Patching up wounds in space has to be easier than attending to Jack Donaghy’s every whim, doesn’t it?
Star Trek: Discovery has added a trio of actors to play Starfleet officers, CBS All Access announced on Monday. And among them is Maulik Pancholy, who played Jack’s (too) loyal assistant Jonathan for seven seasons on NBC’s 30 Rock. Pancholy will play Dr. Nambue, the chief medical officer aboard the Starship Shenzou, Discovery‘s primary vessel. (That makes him the new show’s Bones McCoy, right?)

“Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were?”
That is among the questions at the fore of Hulu’s upcoming Marvel’s Runaways adaptation, and TVLine has a first look at the “Pride” Aka parents of the titular youths.
Among the familiar faces on hand are James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Annie Wersching (24), as well as Kevin Weisman (Alias), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives) and Ever Carradine (Major Crimes).
Our obsession with Sterling K. Brown has reached an all-time high this year with his performances in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us, but we've also fallen in love with his sweet, sweet family. The actor has been married to his college sweetheart, Ryan Michelle Bathe, for nine years, and they've given us multiple glimpses of their cute relationship on the red carpet and social media. After meeting and falling in love at Stanford University, the two tied the knot in June 2007 and are now parents to two adorable sons - they've even shared the screen on Army Wives and This Is Us. Sterling may be dreamy in his own right, but it's his relationship with Ryan that really gives us heart eyes. Related:Someone Crown Sterling K.

The Purge is a franchise that has tried to hold up a black mirror to its audience, but not shove it in its face. It was never intended to be a ‘what if’ view or a warning of things to come, but there are those who believe the actions of The Purge could be something that really happen in the world we currently live in. A society where, for one night only, all crimes are legal including murder. The first film, made for just $3 million, grossed nearly $90 million worldwide, and its sequel – The Purge: Anarchy – surpassed that with $111 million worldwide, upping the ante of the action.
