Since "Louie" was last on the air, its star and creator, Louis C.K. has been having a moment. He won the AFI Award for best TV series, got two Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a comedy, and has breaking ground in terms of cutting out the middle man, selling tour tickets and his stand-up special directly to consumers (and in the latter case, giving much of the money to charity). All that, and he's been cast in Woody Allen's next film too.

Making his name famously or infamously (depending how you look at it) as a writer and producer on the hit ABC series "Lost," Damon Lindelof's career has moved moved in leaps and bounds. With "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Prometheus" under his belt and "Star Trek 2," "World War Z" and the mysterious "1952" on the horizon, he's a highly sought after name for blockbuster material, and one might think the small screen is just not that interesting of a challenge anymore. Well, guess again.

We're living in something of a golden era of documentary filmmaking. Whether on the big screen, and more frequently on cable -- where a plethora of specialty channels offer a variety of outlets -- documentaries can more easily reach an audience than ever before. But are they making an impact? It seems that every doc that comes along is pushing some kind of issue or agenda, but that little of that is felt once the credits roll ninety minutes later. But every now and then comes a movie that shakes the ground just a little bit, and not only opens eyes, but inspires action and "Granito: How To Nail A Dictator" is a remarkable chronicle of one film that did just that.

Perhaps it has something to do with being young forever -- a familiar quest for many in Hollywood -- that resonates so clearly with executives, but it seems they can't get enough of Peter Pan. Earlier this year, the Channing Tatum-produced "Neverland" landed "Warrior" helmer Gavin O'Connor in the director's chair, and in 2011 another movie called "Pan" lined up Aaron Eckhart, AnnaSophia Robb and Sean Bean (but has yet to be shot). But really, fairytales in general are big business, with "Snow White And The Huntsman" proving to be a hit, and "Once Upon A Time" and "Grimm" also doing well on the small screen. So let's saturate the market!

Walter White is back...bitch. And we're fucking stoked. After an absolutely hair-raising season four, easily the best of "Breaking Bad" so far, with a phenomenal finale that now positions Walter White (a badass Bryan Cranston) to take over the game for himself, a new trailer for season five has dropped and outside of anything at the multiplex, this is one of our most anticipated pieces of entertainment this summer.

If there’s one show that abides strictly to the current sentiment that television is fast becoming (or is already) more mature, dramatic, and well-made than mainstream films, many would agree that it would have to be AMC’s Matthew Weiner-created “Mad Men.” With the series just wrapping up its fifth season, leaving the future of many of the series’ long-running characters in doubt, one particular actress has spoken out about the fate of her character on the series. Caution, spoilers ahead!

(Former) shock rocker (is he all that shocking anymore?) Marilyn Manson seems to be enjoying this whole acting thing. He's done bit parts here and there over the years ("Party Monster" and "Jawbreaker" among them), but it seems he's taking a bigger step toward movie roles. He already has a stint in Quentin Dupieux's "Wrong Cops" and how he's headed to cable. Brian Warner will stretch his wings playing himself in a guest spot on Showtime's "Californication" starring David Duchovny. Production on the series is now underway and you can see the longawaited Manson/Duchovny pairing in 2013 on the seventh season's seventh episode. [THR]
