Rachel Brosnahan's Romance With Jason Ralph Started Way Before She Was on Mrs. Maisel
Rachel Brosnahan is quickly becoming one of TV's biggest breakout stars. While this certainly isn't her first brush with fame, she is gaining critical acclaim for her role on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. As Rachel steps into the spotlight, fans want to know even more about her. While she's very reserved about her personal life, specifically her love life, we do know one thing for sure: she's happily taken.

If you watch Syfy's The Magicians or TV Land's Younger, then you probably already know her husband, Jason Ralph. The two first met in 2015 while working on the Wgn series Manhattan and have been together ever since. While the two have kept pretty mum about the state of their relationship, Rachel confirmed to People that they are indeed married. "We've been married for years and been together for even longer," she said during the 2019 SAG Awards. "We had a good

Watchmen Season 2 Could Turn The Show Into An Anthology Series

The idea to adapt Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal comic book for TV sounded like a hugely risky move, but HBO’s Watchmen turned out to be a total success, earning big ratings and critical acclaim. Following the completion of the nine-episode first season earlier this month, DC fans are now desperate for more, but the way the recent run ended suggests this particular story set in the Watch-verse is over. It’s possible, though, that if season 2 does happen, it’ll transform the show into an anthology series.

While breaking down the events of the season 1 finale with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Damon Lindelof was asked if he is interested in making a follow-up run. The Ep declared that he is, but teased that maybe people shouldn’t be expecting a traditional season 2 formula.

“The answer to that question is yes, in the same way that I’m

A Huge ‘Watchmen’ Finale Easter Egg Was Hidden in the Teaser Poster All Along

Spoilers for the Watchmen finale follow below. The Watchmen finale made clear that showrunner Damon Lindelof and his writers had been leading viewers to this endpoint all along, going so far as to tease the endgame of the first (and only?) season in the teaser poster for the show that was released before a single episode had even aired. To recap, the Watchmen finale followed up on the reveal that Cal Abar (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) was actually Doctor Manhattan, with Lady Trieu (Hong Chau) working to capture Cal and take his powers. But as revealed in the tremendous penultimate …

Movies out of Hollywood – other American Cities on Film

  • HeyUGuys
There is no doubt that Hollywood is the movie capital of the Western world. The streets and avenues may not be paved with dreams but there are stars, studios and stories essential to our movie history around every corner.

Capturing the American City on camera, even going so far as to include the city as a character in the films however pretentious that may sound, has long been a feature of urban cinema. The diverse nature of the American city has given rise to many different types of stories, set against many different backdrops, but they are all part of the wide expanse of America’s cinematic heritage.

While L. A. movies have been covered often before, we are here to look at other American cities, the films that were based there, and how their character is captured on the screen.

Jennifer Lopez Is a Gifted Actress, So Why Do We Always Take Her for Granted?

Jennifer Lopez Is a Gifted Actress, So Why Do We Always Take Her for Granted?
When Jennifer Lopez and fiancé Alex Rodriguez showed up at a New York strip club in early 2019, Lopez kept a low profile, but asked the strippers to head her way. One of them offered her a lap dance. “I was like, ‘No, I just want to talk to you,” Lopez recalled in a recent interview, sitting in a room at Moma while Academy viewers watched her buzzy turn in “Hustlers.” “I hadn’t really been to strip clubs, so it was a whole new experience for me. I just asked them what it was like, when they come in, what their day-to-day was like, why they did things. Did they enjoy it?” Then she sat back and watched.

Lopez’s research for “Hustlers,” director Lorene Scafaria’s sizzling depiction of the real-life strippers who wound up drugging private clients and draining their bank accounts, has been well documented; it’s

Watchmen Episode 8 Easter Eggs Explained

Mike Cecchini Dec 9, 2019

The romance of Dr. Manhattan and Angela Abar is explained in Watchmen episode 8, which has keys to understanding both the show and the book.

This article contains major Watchmen episode 8 spoilers.

Welcome back, Dr. Manhattan! You weren’t really gone, anyway. Well, except for the time you were on Europa creating life. And the time you were actually on Mars before you left a decoy there to convince us you were still on Mars while you were quite literally playing God somewhere else. And of course, to your infuriating way of perceiving time, you were never actually gone at all.

In fact, much of Watchmen episode 8, "A God Walks Into Abar" is narrated as incredibly, impossibly compelling exposition by Dr. Manhattan in the course of his conversation with Angela. He does it in a manner that is just perfectly in tune with the way he narrates his

The Best New TV Shows of 2019

  • Indiewire
Until some overly ambitious tech company cracks a secret formula, figuring out what audiences are going to like is always going to have an air of impossibility. With the inundation of new series arriving every month — even in the holiday/vacation doldrums — there’s always an allure of the new. Shows with the richest of pedigrees, the slam-dunk, can’t-miss attention grabbers sometimes fall from the public consciousness before they’ve had a chance to find an audience.

So any time a show can sustain itself beyond its premiere week, it’s something of a miracle. As part of our ongoing hike back through the year in TV, we thought it would be worth noting the best of the shows that made their debut in 2019 and couldn’t be forgotten. Some didn’t quite have the fanfare that others did (and one is still ongoing).

Some were canceled far before they should have,

Influencers: Ai-Ling Lee, Aural Trailblazer

It’s the stuff of movie dreams. At the tender age of 19, movie-obsessed Singaporean sound editor Ai-Ling Lee decamped for Hollywood, armed only with some audio engineering training and a handful of local commercial gigs, intent on breaking into the mostly male-dominated world of film sound work. She papered the town with letters to studio brass, asking for the chance to simply sit in during post-production, all the better to learn her chosen craft from the ground up.

Two decades, two Oscar nominations, and an enviable assortment of projects later, Lee’s persistence has paid off. With her Best Sound Editing nod for her work on “La La Land,” she became the only Asian woman (so far!) to be nominated in the category. Even sweeter: the nomination was in tandem with her frequent partner Mildred Iatrou Morgan, making the duo the only all-female team to ever snag a spot in the category.

’21 Bridges’ Review: Chadwick Boseman Shuts Down Manhattan in This Bland, Predictable Thriller
Hollywood doesn’t pump-out many non-franchise action-thrillers these days, so perhaps we should be thankful for 21 Bridges. And perhaps that this movie hails from producers The Russo Brothers, a duo responsible for so many blockbuster franchise movies, is a good sign. But lordy, does the end result have to be so lifeless? 21 Bridges is a […]

Madigan

Manhattan detective Richard Widmark is up the creek without his .38 special — a maniac killer has stolen it. He’s desperate to get it back, while his personal and professional problems pile up. Henry Fonda, Inger Stevens and Harry Guardino give sterling performances, but the assured direction of Don Siegel is what keeps us on edge throughout. The classic crime saga pushed the limits of the incoming Ratings System — yet provided a style template for a decade of Universal cop shows. Siegel utilizes blunt jarring cutting effects to make its violence feel extra-intense — and for warped screen villainy, Steve Ihnat’s Barney Benesch has no equal — he has less than three minutes of screen time, but you’ll never forget him.

Adam Sandler on Oscar Buzz, Working With the Safdie Brothers and ‘Uncut Gems’ as a ‘Love Letter’ to New York City

Adam Sandler on Oscar Buzz, Working With the Safdie Brothers and ‘Uncut Gems’ as a ‘Love Letter’ to New York City
The many, mercurial moods of New York City and the jarring rhythm of its streets have long been among the greatest fascinations of film. “Serpico” and “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Mean Streets” and “Manhattan” all looked to break the frenetic pace of the city and expose, often as brashly as its subject, the virtuosic and irrepressible characters who walk its streets.

Uncut Gems,” the newest offering by “Good Time” creators Ben and Joshua Safdie, is an unhinged, frenetic study of a New York diamond jeweler, caught in a maniacal and unendurably suspenseful crescendo of gambling debts, adultery, and a last-ditch scheme to unload a million-dollar Ethiopian diamond.

Adam Sandler stars in the film, channeling the same manic and dramatic energy which Paul Thomas Anderson first drew from the comedian in “Punch-Drunk Love.” On the red carpet of the New York Film Festival, where the Film Society of Lincoln Center presented “Uncut Gems” Thursday night,

‘Evil’ Creators Robert and Michelle King on 30 Years of Debating the Nature of Evil

  • The Wrap
The origin of CBS’ new thriller-drama, “Evil,” came from a conversation the creators — and married couple — Robert and Michelle King have been having for more than 30 years: What is the nature of evil?

“Robert’s more religious, so he typically goes toward a divine explanation,” Michelle King told TheWrap. “I am more secular, so I tend to think things are the result of psychology or science.”

The outcome is a series that studies the intersection of science and religion — and the places where the lines blur.

‘Mrs. Maisel’ Star Rachel Brosnahan Is Ready to ‘Clap’ Her ‘Ass Off’ for Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the Emmys
This story about Rachel Brosnahan first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

This Emmy’s season marks Rachel Brosnahan’s second go-round for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, a category she won last year for her portrayal of Miriam “Midge” Maisel on Amy Sherman-Palladino’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” This time around, she’s up against such formidable adversaries as Natasha Lyonne from “Russian Doll,” Christina Applegate from “Dead to Me,” Catherine O’Hara from “Schitt’s Creek,” Phoebe Waller-Bridge from “Fleabag” — plus the most nominated and winningest woman in the history of the category, Julia Louis-Dreyfus from “Veep.”

“I am ready to lose gracefully, and stand on my feet and clap my ass off for Julia Louis-Dreyfus in September,” Brosnahan said, laughing to acknowledge that Louis-Dreyfus had won the category six years in a row before last year, when she wasn’t eligible.
