  • DailyDead
Under amazing makeup effects, he stole our hearts as Billy the zombie in Hocus Pocus, warmed our souls as Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, and sent chills down our spines as one of the Gentlemen on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For his role in We've Forgotten More Than We Ever Knew, actor Doug Jones is not accompanied by practical prosthetics, but he's just as mesmerizing as ever. With Thomas Woodrow's post-apocalyptic film hitting digital and VOD platforms beginning November 21st from The Orchard, I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Jones, and in part 1 of the interview, we dive deep into his new intriguing role that required him to portray an intense paralysis.

  • The Wrap
As national Republicans continue to abandon Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, the Republican has taken to Twitter to defend himself. But ordinary Twitter users might have difficulty sussing out the real Roy Moore since the platform has consistently declined to verify his personal account on the social media platform and bless his profile with the coveted blue check mark. The account of Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, is verified. Also Read: Mashable Managing Editor Blasts 'A-holes' on Forbes 30 Under 30 List Small but telling programming note.

People Explains: Who Is Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore — and Does He Still Have a Chance to Win?

  • PEOPLE.com
Almost nothing about Roy Moore’s candidacy for Senate has been without controversy.

First, he challenged incumbent Luther Strange, who had been appointed to replace Jeff Sessions when he was tapped by President Donald Trump to serve as U.S. Attorney General. During the primary, he waved a gun at an election eve campaign rally, lacked support from the Republican establishment and has called Islam a “false religion.”

But none of that scared off Alabama voters on Sept. 26, who supported Moore in the Republican primary runoff for Sessions’ vacated Senate seat.

The former chief justice for Alabama’s Supreme Court defeated Strange,

Trailer Watch: Sally Hawkins Makes a Run for It in “The Shape of Water”

The Shape of Water

“He’s coming for you,” Sally Hawkins is warned in the final trailer for “The Shape of Water.” Set against the backdrop of Cold War era U.S. circa 1963, the otherworldly fairy tale sees Hawkins playing Elisa, a lonely and isolated mute woman who works at in a hidden, high-security government laboratory. Elisa forms an intense connection with a mysterious creature (Doug Jones, “Hellboy”) being held captive in the lab for classified experiments.

Much stands between Elisa and the creature’s happy ending — including the fact that a lab employee, Strickland (Michael Shannon, “Loving”), is determined to take the creature apart to learn how it works. It’s he who is coming for Elisa. Along with the help of some friends, she’s engineered and executed a plot — complete with synchronized watches and obstructed security surveillance — to free the creature.

The new Red Band spot shows just how much of a threat — and asshole — Strickland is. In the midst of asking Elisa and a co-worker what they know about the missing creature, he says, “What am I doing interviewing the shit cleaners?” We also see him torturing the creature, claiming that he’s merely “keeping it tame.”

Check out the trailer to see Elisa’s covert mission in action. Directed by Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”), “The Shape of Water” hits theaters December 8. Vanessa Taylor (“Divergent”) co-wrote the script with del Toro. Octavia Spencer (“Hidden Figures”) co-stars.

Hawkins is earning Oscar buzz for the film, which has been receiving raves since it premiered at Venice Film Festival in August. She previously earned a nod for “Blue Jasmine” in 2014. She was last seen earlier this year in “Maudie,” Aisling Walsh’s critically acclaimed biopic about Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis.

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×08: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum’ Review

In the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery, one thing that the Klingons made clear is the fact the Federation may say they come in peace, but many times they don’t. This week that peacefulness is put to the test on a new planet.

When U.S.S. Discovery takes a high priority mission to a planet called Pahvo they encounter a new lifeform. When the lifeform offer Saru (Doug Jones) a way to calm the unrest in his mind, it once again pits him against Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) who fights to keep them on mission.

One thing that I’m starting to notice with Star Trek: Discovery is that there is a cycle of episodes. We have the ship based ones, ones that feature more of the Klingons, then ones that question the Prime Directive and how the crew of Discovery can manage to bend the rules around it.
