Michael Sheen To Play Liz Lemon's Love Interest On '30 Rock'

2/23/2010 10:00am EST
Michael Sheen to guest on 30 Rock
You may know Michael Sheen from his portrayal of Tony Blair in the acclaimed historical drama The Queen, or as the first name in Frost/Nixon. Your kids may know him from New Moon as the evil vampire king, or the Underworld series' werewolf. Now you'll see him on TV.

"I did a couple of episodes of 30 Rock that'll be out soon," Sheen said. "I'm doing a bit of 30 Rock which is great."

It sounds like he'll play a love interest to Liz Lemon (Tina Fey). At least he spent all his time working with her. "I was with Tina and all my stuff was with Tina. She asked me if I would do these couple o...

'Moon' Brings Philosophical Questions To Movie-Watchers

6/12/2009 3:58pm EDT
Amid the summer movie madness - heavy on special effects and light on storytelling - Moon is ready to offer audience members a healthy dose of reality. But there's one catch: Moon is a science-fiction flick, which makes that previous statement a bit of an oxymoron.

Director Duncan Jones, son of music icon David Bowie and self-described sci-fi geek, set out to create a sort of throwback to earlier sci-fi films like Blade Runner and Outlander, which didn't revolve around mystifying movie-goers with scene after scene of gaudy special effects.

"There are unquestionably less of those kind ...

Lauren Graham And Oliver Platt Shine In Broadway's Guys And Dolls, Just Not Together

Lauren Graham
Remember on Seinfeld when George Costanza gave Jerry two tickets for Guys and Dolls on Broadway? I've probably seen this episode 15 times. I remember thinking: Who gives someone tickets to Guys and Dolls? Is this what people in New York City do? Also: What exactly is Guys and Dolls?

I now live in New York City; I have now seen Guys and Dolls.

There is a lot of hype surrounding this revival considering Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) and Oliver Platt (Frost/Nixon) are starring. So much, indeed, that it was next to impossible to not read, or at least hear about, a review -- especially...

2009 Oscar Predictions: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

2/20/2009 10:42am EST
After months of speculation, it's finally time to man up and throw down with some hardcore Oscar predictions. But before we tell you who will and should win the Oscar on Sunday night, let's address the whole secrecy notion surrounding this year's event.

You may not have heard (which is probably part of the point) but the Academy has decided to surround this year's ceremony in mystery. Mainly, they've refused to reveal who will be presenting Oscars this year and have gone so far as to forbid its presenters from appearing on the red carpet. Why? Because they think fashionistas will b...

Oscar Nomination Reaction: The Snubs, Surprises & Who Shouldn't Have Been Nominated

The Dark Knight
There's nothing better than a good surprise on Oscar morning, and this year we had one in almost every category. Before we get to the snubs, the surprises and who shouldn't be nominated, let's take a look at what type of a morning this was:

This was the morning that The Academy once again showed how out-of-touch it is. By not dominating "The Dark Knight", the Oscars continued to show that it doesn't care about nominating movies people actually like. There was absolutely no reason this film shouldn't get nominated: It has a 94% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it got an A from audi...

Slumdog Millionaire
The time has come, after several months of campaigning and voting, we're finally set for the big day. No, not the inauguration. Please. We're talking about Oscar morning.

Those fifteen minutes at the crack of dawn where overly-caffeinated celebs awkwardly read the names of the top five in each category. Always gripping. Also, this is prime time for predictions. All the returns are in, the precursor season is over, so there's not excuses left. Without delay, here are my final Oscar Predictions.

Okay, one delay. I should note that I hate being right. I hate getting predictio...

All this year we've used this space to chronicle the annals of pop culture. Specifically, whether or not certain members of this all-encompassing umbrella term are overrated or underrated.

The time has come to focus our microscope a little more sharply and turn our critical eye on the year that was.

So, here they are, the first annual All Overrated/Underrated Awards in the fields of music, television and film.

Spotlight On Oscar's Best Pictures

1/7/2009 12:15pm EST
January is the start of award season which means it's a tense time in Tinsel town! Actors are either being recognized or shunned for their tremendous work, agents are either celebrating with their stars or firing their "has-been" actors and we are betting on who is going to take home the Oscar! The stars, the fashion, the ambiance, the parties and actually taking home an Oscar along with the bragging rights that come along with it make this time of year so exciting!

The category of Best Picture is a huge deal and to be a part of the movie that wins is an honor! To say that you starre...

(Truth Justice and Gordon Shumway - weekly column) I'm not going to lie to you, 2008 was a pretty terrible year. But, over here at "TJAGS" we're not going to focus on the bad; instead, let's focus on ten good things that happened during the past year. Not just good things, not just great things, but some may be inclined to call call them the ten "best" things to happen, at least in the world of entertainment, in 2008.

Hey, if you feel I missed something, feel free to add it in the comments. In fact, let's make this one big love fest for what was the year 2008 before we, you know, tell...

This marks the end point of the first phase of the Oscar race as many of the critics awards have been handed out and the more reliable industry awards are starting to trickle in.

12 Upcoming Films To See Before Oscar Night

Revolutionary Road
This year's Oscar race isn't very deep with talent, and at this point there are probably only eight films with a legitimate shot at getting a nod for Best Picture. But those that have a chance at a nomination also have a great chance of winning.

One such film, "The Dark Knight", has already hit screens, but the rest of this group will premiere in the coming weeks as studios scramble to get their prestige pictures on the big screen before the year-end deadline.

Every year, film fans are tormented by the true snobs who catch all these possible nominees before the big awards show att...
