The Florida Georgia Line Effect: Mentoring New Artists and Setting Sights on Pop Stardom (Certified Country)

The Florida Georgia Line Effect: Mentoring New Artists and Setting Sights on Pop Stardom (Certified Country)
Five years, three albums and 13 No. 1 singles after making their major label debut, Here's to the Good Times, Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard humbly, reluctantly attempts to answer a loaded question: "Do you feel like you've made it?" 

"Ah..." he trails off initially, with bandmate Brian Kelley jumping in to attempt a deflection. "We made it to these awards!" he says, referencing the Cmt Artists of the Year event, where they have been honored alongside country royalty every year for the last five years. "We made it here!" 

"It's hard not to think we've made it when you look out every night and see 30,000 people singing your songs," Hubbard allows. 

"At the same time," he continues, "we're big dreamers and we kind of say, 'The sky's the limit, so let's see where this thing is going to go,' and we kind of continue that motto and see where it leads us."

Comic-Con 2017 Interviews: Elijah Wood, Samuel Barnett & More Talk Dirk Gently’S Holistic Detective Agency Season 2

When Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency returns with new episodes this fall on BBC America, we'll see the return of familiar faces as well as plenty of new characters looking to either align themselves with or hunt down Dirk (Samuel Barnett) and Todd (Elijah Wood). At San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead had the opportunity to take part in roundtable interviews with returning cast members Barnett, Wood, Hannah Marks, and Jade Eshete, as well as new additions Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine, to discuss what's to come in season 2.

What can we expect from season 2, especially your relationship with each other? Can we expect you to work better together or will we still get head-butting moments?

Elijah Wood: Yeah, there's actually been kind of a shift in regards to our relationship. In the first season, Todd is super reluctant to do anything that Dirk wants him to do, or to

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast The Universal Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, More!)

  • LRM Online
Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends get to play studio execs and cast talent for upcoming projects. We sort of take the same tact as the old Wizard Magazine features where we choose our dream picks for coveted roles without necessarily being tied down to realistic options. 

With the case of Universal's upcoming Cinematic Universe of Classic Monsters, we thankfully have a very wide palette to choose from since the studio has already secured some surprisingly high-profile talent. So that actually takes some of the "pie in the sky/fantasy" nature out of our picks, since it seems like they're able to get who ever they want to appear in these films.

So far, we've got The Mummy with stars like Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. Then there's Johnny Depp, who's signed on for The Invisible Man. The sky's the limit for these monster flicks,

Most kids love to imagine what they'll be when they grow up, such as a doctor, a garbageman or a firetruck. The sky's the limit, but many years ago a young Kevin had his heart set on becoming a paleontologist.

Nonverbal Teen Writes Beautiful Letter Explaining His Autism: 'I Love Myself Just the Way I Am'

  • PEOPLE.com
For 14 years, Gordy Baylinson didn't speak or show signs of emotion, so everyone around him - including his parents - believed he didn’t understand them. Then, last year, Gordy's therapist began teaching the young man with autism spectrum disorder a new communication technique called the Rapid Prompting Method, the Washington Post reports. Using this method, the 16-year-old from Potomac, Maryland has been able to show those around him that he has understood everything and has an incredibly rich inner life. Now, he's hoping to use this new ability to communicate to help others understand and accept people with autism.

It's week three on The Bachelor and things are getting very interesting.

If you thought Olivia was the only woman creating some major drama, think again. This week, Jubilee found herself face-to-face with one very angry group of women – and she wasn't having any of it.

Underappreciated Actress Leslie Dead at 90: Tough Girl Next Door Fought Warner Bros, Danced with Astaire and Cagney

Joan Leslie. Joan Leslie: Actress who fought Warner Bros. and costarred opposite Gary Cooper and Fred Astaire dead at 90 Joan Leslie, best (somewhat mis)remembered as sweet girl next door types in Hollywood movies of the '40s, died on Oct. 12, '15, in Los Angeles. Leslie (born on Jan. 26, 1925, in Detroit) was 90. Among her best-known movies are Howard Hawks' Sergeant York (1941), opposite Best Actor Oscar winner Gary Cooper; Michael Curtiz's Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), opposite Best Actor Oscar winner James Cagney; and Curtiz's militaristic musical This Is the Army (1943), opposite George Murphy and Ronald Reagan, and with songs by Irving Berlin. All three movies were mammoth box office hits. And all three did their best to showcase Leslie, who was not even 18 at the time, as insipid young things; in the first two – and in The Sky's the Limit (1943), opposite Fred Astaire – paired up with men more than

Sergeant York and Yankee Doodle Dandy's Joan Leslie dies, aged 90
Hollywood star Joan Leslie has died, aged 90.

An obituary published by her family in The Los Angeles Times confirmed that Leslie passed away in Los Angeles on Monday (October 12).

While still in her teenage years, Leslie racked up roles in the Oscar-winning Sergeant York, Yankee Doodle Dandy, This Is the Army and The Sky's the Limit.

In her later years, Leslie worked on television and made memorable appearances in Charlie's Angels, The Incredible Hulk and Murder, She Wrote, among other shows.

Leslie got married in 1950 to obstetrician Dr William Caldwell, with whom she had twin daughters. Dr Caldwell died back in 2000.

'Arrow' Spinoff 'The Atom' Planned at The CW

'Arrow' Spinoff 'The Atom' Planned at The CW
Earlier today, The CW announced that Arrow and The Flash have been renewed, along with six other shows, during the network's TCA Winter Tour presentation. Network president Mark Pedowitz also revealed that The CW is engaged in "very early talks" with Arrow producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim for yet another spin-off, based on the Ray Palmer/Atom character played by Brandon Routh. While he hasn't transformed into Atom yet on Arrow, a new trailer released last week showed Palmer constructing his Atom suit, so it seems we'll be seeing him spring into action very soon. Here's what Greg Berlanti had to say about the Atom spin-off.

"We're in very early talks in a very general idea that we haven't gone deeper on yet."

Mark Pedowitz added his own brief statement teasing the possible spin-off.

"You'd have to be judicious. Could there be another hour in that universe?

Star Wars spinoff films to feature 'origins movies' alongside new trilogy

New Star Wars movies will include origins tales as well as standalone films featuring characters from original trilogy

Disney has confirmed that its planned spin-off Star Wars movies will be origins stories.

The studio, which bought all rights to the long-running space opera saga last October with its purchase of LucasFilm for $4.05bn, has long said it plans a new film each year from 2015. These will consist of a new trilogy of movies, starting with Star Wars: Episode VII, and a variety of standalone films which have been rumoured to feature characters from the original trilogy that ran between 1977 and 1983.

Disney chief financial officer Jay Rasulo said last week during a conference call with investors that each of these spin-off movies would be an "origins story film". Of Star Wars as a whole, he said the saga was "not a new franchise for kids," but added that the property was ripe for exploitation.

Ugh, New 'Star Wars' Movies Set to Be Origin Stories

Back when Disney bought out Lucasfilm with the intention of making "Star Wars: Episode VII" and beyond, the news was met with a heaping pile of skepticism. So much (understandable) vitriol and snark. But then once some of the original castmembers were wrangled back in and J.J. Abrams, giant fanboy-slash-sick director that he is, was tapped to lead the Warsian charge, well, attitudes shifted a bit toward excitement and intrigue.

Today's news might just earn a new hiss or two from the crowd, though.

Per Variety, Walt Disney's CFO Jay Rasulo addressed the financial state of the Mickey Mouse Club studio yesterday and touched on the subject of its intergalactic buyout.

According to him, Disney plans to kick things off in a big way with "Episode VII" so as to make the movie releases an annual thing (overkill much?), and here's the real kicker: at least some of those yearly

'Star Wars: Episode 7' and Beyond: Disney Details Plans for Franchise

Disney announced yesterday that it's planning on releasing one new "Star Wars" film a year, starting with J.J. Abrams's "Episode VII" in 2015.

At the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference, Walt Disney Company CFO Jay Rasulo detailed the studio's plans for "Star Wars," which was a key part of the company's $4 billion acquisition of Lucasfilm, a deal that went through last year. "Of all our worries, 'Star Wars' is not one of them," Rasulo told the crowd, per Variety.

"The sky's the limit," Rasulo said of the perennially hot franchise's potential. "There's incredible flexibility. It's an unbelievable palette to create from."

Rasulo went on to reveal that one new film -- either an installment of the new "Star Wars" trilogy, set to kick off with "Star Wars: Episode VII," or an "origin story" spin-off film -- will arrive every summer. This will result in

Star Wars Stand-Alone Movies Will Be Origin Stories
We know that Disney plans on releasing Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015, Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017 and Star Wars: Episode IX in 2019, with two spin-off movies arriving in 2016 and 2018. Disney CFO Jay Rasulo spoke at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills earlier today, where he revealed that the spin-offs will be "origin movies."

We first reported on the spin-offs in February, when Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are writing the movies. The next day, we confirmed that the movies will focus on Han Solo and Boba Fett.

The Han Solo movie will take place between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, with Boba Fett's movie occurring between Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back,

Look Who's Back On 'Parenthood' For More

Look Who's Back On 'Parenthood' For More
Matt Lauria is officially returning to "Parenthood" for its fifth season.

The "Friday Night Lights" alum will reprise his role as Ryan York on the NBC drama and will likely appear in half of the season's episodes, according to TVLine.

Lauria played Amber's (Mae Whitman) love interest in Season 4 and though they had a rocky time of it, the two ended things in a good place in the finale.

"My favorite thing about 'Parenthood' is that they really allow the characters to actually grow ... but, you know, that's not without challenges," Whitman told Wetpaint at the Atx Television Festival in June. "[Amber] is in this relationship with this guy, who really balances her out really well, and I love who they are together and how they're figuring stuff out, but they're also really young and they have a lot of stuff to figure out about themselves ...

Review: Xavier Dolan's Epic 'Laurence Anyways'

"The sky's the limit," Fred (Suzanne Clement) says when she's asked about what people will say when her boyfriend Laurence (Melvin Poupad) decides to become a woman. It's 1989 and she believes that her generation is ready to handle transsexuality -- and perhaps they are -- but as both Fred and Laurence soon find out, their intellectual capacity to deal with the transition may not survive the rigors of the heart. The young director Xavier Dolan has proven he's anything if not divisive, and his latest, "Laurence Anyways," will do nothing to change that. But as messy as it is, as much as the film overreaches and overplays its hand, "Laurence Anyways" is also exciting for the very ambition and narrative daring that it contains. For Laurence, becoming a woman is a matter of survival. He compares his life to holding his breath underwater for over 30 years, with the decision to

Everything You Need To Know About 'Under The Dome'

Everything You Need To Know About 'Under The Dome'
What is "Under the Dome"? After reporters were treated to an early look at the first episode of CBS' new summer TV series -- adapted from the bestselling Stephen King novel of the same name -- executive producers Neal Baer and Brian K. Vaughan (who wrote the first episode) attempted to answer that question and many more.

Luckily, the premiere speaks for itself, offering a gripping, handsomely-produced hour laden with mystery, a slew of creative (and disgusting) special effects, and a number of intriguingly ambiguous characters, lead by "Breaking Bad's" Dean Norris, "Pan Am's" Mike Vogel and "Twilight's" Rachelle Lefevre.

The show revolves around the fictional town of Chester's Mill, and explores what happens to its inhabitants after an impenetrable dome of unknown origin cuts them off from the rest of the world.

Baer described the series as "the new 'Twin Peaks,' in a way. You
