David Cassidy's Son Will Allegedly Inherit a Lot More Than He Thought From Late Father

It's been eight months since David Cassidy passed away from organ failure at 67, but things are still being sorted out with his inheritance. According to The Blast, the late actor's son, Beau Cassidy, will receive much more than everyone originally thought. The news outlet has reported that Beau, 27, will inherit his late dad's estate, which is actually worth $200,000 after originally being valued at $150,000 plus some debts. On top of that, Beau was listed as a beneficiary of David's $450,000 retirement plan as well as his $1 million life insurance policy. That said, Beau is earning about 10 times more than originally thought with a whopping total of $1.68 million!

Ant-Man And The Wasp Director Explains Why He Chose That Post-Credits Scene

Ant-Man and the Wasp marks a considerable tonal shift in the McU from the bleak ending of Avengers: Infinity War, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Many critics and reviewers saw the latest Marvel release as a refreshing change of pace, offering a lighter, funnier alternative to the dark and expansive movie that came before.

Nonetheless, it was inevitable that Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne’s latest outing would at least have to acknowledge the grim, universe-changing repercussions of Thanos’ actions in Infinity War, and so director Peyton Reed left audiences with one last bombshell before they left theater. Before we continue, though, be warned that spoilers lie ahead.

We are, of course, referring to the mid-credits scene of the movie, which sees Hope, Janet and Hank all turn to dust as a result of Thanos’ fatal finger-snap. It’s not everyday that a film being praised as a fun,

New Documentary Reveals Alcoholism Caused David Cassidy's Dementia Before His Death (Exclusive)

Seven months after David Cassidy's untimely death, shocking new details about the singer's final years have come to light. In A&E's original "biography" documentary special David Cassidy: The Last Session, it was revealed that The Partridge Family star was suffering from alcoholism that caused dementia prior to his untimely death. "Dementia is a set of symptoms and it can be caused by a lot of things. It can be caused by Alzheimer's. It can be caused by trauma to the brain or it can be caused by alcoholism or drug use, so the question isn't really if David did have dementia because he certainly did have the signs of memory loss and dementia like symptoms. The question really was for David what caused the dementia and so I don't think all the stories about him lying or deceiving anyone...

Critics Pick the Standout Song Moments on TV – IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best use of a song on a TV show?**

**Non-theme songs preferred. “Best” is loosely defined: Most memorable? Most moving? Cleverest? Most unexpected? etc.

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

I’m glad that last week I gave a short, simple and singular answer, because there’s absolutely no way to do this one without moving into a laundry list, starting with “The Oc” and “Hide & Seek,” a sequence so seminal in its moment that it earned an “SNL” parody. Then you have to pick something from “The Americans,” a show that has mastered the art of building scenes around iconic ’80s hits,

2018 Oscars ‘In Memoriam’: Missing honorees include Academy Award-winning actress, Oscar-nominated songwriter, and breakthrough director

2018 Oscars ‘In Memoriam’: Missing honorees include Academy Award-winning actress, Oscar-nominated songwriter, and breakthrough director
The “In Memoriam” segment of the Academy Awards is guaranteed to be two things: moving and frustrating. While we laud the academy for its efforts to be even more expansive at the 2018 Oscars with the number of people to whom it pays tribute (51), it is vexing that certain famous faces were excluded. Above, watch as Eddie Vedder sings the late Tom Petty‘s “Room at the Top” as the three minute video unspools.

Among those missing from this “In Memoriam” video, the most glaring omission is 1956 Best Supporting Actress winner Dorothy Malone (“Written on the Wind”). After more than a decade as a contract player at both Rko and Warner Bros., she changed her good girl image with her searing performance as an alcoholic in Douglas Sirk’s lush drama and took home an Oscar for her efforts. She went on to headline TV’s version of the Oscar-nominated “Peyton Place.
