Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg On Harvey

Rosenberg says: “Everybody fucking knew… Or if Harvey’s behavior is the most reprehensible thing one can imagine, a not-so-distant second is the flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of bullshit righteousness.”

“Roseanne” Is Filming New Episodes

On the eve of Roseanne‘s 29th anniversary, EW shares this exclusive image of the original cast reuniting for the first table read of the revival’s premiere episode, which is titled “Twenty Years to Life.” In the laughter-filled behind-the-scenes photo above, star and executive producer Roseanne Barr (Roseanne) is joined by original cast members John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Michael Fishman (D.J.), and Lecy Goranson (Becky) on the set, which appears identical to the Connor home we already know and love.

Watch Morrissey’s New Video


A wheelchair-bound Morrissey is pushed around by English soccer player Joey Barton in the new video for “Spent the Day in Bed.” The song serves as the lead single from Morrissey’s upcoming Low in High School album, out November 17th. n the track’s new clip, directed by Sophie Muller, Morrissey and his band run through their chirpy-yet-misanthropic single in front of a small stage. The singer remains seated the entire time, exuding comfort; Barton eats snacks in slow motion. “Life ends in death,” Morrissey sings. “So there’s nothing wrong with being good to yourself.” Low in High School is Morrissey’s first album since 2014.

Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” To Be Reissued

The newly remastered 2xLP release is limited to 5000 copies and marks the album’s first pressing on vinyl in North America.

Horror Films: Back From The Dead?

I rarely go to see horror films in cinemas anymore. The experience can’t compare with seeing them in the gloriously seedy Times Square of the 1970s and 1980s and the sense of danger therein. (My friend Dee Sushi and I once waited online for a midnight showing of some bloodfest. We heard gunshots coming from inside the theater. Did the crowd outside flee? No way! This was what the horror-movie experience was in those days.) I may, however, have to sneak back into a cinema next year to see Jamie Lee Curtis return to the “Halloween” franchise. You object that she was killed off back in 2002? To quote Freddy Krueger to Zsa Zsa Gabor in one of those “Nightmare on Elm Street” flicks: “Who gives a fuck what you think?”

Bill Nighy On Lazy Actors & Stage Fright

Bill Nighy is proof that actors — that men — can be stylish and suave after the age of 65. In this new interview, he chides actors for not learning their lines before showing up for rehearsal. But my favorite bit in this self-deprecating talk about his career, at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, comes when Nighy is asked if he had suffered with anxiety throughout his career, having to force himself to go on stage. Discussing how he had overcome it, he joked that standing still and keeping a straight face could convince audiences the character was having deep thoughts. “People make millions of dollars doing this,” he said.

Ai Weiwei: China Is Laughing At Trump

In a new interview for The Global Politico during a rare visit to Trump’s Washington, artist Ai Weiwei referred to Trump’s win as “the moment I think history stopped,” a “backward” evolution that undermines liberal ideas like freedom of speech and human dignity everywhere. Authoritarian leaders in China and elsewhere are the beneficiaries of Trump and the crisis of American democracy, said Ai, who spent four years under house arrest and forbidden to leave China before being allowed to leave the country two years ago. “China is laughing about this situation,” he said. “China, Russia, they all laugh about it.” Ai, who has long embraced political themes in his work, has gone full-out activist in a new feature-length documentary film about the global refugee crisis, called Human Flow and released in theaters across the U.S. Friday, and in a new, New York City-wide public-art exhibit of 300 works in dozens of locations called “Good Walls Make Good Neighbors.”
