The Crown's Matt Smith Responds to Claire Foy Pay Disparity: 'I Believe That We Should Be Paid Equally and Fairly'
The Crown‘s Matt Smith has nothing but respect for his queen.

After it was first revealed that Smith was paid more than the show’s star Claire Foy, the actor is now speaking out in support of his co-star’s right for pay parity, as well as a “more even playing field” for all.

“Claire is one of my best friends, and I believe that we should be paid equally and fairly,” Smith told The Hollywood Reporter. “I support her completely, and I am pleased that it was resolved and they made amends for that, because [that’s what] needed to happen.

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Molly Parker

Molly Parker is a very well-known face in Hollywood though she’s usually used as a supporting character to the rest of the cast. She’s usually character of some importance that has a lot to do with the main idea of the story and has her finger on the pulse what’s going on. She’s played the villain and the protagonist in her many roles and has both a winning smile and a very charming but devious look that suggests she’s capable of far more than people seem to realize. In other words she’s a very versatile actress. 5. She studied ballet

The Top Uses of Shakira Songs in Movies or TV

I’m betting a lot of people wouldn’t know that Shakira is 40 years old just by looking at her. The Colombian-born pop star has had quite the career since coming on the scene in 1995 and her music quickly made its way to TV and to movies. Since then she’s been a sensation no matter where she’s seen or heard. Her fame goes hand in hand with her voice since it’s an unmistakably beautiful sound and is used wherever people can in order to reference her popularity. Even her name has been used in shows and movies just to reference

John Oliver Compares Donald Trump Administration To ‘Sharknado’

John Oliver began his HBO late night show with talk of yet another busy week for the Trump administration “the Sharknado of administrations in that they are spinning out of control, destroying everything in their path and will almost certainly eventually hire Tara Reid,” he said. The week was dominated by the continuing fallout of previous week's FBI raid on Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen. And while no charges have been brought against him yet, there is already…

‘American Idol’ Recap: The Final Fourteen Sing for America’s First Vote

‘American Idol’ Recap: The Final Fourteen Sing for America’s First Vote
Nearly one hour into “American Idol,” judge Katy Perry nearly gave up waiting for someone to “start the show.” Then Ada Vox (pictured) stepped up to the microphone. Dramatically standing center stage and channeling her inner Freddie Mercury with power and conviction over a, perhaps, overzealous band, some notes may have sounded strained but the emotion made it work.

“I was waiting for someone to show up,” said Perry.

Added Lionel Richie: “You have no idea how fabulous you are… you came here tonight to stop the show.”

Vox was certainly looking like the one to beat, and her

Five Things To Know about Netflix’s “The Innocents”

Netflix is at it again with a show that’s set to charge people up once more with a supernatural lean that angles into the drama pool while tugging at the heartstrings and enticing people to watch as the story unfolds in a particularly mysterious manner. The streaming giant is becoming quite good at luring people in and has so far managed to keep most of the promises that its shows have made by keeping people entertained and wanting more. Among the newest of their attractions, The Innocents is one that shows a lot without telling a lot right off the

‘Barry’: Sarah Goldberg on Why Sally’s Unresolved #MeToo Moment Feels True to Life

‘Barry’: Sarah Goldberg on Why Sally’s Unresolved #MeToo Moment Feels True to Life
Barry” is a story filled with payback. Rival mafia gangs order retaliatory hits as payback for dwindling numbers. Even Barry’s (Bill Hader) decision to stick with his acting class is, on some level, a way to get back at Fuches (Stephen Root), his manipulative handler.

A character who doesn’t get that same sense of revenge is Sally (Sarah Goldberg), one of Barry’s classmates. In last week’s episode, a meeting with her potential agent goes from hopeful to predatory when he tells Sally, “I get to this point with a lot of my prospective clients where I have a decision to make: Do I wanna sign them or do I wanna fuck them?” The jarring comment hangs in the air as Sally, unsure of how to respond, pauses, then fumbles until the agent tries to play it off as joke.

The Top Five Jake Busey Movie Roles of His Career

Jake Busey is the kind of actor that was wild and crazy when he was younger but has since matured and in some cases kind of slipped into obscurity. His best stuff was really when he was younger, but some would argue that since he’s matured he’s really come on as a stronger and more disciplined actor. However it hasn’t really seemed to help him get noticed in the current era, though it does seem as though he might have his chance as a reporter with questionable morals that seems more like the characters he used to play when he

‘Westworld’ Recap: Enchantment Under the Sea

Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Journey Into Night,” the first episode of the second season of HBO’s “Westworld.”

The very first shot of “Westworld” reminds us of what worked best about the HBO drama’s first season. All television shows should open up with a tight shot of Jeffrey Wright. But then that shot moves back, and Wright starts talking, and it becomes clear that, like so many episodes last season, “Journey Into Night” will begin with one of Bernard — at least he’s almost certainly Bernard this time — and Dolores’ face-to-face chats. And just like that,

American Idol Top 14 Recap: 'Live' Finals Get Off to a Rocky Start

American Idol Top 14 Recap: 'Live' Finals Get Off to a Rocky Start
“I’m Ryan Seacrest, and this is… a series of terrible song choices.”

At least that’s how Sunday’s American Idol probably should have been introduced. Though the performances improved dramatically as the two-hour event progressed, this episode — the first one where America’s opinion actually matters — found some of Season 16’s best singers at their worst.

But was it all because of nerves? Or are we finally separating the dreamers from the achievers? You be the (fourth) judge as we break down all of tonight’s performances:

Katy Perry nailed it when she praised Hutchinson for his remarkable evolution.

Westworld Season 2 Premiere Recap: Who Survived the Host Uprising?

Westworld Season 2 Premiere Recap: Who Survived the Host Uprising?
Need to catch up? Check out the Westworld Season 1 finale recap.

Karma’s not a bitch. Karma’s a newly self-aware android with an itchy trigger finger.

Welcome to Westworld Season 2, where all of the robotic hosts designed to facilitate human fantasies are awake, angry and armed — a lethal combination for any human who happens to scurry across their path.

If you, like Original Flavor Dolores, choose to see the beauty in the world and therefore hope that the sci-fi drama’s sophomore outing will take a straighter narrative path than it did in Season 1… well, aren’t you precious.

‘Westworld’ Season 2 Premiere Review: ‘Journey Into Night’ Draws Us Back Into the Compelling Mysteries With a Bloodbath

‘Westworld’ Season 2 Premiere Review: ‘Journey Into Night’ Draws Us Back Into the Compelling Mysteries With a Bloodbath
[Editor’s Note: This review contains spoilers for “Westworld” Season 2, Episode 1, “Journey Into Night.”]

Programming Update

A good “Westworld” theory today can easily be a big “Westworld” spoiler tomorrow, as fans of the show know. But while critics were provided with the first five episodes of the season by HBO, these weekly reviews will not be influenced by future knowledge of what’s to come, because they’re being written by someone who hasn’t seen beyond each week’s episode.

We’re all on the same page, friend. Saddle up for a hell of a ride.

Diagnostic Report

Season 2 opens with the mirror of the opening of Season 1 — Bernard telling Dolores about his dream, as opposed to the other way around. Timeline-wise, this scene is a bit nebulous (much like the similar Arnold/Bernard and Dolores scenes were in Season 1), but does continue the show’s ongoing engagement with the nature of reality, in the context of

‘Westworld’ Season 2 Premiere Recap: Time’s Up In The Park

Spoiler Alert: This story contains details about Westworld’s season 2 premiere tonight on HBO, "Journey Into Night". “The women rule supreme this season, it's all about the women.” That’s what Tessa Thompson (aka Delos exec Charlotte Hale) told us yesterday at our Tribeca studio in regards to season 2 of HBO’s Westworld, and indeed the message was clear tonight in the android theme park: We are women, hear us roar.

Fear the Walking Dead Recap: Villainous Vultures Cast Themselves as Saviors

Fear the Walking Dead Recap: Villainous Vultures Cast Themselves as Saviors
Credit where it’s due: Sunday’s Fear the Walking Dead, only the second episode under the AMC drama’s new showrunners, was probably the series’ best since Season 3’s “The New Frontier.” In “Another Day in the Diamond,” which was elevated by Jenna Elfman doing truly lovely, subtle work in her debut as Naomi, we learned what — or, rather, who — had driven Alicia, Nick, Strand and Luciana to make prisoners of Morgan, John and Naomi in Season 4’s premiere. More importantly, the hour left us (or at least me) anxious to find out how our protagonists would manage to

Here is Every Deadpool 2 Trailer Spot That’s Come Out So Far

Instead of every Deadpool 2 trailer here is every Deadpool 2 trailer that you should need to watch to get the gist of what the movie has to offer and why you should go see it. Honestly if you haven’t seen the first movie or even perused the comic you might not be missing much since Deadpool’s ability to break the fourth wall is kind of a way of explaining just what’s going on in the movie. Plus, his life is so chaotic and his methods so unorthodox that you may as well just watch them out of order anyway
