‘Escapes’ Review: A Breezy, Rambling Doc About the TV Actor Who Slept Around, Cheated Death, and Wrote ‘Blade Runner’

26 July 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In order to understand the kind of life that Hampton Fancher has led, consider this: He once spent a month living in sin with a schizophrenic lingerie model, and it barely merits a passing mention in the breezy documentary that “Experimenter” director Michael Almereyda has made about him. Fancher is just one of those guys — you know the kind. The word is usually “raconteur,” but that doesn’t quite seem to cover it, here. In fact, there isn’t a word in the English language that does.

Born in 1938 and an undefinable survivor ever since, Fancher choreographed striptease routines for his sister when he was 10, he snuck about a ship to Spain when he was 15, where he became a flamenco dancer before sailing back to the States with Marlon Brando and Salvador Dali. He started working as a two-bit television actor, though he really only liked the job for the »

Watch The First Trailer For ‘Black Mirror’-Style Sci-Fi ‘Marjorie Prime’ Starring Jon Hamm

26 July 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A few years on from the end of “Mad Men,” and Jon Hamm hasn’t quite hit movie star stratosphere in the way that some predicted for him. He’s been associated with some hits — “The Town,” “Bridesmaids,” but his occasional vehicles like “Million Dollar Arm” or “Keeping Up With The Joneses” never quite set the world alight, and he’s often seemed more interested in doing fun cameos on TV comedies than pursuing A-list film status.

25 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s that time of year again, when champagne corks are popped all over Hollywood in honor of the Television Academy’s Emmy nominations. But the true celebration cannot begin until the winners are announced live on Sept. 17. With so much high-quality TV vying for the top prizes — and some surprises among the nominees — it’s shaping up to be one of the most competitive Emmy seasons in years. Here, Variety breaks down the key races.

Drama Series

Taking the torch from “Game of Thrones,” which has been the most-nominated series for the past few years, is fellow HBO genre series “Westworld.” The sci-fi thriller is tied with long-running variety sketch series “Saturday Night Live” at 22 noms this year, the most of any series. More notably, it’s also one of five freshman series in the race — and that buzz may well boost it over long-in-the-tooth “House of Cards” (six noms for the Netflix drama), or even »

Some familiar faces return in the first trailer for the Doctor Who 2017 Christmas Special

24 July 2017 2:35 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Just over a week ago The BBC announced the new Doctor Who. Jodie Whittaker, whose turns in Black Mirror and Broadchurch (as well as the wonderful 2017 film Adult Life Skills) attest, is more than capable of taking the iconic sci-fi character to new places.

It’s About Time: Joy as ‘Doctor Who’ Casts a Woman as Lead (Column)

16 July 2017 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Oh, thank goodness: Hooray for the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor on “Doctor Who.”

The last thing I wanted to write today was an angry screed about “Doctor Who.” I’ve been watching the show loyally for four decades; I’ve been through every up and down and alien invasion. No matter how much it may frustrate me in a given episode or a season, I love it so much. It’s about people without guns who roam around trying to do good and save people. With a screwdriver. At its best, “Doctor Who” irreverent, whip-smart and deeply humane.

So I was going to be disappointed and not a little furious if the Thirteenth Doctor was yet another white man.

For more than 50 years, every Doctor has been from that demographic, and of course, some versatile actors have done wonderful work in the role. I’d have a tough time picking my favorite: Is »

‘Doctor Who’: Why Jodie Whittaker Is Such an Exciting Choice for the 13th Doctor

16 July 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Say this about the last year: a female President didn’t happen, but we did get a female Doctor.

With Jodie Whittaker’s casting as the 13th Doctor, “Doctor Who” has reached a new historical milestone, a moment many never thought would come. Gender-flipping has been an established part of the “Doctor Who” mythology, but the fact that the series lead has gone from white male to white male to white male over the course of its 50-plus years had us less than optimistic that chance would ever happen.
