Earlier today, Terry Crews testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, recounting how his own allegations against Hollywood agent Adam Venit have personally — and professionally — affected him. During that testimony, Crews revealed that he won’t be appearing in Expendables 4 because the producer of the sequel, Avi Lerner, allegedly threatened “troubles” if Crews refused to withdraw his civil lawsuit against Venit.
We’re not quite ready to say goodbye to Portlandia just yet, but thankfully, we have time. The ever-weird social satire will return for its eighth and final season in January, while the traditionally stacked guest roster now includes Tessa Thompson, Rachel Bloom and the Oh, Hello guys.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans were admittedly nervous when the majority of FOX renewals came and went without mention of our favorite detectives. Thankfully, Jake, Amy, Terry, Boyle, Gina, Rosa and Captain Holt will keep the Nine-Nine open another year, as FOX officially puts them on the case.
We’ve gotten a glimpse of Sylvester Stallone’s Netflix Ultimate Beastmaster before, but the full preview is far more awe (and terror)-inspiring. See for yourself in the first official trailer, as international competitors face the largest obstacle course set ever built for an unscripted series.
Not long ago we learned that Idiocracy director Mike Judge and screenwriter Etan Cohen were planning on making a series of anti-Trump ads for the coming election, which would feature Terry Crews reprising his role as President Camacho. Not long after that, it was revealed that the ads wouldn’t be happening after all, and in a new interview, Judge himself explains why the idea ultimately fell apart.
Idiocracy wasn’t just a hilarious satirical comedy, it felt eerily prescient. In the years since Mike Judge’s film hit theaters, “Idiocracy is real life” has become a running joke, particularly now that Donald Trump is running for President, with many noting the resemblance between the presumptive Republican nominee and the fictional President played by Terry Crews. It’s a fairly easy (and pretty funny) comparison to make, and in case you were wondering, the filmmakers themselves see it, too.
Inevitably unquestioned lord and master of TV, Netflix has been pushing into a variety of different genres for its original programming, and now has Sylvester Stallone himself in mind to take on the reality competition. Sly will executive produce a new international Ultimate Beastmaster competition, as teams from all over the world compete to master an obstacle course.
