Exclusive: How Emily Hampshire's Breakout TV Roles Are Messing Up Her Dating Life

Exclusive: How Emily Hampshire's Breakout TV Roles Are Messing Up Her Dating Life
Sometimes Emily Hampshire slips into character during dates.

Things get awkward, the Canadian actress tells Et, when her courter suddenly realizes that she's not Stevie Budd, the deadpan, buttoned-up motel clerk she hilariously portrays on Pop TV's Schitt's Creek, which just finished airing a critically acclaimed third season earlier this year. In fact, Hampshire, who frequently breaks into uproarious giggle fits during our freewheeling interview, couldn't be more infectiously giddy and refreshingly forthcoming.

"I feel bad that I'm not Stevie for them, that I'm not as cool as Stevie," the 35-year-old actress says. "They meet me and they're like, 'Oh, you're way more animated than Stevie is.' I can hear the disappointment in their voice."

That's when, she acknowledges, "I try to overcompensate for not being Stevie."

So then they get Jennifer Goines, the brainy but unhinged heroine she plays on Syfy's 12 Monkeys. If you know Jennifer, you know this means Hampshire's dates end with

Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 14 Review: Heart Failure

Major Crimes is back for eight episodes!

I'm thrilled. I've missed Provenza, Flynn, and Sanchez, and I'm relieved to see Flynn is in okay shape after his health crisis at the end of the summer season.

And if this show being back wasn't good enough news, Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 14 features Camryn Manheim as the new Deputy Chief Davis, whose existence seems to be based on making Raydor miserable.

Major Crimes has always been about characters more than about the mystery of the week.

There's always a crime to be solved and they always manage to solve it, but the fun is in watching Provenza battle with technology, bureaucracy or one of his other enemies while the other characters struggle with whatever obstacles are thrown their way.

"Heart Failure" was no exception.

The opening scene was gritty and realistic. Although the violent-crime-as-training-exercise twist has been done before, somehow it was different here.

The Lrm Interview with Director Taylor Hackford

An Officer and a Gentleman, The Devil’s Advocate and Ray are just three of the movies in director Taylor Hackford’s illustrious career, although his one Oscar was for a short film he made much earlier in his career.

For Hackford’s latest movie, The Comedian, he directs Robert De Niro as Jackie Burke, a veteran comedian and star of a popular old TV sitcom, who is trying to find a new lease on life, which actually ends up with him being thrown in jail for assaulting a heckler. While doing community service, he meets Leslie Mann’s Harmony and he shares with her his love for stand-up, although her father (Harvey Keitel) doesn’t approve of the relationship.

If you ever wondered whether De Niro can do stand-up comedy, you get a lot of opportunities to see him performing mostly insult comedy ala Jeffrey Ross (who was involved

Gird Your Loins for a "Devil Wears Prada" Musical

Chris here, with exciting Broadway adaptation news. Yes, we've maybe begun to move past eyerolling whenever our favorite movies are cashgrabbed into a stage musical and are occassionally excited about some prospects. The Devil Wears Prada seems like a more natural fit for Broadway (and long rumored). It also just landed some quite credible talent: composer Elton John and scribe Paul Rudnick.

If you're worried about an instant classic like Prada being bastardized, look no further than how Elton John turned Billy Elliot into both a financial and creative success on the stage. Paul Rudnick has given us such gay classics as Jeffrey, Addams Family Values, and In & Out, so don't expect the hilarity to be diminished either. While there is not an arrival date yet, the announcement of their involvement is all we need to confirm that this adaptation is really happening and will be a gay old time.

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical Targets Broadway With Elton John, Paul Rudnick

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Musical Targets Broadway With Elton John, Paul Rudnick
Fox Stage Productions’ brewing musical adaptation of “The Devil Wears Prada” has locked down two key members of its creative team, signing Elton John and Paul Rudnick to write the stage version of the 2006 Fox comedy.

Grammy winner John already has the ongoing smash musical “The Lion King” under his belt, as well as Tony-winner “Billy Elliot” and Disney’s “Aida.” Rudnick, a regular contributor to The New Yorker, has written plays including “Jeffrey” and “I Hate Hamlet,” with screenplays “Addams Family Values” and “In & Out” also on his CV.

The “Devil Wears Prada” musical, which has been percolating for a few years now, comes from a producing team led by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions and Rocket Entertainment, the production company whose CEO is John’s husband, David Furnish. In 2013, Fox tapped Broadway veteran McCollum (“Rent,

Returning Friends

Four movies that transcend the “sequel” label, offering reunions with characters we honestly miss. And, hey, did you notice Ridley Scott and/or Harrison Ford have a connection to three of the four?

T2: Trainspotting

In some ways, Trainspotting is not the type of movie that begs a sequel. The frenetic, scatological story of heroine addicts Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) was hailed as an indie gem when it was released in 1996, and needed no follow-up. But on the other hand, who better to catch up with than those chemical-addled misfits? Have they cleaned themselves up? Have they built enjoyable lives? Director Danny Boyle

Unforgettable Ooze: A Look Back at Horror Movies & Slime

  • DailyDead
[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies take a look back at some of the most memorable slimy moments in the horror and sci-fi genres.] In Jean-Paul Sartre’s Being and Nothingness, the philosopher weighs in on the icky properties of slime: “…it sticks to me, it draws me, it sucks at me. Its mode of being is neither the reassuring inertia of the solid nor a dynamism…”

The author described “le visqueux” (viscosity) at length, and reportedly even stared at algae to experience the repulsive feelings associated with the title and theme of his dour novel Nausea.

When it comes to phobias, a fear of slime sits pretty low on the list. Who has even heard of blennophobia compared with more prevalent fears such as agora- or arachnophobia?

Perhaps because it’s one of those fears, like being scared of fire, that is so ubiquitous that it doesn’t really need a psychological condition or fancy verbiage attached to it. After all, it’s pretty rare to experience fire in your day-to-day life (as

‘Million Dollar Duck’ Director: The Duck Stamp Truth Is Stranger Than ‘Fargo’

‘Million Dollar Duck’ Director: The Duck Stamp Truth Is Stranger Than ‘Fargo’
Pop some popcorn and get your ducks in a row. The documentary “The Million Dollar Duck” wings its way to Animal Planet to unveil the real drama behind the Federal Duck Stamp Contest, which was a minor subplot in the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film “Fargo.”

The annual contest, which began in 1934 with the aim to raise money for wildlife conservation, pits artists from around the country in a duck-themed paint-off. After a panel of five judges weigh in, a winner is chosen, and with that victory comes prestige, bragging rights and the promise of financial reward.

He's made friends, enemies, some memorable Eighties movies, loads of Tiger Beat covers, a didn't-see-that-coming comedic comeback and a few notorious sex tapes — and now, Rob Lowe can say that he's truly arrived, because Comedy Central has roasted him. Joining the ranks of Hugh Hefner, Justin Bieber, Flavor Flav and this guy, the former Brat Pack heartthrob willingly stepped up on the dais with a bullseye on his back, as everyone from roastmaster Jeffrey Ross (dressed as Purple Rain-era Prince) to Jewel (?!?) laid into him with the most offensive zingers imaginable.

With the Ghouls in Lawrence, Kansas

Guest writer Bill Shaffer takes us back to Lawrence Kansas in 1989, for a cast and crew re-premiere of Carnival of Souls. By Bill Shaffer Note from Glenn Erickson: I think I first crossed emails with Bill Shaffer around 1998, when I was still the editor for MGM Home Video and just beginning to write MGM Video Savant. Bill sent along info that helped me convince the MGM restorers to include a flashback at the end of Duck You Sucker. Although I didn't find out until much later, Bill was a producer at the PBS station Ktwu in Topeka, Kansas, and had actually interviewed Eli Wallach once about The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Bill became a major source for info and connections when it came time to do the extras for the MGM releases of the Sergio Leone movie; all just to help out. I think the fact that

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2016

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2016
Alright, with a year that sees Gen X'ers losing celebrity icons from their youth in near epidemic proportions, it sure is nice to have movies. Yes, some consider them just mere entertainment, but in their immortal form (which gets better and better every year due to 4K, 5K, and whatever other K somebody wants to transfer them to), these things will honestly never go away. They will live forever. When you realize that we have lost Lemmy, David Bowie, Glenn Fry, Vanity and lord knows who's next, the realization of our own mortality has never been more profound. Which is why the amount of movies turning 30 in 2016 is so crucial.

Yes, we at MovieWeb write a lot of lists. Why is this? Well, aside from the fact that you like lists, they serve a purpose. People inherently want to know that other people agree with them. The fact that this

10 hilarious movie monologues by female characters

10 hilarious movie monologues by female characters
I miss hilarious monologues. Comedy of the 21st century is a science of awkward pauses and ratatat dialogue, and thus the great tradition of cinematic monologuing has been largely resigned to dramas. Worse, it's usually only male characters whose rants are lionized; Al Pacino in "Dog Day Afternoon" or Alec Baldwin in "Glengarry Glen Ross" spring immediately to mind when I think of celebrated speechifying.  So today I'm toasting the opposite of those dead-serious, dude-driven monologues: These are 10 hilarious monologues by actresses. Enjoy. And then enjoy again.  1. Madeline Kahn, "Paper Moon" Trixie Delight just wants to get in the car and have a little fun, but Addie here is holding out. Using some coaxing and a little bit of frustration, Trixie prevails. It is basically ridiculous that we watch movies without Madeline Kahn in them. 2. Alicia Silverstone, "Clueless" Leave it to Cher Horowitz to perfectly understand violence in the media.

‘Extant’ Season 2: Showrunners Talk New Direction, Cast Changes

‘Extant’ Season 2: Showrunners Talk New Direction, Cast Changes
It’s not unusual for a show to make tweaks between seasons, but CBS’ summer sci-fi series “Extant” underwent an extreme makeover for Wednesday’s second season premiere.

Only three of last season’s seven full-time regulars are still with the show (leading lady Halle Berry as astronaut Molly Woods, Pierce Gagnon as her robo-son, Ethan, and Grace Gummer as partially robotic scientist Julie Gelineau), while season one’s male lead, Goran Visnjic, has been replaced by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Entire subplots have been dropped, and the show’s perspective is shifting away from the realm of science, to a pulpier, more action-driven, vibe.

There’s no doubt many of these changes are the result of underwhelming ratings — after bowing to 9.6 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demo, the first season averaged 6.2 million viewers and a 1.1 in 18-49.

They’re also the vision of new showrunners Elizabeth Kruger

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Anesthesia’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Anesthesia’
Various forms of physical and psychic pain are endured by the talky New Yorkers peopling “Anesthesia,” the fifth feature by actor-director Tim Blake Nelson; as unwittingly promised by the title, however, viewers may not feel them very deeply. Opening with a violent jolt, as a benevolent philosophy professor (Sam Waterston) is brutally assaulted near his Upper West Side apartment, the film gets progressively more anodyne as it files through the problems of those closely and tangentially related to him. That the everyone-is-connected ensemble piece has become such a staple of American independent cinema limits the impact of Nelson’s structural revelations; a poetic throughline isn’t immediately obvious, though the profuse dialogue often is. Despite the presence of names like Kristen Stewart and Glenn Close in the cast, “Anesthesia” is unlikely to rouse much commercial attention.
