Our pop-culture guide to what’s in, what’s fading, and what’s definitely out.
Tag: Katie Holmes (1-10 of 59)
In honor of March Madness, EW is launching a tournament to determine the Greatest TV Couple of All Time. But before we can finalize the brackets, we are turning to you, our hopeless TV romantic readers, to decide which five couples – all part of a love triangle on their shows — make it out of a qualifying round to fill the final slots. Today, we’re debating Joey and Dawson versus Joey and Pacey on Dawson’s Creek.
Admit it, people: Whether you loved or despised America’s original hate-watching phenomenon back when it aired, on some level, you still care about Dawson‘s Creek. Maybe not enough to actually watch Don’t Trust the B– in Apt. 23, but definitely enough to want only the best for Michelle Williams. (She’s been through so much, you guys!) And caring about Dawson’s Creek necessarily means nursing a strong opinion about the show’s central love triangle, which cast BFFs Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) and Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) as rivals for the heart of one Josephine Potter (Katie Holmes).
The funny thing about this conflict is that it wasn’t always Dawson‘s main throughline. When the soap began in 1998, its plot hinged on a totally different love triangle — the one between budding filmmaker Dawson, his lovelorn pal Joey, and sexy, sophisticated big city transplant Jen (Williams). In the series’s 10th episode, though, Joey and sarcastic screwup Pacey were forced to work on a school science project together — and suddenly, the show’s writers realized that their snappy, Beatrice and Benedick-esque dynamic might be more interesting than Joey’s unrequited love for the boy who lived across the creek.
In just over a week, Broadway won’t have Joey Potter to kick around anymore.
The producers of Dead Accounts have announced that their comedy will close on Sunday, January 6 after just 44 regular performances (and 27 previews). The play stars Katie Holmes, Broadway mainstay Norbert Leo Butz, and Judy Greer of Arrested Development and Two and a Half Men fame.
Though Dead Accounts, written by Smash creator Theresa Rebeck, fared better than another star-studded production on Broadway this season — porn comedy The Performers, which closed the day after it opened — it failed to attract a large audience to the Music Box Theater. According to the New York Times, the play earned only 25 percent of its potential gross for the week ending December 23. Accounts also earned mixed to poor critical reviews; EW’s Thom Geier called it “engaging but unsatisfying,” though he praised Holmes as “effortlessly sympathetic” despite her underwritten character.

Katie Holmes is embarking on a new project.
The actress is currently starring on Broadway in the comedy Dead Accounts, which opened Nov. 29. In the exclusive clip below, check out the opening night fun with interviews of Victor Garber and Jessica Walter as they talk about their excitement over seeing the show, which in addition to Holmes stars Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz, Judy Greer, and others. The play explores the story of a con man who mysteriously comes into some money and upsets the order among his family. “It’s an extraordinary combination of morals, comedy, and money,” director Jack O’Brien declares.
“We have such a good time doing the show,” Holmes says in the clip. “And I love working with everyone.”

Katie Holmes, who made her Broadway debut four years ago in a revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, returns to the Great White Way next month in Dead Accounts, a new comedy by Smash creator Theresa Rebeck that’s become one of the most buzzed-about plays of the season.
In this exclusive clip, the former Mrs. Tom Cruise and her costar, two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz, talk about working together on the timely story of a con man who returns home suddenly flush with cash and upsets the order in his tight-knit family (including his sister, played by Holmes). The limited-run show, directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien, begins previews Nov. 3 before an official opening on Nov. 29.
Let’s face it: There are a whole lot of new stage productions opening in New York City this fall. Some shows boast legendary veterans like Al Pacino (left) and Sigourney Weaver. Others promise young stars like Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal. For still others, the title alone (a 50th anniversary revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, anyone?) may be the biggest draw. Here are the 10 that have us most eager to line up for tickets.
(Broadway) This tale of the world’s most optimistic orphan girl searching for a family is one of our greatest musicals. Its music is iconic (“It’s a Hard Knock Life,” “Tomorrow”), and the rags-to-riches story of its endearing protagonist (played by newcomer Lilla Crawford) has been warming hearts since it debuted in 1977 and won seven Tonys. In the hands of director James Lapine, who boasts three Tonys of his own, you can bet your bottom dollar it’ll be a hit. (Previews start Oct. 3; show opens Nov. 8)
