Based on the memoir by Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, the Peter Berg–directed Lone Survivor follows four Navy SEALs (Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch) trying to stay alive after their location is discovered during a covert mission in Afghanistan. Though Wahlberg is the face on the poster, it's Kitsch who unexpectedly shines: After toplining three misfires last year in John Carter, Battleship, and Savages, he's finally found the right vehicle for his easy, masculine charisma, and as Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, he displays the sort of leading-man potential that many predicted when Kitsch came off a hot run in the TV series Friday Night Lights. Last week, he sat down with Vulture to discuss the next phase of his career (which will include an against-type turn in Ryan Murphy's AIDS drama The Normal Heart) and why he'll never, ever do a Friday Night Lights movie.What »

"American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy had his usual post-mortem chat with EW following last night's episode of "Coven," and in addition to providing some teases of what ahead for the witches, he touched on casting for "Ahs" Season 4.

What can we expect in the winter cliffhanger episode called “Head”?
We follow the travails of Kathy Bates’ head, and things happen to other characters’ literal heads or intellects or brain power. She’s such a villain; yet, Kathy’s so empathetic so it’s become this weird thing where I’m shocked that people are rooting for Madame Lalaurie. I think what happens in the winter cliffhanger “Head” is beyond hilarious... Fiona (Jessica Lange) certainly doesn’t want her head in the house. It’s just sort of »

[Spoiler Alert If You Haven't Seen The Latest American Horror Story: Coven!!!!!]
It was teased on EW’s recent American Horror Story: Coven cover but last night we saw Madame Lalaurie (Kathy Bates) literally lose her head. Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) lopped off her archenemy’s noggin and sent it in a box to Fiona (Jessica Lange), payback for the death of her minotaur boyfriend. But that was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of dramatic events. Joan (Patti LuPone) gave her son a toxic enema. Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) cut out the heart of a homeless man. And Fiona wore some really fabulous turbans. EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy »

“Julia Roberts is a consummate actress with a range as vast as her talent,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner. “Her ability to consistently give standout performances over the past 25 years is remarkable. In her latest, August: Osage County, she is a key catalyst in a darkly comic tale of a family coming back together after tragedy strikes.”
Also set to be honored at the Palm Springs Convention Center gala are Sandra Bullock, Bruce Dern, Matthew McConaughey and Steve McQueen. Past recipients of the Spotlight award include Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams and Helen Hunt.

Over the next five years Australian producers will find it even harder to secure theatrical releases for their films around the world but films will be capable of reaching even more eyeballs via myriad digital platforms. That was the consensus view among the experts at the panel entitled My film is great, so why is no one interested?: Positioning your film for the marketplace, at the Screen Forever conference on Wednesday. Bec Smith, an agent at UTA Independent Film Group in Los Angeles, predicted theatrical deals for Australian films will be .more elusive. and a lot of content will migrate to digital platforms. Craig Emanuel, a partner at La-based entertainment law firm Loeb & Loeb, opined that in five years theatrical releases for independent films worldwide will be the exception rather than the rule. But he told the assembled producers that that if that happens it would not necessarily be »

It’s bracing to watch the new movie Dallas Buyers Club on the big screen, and not simply because its star Matthew McConaughey famously shed so much weight to play Ron Woodroof, an HIV-afflicted rodeo cowboy who smuggled life-extending drugs into the country in 1986. The real shock is that it’s been so long since Hollywood offered a major release that dealt even tangentially with HIV/AIDS, let alone offered a plotline and a lead character that puts the virus front and center. But Dallas Buyers Club doesn’t arrive this weekend in a vacuum: Coming on the heels of last year’s powerhouse documentary How to Survive a Plague and preceding Ryan Murphy’s HBO adaptation of the Larry Kramer play The Normal Heart (due out in 2014), these projects suggest that the time is right for a new cinematic look at AIDS, especially one focused on the early days of the epidemic. »

Julia Roberts turned 46 on Monday, Oct. 28, but the Academy Award winner celebrated the occasion a day earlier with husband Danny Moder in New York City.

Later that night, according to The New York Post's Page Six, the actress attended opening night of Broadway's Betrayal, starring real-life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and directed by Tony Award winner Mike Nichols.

Does this mean a “Doggie Chow” scene can’t be far behind?
If she does say so herself.
Here’s your Tasty Two For Tuesday With Matt Bomer This week we’ve got something special, as Matt appeared on yesterday’s Live With Kelly And Michael to talk about White Collar, The Normal Heart, making sweet love to cronuts, »
As a guest on "Live with Kelly and Michael," Matt Bomer didn't talk about "50 Shades of Grey" the way many may have wanted the "White Collar" actor to do. Instead, Bomer talked about Halloween and his upcoming role in the film adaptation of "The Normal Heart."
It turns out that Halloween is a really big deal for Bomer, the father of three kids. Unfortunately for fans (and for the "Live" hosts), Bomer didn't actually know what he would dress up as this year. The kids get to make that decision -- previous costume suggestions from them have included Woody from "Toy Story" and a "zombie lunch lady." Zombies are a big deal for at least one of the kids, apparently. Their dad mentioned that while two were dressing as Ninja Turtles, the third would be a "zombie football player."
All of this was very adorable.
Less adorable but definitely fascinating »
Tony Parker, who used be married to Eva Longoria, is apologizing for using a gay slur in a Eurobasket press conference. Parker said “J’ai l’impression qu’on avait peur, qu’on jouait comme des ‘tapettes.’” With “tapettes” loosely translating to “fag” or “sissy.” His apology is pretty standard. “I’d like to apologize to the gay community. I did not want to offend them. If I have offended the gay community, I apologize. It was not my intention at all. It is not right to say what I said I’m sorry. And apologize.”

When TVLine’s Michael Ausiello spoke with the actor on the Emmy red carpet – shortly before Parsons picked up his third statuette, we might add – the star also disclosed a major (for Sheldon, anyway) development in Sheldon and Amy’s Season 7 relationship. (Something tells us Amy may not be thrilled… )

The White Collar star will take on the role of the Hollywood legend in the new film.
Following a serious car accident in 1956, he struggled with painkiller and alcohol addiction until his death in 1966 at the age of 45.
Bomer was also a fan favourite choice for 50 Shades of Grey before the casting of Charlie Hunnam.
Producer Michael Din confirmed that Bomer landed the lead role in the film which will begin shooting next year ahead of a 2015 release.
The story centers on the bisexual Clift's relationship with Elizabeth Taylor following the filming of 1951's "A Place in the Sun," the iconic role considered one of the great performances of all time.

HBO has some high profile gay projects coming up in the next year and now we've learned more about one of them, a series set in San Francisco, "Looking."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, out actor Russell Tovey, best known for playing a werewolf in the BBC series "Being Human," has been cast as "Kevin, an accomplished video game wunderkind who has achieved financial and critical success at a young age."
Little is known about the HBO dramedy except that it is set in San Francisco and concerns the lives of young gay men looking for love in the city. Fittingly, the series has some well known gay players in front of and behind the camera. Aside from the addition of Tovey to the cast, the series will also star Jonathan Groff and was written by Michael Lannan, who recently worked on James Franco's "Interior. Leather Bar." The pilot being directed by Andrew Haigh, »

I’m sure you’re still recovering from the adrenaline-fueled and ARTPOPpy rush of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but if you’re like me, you’re already searching for another award show fix. Have no fear: The Emmys are coming up in September, and we’re previewing the big TV trophycast with a rundown of the show’s 11 hottest acting nominees.
I first dug this guy in The Young Victoria, but his amazingly squarish jawline has earned Emmy cred on Showtime’s unstoppable Homeland. At the TCAs this past month, he wore suspenders and looked strangely Amish. He’s weird, and I’m proud of Keira Knightley for having dated him.
The 50-year-old gay actor stole our hearts in The Normal Heart, which earned him a Tony and gave him the »

Julia Roberts hit the beach alongside her shirtless husband, Danny Moder, and their sons, Phinnaeus and Henry, yesterday in Malibu. While Danny showed off his fit physique, Julia stayed covered up in a long-sleeved, white t-shirt and pants for the sunny outing. She and her son Henry later warmed up in matching hooded ponchos as she toted a boogie board off the beach. Julia's family fun comes after wrapping up work on two new projects, one being her star-studded film August: Osage County, in which she stars alongside Meryl Streep and Benedict Cumberbatch. She also recently finished up filming on Ryan Murphy's HBO TV movie, The Normal Heart. »

On July 18, Jim Parsons received his fifth Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy -- an honor that does not diminish with time, according to The Big Bang Theory star. In fact, every role, fan, ratings point and opportunity he's gotten as a result of playing Sheldon Cooper has been a cherry on top of the sundae that's mostly cherries by this point.
With The Big Bang Theory resuming production on season seven this week, Parsons swapped New York City (where his summer was spent reprising the role of Tommy Boatwright in Ryan Murphy's HBO adaptation of Broadway's The Normal Heart) for Los Angeles. A trip, he jokes, that's quickly becoming a yearly ritual required to properly slip back into Sheldon's shoes.
Upon landing back in La, Parsons rang up ETonline to reflect on the sublime six years he's spent with Sheldon and reveal his hopes for the next six.
ETonline: Congratulations »
