Zadan and Meron Skip Oscars But Land 'The Wiz' Live on NBC

30 March 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Stage-to-screen impresarios Zadan and Meron are getting back to what they know and love: live musical productions. The producing duo behind the 2015 Oscars, whose ratings sank and whose host Neil Patrick Harris fell flat after two successful years, will be mounting "The Wiz," the soul music re-telling of "The Wizard of Oz." The production will take center stage on NBC December 3, 2015. This is not Zadan and Meron's first foray into live song-and-dance spectacles on NBC. "The Wiz" will be their third consecutive special after 2013's "The Sound of Music Live!" starring Carrie Underwood, who had the pipes to carry Maria von Trapp. And in 2014, Zadan and Meron drummed up "Peter Pan Live!," a magnificent failure starring Allison Williams who, between "Pan" and her simpering dullard Marnie on HBO's "Girls," seems to be grooming for more singing roles.

Adam Driver: ‘Lots of things have been said about my face’

29 March 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As Lena Dunham’s love interest in Girls, actor Adam Driver represents a new kind of male. Now starring with Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach’s new film, here the ex-marine discusses sex scenes, the internet and his theatre group for troops

Adam Driver, 31, is the Emmy-nominated star from the HBO series Girls, in which he plays Hannah Horvath’s (Lena Dunham) on-off love interest Adam Sackler. As Sackler, Driver combines memorable looks (6ft 3in frame, raven hair, a face like human origami), with an intensity that seems part apocalyptic internalised rage, part brittle vulnerability, part no-nonsense brio, leading many to cite him as a new kind of modern screen male.

Driver was raised in Mishawaka, Indiana, by a paralegal mother and Baptist minister stepfather. After 9/11, he joined the Us marines, but before being deployed to Iraq he broke his sternum during an exercise and was medically discharged. Driver has »

Lena Dunham, Anti-Semite? That Dog Don’t Hunt

28 March 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This coming week marks the beginning of Passover, a Jewish holiday commemorating my people’s enslavement at the hands of the ancient Egyptians.

Many millennia later, sadly, the Jews aren’t doing that much better today. Anti-Semitism is raging everywhere from U.S. college campuses to the streets of France.

And yet perhaps the greatest threat yet to confront the Jews emerged this week, and from within their own ranks: Lena Dunham.

The “Girls” creator and star drew the condemnation of the Anti-Defamation League and countless Twitterati for her latest work, a humor column for the New Yorker titled “Dog or Jewish Boyfriend? A Quiz.” The piece is exactly what the title suggests: a list of statements that could easily apply to one or the other.

Among the attributes Dunham ticks off: “He doesn’t tip,” “he has hair all over his body, like most males who share his background, »

Outrage Watch: 'Get Hard' backlash is getting louder by the day

27 March 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 27, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: "Get Hard" is getting slammed. The Will Ferrell-Kevin Hart prison preparedness comedy has been dogged by controversy since its SXSW premiere, when an audience member asked Hart, Ferrell and director Etan Cohen, "Were you nervous -- and/or how nervous were you -- presenting this in front of a live audience being completely, absolutely and unapologetically ... racist and hysterical at the same time?" during an audience Q&A. Not only that, but it's been deemed homophobic by a number of critics and journalists, and our own Drew McWeeny had this to say in his review: "I just couldn't bring myself to laugh at something that will reinforce hatred, that plays into this idea that gay sex is somehow inherently more disgusting than regular sex. »

Watch: 'Girls' Parody Ditches Feminism for Michael Bay-Style Explosions

25 March 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Review: 'Girls' Season 4, Episode 10 'Home Birth: Pushing Through' Have you ever wondered what "Girls," Lena Dunham's lightning rod of a dramedy, would be like if it didn't have all that pesky feminism and introspection and instead was about bikinis and explosions? Well, you probably have a lot of time on your hands but congratulations, your weird wish has now been granted with a weird video. The HBO show got the Michael Bay treatment with this two minute clip, mashing up the hallmarks of Bay's universally cherished films with the general premise of Dunham's also-not-controversial-at-all series. The result is... pretty close to what you might imagine, with a Sexy Oil Rig Worker's Daughter costume thrown in for good measure, because of course. Check out the video above.  Read More: Watch: 'Girls' Season 4 Trailer Ignores the Haters, Stays True to Its Brooklyn Self »

Leighton Meester Is Still "Best Friends" With "Gossip Girl" Costar Zuzanna Szadkowski

25 March 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Adam Brody just revealed a big bombshell that is making "Gossip Girl" fanatics jump for joy! In a new podcast for The Hollywood Reporter, the actor talked about working with his "Growing Up and Other Lies" costar Zuzanna Szadkowski, who played Dorota Kishlovsky on "Gossip Girl" with his wife, Leighton Meester. "She’s one of my wife’s best friends," Brody said of his costar. "I didn’t know her at the time. I wasn’t with my wife [when we filmed], and so we hardly talked then." On the hit teen series, Leighton's character Blair Waldorf was spotted all over the Upper Eastside with Dorota, her live-in maid and main confidant. So, this means, the pair is actually just as close as they were on-screen! In fact, Szadkowski, 36, recently showed her support for her on-and-off screen Bff at the opening night of Meester's play of "Of Mice and Men" on Broadway. The »

How 'Girls' Became the Most Frustrating Show on Television

25 March 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In an interview with "Fresh Air" host Terry Gross last September, timed to coincide with the publication of her book, "Not That Kind of Girl," Lena Dunham offered a surprising insight into the sense of stasis that has plagued "Girls" since I reviewed it, rather lovingly, at the end of season one: "[T]he span of time that we've covered [in] the show is much shorter than the span of time in which I've been doing the show. So [Hannah]'s grown less, both chronologically and emotionally, than I have since we started. She's only had one birthday since we began." "Girls," a series so of-the-moment that it functions as both the target and the purveyor of fatuous "Millennial" stereotypes, has nevertheless always appeared to take place out of time -- even at its most quotidian, it unspools according to the dreamlike rhythms of "One Man's Trash," where Hannah (Dunham) spends the weekend »

Sarah Jessica Parker turns 50: 6 best roles from Sex and the City star

25 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It is a momentous day for Sex and the City fans around the world as Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her 50th birthday. While the role of Carrie Bradshaw made Sarah a fashion icon and a superstar, she has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows over four decades. Parker began her career as a child star on the stage in Annie, and has gone on to become an enduring fixture in pop culture.

Her movie career was launched with supporting roles in '80s teen comedies Footloose and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but soon she grew into a leading lady with memorable roles in a string of early 1990s comedies. Parker might be best known for romantic comedies these days, but over the last 30 years she's impressed critics in roles as diverse a mystical witch, an egotistical talkshow host and the embodiment of a single woman of the 2000s. »

Live action Star Wars TV series rumoured to be in development

25 March 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If six new Star Wars films were not enough to fill your boots in a galaxy far, far away – we have a hot new rumour for you today!

According to Cinelinx (via /Film), Disney are developing a live action Star Wars TV show that will use the same constructed sets at Pinewood Studios in London as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The sites also report that the show will act as a bridging gap between the three new movies, with the show shooting in the interim between the films using the soundstage.

This is of course not the first time we’ve heard of a Star Wars themed TV show. Prior to George Lucas selling the franchise to Disney, he was planning a live action show of his own, which never got out of development stage.

As always, this is just a rumour for now. But given how much »

Susan Sarandon Wants to See a Woman on the $20 Bill—Who Do You Think It Should Be?

24 March 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who run the world? Girls (just ask Beyoncé)! So why isn't there a single woman on any piece of American money? Susan Sarandon and fellow gender equality advocates not only want to know the answer to this, but they've proposed a solution: Women on 20s, a campaign determined to get one of 15 distinguished women to replace U.S. President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill by 2020, the 100-year anniversary of the passage of the Constitutional amendment granting women the legal right to vote. Sarandon helped propel the movement Tuesday when she tweeted a photo of herself holding cash. "I want to see a woman on the $20 bill," she wrote. "Post your own photo & join me by voting at »

‘Girls’ Finale Ratings Fall Hard From 2014 In Demo

There was a new job in Japan, a solo showcase, potential new love and a new baby as the Lena Dunham-created Girls ended its fourth season on Sunday. Maybe it was that baby, but there were a few more total viewership eyeballs this year as 687,000 watched the 9 Pm episode but a lot less in the adults 18-49 demographic. Among total viewers, the last show of HBO’s 10-episode season is pretty steady with the Season 3 finale of March 23 last year at 10 Pm, which was watched by… »

Ben Stiller on ‘Zoolander 2,’ Brooklyn Hipsters and His Noah Baumbach Comedy

24 March 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Noah Baumbach comedy “While We’re Young” premiered at New York’s Paris Theatre on Monday night with stars Ben Stiller and Amanda Seyfried. The indie, which was picked up by A24 out of Toronto, follows a struggling documentary filmmaker (Stiller) who befriends two younger Brooklyn hipsters (Adam Driver and Seyfried). Naomi Watts, who didn’t attend the premiere, plays Stiller’s wife.

The film shot in New York last year, both in Upstate and throughout Brooklyn (including Williamsburg and Greenpoint). “I hadn’t spent a lot of time in Brooklyn,” Stiller said. “I’m from the Upper West Side. I remember going to Brooklyn as a kid, and the neighborhoods are always very exotic to me and so different.” Stiller said he didn’t absorb much about hipster culture during the shoot. “I feel like it’s all ridiculous the way people are categorizing it,” said Stiller. “People are doing their thing, »

Ben Stiller talks Zoolander 2

24 March 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whilst promoting his new film While We’re Young, Ben Stiller has spoken about the long-awaited comedy sequel Zoolander 2, which has begun pre-production in Rome and Paris in recent weeks. Speaking to ComingSoon, Stiller shed some light on the project and why it has taken so long to come to the screen after many false starts:

 

Zoolander, which was released in 2001, only managed a $60 million gross back then, but has developed an Anchorman-like cult following since, leading many fans to call for a sequel. And the wait is almost over, with Owen Wilson and Christine Taylor also returning for the sequel, and Will Ferrell reportedly set to join them.

While We’re Young, directed by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha), stars Stiller, Naomi Watts (Birdman), Adam Driver (Girls) and Amanda Seyfried (Ted 2), and is released in the Us on Friday, and UK on April 3rd.

Girls season four – when Lena Dunham's show came of age

24 March 2015 5:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Girls has always known who its characters are – but it’s only as they have grown up and faced the realities of adulthood that they have truly come into their own

When Girls first arrived in 2012, on a wave of hype, it was dismissed by some on the grounds that the characters were selfish, pampered airheads who deserved to die. But on Monday night, as season four of the HBO dramedy came to a close on Sky Atlantic in the UK, something happened that would have horrified those season-one fledglings: they grew up. As a result, this fourth season of Girls was its best yet. The bad relationships and poor decisions left more at stake, as the show acutely documented that screech into adulthood that you think has happened at the end of your teens, until it happens again, but harder, in the middle of your twenties.
