Those Who Kill
"I'm terrified," says Chloë Sevigny between takes on the Pittsburgh set of her new thriller, Those Who Kill. She's not scared by the scene she's shooting, in which her character, homicide detective Catherine Jensen, chats with a coroner (Kerry O'Malley) over a grotesquely desiccated corpse in the morgue. Sevigny is vocalizing her deepest fear: "What if I get stuck on a crappy cop show?"
Twenty-one Super Sundays ago, Andre Braugher kicked off his episodic-TV career as hard-charging Baltimore Det. Frank Pembleton on Homicide: Life on the Street. The role would earn him his first of seven Emmy nominations — he has won twice, for Homicide and the FX miniseries Thief — and lead to gigs playing doctors (Gideon's Crossing, House), military men (Last Resort) and even a car salesman (Men of a Certain Age).
Now he's come full circle, again embodying a police officer, albeit a very different one: Capt. Ray Holt, the deadpan commanding officer on...
In the Sherlock Holmes canon, his archnemesis, Moriarty, has always served as a potent stimulant: an intellectual equal who can challenge the master detective's powers of deductive reasoning with his own acts of evil genius. But with the revelation at the end of Elementary's first season last May that Moriarty and Irene Adler (Natalie Dormer) — Sherlock's long-lost lover — were one and the same person, Jonny Lee Miller's Holmes experienced a whole new kind of stimulation.
Who better to discuss Saturday Night Live's Christmas-themed compilation special than new featured player Noël Wells? With a first name like that, she was born to do it.
What would Thanksgiving be without a visit from our beloved Drunk Uncle? He's just one of the many characters Bobby Moynihan hilariously embodies on Saturday Night Live, which commemorates Turkey Day with a sketch-stuffed special.
When Cecily Strong sat in Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" anchor chair for the first time this fall, she had only one goal in mind: Don't cry. "I'm a crybaby, so I express every emotion with tears," says the Springfield, Illinois, native. "But they would've been happy tears — I would've been bawling because I was so excited."
You can't blame her for being psyched. In only her second season on SNL, she's been promoted from lowly featured player to heir to the throne coanchor Seth Meyers will vacate when he leaves to host NBC's Late Night early next year. "Cecily's had a meteoric rise, as opposed to my molasses-like one," quips Meyers.
It's almost literally a dream come true for Strong, who...
Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
One of Elementary's stars is misbehaving. No, it's not Jonny Lee Miller, aka Sherlock Holmes, who is currently upside down on the hit drama's Queens set, doing handstand push-ups to get the blood rushing to his brain so he can remember the huge chunk of expository dialogue he needs to spit out. And it's not Lucy Liu (sidekick Joan Watson), who is quietly sitting at a desk with a computer, an iPad, an iPod and a BlackBerry.
It's Clyde, Sherlock and Watson's pet turtle, who's having a diva moment. The creature has stopped moving, so it's quickly replaced by...
