Sandra Oh’s Been Waiting 30 Years for a Show Like "Killing Eve"



For four years after she left Grey’s Anatomy, Sandra Oh waited for offers to come in, juicy scripts that could come alive in her hands. The lack of certain offers was heartbreaking at the time.

Oh was confused about who the producers wanted her to play in "Killing Eve", scanning for the inevitable doctor or receptionist role. Plum leading parts are usually reserved for white performers.

There is a massive billboard for the show with her face plastered front and center. Oh’s parents were thrilled.

For a long time, Cristina Yang was the most mainstream, non-stereotypical Asian character on television. On Grey’s, she noticed that child and teen actors tended to be either black or white. She urged former the show-runners to hire a more diverse swath of young talent.

"Ready Player One" Film Omits Lead Lesbian Character's Sexuality


– In Spielberg's latest film adapted from Ernest Cline's novel, quite a few structural and other changes are made to the book's story: puzzles and challanges for the easter egg keys are changed, characters are introduced differently their characterizations are different. But of all the things the film omits, the sexuality and backstory of its lead lesbian character is the most glaring. (spoilers ahead, but the picture above shows it as do all the posters for the film ft. Lena)
– Lena Waithe plays a character who goes by the alias of "Aech", best friend of the lead character Wade, described as being "a tall, broad shouldered Caucasian male with dark hair and brown eyes" in the VR universe The OASIS, featuring a deeper, digitally altered voice. For most of the film we don't see Aech in person, but when Wade has to find his allies in real life late in the book, he learns his best friend is actually a black lesbian.
– In the book: Wade approaches Aech's van expecting to find his friend resembling his online avatar, and to his surprise, she introduces herself as Helen Harris. They sit down and have a conversation about it while Helen explains that she was kicked out of her mother's house when she learned about her sexuality, and that she hid behind her online avatar so she wouldn't face discrimination and could make money from digital tournaments to stay off the streets. Wade says he was surprised, but that they're best friends no matter what (in a very "I don't see color/sexual orientiation" way IMO, but nonetheless). Wade also later refers to Helen’s avatar as “he” through the end of the book because he’s used to doing so.
– In the film: Wade and Helen meet in an alleyway while he's being chased. Helen has to quickly convince Wade she's Aech by sharing things about their friendship only she would know, and then the two of them run off, but never talk about her backstory as the action for the third act ramps up. (not to say the book is a paragon of rep or anything lol)
– The film does include a brief moment, but doesn't go far enough: Halfway through the movie during one of the challenges for the keys, Wade, Aech enter a challenge about the film "The Shining" and are transported to a digital Overlook Hotel. Aech (before the reveal has happened, who appears as her avatar) explains she's never seen the film before, and everyone quickly gets separated as the elevators open and blood comes pouring out like from the film. Aech is swept into Room 237, famous for the naked woman that tries to seduce Jack Nicholson's character. The woman is the same here and approaches Aech, who's confused but then almost leans in for a kiss before seeing she's a decaying corpse, like in the film, and then runs away as the woman fails to stab her. This moment doesn't go anywhere or come up again and was not in the book. We've come so far. Lefou WHO?
– This omission follows other recent films: Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok having a scene showing her bisexuality cut (also recently left out from the DVD release), and Black Panther also cutting a scene featuring Aya (a lesbian in the comics) flirting with Okoye. Both those films produced those scenes but simply left them out, while RPO seems to have left explicit mention of Helen's sexuality out of the script altogether. It's also a second for Spielberg, who infamously cut back on the central black gay relationship in his adaptation of The Color Purple.
– A few critics have noted it's a missed opportunity both for Helen's character and for the ability to talk about how marginalized people might express themselves in a digital universe, rather then strictly being a straight male fantasy. Just about everyone either didn't notice or care.

This day in 1990, Twin Peaks premiered - 7 (3) ways it changed TV forever



28 years ago, ABC premiered Twin Peaks, a show that begged the question, Who killed Laura Palmer? Looking back on it's impact, here are 3 ways it changed TV forever:

1. Twin Peaks changed serialized television - Shows with cliffhangers usually wrapped them up in an episode or two. A plot did not span the course of a season.

3. After Twin Peaks, it became okay for TV to be weird - The dreams in The Sopranos and the puzzles in Lost wouldn't have been possible without Twin Peaks.



6. Twin Peaks was the first series to generate so many fan theories - Even though social media didn't exist in 1990, this didn't stop families and coworkers from theorizing what could happen next.

ONTD Original: This Was Myspace Music



Me? With another throwback list, this late on ONTD? It's more likely than you think. I was going to consider this as a nostalgia post but this is more of a cringey moment in all of our lives (why is it so common that most of us in 2005-2008 were in middle school and witnessing the emo and scene typa sh**). Some of these 13 songs are still well-known and others were very niche.

Remember any of them? Maybe a few lines from the songs will help you remember.

Interview with the filmmakers of the UFO death cult film "The Endless" + movie review

OP's new favorite movie, The Endless, was released this weekend! Here's some promo to convince you all to go to your local artsy theater and support this genre-bending film.



In The Endless, two brothers return to the cult they were raised in. Writers/directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson -- who also starred in the film as the two brothers -- discuss, among other things:

  • how the film fits in within their cinematic universe of the previous films, Resolution and Spring

  • interestingly, Moorhead says that during the festival circuit of Resolution, sometimes the film was described as "Lovecraftian mumblecore" - but they don't do improv in their films

  • how they were planning on doing a no-budget comedy about them in a UFO death cult, then realized that what they filmed was "extremely unfunny"

  • how even after the success of Spring, they were "waiting for somebody to take charge of [their] careers" and decided to make The Endless themselves

  • cults, and researching them for the movie

  • the autobiographical elements of the film, exploring grief and forgiveness

It's a pretty long interview, and won't spoil the film!

Kendall Jenner is looking... rather different

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kendall posted an IG story recently, in which she looked almost alien-esque. Some of her fans criticised her for going overboard with plastic surgery, while the rest called her doll-like, and a blind portion claimed that she hasn't got any plastic surgery.


https://instagram.com/p/BhEe-EBhWsi


Kendall has previously denied getting plastic surgery on her app, claiming it would be ridiculous given that she is a model.

I never wear lip liner or lipstick unless it's the occasional obvious red - and when I say never, I mean even when I'm doing a nude lip, it's basically just gloss! Anyway, I felt all of the makeup on because we were so rushed and I went out and did my thing... All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, 'OMG, Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstuction - look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!' I was like, this is CRAZY.
