I think I could play evil characters, but the way this business works is, if you're successful at something, everybody wants you to keep doing it again — you know: 'Let's get that Ferris Bueller guy.' A couple of times I've been sent evil characters, but even then, they're usually lovable boyish types who happen to murder women.

The trailer for the Mr. Rogers documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor."

Focus Features’ upcoming documentary about Fred Rogers is trying to put audiences deep in their feelings and taking no prisoners in the process.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” delves into the life of the man who invited the entire world to his neighborhood and spent more than three decades teaching children about life, death and all that comes in between.

“If you take all the elements that make good television and do the exact opposite, you have ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,’” series producer Margy Whitmer says in the trailer.

Kim Campbell, widow of Glen Campbell, says she never kept the musician’s children from visiting their father while he was alive. And as for the will that shut out three of his eight kids, well, that was their dad’s choice, she says. 

“It's a nightmare to have people on the internet threatening to kill you because they think that you're this horrible person that wouldn't let people visit, which is totally false,” Kim told “Inside Edition” on Monday. 

The Campbell family has been roiled with lawsuits before and since Glen’s death in August 2017. Last week, Kim sued the estate for reimbursement of more than a half-million dollars in expenses she incurred while caring for her husband when he had Alzheimer’s. 

Freeform has released a new trailer for “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” revealing more details about the story driving the upcoming teen superhero show. 

The trailer plays up the connection between Olivia Holt’s Tandy Bowen (Dagger) and Aubrey Joseph’s Tyrone Johnson (Cloak), setting them up as a “divine pairing.” Although according to the ominous voiceover, “one will live and one will die.”

But even Tandy and Ty themselves note how the universe keeps both pushing them together and pulling them apart.

From the firing of Andrew McCabe to the latest twist in the Stormy Daniels saga, it was just another manic Monday for Seth Meyers as he surveyed a weekend’s worth of Donald Trump drama. 

“Man, crazy [stuff] happens so fast in this presidency. Sometimes it feels like I’m binge-watching it,” noted the “Late Night” host as he kicked off his latest “A Closer Look” segment Monday night. 

Among the litany of topics to tackle: Trump suing Daniels for breaching an alleged hush agreement; Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin; Facebook suspending the Trump campaign’s data firm; Trump’s Twitter attacks against Robert S. Mueller III, James B. Comey and McCabe; and his firing of the former FBI deputy director

Left Bank Pictures is attempting to quell the firestorm sparked last week over pay disparity on “The Crown.”

Public outcry flared up after producers revealed that Matt Smith, who portrayed Prince Philip in the first two seasons, was paid more than Claire Foy, who wore the titular crown as Queen Elizabeth II. 

When the series premiered in 2016, Foy was perhaps best known for her turn as Anne Boleyn in BBC2’s “Wolf Hall” and Smith was coming off  a nearly five-year stint as the 11th Doctor on “Doctor Who.”

Time’s Up organizers are urging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to uncover why a Manhattan district attorney decided against prosecuting Harvey Weinstein after a weekend report indicated that the D.A.’s office mishandled a 2015 case against the former film mogul.

On Saturday, New York magazine published a story detailing Dist. Atty. Cyrus Vance Jr.’s handling of Ambra Battilana’s sexual-assault case against Weinstein. Disturbed by the report, Time’s Up organizers on Sunday published an open letter on the magazine’s Cut blog calling on Cuomo to launch an internal investigation “to ensure that prosecutorial integrity was maintained and to restore faith in the DA’s office.”

Battilana, an Italian-born model who was 22 at the time, filed a complaint in 2015 accusing Weinstein of touching her breasts during a business meeting in his Tribeca office. The complaint was dismissed the following month.
