Anthony Bourdain Remembered at Final "Parts Unknown" Screening

Anthony Bourdain Remembered at Final
The last voiceover Anthony Bourdain did for "Parts Unknown" was a fitting one.

As a packed, emotional house discovered at the Tribeca screening of the show’s upcoming Kenya episode — the twelfth and final season premiere featuring "United Shades of America" host W. Kamau Bell — Bourdain wanted to emphasize a point that has sometimes gotten lost in his work. “I do my best,” he said of his exploratory travel around the world. “I look, I listen. But in the end, I know it’s my story. Not Kamau’s, not Kenya’s. Those stories have yet to be heard.”

The coda, which airs after the credits on the episode, is one that not even his producers quite understood when Bourdain wrote it. “We didn’t have any idea what he was talking about,” said director Morgan Fallon, with a small laugh. But after Bourdain died, they revisited the tape and “it was almost uncanny.” (This episode marks the last time that Bourdain’s narration will be featured on the show.)

"Horror Story" Fave Leslie Grossman Teases Future "Apocalypse" Twists

The world of "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" may seem like a bleak nightmare, but for Leslie Grossman, it’s a dream come true. "Ryan [Murphy] has a lot of fun writing for Coco — his fingerprints are all over that character," she tells TVLine. "I know she’s a strong flavor, but stick with her, because it gets interesting. She seems to be one thing, but you never know what she’ll turn into."

If it sounds like Grossman is being intentionally vague, it’s because she is. "I cannot say anything, only Ryan can do that at this point," she explains,

"The Walking Dead's" Scott Gimple Calls Rick and Michonne's Final Season as a Couple "Remarkable"

Though it’s "Grey’s Anatomy" that’s officially heading into a Season of Love, that doesn’t mean that "The Walking Dead" can’t get a little romantic, too. So before Andrew Lincoln takes his leave during Season 9, the AMC drama is going to seize the opportunity to play up Rick’s relationship with Michonne.

“[Their connection] is deeper now,” previews Scott Gimple, chief content officer for all things Dead. Battling Negan and the Saviors, “they went through a remarkably intense thing together. She was there for him in so many different ways, and the things she ultimately led him to do were so important."

Robert Englund Will Bring Freddy Krueger Back to Life for "The Goldbergs"

Robert Englund Will Bring Freddy Krueger Back to Life for
For the first time in 15 years, veteran horror actor Robert Englund will don the sweater and claws of Freddy Krueger. Englund will reprise the role for a Halloween episode of ABC sitcom "The Goldbergs".

No, you're not dreaming. Old Freddy has come a long way since the extra crispy child-murderer first popped up in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984. Englund reprised the role over seven more movies, finally hanging up the claws for good — or so he said — after 2003's monster-mashup Freddy vs. Jason.

'Galveston' Trailer: Ben Foster and Elle Fanning Team Up for Drama Based on "True Detective" Creator’s Novel

'Galveston' Trailer: Ben Foster and Elle Fanning Team Up for Drama Based on
Though best known for her roles in films like Inglourious Basterds and Beginners, Mélanie Laurent has proven to be as impressive behind the camera as she is in front of it. Her fourth narrative feature is a crime thriller based on "True Detective" creator Nic Pizzolatto’s novel of the same name starring Elle Fanning, Ben Foster, and Lili Reinhart, which is to say there’s a lot of talent involved in this story of a hitman who returns to his hometown of (you guessed it) Galveston, Texas after a heist gone wrong.

After premiering at South by Southwest earlier this year, Galveston is currently at the Los Angeles Film Festival. It arrives in theaters and on VOD on October 19.

Five DC Superheroes Who are Incredible Liars

In the old days, a superhero that lied in anyway was often thought of to be more of a rogue, an ant-hero that was seen as just a little less of a reliable and stable character. These days however superheroes are possessed of a much different set of morals than ever before, as they are more inclined to bend the same rules they swear to uphold. From hidden identities to the acts they commit in the name of what they consider to be just and everything in between, many heroes that have either been born into the modern era or

‘Maniac’ Season 2: Cary Fukunaga Would be ‘Very Happy’ If Series Continued, but He’s Not Interested in Directing It

Netflix debuted its highly anticipated new series “Maniac” on September 21, and any viewer who binged all 10 episodes is surely thinking about what a second season would look like and asking whether or not the streaming giant will move forward with new episodes. Cary Fukunaga, who directed every installment of “Maniac,” tells Variety he’d be interested in seeing the series continue, although he’s not going to direct any new episodes.

“For me, I like to do one and move onto something else,” Fukunaga said. “I’d be very happy if another season were to happen, but I think they were just thinking about this as a limited season, and if there’s an appetite for another one then I think [show creator] Patrick [Somerville] would be happy to take it up and do it again. But not with me.”

Asia Argento Gives First Interview About Anthony Bourdain’s Death, Says His Loss Has Left ‘A Hole That Cannot Be Filled’
Asia Argento discussed the death of her boyfriend Anthony Bourdain during an appearance on “DailyMail TV.” The sit-down marked Argento’s first on-camera interview talking about Bourdain’s passing, and the actress and activist appeared visibly shaken while discussing the initial anger she felt over losing the famous chef and television host. Bourdain took his own life while in his hotel room in France on June 8.

“The anger kept me alive because otherwise this desperation has no end, there’s no end,” Argento said about her immediate response to Bourdain’s death. “I was angry, yes, for [him] abandoning me, my kids, but now it’s been replaced, just by this loss, this hole, that cannot be filled by anything.”

Argento last spoke publicly about Bourdain’s death in a note she shared on social media several hours after his passing had been confirmed. The two had been dating for two

CNN Needs Pro-Trump Voices, but Has a Hard Time Keeping Them on TV

CNN’s shows regularly feature people who like to defend the administration of President Donald Trump. Keeping their seats filled is becoming a tougher task.

Jason Miller had become a steady presence on CNN, appearing on programs like “Erin Burnett OutFront” to defend White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, among other Trump officials. But Miller, a former Trump campaign aide, left his role as a CNN political analyst this weekend after allegations about his off-camera behavior surfaced, in the process becoming the latest pro-Trumper to exit the network after gaining national recognition for his appearances.

10 Humongous Plot Holes in the Star Wars Franchise

The success of the Star Wars movies resulted in wave after wave of Star Wars books, comics, games, and other media properties, which built and built into the Expanded Universe. However, this process resulted in a huge mess of a setting, both because no creator could keep track of the entire setting and because not all creators shared the same vision, meaning that more and more plot holes opened up as more and more media properties. Although Disney’s buy-out of Lucasfilm in 2012 meant that the previous Expanded Universe was relegated to Legends canon, there are still plot holes in

Young and the Restless fans are not surprised that this new week will bring much of the same drama it brought before. We know that last week was quite interesting, and we want to share a bit of it really quickly before it all goes south. It was rather exciting to see that Abby’s new boyfriend’s sister embraced her so much. She was welcomed by Lola with open arms, and that was certainly not something that we all saw coming. We also saw that Lola made an impression on Kyle, too, and that does not make Summer happy. Summer, on
