Stephen Colbert has ridden anti-Trump sentiment to the top of the late-night pack. And in just a few weeks, he’ll expand his empire of presidential mockery to Showtime.
On Monday, the premium cable network announced that “Our Cartoon President,” an animated parody series inspired by a popular running bit on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” will debut on Feb. 11.
Executive produced by Colbert and “Late Show” showrunner Chris Licht, “Our Cartoon President” will “follow the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members” and offer an “all-access look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States,” according to Showtime.
In Saturday tweets that have since been removed, the “Charmed” alum wrote: “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem.
Truthfully, I'm just more experienced. I can get to places — and I'm talking in actor-speak now — but I can get to where I need to get faster now. I can understand when it's off, and I know it quicker; I know the signals and I'm better at redirecting it. But my approach is still the same. I've always liked to mix it up a bit.
I don't know who you think I am, but I audition for every part I get, almost across the board. If it's a part in a Steve McQueen movie with Michael Fassbender in it and Brad Pitt's producing it — odds are I'm not the only girl in town who wants that part, which means I'm going to have to fight like a lady haggling over a shoe at a Barneys sale. I'm going to have to be ready to put some elbows in some eyes.

As a person of color, with every role I play, I carry a certain amount of responsibility to my community. There's no denying the fact that, whether you want to be or not, you're forced into being a role model because there are so few to look to. Today, there's a real sense of pride that runs through the community when one of our own makes it.
Months before Disney moved to purchase much of Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox media company, it made a foray into bringing a Fox product to life.
In May, Disney opened Pandora — the World of Avatar in Animal Kingdom at the Orlando, Fla., resort of Walt Disney World.
The theme park is built in the universe of “Avatar,” James Cameron’s blockbuster film (and soon-to-be film series), and aims to immerse visitors in the fictional world of Pandora, with its overriding themes of conservation and exploration.
After director Peter Jackson publicized his suspicion that actresses Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino were blacklisted by Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced producer has denied the “Lord of the Rings” filmmaker’s accusations.
According to Jackson, the actresses had been chosen to star in his “Lord of the Rings” franchise when it was still under the umbrella of Weinstein’s Miramax studio, but contended that Weinstein intervened in the late 1990s.
“I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs,” Jackson told New Zealand’s Stuff on Thursday.
