John Boyega, who shot to fame with his role as defector Storm Trooper Finn in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” minces no words when discussing Hollywood’s race problem.

“There are no black people on ‘Game of Thrones.’ You don’t see one black person in ‘Lord of the Rings,'” Boyega said in a recent interview with GQ. “I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen. Because you see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.”

Remote Controlled: Nicole Kidman on ‘Big Little Lies’ — ‘I Didn’t Realize How Disturbing It Was Going to Be’

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome to “Remote Controlled,” a podcast from Variety featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.

In today’s episode, Variety’s executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum talks with “Big Little Lies” star Nicole Kidman.

The project began because she and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom would ultimately serve as executive producers, weren’t finding enough compelling, complex roles to play. “This was born of Reese and I feeling frustrated that we weren’t being offered the roles that we wanted,” she says. “We were reading things and they just weren’t enough. So this was born out of not having an opportunity, and we got lucky. We were able to make it happen.”

Kidman says the first sense she got that the series was a success came from watching the episodes with her own husband. “When he started to say, ‘When does the next one get here?' »

BBC Says New ‘Doctor Who’ Actress Will Be Paid Same as Current Star

21 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first female Doctor will have to continue the fight to preserve hope and light in the universe, but there is one thing she won’t have to struggle for: pay parity with her male predecessor.

BBC director-general Tony Hall told the Evening Standard that new star Jodie Whittaker will receive pay parity with Peter Capaldi when she takes on the role starting with 2017’s Christmas special.

The news comes on the heels of the recent firestorm faced by the BBC after its top stars’ salaries were released and it was revealed that the highest-paid female celebrity, Claudia Winkleman, makes less than a quarter of the highest-paid male star, “Top Gear’s” Chris Evans, each year. In addition, only one-third of stars making over $194,000 (£150,000) per year are female.

According to a recent report from Cinemablend, The Flash season 4 crew has gone and rehired actress Britne Oldford to come back and reprise her role as villain Shawna "Peek-a-Boo" Baez (above)!

Barry aka The Flash was eventually able to put her madness to an end by taking out all the lights in the city which halted her teleportation abilities. From there, she was imprisoned within the power-muting pipeline with all the other villains. However, in episode 22 of that same season, it was revealed that Peek-a-Boo was set free after characters Leonard Snart and Lisa Snart attacked the truck that was hauling the meta-villains away from S.T.A.R. »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Ozark” Season 1. A spoiler-free review is available here.]

Now that’s how you make a thriller.

Anyone burned by the slow stroll to nowhere of recent Netflix dramas had to be pleased with the pins-and-needles tension — and shocking payoffs — of “Ozark,” Jason Bateman’s new original series for the streaming giant. From the first episode to the ending, Season 1 was filled with shocking twists and intense familial strife.

Below, we’ll break down why the near-constant darkness always felt grounded in reality, using big developments in the plot and key scenes throughout the series to illustrate how a horror story still felt relatable — and all the more terrifying for it.
