House of Cards: Diane Lane & Greg Kinnear Join Revamped Final Season

It's been a long time coming, but House of Cards is really returning for Season 6, and there will be some new additions to the cast.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear have joined the cast of the series as production resumes on its last-ever season. 

Production was initially shut down back in October when series star, Kevin Spacey was fired in the aftermath of a string of allegations of sexual assault and harassment against him. 

Given that Netflix and Media Rights Capital severed ties with Spacey, the fate of the series was up in the air for some time as investigations continued. 

It was recently confirmed that the show will return for eight final episodes, with Robin Wright leading the cast, but there was no indication of how Spacey would be written out. 

Spacey's character, Frank Underwood does die in the book in which the series is inspired by,

36 Photos That Prove Viggo Mortensen Is Everyone's Type
When it comes to men, I don't really have a "type," but I tend toward ruggedly handsome, and I'd never kick a set of chiseled cheekbones out of bed. Hence, my enduring crush on Viggo Mortensen. As far as I'm concerned, Viggo is everyone's type. The chameleon-like actor is devastatingly good-looking, but he resists being the leading man or "movie star." Instead, he chooses challenging roles in all sorts of movies, and he's not afraid to get naked for them, including his recent Oscar-nominated performance in Captain Fantastic. When asked about his penchant for full-frontal nudity in a profile in Esquire, Viggo said he doesn't understand what the fuss is about: "It's just a penis. Every man has one." Over the years, we've seen him engage in a naked knife fight (Eastern Promises), perform cunnilingus on a woman dressed in a cheerleading uniform (A History of Violence), and make sweet,

See This or Die: Director Liz W. Garcia on
Our weekly feature in which a writer answers the question: if you could force your friends at gunpoint to watch one movie or TV show what would it be? Haven't seen “A Walk on the Moon?" Come closer, so I can smack you. It's a smack for your own good, like the one Cher gave Nicholas Cage in “Moonstruck." Haven't seen “Moonstruck?" We need to break up. It's you. "A Walk on the Moon" is not just a gorgeous film about a 1960s housewife's sexual awakening set against the backdrop of Woodstock -- it was directed by the President of the United States, Tony Goldwyn. What Can't he do? Pearl (Diane Lane) and her husband Marty (Liev Shrieber) are parents to petulant, adolescent Alison (Anna Paquin) whom they conceived… wait for it, kids, because this is the educational part of my piece… as teens the first time they had sex

‘Walking Dead’ Q&A: Tovah Feldshuh On Playing Alexandria Leader Deanna Monroe and Rick’s Big Shave

‘Walking Dead’ Q&A: Tovah Feldshuh On Playing Alexandria Leader Deanna Monroe and Rick’s Big Shave
Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season 5, episode 12, titled “Remember.”

The Walking Dead” gang finally made it inside the Alexandria Safe-Zone this week, and what they found was downright shocking. Behind the gates was an utterly peaceful community overseen by Deanna Monroe, played by four-time Tony nominated Broadway veteran Tovah Feldshuh.

Feldshuh, whose extensive resume also boasts an Emmy nominated recurring role on “Law & Order” and films including “Kissing Jessica Stein” and “A Walk on the Moon,” isn’t exactly someone you’d expect to see on AMC’s gory hit. Which is probably why she’s such a perfect fit for a character whose level-headed leadership style couldn’t be more different than Woodbury’s morally bankrupt Governor.

Joining “The Walking Dead” isn’t even the biggest adventure in Feldshuh’s life right now. Variety spoke with the actress about her role

Tcg Holds Annual Gala

The national organization for the American theater, Theatre Communications Group (Tcg), celebrated its annual gala on Monday, Nov. 10 at 583 Park Avenue in Manhattan. In addition to preview performances of “A Walk on the Moon” directed by Michael Greif, and “Immediate Family” directed by Phylicia Rashad (“The Cosby Show”), Tcg honored lighting designer Jules Fisher, Pulitzer-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. “It was Doris’ habit of investing in artists in her own lifetime, many artists who were dismissed in their own time when in fact, they were simply ahead of the times in which they lived,” said program director for the arts Ben Cameron when he accepted the award on behalf of the foundation. “It gives us license to do what we do.” Cameron went on to say Duke donated $50 million to “invest in multi-year, largely fledged fellowships for artists to help them save for their retirements.

‘Ray Donovan’s Liev Schreiber Signs With UTA
Exclusive: UTA has just signed Liev Schreiber. Maybe it’s because I love that Showtime series Ray Donovan and especially Schreiber’s hard-edged title protagonist, but this feels like a real coup for UTA.

April Showers: Diane & Viggo 'Busy Being Free'

waterworks weeknights at 11 in April

Have you ever wondered why people don't talk more about Tony Goldwyn's A Walk on the Moon (1999)?  It's one of those pictures that contains all sorts of stuff people came to love afterwards in embryonic or transformational stages. It was here that Diane Lane practiced the mesmerizingly guilty adulteress act that she'd be Oscar nominated for in Unfaithful (2002). It was the moment when Viggo Mortensen, so often backgrounded in pictures till then, revealed that he was a Star. It was also the mainstream bridge between Anna Paquin's sexually curious wicked child (The Piano) and sexually wicked curious psychic (True Blood) since she played one of her most ordinary roles as a teenager struggling with all the hormones swirling around inside her and outside of her as her screen mother (Lane) was also experiencing a sexual awakening.

DVD Releases 2/1/11

  • Pajiba
Never Let Me Go: "I am positive that somewhere Mark Romanek has created a two-and-a-half, maybe even three hour version of this tale, which is just as poetic and haunting and beautiful as the novel. Unfortunately, the version being screened in theaters is a jagged replica, a shoddy version pockmarked with gaping bullet holes like a rural road sign. It feels like Alex Garland copied pages of the novel on index cards and then riffled them into the viewer's face like a mean-spirited version of 52-Pick Up. Every complexity and nuance that makes the novel worthwhile is simonized until every character is one-note and the love story is thrust sloppily into the forefront. It becomes just another period love triangle where two girls fight over one strange boy, only it's set in a world where they're just meatbags on sale at Costco. Is it touching and moving? Well, of course,

Conviction Exclusive: Interview With Screenwriter Pamela Gray

Above all else, Conviction promises to be a story of human will and triumph. Depicting the struggle of Betty Anne Waters – who fought for eighteen years to have her brother Kenny exonerated from wrongful imprisonment – the film is sure to have impact with strong themes of perseverance, justice, and human emotion. And it’s this very emotion that is apparently at the heart of the story for screenwriter Pamela Gray.

When The Hollywood News caught up with Pamela, her connection to the story was obvious – moved by the real events, she was determined to do right by Betty Anne Waters in conveying the emotions and issues involved on the big screen.

‘The story so impacted me and I wanted to do it justice,’ said Pamela. ‘I felt honored to get the opportunity to tell the story, but I was afraid of disappointing Betty Anne Waters and afraid that I couldn

Conviction Review | Family's All I Got

  • Pajiba
This film shouldn't work. It's got all the hallmarks of...well, a fucking Hallmark Channel film. It's based on the true story of a working-class Massachusetts mother who puts herself through law school so she can overturn her ne'er-do-well brother's conviction after he's been imprisoned for 18 years on a bogus murder charge. The cast contains three actresses I can't fucking stand -- Minnie Driver, Hilary Swank, and Juliette Lewis. It's so paint-by-numbers emotionally exploitative you can still see the black crease marks marked "happy" and "sad." But Boston is the new black, and by harshing up those vowels and dropping the r's and giving the actors free reign with those lovable blue-collar f-bombs, Tony Goldwyn makes Pamela Gray's script fucking work. Their last collaboration resulted in what some folks find one of the most underrated sexual-awakening flicks of all time, A Walk on the Moon. You can see every

Conviction review

Hilary Swank plays Betty Anne Waters in "Conviction", the based-on-true-events film that chronicles the early acceptance of DNA research in U.S. murder trials. At least, that's the sexy marketable aspect of this film, bound to lure the "CSI"/"Law & Order" crowd. But actually, the deep heart of this engaging if conventional Hollywood film is Betty Anne's ceaseless and exhausting quest to free her brother Kenny (Sam Rockwell) from a lifelong murder sentence, of which she is convinced he has been wrongfully convicted. For long stretches of the film, she is the only one who believes him to be innocent - and that properly includes the audience - as director Tony Goldwyn ("A Walk on the Moon") skillfully plants just the correct shades of doubt throughout. Waters must fight the system for her brother, although her efforts may very well be misguided love. Even though "Conviction" involves lawyers and the legal process,
