Jeffrey Tambor Departs ‘Transparent’ Amid Sexual Harassment Accusations
Jeffrey Tambor will not be returning to “Transparent,” reports Deadline. The news follows two different accusations of sexual harassment against the actor, who’s won a host of awards — including two Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a SAG Award — for his performance as Maura Pfefferman on the acclaimed Amazon drama.

“Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life,” Tambor told Deadline today. “What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago.”

Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” Parody by Harley Quinn

It’s not generally nice to make fun of people, but in terms of a parody of Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do by Harley Quinn, you can’t help but laugh. It helps to think of it not so much as making fun of Taylor Swift but really more of a good laugh at Batman and the Joker via Harley Quinn. It’s also a chance for adolescent boys and grown men to drool since the female cosplayer is rather good-looking and, um, in very good shape. As far as the singing goes she’s got it down just about perfect,

Lizzy Caplan is Returning to Her ‘Party Down’ Roots on ‘Ill Behaviour,’ and She’s Very Excited About It
Lizzy Caplan is great at playing dark, jaded, and edgy characters. She hates that word — “edgy” — but she still uses it to describe Nadia, her role on the new Showtime acquisition, “Ill Behaviour.”

“I think the perception of me is that I played this type of screw-up a lot,” Caplan said in an interview with IndieWire. “It was a return to something familiar, but playing this type of sardonic– I hate the word edgy, but edgy screw-up, in a situation that was completely novel was exciting. I wanted to put back on my black T-shirts and my smeary eye makeup and get back on that horse again for a minute.”

The novel situation she refers to is indeed that: Nadia is a doctor called upon to illegally administer chemotherapy to an unwilling patient. Played by her husband, Tom Riley, Charlie wants to tackle his cancer with alternative medicine, but his

The Top Five Cheesiest Arnold Schwarzenegger One Liners in Movies

Arnold Schwarzenegger has done pretty well in his career, but there are some supremely cheesy one-liners that he’s served up throughout the years. It used to be that he could barely speak English and be understood, but after that was dealt with the 80’s and 90’s treated him to some of the worst lines he’d ever had in his life. It wasn’t bad enough that his accent still made some words hard to understand, but giving a guy with a noted film history like his the kind of one-liners that make people laugh at an actor and think that their

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Review: Gilmore Girls Banter Meets Vintage Woody Allen, With a Feminist Twist
Amy Sherman-Palladino’s characters are always so casually witty, it’s about time one of them actually tried being funny for a living, right?

The pilot introduces us to Midge (Rachel Brosnahan), a quirky, quippy Jewish spitfire in the Lorelai Gilmore mold. (She’s the type who
