You'll be kicking yourself if you don't see "The Stanford Prison Experiment" in theaters. Seriously. And, no, I'm not just saying that because I happen to know director Kyle Patrick Alvarez socially or that it's a Sundance Jury Award-winning movie or that it depicts one of the most shocking events to occur at one of America's greatest Universities over the past fifty years.* The real reason is that besides the questions it raises about the human condition and our ability to descend to abject cruelty, "Stanford" features a once in a life time cast that will dominate Hollywood for the next 15 to 20 years.* *It also has earned strong reviews to date including a 71 grade on Metacritic and 78% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Based on true events, the new drama chronicles the 1971 psychological experiment that found Stanford University students sorted into the roles of prison guard or a generic prisoner. In theory, »

When you think Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll frontman Johnny Rock, think Mick Jagger without the mindbending fame. Bono without the gravitas. Steven Tyler without the scarves. David Bowie without the longevity.
In fact, take just about any classic rock band’s lead singer and disregard the wealth and stardom, and you’re left with Johnny (played by Rescue Me‘s Denis Leary), the hard-partying face of the 1990s band The Heathens.

Given that Scream Queens hails from Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee and American Horror Story, it’s not that surprising that the Fox series will find a lot of teen characters doing their damnedest to break decibel records.
In the brief trailer for the horror-comedy, there’s a whole lot of screaming, yelling and hammy line-reading, all of which was expected from the show, which follows a college campus reeling from a series of grisly murders committed by a terrifying individual in a devil mask.
Emma Roberts stars as the head of sorority Kkt, which finds itself at the center of the chaos as various sorority girls wind up targets of the killer. The all-star lineup of celebs includes (in a deliciously meta bit of stunt casting) original Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele (of Glee), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee), Abigail Breslin (Haunter), Ariana Grande (Victorious »

Fox is assembling a remarkably high-profile cast for its upcoming Ryan Murphy anthology series Scream Queens. In addition to previously-cast series leads Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, the comedy-horror series will star Lea Michele (Fox’s Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood). Meanwhile, Victorious co-star and breakout chanteuse Ariana Grande has landed a recurring role.
Whether all those actors will be singing as well as acting is unclear, but it’s a sure thing that Michele, Palmer and Grande will belt out at least a few numbers. Breslin is a likely candidate for a singing role, too, seeing as she showcased her vocal abilities in the little-seen drama Janie Jones back in 2010 and has also been an occasional member of dream-pop band Stargroves.
The stacked cast is less surprising when you consider the show’s pedigree. »
