The upcoming Hillary Clinton movie Rodham is looking for its leading lady. (Which actress would you cast as Clinton? My pick is Nurse Jackie’s Merritt Wever.) The film, about the former Secretary of State’s early years of politics, is set to be released right around the next presidential election, which might not be a good thing. 

Comedy Central’s new standup/sketch series Inside Amy Schumer premieres tonight at 10:30 p.m. Will you tune in?

If you like the faux news site The Onion, you’ll love Reductress, a fake news magazine geared for women.

Sofia Coppola’s Bling Ring (starring Emma Watson) will be closing out the Seattle Film Festival on June 9. (Note to self: Check flights to Seattle.)
