5 Videos of the Real Tonya Harding You Need to Watch to Truly Appreciate 'I, Tonya'

5 Videos of the Real Tonya Harding You Need to Watch to Truly Appreciate 'I, Tonya'
I, Tonya, an unconventional biopic about the unconventional, embattled yet iconic '90s figure skater, is based on "irony free, wildly contradictory and totally true" interviews with Tonya Harding and her one-time husband, Jeff Gillooly. (We're told as much via title card at the start of the movie.)

While the conflicting details of those discussions constitute the crux of the film, many key moments in Harding's life have played out in front of the cameras, allowing for a side-by-side comparison of actual events and as restaged by Margot Robbie as Tonya Harding. Either watch these videos before seeing I, Tonya, out now, or come back afterward to truly appreciate how closely the movie nails it.

The Real Tonya Harding, Then and Now

Donning an array of permed wigs and bedazzled unitards, Robbie plays Harding from her teenage years into her 20s -- then via makeup and prosthetics, she is aged up to play Harding at 44. This vintage news reel

Let's Reflect on the Time Jon Snow Sang Ygritte a Hilarious Game of Thrones Song

Who knew Chris Martin was so passionate about Game of Thrones? The Coldplay frontman participated in a truly unforgettable sketch for Red Nose Day back in 2015, and we can't help but watch it over and over again, especially now that the show is on its seventh season. There are some great scenes, including Emilia Clarke's take on a song called "Rastafarian Targaryen" (yes, really), but the true set-piece is Kit Harington's version of "Wild Thing" (only it's "Wildling"). He dedicates the song to real-life girlfriend Rose Leslie, since the pair played doomed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte in Game of Thrones. Let's just say that the way she looks at him will make you swoon right of your chair. RelatedPeter Dinklage's Game of Thrones Song Is the Best Show Summary

Major League 3 Is Ready to Go, It Just Needs Funding

Major League 3 Is Ready to Go, It Just Needs Funding
After years of talk, it looks like Major League 3 may finally happen. Charlie Sheen has been into the idea of doing the movie for years, but now he says everyone is on board and they are just waiting for someone to "write a check." Assuming they can get financing together, it sounds like original director David S. Ward and the entire original cast are set to return for the long-awaited sequel.

The 51-year-old actor recently spoke with TMZ and revealed that David S. Ward has written the script for Major League 3 and that the movie is ready to go. He also said that "everybody is back," when asked who would be returning. That would presumably include Wesley Snipes and Tom Berenger. Though, he did note that Lou Brown, who was played by James Gammon in both Major League movies, will not be included in the sequel, but said they will "do it in his honor.

Major League 3 is in the works according to Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen has revealed that Major League 3 is in development during a recent interview.

Major League came at the height of Charlie Sheen’s movie career back in 1989 and became a much loved baseball film in the process.

Now Sheen is reporting that another sequel is in the works with the original cast and director attached to the project.

Speaking to TMZ, the actor said “We’re looking to get Major League 3 done,” and “We’re just looking for someone to write a check.”

Newswire: Fear not, Cleveland: “Wild Thing” Charlie Sheen is on his way

In 1989’s Major League, Charlie Sheen played Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, a nearly blind pitcher straight out of prison who, with some training, became both an excellent pitcher and a bit of a ladies man. It was a weirdly career defining role for Sheen, and though the actor has been through some tiger-blood infused tough times since, he still feels some sort of connection with Vaughn—or at least with the celebrity that his connection with the Cleveland Indians can bring him now that the team is in the World Series.

At least, that’s the jist of Sheen’s recent Twitter activity. He’s been tweeting a ton as the team has journeyed through the post-season, and lobbied intensely to throw out the first pitch of the first game of the Series, though the Indians shut him down in favor of an Indians legend, Kenny Lofton. Sheen responded ...

"Wild Thing" Charlie Sheen Recaps World Series, Comments On Bill Murray

Charlie Sheen thinks the World Series will go 7 games, and perhaps controversially, doesn't take a side on who he thinks is going to win it all. The actor wrote a lengthy letter published by THR in which he summarized the World Series so far, including his take on Bill Murray's now-infamous rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ball Game," and more. 

Starting first with Bill Murray and his...questionable decision to do the thing as Daffy Duck, Sheen said this...

I should also mention Bill Murray's "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." As a student of the game, Bill's intro sounded like he was talking about Harry Caray, but then he goes into Daffy Duck. That doesn't sit at the doorstop of baseball's unearthed mythology. It's was... different. That's all I'm saying.

Sheen talked about all the games and then finished out game five with this:

Charlie Sheen Jumps Back Into 'Major League' Indians Uniform for World Series

Charlie Sheen Jumps Back Into 'Major League' Indians Uniform for World Series
Charlie Sheen might be the most famous Cleveland Indian to have never actually played in a real game, and he made his World Series alliance clear prior to Game 2.

The 51-year-old Golden Globe winner jumped back into his Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn jersey from Major League for a video tweeted on Wednesday night before the Indians took on the Chicago Cubs at Progressive Field.

"Go tribe," Sheen says in the clip, standing in front of a screen projecting the 1989 comedy.

Sheen has been a favorite among Indians fans since playing the hotshot rookie pitcher on the big screen, leading some to push for him to throw out the first pitch for the World Series. To Sheen's disappointment, that honor went to former Indians outfielder Kenny Lofton.

Charlie Sheen is picking the Cleveland Indians to win the World Series, obviously.  Ever since he played Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in the 1989 hit Major League, the 51-year-old actor has had a soft spot for the Cleveland team and its fans. And they love him back, many pushing for the former Two and a Half Men star to throw out the first pitch for the Fall Classic, an honor that ultimately went to former Indians outfielder Kenny Lofton.

Great Job, Internet!: The Cubs take on the Indians in this World Series movie mashup

The 2016 World Series began last night, and the participants were two of baseball’s most notoriously hard-luck franchises: the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians, neither of which has actually won it all in decades. A Cubs-Indians series sounds like a fantasy scenario from Hollywood, which may have been the inspiration for “Movie World Series 2016,” a clever movie mashup by Ross Taylor. Largely culling clips from two lighthearted comedies, David S. Ward’s Major League from 1989 and Daniel Stern’s Rookie Of The Year from 1993, Taylor has managed to piece together a pretty convincing game between these two continually thwarted teams. At heart, this is a pitcher’s duel featuring two of the game’s most eccentric hurlers. On the mound for the Cubs is Henry Rowengartner (Thomas Ian Nicholas), a 12-year-old with an arm like a cannon. Pitching for the Tribe is Ricky “Wild Thing ...

Newswire: Charlie Sheen will happily play a Cleveland Indian again, if needed

The Cleveland Indians have bucked all expectations this year, demolishing all American League competition to win the pennant. And look, Cleveland probably deserves it—the Midwestern city somehow managed to weather the Republican National Convention. The team’s success has trickled down to help local businesses, as well as inspire even Charlie Sheen. CBS Sports reports that the actor is ready to step back into his unofficial Cleveland Indians uniform, which he donned for two Major League films.

The former Two And A Half Men star gamely offered to throw out the first pitch at one of the World Series games, you know, assuming he has the time between angry/lovable man-child projects. Then, as if that weren’t enough, Sheen tweeted that he’d reprise his role as Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn, should the team need the moral support of a fictional character who initially struggled with his pitch
