Fake California Earthquake Alert Sends Twitter Into a Tizzy

6 hours ago

An earthquake alert sent out by a staffer at Caltech had Southern Californians quaking in fear Wednesday night — but not because the ground was actually moving. The report of a 6.8 magnitude quake in the Pacific Ocean near Santa Barbara, sent around 4:51 p.m. Pt, shook Twitter into a panic, but it was actually referring to a quake that happened in the same area 92 years ago. The false alarm occurred when the staffer tried to correct the exact location of the Prohibition-era Santa Barbara earthquake in 1925, according to the Los Angeles Times.

7 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: Please don’t read on if you haven’t watched the Season 3 finale of “Fargo”) FX’s “Fargo,” like the movie from which it’s adapted, is all about inept people messing up each other’s lives with their dangerous, crime-ridden plans.

Generally in “Fargo,” though, the bad guys eventually get what’s coming to them, as do the people who stumbled into bad situations without knowing what they »

9 hours ago

(Warning: Spoilers ahead for Wednesday’s Season 3 finale of “Fargo”) “Fargo” wrapped up Season 3 with a highway showdown, an ill-fated trip to the fridge and ultimately, a head-scratching cliffhanger involving a clock on the wall. In Wednesday’s episode of the heralded FX drama series, Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) came incredibly close to enacting her revenge as she took out V.M. Varga’s (David Thewlis) men and then tracked down Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor) on a deserted road. Just as she seemed on the verge of taking his life as penance for killing Ray, fate intervened in the form of a highway patrol. »

When asked if she prefers binge-watching her favorite shows or taking them on a slower, once-a-week basis, Britton laughed, saying: “I feel like I’m completely out of it when it comes to TV.

10 hours ago

Since its premiere, “Black-ish” has been hailed for it’s ability to deftly handle important social issues within the restricting confines of a 30-minute broadcast sitcom, and that was once again on display in last year’s episode “Being Bow-racial.” The episode, which saw Tracee Ellis Ross’ character taking the lead from her husband, brought an important and nuanced discussion of colorism in the black community to ABC’s wider audience. “The ‘Being Bow-racial’ episode was really, really fun,” Ross said in an interview with TheWrap. “Being able to explore that part of my character … and getting to meet more of Bow’s family. »

Why Michael K Williams Went Through ‘9 Months of Hell’ for ‘The Night Of’ (Video)

10 hours ago

Michael Kenneth Williams has been involved in some of the greatest dramatic shows in television history, starting with his role as fearsome stick-up man Omar in David Simon’s seminal show “The Wire,” and continuing through “The Sopranos,” “Boardwalk Empire” and many more. And this year, Williams has an abundance of riches: He’s entered in the Emmy race for his performances in Dustin Lance Black’s miniseries “When We Rise” and the Sundance series “Hap and Leonard,” as well as for hosting and executive producing the Vice investigative show “Black Market With Michael K. Williams.” But it’s unlikely that any of those projects. »

Emmy Contender Constance Zimmer on ‘Destructive’ Fun of ‘UnREAL’ (Video)

10 hours ago

Constance Zimmer is not short on “firsts” when she’s portraying tough-as-nails reality producer Quinn King on Lifetime’s “UnREAL.” “Playing Quinn, I’m out of my comfort zone pretty much every day — everything I do, every line I deliver,” Zimmer told the latest issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. “The scene where I went into the control room and smashed the monitor and then cut my hand and then had a huge emotional moment for a character who is incredibly guarded? That was very uncomfortable for me as an actress, but super fun to do,” Zimmer said of her latest season on the Lifetime. »

‘Veep’ Stars Reid Scott and Sam Richardson Talk Learning to Masturbate, Feigning Homelessness (Exclusive Video)

11 hours ago

It’s no surprise that “Veep” stars Sam Richardson and Reid Scott had to do some things they weren’t proud of during Season 6. Richardson, who plays campaign aide Richard Splett on the HBO comedy, told TheWrap that it was a bit of a challenge to convincingly portray a character who was unfamiliar with self-pleasure. “For me, the hardest thing was to play a scene where I’m a grown man who doesn’t know how to masturbate,” Richardson said. “I had to dig deep on that one because, as of myself, I’ve done it for longer than I can remember. »

‘The Mist’ Showrunner Breathes Life Into Show’s Queer Character

11 hours ago

A standout character from the first episode of “The Mist” (the only episode provided to press before the season premiere) is Adrian, played by Russell Posner. In many ways he is the typical misfit high schooler. He wears eyeliner, dresses in all black, and gets bullied as soon as he walks into a party filled with jocks. What is surprising though is his confidence. His story doesn’t revolve around coming out or growing into himself, which is typical of Lgbtq+ characters. He provides support to his friend Alex and talks like he’s been spending too much time on the internet, »

12 hours ago

Detroiters” star Sam Richardson says the most difficult thing he’s done on the Comedy Central series was also the most fun — he rode around downtown Detroit on a motorcycle with co-star Tim Robinson clinging to his waist. “It would get so hot because we were in these motorcycle suits. The heavy jacket and helmet,” Richardson told TheWrap. The actor remembers thinking: “Please don’t pee on me. ‘Cause like it’ll start out warm but then it’ll get cold” — he snaps — “like that.” He wasn’t technically riding the motorcycle — it was on a rig, set up for shooting around town. »

12 hours ago

As Hollywood recoils from the shock of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s abrupt firing from their anticipated “Star Wars” spinoff on the young Han Solo, how will the filmmakers and the powerful Disney machine negotiate the legal fallout?
