2 hours ago

Following up on his impassioned — and widely shared — remarks on Tuesday night’s show, Jimmy Kimmel topped off Wednesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” by doubling down on his opposition to the Gop’s latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. And he had especially harsh words for the bill’s cosponsor, Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy, as well as critics of his remarks like “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade. Cassidy, Kimmel said, “either doesn’t understand his own bill – or he lied to me.” And as for Kilmeade, the Fox host, Kimmel said, talks tough on TV but in. »

Colbert: Trump’s Nonexistent Country ‘Nambia’ Will Soon Have Better Health Care Than Us (Video)

3 hours ago

During the opening monologue on tonight’s episode of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” the host added his voice to the online bonfire Donald Trump sparked after he invented a fictional African country while speaking to actual African leaders. On Wednesday morning, during a speech given at a luncheon for African leaders, Trump made reference to “Nambia,” a country whose health care system he said “is increasingly self-sufficient.” Suffice to say, no such country exists (Trump was likely trying, and failing, to pronounce the name of Namibia). “Now, there is no such country as Nambia,” Colbert said at the top of. »

‘Mark Felt’ Director on How a ‘Heroic, Almost Selfless Task’ Took Down the Presidency (Video)

5 hours ago

We know the name “Deep Throat” as the informant that helped take down President Nixon in the wake of Watergate. But with his new film “Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House,” director Peter Landesman hopes you’ll come to know his real name. “When I heard it was Mark Felt, I hadn’t any idea who he was. I didn’t even know his name.

Mismarketing ‘mother!': Festival Obsession Can’t Find an Audience

6 hours ago

There’s an old joke about Sigmund Freud: If it’s not one thing, it’s your mother. If only Darren Aronfsky’s “mother!” were as easy to explain. The film, which obsessed critics at film festivals, has bewildered actual Americans — or at least, many of the few who have gone to see the box-office dud. Despite starring A-lister Jennifer Lawrence, the film earned an F from moviegoers on Cinemascore and only made $7.5 million on a $30 million budget this opening weekend. They might not have been so disappointed if the film, and its studio, Paramount, could have braced Americans over what to expect. »

Jerry Seinfeld dusts off some of the best jokes from the early years of his career and presents them to a 2017 audience in his new Netflix stand-up special “Jerry Before Seinfeld,” resulting in a surprisingly introspective hour from the famously impersonal comedian.

‘Being Mary Jane’ Star Lisa Vidal on How Costar Michael Ealy Pranked Her

6 hours ago

Michael Ealy’s character on “Being Mary Jane,” is intense and carries a stern demeanor to say the least, but Lisa Vidal assures us that that couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to her costar in real life. “Michael Ealy is the prankster of all pranksters,” Vidal tells TheWrap. On the Bet series, Kara Lynch (Vidal) and Justin Talbot (Ealy) aren’t the best of friends — in fact, they former kind of hates the latter, but that obviously didn’t stop Ealy from messing with Vidal off screen.

How Linda Hamilton’s ‘Terminator’ Return Could Upend Its Timeline Yet Again (Commentary)

6 hours ago

The “Terminator” series may about to get even more confusing, which is quite a feat considering the last movie in the franchise completely rewrote the twisting time-travel story from the ground up.

Timeline A: The Terminator arrives in 1984 (“The Terminator”) Arriving at the Griffith Park Observatory, the first Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) steals clothes from some punk thugs (including Bill Paxton in a cameo role), then heads into Los Angeles to find Sarah Connor. »

Duffer Brothers on Their Journey From Film-School Rejection to ‘Stranger Things’ (Exclusive Video)

8 hours ago

A version of this story about the Duffer brothers first appeared in the college issue of TheWrap magazine. There’s a copy of TV Guide from 1983 on the coffee table, a box of vinyl toys on the floor, three or four dogs wandering the halls and a solar eclipse happening outside this tidy two-story bungalow in the heart of Hollywood. In other words, it’s just another day in the offices where Matt and Ross Duffer oversee the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” a 1980s-set Stephen King-meets-Steven Spielberg mashup that in short order became a cult item and then an 18-time Emmy. »
