Katherine Waterston Lands Lead in Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs Film

23 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Casting continues on director Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs movie.  Michael Fassbender is set to play the Apple innovator in the Aaron Sorkin-scripted biopic, with Seth Rogen onboard as Steve Wozniak and Michael Stuhlbarg poised to fill the role of Andy Hertzfeld, the computer scientist and inventor who was part of the original Apple development team.  A few days ago we learned that Kate Winslet had entered negotiations to join the film, and now word comes that Inherent Vice standout Katherine Waterston has landed the lead role of Chrisaan, the mother of Jobs’ first child.  More after the jump. Aaron Sorkin’s script for the untitled Steve Jobs movie is a unique take on the biopic genre in that it is comprised of only three scenes, each set around the launch of three different Apple products: the Mac, the NeXT, and the iPod.  Deadline reports that Waterson will be »

Inherent Vice Star Katherine Waterston Lands Key Role In Steve Jobs Movie

23 December 2014 2:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Steve Jobs movie, which recently shifted from Sony Pictures to Universal Pictures, is in the final stages of locking down its leading cast. The as-yet untitled picture is set to lens early next year, with Danny Boyle directing from a script penned by Aaron Sorkin. To ensure the shooting schedule stays on track, the casting process is moving forward with the addition of Inherent Vice star, Katherine Waterston.

As reported by Deadline, the actress will be commandeering the key role of Jobs’ long-term girlfriend, Chrisann. In the 2013 Ashton Kutcher-led Jobs movie, the small role was played by Ahna O’Reilly. Something to bear in mind however; this isn’t the same part offered to – and turned down by – Natalie Portman. That character, Apple’s head of marketing Joanna Hoffman, is still up for grabs, with Kate Winslet now in consideration for the part.

'Inherent Vice' Star Katherine Waterston Lands Role in 'Jobs' Biopic

23 December 2014 1:17 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The developing Steve Jobs biopic that moved from Sony Pictures to Universal Pictures is still trying to finalize a cast before going in front of cameras for director Danny Boyle. Michael Fassbender is playing Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen will be his right hand man Steve Wozniak, and now Deadline reports Inherent Vice star Katherine Waterston has landed a pivotal female role as Chrisann, the first wife of Steve Jobs. This isn't the same role that Natalie Portman passed on, but Kate Winslet has been mentioned to be in the running to take the role, though a deal hasn't been solidified. This is shaping up to be a great cast. Read on! Winslet's role would be that of Joanna Hoffman, head of marketing for the Mac team. Previously said to be circling a role is screenwriter Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" star Jeff Daniels as John Sculley was the CEO of Apple. »

Winslet In Talks To Join Fassbender in Boyle's 'Jobs'

22 December 2014 7:42 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

After sputtering its way through development hell, the Aaron Sorkin-penned film, Jobs, continues to show signs of forward momentum. Despite directors and actors like David Fincher and Christian Bale walking away from it, the film lives. Even Sony dropping the film from its slate didn't kill this thing. Now with a new lease on life over at Universal pictures, with Danny Boyle at the helm, and with Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen set to star in it, comes news of the film potentially finding its female lead. Last month, it was Natalie Portman who was said to be in talks for the part, but those talks fizzled. 

According to Variety, the new actress that's being pursued is Kate Winslet. This would be another high-profile "get" for the production, as Winslet has been nominated for 6 Academy Awards- with a win for Best Actress for her work in The Reader. It's »

10 Greatest TV Shows Of 2014

19 December 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

2014 saw the current ‘Golden Age Of Television’ continue unabated, with a number of truly wonderful new shows making their bows throughout the year. Television is now the premier medium for gifted writers to tell long-form stories and this year saw the beginnings of quite a few that will be around for many years to come, if there’s any justice at least.

As well as these quality newcomers, audiences were also treated to brilliant seasons of returning favourites, and the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video continued to cement their reputations as destinations for many viewers to binge watch entire seasons of the best shows, as well as putting out their own incredibly popular shows.

In 2014, the distinction between movie talent and TV talent continued to disappear, with many established film stars taking on their own shows, spurred on by the benefits of shorter seasons on cable »

Movie Review – Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

19 December 2014 12:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dumb and Dumber To, 2014

Directed by The Farrelly Brothers

Starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Kathleen Turner

Synopsis:

20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.

Fans of Dumb and Dumber have been clamouring for a sequel for a long time. The original is thought to be not just one of the funniest comedies of the decade, but possibly of all-time. It was a box office smash and came out at a time when anything Jim Carrey touched turned to gold, but those times have changed. Carrey hasn’t released a decent comedy since Bruce Almighty and his co-star Jeff Daniels has moved on to serious dramas and impressive performances in TV shows like The Newsroom. Twenty years is a long time.

In short, Dumb and Dumber To is embarrassing. »

Aaron Sorkin Still In Bed With John Edwards Exposé ‘The Politician’

18 December 2014 3:11 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Aaron Sorkin is reconfirming his dedication to chronicling the rise and scandalous fall of a presidential candidate. The Newsroom and West Wing creator, one of Hollywood’s most outspoken voices in the recent Sony hacking attack, has extended his option on Nyt bestseller The Politician, Andrew Young’s explosive 2010 tell-all about the adultery scandal that ended former North Carolina Senator John Edwards’ 2008 Democratic Presidential campaign.

Young exposed shocking details of the married Edwards’ secret affair with campaign staffer Rielle Hunter that yielded an illegitimate child. The Politician revealed how Young, a volunteer in Edwards’ 1998 Senate run who became his trusted right hand man, was asked to help cover up Edwards’ adultery, fake paternity test results, and claim the child as his own for the Presidential hopeful.

The lid was blown when a tabloid newspaper uncovered the affair, which blindsided Edwards’ cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth and led to the implosion of Edwards’ presidential run. »

The Newsroom: Season Three Ratings

16 December 2014 4:03 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though HBO would likely like a fourth season of The Newsroom, the series is ending with a shortened third season (interviews indicate that Aaron Sorkin made the decision to make this the final season). Will it go out with great ratings or will it fizzle? We shall see.

The Newsroom follows the behind-the-scenes world at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (Acn) channel. The cast includes Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn, and Sam Waterston.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Final season averages: 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.34 million total viewers.

‘Voice’ Finale Dips But NBC Still Leads Monday

16 December 2014 9:25 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first half of the winter finale for NBC’s “The Voice” was down slightly from last year’s numbers but still strong enough to allow NBC to dominate the Monday competition.

According to preliminary Nielsens, “Voice” garnered 2.9 rating/9 share in the adults 18-49 demographic and 12.2 million viewers from 8-10 p.m. That’s down a few ticks from the comparable night last year (3.3/9, 12.7 mil) although NBC is projecting that the show will reach its year-ago mark in the live-plus-3 ratings.

At 10 p.m., “State of Affairs” (1.6/5, 6.5 mil) was in line with its performance of the past two weeks, and NBC was quick to note that the show has been adding significant numbers in the L3 and L7 measures.

CBS put up the only real competition of the night with 8 p.m. comedy “2 Broke Girls” (2.1/7, 7.8 mil) delivering the second-highest demo number of the night.

Seth Rogen Wishes North Koreans Could See ‘The Interview’

16 December 2014 6:16 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In the wake of the massive hack of Sony as the studio prepares to open its controversial comedy The Interview, star and co-writer Seth Rogen said he’s wondering how much he should “try to insert something that is a little bit above garbage” into his movies.

This in response to a question from George Stephanopoulos as to whether he, like the talk show producer he plays in the movie, is thinking about doing something “more serious” in the wake of the controversy that’s erupted over The Interview.

A group calling itself Guardians of Peace has claimed responsibility for the hack, which it says is in retaliation for Rogen’s movie about a talk show host (James Franco) and his producer who are asked by the CIA to assassinate North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un. The group claims to have stolen 100 terabytes of data from Sony servers (10 terabytes can »

The Newsroom Season 3 Episode 4: ‘Contempt’ Review

15 December 2014 3:58 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Anthony Hemingway

Writers: Aaron SorkinDeborah SchoenemanJohn Musero

Synopsis: As Will refuses to reveal the source of the stolen government documents, despite the threat of legal action, Sloan and Mac search for a buyer for Acn.

Although The Newsroom has swerved more specific news stories and gradually veered over into the lives of the resourceful ensemble cast, it has continued to resonate with me as a fine piece of television that continues to entertain and inform, in various different ways. ‘Contempt’ is a curious five-day episode which carries on from where we left off with Will (Jeff Daniels) being handed a subpoena for withholding the government source of the classified information Acn have been given. It runs us around a course of Will not giving that information, which he says he has, up to the Supreme Court. Of course, whatever happens with the court side of affairs, our »
