Oprah Winfrey to Play Brothel-Running Grandmother in Richard Pryor Biopic

27 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT

Oprah Winfrey isn’t an actress not used to getting down and dirty for a role. She became almost unrecognizable as Sofia in “The Color Purple” and Sethe in “Beloved.” Her most recent role in “Lee DanielsThe Butler,” Gloria Gaines, was one that dealt with addictions and a near-affair. So, it shouldn’t be surprising that Winfrey would want to push herself even more when it comes to her acting career. It’s recently been released by Et that Winfrey has landed the role of Richard Pryor’s grandmother, Marie Carter. Carter wasn’t an ordinary grandmother; she was a brothel owner who raised Richard after his mother abandoned him when he was ten  [ Read More ]

Damien, An Upcoming Series Based on The Omen, Coming to Lifetime

26 August 2014 1:03 PM, PDT

Lifetime and horror aren’t really synonymous with each other–unless you count the many “abused woman on the run” films the channel used to show. Even still, the network has been known as “television for women,” with their programming gearing towards light romances. However, women love horror too, and since Lifetime has been expanding their portfolio in many different ways, including with unauthorized and/or scandalous biopics, such as “Liz and Dick” and “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story,” the network probably decided it was time to branch out into other areas. Hence their decision to revisit “The Omen.” Lifetime has ordered six episodes of “Damien,” a sequel-of-sorts to “The Omen.”  [ Read More ]

With Musion’s hologram technology, The Gorillaz were not only able to sing in front of a roaring audience at the MTV Europe Music Awards, but they were able play instruments (also holographic) and  [ Read More ]
