Meme: Bryan Singer Claims Proof of Innocence, Jon Hamm Slams Bieber, “Parenthood” Coming Out Altered By Crew Reactions

Kenny Brian revealed, Emma Stone loves Jennifer Lawrence, Sofia Vergara thinks it’s Ok to pay for sex

Happy Easter! Please overeat, hide some eggs and overindulge on chocolate that a strange rabbit broke into your home to leave for you.

Shall we get the Bryan Singer news out of the way first? Singer’s lawyer says they have proof that Singer wasn’t in Hawaii during the times named in the lawsuits, including credit card bills, phone records and shooting schedules.

Meanwhile, the lawyer for the accuser says that he plans to file three more lawsuits in Hawaii against other individuals for taking sexual advantage of his client via the same party circuit that Singer is accused of being a part of. He’ll then be filing other lawsuits in California against more Hollywood insiders. He also announced Egan is taking part in a documentary from Amy Berg about Hollywood sex abuses. »

Parenthood, Ep. 5.22, “The Pontiac” a heart-warming finish to an uneven season

18 April 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Parenthood, Season 5, Episode 22, “The Pontiac”

Written by Jason Katims

Directed by Lawrence Trilling

Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC

This week, on Parenthood: Haddie comes home, Sarah comes to her senses, and Zeek and Camille dance

Parenthood has had an uneven season. After starting the year out promisingly, odd and unexamined character choices started to take over the show, leaving the audience to connect the dots to understand the extreme reactions (or lack of reactions) demonstrated by several characters. Joel, swamped at work (except when he isn’t), reacts poorly to Julia’s indiscretion and leaves. Hank’s back, but he’s not with Sarah, and no one knows why. Kristina runs for mayor, because remission? , and Adam, inspired by her, convinces Crosby to start their own label. Several of these storylines overstayed their welcome, stretched too thinly over the 22-episode season, but fortunately the finale draws more »

Season finale review: 'Parenthood' - 'The Pontiac'

18 April 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the "Parenthood" season finale — and some thoughts on season 5 as a whole — coming up just as soon as we talk about the big tomato in the room... When NBC announced last spring that "Parenthood" would get its first full-season order since season 2 (and only its second one ever), it seemed like a great thing. Finally, the show would have time to properly service all of the great characters in its stable, would be able to pace story arcs better, and just have more room to breathe for all the great glorious messiness that is life in and among the Braverman family. Instead, things felt even more imbalanced and weirdly paced than in the show's shorter seasons. Some major characters got virtually nothing to do (Crosby's arc for the season was about mold, I think), while we suddenly learned an awful lot about Drew Holt and the spell he casts over the ladies. »

Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Bring Brad Pitt into Their Bedroom

18 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Dax Shepard's love affair with Brad Pitt just got a little more intimate. Earlier this week, the Parenthood actor, 39, visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where Ellen honored his well-known obsession with Pitt by giving him a Legends of the Fall-themed painting showing the two of them together. On Friday, Shepard's wife, Kristen Bell, makes her own appearance on the show, and reveals just where her husband decided to hang the painting. "It was the first thing he showed me when he got home," says Bell, 33. "He's like, 'Come on to my trunk, I gotta show you what Ellen got me. »

'Parenthood' finale react: A house is not a home

17 April 2014 9:44 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Even though I knew it was coming, losing the Braverman house hurts, guys. It hurts bad. Let’s be honest: Next to Joel, it was arguably my favorite thing about this show. Okay, that’s taking it too far, but I am going to miss that beautiful house for a number of reasons, and I didn’t even grow up there!

That being said, losing the house was not the thing that made me cry the hardest in this episode. Nope, that award (not surprisingly) goes to Mae Whitman and Matt Lauria. At the hospital, we finally got to meet Ryan’s mother, »

'Parenthood' finale preview: Creator on Haddie's return, renewal chances

17 April 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Parenthood closes out season 5 Thursday night with an episode that’s sure to be equal parts gut-punch and heartwarming — because, basically, both things are what you get with every episode of the show. In the preview for the finale that aired after last week’s penultimate episode, however, viewers learned there’s going to be at least one big surprise — an appearance from Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who has largely been absent from the main action while off at college and returns home with a female companion.

We called up creator Jason Katims for info on Haddie’s return and what »

David Hudgins Inks Overall Deal With Sony Pictures TV

11 April 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

In a competitive situation, Parenthood executive producer David Hudgins has signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures TV. Under the two-year pact, he will develop and potentially join existing studio projects. Hudgins is coming off a two-year overall deal at Universal TV where he worked on Jason Katims’ Parenthood, most recently as executive producer, in addition to developing a number of projects, including a legal drama that sold to CBS earlier this season. Before that, Hudgins worked on Friday Night Lights for the entire run of the series, serving as co-showrunner with Katims on the final season, which earned four Emmy nominations including best drama series. Hudgins, repped by Wme and Bryan Wolf, previously created Fox’s short-lived drama Past Life and worked on the WB drama Everwood. »

Parenthood, Ep. 5.21, “I’m Still Here” offers long-overdue character exploration

Parenthood, Season 5, Episode 21, “I’m Still Here”

Written by Ian Deichtman and Kristin Rusk Robinson

Directed by Scott Schaeffer

Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC

This week, on Parenthood: Kristina visits Gwen, Crosby is pitiful, and Sarah opens up

After months of stalling, last week’s “Cold Feet” jumpstarted all of the series’ stagnating season-long arcs, finally giving the show a bit of momentum. Thankfully that continues this week, with each of the threads not only progressed, but examined in a way they haven’t been for much of the season. Yes it’s easy to infer that Kristina’s impulsiveness this year stems from her cancer scare and exposure to the harsh impartiality and unpredictability of death, and we’ve seen a handful of scenes on this topic over the course of the season. But while there’s plenty to be said for letting the audience read between the lines, »

Good night for 'Scandal,' bad one for 'Community'

11 April 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

ABC and CBS tied in the 18-49 demo Thursday, with shows like Big Bang Theory and Scandal rustling up most of the viewers, says Nielsen.

The CBS sitcom, with a 4.6 rating and 15.9 million viewers, was not only the most-watched show for the night but it spread its good will the shows that followed: The Millers earned a 2.6 and 10.2 million and Two and a Half Men grabbed a 2.4 and 9.6 million. Eye viewers dispersed from there, however: The Crazy Ones tied its season low by posting a mere 1.7 (even though Mindy reunited with Mork!), the same rating earned by Elementary.

'Parenthood': Matt Lauria previews Ryan's emotional return (and a Luke Cafferty appearance?)

10 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If the previews for this week’s penultimate episode of Parenthood tell us anything, it’s that we’re going to need even more tissues than normal. And a key factor in that tear-jerking equation is, of course, the return of fan favorite (and love of Amber’s life) Ryan.

Last we saw Ryan, he was re-enlisting after having come to the realization that he is and always will be a soldier. And as an effect of that decision, he and Amber broke off their engagement. But now, after weeks of Amber drowning her sorrows in ice cream and pot, »

Casting Net: Brie Larson to star in Emma Donoghue's 'Room'; Plus, Matt Damon, more

9 April 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Brie Larson (Short Term 12) is set to star as Ma in the adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s 2010 best-seller Room about a kidnapped woman living in captivity with her 5-year-old son. Donohue wrote the script for director Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did, Frank). Lisa Schwarzbaum gave the book an A- and wrote: “Though the story’s chilling circumstances reflect the horrors endured by tabloid-famous abductees, Donoghue avoids all sensationalism. Instead, she gracefully distills what it means to be a mother — and what it’s like for a child whose entire world measures just 11 x 11.”  [Deadline]

Nearly four years after producer McG optioned the book in 2010, his adaptation of The D.U.F.F. is moving forward, with Mae Whitman in talks to star.

The project is based on Kody Keplinger's book, which follows a 17-year-old girl (Mae Whitman) who must deal with the stigma of becoming the Designated Ugly Fat Friend (The D.U.F.F.) in her group of friends. She teams up with other D.U.F.F.'s to take down their school's nefarious leader, Madison.

Ari Sandel, who won an Oscar in 2006 for his short film West Bank Story, is directing from a script by Josh A. Cagan (Bandslam). McG is producing through his Wonderland Sound and Vision company, alongside Mary Viola and Lane Shefter Bishop. Production is scheduled to begin this summer in Atlanta.
