'New Girl' creator on Megan Fox: 'She's funny in a cool way'

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A couple of weeks ago, I noted that New Girl had evolved into such an ensemble comedy that it would be just fine during Zooey Deschanel's six-episode maternity leave. So far, we've had two episodes — both of them, like the last few with Deschanel, filmed immediately after production on last season wrapped, so the show could get them done before they lost the star for a while — just featuring the remaining castmembers (plus guests like Fred Armisen, Bill Burr, and Lennon Parham), but the remainder of Deschanel's absence will revolve around the introduction of a temporary addition to the loft: Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales rep played by Megan Fox. Fox has some comedy on her resume, so it's not a complete surprise that she works out quite well in the two episodes I've seen with her. But it's a significant change in the show's usual dynamics, since Reagan is »

Patton Oswalt to Host Writers Guild Awards

4 February 2016 1:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patton Oswalt has been selected to host the Writers Guild Awards West Coast ceremony on Feb. 13 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

Hugh Fink returns as executive producer of this year’s show.

“Even though I am unable to read or write, the fact that the Wgaw wants me to host their awards show proves to me that the only thing bigger than the Guild’s scotch budget…is the size of their hearts,” said Oswalt.

Fink said, “I am truly honored to have Patton Oswalt hosting the 2016 Writers Guild Awards. This fulfills a lifelong dream Patton and I have shared since our early days as standup comedians: to work together in a Hyatt Regency ballroom immediately following the Shapiro Bat Mitzvah.”

Patton and co-writers Gerry Duggan, Wayne Federman and Erik Weiner received a Writers Guild Award nomination last year for co-writing the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards show, »

Aubrey Plaza and Dan Stevens Join FX’s Mysterious, X-Men-Adjacent Legion

4 February 2016 12:49 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Marvel's building a little kingdom for itself on Netflix, with its ever-expanding network of New York–based superhero shows, but it seems we'll finally see a few other of its superheroes, or something superhero-adjacent, on old-fashioned TV. Today, FX announced that Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), and Jean Smart (Fargo), have joined the cast of Legion, the first of two X-Men shows Fox has in development. Legion follows the schizophrenic David Haller (Stevens), who, in Marvel's comics, is the super-powered son of Professor X, though FX's release is stripped of any direct mention of Haller's parentage or the X-Men. Plaza will play Haller's friend Lenny, an optimist who,"despite a life of drugs and alcohol abuse, knows that any day now her life is gonna turn around," while Smart will play a therapist with "unconventional" methods. Per FX's description, "David is a haunted man, trying to »

4 February 2016 11:55 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Dan Stevens is getting ready to return to TV in a role that will find him hated and feared. That's an X-Men reference. The Downton Abbey veteran has signed on to star in FX's Legion pilot, based on the character from Marvel's X-Men comic books. Parks and Recreation's Aubrey Plaza and Fargo veterans Jean Smart and Rachel Keller join the Stevens in the project from Fargo's TV mastermind Noah Hawley. In Legion, Stevens will play David, a diagnosed schizophrenic who is described as a "haunted man" and is in the process of "trying to find his way back to sanity." He's about to give up until he meets the girl of his dreams. Plaza plays Lenny, David's pal, who has a past with »

‘Downton Abbey’ alumni to star in latest X-Men spin-off ’Legion’ on FX

4 February 2016 11:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We are Legion. The complex X-Men character is headed to FX to star in his own show. The son of Professor Charles Xavier and British ambassador to Israel Gabrielle Haller, Legion — birth name David Charles Haller — is an interesting mutant. When your father is one of the most powerful telepaths in the world, you can expect to inherit some of that. But without a mentor, things can quickly get out of hand. First reported by The Hollywood Reporter FX has found their Legion in Dan Stevens. Fans of the costume drama Downton Abbey will recognize the actor as the late Matthew Crawley. Casting Stevens implies Legion will focus on the character’s adult life, either glossing over his tumultuous teen years or utilize flashbacks. Diagnosed as schizophrenic at a young age, David is a haunted man, trying to find his way back to sanity, but he's getting tired and is »

Network Pilot Season In a Frenzy Thanks to Cable and Digital Dealmaking

3 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Not so long ago, January was literally full of drama.

Network TV development execs typically spent the December holidays reading 60-plus scripts for prospective drama series. The following month would be dedicated to debating and strategizing on the best dozen or so to order to pilot. And then, as Groundhog Day approached, they’d do it all over again with comedies.

This year, the broadcast networks were nearly done handing out all of their pilot orders before January wrapped. They have no choice: The chase for top talent and material is now so fierce that the pilot-season timetable might as well be measured in warp factors. No one can afford to dawdle: The traditional broadcast development cycle has to barrel into a marketplace already humming year-round with deal-making for cable and digital shows.

“All the networks are just trying to get out in front of each other — basically, everyone is racing, »

Official Ghostbusters Site Relaunches

3 February 2016 9:56 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's no denying that we live in the age of nostalgia films. Now more than ever, Hollywood is tapping into our collective pasts and exploiting them for all they're worth. This can bring amazing films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Creed, or not-so-amazing films like Jem And The Holograms (that's right, I went there). While often times in today's day, this results in yet another comic book movie hitting theaters, in this particular case, we have a reboot of one of the most beloved comedies of the 1980s: Ghostbusters.

Of course, you don't need me to tell you that reaction to this reboot has been a mixed bag. Some are content to wait to see what the film has in store, while others are quick to write it off for a number of reasons, be it that it's female-led, or that they just don't want their beloved Ghostbusters to be tainted. »

Chris Pratt Loves Awesome Mix Vol. 2 (I Guess)

3 February 2016 5:43 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Chris Pratt is an American treasure if I do say so myself. The guy first made a splash in such a big pond by playing Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks And Rec, and then got the Marvel bug which caused him to play Peter Quill aka "Star-Lord" in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now, to show just how appreciative he is of all the success he's been having lately, Pratt posted on Instagram a first look at 'Awesome Mix Vol. 2' along with a ramble about how the pen is mightier than the sword and hyperbole or something.

Anyways, it's just another example of how cool Pratt is, how awesome it is that he's working with Marvel to pump out well made films, and that production for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 has really kicked into overdrive (I almost forgot to mention that).

While all 10 Season 1 episodes of TBS’ new comedy series Angie Tribeca were first released in a binge marathon on the network last month (and can still be binged now on TBS’ website), some viewers enjoy TV’s more traditional schedule, which is why TBS began airing episodes of the show’s first season weekly last Monday.

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises

30 January 2016 7:16 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For most of the 22nd Annual SAG Awards, things went as expected, as when a luminous Viola Davis took home her second SAG Award in a year for “How To Get Away with Murder” and film frontrunners Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson landed top honors for “The Revenant” and “Room,” respectively. But the voters kept things interesting, with a  few notable curveballs — primarily in the TV categories.

Surprise: “Spotlight” Wins Ensemble

“No way,” Mark Ruffalo said while accepting for the cast of Tom McCarthy’s acclaimed movie. And while not a total shock — the top prize was clearly between “Spotlight” and “The Big Short” — the buzz on the latter has been deafening for the last few weeks, particularly after winning the PGA Award. Both feature large ensembles filled with a great mix of established actors and new faces, but in the end it was “Spotlight” who triumphed.

Last-Minute SAG Awards 2016 Predictions: Sentimentality and 'Diversity'

30 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

2016 SAG Awards Predictions: The Winners Last-minute SAG Awards predictions, as the 2016 SAG Awards ceremony will begin in about half an hour (Jan. 30) at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. So far, there's one clear winner at the ceremony. That's veteran film and (mostly) television actress Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show, Annie), who will be handed the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be handling that particular presentation. As for the SAG Awards' competitive motion picture categories, this year remains murkier than most even though the list of likely winners has been narrowed down in recent weeks – especially following the Golden Globes ceremony and the Oscar nominations announcement.
