Gillian Anderson Set To Join ‘The Crown’ Season Four As Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
Gillian Anderson is set to star as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the fourth season of The Crown.

The X-Files star has been signed up to play the Iron Lady, although viewers will likely have to wait more than a year to see her on screens as the third season of the Left Bank drama has yet to air.

The third season of the Netflix drama, which will air this year, will see Olivia Colman replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and Tobias Menzies replacing Matt Smith as Prince Philip. Elsewhere, Ben Daniels will play Antony Armstrong-Jones, starring alongside Helena Bonham Carter’s Princess Margaret. It begins in 1963 and will cover events such as the rise of the Beatles and England winning the soccer World Cup in 1966. Characters such as Camilla Parker Bowles, Call the Midwife‘s Emerald Fennell, will also start to emerge in the next season.

‘SNL’: Leslie Jones Takes The Mic In ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Parody

‘SNL’: Leslie Jones Takes The Mic In ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Parody
On the same night that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was collecting the Producers Guild award for top comedy series, the show received a more elusive honor: a parody short on Saturday Night Live.

Rachel Brosnahan hosted the show and appeared as her award-winning title character for the spoof, The Raunchiest Miss Rita, which is set at the smoke-filled Gaslight Cafe. (Watch the clip above or below.)

After a custodian named Rita May Johnson congratulates her on her set, Maisel encourages her to give stand-up a try.”No, not me,” Johnson demurs. “What would I even talk about?” Replies Maisel, now the mentor instead of the up-and-comer. “Just be honest. Say what’s on your mind.”

Cut to Jones-as-Johnson working extremely blue, delivering a string of bawdy jokes revolving around sex. While tentative at the start, uncertain how the downtown (and distinctly white) crowd will react, she quickly gets validation from the adoring roars of laughter.

Why must everyone make horrible decisions that affect everyone else and never make any sense? And why does everyone have to hurt everyone else?

Chinese Entertainment Industry Braces for a ‘Cold Winter’ in 2019

Winter is here for the Chinese entertainment industry, a half-dozen top-tier industry professionals concurred in Beijing at the launch last week of Tencent Entertainment’s annual data-filled white paper.

China’s box office hit new heights in 2018, raking in about $9 billion, but it was also a year of drastic regulatory changes and a government tax crackdown that have spooked investors and put projects across the country on hold.

“Why call this period a ‘cold winter’? In 2018, 20 film and TV companies saw RMB160 billion of stock market value evaporate, while eight saw their valuation fall by more than 50%. The departure of

Showtime's Black Monday: Grade It!

Feeling a little nostalgic for the shoulder-padded days of the 1980s? Fortunately, Showtime’s Wall Street satire Black Monday has arrived to fill the perm-sized hole in your heart.

Created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (Marry Me), the half-hour comedy made its debut on Sunday night — though the subject matter at its heart is no laughing matter. Black Monday chronicles the (fictional) events leading up to Oct. 19, 1987, otherwise known as the day of the (non-fictional) worst stock market crash in Wall Street’s history, which gave the show its title.

‘True Detective’ Review: Episode 3 Shows Why Relationships Matter More Than the Case
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “True Detective” Season 3, Episode 3, “The Big Never.”]

Hoo boy, a whole lot happened in “True Detective” this week! Turns out the Purcell kids didn’t go over to Ronnie’s house as many times as they say they did — so who were they seeing? The evidence in William’s recovered backpack points to an adult — who else would buy all those toys for him? How does the communion photo figure into all this, given Will’s body was left in a similar, praying pose after his death? And what about the dice, the bloody rocks, and the house near the suspected murder site? Speaking of the woods, what did Wayne (Mahershala Ali) leave in the woods? Amelia’s ghost seems to think he’s covering something up, so it’s not just the aging detective’s deteriorating memory that’s holding up the investigation. Plus, now there’s a mysterious

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Providence,” the 12th episode of “Outlander” Season 4.

There were two competing narratives on “Outlander” this week — one that was largely invented for the show but was a very clever way to keep a certain character involved, and another that was also changed a bit from the novel, causing it to feel like a shameless play at the viewers’ emotions. Let’s dig into the clever one first.

In Wilmington, Fergus (Cesar Domboy) informed the Regulators of Murtagh’s (Duncan Lacroix) capture by the Red Coats. They quickly realized that

The Best Uses of Bread Songs in Movies or TV

After reading about them the band known as Bread didn’t seem to be among those that were meant to be together for a long time thanks to the fits and spurts that the band actually stayed as a cohesive unit. Their name came from the fact that two of the founding members were sitting behind a bread truck in traffic at one time, which isn’t too bad considering how so many other bands have gotten their names over the years. But after hitting the charts and climbing to a respectable position they ended up breaking up only to reunite a
