Said to be one of two finalists for the role last week, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke has won the role of Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot. Deadline has the news, reporting that Clarke joins the already-attached Arnold Schwarzenegger with Jason Clarke nearly set to play a later version of Sarah Connor's son, John Connor.
The first in a stand-alone trilogy, Terminator will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are attached to write the screenplay.
Alan Taylor, who has previously worked with Emilia Clarke on the hit HBO fantasy series, is directing the new film, which is slated to hit theaters July 2, 2015.
Episode 5.01 – A Murder of Crowes
(Airs January 7, 10:00 pm e/p)
In the swamplands of Florida, Raylan tangles with a deadly branch of the Crowe Family Tree, while Boyd goes into the dark heart of the collapsing Detroit Mob. Written by Graham Yost & Fred Golan; directed by Michael Dinner.
A list of the world’s ‘hardest working acts’ by gigs played and miles covered has been compiled, with Kendrick Lamar coming out top in the hip hop genre and Local Natives proving the most prolific band in terms of shows.
The data was compiled by concert listings website Songkick, with LA-based band Local Natives being found to have played a staggering 188 shows, which works out as more than one every two days.
Lamar traveled the biggest distance meanwhile, the success of his Good Kid MAAD City album sending him on a worldwide tour that included dates in London and a US tour with Kanye West.

He was also the hardest working artist of the festival season, having performed for 2760 minutes across 46 festivals, amassing an estimated 870cm of artists’ wristbands.
The Mercury Music Prize-winning Alt-J led the Brits on the list, playing 164 gigs this year.
Imagine Dragons, Foals and Macklemore & Ryan also featured on the list, while surprise appearances in the top ten included nu-metallers Papa Roach and 80-year-old country star Willie Nelson.
*Technically Local Natives did the most shows but Kendrick is the top individual to do the most shows this year.
The stunt double suing News Corp in the United States says that a U.K. compensation scheme set up by the company has been "unfair" to victims and that U.S. courts should have an opportunity to address the "increasing threat to privacy."
Eunice Huthart, who worked as a stunt double for Angelina Jolie on the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and is in the midst of suing News Corp for allegedly intercepting her voicemail messages, has given a California judge a few reasons why her lawsuit belongs in California.
Among them are the locations of those who might be called to give testimony.
"Some of Plaintiff’s potential witnesses who are involved with her and/or [Huthart's company] Pump Fitness, such as Ms. Jolie, are located in California."
Huthart brought the wiretapping lawsuit in June. It's the first claim brought by a victim in the U.S. over the ongoing hacking scandal that has haunted News Corp (as well as 21st Century Fox, which after a corporate split will be footing the legal bills over hacking allegations.)
In her complaint, Huthart says she developed a close relationship with the actress and is a godmother to Jolie's first biological child, and thus became a person of interest to Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator who worked for News of the World. She alleges that NOTW journalists and Mulcaire had her cellphone number and its voicemail PIN code, and intercepted her messages in order to learn juicy gossip about Jolie and Brad Pitt.
In September, News Corp responded and demanded that the case be transferred to the U.K., where some 600 phone hacking claims were proceeding under a voluntary U.K. compensation scheme or in the English High Court. To make the case for judicial economy, News Corp threw out some numbers.
According to the company's legal papers in the Huthart case, "The compensation scheme has been extraordinarily successful at delivering satisfaction to applicants: it has received 611 inquiries from individuals alleging they were victims of voicemail interception, of whom 426 applied to join the scheme, resulting in 359 being invited to join the scheme, and 272 settling their claims thus far. Not a single applicant to date has seen fit to take his or her case to a hearing."
Huthart's lawyers aren't impressed. In fact, they basically respond that U.K. phone hacking victims aren't seeing justice at all.
"No claimant has proceeded to a hearing, not because applicants are satisfied with the compensation scheme, but because [News International] controls the scheme and decides whom to accept into it," say Huthart's attorneys. "This is not a sign of success. …This system is unfair to claimants and effectively prevents claimants from having their day in court and from getting to the bottom of Defendants' wrongdoing toward them."
Huthart believes that she can establish the requisite contacts and conduct in California such that the lawsuit makes sense to adjudicate it there. She says that the defendants' interest in her voicemails "derived entirely from her personal and professional relationships to celebrities, such as Jolie and Brad Pitt, which are a product of her Hollywood-based career" and that the damage she experienced was to "her professional reputation within the California-based television and film industry."
"Because she did not receive messages," the complaint continues, "her professional reliability was compromised, and because confidential information from messages on her voicemail was published, her discretion and trustworthiness were compromised."
Presumably, Jolie could testify about some of that. (The actress' lawyers could potentially fight against her testimony.)
And as to what might be the biggest reason why the dispute belongs in California, Huthart's legal papers say that the case presents serious questions about fundamental rights of privacy in the United States.
According to her legal papers, "In the digital age, where technologically advanced companies pose an increasing threat to privacy, federal courts have the opportunity to establish a body of law through the [Stored Communications Act] and the [Wiretap Act] that guards against invasions of privacy. Shifting such cases to foreign courts would not only risk jeopardizing the uniformity, reliability, and strength of U.S. federal privacy law, but would also invite foreign persons to engage in the sort of phone hacking at issue here."

Feuding heartthrobs? In the Dec. 20 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Wahlberg reveals that he used to have a feud with Leonardo DiCaprio. The 42-year-old actor, formerly known as Marky Mark, said he almost didn't get cast in 1995's The Basketball Diaries because DiCaprio wanted him off the court. Read about other weird celebrity feuds here.
"Leonardo [DiCaprio] was like, 'Over my dead f—--ing body. Marky Mark's not going to be in this f—--ing movie,'" he recalled.
Wahlberg admitted that he deserved that treatment. "Because we'd had a thing -- I didn't even realize it, [but] I was a bit of a d--k to him at a charity basketball game," he admitted. "So he was like, 'This f---ing a--hole is not going to be in this movie.'"
But Wahlberg managed to impress the Growing Pains star with his acting chops. "So I come in and I do the audition and I kind of look at him and he kind of looks at me," he recalled. "And then we do a scene, and they're like, 'Hmm, this f---ing dude's pretty good, right?' The next thing you know, boom, we're hanging out."
Wahlberg isn't the only star who has had beef with DiCaprio over a basketball game. In the December issue of Esquire, George Clooney recalled playing the game with the Wolf of Wall Street star and his allegedly loudmouthed posse of friends.
"The thing about playing Leo is you have all these guys talking s--t," Clooney, 52, said. "We get there, and there's this guy, Danny A I think his name is. Danny A is this club kid from New York. And he comes up to me and says, 'We played once at Chelsea Piers. I kicked your ass.'"
But it was the Gravity actor who ended up winning the game. "The discrepancy between their game and how they talked about their game made me think of how important it is to have someone in your life to tell you what's what," Clooney told the magazine. "I'm not sure if Leo has someone like that." (His rep later clarified the remark to Us: "The Leo comments made by George were all made in fun about basketball. Not about Leo's life.")
Leo talked about this right before the movie was released and I always wondered what it was that made him dislike Mark. lol at it being another basketball game. I see a theme here...
Yesterday in Dubai, the reigning queen of black-and-white looks and severe buns graced the red carpet at the Oxfam Charity Gala in her signature style. Though her color choices weren't surprising, Mara still stunned in a custom white Lanvin gown, complete with dramatic structural cloth petals on one shoulder, that outlined her sleek, hourglass figure. She swiped the darkest shade of berry onto her lips, making them look Goth black from certain angles, pulled her hair back into a tight bun, and then smized her heart out — because Ice Queen Rooney never cracks an actual smile.
Rooney Mara: 'Her' Premiere with Sister Kate Mara!
The 28-year-old actress was joined at the event by her older sister Kate Mara, 30.
Earlier in the day, Kate‘s television series House of Cards received four nominations from the Golden Globes, including Best Television Series – Drama. It is up against Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, and Masters of Sex.
FYI: Rooney is wearing a Givenchy coat and shoes. Kate is wearing a J.Mendel dress with a Charlotte Olympia clutch and heels.

GOT cast makes fun of Joffrey
5) Makes Sansa Look at Beheaded Father:
"Or maybe he'll give me yours."
Okay, Joffrey has done a lot of terrible things. So many...It was a challenge to whittle it down to just five instances of barbarity. If he's not ripping out a local songsmith's tongue, he's threatening to kill a man by bursting his stomach with alcohol. You know, typical Tuesday.
However, this is simply not the way to woo a lass. Can Sansa ever really heal from the emotional wounds of not only seeing her father killed in front of her, but then being forced to look upon his severed head? Probably not.
Joffrey's such a total, nasty wuss that he can't even do his own Sansa smacking. Not that you should smack a lady. You should not.
He's the worst.
4) Whore Meet Crossbow:
Okay, Littlefinger also gets a little bit of credit on this one for giving Ol' King Fetish the "A-Ok" to go ahead and rob Westeros of its favorite lady of the night, Ros. Joffrey had already proven himself to be a sexual sadist, but he elevated to "kill for the pleasure of it" Ted Bundy levels when he practiced his crossbow shooting...on Ros' chest. This is what happens when you inbreed, people!
Alright, in life we'll concede that ordering the murder of scores of innocent men and children is worse than the execution of one man. But c'mon! Ned Stark was the series protagonist that first season, the moral center of the show, and Sean Freaking Bean. This one hurt. A lot. It still does. It's right up there with Red Wedding levels of emotional scarring for the viewer. His Evilness lied to Sansa and his mother about being merciful, and with that one act, essentially ignited the War of the Five Kings. Said war would lead to mass slaughter and eventually...the aforementioned Red Wedding.
If only there were a way to tear Joffrey's head off and make him look at it.
Larry Kramer’s Tony award-winning 1985 play The Normal Heart—which details the ominous spread of HIV/AIDS among a group of gay men in 1980s New York City—is finally getting a movie adaptation on the small screen. Directed by American Horror Story and Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy, Heart will premiere this spring on HBO and features a star-studded cast including Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, and Taylor Kitsch (below, in a photo Ruffalo tweeted out this summer).
“It’s a movie about AIDS, but it’s also really a civil rights movie,” says Murphy, who worked with Kramer on the script for three years. “I think it’s more timely than ever before. It’s really about the quest to be seen, not as a gay person or a straight person but just a person…. It’s an activist movie that also has a really great love story in it.” Adds the director, “Of everything I’ve done in my career, I think it is the biggest labor of love.”
When Beyonce’s fifth album arrived surreptitiously Friday morning at midnight, it was without the aid of an advance single, marketing campaign, radio airplay or TV performances. But now that it’s out and setting iTunes ablaze with a weeklong, album-only exclusive, which of the album’s 14 tracks will get the single treatment?
Starting next week, it will be two -- the Pharrell Williams-produced “Blow” at Top 40, and the Jay Z-assisted “Drunk In Love” at R&B/Hip Hop, starting next week, according to multiple sources who confirmed plans to Billboard. “XO,” a rousing ballad penned by Ryan Tedder and The-Dream, will follow later in 2014 as the second single at Top 40. Not that what just happened is about one song -- even to radio programmers, many of whom started playing “Beyonce” in its entirety on Friday.
“Beyonce is bigger than a single. Beyonce has created a movement,” says Reggie Rouse, VP of urban programming at CBS Radio and program director at V-103 and WAOK in Atlanta. “We’re featuring every track this weekend on V103. We put up all 17 video clips on our website. We're doing a blog on Beyonce. She just kills it. She is the standard. Beyonce made every radio station, blog, TV station react to what she did. Jay by himself is great, Beyonce by herself is great. Together? There’s nothing like it.”
So how did Beyonce keep the project so secret? Lots of code names, for starters, and a shifting deadline that wasn’t finalized until a week ago. As Beyonce stated in a video announcing the album on her Facebook page, the plan all along was to release everything all at once -- 14 songs and 17 videos -- as a surprise. “I miss that immersive experience," she says, of watching music videos like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as a family, as a mass event. "Now people only listen to a few seconds of a song on the iPods and they don’t really invest in the whole experience. It’s all about the single, and the hype. It’s so much that gets between the music and the art and the fans. I felt like, I don't want anybody to get the message, when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans."
According to multiple executives involved with the project who spoke with Billboard under condition of anonymity, the album really started to take shape in its current form in late October, as Beyonce started narrowing down songs that fit the more minimalist approach. Previously previewed songs “Grown Woman” (featured in a Pepsi commercial) and “Standing On The Sun” (featured in an H&M spot) were soon removed from the tracklist, though “Grown Woman” is featured a bonus video-only cut. Beyonce was still working on the vocals and production until the week of Thanksgiving, before producers started being notified of their final cuts.
Then late last week, final meetings were held with Columbia, Parkwood (Beyonce’s management company) and iTunes to finalize plans for the album, which was code-named “Lily” to avoid leaks. Another final meeting announcing the album to employees and producers was held at Columbia yesterday, Dec. 12. Only the most senior executives at iTunes, the album’s exclusive distributor until a planned physical release on Dec. 21, were clued in on the plans.
Streaming services will start having access to the album next week, but one service -- Songza -- already started promoting the album on Friday. Under the same guidelines that radio follows, Songza was able to purchase a copy of “Beyonce” off iTunes and upload it to its airwaves just like a Hot 97 or a KISS-FM could on Friday. By Friday afternoon, Songza had started pushing out a “Beyonce”-themed playlist called XO and began integrating the album’s tracks into its pop and R&B playlists.
Elias Roman, CEO of Songza, credits the early access to “Beyonce” to “the beauty of the internet radio license,” which is unlike DMCA-compliant services like Rdio, Spotify or MOG. “If this would have leaked there was no way we would be able to play it, neither would Z100,” he says. “As long as we legally acquire the content, we can play it to our users.”
As for promo plans, Beyonce is in the midst of wrapping up the U.S. leg of her Mrs. Carter Tour, which plays Chicago tonight (Dec. 13) and comes to New York’s Barclays Center next Thursday (Dec. 19.) Though plans were still being finalized, a screening event featuring a theatrical presentation of the 14 videos was being prepared.
