Timeless: Watch Lucy and Wyatt's Cut Pool Kiss From 'Hollywoodland'

Before Timeless‘ Lucy Preston and Wyatt Logan smooched in Hedy Lamarr’s guest house during the Season 2 episode “Hollywoodland,” they were set to kiss in a very different location, under rather different circumstances.

In the deleted scene below — which was later reshot due to production difficulties, co-creator Shawn Ryan explained on Twitter — the time travelers (played by Abigail Spencer and Matt Lanter) lock lips in a pool.

Ha! We had some production difficulties the night we filmed their first kiss in the pool, so we reshot the kiss in the guest house. #Timeless https://t.co/BZW4cqvooT

Timeless Video: Rufus Pretends to Be [Spoiler] During Old Hollywood Trip

When the Timeless trio travels to 1940s Hollywood this Sunday (NBC, 10/9c), Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus are forced to improvise— to varying degrees of success — in order to maintain their cover.

In TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek, a movie studio guard confronts the Time Team and asks to see their IDs. Luckily, Rufus is (kind of) good at making stuff up on the fly. “Do you know who I am? I’m Langston Hughes,” he declares. Unfortunately, he goes on to mistakenly claim that the poet/playwright won the Oscar for co-writing the 1939 film Way Down South. When Lucy corrects him,

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,

11 Questions: Caroline Dhavernas did a scene with a cockroach crawling up her neck, and you’ll never see it

Actor Caroline Dhavernas began her career in French-Canadian television, with roles that probably played big in Quebec but not many other places. After starring in some notworthy indie dramas like Edge Of Madness, however, she finally gained wider recognition on Bryan Fuller’s charming and addictive Wonderfalls, a short-lived delight of a series that almost no one saw when it was on but has found an afterlife as a cult hit. From there, she’s gone on to an impressive career, toggling comfortably between film and TV in projects like Hollywoodland, Breach, Off The Map, and most notably spending three seasons on NBC’s superlative Hannibal. We caught up with her at SXSW, where she was promoting her new indie Easy Living, about a self-destructive door-to-door makeup saleswoman. Also, her new Lifetime series, Mary Kills People, about an ER doctor who covertly moonlights as a Dr. Kevorkian type helping people

How Jennifer Garner Helped Ben Affleck Turn His Life Around
While they separated nearly two years ago, Ben Affleck's estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, has been instrumental in helping the Oscar-winning star get his life back on track after years of struggling with alcoholism.

Affleck took to Facebook on Tuesday to reveal that he'd completed treatment for alcohol addiction, and thanked his wife for her support, writing, "I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do."

Et is taking a look back at the couple's long relationship to see how Garner helped Affleck turn his life around.

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

This is a toughie. In terms of looks, both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s faces remind me of between forty and fifty of my least-favorite classmates during

Ben Affleck’s Batman: The already troubled history of The Batman

Luke Owen looks at the already troubled history of Ben Affleck’s The Batman

It was news that concerned fans of the faltering Dceu when it was confirmed that Ben Affleck will no longer direct The Batman, which is still supposed to be released next year. This bad news about The Batman follows rumours that Justice League is a mess, as is Wonder Woman, and The Flash is getting a page-one re-write following the departure of its second director.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film.

Ben Affleck not directing The Batman anymore

Tony Sokol Jan 31, 2017

The Batman solo movie needs a new director, as Ben Affleck has stepped down as director.

Ben Affleck will not be directing The Batman solo movie for Warner Bros. Affleck will still be playing billionaire Bruce Wayne and his alter ego in the upcoming film.

"There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement.

“Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this

New 'Live by Night' Trailer Thinks Powerful Men Don't Have to Be Cruel

Update 11/11/16: A second trailer for Live By Night has hit online. Check it out at the bottom of the post. Previously: Ten years ago, Ben Affleck resuscitated his sagging movie career, first by giving a finely-tuned performance as George Reeves (also known as Superman) in Hollywoodland and then by making Gone Baby Gone, a moody mystery that was his directorial debut, the following year. While Affleck is still best known as an actor, the films he's directed since then have reflected his growing talents and ambitions. The Town showed he could handle action as well as atmospheric drama and Argo introduced a lighter touch that fit the thrills of the 1980 U.S. hostage crisis in Iran. For his next movie as a director, Affleck is rewinding the clock far deeper into the past...

Ben Affleck is perhaps Hollywood’s biggest and most diverse superstar

As big a star as Ben Affleck is, I’m sure he gets the credit that he deserves. Not only is he an A-list Hollywood talent, he’s an acclaimed and award winning filmmaker. Affleck is part of superhero blockbusters, prestige fare, and everything in between. Throw in his charity work and you have a dynamic star. For a while, he was seen as a bit of a punching bag, but another Oscar and some very solid choices later, that decidedly is no longer the case. He’s rightfully taken his place as one of the industry’s biggest names. I just don’t think he’s always seen in that light, which is a shame. Affleck is a two time Academy Award winner, taking home an Oscar early in his career for co-writing Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon, then winning one a few years ago for producing his latest directional outing Argo.

What does the Dceu tell us about the next Batman movie?

Dan Cooper Sep 6, 2016

Suicide Squad, the new Justice League trailer and the new cut of Batman V Superman dropped a few clues as to Batman's next solo outing...

This article contains spoilers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad.

These days, it seems that the movie business has become a twitchier environment to work in than investment banking - take the upcoming Rogue One for example: chain reactions of ludicrously expensive reshoots are now commonplace in a blockbuster’s life-cycle, often sparked by fan uproar, muted reaction to a newly released trailer or in the case of the newly-released Suicide Squad, the success or failure of an earlier Dceu film.

Perhaps the twitchiest of all studio bigwigs right now must be the suits over at Warner Brothers. Following Suicide Squad’s lukewarm reception by the critics, there has to be some concerns as to the longevity

Elle Driver has acquired world sales to all-female production Below Her Mouth, about a passionate, unexpected fling between two women that changes their lives forever.

It is the latest production from Toronto-based Serendipity Point Films, which previously produced Atom Egoyan’s Remember, Oscar-nominated Barney’s Version and Being Julia, and is made in association with South African outfit Distant Horizon.

With Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice crossing the $530 million mark worldwide, the full main cast, including Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Laurence Fishburne, Holly Hunter, and Diane Lane along with director Zack Snyder did a victory lap on Conan last night and had a grand time with the always hilarious Conan O'Brien. While they spoke on a variety of different aspects regarding the process behind making the critically panned film, the most important topic stemmed from the question many have been asking ever since the film was first announced: why are Superman and Batman fighting in the first place? Well, O'Brien thankfully was able to solve the mystery for the entire world and as it turns out it may have a little something to do with Martha... O'Brien reminded the cast about a small film titled Hollywoodland that Affleck co-starred in with Lane,
