We should be looked at as representing nothing but ourselves and our own vision. Unfortunately, when you're black, your film represents more than your individual vision. If a David Lynch picture bombs, it isn't the death of white films. It's not that way for us.
Blessed be a premiere date for “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
Hulu announced Sunday that Season 2 of its acclaimed drama will premiere April 25 with two new episodes. And it’s moderation from there, with Hulu sticking with its weekly release strategy and rolling out subsequent episodes every Wednesday.
The first season of the drama, an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel, ended with Offred (Elisabeth Moss) pregnant and being whisked away in a van — her future uncertain. In turn, a central theme of the 13-episode second season, which moves past its source material, will be motherhood, with Offred determined to shield her future child from the horrors of Gilead.
There’s a whole lotta George Clooney coming to Hulu with the actor making his return to TV in a new limited series for the streaming service and his last TV go-round, “ER,” joining the streaming ranks.

The series marks Clooney’s first TV series regular role since he departed NBC’s medical drama, “ER,” nearly two decades ago.
I'm in the business of trying to achieve something wonderful, and so you use all of your wit and courage and mind and try to make it special. I mean, that's what art is — that's what people come to movies or the theater for, to see something special.
In the wake of a controversy sparked by reports that Mark Wahlberg earned roughly $1.5 million for reshoots on the set of "All the Money in the World" while costar Michelle Williams was paid only a fraction of that amount, Wahlberg and the agency that represents him, William Morris Endeavor, announced Saturday that they would be donating $2 million to Time's Up, a legal defense fund set up to combat inequality and harassment in Hollywood.
"Over the last few days, my reshoot fee forAll the Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation," Wahlberg saidin a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Times. "I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I'm donating the $1.5 million to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams' name."
WME, which also represents Williams, announced that it would be donating $500,000 to Time's Up.
Hours after actress Eliza Dushku came forward in a Facebook post alleging she was sexually assaulted by a stunt coordinator on the 1994 James Cameron film “True Lies,” the prolific director praised her bravery.
Cameron attended the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena on Saturday to discuss his installment of the recurring “AMC Visionaries” series. But the conversation took a more serious turn when he was asked about Dushku’s Facebook post published early Saturday morning that detailed alleged misconduct by the film’s stunt coordinator, Joel Kramer, when she was 12. Kramer denied the allegations in a statement to Deadline.
“I haven’t given a lot of thought to this specific situation,” Cameron, who wrote and directed the 1994 film, told reporters. “I just heard about it. But I mean, obviously, Eliza is very brave for speaking up, and I think all the women are that are speaking out and calling for a reckoning now.”
Had I known about it, there would have been no mercy.
Show business, especially television, is really about luck a lot of the time. To be on a show like 'Seinfeld' in one lifetime is very lucky. To have more than that? A lot of times it's not possible and it's OK. It's not a curse.
Anyone wondering if the black-dress blackout of Sunday night’s Golden Globes was going to continue through the entire awards season only had four nights to ponder the possibility. That’s because the stars descending on Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on Thursday seemed to put the issue to rest, some hitting the arrivals blue (yes, blue) carpet in white and off-white dresses, others in pale shades of pink or purple and some enthusiastically embracing bright, bold colors. Best supporting actress winner Allison Janney was in a blue Michael Cinco number, and Nicole Kidman wore a fuchsia frock from Valentino, to name just two.
Another popular television creator was accused of sexual harassment last week, but this time the story has a slightly different ending: a “masterclass in How to Apologize.”
After being taken to task on Twitter, “Community” creator Dan Harmon made a detailed and lengthy apology to “Community” writer Megan Ganz for his inappropriate behavior during her time on the NBC series.
