Margo Martindale very rightly won a Supporting Actress Emmy for her indelible portrayal of backwoods crime queen Mags Bennett on JUSTIFIED in that series’ second season. Since then, the prolific Texas-born actress appeared on two short-lived TV shows, CHAOS and A GIFTED MAN, before playing opposite Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper in the feature film AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. In 2013, Martindale took on two television roles that are still ongoing. One is KGB spymaster Claudia, aka Granny, on FX’s THE AMERICANS, which begins its second season Feb. 26. The other is Carol Miller on CBS’s half-hour comedy THE MILLERS, Thursdays […]Read On »

For its first four seasons, THE LEAGUE, the half-hour comedy created by Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, was a staple for FX Network. Now FX is moving THE LEAGUE to its new outlet FXX for the show’s fifth season, which debuted Wednesday September 4 at 10:30 PM, following fellow FX transfer IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, which is now on FXX Wednesdays at 10 PM. Asked about the move, Paul Scheer, who plays THE LEAGUE’s much-bullied Andre, quips, “I was just happy that FXX isn’t a p**n channel. For a little bit, I was confused we’d be there.” Scheer, a native […]Read On »

Weiss, Jay Scherick, David Ronn, Karey Kirkpatrick Director: Raja Gosnell Distributor: Sony Release Date: July 31, 2013 Rarely do I get to sit with my 10-year-old daughter and enjoy a movie equally as much as she does. But, alas, I did just that watching THE SMURFS 2. A fun and tender story about choosing how you want to live your life and that family isn’t necessarily something you are born into. SMURFS 2 opens with the diabolical Gargamel (Hank Azaria) plotting to […]Read On »

With GLEE entering its fourth season with storylines set in Ohio and New York, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly reveals this new structure has worked out quite nicely with the three scripts he’s read so far. “I’m very happy with how seamless it is,” says Reilly. “There is a thematic linkage between the two. I think it’s going to be an event for fun for the audience not knowing who is going to show up when. We have a core of returning character we will be servicing every week and limited deals with some actors joining here or there.” Reilly […]Read On »

With “Prom-asauras” there are still remnants of the things that frustrate long-time fans (myself included), but it’s made up by […]Read On »
