‘Hacksaw Ridge’ & Its 15-Year Climb To Hollywood: Oscar-Nominated Producer David Permut Looks Back
“I didn’t believe it.”
That was producer David Permut’s initial response upon hearing about Desmond T. Doss, the World War II medic who saved over 75 men in the battle at Okinawa without ever picking up a gun.
“A medic on the front lines of World War II? I knew the combat medics needed to be trained in riflery,” says Permut, who with Hacksaw Ridge counts his first Oscar nomination in his 35-plus years as a producer. “When I found out it was true, I was astounded by… Read
Jimmy Fallon Debuts ‘This Week In Words’ On ‘Tonight Show’
The Tonight Show unveiled a new segment, in which the week's biggest news is curated into a montage called “This Week in Words.”
A perfect week to launch the feature, it included Donald Trump’s unhinged first solo news conference as POTUS, which Fallon noted The New York Times called “77 minutes of chaos,” adding, “it’s not good when your first press conference gets the same review as John Wick: 2.”
“It’s the end of another crazy week and because there’s too much to talk… Read
Milo Yiannopoulos Brings Out The Hate On Post-Show ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’ Segment – Update
UPDATE with Overtime video: What tonight’s Real Time With Bill Maher lacked in vitriol, the show’s YouTube Overtime segment more than made up for. Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopoulos falsely claimed that transgender people suffer “a psychiatric disorder” and shouldn’t be “around little girls,” eventually prompting curses from two of his three fellow panelists.
Comedian Larry Wilmore made up for the third panelist, Jack Kingston, by telling Yiannopoulos to “go f*ck” himself… Read
The Actor’s Side: Watch Pete Hammond’s Interviews With Eight Oscar Nominees
One of the great pleasures of this awards season has been the establishment of my new Deadline video series The Actor’s Side, in which I get to interview top acting contenders for the Oscars (and yes, we are happy to announce the series will continue during Emmy season, too). Of the 13 episodes we did this movie awards season, eight of those actors went on to receive Oscar nominations.
What makes this series special — and lasting — is that it focuses on the craft and… Read
‘Archer’ Season 8 Trailer: FXX Series Shifts Back In Time To 1940s Los Angeles
We’re getting the first look at Season 8 of Adam Reed’s cult hit animated series Archer, now on FXX after seven seasons at its sister network FX.
Season 8 also moves back in time to a noir-themed “Dreamland” set in 1940s Los Angeles, complete with a thriving jazz scene, mobsters, machine guns, and Lana cracking some not-so-great jokes.
Last fall, Reed talked about possibly ending the series after the tenth season.
“The plan is to end Archer after season 10,” he said on… Read
‘A Cure For Wellness’ Review: The Cure For This Overwrought Horror Pic Would Be To Cut About 50 Minutes
Gore Verbinski is a talented director who landed in movie jail with his bloated The Lone Ranger for Disney. But he hasn’t fared much better by shifting from Westerns to the horror genre with the intriguingly titled A Cure For Wellness, which at 146 minutes takes itself way too seriously while also taking its time. As I say in my video review above, even cutting 40 or 50 minutes and tightening this thing to resemble a B-horror thriller might not have made this confused… Read
‘Silicon Valley’ Season 4 Teaser: Richard Drops A Big Ol’ Bombshell
“I need to build something else.” With those six little words, Richard Hendricks sends his Pied Piper friends and colleagues careening in a new teaser for Season 4 of HBO’s acclaimed comedy Silicon Valley. Well, actually, it probably was two other words he speaks in the promo: “I’m quitting.”
Wait … what? (We agree, Gilfoyle.)
The bombshell news signals an apparent shift for codemeister Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) and his not-always-merry band of uber-techies… Read
Oscar Best Picture Nominees: The Deadline Reviews
Whenever you walk into a theater or screening room to review a movie you never know whether you are about to experience a masterpiece or a complete turkey. In the case of Oscar’s nine nominated Best Picture contenders this year — all of which I reviewed on video and in print for Deadline when they were first released — I am happy to say the Academy and I are totally in sync.
There is not a dud in the bunch, and in fact six of them landed on my own year-end Ten Best List… Read

Dev Patel Roars Like A ‘Lion’ This Oscar Season – The Actor’s Side
The movie that launched Dev Patel to U.S. audiences, 2008’s Slumdog Millionaire, went on to collect eight Oscars. But Patel personally has landed his first nomination this year in the Supporting Actor category for The Weinstein Co.’s Lion. Last Sunday, he took home the BAFTA for his turn in the Garth Davis movie. Lion has racked up six nominations and $70.8 million at the global box office.
In this edition of The Actor’s Side, Patel talks about the road that brought him… Read
Stephen Colbert: Donald Trump “Did Not Even Bring His Meds” To Gobsmacking News Conference
UPDATED with video: Stephen Colbert taped his opening monologue shortly after President Donald Trump wrapped his most nuanced performance to date at his very first solo news conference without foreign-dignitary training wheels.
"I'm glad you could be here on this historic evening," Colbert told his studio audience. "Evidently [Trump] did not even bring his meds with him. It was a robust one hour and 17 minutes long – so beefy you could eat it with a fork, but you're… Read
