Regina King Talks Heaviness of Role in ‘Seven Seconds’

Regina King Talks Heaviness of Role in ‘Seven Seconds’
The cast of “Seven Seconds” shared the difficulties that accompany tackling a story about the killing of a young, black man.

At the premiere in Beverly Hills, Calif., star Regina King said the heavy emotions she displays in each of the 10 episodes was a challenge. “As an actor, having to carry that much grief every day was a lot,” she said. In the series, King plays the mother of a boy who is killed by a police officer during a hit-and-run accident.

King said she met with a mother whose son had been murdered by police to understand the role. “It’s hard for me still to even wrap my mind around how she could still speak with joy,” King said. “She definitely shared the rollercoaster that your emotions take you through. All I could do is hopefully honor her with my performance.”

While the interaction gave King a starting point for her role, she said it

CNN is claiming Glenn Haab, father of 17-year-old Florida school shooting hero Colton Haab, sent “doctored” copies of a producer’s email to Fox News and HuffPost in an effort to make it look like the news outlet was scripting its town hall meeting.

Is Supergirl's Newest Addition Actually Pestilence, the Third Worldkiller?

Is Supergirl's Newest Addition Actually Pestilence, the Third Worldkiller?
Supergirl‘s latest casting could be a very good thing… or a very, very bad thing.

Angela Zhou (Hell on Wheels) will appear on an upcoming episode of the CW drama, TVLine has confirmed, playing esteemed National City surgeon Dr. Grace Park. On one hand, having a celebrated doctor in the vicinity could come in handy, given how badly Supergirl’s been getting pummeled as of late — but on the other hand, isn’t there a strong chance that Dr. Park is actually Pestilence, the third sleeping Worldkiller?

Supergirl.tv first reported the news of Zhou’s casting.

The Legends Of Tomorrow Film Disco Music Video in their spare time

So now we know what the Legends of Tomorrow do in their spare time. They film disco music videos, and all but one of them look like they’re having fun doing it. Why does it always seem like the women are having so much more fun in these things than the men? The men usually seem stiff or just way too loose as though they’re trying too hard. It could be they’re staying in character but quite honestly a couple of them just look like they’re going through the motions and not much else. Ah well, it’s their leisure time

‘The Bachelor,’ ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ NBA All-Star Game Lead Winter Olympics Counterprogramming — Ratings Watch

NBC’s Winter Olympics juggernaut from PyeongChang, South Korea, continued to dominate the primetime ratings for the week ending February 18, but audiences not feeling the Olympic fever had plenty of other options — particularly of the unscripted variety.

The night of Tuesday, Feb. 13 was the most-watched night of the Olympics last week, featuring Shaun White and Mikaela Shiffrin going for gold. All seven nights of the Olympics were the top-rated programs of the week, among both adults 18-49 and viewers. Viewership is down from the 2014 Sochi Games, although still solid. Here’s a side-by-side comparison so far from NBC:

John Oliver Victorious: Coal CEO’s Defamation Suit Dismissed

John Oliver Victorious: Coal CEO’s Defamation Suit Dismissed
John Oliver and HBO were vindicated Wednesday when the judge presiding over a lawsuit brought by coal company CEO Robert Murray against the host and premium cabler dismissed the case.

“I find the arguments set forth in the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim and Reply well-founded, appropriate in this matter and will grant the same,” Judge Jeffrey Cramer wrote in a letter to attorneys for both sides. “The Court adopts, with little exception, Defendants’ argument in support of their Motion regarding all issues addressed in the same.”

Murray brought the suit in June of last year after Oliver ran a segment on “Last Week Tonight” criticizing the coal industry and referring to Murray at the “geriatric Dr. Evil,” as well as alleging that a mining accident that killed nine people and that Murray’s company claims was caused by an earthquake was partially the result of improper mining practices. Murray filed the

Netflix Reveals Disturbing New Reality Show, “The Push”

If you have read my contributions before, you probably have detected a slight bit of contempt for most reality television shows, not all. The problem that I have with reality television is that far too often to highlights the darkness and base nature of humanity. It does not demand anything of us. It dumbs us down and desensitizes us to some harsh realities that we have the power to change. Because I don’t allow those shows to be viewed in my home, their existence is mostly a cultural annoyance; however, many people are being unwittingly influenced by the content of

John Oliver, HBO Score Legal Victory Over Coal King: First Amendment Protects “Geriatric Dr. Evil” Jab

John Oliver and HBO’s Last Week Tonight had a First Amendment right to call coal king Robert Murray a “geriatric Dr. Evil” and ridicule his Murray Energy Corporation in a scathing segment last June, says the West Virginia judge presiding over Murray’s defamation lawsuit.

Sony’s ‘Silver and Black’ Indefinitely Delayed

Mark my words, this is merely the first domino to fall. Sony’ long-promised Spider-Man-less spin-off universe, peopled by all of his greatest enemies, supporting characters and acquaintances (but not the wall-crawler himself), has been a bad idea from the start. Sure, he has one of the best rogue’s galleries and supporting casts in all of superherodom, but he is still the reason why people show up in the first place. He’s the reason why people care. Nobody wants to see J. Jonah Jameson angrily bark for more pictures of modelling sensation Mary Jane Watson, industrial capitalist Norman Osborn sit in

After almost being eliminated earlier in the Xxiii Winter Games, last night's all-time first gold medal in curling for Team USA was a sweeter than usual win for skipper John Shuster and crew. However, played past the midnight hour on NBC Sports Network, the victory, witnessed by a crowd-pleasing First Daughter Ivanka Trump and others from the Us delegation there for Sunday's Closing Ceremony, did nothing to help NBC primetime ratings bottom line.
