  1. Dwayne Johnson & Tom Hanks in 2020? Fans Back 'SNL' Ticket 'To Equality and Beyond!'

    Yeah, it was just a joke during Dwayne Johnson's "Saturday Night Live" monologue, but plenty of fans said they would vote for The Rock as president and Tom Hanks as vice president if they ran in 2020. It's Scorpio and David S. Pumpkins! How can you go wrong?

    (Actually, you know how they could go wrong? If Morgan Freeman, Martin Sheen, and/or Kiefer Sutherland decide to run, since they have more experience as pop culture presidents.)

    The Rock had Alec Baldwin on stage when he discussed his recent consideration of a presidential run. Johnson revealed his running mate would be a fellow SNL five-timer who was very well liked. Baldwin feigned flattery, then shock, when The Rock said his choice was ... Tom Hanks!

    Tom Hanks: "I can... not possibly turn this down! I'll do it. I'm in! Let's go!"

    The Rock: "Now, in the past, I would have never considered running for president. I didn't think I was qualified at all, but now I'm actually worried that I'm too qualified."

    Hanks: "The truth is, America needs us. No one can seem to agree on anything anymore, except for two things..."

    The Rock: "...Pizza and us."

    Hanks: "I mean, I have been in two movies where the plane crashes, and people are still excited to see me on their flight. [...] Together, we would get one hundred percent of the vote. I would get the senior vote because I fought in World War II... in, like, 10 different movies."

    The Rock: "And of course, I would get the minority vote, because everyone just assumes that I'm, well, whatever they are."

    The monologue went on for about 7 minutes, with the two saying they were just joking about running for office ... and then deciding, maybe they weren't joking that much?Fans reacted with support for the idea, filling the comments of SNL's YouTube video with hope that Johnson and Hanks do decide to run in 2020, and adding more campaign backing on Twitter:

    How great would a Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson/Tom Hanks White House be?

    Here's more from The Rock after SNL, still touting a Johnson/Hanks 2020 campaign:

  2. Nicole Kidman Goes Punk in 'How to Talk to Girls at Parties' Teaser

    Nicole Kidman wears a fright wig that recalls David Bowie's Goblin King in "Labyrinth" and screams "Rise up, my children!" in the first teaser for "How to Talk to Girls at Parties."

    In the film from John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch"), Kidman plays Queen Boadicea, a "punk rock den mother." It's based on the short story by Neil Gaiman and is set in the '70s punk scene and London. Elle Fanning (Kidman's costar in "The Beguiled") plays an alien(!) who has a Romeo and Juliet-esque affair with a young punk, Enn (Tony winner Alex Sharp).

    The film premieres this week at the Cannes Film Fest, along with three other Kidman projects: "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" (from the director of "The Lobster"), Sofia Coppola's "The Beguiled," and Season 2 of Jane Campion's mystery series "Top of the Lake."

  3. The CW's First 'Dynasty' Trailer Is Overflowing With Family Drama

    The CW's "Dynasty" reboot isn't skimping on drama.

    The network released the first trailer for the upcoming series Thursday, and it proves that the show won't shy away from its '80s soap opera roots. As we can see, the new version clearly isn't afraid to get a little (or a lot) melodramatic; the preview shows secret affairs, contentious family dynamics, betrayal, and more.

    "Dynasty" centers on the uber-wealthy Carringtons, their business empire, and their feud with another family, the Colbys. The trailer especially spotlights the contentious relationship between daughter Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) and her stepmother, Cristal Flores (Nathalie Kelley). There's clearly no love lost between them -- they literally come to blows in the preview.

    The soap comes from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, both of whom worked on "Gossip Girl" and "The OC." Let's hope they've created a similarly addicting series with "Dynasty." See what you think below.

    "Dynasty" premieres this fall on The CW.

  4. 'The House' Trailer: Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell Find Unusual Way to Pay for College

    Creative solutions aren't always good ones.

    That's a big takeaway from the latest trailer for "The House." Released by Roadshow Thursday, the preview showcases stars Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell, who play Kate and Scott, a married couple determined to send their daughter to the college of her dreams, even though they can't afford it. With their neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas) offering guidance, the two decide to run a gambling operation out of their basement. Of course, running an underground casino isn't easy, and all sorts of crazy hijinks ensue.

    The trailer demonstrates just how insane the situation quickly becomes. As the casino takes off, their daughter grows suspicious, law enforcement starts breathing down their necks, and a little intimidation takes a bloody turn. Not surprisingly, things get a little NSFW in the preview, so keep that in mind when you watch below.

    "The House" is set to open in theaters on June 30.

  5. 'The Dark Crystal' Prequel Series Coming to Netflix: Watch First Teaser 

    The late Jim Henson said he was more proud of "The Dark Crystal" than any other film he made, and now a 10-episode prequel series is coming to Netflix.

    "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" will be set many years before the events of the original 1982 movie, which Henson co-directed by Frank OZ. In this new adventure, three Gelflings discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis' power, and set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.

    Netflix released the first teaser in tandem with the series announcement:Louis Leterrier ("Now You See Me") will direct and executive produce the series, produced through The Jim Henson Company.

    Here's a statement from Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company:

    "Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of 'The Dark Crystal' and has an incredible creative vision for the series. He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life. Netflix has a deep respect for my father's original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in 'The Dark Crystal' story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world."

    Shooting is scheduled to begin this fall. Netflix didn't release a premiere date, with the teaser just saying "Coming Soon."

  6. Normani Kordei Injured in 'Dancing With the Stars' Finale Rehearsals

    Normani Kordei is still considered the frontrunner to win "Dancing With the Stars" Season 24, but the Fifth Harmony singer faced a new ankle injury just days before the final dances.

    TMZ just posted video that shows Normani twisting her ankle during rehearsals with pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy. They take a 10-minute icing break to help her heal, and she'll probably be fine to keep dancing, but the timing might make Team ValMani fans a little bit nervous. Then again, it's very possible the other two couples are dealing with similar injuries and the cameras just weren't there to capture them. Or maybe we'll see those injuries later in video packages. Hopefully DWTS isn't just creating drama for effect ... but this is a reality TV show, and they do love to build dramatic storylines.

    Normani and Val are the top-scoring couple of the Spring 2017 season, well ahead of Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater, and waaaay ahead of David Ross & Lindsay Arnold.

    Those final three couples will dance two routines on Monday, May 22 -- a redemption dance redo of a previous style, and the all-important Freestyle routines, known as the make-or break dances for winners. Tuesday is the big finale, with the remaining couples doing 24-hour fusion challenge dances for final points before the Mirror Ball champions are named.

  7. Exclusive: How Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' Came to Life at Shepperton Studios

    Chances are you saw (and loved) Disney's live-action retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," which was released earlier this spring and dominated the worldwide box office. (It's the No. 1 movie of the year domestically and has made over $1 billion worldwide, so far.) It was the perfect update of the animated classic, using current technology to tell the story in new and exciting ways and was cannily cast, with Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, and Luke Evans as Gaston leading an impressive ensemble that also included Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, Kevin Kline, and Ian McKellan. The whole movie sparkled.

    But how did it all come together?

    Well, you'll find out, thanks to a huge array of special features on the home video release of "Beauty and the Beast," coming to Disney Movies Anywhere, Digital HD and Blu-ray on June 6th. And we've got an exclusive first-look at one of the featurettes, featuring some killer the behind-the-scenes footage.

    The primary focus of the featurette is the production of the movie at Shepperton Studios, the famous facility just outside of London, which, in recent years, has been host to everything from "Gravity" to "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (and everything in between). For "Beauty and the Beast," they constructed the entirety of Belle's village on the lot, along with key interiors and exteriors from other parts of the film. "We only spent two days shooting outside of the studio, and that was in a nearby forest," says Bill Condon, the director of "Beauty and the Beast." Thompson, who plays Mrs. Potts in the update, adds: "It was extraordinary, it was like coming to some sort of party, and I hate to admit it because of course I was getting paid to go to this party."

  8. Watch Jeffrey Tambor Mock Shame Ryan Seacrest for Confusing Him With Late 'Ghost' Actor

    Even the best of us make mistakes, and professional though he is, Ryan Seacrest is only human.

    The new "LIVE with Kelly and Ryan" co-host made a funny gaffe Wednesday when he confused "Transparent" star Jeffrey Tambor with fellow actor Vincent Shiavelli. The mistake came when Seacrest asked Tambor about his role in "Ghost," forcing Tambor to break the news that not only was he not in the film, but also that Schiavelli is no longer alive.

    Luckily, the moment was more funny than awkward. Tambor turned it into a joke and got them to put up a picture of Schiavelli, saying, "Look! Spitting image, right?"

    He then changed tack and started mock shaming Seacrest for the error.

    "What is wrong with you?" he said. "I came on to sell a book, not to be insulted."

    It turns out, though, this isn't the first time that someone has been convinced Tambor was the 1990 film's subway ghost. He shared the story of a time a waiter in Rome started impersonating Schiavelli's character, leaving Tambor totally confused about what was going on.

    Watch the hilarious exchange below.

  9. The First 'Star Trek: Discovery' Trailer Introduces a New Leader

    CBS is ready to show off "Star Trek: Discovery" at last.

    The network gave Trekkies what they've been waiting for Wednesday: the first official trailer for the upcoming series. The preview places the latest addition to the long-standing franchise in context, bringing us back to 10 years before Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock explored the galaxy aboard the Enterprise. As such, we meet several new characters, including budding leader Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and her apparent mentor, Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh).

    In addition to making introductions, the trailer shows off many elements of the series Trekkies will appreciate. There are Klingons, Vulcans, dangerous-looking missions, and cutting-edge technology that looks suspiciously like a flip phone.

    The series has a grand tradition to live up to. The original "Star Trek" premiered in 1966 and has spawned numerous shows, films, books, and more in the years since. We'll see how "Star Trek: Discovery" compares when it premieres this fall.

  10. Intense 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 13 Finale Sneak Peek Picks Up From Cliffhanger

    Between the sirens and the yelling, this clip from the "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 finale is officially freaking us the f*@k out.

    It looks like this might be the very first scene of Episode 24, "Ring of Fire," which airs Thursday, May 18 on ABC. It picks up directly from the final scene of Episode 23, with Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) preparing to enter Grey Sloan right as a firebomb goes off. She doesn't know yet that it's from Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton) trying to stop rapist Keith.

    The sneak peek scene shows Meredith rush to the hospital entrance, along with Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) and Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk), who were kissing in the car when the explosion happened. They are all blocked by security Seattle PD* since there's a lockdown, until Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) shows up to say she ordered the lockdown and these three are cleared to come into the building 'cause she needs their help. "Fire in the hospital trumps rapist on the loose!" But if there's a fire, maybe they should be evacuating instead of letting more people in?

    Here's the clip:And here's the full finale press release from ABC:


    "Ring of Fire" - The doctors' lives are at risk after a dangerous patient escapes the hospital room. Alex must make a hard choice in his relationship with Jo while Meredith has some big news for Nathan that brings things to a turning point, on the season finale of "Grey's Anatomy," THURSDAY, MAY 18 (8:00-9:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

    "Grey's Anatomy" stars Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey, Justin Chambers as Alex Karev, Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, James Pickens Jr. as Richard Webber, Kevin McKidd as Owen Hunt, Jessica Capshaw as Arizona Robbins, Jesse Williams as Jackson Avery, Sarah Drew as April Kepner, Caterina Scorsone as Amelia Shepherd, Camilla Luddington as Jo Wilson, Jerrika Hinton as Stephanie Edwards, Kelly McCreary as Maggie Pierce, Jason George as Ben Warren, Martin Henderson as Nathan Riggs and Giacomo Gianniotti as Andrew DeLuca.

    "Grey's Anatomy" was created and is executive produced by Shonda Rhimes ("Scandal," "How to Get Away with Murder"), Betsy Beers ("Scandal," "How to Get Away with Murder") and Mark Gordon ("Saving Private Ryan"). William Harper, Stacy McKee, Zoanne Clack and Debbie Allen are executive producers. "Grey's Anatomy" is produced by ABC Studios.

    Guest Starring are Debbie Allen as Catherine Avery and Marika Dominczyk as Eliza Minnick.

    "Ring of Fire" was written by Stacy McKee and directed by Debbie Allen.

    Don't forget that ABC just OK'd another "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff following firefighters, and you might want to keep an eye on the finale for a potential look at some of the future stars. No promises, but it would make sense.

    *UPDATE: Actor Chad Christopher reached out to clarify that they are stopped by Seattle PD, not security. "More specific Officer O'Neil... Me... Just in case 'keep an eye on the finale for a potential look at some of the future stars.'" Now you know to look out for him!

  11. This Creepy 'House of Cards' Season 5 Teaser Has 'a Simple Request' for Viewers

    Looks like Claire Underwood has gotten pretty comfortable breaking the fourth wall. This new "House of Cards" Season 5 teaser gives her a 1:25 minute speech to the cameras, asking Americans for a favor: To spy on each other, Orwell style.

    Hey, it's 13 o'clock somewhere!

    Season 5 arrives on Netflix on Tuesday, May 30, and even though it's hard to imagine how this fictional look at the White House will be any match for our current reality, Kevin Spacey's President Frank Underwood and Robin Wright's First Lady/Veep candidate Claire Underwood are going to give it their best/worst shot.

    Claire Underwood leads Netflix's chilling new promo, telling viewers she's been meaning to speak with them, because she and the president have a simple request:

    "Tell us what you see. If anything in your environment strikes you as a bit odd, a bit off, pick up the phone..."

    As she speaks, the screen distorts, emphasizing how the oddness and offness is right there in front of us.

    Is this season going to hit a little too close to home? Guess we'll find out. Check out the full Season 5 trailer over here.

  12. 'Life of Kylie' Trailer: Kylie Jenner Calls Her 'Kardashians' Spinoff 'A Gift' For Fans

    Kylie Jenner Appearance At Sugar Factory American BrasserieKylie Jenner is giving her fans a special gift: a reality TV series.

    In the first "Life of Kylie" trailer, released Monday by E!, we get a look at the latest "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" spinoff. The series, which was announced in April, will air on E!, just like the other Kardashian reality shows. What's different, however, is that "Life of Kylie" will mark the first time Jenner has been the star of the show.

    The star promises fans an inside look at her life, not just the image she says she feels "constantly pressured to keep up with." In fact, Jenner describes the show as "like a therapy session." From what we've seen in the trailer, she'll deal with the downsides of fame, continue building her empire, and goof around with friends.

    Jenner has a rabid fan base, so naturally they're tweeting their excitement in response to the trailer.

    life of kylie is definitely going to be my favorite show. i already know

  13. 'GLOW' Trailer: The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling Enter the Ring

    The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are ready to rumble.

    Netflix released a new trailer Monday for "GLOW," its upcoming comedy-drama starring Alison Brie. The preview introduces her character, Ruth, and the other unconventional women who will be at the center of the ring -- complete with teased hair, bright leotards, and legwarmers aplenty.

    Set in the '80s, the series follows Ruth, a struggling actress, as she joins a women's professional wrestling circuit as a way to get in front of the camera. As the trailer shows, the Gorgeous Ladies are supposed to put on a unique show. To entertain, they take on specific (and often stereotypical) characters and build storylines, led by Sam (Marc Maron), a has-been movie director with a drug problem. Of course, the power struggles aren't just in front of the camera; Ruth finds a rival in Debbie (Betty Gilpin), an actress trying to make her comeback.

    Set for 10 episodes, "GLOW" premieres June 23 on Netflix.

  14. 'SNL,' This Perfect 'Bachelorette' Sketch Should Not Have Been Cut for Time

    It's not too late for "Saturday Night Live" to re-cut this hilarious -- and cringe-worthy -- spoof of ABC's "The Bachelorette" and air it before the premiere of Rachel Lindsay's season.

    All they'd have to do is cut out former host Chris Pine's bit. Granted, he had some of the funniest stuff, but if the nearly 4-minute time was really a concern, just cut it down a bit and air it during next week's finale. Maybe even sub in a role for finale host Dwayne Johnson? Because if SNL can find time for a fake romance between Kyle Mooney and Leslie Jones (and it found 4:26 minutes during Melissa McCarthy's May 13 episode), it can make room for this timely parody, which actually gives Sasheer Zamata something to do.

    Watch this and explain why it was cut in favor of, say, Pine's "World Peace Rap":Rachel Lindsay's real season of "The Bachelorette" premieres Monday, May 22 at 9 p.m. on ABC.

    "SNL" will close Season 42 next Saturday, May 20, with host Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and musical guest Katy Perry.

  15. 'Gypsy' Teaser: Naomi Watts Makes Unconvincing Promise to Do No Harm

    A promise usually seems reassuring, but in Netflix's new "Gypsy" teaser, that's not the case at all.

    The streaming service released the preview Thursday, and it is both intense and suspenseful. Series star Naomi Watts is front and center as a therapist clearly skirting her ethical responsibilities. The teaser interweaves scenes of her swearing an oath to, among other things, do no harm to her patients, with scenes in which she directly violates that promise.

    "I will always provide a safe and trusting haven for my patients," she says. "I will remain objective in my relationships. I will not violate the physical boundaries of the patient. And will always do no harm."

    In the series, Watts's character, Jean Holloway, is a Manhattan-based therapist who blurs the lines between her personal and professional lives. That leads to all kinds of problems, both for her and the people around her. Are you curious yet?

    "Gypsy" premieres June 30 on Netflix.

  16. 'Twin Peaks' Teaser: Miguel Ferrer Scene Is Bittersweet for Fans

    Exciting as the return of "Twin Peaks" is, the latest teaser brought a sad reminder: Not all of the series' stars are still with us.

    Miguel Ferrer appears as his FBI agent character Albert Rosenfield in the preview, released Thursday, in what turned out to be his final TV role. With the actor having died in January after battling throat cancer, the scene underscores the loss of a cast member who had been with the series from the beginning. Ferrer played Rosenfield for two seasons, plus appeared in the 1992 film "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me."

    Heartbreaking as it is, we're glad the series was revived while the actor was still alive. Seeing Rosenfield and his FBI colleague Cole Gordon (David Lynch) together again was long overdue.

    Many fans noted Ferrer's appearance and turned to Twitter as an outlet for their emotions.

    Just seeing Miguel Ferrer makes me cry. I am so glad he was able to be in season 3 before he passed.

    — best of twin peaks (@twinpeakstuff) May 11, 2017

    Today's Thing That Will Get Me Through the Day: new clip of David Lynch grabbing Miguel Ferrer's shoulder and yelling "Albert!"

    Reminder that there is apparently "a lot" of Miguel Ferrer in the new season of Twin Peaks, and that sometimes we are blessed.

    — Andrew Ihla 🦉 (@AndrewIhla) May 11, 2017

    It is happening again!

    So good to see Miguel Ferrer properly in this, I'm hopeful and confident that it will be worthy of his last efforts.

    — James Goldson (@JGldTweet) May 11, 2017

    @ThatsOurWaldo Best so far. Great to see Miguel Ferrer as Albert, and looks like the interior of the Great Northern hasn't changed much!

    — Andrew Francis (@versio1n) May 11, 2017

    Ferrer's death was one of a series of recent losses for "Twin Peaks" fans; it was followed by the deaths of Michael Parks in May and Warren Frost in February. Luckily, the revival is the perfect way to remember their lives and work. "Twin Peaks" returns May 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.

  17. 'Top of the Lake: China Girl' Trailer Unites Elisabeth Moss, Nicole Kidman & Gwendoline Christie

    Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) and Miranda Hilmarson (Gwendoline Christie) - Top of the Lake _ Season 2 - Photo Credit:  See-Saw Films (TOTL2) Holdings Pty Ltd/SundanceTVFinally, Peggy Olson and Brienne of Tarth are in the same TV series!

    The second season of "Top of the Lake" has a dream team cast, and a troubling new trailer. In "Top of the Lake: China Girl," Elisabeth Moss returns to her Golden Globe-winning role, this time joined by Nicole Kidman (and her amazing new hair) and "Game of Thrones" star Gwendoline Christie.

    Here's the synopsis from SundanceTV:

    "Top of the Lake: China Girl' is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realizes 'China Girl' didn't die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But her search to discover 'China Girl's' identity will take her into the city's darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart."

    Here's the trailer:Based on the trailer, it looks like Kidman plays the adopted mother of Robin's biological child, who ends up wrapped up in the greater mystery.

    "Top of the Lake: China Girl" -- which also stars David Dencik, Alice Englert, and Ewen Leslie -- premieres this month at the Cannes Film Festival. It will then air on SundanceTV in the U.S. in September. New episodes will stream on Hulu the day after they air. In the meantime, "Mad Men" alum Moss can now be seen as another badass woman fighting the system in Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale."

  18. Betty White's 'Poker Face' Is the Cutest Thing You'll See Today

    Betty White is the treasure we don't deserve. She may be the one star everyone loves. Yesterday, she got herself trending on Twitter again, which always gets fans nervous -- because she's 95. But don't you worry, 'cause she was on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" last night and absolutely delighted the host, her fellow guests Ben McKenzie and Amy Brenneman, and the audience.

    She even charmed the cynical YouTubers; as one wrote in the comments, "Betty White breaks my heart with adoration, when i hear her i want to sit her down, give her a cup of tea and a scone and let her talk about anything she wants to talk about whilst i mow her lawn and take her trash out."

    James Corden asked Betty about the regular poker games she plays with her friends, trying to get himself invited. She said they don't play for money, but they play for blood. He asked her to show her best poker face -- if she picked up her cards and had nothing, but wanted to convince him she did have a good hand, how would she look at him.

    Her poker face response comes at the :56 mark of the video and it's LOL adorable:In the second video, Corden gets Betty White, Amy Brenneman, and Ben McKenzie to talk about their love stories. Amy has been married for 21 years. Ben -- if you can believe it -- forgot that he met his current co-star/fiancee Morena Baccarin on the set of "The O.C." many years ago. He apparently "blew her off," because he was "an idiot" at 25. Thankfully they reconnected on the recently renewed "Gotham."

    Betty's story is, of course, the best, talking about the great love of her life, Allen Ludden, to whom she was married from 1963 to his death in 1981. "God bless him, he kept the romance going all the time. I always felt I was special to him. It does lift a girl's morale a lot. So we had just a great rapport."

    The whole video is a heartwarmer:

    Saturday Night Live - Season 42Things are about to get Spicey once again on "Saturday Night Live."

    Melissa McCarthy is set to host the late-night sketch comedy series on May 13, so naturally she's bringing back her hilarious Sean Spicer impression. "SNL" released a new promo for the episode Thursday, and it features McCarthy transforming into the White House press secretary, set to the show tune "I Feel Pretty." Unfortunately, we don't get to watch the whole complicated process, but it's still amusing to see McCarthy sit down in the makeup chair as herself and emerge as a surprisingly jovial version of Spicer.

    The current "SNL" season has been full of hilarious impersonations of political figures. Big-name stars like McCarthy and Alec Baldwin have seriously committed to their respective roles, returning frequently as Spicer and President Donald Trump. That McCarthy is already busting out her scowl and suit for the episode is no surprise, but it's a treat nonetheless.

    The actress will be joined by musical guest Haim when she hosts on May 13. "SNL" airs live on both coasts on Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. ET.

  20. 'Grey's Anatomy' Sneak Peek Hints at a Doctor in Danger

    ABC's 'Grey's Anatomy' - Season ThirteenThere's trouble coming to "Grey's Anatomy," and while that's par for the course, it looks like one at least one Grey Sloan doctor's life may be in immediate danger.

    ABC released a new sneak peek Wednesday via TVLine ahead of Episode 23, "True Colors," and it's looking more and more like we should be worrying about the safety of Dr. Edwards (Jerrika Hinton). Previous teasers made it clear something was wrong at the hospital, and that's compounded in the latest clip. In it, we see Dr. Avery (Jesse Williams) reveal that he has been trying to get in touch with Edwards, and she isn't responding.

    That wouldn't be so alarming if it were the only strange thing taking place, but we also see her rolling a dangerous patient down the hall. Whatever is going on, it's enough to warrant Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) calling a Code Orange.

    There has been speculation that Hinton is leaving "Grey's Anatomy" ever since she nabbed a role in an HBO drama. She very well could be killed off, but we still hope she'll depart without meeting a grisly end. Either way, the question might not be answered for a while -- we've been promised a huge cliffhanger in the season finale. Of course.

    "Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

  21. David Beckham Hardly Looks Like Himself in 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' Cameo Clip

    A familiar face in "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" looks decidedly unfamiliar.

    Soccer star David Beckham makes his acting debut in the film, but if you didn't know to look for him, you might miss him altogether. As we can see in a new clip released by Warner Bros. Tuesday, he barely looks like himself. The retired athlete underwent some serious Hollywood makeup magic to go from one-time People's Sexiest Man Alive awardee to battle-worn medieval man.

    Beckham's temporary look is on full display in the clip. With a face full of scars and yellowed teeth, he watches as Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) approaches the stone to attempt to pull out the sword Excalibur. He is none too impressed with the future king at first -- but he probably soon comes to regret his insults.

    The scene shows Beckham's prosthetic scars, but Beckham offered a even better look in a photo he posted on Instagram in late March.

    Rough day at the office @kingarthurmovie @guyritchie

  22. Strap In for the Hilariously Unsexy 'Fifty Shades Darker' Honest Trailer  

    It doesn't matter if you loved, hated, never watched, never cared about, or never even heard of "Fifty Shades Darker": You will laugh out loud at least once at Screen Junkies's' Honest Trailer for it. The "Fifty Shades of Grey" sequel may not have been that sexy, but damn is it funny to watch "another horrifying reminder that your aunt probably gets off to this."

    Voice-over: "You marveled at the first movie's total lack of sex appeal. Now the steamiest story you can buy at Target is back, and it's cranking the naughty down from room temp to ice cold, in this two hour movie that only has about 10 minutes of actual sex in it. Where they scale back the bondage and amp up the normal boring couple stuff."

    Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson): "You want a vanilla relationship?'"

    Voice-over: "No! That is not why I wore an overcoat to the theater. The big voice guy doesn't want vanilla. He wants some rocky road!"

    That's just the start of the video, and it gets better from there, mocking Ana for her lack of emotion and only personality trait -- confusion about what should and should not be put in her butt -- and calling out "walking red flag" Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for his creepy mommy issues:

    Maybe there is only a "Fifty Fifty" chance they won't get through the next one, but "Fifty Shades Freed" is coming out February 9, 2018, and you know fans will want to see another Honest Trailer for it. Meanwhile, "Fifty Shades Darker" just came out on DVD and Blu-ray, in case you want to see what all of the room temp fuss is about.

  23. Simone Biles & Bonner Bolton Fire Back at 'DWTS' Judges: 'I Don't Have a Lot of Respect for It'

    The "Dancing With the Stars" Season 24 Quarterfinals had a mean-spirited edge to it that pretty much everyone felt. The fans left upset. The stars left upset. Almost everyone was mad about something, except maybe Team ValMani, since Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy were the only ones to be spared by the knife-wielding judges.

    The other four couples were hit fairly hard, especially Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess -- who left at the end of their tough night, which included a snide remark from head judge Len Goodman -- and Simone Biles & Sasha Farber -- who were given maddening mixed messages on her smile, personality, and life experience. Simone later admitted she left the ballroom with tears in her eyes.


    After Bonner's first dance, Len made a passive-aggressive comment that it's America's fault that Bonner was still around when he was in over his head and should've been gone by now. Even judge Carrie Ann Inaba looked shocked after that jab...

    CAI's reaction after what Len said to Bonner on his first performance though...

    ...and Bonner and Sharna were not pleased with the remark either.

    "I was really taken back that Len said that," Sharna Burgess told ET Canada. "I would think that Len understands that after 24 season on 'Dancing With the Stars,' it's not always just dance, it's that person and their story and their inspiration. Why is it a bad thing that he's been inspiring people for eight weeks?" Bolton added, "It's a good thing I didn't come do this show for those judges."

    Bonner told Glamour it was "a relief" to know he wouldn't have to dance again, since he was in a lot of pain through the whole competition. Here's what he said when asked about Len's comment: "I don't appreciate much of what the judges said throughout the whole season to me. I don't have a lot of respect for it, but I'm thankful for the experience I got to have here, the other people I got to meet, how much I discovered I can move again and inspire others throughout my movement, and the strength that I dug down deep to find and do this."

    SIMONE & SASHAThe judges didn't really seem to have much constructive dance criticism for Simone after her Foxtrot, they called it "pretty" and thought it was fine, but they called her out on not showing enough personality. Both Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann wanted to see more emotional range and expression from Simone, beyond her ever-present smile (which they seemed to see as fake). Simone tried to explain backstage that she hasn't had that much life experience since she's spent her life in a gymnasium. She's not an actress, so it's hard for her to show what she hasn't felt.

    Later, after her trio Paso Doble, she kept a serious expression on her face through the judging, and host Tom Bergeron said he had expected her to smile at some of the compliments. Simone then smiled and quipped, "Smiling doesn't win you gold medals."

    @SashaFarber face when @Simone_Biles said : "smiling doesn't win you Gold medals" is ....amazing 😂😂 priceless #dwts

    The live audience oooohed, as if she shot back something controversial, but one minute they basically say her smile is an empty mask and the next second she's expected to keep up that smile?

    After the show, Simone told Entertainment Tonight, "You don't know which wild card of sexy or of happy they want to bring, and you almost have to read their minds and find it. [...] I had tears in my eyes. I almost ran to the bathroom at one point, but I pulled it together. [...] I feel like everyone has their own opinion, clearly, and I feel it's just how you take it. I feel like I am trying [to show emotion], I am being honest, but if they don't see that, I don't know what more I can do."

    Simone added to other backstage reporters (via Glamour), "I feel like any other 20-year-old has gone through a lot of the emotions [the judges want to see], but I've spent my whole life in a gym training for something I've dreamed of since I was a little girl. I think they think since I'm 20, I should have gone through those life experiences, but I missed out on all of that. That's why I'm taking a year off to try and go find it, you know? Then I'll get back to training."

    Pro Sasha Farber told Glamour the judges "are there to do their job. They were hard on everyone today. Standing there and getting those scores, I know exactly how Simone is; she's only 20, and to hear all those things, I could feel her heart just hurting. I'm kind of sorry she had to go through that. I'm right here for [her], and next week is all different." Sasha's fiancee, pro Emma Slater -- who is dancing with Rashad Jennings -- told Glamour backstage, "I would hate to think that Simone took anything to heart in a negative way. It kind of felt like she did."

    Next week is the Semifinals, and we can only hope the judges will be in a kinder mood, so the stars who don't win at least have a positive journey along the way.

  24. 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Teaser Reveals Secret, Nazi-Fighting History

    A new teaser for "Transformers: The Last Knight" released today reveals that the Transformers have always been here to protect us, even from Nazis.

    As Anthony Hopkins says in voiceover, as serious as any History Channel narrator: "It started as legend. One of the greatest of all. One of the oldest of all. But every legend has a secret. They have been here forever, in the shadows. To protect Earth from what was destined to arrive. A thousand years, we've kept it hidden... the secret history of Transformers."

    We're treated to shots of the Transformers strolling through ancient buildings, crossing swords in a Musketeers-type salute and, of course, kicking Nazi ass. That's one history lesson we missed!

    Watch the clip here:

    They've always been legendary; now you know why. #Transformers

  25. Prisoners Demand Justice in New 'Orange is the New Black' Season 5 Trailer

    OITNB Season 5The rioting women of Litchfield demand justice -- and basic human rights -- in the new trailer for Season 5 of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black."

    After the death last season of Poussey (Samira Wiley), Taystee (Danielle Brooks) confronts warden Joe Caputo (Nick Sandow), telling him, "You done a girl wrong, Mr. Caputo, and we want justice."

    The women are forming a united front... except for Piper (Taylor Schilling), apparently. When she asks Taystee how she can help, she's told "People ain't gonna like you."

    On a lighter note, the inmates suggest some off-the-wall ideas as part of their demands, including an ice cream sundae bar and an anti-gravity chamber. Sounds reasonable!

    "We're gonna give 'em a show," says Big Boo (Lea DeLaria). Let's hope so!

    The show returns June 9.
