A new Netflix original comedy series is coming to the streaming service next month starring Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, but it’s not exactly what you would expect from either of them.
Santa Clarita Diet might sound like the latest weight loss craze for people to make their New Year’s resolutions come to fruition (and the teasers from a little while back certainly played into that). But it’s actually the new comedy series that finds Drew Barrymore as a normal suburban woman who happens to have died at some point, and yet has inexplicably kept on living her life, but with one big change: she is now hungry for raw flesh.
As any devoted husband would do, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) decides to help her satisfy her cravings, and her teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) is totally cool with it too. Watch the new Santa Clarita Diet trailer to see how this all shakes out. Read More »

I didn’t know that a Drew Barrymore / Timothy Olyphant cannibalism satire was something I needed in my life, but now that I know Santa Clarita Diet is happening I’m kind of upset it’s not already here. During the Golden Globes last night, Netflix debuted the first teasers for the new series, which hails from Better Off Ted and Andy Richter Controls the Universe creator Victor Fresco. Check ’em out below. Read More »
Timothy Olyphant is an actor we’re happy to see is starring in a new series. He’s the kind of performer you’re pleased to see show up in any medium, but with a show, it means our time isn’t limited with the Justified star, who has such a relaxed, natural charisma. With his new show, Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, he’s acting alongside the equally charming Drew Barrymore, whose character undergoes a surprising change.
Below, learn what the Santa Clarita Diet is really about.

Deadwood is one of the many HBO shows that had its life cut too short. Ever since the series was canceled, there have been talks of creator David Milch wrapping the series up with a film. One year a Deadwood movie appears likely, the next year it’s reported as dead. A few months ago, though, HBO confirmed “it’s going to happen,” and they’re ready when Milch is.
Below, check out the latest Deadwood movie update from actor Ian McShane.

It’s almost time for another holiday centric comedy from director Garry Marshall. However, this time the cast of Mother’s Day doesn’t seem quite as packed to the gills with celebrities as its predecessors Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Instead, it’s Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Britt Robertson, Sarah Chalke, Shay Mitchell, Jon Lovitz, Aasif Mandvi, Timothy Olyphant and Margo Martindale starring in the movie, which follows multiple interconnected storylines.
Now a new trailer introduces some characters we haven’t met before, including Mitchell (who debuted the trailer across her social media channels) as Olyphant’s new girlfriend — which doesn’t really sit well with his ex-wife, played by Aniston. Watch the new Mother’s Day trailer with your mom or significant other after the jump. Read More »

Every year, the studios release approximately 8 million prestige dramas between November and December, and it looks like this year’s slate is already getting crowded. The latest to join the year-end fray is Oliver Stone‘s Snowden, a biopic of the NSA whistleblower.
In addition to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays the title character, Snowden also features an admirable supporting cast that now includes Timothy Olyphant, Rhys Ifans, and Joely Richardson. More on the Snowden release date and casting updates after the jump. Read More »

If nothing else, This is Where I Leaves You earns a peek for its cast alone. Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard and Jane Fonda are just a few of the names in this adaptation of a novel by Jonathan Tropper. In the story, a dysfunctional family is forced to reunite for a whole week when their father dies. Old feuds become newly inflamed, passions are ignited, and all kinds of other madness ensues.
But This I Where I Leave You isn’t a straight up, sad drama. There are laughs too, as evidenced not only by director Shawn Levy being at the helm, but the brand new trailer. Check out the first This Is Where I Leave You Trailer below. Read More »

A star-studded cast doesn’t guarantee a good movie, but it definitely doesn’t hurt. Especially when the stars in question include the likes of Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Jason Bateman, Corey Stoll, Connie Britton, Timothy Olyphant, and Rose Byrne.
Directed by Shawn Levy, This Is Where I Leave You centers on the Altman family, who come together for their father’s funeral. Which sounds like somber stuff on paper, but — as you might’ve guessed from the cast — This Is Where I Leave You plays out as a bittersweet comedy. See the first This Is Where I Look image after the jump.

Briefly: Just a week ago we heard that Justified might end with its planned sixth season. (The fifth season just began.) Now FX CEO John Landgraf has confirmed that the show’s sixth season will be its last. Landgraf said, “It was really Graham and Tim Olyphant’s decision … We talked about it a year ago and they felt that the arc of the show and what they had to say (fit better with six seasons than seven seasons). Regretfully, that’s their decision.”
And while knowing that we’ll soon see the last of Olyphant’s character Raylan Givens, it’s probably better to know he’ll go out strong rather than withering away in seasons that keep running just because they can. As Nick Grad of FX said last week, “We like having shows that rate really well, and there’s an instinct that you want it to go on forever. But it doesn’t. … Going out at the right time is going to make your show last forever — we want to make shows that stand the test of time.”
