Many online users are not happy that Lena Dunham endorses Hillary Clinton for president in the 2016 election, while the Girls star and creator has fired back at her critics in a, well, interesting way. Hillary, 67, a Democratic Party Leader, former Secretary of State and wife of former two-term President Bill Clinton, 68, had announced her presidential bid, her second, on April 12. If she wins, she would become the first female U.S. president in its 238-year history. After her announcement, Dunham, 29, expressed her support on Instagram. On Friday, she shared a selfie of herself at Hillary's headquarters in New York City, holding a blue campaign bumper sticker in »

Details have finally been revealed about Andy Serkis' character. Just a precious few. Information about the new film, the first of a third trilogy, has been released gradually since the movies were announced in 2013. The new Star Wars features several returning stars, such as Harrison Ford, and a lot of newbies, including Girls' Adam Driver. Few details about their roles have already been revealed, while Serkis' was kept under wraps. Until Thursday. That day, StarWars.com published an interview with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, who photographed members of the cast in costume, on the set, earlier this year for Vanity Fair. Pics of other actors were »
For months, one of the mystery roles in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has revolved around Andy Serkis. Who exactly he would be playing and would he once again don a motion capture suit has been a question on everyone’s mind. After the first trailer was released last December it was revealed the dialogue spoken throughout is actually from Serkis, confirming some theories that he could be playing a Sith Lord.
Some of those questions have at last been answered today as Andy Serkis was announced to be playing Supreme Leader Snoke of the First Order. With this announcement also came a picture of Serkis in a full motion capture suit sitting in a Emperor Palpatine-like pose.
Already the name Snoke has been gaining attention online with some people suggesting Snoke is a fake name to keep the real one hidden from the public for a while longer. »

The Hollywood Reporter hosted an especially candid and entertaining roundtable interview with some of TV's best and brightest comic actresses, and the results speak for themselves. The participants (and probable Emmy nominees) -- Lena Dunham ("Girls"), Ellie Kemper ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"), Kate McKinnon ("SNL"), Gina Rodriguez ("Jane the Virgin"), Tracee Ellis Ross ("Black-ish") and Amy Schumer ("Inside Amy Schumer") -- spoke out about what it's like to be a prominent woman in comedy and, in some cases, running their own TV shows. Here are the best bits of the roundtable, in which the actress-comediennes discuss nudity and sex on set, overt and covert sexism at the workplace, the difficulty of actually asking for higher pay, death and rape threats on social media, the limited roles for women of color, the late-night gender gap and the ongoing issue of "fuckability." THR: Is there...

Just in time for your next Summer road trip, Thompson Square's Shawna and Keifer Thompson have created a fun road-trip playlist for Popsugar! The married duo and chart-topping country act knows a thing or two about great music, and they shared some of their favorite songs for this catchy mix. "We like tunes that remind us of 'back in the day.' Songs that have a killer groove, great lyrics - the ones you hear and get mad because you didn't write them," said Keifer, adding, "We're a big fan of those loud guitars. They make us want to drive fast!" Shawna agreed, saying, "We're both big blues fans, too, so those songs always make the list. When it's late and the road is long, putting on the Merle Haggard box set or any classic country and letting it roll is a great choice. That's what we both were raised on. »
Lena Dunham, the creator and star of HBO's Girls, understands the criticism she faced after the show's first season concerning the overwhelmingly white cast that seemingly misrepresented the reality of a multicultural Brooklyn. While speaking on The Hollywood Reporter's Comedy Actress Roundtable, Dunham explained, "I had been thinking so much about sort of representing weirdo girls and chubby girls and strange half-Jews that I had forgotten that there was an entire world of women who were being underserved.” She said she learned that, "It is our job as creators to represent more than our own experience and to

Amy Schumer just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Although the 33-year-old has been in the comedy world for a decade, she's actually pretty new to Hollywood. Having grown up in NYC, Amy began dabbling in stand-up comedy in 2004, with bits of her material featured on Comedy Central. She eventually nabbed her own TV show, Inside Amy Schumer, which always delivers laugh-out-loud moments and eerily relatable sketches. With her MTV hosting duties under her belt, her first starring movie role in Trainwreck hitting theaters this Summer, and parts on TV shows like Girls, we have a feeling she'll have more than a few new fans before the year closes out. So whether you're a newcomer or a seasoned pro, brush up on all the reasons Amy is just plain f*ckin' awesome. »
Funny ladies are taking over Hollywood! Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Ellie Kemper, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez and Kate McKinnon all stun on the June issue of The Hollywood Reporter -- where they are billed as six of TV's most provocative female comedians. The Emmy-contending actresses dish on everything from sex scenes to sexism in the issue, while revealing some of the cringeworthy things that have happened to them while working in Hollywood. "I stopped wearing the nude patch after the first season of 'Girls,'" the Dunham says of the HBO show's steamy scenes. "There's not one guy who works on that show who hasn't seen the inside of my vagina." What patch, you ask? "This patch — you glue it over your vagina. It gets sweaty and always falls off," Dunham elaborates. "My male co-stars, at the end of the day, don't care." "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star Ellie »

The nostalgia-inducing clip pays homage to the singer's child-star past and features funny reenactments of her role on The Golden Girls, as well as in the movies Hellville, The Wizard, and of course, Troop Beverly Hills (if you're a fan of the 1989 comedy, you'll get a big kick out of Vanessa Bayer as Phyllis Nefler and watching Jenny do "The Freddie").

Watch it below now. »

The pair joined fellow comedy actresses Amy Schumer, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Girls creator Lena Dunham and SNL's Kate McKinnon on a discussion panel for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue.
The group were asked what they thought of Chris Rock's essay in which he said that you can go to the movies for months and never see a black woman in a major role.
Rodriguez replied: "I think that also goes for Latinos as well."
Ross added: "There aren't many [roles in film]. That's why I say no to all the offers! (Laughs.)
"Working on a film is one job where you look at a casting breakdown and I'll think, 'That's me!' But she's not supposed to be black… But I go for them anyway. »
Lena Dunham. Tracee Ellis Ross. Amy Schumer. Gina Rodriguez. Kate McKinnon. Ellie Kemper. The Hollywood Reporter assembled a TV Justice League of wonderful comedy geniuses for their latest roundtable and Nothing was off limits in a wide-ranging (and glorious) conversation about vagina patches, sexism, the lack of women in late night TV, racism and more. The stars of Girls, black-ish, Inside Amy Schumer, Jane the Virgin, Saturday Night Live and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt could not be more different, yet they've all faced very similar challenges in Hollywood. Except when it comes to nudity. "I stopped wearing the nude patch after the first season of Girls. There's not one guy who works on that show who »
There may be a different studio and director behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but when Episode VII opens in cinemas this December one thing that will be very familiar is the music of John Williams. The composer, who has scored all six previous movies in the Star Wars saga, has been talking to Vanity Fair on his work on the hotly-anticipated film, revealing whether he intends to revisit his iconic themes from the Original Trilogy.
“There are some scenes where we do make reference to earlier thematic pieces. We haven’t done it yet, but we’re planning to do it. It’s something that I think will seem very natural and right in the moments for which we’ve chosen to do these kinds of quotes. There aren’t many of them, but there are a few that I think are important and will seem very much »

The first annual Mammoth Lakes Film Festival will make it’s debut this week. Set in the scenic and majestic setting of Mammoth Lakes, California, and will take place May 27-31, and will open with acclaimed Academy Award winning filmmaker Alex Gibney’s new documentary Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine.
The festival will present sixteen films in Narrative and Documentary Competition. I recently spoke with Artistic Director/Director Shira Dubrovner about choosing the films for the festival. She said:
“[The films] have a common thread. The one thing I did with this festival is give the full power to Paul Sbrizzi, who is a veteran at programming. He’s been programming for Slamdance for the past fifteen years, he programs for La film fest and many other film festivals in the country. I knew his artistic taste, and I know that he also has an eye for talent. He »

Shows like "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" are harmless and fun until you think about what must go on backstage. Then it's creepy and terrifying and even more fun. Lifetime knows this and exploits it on their new series "UnREAL," which documents the behind-the-scenes freakiness of a "Bachelor"-type series. Scathing, right? The show premieres June 1 on Lifetime. That's "Roswell" and "Girls" alum Shiri Appleby as the grim producer. Here's hoping she lives up to the legacy of my favorite character in that category. »
