‘Black-ish’ Creator Kenya Barris No Longer Sure He’d Want Kanye West to Guest Star

‘Black-ish’ Creator Kenya Barris No Longer Sure He’d Want Kanye West to Guest Star
If you asked “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris a year ago who his dream guest star for the ABC sitcom would be, Kanye West would be at the top of his wishlist. Now, his answer would be a little different.

“I still love him, but it’s … different,” Barris said of the rapper, who has drawn controversy over the last few months for inflammatory comments regarding slavery and president Donald Trump.

While the sitcom featuring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross has had a slew of cameos over the course of four seasons, Barris still has some guest stars he’d

The Five Best Luke Evans Movies of His Career

Luke Evans is someone that doesn’t seem to get enough credit for what he does at times, since quite honestly the guy has been in some great roles that somehow get overlooked too often. In his roles as the villain he’s just flat out dark and decidedly vicious, while in his role as the hero he’s dashing, charming, and yet also kind of dark in his ways despite the fact that he can play such a role rather well. In some ways he’s the anti-hero type that doesn’t always do the right thing but has best of intentions in mind

Cancellation Buzz: 5 Series in Trouble

Cancellation Buzz: 5 Series in Trouble
The 2018-19 TV season has yet to yield a smash on par with, say, This Is Us or Roseanne, but a number of freshman series — including NBC’s Manifest, ABC’s The Conners, Fox’s Last Man Standing and CBSThe Neighborhood — have attained hit-adjacent status. Even a number of modestly-performing rookies — such as God Friended Me (CBS), The Kids Are Alright (ABC) and All American (The CW) — have shown enough early promise to snag additional-episode orders.

Heck, even the outright duds (like Fox’s Rel) remain on the air — although the cancellation clock ticks louder with each passing week.
