All of Revenge‘s key players are (finally!) on the same page about Emily’s identity, but after everything that’s happened during the past four seasons — and 20+ years — can the Clarkes ever rebuild the father-daughter relationship they once had?

“I think the love that’s always existed between them is absolutely unchanged,” James Tupper (aka David Clarke) tells TVLine. “There’s a missing 20 years of their relationship, and that void has to be filled, but the love is definitely still there.”
Below, Tupper discusses his approach »
Here’s a throwback for all the children of the late '70s and '80s. Created by Dave Stevens, Cliff Secord was a stunt pilot who discovered a mysterious jet pack, which gave him the ability to fly. Donning the equipment, Secord became The Rocketeer, a crime-fighter who took on, among other foes, the Nazis. Stevens’ airborne adventurer first appeared in comic book form in 1982. Then, in 1991, he flew onto the big screen in Disney’s “The Rocketeer," directed by Joe Johnston (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Jumanji,” “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”). Bill Campbell (now Billy Campbell, and perhaps most recognizable for his portrayal of Darren Richmond on “The Killing”) played the titular stuntman. As a lead-in to the film, which opened in late June 1991, Campbell hosted a half-hour documentary on the character and mankind’s ever-burning desire to fly unimpeded.

Last month, the cinema raised £2,700 for Mind with special screenings of Williams's Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society.
Director of fundraising at Mind Kathleen Miles said: "We have all been genuinely touched by the generosity of Prince Charles Cinema, and their wonderful audience, who have dug deep to support Mind as they celebrate the remarkable career of Robin Williams.
"Depression is a very real illness, which can affect anybody regardless of their age, gender, ethnic group, profession or social status, and money raised during the Prince Charles Cinema Robin Williams season will help Mind to be there for anyone experiencing a mental health problem. »

Exclusive: Joe Johnston has signed with Paradigm, reuniting the filmmaker with his longtime reps Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer. The writer-director moves from Wme, where he signed in March as Kanter and Spencer were leaving Resolution. He worked with Kanter for years at CAA and then left to join the dealmaker at Resolution, where it didn’t work out. The prolific writer-director is quite a catch for Paradigm; Johnston’s hits include Captain America: The First Avenger, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Jumanji and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. He stepped up to direct after winning an Oscar for Visual Effects for his work on Raiders Of The Lost Ark and also did the visual effects on such blockbusters as the original Star Wars trilogy, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and The Rocketeer.

While he was often celebrated for his funny, heartwarming roles in comedies like Mrs. Doubtfire and Jumanji, the late Robin Williams wasn’t shy when tackling more emotionally challenging characters. In fact, in 1998 he won his sole Oscar for his portrayal of the embittered psychiatrist Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting. Indeed, one of his final roles brings to life a man searching for meaning. In Boulevard, Williams played Nolan Mack, a married man stuck in a rut with wife Joy (Kathy Baker), who realizes he’s gay [...] »

"Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems." - Robin Williams, "World's Greatest Dad" This is a very emotional "Ask Drew." This is, I would suspect, the closest you're ever going to see to me losing it on camera completely. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when there was a Robin Williams question, since it's still so fresh and so raw for so many people, but I couldn't have known just how hard it would be to talk about him. I mean, I have stared at the blinking cursor on my blank document page for almost two days now, grappling with one question: how in the hell do you even remotely begin to sum up someone as huge as Robin Williams? We could start from the personal angle. I could tell you about the occasional e-mails I got from him when I was at Ain't It Cool, or the »

The Flickering Myth writing staff pay their respects to Robin Williams…
Following the tragic news yesterday, the Flickering Myth writing staff remeber one of the greatest comedic performers of our generation…
Matt Spencer-Skeen: True comic genius, who transcended generations and ages. Will be missed sorely.
Vilordsutch: This man has been with me since I discovered his manic and quick-witted comedy, as a very small child, with Mork and Mindy and I’ve stayed with him (through his career) ever since. Such a sad thing knowing his mental state had given him this only option. My thoughts are with his family.
Oliver Davis: For some reason I’m pining most for Jack, Patch Adams and Bicentennial Man today. Although not his critically lauded works, worn-out VHS copy scenes keep playing in my mind’s eye. I watched all three when I was in my very early teens and each made me weep heartily. »
