What the Forky? New ‘Toy Story 4’ Character Explained

What the Forky? New ‘Toy Story 4’ Character Explained
Leave it to “Toy Story” to grapple with the big questions in life. Why are we here? Why are we alive? What is life about? And who — or what — is Forky?

That’s the question confusing many online after Disney and Pixar released the first teaser for “Toy Story 4.” The trailer features the toys prancing in a slow motion circle to the tune of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now,” only for a spork with googly eyes and red pipe cleaners (as voiced by “Veep’s” Tony Hale) to shriek in terror, “I don’t belong here.”

Because Forky may not be a “toy.” Director Josh Cooley explains in the announcement for the teaser that he is an actual spork-turned-craft-project. And though Bonnie, the new young girl and owner of all of Andy’s old toys, plays with Forky as though he were one, he feels he doesn’t belong.

‘Bachelor’ Mansion Remains “Unscathed” By California Wildfires – Update
Update Sunday, 5:27 p.m.: After the fate of the Agoura Hills mansion that plays host to the Bachelor and Bachelorette was in question, it is safe to say that the mansions have not burned down despite their proximity to the fire.

The mansion seems to be intact and unharmed by the fires according to a tweet from USA Today’s Chris Woodyard. The tweet includes a photo of him and the mansion which shows no signs of damage.

“The house from ABC’s The Bachelor survived the fire unscathed,” he wrote. However, he said: “House next door burned to the ground.”

The news comes a day after Mike Fleiss, the creator and executive producer of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette tweeted: “I still don’t know exactly what condition #TheBachelor Mansion is in. But I do know that the beautiful community of Malibu — and the surrounding areas— are struggling. Good thoughts for all…

Douglas Rain, Voice of Hal 9000 in ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,’ Dies at 90
Douglas Rain, who voiced the soft-spoken Hal 9000 robot that went rogue in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” has died. He was 90.

The Stratford Festival, which Rain, who was a dedicated Shakespearean actor, co-founded in 1952, said that Rain had died of natural causes in Stratford, Ont. in Canada.

The festival said Rain performed at the festival for more than 45 years.

“Canadian theatre has lost one of its greatest talents and a guiding light in its development,” the festival’s artistic director, Antoni Cimolino, said in a press release Sunday, according to CTV.

“Douglas Rain was that rare artist: an actor deeply admired by other actors.”

Rain was born in Winnipeg, Man. in 1928, studied at the Old Vic in London, and performed at theaters and festival across Canada. He received a Tony nomination in 1972 for his role in Robert Bolt’s production of “Vivat! Vivat! Regina!”

Ennio Morricone Denies Making ‘Hateful’ Quentin Tarantino Comments, Threatens to Sue Playboy Germany
Ennio Morricone has denied participating in an interview with Playboy Germany magazine in which he was quoted as saying Quentin Tarantino was a “cretin,” who made nothing but “trash” films.

“This is totally false,” the 90 year-old composer said in a statement released Sunday. “I have not given an interview to Playboy Germany and even more, I have never called Tarantino a cretin and certainly do not consider his films garbage. I have given a mandate to my lawyer in Italy to take civil and penal action.”

Morricone, who won an Oscar for composing Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” was quoted in the December issue of the German-language magazine as saying Tarantino was a “chaotic” director on set and lacked originality.

But Morricone claims the remarks were a fabrication.

“In London, during a press conference in front of Tarantino, i clearly stated that I consider Quentin one of the greatest directors of this time.

‘SNL’ Alum Luke Null on His Single Season on Show: ‘Lowest Man on the Totem Pole’
Luke Null may have had a short-lived tenure on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” lasting just one season. But it wasn’t for a lack of trying to get screen time.

“I was getting cut at dress rehearsal. No one gets to see or hear about that,” Null told Vulture. “So it was hard to leave and not think I didn’t get much of an at bat.” Null was part of the Season 43 cast, but appeared only sparingly. When he was hired, Null thought he’d get to do some musical stuff, since that’s what he auditioned with.

And though he says he tried over and over to get a chance to showcase his guitar skills, a la Adam Sandler on “Weekend Update” he could never make it past dress rehearsal. “I have to absolutely be one of the best people to pitch that week, but a lot

Trumpism Is Racism, So Things Will Get Worse

November 6th was a bad night for President Trump, no matter what he says. He now has to deal with a newly empowered opposition party with a mandate to check his myriad abuses and scandals. The rebuke wasn’t as harsh as it needed to be, though.

Trumpism, which is essentially short for “espousing racism,” continued to score well with the president’s base. Paired with the flaws in our democracy that help maintain white political power, it diluted a Democratic victory that should have been more absolute. Trumpism likely

‘This Is Us': Chrissy Metz Says Kate’s Pregnancy Leads to Twist You Haven’t Seen on Network TV
(Warning: This post contains spoilers through last week’s episode of “This Is Us.”)

After “This Is Us” tormented fans with difficult IVF treatments and a devastating miscarriage, it seems Kate is finally having Toby’s baby. And though pregnancies are strictly joyous life events for some small-screen families, nothing is that easy for the Pearson family. Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate, says she and Chris Sullivan (Toby) are about to show America something they have never seen before with this baby — at least on network TV.

“Toby and Kate are going to have a bit of an unconventional parenting situation,” Metz told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview. “Not unconventional in that people aren’t doing it, but not what I think either of them ever had in mind.”
