Patrick Stewart Had No Clue Who Sting Was When They Worked Together on 'Dune'

Patrick Stewart Had No Clue Who Sting Was When They Worked Together on 'Dune'
Someone send an Sos for Patrick Stewart.

The 77-year-old X-Men and Star Trek actor has an amazing, and somewhat embarrassing, story from his time working on David Lynch's Dune.

In a video from Emerald City Comic Con — which was taken in 2013 but only recently came to light online — Stewart told the crowd that while he was working on the 1984 sci-fi epic, he had no idea his co-star Sting was a famous musician.

After being asked what it was like to work with Sting, Stewart, who played Gurney Halleck, began by saying he was actually miscast in the film....

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Not-So-a-List Host John Mulaney Earns an A Grade

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Not-So-a-List Host John Mulaney Earns an A Grade
It’s easy to forget, but John Mulaney was never actually a ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member. Yes, he’d make the occasional pop-in to Weekend Update as a correspondent — “Shut the door.” — and even starred on his own Lorne Michaels-produced sitcom (with former “SNL” cast members Nasim Pedrad and Martin Short) titled “Mulaney.” We try not to talk about that second part. But Mulaney was never even a featured player at any point. Instead, he was a writer for six seasons. That time ended in 2012, but not before he gave the “SNL” viewing audience such joys as Stefon (which he co-created with Bill Hader), “Family Flix: Rocket Dog” (more on that later), and “The Obama Show,” to name just a select few. He’s also performed on Broadway, no big deal.

Still, the same people who claim to be comedy experts seem to have no idea who John Mulaney is.

‘Saturday Night Live’: Robert De Niro’s Robert Mueller Grills Ben Stiller’s Michael Cohen

‘Saturday Night Live’: Robert De Niro’s Robert Mueller Grills Ben Stiller’s Michael Cohen
Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller reunited in this week’s “Saturday Night Live” cold open, with De Niro playing Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Stiller playing Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

The two “Meet the Parents” stars paid homage to the iconic lie detector scene from the film, with Mueller grilling Cohen about his work for the President. They also called back to the question of whether or not you can milk a cat. Cohen accused Mueller and his team of bias, which Mueller refuted by saying they use codenames for the President and his family to prevent emotion from coming into it.

Ryan Reynolds Had the Perfect Zinger for Hugh Jackman on His Anniversary

  • The Wrap
What would our Twitter feeds be without Ryan Reynolds?

The “Deadpool” star struck again with a perfect roast on Hugh Jackman’s anniversary with his wife, Deborra-lee Furness, who have been together for 22 years now. Albeit, this zinger was a little nicer than some of Reynolds’ previous jabs.

Reynolds quotes Jackman’s anniversary tweet, which said “I believe in life we need to see and truly be seen by the most important people in our lives. Deb, from day one, we had that. 22 years later … it only gets deeper. You and the kids are the greatest gift I will ever receive. I love you a gazillion times around the world.”

This isn’t the first time Reynolds has taken to Twitter to shade the “Greatest Showman” star. Back in November, he told Jackman he was just a “speed bump” on the road of sexiness that leads to Sir Patrick Stewart.

You’re both just speed bumps on the road to @SirPatStew. Outta the way. https://t.co/yglw2kegAB

Jeff, if there was a fire and I had to choose a family member to save, obviously it’d be me. But if I had time to save one more, you can be damn sure I’d call the fire department.

Kick-Ass 2 director discusses his original X-Force movie plans

X-Force is set to make its big screen debut next month as Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth assembles his mercenary buddies in Deadpool 2, paving the way for their very own X-Force movie from writer-director Drew Goddard.

However, Fox did intend on unleashing X-Force much sooner, tapping Kick-Ass 2 helmer Jeff Wadlow to write and direct, only for the project to be put on hold when the original Deadpool test footage leaked online, prompting Fox to green light Wade Wilson’s solo movie.

During an interview with Collider to promote his new movie Truth or Dare [read our review here], Wadlow has been chatting about what he had planned for X-Force had Fox not decided to go down a different route.

“I wrote a draft and they really liked it. They just reached a critical moment, where they were deciding whether they were going to make Deadpool or X-Force. I’ve always loved

Legion Creator Noah Hawley Reveals Why Professor X Hasn’t Appeared

Season 2 of the X-Men-inspired series Legion is just as madcap and utterly complicated as season 1 was. Therefore, the show’s creator, Noah Hawley, is being forced to answer some difficult questions. You know, like, when will Professor Charles Xavier make an appearance?

The FX spinoff has made more than a few references to the telepath, including his iconic wheelchair. After all, David Haller (Dan Stevens), Legion’s protagonist, is Xavier’s adopted son and has been battling the parasitic Shadow King since being recruited by a mutant rebellion. Still, despite the show’s many connections to Professor X, he’s yet to reunite with his kin on the small screen.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hawley addressed this and disclosed that it isn’t a “rights issue or a legal issue” holding them back. Rather, “it’s more about corporate synergy.”

“It’s not a rights issue or a legal issue,

Dan Stevens comments on whether other X-Men characters could appear in Legion

Dan Stevens, the star of Legion for FX, has commented on if other X-Men characters could make an appearance on the show.

Legion returned to TV screens this week for its second season, having previously impressed critics and audiences with its visually audacious take on the character of David Haller (Professor X’s son).

Speaking on Larry King Now (via ComicBook.com), Stevens said that while there were no plans for David to appear in any future X-Men film, that it is possible for some X-Men characters to feature on Legion:

“That’s a good question,” Stevens said. “That’s probably a question for some execs over at Fox rather than me. There’s definitely scope for that. Again, in the X-Men universe, David Haller is the bastard son of Professor X, Charles Xavier, played by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy in the movies. He’s definitely referred to and referenced throughout the seasons,

‘Legion 2×01′ Review

Legion is a show that is unlike any other, it proved that in the first season, and now it is back the first episode has arrived with a mind-blowing bang. If you expected any semblance of normality from this show, you’ll be disappointed. One thing you can be sure of is Legion is back and better than ever.

David (Dan Stevens) is back, but in the time, he has been gone things have changed for his friends. With Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) still at large, Division 3 need all the help they can get. The question is, just what is David hiding?

What this episode has proven to me is that Legion is my favourite show, unless Twin Peaks returns for another season of course. A lot has changed in the world of Legion between season one and two, with the most important change being that everybody works for Division 3 now.

Hunt for X-Men Easter Eggs in Deadpool 2 Where's Waldo? Poster
Ryan Reynolds shared a new Deadpool 2 poster in the style of Where's Waldo?, featuring a bunch of Easter Eggs and a virtual history of the X-Men on the big screen. A new trailer for Deadpool 2 has just been released and the marketing campaign for the May 18th release has been kicked into high gear, which means that Ryan Reynolds has been doing his fair share to promote the sequel on social media and will more than likely continue to do so until the movie is released. The new poster is the latest in the Easter Egg-themed promotional material for Deadpool 2.

Ryan Reynolds posted the new Deadpool 2 poster on his Instagram account with a caption that reads, "I like eggs three ways: scrambled, poached or hidden." And there's a lot of stuff hidden in this new Where's Waldo-themed poster. The Merc with a Mouth is pretty easy

X-Men 2 Was Originally Going to Adapt The Phoenix Saga

X2: X-Men United co-writer Zak Penn has revealed the sequel very nearly adapted the famous ‘Phoenix Saga’. The original X-Men is often credited with kicking off the modern popularity of comic book movies. The film treated its source material with respect and assembled a great cast, including Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Hugh Jackman. The success of the movie has spawned a long-running franchise and led to studios taking risks on other comic properties.

Simon Pegg blames a bad marketing campaign for Star Trek Beyond box office performance

Simon Pegg blames a bad marketing campaign for Star Trek Beyond box office performance
A few days ago, Star Trek actor Simon Pegg revealed that Paramount Pictures already had a completed script for Star Trek 4 prior to Quentin Tarantino pitching his own idea for an R-rated instalment in the long-running sci-fi series.

Paramount had already announced a fourth entry in the rebooted series prior to the release of Star Trek Beyond, which would have seen Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as George Kirk, father to Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk. However, the studio applied the breaks (or at least slowed development down from warp speed to impulse power) on Trek 4 when Beyond didn’t quite perform as well as expected at the box office – something that actor and co-writer Simon Pegg attributes to a bad marketing campaign:

“I think it was poorly marketed, to be honest,” Pegg tells Geek. “If you look at a film like Suicide Squad, that was around for such

The Deadpool 2 Trailer Featured An Awesome Professor X Easter Egg

With unarguably the biggest superhero movie of all time dominating the comic book airwaves with its impending April 27th release, you might’ve missed (not bloody likely) yesterday’s debut of a new trailer for Deadpool 2.

Full of inventive vulgarity, kickass action and our best look at Josh Brolin’s Cable yet, amongst the meta references in the sequel’s latest red-band trailer, there’s something that possibly whipped right past you like a speeding bullet from the mercenary’s gun.

At roughly the 1:28 mark, Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) can be seen spinning about in a motorized wheelchair that belongs to none other than Charles Xavier, leader of the X-Men. While it isn’t the only reference to the beloved mutants in the trailer, it’s certainly the funniest.

Portrayed on the big screen by both James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart, the latter has stated, rather famously, that

George Clooney to Narrate Shimon Peres Documentary (Exclusive)

George Clooney to Narrate Shimon Peres Documentary (Exclusive)
George Clooney has come on board to narrate Moriah Films’ documentary “Never Stop Dreaming: The Life and Legacy of Shimon Peres,” Variety has learned.

It’s the 16th film produced by Moriah, the film division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. The production company generates documentaries focused on the Jewish experience as well as contemporary human rights. Two of its films, “Genocide” and “The Long Way Home,” have won the Academy Award for best documentary feature.

Nine months before he died last year, the 92-year-old Peres asked Moriah Films to create a documentary on his life story. “Never Stop Dreaming” includes interviews with President Clinton, President George W. Bush, President Obama, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and Barbra Streisand. The film will be released later this year.

“We deferred production on our documentary about David Ben-Gurion to start working on ‘Never Stop Dreaming,'” director Richard Trank said.

Beatles Singer Ringo Starr Is Knighted by Prince William at Buckingham Palace — See the Pics!

What an honor! Beatles singer Ringo Starr was knighted by Prince William for his services to music at London's Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, March 20. "It means a lot actually. It means recognition for the things we've done musically and in life. So, I was really pleased to accept this award," the 77-year-old music icon told reporters after the special ceremony. When then asked by the BBC what he'll be doing with his new knighthood medal, Ringo — who will now be known as Sir Ringo Starr — jokingly replied, "With this, I'll be wearing it to breakfast." The event interestingly came 21 years after Ringo's Beatles bandmate Paul McCartney was similarly knighted by Queen Elizabeth in Buckingham Palace back in 1977.

Netflix, Key and Peele and Coraline Director Team for Stop-Motion Movie

Netflix, Key and Peele and Coraline Director Team for Stop-Motion Movie
Just days after winning the Best Original Screenplay Oscar, Jordan Peele is reuniting with his Key & Peele co-star/co-creator Keegan-Michael Key for Netflix's Wendell and Wild. Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key will both lend their voices to the two title characters in the stop-motion animated comedy, which will be directed by Henry Selick. This also comes less than two months after Jordan Peele proclaimed that he has retired from acting.

Back in January, just a few days before the Oscar nominations were announced, Jordan Peele revealed in an interview that he was retiring from acting, so he could focus more on his burgeoning filmmaking career. The filmmaker became the first black director to be nominated in both the writing and directing categories for his first feature film, and just the third filmmaker ever to achieve this feat, following Warren Beatty (Heaven Can Wait) and James L. Brooks (Terms of Endearment). Last month,

A Tarantino-Directed Star Trek Movie Is Exactly What The Franchise Needs, Says Karl Urban

Dr. Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy is a fixture of the Star Trek universe.

He was initially brought to life by DeForest Kelley back in the late ’60s, before Karl Urban picked up the torch in time for Paramount’s rebooted series circa 2009.

And after almost 10 years and three big-screen appearances, the former Dredd star believes a Quentin Tarantino-directed Star Trek movie is exactly what the franchise needs at this moment in time. Indeed, it’s going on two years since Justin Lin’s Beyond beamed into theaters, and the illustrious sci-fi series has been on a temporary hiatus ever since – particularly now that J.J. Abrams is entrenched in Lucasfilm’s far-away galaxy ahead of Star Wars: Episode IX.

However, when it comes to Urban and that planned R-rated Trek movie from Tarantino, the former firmly believes that Qt’s particular set of cinematic skills can help catapult Star Trek to new heights.

Professor X Teased To Appear in Legion Season 2

If you were watching the first season of Legion then you were treated to a finale complete with the bombshell reveal that David Haller was adopted, and that his father has a significant role in the X-Men universe. If you are familiar with the Marvel Comic then it wasn't really That big of a surprise.

Series star Dan Stevens spoke with Collider about the reveal and how it would play out in Season 2. But don't get too excited because he also says that fans should be patient with the FX series to find out more about Charles Xavier's role in the show.

Stevens was asked if the reveal would affect David moving forward, he replied, "it's always there."
