Richard Jenkins, perhaps best known for playing the dead dad on HBO’s “Six Feet Under,” just earned his second Academy Award nomination on Tuesday for his role in Gulliermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” — and he hopped on the phone with TheWrap to tell us all about the excitement. Asked if he had any rituals leading up to Oscar night, Jenkins said, wryly, “I don’t wear pants for two weeks.” Of course, he was joking. Jenkins, who was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for playing Giles, a lonely gay illustrator with a crush on the counterman at his...

‘Here and Now’ Trailer: Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter Have a New Kind of Modern Family in HBO Series

In case you’re wondering whether “Here and Now,” the upcoming HBO drama, addresses current national attitudes, one of the characters literally says at one point “Because the country’s a mess right now?” But rather than address that uncertainty through one perspective, the first trailer for the show presents two different families.

“Here and Now” features Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter as a couple who have adopted children from Vietnam, Colombia, and Liberia. Now that all the children are older, the show tracks how the family dynamic changes between parents and siblings, including the couple’s lone biological child. To complicate matters, one of the children’s therapist and his family find themselves connected in ways they hadn’t anticipated.

Interview, Audio: Illeana Douglas on Directors & Female Spirit

Chicago – The acting career of Illeana Douglas began with director Martin Scorsese and flourished in her first lead role for “Grace of My Heart” (1996). She is best known today for hosting the “Trailblazing Women” series on Turner Classic Movies, and in Part Three of a three part interview with HollywoodChicago.com, she talks about feminism, the essence of directors she has worked for, plus her grandmother Helen Gahagan, the third female Congress representative in U.S. history.

Illeana Douglas was born in Massachuetts, the daughter of Gregory Douglas, the son of 1930s movie star Melvyn Douglas (Helen Gahagan was his wife). She got the show biz bug as a young teenager, when she was able to visit her grandfather on the set of “Being There” (1979). After high school she moved to New York City to pursue a career.

Interview, Audio: Trailblazing Actress & Film Historian Illeana Douglas

Chicago – Long before 2017, the year of notable recognition for women filmmakers, the actress, producer and author Illeana Douglas launched the film series “Trailblazing Women” on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) in 2015. Her goal was to achieve recognition for the pioneering efforts of women in early film history and beyond.

“Trailblazing Women” had its third season in October of 2017, and again Douglas was the host. She has been an advocate for women throughout her show business career, besides having the ancestry cache of her grandfather – Oscar-winner Melvyn Douglas – who was a movie star and character actor from the 1930s through the 1980s.

‘9-1-1’ Review: Peter Krause Wrestles Snakes and Connie Britton Negs Chicken Nuggets in Very Bad Fox Drama
Years from now, when “911” is just a number people dial in anger after McDonald’s stiffs them three chicken nuggets in their happy meal, someone should sit down with Golden Globe nominee Peter Krause and ask him what it was like delivering the line, “You can’t punch it in the face, Buck — it’s a snake!” After all, it’s not every day the star of “Six Feet Under” and “Parenthood” would be asked to say something so ridiculous, let alone do so with the straight face and determined demeanor of a blue-blooded American hero.

Was that the moment he knew something was amiss in Ryan Murphy’s prestigious new procedural? Did it feel as strange to act in the scene as it is to watch it unfold? Did Krause and co-star Aisha Hinds exchange a look during the shoot, telepathically communicating, “We did great things once. You gave

‘Here and Now’ Trailer Reveals ‘True Blood’ Creator Alan Ball’s New HBO Series

HBO has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming drama series Here and Now. The show marks the new effort from Six Feet Under and True Blood creator Alan Ball and is something of a family drama, albeit with a very Alan Ball twist. Oscar-winners Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins lead the show as parents of three adopted children and one biological daughter, all grown up.
