Amy Schumer Won’t Appear in Super Bowl Ads to Support Colin Kaepernick

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

Amazon’s Jennifer Salke Defends Broadcast, Touts Upcoming Projects

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.

Salke noted the competition that broadcast now faces from streaming services and the bevy of other entertainment options targeting the traditional broadcast viewer. “It’s incredibly difficult, but there are really smart writers and producers working

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

Charmed Boss: Can Harry Be Trusted? And Who Are the Sisters' Fathers?

Charmed is wasting no time getting to bottom of one of its biggest mysteries: Just how trustworthy is the sisters’ Whitelighter? Macy, Mel and Maggie were warned to keep their distance at the end of last week’s series premiere, but executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman tells TVLine not to jump to any conclusions just yet.

“We dive right into that in the next episode,” she says of Sunday’s second hour (The CW, 9/8c). “You’ll find out whether he can be trusted or not, and you’ll find out who that message really came from.” Until then,

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

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Aldis Hodge

It takes a lot of drive to be an actor and to maintain that position as Aldis Hodge knows. In fact he happens to enjoy the pressures that come with the job and knows that in order to get better one has to move into those pressures and through them if they hope to succeed at all.

Supergirl's Melissa Benoist: Season 4 Opts for Empowerment Over Romance

Sorry, eligible bachelors of National City, but Kara Danvers won’t be swiping right anytime soon. Supergirl‘s fourth season, which continues Sunday (The CW, 8/7c), reinforces the idea that “you can find empowerment in many different avenues of life,” star Melissa Benoist tells TVLine, confirming that there’s “not much” romance coming up for the Girl of Steel.

“It’s not that I don’t think there should be any,” she explains, “but I like seeing a woman fending for herself and not thinking about [romance]. If it falls into her lap, great.”

Ranking the Best Songs from Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star is Born’

If you’ve already seen A Star Is Born (2018), or even just listened to its album on iTunes, you know that it has some of the most spectacularly show-stopping music of any movie in years. I’m not even a country fan and even I walked out of the theater with visions of chicken-fried stardom dancing in my head. Maybe one of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies or Baby Driver (2017) could give it a run for its money, but that’s really about it. The movie is such an embarrassment of riches when it comes to its soundtrack

‘My Dinner With Hervé’ Review: Peter Dinklage’s Bland HBO Biopic Never Justifies Breaking Bread With Two Bad Men

‘My Dinner With Hervé’ Review: Peter Dinklage’s Bland HBO Biopic Never Justifies Breaking Bread With Two Bad Men
Hervé Villechaize, the artist best known for playing Nick Nack in “The Man With the Golden Gun” and Tattoo on the TV show “Fantasy Island,” may have been a decent man. With just a rudimentary bit of research, one can see that Villechaize worked extensively with troubled children, helping abuse victims cope with tragedy and speaking with depressed teenagers about suicide. Certainly as a performer, the famous dwarf knew how to entertain the masses, even going so far as to play Oscar the Grouch on “Sesame Street.”

To its credit, “My Dinner With Hervé” doesn’t embellish these details to create an overly rosy interpretation of a troubled man. But to its pressing detriment, the new HBO biopic downplays any empathetic characteristics whatsoever, to the point where viewers may wonder why this actor was notable at all. Sure, he was famous for a spell, but in a movie that damns

‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls’ Is a Proto-Potter Fantasy That’s Better than the Recent Harry Potter Movies

Ever since Harry Potter first hit the movie scene, and especially since it left, studio executives have been scrambling for the next big thing in youth fantasy movies. For a while it was sort-of subsumed by the Hunger Games movies, and later by its imitators, but nothing ever quite filled that same, hungering niche of witchcraft and wizardry that left a gaping, lightning scar-shaped whole in audiences hearts since the last lingering chord of John Williams’ iconic score died out all the way back in 2011. Maybe that’s why they couldn’t stop themselves from making all of those insufferable prequels.

‘Will & Grace’ Co-Creator Doesn’t Want to See Tim Allen Get Political on ‘Last Man Standing’

‘Will & Grace’ Co-Creator Doesn’t Want to See Tim Allen Get Political on ‘Last Man Standing’
“Will and Grace” is no stranger to politics – its latest season features discussions about immigration, President Trump and a host of other topics – but that doesn’t mean show co-creator Max Mutchnick thinks every show should follow suit.

“It depends on the tone – everything is about tone – and our characters are able to talk about what they want to talk about because of the way they were initially built, so it really depends,” Mutchnick told Variety at Friday’s annual Glsen Respect Awards held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. “I want to hear the cast of ‘Will & Grace’ talk,

10 Great Movies That Feature Gigantic Animals Killing People

As far as I’m concerned, movies that feature enormous animals eating, dismembering, eviscerating, disembowling or otherwise destroying human beings is a recipe for success. And I’m talking big, super dangerous animals here, so take your Birds and Bats and Snakes on a Plane and shove ’em. Not all movies with this formula are mindless — anyone who’s read Moby Dick can tell you that the story runs much deeper than the quest to kill a whale — but even the cruddiest movies where oversized animals treat people like Rosie O’Donnell treats french fries is worth watching. After the jump, take
