Ever wondered what it feels like to be famous? Well, according to Bryan Cranston, it feels like you’re pregnant. The Breaking Bad alum, 59, compared being famous to being with child in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Being [famous] is almost like being a pregnant woman. People think they can just put their hand on your belly and tell you, ‘Oh, you're going to have a boy!’ It's like having a complete stranger fondling you,” the Trumbo star explained. “And they have this sensibility where they [...] »

The first photo has been released of "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston in full make-up in the role of President Lyndon B. Johnson in HBO's telemovie adaptation of the acclaimed Broadway play "All the Way". It is currently slated to premiere sometime next year.
Cranston, who won a Tony for his performance in the role, stars in the Jay Roach-directed film which begins just after JFK's assassination and follows his almost year long journey to pass the 1964 Civil Rights Act and his own presidential campaign which saw him actually elected to the office.

These days, it's nearly impossible to predict whether a TV spinoff series will be a failure or a success. For every one that flops (like "Joey"), one becomes an enormous success (like "Frasier"). This year, AMC tried its luck spinning off "Better Call Saul" from parent series "Breaking Bad" and wound up with seven Emmy nominations, including Best Drama Series (make your predictions in that race below). -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions With that in mind, we're curious to know what other Emmy-winning dramas or comedies have the potential to spinoff a successful new show?

Samuel Brace on bad movies on bad content…
There has to be consequences for making a bad movie. There just has to. Consequences for bad movies, bad TV shows, bad video games, whatever. If a studio produces a movie, a bad one, one that is below a certain standard, a standard that we are not entitled to but that we should expect, it’s imperative that we as a consumer provide the people behind the product with real repercussions.
Now, I’ve recently become quite proud of everyone, of movie goes the world over. We as a collective consumer decided that Fantastic Four was a bad movie and that we didn’t want it. No matter why the film turned out the way it did, if it was the directors fault, the studios, or both, we decided that ‘No’ would be our response. This was good, this is what needed to happen. »

“There is one final capstone to place on this monument of dishonesty.”
‘Catfish, Haunted House’ is relatively low-key for an episode of Review. It’s not because Forrest somehow has a normal set of experiences. In fact, he loses his life’s savings, perpetrates fraud on his ex wife, and is stabbed and knocked down the stairs by the matriarch of the Chinese family who purchased his and Suzanne’s old home. The mild tone comes from something much more sinister: Forrest is getting used to this. In retrospect this monstrous acclimation has been coming since ‘Pancakes, Divorce, Pancakes,” a day when Forrest’s life was both arrested and blown wide open by the twin horrors of grief and soul-crushing apathy. “These pancakes couldn’t kill me,” Forrest dully narrated, “because I was already dead.”
Sooner or later everything had to start looking like pancakes to Forrest, a man so »

Jason George took the stage at a crowded Montage Beverly Hills patio area Thursday evening to mark the celebration of diversity in the 67th Annual Emmy Award nominations. The patio was filled with attendees involved in showbiz — most of whom are considered a minority of some kind.
The third Dynamic & Diverse event from the TV Academy brought people from the industry old and new to celebrate the occasion. “Grey’s Anatomy” regular George, chair of SAG-aftra’s Diversity Advisory Committee, made a speech that touched on the “Empire” effect — or as he likes to call it, the “Shonda Rhimes” effect — that snowballed into the 2015-16 season having the most diverse television content in years.
“Diversity is good business,” he started. It was a statement that he had made last year before series “Black-ish” and “Fresh Off the Boat” premiered. He continued, “I don’t know if we can do ‘All in the Family »

Recently the Discovery channel released a preview of the next episode Mythbusters. Adam and Jamie and Breaking Bad genius creator Vince Gilligan attempt to test the crazy stuff that Walter White pulled off in the finale. Here’s the thing though. Do you think it’s possible to even make the trunk gun that good ol’ Walter made? Given the time he had to not only think of it but to construct it? Is this even possible? Also how in the world are you able to trap a group of violent neo-Nazis like that? Seems a little nuts don’t you think? But Adam is going to test it. What we don’t know is if he can survive the next episode. One thing’s for certain. He’ll be wearing a brown hat. So make sure you tune into the Discovery Channel to find out if Walter White was »

Bryan Cranston is slowly but surely achieving pop culture domination. After God knows how many Emmys (four) for his performance in AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” plus a Tony Award for playing Lbj in “All the Way,” it now seems Cranston will be going, well, all the way in his bid for hardest working actor in the biz. “Trumbo,” directed by Jay Roach with a script by John McNamara, is based on the life of 1940s Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whose career hit a roadblock when he was blacklisted for being a suspected Communist. His fight against the U.S. government and studio heads for freedom of speech implicated John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and countless others. Joining Cranston in the title role is Diane Lane as his wife, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, and John Goodman. Helen Mirren gives what looks to be a juicy supporting performance as Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. »
Edinburgh — U.K. TV needs to wise up about diversity or it will be “knocked off its perch as a world leader,” according to former Paralympian Chris Holmes.
Speaking at the Edinburgh Television Festival, Holmes called on execs attending the gabfest, which wraps on Friday, to end the “culture of clone recruitment.” Diversity — or rather the lack of it in both British and American TV — has been a recurring theme at the festival.
Television must end “the revolving door of appointments of people who look the same, think the same and went to the same schools and universities,” said Holmes as he launched new guidance to help foster greater diversity in British TV.
He described the issue “as a stubborn stain on the industry’s reputation” and said that “until progress is actually delivered, the perception that TV is still dominated by a ‘luvvie’ mafia dominated by white, middle-class men will remain. »
