Recap of 'Pretty Little Liars' Season 6 Episode 8: A's Right Hand Man Revealed?

9 hours ago

You know how Aria Montgomery's secretly a genius photographer who spends all day snapping pictures of dolls and whatnot? Well, this week on "Pretty Little Liars," the art world was like "Only Aria Can Save Us!" and she got herself a gallery exhibition. Unfortunately, A thought this would be a great time to be a total photography buzz kill and ruined the entire event.

Other things that happened this week include a new reveal about A's right hand man, and some Ezria flirting that will have shippers shaking and crying. Also of note, Toby Cavanaugh was absent -- presumably due to the fact that he recently binge-ate a bunch of pot gummy bears and is still high.

Everyone Panic, Senior Prom Might Be Cancelled

Last week, the liars got themselves held up at gun point by the Rosewood Pd thanks to their terrible decision to go after Charles Dilaurentis, and »

Brittany Snow Will Return for 'Pitch Perfect 3,' Too

12 hours ago

Joining her fellow leading ladies Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, actress Brittany Snow is also set to return for "Pitch Perfect 3."

That's the word from Variety, which reports that Snow is currently closing a deal to reprise her role as Chloe, one of the original Barden Bellas. Kendrick and Wilson made their involvement in the threequel official back in June.

While it's unclear what the focus of "Pitch Perfect 3" will be, since Kendrick, Wilson, and Snow were all set to graduate at the end of "Pitch Perfect 2," that sequel's success made the greenlighting of "PP3" a no-brainer for studio Universal. "PP2" made a whopping $69 million on its opening weekend, and has gone on to gross more than $281 million worldwide since its release earlier this year.

As of right now, original "Pitch Perfect" writer Kay Cannon is on board to pen the screenplay. No director has been announced yet, »

'Bachelorette' Host Chris Harrison Hates Lifetime's 'UnREAL'

13 hours ago

If you thought last night's finale of "The Bachelorette" was dramatic, wait until you hear what host Chris Harrison had to say about Lifetime's "Bachelor"-skewering series "UnREAL."

In an interview with Variety, Harrison didn't mince words when asked for his thoughts on the drama, which revolves around the behind-the-scenes action on a fictional dating reality show that resembles "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette." Despite the show's critical acclaim, Harrison isn't a fan.

"Really, the main difference that I've seen is that people watch 'The Bachelor,'" Harrison told the trade during an interview at "The Bachelorette: Men Tell All" taping, which took place earlier this month. "It's complete fiction. As much as they would love to jump on our coattails - they were begging for us to talk about it and for people to write about it - at the end of the day, no one is watching. »

TCA: Chelsea Handler Dishes on Netflix Show, Documentaries

13 hours ago

Chelsea Handler was typically candid during her appearance at Netflix's presentation during the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Tuesday, dishing about her new series (which isn't a nightly talk show, Fyi) and the four documentaries that she's making for the streaming service.

Handler said she was drawn to make the docs -- titled "Chelsea Does Marriage," "Chelsea Does Racism," "Chelsea Does Silicon Valley," and "Chelsea Does Drugs" -- because "I had to get my brain working again." That was most likely a dig at E!, her former network and the home of her show "Chelsea Lately," though the comedienne declined to give any direct comment about the channel. (She apparently got her fill of trash-talking the network last year.)

As for the documentaries themselves, Handler said each would be feature-length, and the comedienne is executive producing them alongside some pretty impressive talent, including Oscar winner Morgan Neville ("20 Feet »

TCA: What We Know About 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Season 2

14 hours ago

The cast and creators of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" took part in Netflix's Television Critics Association press tour stop on Tuesday, and dropped some details about the beloved show's upcoming second season.

"Kimmy" was famously saved by Netflix after NBC decided to pass on the project, but not before filming its entire 13-episode first season. Thanks to network mandates, the show was pretty PG, and that's not going to change much for season two, either.

"I don't think you'll hear profanity or see nudity, but it gives us a license to play with time and structure without worrying about potentially offending an advertiser," co-creator Tina Fey explained of the differences between making the show for a traditional network versus for a streaming service like Netflix. That also means that future episodes of "Kimmy" will likely be longer than the standard 21 minutes and 15 seconds of airtime that network sitcoms get, though no installments will run past 30 minutes. »

6 Reasons You Should Be Watching 'Black-ish' Right Now

15 hours ago

I've been waiting and debating for oh-so-long for a comedy show that is actually funny; and when I say funny I mean leg-slapping, foot-stomping, my-head-is-hurting funny! Well, to my surprise, ABC has delivered a new side-splitting comedy called "Black-ish," about a successful, black family man who struggles to find some cultural identity while raising his family in a predominately white, upper-middle class neighborhood. It stars Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, and newcomers Yara Shahidi, Marcus Scribner, and others. Here are six reasons why you should watch:

1. Anthony Anderson Is Executive Producer

Anthony Anderson was born in Compton and is the current host of Food Network's "Eating America," and formerly a member of NBC's Emmy Award-winning drama "Law & Order." Anderson played Detective Kevin Bernard opposite Jeremy Sisto's Detective Cyrus Lupo. He's also appeared in more than 20 films, including the comedy blockbuster "Barbershop." Now, he's starring in and executive producing "Black-ish, »

Tommy Lee Jones Joins the New 'Bourne' Sequel

15 hours ago

Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones has joined the upcoming "Bourne" sequel, according to a new report.

Variety writes that Jones is set to play a high-ranking CIA officer in the flick, which will reunite titular star Matt Damon with the hit action franchise. Damon last appeared in "The Bourne Ultimatum" in 2007, then turned the franchise over to Jeremy Renner in 2012 reboot "The Bourne Legacy."

Jones has plenty of experience in the action and thriller genres (his Academy Award-winning role in "The Fugitive" is just one of many shining examples), so he should fit in nicely with the "Bourne" crew, which also includes the returning Julia Stiles (like Damon, she starred in the first three flicks) and Alicia Vikander. Paul Greengrass, who helmed "The Bourne Supremacy" and "Ultimatum," is also on board for the new flick.

Variety reports that production on the new sequel -- which is still untitled -- is expected to begin this summer. »

'Waterworld': 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Kevin Costner's Epic

16 hours ago

It's been two decades, and still, the waves from the tsunami that was "Waterworld" have not receded.

Released 20 years ago this week (on July 28, 1995), the post-apocalyptic epic about the survivors of a drowned Earth became known as one of the most bloated flops of all time. That reputation wasn't really fair (the movie eventually broke even), but it was the then-most expensive movie ever made.

For a year before the film's release, stories leaked out about the waterlogged production's near-disastrous setbacks and its ego clashes between star Kevin Costner and his hand-picked director, Kevin Reynolds. Punsters were calling the movie "Fishtar" and "Kevin's Gate." By the time "Waterworld" finally came out, its underwhelming reception was a self-fulfilling prophecy. Costner's career as a bankable leading man has never really recovered.

In honor of the film turning 20 years old today, here are 20 facts you may not know about "Waterworld."

Seth Rogen Wrecks Christmas in 'The Night Before' Red Band Trailer

17 hours ago

Just when you thought you'd gotten Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" out of your head comes the red band trailer for "The Night Before," which uses the song to soundtrack all the mayhem that meets Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie on the titular evening before Christmas.

It's a fitting juxtaposition, since Rogen in particular comes in like a wrecking ball and basically destroys the holiday, thanks to a combination of drugs, booze, and an epic party that he and his buddies are desperate to attend. "The Night Before" follows lifelong friends Ethan (Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Rogen), and Chris (Mackie), who have enjoyed an annual night of debauchery for years, but are ending the tradition because everyone is growing up -- for the most part, anyway.

They decide to have one last hurrah, and naturally, things don't exactly go according to plan, mostly thanks to Isaac experiencing an insanely bad trip. »

Diane Keaton Cast as Nun in HBO's 'Young Pope'

19 hours ago

Diane Keaton has found Jesus - in HBO's upcoming "The Young Pope."

The cable network announced that the Oscar-winning actress is joining the cast of the drama as Sister Mary, an American nun living in the Vatican City. She'll star opposite Jude Law, who plays Pius Xiii, born Lenny Belardo, who is the first American to be elected pope and who becomes the most conservative leader the Catholic Church has ever seen.

Sister Mary raised Lenny, helped him get elected, and continues to have power over him. Pius Xiii is also described as "a man of great power who's stubbornly resistant to the Vatican courtiers, unconcerned with the implications for his authority."

This marks Keaton's first-ever series regular television role. Creator and Oscar winner Paolo Sorrentino ("Great Beauty") will direct all eight episodes of "The Young Pope," which begins filming soon.

You Need to Go to This 'Breaking Bad'-Themed Coffee Shop in Istanbul

If you think you're a big fan of "Breaking Bad," you've got nothing on the people who work at Walter's Coffee Roastery in Istanbul. They've themed their coffee shop after the acclaimed AMC drama down to the last detail.

They roast their beans in a lab reminiscent of the one that Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) worked in. They wear bright yellow suits just like the duo did. They even have "blue meth" cupcakes!

Rachel McAdams in Talks to Star in 'Doctor Strange'

20 hours ago

If Benedict Cumberbatch is an unlikely, but awesome, choice to star in a Marvel comic book movie, then Rachel McAdams might be the perfect foil.

The actress is in early talks to join Cumberbatch in "Doctor Strange," as she revealed in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

"It's still super-early days, and I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all," she said, adding that she's not a "comic book snob."

Her quotes are part of an article about her somewhat-unconventional movie career. After major hits like "The Notebook" and "Mean Girls," McAdams was anointed by some as Hollywood's next Julia Roberts. Instead, she's balanced big studio movies like "Sherlock Holmes" with Woody Allen movies ("Midnight in Paris") and small indies ("About Time"). Now, she's currently starring in HBO's "True Detective."

If she does jump on board "Doctor Strange," due out in November 2016, the »

Best of Late Night TV: Tom Cruise's Amazing Lip Sync Battle, 'The Bachelorette' Snapchat Explained

28 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Tom Cruise remains one of the world's greatest entertainers, and he proved it Monday night on "The Tonight Show." He and Jimmy Fallon wowed the crowd with two amazing rounds of "Lip Sync Battle," starting with Tom almost rivaling queen Emma Stone (that battle would be close) with The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" and a duet with himself in Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Jimmy brought his A-game too, of course, and they ended with a two-person duet of "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" -- a nice nod to "Top Gun" -- which was performed as a serenade to an embarrassed/thrilled woman in the audience. »

The 25 Best 'SNL' Impressions Ever

27 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT

Celebrity impersonations are undeniably one of the staples of "Saturday Night Live." Week after week for 40 seasons, hosts and cast members alike have been portraying either the buzziest stars of the moment or some random famous person they happen to have a knack for copying. There have been hits and misses, but when the parodies are good, they become some of the most memorable sketches in history. We salute "SNL" for giving us master mimics like Dana Carvey, Jimmy Fallon, and Maya Rudolph and more throughout the years. Here's a look at 25 cast members and their best impressions ever.

The 18 Most Insane Stunts in Movie History, Ranked

27 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT

As an actor who likes to perform his own stunts, Tom Cruise tends to set the bar high. Literally.

Having scaled the world's tallest building in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" four years ago, the 53-year-old figured the only way to top that was to hang from the side of a flying plane in the new "Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation," opening July 31.

Certainly, there's something thrilling -- and probably a little sick -- about watching a person risk his or her life just to entertain us. Cruise has clearly gone above and beyond the call of duty for moviegoers many times, but he's also part of a movie tradition going back a century, of film professionals doing absolutely insane stunts just to wow us for a few moments. In honor of "Rogue Nation," here are 18 of the most astonishing stunts ever filmed.

Richard Linklater May Join Jennifer Lawrence for 'The Rosie Project'

27 July 2015 10:15 AM, PDT

One of Jennifer Lawrence's next films may have set its sights on an Oscar-nominated director.

According to Deadline, "Boyhood"'s Richard Linklater is the top choice to helm "The Rosie Project," in which Lawrence plays the titular object of the protagonist's affections. Linklater would replace previous "Rosie" helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who left the flick after striking a deal to make the recently-announced Han Solo-centric "Star Wars" prequel.

"Rosie," based on the novel by Graeme Simsion, focuses on an eccentric genetics professor who creates a scientific survey to make up for his lack of social skills and find the perfect love match. He then meets Rosie (Lawrence), who doesn't meet any of his qualifications, but bewitches him nonetheless.

Fresh off the success of "Boyhood," Linklater has been busy lately, working on a comedy about baseball players that's been described as a spiritual successor to his early classic, »

Josh Duhamel Books Role on Hulu's '11/22/63'

27 July 2015 9:45 AM, PDT

The upcoming Hulu miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's "11/22/63" has added yet another big name to its already-sprawling cast, with actor Josh Duhamel joining the ensemble.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Duhamel will have a regular role on the series, which stars James Franco as English teacher Jake Epping, who travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on the titular date. According to THR, Duhamel's character is an antagonist for Epping:

Duhamel will play Frank Dunning, the father of Jake's student Harry Dunning (played by youngster Jack Fulton and Leon Rippy), in 1960s Kentucky. Frank is the rakish town butcher, a ladies' man with an effortless smile that everyone welcomes -- except Jake, the only man who knows the full violence of which Frank is capable.

The rest of the impressive cast includes Daniel Webber (who's playing assassin Lee Harvey Oswald), Chris Cooper, Cherry Jones, »

Ed Sheeran Joins 'The Bastard Executioner' in Recurring Role

27 July 2015 9:15 AM, PDT

Singer Ed Sheeran is set to give acting a try in a recurring role on upcoming FX series "The Bastard Executioner."

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, writing that Sheeran will play Sir Cormac, described by the trade as "an ambitious and deadly protégé of a high-ranking church elder." As THR notes, this will be the second collaboration between Sheeran and "Executioner" creator Kurt Sutter; Sheeran previously contributed a bluesy cover of the Foy Vance song "Make It Rain" to "Sons of Anarchy"'s final season, after the British songwriter revealed that he was a big fan of Sutter's biker drama.

"Bastard Executioner" will keep up Sutter's penchant for high-stakes drama, only this time, the action is set in the 1300s. The show is described by THR as "a blood-soaked medieval epic that tells the story of a 14th century warrior whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger »
