  1. TFW you're working a rush job on a Tika Sumpter movie. Good for her.

  2. Lauren Holly's full account of her encounter with Harvey Weinstein is absolutely heartbreaking. Watch the full clip in the thread.

  3. Really hope someone in the States picks up this George Michael documentary playing in the UK.

      It airs on Showtime this Saturday (Oct. 21) at 9 pm EST.

  4. Blade Runner 2049 did a classy thing for a down on their luck actor and is a shockingly great movie when it shouldn't be. Go see it.

      Good. I wasn't sure even after I saw the credits. Like others in that scene I was shocked in a good way.

      Gotcha. Thanks. That was a hugely wonderful surprise & such an affecting scene.

       

      Also, the movie showed me that Jared Leto can still be pulled back from the brink and turn in a nice, controlled performance.

       

      I think I need to go see it again.

      @YRBB Same about seeing it again. I still have a few conversations from it dancing in my head right now. One of them was a conversation I just had last week so it resonated beautiful.

  5. Kelela's first major label album "Take Me Apart" is futurism meets Janet/Velvet Rope-era Janet Jackson. Listen to it on Spotify, it's great.

  6. In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, Terry Crews has a story too: http://www.vulture.com/2017/10/after-harvey-weinstein-terry-crews-shares-his-own-story.html

      As long as there's a Hollywood, there will be men like Weinstein, slithering around, using their power to defile and demean women.  But I am glad to see women and even men speaking up about this issue, if only so those who are influential within the film and TV industries will think twice before putting anyone through this personal and costly humiliation.

      Not just women. Wait for the next one.

      Terrible that he believed (knew) he would go to jail if he fought back.

  7. Erika Alexander has a pretty serious side career writing increasingly major comic books now and I'm quite happy for her.

      That's great! She's was awesome as Max on Living Singles.

      A piece of trivia-- Marta Kaufman who co-created Friends, said that Living Single was the inspiration for Friends.

      Good for her. I so miss her on TV.

  8. If the rumors are true about who pops up in Blade Runner 2049 I will eat my hat.

  9. Wow: The zero-budget "avant-garde black soap opera' Bill Gunn and Ishmael Reed made for public television is somehow getting a restoration: 

     

    1. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Cool! I cannot wait to see the episodes come out and how it all pans out. 

    2. Vee

      They were very very very cheaply made - I can't imagine how it'll look.

    3. DRW50

      DRW50

      That's terrific. I hope we get to see it.

  10. Poor Sonequa Martin-Green cries in every single interview she gives about working on Star Trek. I guess I'll give CBS All Access the 1-week trial today.

  11. GL's Don Stewart stars with a talking chimp named Trudi in the ridiculous "Carnival Magic" - the new Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Netflix just keeps on giving.

  12. Nichelle Nichols meets new Star Trek lead Sonequa Martin-Green at the Star Trek: Discovery premiere: https://twitter.com/NichelleIsUhura/status/910305125805080576

      That's so beautiful.

      It really is! I have been upset with how the show has been handled in some areas, but the early word is good and I love Star Trek so we'll see. I just wish it wasn't stuck on CBS' white elephant platform. The pilot airs on TV on Sunday.

  13. WHY is Jessica Tuck joining GH?

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      I'd say money talks but they can't be paying much. I guess it's still a gig. I'm just glad they aren't going to have her play Megan...

  14. Not here for this earthquake shít! Moving West was a mistake!

  15. The young girl in It is going to be a huge star if she plays her cards right.

      Franko

      Agreed, wholeheartedly.

  16. Series 2 of Sky's Fortitude is a lot more all over the place plot-wise than Series 1, but it still retains the power to absolutely shock when it takes a major character. Oof.

  17. Nice to see Ebony freelancers standing up. I can never know the magnitude of that particular struggle, but as a freelancer I know what it's like to have to hunt down your pay for months from a client: http://www.theroot.com/ebonyowes-freelancers-sue-historic-black-magazine-for-1802248405

      I know what this is like too. People would never do this to contractors on Wall Street, so why has this become an acceptable practice toward writers and artisans?

  18. Did Sky TV seriously leak Twin Peaks early again

  19. Today in awful: Cultural vampire Katy Perry dragged Dustin from Stranger Things into her music video. Where will she strike next? Withdraw, succubus!

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      Why are they doing a video for a single that flopped months ago?

    2. MissLlanviewPA

      MissLlanviewPA

      I'll be the no-taste bitch who didn't mind the video and thought she poked fun at herself in a funny way. It was nice knowing you guys. *runs away before I get shanked*

  20. Wild to see Sansa on GOT occupying Ned and Catelyn's chambers as Wardeness of the North.

    1. Graham

      Do you get a thrill out of spoiling [!@#$%^&*]?

       

      I'm going to post every Twin Peaks spoiler I find dumbass.

    2. Vee

      That was two weeks ago, bitch.

  21. Heard good things about the Showtime doc on Whitney Houston coming out on the 25th. Trailer here: 

     

  22. Oh lord. Janet Hubert @ it again https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DHZowNCUIAAI8E4.jpg:large

      "Oh, Lord" is right.

      I aint mad!  She is telling truths!  

    3. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      Except for the N-word, her post is accurate.

  23. "...And last night I had another Monica Bellucci dream!" #twinpeaks

  24. You go looking for Brienne of Tarth gifs and you get leaked GOT episode 7 script pages. Well, at least I guessed something like that was coming.
