    '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...

    Sam Waterston Heads Back To TV For Aaron Sorkin's HBO Pilot

    They say there's no such thing as a job for life these days, but the cast of NBC's long-running procedural "Law & Order" must have thought they had the closest thing to one until the show was canceled last year, on the verge of its 20th season. But rather than slipping quietly away into retirement, ...

    Emily Mortimer Beats Out Marisa Tomei For Lead In Aaron Sorkin's HBO Pilot

    We bloody love Emily Mortimer. The British star has proved herself over the last decade or so to be an incredibly versatile actress, capable of terrific dramatic work, in projects like "Lars and the Real Girl" or "Lovely & Amazing" (the latter really should have brought her more awards attention) an...

    Marisa Tomei, Alison Pill & Olivia Munn In Talks For Aaron Sorkin's HBO Drama

    Generally speaking, HBO keeps going from strength to strength. 2011 has already brought the most involving "Cinema Verite," the increasingly gripping "Game of Thrones" (which is more than worth checking out, even if you're allergic to fantasy) and Todd Haynes' wonderful "Mildred Pierce," and their u...

    'Superbad' & 'Paul' Director Greg Mottola To Helm Aaron Sorkin's New HBO Pilot

    We love movies, and (good) television, and stories in general. That's why we do what we do. And sometimes, we get up to see the slate of developing stories, and it depresses the fuck out of us. It can be hard to keep up your enthusiasm when movie versions of "Candyland" and reboots of "Ms. Marple" a...

    The Small Screen: Aaron Sorkin To Talk Fast, Walk Through Corridors On '30 Rock'

    After a brief dip in quality in its fourth season, Tina Fey's "30 Rock" is firmly back on form, reinforcing its position as one of the funniest shows on TV in recent years. The show launched Fey's movie career and revitalized Alec Baldwin's in a big way (Tracy Morgan's, not so much), but the series ...

    'The Social Network' Tops The Golden Globes With Four Awards Including Best Picture

    'The Fighter' Wins Two Awards Including Best Supporting Actor and Actress"The Social Network," as expected, won big at tonight's Golden Globes taking home Best Picture, Best Score, Best Screenplay and Best Director, putting it at the front of the pack for next month's Oscars. And while the ceremony was a bit of a snore, there were some very pleasant surprises. "The Kids Are All Right" earned a Best Actress win for Annette Bening and rightfully won over the thoroughly tepid pack that made up the Best Motion Picture (Comedy Or Musical) category. Susanne Bier's "In A Better World" truly shocked with a big Best Foreign Language Film win, while Pa...

    Aaron Sorkin Writing, Danny Elfman Scoring 'Houdini' Broadway Musical For Hugh Jackman

    You wouldn't necessarily know it from his frequently gruff screen persona, but Hugh Jackman has a long background in stage musicals -- he was plucked from his role in "Oklahoma" at the National Theatre in London to play Wolverine a decade ago, and has generally leaned towards the action end of the spectrum on the big-screen, despite the development of the likes of a musical based around P.T. Barnum, an adaptation of "Carousel," and his attachment to the sadly dead Steven Soderbergh-directed 3D "Cleo," in which Jackman would have starred alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones and Ray Winstone, to a score by Guided By Voices -- a project we'd sit throu...
