Orange Is the New Black’s Danielle Brooks on Lies, Laughing, and Taystee-Poussey Shippers

28 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You’ve watched all of Orange Is the New Black’s second season, yes? Wonderful. Then you may proceed. The rest of you, please note that this post contains many spoilers about the show.For most of Orange Is the New Black’s second season, Taystee was lost to the mind-powers of Vee, the abusive drug-dealer mother figure who’d given Litchfield’s most delightful inmate a family in exchange for a life of crime. To our horror, Taystee broke up with Bff Poussey and began dealing again (including slipping heroine to recovering addict Nicky) before breaking free of Vee’s spell. She seems to be back on the up-and-up now, but we’re still reeling from that rough patch. Vulture talked to Juilliard grad Danielle Brooks, who’s already in the middle of shooting next season, about Taystee’s journey thus far, and why she’s so relieved Taystee and Poussey got back together. »

She saw Teresa Giudice's table flip from Real Housewives of New Jersey and Shereè Whitfield's wig snatch from Real Housewives of Atlanta and upped the ante with her prosthetic limb. So, why did she rip her leg off and throw it down on the table and ultimately at Heather Thomson? Aviva explains in the video above that she had heard the ladies were questioning her truthfulness and the status of her trip-preventing asthma.

Comic-Con is upon us, filling many attendees with equal measures of delight and dread. The Con (which gets an entire chapter in my book "The $11 Billion Year") has evolved from a comics convention to a sprawling monster that takes over downtown San Diego and its convention center on one congested July weekend. Details are arriving on what movies the studios will showcase at the Con,which launches Thursday July 24 and runs through Saturday July 27. Not all of the panels will be in Show H--many are traveling off-site to play to press directly, away from the fan hordes. (More and more, television is taking over the entertainment side of the Con, as events like HBO's "Game of Thrones" and AMC's "Walking Dead" panels gobble up attention.)  Warner Bros. is presenting at least four titles on Saturday: "Mad Max: Fury Road," "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Into the Storm. »

Dear Hollywood: Stop Using Frank Miller’s Batman Stories As Source Material

43 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the mid-1980s, writer/artist Frank Miller crafted two of the most influential Batman stories ever told: The Dark Knight Returns and Batman: Year One. It's not hard to see why they've had such a potent legacy. Even today, three decades after they were published, they remain thrilling and insightful. But I swear to God, if one more filmmaker uses them as a source text for a Batman movie, I'm going to smash my face into a concrete wall. Today is a great day to reassess Miller's twin graphic novels' influence on the multibillion-dollar Batman movie industry, because today is Batman Day. Batman Day is, of course, an entirely made-up holiday that DC Entertainment declared to celebrate its ever-lucrative Caped Crusader's 75 years of publication history (as well as move product and build buzz in advance of this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con). Take a look at the initial announcement of »

"You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry," she adds, "but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying." That said, Lana is the first to admit she likes "a physical love," saying, "I like a hands-on love. [Pauses] How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a »
