HBO may not have had the Emmy night it wanted on Monday, but the network is still the high watermark for television. Would “Breaking Bad” have won if “The Sopranos” had never aired and changed the game for what cable dramas could be? While you mull over the implications of David Chase’s landmark TV show never having existed, why not refresh your memory on what exactly went down last season on another mobster show, “Boardwalk Empire”? Running seven minutes, the Terence Winter-hosted video recaps the fourth season of the period drama, tracking everything from Nucky and Chalky’s partnership to the introduction of Jeffrey Wright’s Valentin Narcisse, all the way to the shocking deaths of —you know. The show's ensemble is still strong, and though it may not be as flashy or buzzworthy as HBO’s other signature shows —“Game of Thrones” and “True Detective”— “Boardwalk Empire” is still a solid workhorse. »

Marvel has made no secret of the work that is going into this movie, although the list of stars affiliated with this role seems to be endlessly extending. Joaquin Phoenix was recently associated with the character, although Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy have also been linked to the role.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has given many great references hinting at future films and plot developments. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier a reference to a potentially dangerous Stephen Strange was made, clearly tempting audiences with the idea of a movie adaptation being in the works.
Jack Huston is a relative unknown given the high profile rumours touted around with regards to Marvel’s majestic Sorcerer. However, »
- Samuel Clements
While the up-and-coming actor’s reps refused to comment, the site claims that its sources “confirm that Jack Huston is under consideration to take the Doctor Strange lead and is definitely in the running.”
If true, Huston is now one of many in contention for the role. Over the last few months, several names have been added to the mix, including Benedict Cumberbatch (who has denied involvement), Tom Hardy, Johnny Depp, Jared Leto, Deliver Us From Evil‘s Edgar Ramirez, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jon Hamm, who This Is Infamous actually claimed had been cast with their last Doctor Strange scoop.

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.
As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).
The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

We’re in that fuzzy, transitional period where a film edges from vapourware status to reality in the evolution of Marvel’s Doctor Strange. With Scott Derrickson confirmed to direct, the casting rumours for the title character have been flying thick and fast, with fingers pointed at various known quantities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto and, during Comic-Con, Joaquin Phoenix, who was reportedly in early talks. The latest name to add to the list? Jack Huston.While he may not be as well known as some of those above, Huston’s hardly a newcomer. He’s been paying his dues for several years on screens both big and small, appearing in Boardwalk Empire, Factory Girl, Kill Your Darlings and last year’s American Hustle. He’ll next be seen in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride and recently won the role of Mr. Wickham in Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. »
America’s version of the TV BAFTA’s, The Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night. The cream of the televisual crop were out in force to celebrate the occasion. Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.
Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock. See below for the winners list in full and we’ve also put in the moving tribute from Billy Crystal for his friend, »

With his Emmy victory Monday night, Aaron Paul is now the first person to ever win three times as Best Drama Supporting Actor. His previous two wins were in 2010 and 2012. -Break- Paul has only lost twice before for "Breaking Bad." Michael Emerson ("Lost") defeated him in 2009. He was not eligible in 2011 but suffered another loss in 2013 to Bobby Cannavale ("Boardwalk Empire"). On the AMC drama, he played Jesse Pinkman, a young drug dealer and meth manufacturer working for his former science teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston). He submitted the episode "Confessions" to the Emmy judging panel. In this show, he is warned to leave town and completely disappear.

This Is Infamous reports that "Boardwalk Empire" and "American Hustle" star Huston is the latest candidate, and the actor is "definitely in the running" but doesn't mention if previous actors linked to the project are also still in the running including Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy and Joaquin Phoenix.
31-year-old Huston has been rumored for several Marvel roles before - he was up for Doctor Doom in the "Fantastic Four" reboot, and was a finalist for the Star-Lord role in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy". He's well regard by his peers, but isn't a box-office name which would make sense for a part that requires a multiple film commitment.
How reliable is the rumor? On the one hand Huston is on many people's castings lists for »

Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston was one of the actors up for the role of Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy before Chris Pratt landed it. But, according to the site This Is Infamous, Huston is now in the running for Doctor Strange.
According to the site, "out of all the properties that have been incorporated into Marvel’s big screen model, Doctor Strange is Feige’s baby, and he is handling this project with care to make sure it is about as close to perfect as possible. As a result, him and director Scott Derrickson have been kicking over a lot of rocks, seeing what they may turn up as they look for the ideal candidate."
They go on to say that the studio is very close to choosing their leading man, and Huston is definitely a great actor to throw in the pool of other actors that have included Jared Leto, »

It started as a novel by Dennis Lehane and became an overheated tale of menace on the big screen starring Leonardo DiCaprio. HBO clearly couldn’t get enough of the concept as they are bringing Shutter Island to the small screen in the shape of a TV prequel called Ashecliffe. And to show they’re not messing around Lehane has been hired to write the pilot with none other than the movie’s director Martin Scorsese returning to line the lens.
The original plot saw a Us Marshal investigate a remote facility for the criminally insane, in the process losing some of his own marbles as reality and fantasy became blurred. It made an entertaining if heavy-going film but how will the concept translate to a multi-episode format? Lehane hopefully has some aces up his sleeve by way of an origin story and an increasingly TV-friendly Scorsese should deliver on the visual front. »

A number of movies are being brought to the television in various forms (including Narc and The Truman Show), and Fargo is a recent example that these small screen adaptations do work.
It has been revealed today that the next to get the TV treatment is Shutter Island, the 2010 movie which was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, and Mark Ruffalo.
HBO (the Us cable network behind show like Game of Thrones and True Detective) have picked up the series which is set to be called Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place.
Ashecliffe takes place before Shutter Island, and that’s all we know about the series as of right now!
- Josh Wilding
Martin Scorsese’s 2010 hit Shutter Island will be adapted into a TV series for HBO entitled Ashecliffe, named for the mental institution in Scorsese’s film and Dennis Lehane’s novel. Deadline reports that Scorsese and Lehane are attached to produce a pilot for the show beginning next year and that Scorsese will remain on as the show’s executive producer. Collider also adds that the film’s star Leonardo DiCaprio will also be attached as an executive producer through his company Appian Way.
According to Deadline, the show will be something of a prequel, focusing on the development and the secrets surrounding the Ashecliffe facility and the methods for treatment used there.
This news comes just as Scorsese-produced Boardwalk Empire enters its final season this September. It also accompanies a previously reported ’70s rock ‘n’ roll show Scorsese is working on with Terence Winter. Perhaps more interesting is that »
