How Alexis Arquette's 'Fiercely Defensive' Family Stood by Her on Her Transition Journey and Beyond

13 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Transgender actress and activist Alexis Arquette, who died Sunday morning at 47, was part of the Arquette family, one of Hollywood's largest and tightest-knit families. The thespian siblings - Rosanna, 57; Richmond, 53; Patricia, 48, and David, 45 - are the grandchildren of Cliff Arquette, one of the earliest radio and theater stars of the 20th century. Cliff's son Lewis would become known for playing J.D. Pickett on The Waltons from 1978–81 and moved the family to a commune in Virginia at one point. It was there, Alexis once recalled, that she began questioning her gender identity. The Arquettes' progressive nature meant that Alexis was supported from early on. »

But here is part of the statement written by Patricia Arquette, on behalf of the entire family.

"Our sister, Alexis Arquette, passed away this morning, September 11th, 2016. Alexis was a brilliant artist and painter, a singer, an entertainer and an actor. She starred in movies like Last Exit to Brooklyn, Pulp Fiction, Jumpin' at the Boneyard, Of Mice and Men, The Wedding Singer and The Bride of Chucky. Her career was cut short, not by her passing, but by her decision to live her truth and her life as a transgender woman. Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical. »

Who From Hollywood Got Prime Seats for the L.A. Rams

12 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The last time the NFL's Rams played a regular-season game inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum — a loss to New Orleans on Dec. 16, 1979 — Jerry Brown was California's governor, gas was expensive at 86 cents a gallon, and the Iran hostage crisis was six weeks old. Thirty-seven years later, Brown is governor (again), Iran remains a hot spot, gas is cheap at $2.70 a gallon, and — after 15 seasons in Anaheim and 21 in St. Louis — the Rams are back, opening at home Sept. 18 against Seattle.

We'll Never Forget Alexis Arquette Simply Because of This 1 Role

11 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Alexis Arquette died at age 47 on Sunday, and while she was known for her famous family (her brother is David Arquette, her sisters are Patricia and Rosanna Arquette), she was a fiercely talented actress in her own right. Alexis had 70 film and TV credits to her name, including Pulp Fiction, She's All That, and Friends. However, when I think of Alexis Arquette, there's one film that pops into my mind: 1998's The Wedding Singer. She played Robbie's (Adam Sandler) eccentric backup singer, George. No one could have played that part like she did, and her presence elevated that romantic comedy to a whole new level. Watch her shining moment, a gloriously unique version of Culture Club's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," above. It's impossible not to appreciate her genius. Fearless. She made such an impact in this role that Boy George himself spoke out about her death on Sunday. »

Did Kevin Owens Know About WWE Universal Title Win?! | WrestleTalk News

2 September 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

After Finn Balor’s shoulder injury meant he had to forfeit the title not even a day after he became its first holder at Summerslam, the new champion was to be decided in an elimination match between Big Cass, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens.

“Yeah, I’ve read that one before. Roman wins,” we all thought. But in the closing moments of the match, Triple H made his first WWE appearance since Wrestlemania 32, pedigreeing both Reigns and Rollins to give Owens the title.

Owens’ reaction appeared so genuine, along with Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon’s facial expressions at ringside, many thought the result was a swerve on all those involved. Did Owens actually not know he’d be winning the match?

Can Kiefer Sutherland still handle terrorism in 'Designated Survivor?'

30 August 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. "There are times when we make history, and there are times when history makes us." These are the awful last words of the U.S. President giving his State of the Union Address in Designated Survivor. It's quite a hacky speech, I gotta tell ya. And then -- Kaboom! Capitol Hill is destroyed. And one man is left standing. Kiefer Sutherland, a low-level cabinet member assigned to not be on Capitol Hill in case of this very occasion. Now he must assume the mantle of the Presidency!   And immediately, people are worried about it? Him? It's like they've never seen a middle-aged white man become President before. Why not him? We learn that he was fired the morning before this whole thing went down. Was he fired for writing the President's speech? »
