Today’s character actor who’s been around for what seems like forever is Beth Grant. Grant goes all the way back to 1988’s Rain Man when she appeared as the housewife in that farmhouse when Charlie knocks on her front door to watch Judge Wopner in order to prevent Ray from having a freak out session. She also played the obsessed teacher in Donnie Darko. She also played Dennis Quaid’s mom in The Rookie. All

“Oh, women hate me,” Mellencamp said. “I loved Meg Ryan. She hates me to death.”
When Stern asked why Ryan would “hate” the singer, the rock star elaborated, “I think it’s because I’m a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, »

The series about a future run by corporations giving them unlimited power and a man from a poor background (Sean Teale) who infiltrated their world in an attempt to save his childhood love.

Judge Joseph Wapner, who famously presided over The People’s Court, has died. He was 97.
Wapner was first hospitalized last week complaining of breathing problems. He was eventually relocated to his Los Angeles residence on Friday as his condition worsened, where he remained under hospice care until his death on Sunday morning.

The campaign caught attention but remained abstract, leaving little clue as to what the show was actually about.

While January doesn't often produce huge box office hits, fans have come out in full force for Oscar-nominated films like Hidden Figures and La La Land, which both continue to fare well with solid box office numbers throughout the month. Last weekend, M. Night Shyamalan's Split over-performed with an impressive box office win with $40 million, and it was certainly expected to repeat, even with three new releases hitting theaters. Joining the box office fray this weekend is Sony's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Universal's A Dog's Purpose and The Weinstein Company's Gold. The race was expected to be much closer, but Split took advantage of a minimal second weekend drop to easily win with $26.2 million
The estimates from Box Office Mojo reveal that Split actually expanded into 161 more theaters for a total of 3,199, which may have helped minimize the traditional second weekend drop. The M. Night Shyamalan thriller only dropped 34.3% in its second weekend, »
