Lena Dunham Joins ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7
“American Horror Story” Season 7 is adding a new “Girl” to its cast.
Additional details about Dunham’s role have not yet been revealed. The title of “Ahs” Season 7, which Murphy previously revealed will be inspired by the 2016 presidential election, will be announced on Thursday.
Previously announced cast members include “Ahs” veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, as well as franchise newcomers Billie Lourd (who worked with Murphy on “Scream Queens”) and “Billy on the Street’s” Billy Eichner. Beyond that, however, Murphy and FX have unsurprisingly revealed little about the upcoming season, with Murphy most recently dropping a clue in the form of a nightmarish bee-filled photo on his Instagram.

The Top Five Stuntmen and Women in Hollywood Right Now
The stunt doubles in a Hollywood film are often some of the toughest and most fit people in the world. To make the movie look realistic and make it appear as though the hero, the villain, or the character in the scene at that given moment is just a little more impressive they put their bodies on the line to insure that the scene is as perfect as it can be. Most times they are paired with actors and actresses that they can realistically pass for, but sometimes stunt doubles are actors as well and can contribute to the overall

‘Leatherface,’ the Surprise ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Prequel, Looks Gruesome as Hell
Even more than sequels, prequels have a tendency to fall flat with audiences. Although people are pre-wired to want more of anything they like – a character, a story, a concept – most movies simply are built to support a protracted look at their own internal mythology. Add to that the tendency of talented creators– the hard-working men and women whose dedication made the original so worthwhile in the first place – to move on to bigger and better things, and it’s no wonder they invariably fail to connect with audiences. It’s nothing short of a miracle that the Child’s

21st Century Fox Must Wait for U.K. Decision on Bid for Sky
The British government said that it would not make a decision on 21 Century Fox’s takeover bid for Sky before Parliament breaks for summer Thursday but added that a decision could be announced “within weeks.”
Culture secretary Karen Bradley said she could reach a decision during Parliament’s summer recess and, having not received any new information or concessions from the parties involved, remains “minded to” refer elements of the deal concerning media plurality to British competition authorities, and to waive the element about whether the Murdochs are “fit and proper” owners of a merged group.
“There was nothing in their representations that, at this stage, has led me to change my mind about the appropriateness of referral,” Bradley told Parliament. “Unless new evidence from other representations changes my mind in coming weeks, the bid will therefore be referred for a Phase 2 review on at least one ground: media plurality.”
