Agents of SHIELD promotes Luke Mitchell to regular for S3


Luke Mitchell, who played Inhuman Lincoln Campbell, will be a regular on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 3, Jeph Loeb says they have big plans for his character next season.


I liked Lincoln, even if he wasn't developed at all. So how many regulars do they have now for S3? I'm assuming Adrianne and Nick are staying with the show, since they're not getting a spin-off. I just hope Mack sticks around and isn't killed off in the midseason finale for angst reasons.

Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's Lifetime Movie to Air June 20

"A Deadly Adoption" was originally mistaken for an April Fool's Day joke earlier this year, but then later confirmed to be a real, top secret production for Lifetime's 25th anniversary of their well-known TV movies. Farrell soon after said that he and Wiig decided to pull out of the project because it leaked, so logically the production for it should have stopped.

But it apparently didn't. Because there's now a bilboard for it being advertised somewhere in Hollywood. Photos can be faked though, so take this with a grain of salt.

cameron crowe apologizes for racist casting

- “I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice. As far back as 2007, Captain Allison Ng was written to be a super-proud ¼ Hawaiian who was frustrated that, by all outward appearances, she looked nothing like one. A half-Chinese father was meant to show the surprising mix of cultures often prevalent in Hawaii. Extremely proud of her unlikely heritage, she feels personally compelled to over-explain every chance she gets. The character was based on a real-life, red-headed local who did just that.”
- supposedly promises for more diverse casting in his future projects

Rumour Rekindled: Obi-Wan Kenobi Trilogy ?

It looks like Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan may be back.

According to Schmoes Know, the actor is rumored to be in talks with Disney about reviving his Obi-Wan Kenobi character for an upcoming "Star Wars" standalone film. An Obi-Wan spinoff has been rumored for a while now -- however, Schmoes Know reports that sources claim Disney is courting McGregor not only for one film, but for a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies. Cinelinx first reported this rumor last October.

Lee Pace had a rough week

First of all, his AMC show HALT AND CATCH FIRE is back but it's bearchow.

According to Fashion & Style: the new season of "Halt and Catch Fire" is not off to the best start, ratings-wise. Though the Season 2 premiere brought in nearly .1 million more viewers than the Season 1 finale, the episode's ratings were down 45% from the Season 1 premiere. Additionally, the premiere's haul of .66 million didn't even match the freshman season's average of .77 million.

Alessia Cara - Here

Alessia Cara, 18 years old from Brampton Ontario. She's signed to Def Jam and is supposed to be releasing her first album at some point this year.

How do you write your songs—in a journal?

"Sometimes, yeah! When I did this album, I did most of it in a studio. We go in, and I let everything out at the studio. But I’ll write things in a journal, and then go back and remember how I was feeling and write things out on my guitar. For my first album, I wanted not only to talk about my own experiences, but to really make an album for everyone. I want at least one song to resonate with every person. I have a lot of talk about body image for women, self-acceptance for everyone, accepting that you might be weird or you might be a little uncool but you could still be cool if you find your own space. There’s a lot of empowering stuff, some vulnerable stuff."

Do you think we’re in a time when smart young people are being heard more?

"Especially in the music industry, there is a big shift where young people have a voice now. You see people like Lorde or Raury—anyone young and doing it right now—and we’re really starting to show our faces and prove that young people have a voice, and we actually make sense, and we have important things to say, too. I love the shift that’s happening in entertainment, and in life in general. Young people are really standing up, and I hope I can be one of them. Not only in this industry, but in life it’s so hard to be a girl, and to feel like you might not have a say or the rights that other people have. The only thing we can do is support other girls and be happy for them. Don’t be mean to girls who really like what they’re doing and who like themselves, because it’s so hard to like yourself. Be happy for them!"

First heard the song on Songza yesterday and I love it. It's her first single, but she's done a million and one YouTube covers on her personal channel. She's got a great voice.

James Wan To Develop & Direct DC's Aquaman Film

WB's DC Cinematic Universe has found its Aquaman director in James Wan, who will also develop the film. Known for Furious 7, The Conjuring, and Saw, he's also closed a deal to direct Robotech, Sony's adaption of the 1980s mecha anime. Here's hoping the cast won't be whitewashed!

WB has also released its first plot description of Aquaman: "An icon for over 70 years, Aquaman is the King of the Seven Seas. This reluctant ruler of Atlantis, caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, is committed to protecting the entire globe."


Fun fact! The oil rig in Man of Steel was actually Merrevale Oil, a company that Aquaman has frequently clashed with in his comics.

And according to TheWrap's film reporter, Jeff Sneider, those whales we see swimming around an unconscious Clark as he sinks into the ocean, were actually the ones to lift him to the surface under Aquaman's command. And we may see this as a flashback in Batman v Superman. This can all be heard here.

Samuel L. Jackson won't be back as Nick Fury in Captain America: Civil War (plus more news!)

Connor Cruise Goes On Bizarre Twitter Rant About Caitlyn Jenner, Then Deletes Twitter Account

-"Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is gonna come out and yell PUNK'D"
-"Don't get me wrong. Do what you feel like doing and don't let anyone stop you. But everyone is taking this way too seriously…There are so many more important things that should be talked about…And SO MANY MORE IMPORTANT PEOPLE that actually deserve an award."
-"There are just way more things that we as a nation and as a planet should be talking about and working on."
-"Like the fact that we are overfishing and in 30 years there will be no more fish. Seems dumb but 85 percent of the worlds protein is fish. That's one of thousands of things that should be of a higher importance than what is currently being gone over…Or what about the fact that our planet is becoming less habitable on a daily basis. Yet the population is increasing at an alarming rate…Or the fact that we all can't even get a long on earth lol. We fight and kill each other. We have war and poverty. This needs to change."


Which do you think is more important ontd: overfishing or trans rights?

First full review of new Wachowski Netflix series SENSE8

 photo sense8_ice_02_01096_r1_b_zpsexg4doau.jpg

While there are plenty of reviews floating around for the new Netflix series Sense8 from the Wachowskis (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas, Jupiter Ascending) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Changeling), Den of Geek has posted what appears to be the first review of the complete first series (most reviewers only had the first three episodes, and reviews on the basis of those have covered the spectrum of 'this is very confused' to 'this is epically awesome'). The review of the whole series is extremely promising, praising Sense8 for its ambition, craft and intrigue. Special kudos are also given to the performances of Tuppence Middleton (Riley), as a drug-addicted Icelandic DJ, and Doona Bae (Sun), as a businesswoman/kickass martial artist. Sense8 launches on Netflix on Friday 5 June, and the full review can be read here.

Synopsis: Sense8 is centered around eight characters that live in different cities around the world who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves mentally connected by this experience. They are suddenly able to see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, and have access to each other's deepest secrets. Not only must these eight adapt to this new ability and to each other, they must figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.

Yes! I'm so happy to see enthusiasm about a Wachowski project - especially this one, which looks so very interesting. Jupiter Ascending high-five!

So I saw this play on May 17th... I didn't like it, but I can identify with it (the play is about millenials and basically how Jesse's character can't relate to anyone because he's jealous of their successes). I'll shamelessly promote my own very spoiler-y "review"/thoughts here as well as my experience meeting the cast here. A lot of tweets from average theater-goers think it's brilliant, but I haven't been recommending it to anyone, lol.

I found a review roundup by BroadwayWorld.com here. The reviews are mixed: everyone acts well, and there are a few good lines here and there, but Jesse Eisenberg plays the same insufferable character which is tiresome and there is really nothing to be learned from the play/play's end. Also, no one can figure out what the title means.

Mat Zo has been exposing some of EDM's biggest secrets on his Twitter account this past week

Trance producer Mat Zo has spent this past week tweeting about his frustrations with the state of dance music and culture today. He expressed his disappointment with EDM, pretty much saying that electronic music used to be created and appreciated by nerds until the scene got appropriated by douches who are into partying, getting laid, and living a lavish lifestyle.

Here's some stuff he revealed (for those who don't want to read all of his tweets):
-Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz trap talented artists by luring them with shitty record deals
-a lot of the big name DJs will pay around $100,000 to secure their headlining slot on a festival lineup
-Skrillex, Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz, and Deadmau5 "are some of the only real people who headline festivals"
-Diplo started off by producing his own music, but now he largely uses ghost producers
-Calls Diplo out for posting a picture of his dick and argues with Deadmau5

Duggars: "We failed as parents" - Full Megyn Kelly Interview

* jb confirms that it was four daughters and the family babysitter who were molested by josh.
* jb and michelle emphasize how their daughters were sleeping for most of the incidents. the implication is that the abuse was somehow less bad because they didn’t understand/know what was going on.
* they believe that the backlash is greater due to their christian beliefs because, to the duggars, being smug self-righteous arbiters of morality is synonymous with christianity.
* jb was okay with being a moral hypocrite because he didn’t think the news would come out since the records were supposed to be sealed.
* the real tragedy is how the police department betrayed their trust by leaking the records due to an agenda.
* megyn brings up michelle’s anti-trans robocall. michelle is a fucking idiot and says that it’s just common sense. this gives jb an opportunity to jump in and clarify that josh is not a pedophile because he was under 16.
* josh, despite being a grown-ass man with his own family and a job hatemongering for the FRC (until he had to resign), continues to be a cowardly piece of shit by not appearing in the interview and speaking for himself.
* two of josh’s victims, jessa and jill, are slated to sit down with megyn as well.
