Helen Mirren Targets Trumbo Role Opposite Bryan Cranston

14 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

It was shortly before the series finale of "Breaking Bad" last year that word broke of Bryan Cranston signing on to headline Trumbo , a biopic of blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo that Jay Roach ( The Campaign , Game Change ) will direct. Now, Variety reports that Helen Mirren is eyeing a role opposite Cranston as Trumbo's wife, Cleo. Trumbo published his first novel, "Eclipse," in 1935 with his first screenplay, director Louis King's Road Gang , hitting the big screen the following year. With more than a dozen subsequent credits to his name, Trumbo was the highest paid screenwriter of his day when he was brought before Senator Joseph McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee. Refusing to testify, Trumbo was blacklisted, but continued to write »

A guide to avoiding Piers Morgan in modern motion pictures

1 April 2014 3:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Simon Brew 2 Apr 2014 - 06:05

Unfortunately, Piers Morgan has started popping up in a few movies now. Fortunately, we've figured out how you can avoid seeing him

For some reason, a growing number of American movies appear to be drafting in Piers Morgan to appear in small roles as a news reader/interviewer/general irritant. For those of us who really like movies, Morgan’s presence in them has not yet been a welcome one, and we’ve now heard that he’s recorded a scene or two for the upcoming Entourage film.

This article then is intended as a work of public service, and we’ll keep it up to date with Morgan’s appearances in film, should people continue to indulge him. So: here are the films to date that Morgan has appeared in, and the specific moments you need to skip if you want your viewing experience to be Morgan-free. »

The Emmy Race Just Got Crazier

26 March 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When FX submitted American Horror Story into the Emmy race as a miniseries two years ago, some accused the network of trying to game the system. FX argued that the show was an anthology, with each season telling a different story with a rotating cast, but critics said the real motivation was simple: Ahs had a better shot of winning if it didn’t have to go up against shows like Mad Men and Homeland. (The show wound up getting tons of nominations but ultimately beat out by HBO’s Game Change in 2012 and Behind the Candelabra in 2013 for the top prize.) Still, yesterday’s news that True Detective, an anthology like Ahs, would compete as a drama series took many by surprise. Had Ahs not set a precedent?Hollywood has barely caught its breath following a crazy-competitive Oscar season, and now it looks like TV will be giving it »

Millennial-Targeting Pivot Buys Peabody Awards Broadcast Rights

17 March 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

For the first time in a decade, the Peabody Awards has a TV home. Pivot, Participant Media’s TV network targeting millennials, has signed a deal to telecast the University of Georgia’s George Foster Peabody Awards through 2016, which marks the Peabody’s 75th anniversary. Broadcasting the awards, which honor excellence in TV, radio and webcasting, is challenging since winners traditionally are announced well in advance of the trophy ceremony. This year’s winners, for instance, will be announced April 2, but the medallions will be dispensed May 19 at a luncheon ceremony at New York City’s Waldorf Astoria. The 2014 Peabody Awards special, the two parties announced, will “blend highlights from the presentation ceremony with exclusive interviews with featured award winners. A date for that telecast was not announced. The Peabody Awards, administered by Uga’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications,  don’t have the kind of categories we »

Julianne Moore on Hunger Games Mockingjay: "We have huge responsibility"

26 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Julianne Moore has admitted that her role as President Alma Coin in the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay comes with a "huge responsibility to the book".

"There are some things that have been written that the fans are adamant be there," Moore told Digital Spy. "We're taking that responsibility very seriously."

The actress, currently starring alongside Liam Neeson in airborne thriller Non-Stop, also felt that her experience playing Us politician Sarah Palin in Game Change didn't influence her portrayal of Mockingjay's ruthless President.

"They don't have a whole lot to do with one another," she said.

"When you're playing a real person, all your research is really about how that person speaks and moves and is physically."

Non-Stop is released on February 28

21 February 2014 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may have been hard out there when Terrence Howard was a pimp, but the actor is having an easy time finding work these days. He had a busy 2013, appearing in no fewer than six films, including The Best Man Holiday and Prisoners. However, it was Howard’s brief stint in the all-star cast for Lee DanielsThe Butler that brought him the biggest audience and the connection to what may be a major role on the small screen.

The actor is now set to star in a pilot of the hip hop drama Empire for Fox, which Lee Daniels will direct. Daniels will also co-write the pilot with his Butler screenwriter Danny Strong. On Empire, Howard will play Lucious Lyon, a rap record company executive.

Danny Strong on Playing Elijah’s Mean Boyfriend on Girls, Pizza Parties With the Cast, and Empire

20 February 2014 11:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Elijah returned to Girls this past weekend, and he wasn't alone. His condescending prick of a boyfriend, Pal, was there with him. Playing the part was Danny Strong, who — when he's not writing scripts like Game Change, Lee Daniels' The Butler, and Mockingjay — is one of TV's most versatile character actors. (You know him from Buffy, Mad Men, and Justified, to name but a few shows.) We spoke to Strong about drawing on his own bad relationships to play Pal, pizza parties with the Girls cast, and his next collaboration with Daniels, the hip-hop-mogul drama Empire. (He couldn't talk Mockingjay; he's under a "strict gag order.")Are you friends with Lena? Was that your in? I had met [producer] Jenni Konner at the Golden Globes the same year Girls won, and we exchanged info and got dinner, and she brought Lena. She asked me if I wanted to be on »

HBO Orders Tim Robbins And Jack Black To The Brink

12 February 2014 4:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having commissioned the pilot episode of The Brink – a half-hour dark political comedy – last year, HBO has now ordered the show to series, with Tim Robbins and Jack Black heading the cast.

The show centres around the main players caught in a geo-political crisis. Tim Robbins plays the Us Secretary of State, Walter Hollander, who has little patience for war-mongers, while Jack Black plays Alex Coppins – a Foreign Service Officer dealing with the crisis in the field. A third main role – that of a Navy fighter pilot – has yet to be cast, although the wider cast list includes Aasif Mandvi and Meera Syal. The pilot was written by brothers Roberto and Kim Benabib – Roberto having previously worked on Ally McBeal and Weeds. Both will also serve as executive producers, alongside stars Black and Robbins, Jerry Weintraub (Behind The Candelabra) and Jay Roach (The Austin Powers franchise, The Campaign), who also directed the pilot. »

HBO’s Tim Robbins & Jack Black Comedy Series Gets Full Season Order

11 February 2014 5:25 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Just three months after granting a pilot order to the Tim Robbins and Jack Black comedy The Brink, HBO has already decided to pick-up the series for a full first season.

Directed by Jay Roach (the Austin Powers franchise, Meet the Parents, HBO’s own Game Change), The Brink is described as a pitch black comedy with an epic scope. The plot focuses on a major geopolitical crisis, and the effects that crisis has on the lives of three very different men.

Oscar-winner Tim Robbins co-stars as Walter Hollander, the current U.S. Secretary of State, and a man with a decidedly low tolerance for the political gamesmanship that he constantly encounters ...

19 Days Til Oscar (Feat. Julianne Moore)

11 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hollywood's High Holy Night is less than three weeks away now. Today also happens to be the 50th birthday of one Sarah Palin but rather than wish one of the worst people alive a Happy Birthday, here's a random 'What If?' question for your discussion pleasure...

Q: Julianne has been nominated for four Oscars (Boogie Nights, The End of the Affair, The Hours, Far From Heaven), famously losing all of them. If her Sarah Palin movie "Game Change" --  which won her the Globe, SAG, and Emmy --  had been a feature film, would she be 5/0 with Oscar or a winner? How would she have affected that Oscar race? 

Honestly you could ask the same question of "Behind the Candelabra" in this Oscar race in both the Lead and Supporting Actor categories, courtesy of biopic love and category fraud. 

P.S. Here are Julianne's Oscar looks for beauteous fun. »
