11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hello to Glenn Close, the legendary thespian who just joined Twitter under the rightfully proud handle @TheGlennClose. We are awed and grateful for your presence, and not just because you did '80s hair better than any other human being. We really enjoyed what you did with that strange, underwritten role in "The Natural," we gagged on your cruel glamor in "Dangerous Liaisons," and we especially appreciated how you lit cable TV on fire with Patty Hewes' dictatorial grimace on "Damages." We regret that we will never see you in "Barnum." Thanks for always being kick-ass, and double-thanks for deigning to join Twitter. We will make it great for you! Here's who we recommend you follow, Glenn CloseMarcia Gay Harden Love these old stone walls in NY upstate.

First Unofficial Look At Michael Fassbender As Steve Jobs Arrives Online

29 January 2015 1:32 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just yesterday, Universal unveiled a flurry of details relating to Danny Boyle’s upcoming Steve Jobs film, including a comprehensive cast list that was topped off by X-Men Days of Future Past star Michael Fassbender as the Apple co-founder.

With filming now underway in San Francisco, eager fans have stalked the production to get a glance of the actors in character, and this has resulted in some blurry, out-of-focus images weaving their way online. Chief among them is a long distance shot of Fassbender as Jobs in what appears to be a small restaurant. You can check out the image below, but fair warning, you’ll be straining your peepers to get a clear view.

What we do know for certain is the Boyle’s visualization of Jobs’ life will take inspiration from Walter Isaacson’s biography, with film being structured around three major Apple product launches culminating in the »

2015: the year Netflix got serious

29 January 2015 3:03 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Between Marvel, sitcoms, and returning favourites, Netflix is producing more and more original content, here's what we can expect in 2015...

Not happy with being the undisputable king of subscription streaming TV and films, Netflix has spent the last few years finding its footing in creating original content. It's enjoyed some big hits with the likes of House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, but has also produced some less well-received properties such as Hemlock Grove and Arrested Development’s resurrection.

Marco Polo, the service's big budget drama following Mongolian leader Kublai Khan, was a sizeable risk for the network and one that didn't exactly lit the critical world alight (though a second season may well help with the teething problems).

Looking ahead, it seems that we’ll be seeing a new face of Netflix before the year is out. Netflix has more upcoming projects than ever before and »

At the start of the Civil War, a Virginia family — led by their West Point bred son, John Rhodes (played by Nathan Parsons, True Blood) — makes the controversial decision to defend the South while freeing all of their slaves.

Battling both his northern brethren and his best friend and brother-in-law, John leaves his three strong-willed sisters at home to run the plantation that is now without a free labor source. The choice to both protect the life they have always known while defending the moral high ground will pit the family against one another and test their strength, courage and love.

5 Ways Actors Over 50 Are Shaking Up Their Careers to Avoid the Johnny Depp Curse

26 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 51-year-old actor adds another flop to his already long streak, but other actors aren’t betting their careers on only box-office bankability

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs.

The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and »

26 January 2015 2:44 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Anyone on Chicago P.D. need a doctor? Because there’s one in the family!

Nick Gehlfuss (Shameless) will recur on the NBC drama as Jay Halstead’s brother Ryan, in addition to appearing on the potential Chicago Med spinoff, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Ryan is “a bit of a playboy and a successful doctor, but always off to the next good time,” executive producer Matt Olmstead says. “[He] never really sticks around when things get complicated. We’re finding him in a point in his life when he has to knuckle down and get real about being in Chicago.”

Alessandro Nivola On ‘Selma’, ‘Violent Year’ And Bradley Cooper: Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

26 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: It’s tempting to say that Alessandro Nivola lives a charmed life, and that might be true if he weren’t working so hard. He’s Zelig in plain sight: At this moment in time you can see him in Selma as Justice Department civil rights lawyer John Doar, who would become the lead prosecutor in the government’s case against the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And you can see him on the other side of the mirror, as a mobbed-up oil distributor and bete noir of Oscar Isaacs in A Most Violent Year. He played another nemesis, FBI agent Anthony Amado, on the trail of Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. And he’s still batting it around with Cooper, but now on Broadway, where he plays Frederick Treves, the humanistic doctor who rescues Cooper’s John Merrick ­­– Aka the Elephant Man – from life in a freak show booth. »

Olivia Munn Believes Celebrity Selfies Are Overrated

19 January 2015 3:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Olivia Munn thinks celebrity selfies are overrated.

The Newsroom star told Huff Post Live that the no-filter selfies are just a way for stars to say "I'm pretty," and the only reason for a selfie, is "to get more followers and likes."

Photos: The Best Celeb Selfies

Though actors may have tons of followers on Instagram, that doesn’t always translate into a movie's box office gross or television ratings.

"If followers were the number one thing to getting a career, all the Kardashians would be in every big movie of the year," she said.

News: Kim Kardashian Has a Giant Selfie Book

So what does Munn have on her Instagram? She shies away from anything personal, but has posted cute pics of her rescue puppy, Chance.

As for the celebrities who humble-brag and post about their personal lives, she speaks the hard truth, "You can't put up so much, and then ask »

Wild review

18 January 2015 10:25 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Reese Witherspoon snagged another Oscar nomination for Wild, the new film from the director of Dallas Buyers Club...

Certain films can be both uplifting and exhausting, bringing the feel-good factor not from sunny optimism, but from a hard-won victory over cynicism and adversity. The most comfortable Wild ever feels would be in that category, taking inspiration from Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild: From Lost To Found On The Pacific Crest Trail.

The book covers her 1,100 mile hike across America's Pacific Crest Trail, from the Mojave Desert to the border of Washington State, through extreme weather on both ends of the spectrum, without any prior backpacking experience.

Using an elliptical time structure, we first meet Cheryl (Reese Witherspoon) at the top of a mountain, some distance into her hike, suffering through a scene of cringe-making body horror that wouldn't be too out of place in an Evil Dead movie.

Olivia Munn Had Aaron Sorkin's Support in Refusing to "Take the Girly Route" With Her Newsroom Character

16 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Olivia Munn didn't always like directors' suggestions on how her character on The Newsroom should be, and when that was the case, she consulted the HBO show's creator and writer Aaron Sorkin. In a candid chat with HuffPost Live, the 34-year-old actress recalled a specific instance in which she was encouraged to "take the girly route" and "smile at smirk" at her onscreen boyfriend Thomas Sadoski. "I felt like, just because you're in a relationship doesn't mean you have to start being like, all giggly and girly," she said. She didn't feel this submissive approach went along with how her character had been portrayed "the other two seasons," she said, so »
