Justice League: The Flash's Dad Is Actually a Very Famous Actor

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Warner Bros. Ok, maybe Justice League isn't the best superhero movie that's ever been made, but there's still plenty of room to enjoy it. Once you look beyond the sad Amazonian costume redesign (and the other myriad issues), it's still an action-packed, much more lighthearted, overall sort of entertaining addition to the cinematic branch of the DC Extended Universe. All things considered, some of the best fun during Justice League comes from the little Easter eggs that are sprinkled throughout. You know, like the postcredits scene and the little superhero cameo. Oh, and then there's the (very handsome) man who plays the father of the Flash aka Barry Allen aka Mr. Ezra Miller, who is also very handsome. Barry's dad, Henry Allen, only pops up in a couple of Justice League scenes. Henry is in prison for allegedly murdering Barry's mom, Nora Allen. Near the beginning of Justice League,

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale
As far as audience surrogates go, you can’t get any better or time-tested than a wide-eyed optimist thrust into the middle of a culture shock. “There’s…Johnny!” protagonist Andy Klavin (Ian Nelson) ticks all those boxes, becoming a gateway to the backstage world at the Johnny Carson-hosted “Tonight Show” in Hulu’s new seven-part comedy series. But there’s a distinct style and approach to the show around Andy that elevates this from a comedy curiosity or a wistful passion project to something worth immersing in.

Rather than re-creating faint replications of antics from the time when Carson ruled late night, “There’s…Johnny!” (originally produced for Seeso, before that comedy service shut down) uses actual archival footage from the show, even incorporating memorable moments as significant plot points for the characters just off-camera. Johnny, Ed McMahon, and even a few notable guest stars pop up on

Kate Hudson Responds to Brad Pitt Dating Rumors: ‘I Kind of Liked It’

Kate Hudson Responds to Brad Pitt Dating Rumors: ‘I Kind of Liked It’

That being said, Hudson added that this was one false report that she didn’t necessarily mind. “It was kind of an awesome rumor. I kind of liked it,” she quipped. “I was like, ‘Ok, fine. We’re having twins!'”

Penny Lane forever! Kate Hudson opened up about her 2000 hit Almost Famous during her appearance on Tuesday night’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

“It holds up,” she said of the beloved film which earned her an Oscar nomination. “I just watched it with Ryder not too long ago. It was really cool to watch that because I hadn’t seen that in so long and it’s still cool. Ryder, he’s 13, so to him it was like, he loved every second of that movie. It’s cool to be a part of a movie like that.”

But Hudson, 38, has no plans to make a sequel to the film, saying, “I would say a sequel to -- I got a couple. Almost Famous would be fun, but I wouldn't wanna touch that. But maybe How to Lose a Guy. That would be fun.”

Soundtracking: "Almost Famous"

Chris Feil's weekly series looks back at Cameron Crowe's rock opus...

Of everything that Almost Famous gets right about our relationship with music, its richest insights come from how it explores the importance of music in adolescence. Cameron Crowe is telling his own story of his teenage music journalism days in the film, but that’s not solely why the film feels so personal. It’s personal because it’s about that time in our life when music is never more personal.

When Crowe stand-in William Miller is gifted a treasure chest of vinyl from his sister Anita she isn’t just handing over the greats, she’s tasking him to find himself. At that age our musical taste is a vessel to both define ourselves and connect to others, to develop some kind of community or shared experience. It’s in the background of every heartbreak and happy memory,
