Wake up to the latest pop culture headlines, including news about Bella Hadid and The Weeknd's Cannes kiss.
FX is moving full steam ahead with "Mayans MC," officially ordering the long-in-the-works "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff to series with a 10-episode order.
Pilot episodes don’t always go smoothly from conception to broadcast. An upcoming spinoff for FX is only the latest to go through cast changes.
Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden where he talked about the perils of filming his upcoming movie, The Lost City of Z, in the Colombian jungle. Hunnam said there were snakes, scorpions, tarantulas, and tons of mosquitos, but it was in his hotel room where he really ran into trouble.
Richard Cabral knows what you were thinking after last Sunday’s episode of American Crime: “‘Please don’t tell me that you hurt the little white boy.’ That’s what a couple people were saying on social media,” he says. In this Sunday’s episode of the ABC drama, viewers see the aftermath of that beating — and of Luis (Benito Martinez) learning the fate of his son, Teo, who went missing while working on the farm. Cabral, who received an Emmy nomination for Season 1 of the John Ridley anthology series, spoke to Yahoo TV about the dynamic between Isaac and Coy, and about his next high-profile gig — playing Johnny “El Coco” Cruz in FX’s much-anticipated Sons of Anarchy spinoff pilot, Mayans MC, which he begins filming Monday.
Here’s one of the safer statements you could make about today’s TV landscape: it will always be in a better state when Jimmy Smits is a part of it. Smits talked to Yahoo TV about joining the cast of one of his favorite TV series and how "24: Legacy" has required him to be a little more of an action star than he’d planned to be.
With just two episodes left in Pitch’s first season, the drama is being kicked up a notch. Blip isn’t happy, obviously, Mo McRae told us when he stopped by for a Facebook Live chat earlier this week. Asked how fans will feel at the end of the Dec. 8 season finale, McRae didn’t hesitate to give an answer.
Animal Kingdom: The YA Cross Between Sons of Anarchy and Point Break A tough little drama about a group of surly pretty-boys who commit crimes at the command of their hard-as-manicured-nails mother, Animal Kingdom, premiering Tuesday on TNT, is a showcase for two familiar faces: Ellen Barkin as the crime boss, and Scott Speedman (Felicity) as one of the guys she orders around. This Animal Kingdom seems, early on, a YA version of Sons of Anarchy, with Barkin’s character the equivalent of Katey Sagal’s Gemma. The brothers—Craig (Ben Robson), Deran (Jake Weary), and especially Pope, played by Shawn Hatosy from that excellent TNT series Southland—are muscled, tattooed, ratty-haired.
Jan. 21 is National Hug Day, according to Twitter, and that’s fine by us: It gives us an excuse to remember all the hugs that have moved us on TV shows over the years. After his father leaves him a second time, Will asks Uncle Phil why his dad doesn’t love him. Uncle Phil just gives him a giant hug — and tosses Will’s hat aside so he can get even closer.
In Billions–which hopes to comfort your loss of The Affair Sunday nights on Showtime–Damian Lewis stars as Bobby Axelrod, a hedge-fund billionaire who favors tight t-shirts as formal wear and likes Metallica cranked up to 11. Billions, created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and financial journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin, is set up to be a high-quality, insider look at insider trading, with the promise that we’ll see a greedy egomaniac brought low. For every macho-creep thing done by Axe—that’s what everyone who really knows Axelrod calls him—he’s also shown to be a frequently generous guy, loyal to old friends and an active participant in a solid marriage to Malin Akerman’s Lara.

This scheming underbutler is Downtown Abbey’s resident antagonist, but he’s also one of the most fascinating villains on television. Played to perfection by Robert James-Collier, Thomas Barrow is the British period drama’s main manipulator, a man who blackmails lady’s maids and lies about his father dying.
Justified’s artistic achievement was to bring to television the Elmore Leonard style — which was to efface style, to keep you off-balance, unsure of where your sympathy is supposed to fall, and to prevent you from figuring out not only where the story is going, but who the real hero, in any given scene, may be. The extra-long edition was simultaneously very much in keeping with its 1960s time-period, but also jarringly 21st-century in its sensibility.
After a three-season journey from Felicity comically ogling Oliver’s shirtless torso to him telling her that he loves her, it happened. Fearing they’d never see each other again and hearing Felicity say that she loves him, too, Oliver made the first move, taking off her glasses. Just when you’re thinking, Yes! A woman on Game of Thrones gets to have consensual sex this season!, Dany tells her jealous lover, Daario, that she couldn’t marry him even if she wanted to: “Then you are the only person in Meereen who’s not free,” he tells her.
The Emmys, of course, have categories to honor variety talk series, as well as their writing, directing, lighting, picture editing, etc. But there’s no category to single out late night hosts (just reality TV ones). With David Letterman and Jon Stewart both effectively retiring, they’d be the sentimental favorites, but also deserving.
On January 10, 1999, a bathrobe-clad Tony Soprano first bent over to pick up a Star-Ledger in his driveway — and TV changed forever. No reality TV here, folks: just the 99 richest, most fascinating fictional characters from both comedies and dramas to grace the small screen over the past decade and a half.
