Ray Donovan acting class: how to demonstrate range by standing

Ray Donovan acting class: how to demonstrate range by standing
You've got it all here: Eddie Marsan's threatening sideways lean, Jon Voight's insouciant turn askance, Liev Schrieber's straightahead hands-in-pockets furrowed look, Pooch Hall's lean with added gangsta hands, and Dash Mihok's unaccountable leg-spreading. There's not a male character archetype in the entire acting gamut that isn't covered by one of these stances. (I managed five episodes.)

Xena Agents of SHIELD cameo even better than Warhammer, say geeks
"This is unprecedented," a geek told us on hearing the news that Lucy Lawless is to guest-star on Agents of SHIELD season two. "Like all my Christmases come at once. Oh God you've put up a picture of her with Seven Of Nine off Voyager oh God OH GOD." He died later that day.

The bastards at Terminus have beaten him so bad, his moustache has slipped off his upper lip and into his mouth. Animals.

Courtney Love to make Sons of Anarchy all about her somehow
Courtney Love's new role as a nursery school teacher in Sons of Anarchy is to grow into one that dominates the show entirely whether anyone likes it or not, she has announced. "I'm planning to just photobomb all the scenes I'm not in," she said. "I'll do it so often that they'll either have to give up and use the footage anyway, or just fire me, in which case I'll complain endlessly in the press about how they victimised me. Don't underestimate the remarkable stamina I have where self-promotion is concerned."

Resurrection: an exciting new televisual concept
Successful US show Resurrection is heading for British TV. It is about a small American town in which dead people come back to life. A bit like brilliant French series Les Revenants (The Returned), which is about a small French town in which dead people come back to life.

Happy Absent, Unreliable Father's Day
This picture was shared by the official Mad Men Facebook page earlier today. Some of Don Draper's achievements as a father include:

  • marrying his children's mother and parenting them through their formative years under a false identity

  • sleeping with his daughter's teacher

  • getting caught by his daughter in bed with his neighbour

  • growing so bored at his daughter's birthday party that he gets drunk, goes out to pick up her cake and drives around with it for hours rather than going home.


Still, he did buy Sally some Beatles tickets. Happy Draper Day!

Spotted an ASTONISHING Friends Easter egg in Episodes
Season three, episode three: Carol and Castor are in front of a board showing the network schedule, arguing about whether Matt LeBlanc's "Pucks" should get cancelled. In the 8.30 timeslot is a show called "Six of One", which is the title under which the Friends pilot was shot. And I thought this was going to be a quiet Saturday.

Aaron Paul bloody loves Derek for some reason
This is despite the self-evident fact that it is an awful, cloying mess which paws guilelessly at your tear ducts like a baby ape trying to coax milk from an unyielding teat.
