We’re still waiting on the official title for Stephen Frears‘ currently-shooting Lance Armstrong biopic but we’ve news of a Hollywood icon joining the cast of the film being led by Ben Foster. Once filming has completed on location in Europe, production will move to the United States. It’s here that Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman is set to hook up with the rest of the cast and crew in the outing of the disgraced drug cheating cyclist.
Frears’ film, based on sports journalist David Walsh’s best-selling book ‘Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong’, sees the intense Foster as the seven-time Tour du France winner who was later stripped of those titles. Irish actor and star of The It Crowd, Chris O’Dowd, plays the determined Walsh. No word on Hoffman’s role but he rounds out the main cast which also includes Jesse Plemmons (Breaking Bad »

Note. This review originally appeared at Sound on Sight when the film played at this year’s Fantastic Fest. It has been updated to tie in with the film’s wider theatrical release.
One of the most shocking moments of the new documentary Narco Cultura comes near the end, as one of the musicians who profits from the most heinous and violent acts committed by Mexican drug cartels deliberately misquotes a memorable line from Brian de Palma’s Scarface: “First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the bitches.” The surprise is not that the 1983 gangster opus is name-dropped here, but that it only happens once. The hits just keep on coming in Narco Cultura, a thoroughly horrifying look at the neverending criminal battle going on south of the border.

As anybody attempting to cull a Top 10 list knows, this has been a rather spectacular year for scripted TV, both in terms of the upper echelon -- "Breaking Bad" delivered one of the best send-off seasons ever -- but also in terms of depth, as I could substitute a Top 10 list of *new* shows for my overall Top 10 and still be very happy. That means that next Thursday (December 12) morning's Golden Globes nomination announcement will be especially unpredictable, given the Hollywood Foreign Press' penchant for shiny and new things. Many of the big questions surround »

Like a Dostoevsky in the desert, this great series charts a decent, slightly pathetic man's tragic descent into moral depravity
When I reviewed the first series of Breaking Bad for this slot back in 2010, the show was almost unheard of: a little tale of a high-school chemistry teacher in a dusty corner of America, toiling away in a life of quiet desperation, only to be told he's dying of cancer. So he teams up with a wayward former pupil, Jesse, to make and sell crystal meth, to earn big bucks fast and thereby provide security for his family after his demise. At the time, it felt like a poignant Chekhovian story about a decent, if slightly pathetic man trying to shore up a failed life. The only reason I bothered watching it at all it was because I'd studied chemistry at university.
How wrong I was. This wasn't suburban Chekhov. »

We love any excuse to talk about Breaking Bad, even though the show is long gone. Thankfully, critics and fans adore this show, so as award season rolls on, we'll be seeing Breaking Bad listed many times for months and months to come. And the nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards are no different. Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black and Modern Family dominated the noms that were released today, in both the series categories and the episodic categories. Netflix made a very strong showing, as House of Cards got plenty of love, too. TV Scoop team favorite Parks and Recreation also got nods in different categories, meaning we haven't lost all hope in humanity quite yet. Check out the full list »
The WGA Awards‘ TV nominations this morning provided a stark contrast to the PGA Award nominations on Tuesday, proving again how out of date the PGA Awards are on the TV side with their June-May eligibility window. The WGA Awards, on the other hand, are keeping things as current as possible, recognizing series that have aired between December 1, 2012-November 30, 2013. That’s why its list of nominees includes the three most well-received new shows of the past six months: Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black and Showtime’s Ray Donovan and Masters Of Sex. Orange Is The New Black was the most nominated series with 4 noms, tied with this year’s best drama series winner Breaking Bad — for best comedy series, best new series and best episodic comedy (for the pilot). Masters Of Sex and Ray Donovan also landed new series noms, with Masters Of Sex additionally recognized for its pilot. »

Breaking Bad and Netflix Shows: The 2014 WGA Nominees Announced »
- Remy Carreiro
Netflix's critical hit "Orange Is the New Black" picked up four nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards -- where it's entered as a comedy series.
The show (and its cast) is entered in the drama field for some other upcoming awards shows, including the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It's a bit of a tweener show, mixing both comedy and drama, but as there are no "dramedy" awards anywhere, it's a comedy for writing purposes.
The full list of series nominees is below. You can go here to see all the WGA TV and radio nominees, including those for news and children's programming. The awards are scheduled for Feb. 1.

This was, as I've written about several times — and will be writing a lot more in the coming weeks as we publish various Best of 2013 lists — an insanely good, and deep, year for scripted television. "Breaking Bad" went out with an amazing final season. Netflix entered the original scripted series game. So did Sundance, and History, and others. There's so much good TV right now that any kind of Top 10 list, or set of awards nominations — like today's announcement of the Writers Guild of America TV nominees for 2013 — will inevitably omit an awful lot »
