'The Normal Heart': Inside Ryan Murphy's HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's acclaimed play -- EXCLUSIVE

Larry Kramer’s Tony award-winning 1985 play The Normal Heart—which details the ominous spread of HIV/AIDS among a group of gay men in 1980s New York City—is finally getting a movie adaptation on the small screen. Directed by American Horror Story and Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy, Heart will premiere this spring on HBO and features a star-studded cast including Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, and Taylor Kitsch (below, in a photo Ruffalo tweeted out this summer). “It’s a movie about AIDS, but it’s also really a civil rights movie,” says Murphy, who worked with Kramer on the script for three years. “I think it’s more timely than ever before. It’s really about the quest to be seen, not as a gay person or a straight person but just a person…. It’s an activist movie that also has a really great love story in it.” Adds the director, “Of everything I’ve done in my career, I think it is the biggest labor of love.” READ FULL STORY

'Grimm': Alexis Denisof teases 'charismatic' new villain -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Alexis Denisof is trying to rule the world. But as his character will learn quickly after making his debut on NBC’s Grimm on Friday, it’s much easier said than done.

“His goal is the be the center and ruler of the entire universe and so he’s eliminating all obstacles,” Denisof says of his character, Viktor, cousin of Sean Renard and the late Eric. “It’s not easy to rule the world and there are quote a few steps along the way….He’s stepping into a very complicated situation.”

For one, he’s out for revenge for the death of Eric, who was killed earlier this season. “He has his suspicions of the who, what, when, and where of the murder, and he brings Adalind into his alliance to figure out the details of that.”

In all, taking on the role of Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendor (say that three times…) has been a joy thus far, says Denisof, who reunited with “old pal” Angel executive producer David Greenwalt in taking on the role. “He’s sort of a charismatic megalomaniac,” he says. “I like the character because he’s doing everything with confidence and panache. He’s the poshest character I’ve ever attempted.”

Denisof will first appear on Friday but has shot four episodes so far, with more in the works. “I hope he’ll be the villain you love to watch,” he says. “There are villains who are just creepy, they do the job of scaring you and they leave. But in this case, I think there’s much more to relish.”
