House of Cards Boss Beau Willimon Responds to My Biggest (and Pretty Much Only) Gripe About Season 3

26 March 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following story contains spoilers about Season 3 of House of Cards. Proceed at your own risk.

I know House of Cards‘ third season left some fans feeling as cold as Claire Underwood’s average body temperature, but I, alas, was not one of them.

With the exception of the tedious, suspense-deprived, Doug-centric premiere, I found Season 3’s obsession with foreign affairs, gay rights and campaign dramaturgy to be endlessly watchable. I welcomed all of the new blood, particularly Boardwalk Empire vet Paul Sparks as Frank’s quasi-biographer/man crush Thomas Yates, with open arms. And I was particularly engrossed »

Run the Jewels’ New Video Beautifully Exposes the ‘Futility’ of Police Brutality

26 March 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Few in hip-hop have been more vocal about police injustice than Run the Jewels. Killer Mike spent the tail-end of 2014 and into 2015 speaking out against crimes against humanity in the wake of the murders of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. That rage and emotional exhaustion over a seemingly winless battle became the centerpiece of their sophomore album, released last year, and it also frames the video for the tempestuous "Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck)," featuring Zack de la Rocha. Selma's Keith Stanfield and Boardwalk Empire's Shea Whigham star as a young black man and a cop engaged in a gritty, at times dancelike physical fight that punches a lot deeper than their jaws. What results of their war is a moving commentary on what Mike perfectly sums up as "the futile and exhausting existence of a purgatory-like law enforcement system." »

'Independence Day 2' Targets 'Boardwalk Empire' Actor

25 March 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after we reported that Independence Day star Vivica A. Fox will return for Independence Day 2, Boardwalk Empire actor Travis Tope is in negotiations to join the cast. The actor will play a character named Charlie, although no further details were given. Independence Day star Will Smith is not returning, although Bill Pullman (Thomas Whitmore) and Jeff Goldblum (David Levinson) are reprising their roles from the original, alongside Vivica A. Fox.

The new cast members coming on board for the sequel include Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher and Charlotte Gainsbourg. When Jessie Usher was originally cast, it was revealed that he is playing the son of Will Smith's Stephen Hiller. However, The Wrap reports that he is actually playing Jasmine Dubrow's son Dylan, originally played by Ross Bagley in Independence Day. In the original movie, Hiller was dating Dubrow, but he was not the father of Dylan. »

Liam Neeson signs up for another action thriller

24 March 2015 11:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Run All Night didn't hit, Taken 3 did. So Liam Neeson is trying another action thriller: this time, it's Narco Sub...

Liam Neeson's latest action flick, Run All Night, may have struggled at the box office, but earlier this year, Taken 3 proved that he still has pulling power. Never mind the fact that Taken 3 is a film best forgotten about. Quickly.

Neeson has now added another action film to his slate though, a submarine flick by the name of Narco Sub. This was a film that the late Tony Scott was once going to direct (Ridley Scott is one of the producers, alongside Simon Kinberg), and it's also a project that both Doug Liman and Antoine Fuqua came close to making.

Based on a screenplay by Safe House's David Guggenheim, Narco Sub tells of a disgraced naval officer who finds himself forced by an Ecuadorian drug »

HBO TV Show Ratings (updated 3/24/15)

24 March 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.

Scripted HBO shows listed: Boardwalk Empire, The Comeback, Eastbound & Down, Game of Thrones, Getting On, Girls, Hello Ladies, Jonah from Tonga, The Leftovers, Looking, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, Togetherness, True Blood, True Detective, and Veep.

Last update: Most recent ratings for Girls and Looking added.

There's lots of data that HBO execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series. The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current primetime scripted shows. »

Steve Buscemi's Favorite Adam Sandler Movie

24 March 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You may not automatically think of Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler at the same time. The two have very different careers. Buscemi is known for roles like gangster Nucky Thompson on HBO.s Boardwalk Empire or Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs, while Sandler is most widely recognized for his sophomoric humor. Still, the two friends have teamed up many times and have made eleven movies together over the years, and if you.ve ever wondered which of these is his favorite, Buscemi recently revealed his answer. (Hint: it.s one of ours, too). Over the weekend, the Fargo star participated in an Ama session on Reddit, and when one fan asked which of his Adam Sandler team ups tops his list, Buscemi said: Well, I'm very partial to Billy Madison, because that was one of the first films that Adam did on his own, as part of his production company. »

Jack Huston Is ‘The Crow’

24 March 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The reboot of The Crow just got a major shot in the arm, with the news that Jack Huston is to squeeze into the leathers left by departing star Luke Evans.

Evans quit following numerous production delays, but the signing of Huston should get the show back on the road. He’s perhaps best known for his role as scarred veteran and expert sharp shooter Richard Harrow in Boardwalk Empire, but has several high profile projects coming up. These include following in the footsteps of Charlton Heston as Ben-hur.

Based on James O’Barr’s comic book, the original franchise saw tortured rock star Eric Draven brought back from the grave to take revenge on the brutal gang who murdered him and his lover. Star Brandon Lee infamously died in an accident during the shoot for the first movie, and his place was taken in subsequent instalments by Vincent Perez, »

Here Are the Best Answers From Steve Buscemi’s Reddit Ama

23 March 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Steve Buscemi stepped out of his comfort zone Monday night to take part in a Reddit Ama. The Q&A session was held on behalf of a documentary he's crowd-funding and co-producing called Check It, about a gay and transgender gang fighting to survive in Washington, D.C., via fashion. Buscemi answered questions about the film; shared Adam Sandler, John Goodman, and David Chase anecdotes; and addressed his character's fate in Boardwalk Empire. Thanks to all the chuckles and ums and ellipses, the typed-out answers sound fresh out of the actor's mouth. Read some of the highlights below. Did he know what was going to happen to his character in The Sopranos beforehand? Well, I signed up for 2 seasons, so I fully expected to come back for another season - and towards, you know, towards the end of that season, it was season 5, I got a message on my phone »

Liam Neeson May Captain Narco Sub

23 March 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Narco Sub is one of those projects that just floats in the depths of development for years while filmmakers come and go. Originally targeted for Tony Scott, it now appears to be surfacing with Game Of Thrones veteran Brian Kirk directing and Liam Neeson wanted for the lead. The thriller, which has a script by David Guggenheim, finds a disgraced American naval officer (Neeson, if he signs) forced to pilot a submarine loaded with cocaine past the Us Coast Guard’s watchful eye. And given what happened the last time Neeson was aboard a cinematic sub in K-19: The Widowmaker, does anyone expect this mission to go well?Kirk, whose only film-directing gig so far was indie drama Middletown, nevertheless has plenty of TV experience in addition to Thrones. He’s worked on the likes of Dexter, Great Expectations, Luther, and Boardwalk Empire. He’s taking over a project that, »
