Damon Lindelof Says HBO’s Watchmen TV Show Won’t Be A Direct Adaptation

Ever since it was announced that Lost creator Damon Lindelof would oversee an adaptation of Alan Moore’s beloved DC comic Watchmen into an HBO series, updates have been few and far between.

Last we heard, the Lindelof project was supposed to start filming its pilot episode in March of this year but has heretofore abandoned that plan. While it’s still scheduled to begin production sometime in 2018, the fandom is eager for a much-needed briefing. Thankfully, Lindelof heeded enthusiasts’ clamoring, obliging their thirst for details in a recent sit-down on Bookish with Sonya Walger.

The architect behind one of TV’s most original and daring shows in recent history – The Leftovers – disclosed to the titular host that his project might not be a direct adaptation of the Watchmen comic, likening his take on Moore’s deconstructed parody of superhero-dom to Noah Hawley’s Fargo.

“[Adapting] may be the right word,

The Muse: How Actress Cristin Milioti Made Her Mark Playing Unusual Roles
Despite any attempts to the contrary, Cristin Milioti has no interest in being put into a box. In the course of her relatively brief career, she's taken on a wider variety of roles and disciplines than many actors do in decades. She's made her mark on television, in movies and onstage, playing instantly iconic (and wildly different) characters in Black Mirror, Fargo, How I Met Your Mother, and the Broadway musical Once, to name a few. Currently, she's recording her first album. And this is only the beginning.

The 22-year-old stripped down for a sexy Playboy photo shoot as she revealed she wants to become an actress. Clara is the eldest of McGregor’s four children with ex Eve Mavrakis, who the actor filed for divorce from in January, citing irreconcilable differences.

“Comme ci comme ça,” Clara wrote on social media alongside two photos of herself posing nude in bed, referencing the tattoo she has underneath her breast, which is visible in one of the revealing snaps.

‘All About Nina’ Film Review: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Kills as a Stand-Up With Issues

‘All About Nina’ Film Review: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Kills as a Stand-Up With Issues
The Tribeca Film Festival seems like the ideal place to debut “All About Nina,” a scabrous drama about comedy and other serious matters.

In a festival-filled world, Tff has often struggled to find its identity. In recent years, its greatest strengths have included an increasingly impressive curation beyond cinema: panels and interviews, concerts and retrospectives, television premieres and virtual reality arcades.

As for films, the experience is more akin to sifting for rough gems. And we’ve got one here. First-time feature director Eva Vives (who co-wrote “Raising Victor Vargas”) has a lot to say and finds some provocative ways to express it all. A major late-act revelation, in particular, is likely to be a significant talking point after screenings.

But the movie’s deepest emotional impact comes from an electrifying star turn by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The reliably excellent Winstead takes charge from the moment she swaggers on screen as Nina, a 33-year-old stand-up whose brutal cynicism hides a lifetime’s worth of secrets.

For one thing, she’s not quite as together as she appears on stage. She vomits after every show from nerves, drinks way too much far too often, and is involved in an abusive relationship with a married cop (“Gossip Girl”‘s Chace Crawford, convincingly scummy).

She’s ready to leave her unhappy New York life behind, though, and gets her agent (Angelique Cabral, “Life in Pieces”) to set her up in La. Soon she’s crammed into a Mini Cooper, moving in with a spiritual writer named Lake (Kate del Castillo, “The 33”), and attending a mystical fundraiser for a cat sanctuary. “I’m water-based,” Lake gently explains, by way of introduction. “I’m whiskey-based,” Nina responds, as baffled as any New Yorker would be.

Watch Video: How Mary Elizabeth Winstead Semi-Hijacked 'Fargo' (Exclusive)

Things seem to pick up when she meets Rafe (Common), who would like to be her first real boyfriend. But the odds that both of them will traverse an inevitably rocky road seem increasingly slim.

The intensely charismatic Common should be cast as a lead more often, but he’s poorly served here by an ill-conceived role that undermines his character right away. Since Nina and Rafe’s relationship is half the story, this does leave the movie feeling a little lopsided. It’s as if Vives knew that a conventional romantic arc was too constraining for her complicated heroine but felt obliged to make the effort anyway.

The strongest parts of the movie, in fact, are those populated entirely by women. An amusingly new-age argument between Lake and her girlfriend (Clea DuVall) and a wrenching phone call between Nina and her mom (Camryn Manheim) are highlights.

But it’s an underplayed moment in which Nina and several other female comics audition for an “SNL”-style show that exemplifies Vives’ most interesting intentions: to take us where we’ve been before, from a new perspective. (An underused Beau Bridges plays the Lorne Michaels-esque producer.) As the ladies sit around making each other laugh and cutting each other down, we realize how often we’ve seen similar scenes — and how rarely with women.

There’s a much trickier and more dramatic segment later in the film, which isn’t as deftly written. But it is played with stunning power by Winstead, who fully sells every up, down and reversal Nina experiences. Though the material isn’t quite ready for primetime, Winstead once again proves herself a major player.

Hooray for Holly-Weed: 19 Celebrity Stoners to Celebrate 420 With (Photos)

Hooray for Holly-Weed: 19 Celebrity Stoners to Celebrate 420 With (Photos)
Hollywood stars don’t shy away from being 420-friendly. Here are the biggest names in entertainment who like to roll up a blunt or hit a bong — no matter what the date is.

From Snoop Dogg to Dawn Wells — if you’re commemorating the marijuana enthusiast’s national holiday for 420, you have friends in high places.

Robert Mitchum: The O.G. of celebrity stoners was arrested on marijuana charges in 1948 and spent two months behind bars.

Willie Nelson

The Red-Headed Stranger is notoriously no stranger to the green and announced that he was launching his own strain of premium weed last year. We have no idea what took him that long.

Dawn Wells

Mary Ann from “Gilligan’s Island” got popped for pot in 2008.

Cameron Diaz

The “There’s Something About Mary” star has admitted that she used to buy weed from Snoop Dogg. Which leads us to …

Snoop Dogg

We’d have to be completely high to leave him off of this list.

Justin Timberlake

The “20/20 Experience” singer says he smokes out because “sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off.”

Roseanne Barr

The “Roseanne” star, who smokes to alleviate her glaucoma, got into the weed biz in 2016 by investing in the dispensary Roseanne’s Joint. She even famously got stoned an old episode of her show.

Chace Crawford

The former “Gossip Girl” star gave people plenty to wag their tongues about when he was arrested for marijuana possession in 2010.

Frances McDormand

When she’s not appearing in awesome projects like “Fargo” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” McDormand serves as a High Times cover girl.

Seth Rogen

The “Pineapple Express” actor not only knows his way around a bong, he’s named names when it comes to his famous smoke-out pals.

Fargo Actress Carrie Coon Confirmed As Infinity War’s Proxima Midnight

Proving that Thanos isn’t the only villain of Avengers: Infinity War, it’s now been revealed that Fargo and The Leftovers actress Carrie Coon will play the part of Proxima Midnight, a key member of the nefarious Black Order.

Radio Times has the scoop, confirming that Coon provides the voice of Thanos’ leading henchman – or henchwoman, really – alongside the telekinetic Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), Cull Obsidian (Avatar‘s Terry Notary) and the sinister Corvus Glaive. Still no word on who’s playing the latter, leading many to conclude that said role actually belongs to Peter Dinklage, given the Game of Thrones mainstay was previously confirmed for Infinity War.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo refused to be drawn on the identity of Glaive’s voice actor, but the former did confirm Coon’s involvement during a recent chat with Radio Times:
