MTV Movie Awards Down Double Digits In Viewers & Demo From 2013

3 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

About 2.8 million people tuned in to Sunday’s Conan O’Brien-hosted MTV Movie Awards, a million fewer viewers (-27%) than last year’s show. The 2013 trophy show clocked 3.8 million total viewers — up compared to previous year’s 3.2 million even though big winner Jennifer Lawrence didn’t show up, and Parks And Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza got thrown out. Those who watched Sunday’s fan-voted awards saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire cop movie of the year, Mila Kunis hide her baby bump, Zac Efron lose his shirt and Mark Wahlberg score the MTV Generation Award — or, as he called it, the You’re Too Old To Come Back Award — and Eminem and Rihanna doing the TV debut of their hit “The Monster.” Related: Oscar, Schmoscar: MTV Votes ‘Catching Fire’ Best Movie Sunday’s show also was down by double digits in the network’s core 12-34 demographic, pulling a 2.6 compared »

Tatiana Maslany Talks Orphan Black, Getting Through Season 2 on Adrenaline, Developing the Different Clones and Their Backstory, and More

5 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Season 2 of the BBC America dramatic conspiracy thriller Orphan Black sees Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) in a desperate race to find her missing daughter.  The wild pursuit brings her head-to-head with ruthless clone Rachel (Maslany), and Sarah, along with her clone sisters Alison (Maslany) and Cosima (Maslany), struggle to pick up the pieces of their broken lives while dealing with the harsh reality that no one around them can be trusted. During this interview to promote the return of the show, the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany, who expertly pulls off playing every clone, talked about running on adrenaline to get through the season, developing the different clones, doing a backstory for each clone, how she gets into each character, the process for shooting more than one clone in the same scene, how this project has changed her, what it’s like to be in the public eye, mastering all of the different accents, »

Whoa, Paul Rudd Went and Got Buff

8 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Looking like he's ready to play a superhero a bit more built than Ant Man (Ant Man is small, right?), Paul Rudd was caught on-camera tossing around a football on the beach — and he is more Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy than Chris Pratt on Parks and Recreation. Maybe those two old ladies on Billy on the Street who claimed they didn't want to have sex with Paul Rudd will change their minds after this. »

11 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the course of her acting career, Jenny Slate has stood out in numerous supporting roles, appearing in shows such as Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, Kroll Show, and Bored To Death. Many fans of the performer were interested to see when she’d make the transition to a leading role, something that she is poised to do in her next project. Titled Obvious Child, the film is written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, and was previously highlighted by us in our Kickstarter column. Slate stars in the film alongside Gaby Hoffmann, Richard Kind, David Cross, and Jake Lacy. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

You're About to Become Jenny Slate's Biggest Fan

11 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you like the humor of Girls and have a soft spot for Jean-Ralphio's sister on Parks and Recreation, then let me introduce you to the trailer for Obvious Child. It stars Jenny Slate, who you may recognize not just from Parks, but possibly Saturday Night Live (or as the very adorable voice in the viral video "Marcel the Shell With the Shoes On") - she plays Donna, a recently dumped comedian who rebounds with a sweet guy (Jake Lacy) and ends up with a little more than she bargained for. Slate and Lacy's chemistry is so cute, but the rest of this romantic comedy isn't as conventional as it sounds; the humor is biting, and the situation gets very real and loses its sugar coating. I can't wait to see Slate in a starring role like this and hope this is her big breakout moment. Obvious Child comes out »

Watch: Jenny Slate Shines in Winning Trailer for Sundance Hit 'Obvious Child'

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you aren't already familiar with Jenny Slate from her stint on "Saturday Night Live," you probably know her as the voice behind the title character in "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On," the stop-motion short she made with her husband Dean Fleischer-Camp that became a viral smash and screened at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. She also appeared on TV in "Parks and Recreation" and "Girls." In Gillian Robespierre's hit Sundance comedy "Obvious Child," Slate proves she can carry a project solo. Playing a Brooklyn comedian who refuses to grow up (think "Frances Ha" with bigger laughs), Slate shines in the A24 comedy that opens in select theaters on June 6. We have the first trailer. Here's the official synopsis: For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her incredibly relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics »

Extended TV spot for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the MTV Movie Awards, Marvel Studios debuted an extended TV spot for the upcoming space epic Guardians of the Galaxy; sadly, it doesn’t contain any new footage from the eagerly-anticipated film, but if you’d like to check it out anyway you can do so below courtesy of Cbm…

“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

Tribeca Film Festival: Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield bond in dark comedy 'About Alex'

14 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Aubrey Plaza was terror-stricken when she arrived at the abandoned Catskills ski lodge that served as the set of her indie film About Alex — so much so that she became closer to her castmates than originally expected.

“I forced Jane to move in with me because I was terrified I would get murdered by some mountain person,” confesses Plaza, one of the lead characters in the film about a group of old college friends who reunite over a long weekend to bond after one of their pals attempts suicide. “I felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and it was totally creepy. »

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany on what she can do even better in season 2

14 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Tatiana Maslany reported to duty for season 1 of Orphan Black, she didn’t know if anyone would even take notice. After all, it was a new show from Canada airing on a channel (BBC America) that had only recently jumped into the original programming game. She could only guess what the reaction would be as she filmed that first season. That was certainly not the case when the cast and crew reunited for filming on season 2 (which premieres April 19). Rapturous reviews and a devoted #CloneClub let them know that there was indeed an audience following their every move. So »

The Cure for Pop Culture Exhaustion

12 April 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Burned out by the incessant opinions, snark, and sniping? Drop out of the conversation and binge on something in a vacuum.

While the rest of the world has been busy gnashing its teeth over the How I Met Your Mother finale, mourning the sudden death of Will Gardner, and snickering over Gwyneth Paltrow’s “conscious uncoupling,” I’ve devoted the past week to watching the first four seasons of Parks and Recreation. Many would call this a binge – or a cry for help – but I prefer to think of it as a detox. There’s so much hashtagging and around-the-clock quarterbacking in pop culture today. »

New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Production Images Tease Marvel’s Space Adventure

11 April 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

This summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy is being pitched to the paying public as Marvel Studios’ most self-aware goofy feature to date, with Parks and Recreation‘s Chris Pratt headlining a film written and directed by James Gunn – creator of the horror/comedy Slither and Super (a.k.a. Kick-Ass‘s weird indie cousin) – where the characters include a talking raccoon with the voice of Bradley Cooper, former Doctor Who companion Amelia Pond (Karen Gillan) as an bald-headed blue alien, and Oscar-nominees Glenn Close and John C. Reilly as space cops, among other peculiar entities.

Gunn’s movie is also a key installment in Phase 2 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, as Guardians will be responsible ...

Exclusive Video Interview With Nick Frost And Rashida Jones On Cuban Fury

11 April 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though you may not know Rashida Jones and Nick Frost by name, you’re likely familiar with their faces. Jones has proven herself to be quite a comedic actress on television, with shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation, and has also made a splash on the big screen, starring in films such as I Love You, Man, The Social Network and The Muppets. Frost, on the other hand, while quite popular in the UK, is starting to earn some much deserved recognition stateside thanks to his collaborations with buddies Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End).

This week, the two talents are coming together for Cuban Fury, a film that Frost initially pitched to producers while drunk. It sees the beloved British actor playing Bruce Garrett, a 38-year-old man “trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity.” When he meets his new boss Julia, »

'Parks and Recreation': Exec producer Michael Schur on last night's big twist for Leslie and Ben

11 April 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

[Spoiler Alert: Do not read this story until you've watched Thursday night's episode of Parks and Recreation, "Flu Season 2."]

Oh, baby — did Parks and Recreation just throw another curve into the Leslie Knope: Rise to Glory story. NBC’s small-town comedy has never been afraid to switch up the game plan for our pathologically peppy protagonist (see: running for City Council, being recalled from City Council), and the show did it again Thursday night with “Flu Season 2″, giving her a special delivery of good news while she’s in the throes of a career dilemma (take a job running a National Parks Service branch… in Chicago?) and a job crisis (can she and Andy persuade Scott Tanner to reform »

'Parks and Recreation' react: What do you think of Leslie's [Spoiler] news? -- Poll

10 April 2014 6:12 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

[Spoiler Alert: Do not read this story until you've watched tonight's episode of Parks and Recreation, "Flu Season 2."]

Leslie Knope has done it all — get Pawnee’s parks in ship shape, get a job on the City Council, get recalled, get two hours of waffles, and get married. Perhaps the only thing she hasn’t done is get pregnant. But that all changed Thursday night with “Flu Season 2,” a rather delightful episode of Parks and Recreation that revealed early on that Leslie was vomiting not from a virus, but because she is with child — and ended with her breaking the big news to Ben. This twist comes at an unexpected if inconvenient time, as she is weighing whether »

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'Flu Season 2'

10 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Parks and Recreation" coming up just as soon as my dog's Jewish... How interesting that two of the last three episodes have had names pegging them as sequels to past episodes. It's not that it can't be done in sitcoms — "The Office" did a Christmas variant each year, and Mike Schur's beloved "Cheers" did a whole bunch of "Bar Wars" episodes — but that it can set the bar incredibly high. The original "Galentine's Day," while probably not in many fan's top 10 episodes lists, is still awfully good, and if the first "Flu Season" isn't at the top of everyone's list, it's going to be awfully close. It's the single funniest episode the show's ever done, with the single funniest line, arguably Chris Pratt's funniest improv, and Amy Poehler's funniest performance in the run of the show. When you call an episode "Flu Season »

So, who should replace Stephen Colbert?

10 April 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Caveat: There’s no guarantee that Comedy Central will program another topical nightly talk show in The Colbert Report’s place when Stephen Colbert leaves to take over CBS’s Late Show in 2015.

After all, Colbert isn’t just another late night gabfest — it’s a parody of a very specific type of news program, starring a character who’s a very specific caricature of folks like Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. (Limbaugh, naturally, has already spoken out against Colbert’s move to CBS, saying that the network has “declared war on the heartland of America.”) It would be »
