    Are You Ready For Herman Cain TV?

    You know him. You love him. Well OK, not everyone loves him. Especially that long-time mistress of his, or those other women with whom he got a bit... "too friendly" with.

    Watch: New Clips From William Friedkin's 'Killer Joe' & Fernando Meirelles' '360'

    Our own Oliver Lyttleton saw “Killer Joe” last year in Venice and was impressed enough to award the film with a B+ rating. After its U.K. release last weekend this writer was able to catch the film and was similarly impressed, so it’s with a great deal of enthusiasm that we are able to write about another clip for the film debuting online ahead of its limited U.S. release on July 27th.

    Danny McBride & Jody Hill Reveal Why 'Eastbound & Down' Is Back And What To Expect In Season 4

    In case you missed the news last night, HBO has ordered up a fourth season of "Eastbound & Down." That's right, the show that everyone expected was over and done with this spring -- including creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill -- is now back, with eight more episodes to come. The announcement was a surprise for everyone, but according to a very candid McBride, he's just glad to have another shot at the show, which it seems he felt was slightly compromised in the third season, in terms of everything they wanted to delve into with Kenny Fucking Powers.

    Financing Arrives For Adaptation Of Chuck Palahniuk's 'Snuff'; Rudolph Nureyev Biopic Based On 'Dancer' On The Way

    While "Fight Club" will probably always be the high bar never to be reached again for adaptations of Chuck Palahniuk's work on the big screen, filmmakers will keep trying. "Choke" came and went and was mostly a disappointment, but "Snuff" should be an interesting gamble. The author's book about an aging porn star who decides to cap off her career by having sex with 600 men in one day, with the story told through the eyes of three men who are lining up to do the deed with her, should be challenging to say the least. And while we never thought financing would come through for a project that presumably has a very niche appeal, money is coming.

    Andy Griffith: An Underrated Actor

    If Andy Griffith had left show business after creating the role of Will Stockdale in No Time for Sergeants, on stage and screen, and “Lonesome” Rhodes in A Face in the Crowd, he would have earned his stripes, before gaining TV immortality as Sheriff Andy Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show. Instead, all most people are thinking and talking about today, upon hearing of his death at age 86, is that indelible half-hour TV series set in Mayberry, U.S.A. and patterned after Griffith’s real-life home town of Mount Airy, North Carolina.

    Clark Duke Headed To 'The Office'; Mark Pellington Directing ABC Pilot 'Red Widow'

    Is there any show that is more shambled, barely wheezing and in a shell of its former self than "The Office"? After Steve Carell exited the show (which was already wobbling in its last season with him), it seems the writers and showrunners had no idea what to do, flailing about as the comedy got much more broad, and the focus shifted away from the absurd mundane workaday life at Dunder Mifflin, into the corporate shenanigans at Sabre -- and all this while trying to establish Rainn Wilson as the show's next breakout star (plans to spin off Dwight Schrute into his own show, "The Farm," seem ill-advised at best). Anyway, long story short, they need some new life and they are pinning the hopes on some young talent.
