Fans of Showtime’s series Homeland will soon get to see Emmy-winning actor Damian Lewis in a whole new light in the cable network’s political and financial drama series Billions.
The 12-episode first season doesn’t start airing until 2016, but the first teaser trailer has just arrived online, showcasing in intense game of cat and mouse as a corrupt billionaire hedge fund king (Lewis) is pursued by U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti). This looks like quite a compelling drama, even in just this single-minute teaser.

No, Jon Hamm isn’t planning some network television stunt to air after the series finale of Mad Men on May 17th. Instead, High Wire Act is the name of a new political action thriller that will be led by the star of Million Dollar Arm and Bridesmaids and, yes, Mad Men. And with a script from Tony Gilroy, the writer behind The Bourne Identity franchise, this should be a project to keep an eye on. So what’s the film about? Details on the plot after the jump.

Their latest deal is equally impressive and probably a little bit funnier.

A Presidential conversation with a TV creator admittedly is on the borderline of this site’s focus. But when that TV creator is David Simon, the man primarily responsible for arguably the best TV show ever, The Wire, and he’s talking about issues in that show with the sitting President of the United States, that’s something more. That’s historic and something anyone who is a fan of The Wire would be interested in seeing. Watch the President Obama The Wire video below. Read More »

If you’re like me, you’re busy binging your way through House of Cards season 3 (please, no spoilers) and are currently invested in the drama. I thought today would be a good time to highlight two new House of Cards videos which have been making their way across the interwebs.
The first is a House of Cards yellow and blue conspiracy theory video essay which attempts to prove that the show’s sophisticated look is actually just composed using a simple color formula. You might remember the orange/blue movie poster formula we highlighted almost six years ago — you weren’t able to look at movie posters the same afterwards, will you be able to watch House of Cards without noticing this simple composition breakdown?
The second video, linguists examine the history behind Frank Underwood’s accent and specifically why Kevin Spacey‘s accent in House of Cards sounds off. Watch the House of Cards yellow and blue video and the Frank Underwood accent video after the jump.
