_rbolivia68dj1_hires1After the events of last week, it’s a sure bet that things are going to be heating up on tonight’s episode of the hit FOX adventure series GOTHAM. With Bullock and Gordon at (pretty severe) odds over the return appearance of Oswald Cobblepot, the reveal of a mysterious new character with the unfortunate name of Kristen Kringle and the public take down of Montoya and Allen, the storylines just keep getting better and better. Of course, none of this comes as a surprise to fans who have been watching the series progress since the pilot.

The quality of the show has been there since day one and it’s not unusual for a series to take a few episodes to find its footing.

We spoke with series star BEN MacKENZIE not too long ago and he confessed to being very happy with the way the show was moving along.

GOTHAM airs tonight on FOX.

1For the last decade, Jesse Spencer has been a fixture on television. Spencer gained worldwide fame starring on the FOX hit series House for eight seasons. Shortly after House finished its epic run, Spencer quickly found another hit television series, starring in the NBC’s Chicago Fire.

Many actors who have found success like Spencer has may take it for granted, but not Spencer, who told us that he doesn’t take his success for granted. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jesse Spencer)

Chicago Fire airs Tuesday nights on NBC.

202b99_chocolate-milk_sc15_0009_f_hires2Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick returns once again tonight to the critically acclaimed FOX comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Since Sedgwick’s hit TNT series The Closer ended a few years ago, she has gone on to do a few other projects, but none have been a television show or a comedy. So when she was offered a chance to guest star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it was an easy “yes” for her to guest star. (Click on the media bar below to hear Kyra Sedgwick)

Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs tonight on FOX.

_rbdave73dj1_hires2Now in theaters, NIGHTCRAWLER is a gritty examination (and condemnation) of just how low television news coverage has fallen and the lengths the media will go to sell a story. Cynical to the max (there will undoubtedly be comparisons made to the 1976 film NETWORK), the film centers on a Los Angeles lowlife who becomes engulfed in the world of crime journalism to the point that he will do anything to get what he needs. Written and directed by DAN GILROY, the cast features JAKE GYLLENHAAL, RENE RUSSO, BILL PAXTON and a handful of real-life TV news personalities that should be familiar to L.A. audiences.

At the top of his game, GYLLENHAAL turns in an award-worthy performance that should get him some attention in the coming weeks. Reportedly losing 30 pounds for the role, he completely immersed himself in the world of professional ‘nightcrawlers’. During a recent press conference to promote the film, GYLLENHAAL talked about how he lived with this character throughout the whole shoot. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

NIGHTCRAWLER is in theaters now.

mc_0570_1_hires2Arriving in theaters today (and available via VOD), HORNS is a weird, darkly comic supernatural love story centered on a young man determined to find the killer of his girlfriend. Falsely accused of the murder, he mysteriously grows a set of gnarled horns that apparently compel the people around him to confess their deepest darkest secrets. Directed by ALEXANDRE AJA and based on the novel by JOE HILL (author STEPHEN KING’S son), the cast includes DANIEL RADCLIFFE, JUNO TEMPLE, MAX MINGHELLA and JAMES REMAR.

A bizarre mixture of tension, gore and tongue-in-cheek humor, HORNS is most definitely not aimed at the HARRY POTTER demographic and may even be too over-the-top for older folks as well. That said, it’s almost always fun to see the choices RADCLIFFE makes as he moves away from the blockbuster franchise that took up over a decade of his life. At a recent press conference to promote HORNS, RADCLIFFE explained what attracted him to this odd script. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

HORNS opens in theaters and is available today via VOD.

202b99_chocolate-milk_sc15_0009_f_hires21Debuting tonight on CBS, THE McCARTHYS is a dysfunctional family sitcom centered on the titular boisterous Boston clan whose obsession with sports is enjoyed by all except the one openly gay son amongst them. Created by BRIAN GALLIVAN (the man behind the very funny webseries SASSY GAY FRIEND), the series stars LAURIE METCALF, TYLER RITTER, JACK McGEE, JIMMY DUNN, JOEY McINTYRE and KELEN COLEMAN.

A relatively unknown actor, TYLER RITTER bears an amazing resemblance to his late father, JOHN RITTER, and his older brother JASON RITTER. The veteran of several short films, TYLER is following in his father’s very big sitcom shoes. At a recent press conference to promote THE McCARTHYS, TYLER RITTER talked about the influence his dad and brother have had on his comedy style. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

THE McCARTHYS debuts tonight on CBS.

202b99_chocolate-milk_sc15_0009_f_hires2Currently playing on HBO, MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN is a feature length documentary chronicling the life and career of the man who rightfully became known as ‘the hardest working man in show business.’ Produced by MICK JAGGER, directed by ALEX GIBNEY and blessed with the rare co-operation of the Brown estate, the film features rare archival interviews with BROWN himself, extensive historical footage and modern day footage with such colleagues as JAGGER, REV. AL SHARPTON, CHUCK D., ALAN LEEDS and DANNY RAY (to name just a scant few).

From his first hit (Please, Please, Please) to his breakout performances at Harlem’s Apollo Theater, his extensive civil rights activism and his notorious endorsement of RICHARD NIXON, the film is a genuine treasure trove of entertaining information.

A labor of love for producer MICK JAGGER (who also produced this year’s theatrical biopic GET ON UP), MR. DYNAMITE is a tribute to one of his favorite performers. We sat down with JAGGER a few months ago and he talked about how he was influenced by JAMES BROWN.

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN is currently airing on HBO.

_rbdave73dj1_hires219Just in time for Halloween, musical grave-robber BARRY MANILOW is releasing MY DREAM DUETS, a collection of cover songs technologically remastered to include a blend of his vocals with the original recordings made famous by some of the most iconic (and deceased) vocalists of the 20th century.

Beautifully produced, the collection features new orchestrations of songs made famous by the likes of ANDY WILLIAMS, LOUIS ARMSTRONG, JUDY GARLAND, MAMA CASS, DUSTY SPRINGFIELD, WHITNEY HOUSTON, JOHN DENVER and MARILYN MONROE. Every bit a valentine to eras gone by, the collection is a major accomplishment and a welcome addition to the MANILOW discography.

During his recent publicity tour to promote the new collection, MANILOW talked about how the project came to pass.


MY DREAM DUETS is available now wherever music is sold.

gotham_ver46Gwen Stefani is quickly becoming one of the most beloved judges on television. She is currently winning fans and critics over being a coach/judge on the NBC hit music reality series, The Voice.

Stefani, one of the most successful women ever in the music industry, didn’t know if she wanted to be on The Voice. When Stefani was offered the gig it was at a very busy time in her life, not only being a mother and a wife, she was also pregnant with her third child. But accepting the job on the show was an easy answer for her, and one she doesn’t have any regrets about. (Click on the media bar below to hear Gwen Stefani)

The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.

gotham_ver45Opening this Friday on Halloween, is the original Saw film, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary since it was first released. The franchise spun off six sequels in total, but it was the first Saw film that horror movie audiences seemed to like the most.

Nobody could have predicted Saw’s box office success, including its star, Cary Elwes, who recalls that not even the cast or filmmakers could have predicted the huge impact the film made. (Click on the media bar below to hear Cary Elwes)
