As of this week, streaming video services like Netflix and Hulu are required to have closed captions the same way broadcast TV is required. That happened thanks partly to activism by Marlee Matlin.

Former One Tree Hill cutie Tyler Hilton has joined the cast of CBS’ summer drama Extant, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hilton will play a techie who is a “rock star” at work but socially awkward away from his office.
I hope Tyler Hilton’s wearing those cute specs on Extant.
