Five Things You Didn’t Know About Margo Martindale

While she is rarely mentioned in the same conversation with the likes of Nicole Kidman or Meryl Streep, Margo Martindale has amassed a rather impressive acting resume over the last several years. She has conquered both TV and the Big screen, and she has had some rather impressive runs on TV series over the last several years. One series, The Millers, was recently cancelled, much to the dismay of Martindale, but she has taken it all in stride. She has a very influential role in the TV series, The Americans, which is currently in its 6th and final season. While

The big blockbusters of summer 2018

Simon Brew May 9, 2017

Mission: Impossible, Avengers, Dwayne Johnson, Jurassic World, Ant-Man and more are lining up to meet you next summer. Oh, and The Statham.

With summer blockbuster season 2017 in full swing, and with Fast & Furious 8 speeding over the $1bn mark already, a bunch of filmmakers are furiously putting together their films for release this time next year (or thereabouts). Here, as things stand, is the state of summer blockbuster season 2018. We’ve veered towards UK release dates on the whole, but as always, things can quickly change.

Also, we’ve not included unnamed films: Universal, for instance, has reserved a slot for one of its classic monster universe movies, but not told anybody what it is yet. As more information pops up, we’ll keep this list up to date…

The Best TV Guest Stars Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best TV Guest Stars Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey
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),

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

2017-01-02T10:49:30-08:00'Will & Grace' Revival Apparently a Go

Actor Leslie Jordan, who co-starred in NBC's Will & Grace, said in a recent interview that the network has finalized a deal to produce 10 new episodes of the series. The news has not been confirmed by NBC, the show's producers, or any of its principal stars. Earlier rumors, however, had suggested that a revival was in the works.

The early-2000s sitcom gained some buzz just before the presidential election when a short, election-themed reunion scene was filmed and went viral online. After the positive reaction, the show's producers were reportedly pushing the idea of a revival, and the series' stars, including Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally all seemed to be open to the idea.

Jordan told radio station Kpbs that NBC has ordered 10 episodes of a series revival and intends to air it beginning in the fall 2017 season.

Coming Distractions: A creepy possessed kid gets even creepier in the new Ouija 2 trailer

Horror movies have been using creepy kids to good effect for years, dating back at least to Patty McCormack in The Bad Seed. In the case of the upcoming Ouija: Origin Of Evil, the evil kid in question is The MillersLulu Wilson, who gets top billing in the latest trailer for Mike Flanagan’s surprisingly scary-looking sequel to the 2014 hit. The trailer shows off some standard horror movie CGI—expect milky eyes and uncannily wide mouths galore—but the most extended scare comes from the last minute or so, when Wilson gives a matter-of-fact description of death by strangulation that’s legitimately chilling in its sing-song sweetness.

Ouija: Origin Of Evil hits theaters on October 21.
