Like many hungry thriller fans, we positively devoured the premiere of HBO's Sharp Objects. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, the story follows a journalist named Camille who returns to her hometown to investigate a string of murders. Following the first episode, we were struck by one big thing: the recognizable cast! Sure, we're talking about Amy Adams and Chris Messina, who are reuniting after appearing in Julie and Julia together. But there's another very familiar face among the group that's a bit harder to place: Frank Curry, Camille's editor in St. Louis, Mo. If you were scratching your head trying to place where you've seen him, we're here to help.

Frank is played by Miguel Sandoval, a 66-year-old actor who hails from Washington DC. The most obvious place you may have seen him is on ABC's new Grey's Anatomy spinoff, Station 19.

No Emmys for young men? Freddie Highmore, Kit Harington and Jonathan Groff fight bias against whippersnappers

No Emmys for young men? Freddie Highmore, Kit Harington and Jonathan Groff fight bias against whippersnappers
What do Freddie Highmore, Kit Harington and Jonathan Groff have in common? They’re all on the Emmy ballot for Best Drama Actor, and they’re all among the top 10 contenders for nominations according to our racetrack odds. One more thing: they’re all under the age of 35, which might be a disadvantage. No man in his 20s and hardly anyone in their early 30s have been nominated for Best Drama Actor in the 21st century. The youngest man nominated since 2000 was Michael C. Hall for “Six Feet Under” in 2002. He was 31.

As we see at the Oscars, where only one man in his 20s has ever won Best Actor, Emmy voters don’t usually recognize whippersnappers. The youngest winner of the 21st century was Rami Malek, who was 35 when he won for “Mr. Robot” in 2016. Besides him only three other winners this century were under 40: James Gandolfini for

Things are getting out of this world when UFO starring Gillian Anderson is released digitally and on DVD on September 4th. Also in today's Highlights: the search for new writers is on with Arrow Films FrightFest and Queensbury Pictures' New Blood 2 and a Bonejangles 2 Q&A.

UFO Trailer Brings Gillian Anderson Back to Her X-Files Roots

The trailer for Sony Pictures' UFO has been released online, and it actually looks like it could be an intriguing science fiction thriller. The movie stars Gillian Anderson, best known for playing Dana Scully in The X-Files, in addition to including a number of other talented cast members.

The story of UFO isn't like most alien-themed science fiction movies, which typically send the main character off into space with the aliens, or at least feature a human encountering an alien on Earth like in E.T.. Instead, UFO seems to go the same route as Super 8 by putting the focus almost completely on the human protagonists who believe in aliens, with them most likely not encountering the aliens themselves until the third act of the movie.

The movie's protagonist is played by Alex Sharp, who received a Tony Award for his stage work in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

‘UFO’ Trailer: Gillian Anderson Still Wants to Believe in Extraterrestrial Mystery — Watch
Gillian Anderson may be done with “The X-Files,” but that doesn’t mean she’s stopped believing. Sony is celebrating UFO Day (which is apparently a thing) by releasing the trailer for the appropriately named “UFO,” which finds a college student who’s pretty sure he saw a flying saucer as a kid trying desperately to prove that the truth is out there. Watch below.

Here’s the synopsis: “Derek (Alex Sharp) a brilliant college student, haunted by a childhood UFO sighting, believes that mysterious sightings reported at multiple airports across the United States are UFO’s. With the help of his girlfriend, Natalie (Ella Purnell), and his advanced mathematics professor, Dr. Hendricks (Gillian Anderson), Derek races to unravel the mystery with FBI special agent Franklin Ahls (David Strathairn) on his heels.”

Ryan Eslinger directed the film, having previously helmed “Daniel and Abraham” and “When a Man Falls.” “UFO” will

Spider-Man and Seinfeld Actor Stanley Anderson Dies at 78

Spider-Man and Seinfeld Actor Stanley Anderson Dies at 78
Actor Stanley Anderson, best known for his work in the show Seinfeld and in the 2002 Spider-Man, has passed away at age 78, according to a statement from his family. He died peacefully Sunday, six weeks after learning he had brain cancer.

Stanley Anderson gained a reputation as a "President" actor, having played the President in a number of movies. His most notable outing as a President was in the 1998 action flick Armageddon. Even when he wasn't playing Presidents, he regularly seemed to be cast into the role of some other kind of government official, such as judges, senators and generals. In fact, in Spider-Man, he portrayed General Slocum, who was the U.S. general who was interested in buying from Norman Osborn, before Osborn blew Slocum and his men up after becoming the Green Goblin.

Anderson also appeared in the finale episode of Seinfeld, playing a judge. While it was only one episode,

‘Breaking Bad’ Creator Vince Gilligan Suggests ‘Maybe It’s Time for Heroes Again’ on TV

While the 2000s was the age of the antihero as Tony Soprano, Don Draper, and Walter White graced television screens, “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan proposes that the current political climate may call for the resurgence of a different kind of leading character for viewers to rally behind.

During a conversation after the premiere screening of CNN’s “The 2000s” at the Paley Center for Media on Thursday night, Gilligan recounted: “I watched a lot of TV growing up, a lot of ’50s and ’60s re-runs. Back then, the order of the day

Salvation Season 2 Premiere Asks What’s Worse, Apocalypse or Politics?

The Salvation season 2 premiere has the show off to a good start. It’s always a positive sign when a season premiere picks up pretty much where the last season ended. Why is this a good sign? It suggests that the writers had an inkling of where the story was going before they sat down to start the next season. This usually helps shows avoid tangles that high concept shows can fall into that lead to awful endings. Salvation is a show that admittedly had some bumps in its rollout last season.

Jonathan Groff (‘Mindhunter’): Emmy Experts say the Netflix G-Man could track down his first nomination

Jonathan Groff (‘Mindhunter’): Emmy Experts say the Netflix G-Man could track down his first nomination
Jonathan Groff is a two-time Tony nominee for his work on Broadway, and his musical theater work even won him a Grammy. But despite a significant TV resume he has yet to be nominated for an Emmy. Now he’s a contender for Best Drama Actor for Netflix’s psychological thriller “Mindhunter.” It doesn’t hurt that the series is directed and produced by David Fincher, who has directed many nominated performances in film and TV.

Groff stars as Holden Ford, an FBI agent in the 1970s who is fascinated by the psychology of serial killers. It’s a far cry from the actor’s previous roles, like “Glee” villain Jesse St. James and lovelorn “Looking” protagonist Patrick Murray. But it’s a change of pace that could appeal to the television academy, who have nominated other G-Men before him like Kyle MacLachlan in “Twin Peaks” (1990-1991) and David Duchovny

The “Dark Matter” TV series came years after the debut of the Dark Horse comic book it’s based on, but creators Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie originally conceived of the series — about six individuals who wake up on a starship together with their memories wiped — as a TV show before it was redeveloped as a comic in 2012.

Film Review: ‘The Year of Spectacular Men’

Film Review: ‘The Year of Spectacular Men’
The “spectacular” in Lea Thompson’s “The Year of Spectacular Men” is meant to be taken with a grain of salt — or rather, several shots of tequila, which is how Izzy Klein winds up tumbling into bed with dudes who don’t respect her. In an opening montage, the guys tell us who she is: insecure, neurotic, depressive, and “sexy in a goofy Special Olympics way.” They’re jerks. But she convinces herself each one is Prince Charming because she wants her fairy tale happy ending on page one. This un-spectacular recent college grad would rather kiss creeps than fix her flaws, which means the film’s plot is basically hurdling relationships on a treadmill. Izzy’s going nowhere but she’s always about to fall flat on her face. And it’s as exhausting for the audience as it is for her.

2018 Emmy Awards nominations ballot: See the 160 Best Drama Series hopefuls from A (‘Altered Carbon’) to X (‘The X-Files’)
TV academy voters will get a bit of a break this month when they sit down to cast their 2018 Emmy Awards nominations ballots, This year, they only have to consider 160 shows for Best Drama Series; in 2017, that number was 180. And they no longer have to winnow their choices down to just 10 favorites. As with last year, they are being told to “Vote for as many achievements in this category that you have seen and feel are worthy of a nomination.”

Remember, only seven of the shows below will earn bids for Best Drama Series when the nominations are announced on July 12. While the reigning champ, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” is back with a sophomore season, it faces “Game of Thrones” for the first time.
