Keri Russell has The Americans on FX. Scott Foley was recently promoted to series regular for the third season of Scandal. With this casting development, all three actors tangled in Felicity’s love triangle now all have regular TV gigs. God, I miss that WB show ;)
Scott Speedman just landed a lead role on Ryan Murphy’s HBO drama pilot, Open. Hopefully, this job lasts longer than his last television project, ABC’s The Last Resort. On the potential HBO show, Speedman will play Jonathan, a handsome sports agent in the drama that explores sexuality. Given that this is a Murphy project, I fully expect a few gratuitous shirtless scenes. Scott joins the cast which includes Wes Bentley as the handsome but arrogant Evan Foster.
On June 6, 1998 HBO premiered its groundbreaking new comedy, Sex and the City. I’m sure the network, the stars or Darren Star couldn’t have imagined in their wildest dreams the impact Carrie Bradshaw and her crew would have on pop culture. Til this day, I quote multiple references (i.e. post-it) from the show. It’s probably due to watching the entire series over and over again on DVD.
Thanks to costume designer Patricia Field, every woman wanted to mimic the fashions the ladies wore. From oversized flowers, to Manolos, Birkin or Fendi Bags and everything in between, there was no better place for designers to pimp out their products than on the show. In addition to being a fashion powerhouse, SATC was also a critical darling. The show won a Best Comedy Emmy in 2000, while Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon picked up Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress Emmys respectively.
In honor of the cultural impact the show had, I decided to share fifteen of my favorite clips. I don’t want to say its my Top 15 because some of the scenes I was looking for, I couldn’t find. With that being said, the ones I did choose are up there. Pour yourself a Cosmopolitan and walk down memory lane watching these classic moments from Sex and the City.
Just before last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, HBO debuted a new teaser for the upcoming second season of The Newsroom. There isn’t any dialogue, just images of the cast wandering in the desert in slow motion doing their own thing. In the end, they come together as the tagline “Together they stand alone” appears.
I don’t watch the HBO drama, but according to creator Aaron Sorkin, people new like myself won’t have too much trouble picking up what’s going on. During Season 2, the show plans to tackle the 2012 election, the Occupy Wall Street movement and of course all the personal drama of the Atlantis Cable News team. The show returns with brand new episodes starting July 14. Check out the new teaser below.
The highly-anticipated Liberace biopic certainly delivered. Behind the Candelabra scored boffo ratings for HBO. The Steven Soderbergh film delivered 2.4 million viewers in its first airing, making it the most watched HBO film in almost a decade since 2004′s Something The Lord Made. When you factor its second airing Sunday evening, a total of 3.5 million watched the glitzy biopic. Definitely impressive given television viewing typically is less during Memorial Day weekend.
Did you watch Michael Douglas and Matt Damon play gay lovers? Did you love it or loathe it? I was in Seattle and about to watch it, but two friends who saw it earlier said it sucked big time. Truthfully, they have awful taste. LOL. I kid. I’ll probably check it out later regardless of their opinion. Sound off below.
The countdown to HBO’s highly-anticipated Liberace biopic is in the final stretch. In a couple of weeks, we finally get to discover the man behind the sequins. Since this is based on the memoir written by Liberace’s former lover Scott Thorson, it’s also about the man “behind the man” behind the sequins (literally and figuratively *wink*).
If that wasn’t enough usage of the word “behind”, the network recently debuted a brand new featurette giving a behind the scenes look at Behind The Candelabra. That’s a whole lot of behinds. If you’re fascinated by the filmmaking process, you’ll appreciate the videos.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the HBO biopic will delve into the life of the flamboyant pianist played by Michael Douglas and the secret affair he had with Thorson (Matt Damon). The film has been selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival taking place later this month. Check out the videos below.
“Events have been set in motion,” we hear in the trailer. “It is the beginning of the end.” Is HBO hinting this could be the last season of True Blood? I hope not. After a teaser and several #waitingsucks promos, we finally have our first full-length trailer for Season 6 of True Blood and it’s bloody good.
The 90-second trailer promises a season filled with more of your favorite shirtless characters (Alcide & Eric), new faces and hints that things are going to get pretty bloody in Bon Temps, with tensions between the humans and vampires spilling into all-out war. No one is safe this year. There are even rumors that one of the supernatural series’ main characters will meet his untimely demise. If you think it’s Bill, it’s not. He’s back in vampire mode and no longer as the bloody Billith. Watch the trailer below.
Waiting for a new True Blood season truly sucks. Even HBO knows it. The network began unleashing a brand new series of promo videos in anticipation of the sixth season premiere of the supernatural series on Sunday, June 16.
Each clip gives a behind the scenes look filming on location. From the looks of it, each of the main characters will receive their own clip. It began with Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) confronting Eric’s sister in the bloody aftermath of the season finale. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgard) videos then followed. Check out the first three below.
After a couple of teasers, HBO finally releases a full-length trailer for its upcoming Liberace biopic, Behind The Candelabra. As expected, it’s a whole lot of glitter, glamor and gayness. I can’t wait to see it.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike), the HBO film is based on a 1988 memoir, Behind The Candelabra: My Life With Liberace written by Scott Thorson. Matt Damon plays him in the TV movie. It follows his secretive five-year relationship with flamboyant singer Liberace (Michael Douglas). The two met through an introduction by Hollywood film producer Ray Arnett. Liberace then hires Thorson as his companion. ”Why would a grown man want to adopt another grown man?” says someone to Damon in the video.
In the brand new trailer, we see Damon and Douglas fight and get intimate through their tumultuous time together. Douglas showers his young lover with fancy cars, fancier capes and anything money can buy. He even brings him to a plastic surgeon to cosmetically alter him to resemble a younger version of Liberace. The film also stars Dan Aykroyd, Scott Bakula, Debbie Reynolds and Rob Lowe. It premieres on the network on May 26 at 9pm. Watch the trailer below.
