Harrison Ford Reveals What Pushed Him to Finally Try Skydiving and His Big Plans to Jump Solo

Harrison Ford Reveals What Pushed Him to Finally Try Skydiving and His Big Plans to Jump Solo
Harrison Ford might just be adding “skydiver” to his extensive résumé.

The actor, 76, opened up about his latest adventure while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday in which he revealed he went skydiving in New Zealand during a recent holiday.

“So was that your first time skydiving? Why would you wait so long to skydive?” Ellen DeGeneres, 61, asked The Secret Life of Pets 2 actor.

“Probably because Liam said he wanted to do it,” Ford said, explaining it was 18-year-old son’s “idea.”

He added, “But it was fun, it was great. I did like it.”

David E. Kelley Would Support an ‘Ally McBeal’ Reboot, but With a Female Showrunner

David E. Kelley Would Support an ‘Ally McBeal’ Reboot, but With a Female Showrunner
When “Ally McBeal” premiered in the late ’90s, many critics applauded the legal drama for its portrayal of a flawed, complex woman in a central role. The show also sparked a national conversation when Time magazine infamously put Calista Flockhart’s face on its cover next to Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, asking, “Is feminism dead?”

Despite the controversial opinions regarding the show’s handling of female representation, critics still write about the show being far ahead of its time.

More than 20 years after “Ally McBeal” premiered, television is now showcasing some of the best roles for women, as female characters have progressed immensely to avoid tired tropes and stereotypes.

So, in this age of endless reboots, could “Ally McBeal” make a comeback?

David E. Kelley — the creator of “Ally McBeal” and some of TV’s most successful shows from “Boston Legal” to “Chicago Hope” to “Picket

Supergirl's Andrea Brooks Defends Eve: 'She's Not a Full-Blown Sociopath'

Supergirl's Andrea Brooks Defends Eve: 'She's Not a Full-Blown Sociopath'
The only thing that surprised Supergirl actress Andrea Brooks about her character’s villainous reveal is how long it took for the truth to finally come out.

“I don’t want to say it’s been in talks since Day 1, but there were always jokes circulating on set,” Brooks tells TVLine of Eve Teschmacher embracing her dark side. “Writers would come up to me from time to time, telling me that there were possibilities, but it wasn’t until this season that they actually sat me down and told me the direction she was going in.”

Sam Rockwell movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘Moon,’ ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’

Sam Rockwell movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘Moon,’ ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’
During one of his many award speeches in 2018 for his supporting role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri,” Sam Rockwell proclaimed himself a character actor as opposed to your traditional leading man. The line between those two types of actors is often blurry and Rockwell himself has vacillated from supporting roles to lead roles throughout his career.

Rockwell’s success has been a long time coming. He moved to New York at a very young age after attending a school for the arts in San Francisco. He worked steadily on the stage and television building up a resume of small roles. He would eventually gain name recognition during the 1990s heyday of independent film, in particular with the films “Lawn Dogs” and “Box of Moonlight” starting to get the actor noticed.

He began to work frequently with playwright turned film director Martin McDonaugh, eventually leading to the point where McDonaugh described him as his muse.

Supergirl: Why Supergirl Feels Less Super

  • TVfanatic
Supergirl is like the girl version of Superman.

There. No need for an introductory paragraph. I said it.

Supergirl was Arrowverse’s first female-led superhero show, and it was just apt to have it that way. Even before the news came out, it was a no-brainer that the first female superhero who would get their own show within the Arrowverse starts with Wonder, Bat, or Super.

When the first news broke about Supergirl being made into series in 2014, the excitement was overflowing. Add to that the news of Calista Flockhart and Chyler Leigh casting into the roles of Cat Grant and Alex Danvers, respectively.

Also, being a fan of the multiple incarnations of Superman in films and television, I couldn’t help but be intrigued about what could make Supergirl, as the main hero, different than when she was just a side character next to her famous super-cousin.

Charity Reading of ‘Terms of Endearment’ Sends Star Cast Into Tears

Charity Reading of ‘Terms of Endearment’ Sends Star Cast Into Tears
Despite a 35-year heads-up that “Terms of Endearment” is a masterful tearjerker, a starry charity reading of the Oscar-winning screenplay ended in sobs on Monday in Los Angeles.

Actors Calista Flockhart, Constance Wu, Kumail Nanjiani, Alfred Molina, Melissa Benoist, and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Kate Burton all shed tears while performing the script — some in the context of their scenes, but mostly in observing their co-stars perform the 1983 James L. Brooks drama.

“I was so embarrassed, I tried to hold it in so much. I was ducking down in my chair,” Wu told Variety, crediting the “story and writing of this caliber, it’s almost impossible not to. The words do that to you.”

The reading benefited the Hollywood-backed Stand Up 2 Cancer Foundation, as well as the event’s host venue the Geffen Playhouse Theater in L.A.’s Westwood neighborhood. It was produced by TV mogul Greg Berlanti’s

Question: Any spoilers for the coming season of Grey‘s Anatomy? —Josephine

Ausiello: In case there was any doubt, the father of Teddy’s unborn oven bun is definitely Owen. As Kim Raver notes, the finale twist was foreshadowed in Season 14’s 17th episode, which allowed “the audience to understand the love relationship that… [Teddy] and Owen have.” But Raver is quick to remind us that the pair’s road to parenthood will be paved with at least one massive landmine.

Lynda Carter’s Returning To Supergirl For Season 4

Supergirl has always been great for bringing in actors with a history in the DC universe. Its legacy castings have included Smallville‘s Erica Durance, Laura Vandervoort and, most recently, Sam Witwer as well as Lois & Clark‘s Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher. Probably the most fan-pleasing, though, is the appointment of Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, as none other than the President of the United States, Olivia Marsdin.

If you’re hoping to see more of her, we’ve got good news, as the iconic actress has announced that she’s set to return to Supergirl at some point in season 4. Carter shared the news on her Twitter account, where alongside a behind the scenes image of herself and star Melissa Benoist, she wrote that she loved working with the Girl of Steel and was “delighted” to be coming back as President Marsdin.

This is a big deal, as

Film Review: ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’

Film Review: ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is purportedly the most-produced of all the Bard’s plays, but neither that nugget nor its cinematically friendly fantasy elements has done it many favors on film. Hollywood’s most famous stab was a notorious flop — stage titan Max Reinhardt’s garish 1935 Warner Bros. extravaganza featuring such unlikely (and highly variable) Shakespearean actors as Dick Powell, James Cagney, Mickey Rooney and Joe E. Brown. An almost equally starry 1999 effort, shot in Italy with Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Calista Flockhart and Christian Bale, wasn’t much better.

Since then there’s been the lamentably self-explanatory “A Midsummer Night’s Rave,” and the inexplicable “Strange Magic,” one Disney cartoon that children of all ages found easy to resist. That’s 80 years of evidence suggesting “Dream” might best be left sleeping by American filmmakers.

All the more surprising, then, that director-adapter Casey Wilder Mott’s debut feature proves
