Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
Before we hit the Emmy Awards one last group poll. I asked friends which Emmy nominated TV characters mix and matched from different series would they love to see paired up?
True Sherlock: His Last Vow
Michael: I would mash up Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock with McConaughey's Rust. Sherlock would've knocked out that Yellow King business out in 20 minutes leaving the rest of the season for them to get drunk and philosophize.
Denny: Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons on The Big Bang Theory) and Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba on Orange is the New Black) are served a pie. Hilarity ensues. Or: Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) gets sent to Litchfield prison and insults Red's (Kate Mulgrew) cooking on her first day. Delicious scheming and sassy put-downs ensue. And I really want to see Allison Janney and Julie Bowen's characters from Mom and Modern Family get drinks together, just because.

Indeed, the success of The Big C: Hereafter‘s Laura Linney, Game Change‘s Julianne Moore, Mildred Pierce‘s Kate Winslet, Temple Grandin‘s Claire Danes and Grey Gardens‘ Jessica Lange since 2009 could be good news for Burton and Taylor‘s Helena Bonham Carter, American Horror Story: Coven‘s Oscar-winning scene-stealer Lange or The Trip to Bountiful‘s Cicely Tyson. »

An enlightening portrait of 12 adults from across the autistic spectrum that sheds some much needed light on a subculture that could do with some demystifying. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

April is Autism Awareness Month in the United States, but while autism is something that families and schools and pediatricians are dealing with at ever increasing rates, there isn’t much awareness of neuro-atypicalness in pop culture. Rain Man — now more than a quarter of a century old — is probably still the film that first comes to mind for “autism in pop culture,” though there have been a few recent films with protagonists whom we might suspect are on the autism spectrum, though it’s never mentioned: Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, for two.

Take a look at any list of movies dealing with autism — we tend to get them around this time, as yesterday was World Autism Awareness Day and April is National Autism Awareness Month — and you’ll never see Christopher Smith‘s Triangle alongside such serious titles as Rain Man, Temple Grandin and the documentary Refrigerator Mothers. Maybe it’s just not well-known enough, although the terribly under-seen Snow Cake (featuring Sigourney Weaver’s greatest performance) is on those lists, and it’s even more obscure. The problem for Triangle is likely to do with its autistic character getting so little screen time. The movie is not about autism or autistic persons on the surface, like those mentioned above. However, there is an argument for the whole thing being representative of an autistic mind. Occasionally filmmakers attempt to depict disorders narratively in the form of metaphorical plots. We’ve seen one that ended up taking place completely inside »

David Strathairn is set for a lead role in ABC‘s high-concept drama pilot Clementine, from feature scribe Dean Georgaris, ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co.

Strathairn will play Henry, her father. The actor, who won an Emmy for HBO’s Temple Grandin, recently toplined the Syfy series Alphas and was seen in Lincoln. He is repped by ICM Partners and Ryan Entertainment. Related: ABC Pilots 2014 »

Claire Danes smoldered at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in La on Saturday night. The Homeland star looked gorgeous with her darker hair and handsome husband, Hugh Dancy, on her arm. This is her first appearance this award season, as she was nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series. Claire had some stiff competition with Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn, American Horror Story: Coven's Jessica Lange, Scandal's Kerry Washington, and Downton Abbey's Maggie Smith up against her. It would have been her second SAG statue in a row and third overall - she won last year for Homeland and in 2010 for her work in Temple Grandin - but Dame Maggie proved victorious. Is this Claire's best SAG Awards look to date? Be sure to vote in our fashion and beauty polls! View Slideshow › »
