Before serving as Parton’s manager for nearly five   decades, Warden had his own successful music career. Both Parton and Warden left the show in 1974, with him stepping into the role of her full-time manager. A huge piece of my life is gone. Rest in peace Don and know for sure that I will always love you. Joining the show in 1967 was Parton, then an unknown singer. “He was like a father, a brother, a partner, and one of my best friends. That same year, the duo shared the stage for the last time as they honored their recently departed boss and friend Wagoner with a special concert at Dollywood. After a regular run appearing on ABC’s Ozark Jubilee, Warden and Wagoner launched the syndicated series The Porter Wagoner Show in 1960. I feel like a piece of my heart is missing today. Don Warden, Dolly Parton’s long-time manager, died Saturday   at the age of 87, the singer announced Monday in a touching tribute on her website. “I’ve known and loved Don Warden since I joined The Porter Wagoner Show in 1967,” wrote Parton. Warden met future country music legend Porter Wagoner, and the two joined with Speedy Haworth to form the Porter Wagoner Trio. While he is best known for helping guide Parton throughout her historic solo career, Warden’s own musical talents were honored in 2008 when he was inducted into the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame. Certainly a huge piece of my life is gone. Parton and Wagoner, with Warden leading The Wagonmasters, forged a memorable   partnership.

5 sunny shows to binge in a blizzard

Taking the format of a procedural and infusing each episode with sumptuous love stories in lieu of half-boiled murder plots, the series became a fixture of late-’70s/early-’80s TV culture, and the show plays as a veritable yearbook of familiar TV faces (look for Teri Hatcher as one of the Love Boat Mermaids, Amy). Give in to your craving and binge your way through Brenda’s affair with Dylan, Donna and David’s not-so-perfect union, and good boy Brandon’s exploits.

Ever since delightful newcomer Gina Rodriguez clinched the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy (beating out the likes of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Lena Dunham) in 2015, this telenovela-style show has grown steadily in popularity, and not only for the obvious reasons. Think of it as the coziest way to warm up indoors. Sure, the ups and downs are soapy-satisfying, but the show’s consistent nod to Latin-American heritage is a more than welcome note as well. In honor of the imminent   weather, we’re going a decidedly different route, perusing the best and most binge-worthy shows that take place in   non-snowy places. Clocking in at only two seasons, this is a low-investment, high-reward binge.

Jake Tapper slams White House defense of Trump’s wiretapping allegations

RELATED: Celebrities Wearing Orange For Gun Safety: See Photos
“Not one credible, informed source that we could find in Washington has said that the president’s accusation is true, and I’m including   Vice President Pence in that group,” said Tapper. It’s been nine days since President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of tapping Trump Tower phones during the election, and if there’s one person who is fed up with the lack of evidence provided to support the accusation, it’s CNN’s Jake Tapper. — Donald J. Nothing found. And we as a nation have had to live in this farce for the past nine days.”
Tapper proceeded to   accuse administration spokespeople of “rejiggering the facts of the tweets to make this wild and unfounded claim by   the president seem to live in the somewhere in the vicinity of the neighborhood possible.” Then, the broadcast cut to a clip of today’s White House   press briefing where press secretary Sean Spicer said that Trump used the word “wiretapping” to broadly mean all surveillance activities.

Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? On Monday, Tapper opened   The Lead by unloading on the Trump administration for forcing the nation “to live in this farce for the last nine days.” As reported by   Time,   the House Intelligence Committee gave the Department of Justice until Monday to provide evidence supporting Trump’s claims; in the meantime, Trump’s claims have been called false by the director of the FBI and the former director of national intelligence. “To break out White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Trump-to-English dictionary: By Obama, Trump meant the Trump administration; by wiretap, he meant any kind of surveillance; and by surveillance of Trump’s phones at Trump Tower, he meant, apparently, surveillance of anyone who may have had any conversation with anyone who was part of the 2016 election,” said Tapper. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Terrible! — Donald J. “To say that members of the House Intelligence Committee are expecting reams of paper to prove this charge coming their way today, well that would be a disservice to the members of that select committee. Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. A NEW LOW! “Sometimes revisionism is so blatant, it’s not revisionism, it’s just a complete rewrite.”
He ended the segment by broadly addressing the administration’s attempts to defend many of Trump’s unfounded claims, including about voter fraud and crime rates: “The White House is now spending its energy and your tax dollars trying to change demonstrably false assertions into perfectly understandable beliefs tangentially related to the original lie,” he said. — Donald J. “While doing so, they’re squandering their own credibility, and they’re wasting time defending the indefensible, instead of devoting time to, say, improving your lives.”

“Barry was so busy trying to save Iris he didn’t realize it was Wally he should have been protecting,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “He’s willing to make the ultimate sacrifice when he enters the Speed Force,” Gustin says. “That’s going to lead Barry to risk everything to go into the Speed Force to get him back, but someone always has to be trapped in the Speed Force prison. “They use different characters that will get under Barry’s skin in a different way, but also they’re just not quite as understanding anymore because of how many decisions Barry has made that have affected time and affected the timeline. He thinks it’s what he deserves, to spend the rest of eternity in the Speed Force.”

While “Into the Speed Force” serves as a semi-sequel to last season’s Kevin Smith-directed episode “The Runaway Dinosaur,” this trip into the Speed Force will be very different. Barry will be facing those he feels like he’s failed, including Ronnie (Robbie Amell) and Eddie (Rick Cosnett). The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. “The Speed Force takes a little bit more of an aggressive approach with Barry just because of choices that have been made since the end of season 2 leading up to where we’re at now,” Gustin says. Desperate to save Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) life after he was trapped in the Speed Force by Savitar, Barry (Grant Gustin) returns to what’s basically an extra-dimensional energy that gives speedsters their powers with every intention of taking Kid Flash’s place. Barry Allen will head into the Speed Force during Tuesday’s episode of The Flash — but will he return?

How one ‘Hamilton’ fan made Taran Killam cry

“The most meaningful audience experience I’ve had happened when I was watching the first or second row from on stage, and there was this family with a daughter who was probably 6 or 7. I love it.”
Killam says that while every performance he’s done feels a little different, there was one show that was particularly special. I started crying. She was clearly affected. The little girl drew a picture of me and said, ‘I loved coming to the show.’” Killam stops talking briefly, eyes suddenly quite wet, before laughing again. “I literally broke down to this family — I told them they were such wonderful audience members and how it meant so much to me. Her mother was holding her, her dad was looking at her, and I was just so touched. “Oh, I can’t even handle it.”

“We’re completely ignoring what’s going on the other side of the wall,” says Russell, who scripts the comic series and comes up with layouts for Hampton to illustrate. Although the comic creators will be adapting the book alongside the Starz show, Russell and Hampton made a point from the beginning not to let the TV adaptation influence their own take. The book is filled with fantasy moments and interludes with plenty of potential for interesting visuals. “That first issue takes place in a prison, then in an airport, and then on an airplane. They were working on the animated version at the same time. These are not most people’s ideas of the most scintillating scenes to draw and paint,” Hampton tells EW. Russell and Hampton needed to find a way to spice up the visuals. While Fabry’s cover for issue 1 features the buffalo man who haunts Shadow’s dreams throughout the story, Mack’s is an impressionistic character study of Shadow. Check out some character sketches below. But I wanted to establish the notion that this book was going to have a lot of fantasy, even within sequences that take place in, say, a prison. I wanted that in there because the first issue does what it does, you get an inkling that something odd is happening, but basically it’s a setup. Those are the moments of fantasy within the first issue that I really enjoyed. That first four-pager lets you know that things are going to get seriously weird.”

Next month sees the launch of Starz’s much-anticipated TV adaptation of   American Gods, Gaiman’s best-selling book about old gods of mythology struggling to adapt to a new world ruled by gods of media and modernity.

Common to star in revenge actioner ‘Quick Draw’

Most recently, he appeared opposite Keanu Reeves in the high-profile sequel John Wick: Chapter 2, which has made $87.4 million domestically to date. Quick Draw   reportedly begins shooting this summer. “The narrative [Goldberg] creates is incredibly rich and while intense action defines this movie,” di Bonaventura told THR. Content’s Tom Butterfield and Greenlit Creative’s David Greenblatt will produce as well. Common’s next Hollywood   project is locked and loaded. EW has confirmed the Oscar-winning rapper and actor will   star in the upcoming revenge thriller Quick Draw. Plot   details are slim at the moment, though Canadian writer-director Harris Goldberg told   The Hollywood Reporter   the film will feature “hyper intense shoot-outs, choreographed car chases, and lightning fast hand-to-hand combat” and action that “plays out across the mean streets of Los Angeles.”
Alongside   Content Media, Transformers franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is also working on the film, which marks a notable shift in Goldberg’s creative output, as he’s   primarily written comedic screenplays (the Deuce Bigalow series, Without a Paddle) in the past. “The story is also very much character driven.”

After winning his first Academy Award in 2015 for co-penning   the original track “Glory” for Ava DuVernay’s Selma,   Common upped his profile on the big screen, landing roles in the crime thriller   Run All Night   and the tentpole superhero flick Suicide Squad. Show Full Article

‘My Favorite Thing Is Monsters’ by Emil Ferris: EW Review

But at no point in the course of reading it does it feel long — a tribute to not only Ferris’s ability to suck readers into the story (at times, within another story), but also to her effortless ability to pace the story she’s telling. Meanwhile, Karen’s adventures in the present paint a picture of all the political, racial, and sexual elements at play in 1960s Chicago. The first volume of the story clocks in at 386 pages. What’s even more remarkable, perhaps, is that it’s only the   first half of her two-part tale. But where the graphic novel   really comes alive is in Ferris’s sketches of famous works of art, in which she (drawing as Karen) reinterprets them to represent different aspects of the story, making it both an extension of the piece, but also something new entirely. What could have been the central question in   any other piece of storytelling just becomes one of the many threads Emil Ferris deftly weaves together to create her fully realized debut graphic novel,   My Favorite Thing Is Monsters. The result is a piece of work that is as gripping as it is   emotional — and we’re grateful that the next volume is only months away. At the center of the story is young detective, Karen Reyes, a ten-year-old girl acting on her love of monsters in an effort to procure a “bite” that will transform both her cancer-stricken   mother and beloved older brother Deeze into monsters so they can live forever. Who killed Anka Silverberg? Show Full Article Much of the art is done in Bic-pen cross-hatching, simulating   what could be Karen’s personal notebook, filled with her own drawings and recreations of horror magazine covers. Artistically, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters eschews what could be considered “traditional” graphic novel storytelling, trading in sequential panels for more unorthodox visual layouts. In this way, Ferris uses Karen’s (and her own) love of the macabre as a lens through which to view both history and current events. Only, as she learns on her quests for answers (and supernatural aid), there are different kinds of monsters in the world — the “good” kind (Karen and her friends and family) and the “bad,” people who seek to disseminate fear and use it to control others. As   the   young girl — or the young monster, as she sees herself —   attempts to solve the mystery of Anya’s death, readers are transported to Nazi Germany, where a second coming-of-age tale unfolds.

“You’ll have to let me know how it was!”

In the film, Embry’s character is a metalhead, and Appleby says the actor encouraged her to check out the genre. In this film from Tasmanian director Sean Byrne (The Loved Ones), Appleby and Ethan Embry play a couple who, together with their daughter (Kiara Glasco), move into a remote house with a dark past and find themselves targeted by Pruitt Taylor Vince’s unhinged local. “I’m   scared to see it!” she admits. Back in the late ’80s, the then-preteen   appeared in a film called Curse II: The Bite. “I’m shooting UnREAL. I get in the car and try to listen to some nice peaceful, relaxing music to counterpoint the dark world I have to get involved in as soon as I hit set.”
The Devil’s Candy isn’t Appleby’s first foray into horror. “I don’t want to see it without an audience, because I know it’s the kind of movie that really deserves that.” Also?  

Show Full Article “No!” she says. “Ethan really got into it, and it felt like it really became part of the experience of making the movie.”   So, is Appleby now cranking up the Metallica on the drive to work? “I hadn’t listened to that much heavy metal before the movie,” she explains. “I feel like it was about a snake that came out of somebody’s arm that was biting people,” she replies, uncertainly. But one person who hasn’t seen it yet is cast member Shiri Appleby. The world of UnREAL is crazy enough. “I’ve never worked with somebody who had such a clear vision,” says Appleby of Byrne. Horror film The Devil’s Candy   (out March 17) has generated terrific buzz since it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015. “There were a lot of special effects and smoke.” You know we are one 100 percent going to track the film down, right? “Okay,” she laughs. What was that about? I felt like he was really driven. The Devil’s Candy will be available in select theaters, on VOD, and via digital platforms on March 17   from IFC Midnight. “He knew completely the story he wanted to be telling.
