Scott Speedman Joins Netflix’s ‘You’ For Season 3
Exclusive: Animal Kingdom alum Scott Speedman has been tapped for a major recurring role on the upcoming third season of the Netflix series You, headlined by Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti.

Speedman will play Matthew, a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father. He’s reserved, at times mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn, all of which masks a deep well of emotion underneath.

The actor is the latest major addition to You for next season, joining recently cast new series regulars Travis Van Winkle and Shalita Grant.

Developed by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, You is based on Caroline Kepnes’ bestselling books You and Hidden Bodies. In the second season, Joe Goldberg (Badgley) moves from New York to Los Angeles to escape his past, and starts over with a new identity. Fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder, the last thing he expects is to

‘Smokey and the Bandit’ Series in the Works
The classic 1977 action comedy “Smokey and the Bandit” is getting the TV treatment.

Ucp, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Seth MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door are teaming to develop a series based on the Burt Reynolds movie.

The series is being written by “Pineapple Express” director David Gordon Green and regular collaborator Brian Sides. MacFarlane and Green are both executive producing.

Smokey and the Bandit” is an epic adventure of family, small-town crime, unlikely heroes, legend and legacy. Inspired by the genre of 70s and 80s drive-in double-features, the series will “explore the crossroads where humble realities meet those larger-than-life, all in a blast of tailpipe exhaust.”

The original film was produced by Universal Pictures and starred Reynolds, who passed away just over two years ago, in the iconic role of Bo “Bandit” Darville. Bandit was payed to bootleg 400 cases of Coors beer across the country from Texarkana, Texas to Atlanta.

‘Falcon & Winter Soldier’ Writer Teases Characters From “The Earliest Marvel Movies” Returning For The Series
For a TV series that features two Marvel characters that have appeared in numerous films, there’s still a lot of mystery that surrounds “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” Will Anthony Mackie’s Falcon become the new Captain America? What’s up with USAgent? And how does Zemo figure into all of this? We honestly don’t know what’s going to happen, as Marvel sure does love its secrecy.

The Undoing: Nicole Kidman Addresses Big Little Lies Comparisons, Drops Fresh 'Tidbit' About Potential Season 3
The Undoing and Big Little Lies share a network (HBO), a writer (David E. Kelley), a star (Nicole Kidman) and a conceit (wealthy moms in crisis!). But that’s pretty much where the project’s similarities begin and end, maintain Kidman and her Undoing director Susanne Bier.

The fact that Bier has a “very different” visual style than Big Little Lies‘ respective Season 1 and 2 helmers, Jean-Marc Vallée and Andrea Arnold, allows The Undoing to stand on its own, Kidman tells TVLine, adding, “That’s the beauty of great filmmakers.”

Donald Trump Behaved in the Second Debate, Which Gave Joe Biden the Chance to Destroy Him
Whatever your opinion of Donald Trump, there’s no denying that he has a sixth sense not just for lowering the bar but for keeping it low, for taking previously unacceptable levels of presidential bad behavior and normalizing them, for turning rage, chaos, and lies into everyday reality. The latest example might be the way that at the second and final presidential debate, held between President Trump and his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., Trump largely abandoned the insult-comic-on-Adderall, I-interrupt-therefore-i-am kamikaze tactics that defined his performance during the first debate. And the

Final Biden-Trump Faceoff: Voters Get One Presidential Debate That Does What It’s Supposed to Do
The second and final presidential debate between President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday was a stark contrast to the duo’s disastrous first debate in September.

The primary reason for this was that there were significantly less interruptions throughout the roughly 90-minute Thursday evening event, which was aptly moderated by NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker. Each candidate was given ample time to answer questions and respond to accusations from his opponent. Welker supplied both candidates with tough questions on their records and didn’t hesitate to follow-up or repeat questions when Biden or Trump failed to provide sufficient answers. Thursday’s event actually resembled a typical presidential debate from prior election seasons.

That’s not necessarily high praise, but after the thoroughly embarrassing affair that was the first Biden-Trump bout several weeks ago, expectations for Thursday’s event were rock bottom. Indeed,

Joe Biden Accuses Trump of Using Russian ‘Plant’ in Final Debate
Democratic challenger Joe Biden accused President Trump of trafficking in Russian disinformation in the final debate on Thursday, and asked Americans to weigh each candidate’s character in deciding how to vote.

Trump brought up allegations involving Joe Biden’s son Hunter, referring to the “laptop from hell” cited in a New York Post story about the younger Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.

“What he’s accusing me of is a Russian plant,” Biden said. “What he’s saying is a bunch of garbage. Nobody believes it except him and his good friend Rudy Giuliani.”

Big Brother All-Stars Recap: Who Was Evicted Ahead of Finale Night?
Heading into Thursday’s eviction episode, the Big Brother house seemed to be fresh out of holiday spirit.

After getting nominated for the third week in a row — and failing to win the crucial, final Power of Veto — Christmas spent much of this week in tears as her fate was left in other players’ hands. And Christmas’ fellow houseguests didn’t have a whole lotta patience for her emotional spiral (or for her re-enactment of her middle-school talent show performance), making these quiet days in the Bb house even more uncomfortable.
