ET/PT on HBO.[via: Entertainment Weekly] “Not only losing it but having that being given to the other side.”Yet, with her plans to meet with the Lannisters moving forward, she doesn’t have much time to mourn. Posted August 23, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongDaenerys Targaryen has good reason to mourn, but Emilia Clarke found some humor that her character hasn’t.Warning: There are spoilers from “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 6, “Beyond the Wall,” ahead.Saving Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the rest of the men on his mission to capture a wight came at a cost for Daenerys. Daenerys, Jon, and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) have other immediate concerns, even as sad and terrifying as the idea of her dragon fighting for the Army of the Dead is.The “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. In the battle, the Mother of Dragons lost one of her fire-breathing children, Viserion. Although her character was devastated by the death, Clarke found something to laugh about. While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actress pointed out how fitting it is that the dragon now aligned with the enemy is the one named for her scheming brother Viserys.”Of course it’s the rotten egg,” she said, “of course you’d turn.”That said, Clarke recognizes how awful Viserion’s death is for her character, who has repeatedly referred to her trio of dragons as her children over the years.”It’s a heartbreak,” she told EW.
And that is only the start of her nightmare.”Since election night, it has just all been getting so much worse,” she tells her therapist.”The recurrence of the coulrophobia?” he asks, referring to her fear of clowns.”Yes, the clowns,” she says.Her paranoia doesn’t look unwarranted. Whatever they are up to looks twisted and terrifying, as you’ll see below.”American Horror Story: Cult” premieres Sept. There is also a creepy new character named Kai (Evan Peters), who seems to be in cahoots with Winter. Her family’s new nanny, Winter (Billie Lourd), brings her son a Twisty the Clown figurine, and we see the character from Season 4, “AHS: Freak Show” pop up again. The one-minute trailer starts with election night and the horrified reaction of Sarah Paulson’s character, Ally, to Donald Trump’s victory. Posted August 23, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongAnd so it begins again: The first “American Horror Story: Cult” trailer is here, bringing plenty of scares.Ryan Murphy has long been teasing that Season 7 of the FX horror anthology would incorporate the 2016 election, and now we finally have a better idea of how. 5 on FX.
Along the way, it has inspired an animated short (the utterly charming “Frozen Fever”), several Disney Parks attractions (the best of which is Frozen Ever After in the Norway pavilion at Epcot) and appearances on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.” But that’s just the beginning — there will soon be a Broadway musical (currently in previews in Denver), a full-fledged sequel (with a tentative release date of November 27, 2019) and a brand-new holiday special debuting this Christmas alongside Pixar’s “Coco.” And by all indications this special, called “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” is going to be pretty special.Earlier this summer, at the D23 Expo, Josh Gad sang one of the new songs from the special (written by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson) on stage and it was a hoot. “We really wanted to make sure that it was not only in the world but furthered the world of the characters. “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” premieres with “Coco,” opening nationwide on November 22. Even Kristoff has a legitimate song,” Conli revealed.One of the biggest thrills for the producer, though, was getting to work with the cast (everyone is returning for the special). “The cast of that film — what a delight!” Conli said. This is a somewhat diminutive person. The Disney animated feature, released way back in 2013, made more than $1 billion at the global box office and won the Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“Let It Go”). “We, being me and Stevie Wermers and Kevin Deters, who directed it, joked that they’ve become the holiday experts,” Conli said. And it was like, This is why she’s a star.””Born in China” hits Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 29. It’s really cool. Chaos, inevitably, ensues. Kristen and Idina were incredible. It looks very cute.We were down at Walt Disney World a couple of weeks ago speaking to “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” producer Roy Conli about his work on the gorgeous Disneynature film “Born in China” (out on home video next week) and had to ask him what we could expect from this latest “Frozen” romp.”Well, first of all, they’re going to get four new songs, which are wonderful,” Conli said.He then admitted that he was uneasy about coming aboard such a beloved franchise: “I came onto this a little concerned because you’re taking one of the crown jewels.”Still, he’s got a crackerjack team behind him, including directors Stevie Wermers and Kevin Deters, who created the “Prep & Landing” Christmas specials for Walt Disney Animation Studios and ABC. (They have!)Clearly everyone involved wanted this to be special and to really advance the overall “Frozen” story. “Josh Gad is a really amazing performer. Posted August 23, 2017 by Drew Taylor”Frozen” is a phenomenon.There’s just no getting around that. You see a side of the ladies that you didn’t see in the film. We sat, slack-jawed, when Idina came in. You get to know Olaf a little bit better. The special is concerned with Anna and Elsa, who, with a newly free and open Arendelle, are able to celebrate the holidays for the first time in forever (see what I did there?) So it’s up to Olaf to find the best holiday celebrations.
And in the best-case scenario, like the adoption of Randall, it works out.Sniff! In the clip, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) tells mother Rebecca (Mandy Moore) that his plans to adopt another child have hit a snag. I was tired and I was grieving, and he just kept pushing me.Rebecca goes on to explain that while her marriage wasn’t perfect, and Jack wasn’t perfect (nearly, but not totally), sometimes one partner has to push the other. It seems wife Beth is a bit hesitant.When he asks Rebecca how she and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) decided to adopt him, she thinks back to that fateful day three decades ago.”I said no,” she confesses, as we see a flashback to Jack and Rebecca standing outside the nursery ward. 26. “But your father was so sure.

He previously wrote one episode of “Game of Thrones” in each of the first four seasons. Age does not add enthusiasm.” But since then, he’s concentrated on finishing “Winds of Winter,” the six novel in his epic fantasy novel series.Also, perhaps Martin doesn’t want to be influenced by events on the show, which have now outpaced his books.”The book series and TV adaptation go their separate ways,” he noted. “In addition, I have not become younger. Oh … “On the screen, characters are killed right and left. I was working on the first book for six years and four years on the second one,” he said.

Like us on Facebook. 27 at 9 p.m. These come via Watchers in the Wall, which got them from DNA India.The Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) photo, and the one of Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) at the Dragonpit, were already posted to HBO.com, but the others are new, teasing tension between Jaime and Cersei, while also showing Jaime back with Bronn (Jerome Flynn).Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) is hopefully coming up with some kind of plan to save his sister Yara, who was captured after Theon literally jumped ship on her when they were ambushed by Uncle Euron.Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) is hopefully working up to some new visions, perhaps even giving us a flashback to the title characters.There are no photos yet of Arya and Littlefinger at Winterfell, or of Jon Snow and Team Dany at the Dragonpit in King’s Landing, but you can certainly see the Dragonpit crew in the Season 7 finale trailer, posted below the photos.Here’s the Season 7 finale trailer:”Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 7 will be about 80 minutes long, the longest ever, and it will be the final episode of 2017. Posted August 23, 2017 by Gina CarboneCersei looks mad, Bran looks intense, and Theon looks sorry for all of his life choices in the first photos from the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale, Episode 7, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”This first batch of pics is a bit of an early surprise, and HBO will probably release more later.
And when Sophie says she won the Battle of the Bastards, she’s right. Like us on Facebook. 27 at 9 p.m. But I love the fact that the tables do turn back and forth between them; it really is a shifting back and forth of power between them in those scenes we had. 27.Alan Taylor directed Episode 6, “Beyond the Wall,” and talked to the Huffington Post about the Arya/Sansa tension thus far, and where it goes from here:”I think both characters have been through absolute hell since the death of their father in very different ways, and have turned into absolute lethal individuals. I think he likes it. They love each other but they’re so different. There’s all kinds of mixed things going on with Littlefinger and that relationship with Sansa. But he puts himself on the line like a good gambler.”This fool should’ve fled Winterfell the second Bran told him chaos is a ladder. Arya still sees Sansa as a snooty prissy child that she was before she left for King’s Landing. He puts himself in a situation that could backfire on him. With carefully laid plans there’s always a bit of risk involved. They never really got along. No. There’s a big lack of communication. However, actor Aidan Gillen knows his character is walking a fine line, and his plan could “backfire” at any moment. They don’t really talk about what they’ve gone through. It’s like a f*cking horror movie.”You know who’s loving this? on HBO.Want more stuff like this? And now that they’re back together that’s heightened because they’ve gone down totally different paths and have had to adapt to totally different situations to the point where they don’t see on each other’s level. Arya could’ve killed Sansa at any time, but she handed over the dagger that Littlefinger had given Bran, that Bran gave to Sansa. There are powers much greater than his machinations in play here, and he has to know a short-term win here can never be a long-term gain. Would Sansa kill Arya? Here’s what Gillen told EW:”Watching my plan come to fruition is quite something. […] Arya is certainly lethal and sort of threatening, but when Sansa sends Brienne away, who is Arya’s natural protector, something is coming very soon between them, and it will be violent but surprising.”If one of them were really to die, would he drop that spoiler? This whole thing is frustrating — we just wanted a happy Stark family reunion!Sansa actress Sophie Turner is the one who compared this tension to “a f*cking horror movie” in a talk with Entertainment Weekly:”In the books, it says something about how Arya and Sansa are different sides of the same coin. Between Bran’s emo omniscience and Jon Snow eventually returning, what’s his end game?The Season 7 finale airs Sunday, Aug. His plans are never fail safe. Sounds like he just wanted to leave that impression. I love the fact that these two come back, they’re both lethal, and I just wanted to give the impression, as much as possible, that one of them is going to die.

There’s this underlying tension. We’re very aware of how lethal Arya is, because she’s displayed it over and over again. But you’re not sure which one. So watching her grow in stature is quite enjoyable. They never really had that communication before, and now when it’s vital to do they don’t have that and can’t understand each other. Littlefinger.

Everybody loves him. It’s a goofy, funny, bloody blast. You don’t even know if he’s going to survive the next five minutes after the movie ends.And I’m so proud of the ending of this film. There’s no precedent for a glam rock demon working in a movie before this. I don’t know what it was.But I did hear that, in some earlier versions, Warner Bros. The only thing we knew we couldn’t do really well was the facial expressions — the mouth, the eyes, and stuff. (And it’ll also be his last movie for a while; his next feature is “Godzilla vs. But it probably wouldn’t have been that. In this version, Light (Nat Wolff) is a pouty Seattle teen and Ryuk is now a creepy, porcupine-y weirdo with the voice of Willem Dafoe. He’s the modern king of the midnight movie and “Death Note” is another wonderful addition to his resume. I’d kind of gotten out of anime by the mid-2000s or I wasn’t keeping up with it as much. So with the movie trying to figure out what part of this were we taking from? And the first time they watched the film they specifically talked about how much they loved that chase scene, which was really surprising but cool.Was there one aspect that was particularly hard to figure out in the adaptation?Yeah, I would say that the whole thing was particularly challenging, just in terms of trying to encapsulate the story. Ultimately, it was pretty clear early on that trying to summarize the whole thing into one movie would be a diluted mess, especially because “Death Note” goes through so many crazy things as the series goes and all of the crazy characters who show up later. It’s a very topical thing, it deals with a lot of interesting themes about good and evil and the grey area in-between. What are the differences? Kong” next and that’s a solid two and a half years. At the very least there’s not a terrible hurry. They understood what we were doing. Some spoilers follow.Moviefone: In the press notes, it says that your brother was the first person to introduce “Death Note” to you. But these things, you never know. Gus Van Sant, I think, was the last director before me who was attached, which is surreal. It’s also proof that the summer movie season hasn’t lost momentum, it’s just moved into your television set.I was lucky enough to talk to “Death Note” director Adam Wingard, who is one of the most talented genre filmmakers working today, having already made “The Guest,” “You’re Next,” and last year’s underrated “Blair Witch” reboot. As someone who has never seen anything “Death Note”-related before this, I can tell you that it’s an obscene amount of fun. They had tried versions when they had tried to cut him out of the movie. But “Death Note” itself is an interesting property. So we’ll see if everything goes well and Netflix orders more, we’ll see if timing works out and what their ideas are. So this was a fun way to return to form on that, to approach it with a different eye. How does that change the backgrounds of the characters? We were preparing to do that anyway at Warner Bros. And sometimes that was all you need.”Death Note” premieres on Netflix this Friday. But this is all stuff based on real or perceived as real things that are going on beneath the surface here. So my approach to this was keeping that in mind. They said, “Yeah I keep telling them the script would be perfect, you’ve just got to get rid of Ryuk.” I said, “What are you talking about?” It’s ridiculous now when you look back on it because Ryuk is the main selling point of the movie, in terms of marketing. It still needed a lot of work once I came on but it didn’t feel like I needed to go back. But I think what this film is setting up is that this character is going to go in a downward spiral to see a character go through that over the course of a couple of movies would be super fascinating to watch, especially since we end this in a place where he’s totally wrecked.That’s true! That was the whole thing with this one, What happens to “Death Note” when you set it in Seattle, Washington? We were able to light the character with confidence, because even if he’s in silhouette you’d see his eyes. There are so many different tonal things that we could have done with it and avenues to take. How often do you see a comic book movie where all of the heroes are totally f*cked?I was going to ask if you’d be interesting in directing future movies in the franchise.I’d absolutely love to. I’d love to have seen if his version was just Light and Ryuk walking through the desert for an hour and a half like “Gerry.” That’d have been the best movie ever. It allowed us to get Willem Dafoe and give him a really cool platform. That’s really what drew my awareness. “Gerry” is one of my favorite movies. Considering that, in addition to the manga, there have been animated series and movies in Japan.Yeah, I think there’s even a musical I heard about. This is really an exploration of taking a different approach to “Death Note.” The creators were always fully behind us on that. Posted August 23, 2017 by Drew TaylorIn Japan, “Death Note” is something of a phenomenon.It began as a manga (comic book series) by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, first published between December 2003 and May 2006, it is the tale of a young man named Light who gets gifted a book that will allow you to control life and death simply by writing inside of it. Even as we were leaving Warner Bros., there were still some junior executives there who came up to me and they were totally serious and said it in a way that made it seem like I’d agree with them. They just wanted to make sure that Ryuk was the right size but for the most part they gave us free reign to do it. It’s one of those things that’s been fully explored and fully translated and adapted in very specific ways to the original source material. They were all things I wanted to do.Can you talk about bringing the demon to life? That’s what enlightened me to “Death Note” specifically, but if you had asked me in high school what my favorite film was, I’d have told you “Ninja Scroll.” That was one of my main obsessions growing up. was nervous about Ryuk in general in the film. The manga series was never designed as a movie; it was very much a serialized thing. So we looked at this as an origin story with the idea that there are potentially two more films, at least that’s how I pitched it to Netflix, to continue the story. I think for the next chapter Light should be a couple of years older anyways. When Netflix picked it up, I convinced them to hire my writer. I was actively working and knew there were a whole lot of notes of what I wanted to do in terms of another draft. I think they liked it for that reason.Even though “Death Note,” for instance, isn’t associated with any kind of action, and this film is by no means an action film, we do have a really cool chase sequence at the end of the movie. (The fact that it’s given to him by a spiky demon name Ryuk should tip you off to the moral nebulousness of this proposition.) The original manga would inspire everything from a long-running animated series to several live-action films to a Broadway-style musical but it hasn’t reached western audiences … At the very least, I want to be involved in the writing process of it. I think Light’s character starts in a much more altruistic place than he does in the manga. My brother had mentioned the project to me years before I got the script sent to me. There was never a mandated change of any kind from Netflix. Because it felt like this script was going in the right direction. That’s probably because I come from a low-budget indie background, and I’m so traumatized by the idea of having bad VFX in my movies.On those other films, when you can’t afford it you just don’t do VFX because there’s no assurance that it won’t look schlocky. Kong.”)During our conversation we talked about what drew him to the property, what challenges were involved in adapting the material, if anything changed when the production moved from Warner Bros to Netflix and whether or not he’d be back for more installments. Being able to explore that in a way that allowed me to create an ultimate genre mash-up at the same time is a chance that is irresistible.Was it hard to find new stuff to do with the property? But it also plays as a closed loop as well.I think this film says everything it needs to say but there are a lot of explorations to do with the characters. Because they’d spent so long working on all of these different versions, the producers never offered it up and I never asked honestly. They were perfectly happy to pick up where we were and shoot that version but the changes were all self imposed. [Laughs]Did anything change when you moved from Warner Bros. That was another offer I couldn’t refuse. It was about keeping him in front of the camera as much as we can. until now.The live-action American remake of “Death Note” will premiere on Netflix this Friday and introduce an entirely new audience to something genuinely beloved in other parts of the world. But what made you want to take it on as a filmmaker?Adam Wingard: I’ve always had a fascination with anime in general. Because it seems like it was a combination of a character on set plus motion capture for the face.I think my process was in response to the approach of the Japanese live-action films, where he was a much more fully realized CGI character. As you probably know, I’m doing “Godzilla vs. Tonally, it fluctuates between bloody horror and arch comedy (and everywhere in between). L is now part of this clandestine mind control background, which is a much more ominous place than where he came from. But even the actor on set was wearing these LED glasses that would represent where Ryuk’s eyes are. I’d like to pick him up a little bit more down the line and see how he’s developing and what everybody’s been up to and all that kind of stuff.Not only have their been countless iterations of this property in Japan, but an American adaptation has been worked on for so long.Yeah, that’s true.Did you look at any of those earlier versions, like the Shane Black draft he’d submitted at Warner Bros?No, I didn’t. I talked to people about it. I really wanted to do something where he felt more tangible — he was on set and interacting with the other actors and the lighting and all that stuff. to Netflix?We picked up where we left off.
I’ve just completed this movie and there’s all this excitement around it and then Joel introduces me to Clint. You know, he’s looking at me and I think he said this could work. It was me and Teri Hatcher, it was a low budget movie, I did it and I was happy with the performance. Says, “Robert is the guy that kicks the living crap out of Arnold Schwarzenegger in ‘T2.'”Clint stuck out his hand, he looked at me and he shook my hand, he went, “Well, that’s certainly a … His charisma was infectious, just like it is with everybody. Rob Lieberman was like, “I don’t believe that’s the guy from ‘T2’ — that’s not the same guy that played the Terminator. You know, I just can’t wait for people to see it. It’s kind of like you’re introduced to the world as a bad guy — “Is that the only way people are going to see me? A horrible, horrible story.Ironically enough, because it’s such a brother story, my real-life brother composed the music, and he was the former guitarist of Nine Inch Nails, went on to become a platinum, multi-platinum recording artist himself with a band called Filter. It resonated with me on so many different levels. No, that’s a different guy!” “No, that is me.” “That’s you?” So things started rolling. The character’s iconic, the actor’s not. It’s a story of a father who raised three boys while he was locked up in prison on double murder charges — two life sentences for a murder — and of his domineering personality, of his charisma, of using his own boys to break out of prison, their love and loyalty that he develops from prison, with the help of his god-fearing wife played by Heather Graham.And then once they break him out, the betrayal by my own brother of not providing me with the things that he was supposed to provide me with to allow me to escape to Mexico according to my plan. How can it be that I get such a great opportunity but then no one wants to hire me, I mean, I did the job too well? It was like a year and a half before I could get some work. I don’t know.”So, on the one hand, I couldn’t walk around anywhere without people recognizing me, on the other hand they had no idea who I was. I was on unemployment. I think he did a beautiful job with the music. Still hadn’t read the script.There were no sides [of dialogue] or anything, it was just, “Let me see you move,” and I did all this stuff and it’s essentially what you see in the film, funny enough, so my instincts were right. Arnold Schwarzenegger is an amazing, amazing American success story. Tell me about the upside of having an early role like that be so huge, and tell me where you pushed against it and tried to like not just be pigeon-holed into doing that over and over again.I’m going to give you a big answer, from a philosophical point of view as a 58-year-old man who looks back in time and says, “What was it like?” It’s interesting because I was a total unknown, then all of a sudden I’m known — but I’m not known, the character’s known. All these successes, all these wonderful things that he’s done. What have I got to do?”I gained some weight and I grew my hair long and I kind of got depressed about it. It just motivated me to do better.Your character in “T2” became almost instantly iconic, and I’m sure that it changed your life and changed your career. I am a monster. It’s very compelling. Just, you know, trying to wrap my head around it.I was just having moments where I was sitting there going, “Oh my God, Terminator — Jesus Christ. I had done “Die Hard 2,” it was coming out and I was just trying to maintain a positive attitude and hope that something great was going to fall in my lap.And all of a sudden I got a call from my agent saying, “Listen, you’re going over to James Cameron’s production office and you’re going to meet [casting director] Mali Finn and all we know is, is that they’re looking for an intense presence. How can that be? Here I am, this big-eared kid — well, I was a 30-year-old man, but I’m green as green. I love the comedic aspects of it. You can do this.” I literally walked into Jim’s office after reading it and I set it down on his desk and he took his glasses down, he looked up at me and he said, “Yes?” “I can do this.” He said, “Robert, that’s why you’re here.” There we go. I can’t wait for people to see it, and it is very disturbing. You’re going to go toe-to-toe with him in his most famous role.It was not lost on me, the importance. They were saying, “Okay, now, we want you to create this intense presence, you’re this killer. He came in from Austria. Will they ever see me, because I could be a love interest. God knows when you watch the news right now, if we need anything right now, we just need some fun and some entertainment.You’ve played many good guys like since “T2,” but it looks like you’ve got another epic bad guy coming up in a movie we’re going to see next month, “Last Rampage.” Tell me a little bit about finding a new big-screen bad guy persona.Well, this is probably the darkest character I’ve ever played in my life. That’s not me. I really wanted it to work for him as much as I did for me. It was disturbing to me when I watched it. I love the chemistry of the cast. How did this happen? People weren’t going to hire me. formidable task.” It just so struck me because here’s one of my screen idols and I’m meeting him and the way he put it, it was just awesome.You’re an unknown guy, you’re going against a No. What was happening in your life?Robert Patrick: Oh, I was just a broke actor doing an Equity-waiver play over on the Santa Monica Pier. It’s just, it’s fun. Clint Eastwood. There’s more to me than that. I’m so, so thrilled to be on “Scorpion” and I love making it. In the ’90s, he had a big song, “Hey Man, Nice Shot, Take a Picture”. So it’s weird. You go out there and fight for whatever you can and hopefully, you know, the chips fall where they can.Now, as I look back, I’ve had a really, really good run. I essentially looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger did in the movie, I was wearing black jeans, black t-shirt and a biker jacket from the 1950s, like the one Marlon Brando wore in “The Wild One.” I went in there, and they wanted this intense presence. 1 guy, and he’s a guy you admired your whole life. [Producer] Cassian Elwes actually cast me in a movie, “The Cool Surface,” and I had long hair. I followed his body building career. I’m excited for people to hear it. I’ve had some wonderful movies, and some wonderful opportunities, and I’ve worked with some great people. We were off and running, baby.It’s no small feat to play an adversary equal to Arnold Schwarzenegger at that moment in time, at the height of his movie stardom. It was right before I hook onto the back of the car and all this kind of stuff. They had a physical idea of what they wanted the guy to look like, and my agent told them that I was a cross between David Bowie and James Dean — that’s how he described me.I walked in wearing all black. What was the fun of creating that relationship with Arnold onscreen, and also the relationship you had with Arnold when the cameras weren’t rolling?I’m going to tell you a funny story: when the movie was done, Arnold invited me to an art thing, a wonderful event, and Joel Kramer, the stunt coordinator from “T2″ brought me over to meet Mr. I could do this …” You kind of battle yourself and go, “How do I create an opportunity in another way?” So I don’t want that to sound like I’m not grateful, because I am hugely grateful and I know the only reason you’re talking to me is because of that movie. I wanted to be an equal, if not more powerful adversary. It was like the only thing I was getting offered was, “Go play another robot, or go play another you know cyborg.” And I was like, “I can’t do that.”I remember I got a Budweiser commercial offered — to sell Budweiser as T-1000. Art movies, and exploitation-type films. I did this one trick with him, where he put the camera behind me and it was back of my head, and I snapped around and looked right down the barrel of the camera as intensely as possible. You can’t take it too serious — it’s just pure entertainment. He broke his leg, so he physically couldn’t do it. You try to get a good studio film here and there, and you do your battle as an actor. It’s very, it’s so complex — of family loyalty, betrayal, you know. That’s not who I am. He’s a bigger-than-life guy. I go on this rampage where seven people are murdered. It created a vacuum then, they needed to recast him. Every day going to work is fun. I look for something I can really sink my teeth into and take me into a whole other direction, and this just fell together.God I’m really, really proud of the movie. And I guess that’s the thing that Jim most reacted to, and he went, “Wow, that’s pretty intense!”I think that audition perked his interest and the way I looked, I was real lean and I had those big ole ears. 25 (followed by 3D and 4K home video editions due in October), Patrick joined Moviefone to reminisce about the role that launched (and still, in many ways, defines his prolific Hollywood career), including fond memories of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger and a candid reflection on having to step out of the shadow of the larger-than-life role — as well as enjoying his good guy role on “Scorpion” while readying to release his new film “Last Rampage,” which he suggests may be his scariest bad guy since his Terminator days.Moviefone: Tell me what life was like when the movie first kind of tripped your radar and you were going in to audition for it. My wife was working three jobs. Everything that’s come after is a result, but you know, it has its challenges.One of those results is “Scorpion.” As you’re coming into a new season, what’s been kind of exciting and challenging to continue to be a part of that series?Oh, I love being a part of this series! How did I get here?” The pressure was mounting and I thought, “Oh God, Jesus, don’t choke. We have a really, really unique chemistry. That’s kind of how I approached it.Now, he was very forthcoming with you know, “Atta boys,” and pats on the back, and in one particular sequence I remember running out of the Pescadero State Prison and I was running through the parking lot. So when I’d walk into an office to get another job, it wasn’t happening. It’s a wonderful thing, it’s certainly something that I’m really thrilled to be doing right now. You’re a sense-aware kind of a being, and let’s see you move around.”So I fell back into some actor trick-y kind of things, and started thinking like, “How do I do that?” All right, so I start thinking about the animal kingdom and I start thinking about bugs, and I was thinking like cats and predators and eagles and sharks, and how do they move? The grind of TV is a challenge in itself, but I love it. Total juxtaposition from what you do for the majority of the year. Posted August 23, 2017 by Scott HuverRobert Patrick has played nearly 150 different roles in film and television since 1991 — including high-profile turns in “The X-Files,” “The Sopranos,” “True Blood,” “Walk the Line,” “Spy Kids,” and his current hit TV series “Scorpion” — but none of them have been as enduring and instantly iconic as his breakthrough performance as the T-1000 in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.”With audiences getting a chance to revisit “T2” in a new 3D release hitting AMC Theaters on Aug. He was, very impressed with my commitment and very, very forthcoming with appreciation for that. It was a big deal to me. He’s watching me do this sprint, he’s watching me do this stuff over and over and over, seeing me jump and dive and roll and all this crap, and I see the big thumbs up coming from the car. I slowed everything down and I started moving and I just started moving around, trying to convey that.He videoed it and I could tell he was pretty excited about it. It was a big deal. This series has so many challenges for me. I’m so grateful for the success. It’s all about me trying to get my freedom.When you go on hiatus from the show that you do 10 months out of the year, where you’re playing a good guy, you got the heart of gold, and you’re a good guy that leads a team of geniuses and takes care of them. Mali sat down and I started trying to figure out, “Well, how do I create this intense presence?” So I just decided I was going to try to kill her with my blue eyes.I started staring at her, and she looked away, and she looked back and she said, “Oh — whatever you’re doing right there, I want to get that on film.” They took me and they, Steve Quail, who’s now a director, was Jim Cameron’s assistant at the time — he got a video camera and they started filming me. This is so close. He does one of his first film compositions. You only get access to material after other people that are up on the food chain that are bigger and more powerful pass on it — they get access to the quality stuff and you got to kind of sift through there and find what you can and make a living as an actor. I did that movie for Paramount, for Rob Lieberman, “Fire in the Sky,” and things started rolling.You’re an actor, you’re trying to make a living, you only have access to material that people are going to provide you. All the way through the movie I didn’t want to let Jim down, I didn’t want to let Arnold down. What was that whole process like?Well, it’s funny, but I find all this out: Billy Idol was originally cast in the T-1000 role, but he had a motorcycle accident. He’s rough around the edges. Good luck.”You had some good luck! It’s a true story. How was the audition? So I would do some direct-to-video movies, and what I would call art movies. It’s hard to explain — we’re all so uniquely different and the writers have really found a way to write for us.I just love my role of a curmudgeonly old guy that still gets in there and fights for his kids and has values, and he’s got a heart of gold. It’s just a performance. What the f*ck?”Then I got a movie. What I did on those audition days was essentially what they were looking for and the next day they called me and said, “We’re going to let you read the script, you’re going to do a screen test in the cop uniform.” It took me, like, five hours to read the script. I wanted him to look good. And I said, “I can’t do that. It’s great fun and you enjoy it, then you get this free time where you try to fill it creatively with something completely at the opposite end of the spectrum. I came back, I got a call that night, they said, “Jim saw your video and wants you to come in and work with him.” I went in and worked with him and he was just great because he was like in this creative free for all of him throwing out all these ideas. And I thought to myself, “God, is this a f*cking fluke? I walked into [director] Rob Lieberman, and I auditioned for “Fire in the Sky,” I got that role. “Who is that guy that played that part?

Posted August 22, 2017 by Gina CarboneThe first contestants cast for the Fall 2017 “Dancing With the Stars” Season 25 have at least two things in common: 1) They are both reality TV stars, and 2) They are both planning weddings.According to Entertainment Tonight, Drew Scott of HGTV’s “Property Brothers” is joining the cast, and People added that WWE wrestler Nikki Bella, star of E!’s “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas,” will also be competing.Drew got engaged to longtime girlfriend Linda Phan in December.From the first moment I met Linda, back in 2010, I knew she was special. So we can expect to see Jonathan in the audience, at the very least, if not also in rehearsals for some friendly trash-talk.
Like us on Facebook. 27 at 9 p.m. on HBO.Want more stuff like this? Now Arya and Sansa are tense to the point of death threats. We can only expect the tension to get thicker in the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale, which airs this Sunday, Aug. Posted August 22, 2017 by Gina CarboneIf only the Stark sisters got along this well on “Game of Thrones” Season 7.This priceless video has an entire sequence with GoT stars Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) shouting “Becky, Becky, BECKY, look at her butt!” in Sean Bean’s Ned Stark accent.The Ned Stark version of Sir Mix-a-Lot comes after Turner’s surprisingly good Ned Stark version of “Hakuna Matata” from “The Lion King.”It’s all part of “Carpool: Karaoke: The Series,” an off-shoot of the popular segments on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” This 3-minute video is an extended preview of the GoT BFFs’ episode, which fans can watch in full tonight at http://applemusic.com/carpoolkaraoke.Watch the preview:At least Ned’s daughters are close in real life.On Season 7, Arya just came back to Winterfell and her reunion with Sansa was less than warm.
And, of course, there’s still the grief from Dany losing one of her children, a literal dragon. (ET/PT) on HBO. 27 at 9 p.m. Does anyone really think she’s going into that White Walker meeting with an open mind?Also, don’t forget that the tantalizing quote from the second GoT Season 7 trailer has yet to be spoken — Sansa Stark saying, “When the snows fall, and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.”This is the only episode left for that particular quote to be spoken, and it’s not exactly a great time for it, since Sansa and Arya are in a tense standoff at Winterfell, thanks to the chaos of Littlefinger.So instead of just seeing “The Dragon and the Wolf” as about Dany + Jon, we have to expect Rhaegar + Lyanna to get involved in the Season 7 finale, and also learn the context of Sansa’s mysterious (although book-rooted) trailer quote. Maybe Sam is going to somehow catch up to what Gilly said back at the Citadel about Rhaegar annulling his marriage to Elia Martell and marrying Lyanna.There’s also still another level to consider. You’re right. Posted August 22, 2017 by Gina CarboneThere’s the obvious meaning, then several layers of hidden meaning, to the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale title.HBO just revealed the Episode 7 title themselves — sending out a super-brief press release — along with the exact running time:The final episode of GAMES OF THRONES’ current season is titled “The Dragon and the Wolf,” and debuts this SUNDAY, AUG. Please no!The GoT Season 7 finale airs Sunday, Aug. 27 at 9:00 p.m. The total running time is 79 minutes, 43 seconds.It was already revealed that the finale would be the longest-ever episode at 80 minutes, but HBO wants you to know it down to the second.But that title. But think bigger. Maybe Bran Stark is about to have another vision. Pre-production has already started on the final Season 8, whose six episodes start filming in October, for a premiere whenever HBO feels like scheduling it.Want more stuff like this? He’s half-Wolf, and half-Dragon, as Drogon could tell you by now.And maybe someone else is about to tell us, or even show us?*POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD*We’ve been expecting Rhaegar Targaryen to make a flashback appearance in Season 7, and this would be the only time left. Like us on Facebook. Perhaps it’s time for us to get a glimpse of the love story of The Dragon and the Wolf, even as we see their son falling in love with a Dragon himself. on HBO. Perhaps this title is more about R+L than anyone? The wolf in sheep’s clothing. On that chilling note, what if the title follows that dark direction, and the loss of a dragon is followed by a loss of one of the only direwolves left? Cersei Lannister? “The Dragon and the Wolf.” You’re thinking Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow. Jon is the Dragon and the Wolf, child of Dragon Rhaegar Targaryen and Wolf Lyanna Stark.

Other reports have claimed that Johansson’s Black Widow and Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye are together on the set, along with two of the film’s villains.”By the way, there is an official title for “Avengers 4,” but it’s too spoilery to reveal at this point. While she’s not in her Black Widow costume in the photos, it is worth noting that she has arrived just following the construction of an elaborate Japan set for the film.
“Also, out of respect for the character of Donna — and certainly the way that Erinn Hayes portrayed her — it seemed like the only right and fair way to treat her character.”We’re not entirely sure Hayes would agree with calling the situation “right” or “fair.” But the actress has so far stayed relatively mum on the subject, tweeting her thanks to fans for their support back in June. She’s since booked the lead on an upcoming Amazon series, “The Dangerous Book for Boys.”CBS execs confirmed Donna’s upcoming demise during a panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour earlier this month, noting that the event would be handled “with dignity and respect.” Season two of “Kevin Can Wait” debuts on September 25.[via: TVLine] According to Long, Donna’s death will drive the plot for season two of the sitcom, and there way no way around that sad storyline with the new vision for the show.”The goal was to give Kevin’s character a real drive and a real predicament [involving] how a family comes back together [after tragedy],” Long told TVLine. Now, one of the show’s producers is defending that turn of events, as well as the shocking decision to have Hayes’s character, Donna, killed off, rather than just written out of the show.In an interview with TVLine, “Kevin” executive producer Rob Long explained that killing off Donna was meant as a show of respect to Hayes, who played the titular character’s wife. Posted August 22, 2017 by Katie RobertsEarlier this summer, actress Erinn Hayes was fired from CBS sitcom “Kevin Can Wait” after star Kevin James’s former “King of Queens” costar, Leah Remini, joined the cast for its upcoming second season.

It will debut following the 10th season premiere of the flagship “Drag Race” series, set for sometime in the spring of 2018.”All Stars” doesn’t have a return date yet for season three, but is expected back in early 2018.[via: Variety] They are giving everything and you’re not going to want to miss it!”According to Variety, producers have been pleased with the show’s transition to new home VH1 (“Drag Race” originally debuted on Logo before jumping over to sister network VH1 for the season nine premiere earlier this year), and are looking to expand its fan base even further with the continuation of “All Stars,” reintroducing existing fans to favorite former contestants, while also winning over a legion of new devotees.”The massive swell of new and longtime fans of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is nothing short of incredible,” said Pamela Post, senior VP original programming and development at VH1, in a statement to Variety. “We are motivated now more than ever to ensure ‘Drag Race’ remains a shining example of inclusion and community, as well as fierce fashions and legendary lip-syncs.”In addition to “All Stars,” after show “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked” will also be back, returning to the airwaves after a stint as an online-only offering.
Taylor doesn’t mind fans checking the math. “It’s cool that the show is so important to so many people that it’s being scrutinized so thoroughly.” Posted August 22, 2017 by Kelly WooMany “Game of Thrones” fans have been a bit perturbed this season by the apparent discovery of teleportation in Westeros, with characters jumping across the continent in the blink of an eye, and Sunday’s episode seemed egregiously fast.In what felt like a few hours, Jon and his Fellowship of the Wight had trekked north of the Wall, a zombie polar bear attacked, the Night King’s army found them, Gendry ran back to the Wall for help, a raven flew to Dragonstone to deliver that message, and Daenerys arrived with her dragons.Alan Taylor, who directed “Beyond the Wall,” admitted the timing is “a little bit hazy.””We tried to hedge it a little bit with the eternal twilight up there north of The Wall,” he told Variety. “I think there was some effort to fudge the timeline a little bit by not declaring exactly how long we were there.”He was aware that fans would take issue with Gendry becoming a track star and what seems to be the fastest raven in Westeros.”They seemed to be very concerned about how fast a raven can fly but there’s a thing called plausible impossibilities, which is what you try to achieve, rather than impossible plausibilities,” he explained. “So I think we were straining plausibility a little bit, but I hope the story’s momentum carries over some of that stuff.”And one Redditor figured out that the timing is entirely plausible.
Actor Giacomo Gianniotti, who plays Andrew DeLuca, says the new season is “funnier, it’s sexier, it’s lighter.””We’re going to have fun this season,” he told TV Line.As he explained, the sho has “been dreary for a long time.” Yeah, between McDreamy’s death and Lexie’s death and Mark Sloan’s death — it’s a wonder that anyone is still alive in Seattle. “Also, a lot of the men are single now, so we’re going to explore what that dynamic is like.”Ooh, there hasn’t been a good bromance since Derek and Mark!”Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14 premieres Sept. on ABC. 28 at 8 p.m. Posted August 22, 2017 by Kelly Woo”Grey’s Anatomy” has been breaking our hearts and causing us to go through a million tissues for 13 seasons, but Season 14 has a new prescription: fun. “There’s just been a lot of separation and loss, so we want to show the characters having some fun,” Gianniotti said.
