Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men” gay marriage controversy: "Hopefully we haven't done something too terrible in taste” "For us it was just a fun, silly idea that some people were taking kind of seriously, so that sort of surprised us,” says Cryer of the plan for Alan to marry Ashton Kutcher’s character. "But at the same time I understand. This is a time when our nation is changing so much. And let's remember, same-sex adoption is still illegal in some states so I can see why people would be nervous about it. And as long as the fight is still being fought they have a right to be sensitive about it.” Plus: Jon Cryer recalls when Charlie Sheen began going crazy on “Men,” Sheen says "I just think it makes sense” for him to return to “Men,” Cryer recalls being labeled “The Show Killer,” and Conchata Ferrell recalls auditioning for Berta. »

Of all the great movies the Oscars have shunned over the years, Drive's snub in 2012 was a tough one to take.
Ryan Gosling stars as the Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver in his most mesmerising performance since he was a Jewish neo-Nazi in 2001's The Believer. Carey Mulligan is the struggling single mum who Gosling falls for, and a between-Breaking Bad seasons Bryan Cranston plays his mechanic partner in crime.
Nicolas Winding Refn's direction is suave and daring; he follows the blood, sweat and tears of The Driver's journey with total badassness and ends up with something in between Taxi Driver and Michael Mann's Thief... And then there's the soundtrack. What a soundtrack.
So when Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe announced that he was curating a score of new music for the film masterpiece, you can understand the anger and confusion it sparked. But »
Dean Norris is set to dole out a new form of justice.
The “Breaking Bad” and “Under the Dome” actor will guest star on an upcoming episode of TBS’ “American Dad,” exec producer Matt Weitzman told Entertainment Weekly. He’ll play Stan’s new boss in a Nov. 10 episode titled “Big Stan on Campus.” Weitzman said that when Stan faces a leave of absence from the CIA, he finds a job as a campus security guard at Hayley’s community college, where Dean Norris’s character heads the force.
“American Dad” was picked up by TBS in 2013 after running on Fox for 10 seasons. New episodes continued airing on Fox through Sept. 21, with the show moving to the Turner network on Oct. 20.

We have a couple of brief TV acquisition stories for you today. First up, as we reported earlier this month, the BBC is developing a limited-series adaptation of the John le Carre novel The Night Manager. The espionage drama, which will star Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, revolves around a former British soldier who teams up with intelligence operatives to go undercover in order to avenge the death of a friend. Given the lead actors, the source material's author, and the premise, it's no wonder that the series ignited a bidding war. According to THR, AMC has won the U.S. distribution rights, which is good thing for the cable network considering they're hard up for quality programming now that Breaking Bad is gone and Mad Men is almost finished (Better Call Saul might be good, but it will be compared to one of TV's greatest shows right out the gate).

Jon Stewart confirms he was approached to host "Meet the Press," but he didn't take NBC's offer seriously "My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” Stewart tells Rolling Stone. "I'm sure part of them was thinking, 'Why don't we just make it a variety show?’” Stewart also says that he thinks Stephen Colbert might be even better when he takes over from Letterman. "Untethered from his character, I think he'll actually have more room and really be able to deliver in a way that's going to surprise people,” says Stewart. E! extends Joel McHale’s “The Soup” deal through 2016 McHale will continue hosting the weekly comedy show, while also coming up reality projects for the network.

Hong Kong — AMC / Sundance Channel is on the lookout for further international expansion, especially in Asia and Latin America, says president Bruce Tuchman. Acquisitions may be on the agenda.
“We’d be looking at any well-valued business that can be tucked in and take what we do to the next level,” said Tuchman Wednesday at the Casbaa convention in Hong Kong.
The company is currently on an expansionary tear. It has added a raft of carriage deals in Latin America already this year and in the past 12 months has acquired Cello Media, 49% of BBC America, and German movie channel Kinowelt TV.
Tuchman said that the company had spent a year digesting Cello, its biggest ever deal outside the U.S., and that the rebranding of its MGM Channel as AMC will now go ahead in international territories on Dec. 31.
Sundance and AMC will be the twin pillars of the group’s offering, »

"Tread lightly" is one of the most iconic phrases in Breaking Bad, and now you can see it from another angle. This clip, taken from new documentary No Half Measures, shows Bryan Cranston and Dean Norris dancing the dance in Hank's garage, after Hank has discovered Walter's true identity. Plus, showrunner Vince Gilligan also weighs in on the performances.

Since the development of the moving picture camera in the late 19th century, the world, especially Americans, have been fascinated by the silver screen. For a time, people shut out the cold reality of the Great Depression with Shirley Temple's iconic curls, and legends like Errol Flynn, Gregory Peck, and Katherine Hepburn roamed Hollywood lots and ordered Cobb salads at the Brown Derby. For awhile it seemed that our infatuation with Hollywood would never end, but the most recent decade has seen both its revenue and cultural significance decline, and many industry experts are scrambling to understand how movies have slipped from the spotlight. Internal changes show that studios have reinvested quite a bit of their resources into television production, and although Hollywood has been a television oriented town since the late-1950's, it had never stepped on film profits until fairly recently.

Given that Saul Goodman was often the comic relief in Breaking Bad, particularly as the seasons grew progressively darker, one could be forgiven for assuming that Better Call Saul will be a little lighter in tone than its predecessor. However, according to star Bob Odenkirk, the new show will be far more dramatic in content than expected, with comedy only accounting for a small part of its makeup. "It’s total drama, man," said Odenkirk to THR, before slightly softening his stance. "It’s 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy.” And...

Anyone else starting to see a pattern in these final Sons of Anarchy episodes?
Following Bobby’s unfortunate capture (and loss of an eyeball) in last week’s installment, Tuesday’s hour found Jax & Co. going through very similar motions: Trying and failing to gain the upper hand on an enemy, getting brutally violent when things don’t go according to plan and — after receiving another body part of Bobby’s in a package from Moses Cartwright — silently realizing just how deep this rabbit hole goes.
That said, this week’s episode did manage to throw a few curveballs at us, »
The final numbers are in and The CW's "The Flash" scored a 3.2 rating and 6.83 million viewers in Live+7 numbers for its series premiere earlier this month - making it the most-watched telecast in The CW's history.

Meanwhile, Malese Jow ("The Vampire Diaries") has joined the cast in a recurring role as Linda Park. The character is described as a quick-witted reporter for the Central City Picture News and who becomes a potential Barry romantic interest. She first appears in the twelfth episode.

We are only a few months away from the premiere of Better Call Saul and we still don’t know a whole lot about the new show. That could be for the best considering if it was overly hyped with a figurative "remember Breaking Bad?" banner being shoved in our faces, it could be a letdown when it turns out it's actually a show that plans to stand out on its own. Saul Goodman was arguably the best part of Breaking Bad a lot of the times as a great source of »

Syfy knows they messed up. Now they have a plan to win you back. The cable network’s top executives won’t say this in such blunt language, but they acknowledge that somewhere along the line, the network missed an opportunity to have more great scripted dramas. It happened sometime after the name change from Sci Fi Channel to Syfy and the conclusion of Battlestar Galactica—the acclaimed series that was once mentioned by critics alongside titles like Mad Men and The Sopranos as representing TV's top-tier of storytelling. Once the weary Battlestar crew decided to settle on Earth in the show’s 2009 series finale, »
