15-Year-Old Claire Danes On Getting Famous: 'I Just Want to Be a Sane Person'

20 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While we're waiting for Homeland's fourth season to wrap, let's rewind to a simpler time, back when Claire Danes was a smiling teenager ... on rollerblades?

Yep, in this 1994 footage from the Et archives, a 15-year-old Danes is seen blading on the Venice Beach boardwalk and musing about newfound fame being just around the corner.

"It's a little frightening, but I don't want to be afraid of it," Danes said at the time.

Keep in mind that at this point in her career, the actress wasn't actually all that famous; she had spent just a few short weeks in the public eye as Angela Chase, the teen lead of My So-Called Life. (Before the ABC family drama from the producers of thirtysomething came along, her TV experience included little more than a Law & Order guest spot, pretty much a prerequisite for every actor.)

"I do feel a little powerless right now," she told Et »

No Credible Intelligence To Support Movie Theater Threat, Says Homeland Security

16 December 2014 2:06 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Department of Homeland Security says it has no credible intelligence suggesting a threat this morning against movie theaters showing The Interview: “Dhs is aware of a threat made online targeting movie theaters in the United States. We are still analyzing the credibility of these statements, but at this time there is no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States,” the agency said.

This in response to the turn the Sony hacking scandal took today when 9/11 was invoked in a threatened attack on theaters showing the film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco:

We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.

Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made. »

Band Aid Challenge: The Affair's Dominic West Embraces Bob Geldof's New Charity Trend

16 December 2014 9:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, we just got over ice-bucket-challenging each other, so we'll see how this new thing takes off. Bob Geldof is attempting to launch a new charity trend amongst his celebrity friends. The challenge is pretty simple, actually: You sing Bono's line from the Band Aid 30 re-release of "Do They Know It's Christmas": "Well tonight we're reaching out and touching you." (You also donate money to Band Aid, naturally.) Geldof nominated The Affair (and yes, The Wire) actor Dominic West, Homeland's Damian Lewis, and Richard E. Grant (known variously from Doctor Who, Withnail & I and Luther). West, for his part, »

2014 was a strong year for television, both at home and abroad, but now is the time to narrow down our favourites to only the choicest cuts.

Digital Spy's best TV shows of the year 2014: 25-21

20. House of Cards

It may not have quite hit the highs of the first season - perhaps lacking a little of the heart provided by Corey Stoll's tragic Peter Russo last year - but House of Cards was still a captivating watch in 2014. Much has been made of the Netflix 'binge-watch' culture, but not every show could hold the viewer's attention across 13 straight episodes - this is one.

Its chief selling point remains Kevin Spacey's turn as the malevolent, magnificent Francis 'Frank' Underwood - by turns »

‘Homeland’ Director Clark Johnson on Crowd Scenes, Emotional Roller Coasters and a James Rebhorn Tribute

15 December 2014 4:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The mob scene at the end of “Homeland’s” second-to-last episode of the season was hard to pull off with authenticity and difficult to shoot. And for the most part, they winged it. So says director Clark Johnson, who delivered his fifth “Homeland” seg of the series’ run to date with “Krieg Nicht Lieb.”

Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen the Dec. 14 episode of “Homeland.”

Johnson described the dueling protests that were pivotal to the plot of the episodes as “Mets fans meet Yankees fans as they converge for a subway World Series.”

The goal was to depict a sense of chaos in the street as opposing factions meet, each chanting and carrying protest signs. In fact there was some anarchy behind the camera on location in Cape Town, South Africa, as Johnson and producers decided to let the extras loose and hope they could capture what they needed, »

Homeland, Ep. 4.11, “Krieg Nicht Lieb” is a twisty mess

15 December 2014 11:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Homeland, Season 4, Episode 11, “Krieg Nicht Lieb”

Written by Alexander Cary & Chip Johannessen

Directed by Clark Johnson

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on Showtime

I don’t think we can ever win with Homeland, and we need to accept that. There will always be a frustrating polarity present, because it has always been there and it seems content to stay there. The series gives in to its best and worst tendencies on a weekly basis, thrilling in one scene with refreshing ease and then backpedalling in the next. It is a careful mediation on modern war, but it is also the 24-esque twisty action show. Sometimes, that binary opposition is entertaining and even beneficial, but other times—like this episode—it just feels disappointing.

“Krieg Nicht Lieb” translates, roughly, to “War Not Love”, which is a fairly appropriate title. Most of the episode is spent watching Carrie trying to find then reign in Quinn, »

Homeland Review: “Krieg Nicht Lieb” (Season 4, Episode 11)

15 December 2014 8:10 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Homeland remains a shadow of the intriguing, thought-provoking television series it used to be. However, its nimble plot turns, crackling suspense and engaging performances are of a caliber so high that any series on television would pant to keep up with all of its twisty maneuvers. Let’s face it: the 24 comparisons this fourth season has received should no longer be a put-down.

It was bizarre to see Aayan’s face appear in the “Previously On” segment this week. It has only been a month since Haqqani executed him in front of hovering U.S. drones, yet the series has delivered so much numbing excitement and bravura plot developments since that one could believe Aayan was a relic from a previous season. However, his face becomes quite pertinent to “Krieg Nicht Lieb,” an episode whose title translates literally to “War, not love.”

The ‘war’ of the title seems to be the mindset of Peter Quinn, »

‘Homeland’ Recap: The Agony of Defeat in ‘Krieg Nicht Lieb’

14 December 2014 10:08 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The agony of defeat permeates the penultimate episode of “Homeland’s” fourth season.

Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen “Homeland” episode 11, “Krieg Nicht Lieb.”

In another very tense installment of the Fall of Islamabad, it’s hard to decide what was more heartbreaking: Hearing Carrie Mathison say the words “We lost” or watching her try to stroke her baby daughter’s cheek through her computer screen.

“Krieg Nicht Lieb” (which loosely translates to “war not love”) was a fast-moving mix of razor-sharp suspense and softer emotional moments, directed by Clark Johnson from a script by exec producers Chip Johannessen and Alexander Cary that had the briefest bits of black comedy at perfect moments. Even rogue commando assassins aren’t immune from body odor after days of feverish plotting.

Nina Hoss has a great guest shot as Quinn’s German lover from the not-so-distant past. More than facilitating »

Review: 'Homeland' - 'Krieg Nicht Lieb'

14 December 2014 7:53 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Homeland" coming up just as soon as we initiate the failure protocol...   This season of "Homeland" has been all over the map in terms of quality, tone and character motivation that it's almost as if the show as being written by Carrie Mathison herself. Some weeks, it's an embarrassing shadow of its former self; in others, it's as gripping and devastating as it's ever been. Sometimes, it's the Crazy Carrie Hour; at others, it's just a taut spy thriller with a heroine who doesn't think quite like her colleagues. One week, Quinn is in love with Carrie and desperate to get out of the Agency before one more innocent person dies by his hand; another, he's gone full Jack Bauer and will kill as many people as is necessary to get Haqqani.   As the penultimate chapter of season 4, "Krieg Nicht Lieb" tried to tie all »

The X Factor 2014 final: Ben Haenow wins – as it happened

Ben Haenow and Fleur East battled it out to become X Factor champion 2014, but who would win? Stuart Heritage was there for the final

9.59pm GMT

It’s all over! X Factor 2014 has reached its glorious conclusion. Ladies and gentlemen, we have discovered a new star. But enough about Stevi Ritchie, because Ben probably deserves some of your praise too.

Hand on heart, I can’t thank any of you enough for reading and commenting along in these liveblogs. This has been one of my favourite years to liveblog X Factor, and that’s largely down to how game and hilarious (and drunk) you’ve been throughout. Honestly, I couldn’t have done this without you. I have no idea what I’ll liveblog next (please god don’t let it be Stars in their Eyes), but I hope you can join me then too. Now that we’re all such good friends, »

The ‘24’ Effect: How ‘Liberal Hollywood’ Carried Water For Torture

14 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bashing “liberal Hollywood” and out-of-touch celebrities has become a favorite sport among conservatives. But those seeking to defend the Bush administration in light of the recent Torture Report — and that’s mostly conservatives — could hardly have had a better ally than the images of torture in TV and movies, particularly in the face of “ticking-bomb scenarios.”

Fox’s “24,” naturally comes to mind, and the movie “Zero Dark Thirty,” which was criticized for its depiction of torture as a likely asset in locating Osama Bin Laden. Surprisingly, director Kathryn Bigelow seemed tongue-tied when Jon Stewart benignly asked her about the film during a recent appearance promoting another project in the wake of  the Torture Report’s conclusions.

The practice has been employed in other series as well – such as “Sons of Anarchy,” “Scandal” and “Homeland” – and countless movies, with the bad guys using it (see various Quentin Tarantino films) as well as the ostensible good guys. »

In Defence Of: Firefly's cancellation

13 December 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Back in December 2002 a million voices cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced by the Fox network. It probably sounded a bit like the noise you made when you read the title of this feature.

Defending the decision to cancel Joss Whedon's beloved sci-fi show after just 14 episodes might seem like geek treason, but whilst Fox's intentions were borderline criminal, the results were nothing short of revolutionary.

First things first: Firefly is one of the greatest sci-fi shows of all time. The closest thing to Star Wars since 1983, and arguably the best thing Joss Whedon has ever made, it's the holy grail of space-western comedy-dramas. In the 12 years since it was canned, the short-lived series has become a cult phenomenon for good reason. In 2007, the box set was even rocketed up to the International Space Station's intergalactic DVD library (which, to be fair, also includes 50 First Dates »

30 Best TV Series of 2014

12 December 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. The Leftovers

There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.

The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »

Best TV of 2014: No 8 – Peaky Blinders

12 December 2014 2:02 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This story of Birmingham gangsters avoided the curse of the second series with new characters, torrid family melodrama and a sense of its own greatness

As the makers of Homeland, The Fall, The Americans and Utopia discovered, getting a second run can be a poisoned chalice. All of the above struggled to regain their narrative footing in series two, despite a prevailing critical and commercial wind. Peaky Blinders utterly bucked that trend this year, with panache, cheek and chutzpah to spare, making a further mockery of Bafta’s baffling snub for series one, comically referenced by star Sam Neill on awards night in May (“I’m actually crying inside underneath this bluff exterior”).

Steven Knight’s grandiose mythologisation of the post-first world war gangster class in Birmingham ran on BBC2 for six larger-than-life episodes in the autumn term of 2013. To quote Spinal Tap’s manager, its audience became more selective, »
