Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders Wants to Change Your Mind About Those Brothers

16 September 2017 2:50 PM, PDT

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, premiering Sept. 26 and starring Edie Falco, is NBC's stab at the true crime drama, but with the Dick Wolf (Law & Order, Chicago Fire) brand attached. But in tackling the famous Menendez brothers trial over eight hours of TV, Wolf and Co. are not actually looking to present a docu-style dramatization. They're taking a stance on the trial and that stance is that the brothers were wrongly convicted of the first-degree murder of their parents. Wolf told the 2017 TCA Summer press tour audience that this is the first time a show of his has "had a collective agenda," which is to bring to light just how mishandled this case was. "The research revealed things none of us knew, and that's one of the things that I think is most impactful about the eight hours," says Wolf. "I don't care what attitude you go in with, »

How I Met Your Mother and 30 Rock Are Leaving Netflix Because 2017 Is Total Trash

15 September 2017 8:50 PM, PDT

Because 2017 is intent on further stripping us of our sanity, it was recently announced that both How I Met Your Mother and 30 Rock are leaving Netflix. First Buffy and now these two? C'mon. Why you gotta be like this, Netflix? First on the chopping block is 30 Rock, a comedy produced by Universal Television, which will exit the streaming network by the end of September. If you've been putting off getting to know Tina Fey's Liz Lemon, now is the time to get your binge on. Fortunately, you likely have a little bit more time to watch How I Met Your Mother's nine seasons. According to Vulture, the 20th Century Fox TV–produced show will also be leaving Netflix this Fall, but the exact date is still Tbd (Netflix is remaining mum on the subject as of publication). The move for both comedies is probably due to the deal »

3 Places You May Have Seen Claire Foy, Besides The Crown

15 September 2017 5:55 PM, PDT

Claire Foy took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama this year, and she's up for an Emmy for the same role, prompting those who haven't yet watched The Crown to finally move it up in their Netflix queue. Foy may have just made it onto your radar, but she's about to be everywhere - not only is she costarring with Andrew Garfield in the upcoming Breathe, it as just announced that she'll be stepping into the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider's Web. Foy has been acting since 2008, when she appeared in the pilot of the UK series Being Human. Since then, she's mostly been in lauded British television shows and miniseries, including Little Dorrit and Upstairs Downstairs. In case you're not a connoisseur of fine British TV, you may at least know her from one of these projects that crossed over to American audiences. »

Could You Imagine Halloween Without Jamie Lee Curtis? It Almost Happened

15 September 2017 5:17 PM, PDT

Jamie Lee Curtis surprised everyone by announcing that she's returning to the Halloween franchise, which launched her career into superstardom, but did you know that she almost didn't get the part? Director John Carpenter originally wanted Anne Lockhart, the daughter of Lassie actress June Lockhart, to play the role of Laurie Strode. Debra Hill, a producer for the film, felt Curtis would have a greater value for the film's publicity because she is the daughter of Janet Leigh, who famously starred in the psychological horror film Psycho. Carpenter had never seen Curtis's acting chops, but later admitted he "was absolutely wrong" after her stellar performance in the movie, and we'd have to agree. Can you imagine anyone else besides Curtis playing the younger sibling of Michael Myers? We can't either. »

15 September 2017 3:20 PM, PDT

A post shared by Wells Adams (@wellsadams) on Feb 13, 2017 at 6:52pm Pst If you watched the latest season of Bachelor in Paradise, you absolutely found yourself rooting for Wells and Danielle M. to get together, but are they actually dating? First, some backstory: they both live in Nashville and knew each other before they appeared on the Bachelor shows. Years ago they went on a date, but nothing ever came of it. Cut to this Summer, when they shared one hell of a kiss on Bachelor in Paradise. Technically, Wells wasn't there to date - he took over Jorge's bartending duties - which made the kiss even better. Fans everywhere immediately started rooting for their relationship because . . . just Look: Image Source: ABC Like something straight out of a rom-com, the kiss came right as Danielle was leaving the show and, unfortunately, Bip didn't air anything about their relationship during the show's finale. »

10 Places You've Probably Seen John Carroll Lynch, Aside From American Horror Story

15 September 2017 3:10 PM, PDT

When we think of John Carroll Lynch, we immediately think of Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story. While the actor may have just gotten on your radar, he's actually been acting since 1993, when he first appeared in Grumpy Old Men as a moving man, though it wasn't until he played Norm Gunderson in Fargo that he garnered fame. If you need a little break from Twisty's killing spree, look back at some of Lynch's most notable roles. RelatedWant to Know Who's in the Cult on Ahs?

Ahs Fans Think They've Figured Out Who Lily Rabe Will Play in Cult

15 September 2017 3:02 PM, PDT

Image Source: FX American Horror Story has only aired a handful of episodes from season seven, Cult, but there are already a plethora of theories floating around: is Ivy secretly the show's biggest villain? Are Oz's real parents not who they seem? Is his unique name a hint about how the entire season is going to wrap up? Like we said - a plethora. One of the less involved theories to come out of Cult so far, though, is who Ahs vet Lily Rabe might be playing. Now that Emma Roberts has finally revealed the identity of her character (a not-so-nice newscaster named Serina Belinda), fans have started brainstorming about Rabe's upcoming appearance on the show. Like Lena Dunham, rumors are circulating that she'll only appear in one episode and will also be playing a real-life figure from the past. As Redditor sibshallward recently pointed out, the season will feature »

The Walking Dead: Cooper Andrews, aka Jerry, Is the Breakout Star the Show Needed

15 September 2017 3:01 PM, PDT

The Walking Dead is jam-packed with characters we've all come to love and root for, but season seven introduced a new character who immediately stole our hearts. Jerry, played by Cooper Andrews, lives in the Kingdom and is an advisor/bodyguard to King Ezekiel. He's also funny as hell and able to take out both walkers and bad guys with ease. He's basically the right-hand man we all would want on our side if the zombie apocalypse ever happened. His comedic one-liners are also a much-needed relief from all of the madness happening courtesy of Negan. In real life, Andrews was a huge fan of the show before he even got the part as Jerry. He also served as a boom operator on the show before joining the cast. Executive producer Scott M. Gimple told Andrews he specifically chose him for the role because "you have this smile that when you smile, »

11 Must-Read Book Series If You Love Game of Thrones

15 September 2017 2:45 PM, PDT

Even though it feels like season seven of Game of Thrones just started, the truth is the long Winter without the Starks, Lannisters, and Daenerys is upon us once again - but that doesn't mean there's no way for you to get your fix of political intrigue, dragons, and flawed characters struggling to survive in war-torn worlds. There are plenty of fantasy book series out there just waiting to fill the Game of Thrones void in your life. Of course, one of those series is A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, the books on which Game of Thrones is based. But you've already read those, right? Right?

2 New Characters Are Joining Game of Thrones - Here's What We Know So Far

15 September 2017 2:25 PM, PDT

I know what you're thinking: "Are you guys still talking about Game of Thrones?! Haven't we talked about this show enough?!" And listen, I get it. The fantasy epic that tortured our souls, warmed our hearts, and made us question everything we've ever known for seven weeks this Summer isn't returning for another two years - how can there possibly be anything left to discuss? Well, blame the show's casting directors, because we have two big nuggets of information to relay whether you want it or not (c'mon, you know you want it). According to popular Game of Thrones blog Watchers on the Wall (as well as Project Casting), HBO is currently on the hunt for two new characters for season eight. Although there's not a whole lot to go off of, the casting notices do hint at who these characters might be. The first role is for a "Northern »

Yeah, Miley Cyrus's Country Version of "Party in the U.S.A." Is Better Than the Original

15 September 2017 2:06 PM, PDT

Your favorite karaoke song just got a country makeover, y'all. Miley Cyrus performed for Radio 1's Live Lounge at her own Rainbowland Studios in Malibu, CA, recently, where she infused some of her biggest songs with some twang. Although she wasn't decked out in the country regalia she rocked while surprising commuters on the NYC subway in June, her countrified renditions of "Party in the U.S.A." and "See You Again" are truly stunning. I know this might be an unpopular opinion, but . . . they're better than the originals. *backs into bush* Ok, happy listening! »

It's Official: Rooney Mara Is Out as Lisbeth Salander and Claire Foy Is In

15 September 2017 2:01 PM, PDT

If you thought the American film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's addicting novels (known as the Millennium series) were long dead, think again. According to Deadline, The Crown's Claire Foy is the latest actress to take on the role of Lisbeth Salander, the sulky protagonist of the gripping mystery stories. But there's a catch: Foy is actually set to star in the film adaptation of The Girl in the Spider's Web, the fourth novel in the Millennium series that was written by David Lagercrantz rather than Larsson. If you're confused about the move, just know that this has pretty much nothing to do with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which hit theaters in 2011 (other than the recurring characters). Obviously, Rooney Mara is no longer our dark and twisty heroine, and additionally, visionary director David Fincher is not on board either. Instead, Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez has signed on. »

Everything We Know About the Girl in the Spider's Web

15 September 2017 1:50 PM, PDT

Image Source: Everett Collection Movies get rebooted at an alarming rate these days, because it seems that Hollywood just can't let a franchise die. (Also: because money.) David Fincher's 2011 The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was itself a successful reboot of the 2009 Swedish-language series starring Noomi Rapace (based on the Stieg Larsson novels), and now, the franchise is coming back again with a sequel but with an all-new cast, director, and story. You probably have a lot of questions about this new chapter, called The Girl in the Spider's Web, so we'll do our best to iron it all out. Which book is the next movie based on? Sony Pictures, the studio behind the 2011 film, is adapting The Girl in the Spider's Web into film. Swedish author Stieg Larsson wrote the original Millennium trilogy, comprised of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and »

Mother! Has a Lot of Hype, but Is It Also Scary? Read This to See If You Can Handle It

15 September 2017 12:41 PM, PDT

By now, you have either seen Darren Aronofsky's twisted allegory starring Jennifer Lawrence, Mother!, or you are debating whether to see it because you're afraid you can't handle it. From one scaredy-cat to another, I can tell you what you can expect if that's what's holding you back. Here's how much gore and scariness you can expect from Mother! Warning: light spoilers for Mother! are ahead. There's a Generally Creepy Atmosphere In the trailers, the score is so haunting that I was convinced I'd be stressed out during the movie. However, in the actual film, that score is absent, and the tension in the first third of the movie is relatively low. Instead, you're just getting to know "Mother" and "Him" (Javier Bardem).

Jamie Lee Curtis Is Returning For Another Halloween Reboot - We Are Not Worthy

15 September 2017 12:30 PM, PDT

Next year's Halloween is going to get kicked up a notch. On Friday, it was announced that Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising the iconic role of Laurie Strode in Halloween, another reboot of the beloved horror franchise due out on Oct. 19, 2018. It's an exciting reveal for one of the first-ever scream queens because truly nothing is scarier than watching her fend off her psychotic, murderous, William Shatner-mask-wearing younger brother with only a wire hanger in the 1978 original. Then again, doesn't Laurie get stabbed by her deranged sibling and thrown to her death in the franchise's eighth movie, Halloween: Resurrection? Apparently she and Michael Myers share more than just DNA - they can both evade death in extraordinary ways. The horror film sees Laurie facing down Michael in one final, bloody confrontation and boasts John Carpenter as an executive producer and creative consultant.

Shakira Is the True Definition of a Golden Goddess in Her "Perro Fiel" Music Video

15 September 2017 12:05 PM, PDT

Every time Shakira releases a music video, you know it's going to have two things: belly dancing and her in some seriously sexy outfits. Naturally, her latest one is no exception! The Colombian singer and philanthropist just released the music video for her song "Perro Fiel" - which translates to loyal dog - featuring Nicky Jam, and it's definitely one to watch. Within the first few seconds, you get a glimpse of Shakira looking like a golden statue with her entire body painted gold (except her face) and wearing barely any clothes. Nicky Jam is also in the video, but our eyes were immediately drawn to all of Shakira's outfit changes, to be honest (spoiler alert: at one point, she's even wearing a red wig!). »

Hold the Flip Phone, Jennifer Lawrence Once Auditioned For Gossip Girl?

15 September 2017 10:45 AM, PDT

Hey Upper East Siders, we have some information that might blow your mind: Jennifer Lawrence once auditioned for The CW's hit drama Gossip Girl. According to the show's creator Josh Schwartz, the Oscar-winning actress, who would have been 16 at the time, really wanted to play NYC's favorite It girl. "We did not realize this at the time, but Jennifer Lawrence really wanted to play Serena and auditioned," Schwartz told Vulture ahead of the show's upcoming 10th anniversary. "This story came to us secondhand, but we were told she definitely auditioned and was bummed to not get it." While it's hard to imagine anyone other than Blake Lively as the blond bombshell, we are definitely curious to know how Lawrence would have tackled the role. »

Tom Hanks Will Revive David S. Pumpkins This Halloween - Any Questions?

15 September 2017 9:55 AM, PDT

David S. Pumpkins is officially coming back to amuse and confuse Saturday Night Live viewers. In 2016, Tom Hanks hosted the show and unveiled the beguiling haunted house character. Who is David S. Pumpkins? While that's a question we haven't gotten an answer for yet, he's pretty much "just a guy in a pumpkin suit with two b-boy skeletons," as described by Kate McKinnon's character. Thankfully, it looks like more is on the way. A few months after popping up in a rap video parody on the show, Hanks teased the script for a future Saturday Night Live skit involving David S. Pumpkins. According to this script, the scene will begin with the viral character bringing pumpkins to life in a "very Sorcerer's Apprentice-type sequence." In his tweet, Hanks simply added, "Any questions?" Any questions? Hanx. pic.twitter.com/6rv6Cxx3DH - Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) September 14, 2017 The show returns on Sept. »
