Apparently certain Mad Men fans are like the show's narrative progress or one of Betty's dinner parties or from-scratch cakes: they take their time and don't rush it. So before the last season kicks off Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m., here is what you need to know (warning: if you are a binge-watcher and haven't gotten to season six, stop reading now or forever hold your spoiler-griping): Affairs aboundSeason six was a treasure trove of secret dalliances and spurned affection.

Watch Out, Jimmy Fallon: Stephen Colbert Can Sing (and Dance), Too!

13 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jimmy Fallon joked on Twitter that Stephen Colbert will need to change his first name to Jimmy when he joins the ranks of late-night talk show hosts next year, but he might not be smiling once the Colbert Report star settles into David Letterman's chair. That's because Fallon is not the only triple threat in town - Colbert (who will be ditching his ultraconservative alter ego when he takes on the new gig) has some serious singing skills. We're talking Broadway serious. Here's Colbert on stage at the Lincoln Center in N.Y.C. in 2011 with Neil Patrick Harris in Company (and yes, »

Inside 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' -- And Sony's strategy to supersize its franchise

8 April 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This appeared in the April 4 issue of Entertainment Weekly.

With Great Marketing comes great responsibility. In December, Sony released its first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — the idea, as always, being to spill exactly the right number of secrets and not half a secret more. “I was nervous about it,” says director Marc Webb. “But we wanted to raise the stakes. We want people to appreciate the scope of what’s to come both in this movie and in subsequent films.” So fans saw their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) swinging exuberantly between the gleaming skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. »

‘If/Then’ Theater Review: Idina Menzel Lets It Go and Go

30 March 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nearly 45 years ago, I saw a performance of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's musical “Company.” The show had just opened and the theatergoers at my particular performance were more than a little confused and exasperated at this tendency the characters had for repeatedly showing up at the same birthday party. They wanted to know, Why is Bobby celebrating so many birthdays? That was 1970. In 2014, I've been experiencing déjà vu when I visit the theater chat rooms to read all the confusion and exasperation with regard to Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey's new musical, “If/Then,” which opened Sunday. »

Oscars 2014: Top 5 Acceptance Speeches from Lupita Nyong'o to Jared Leto

3 March 2014 7:42 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While live-blogging the Oscars you really don't get too much of a chance to take in all the acceptance speeches. I catch a few moments here and there, and I can pretty much tell when the air is being let out of the room as well as those moments where someone is really capturing the moment. What I've put together below are the five speeches where I think the winner really managed to stand-out. I also love the true excitement coupled with the words chosen in these speeches. Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave, especially, seemed to capture the room with her infectious smile as much as Jennifer Lawrence a year before, not to forget her brother, Peter, who photobombed Ellen's Twitter-breaking selfie and is clearly someone very special in Lupita's life and she in his. The only truly strange thing about these speeches is John Ridley and Steve McQueen failing »

The Oscars speech of the night goes to newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, who won best supporting actress for her role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave.

Transcripts of all Academy Awards winners’ onstage speeches…

Performance by an actress in a supporting role

Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave

Yes! Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. And so I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own. Steve McQueen, you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. Thank you so much for putting me in this position. This has been the joy of my life. I’m certain that the dead are standing about you and watching and they »

'Grey's Anatomy' Mid-Season Premiere Recap: Did April Choose Jackson or Matthew?

27 February 2014 1:02 PM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Welcome back, Grey's Anatomy fans! We have survived the hiatus and now have the pleasure of anticipating twelve (that's right, twelve!) uninterrupted episodes straight through to the season finale in May. Thank you, ABC. On to the mid-season premiere. Actually, hold that thought. I'm getting ahead of myself. It's been two and a half months since the Fall Finale. Let's review. 

When last we watched Meredith and Company, Derek was getting a phone called from the President of the United States. Jolex were making out by the side of the barn and pledging lifelong devotion. Miranda and Ben were having a tiff over him having given up his surgical residency. Both Calzona and Crowen were shooting pining looks at each other. And, oh yes. Jackson was standing up in the middle of April's wedding to Matthew to proclaim his love for her. Caught up? Excellent. Here we go.

Orlando Bloom Resurrects ‘Romeo’ for Valentine’s Day Moviegoers

14 February 2014 2:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Orlando Bloom’s “Romeo and Juliet” closed on Broadway, at a loss, last December. But a filmed version of the stage show opens in 800 theaters this weekend in time for Valentine’s Day.

The new “Romeo and Juliet” cinemacast marks the latest effort to turn stage shows into a theatrical experience, a trend that is only in its infancy on Broadway but is more popular with London productions.

“Initially when it was suggested to me, I was like, ‘I don’t know how I feel about that,’” Bloom said last week in New York. “Can they capture the magic? Can they capture the feeling of being in a live audience in that theater?”

“And then I thought, ‘(why not?)’” He said he wanted to leave a record of his performance for his 3-year-old son and future generations of Shakespeare students. “Quite honestly, the experience was very rewarding,” Bloom said. “It’s a very challenging role. »

Maggie Gyllenhaal to make her Broadway debut in Tom Stoppard play

13 February 2014 6:37 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Dark Knight co-star will join Ewan McGregor in The Real Thing revival. Plus, Sting ships maritime musical to the Great White Way and Hugh Jackman to host Tony awards … again

Maggie Gyllenhaal is to make her Broadway debut this year when she joins Ewan McGregor in a revival of Tom Stoppard's comedy The Real Thing.

Gyllenhaal will star as Annie, an actor involved in an extramarital affair with a glib playwright – to be played by McGregor, whose casting was announced in November. The roles were first played on Broadway in 1984 by Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons, who both won Tony awards for their performances.

This is The Real Thing's third outing on Broadway. A Donmar Warehouse transfer in 2000, with Jennifer Ehle and Stephen Dillane, also won several Tony awards. The new revival will be produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company, with the acclaimed director Sam Gold at the helm. »

On the Scene: Drama League honors Neil Patrick Harris at annual gala

4 February 2014 11:57 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It was a star-studded night at Manhattan’s Pierre Hotel as over 150 artists — including stars Tim Gunn, Stephen Colbert, and Audra McDonald (and yes, even some Muppets) — came out to celebrate stage and screen star Neil Patrick Harris at the Drama League’s 30th annual all-star gala.

It’s no secret that Harris — who will soon be back on stage starring in a new version of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which opens April 14 — has garnered quite an admiration from the communities he’s been involved in. But there was no question Monday night that Harris is admired for more than just his talent. »

Ben Affleck And Matt Damon May Reunite For Survival Drama A Speck In The Sea

15 January 2014 12:31 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the nicest sights that viewers at home could see from the celebrity minglings at last weekend’s Golden Globes was watching old friends Matt Damon and Ben Affleck chatting together. Now, the Oscar-winning screenwriters and longtime friends may be returning to the big screen as co-stars – that is, if Harvey Weinstein has his way.

The Weinstein Company recently bought the film rights to a recent New York Times Magazine cover story titled A Speck in the Sea, by Paul Tough. The article tells the incredible true story of two lobster fishermen, John Aldridge and Anthony Sosinski. Aldridge fell into the ocean in the middle of the night without a vest, while Sosinski woke up hours later to find his lifelong friend awash at sea. The frantic life-and-death situation eventually required the Coast Guard and other rescue operations to bring Aldridge to safety.

Kevin Kline on Las Vegas: 'Everyone looked miserable'

2 January 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

His new movie, Last Vegas, is a geriatric take on the party town stag weekend. He talks about why he'll never return, Hollywood's obsession with youth, and playing Falstaff in a fat suit

Last year, Kevin Kline spent a fortnight in Las Vegas shooting his latest movie. It was his first trip to that infamous mecca of sex and excess. "And my last," proclaims the 66-year-old, voice rolling, theatrical. "Everyone looked so miserable. I would see these couples pushing babies in strollers through the casinos like zombies. It was horrible." He shakes his head, sorrowful.

"And I just couldn't bear the constant noise. I would step outside the hotel to get some fresh air and it would be 'boom, boom, boom'" – he does an impressive impression of pounding bassline – "disco music blaring on the kerb, by the pool, everywhere. That is not my idea of tranquillity."

This, I suspect, is more like it. »
