Homecoming: Julia Roberts Not Returning as Star of Season 2
Julia Roberts‘ days as Homecoming case worker Heidi Bergman are behind her: The Golden Globe nominee will not return as star of Season 2, TVLine can now confirm (and in doing so reveal this “A-list” Blind Item from August).

Roberts will remain on board as an executive producer alongside showrunner Sam Esmail — and the possibility of a guest appearance has not been ruled out. Be that as it may, the second season is expected to deviate wildly from the podcast on which it is based. It is unknown who, if anyone from the TV show’s Season 1 cast — including Stephan James,

Trump's Third State of the Union Address Might Not Be Televised, Due to Government Shutdown

President Donald Trump’s third State of the Union address, scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 29, will be delivered in writing and not televised — or rescheduled for a later date — due to security concerns caused by the partial U.S. government shutdown, which is now in its 26th day.

“During the 19th Century and up until the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, [SOTUs] were delivered to Congress in writing,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wrote on Wednesday in a letter to the president. “And since the start of modern budgeting in Fiscal Year 10977, a State of the Union address has never been delivered during a government shutdown.

The Five Best Billy Crystal Movies of His Career

Comedy is what Billy Crystal seems to be made for and it’s what has sustained him for the length of his career to this point. While some people don’t care for his brand of comedy many have loved it for years and continue to love seeing him light up the screen, be it big or small. Along with his strong New Yorker accent he also has a great deal of material that seems kind of snide at times and deprecating at others no matter if the humor is turned inward or focused on someone else. The whole point of his

‘Metro Exodus’ Author On Film, Possible TV Series, Expansive New Game

Since the launch of the post-apocalyptic survival first-person shooter “Metro 2033” in 2010, the series has kept its action confined to the tunnels running underneath Russia. “Metro Exodus,” due out next month, takes the gameplay to the surface for the first time, going above ground with sprawling levels against a changing backdrop of weather conditions and seasons. Variety was able to play a couple of these environments at an event in London earlier this month, and after several hours exploring the icy Volga riverbanks and sunny Caspian desert, it’s safe to say that this approach does make the game feel less confined and linear,

20/20 Hindsight: The Best Movies of 1995

1995 always struck me as an odd year for movies, and I have never really been able to articulate why exactly that is. Caught in the intersection of the good (or at least the interesting) Hellraiser movies and John Carpenter’s Apocalypse trilogy, we got a rare outpouring of Lovecraftian horror movies that, if not exactly great, were incredibly compelling. We got the start of Pixar’s unbroken run of critical hits, the first in Richard Linklater’s long-running Before trilogy, the first of David Fincher’s dark thrillers and both the first and last moment that Bryan Singer could be unequivocally called good.

The monocle-wearing Mr. Peanut is about to offer snack fans an entirely new lens on Super Bowl advertising.

Aliens officially became the new vampires on Tuesday with the premiere of Roswell, New Mexico, The CW’s timely adaptation of Melinda Metz’s books about smoldering extraterrestrials and the humans who love them.

The (sort of) reboot’s first episode introduced viewers to Liz Ortecho, who reluctantly returned to her hometown when the government cut federal funding to her latest research project. (“Someone needs money for a wall,” she explained.) Given that her father is undocumented, Liz was understandably on edge when she encountered an Ice checkpoint on her way back into town, though her mood improved considerably when she spotted Max Evans,
