In that vein, Kitsch will next embark on perhaps his most difficult role yet: portraying David Koresh in Waco, a miniseries about the Waco siege set to premiere on the Paramount Network early next year. The show’s all-star cast includes Michael Shannon, Melissa Benoist, Andrea Riseborough, John Leguizamo, and Rory Culkin, and will run over six one-hour episodes.

Reviving ophelia lifetime
Apart from “Avatar,” the 3D revival was always an annoying scam — a transparent way to jack up ticket prices, since what you were getting, in movie after movie (from “Journey to the Center of the Earth” to “Kung Fu Panda 2” to “Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert”), was a sea of vaguely “heightened” yet naggingly darkened images that never came close to creating the experience they were supposed to. 3D, as a consumer enticement, was followed by the replacement of ordinary theater seats with glorified La-Z-Boy seating and, in certain markets, by the singular horror known as 4DX, the carnival-ride “enhancement” of movies I paid for exactly once, buying the privilege of getting sprayed with water and having my seat swivel and bump around during car chases. … [Read more...] about The Popcorn Conundrum: When Movie Theaters Reopen, Will They Ban Concessions?

When I spoke to Michael Unger about what shows I might be doing the next school year, he made mention of his musical adaptation and it really seemed the perfect choice. The fact that it was created in a community much like ours, that had experienced the same pain and tragedy, made it seem meant to be.

Somehow, the day had produced that singular story, when it seemed prone to produce a batch of others. Just past mid-round, the board bustled with four guys at 10 under par, four at 9 under par and four at 8 under par. Of those 12 players, eight operated from ages between 21 and 26. "Yeah, there was a lot of a kind of whiplash," Day said. "Everything was coming and going." … [Read more...] about Morikawa triumphs at PGA Championship
There is likely more risk than reward waiting for Biden as he weighs whether to pick a woman of color to serve as his running mate. Such a decision would be historic. But it's far from certain that a Black female vice presidential nominee would on its own produce the kind of strong African American turnout Democrats need to defeat Trump. … [Read more...] about 2020 Watch: How will Joe Biden handle the spotlight?
