    By Danielle Berrin

    July 2, 2014 | 3:00 pm

    As soon as she arrives — beautifully made-up in shades of dark and light, her hair chocolate brown, her dress bridal white, asymmetrical at the thigh and firm at the bust — there’s the distinct feeling in the air that this could be the last lunch Israeli actress Moran Atias might...

    Actor Bob Odenkirk seems to be everywhere these days, on screens large and small.   Having burst into the comedy zeitgeist with series like “The Larry Sanders Show,” and “Saturday Night Live,” he’s best known for playing Saul Goodman, meth-cooker Walter White’s sleazy but...

  • What You Should Be Watching: Terriers

    By Zan Romanoff

    July 11, 2013 | 1:53 pm

    Billy Crystal will star in the network’s new half-hour series, “The Comedians,” according to The...
