Stephen Colbert Remakes 'The Usual Suspects' With Trump and Putin

15 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Who is Keyser Soze?

This time around, it's The Late Show's Stephen Colbert. The host has created his own version of the '90s film The Usual Suspects, now focused on the mystery of President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, and the real nature of their relationship. 

In his "remake," Colbert stars as Kevin Spacey's character, reimagining the final interrogation scene of the original film when he is questioned by Chazz Palminteri's police officer character.

But when he insists that Colbert must "know something," the late-night host simply agrees.

"Yes! I do know something! And I'm telling you everything, you're just not »

Breaking: Bryan Singer Announced To Direct Fox's X-men TV Series Pilot

25 January 2017 11:03 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We have learned that veteran X-Men director and producer Bryan Singer has been given the reins to direct Fox's X-Men TV series pilot, created by the talented mind of Matt Nix.

Singer is no amateur to this franchise as he has directed; X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past (my favorite), X-Men 2, and the original X-Men. Let us also not forget that he directed one of the greatest cult movies of all time, The Usual Suspects, and he directed Superman Returns which both another writer and myself here actually liked quite a bit. The Fox X-Men TV series will be Singer's most recent venture after his TV shows Battle Creek and the Munster's reboot entitled Mockingbird Lane.

We also need to realize that this show is created by the great Matt Nix, who taught us after creating Burn Notice that Bruce Campbell is more than just Ash from The Evil Dead, »

He steels himself for the loneliness, ridicule and constant insinuations about his sexuality.
