Ok, so maybe there's been some buzz about True Detective's second season not quite living up to the first, but there are some legitimate reasons for you to tune in - all of which (spoiler alert) died with the most recent episode. The show stars Taylor Kitsch, the (very) sexy star who made you fall in love with Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights. We're highlighting 10 important things we're going to miss now that Kitsch's character has perished. Keep reading, then check out more of Taylor's sexy stare plus what you may not have noticed about the show's theme song. »
The penultimate episode of the second season of "True Detective" is in the bag and only one, 90-minute episode remains to sort through the carnage. The episode picks up immediately following "Church in Ruins" as Ray (Colin Farrell), Ani (Rachel McAdams) and Paul (Taylor Kitsch) must sort through the information they've gained and figure out where it takes them next. Meanwhile, Frank (Vince Vaughn) has some housecleaning to do while Paul is dealing with a bit of blackmail. The details are coming together and it's now a question of how much you've enjoyed the journey and are looking to finding out how it will all end. Side Note: During this episode I reference the fact the lyrics to the opening theme song have been changing throughout the season. For more on that click here.

“When I ran out of the woods.”
It starts with Ray, at a loss as to how to help Ani come down from Mdma, offering to roll her a joint in a seedy motel room while Paul, expression wooden, gets blackmailed via anonymous text. These people, burnouts and fuckups that they are, weren’t prepared for a win. They certainly weren’t prepared for a win without State District Attorney Davis, left murdered in her car in the sun-scorched wasteland of industrial California, to back them up. Watching them tread and retread the same conversations with their families has cut season 2 off at the knees time and time again, above and beyond whatever objections one might have to a story where the only apparent acceptable standard for sexual behavior is two fully-clothed and standing cishet adults pumping back and forth like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, but with the strings »

So now it's kind of awkward. Last week, TheWrap had a story saying Channing Tatum may not play superhero "Gambit" because his deal was potentially falling apart. They noted that a decision would have to be made quickly, since "Gambit" already had a release date, etc. It prompted the Taylor Kitsch fans who loved him in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to jump in and say he should just get the role back. But never mind, because now it's official that Channing is going to be Gambit, and it sounds like he was never not going to be Gambit, he just had to finish his negotiations.
Here are some big picture details from The Hollywood Reporter:
One thing that needed figuring out was the extent of Tatum's involvement in the X-Men universe. Fox sees Tatum's Gambit, a mutant who harnesses kinetic energy, as one of the anchor characters of the X-universe, akin to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, »

Remember just last week when word broke that Channing Tatum wasn’t going to playing Gambit in the X-Men stand-alone movie? Well it looks like that was a load of blown-up hearsay – the actor has just officially signed on to the project. The speculation-haters that have emerged in recent days on the internet are going to have a field day.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, all of those departure rumours come from the complex negotiations involved on the property. You see, while Gambit is a hero who’s had a minimal impact on the X-Men films thus far (his only appearance was a forgettable turn by Taylor Kitsch in Origins: Wolverine), the future hinges on the kinetic abusing mutant. Similar to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, he’s going to be something of a through-line to all the varied adventures – Logan is leaving the X-Men universe after his »

Well, we can't say we saw that coming. We also can't say we didn't see it coming. To be honest, we haven't known what to think or see or feel about this show all season, but we must admit we did feel a twinge of sadness tonight for Paul "Tim Riggins" Woodrugh, who lay dead on the ground at the end of this, the penultimate episode of the messy, confusing, yet mildly intriguing second season of True Detective. Paul's (Taylor Kitsch) story became particularly sad tonight, as if it weren't already sad enough. He's gay and clearly ashamed of it, his girlfriend is pregnant, and he's embroiled in an especially messy murder case for which he just committed theft from some »
The logline for this week's episode of "True Detective" filled me with hope: Ray (Colin Farrell), Ani (Rachel McAdams) and Paul (Taylor Kitsch) take precautionary measures to elude detection and untangle a dark mystery. Frank (Vince Vaughn) deals with the fallout of his betrayal. Would my optimism be rewardedc The short answer is "yes". The long answer is "it's complicated". "Black Maps and Motel Rooms" snaps a lot of the frustratingly disparate elements of the season together. Many of the side detours and shoehorned characterizations coalesce in an episode that provides answers, even if some are purposely vague. For the first time all season. at least one of the characters has to deal with the mental fallout of their actions. Jumping forward 66 days prevented this type of exploration after the mid-season shootout, but Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) has no choice but to face up to the life she took at the »

A review of tonight's "True Detective" coming up just as soon as I manage an Applebee's... "After all, don't fight what you can't change." -Frank Among the many glaring problems of this season, one of the biggest has been the convoluted mystery at the center of it. In crafting a plot involving so many disparate characters, crimes, agendas and even eras, Nic Pizzolatto hasn't lacked for ambition this year, but the story has lacked any obvious reason for the audience to care about any of it. The show's struggle with characterization ties into this — if Frank had been a more successful character, for instance, I might have been curious about who caused him to lose his money and power, but as Vince Vaughn struggled to find his voice, it didn't feel worth the mental effort — but like Ray Velcoro, I spent a lot of the season's early chapters struggling to »

It's official! Channing Tatum is Gambit! Despite reports that the actor was wanting to back out of the project, THR confirms that Channing Tatum has officially closed his deal, making him part of 20th Century Fox's Marvel family. The film will open in theaters October 2016.
Most expected that the actor would eventually sign his deal. And fans were shocked to hear that he wanted out. The project seemed to be falling apart as sources close to the production suggested that Fox and Channing Tatum couldn't come to terms on the contract. While that is now proven untrue, it is said that the studio and the actor did hit a sensitive spot in negotiations. That sensitive spot was not disclosed to the public.
Taylor Kitsch made a handsome appearance in La on Thursday, stepping out for an event at Bing Theater at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The event marked a collaboration between Film Independent at Lacma and Tiff, highlighting the work of Canadian filmmakers. Taylor, who's Canadian himself, hit the stage during his night out, showing off his signature grin as he spoke. It marked one of his first public appearances since he was linked to Rachel McAdams, his True Detective costar. Taylor and Rachel's rumored romance sparked all kinds of excitement for fans, and we couldn't help but appreciate the idea of Tim Riggins and Regina George being together. Keep reading for the best pictures from Taylor Kitsch's night out, then see Rachel's sweet reaction to those dating rumors plus why True Detective is worth watching this season. »
Things simply clicked between the two and it clearly worked in his favor, as Kitsch now plays highway patrolman Paul Woodrugh on the show. Kitsch spoke with Toronto International Film Festival artistic director Cameron Bailey Thursday night as part of a Canada’s Top Ten Films event through Film Independent at Lacma. They covered his entire body of work, from “Friday Night Lights” to his role as a South African photographer in “The Bang Bang Club.”
Kitsch said he was sold on joining “True Detective” from early on.
“I love season one and I think that tone and everything I can contribute to and be a part of and I can do some good work on that,” Kitsch said he told his representation when they told him they were campaigning »

Channing Tatum has been talking about wanting to play the X-Men character Gambit for years. Recently he got his chance to do just that in a movie that will be directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). The Wrap is now reporting that even though the film has been getting ready to start filming to be ready for an October 7th, 2016 release, Tatum is now reconsidering being part o the project. While it's not clear what exactly is happening, it's starting to look like Wyatt and 20th Century Fox may have to find a replacement. Fans are already suggesting Taylor Kitsch, who played the superhero in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." »
Could Gambit be in troublec It appears so, as The Wrap reports Channing Tatum is threatening to walk away from the upcoming superhero film, in which he is scheduled to star and produce, just weeks before filming begins. The report doesn't say anything about how this might affect the future of the film. Obviously, Fox has put a lot of money and effort into the film so far, and it would be a huge loss to write it off completely. However, without Tatum, do you even attempt this filmc Gambit was already a big gamble, due to the fact the character is relatively unknown to the general public outside of Taylor Kitsch's brief appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It was Tatum's enthusiasm for the role, and his star power, that even made this film possible. It's clear that if Tatum does depart the film, Fox would need to reevaluate the situation. »

For the longest time Channing Tatum has been attached to Gambit, the X-Men spin-off about the mutant card spinner, willing it through a lengthy pre-production period. Well, that’s all looking to be for naught now as The Wrap are reporting that Tatum is planning to leave the project. How far along this situation is isn’t clear, but the studio is reported as saying “something is up”.
I really like Tatum, and have ever since 21 Jump Street showed he was a much smarter performer than his traditional macho looks suggested, so to see him leave what has become a passion project akin to Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool is a real shame.

Channing Tatum looked so excited at San Diego Comic-Con as he joined the Marvel team to promote his upcoming role in "Gambit." But now, just a month after the happy group photo below, rumors are swirling that Channing is leaving the movie:

According to TheWrap, quoting "an individual with knowledge of the situation," Channing's "Gambit" deal is in jeopardy of collapsing and he's planning to exit the comic book movie. This source said Channing's reps are still in active discussions with 20th Century Fox, but it's supposedly known that "something is up."
"Gambit" already has a release date of October 7, 2016, so if they lose Channing they either have to recast quickly or just take it off the schedule. Some fans think Taylor Kitsch should just come back as Gambit, »

While nothing is official yet, The Wrap reports that the actor’s deal to star as the title character is certainly in “jeopardy,” although Fox is in the middle of negotiations to keep Tatum from leaving. The site even suggests that director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will begin looking for actors to replace him shortly.
A casting call for the film was leaked online last Saturday, and it seemed that Gambit was moving along nicely, but there’s no denying that Tatum’s probable departure will be a major setback. Filming was supposed to start in October, and it still may, depending on how quickly Fox recovers.
Tatum was also set to produce the project with his partner Reid Carolin, »

According to The Wrap, the actor's deal with 20th Century Fox "is in jeopardy of falling apart".
Speaking to Digital Spy recently, Tatum said he had been working on his accent as the card-throwing Cajun.
It's also not clear what the actor's departure would mean for his producing partner Reid Carolin.
Tatum appeared with the entire X-Men cast as recently as two weekends ago at Fox's Comic-Con panel in San Diego.

It is thought that Tatum's desire to move into directing soon is playing a part in his potential Gambit exit.
Casting is currently under way on the comic book movie, with Spectre's Léa Seydoux said to be testing for the female lead. The blockbuster is due to go into production this October with a hefty $154 million budget. »
It may already be almost August, but there is still plenty of time to find a Summer fling. And since celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine, Drake, and Jamie Foxx currently have no real-life leading ladies, Hollywood might be the perfect place to look. But while most people place unmarried celebrities who are still in relationships in the singles category, we took things a step further. What good is it to stare at a taken man all day when you know his heart can never be yours? None. Keep reading to see the stars who you can realistically end up with this Summer, then take a minute to mourn the loss of single Taylor Kitsch (darn you, Rachel McAdams). »

Nate and Chuck are still BFFs! Former "Gossip Girl" stars Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick were spotted in West Hollywood on Saturday night, as Chace celebrated his 30th birthday with a dinner and roast at The London Hotel. The event -- which was presented by Freixenet Spanish Cava and River Virtual Reality -- reunited the on and off-screen buddies for what we're told was a night of "food, cocktails, laughter and dancing." Westwick, brother-in-law Tony Romo and good friend Ashley Fink all roasted the actor during the dinner, all cracking jokes about the birthday boy. Other celeb attendees at the bash included Jc Chasez, "Orange Is the New Black" star Matt McGorry, fellow "Gg" alum Jessica Szohr, Zelda Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Kevin Zegers, Lucas Grabeel and "Gossip Girl" creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. A video message was also shown during the evening, with messages sent in from Taylor Kitsch »
