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.

Riverdale Is Doing Another Musical Episode, and It's Based on an Iconic '80s Teen Movie
Riverdale is setting the stage for another musical episode! After putting on a production of Carrie: The Musical during season two, the show will be taking on Heathers: The Musical, based on the 1989 teen film, this time around. The episode will air on March 20 and feature nine songs from the off-Broadway musical.

On Thursday, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa gave a glimpse of the cast list, which includes Veronica (Camila Mendes), Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch), and Betty (Lili Reinhart) as the three Heathers. "Last year, we had a blast doing Carrie," Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement. "This year, we wanted to honor another iconic teen movie. Heathers: The Musical is Big Fun, with great roles for the Riverdale kids."

And while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) didn't participate in any of the numbers last season, Aguirre-Sacasa added that "everyone is singing" this time around!

Days of Our Lives Story Line Predictions

Days of Our Lives fans are not sure what might happen in 2019, but they do know hat 2018 brought with it some serious drama. There’s a lot happening in the world of the people of Salem, and much of that revolved around the fact that some people kept coming back from the dead. The year began with a wedding interrupted to announce that Will was not, after all, dead. He was alive and well, but he had no memory and no idea what his life was like before things took a turn for him. And then the year wrapped

‘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

General Hospital Story Line Predictions

General Hospital fans aren’t immune to some seriously shocking plot line situations. It makes us think this year will continue to be the kind of year in which we have to watch things unfold in a way that won’t make much sense as a whole. But, there’s a lot we don’t know will happen. We do have some predictions, however, and we have something to say that might just shock everyone. But, for now, we just want to recap some of the major stuff that happened last year when things were not as they seemed. Drew was not Jason, and

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Marvelous Rachel Brosnahan’s Debut Features Solid Sketches

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Marvelous Rachel Brosnahan’s Debut Features Solid Sketches
It’s like the new saying goes: New year, new “SNL.” Well, to be fair, it’s also kind of the same “SNL” — especially when considering what “the same ‘SNL’” means these days, on a larger front — but it is the first episode of 2019, which make it technically correct. (Which is the best kind of correct.)

And while “SNL” ended 2018 with a (surprisingly only) two-time guest host who seemed like an old pro at the whole thing (Matt Damon), 2019 begins with a first-time guest host and one with a much less recognizable name — “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” leading actress Rachel Brosnahan.

But she’s a Golden Globe and Emmy award winner, you know.

Host: Rachel Brosnahan

Given that scary time when the singing opening monologue became the ultimate crutch for this show, at first this monologue devolving right into that did not bode at that well. But then it did

Benedict Cumberbatch on the ‘Brexit’ Movie That Had to Happen Now

Benedict Cumberbatch on the ‘Brexit’ Movie That Had to Happen Now
Three days before shooting started was when Benedict Cumberbatch really committed to the Brexit movie. Sitting in his house with director Toby Haynes, the Oscar nominee, global superstar, and $600 million-face of Marvel’s Dr. Strange said four words he couldn’t walk back: “Take off the hair.”

“We were nibbling away at his hairline, taking bits off here and there, and suddenly he just looks really weird,” Haynes said in an interview with IndieWire. “The makeup artist had a wig prepared, but the only way the wig would work is if we shaved his head. […] I looked at Benedict, he looked at me, and he said, ‘Take it off. Take off the hair.'”

“It was a bit crushing at the time,” Cumberbatch said, chuckling. “I had what’s called a ‘no hawk’ — no hair around the middle, and then I had my normal hair at the sides. Then we
