The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017
It’s a good thing that Netflix already has the “Gilmore Girls” for all of those sweet Thanksgiving vibes, because the streaming giant is coming down from that Halloween sugar high in a bad way and following last month’s blockbuster slate with a relatively unremarkable roster of new additions. Proving that there isn’t much rhyme or reason behind when they’re able to upload new movies (it’s hard to curate around contract rights), the platform’s latest batch of titles is heavy on horror movies and light on seasonal fare.

Still, it’s not all bad news for those of you who might be looking for something to stream while you’re home for the holidays. Comfort watches like “Casper” and “Field of Dreams” are perfect things to put on when you’re immobilized by a stomach full of turkey, and you can even go for an

Exclusive: Thomas Middleditch Puts Physical Comedy on Display on ‘Silicon Valley’ Season 4

Exclusive: Thomas Middleditch Puts Physical Comedy on Display on ‘Silicon Valley’ Season 4
“Shooting anything physical is so funny,” Thomas Middleditch tells Et about filming Silicon Valley season four, which premieres Sunday, April 23 on HBO.

As Richard Hendricks, the creator of a data compression start-up, the actor often had a thankless role to play in the first couple of seasons. While the center of the series, Richard is a constant worrier and very much a straight man to louder characters, such as Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller), an arrogant entrepreneur and partner in Richard's company, and the increasingly zany and subversive Donald "Jared" Dunn (Zach Woods).

But as season three proved with a first-ever Emmy nomination for Middleditch (and season four will expand upon), Richard can be very funny -- especially when the actor gets to put his physical comedy chops on display. Last season, the character was very much at the center of the laughs, thanks

The 20 most exciting Games at E3 2014, and everything that might be wrong with them

The 20 most exciting Games at E3 2014, and everything that might be wrong with them
There were no new consoles at E3 this year, no expensive new peripherals. Nothing, at long last, to distract from the videogames. And what games! The 2014 videogame megaconvention found the three major companies adjusting to a new kind of normal: a kinder-gentler Microsoft, a swaggery Sony, a Nintendo that suddenly realized it was time to throw a Hail Mary on the Wii U. Across the board, there was a sense of experimentation. Major developers iterated old franchises in new directions. Smaller developers made bold splashes with highly independent visions.

E3 lives in a vortex of hype. Most people only get

Beverly Hills Cop TV Series Confirms Brandon T. Jackson as Aaron Foley

Beverly Hills Cop TV Series Confirms Brandon T. Jackson as Aaron Foley
Last month, we reported that Brandon T. Jackson is in final discussions to portray Aaron Foley in CBS' Beverly Hills Cop TV series. Today, we have word that the actor has officially signed on for the coveted role.

The story will center on Aaron Foley, the son of Eddie Murphy's Axel Foley, who is trying to break out on his own merits and escape his father's looming shadow. Eddie Murphy has agreed to return as Axel Foley in the pilot episode. If CBS places a series order, the actor will recur as Axel, now the Detroit chief of police.

Eddie Murphy reportedly suggested Brandon T. Jackson for the role, since he is a fan of the young actor's work, particularly his stand up comedy routines. CBS had previously cast Brandon T. Jackson in the pilot Hail Mary, alongside Minnie Driver.

Shawn Ryan (The Shield, Last Resort) is writing the pilot script,

Sony Pictures Grabs the Rights to Valiant Comic Series Bloodshot

Back in March of 2010, we brought you a rumor about director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) reportedly gearing up to direct the comic book adaptation of the Valiant comic book series Bloodshot as his next film. That seemingly bogus report stated that Vaughan was writing the script alongside Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, The Woman In Black), and fully financing the film himself.

Now, Deadline reports that Sony‘s Columbia Pictures has grabbed the rights to the Valiant comic from a spec script penned by Jeff Wadlow (Hail Mary), and the project will be produced by Neal Moritz of Original Film, alongside along Jason Kothari and Dinesh Shamdasani of Valiant Entertainment.

The Valiant series Bloodshot focused on mob assassin Angelo Mortalli, who was forced into an experimental procedure where his body was injected with nanites that enhanced his strength and skills but erased his memory in the process.

Laurence Fishburne leaving 'CSI': 7 possible replacements

The news that Laurence Fishburne is leaving "CSI" after two-plus seasons took a lot of people by surprise -- but it could end up being an opportunity for the show to reinvent itself a little bit.

When Fishburne was hired to replace the departing William Petersen in the 2008-09 season, it seemed like the right move: When the star of a series leaves, the next move is usually to find an actor of roughly equal stature to replace him. Fishburne, an Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor who hadn't done a TV series in more than two decades, fit the bill perfectly.

For whatever reason, though, Fishburne's character, Dr. Raymond Langston, didn't strike the same chord among "CSI" fans that Petersen's Gil Grissom did. Petersen  seems unlikely to take his old job back full-time, and Marg Helgenberger is reducing her role as well, so the show will be looking for another lead

New TV Season Breakdown: CBS

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fourth announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on CBS.

Still faring well, though not as indomitable as it used to be, CBS made headlines more this year for the antics of "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen than any of its other shows. With Ashton Kutcher now replacing Sheen, the new look 'Men' is staying in the same time slot and you can bet the network is desperately hoping it'll perform as well.

In any case, CBS is actually making some significant changes this year in terms of scheduling. Most notably the new J.J. Abrams series "Person of Interest" is getting the highly coveted Thursday 9pm slot which has been the home of the original "CSI" for the past decade,

CBS fall TV 2011 schedule predictions: 'Two and a Half Men' and a few new shows

CBS made a couple of bold scheduling moves last year by shipping "Survivor" to Wednesday nights and starting a new comedy block anchored by "The Big Bang Theory" on Thursdays.

This year? We're guessing less of that.

The biggest shakeup will come within a show when the network and Warner Bros. TV announce how they plan to reconfigure "Two and a Half Men" post-Charlie Sheen -- and with the news that the show unsuccessfully courted Hugh Grant, any such announcement is likely to be a pretty big one.

As for the schedule as a whole, CBS is once again working from a position of relative success, which means that we won't see more than a handful of new shows in the fall, and most of the newcomers will likely be protected by established lead-ins. Here's our best guess as to what CBS will unveil on Wednesday, May 19. (You can
