It may have gone out with a whimper rather than a bang, but Dexter won’t be remembered for its finale. It’ll be remembered for fully committing to its bonkers premise of a serial killer who channels his violent urges into only dispatching other serial killers; for a truly great ensemble cast; and for that meme of Doakes saying variations on “surprise, motherf*cker.”
The show, which starred Michael C. Hall in the eponymous role, actually had a good line in making the main character seem sympathetic, whilst at the same time pitting him against some truly heinous adversaries. The Following hasn’t got anything on the number of depraved, nasty pieces of work Dexter Morgan wrapped in cling film, all to the delight of the legions of fans the show earned over eight seasons.
But it also angered an entire city, racked up as high a body »

The actor starred in the film as Valentine McKee – a handyman who battles giant killer worms in the Nevada desert - but didn't star in any of its direct-to-video follow-ups or TV spinoff.
"It's a surprisingly good movie, I remember it being a little more sillier than it is," Bacon told Vice.
He added: "[Valentine is] the only character that I've ever done that I'm interested in revisiting 25 years on.
"Because I look at the guy and he's stuck in this town with this other guy, he's got all these dreams, delusions of grandeur… but he's really sort of stuck and when you get to the end of the movie you feel like, you're kind of hopeful »

The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.

Though Don Johnson plays a ruthless oil baron on the new ABC drama Blood & Oil (fka Oil fka Boom), any comparisons to Dallas end there.
“The only thing that we have in common is that tangentially oil is a part of it,” the actor attested Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.
And while Johnson holds the iconic TV character of J.R. Ewing, played by the late Larry Hagman, in high regard, he shrugs off that comparison as well. “I know a lot of these [powerful] guys, »
Would you watch a Marvel movie if it featured Kevin Bacon as a superhero? Now, what if that superhero was nude? And he had one of the infinity stones on his private parts? That's the idea the iconic actor proposes in the latest PSA to come out of Hollywood, which was launched on Mashable. Though, this isn't any average PSA. It's not asking theatergoers to be quiet, or for animal rights, or a proposed march on the nation's capitol. No! Kevin Bacon is asking for more male nudity. Preferably full-frontal nudity.
Kevin Bacon certainly has a bone to pick with Hollywood. He doesn't feel that there are enough male wieners to go around. Yet, there is just so much gratuitous female nudity. Not just in movies, but on television too. He doesn't believe this is fair. Why? Because male actors want to get naked, too. And they simply aren't given the chance. »
But that’s all going to change now with the #FreeTheBacon movement.
Find out how you can help in this funny video and join the movement.
When two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade they decide to take it for a quick joyride. Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences.
Cop Car opens in theatres August 7, 2015 and On Demand and Digital HD August »

Gender equality and representation remains a major issue in entertainment, and one area where it is still an issue is on screen nudity. Though the scales have become more balanced in recent years, and naked bums from both sexes are shown fairly often, there still seems to be decidedly more flashes of vaginas and breasts than penises on the screen.
One of the pioneers famous for getting his penis out is actor Kevin Bacon and today the actor has participated in a mock PSA for Mashable demanding that the on screen male nudity movement is real and needs your support to 'Free the Bacon' - an effort he'd be happy to spearhead. It's an often hilarious 2.5 minute piece with Bacon making fun of himself and the current sexuality-absent state of movie making today.

On Jessica Jones: “I think people knew, as soon as we announced Jessica Jones, Jessica Jones was based on a much more adult comic. The source material came that way. She has real problems with a number of things that she abuses! And we’re not shying away from that. There’s no tidying her up. And Krysten Ritter is killing it.
