Pablo Schreiber as Pornstache. If you don’t already follow Pablo Schreiber on Twitter, you should . One, because he has a cute picture of himself on a hammock as his background. And two, because if you were to point something like that out to him — which his followers often do — he’d probably retweet and gently chide you for it. It’s funny! And fitting, given that he plays the insults-slinging corrections officer in Orange Is the New Black . We spoke to Schreiber about developing that character (who, jokes aside, is much more sadistic than any human should be); re-teaming with creator Jenji Kohan, whom he worked with on Weeds ; and acting alongside so many women. [ There are occasional spoilers, noted in advance, if you haven’t watched all thirteen episodes. ] I was sad it see on your Twitter that the mustache isn’t real. Well, what’s real , Patti? You know? It was glued to my face every day — that felt pretty real to me. Did you try to grow one out but couldn’t? No. I had no interest in wearing that thing on my face other than when I was shooting. I like that you’re appropriately judgmental of Twitter followers who ask you for things like mustache rides. [ Laughs. ] Wouldn’t you be, Patti? Wouldn’t you be? Yes. Pornstache is gross. Were you expecting the sort of reaction you’ve gotten to him? Were you ever considered for the role of John Bennett? Weeds with Jenji and because the character on Weeds was this very sexualized character — there was a kind of oohing and ahing on the Internet about how sexy the character was and blah blah blah . And so part of doing this role for me was about messing with people’s expectations. Because there was this desire to peg me as the sexy guy, I really wanted to turn that on its head. And so when I saw the script for Orange Is the New Black , I was actually considered for Larry [played by Jason Biggs], strangely enough. Jenji was like, “Oh, I’d love to work with you, we have this … [Read more...] about ’s Pablo Schreiber on Playing Pornstache and All the Show’s Estrogen

Steven Spielberg will executive produce a live-action TV series based on the video-game franchise Halo, he announced today at an Xbox event. The show, World of Halo , is for Xbox Live — which means Microsoft is getting into the original programming game, too. On the one hand, hey, anyone would kill to get Steven Spielberg onboard with a project! On the other hand, his most recent shows are the nonentity Falling Skies and the short-lived Smash, The River , and Terra Nova . No word yet on when exactly the show will launch or what exactly we’d have to do to get Beyoncé’s “Halo” in there somehow. … [Read more...] about Steven Spielberg Is Making a Halo TV Show
February 07, 2021 - 21:11 GMT Brandi Fowler Alicia Keys almost broke the internet in this sizzling pre-Super Bowl sparkly look. The songstress is set to perform in the big game tonight. Alicia Keys made jaws drop ahead of her Super Bowl performance Sunday night.RELATED: Alicia Keys swears by this beauty savior - and it's under $50 Alicia stunned fans when she shared photos wearing a rhinestone bra The songstress stunned when she popped up on Instagram Friday hitting a squat pose in front of an aluminum garage front wearing a rhinestone-encrusted bra and high-waist leather black trousers tied at the waist. She completed the look with a pair of gorgeous gold and diamond earrings, and her hair pulled back into a low ponytail, wrapped with a silver band. SHOP: The best Valentine's Day gifts for her “Can’t talk right now, I’m doing hot girl (explicit),” she captioned the post, referencing one of Megan Thee Stallion’s lyrics. “Man I gotta get me a crystal bra,” one of her followers wrote. “Yas! You do,” Alicia responded, adding blowing kiss emojis. “Pheewwww! Queen! Wow to these pictures sis,” another chimed in. The “Girl Is On Fire” singer’s husband, Swizz Beatz also replied, posting an emoji with a thermometer in its mouth. If you take one look through Alicia’s Instagram photos you can see why this wasn’t a look fans were expecting. Much like her general vibe, the singer’s style tends to be laid-back, casual, and cool. But this bold, statement-making outfit made us wonder if she’s going to continue that trend for her post-Super Bowl performance this evening. We’ll just have to wait and see. Read more HELLO!

From stem to stern, it was a night of keeping up appearances, a simulation of normalcy in a year where normal doesn’t seem possible. Photo: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for TW Ten winters ago, a trove of snaking, lascivious R&B tracks appeared seemingly out of thin air, credited to someone or thing called the Weeknd. They were studies in stark contrasts: “Loft Music” floated gossamer samples of Brooklyn indie rockers Beach House over trap drums, and “What You Need” sunk a sample of Aaliyah’s voice under gauzy synths, her whisper bubbling up through the watery mix like a lover emerging from a warm bath, all of this in service to an angelic voice uttering the most devilish advances. The singer, an East Toronto native and recent college dropout named Abel Tesfaye, gave voice to our darkest late-night moods, to the allure of pushing a body past its limit in pursuit of pleasures both psychedelic and carnal. In March 2011, the Weeknd released House of Balloons, a mixtape sequenced like a journey through the highs, lows, and lonesome aftereffects of a wild night out, setting the scene by advising the listener in the first song that “You’ll wanna be high for this,” then wandering through strip clubs, parties, and after parties to the inevitable anxieties and pangs of withdrawal that surface as you sweat everything out the next day. The Weeknd turned R&B on its head without showing his face. Without glossy videos or a lively social-media presence — this in the days before Instagram caught on — Abel lingered in your head like stifled urges. In the intervening years, Tesfaye has evolved from an invisible man into a ubiquitous one, careful pivot by careful pivot, logging increasingly successful hits increasingly removed from the chunky, post-genre soup of his early mixtapes. The sound got cleaner. Tesfaye sought out pop and dance music veterans like Daft Punk and Max Martin and duetted with Ed Sheeran and … [Read more...] about So Now the Weeknd Is Our Collective Escape From Hell?

Photo: D Dipasupil/FilmMagic The following essay is an excerpt from comedian and Good Girls star Retta’s new memoir, So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y’all Don’t Even Know, out May 29. One day in the fall of 2005, I was sitting on my couch, eating Cabaret crackers and watching TV, when I got a call from my manager. “This is big,” he said. Mmm-hmm. I wasn’t falling for that old line. Last time I heard that, I was sent to audition for a part on a kid’s show … with no lines. How do you audition for a part with no lines? Exactly. “Are you sitting down?” I was sitting down. I’m always sitting down. I’d just bought a used DVD set of The Shield and was deep into the corruption of the LAPD Rampart Division. I was on about my 435th episode watching Michael Chiklis, aka The Commish, perpetrate some helluh shady shit. Yo, that show was deep. Rill deep. So, yeah, I was sitting. “This is really big.” Alright. Spit it out already. “We got you an audition for Dreamgirls,” he said, then paused for maximum dramatic effect. “The lead.” Record scratch. What? The Tony-award-winning Broadway musical was being turned into a mainstream movie, and I was being called in to audition for the iconic role of Effie White, the talented but temperamental singer fired from the Dreamettes, an all-girl group that was a thinly veiled version of Motown’s The Supremes. The star-studded cast would be: Yes, Retta. Why not Retta? This was the call I’d been waiting for my whole life; it was the opportunity of a lifetime. I was so incredibly grateful and proud, and yet the biggest feeling I had wasn’t excitement. It was dread. And I am telling you, I did not want to go. Which was insane because I’d always considered myself a pretty fearless person when it came to performing, ever since I’d belted out “Chim Chim Cher-ee” from Mary Poppins in a second-grade … [Read more...] about The Story of How Retta Screwed Up Her Audition for Effie in
