'Empire' Star Taraji P. Henson -- Sorry Terrence ... The N-Word Is Nope

  • TMZ
There's a big divide between "Empire" star Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard ... he wants more of an authenticity boost but she doesn't want the N-word anywhere near their hit show.  Our TMZ photog asked Henson straight up if she thinks "Empire" should use the inflammatory word to give the show street cred. Seems she's siding with writer David Rambo.  It's a pretty touchy issue, and she thinks it's a button showrunners might not want to push.

Katharine Hepburn Biopic by Indie Producers in the Works (Exclusive)

Katharine Hepburn Biopic by Indie Producers in the Works (Exclusive)
A biopic about Hollywood icon Katharine Hepburn is in development by independent producers, based on William J. Mann’s “Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn.”

Producers are Richard Akel and Janice Hammond of Four Stars International, and Michael Mosca of Starling Road Productions of Montreal, Canada. Mann will serve as executive producer and consultant.

The picture will be directed by British helmer Clare Beavan, whose credits include BBC’s “Daphne” about novelist Daphne Du Maurier. Producers have hired Michael Zam and Jaffe Cohen, who wrote “Best Actress” about Joan Crawford and Bette Davis’ rivalry, to adapt “Kate.”

The movie will focus on Hepburn’s early years in Hollywood, exploring how she recreated herself from outsider into one of the greatest stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Producers plan to surround the main story of the ambitious 25-year-old with accounts of an androgynous teen and a cantankerous 80-year-old legend trying to

Revolution, Ep. 2.21: “Memorial Day” forgets our heroes at the end

Revolution, Season 2, Episode 21: “Memorial Day”

Written by David Rambo and Bed Edlund

Directed by John F. Showalter

Airs Wednesdays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

The penultimate episode of this series features not one, but two train thefts. The first is an all-action set piece; the second, an old fashioned stick up. Yet all of the effort put forth by both sets of thieves into capturing the vehicles is for naught, as the big twist shows that the Patriots used the train as a diversion, with the actual mustard gas hovering above a meeting of the Texas and U.S. presidents.

It’s a neat little twist to keep our heroes well away from the location of a mass murder, but there’s a major drawback to that as well: it keeps our heroes away from the location of a mass murder. The final scene plays out with none of our protagonists in sight,

Revolution, Ep. 2.16: “Exposition Boulevard” is all about the kids

Revolution, Season 2, Episode 16: “Exposition Boulevard”

Written by David Rambo & Trey Callaway

Directed by Nick Copus

Airs Wednesdays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

Children are the key to the future, so it makes complete sense for the Patriots to get every teen in the land through their boot camps and brainwash them into fighting for the United States. It’s both a form of population control and a way to bolster the ranks.

Charlie and the Monroes are back in the Willoughby area with Charlie’s new gang in tow. While taking down the Patriots is a major goal, there are more pressing concerns. Namely, the Nevilles coming for Bass’s head and the threat of the boot camp and he soldiers it may produce. The bulk of the story focuses on the latter, with Bass and Miles ensnaring a couple of would-be teen trackers trying to hunt them down.
