April Bowlby Cast As Doom Patrol’s Elasti-Woman

Though Doom Patrol won’t be leading the charge once Warner Bros. finally rolls out the DC Universe streaming service later this year, the series centering on a band of superpowered misfits has still been garnering its share of attention as of late. After all, it should be quite intriguing to see how the gang factors into the live action Titans show to precede it, and how it’ll spinoff from that.

Right now, you’re probably wondering who’ll headline the 13-episode saga and, fortunately, we’re able to provide you with one more piece of the puzzle today. As it turns out, April Bowlby will be playing Elasti-Woman, a character The Hollywood Reporter describes as being “an actress on the rise, Rita Farr was exposed to a toxic gas that altered her cellular structure. Longing for the days of old, Rita finds a place for herself among the Doom Patrol.

Charlie Sheen Stars in Rapper Lil Pump’s ‘Drug Addicts’ Music Video
Charlie Sheen has found a new acting gig. The “Two and a Half Men” alum’s self-professed tiger blood just infiltrated the rap game, with Sheen joining Lil Pump for the emcee’s “Drug Addicts” music video.

The two play doctors at some sort of hospital or rehab center, doing as many drugs as they prescribe. Seeing as how the duo gets hauled away at the end, we’re thinking they weren’t real MDs to begin with.

Watch the video above. Below are the lyrics, courtesy of Genius — yes, all of your favorite drugs are present and accounted for.

‘The Ranch’ returns to Netflix for season 3 as Emmy voters consider scene-stealing performance by Sam Elliott
The Ranch,” which returned to Netflix on June 15 for season 3, marks a reunion for Ashton Kutcher with two of the writers from his time on “Two and a Half Men.” The Emmy nominated Don Reo and Jim Patterson created this heartfelt series that stars Kutcher as Colt Bennett, a semi-pro football player who returns to Colorado to help his father Beau (Sam Elliott) run the family ranch. Two-time Oscar nominee Debra Winger plays Maggie, the estranged wife of Beau who runs a local watering hole while “24” and “Happy Endings” alum Elisha Cuthbert is Abby, an exy who reconnects with Colt.

Reviews have been consistently strong for Elliott. This veteran actor is enjoying a career renaissance as of late. His arc on the final season of “Justified” netted him a Critics’ Choice award while his single scene in “Grandma” earned him a nomination from the Chicago film critics.

‘Roseanne’ Spinoff: Can ABC’s ‘The Conners’ Carry the Torch at 8 Pm?

  • The Wrap
The Conners are coming back — just, you know, minus one. But can “The Conners” carry “Roseanne’s” torch without Roseanne?

Well, it had better, because the “Roseanne” spinoff sitcom, which ABC ordered 10 episodes of sight-unseen after weeks of negotiations following its decision to fire Barr, has some big shoes to fill. The Disney broadcast network has scheduled “The Conners” in its vacated “Roseanne” time slot, Tuesdays from 8 p.m.-8:30 p.m. That spot kicks off the entire evening’s lineup, and ABC saw huge Nielsen numbers — a 5.3 rating/23 share among adults 18-49 and 18.652 million total viewers, on average — there this past season.

Those figures, which include a week’s worth of delayed viewing, are hard to come by in the modern television ecosystem, and will be difficult to replicate. But Samba TV CEO Ashwin Navin believes Dan (John Goodman), Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), Darlene (Sarah Gilbert), Becky (Lecy Goranson) and D.

Warner Bros. Town Hall: John Stankey Fields Bugs Bunny Question, Promises Better Cell Coverage

John Stankey, the man tasked with integrating WarnerMedia into the At&T family, tried to sell employees at the company’s film and television studio on the virtues of being part of a global telecommunications giant. He promised to enhance cellular service on Warner Bros.’s studio lot during an hour-long presentation to staffers on Wednesday, receiving sustained applause from a group of Valley-toilers who have long been frustrated by dropped calls and dodgy signals.

The meeting is one of a series of sit-downs that Stankey, the newly minted WarnerMedia CEO, is doing this week in the wake of At&T’s $85 billion purchase of Time Warner. The company has been rechristened WarnerMedia, but so far At&T has taken pains to stress that it wants its new employees to continue making movies, shows, and other entertainment products despite having new corporate parents.

Ashton Kutcher and James Corden's Rap Battle Is So Savage, They Really Go There
Ashton Kutcher and James Corden's rap battle was so intense, they had to bring out an impartial judge with a select set of skills to name a winner. During Tuesday night's episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden, the host went head to head with Ashton, and they slammed each other on everything from their respective movie careers to James's midsection, and so much more (they really went there). James dissed Ashton's roles in Valentine's Day, New Years Eve, and even the ability to make people "miss Charlie Sheen" on Two and a Half Men, while Ashton compared James to "the baby of Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump." Watch the savage video above, and see who Diddy declared the final winner.

21 Forgettable '00s Sitcoms Only Superfans Remember

There is no more accessible form of entertainment than the sitcom. They’ve been a fixture of television sets since the inception of the medium, but they took off in the 1960s when TV sets were commonplace in households. Since then, sitcoms have come in all manner of forms, but for the most part they provide wholesome entertainment that’s fun for the whole family.

The 2000s won’t go down in history as the best era for sitcoms, but it did deliver some gems. Shows like Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, That ‘70s Show, Arrested Development, Scrubs, and How I Met Your Mother were at the forefront of TV comedy back then. While, shows like Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, and King of Queens were still enjoying their initial runs. The decade gave us some of the best and most popular comedy in the

Multi-Cams Are Staples of Broadcast TV — Will Streaming Follow Suit?

Heading into the fall, multi-camera comedies are poised to have their biggest season in years on broadcast television. The Big Four have ordered eight multi-cams among them for the 2018-19 season, up from just four the year before.

The format can trace its roots back to the first days of television, with some of the biggest and most celebrated series in history being multi-cams: “Seinfeld,” “Friends,” “Cheers,” “All in the Family,” “I Love Lucy” among many others.

Yet despite their proven track record, and the fact they are notably cheaper to produce than single-camera comedies, most networks and streaming services

However, the 43-year-old actress tells the Sunday Times that any armchair psychologists who theorize that she’s working out “mommy issues” by dating the former “Two and a Half Men” star, 75, are barking up the

'Roseanne' Cast Is "Utterly Wrecked" Over Roseanne Barr's Racist Tweet (Exclusive)

In retrospect, Roseanne Barr was a ticking tweet-bomb just waiting to go off. She’d made offensive remarks on Twitter before, but when she suggested that Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett was the child of the "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes," the reaction was swift and severe. ABC immediately canceled her show, even though the reboot of her hit 1988 to 1997 sitcom had been one of last season’s highest-rated series. The network’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said Roseanne’s remarks were "repugnant and inconsistent with our values." The move may have cost the network up to $60 million in advertising revenue — and dozens of cast and crew members lost their jobs. Still, some of Roseanne’s co-stars publicly supported the move. "I am disappointed in her actions, to say the least," wrote Sara Gilbert, who spearheaded the revival. And Sara’s TV daughter, Emma Kenney, applauded the Disney

Could ‘Roseanne’ co-stars get a sympathy hug at the Emmys like Jon Cryer (‘Two and a Half Men’)?

Could ‘Roseanne’ co-stars get a sympathy hug at the Emmys like Jon Cryer (‘Two and a Half Men’)?
The abrupt cancellation of “Roseanne” on May 29 was a dire blow to the Emmy chances for the high-rated sitcom revival. In the eyes of Emmy voters, the whole project may be tainted by star Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweets. But the cancellation of the show also put her co-stars and crew members out of work. So is it possible that residual goodwill for John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert and company could boost their Emmy prospects even as Barr’s stock has dropped? It worked for Jon Cryer.

Cryer co-starred in “Two and a Half Men” with Charlie Sheen, but that CBS sitcom was thrown into turmoil by Sheen’s drug addiction and conflict with series creator Chuck Lorre. Sheen abruptly departed the show after seven seasons, his character was killed off, and Ashton Kutcher joined the cast in his place.

But it also led to a promotion of sorts for Cryer,

‘Roseanne’: No Revivals, No Frankenshows — Just Let It Die

‘Roseanne’: No Revivals, No Frankenshows — Just Let It Die
The swift cancellation of “Roseanne” on Tuesday was shocking. But the stunning speed at which it happened — ABC insiders said it went from tweet to cancellation within three hours — is what made it so effective.

Even some of the people most impacted by the decision — Carsey-Werner’s Tom Werner, showrunner Bruce Helford, star and executive producer Sara Gilbert — applauded ABC’s actions.

As a matter of fact, very few outside of Roseanne Barr and her loyalists protested — even when Donald Trump finally commented, it was about himself, not about whether ABC was wrong to fire Barr.

This was a clean break. But two days later, talk of reviving “Roseanne” or building a new show around the remaining stars is muddying the waters.

Meanwhile, Barr’s early attempts at apology have been destroyed as she becomes even more indignant on Twitter — the social media tool that got her fired, despite her

Stay tuned: Roseanne Barr will be punished at the Emmys next

Stay tuned: Roseanne Barr will be punished at the Emmys next
It hardly seems fair that the Emmy hopes of “Roseanne” collapsed so soon after its star’s Twitter meltdown. Sure, Roseanne Barr’s own racetrack odds for Best Comedy Actress dropped drastically overnight at Gold Derby – from 22/1 to 80/1 – as Experts like me and Pete Hammond pulled her from our predictions in the wake of her scandal, but now it looks like co-stars John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf will be skunked in the acting races, too.

Most tragically of all: “Roseanne” will probably fail to be nominated for Best Comedy Series just like it got shunned throughout its original nine-year run even though it was the number one-ranked TV show in America for a few years and won the Golden Globe and Peabody. Not even to be nominated!

Many Emmy pundits like me believe there’s a good chance Robin Wright will make the list again for Best Drama Actress once

'Roseanne' Was a Good Liberal Show, Says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has condemned Roseanne ... while praising her sitcom as a "very good" liberal show -- and is now questioning if canceling the program was really the right move. Kareem says his immediate reaction to Roseanne's tweets was to "punish her" by taking away her show -- and notes Disney and ABC "cut off the rotting appendage before it infected the rest of the body." But, when thinking it through, Kareem says it's important to
