Watch Jodie Foster, 50 Cent, and more audition for Young Han Solo on 'Conan'
29 minutes ago
Over 3,000 people auditioned for Young Han Solo before the role went to Alden Ehrenreich and, over the weekend, Conan imagined how the failed auditions went. In this new clip, we see everyone from Melissa McCarthy to Adam Sandler to 50 Cent all audition for the coveted Star Wars role. The auditions go a bit off the rails — Bill Hader does perfect impressions of other characters; McCarthy confuses the movie with Harry Potter — but they're all as funny as expected, especially when even bigger names like Jodie Foster and Adam Sandler show up. Sure, none of these celebrities got the part but we'd watch any of them play Young Han Solo in an instant. »

Mahershala Ali explains why Cottonmouth is not a true villain in Marvel's 'Luke Cage'
1 hour ago
After three seasons and two separate TV shows centered in Hell’s Kitchen, Marvel and Netflix are expanding their street-level hero universe. This September, Luke Cage will take us inside the world of Harlem, including the complex economic ecosystem that includes men like Cornell Cottonmouth (Mahershala Ali). Much like Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) before him, Cottonmouth doesn’t see himself as a villain. Every neighborhood has a hierarchy, and Cottonmouth is at the top of his. If his business ventures involve the illegal drug trade, that’s just the cost of being pragmatic in this day and age. HitFix Harpy caught up with Ali at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about his role within the Luke Cage universe. It sounds like the show is staying true to the idea that everyone is the hero of their own story. Check it out in the video above (and below)! Luke Cage arrives »

'Preacher' goes to Hell, with a hell of a 'Breaking Bad' homage along the way

A review of tonight's Preacher coming up just as soon as I'm an architect in Hell... "What do you have to be sorry for?" -Cassidy "Plenty." -Jesse Late in "Finish the Song," we begin seeing the start of the Cowboy's story all over again, and as the sequence moved from beat to beat through his trip to Ratwater and failure to save his wife and daughter, I began wondering if there was some new perspective on it that we were about to see, or if the show for some reason didn't trust its viewers to remember notable story points that happened a few episodes (or, in the case of the massacre that gives the episode its title, earlier in the hour). But then the sequence started over again, and again, and again, going faster for our sake, but clearly not for the Cowboy's, the point became clear, even before DeBlanc »

Review: 'The Night Of' introduces a fan favorite from 'The Wire'
12 hours ago
A review of tonight's The Night Of coming up just as soon as I can't think of any last-minute advice... "There's a whole separate judicial system in here, and you just been judged and juried." -Freddy At this stage of the story, The Night Of has essentially become two separate, but equally important, shows: a legal drama about the cops and lawyers working on opposite sides of Naz's prosecution, and a prison drama about Naz adjusting to his new life in jail at Rikers Island. But even as John Turturro and Riz Ahmed are playing the lead in their own mini-drama, the two halves are linked by the fact that Stone — like so many other characters this week — is fighting to protect Naz. Naz is wildly unprepared for incarceration, but he appears to have a guardian angel in Freddy, a disgraced former boxing champ played by the show's latest Ghost »
