Gillian Anderson Set To Join ‘The Crown’ Season Four As Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

Gillian Anderson Set To Join ‘The Crown’ Season Four As Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
Gillian Anderson is set to star as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the fourth season of The Crown.

The X-Files star has been signed up to play the Iron Lady, although viewers will likely have to wait more than a year to see her on screens as the third season of the Left Bank drama has yet to air.

The third season of the Netflix drama, which will air this year, will see Olivia Colman replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and Tobias Menzies replacing Matt Smith as Prince Philip. Elsewhere, Ben Daniels will play Antony Armstrong-Jones, starring alongside Helena Bonham Carter’s Princess Margaret. It begins in 1963 and will cover events such as the rise of the Beatles and England winning the soccer World Cup in 1966. Characters such as Camilla Parker Bowles, Call the Midwife‘s Emerald Fennell, will also start to emerge in the next season.

‘SNL’: Leslie Jones Takes The Mic In ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Parody

‘SNL’: Leslie Jones Takes The Mic In ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Parody
On the same night that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was collecting the Producers Guild award for top comedy series, the show received a more elusive honor: a parody short on Saturday Night Live.

Rachel Brosnahan hosted the show and appeared as her award-winning title character for the spoof, The Raunchiest Miss Rita, which is set at the smoke-filled Gaslight Cafe. (Watch the clip above or below.)

After a custodian named Rita May Johnson congratulates her on her set, Maisel encourages her to give stand-up a try.”No, not me,” Johnson demurs. “What would I even talk about?” Replies Maisel, now the mentor instead of the up-and-comer. “Just be honest. Say what’s on your mind.”

Cut to Jones-as-Johnson working extremely blue, delivering a string of bawdy jokes revolving around sex. While tentative at the start, uncertain how the downtown (and distinctly white) crowd will react, she quickly gets validation from the adoring roars of laughter.

The Evolution of RuPaul’s Drag Race Since Season 1

RuPaul’s Drag Race, the very successful reality television show, has been on quite a journey since it debuted in 2009. Several changes have occurred but, perhaps the biggest was its actual formatting. The show made the unbelievable switch from Logo to VHI1, their filming quality goes up every year, and even the way they do the season finales have evolved. Seasons 1-3 During these seasons, the queens were eliminated systematically until 3 remained. These three would perform in RuPaul’s music video and the weakest was eliminated. Once it was down to two, the competitors would engage in a lip sync

Ellen Pompeo: 'I Would Love to See Sandra Oh Come Back to Grey's, But... '
Kevin McKidd is not the only Grey’s Anatomy vet relishing Sandra Oh’s career ascension. Oh’s former onscreen Bff, Ellen Pompeo, tells TVLine that she’s so enjoying the actress’ Killing Eve-fueled rise that she would be A-ok if it precluded her from ever returning to Grey’s.

“Selfishly I would love to see Sandra Oh come back to Grey’s,” Pompeo admits. “But I also love Killing Eve so much, and I love seeing her have so many of these incredible moments. So, as much as I love Sandra, I’d rather see her shine out on her own.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Masi Oka

If you don’t know much about Masi Oka that’s quite alright since his celebrity status has been pretty stable for a while and was really cemented when he starred in the TV show Heroes. Since then and before he’s been leading a fairly interesting life since he has plenty of hobbies and intriguing quirks that make him a rather unique person among many.

The Best Uses of Collective Soul Songs in Movies or TV

If anyone remembers back in the early 90s Collective Soul seemed like another band that was trying to take its piece of the grunge act for a little bit but veered off just enough to take their own direction and become something just a little different. The grunge era was something that a lot of people got into and cashed in on but Collective Soul managed to find another way to promote their music and kept to rock thankfully. Their earliest hits were something that seemed a little underwhelming but over time manage to become something that was actually newsworthy

Gillian Anderson Joins ‘The Crown’ as Margaret Thatcher

Gillian Anderson Joins ‘The Crown’ as Margaret Thatcher
Season three of “The Crown” has yet to premiere, but we have some casting news for season four nevertheless: Gillian Anderson will play Margaret Thatcher on the regal Netflix drama. England’s first female Prime Minister was last seen onscreen when Meryl Streep played her in “The Iron Lady,” winning an Academy Award for her efforts; coincidentally, Olivia Colman — who’s taking over for Claire Foy as the Queen herself in the next two seasons — played her daughter in that film.

Other new additions to the cast include Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip (replacing Matt Smith as the timeline moves forward), Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret (previously played by Vanessa Kirby), and Ben Daniels as Antony Armstrong-Jones. The upcoming batch of episodes is set to begin in 1963 and will feature everything from Beatlemania to England winning the World Cup in 1966, a feat it came close to replicating last year

‘SNL’: How John Mulaney Helped Pete Davidson Return After Suicide Scare

‘SNL’: How John Mulaney Helped Pete Davidson Return After Suicide Scare
It wasn’t entirely surprising that Pete Davidson was on last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” even after posting disturbing messages suggesting he was suicidal last month, but it was surprising to see him flanked by former “SNL” writer John Mulaney. The two appeared as a duo on “Weekend Update,” where Davidson is a regular, to discuss everything from their shared appreciation of Clint Eastwood’s “The Mule” to the fact that Davidson is doing much better now. According to Vanity Fair, Mulaney joining the segment was no coincidence — he’s struggled with his own substance-abuse issues in the past.

“I didn’t realize you guys hung out together,” Colin Jost said after Mulaney showed up. “Yeah, we do, but a lot of times it looks like I’m Pete’s lawyer,” the comedian replied. “But for real, I’ve been spending time with Pete to try to

Why “The Orville” Probably Won’t Make it Past Season 2

If you’re a Seth MacFarlane fan then you might have already taken a look at The Orville and either loved it or hated it depending on how much you like the creator. But one thing seems kind of hard to get around, and that’s the idea that the show will last past season 2. Some people might scoff at this and others might be warming up their fingers for a quick rebuttal, but the belief that this show can last into a third season is something that’s a bit iffy for a few reasons, which I’ll gladly expand upon in
