  9. Patrick Stewart Joins the 'Charlie's Angels' Reboot; Here's Everything We Know
    The Angels are heading to the big screen once again. Originally a TV series in the 1970s, Charlie's Angels was later adapted into a 2000 action comedy that continued the canon of the show, and that spawned one sequel three years later. In 2011, there was a TV series reboot on the small screen, but it was very short-lived.

Schrader also gets a terrific supporting performance from...
