Anthony Mackie Will Play Johnnie Cochran In Signal Hill Case Film

3 May 2016 3:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Actor Anthony Mackie continues to capitalize on his excellent work in Marvel’s Captain America franchise, with the announcement that he will play legendary late lawyer Johnnie Cochran in a film about the Signal Hill police brutality case that hit the headlines back in 1981.

Mackie will also serve as producer on the project, which is gaining traction in the wake of the recent miniseries The People V O.J Simpson: American Crime Story – a show that shone a light on the back-room machinations of one of Cochran’s most high profile cases. But, long before Cochran was representing the likes of Simpson, Michael Jackson, Sean Combs, Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and Marion Jones, he was an advocate for victims of police brutality – and it is this element of his career that the new movie will focus on.

Having spent time in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, Johnnie Cochran »

Coachella: 5 Things to Look Out for at the 2016 Festival

15 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Guns N’ Roses, Re-loaded:

The legendary rock band is reuniting for the first time in over 20 years — but there’s still much room for speculation in what could turn out to be an even more major surprise reunion.

Coachella will bring together Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, but no word on remaining originals Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler, nor which members from Guns N Roses’ latest lineup will be involved. Axl Rose and Slash have not reunited since 1993 so that reunion alone is huge news for hardcore fans, but rumbling rumors on social media have hinted that Stradlin and Adler could turn up in Indio, Calif.

The festival will serve as a kickoff of sorts for the upcoming Guns N’ Roses “reunion” tour, which the band has confirmed will span across 21 cities in North America with Axl Rose, Slash and McKagan — but yet again, no word on who else »

4 April 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

American Sniper” actor Cory Hardrict has signed on to star in the Hulu drama “When the Street Light Goes On.”

Odessa Young is also set to topline the pilot, which Steve Golin and Michael Sugar are producing for Anonymous Content, along with “Mr. Robot” producer Chad Hamilton. “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” helmer Alfonso Rejon-Gomez is directing the pilot.

The show centers on the residents of a small town who grapple with the ruthless killing of a young girl and a teacher. Hardrict will play Officer Teddy Green, the police chief’s second in command — a competent detective who underestimated the small-town job. However, he’s sharp enough to spot something on a surveillance video that turns out to be a vital clue.

Hardrict has a number of films scheduled for release this year, including Legendary’s “Spectral” opposite James Badge Dale; “November Criminals” opposite Chloe Grace Moretz »
