Can Bill Hader Turn “Barry” Into the Next Comedic “Breaking Bad?”

So the show starring Bill Hader, Barry, is believed to be the next big hit like Breaking Bad? So far from the trailer it looks like the uninspired story about a hitman, which would be a far cry from the kind of success story that was Breaking Bad, at least from the standpoint of the main character. Maybe it’s alluding to the fact that the ex-marine is finding no joy in his life and decides to make a big change that will somehow derail his chances at the dream he wants to pursue as a member of the La theater

50 Cent Wins Big When Judge Dismisses 'Power' Lawsuit

  • TMZ
50 Cent just won a huge legal victory when a judge threw out a lawsuit where he was accused of ripping off someone else's work to create his hit show, "Power." Two guys wrote a play called "Dangerous" which they claimed was eerily like "Power." The story line involved a drug dealer who engaged in violence, launders money and attempts to stave off prosecution. The court said these are common elements that are in the public

Bleak New Trailer For Black Mirror Season 4 Confirms December Premiere

The fourth season of Black Mirror is only three weeks away.

That’s the news coming out of Netflix this afternoon, after the online giant confirmed that six new episodes – six bleak, technology-driven nightmares – will be available to consume from December 29th. A suitably chilling trailer accompanied today’s media dump (see above), which cuts between each new chapter in Charlie Brooker’s Emmy-winning anthology series.

From the Jodie Foster-directed “Arkangel” to “Metalhead,” the show’s first ever black-and-white episode (see below), Black Mirror season 4 looks set to deliver another dose of unmissable drama. It’s vintage Brooker, too: happiness is fleeting and, supposedly, everything happens for a reason. Other instalments include “Crocodile,” “Hang the DJ,” “Black Museum,” and the Star Trek-inspired “USS Callister,” which stars Jesse Plemons and Jimmi Simpson of Fargo and Westworld, respectively.

Bryan Cranston Terrorizes James Corden as The Elf on the Shelf

Bryan Cranston Terrorizes James Corden as The Elf on the Shelf
The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by having Bryan Cranston fill James Corden with fear.  The Late Late Show aired a sketch on Monday in which Cranston gave the host a freaky (but funny) holiday gift.  The video starts with Corden receiving an Elf on The Shelf toy from the Breaking Bad star. But instead of looking like the traditional Christmas toy, the doll resembled a miniature version of Cranston. "He's quite a handsome fellow no?" Cranston says in the clip. For those unfamiliar with the Elf on the Shelf, the elf serves as Santa's eyes and ears and tells Mr. Claus when a child has been naughty or nice. Cranston's version promises to do the same and report...

The Top 10 TV Shows of 2017
Television is a medium known for its personal connections and incomparable scope. The same set of characters can tell stories for decades, visiting your home upwards of 20 times per year for so many years they feel like family members. Daunting at the onset and comforting in the long-run, the best TV shows are the ones that stick with you because you stuck with them.

As more and more programming floods the airwaves, competition is rising. Seasons don’t have as many episodes. Shows don’t run for as many years. Greetings are savored because goodbyes are often just around the corner — or, at least, they feel like it.

Bryan Cranston Is Santa’s Most Annoying Elf on the Shelf (Video)

Bryan Cranston Is Santa’s Most Annoying Elf on the Shelf (Video)
James Corden’s sketch with Bryan Cranston as his all-seeing Elf on the Shelf could have gone in a much-darker direction, right “Breaking Bad” fans? The man best-known for playing Walter White got his jollies in on Monday, keeping an eye on the “Late Late Show” host’s every move for the big guy up North. You know Santa Claus gets these reports directly, so stuffing the doll into a blender and chopping Cranston up probably didn’t land Corden on the “Nice” list. That wasn’t the only fisticuffs in the CBS sketch. In a fit of rage (and

‘Black Mirror: USS Callister’ Trailer: Jesse Plemons Does His Best Captain Kirk Impression in ‘Star Trek’ Homage

‘Black Mirror: USS Callister’ Trailer: Jesse Plemons Does His Best Captain Kirk Impression in ‘Star Trek’ Homage
Time to boldly go into another one of Charlie Brooker’s mind-bending story worlds — though this one looks awfully familiar. Based on the trailer for “USS Callister,” one of the upcoming installments of Season 4, it’s quite clear that for at least one episode, “Black Mirror” is blasting off into a future reminiscent of “Star Trek.”

“USS Callister” doesn’t just appear to be paying tribute to “Star Trek” in general, though — from the sets to the costumes to Jesse Plemons’ very deliberate enunciation, Brooker, co-writer William Bridges and director Toby Haynes (“Doctor Who,” “Sherlock”) seem clearly inspired by the 1960s original series, which has remained iconic for the last 50 years.

Adding “Black Mirror” to his already impressive resume (which also includes “Breaking Bad,” “Friday Night Lights,” and “Fargo” Year 2), Plemons takes the captain’s chair for the feature-length episode.

‘The Post’: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Favorite Cast’ Has Received At Least 58 Emmy Nominations
Sometimes, even Steven Spielberg has trouble assembling his dream cast. But that wasn’t the case with his latest film, the historical drama “The Post.” At a Q&A on Monday night hosted by the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, Spielberg told the audience that he’d been able to get every single one of his first choices. No small feat, considering that the turnaround time on the movie clocked in at just nine months, dating from Spielberg’s first acceptance of the script to its first November screenings.

“So often when I make a movie, I have my first choices, and I don’t always get my first choices sometimes due to availability or sometimes actors don’t like the script enough to say yes to me or to anybody,” he said. “But everybody I wanted in the movie, they were available and they all said yes.
