Kristen Bell Reveals What She's Learned From Working With Ted Danson on The Good Place
The Good Place, one of the best shows on television week in and week out, features an ensemble cast doing some of the best work of their careers—and that cast includes Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. When E! News spoke with Bell for a larger story on her career, from her start with Veronica Mars to The Good Place, the topic of Danson, whom Bell refers to as "my Teddy bear," naturally came up. After all, Danson, a TV legend thanks to Cheers, Damages, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bored to Death, Fargo, CSI, Becker…need we go on? Danson is a TV veteran who inspires, Bell said.

Glenn Close: ‘You lose power if you get angry’

From vengeful mistress to Agatha Christie matriarch: the actor talks about Harvey Weinstein, mental illness and growing up in a cult

Glenn Close and I sit at the corner of a large boardroom table in an intimidatingly minimalist office on the 14th floor of a Los Angeles talent agency. It’s the kind of environment in which Patty Hewes, the ruthless lawyer Close played in Damages for five seasons, would feel at home and I’m almost waiting for her to stand up, slam both hands on the table and shout, “I’ll rip your face off” or any of the other terrifying put-downs that defined her double Emmy award-winning performance.

But Close is in high spirits and radiates such warmth I barely notice the chill from the tower block’s air-con. After we fiddle with the settings on our swivel chairs, which are so high they make anyone under

Homeland season 7: first trailer arrives

Den Of Geek Dec 13, 2017

Homeland's seventh season is on the way, and we now have a gripping trailer to sink our teeth into...

Against all speculation about its fate, Homeland recaptured its previous glory during a dynamite sixth season, even offering a finale that left fans reeling. 

So what's next? Well, the good news is that, yes, Homeland season 7 is coming. In even better news, it sounds like Homeland season 8 is also a go. Last June came the first reports that the show was given a two-season renewal that is expected to conclude the series' run. That was confirmed later in the fall, with showrunner Alex Gansa doubling down on ending the series on a two-part high.

And unsurprisingly, it includes a lot of 'ripped from the headlines' political, cloak and dagger plotting.

Homeland season 7 trailer

The trailer is finally here, and the Showtime series promises a presidency gone rogue in its penultimate season.

Michael Moore Battling Harvey and Bob Weinstein Over ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ Sequel

Michael Moore Battling Harvey and Bob Weinstein Over ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ Sequel
Michael Moore is warring with Harvey and Bob Weinstein over the release of “Fahrenheit 11/9,” the Donald Trump-themed sequel to Moore’s award-winning “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the highest-grossing documentary of all time. The Weinstein brothers personally committed $6 million to Moore’s sequel, but now the future of the film is in jeopardy as TWC is for sale and both brothers face allegations of sexual harassment and abuse.

Ted Danson is Sneakily Reinventing Himself on ‘The Good Place’

Ted Danson is Sneakily Reinventing Himself on ‘The Good Place’
At the start of Chapter 18 of “The Good Place,” Ted Danson’s Michael — the architect of a human torture chamber who’s recently switched sides in an attempt to help his former captives — laments how his new bosses are running The Bad Place.

“It really tucks my nuggets,” he says. “I worked so hard on my torture ideas, and theirs are so basic. These millennials, they have no work ethic.”

When Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and Jason (Manny Jacinto), who are both around the millennial age, give him a puzzled look, he continues. “Oh sorry, a millennial is someone who has only been torturing people for a thousand years.”

But the pun-like wordplay above sparked a troubling thought. Considering the middling “Good Place” ratings and the recent history of its star…

Do real millennials not get Ted Danson?

Now, to be fair, “The Good Place” ratings aren’t bad. In fact,

Joan has dedicated years of her life to nurturing her husband’s genius, but a moment of revelation causes her to reconsider their relationship and her future. Jane Anderson (“Olive Kitteridge,” “Mad Men”) penned the script.

Directed by Bjorn Runge (“Daybreak”), the pic’s producers include Silver Reel’s Claudia Bluemhuber, Anonymous Content’s Rosalie Swedlin, Meta Film’s Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen, and Jo Bamford and Piers Tempest for Tempo Productions.

Tiff Review: ‘The Wife’ Provides Glenn Close with One of Her Finest Performances

Playing Joan, the wife of a newly-announced Nobel Prize-winning novelist Joseph (Jonathan Pryce) whose career she has supported while setting her own ambitions aside, Glenn Close gives one of her finest performances in Björn Runge’s latest feature. The actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in the affecting drama, aptly titled The Wife.

Runge’s film opens as the couple first receive news that Joseph has won the prize. They jump up and down on the bed like giddy children as he chants “I won the Nobel Prize.” As the significance sinks in and the full implications bear down, Joan abruptly stops celebrating and leaves the room. Things don’t get any better once they arrive in Sweden in preparation for Stockholm ceremony. Joan is clearly deeply annoyed by something and we can only guess what.
