On the 94.9 Morning Mix, Ross recalled inappropriate advances from a big name producer and how Fisher made clear she had a zero-tolerance policy for that kind of behavior.

Does anyone ever pause to consider how Melania Trump is feeling these days? Saturday Night Live sure does. In the weekly sketch comedy series’ latest First Lady bit, guest host Kumail Nanjiani swoops in as a patient, empathetic call center operator in Pakistan.  When Melania chases away the sadness with mail-ordered Gucci handbags, Nanjiani’s nameless operator to help her with delivery issues… and life issues as well. It’s weirdly touching and heartfelt, in SNL‘s typically absurd way. Read more: http://mashable.com/2017/10/15/kumail-nanjiani-snl-melania-trump-sketch/

Ryan Gosling's "I'm in another masterpiece" look.Image: warner bros. There’s something uncanny about the way Warner Bros. is handling critics and press for Blade Runner: 2049. I’ve seen this weirdness before — and reading the tea leaves, I’d say we may very well have a modern classic on our hands here. But there are also reasons to believe the sequel to the sci-fi touchstone is a replicant of the 1982 original: A cult hit that’s a huge with fanboys and film geeks, but severely bores moviegoers and flops at the box office.

Harvey Weinstein.Image: Getty Images One of the counter-arguments in the whole Harvey Weinstein saga that keeps seeping through social media as more celebrities speak up against the disgraced Hollywood producer is: why didn’t these women come forward years ago?

'I won't tell if you won't.'Image: HBO Who can be trusted on a Game of Thrones set? No one. The answer is no one. Not the cast, not the crew, and certainly not the locals. And so as production of the final season approaches, let it be known that Game of Thrones will shoot many endings, maybe three, maybe five, probably more — upholding a Hollywood tradition of spoiler-proofing a TV narrative outcome with too much riding on it not to.

Finally!Image: Starz Spoiler warning: This recap contains plot details for Outlander Season 3, episode 1, titled “The Battle Joined.” Try as Jamie Fraser might, he just can’t seem to die.  He enters the Battle of Culloden devastated by the reality of having to say goodbye to his wife and unborn child, but also assured of their safety, having sent them (and the rest of his Lallybroch men) out of harm’s way before the battle begins.  That leaves his way clear to die a heroic (if unnecessary) death among his countrymen, knowing the defeat that awaits them thanks to Charles Stuart’s […]

Stephen King’s It has audiences sufficiently creeped out just from the trailers, and the film’s killer box office performance proves we love to be scared. When Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) showed up to an opening weekend show at Alamo Drafthouse, he filmed a little PSA about talking and texting during movies; don’t do it, or you’ll float too.
