    Review: While Hopelessly Drunk On The Ideals Of Bygone Journalism, ‘The Newsroom’ Is Still An Engaging Broadcast

    The longer Aaron Sorkin’s deeply-nostalgic-for-the-golden-age-of-news show “The Newsroom” goes on for, the more improbable the workplace drama (and dramedy), set at a fictional cable-news show, becomes. A complacent and apathetic news anchor known as the MOR Jay Leno of news anchor suddenly explodes...

    Aaron Sorkin Moves 'The Newsroom' To Fairyland

    Aaron Sorkin has always had a huge, corn-fed Capraesque streak, and I don’t mean that as a compliment.  Even in his own day, Capra’s Americana was more willful than trenchant, but at least it suited its Greatest Generation era. Sorkin’s high-blown patriotic speeches, tran...

    With the novelty of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same character now worn off after the unveiling of the first "Looper" trailer, all eyes turn to the film itself and its upcoming release. Marketing has been a bit of a mixed bag so far, and the latest peeks don'...

    Peter Farrelly Says 'Dumb & Dumber 2' Will Shoot In September; 'Movie 43' Pushed To January 25, 2013

    In the works for a while now, and most recently kicking back to life last summer when it was reported that Jim Carrey was eyeballing a sequel to "Dumb & Dumber" as a potential next project, it looks like everything is coalescing for the return of Harry and Lloyd.

    Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels & The Farrelly Brothers Will Be 'Dumb And Dumber' Once Again

    During press for "Mr. Popper's Penguins," Jim Carrey hinted that he would be open to sequels of some of his earlier films. It looks like that wasn't just idle speculation. The mega-star, who quietly led "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to over $185 million worldwide, is returning to the well for arguably his most beloved role, Lloyd Christmas, with a sequel to "Dumb and Dumber." The Farrelly Brothers will be returning to direct, and Jeff Daniels is apparently being sought to return as well. Daniels, mind you, is 56, and Carrey is 49. So apparently it will be a tragedy about two sadly aging mentally retarded friends, because it's increasingly apparent ...

    'The Social Network' Secret Weapon Josh Pence Joins Aaron Sorkin's 'More As This Story Develops'

    Broadway Stars John Gallagher Jr and Thomas Sadoski Also On Board For HBO PilotOn the special features of the DVD for "The Social Network," actor Josh Pence admits that he was devastated when he discovered that he'd been cast in a major role in a new David Fincher film, but that his face and voice would never be heard on screen. Pence provided the body of Tyler Winklevoss, but co-star Armie Hammer's face was digitally inserted on the body, to maintain the illusion of identical twin-dom. But the graciousness of Hammer and Fincher on the publicity circuit ensured that Pence's name got out there, and he hasn't done too badly off it, landing supp...
