Pictures are really worth a thousand words. Movie fans received quite the surprise Wednesday when fansites captured Adam Driver filming scenes for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film. But while reports first suggested the Girls actor would be playing a top secret villain, the new images may tell a completely different story. It appears Driver is wearing an orange Rebel flight suit symbolizing he's part of the good guys, aka the Rebel Alliance. Other photos also show Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie wearing another new Alliance costume. Whatever his role will be, Driver can count on the support of his Girls co-star Lena Dunham.

Corey Stoll and Adam Driver are familiar faces to fans of "The Strain" and "Girls," but both actors were awed by their iconically familiar costars in the new dramedy "This is Where I Leave You." For Driver, costar Jane Fonda's 1971 film "Klute" was a personal favorite. For Stoll, costar Tina Fey was more than just a towering "SNL" alum. She was his favorite reason to watch television at all. "When '30 Rock' was on the air, that was the show I had to watch every week," Stoll said. "It's such an incredible accomplishment, that show. It's so consistently funny in so many different ways." We interviewed both costars about their rambunctious fight scenes, feeling like a family on the set of "This is Where I Leave You," and why Driver doesn't watch his own movies. "This is Where I Leave You" opens September 19. »

Lena Dunham says she and Adam Driver have a pact that if she watches Star Wars, he's finally going to watch Girls. "The funny thing is I've never actually seen Star Wars," Dunham recently told me. "I understand that this is a huge cultural phenomenon but I get none of the references. As a young woman growing up in New York City it's actually not that hard to avoid Star Wars. It's not that hard to move out of Star Wars circles. But then Driver landed a part in director J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. "Now I'm going to have to watch—to understand," Dunham said. "Adam's never watched Girls so we made a deal I would watch Star Wars if he »
Judd Apatow constantly has several irons in the fire, working with actors, writers, comedians and protégés on all kinds of projects. His latest is a return to TV. Netflix has ordered two seasons of “Love,” which stars writer/actor Paul Rust from “I Love You, Beth Cooper” (he also had a tiny cameo in “Inglorious Basterds”) and Gillian Jacobs (“Community”).

Back in February, long before Girls star Adam Driver was officially cast in Star Wars: Episode VII, it was rumored that he is playing the bad guy, described in the same vein as iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader. Since none of the cast members' characters have ever been officially confirmed, many just assumed that Adam Driver is playing a Sith or other equally evil rogue. But today we have new photos from the set that appear to prove that is not the case.
Facebook user Rick Lawrence posted a number of photos from England, one of which appears to be a long-distance, blurry shot of Adam Driver wearing an X-Wing pilot uniform. The photos also appear to include John Boyega and Gwendoline Christie, but they are too blurry to tell for sure. Take a look at the images below, then read on for more details.

Broadway’s most exhilarating rock concert burst onto the boards earlier this year when Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the silky fishnets of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, earning a Tony for the role and ushering the East German rocker into the hands of a new generation of fans. After Harris departed the show in August, The Book of Mormon veteran Andrew Rannells was tapped to fill Hedwig’s high heels. To say his turn is electric, heartbreaking, and wholly different from Harris’ would still be underselling the performance.

It's official: Confirming reports that have been floating around since the summer, Netflix announced on Tuesday (September 16) that it has given a two-season commitment to the new comedy "Love," which comes from Judd Apatow, among other producers. [Yes, there's an old joke involving Marilyn Monroe's "Let's Make Love" that I want to make here, but I can't remember exactly how the joke went.] Created by Apatow, Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin, "Love" won't premiere on Netflix until 2016, with the 10-episode first season. A 12-episode second season will premiere in 2017. Rust will also star in "Love," along with Gillian Jacobs, playing Gus and Mickey. The comedy looks at modern relationships, following the pair as they "they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid." Kinda like "You're the Worst." The half-hour comedy is set up at Legendary Television and Apatow Productions. Naturally, everybody involved has a blurb they want to share. »
