Remembering Bill Paxton, Hollywood’s Scene-Stealing Everyman
A prolific actor, Paxton appeared in a range of films including “Titanic,” “Aliens,” and “Twister.” He recently starred in the Canadian coming-of-age thriller “Mean Dreams,” and he will also appear in the Emma Watson-Tom Hanks thriller “The Circle,” which will be released in April. Paxton also held a lead role as Detective Frank Rourke in the CBS crime-thriller series “Training Day,” which paid tribute to the star in a recent episode.

The effort, coordinated Sunday by Spotter Network, spelled out "Bp" to honor the leading man in the disaster movie Twister, which inspired a generation of storm chasers.
Storm chasers and storm spotters have spelled out the initials of fellow chasers in the tight-knit community four or five times before, but never for a non-chaser, said John Wetter, president of Spotter Network, a nonprofit that tracks the positions of...
Using their Spotter Network markers, hundreds of storm chasers and weather fanatics lined up to Paxton’s initials across the infamous ‘tornado alley’ in Kansas and Oklahoma in a heartfelt ode to the late actor.
Paxton starred in the 1996 disaster classic “Twister” in which he and Helen Hunt lead a team of lovable scientists on a dangerous mission to gather more information about the deadly cyclones. The movie went on to gross $241 million worldwide and became the second-highest-grossing movie of 1996 behind “Independence Day.”
Paxton went on to make the IMAX documentary “Tornado Alley” and often spoke about his fascination with the weather phenomena having grown up in nearby Texas.

Thursday’s Nashville left its devoted fans hanging on quite the steep cliff: As the episode’s final moments played out, we were left unsure of whether Rayna was alive or dead what Deacon’s real first name is.

Though diehard viewers had spent four-plus seasons thinking that they knew everything about the complex Mr. Claybourne, Rayna dropped an (admittedly minor) bombshell during her tense interaction with the
If you’ve got candles, Nashville fans, now would be a good time to light ’em.
Because Rayna Jaymes, the First Lady of Country Music and keeper of Deacon Claybourne’s heart, survives an attack by a crazed stalker in this week’s episode… only to be involved in a terrible car crash in the hour’s final moments.
It doesn’t look good for Rayna as the episode closes, and that preview of next week’s installment isn’t very comforting, either. And I don’t care how
TVLine can exclusively reveal that the Cmt drama will air its midseason finale on Thursday, March 9, at 9/8c.

No word yet on when the season will resume.

Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Israel, Russia, China and Switzerland are among the more than 30 territories that will be represented alongside the superpowers of North America and the U.K. at an extra-long table. The gathering is so large that there’s a microphone and a nameplate with country flag set out for each participant.
The brainstorming and information-sharing sessions will be held largely in English, although there will be side conversations among smaller groups in numerous native tongues. Coinciding with the annual MipTV international sales conference, the group will spend a few days talking shop, screening projects and generally arming themselves with the latest market intel.

No, that’s not the set-up to a really questionable joke; noted naturalist Paul Rosolie literally served himself to an anaconda during Sunday’s appropriately titled Discovery special Eaten Alive — or, at least, he intended to.
Anticipation for the two-hour event had been building ever since the network announced it in November, but not everyone’s rally cries were of support. The most notable pushback came, unsurprisingly, from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which chastised the entire affair as an act of abuse.
Storm chasers are single-minded in their pursuit of danger, willing to risk all for the thrill of the hunt, and in the new movie Into the Storm, Matt Walsh plays just such a character. He’s Pete, a TV reality star who endangers his crew when one of the biggest storms of all time hits the rural town of Silverton.
While the subject matter is serious, behind the scenes Walsh was dealing with a comedy of errors he couldn’t help but laugh at. In the film his fortress on wheels is Titus, a storm-proof tank that can roll its way through anything.
News follows the December announcement that Endemol North America topper David Goldberg was stepping down from his chairman-ceo post after thirteen years with the company.
“Charlie and Cris are world class creative entrepreneurs who have built their respective companies through the creation and production of great, must-watch content during their time within Endemol,” said Endemol Group prez Tim Hincks. “They combine energy, ambition and vision with an understanding of the values that define Endemol. We couldn’t ask for stronger candidates to lead our North American operations into a new phase of accelerated growth and creativity.”
Abrego and Corwin have been thriving members of the Endemol family, as their reality production companies — Abrego’s 51 Minds and Corwin’s Original Media — were both acquired by Endemol roughly six years ago.
