Sarah Paulson On The Serenity Of 'Carol' And The Frenzy Of 'American Horror Story'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Sarah Paulson has a lot to juggle right now: two Ryan Murphy shows ("American Horror Story: Hotel" and "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson," which premieres in February) and a Todd Haynes movie ("Carol"). They couldn't seem more different, but watching Paulson bounce from one disparate project to the next is no surprise by now. On "AHS," she plays Sally, a dead inhabitant of the mysterious titular hotel whose frazzled ensemble and sadistic addictions are one with Murphy's fictional universe. In "American Crime Story," she plays Marcia Clark, the lead prosecutor in the 1995 Simpson murder trial. And in the 1950s-set "Carol," she plays Abby, the childhood friend of Cate Blanchett's married title character, with whom she is still in love after a previous romantic fling. Got all that? We sat down with Paulson earlier this week to discuss it all. Between “American Horror Story” and “Carol,” and with “American Crime Story” on the horizon, you’ve having an incredible few mo ...

Mary-Louise Parker Finally Addresses Billy Crudup Leaving Her While She Was Pregnant
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Back in 2003, Billy Crudup left his then pregnant girlfriend, Mary-Louise Parker, for a 24-year-old Claire Danes. The "Weeds" actress stayed quiet about the whole situation over the years, letting the public make their own assumptions. But in her new memoir, Dear Mr. You, she offers a glimpse of what she went through after the split.   The book is a collection of 34 letters written by the actress, 51, about the men she's encountered in her life. There's "Dear Risk Teacher," "Dear NASA" and the titular "Dear Mr. You."  Parker (cleverly) doesn't name names in her letters, but she does seemingly allude the aftermath of her breakup with Crudup in one titled, "Dear Mr. Cabdriver."  In the letter (excerpted by Jezebel), the actress goes into detail about a confrontation she had with a cabdriver in NYC -- while seven months pregnant. The cabbie got lost on the way to the actress' doctor's appointment and Parker lost her cool. It's clear she was dealing with plenty of emotions at th ...

The History Of Vibrators Proves We've Come A Long Way Since 1883
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Now that you can buy vibrators at stores like CVS and Target, it's probably safe to say that sex toys are becoming more mainstream than ever. But how did we get here from the first vibrator, invented in 1883 to treat "female hysteria" (now immortalized in a Hugh Dancy-helmed film?) A new infographic produced by LifeStyles condoms charts the history of "personal massagers" and other devices. An estimated one in three American women currently owns one, suggesting that any taboos linked to sex toys is dissipating. "Couples are less willing to tolerate lousy sex," sex therapist and clinical psychologist David Schnarch told USA Today. "People have much higher expectations... Introducing a vibrator into a sexual relationship is now much more common in the U.S. and much less fraught with protecting a man's precious ego than it might have been 15 or 20 years ago."

'Hannibal' Season 2: Cynthia Nixon Joins NBC Drama For Recurring Role
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon has been tapped for a recurring role on NBC's "Hannibal" in Season 2, TVLine reports. Nixon, who has also appeared on "The Big C" and "30 Rock," will reportedly play Kade Prurnell, "an employee of the Office of the Inspector General in FBI Oversight who is investigating the events of the first season and Jack Crawford’s (Laurence Fishburne) culpability." The finale of "Hannibal's" freshman season ended with Hugh Dancy's troubled FBI profiler Will Graham behind bars for murders he didn't commit, while the real culprit, Mads Mikkelsen's devious Hannibal Lecter, remained free. Season 2 is set to return midseason, and creator Bryan Fuller has reportedly reached out to David Bowie to play the role of Hannibal's uncle, Count Robert Lecter. Read More... More on NBC

Will 'Hannibal' Star Mads Mikkelsen Have To Eat His Words?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Danish favourite Mads Mikkelsen is, undoubtedly, a star huge and rising of the big screen, following the recent triple whammy of Bond villain (Le Chiffre in ‘Casino Royale’), Award-winning Cannes Festival-goer (Best Actor, ‘The Hunt’) and romantic lead (‘A Royal Affair’). Now, he’s gobbling up the small screen, too, bringing his celebrated chiselled stillness to the title role of hit NBC drama series ‘Hannibal’, where he plays the urbane psychiatrist hiding an appetite for human flesh. Mads Mikkelsen plays the title role of 'Hannibal' in the NBC series Last time HuffPostUK spoke to Mikkelsen, he admitted to a snottiness for the crop of TV projects, often crime drama series, in his native country on which he cut his teeth. Television was formulaic, unradical, catering to the masses, according to Mads. So what’s changed, and will he eat his words? The answer is, sort of… “We’re getting away with stuff on TV now that we never used to, while the film world’s not gett ...

Claire Danes Worried She'd Never "Want to Work Again" After Cyrus' Birth
US Magazine - over 3 years
Before her son Cyrus' birth on December 2012, Claire Danes had no idea how difficult -- and rewarding -- being a working mother would be. Speaking to Us Weekly at The CW, CBS and Showtime's Summer TCA Party in L.A. on Monday, July 30, the Homeland actress said she's still "figuring out" how to balance her career with motherhood. "I was in my cozy mommy bubble. I was anxious about returning to work. I had all sorts of exaggerated fears, I think the biggest one being, 'Oh god, will I ever want to work again?' And in fact, I do, and it's been great," said the star, who's been married to actor Hugh Dancy since 2009. "But the material is very, very dark and it's so nice to come home and be jarred out of that state by this buoyant butterball." PHOTOS: Claire Danes' fashion-forward red carpet style Danes, 34, often brings her 7-month-old son to set. "Lesli Linka, our director, will hold him and direct," she explained.

Maggie Furlong: The Latest Trend On TV: Characters With Asperger's
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Introducing a character with Asperger's or autism on a TV show is hardly a new phenomenon, but it does seem to be more prevalent in pop culture lately. Is this trend on TV just the new, popular character quirk, or is it a sign of society's efforts to embrace and personify a disorder that has become more and more prevalent? FX's "The Bridge" (premieres Wednesday, July 10 at 10 p.m. ET) is the latest TV show to feature a main character that has Asperger's -- in this case, Diane Kruger's leading lady Det. Sonya Cross -- and while it's unclear if it's necessary to the storytelling in the first few episodes, especially considering that it's never actually stated, it's the reason Kruger signed on for the series, the first TV starring role of her career. "As soon as I started reading up on it, I realized that this was a really daunting undertaking because it's not something you can just put on," Kruger told The Hollywood Reporter. "It's a mind frame that I have to put myself ...

Maureen Ryan: Why 'Hannibal' Was Difficult But Delicious
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
I would not recommend spending a day or two gorging on the first season of "Hannibal," and not just because the very idea of a gluttonous binge would offend the refined sensibilities of the show's title character. And yet I very much hope people catch up on this fascinating NBC drama -- in a measured fashion -- over the summer. The show's first season could be hard to watch at times -- so much so that I understand why some people had to give up on it or couldn't get on board. And yet the very things that made it challenging also made it one of the most compelling broadcast-network shows of the past few years. As the capstone of a fine season that explored the outer limits of identity, manipulation and connection, Thursday's finale was transfixing. All season long, "Hannibal" showed its title character serving a variety of gourmet meals (we still don't know exactly what was in them, and that question added a frisson of horror to each bite the characters took).

Superman Almost Played James Bond
Popeater - over 3 years
Henry Cavill plays Superman in "Man of Steel," and its a role that should catapult him to stardom. "People will stop me and ask for a photo," Cavill told HuffPost Entertainment about his burgeoning star status. "Going to Starbucks, I definitely feel that thing of any minute now someone is going to say something -- then it will be photo bedlam. It hasn't quite hit with its full force yet, but it's definitely changing." As it turns out, however, Cavill could have experienced those photo ops much earlier in his career. The 30-year-old actor was mentioned as possible star for some of the biggest films of the last decade. Ahead, a quick look at the lost roles of Henry Cavill. 1. "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (2005) "Harry Potter" fans went so far as to start an online petition to get Cavill the role of Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," but Robert Pattinson was cast instead. 2.

By Tim Kenneally LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - NBC has given a second season to its serial-killer drama "Hannibal," the network said Thursday.

RENEWED
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Hannibal" has been renewed for a second season, NBC announced today. The order is for 13 episodes, which will debut midseason or later. The Bryan Fuller series, starring Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen and Laurence Fishburne, debuted in April to 4.4 million viewers and a 1.6 rating, maintaining fairly solid numbers despite a timeslot that put it up against CBS' successful "Elementary" and ABC's juggernaut "Scandal." “We’re so proud of Bryan’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “There are many great stories still to be told.” While "Hannibal" was awaiting renewal or cancellation news, other outlets, like Amazon and a cable network, had expressed interest in picking the show up, Deadline reported earlier this month. In a recent interview with E! Online, Fuller admitted that the odds were in their favor for renewal: "I know that we are a cost-efficient ...
