There were obviously enough fans to keep him afloat for a while, “a while” meaning from the start of his tenure in June of 2017 at Barstool Sports. But the personality was going to doom

Showtime has canceled Andrew Dice Clay’s comedy series “Dice.”

The semi-autobiographical series chronicled Andrew Dice Clay, starring as himself, as he tried to live his life while trapped in the skin of “The Diceman.”

Hailing from Fox 21 Television Studios, “Dice” was created by Scot Armstrong (“Old School,” “The Hangover Part II”).

Is Infinity War Bringing Back Hela and the Ancient One?

Is Infinity War Bringing Back Hela and the Ancient One?
It looks like a couple of major characters may be returning for Avengers: Infinity War. The massive Marvel event movie looks to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to this point. That being the case, pretty much every major character is going to show up, if only briefly. And, if Mark Ruffalo is to be believed, that may even extend to quite recent and presumably dead characters.

During a recent interview on Michael Rapaport's I am Rapaport podcast, the man responsible for bringing Hulk to life was asked which actors left "the best impression" on him after having worked with them. He then proceeded to name drop both Cate Blanchett, whom he worked with on Thor: Ragnarok and, more surprisingly, Tilda Swinton, who portrayed The Ancient One in Doctor Strange. That's of particular note because, as far as we can tell,

Mark Ruffalo Reveals Two More Characters For Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel, Avengers 4, are set to be jam-packed affairs with every McU hero under the sun involved, but they’re still going to find room for numerous supporting characters as well. Everyone from popular picks like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts to minor players like Cindy from Spider-Man: Homecoming are said to be included and now, a new interview with Mark Ruffalo may have confirmed a few more additions to the party.

While chatting on Michael Rapaport’s podcast I Am Rapaport, Ruffalo was asked to name some of the actors he’s worked with that he was most in awe of. A couple of his suggestions were Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett, whom he revealed he had “just worked with.” Considering that Ruffalo’s last projects were the two Avengers movies, which were filmed back-to-back, it’s not hard to connect the dots and
