Lena Dunham Joins ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

American Horror Story” Season 7 is adding a new “Girl” to its cast.

Lena Dunham is joining the FX horror anthology, co-creator Ryan Murphy announced in a tweet on Wednesday evening.

“Thrilled that my talented friend Lena Dunham is joining the American Horror Story family,” he wrote. “Always wanted to work together, and now we r!”

Additional details about Dunham’s role have not yet been revealed. The title of “Ahs” Season 7, which Murphy previously revealed will be inspired by the 2016 presidential election, will be announced on Thursday.

Previously announced cast members include “Ahs” veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, as well as franchise newcomers Billie Lourd (who worked with Murphy on “Scream Queens”) and “Billy on the Street’s” Billy Eichner. Beyond that, however, Murphy and FX have unsurprisingly revealed little about the upcoming season, with Murphy most recently dropping a clue in the form of a nightmarish bee-filled photo on his Instagram.

Watch Conan's Goofy 'Wonder Woman' Spoof at Comic-Con

23 minutes ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Conan set up shop at Comic-Con this week, and the show celebrated on Wednesday by airing an amusing spoof of the summer blockbuster Wonder Woman. The skit plays as one long joke about Conan's lack of macho male attributes.

The preamble is dispensed with quickly: following the path of Wonder Woman's male star Chris Pine, Conan gets lost flying an antiquated biplane, crash-lands in the ocean and swims ashore on "Themyscira, the hidden island of the Amazons." The Amazon warriors are instantly puzzled by their guest's puny physique and blindingly pale skin. »

Samantha Bee scrutinized the people in charge of President Donald Trump's dubious Voter Integrity Commission and their long track records of race-baiting and voter suppression on Full Frontal Monday.

Heading up the Voter Integrity Commission is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, whom Bee noted spent his college years writing an anti-divestment thesis under the tutelage of a professor who also advised the white South African apartheid regime. »

Jennifer Lawrence threw up while watching the Broadway play 1984 — and its star Olivia Wilde says she's "honored."

It has caused multiple audience members to become sick since its opening last month, and upon attending Monday night's performance, Lawrence left her seat to vomit in the lobby, reports »

Box-Office Preview: Can 'Dunkirk' Battle Past $40M in U.S. Debut?

48 minutes ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

While Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is expected to win this weekend's box-office battle, the big question is whether the critically acclaimed World War II epic can clear $40 million in its U.S. landing.

War dramas have never been known for big openings, although Nolan — the mastermind behind the blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy — is a powerful brand unto himself.

Warner Bros., Nolan's home studio, is projecting a domestic debut in the $35 million-$40 million range. Most box-office observers believe Dunkirk will come in on the higher end, while some think it has a shot of doing more, thanks »

Meet the Most Famous Hollywood Writer You've Never Heard Of

48 minutes ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

When Michael Green first started out as a screenwriter, he read every script he could get his hands on. When he finished a screenplay, he'd toss it into one of two piles. There was a pile for scripts he thought were better than what he himself was writing and another for scripts he believed were worse. "I thought I could start to tell where I ranked as a writer," he recalls. "But back then, the 'better than me' stack was a lot higher than the 'worse than me' stack."

Twenty years later, there's a third stack — his own produced »

How an Actor's Rare Genetic Disorder Launched a Career Playing Scary Monsters

48 minutes ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In 2013, a strange and creepy screen test started making the rounds in Hollywood. It showed an extremely tall and very lean figure in a long black wig and white face mask crawling on the floor, contorting freakishly long limbs and fingers in ways human skeletons aren't supposed to bend. A lot of people thought it was a puppet. Others figured it was CGI. It turned out to be Javier Botet, a Spanish actor who has since become the most in-demand monster man since Boris Karloff stomped around the Universal lot with bolts sticking out of his neck.
