Chris Messina delighted his fans when he danced and stripped as Danny Castellano on The Mindy Project, and he has upped the stakes with his appearance in Digging for Fire: Messina gets completely naked in the Joe Swanberg-directed film. And not just that — he cannonballs into a pool while unclothed. THR film critic John DeFore reviewed Digging for Fire and said that in one shot Messina sits up from a pool chair and plunges into the pool nude, moving the whole time. He explained that this is part of a long shot with a lot of other actors in

“CSI” showed Tuesday that it still has some left in the tank nearing the end of its 15th season, as a special original episode on the night delivered the show’s best scores since its 14th-season finale last May and helped cap a dominant ratings victory for CBS.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, CBS won each hour of the final Tuesday before the February sweep with repeats of “NCIS” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 12.8 million viewers overall) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 11.6 million viewers overall) and an original episode of “CSI” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 10.3 million viewers overall), which drew more young adults than the combined timeslot tallies of repeats of “Chicago Fire” on NBC (0.8/3 in 18-49, 3.6 million viewers overall) and “Forever” on ABC (0.7/2 in 18-49, 3.0 million viewers overall).

Let’s recap the R-rated bounty we’ve already received at what Vulture Kyle has dubbed “The Sundance of Sex”: Sebastian Stan was involved in the most gymnastic penetration ever captured onscreen; Jack Black hooked up with a certain paramour of Liz Lemon’s; Alexander Skarsgård took his clothes off to aid the sexual awakening of a teenager; Jason Sudeikis digitally pleasured a bottle of green tea; and Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman danced full-frontal while swinging their prosthetic dicks with joy.As of today, add Chris Messina to that august list. Fans of The Mindy Project will be thrilled to know that Messina strips down completely in Joe Swanberg’s Digging for Fire. Messina’s part isn’t large, but what you see … I’m blushing too much to finish this sentence, but trust that unlike the full-frontal in The Overnight, it’s all real. Swanberg works without a script, »

"Behind every great woman is another woman," said John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, as he introduced four of the entertainment industry's most powerful women, who happen to also be excellent comedy writers: Jenji Kohan ("Orange is the New Black"), Lena Dunham ("Girls"), Kristen Wiig ("Saturday Night Live" and "Bridesmaids") and Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project"). The panel, "Serious Ladies," aimed to both explore and deconstruct the idea of the "female creator" in today's entertainment landscape. The comedians shared anecdotes in their familiar humorous fashion, but underneath the jokes was a serious undercurrent of the misogyny these women face in Hollywood. "Female writer" as a double-edged swordFemale writers are asked more frequently about all the following topics than male writers: Whether their work is autobiographical, whether their characters are likable, whether their »

Comedians Lena Dunham (Girls), Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), Jenji Kohan (Orange Is the New Black, Weeds) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, SNL) spoke about women in television and film on Saturday (January 24) at the Serious Ladies panel.
New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum guided the panel through such topics as the rise of three-dimensional female characters, the different ways humour can eliminate stereotypes and the importance of sex within a narrative construct. The event was part of the Power Of Story series.
Female-driven series in television
After general references by the panel to the emergence of female-driven television series – Jill Soloway’s recent Golden Globe winner Transparent and Jane Campion’s Sundance 2013 selection Top Of The Lake arose as examples – Kohan turned to viewer demographics.
She cited the film industry’s catering to men aged 18-34 as a reason for the lack of strong female leads and television’s (seemingly) wider target audience for a more diverse »

Proving that it learned absolutely nothing from Gracepoint, its failed remake of British mystery series Broadchurch, Fox is moving ahead with a remake of the BBC cop drama Luther, having handed the adaptation a pilot order. Additionally, the network has ordered dramas Frankenstein and Rosewood, and half-hour comedy 48 Hours ‘Til Monday.
The pilot order for Luther is dependent on which actors end up being cast. Idris Elba is (bizarrely) not attached as a star, though he and original series creator Neil Cross are attached as exec-producers (Cross will also pen the script). Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope, as well as the BBC’s Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, will also exec-produce.
Luther will again focus on John Luther, a brilliant and tormented detective who gets inside the heads of the monsters he hunts. Whether Fox will botch it as completely as they did Gracepoint remains to be seen, »

Fans of Fox’s The Mindy Project (myself included) are dreading next month, when one of the show’s best actors (and characters) will be leaving the series. Adam Pally, who plays Dr. Peter Prentice on the sitcom, is exiting The Mindy Project to pursue other projects (although he has promised to guest star if his schedule permits), and now we know what one of those big, new projects is. As first reported by E! Online, Pally will be one of The Late Late Show‘s guest hosts on CBS before the show’s new, permanent host James Corden (Into the Woods, Begin Again) takes over on March 9. Pally will have his chance at his hosting next Friday, Jan. 30, and he will be joined by guests Ben Schwarz (Showtime’s House of Lies and Parks and Recreation), Eric Andre (Fxx’s new comedy series Man Seeking Woman), and alternative rock »

The title of their show is meant to be ironic—or at the least a portmanteau of "working" and "alcoholics"—but the three stars of Comedy Central's Workaholics show up late at night and sober, having just pulled a double shift. We're on the patio of Hollywood's Black bar, and the boys are relaxing after a grueling day of shooting a fifth season, which premiered Jan. 14. Adam DeVine, 31, Blake Anderson, 30, and Anders Holm, 33, play Adam, Blake, and Anders: three inveterate bros who have mastered the art of underachievement. But these comedians aren't slackers, pursuing individual careers with spots on »

Zac Efron has signed on to Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, a film about two brothers who create an online ad to find dates for a wedding only for the ad to go viral. Chernin Entertainment and Fox are looking to fill the role of Efron's brother for the film, which they hope will be similar to the Sandra Bullock-Melissa McCarthy team-up, The Heat. [Variety] Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) will be joining Robert De Niro and Zac Efron for Dirty Grandpa. The comedy, set to come out in summer 2016, is about an uptight guy in his 20s »

Adam Pally is set to exit The Mindy Project (don't even get us started on how much we'll miss him on the Fox comedy!), and he's already got his next TV gig lined up!

What do you get when an ex-cult member spends a decade and a half underground to escape the End of Days before being let loose in the modern day Big Apple? The premise for Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt, of course. The streaming video-on-demand company just released a two-minute trailer for its upcoming comedy series set for release on March 6, 2015.
The Kimmy Schmidt trailer starts off with a Swat team finding the apocalypse shelter of Kimmy (played by The Office’s Ellie Kemper). She and her fellow cult sisters are brought to New York City, where Kimmy decides to stay and make a life for herself despite being severely out-of-date after 15 years underground. The spunky redhead proceeds to find new roommates, get a job as a nanny for an upscale family, and naively yet wittily compliment a construction worker who’s trying to hit on her.
