‘Westworld’: Stars, Producers Talk Season One Surprises at PaleyFest
Fans of HBO’s “Westworld” weren’t the only ones fascinated by the show’s continuous twists and turns. During Saturday’s PaleyFest session at the Dolby Theater, stars of the fantasy drama revealed that they were kept in the dark throughout the production process on season one.
Ed Harris, who plays the mysterious Man in Black, got a big surprise early in during filming.
“I walked by my trailer and someone told me that Jimmi (Simpson) was the guy playing the younger me and I was like, ‘What?’ ” said Harris.
Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Dolores, had just as much fun as many fans guessing what potential storylines for rest of the season would be.
“One of my theories was that Arnold was at the center of the maze or that all of our human versions were going to be locked in there! I didn’t know Bernard was a host when we were doing our »

I. Marlene King Says ‘the Majority of People Will Be Happy’ With ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Finale
Nostalgia and anticipation filled the air at the Dolby Theatre Saturday afternoon at the “Pretty Little Liars” panel for PaleyFest La. In front of a rowdy crowd, Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, Tyler Blackburn, and almost all of the show’s stars sat down for a discussion about the Freeform drama’s seven-year history, while also looking forward at the series’ final 10 episodes, which begin airing next month.
The event started with a sneak peek at the first minute of the final season and then proceeded with a moderated conversation with the cast and two producers. The conversation, peppered with impromptu scene-readings by cast members, focused mainly on the long journey they had all taken with the show. The actors, who reunited after finishing shooting in October, shared stories about when they were cast and the friendships that developed on set.
Benson, who sat near the middle in between Mitchell and Blackburn, revealed »

‘Big Little Lies:’ Laura Dern’s Mom Thinks Her Daughter’s Character Is too Cruel to Reese Witherspoon
Laura Dern and Reese Witherspoon developed a friendship while working on the 2014 film “Wild” together, and are currently starring as high-class enemies on the HBO limited series “Big Little Lies.” But Dern has revealed that playing the antagonistic role has upset her mother, who loves Witherspoon’s charm.
Speaking to The New York Times, Dern revealed that her mother, the iconic actress Diane Ladd, was shaken by the performance.
“My mother called me—and she’s an actress—and goes, ‘You didn’t prepare me for what a bitch you are,’” she said. “I’m like, ‘I didn’t know I was supposed to prepare you for any character I play!’ And she said, ‘Yeah, but you’re a bitch to Reese.’”
Witherspoon’s mother was also disturbed by the show’s vitriol. »

First Image of Michael Keaton in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” as The Vulture
This past weekend was a fun time to be around for Spider-Man: Homecoming hype. We were treated to a few new posters including the official poster for the film. With around 3 months to go before the film releases I think we can officially say that the hype for the movie has commenced. So in order to keep the balling rolling on the Homecoming hype what better a way to continue than to share the first picture of the film’s villain? This picture of Michael Keaton as The Vulture was released only a few short hours ago. Here’s a little

‘Buffy,’ ‘Community,’ ’30 Rock’ and More: TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes and How Well They Worked in Song and Dance
Musical TV shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” or “Glee” have a built-in understanding with audiences that bursting into a song or dance is part of the storytelling. When it comes to non-musical series, however, staging a musical number or episode can be a more challenging when it comes to finding an organic way to work it into the plot.
Recently, The CW’s superhero show “The Flash” and Syfy’s fantasy drama “The Magicians” dipped their toes into the world of musicals. “The Flash” tapped a character called Music Meister (Darren Criss) to knock out Kara and Barry (Melissa Benoit, Grant Gustin) and send them into an alternate reality, where they had to sing and dance their way to finding solutions. Music Meister, a super villain who could control people through music, has already been introduced in the DC Universe via animated series “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” (and voiced »

‘American Horror Story’: Sarah Paulson Wants to Reprise Her ‘Coven’ Character
PaleyFest La wrapped its week of TV panels with FX’s “American Horror Story: Roanoke.”
Executive producer Brad Falchuk revisited his original interest in the concept of “Roanoke” during a Q&A on Sunday at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
“Even before the show, we were always fascinated by it. It’s one of the few American mysteries so it was always in the back of our head. It was nice to have something that had just a kernel of truth in it and we could fill in whatever we want,” said Falchuk.
“Every season we’ve always tried to do something different. We really wanted to be as scary as possible. I wanted to beat the hell out of the cast in a different way,” he added.
Sarah Paulson, who played three characters during “Roanoke,” including reprising “Asylum’s” Lana Winters, compared this season to her previous ones on show.

Ghost in the Shell Releases Official Final HD Trailer
We’re only a few days away from the official premiere of Ghost in the Shell. At this point I think I’ve seen everything I can possibly see. From as recently seeing the first five minutes of the movie, to learning about Scarlett Johansson’s robotic suit in the film, I think we’ve gotten an excellent sense of what to expect. Personally I think the film will be a success but that’s based on me watching the first five minutes of the movie. Here’s the thing. It’s tough to dethrone Scarlett Johansson as the action queen of today. We’ll see if Gal

J.K. Rowling Tweets Heartwarming Mother’s Day Messages in the UK
The only movie that ever came out documenting the life of J.K. Rowling was in 2011 and it’s called Magic Beyond the Words: The J.K. Rowling Story. It’s an inspiring look at Jk Rowling’s rise to become one of the most influential writers-from her humble beginnings as an imaginative young girl and awkward teenager to the loss of her mother and the genesis of the Harry Potter phenomenon. However, don’t you think it’s time for a feature film? While the TV movie was decent I have a very simple proposition here. Get a solid director, have Emma Thompson star as

How Better Call Saul is Great at Making You Question Right and Wrong
One of my favorite things about any show featuring a really twisted or bad character is when that show makes it nearly impossible for you to hate that character. If you’ve ever watched Dexter it was impossible to root against Dexter. When you think about it, it’s so twisted because he’s a serial killer and yet you’re rooting for him to kill people because the people he kills are “bad people.” But isn’t being a serial killer bad? Of course it is! But that show is crafted so well that you pretty much think Dexter is a good guy. The

Deadpool Makes a Post-Credit Logan Appearance in Fan-Made Scene
As many of us know, comic book movie trailers have practically become their own subset of movies. Not only are feature films hyped to no end, but the trailers themselves get announcement dates and are even rated by the majority of movie goers. Personally I like a good trailer but it has zero effect on my anticipation of a movie and it never will. It got me into trouble in the past and I have no doubt could get me into trouble now. Another set of movie clips that are starting to gain steam are the post-credits scenes. Often

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Deleted Scene Where Chewbacca Rips Off Unkar Plutt’s Arm
It’s not often you get to see Chewbacca express his rage physically. While he’s super protective of Han Solo (and now Rey) we’re used to seeing him just make sounds and almost being a “gentle giant.” However, there was a scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens when Chewie finally loses it and does something we’ve only read about. In a scene where Unkar Plutt and Rey are arguing, Chewie gets enraged and decides that Unkar Plutt’s arm isn’t worth saving. Frankly I think there are two points of view on this scene and here they are. One the one

The Bold and the Beautiful is back for a week of twists and turns. Bill is considering making a crazy decision in his own life, and we suspect it has everything to do with Brooke. He loves her, and he’s unwilling to let her go. He will not allow her to make the kind of decisions she’s making, which basically means he’s not going to sit back and allow her to marry Ridge.

Days of Our Lives spoilers tell us this is the week Steve and Kayla find Steve’s long-lost son, Tripp. It will be a happy reunion for a moment, but it turns out it’s not going to go on that way after Tripp asks about his mother.

Instagram User’s Shadow Looks Exactly Like Rihanna Silhouette
I don’t feel that Rihanna’s guest spot as Marion Crane in Bates Motel got enough press. I’m not saying she was that great an actress but I will say she looked fantastic coming in from the rain. Who knows how often we’ll get to see her on the big screen but personally I’d like to see more of her. Anyway, that’s got little to do with the picture you see above. It must be weird if you’re lying in bed taking a selfie and all of a sudden Rihanna decides to show up right next to you. That’s what happened

Rome – Expanding Qatar-based telco Ooredoo and Starz Play Arabia have forged a partnership to launch Ooredoo TV Go, an on-demand streaming service to which Starz Play will provide more than 6,000 hours of mostly Hollywood shows in eight markets across the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia.
The deal, the financial terms of which were not disclosed, will also give Oooredoo the content cornerstone for launching an Ooredoo TV Go app, in the first step of a planned multi-channel, multimedia Ott service.

Kaitlin Olson Auditioning for the Part of Dee in Always Sunny in Philadelphia
There are only a few shows on television that I would put in the “We take it for granted” bracket. These are shows that are still hilarious or of extremely high quality but they’ve been on so long that we’re practically immune to them at this point. My picks for these shows are The Simpsons, Southpark, and Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I think that The Big Bang Theory is eventually going to land in this bucket as well but they’re not quite old enough. Simpsons and Southpark have over 20 years in so they’re easy but Always Sunny has got
