Mandy Moore Says She Probably Cried More Shooting ‘This Is Us’ Than You Did Watching It
This story about Mandy Moore first appeared in the Comedy/Drama/Actors issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

Mandy Moore went through a lot this year. Well, Rebecca Pearson went through a lot — Moore just had to live through it while portraying the many iterations of the character on NBC’s “This Is Us.” It’s a job that has had her regularly breaking down on screen since the show first debuted in the fall of 2016.

Now, two seasons in, creator Dan Fogelman has yet to let the story well run dry, supplying an ever-increasing number of sob-worthy moments. This, of course, includes the story of how family patriarch Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) died at a young age, which was finally revealed to viewers in a special post-Super Bowl episode. That particular show drew even higher ratings than the Nielsen darling already gets on an average Tuesday.

Will “This Is Us” become the first broadcast network Emmy winner for Best Drama Series since Fox’s “24” in 2006?

It additionally scored eight acting nominations and won two of them: Best Drama Actor for Sterling K. Brown and Best Drama Guest Actor for Gerald McRaney. Can it build on that success in its second season?

In the NBC family drama, Metz plays Kate Pearson, one of three siblings navigating their way through love and loss.

I always took everything personally, like ‘oh my gosh I’m a terrible actress,’” she says. “‘if you just prepare and just stay

Anthony Hopkins (‘Westworld’) enters supporting Emmy race, but can he take down frontrunner David Harbour (‘Stranger Things’)?

HBO has confirmed to Gold Derby that last year’s Best Drama Actor nominee Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld”) will be back on the Emmy ballot this year … but with a twist. Because of his reduced screen time in Season 2, Hopkins now contends in Best Drama Supporting Actor, the same category that his costars Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris recently vacated to try their luck up in lead. Will this esteemed Oscar winner run off with his third career Emmy Award after prevailing for the telefilms “The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case” (1976) and “The Bunker” (1981)? If so, he’ll have to take down Gold Derby’s predicted frontrunner, David Harbour (“Stranger Things”).

This Is Us: Justin Hartley Teases That Kevin's New Love Will Have a
This Is Us is shaking things up for season three. Following a shocking time jump in the season two finale, the Big Three will be going through some major life adjustments when they return this Fall. While the flash-forward shows Kate tending to a bed-ridden Toby and Randall while getting ready to visit a mysterious "her" with a grownup Tess, Kevin is now dating Beth's cousin Zoe (played by British actress Melanie Liburd). We recently had a chance to sit down with Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin, during MorningStar Farms and EatWith's Summer grilling event, and he teased what's in store for his character this upcoming season.

After ending his relationship with Sophie in season two, Hartley said that Kevin's newfound romance with Zoe will have a "huge" impact on his character. "I mean, it's new, right?" he adds. "He's had his love of his life his entire life. He

‘This Is Us’ will get a lucky seven acting Emmy nominations again, readers predict

‘This Is Us’ will get a lucky seven acting Emmy nominations again, readers predict
Will it be seventh heaven again for “This Is Us”? That’s what our readers think. The show received seven acting Emmy nominations last year and 25 percent of our readers think the show will duplicate that tally again.

It would make it easier if all five main actors — Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley and Chrissy Metz — make the cut, as our readers are also predicting will happen. Only Moore and Hartley were snubbed last year.

This Is Us” submitted 23 actors this year and 23 percent believe the show can add an eighth nominee. Currently, our odds currently have eight actors making the cut: Moore, Brown, Ventimiglia, Metz, Hartley, and guest stars Pam Grier, Ron Cephas Jones and last year’s champ Gerald McRaney.

Sterling K. Brown And Justin Hartley Sound Game For Green Lantern Corps

Even though Warner Bros. have finally begun exposing moviegoers to what the DC Universe has to offer beyond Superman and Batman in our current decade, one element that I’d like to see generously expanded upon is that of anything pertaining to ringslingers. That said, you can probably imagine I’m a strong advocate for Green Lantern Corps seeing the light of day. I mean, 2011’s Green Lantern showed us the tip of the iceberg, but it just didn’t resonate with audiences.

Of course, you’d obviously expect more from a flick when it has the word “corps” in the title, thus it seems only natural that a fair amount of lightsmiths put in appearances. For the longest time, we’ve been hearing that Hal Jordan and John Stewart will serve as the central characters, but recent rumors hinted that newcomers Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz may usurp the spotlight.

'This Is Us' Star Justin Hartley on Finding Relief With His "Out-of-Control" Character

Though NBC’s This is Us spent two years leading up to what caused the imminent death of Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia), it was how Pearson’s death truly affected the characters that was the focal point of the recently-wrapped second season.

Whether battling alcoholism, a strained relationship with his family or an identity crisis, Hartley’s Kevin journeyed through a dark tunnel throughout the second season only to find a dim light upon the show’s ...

4 reasons Noah Emmerich (‘The Americans’) can finally sneak into the Emmy race

4 reasons Noah Emmerich (‘The Americans’) can finally sneak into the Emmy race
Like the show itself, “The Americans” has had a slow burn at the Emmys (if your name isn’t Margo Martindale). The ‘80s-set espionage drama, which ended its six-season run on Wednesday, was a critical darling, but struggled to crack the major categories until 2016, when it got nominations for drama series and for its leads Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. Their series-long co-star Noah Emmerich has yet to crack the supporting race, but his last chance is his best chance. Here’s why (spoilers if you haven’t watched “The Americans”’ series finale):

'Smallville' Star Allison Mack Proudly Takes Credit for the Idea of Branding Women in the Nxivm Sex Cult

Actress Allison Mack — best known for playing Clark Kent's friend Chloe Sullivan on the TV show Smallville — has made headlines recently for her involvement in an alleged sex cult masquerading as a self-help group called Nxivm. The group, founded by a man named Keith Raniere, was first exposed in a New York Times feature last year. But then, Frank Parlato, a former spokesman for Nxivm, claimed in his blog that Allison was second in command. In fact, he stated that she’s been running a sorority within the cult called Dos, that brands women, presides over them like they’re slaves, and recruits top performers for Keith’s harem! Believe it or not, Allison admitted to the branding, and even took credit for the horrifying idea! Keep reading for more info on the 35-year-old's life now.

How many acting Emmy nominations will ‘This Is Us’ get? [Poll]

How many acting Emmy nominations will ‘This Is Us’ get? [Poll]
Of the 10 Emmy nominations “This Is Us” received last year, seven of them were for acting. If that wasn’t enough evidence that actors love the tearjerker, the cast pulled off an upset at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, grabbing drama ensemble honors. If that love sustains and grows, how many acting nominations could the series nab this year?

Smallville’s Justin Hartley Is Willing To Appear On Arrow

Those among you who were fans of Smallville may remember that when the Superman prequel series was in its final years, The CW was kicking around the idea of a Green Arrow spinoff. After all, if any superhero aside from Clark Kent to have appeared on the show captured the hearts of viewers, it was certainly Oliver Queen. Having been played by Justin Hartley in seasons 6-10, the impact felt by the first live action representation of the Emerald Archer was undeniable. In fact, a separate offshoot almost happened midstream, but that’s a different discussion altogether.

So, when Arrow was finally being realized – and in a universe entirely separate from Smallville, to boot – some devotees were understandably skeptical. But, when you really thought about it, it’d be incredibly hard to launch a series accessible to new viewers when you’re tied down to years of continuity established by

Smallville’s Green Arrow And Lois Lane Almost Got Their Own Spinoff

Though the legacy of Smallville eventually continued with the highly enjoyable Season Eleven series of comic books, many dedicated fans of the Superman prequel show are well aware of how several spinoffs nearly came to fruition, or were at least talked about.

Of course, there’s the obvious one that everyone knows about, Aquaman, which actually had a pilot filmed and ultimately wasn’t picked up. Two others which you may or may not have heard of that didn’t gain much traction were that of potential series centered around the burgeoning Justice League and Laura Vandervoort’s Supergirl, but now we’re learning of another that sounds a bit intriguing.

Strangely enough, Justin Hartley, who was originally cast as Aquaman for the ill-fated offshoot and would’ve probably led the Jl as the Green Arrow had their own adventures came to be, was the center of discussion for Metropolis,
