Will ‘Better Call Saul’ Go Full ‘Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’? Maybe, Showrunners say

Will ‘Better Call Saul’ Go Full ‘Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’? Maybe, Showrunners say
We already know “Better Call Saul” is going catch up to the timeline of its predecessor “Breaking Bad” in some way during the upcoming fourth season, but does that mean Easter eggs, or will the stories become parallel narratives?

Showrunners Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan wouldn’t say for sure, but they did indicate that they’re considering the latter possibility at the “Better Call Saul” panel Thursday afternoon in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.

In response to a fan asking if “Better Call Saul” will ever catch up to “Breaking Bad” and run in a parallel timeline, a la “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” — which is set in the background of “Hamlet” — Gould said “I’d like to see that. We’ll see.”

‘Big Brother 20’: Who got the worst Crap App? [Poll]

Faysal, Rachel and Haleigh were the unlucky “winners” of the Crap App on “Big Brother 20,” being the least trending houseguest each week. Their punishments have varied from eating to verbal abuse and from lasting one whole week to just 24 hours. But whose Crapp was the worst?

Faysal: Hamazon

Honestly, we’re not sure why Fessy chose Hamazon. He’s a Muslim and “ham” is right there in the name, so you have to assume ham would be involved somehow. Nevertheless, that’s what he picked and thankfully “Big Brother” hooked him up with vegan ham, which he had to eat every time there was a Hamazon delivery. And there were lots. This lasted for a full week. It was gross. We don’t even want to him about how many pounds of ham he consumed.

‘Big Brother’ 20 episode 10 recap: Did Winston Hines or Brett Robinson win the Veto on July 18? [Updating Live Blog]

  • Gold Derby
Despite giving it their best effort, bros Winston Hines or Brett Robinson were both nominated for eviction this week by “Big Brother’s” third Head of Household Scottie Salton. Scottie had one-on-ones with all of the houseguests to try to get to the bottom of who voted out his closest ally Steve Arienta back in week one, which resulted in him putting Winston and Brett on the block. The bros were understandably furious, with Brett calling Scottie an “idiot” and Winston threatening to send him home “next week.” Were Winston or Brett able to save themselves during Wednesday’s nail-biting Veto competition?

‘Big Brother 20’ spoilers: Should Sam use her power this week after Monday’s drama? [Poll]

‘Big Brother 20’ spoilers: Should Sam use her power this week after Monday’s drama? [Poll]
Since Haleigh‘s reciting “Hamlet” in the “Big Brother 20” house this week, she should ask Sam, “To use or not to use?” Sam received the first Power App, Bonus Life, and has only two more chances to use it before it expires. Technically, it’s just one chance because if she doesn’t decide to use it this week, it will automatically be used at next week’s eviction. So should Sam use it this week? That is the question.

Sam has always leaned toward not using the power, which would give the evicted houseguest the chance to compete in a comp to return to the house, but a lot has gone down in the last 24 hours, thanks to Kaitlyn. (Spoilers ahead!)

After Tyler‘s late father came to her in a dream, Kaitlyn told Scottie that she was the flip vote for Steve and that Sam had one of

‘Big Brother’ 20: Is Scottie really an ‘idiot’ for nominating bros Brett and Winston? [Poll]

“Scottie, what an idiot!” Brett Robinson fumed in the diary room after Scottie Salton nominated him and Winston Hines for eviction during Sunday’s episode of “Big Brother” 20. “I just hope that he knows that he drew the line because he can only send one person home. So Winston or I will be staying here. Stupid play, buddy.” Scottie made the decision to break up the self-named bros because Brett and Winston have the “strongest relationship” in the house. Do you agree that Scottie is an “idiot” for nominating the bros, or is this a smart move for his game? Vote down in our poll below.

Jeremy Strong on Transitioning to TV in HBO’s ‘Succession’

Jeremy Strong on Transitioning to TV in HBO’s ‘Succession’
The Big Short” actor Jeremy Strong no longer primarily treads the boards. The stage vet has entered the TV scene in a big way, starring in HBO’s “Succession,” in which he plays troubled son Kendall Roy.

What was the transition from stage to television like?

Most of my heroes started out in theater, so I was always doing plays. The transition into film took longer than I wanted, but I am grateful for the years of hardship that I went through because they allowed me to connect with characters, in terms of adversity, in a way that I wouldn’t have otherwise.

20 Behind-The-Scenes Photos That Completely Change Sons Of Anarchy

When FX's Sons of Anarchy rode onto screens in 2008, it introduced the world to biker gang Samcro. This gang ruled the highways from their base in Charming, California. They often engaged in numerous illegal activities.

Created by The Shield writer Kurt Sutter, the series lasted seven epic seasons. By the time the show drove off into the sunset, it was pulling in an average of over 10 million viewers. This wasn't bad going considering it had started with just over 2 million.

In fact, it became so popular that spin-off Mayans M.C. is due to continue Soa's legacy when it premieres later this year.

Often described as "Hamlet on wheels," Soa followed the tragic story of Jackson "Jax" Teller, as he tried to find his place in the club. This was made more complex with his father's legacy, a deceitful father-in-law, and Jax's very complicated relationship with his mother.

Guardians Director James Gunn Tells Star Wars Haters To Go To Therapy

Let me begin by clarifying one simple fact – the toxicity and outrageous hatred that’s followed in The Last Jedi‘s wake is by no means exclusive to Star Wars. But in light of Ahmed Best’s shocking revelation, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has delivered a stern message to those bigots populating the interwebs: “go to therapy.”

Just yesterday, it was revealed that Best, the actor behind Jar Jar Binks, contemplated suicide amid the backlash to his clumsy Gungan outcast. The actor had previously detailed the vitriol and death threats sent his way soon after The Phantom Menace released in ’99, but this is the first time that Ahmed Best had talked openly about wanting to take his own life almost 20 years ago.

This heartrending story has prompted a massive outpouring of support from the Star Wars community, which, it should be said, is typically known for its welcoming,

‘The King’ Is a One-of-a-Kind Documentary That Holds Elvis Up to the Haunting Light of Today

It’s always good news when a documentary finds a major audience, and 2018 has become the summer of the documentary blockbuster. First “Rbg,” then “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?,” and now — perhaps — “Three Identical Strangers,” the Sundance sensation about grown-up triplets who find one another (it had a powerful limited opening this weekend). Coming up Friday: “Whitney,” a bold and beautiful exposé of the life of Whitney Houston that has the potential to be another “Amy.” Yet there is one new documentary that’s hiding, just a bit, in the shadows, and it’s one that I passionately urge you to see, because it’s a one-of-a-kind movie that leaves a deep and lasting imprint.

The King,” directed by Eugene Jarecki, is a nonfiction chronicle of the life and career of Elvis Presley, but it’s really a documentary-meditation-essay-rhapsody, one that captures, as almost no film has, what’s happening,

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making
Sam Rockwell isn’t slowing down. A few months after winning every award under the sun for his performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the actor is back in theaters with another distinctly American film: “Woman Walks Ahead,” which required him to saddle up as a cowboy and learn the Lakota language alongside Jessica Chastain. The recent Oscar winner isn’t stateside for the release of Susanna White’s 1890’s period piece about Sitting Bull and the woman who traveled across the country to paint his portrait, however — he’s in Prague, where production on “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waiti’s outrageous-sounding “Jojo Rabbit” is underway.

“It is the greatest script I’ve read in so long,” Rockwell said over the phone of the dark comedy that Waititi hopes will “piss off a lot of racists.” Asked about his character, Captain Klenzendorf, the actor

Ethan Hawke movies: 14 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Training Day,’ ‘First Reformed’

Ethan Hawke movies: 14 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Training Day,’ ‘First Reformed’
It’s hard to believe, but four-time Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke has celebrated over three decades in the film business. Hawke made his film debut in Joe Dante‘s 1985 film, “Explorers” and 33 years later has received some of the best reviews of his career for 2018’s “First Reformed,” which is currently playing in theaters across the country.

Although an accomplished Tony-nominated stage actor, Hawke is primarily celebrated for his work in movies. He is one of the few performers who has been a double Oscar nominee in both the acting category (“Training Day” and “Boyhood”) and writing (“Before Sunrise” and “Before Midnight”). Hawke has also been nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards (“Training Day” and “Boyhood”), as well as a Golden Globe nod for “Boyhood.”

Unquestionably, Hawke’s most notable film collaborations have been with writer/director Richard Linklater, who had the ability to bring out something extra in him.

Andrew Scott Says There’s No Rivalry With Benedict Cumberbatch Over Shared Role

Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Scott play nemeses on BBC’s Sherlock, as the titular Great Detective and Jim Moriarty, but in real life, it seems there isn’t any bad blood between them. Not even a little bit of theatrical competition.

You see, both actors recently landed arguably the most coveted role out there when they each played the lead in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet in different London productions. Cumberbatch portrayed the Prince of Denmark back in 2015, in a highly acclaimed adaptation at The National Theatre, while last year, Andrew Scott took on the part at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

If you think Cumberbatch would feel uneasy about his Sherlock co-star playing Hamlet so soon after him though, you’d be wrong, as Scott was keen to dispel this idea when it was put to him in an interview with The Guardian. He revealed that the pair didn’t have

Sons Of Anarchy: 8 Stars Who Became A-Listers (And 7 Who Flopped)

<strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/sons-of-anarchy/"><em>Sons of Anarchy</em></a></strong> charted the fates of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Redwood Original club, or Samcro, as they ran guns, took on rival biker gangs and generally lived the outlaw lifestyle – much to chagrin of the residents of Charming, California.

Created by <em>The Shield</em> writer and executive producer Kurt Sutter, <em>Sons of Anarchy</em> can be summed up as Hamlet on two wheels. In the show, Jax Teller, the Hamlet character, is torn between the memory of his father and his feelings towards his mother and step-dad, who also happens to be the man who usurped his father as club president. Only in this version Hamlet is heavily armed and rides a Harley.

When <em>Sons of Anarchy</em> premiered in 2008 it averaged 2.8 million viewers. But by the time its seventh and final season aired, it was pulling in over 10 million viewers, making it by far the biggest hit on FX. Among
