Nina Sosanya (David Brent: Life on the Road, Love Actually), Katherine Kelly (The Night Manager, Happy Valley) and Trevor Eve (Death of a Farmer, Troy) round out the Season 5 cast of Cinemax and Sky’s reboot of Strike Back. They join previously announced new series stars Warren Brown as “Mac” McAllister, Daniel MacPherson as Samuel Wyatt, Roxanne McKee as Natalie Reynolds and Alin Sumarwata as Gracie Novin. Filming has begun on the new season — its sixth overall and fifth… »
A curious thing has happened to indie movies since the year 2000. In the ’90s, practically all the heroes were hit men. Now, they hold some of the quirkiest jobs imaginable — baking specialty pies (“Waitress”), building bathtubs (“The Voices”), writing greeting-card poetry (“500 Days of Summer”), etc. — in movies where a quirky profession serves as a stand-in for an actual personality.
The title character in Dito Montiel’s “The Clapper” takes the cake: He makes a living as a professional audience member, popping up in countless infomercials too “ooh” and “aah” and occasionally ask questions like, “Are you trying to tell me with no money down I can get a house?” Unlike the hundreds of would-be actors who move to Los Angeles every year with dreams of becoming stars, Eddie Krumble (Ed Helms) and best friend Chris (Tracy Morgan) are content to be invisible, doing their best to look nondescript, while mixing »

It’s been 30 years since we last saw James Wilby and Hugh Grant fall in love on the screen in James Ivory’s beautiful gay-themed film “Maurice.” Now, Cohen Media Group —which has acquired 30 titles from the Merchant Ivory Productions library— is releasing a brand new 4K restoration of the 1987 romantic drama, which will screen next month at New York City’s historic Quad Cinema, following the theater’s reopening this Friday, April 14.
Based on E.M. Forster’s 1971 novel by the same name, “Maurice” followed the story of two undergraduate Cambridge students, Maurice (Wilby) and Clive (Grant), who fall in love at a time when any reference of homosexuality at the English university was omitted and same-sex relationships was punishable by the law.
The film also starred Rupert Graves and Ben Kingsleyco. »

He has cornered the market in irascible but lovable Englishmen, so why is the actor still so anxious about his work, his looks – and death?
Around halfway through my interview with Bill Nighy, it becomes apparent that he hasn’t actually seen the film he is giving the interview to promote. Actually, it doesn’t become apparent at all, he just tells me. He hasn’t seen Their Finest, a second world war-based comedy drama in which he stars alongside Gemma Arterton, because he never watches anything he is in: “God, no.” He thinks he might have seen all of Love Actually, the film that made him a bankable movie star at the age of 54, “at one time or another”, but that seems to have more to do with its ubiquity on Christmas television than any great desire to watch it: last year, ITV3 appeared to show nothing else from »

The Oscar winner will be partnering up with Bear Grylls for the upcoming NBC Red Nose Day Special to raise awareness of live-saving vaccines. Roberts and Grylls will travel to Kenya and traverse hazardous terrain to deliver the vaccines to a remote village — all under a time limit.
The two must navigate dense underbrush and avoid the wildlife — like crocodiles and hippos — as they race to the village while having to keep the vaccines cold.
And that’s just one part of the three-hour extravaganza airing May 25 on NBC. In the exclusive video above, »

In the 14 years since British rom-com classic Love Actually was released, a majority of the film’s fans have found nothing weird in the behavior of lovesick Mark (Andrew Lincoln), who’s infatuated with the new wife (Keira Knightley) of his best friend (Chiwetel Ejiofor). In one of the movie’s (often-parodied) touchstone scenes, Mark declares his unrequited love by holding large handwritten cards.
In an EW online poll last year, 66 percent of voters said that Mark was a lovestruck sap rather than a stalker creep. That’s not how Lincoln himself saw it. “In one of the most romantic movies of all time, »

Warning: This post contains major spoilers from Grimm‘s series finale.
Granted, that detail — that Nick must willingly give Zerstörer the magic stick in order for the otherworldly demon to complete his all-powerful staff and bring on the apocalypse — doesn’t make itself apparent until the eleventh hour, when our hero thinks he’s lost everyone he ever cared about.

Fourteen years after starring in ‘Love Actually’ as widower Daniel, Liam Neeson is reflecting on his late wife, actress Natasha Richardson, and the parallels between the classic role and his own life’s “tapestry”. “It’s 14 years ago now and we’ve all lived lives.

Just six years after the film’s debut, Neeson’s own wife – actress Natasha Richardson – died following a ski accident.
After reuniting with Love Actually‘s star-studded cast for a Red Nose Day special, Neeson opened up to Entertainment Weekly in its newest issue about how re-visiting the past on-screen allowed him to reflect off-screen.

If there are two words I haven’t been able to stop hearing lately it’s Love Actually. This was a movie that took place in 2003 and captured the hearts of millions. Many consider it to be one of the better romantic films in history. No, I’m being serious. Love Actually sees nine intertwined stories examining the complexities of the one emotion that connects us all: love. Among the characters explored are David (Hugh Grant), the handsome newly elected British prime minister who falls for a young junior staffer (Martine McCutcheon), Sarah (Laura Linney), a graphic designer whose devotion to her

Anyone paying attention to the U.K.’s Red Nose Day/Comic Relief charity drive on Friday can likely tell you who was accounted for in Richard Curtis’ delightful short film Red Nose Day Actually.

The collapse of the Gop’s American Health Care Act provided plenty of material for Late Night host Seth Meyers, who examined the defeat Monday in a new “Closer Look” segment.
In the video above, Meyers takes Republicans to task for failing to follow through on their long-promised “repeal and replace” plan for Obamacare.
“They campaigned on this for seven years, ran on it in four consecutive national elections and voted on it more than 60 times in Congress,” he explains. “And now, it turns out that »

Red Nose Day or Comic Relief is always looking to push the boundaries when it comes to creating comedy genius and it was writer / director Richard Curtis who stole the show in the charity fundraiser to reunite the cast of Love Actually 13 years since it was first released.
The likes of Andrew Lincoln, Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Rowan Atkinson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Colin Firth and Bill Nighy to name but a few all came back reprise their roles from the classic 2003 Christmas movie.
The extended twelve minute short-film showed off many of our favourites giving a little insight into where there lives have taken them 13 years on. During the final scene you can see some familiar faces including Kate Moss and YouTube star Caspar Lee lurking behind Martine McCutcheon as she looks on to now husband Hugh Grant as he’s returned to be »

The much-hyped Comic Relief sequel to Richard Curtis’s film was a real let-down
It’s a shame, but the Comic Relief Red Nose Day Actually reprise of Love Actually was Guff Actually. The cast was there, everyone from Hugh Grant, Bill Nighy and Colin Firth to Keira Knightley, Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neeson and more. So you could applaud the logistics and goodwill of pulling it all together.
However, it was all lousy jokes and texted-in performances and looked as though it had been cobbled together by fourth formers as an end-of-term project. Even at just 12 minutes, it felt far too long.
