Amy Schumer Won’t Appear in Super Bowl Ads to Support Colin Kaepernick
Following reports that Rihanna passed on the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in a show of solidarity to Colin Kaepernick, Amy Schumer said Friday that she informed her agent to turn down any commercial jobs connected to the February 2019 game.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Schumer also called on Maroon 5, who will headline the Super Bowl halftime show from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, to withdraw from the high-profile gig.

"I think it would be cool if [Maroon 5] backed out of Super Bowl like [Rihanna] did," Schumer wrote, the second time Friday she lobbied for Adam Levine and company to ditch the gig.

‘Daredevil’ Season 3 Review: Matt Murdock’s Return Could Hit Harder, but It Represents a Major Improvement
Matt Murdock seems tired but wired, and that may be the best part of “Marvel’s Daredevil” Season 3, which represents a recovery — of sorts — for the series that initially launched the Netflix/Marvel universe.

It’s strange to remember the intense anticipation around “Daredevil” Season 1. While at that time there were no shortage of shows featuring superheroes on television, including “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” and Greg Berlanti’s ever-expanding empire of CW/DC adaptations, “Daredevil” promised to be the gritty, grown-up version — then-showrunner Steven S. DeKnight said the inspiration was “to lean more towards ‘The Wire’ than ‘Smallville.'”

After more than three years years and five additional new spinoffs of varying quality, though, the feelings inspired by the launch of a new Netflix/Marvel series might lean more towards exhaustion than excitement. After all, this is the fourth new Marvel launch of the year from this universe, coming

Eight Memorable Pairs of Twins from Movies

I’ve often wondered what it must be like to have a twin, especially an identical one. You could see how clothes would look on you before trying them on, or what a hairstyle might look like, too. Even better, maybe you’d have some sort of link – either physical or mental – to that twin, as many twins claim to have. Twins appear in movies quite a bit, but every pair is different from other pairs. For the purposes of this article, I’m only using twins that were played by two separate actors, regardless of whether those actors were actually

The Bold and the Beautiful Best Female Character Transformations

The Bold and the Beautiful fans are always looking to see if anyone has changed more than others, and there are some characters who cannot seem to make their life work as one person. They have to come back and reinvent themselves as someone else. They might just have a change of heart. They might just have a situation in which they don’t know what else to do other than sit back and act like they have it all under control. They might not know what to do otherwise. They might just have some situations where they cannot get their

‘The Woman in White’ on PBS Review: The BBC Turns a Familiar Mystery Into an Enraging Feminist Indictment

The BBC-produced “The Woman in White,” premiering on PBS’ “Masterpiece,” turns the oft-adapted Wilkie Collins novel into a five-hour miniseries and creates the most feminist version to date. Set in Victorian England, the gothic tale examines the twisted circumstances surrounding the arranged marriage between young heiress Laura Fairlie (Olivia Vinall) and the much older Sir Percival Glyde (Dougray Scott). She and her half-sister Marian Halcombe (Jessie Buckley) become embroiled in a grand conspiracy that also involves a mentally ill woman dressed in white. Despite its period setting, the dangerous consequences of gender inequality make this story disturbingly relevant.

The update comes from writer Fiona Seres, who reteams with “Masterpiece” after adapting “The Lady Vanishes” in 2013 from the Ethel Lina White novel that also produced Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1938 film. Like that project, “The Woman in White” explores the frustrations of a society that doesn’t listen to women or believe in their peril.

10 Memorable Bathroom Scenes in Movies

Some of the most classic scenes in movies take place in a very private and sacred room for most of us: the bathroom. In my eyes, a bathroom immediately adds a comedic element. For some reason when a person is speaking to me from a bathroom I always tend to grin. I guess it’s just funny associating someone having a real conversation while doing their business. I mean, even just using the word “John” is funny if you ask me. P.S. ever why a bathroom is called the John? This is a very interesting piece on it. On the other

Young and the Restless’ Best Female Character Transformations

Young and the Restless fans have seen a lot of people come and go. We’ve seen a lot of characters that have been around for a long time and then gone away for a long time. Some have come back.

Their dire and ugly circumstances left them feeling like they don’t have much else to do other than sit back and really get to the point of what is going on in their lives. They don’t have much else to deal with other than the

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Saffron Burrows

Saffron Burrows is someone that you like to see since she brings a bit of class and style to any program or movie she’s in, but sometimes her acting ability isn’t always up to par when it comes to the role she’s playing. It’s not that she doesn’t have the skill, it’s more or less the role that she’s been put in doesn’t really conform to her talents and therefore comes off as kind of stiff. She’s definitely got the skill and the acting experience to pull off a lot of different roles, but unlike a few others in the

The Five Best Vampire Movies of the 80s

Vampire movies in the 80s still meant big hair, kind of outrageous clothing, and a kind of punk rock or very gothic feel that was leading into the 90s and would eventually become something more classy in nature and less punk. But as far as the 80s went a lot of things were in a transitory phase that was a bit hard to figure out at times. Vampires were no different as they were coming off being the cold and dead-eyed, ravenous beings that sought to charm their prey and were becoming far more feral and likened to wild animals

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Stars on the Netflix Show’s Feminist Themes

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Stars on the Netflix Show’s Feminist Themes
If she had to sum up her titular character in “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” star Kiernan Shipka would describe Sabrina Spellman as a “woke witch.”

The series, which premieres Oct. 26 on Netflix, is a reimagining of the famous teen witch’s story that has overt feminist themes. On the show, Sabrina is a half-witch half-mortal and becomes the first to question the male figures who rule the witches’ world, which leads to her reluctance to sign a pact to renounce the mortal world and embrace her magical side.

“This is totally the Sabrina for 2018, in so many ways. She’s a woke witch,

Appreciating the Storied Career of Marion Ross

Any woman that’s ever played the role of a TV mom has likely gained some attention with fans since their roles have changed greatly over the course of the last several decades. Marion Ross was one of those that played such a role with great skill and kept to the times it would seem since she played none other than Marion Cunningham on Happy Days. She did have many other roles aside from this but as many people would claim, and rightfully so, she’s gone down in the hall of fame as far as fans are concerned when it comes

Amazon’s Jennifer Salke Defends Broadcast, Touts Upcoming Projects
Despite her recent career choices, Jennifer Salke is still a believer in broadcast.

“I don’t think that it’s on its deathbed,” Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said at a USC summit. “I think it is evolving quickly. But I still believe, knowing the amount of people we were reaching at NBC, that there’s a huge audience that still comes” to broadcast.

The Five Best George Clooney Movies of His Career

George Clooney might be a man’s man to some folks and it’s not an invalid comment to be honest since he’s suave, charming, has just the right amount of wit, and he can star in action films if they’re designed for him. But quite honestly he’s more about drama and witty comebacks and performs a lot better when he has the kind of material that allows him to be the guy that you look to for a stirring performance that’s meant to make people feel for his character and possibly laugh with him. Action isn’t his biggest forte but at

The Best Uses of Nirvana Songs in Movies or TV

There’s a lot that can be said about Nirvana and woe to the person that decides to dish or diss them to their diehard fans because it wouldn’t go well. In the 90s they were The band that everyone wanted to be fans of and they were a movement unto themselves that helped grunge to really kick into high gear and become something that would be remembered for years to come. Plus their music, disturbing as the lyrics might have been sometimes, were the kind of stuff that you couldn’t get out of your head and would find yourself singing
