How Well Did 'Sharp Objects' and 'The Act' Portray a Rare Psychological Disorder?

For a relatively new and rare diagnosis, Munchausen syndrome by proxy has garnered quite a bit of screen time.

The syndrome, in which a caretaker either fabricates an illness for a victim or induces it in them, entered the public consciousness only four decades ago, when British doctor Roy Meadow coined the term in a 1977 research paper. But since it made its major pop-cultural debut in Nancy Wright's 1984 true-crime book A Mother's Trial, it has resurfaced onscreen every few years — on TV shows like The X-Files, Law & Order, Scrubs and True Detective and in films including The Sixth Sense, It ...

10 Movies Everyone Forgets Dave Franco Is In

Dave Franco was once simply known as the younger brother of actor James Franco. But over the last few decades, he’s amassed a pretty serious resume of film and television roles that have given him a name in Hollywood unto himself. He’s had a few starring roles in movies, as well as minor appearances, and been part of some A-list ensemble casts. He’s also done voice work, appeared on television series like Scrubs and 7th Heaven, and in TV shorts.

Where Are They Now: The Scrubs Cast

A controversial opinion, but Scrubs may just be the greatest TV show of the last 20 years. The Zach Braff-led hospital comedy-drama had everything, from the lead's hilarious and surreal daydreams to hard-hitting, close to the bone drama. Not many shows could bounce from serious scenes to quotable, laugh-out-loud moments as well as Scrubs did.

The show gained a strong following whilst it was airing, and has only gotten stronger since it ended. It's been 9 years since the show left our screens, so let's take a look at what the cast members have been up in the time since.

Gail Mancuso on Why Her Feature Directorial Debut Had to Be ‘A Dog’s Journey’

Gail Mancuso on Why Her Feature Directorial Debut Had to Be ‘A Dog’s Journey’
Gail Mancuso always thought her feature-film directorial debut would be a comedy, given her background of having directed some of the biggest sitcoms in the history of TV. Instead, she found herself drawn to “A Dog’s Journey” due to the emotional connection she has to animals as well as the messages the film sends to viewers.

“Everything was leaning towards the comedy genre,” Mancuso told TheWrap. “I thought naturally I would do a comedy and I was working on one with Amblin, but then all of a sudden Amblin told me, ‘We have this other one that’s ready to go.’ [‘A Dog’s Purpose’ and ‘A Dog’s Journey’ producer] Gavin Polone knew me from ‘Gilmore Girls’ and we powwowed, and he knew I was an animal lover and had all these dogs, so I read it and, being a woman and loving the Cj story, I knew we could make it into something very special.

‘This Is Us’ Star Mandy Moore on Why She Is ‘Operating at My Best Now’
This Is Us” star Mandy Moore successfully transitioned from a teenage pop star to an adult who juggles singing, acting and, soon enough, producing professionally. On March 25 she is being celebrated for her achievements with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an honor she calls “tremendously humbling.”

“I feel like I’m operating at my best now. I know what I want; I know how to ask for it; I know how to not settle until I get that,” Moore says. “I’m better at stepping up to the plate and acknowledging the value I bring to the plate. I guess that just only comes with the wisdom and clarity of time and age.”

The singer-turned-actress got her first taste of fame at the turn of the century when her debut single “Candy” hit the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Two years later she was dipping her toes in acting

Flashback: John C. McGinley Remembers the Passing of John Candy on Mar. 4, 1994

Chicago – It was 25 years ago today – March 4th, 1994 – that comic actor John Candy died on the set of the film “Wagons East.” It was his 45th feature film, that extended back 21 years.

TV Review: ‘Whiskey Cavalier’

  • Variety
TV Review: ‘Whiskey Cavalier’
The crux of “Whiskey Cavalier” can be found right in its protagonist’s name. “Will Chase” is a purposefully ridiculous wink of a name that tries to be both debonair and very silly all at once, just like the FBI agent (played by Scott Foley) to which it belongs. This isn’t a regular spy drama, “Whiskey Cavalier” insists at every turn, but a fun spy drama that refuses to take itself too seriously. Yes, it’s cheesy, but it’s hard to hold that against the show too much when it’s also half the point.

Despite its hour-long run time, the series was created by David Hemingson (“Just Shoot Me”), produced by Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs”), and directed in part by Peter Atencio (“Key and Peele”), so the pedigree behind it is more comedic than rooted in drama. Its characters banter and give each other (friendly) grief, joking on

Whiskey Cavalier is doomed, and that sucks. The new drama is a bunch of kicky fun, it’s launching off the back of this year’s Oscar telecast, it’s headlined by a former star of basic cable’s biggest show, and it boasts a writing team that includes the guy who created Scrubs.
