Watch: First Behind-The-Scenes Clip From Ondi Timoner's Russell Brand Documentary

8 September 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

American audiences know comedy superstar Russell Brand best from his roles as the drunk, self-appointed spiritualist, semi-airheaded Brit in box-office successes like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to The Greek”, as well as his theatrical failures like the wholly unnecessary remake of “Arthur”. What they might not know is how active Brand is in the world of politics. His YouTube channel, which has around 500.000 subscribers, is full of videos where he uses his unique wit and energy to take down Fox News and various right-wing entities. Director Ondi Timoner’s ("Dig!," "We Live In Public") feature documentary about Brand, simply titled “Brand: The Film,” seems to cover the many facets of his eccentric personality, including his political leanings. In the first behind-the-scenes clip from the film, Brand and his friends, including OasisNoel Gallagher, talk about his aspirations to literally change the world via fame. Brand’s fisting analogy (no pun. »

Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Showtime, Fox 21 Developing Dark Comedy from Creator of UK’s ‘Spy’

20 May 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime and Fox 21 have closed a development deal on “Control Alt Delete,” a comedy created and written by Simeon Goulden.

Sounding like a cross between Showtime’s “Dexter” and “House of Lies,” the half-hour project follows four smart-ass, workaholic associates in a “white shoe” law firm who are feverishly trying to move up the corporate ladder while also avoiding becoming the next victim of the office serial killer.

Goulden will executive produce alongside Chernin’s Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope and Small Dog Pictures’ Renate Radford. Jason Winer will direct and also executive produce under the Small Dog banner.

Goulden, who is known for creating the 2011 version of the UK comedy “Spy,” is represented by UTA and Curtis Brown Group. Winer is represented by ICM Partners and Mosaic. His directing credits include the feature film “Arthur” and the recently canceled CBS comedy “The Crazy Ones,” which he also executive produced. »

Johnny Depp's 'Mortdecai' Set for Early 2015 Release

23 April 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In the wake of the poor critical reception and box office performance for Transcendence you better believe all eyes will be on Johnny Depp's next vehicle Mortdecai, which again features Depp in a role unlike those that have made him so popular in the mainstream, though the fact this is a comedy may work in his favor. amz asin="0141003774" size="small"David Koepp, who previously directed Depp in 2004's Secret Window, directs and co-wrote the screenplay (based on Kyril Bonfiglioli's three-novel anthology) with Eric Aronson and Peter Baynham (Bruno, Arthur) and Depp is surrounded with an impressive cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Olivia Munn, Oliver Platt, Aubrey Plaza and Jeff Goldblum. As for the story... here's the official word: Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp »

Meg Ryan to Narrate CBS' How I Met Your Dad

23 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Meg Ryan has joined the cast of CBS' upcoming sitcom "How I Met Your Dad," EW reports. She'll provide the show's first-person narration, just like Bob Saget did on "How I Met Your Mother." The spinoff, first announced last October is set to star Greta Gerwig ( Frances Ha , Arthur ). Emily Spivey ("Up All Night") and "Mother" co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are writing the pilot and are attached to executive produce. The show will center on Gerwig's all-new female lead, Sally, and her own group of friends with Ryan voicing "Future Sally." "How I Met Your Mother," which starred Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan, recently concluded its ninth and final season. »

Greta Gerwig to star in How I Met Your Mother spinoff

13 February 2014 3:49 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The star of edgy comedies like Frances Ha is to step into the Us sitcom mainstream with How I Met Your Father, the spinoff to the long-running How I Met Your Mother

Greta Gerwig, the star of Frances Ha and a host of other leftfield film comedies, is to star in and potentially co-write the mainstream sitcom How I Met Your Father, a spinoff of the successful and long-running How I Met Your Mother. She will also have a producer role.

The show is currently only at pilot stage, but given the success of the original show and with Mother's writer-producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas on board, the prospects for a full series seems good.

How I Met Your Mother centers around the concept of a father in 2030 telling his children – in increasingly intricate detail over the course of nine seasons and nearly 200 episodes – how he met their mother in the present day. »

'How I Met Your Dad': Why Greta Gerwig casting is a good sign

12 February 2014 10:27 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When you love something, you want to protect it.

So when it was announced a few months back that the beloved, long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother was getting a spinoff, fan reaction was pretty mixed: On the one hand, great! Let’s continue the party at MacLarens. On the other hand, the television landscape doesn’t have a great history of spinoffs based on recent popular sitcoms (Rip Joey). While How I Met Your Father Dad will have the same creators, many fans –myself included – still thought that after nine seasons, it might be best to leave well »

Greta Gerwig To Write, Produce & Star In 'How I Met Your Mother' Spinoff Series 'How I Met Your Dad'

12 February 2014 6:02 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Judging by some of the reactions around Twitter last night, you'd think this news was like when Nirvana signed to Geffen Records or something. Yep, indie darling Greta Gerwig is headed to mainstream network TV (the horror!) to star in "How I Met Your Dad," the spinoff series from "How I Met Your Mother." So, is Gerwig selling out? Is she giving a big middle finger to the roots of her career? Nah. It should be noted that Gerwig is also producing and likely writing the series (the trades seem fuzzy on the latter point), which are two pretty big hats to wear, and presumably will allow the series to have much more of her voice than if she was just going to star. Moreover, as past Hollywood stints have suggested ("Arthur," "No Strings Attached," even "To Rome With Love"), it seems that no one quite knows how to use her, »

Weirdest News of '14 (Thus Far): Greta Gerwig To Headline 'How I Met Your Mother' Spinoff

11 February 2014 8:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's almost like the universe is punishing me. For what I am unsure.

Greta Gerwig with a giant poster of her face this time last year

When I spoke with Greta Gerwig a few months ago she was singing the praises of Jacques Demy films and Leos Carax's Holy Motors and the movie musical; her indie cred was most definitely intact, she's actually a cinephile (unlike many actors) and her taste is impeccable. She was starring in stupendous music videos, keeping prestigious company in awards season, and coming off the high of a great run with the brilliant Frances Ha.

And now she'll follow all that with a spin-off of a formulaic old school sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" that's already many years past the season (5) where even the best shows start to falter from fatigue and stagnation?I understand that money is a powerfully motivating factor in most careers. »

'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff casts lead role

11 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Ready to meet the new Mother? How I Met Your Dad has cast its star.

Actress Greta Gerwig has landed the lead role in CBS’ much-anticipated How I Met Your Mother spinoff pilot.

She’ll play Sally, who gradually reveals how met her partner in flashback. She’s described as “a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life. She has just figured out that she has nothing in common with her husband of less than a year. A break-up is inevitable, but Sally will find a solid circle »

7 Reasons Why Helen Mirren Is Awesome

10 February 2014 2:33 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

As Helen Mirren is due to be presented with BAFTA’s highest honour, the Fellowship, on February 16th at the BAFTA Awards Ceremony, it is the perfect time to remind ourselves of and celebrate the Dame’s pure awesomeness.

Russell Brand Eyes Werner Herzog’s Vernon God Little

6 February 2014 6:51 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Russell Brand has gone awfully quiet as of late. After really breaking out with 2010′s Get Him To The Greek, he starred in a couple flops (Hop, Arthur) and then practically disappeared. Sure, he’s shown up here and there (voicing a role in Despicable Me 2 this past summer, among other things), but he’s certainly not as big a name as he once was.

However, it looks like Brand is getting back into things now as The Wrap is reporting that he’s eyeing Werner Herzog’s Vernon God Little, based on Dbc Pierre’s Booker Prize-winning 2003 novel. Furthermore, the report states that in addition to Brand, Sasha Pieterse and Austin Abrams are also in talks for roles in the film.

Scripted by Andrew Birkin, Vernon God Little will be a “satirical black comedy that comments on America’s obsession with both fame and violence.” The story itself centers on a school shooting, »

'Sherlock' season 3 finale: Amanda Abbington reveals her James Bond link

3 February 2014 10:15 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"They're all pretty screwed up," Amanda Abbington tells Zap2it about her character and those of her "Sherlock" co-stars. "She's an assassin; he's a sociopath; and John's killed a psychopathic cabbie."

In Sunday's (Feb.2) Season 3 finale, Abbington's character, pregnant Mrs. Mary Watson, wife of Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman), best pal to Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), reveal herself to be a trained assassin just before popping a bullet from a serious-looking gun into Sherlock's torso.

As it turned out she was being blackmailed by the real villain, Magnussen (Lars MIkkelsen) and didn't shoot to kill, but it's safe to say the revelation was a shock in an episode full of shocks.

The gun Abbington used in the scene now links "Sherlock" to another great British franchise.

"I was taught admirably by a firearms expert," Abbington says. "I did really well, loved it. I was so frightened of it. He gave me this fun, »
