Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Joins ‘iZombie’!

As much as it pains me, iZombie’s fifth season will be its last season. Rob Thomas’s show, based on the comic-book series by DC’s Vertigo; centers around Liv Moore, who became a zombie after a boat party gone wrong. Throughout the seasons, we’ve seen Liv deal with being the only zombie in the city, to more multiplying, friends finding out, to now the whole world knowing. Seattle was sealed off as a result and the fourth season spent much of its time trying to balance the tense social climate, while making sure the US government didn’t just nuke their city

He is also big into technology and video games. From the classic NES to the PS4, he has played them all. He runs the Geek Vibes Nation Twitter account and is also the

‘Black Panther’ Coming to Netflix

In case you missed the news, Marvel’s Black Panther is a record breaker. With raking in over $700 million dollars domestically and being the first film to appear on Saudi Arabian theater screens after a 35-year ban, Black Panther is a powerhouse that showed everyone that there needs to be more diversity in film-making. Not only will it be lucrative, but it’s extremely important for representation. Black Panther was both action-packed and visually stunning, a great solo-film for the king of Wakanda. #BlackPanther will be available on @netflix on September 4 🚨 pic.twitter.com/oHy6oLe7x1 — Marvelous Realm (@MarvelousRealm) August 21, 2018

Deborah Riley Talks About ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Set Designs

While the 70th Annual Emmy Awards are rapidly approaching, Deborah Riley took some time to talk to Deadline about the various production designs of season 8. Riley, who is up for the Emmy for Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Period Or Fantasy Program, has been a part of the Game of Thrones crew since season 4, designing sets like Dragonstone, the House of Black and White, The Pyramids of Mereen, and the Loot Train Attack.

A Prayer for Mad Sweeney: What if Sean Harris Hadn’t Left American Gods?

Recasts happen all the time. A lot of our favorite on-screen characters landed that position because someone else had stepped away. Whatever cinematic powers above willed for the original pick to be gone and to bring in who rightfully deserved that role. While it might not always be the case, we can, for the most part; all agree that Pablo Schreiber’s casting in STARZ American Gods as Mad Sweeney was a match made in heaven. Sweeney is a leprechaun who aids Mr. Wednesday, much to his chagrin; and is loosely based on the lore of Buile Shuibhne – an Irish

Eleven With No Powers? Millie Bobby Brown Hopes So

Stranger Things is currently filming its third season which will debut next Summer but there is no denying that Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven has been the star of the show. In the show, Eleven has telekinetic abilities, which in season 2 she tapped into them even more but we still might have seen just how powerful she can be. During an interview with Variety Brown actually stated she would like to see Eleven lose her powers: “I think Eleven should sacrifice herself in some way, That’s how I kind of want that situation to go. I want to have her

Veronica Mars Coming to Hulu?

Rob Thomas (not the lead singer of Matchbox 20), is the greatest showrunner of all time. Don’t believe me? Every show he produces is gold and apparently, no one can get enough of Veronica Mars. After three seasons and a movie, it seems that Veronica Mars is coming back with a whole revival series on Hulu. Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell are all on board, so get ready to relive the good ol’ days. There are really no other details just yet, but it is admirable how dedicated those surrounding the show are to its legacy. And despite us

Brendan Fraser Cast in Live-Action Doom Patrol

For any 90s kid, Brendan Fraser is an icon. He was in all of our favorite movies growing up and after a hiatus, it seems Fraser is slowly stepping back into Hollywood. If you have the time, you should take a moment to read Fraser’s write-up with GQ magazine, as it is both beautiful and heartbreaking. In the most recent years, Fraser has gotten more into television with Texas Rising, The Affair, and Trust. Fraser will also be joining DC’s upcoming Doom Patrol series, which will be featured on the streaming service DC Universe. Fraser will play one of the
