Teaser Trailer for NBA Referee Betting Scandal Drama 'Inside Game'

"All we're waiting on is for you to say yes." Raw Milk + iDreamMachine have unveiled a trailer for a film titled Inside Game, a dramatic feature inspired by the 2007 NBA Betting Scandal, "that the NBA doesn’t want you to see!" The betting scandal involved a NBA referee and bookie, who worked together to rig games and earn payoffs. The indie film stars Scott Wolf, Eric Mabius, Will Sasso, Lindsey Morgan, Berto Colon, Reggie Lee, and Michael O'Keefe. "Inside Game is an inside look at the lives affected by people who think they are above the law" showing that they will always get caught. This doesn't look that great, a bit too cheap, but it's hard to say this early. I'd recommend watching Soderbergh's High Flying Bird instead. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Randall Batinkoff's Inside Game, direct from YouTube: Set in Philadelphia, the film details

Kevin Spacey's Sexual Assault Case Dismissed Due to ''Unavailability of Complaining Witness''

Kevin Spacey's Sexual Assault Case Dismissed Due to ''Unavailability of Complaining Witness''
Update: The sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey has been dropped due to the "unavailability of the complaining witness," according to court documents obtained by E! News. In a press release the District Attorney for the Cape and Islands District Michael O'Keefe further explained that the case was dropped because, "a defendant cannot be convicted on the uncorroborated testimony of an immunized witness." Furthermore, the district attorney asserts that granting immunity to the witness "compromises the witness to a degree which... makes the further prosecution untenable." E! News has reached out to Spacey's attorney for comment. _______ Kevin Spacey was arraigned in...

Roseanne: What Ever Happened to Jackie's Son Andy? We Have Answers

Though I was an avid watcher of Roseanne growing up, I definitely forgot that Roseanne's sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) gave birth to a baby boy named Andy Harris. How did this important detail slip my mind? Well, it's been many years since I watched the show before the reboot was announced last year, so I was taken by surprise to rediscover the fun fact that, yes, Jackie is indeed a mom.

In the show, Jackie has a one night stand with Dan's (John Goodman) co-worker, Fred Oakland (Michael O'Keefe), and becomes pregnant. Jackie gives birth to Andy two months after tying the knot with Fred, which ultimately ends in divorce after he accuses her of adultery. With this resurgence of information flooding back into my memory, I did some digging to find out if Andy, who was played by different babies during the show's original run, would make an appearance in the revival.

The Sexual Revolution Is Here in 'Masters of Sex' Season 3 Trailer

It's 1966 and the sexual revolution is heating up - thanks, in part, to the stunning sex study completed by Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson.

Season 3 of Showtime's "Masters of Sex" begins five years after last year's finale, with collaborators/lovers Bill (Michael Sheen) and Virginia (Lizzy Caplan) ready to take their published study on the road.

Still in the picture is Bill's wife, Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald), though she seems to have undergone her own sexual awakening over the years. As the trailer shows, she was always curious about "what it felt like ... with you" - meaning Libby!

This season introduces a major new character played by former "Good Wife" star Josh Charles. Daniel Logan is a businessman looking to sell the "smell of sex" in a bottle, and his relationship to the couple - particularly Virginia - becomes complicated. We'll also meet Virginia's parents, as played by Frances Fisher and Michael O'Keefe.

Aff Review: Finding Neighbors

When was the last time you talked to your next door neighbor? With all of the crazy reports out there in the news today, it seems that we as human beings have become more closed off to the world. I recall having a realization that, after almost one-and-a-half years of living in my apartment, I had never introduced myself to (or even seen) the person next door. I'm sure I looked rather foolish making an introduction after so long, but it seemed so unusual to live right next door to someone and not know anything about them -- even their name. Writer/director Ron Judkins explores this exact topic in his latest film, Finding Neighbors.

Sam (Michael O'Keefe) is a graphic novel artist, famous for works he did many years ago. It appears that he's hit a lull in his career and is struggling to create anything for his latest

Casting Near-Misses: Sting in 'The Terminator'?

Casting Near-Misses: Sting in 'The Terminator'?
It's hard to think of James Cameron's The Terminator starring anyone other than Linda Hamilton, Michael Biehn, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the killer cyborg from the future. But what if Sting was the one traveling back to the '80s to prevent the machines from taking over? Or Bruce Springsteen on the run with Rosanna Arquette? Or Mickey Rourke? A comprehensive new book about the hugely successful franchise, Terminator Vault, reveals some interesting casting choices revealed in memos and other documents from the capricious pre-production process...

Et's Complete Holiday Movie Guide

Back in January of 1983, an offer of $350,000 went out to Sting to take on the role of Kyle Reese, but the Police frontman was not able to accommodate with a world tour coming that June as well as a May 13th commitment to star in Dune (and the world would definitely not want to miss seeing him in that spiky red hair and ridiculous futuristic
