Amanda Peet Didn't Think Game of Thrones Was a Good Idea (Also: Her Hubby's the Showrunner!)

Originally posted 01/28/2015 10:30AM

[YOUTUBE "249I4kxTBEU"] Not to cast aspersions on Amanda Peet's character, or anything, but she may not have the best judgment.

If it were up to her, Game of Thrones wouldn't have received a green light!

The actress, 43, has been married to David Benioff since 2006. He co-created GoT, now entering its fifth season, with D.B. Weiss – and Peet wasn't so sure that the fantasy series should have been adapted for television.

Originally posted 01/22/2015 03:00PM

[BRIGHTCOVE "4005282458001" "" "" "auto"] Will Rosie O'Donnell ever run out of surprises? Don't bet on it.

Her latest: Injecting some of the hard truths about her personal life – such as the difficulty of raising four of her five children now that they are teenagers – into her recently reactivated standup-comedy act, which HBO has filmed for the documentary special Rosie O'Donnell: A Heartfelt Stand Up, premiering Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, at 10 p.m.

"People say, why would you have another baby when you have four teenagers?" The View co-host and actress-activist, 52, tells her audience at Levity Live, a comedy club within a shopping mall in Nyack, New York, the town up the Hudson River where she used to live. (She now calls Saddle Brook, New Jersey, home.)

O'Donnell's response: "Because I have four teenagers, and I needed to remind myself that I actually do love children, because teenagers suck."

Girls: Four Reasons Why Season 4 Might Be the Best Yet

Originally posted 01/10/2015 05:30AM

HBO has provided only the first five episodes of season 4 of writer-actress Lena Dunham's Girls, premiering Sunday at 9 p.m. ET – otherwise known as the time when the Golden Globes are airing on NBC – but so far the show is biting, funny, touching and surprising.

In short, it's an absolute delight, and possibly even better than the landmark first season. That's the one that ended with Elijah (Andrew Rannells) greeting Marnie (Allison Williams) with this putdown of her dress: "Hello, J-Lo from the Grammys."

Of course, Dunham, who stars as desperately ambitious Brooklyn writer Hannah Horvath, has in the past shown an almost willful tendency to let go of the leash and allow the show to bolt off and run away like an undisciplined Labrador pup.

The Comeback: Why Lisa Kudrow Shot the Emotional Final Scene in One Take

Originally posted 12/29/2014 11:15AM

In the heartfelt finale of The Comeback's second season on Sunday, we finally saw Valerie Cherish (Lisa Kudrow) put her personal relationships ahead of her career just as she was about to receive the professional validation for which she was always so desperate.

In an interview with E! News, Kudrow revealed why that final scene made her "physically sick" to the point that it had to be accomplished in one take – as well as the difference between roles for women in TV versus Hollywood.

"That final scene in the hospital … um, something weird happened," said Kudrow. "That was our last night. I felt ill. And I don't usually somatize things … I think I did. … I had to get out of there."
