David Duchovny to Star in Charles Manson Drama at NBC
Awake alum Michaela McManus, Justified's David Meunier and The Last Ship's Chris Sheffield have boarded the series starring David Duchovny, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The 13-episode drama Aquarius, created by John McNamara (In Plain Sight), is set in the 1960s and stars Duchovny as Sam Hodiak, a Los Angeles police sergeant investigating a then-unknown Charles Manson. McNamara exec produces alongside Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Alexandra Cunningham, Jonas Pate, Melanie Greene and Duchovny, with Pate on board to direct.
McManus will recur as Grace, Hodiak's ex-girlfriend and longtime family friend. She calls Hodiak in when her daughter, Emma, goes missing. Beside herself with worry, Grace is hoping that Hodiak can locate and return her "baby" to her, but she has no idea of the morass that Emma has sunken into.
Meunier will also recur as Roy, a menacing biker with a "personality to match." Manson's minion, not to mention his muscle, Roy backs his diminutive boss up violently when the occasion calls for it.
Sheffield, who next appears in MTV's Happyland, will play Hodiak's son.
They join a cast that includes Grey Damon, Emma Dumont and Gethin Anthony, who will play Manson.
Anthony— who on Game of Thrones played Renly Baratheon — will portray Manson, described here as the “archetypal Authentic Hippie Freak” whose intense charisma draws young followers to him in droves. A jailbird who has spent half his life in prison, Manson dominates his young women followers through a combination of sex, drugs and a paternalistic and caring attitude that masks his inner evil. A dark, seductive force of nature, he recruits young Emma Karn (played by Dumont) to his ranks — but his interest in her may be far beyond the merely sexual. In fact, he may have embroiled her father in a far-reaching conspiracy.
Damon, meanwhile, will co-star as Hodiak’s (Duchovny) new partner — and the two are well-matched in their maverick methods and savvy instincts. He helps Hodiak trace the missing Emma Karn, going undercover himself to learn more about Manson.
Next up for Kristen Stewart in her endless attempts to claw her way out from under the shadow of mopey Bella Swan: The Clouds of Sils Maria. Check out the latest trailer, featuring Juliette Binoche and Chloë Grace Moretz.
The plot, via Indiewire: Binoche is an aging actress, tapped to appear in a revival of the play that made her famous, about an ill-fated lesbian romance between an older woman and a scheming younger assistant-turned-lover. Except she's been booted to the older role, with a badly behaved Hollywood starlet (Moretz) taking her place in the younger. She retreats to somewhere Alp-y to prepare and things get weird with (guess who!) her young assistant (Kristen Stewart).
Binoche looks like a pro, KStew looks better than her glasses would suggest and Moretz looks downright feral. Who's in?
Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader play a pair of estranged siblings who are reconnected at a particularly dark moment for both in the Sundance drama The Skeleton Twins. And, when a depressed Milo (Hader) leaves Los Angeles to live with a similarly depressed Maggie (Wiig) and her earnest, goofy husband (Luke Wilson), it’s not exactly a seamless homecoming, with fights, lies, and past traumas weighing on the once-inseparable twins throughout.
Sundance 2014: Bill Hader can count on Kristen Wiig in 'The Skeleton Twins'
But writer-director Craig Johnson didn’t cast two of today’s most likable comedians to just destroy them with melodrama. There are moments of pure joy, too, including a standout sequence, teased in the trailer, where Milo and Maggie break into a cheesy ’80s classic to ease a particularly tense moment. As Owen Gleiberman wrote after the film’s Sundance premiere, “This is a tenderly sincere, and smart, and beguiling, and penetrating movie about the way that ordinary messed-up people can wind up stumbling through their lives.”
EW spoke to Johnson about directing Hader and Wiig and how that whole Starship sequence came together.
EW: Did you always have comedians in mind when writing this story?
CRAIG JOHNSON: I did. I just gravitate towards comedic actors. I think comedy is harder than drama, and I knew that this movie was supposed to be emotional as well as funny, but I wanted to make sure we had the funny part covered. There’s just a long, great tradition of comedic actors transitioning into more dramatic roles that are really effective. I think of Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine [of the Spotless Mind] or going back to Mary Tyler Moore in Ordinary People. I think there is an element of darkness and sadness that comedians have within them that they access to find the comedy.
How did Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader get involved?
Our casting director Avy Kaufman suggested Bill. At first, frankly, he was not on my radar. I’d only seen him do really broad comedic stuff, but Avy had seen him in a dramatic table read of a movie with Kate Winslet, Bradley Cooper and Paul Dano. She said out of all those actors, Bill was the most heartbreaking and moving and subtle. So I thought, “Wow, OK, I’ll meet him.” We met in a bar and just hit it off. So we brought him in and were talking about the sister character and like a thunderbolt it hit me: Kristen! For a second I thought it might seem gimmicky because of SNL, but then I realized that this was so different than what they’ve done before that the fact that people think of them together as a duo will only help you believe that they’re brother and sister.
Did Hader get in touch with her, then?
Bill stayed out of it. We passed the script to her and crossed our fingers. Luckily they have the same manager and agent and were already excited about the script for Bill, so I think that worked to our advantage.
Beyond Saturday Night Live, Hader and Wiig have a pretty full history of film work together too. Do they have similar working styles?
They do. They are like brother and sister. I just stood in the corner, silent and in awe of these two people when they would just riff back and forth. They would be on set in between takes just going off on bits that were completely improvised, but were just so funny and so quick. It was like they had a shorthand, secret telepathic language with each other. They know each other’s brains so well. What’s amazing is they both were so able to access the emotions so quickly. I think that had to do with how invested they were with each other and their friendship.
There’s a scene where they are fighting at the end of it and there was a point in between takes where Kristen was like, “I don’t know how much more of this I can do because I hate saying these terrible things to Bill!” But that ended up being good for the scene. It made them emotional.
How much leeway was there for improvisation?
The script was very written, but I couldn’t wait for the moments where we could be free with the script. I encouraged them to improvise when appropriate, or when they felt inspired to, and almost inevitably it made what was on the page better. It made it funnier and more natural. In particular, there’s a scene in the dentist’s office and they’re high on Nitrous… I just gave them carte blanche. I just told them to try to make each other crack up.
And then of course there’s the epic lip sync sequence. What’s the story behind that scene?
In the script, it was just one sentence. “She’s in a funk. He tries to cheer her up by singing ‘Hold On’ by Wilson Phillips.” If you remember Bridesmaids, that song actually factors in very prominently and long before Kristen was involved with this movie, my producer saw it and was like “Ugh! They used ‘Hold On.’ We have to find a new song.” So we were in pre-production, like a week or two out, and I didn’t have a song yet and we needed to clear it in order to shoot it as a lip sync, so I spent 24 hours listening to every cheesy mid-’80s ballad you can think of and looking in the mirror and lip syncing it myself.
What’s so great about “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” by Starship is the fact that it’s a duet. Suddenly the scene became a little more epic because it became about Bill’s character getting Maggie (Wiig) to sing Grace Slick’s part of the song. Bill and Kristen were stoked about doing it almost as a production number. We didn’t spend a lot of time on it, but we choreographed it. But I believe in leaving things loose and open once the camera rolls so it doesn’t feel too staged and rehearsed.
Black is a colour that will never go out of fashion. And Gemma Arterton proved this statement to be true as she managed to look glamorous in a simple black coat while dining at the Chiltern Firehouse back on July 10th evening. The 28-year-old kept her look simple but oh-so chic as she was pictured making her way into the celebrity hotspot. The actress wore a black shift coat over her ensemble and added a touch of colour to the look with a pair of metallic gold heels. She added a further amount of glitz to her attire as she was seen holding onto a small shimmering clutch. The stunning brunette accentuated her natural beauty with just a hint of black eyeliner and nude lipstick. She simply accessorised with a pair of pearly stud earrings while her honeycomb bob was left naturally straight.
Bonus: Gemma's new headshot.
This Morning, it appears that Ticketek Australia has updated their site to include a 2015 Madonna tour wait list.
For those of you that don't know. An artist doesn't usually have a wait list through ticketek if they don't have an upcoming show planned.
Rumours have been circulating for some time that Madonna would open her next tour in Australia. The Queen of pop promised Australia the greatest show on earth after the cancellation of the Australian leg of the MDNA tour.

Kim is completely “miserable” in her marriage. After getting hitched in Florence, Italy, in May, Kim supposedly realized that being Kanye’s wife isn’t what she wanted. Radar Online reports that some people feel as though Kim changed since meeting West — and not for the better.
A source shared: “Kim has totally morphed into the person that Kanye envisioned her to be. She’s changed. From demanding Kim overhaul her wardrobe, to forcing her to hang out with his friends, Kanye has just completely taken over her life. Kim doesn’t have any interests of her own that Kanye doesn’t approve of.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West seem to be happy together, but it’s hard to know what’s really going on behind closed doors. Kanye does seem controlling in many ways — and it’s clear that Kim has changed since she met him (especially when it comes to her fashion choices via The Telegraph), but do you think she’s actually miserable?
The source added: “[Kanye] constantly scrutinizes Kim, and she’s constantly walking on eggshells around him. She begins every sentence with ‘Kanye thinks so and so,’ and ‘Kanye wants this and that. There seems to be a lack of playful banter between Kim and Kanye, and laughter. By all appearances, Kim looks like she has it all — a perfect husband, and a beautiful daughter — but the light and joy in her eyes is gone.”
Kim Kardashian has been divorced twice so far. She and Kanye have been together for a couple of years, living with their daughter, North, 1, at Kim’s mother’s house. If things didn’t go haywire between them by now, they likely have serious staying power. So, maybe Kim really is happy… but she doesn’t look happy according to the source: “She tells everyone how happy she is with Kanye, but if that’s true, why does she look so sad all the time?”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Kanye has done his best to provide for his wife and child and shower them with love and pricey gifts to show his affection (remember that huge wall of flowers he bought for Kim on Mother’s Day?). The rapper reportedly spent $2 million on North West over the past year, nearly $500,000 of that money going directly to designer threads for his daughter.
Do you think Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are really happy together?
2014 will go down in history as the year Quentin Tarantino almost made The Hateful Eight.
The filmmaker was bullish about filming another western after his Oscar winning hit Django Unchained—but after a script leak and an ensuing lawsuit against Gawker, Tarantino seemed to cool on the idea. But at a live read of The Hateful Eight script, he announced that he was in the process of redrafting the screenplay–presumably adding in a character named Dick “The Gawker” Denton, who suffers various horrific-but-hilarious limb-removal procedures.
Now it looks like 2015 will go down in history as the year Quentin Tarantino actually made The Hateful Eight. That’s according to Kurt Russell, who took part in The Hateful Eight live read, and who mentioned the movie among his future projects during an interview with Philadelphia’s Fox 29 station.
Russell was on hand to talk about The Battered Bastards of Baseball, Netflix’s new documentary about the Portland Mavericks, an infamously wild baseball team owned by Russell’s father Bing. But when asked about what else he was working on, Russell idly said, “There’s a Tarantino project called Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.”
Tarantino’s usual patrons The Weinstein Company didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for comment, and given that Tarantino prefers to work at his own pace, it’s possible that “beginning of the year” start date could get delayed. Still, good to hear that there’s life in the project.
In case you haven't read the script. Here tis--
A star is born!

When the Australian teenager/young Leonardo DiCaprio look-alike started uploading selfies to Instagram, he caught the attention of several people in the modeling industry. Now Charles' signed to an agency and his career is really taking off. So, chances are you'll see him in the next Abercrombie advertisement or in next month's Vogue.
When Charles started posting photos on social media, it first caught the attention of photographers Michelle Lobb and Richard Sawyer. Both photographers wanted to do photo shoots with Charles, which he agreed to do. After sharing the results of the shoots on Instagram, the pictures were spotted by Jaime McHugh, a model scout from Chadwick Modeling agency. Jaime posted a comment on of Charles' pictures saying to contact him if he was interested in modeling!
After signing a contract with the agency, Charles immediately began working. He's already done four photo shoots! In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Charles said, "I'm finding it kind of strange being in the limelight really, it's pretty awesome and everything - it's a great experience and great way to meet new creative people."
Though Charles' career is taking off, his education is still very important to him, reportedly requesting shoots to be scheduled when he's not going to school. Plus, he's even looking to go to college! Good for you Charles!

On May 16, the Copyright Board of Canada released a long-awaited decision on royalty rates for streaming services. This decision, called Re:Sound Tariff 8 – Non-Interactive & Semi-Interactive Webcasts, 2009-2012, set the rate for commercial webcasters at 10.2 cents per 1,000 plays, while the CBC tariff is set at 13.1 cents per 1,000 plays– a massive setback for the Canadian music community, and for the artists and music companies that invest in their careers.
To put these rates into perspective:
In light of this, the music industry has banded together to show its opposition to Tariff 8. CIMA, Music Canada, ADISQ and CCMIA released a joint statement in support of Re:Sound’s application for judicial review of the Tariff 8 decision. To date, over 70 record companies from across the country have signed onto the joint statement. The list of supporting companies is growing by the hour – and we’ve joined the fight!

The Deadline website reported on Tuesday that screenwriter Dante Harper is currently working with Warner Bros., Appian Way, Mad Chance, and director Jaume Collet-Serra on the live-action Akira project.
Harper recently wrote the screenplay for the live-action Edge of Tomorrow film, which is based on the novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. The film stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley, Kick Gurry, Bill Paxton, Kidus Henok, Tony Way, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
Variety reported last August that director Collet-Serra was possibly rejoining the project, stating that, if he returned, he would direct the project in Spring 2014. Collet-Serra mentioned in interviews in February that he hoped the film would be his next project. Warner stalled the project in 2012 to revise the script so it would be less costly. Akira manga creator and anime director Katsuhiro Otomo was reportedly going to oversee the project as executive producer.
no. nope. let it die.
Northern Irish actor Kristian Nairn has announced a Game of Thrones-themed DJ tour. The man who plays Hodor will be spinning "the deepest house [music] from all seven kingdoms", at a string of club nights throughout Australia.
"For one night only, in every capital across this land, venues will be transformed into the finest halls of Westeros," announced organisers of the so-called Rave of Thrones. Guests have been asked to wear fantasy-themed fancy dress, with those who ignore the dictum risking the wrath of "the Hand of the king".
Nairn, whose bi-syllabic character has become a fan favourite on Game of Thrones, has long been a fixture of Belfast's house music scene. For 11 years, he was a resident DJ at the city's Kremlin club, and that work helped him attract his first movie agent. "[Acting and DJing] is a similar process for me, but with slightly different components," he told Red Dot Diva in 2012. "When DJing, I am definitely trying to keep my mind very much switched on, and for Hodor, it's really the opposite. But [I still want] to be present in the scene, and to react well to what is happening, because I believe Hodor is a great reactor. I don't think too much is planned in his head!"
For his August gigs in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Darwin and Adelaide, Nairn is expected to eschew EDM trends in favour of "chunky, deep, dark" house music. The Australian artist Ego will project visuals to accompany each set, and promoters have promised "a range of surprise guests and garnishings".
Since the premiere of HBO's George R R Martin-inspired TV series in 2011, Game of Thrones has attracted a slew of musical collaborations. Members of Coldplay, the National, Sigur Rós and Snow Patrol have appeared as guest stars, and the Hold Steady contributed a drinking song for the closing credits. Earlier this year, the show's producers released a Thrones-related hip-hop mixtape. With plans for its fifth series now underway, both Lily Allen and Stevie Nicks have expressed interest in writing material for Game of Thrones' soundtrack.
She has yet to confirm the news herself, but there was no denying that Scarlett Johansson is expecting after she was spotted running errands. The 29-year-old was spotted out and about in New York City yesterday and was sporting, what appeared to be, a very obvious baby bump.
As she emerged from her apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Scarlett was displaying a rather round tummy underneath her red and black patterned smock top. The 'Hitchcock' star was dressed for comfort and teamed the tie-dye top with black leggings and a pair of leopard print clogs. She accessorised her look with a pair of dark sunglasses and a black leather handbag as she tried to go unnoticed whilst running some errands.
In case she felt the cold in the Big Apple, Scarlett draped a beige jacket across her shoulders and was without her fiancé Romain Dauriac as she headed out.
The happy couple - who have been dating since November 2012 - are no doubt busy preparing for the arrival of their first child. Although neither of them have announced the happy news, in May of this year, Pete Yorn, who Scarlett collaborated with on 'Break Up' stated that she is "very pregnant". It's unsure just how Scarlett will be able to avoid questions about her impending birth as she promotes her new movie 'Lucy' which hits UK cinemas on August 22.
There’s something about a case, drugs and Paris in the following three clips from Lucy. Oh and the featurette is pretty cool too. As always, steer clear if you want to go in fresh, otherwise enjoy. They insist she opens the case, I mean it can’t have anything dangerous in it, right? The dozen armed guards with shields are there just admire Ms. Scarlett Johansson, nothing else.
Scarlett Johansson changes her hair’s color in an instant, with a dozen eyes on her and absolutely no one freaks out? I guess out there in Taiwan they have seen everything.
At this point I can safely say that if there’s one thing Luc Besson doesn’t lack, it’s imagination. Also, if Scarlett Johansson says she’s going to drive, then you better let her do that and get out of the way. A lot of cars flying in this one.
And here’s a featurette going behind the scenes of Lucy.
You know, this might not end up being a very good movie at the end of the day, but man do I want to see it. There’s just something about Scarlett Johansson going all Neo, and having Luc Besson direct (and write) pretty much guarantees a good time.
Starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, Luc Besson's Lucy is gearing up for its July 25 release with solid buzz out front. Universal is currently full throttle in a confident, to-the-point marketing campaign with the film's promos showcasing a high concept story and Johansson's physical prowess.
Besson, writer/producer of the Taken films, is no stranger to the action genre. As a major part of Liam Neeson's most iconic role in recent years, he helped give the star a whole new platform to master. Besson's more hands-on approach with Lucy (which he writes and directs) could have a similar effect for Johansson--already a growing staple of action flicks thanks to her turns as Black Widow in three Marvel films to date, including what is so far 2014's top domestic earner (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Between it and The Avengers, her box office street cred has improved significantly among both men and women. Media coverage of Johansson's pregnancy with fiancé Romain Dauriac rounds out the brewing perfect storm for Lucy's awareness.
As an original movie, Lucy could expand upon that drawing power even more. This summer's been filled to the brim with pictures that have underperformed or, at least, failed to genuinely impress at the domestic box office. 2014 isn't the first year that's happened, but historically it's a precursor to fresh concepts and/or non-sequels inspiring higher-than-typical demand from moviegoers.
Other than simply moving away from a competitive month of August, that observation may have been on Universal's and EuropaCorp's minds when pushing up Lucy's North American release from August 8 to July 25 two months ago. Realizing the need for a prominent female-led summer release was another likely factor. Internationally, Lucy will still open in staggered fashion throughout August and September (including a special, overseas-only IMAX release on August 8).
Social Media Builds a Case
Lucy's Facebook page added an incredible 426,000 new fans between June 14 and July 14, and has gained a stellar 64,000 today (July 15) alone. In all, the film boasted over 730,000 "likes" at the time of this story's publishing. For a movie with no built-in audience, those are very impressive signs. In contrast, Transcendence added 19,000 fans during the comparable period (for a total of 132,000). Flixster anticipation and Twitter activity further support the odds of Lucy cementing sleeper hit status.
July 25 will also see the release of Brett Ratner's Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson. The audience overlap between it and Lucy could hold each movie back somewhat, but despite Johnson's proven star power in recent years, Lucy is quietly becoming a strong contender to steal more of that film's potential viewers. Hercules hasn't been a slouch on the social media front either, and we'll continue to follow each respective pic's trends as the competition for next week's box office heats up. If word of mouth for Johansson's actioner takes off, don't be surprised by a run toward $100 million stateside.
So, if 'Lucy' does well, we can expect an imminent announcement on a Black Widow solo movie, y/y?
Avengers: Age of Ultron has a pretty big cast already, but of course there’s always room for a certain giant. Stan Lee has confirmed that he will have a cameo in the film, as he has in all other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to date.
However, Lee has also teased that he’s ready to break from tradition a bit. The Marvel legend jokingly suggested that DC should give him a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hit the jump to find out why he thinks it’d be a good idea.
Appearing at the London Film and Comic Con this weekend, Lee revealed that he’s already wrapped a small role for Avengers: Age of Ultron. While he wouldn’t give away any specifics about his part, he did hint that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) would be involved.
The movies have been great. We have been so lucky. We’ve got the best directors, the best special effects people and wonderful actors. People that had not been big stars before like the fellow who plays Thor — he’s wonderful! I was with him yesterday — I did my cameo of course [for Avengers: Age of Ultron]. And Chris who plays Captain America… He’s excellent.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will mark Lee’s eleventh appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s also cropped up in tons of other Marvel-based movies, most of which have turned out to be huge hits. At the event, Lee commented on Marvel’s big-screen success.
All it can do is make it better for Marvel if we do these movies and the movies are successful. There are people reading Marvel comic books that would have never thought to read a comic book before. It helps the comic book business. The movie business has been unbelievably incredible. The Marvel movies are about the biggest money-making movies of all.
In fact, he teased, “DC could probably make a lot more money with Superman and Batman if they announced that I’d have a cameo in it! People wouldn’t believe it — they’d have to go to the theater to see it!”
Whether Warner Bros./DC will buy that reasoning remains to be seen. But wouldn’t it make for a fun little Easter Egg if they did?
Avengers: Age of Ultron lands in theaters May 1, 2015. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives May 6, 2016.
Favorite cameo? Mine is the Winter Soldier.
Last night, Kreayshawn announced that she got catfished by a fake Diplo. She took to her depressingly under-furnished office decorated with Dragon Ball Z and Bakugan posters to record a vlog about her experience:
The backstory: Life goes on for Kreayshawn after the flop of her album and gives birth to her son Dominic. She starts living that straight mommy life, giving up lean, and staying in at night. A few nights ago, she goes back into an old GMail account and starts reliving the wild times. Oh look, there's Diplo's dick pic that he sent. She decides she'll hit him up on Twitter DM to remind him of his sexual transgression as a playful goof:
Blackmailing @diplo.— Dr. Kreayshawn (@KREAYSHAWN) July 13, 2014
About an hour later she tweets:
Just found out I got catfished by a fake @diplo in 2008! WOW. My life has changed.— Dr. Kreayshawn (@KREAYSHAWN) July 13, 2014
Diplo informs Kreayshawn that his dick pic would have a visible tattoo (probably something really cool like a knife or a treble clef). Turns out that the Diplo that she had a meaningful email correspondence was a complete fake.
The impostor started to contact her after her fan videos were chosen to be hosted on the website of Diplo's record label, Mad Decent. Being recognized by the website was already a self-esteem boost for young Kreay, but the personal emails from the accomplished producer were instrumental in her pursuing her dreams. While the fake Diplo would problematically request a "personal sex tape" that she would deny, he would also give her compliments and words of encouragement that she cites as "inspiring her whole career... like, kinda."
@diplo whatever! mizz my email penpal ✝— Dr. Kreayshawn (@KREAYSHAWN) April 8, 2011
Kreay in 2011, telling the real Diplo that she misses his email correspondence to which he does not reply.
Before going to Diplo's shows, she would email the fake Diplo and he expertly diverted any confusion with the brilliant line "don't be surprised if I act brand new because I'm going to be there with my girlfriend." Looking back, Kreay takes it all in stride and seems to have a pretty good sense of humor about it. Although there is a dark moment at the end of the confessional vlog where she begins to ruminate on who the troll might be. "Honestly, I think it was a crazy ex-boyfriend because..." she looks to her laptop screen, breaking eye contact with the camera lens and nervously fixes her bangs. She's deep in thought of the worst in a previous relationship and continues despondently, "What kind of girl... doesn't have one of those?"
Ever been or have Catfished someone, ONTD?
'Pretty Little Liars,''The Fosters,''Switched at Birth' and more ABC Family shows airing holiday themed episodes
On Tuesday (July 15), ABC's 2014 Summer TV Press Tour kicked off with a quick ABC Family executive panel led by President Tom Ascheim. While there weren't any major announcements to be made about renewals, cancelations or new series pickups, there was one exciting piece of news that Ascheim had to share.
Every single original series on ABC Family is going to feature holiday-themed episodes later this year.
That's right, get ready to carve pumpkins and scream with laughter during all-new Halloween-themed episodes of comedies "Melissa & Joey" and "Baby Daddy," plus the premiere of new hidden-camera prank show "Freak Out" during the network's annual "13 Nights of Halloween."
Then break out the candy canes and hang the stockings this winter as "Pretty Little Liars,""The Fosters,""Switched at Birth,""Chasing Life,""Melissa and Joey" and "Baby Daddy" air all-new holiday-themed episodes during the network's annual "25 Days of Christmas" programming event.
Because, as Ascheim quipped, "Nothing says Christmas like a text from 'A.'"
The talk show panelist answered that question during a sit-down interview on The Howard Stern Show.
She said it was her best year ever, adding that it was rewarding and intriguing to work with Barbara Walters, who helped create the show in 1997 and who said her goodbye in May.
"I'm the luckiest person," the 41-year-old said. "I'm her last hire." And that's pretty much where niceties came to end.
The self-proclaimed dirty bird said she had a "four-hour legal meeting" and would have to censor herself too much. She said she hated it when actors tried to talk politics.
Was McCarthy fired? Stern asked. "Yes and no. I would call it: If I wanted to stay with Rosie and if I was a Republican I would still be there right now."
The former Playboy model admitted she played it too safe during her stint at the table.
"I'll tell you something, Howard, it's like halfway into it, around February, I went, 'God, I'm not allowed to be the best of me here.' I feel like to have a voice, to be able to speak without having to interrupt people, it's very difficult, and I don't like doing it. It's very uncomfortable, so I felt like, 'You know what? Maybe this is just a stepping stone for me to go somewhere where I can be my full self.'"
Indeed, the onetime Singled Out co-host is getting her own radio show on SiriusXM called Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy, which will premiere Wednesday.
“If Daryl dies, we riot” has been a familiar refrain from fans of the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon. That means Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman could have a melee on his hands if he does indeed off Daryl as he promised on Entertainment Weekly Radio (although we’re pretty sure he was kidding). Regardless, Dixon devotees are likely to gasp at this exclusive new image from season 5 of the zombie drama, which returns in October on AMC.
In it, we see a bloodied and bruised Daryl, who has also been gagged and bound…and not in a sexy way as legions of ladies no doubt dream about on a daily basis. (Or maybe this is considered sexy. I have no idea. People are into some freaky stuff.)
Who is responsible for this heinous act of heiniosity?!? Are those bastards at Terminus behind roughing up our main man (as played by Norman Reedus)? And how will Daryl get out of such a predicament? Wait, he does get out of the predicament… right? Right?!?
