It’s going to be a long while until Game of Thrones is back on TV. But to ease the pain of the 12-month wait, we have Conan O’Brien.
Oh that wacky prankster.
Killing zombies can be rough business. So every once in a while, it’s a good idea to kick back and have a little fun. And it doesn’t hurt if it’s at the expense of one of your co-workers.
Netflix's The Get Down will certainly be known as a series trying to capitalize on the success of Empire but this new trailer makes the case for it being recognized on its own terms. The hip-hop drama from Baz Luhrmann (and executive producer Nas) "chronicles the rise of hip-hop and the last days of disco -– told through the lives, music, art and dance of the South Bronx kids who would change the world forever."
There are three types of people in the world of Game of Thrones. The nobility playing the game, the smallfolk who suffer for it, and the elite group that actually makes sure the world keeps running. Included in that group is Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Varys (Conleth Hill), and Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham). Without these men to clean up the messes, both Waters and Essos would’ve been reduced to rubble seasons ago.
Titles for TV series are tough. You want something that gets attention, but also captures the subject and tone of your show, and you don't want to alienate potential viewers in the process. We've all shared a sigh over the poor choices that the folks behind Terriers, Trophy Wife, Cougar Town, et al right now, and if Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn't make it past its second season, we can once again rail against anyone's belief that the audience appreciates nuance and/or irony in titles.
Over 3,000 people auditioned for Young Han Solo before the role went to Alden Ehrenreich and, over the weekend, Conan imagined how the failed auditions went. In this new clip, we see everyone from Melissa McCarthy to Adam Sandler to 50 Cent all audition for the coveted Star Wars role.
After three seasons and two separate TV shows centered in Hell’s Kitchen, Marvel and Netflix are expanding their street-level hero universe. This September, Luke Cage will take us inside the world of Harlem, including the complex economic ecosystem that includes men like Cornell Cottonmouth (Mahershala Ali).
