Jussie Smollett Returns To ‘Empire’ Set After Bail Hearing
Jussie Smollett, the Empire star who was arrested Thursday on a felony charge in the wake of allegedly planning a January attack on himself, went directly to the Fox series’ Chicago set after his bail hearing this afternoon, Deadline has confirmed.

Smollett was released on $100,000 bail and had his passport revoked during the court appearance. His defense lawyers insisted during the hearing that Smollett needed to get back to work on Empire, which was continuing production today.

What he will do there — today, or going forward — remains unclear. Smollett’s upcoming scenes on Empire were reduced or cut amid the investigation, so it’s not clear if he will get back in front of the camera anytime soon. Producer 20th Century Fox TV and Fox Entertainment issued a statement today saying “We understand the seriousness of this matter and we respect the legal process. We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options.

Why Sex and the City Wasn't Supposed to End the Way It Did and Other Secrets About the HBO Hit's Finale That You Probably Forgot
We couldn't help but wonder, is everyone else freaking out over the fact that it's been 15 years since Sex and the City aired its last new episode? In the decade and a half since Big went to Paris to get our girl Carrie Bradshaw in the series finale of the groundbreaking HBO comedy, there's been no shortage of Satc content. We're talking, of course, about the two feature films—one, a hit; the other, less so—and, perhaps more importantly, the drama surrounding the reason why we'll never, ever get a third one. And while the real-life feuding amongst the women who played one of TV's most iconic friend quartets would have Carrie and Samantha shaking their heads, the fact that not everyone got...

Tilda Swinton's New Film Features a Very Important Costar: Her Daughter!
When The Souvenir debuted at Sundance in January, it took home the top prize in the dramatic film category.

But the real twist is a small fact hidden in the cast list: the film stars Tilda Swinton and her real-life daughter, Honor Swinton Byrne. Even the trailer's short glimpse of the film proves the young actress is already a force to be reckoned with, and she's clearly following in her mother's footsteps. We can't wait to see their chemistry come to life on the big screen. The Souvenir drops on May 17.

  • Popsugar
Netflix has really cemented itself as a home of horror masterpieces lately. Between its large collection of classic horror and thriller movies, as well as original films like Hush, The Ritual, and Gerald's Game, the streaming platform never runs out of terrifying options.
