was longlisted for the Booker prize, and has already had one TV adaptation in its native Australia. While it garnered some excellent reviews, other critics were vocal in their opposition: India Knight called »
