Pepper Potts to Return in Spider-Man: Homecoming?

28 March 2017 5:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer that dropped this morning, which offered a better look at the mentor/mentee relationship between young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Iron Man himself, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). We have also known for quite some time that Robert Downey Jr. will be joined by his first Iron Man director and actor Jon Favreau, reprising his role as Tony's bodyguard/driver Happy Hogan, who hasn't been seen on the big screen since 2013's Iron Man 3. Today we have word that Spider-Man: Homecoming will bring back another character we haven't seen since Iron Man 3, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts.

While this report hasn't been confirmed, Lainey Gossip reports that, since Gwyneth Paltrow's contract with Marvel has expired, Sony Pictures had to pay the actress, which has reportedly become a "problem" for the studio, with the studio experiencing some »

The Best TV Guest Stars Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 March 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who has been the best guest star on a scripted show?

Tim Surette (@timsurette), TV.com

Wayne Brady showing up in body armor and riding a horse on Syfy’s post-apocalyptic disaster disaster “Aftermath” needs to be mentioned somewhere in this critics’ roundup, so here it is. But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »

Lexus-Branded L/Studio Platform Hosts Cooking Web Series About Food From Movies

23 March 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

It’s been awhile since we last checked in on L/Studio, the platform that once hosted hit series like Web Therapy and Cop Show, but the Lexus-branded outlet is still chugging along. Now in its eighth year, it continues to distribute new programs, the latest of which is Film to Table, a cooking show that recreates iconic dishes from movies.

Film to Table features host Jason Roberts as its chef de cuisine. In each episode, he will pick out and cook up his favorite movie foods, with special guests stopping by to add both figurative and literal flavor to his dishes. Up first is ramen, with Roberts and guest Haroon Adalat teaming up to analyze the Japanese comedy Tampopo, which is set in a ramen shop and has been called “one of the best food movies of all time.”

Last Week’S Podcast: ‘Doubt’ Producers on Their Show’s Transgender Breakthrough – IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Dan Bucatinsky has one of the more interesting careers in television – an actor, writer, producer who can’t be pigeonholed into one category. Bucatinsky might be best known as playing James Novak on ABC’s “Scandal,” which earned him a Primetime Emmy Award in 2013, or from “The Comeback,” the HBO series that took a nearly 10-year break between seasons.

But he’s also a successful TV producer, having partnered in 2003 with Lisa Kudrow to launch the production company Is or Isn’t Entertainment. Together, they’ve been behind “The Comeback,” the digital series “Web Therapy” (which eventually ended up on Showtime), and the reality series “Who Do You Think You Are?” on TLC.

Why Hollywood Awards Are Failing Independent TV

19 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Aymar Jean Christian is part of the inaugural class of Peabody Fellows, distinguished media scholars who provide fresh perspectives and commentary on behalf of the Peabody Media Center, the outreach and media production arm of the prestigious awards program based at the University of Georgia. He is an assistant professor of communication studies at Northwestern University.

You know you’re a TV nerd when your most anticipated awards announcements are the Writers Guild Awards. TV is a writer’s medium. Every TV fan awaits the Emmys, and some even bother to care about the Golden Globes, but most don’t know the major Guilds give out statues to television producers.

Nerdier still, I’m most interested in the nominees almost nobody writes about: web original short form comedies and dramas.

So while you probably could not imagine my disappointment when the WGA released their nominees for original short-form new media this year, »

12 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Meryl Streep made sure her voice was heard yet again when she hit the stage on Saturday night at the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala.

The 67-year-old actress addressed the criticism she received for her politically charged speech at last month's Golden Globes, and made light of President Donald Trump tweeting that she was "one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood."

Lily Tomlin Receives Life Achievement Award From Dolly Parton at 2017 SAG Awards

29 January 2017 6:47 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lily Tomlin's indelible mark on film and television was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild on Sunday.

The celebrated star was presented with the award by country music icon and 9 to 5 co-star Dolly Parton. Jane Fonda, who stars with Tomlin on the hit Netflix dramedy Grace and Frankie, was scheduled to present, but was forced to cancel due to strep throat, Tomlin told Et's Nancy O'Dell on the red carpet.

Tomlin, like so many others at this year's show, got political in her speech, but managed to use her razor wit to bring levity to the seriousness of the political climate.

"What a week this has been though, so you are kind of anti-climactic," Tomlin said, standing next to her award. "The doomsday clock has been moved up to two-and-a-half minutes before midnight! [So] This award it came just in the nick of time."
