Big Bang Theory Season 10 May Be Its Last Says Kunal Nayyar

Big Bang Theory Season 10 May Be Its Last Says Kunal Nayyar
Having just wrapped Season 9 a couple weeks ago, it has already been confirmed that The Big Bang Theory will return for Season 10 in the fall. But where it goes after that is anyone's guess. It has long been rumored that America's favorite sitcom will continue for a few more years. But star Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj, is hinting that may not be true. It's very possible that these upcoming episodes could be the show's last.

Kunal Nayyar showed up at McM Comic-Con London this past week, and he wasn't as optimistic as some of his other cast mates when it comes to The Big Bang Theory being renewed past Season 10. He claims that the cast contracts do not extend past the 2016-2017 season. And it doesn't sound like there are any current negotiations to continue, though that could change. The actor explains via Radio Times.

New on DVD & BluRay this week are three films which awards season completists will need to see...

 

Mr Holmes in which 76 year-old spry Sir Ian McKellen is aged up to play the world's most famous detective at 93 years of age as he mind begins to deteriorate. Mr Holmes was a leggy arthouse hit this summer but can that be converted into an awards run for Sir Ian? We shall see... Tangerine, one of the year's best films, follows Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) & Alexandra (Mya Taylor), best friends & hookers, as they search for Sin-Dee's boyfriend/pimp (James Ransone) who cheated on her "with real fish!" during her latest prison stint. It's the most unexpected and awesome Christmas comedy ever. It's already snagged multiple Gotham nominations but pray for Golden Globe, Bfca, Spirit nominations and top ten lists because this Sean Baker gem deserves them. Trainwreck, or The Coronation of Amy Schumer as 2015's It Girl.

The Big Bang Theory Star Directs a Movie Where He's the Object of Lust

The Big Bang Theory Star Directs a Movie Where He's the Object of Lust
A dimwitted fantasy designed for the types of nerds found on his hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, Simon Helberg's We'll Never Have Paris details the efforts of hypochondriac dweeb Quinn (Helberg) to figure out which of his numerous sexual partners he'd most like to keep around. Will it be longtime girlfriend Devon (Melanie Lynskey), who finds his made-up ailments and refusal to play piano in public endearing? Or how about co-worker Kelsey (Maggie Grace), the former model who unbelievably can't resist his nebbish charm? Or maybe it's just that random blonde who, upon seeing on their first date that Quinn is wanted by multiple women, immediately sleeps with him? Co-directed by Helberg and his wife, Jocelyn Towne, this dreary indie imagines a magical univ...

Watch: First Trailer For Rom-Com 'We'll Never Have Paris' With Melanie Lynskey, Maggie Grace, Zachary Quinto & More

You can't see 'em all, and last spring at SXSW, the rom-com "We'll Never Have Paris" just couldn't fit in our schedule. And even though it played a handful of festivals since, it just didn't cross our path. And so, we'll just have to catch it when it opens in theaters next month, and the trailer for the movie has dropped to show what we've been missing. Written, co-directed and starring Simon Helberg, the movie follows a man whose indecision about marrying the first woman he's ever been with has serious consequences when she ups and leaves for Paris. And so he follows her there hoping to win her back. It's a simple enough premise, and we always love Melanie Lynskey, and the supporting players in place are solid too with Maggie Grace, Zachary Quinto and Alfred Molina rounding things out. "We'll Never Have Paris" arrives on January 22nd. Watch below.

Edinburgh 2014: 'We'll Never Have Paris' review

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆Best known as the one of the lovable nerds around which CBS's world-dominating The Big Bang Theory revolves, Simon Helberg has now moved behind the camera for his cinematic directorial debut alongside his wife Jocelyn Towne. Inspired by their own romantic history, We'll Never Have Paris (2014) - which he also wrote - stars Helberg as a man suffering a relationship crisis just as he's plucked up the courage to pop the big question. Premièring in the UK at the Edinburgh Film Festival, We'll Never Have Paris wears Woody Allen's heart firmly on its sleeve, yet never quite scales the heights of the works it so desperately attempts to reference and emulate.

Maggie Grace and Jason Ritter Have a Lot of Feelings About Game of Thrones

Maggie Grace and Jason Ritter's characters, Siri and Ben, have a complicated relationship in their new film About Alex (read our review), but in real life, they are the best of friends. When we were chatting with Grace at the Tribeca Film Festival, Ritter couldn't help but sneak in, too - even though he and his costar Max Greenfield had already shared some embarrassing stories with us. The duo explained the whole cast's dynamic - including how Jane Levy and Aubrey Plaza bunked up because one of them was scared of ghosts - and revealed some heartrending behind-the-scenes moments that were left on the cutting-room floor. And if you haven't seen the first season of Game of Thrones, be forewarned: Grace spills a major character death that Liam Neeson actually ruined for her a long time ago. Source: Alyse Whitney Popsugar: The chemistry in this film among the whole ensemble is fantastic.

El Rey Network Scores Alfred Molina for Kurtzman/Orci Original Action Series, 'Matador' Premiering in July on Robert Rodriguez's New Cable Network

Genre filmmaker Robert Rodriguez's El Rey Network announced today that Alfred Molina (The Da Vinci Code, Spider Man 2) has been cast as Andres Galan in the network's upcoming scripted original set to premiere July 2014. Previously announced cast members include Gabriel Luna, Nicky Whelan and Neil Hopkins.

Created by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and produced in association with K/O Paper Products, the coveted writing/producing team behind Sleepy Hollow, Fringe , Star Trek and the Transformer franchise, Matador will feature Molina as Andrew Galan, a man who built his fortune in the telecom industry, but his true passion is soccer. As owner of the ascendant La Riot franchise, he is celebrated in both the sports and business worlds. But there is another world that he operates in -- as a member of an elite group of powerful global players, ruthless individuals who can effect world events on a scale that one would never imagine. What Galan doesn't know is that there is a mole in his midst. One of his new players, Tony Bravo, is actually an undercover operative, sent in to expose him and his cohorts. As Tony and Galan grow closer, the fate of their relationship may very well determine the fate of the world.

Irreverent and action-packed, Matador chronicles the unlikely rise of Antonio "Matador" Bravo, a popular soccer star, who comes to be known as much for his playboy antics off the field as his dynamic moves on it. But what his fans and family don't realize is that it's all a cover--in truth, he is a skilled covert operative executing missions for a little known branch of the CIA. “Matador” has the kind of fame and notoriety that affords him access to powerful circles of corruption and villainy. But, in balancing the dueling roles in which he's been cast, he will be forced to confront the question of his true identity...and it is this mission which will prove to be his most dangerous.

Robert Rodriguez, El Rey Network's chairman and founder, is set to direct the first episode which will be penned by showrunners, co-creators and executive producers Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin

An accomplished London-born actor whose diverse and distinguished gallery of performances have led to a lengthy and triumphant career in film, television and the stage, Alfred Molina is best known for his roles in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 and Steven Soderberg’s Frida. Molina made his American film debut in Raiders of the Lost Ark and later appeared in Letter to Brezhnev, but his movie breakthrough came two years later when he portrayed Kenneth Halliwell, the tragic lover of playwright Joe Orton, in Stephen Frears' Prick Up Your Ears. His other feature film credits include The Da Vinci Code, Boogie Nights, Magnolia , Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time , The Pink Panther 2, Enchanted April, Not Without My Daughter , The Perez Family, Anna Karenina and Chocolat , among others. On television, he most recently starred on NBC’s Law & Order: Los Angeles and David E. Kelley’s TNT drama series Monday Mornings. Molina’s stage work includes two major Royal National Theatre productions, Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana and David Mamet's Speed the Plow, as well as his Broadway debut in Yasmina Reza's Art, for which he received a Tony Award® nomination. Molina also performed in the highly celebrated UK-based Donmar Warehouse production of Red which opened on Broadway in April 2010 and for which Mr. Molina received rave reviews and a Tony Award® nomination. Most recently, Molina completed the feature film Love Is Strange opposite John Lithgow for director Ira Sachs. The film premiered at Sundance this year, and will be released later in the year by Sony Classics. He also shot the feature films, Swelter for director/writer Keith Parmer, We'll Never Have Paris for director/writer Simon Helberg with co-stars Zachary Quinto and Maggie Grace, Return to Zero with co-star Minnie Driver and The Normal Heart for HBO in which he co-stars opposite Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts.

Matador executive producers are Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin, also showrunners, alongside executive producers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Andrew Orci. Also joining as executive producers are Heather Kadin of K/O Paper Products; Robert Rodriguez and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa.
