‘Homeland’ Review: Carrie’s Secret New Life Is Revealed as ‘The Man in the Basement’ Starts to Make Noise

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Homeland” Season 6, Episode 2, “The Man in the Basement,” contains spoilers.]

Immediate Reaction

Hold on, we have to wipe the tears from our eyes. Give us a second. […] Ok, I think we can put some words together now. Carrie and Quinn watching the video of his near-death from Sarin gas exposure was…well, it was heartbreaking. Not only do we never need to see that video again — “Homeland’s” insistence on showing it, over and over, is getting to be a bit much — but Quinn’s reaction to it shows just how much damage was inflicted.

After saying he’d never seen the video, he told Carrie he now wanted to see it. She told him what happened, filling in the narrative around the video before and after showing it, and they watched as Quinn convulsed, foamed at the mouth, and pissed himself. But the true pain hit after the video ended, when Carrie explained how she found him. “You saved me? »

This Is How Barack Obama Is Spending His First Vacation Since Leaving the White House

12 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Barack Obama's last day as president was on Jan. 19, so how is he spending his first real vacation in eight years? By playing a round of golf, of course. On Saturday, the former president hit up Oracle founder Larry Ellison's private golf club in Rancho Mirage, CA, where he was spotted lining up his shot and driving around the course. Barack is currently vacationing with wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia, and on Inauguration Day, the family released a video sharing their plans for the coming months. "After eight years in the White House, Michelle and I now rejoin all of you as private citizens," Barack said. Michelle then explained, "First, we're going to take a little break. We're finally going to get some sleep and take some time to be with our family and just be still for a little bit." If anyone deserves a vacation, »

‘Saturday Night Live’ Host Aziz Ansari to Donald Trump: ‘Don’t Tweet About Me Being Lame’ (Watch)

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

Comedian Aziz Ansari was given the plum gig of hosting “Saturday Night Live” the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, and in his nearly nine-minute monologue, he squarely took aim at the new president.

Pretty cool to know he’s probably at home right now watching a brown guy make fun of him, right?” said Ansari.

The “Master of None” star then went on to talk about Trump voters, comparing them to people who listen to Chris Brown’s music.

“I’m sure there’s a lot of people voted for Trump the same way a lot of people listen to the music of Chris Brown,” he said, “where it’s like, ‘Hey, man! I’m just here for the tunes. I don’t know about that other stuff… I don’t condone the extracurriculars.’”

Joked Ansari: “If you think about it, Donald Trump is basically the Chris Brown of politics. And »

Woody Harrelson Confirms Role in ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff (Watch)

17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s official: Woody Harrelson is joining “Star Wars.”

The actor confirmed Variety‘s story from earlier this month that reported he’ll be in the upcoming Han Solo spinoff during an interview at the Variety Studio presented by Orville Redenbacher at the Sundance Film Festival.

Asked by Variety if he would be playing Han Solo’s mentor in the spinoff, Harrelson responded, “Yeah, I am.”

On Jan. 3, Variety reported that Harrelson was the top choice to play the mentor to Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo. At the time, however, talks were still in early stages. Harrelson is at Sundance to promote his new movie “Wilson,” which also stars Laura Dern.

‘Saturday Night Live’: Putin Mocks Trump’s Inauguration (Watch)

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

Alec Baldwin may have gotten the night off with his much-praised portrayal of Donald Trump, but Beck Bennett took center stage as Vladimir Putin on “Saturday Night Live” to reassure Americans in the wake of President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

“Relax, I got this. Putie’s going to make everything Ok,” announced a shirtless Bennett-as-Putin. “I promise that we will take care of America. It is the most expensive thing we have ever bought.”

He acknowledged the skepticism of the newly elected President — but pointed out he’s had skeptics, too, but they haven’t been heard from since. “It’s like they’re gone. It always works out,” he assured.

In response to yesterday’s women’s marches, “Putin” introduced a Russian woman: Fan favorite Olya, played by Kate McKinnon.

“Hello. I am Olya, a Russian woman,” said McKinnon-as-Olya, who was reciting from a card. “I am so happy. Each »

18 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last night on “SNL,” Leslie Jones raised what now seems like an obvious question: Why did almost no one know this story before? Watch below.

Saturday Night Live Mocks Film Twitter With Hilarious ‘La La Land’ Sketch

18 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Saturday Night Live” isn’t always our favorite show: It’s fairly hit-or-miss, and even great actors (Felicity Jones) don’t always fit into their comedic live space, making for a dud of an episode. But ever since the Illegitimate Presidency of Donald, SNL has kind of been firing on all cylinders. The ubiquitous presence of Alec Baldwin as Drumpf surely hasn’t hurt.

Appropriate guests who know stage and live crowd work help, too.

Aziz Ansari Pays the Price For Not Loving La La Land in This Hilarious SNL Skit

19 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

La La Land may have broken the record for most Golden Globes won by a single film after snagging seven awards at the ceremony this month, but one person who wasn't all that impressed with the film was this week's Saturday Night Live host, Aziz Ansari. A few sketches after a shirtless Vladimir Putin (played by Beck Bennett) took aim at President Trump's inauguration crowds, Aziz participated in a skit in which he gets arrested for saying La La Land wasn't his favorite movie of the year. The nerve, right? If you're in need of a laugh, you need to watch this. Related:Kellyanne Conway Reveals the Real Reason She Joined Trump's Campaign in a Chicago-Inspired SNL Skit »
