House Of Cards will return for its sixth and final season later this year, with Robin Wright running things on and off screen. There’s still a President Underwood in the show’s White House, but it’s now Claire, who’s also served as Vice President. And in a case of life imitating art, Wright has stepped up to lead the…

Seth Meyers asks women to lead us into the future in searing Golden Globes monologue

Leading up the ceremonial duties for the largest Hollywood gathering since the revelations of just how deep the culture of sexual harassment (and misogyny) runs in the film and TV industry—and really, anywhere—was going to be a tough task for anyone.

Removing Kevin Spacey isn't the only way they could have improved All The Money In The World

Whatever else can be said about Ridley Scott’s ripped-from-the-headlines thriller All The Money In The World, you’d never guess—if you didn’t know already—that one of its key roles was occupied by an entirely different actor just six weeks ago. Gone is Kevin Spacey, who buried himself deeply under mounds of old-age…

All The Money In The World moves its release date to Christmas Day

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has pushed the release date of Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World—a movie that does not have Kevin Spacey in it, so don’t bring up Kevin Spacey—from December 22 to December 25.

Ridley Scott enthusiastically explains his decision to recast Kevin Spacey in All The Money In The World

Hollywood is facing a long-overdue campaign of housecleaning at the moment, as decades-worth of accusations of sexual harassment and assault against powerful men are finally coming to light (and actually being listened to, for once).

We are witnessing Hollywood’s long-overdue moral reckoning

In 2006, while accepting the Best Supporting Actor award for Syriana, George Clooney gave a speech that instantly became such shorthand for celebrity smugness that South Park based an entire episode around making fun of it. “We are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while, I think. It’s probably a…

Difficult People has been ruthlessly calling out Kevin Spacey for years
