The Tremors worms are coming for a new set of actors: Megan Ketch — who fronted CBS’ American Gothic and recurred on Jane the Virgin as Susanna Barnett — will star opposite Kevin Bacon in Syfy’s sequel pilot.

19 September 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

The only thing that connects better than LEGOs is Kevin Bacon. That's right, this prolific superstar can be connected to any actor in the industry by no more than six degrees of separation.

Directors Guild of America Fines Jill Soloway, Amazon Over ‘I Love Dick’ Credits

14 September 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Directors Guild of America has leveled a six-figure fine against Amazon Studios and Jill Soloway over allegations of misconduct from directors on the “I Love Dick” series, sources have told Variety.

Representatives for the DGA, Amazon, and Soloway had no comment. A source told Variety that the directors complained that DGA rules had been violating as they did not receive credit for scenes they shot that subsequently appeared in other episodes. They also alleged that Soloway’s activities on the set had interfered with their jobs.

Soloway has extensive television credits as a producer, director, and writer dating back to “Six Feet Under,” “United States of Tara,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Soloway won the best director award at the Sundance Film Festival for the 2013 film “Afternoon Delight,” then won a DGA Award and two Emmys for episodes of “Transparent.”

After decades in the industry, Kyra Sedgwick knows that Hollywood can be tough. So naturally, she has fears about her and husband Kevin Bacon‘s daughter, Sosie Bacon, following her parents’ career path.

Flatliners Remake Character Posters Stare Death in the Face

30 August 2017 5:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just under one month left until Sony Pictures' Flatliners remake hits theaters, the studio has released four new character posters that shows completely different sides to the main characters. The posters feature Ellen Page's Courtney, Diego Luna's Ray, Nina Dobrev's Marlo and Kiersey Clemons' Sophia. While each of these characters has a seemingly normal expression, these one-sheets literally show another side of them, and it's clear they're truly terrified.

The posters surfaced on the Flatliners Twitter earlier today, although it remains uncertain if we'll get any more footage between now and the September 29 release date. The first Flatliners trailer didn't debut until mid-June, and with the release just a few weeks away, hopefully there will be more footage for fans to explore, before this reboot hits theaters. For fans of the original movie, there will be a familiar face involved, although he isn't seen on any of these posters. »

The Great British Bake Off 2017, episode one – as it happened

29 August 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Did Bake Off burn its bottom with the move to Channel 4, or did it rise like a phoenix?

9.22pm BST

So what do we think? It’s long, and adverts are...wearing. But Sandi and Noel could work well if they relax, and the bakers themselves impressed. There are a few artists in there. I’d say that last round alone warranted another week’s watching.

I also imagine GeneralMittens is bang on the money with what happens next, but I can’t print that up here. Shame on you. Er, General.

9.14pm BST

Is it dark because they make them stay in the grounds until they cry on camera?

Next week is biscuits. I do want to see if Sandi and Noel relax, plus I’m contractually obliged. But I’d love to see you all again!

9.12pm BST

A worthy win for Steven. And Peter is sent home. »

The A-List Ladies Inner Circle: How Hollywood's Biggest Actresses Are All Connected

28 August 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hollywood is a small town, but it just got even smaller. The A-list isn't a new concept in Tinseltown and it's no secret that there's a select group of people who can considered to be stars of the highest caliber. But what people might not realize is that the A-list is basically one exclusive club of interconnected actors and actresses—it's like that old game, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, only Kevin Bacon isn't actually invited this time because it's just that exclusive.  After some very exhaustive research it's easy to come to the conclusion that, in fact, the group of actors at the top of their craft is so insular that they basically make up one big movie cast. It's no wonder that »
