Eventually when he was old enough he joined the Us Army and made a reputation for himself in the service until he went into acting. Looking at him now you might not think he’d be the epitome of what a tough guy would really look like, but back then and

The Best TV Performances of 2018

The Best TV Performances of 2018
Actors and actresses are an oft-celebrated aspect of popular culture. They play the characters viewers identify with, rage against, or otherwise become emotionally tied to, and then they show up on “Busy Tonight” to play with a puppy or snap an Instagram picture calling out Hollywood’s double standards. In other words, they make a connection with their audience that needs to continue.

But their work can transcend that relationship, as well. Certain performances require recognition for their continued, intricate development (which often happens in TV), how they break from expectations, or when a new actor shows up and forms a fresh, unshakable bond. In 2018, a slew of actors did all of this and more. Some well-known faces forged exciting new aspects of their onscreen identity. Other newbies stole the show from their more experienced peers. Still more performers put out work fans didn’t expect or couldn’t get enough of.

‘Into the Dark’: Hulu’s Insane Holiday Horror Movie Helps Explain America’s Mascot Fixation

When the Philadelphia Flyers officially unveiled the team’s new mascot in September, the googly-eyed orange monster quickly became one of Twitter’s fiercest obsessions. Now, more than three months later, the creature known as “Gritty” has launched a thousand memes and the social media phenom shows no signs of stopping. (He just graced the cover of Artforum’s year-end issue.)

The internet’s collective interest seems driven by a series of unanswerable questions: Where did he come from? Was he born or made? Does Gritty actually ascribe to gendered pronouns? Was he born in the sewers under a hockey stadium? What is Gritty? Despite a cyclone of reporting on the mascot — some serious, some very serious — his genesis remains a thing of legend. However, the most recent installment of Hulu’s “Into the Dark” series may offer some much-needed answers.

“Pooka” is not a Gritty biopic; it was conceived,

Marlon Brando is a legend and was so when he was still alive. Despite passing away in 2004 he’s still very much the iconic figure that a lot of people still look up to and try to emulate more often than not in various ways. He was something of a mimic in his own right as he started this habit when he was a young child and developed it into something that would help him out later in life as an actor. Marlon didn’t have a very satisfying home life as his mother was an alcoholic and his father didn’t

The Top 20 TV Episodes of 2018
This year provided TV fans with one of the most promising pilots in years (“Barry”) and an all-time-great series finale (that of “The Americans”), but there was plenty in between, too. The following are 20 of Variety’s critics’ favorite episodes to have aired all year, across genres. Of note: while episodes of “Atlanta,” “Barry,” “BoJack Horseman,” and “Glow” exist on generic boundary lines — technically comedies that are, at many moments in these episodes, sadder than they are funny — there are still plenty of straight-up laughs represented, either as tonic for a dark year outside the tube or just acknowledgment that
