St. Patrick’s Day: 7 TV Episodes on Netflix That Are Even Better Than a Pot of Gold

17 March 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With so much hype surrounding shows’ Christmas and Halloween specials, it’s easy to forget that there have been some great St. Patrick’s Day episodes in the TV world. So here are a lucky seven episodes that’ll get you excited to celebrate the holiday! Or make you want to stay at home and chill, since all are available to stream on Netflix.

“30 Rock”

Like a double rainbow, “30 Rock” gave its fans not one, but two reasons to get excited, as it aired two St. Patrick’s Day episodes in 2009 and 2012. However, the 2009 episode, “The Funcooker,” is the standout. Written by Tom Ceraulo and Donald Glover, the episode sees Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) attend jury duty, in which the woman on trial hilariously reflects Liz’s own work problems. She must also juggle problems that arise when her show’s stars (Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski) pass out and curse while hosting the St. »

What Scott Stuber's new Netflix job could mean for Hollywood

14 March 2017 9:56 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Streaming giant takes significant stride with long-anticipated hire of former Universal production chief.

When Scott Stuber assumes his new role as head of Netflix’s original film initiative in a month or so, the film industry will be watching closely.

The streaming giant has spooked the industry for several years now with headline-grabbing plays like the $12.5m Sundance acquisition of Us and multiple territories on Oscar bait Mudbound, and earlier out-of-festival buys on the likes of War Machine and Bright.

Yet despite a world-class TV pipeline and Oscar-nominated documentaries, the original film business has not earned the same level of acclaim.

Chief content officer Ted Sarandos knew it was time to act.

Netflix wants to [compete with the] studios in production and attract more stars, producers and directors who can deliver high-quality content,” says entertainment business analyst Hal Vogel.

To do this, the streaming service brought in Stuber, whose tenure as former Universal vice-chairman of worldwide production encompassed the Fast »

Scott Stuber to head Netflix original film initiative

14 March 2017 12:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

War Machine, First They Killed My Father, Bright among roster of titles scheduled to launch this year.

One of the biggest open secrets in Hollywood was confirmed on Tuesday as it emerged Scott Stuber, the former vice-chairman of worldwide production at Universal, will head Netflix’s original film initiative.

The appointment is a coup for deep-pocketed streaming service as it attempts to draw big names and big productions into the fold beyond those that are already lined up for release this year (see below).

Stuber had been courted for the top job at Paramount and will now lead the development, production and acquisition of Netflix’s growing slate of original films for a global subscriber base the company said currently numbered more than 93m.

The new hire most recently founded and ran Bluegrass Films, the Universal-based production company behind such hits as Ted, and Central Intelligence. Bluegrass will transition to partner Dylan Clark and continue its TV »

14 March 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Stuber will head up Netflix’s fledgling film division, developing, acquiring, and producing movies for the streaming service, it was announced Tuesday.

The producer who made films like “Ted,” “Central Intelligence,” and “Patriots Day” had also been in the running to replace Brad Grey atop Paramount Pictures.

Stuber was said to be more interested in the Netflix job, believing that it would give him more autonomy to make movies and perhaps have a broader portfolio. The streaming giant claims a worldwide audience of more than 93 million.

Scott Stuber Eyes Netflix Job, Also Pursued by Paramount

1 March 2017 11:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Producer and former Universal Pictures production chief Scott Stuber is talking to Netflix about taking an executive position with the streaming service’s feature film unit, sources confirmed.

The producer who made films like “Ted” and “Patriots Day” has also been interviewed by Viacom CEO Bob Bakish, who is looking to find a successor to Brad Grey to top Paramount Pictures.

Stuber is said to be more interested in the Netflix job, believing that it would give him more autonomy to make movies and perhaps have a broader portfolio, while the Paramount job could involve a greenlight committee that would include Bakish and others.

Both Netflix and Paramount are said to be intent to fill the top jobs as soon as possible. In November, Netflix lost Pauline Fischer, the executive who oversaw original films, though Stuber would likely be in position for a larger role. Grey left after a dozen years at Paramount, »

The true story behind Dougray Scott playing Wolverine in X-Men and why Hugh Jackman took over

28 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at a time when Hugh Jackman was not Wolverine

There was a lot of buzz and excitement in 1999. People around planet earth were excited to see what the new Millennium would bring; while big companies panicked that the Y2K bug would kill all their hard work and shut down the working world. For Dougray Scott, 1999 was set to be the year that changed his career. He had been handpicked by Tom Cruise to play the villain in M:i:2 and he was set to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.

The adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics property had been a long one. In 1984 Marvel writers Gerry Conway and Rob Thomas wrote a screenplay for production company Orion Pictures (Platoon) who had optioned the film rights. But when the company fell into financial troubles the rights went over to Carolco Pictures (First Blood) who began »

The 32-year-old Ghost in The Shell actress, who quietly split from husband Roman Dauriac last summer, shares her opinions of marriage in a new interview in the March/April 2017 issue of Playboy magazine — which appears to have been conducted before news of the split surfaced in late January.

“I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing,” she says. “I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person. »

The 12 Mark Wahlberg films where he holds a gun on the poster

Jake Wilson Feb 28, 2017

From The Big Hit to Patriots Day, we explore Mark Wahlberg's dozen films where he holds a gun on the promo poster....

Mark Wahlberg is a man of many talents. His rhymes are fresh, his frown is legendary, and it turns out he’s pretty decent in a bout of fisticuffs. 

See related  David Fincher's unfinished projects Looking back at David Fincher's Alien 3 House Of Cards season 5: everything we know so far

And then there's his acting. He has been in a wealth of films, usually fighting for, or alongside, the American flag. He's a gun-toting ass-kicker, and the world seems to dig it.

This is his game, his brand. Wahlberg moves between moral, no-nonsense cop and powerful, maverick law breaker and whilst he doesn’t always play armed characters, it is through these films that we can see the strands that »

6 Memorable Moments From Past Oscar Nomination Ceremonies

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

We’re just hours away from finding out the nominations for the 2017 Oscars — but this year is going to be a little different. Instead of a decades-old tradition of delivering the nominations via a live ceremony with press and publicists in attendance, the Academy has a new format and will produce its own in-house announcement that will stream online and on Good Morning America. The super early reveal time, unfortunately, will be sticking around.

There are different ways of looking at this change in the process. It could be a way to go more digital and spread the nominations in a more efficient way or it is an opportunity for the Academy — specifically president Cheryl Boone Isaacs — to avoid having to confronting the press about how the nominations shake up. Before this modification takes hold, let’s look »

‘Sneaky Pete’: Bryan Cranston Tackles New Challenges With Amazon Drama Series

12 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bryan Cranston was moving around the set like a lion on the prowl.

On a soundstage in Brooklyn on a late September morning, he was in his element, working on a tense, confrontational scene with actors he had handpicked for the drama series “Sneaky Pete,” which drops Jan. 13 on Amazon. With each take, Cranston changed his approach to the showdown among unsavory characters in the backroom of a seedy gambling joint in New York City. He added and subtracted menacing physical gestures, throaty snorts, and nervous laughter. He switched the path of his pacing around a large table. He massaged his monologue, adding pauses and changing the inflection of key words from a guttural whisper to an angry bark.

As he experimented through at least eight lengthy takes that morning, he held the rapt attention of everyone on the set. Actors who weren’t even in the scene gathered around the periphery to catch a master class »

The former Prez and the former Prez candidate dined at Milos in Midtown, with good pals Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.   They weren't much in the mood for chitchat as they left, but Ted spilled the beans on who paid.
