With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, as evidenced in the latest still from the film, which shows someone who looks like they came from Dr. Frankenstein's lab.
Revealed by Bloody Disgusting, the new still from Rob Zombie's 31 features a very memorable member of the Murder World proceedings. Though the official cast member and character in the still haven't been announced, there are physical similarities between this character and Richard Brake's Doom-Head, who was revealed in a shadow-shrouded still in March, so they very well could be one and the same.

We certainly felt the power of 10 former Gladiators yesterday, as we took a look at what some of the stars went on to after the success of ITV's '90s hit.
We were bowled over to discover that Blaze (Eunice Huthart) is a stunt double to A-listers and godmother to Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh, and that Rhino (Mark Smith) went on to star in Hollywood films including Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama Argo.
But whatever happened to the villainous Wolf or the infamous Shadow, who was dramatically sacked from the series? We haven't found many current pictures of this lot, but here's a little bit about what 9 more of our favourite former Gladiators got up to after their time on the show:
1. Scorpio (Nikki Diamond)
Contenders were subjected to the mighty sting of the speedy Scorpio. Former bodybuilder and model Nikki Diamond was an original Gladiator, but was forced »

Two eerie scarecrow creations make for an unsettling atmosphere in one of two new photos from Rob Zombie's 31. Currently in the editing stage, Zombie's latest Halloween-set horror film will feature eclectic, creepy characters aplenty, including Sick-Head, Doom-Head, Sister Serpent, Father Murder and more.

The project from Denis Leary was the cabler’s first scripted half-hour comedy. The series followed a group of EMTs in Chicago and starred Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley and Jessica McNamee. Leary produced with Bob Fisher.
“Sirens” had a very passionate fanbase, but Variety has learned USA decided not to go forward with a third season because the series didn’t find a big enough audience, especially given that the network did not own the property.
“Sirens,” whose cancellation was first reported by Deadline, was joined by “Benched” on the network’s new comedy slate, which was pulled after one season. However, USA is committed to its other comedies, “Playing House” and “Donny,” a satirical, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”-style sitcom starring Donny Deutsch, which was handed a six-episode order.
On the drama side, USA is making a »

Blake Lively has a box of chocolates. As I enter into the junket room, before the interview is set to begin, I comment on what a nice collection of chocolates it seems to be. She graciously offers me one. I graciously refuse. She leans back, smiles and confides that she’s really happy I didn’t take her up on the offer. She wants all the chocolates for herself. This leads into a two-minute discussion on the “fake offer” – when you offer someone some small gesture/thing out of politeness; but don’t really actually want to do/give it to them. I explain – I do this all the time. It would have been rude of me to take her up on the offer (i.e. eat a stranger’s chocolate). I’m actually fairly sure there’s a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode about this very dilemma. The cameras haven »

Hell hath no fury like a perpetually under-appreciated, eternally abused and currently marginalized political lackey scorned.
On Sunday’s Veep, Selina’s long-suffering aide Gary stopped being polite and started getting really angry at his boss, resulting in a jaw-dropping confrontation that was three years in the making. At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, the showdown — expertly acted by Emmy winners Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and Tony Hale — dramatically altered the power dynamic between the two characters, while also setting up a doozy of a mystery: What did Selina do on that fateful Labor Day, and how exactly did Gary cover (or clean) it up? »
Taking a break from his latterday role as revolutionary political Jesus, Russell Brand has signed up for a Nicolas Cage comedy, joining the zen warlock for Army Of One. Larry Charles (Borat, Curb Your Enthusiasm) is directing, and has also been rounding out the rest of his cast with Rainn Wilson, Denis O’Hare, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer and Wendi McLendon-Covey.The film is adapted by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph from a stranger-than-fiction GQ article by Chris Heath (perhaps strangely, given Brand's antipathy for one of that publication's recent sponsors).The story revolves around Colorado resident Gary Faulkner, who decided in 2010 that he was going to be the man to take down Osama Bin Laden. His plan was to track down and wipe out the most wanted man on the planet armed only with a sword he bought from a home shopping network, a pair of night-vision goggles and »
“Veep and Silicon Valley are terrific series, and I’m immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year. Along with Game of Thrones and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, both of which have already been renewed for 2016, they give HBO a stellar Sunday night like no other.”
Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, just debuted its fourth season – and last with series creator Armando Iannuci, who stepped down as the showrunner last week. He’ll be replaced by Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s David Mandel for the now-assured fifth season.
Meanwhile, Silicon Valley, an ensemble tech comedy, »

Sister Dragon, Doom-Head, Father Murder, Lucky Leo—these are the names of just a handful of the bizarre, intriguing characters inhabiting Rob Zombie’s 31, which wraps filming shortly and is on the verge of entering the editing stage. To hold horror hounds over until more looks at his creatively conjured nightmare are revealed, Zombie recently unveiled a new photo from 31, showing Tracey Walter having a good time playing Lucky Leo.
Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show." Jane Carr (Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother) plays Sister Serpent, "a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. »

HBO has handed out early renewal orders for its acclaimed comedy series "Veep" and "Silicon Valley". The news comes a day after both shows aired their season premieres.
"Veep" will return for a fifth season, but it will also be the first without series creator Armando Iannuci who stepped down as show runner last week. David Mandel ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") will take over. "Silicon Valley" will return for a third season
With both "Game of Thrones" and "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver" already renewed for 2016, HBO's current Sunday night line-up at this point in 2016 should be exactly the same.

Amidst all the buzz around "Game of Thrones" over the weekend, you'd be forgiven if you didn't know "Silicon Valley" and "Veep" also made their season premieres Sunday night. Well, apparently enough people watched both returns for HBO's liking, as both were just renewed for third and fifth seasons, respectively. The renewal news come via HBO in a press release, where HBO's president of programming notes he's "immensely proud that they will return to HBO next year." But it's not all sunshine and lollipops for the Julia Louis-Dreyfus-lead sitcom, because The Hollywood Reporter reported over the weekend how "Veep" showrunner, Armando Iannucci, will not return for this newly-announced season. There's apparently no ill-will or bickering, but rather "The Thick of It" creator wants to spend more time with his family in his U.K. origins, and this American show has restricted him from such activities. Taking over for Iannucci's »

Two of HBO’s best comedies will return in 2016. HBO announced today that it has ordered Silicon Valley Season 3 and Veep Season 5, just a day after the shows began their second and fourth seasons, respectively. This is fantastic news and bolsters HBO’s Spring 2016 lineup, with Game of Thrones and Last Week Tonight having already been renewed. Created by Mike Judge, Silicon Valley gained both critical and commercial praise for its first season, and judging by last night’s Season 2 premiere it hasn’t lost its step. Indeed, Allison said the show is still “the perfect blend of nuanced tech speak and sparklingly creative vulgarities” in her review of the first few episodes. If you missed it, check out Chris’ full recap of the season premiere right here. [caption id="attachment_436927" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via HBO[/caption] As for Veep, the political comedy also continues to soar thanks to an impeccable ensemble cast. Sadly, though, »
