For "Game of Thrones" fans scavenging the Internet for spoilers about Season 7, the return of one particular, potentially pivotal, character from the past has been an open secret for some time.
But with Joe Dempsie's appearance at the world premiere of the first episode of the acclaimed HBO drama in Los Angeles on Wednesday, it is official: Gendry is coming back.
While Dempsie was mum on the details of what his blacksmithing-secret son of Robert Baratheon character has been up to since we last saw him rowing away from Dragonstone in the third season finale, he was excited about rejoining the acclaimed drama.
Brandon Rogers didn't get a chance to show America the full scope of his musical potential. But "America's Got Talent" is offering viewers a glimpse of what might have been.
In March, Rogers auditioned for the NBC reality competition with a staggering rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon in the Sky." And while the 29-year-old Virginia native had previously suspended his musical aspirations to pursue a career in medicine, Rogers' performance eclipsed his day job. A quadruple-nod from the judges panel and an ebullient standing ovation confirmed that this physician could sing.
Rogers earned a ticket through to the next round of "AGT," but he never made it there. On June 11, Rogers died after a freak car accident the day before.
Woody Harrelson has faith in the "Star Wars" franchise's upcoming Han Solo spinoff, which was recently dropped in the lap of director Ron Howard.
"I think I read some stuff where people were worried about the fate of this movie. I wouldn't worry. The Force is still very much with it," Harrelson, who plays a young Han Solo's mentor in the movie, recently told the Hollywood Reporter.
In his interview published online on Wednesday, the "Cheers" alum explained how he turned down the role twice, just as he did with the part of Katniss Everdeen's mentor, Haymitch Abernathy, in the blockbuster "Hunger Games" franchise.
Two bare-breasted activists rushed the stage during a performance of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz Band in Hamburg, Germany, on Tuesday night in an effort to bring fresh attention to allegations of past sexual abuse against the 81-year-old filmmaker.
The protesters — bearing quotes on their torsos from a 2014 open letter by Allen's daughter Dylan Farrow, in which she alleged he had sexually abused her as a child — yelled, "Stop the culture of silence!" before being pulled off the stage by security.
The two women were members of an international women's rights collective called Femen, according to its Facebook page. The group — which describes itself on its website as "a special force of feminism, its spearhead militant unit, modern incarnation of fearless and free Amazons" — has staged similar high-profile public protests over abortion rights and female genital mutilation, among other issues.
Tuesday was Donald Trump Jr.'s day in the glare of comedy. In advance of the New York Times' plan to publish a series of emails he exchanged with Rob Goldstone detailing a Russian offer for dirt on Hillary Clinton and Trump's delighted willingness to receive it, the president's son released them himself.
It was news late-night hosts were themselves visibly delighted to receive – the jokes didn't even need to write themselves. It was enough merely to recount the facts in detail. (But there were jokes, too.)
"Do you guys realize how bigly that is?" asked an obviously amused Trevor Noah on "The Daily Show." "This is the best comedy show ever .… This two-legged brain foreclosure thought that the best way to get out of this mess would be to jump into it himself.
Quentin Tarantino is reportedly developing a film about the Manson family murders.
Because conspiracy theories and mass slayings sound like perfect fodder for a Tarantino film, no?
The unique take on L.A.'s grisly 1969 murders is said to be written by Tarantino, who is putting the finishing touches on the script and is talking to Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence to fill out the cast, the Hollywood Reporter said.
An album of vaulted, mostly unheard Michael Jackson recordings will be auctioned off by New York auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll later this month, along with a host of items from the personal collection of the late King of Pop.
Appearing as a blank, Sony CD-R with the word “Bible” written in blue sharpie, the album features 12 mastered tracks, all with completed vocals from Jackson.
A handful of the songs — “Monster,” “Breaking News” and “Keep Your Head Up” — appeared on “Michael,” a collection of unreleased material cobbled from tracks the singer was crafting in his final years and released a year after his 2009 death by Sony Records and Jackson’s estate.
Joe Scarborough might be lucky in love, but it appears his relationship with the Republican Party is on the rocks.
After a very public fallout with President Trump, the "Morning Joe" co-host and the GOP seem to be on the precipice of a very messy breakup.
Scarborough appeared on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Tuesday night, and with Mika Brzezinski, his fiancée and "Morning Joe" co-host at his side, explained his disillusionment with the party he once represented in the House.
