Gal Gadot Strips Down in First Keeping Up with the Joneses Clip
Suspecting something is off with her new neighbor, Karen Gaffney (Isla Fisher) decides to spy on Natalie Jones (Gal Gadot) in a new clip from Keeping Up with the Joneses, in theaters October 21. What Karen doesn't quite realize is that Karen is an actual, real-life spy. After following her to a Bloomingdale's fitting room, Natalie surprises her by coming out of the fitting room wearing some skimpy lingerie.

20th Century Fox debuted this first clip on YouTube earlier today, arriving more than three months after the first trailer debuted. This spy comedy certainly will have quite the challenge when it opens in mid-October, during one of the most crowded weekends of the year. Keeping Up With the Joneses will hit theaters on October 21, going up against Paramount's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Universal's Ouija: Origins of Evil, Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween and PureFlix's I'm Not Ashamed.

Perfect Neighbors Are Perfect Spies In Greg Mottola’s ‘Keeping Up with the Joneses’ With John Hamm, Gal Gadot & More [Watch]

It’s been about five years since Greg Mottola made a feature-length movie, 2011’s sci-fi comedy “Paul,” but the “Superbad” director has remained busy directing the HBO movie “Clear History” starring Larry David, Jon Hamm and more. After that came several episodes of Aaron Sorkin’s shortlived HBO show “The Newsrooom.” But Mottola has a new movie […]

Longtime 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Ep Talks "Getting the Band Back Together" for Season 9: "It Won't Be Long"

Longtime 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Ep Talks
Now that Larry David has announced the return of Curb Your Enthusiasm, fans of his beloved HBO series have a lot of questions. Jeff Schaffer, who is David's right-hand man for the newly announced season nine, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter to answer some of them. Namely, why now? The Seinfeld creator — who has spent his time since Curb pouring ideas into HBO's Clear History, Broadway's Fish In the Dark and a multitude of Saturday Night Live appearances, among other things — has always been carrying around his notebook and jotting down ideas, says Schaffer.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Returning for Season 9 on HBO

Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will return for Season 9 on HBO, the premium cabler announced Tuesday.

“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of ‘Curb’ and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming.

Asked why he decided to come back, David said, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”

The hit comedy stars “Seinfeld” co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. With 80 episodes to date, the show is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy or drama series. David also starred in and co-wrote the 2013 HBO Films presentation “Clear History.”

No details on a Season 9 premiere date or additional casting have been announced at this time. The show hasn’t aired new episodes since 2011, but back in 2012, HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler told reporters at the annual Television Critics Assn. press tour that David “essentially has carte blanche with us … And when he wants to come back and do ‘Curb,’ we’d be thrilled.”

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Season 9 and Movie Planned by Larry David?

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Season 9 and Movie Planned by Larry David?
When most shows are renewed, fans can normally expect to see them back at the same time the next year. HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, however, is not most shows, since series creator and star Larry David has a unique deal with the cable network, that essentially allows him to deliver a new season whenever he pleases. The show hasn't aired new episodes since Season 8 back in 2011, but it seems that Larry David is getting ready for Season 9.

Sports radio DJ Chris Law revealed on his Twitter account last week that Curb Your Enthusiasm writer Jeff Schaffer recently met with Larry David, where both a new season and a movie were discussed. Last month, during the TCA Summer Press Tour, HBO president Michael Lombardo revealed that he recently ran into Larry David over the summer at a Broadway premiere, where he teased a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Veep’s Matt Walsh and Workaholics’ Maribeth Monroe join Keeping Up With the Joneses

Keeping Up With the Joneses’ already-hilarious cast has just gotten a whole lot funnier. Word has it Matt Walsh and Maribeth Monroe have just joined the upcoming 2016 Greg Mottola-helmed comedy.

Keeping Up With the Joneses follows a suburban couple who become suspicious of their new extremely attractive neighbors, who they later discover to be undercover agents. According to THR, Monroe and Walsh will play one of the couples already living in the neighborhood.

Walsh and Monroe join a comically charged cast including Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot. Both actors, who already have strong comedy backgrounds, will be sure to bring a nice dynamic to the set as a neighboring couple. Monroe has worked on shows ranging from Key and Peele to Modern Family, Robot Chicken to Workaholics while Walsh has worked on films like The Hangover & Hits and shows like Upright Citizens Brigade, Reno 911! and most recently HBO’s Veep.

The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!

In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her!

2014 Creative Arts Emmy Winners include 'Sex,' 'Scandal' co-stars
The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

Curtains On Enthusiasm – Larry David Heads To Broadway

Details have been revealed about the much-mooted Broadway debut of popular curmudgeon and co-creator of Seinfeld Larry David. Fish In The Dark, written by David, showcases the Curb Your Enthusiasm star in a role that shockingly isn’t a million miles from what he does best. Throw in a plot, so to speak, about a family bereavement and you have all the ingredients for a comedy blacker than Marilyn Manson’s duvet cover. Unless he’s planning a deviation into dramatic territory (highly unlikely but we can’t rule it out) this looks to be more of the trademark Larry-based calamity, though the chance to see this brilliant performer spew venom live makes the production a hot ticket from the off.

David famously put himself on the New York stage in a fictionalized capacity opposite David Schwimmer in The Producers via Curb, so Fish In The Dark has him putting

James Levine adds his magic touch to music for 'American Horror Story: Coven' (exclusive video)

James Levine adds his magic touch to music for 'American Horror Story: Coven' (exclusive video)
The third installment of Ryan Murphy’s "American Horror Story" was a charm for James Levine as he reaped his first Emmy nomination for composing the music score to FX’s "Coven." -Break- Levine submitted the miniseries supremely competitive finale "The Seven Wonders" to Emmy judges, which opens with Stevie Nicks performing her original song of the same title. Levine admitted that having his music follow such a legend made him a bit nervous: "You feel there’s a responsibility. You want to make sure that you can stand by it 100% and just know that you've literally been as truthful and honest with your music as she has with hers." Luckily, he doesn't have to worry about Steve Nicks competing alongside him in the race for Best Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special (Original Dramatic Score), but he does face other stiff competition: Ludovic Bource ("Clear History&quo.

Larry David Wants More Curb Your Enthusiasm, But He’ll Have to Let You Know When

  • Vulture
The good news is Larry David wants to do more Curb Your Enthusiasm. The bad news is that he’s not getting started any time soon. The last new episode of the show aired back in 2011 when season eight concluded, and instead of doing another quickly, David wrote and starred in the very Curb-like TV movie Clear History. (It was pretty, pretty, pretty good!)Fortunately, David’s not done with the show just yet. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told reporters at the network’s summer press tour session today that the two recently bumped into each other at an event where David told Lombardo about his plans for the rest of the year. Those plans did not include more Curb. “I said, ‘So, David, should I emotionally get Curb out of my head?’ And he goes, ‘No, no, no, no, no,’” Lombardo said. HBO’s willing to be patient.

Kate Hudson's Ridiculously Flashy Jumpsuit: Gotta Have It or Make It Stop?

Kate Hudson's Ridiculously Flashy Jumpsuit: Gotta Have It or Make It Stop?
Somewhere Liza Minnelli is salivating. That comment alone suggests that this bedazzled one-piece isn't exactly what we expect to see on Kate Hudson. The boho-loving blonde is known for her sexy minis and edgy gowns, not her Dynasty-style jumpsuits. Is the Clear History star entering the golden years of her fashion life or are black tie granny looks the new hot-young-thing wear? There is much about this Armani Privé look to totally adore. The pale purple color is absolutely gorgeous against this California native's lightly bronzed skin. Horizontal striped sparkles are about the smartest thing a woman can wear to lengthen every line on her body, and we're even slightly enamored by the...

American Themes Dominate New Crop of TV Movies and Miniseries

American Themes Dominate New Crop of TV Movies and Miniseries
A president is assassinated. Unspeakable evil unfolds in the wintry Midwest. An elderly woman makes a reflective trip to her hometown. Society is ravaged by a plague and the government doesn’t act. Two Depression-era criminals hunker down for a last, brutal stand against the law.

What do these five stories have in common? “Killing Kennedy,” “Fargo” (pictured above, in production), “The Trip to Bountiful,” “The Normal Heart,” “Bonnie and Clyde” — all stand excellent chances of landing Emmy nominations in the newly separated Outstanding Movies and Outstanding Miniseries categories.

And in an important programming trend, all of these shows (along with the sadly ineligible PBS adaptation of “Barrymore”) are archetypal American tales with American characters and themes at their heart.

“On the surface, you wouldn’t think they have much to do with each other,” says “Bountiful” director Michael Wilson, who directed the Horton Foote play on Broadway in 2013 and

‘Saturday Night Live’ Alum Bill Hader to Develop HBO Comedy Series
Saturday Night Live” alum Bill Hader has inked a deal to develop a comedy series for HBO.

Pact calls for Hader to write and star in a vehicle for the pay cabler, but there’s no word yet on specifics.

Hader logged eight years on NBC’s “SNL,” signing off last year. Since then he’s done a few TV guest shots, on “The Mindy Project” and “Portlandia,” and he was seen in HBO’s Larry David telepic “Clear History.” He’s working with fellow “SNL” alums Seth Meyers and Fred Armisen on producing and starring in a limited-run mockumentary project for IFC, “American Documentary.”

On the big screen, Hader’s recent credits include Spike Jonze’s “Her” and the teen comedy “The To Do List.”

Hader’s pact with HBO was first reported by Deadline. He’s repped by UTA and Odenkirk/Provissiero Talent Management.
