Steve Buscemi In, Owen Wilson Out as TBS' Daniel Radcliffe-Led Comedy Miracle Workers Recasts Co-Lead
It seems God had a different plan for Miracle Workers.
TVLine has learned that TBS’ forthcoming heaven-set anthology comedy — starring Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe as a dutiful angel — has recast the role of the Lord Almighty, with Boardwalk Empire‘s Steve Buscemi stepping in for Owen Wilson.

Is This How Spider-Man Homecoming Should Have Ended?
Don’t ever assume that things are going to go the way that makes sense in a superhero movie. That’s like Superhero 101 folks! If you think it’s going to go one way the chances are good that it will go another way just out of spite or because you were hoping that it would make sense. Nothing ever makes complete sense in a superhero movie, not even if it should and has no business being otherwise. Spiderman: Homecoming could have and should have ended in so many other different ways that it bears looking at them all. So here we

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 8 Review: AMC Blockbuster Gets Its Groove Back For 100th Episode
To paraphrase Independence Day‘s President Thomas Whitmore and Dylan Thomas, the October 22-debuting eighth season and 100th episode of The Walking Dead makes it very clear that AMC's zombie apocalypse blockbuster has no intention of going quietly into the collapse-of-civilization night. Coming off the near-record-high ratings and much-hyped double-death brutality of the October 23, 2016 Season 7 opener, it was almost inevitable that Twd‘s previous season would come… »

‘Mindhunter’: The Lack of On-Screen Violence Makes the Serial Killer Drama Even More Unsettling
Season 1 of Netflix’s “Mindhunter” begins and ends with an confounding pair of bookends: The series’ opening sequence closes with a hostage-taker shooting himself in the head, while the ending view we get of Agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) shows him in a cold sweat on the floor of a prison hospital. Among the many questions of human behavior the show addresses in its opening batch of episodes, maybe the biggest is how one man can be so calm in the wake of watching a horrific suicide and be so affected by a single hug.
The answer might lie in the season-long effort to reframe the way audiences think about violence on a crime show. Apart from that grisly opening, we don’t actually see any on-screen killings, only descriptions filtered through a photograph or someone’s firsthand account. As Ford, Bill Tanch (Holt McCallany), and Wendy Carr (Anna Torv »
