Here's the Scoop...

Logan was excellent! It's one of the best movies of the year...and I stand by that.

Here's the premise: Logan is old. Professor X is losing his mind. And a young mutant girl comes along that needs their help or do they need her help? Bloodshed, four letter words, great directing, acting and script-writing ensue!

This is the movie that shows the Logan/Wolverine character as he was meant to be seen. The action and violence are very visceral, and the themes and characters are so well written and acted that we get a deep and meaningful superhero movie that will be held in high regard to all superhero films from now until the end of time. I would say more, but I don't want to spoil it.

I can't recommend Logan enough, but be warned, it's brutally violent...NOT FOR KIDS! If you can, see it in the theater!

Be Well,
Steve

Jason Isaacs, Mary Wiseman to co-star in 'Star Trek: Discovery'
Jason Isaacs and Mary Wiseman have joined the cast of the upcoming CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery.

Isaacs will play Lorca, the ship's captain, and Wiseman will portray Tilly, a Starfleet Academy cadet in her final year of study.

"The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers," a press release said. "The series will premiere on the CBS Television Network with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access, the network's digital-subscription, video-on-demand and live-streaming service, and will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV."

The sci-fi drama will also feature Sonequa Martin-Green, James Frain, Anthony Rapp and Doug Jones.


Milo Ventimiglia says 'This is Us' finale will be 'rocky ride'
Milo Ventimiglia says fans can expect the This is Us finale to be a "rocky ride."

The 39-year-old actor teased an emotional Season 1 ending for his character, Jack, Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Chrissy Metz) in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter following Tuesday's penultimate episode.

"I hope everyone has recovered from William's passing is all I'm going to say," he said, referencing William's (Ron Cephas Jones) death in Episode 16. "Get ready. It's a rocky ride at the end."

Tuesday's episode saw Kate, Jack's only daughter, tell Toby (Chris Sullivan) she was responsible for her dad's death, which has yet to be explained. Ventimiglia confirmed the finale will also feature a "heartbreaking" scene with Jack and wife Rebecca.

"It was pretty painful," he said of filming. "[It took us to] some place that we'd never been with This is Us, and it was just one of those moments that you were grateful for the work and grateful for the words you get to say and the partner you get to be a scene with."

Ventimiglia previously hinted at a sad finale in a Build interview with The Huffington Post, saying that tissues are "probably mandatory." He assured fans, however, that he will remain a part of the show after Jack's death.

"Dan Fogelman, our creator, said to me that no matter what, even though Jack is dead in the present day, that I'm not going anywhere," the actor said.

"Even though when you do find out how and when and why Jack died, it doesn't mean that the character is gone or I'm gone, it's just you shift direction and tell a different story. He equates it to having a family album -- you open up to a random page and you just start telling a story based on that photo," he explained.

The This is Us Season 1 finale will air Tuesday, March 14 on NBC.

Jim Broadbent to play archmaester on 'Game of Thrones'
English actor Jim Broadbent says he will play an archmaester on Game of Thrones.

The 67-year-old star spilled details in an interview with Screen Crush about his upcoming role in the HBO show's seventh season.

"I'm a maester, an archmaester. I'm an old professor character," he said. "I did five episodes. I did sort of one major scene in each episode."

Broadbent said he shares his scenes with John Bradley, who portrays Samwell Tarly, fueling speculation he will play Maester Marwyn. Season 6 left off with Sam arriving at the Citadel in Oldtown, where Marwyn resides.

Game of Thrones is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R.R. Martin, with Marwyn appearing in the fourth novel, A Feast for Crows. Liam Cunningham, who portrays Ser Davos Seaworth, told the Independent in February that the series will return in July.

"I've been disappointing various people around the world because it was meant to come out in April. It's July now, I think," the 55-year-old Irish actor said.

"There's going to be a launch and something special happening this year for the premiere. The bad news is, there will only be seven episodes," he confirmed.

Broadbent is known for playing Harold Ziedler in Moulin Rouge! and Professor Slughorn in the Harry Potter movies. He will also star in Black 47 with Hugo Weaving and Paddington 2 with Hugh Grant.

??? Guess Who ???

Which former 'Harry Potter' star says he's often mistaken for Ed Sheeran?

Rupert Grint detailed how he is often mistaken for musician Ed Sheeran Monday during an appearance The Late Late Show with James Corden.

"It's kinda 50/50 now," the Harry Potter star said of being mistaken for the also red-haired Sheeran to host Corden and fellow guest stars Patrick Stewart and Dan Stevens.

"It's like if someone stops me, it could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me," he continued.

According to Grint, even celebrities believe he's Sheeran as he shared a story about an encounter he had with singer Leo Sayer.

"Leo Sayer, he came up to me and he said he loved my music," Grint said. "Of course, thinking I was Ed. I just, yeah, I play along."

Previously, Grint appeared in the music video for Sheeran's single "Lego House."
