Review: ‘Amateur’ Tactfully, Intelligently Explores the Dark Side of College Athletics

One of the most successful things in Amateur, written and directed by Ryan Koo, is the casting of Michael Rainey Jr. as the lead, a young basketball star on the cusp of fame and fortune. Or at least the chance of fame and fortune. Rainey Jr., while a very capable performer, looks the part more than anything else. His character, Terron Forte, is tender. Like so many gifted young people, his talent has arrived before everything else. In every wide-eyed look he gives, every act of faux-confidence he puts on, it is clear this is a child who has been thrust into a situation bigger than him and those who surround him.

There’s his father (Brian White), a punch-drunk ex-football player who never made it, his mother (Sharon Leal), a practical parent who is worried for her boy, and finally Coach Gaines (Josh Charles), an ambitious man driven by

Michael Rainey Jr. in Trailer for Basketball Film 'Amateur' from Netflix

Great Job, Internet!: Let’s recast classic movies without any straight, white dudes

Last year, the University Of Southern California conducted a study that—gasp—found Hollywood to be a playground for straight, white dudes. Only one-third of speaking characters were female, while 28.3 percent were portrayed by performers of color. These statistics, it goes without saying, don’t reflect this country’s diversity. In fact, only 7 percent of films had a cast that accurately reflected the gender and racial makeup of the U.S. Factor in the apoplectic strain of fan entitlement that arises every time a female or non-white actor is considered for a role that previously belonged to a white male, and the systemic nature of it all becomes clear.

On Twitter over the weekend, writer Brian J. White decided to envision an alternate Hollywood, one where some of our most iconic film and TV properties were cast without any straight, white men.

This is fun. Guys, recast ...

Susan Sarandon joins Ray Donovan cast for season 5

Following her stellar performance as Bette Davis on FX’s Feud, Oscar winner Susan Sarandon will be making another trip into the world of TV. The iconic actress has signed on to join the cast of Showtime’s hit series Ray Donovan for its forthcoming fifth season.

According to Showtime (via The Wrap), Sarandon will play the recurring role of Samantha Winslow, a strong and focused motion picture studio head. It remains to be seen how Winslow’s path will cross with the titular character, but one would assume that Donovan, a professional fixer for rich and famous Los Angeles residents, will probably end up doing a job for her.

While primarily known for her work in such films as Thelma & Louise, Dead Man Walking, Stepmom, Arbitrage, Tammy and more, Sarandon is far from inexperienced when it comes to TV. Over the course of her career, Sarandon has popped up
