"Castle Rock" Season 2 to Pay Homage to ‘Misery’ with Lizzy Caplan as Annie Wilkes

Season 1 of Hulu's Castle Rock was a treasure trove of homages, Easter eggs, and story crossovers for fans of horror icon Stephen King. Season 2 looks to continue that trend by taking on Misery, King's 1987 psychological horror novel that centered on nurse Annie Wilkes and her deadly obsession with romance novelist, Paul Sheldon. Kathy Bates earned an Oscar for her performance as Wilkes in Rob Reiner's 1990 feature adaptation of the story, but now Emmy-nominee Lizzy Caplan gets a shot at the role.

Laura Ingraham Attacks ‘Little Journo Terrorists’ Hired to Teach at NYU (Video)

Laura Ingraham Attacks ‘Little Journo Terrorists’ Hired to Teach at NYU (Video)
Laura Ingraham offered fire and fury on her Fox News show “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday, blasting a decision by NYU to hire liberal Twitter writers Talia Lavin and Lauren Duca to teach journalism courses during the Fall 2019 semester.

“They want to circumscribe speech. They want to take players off the field altogether. So she’s just a hit gal. She’s another Media Matters, they don’t want to argue. They don’t want to win the debate. They want to search and destroy. That’s what they do,” Ingraham said during an interview with conservative author Dinesh D’Souza.

“That’s why Fox viewers are so loyal to this network because we refuse to bow. We refuse to cave in to these kind of terroristic tactics and that’s what they are. They’re little journo terrorists,” she added.

We Finally Got the Blooper Reel From Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Favorite ‘Veep’ Scene (Video)

We Finally Got the Blooper Reel From Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Favorite ‘Veep’ Scene (Video)
Sorry, Jimmy KimmelJulia Louis-Dreyfus saved the blooper reel from her favorite-ever “Veep” scene for the other Jimmy, Fallon. Or probably it just worked out that way.

On Thursday, the “Seinfeld” alum brought “The Tonight Show” outtakes from a classic and intimate Season 6 moment her character Selina Meyer shared with co-star Tony Hale’s Gary Walsh.

“I brought it as a gift,” Louis-Dreyfus told her latest late-night host. “Merry Christmas.”

In the clip, Meyer is uncharacteristically caring for Walsh after his heart attack, which followed her own heart attack earlier in the episode. In a rare moment of affection, Meyer makes a meal for Walsh, who is recovering in her basement. Unfortunately, the food — much like Gary and Selina earlier — has taken a turn for the worst.

Texas Truck Driver-Songwriter Will Beeley Resurfaces With ‘U.S. 85’

Texas Truck Driver-Songwriter Will Beeley Resurfaces With ‘U.S. 85’
Will Beeley comes to the end of the line on his ghostly new road song “U.S. 85,” from his upcoming LP Highways & Heart Attacks. It’s the Texas singer-songwriter’s first new recording in 40 years.

To say Beeley’s new album has been four decades in the making would be something of an overstatement. After releasing a pair of albums in the Seventies, 1971’s Gallivantin‘ and 1979’s all-too-appropriately-titled Passing Dream, the San Antonio native — having a young family to support — hung up his guitar and took up the life of a long-haul trucker.

Bob Greenblatt Pays Tribute to Eunetta Boone: ‘Love Just Radiated From Her’

Eunetta T. Boone was funny, sharp and extremely warm-hearted. That’s how WarnerMedia Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt remembered Boone as he paid tribute to the showrunner who died Wednesday at the age of 63.

Greenblatt worked with Boone in the early 2000s when he was partnered with David Janollari in the Greenblatt-Janollari Studio production venture. Greenblatt-Janollari was the banner behind Boone’s Upn comedy “One on One,” starring Kyla Pratt and Flex Alexander, and the spinoff “Cuts.”

One on One” ran for five seasons, from 2001 to 2006, making it one of the longest-lived series that Greenblatt-Janollari Studio produced during the banner’s 1997-2003 run.

Watch Jenny Lewis Dazzle ‘Kimmel’ With ‘Red Bull and Hennessy,’ ‘Wasted Youth’
Jenny Lewis brought some classic country flare to Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, performing two new songs “Red Bull and Hennessy” and “Wasted Youth.”

Strapped with an acoustic guitar painted pink and blue, Lewis moved through the smoldering “Red Bull and Hennessy,” which captures the peaks of desire in a new relationship, then the ways they slowly disintegrate. “I’m on fire, c’mon and get next to me/I wanna ride with you,” Lewis sang before her guitarist launched into a mesmerizing closing solo.

Lewis then hopped behind an equally well-decorated piano for “Wasted Youth,

Trump Derides Fox Business Anchor Maria Bartiromo as ‘Fake News’ Over John McCain Questions
Donald Trump chided Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo as “fake news” over her repeated questions about John McCain and why the president continued to attack the late senator.

“I didn’t mention John McCain until you asked me a question about John McCain,” a visibly annoyed Trump said in an interview broadcast on Friday. “I could say I have no comment but that’s not me. But you shouldn’t have brought it up. Actually, I thought you weren’t suppose to bring it up but that’s Ok. Fake news, every once and a while.”

“It’s not fake news,” Bartiromo pushed back. “You just told me why you have an issue with him. It’s real news.”

Fact-Checking Mötley Crüe’s Netflix Movie ‘The Dirt’

Fact-Checking Mötley Crüe’s Netflix Movie ‘The Dirt’
In many ways, fact-checking a movie about Mötley Crüe is a ridiculous task, especially a film that says right off the bat it is merely “based” on a true story. It’s also a film that breaks the fourth wall and tells the audience that things didn’t happen quite as they’re being presented. The whole thing is also based on a book that bassist Nikki Sixx now claims has at least one story – in which he writes that he “pretty much” raped a woman – was “possibly greatly embellished or made up.

“Legacy” boasts a beat of gauzy synths that swirl around relentless trap drums, providing the perfect backdrop for Offset and Scott’s woozy, auto-tuned bars. In front of a wall of flashing lights, the pair delivered their verses – ad libs and all – with breathless ease, Offset spitting, “I’m from the bando, my daddy had abandoned me/Momma tried to cover up and bandage me/I’m the first one to lead the whole legacy.

Every Music Company is Morphing into the Same Thing

The music industry has longed thrived on its diversity. A rich assortment of hip-hop, rock, country, R&B, classical, indie, electronic, and a million and one subgenres in between.

“A rich assortment,” however, comprehensively fails to describe today’s most influential music companies — which are increasingly eating into one another’s core businesses in a bid to grow their prosperity. At the center of this trend are those music-streaming services “doing a Netflix,” i.e., investing money into independent artists to create their own content outside the traditional record-company structure.
