Here's the Scoop...

Four BelowDid you hear about this... Emilia Clarke survived two brain aneurysms!

Lena Headey is showing her support for Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke.

The 45-year-old actress voiced her admiration for Clarke in an Instagram post Thursday after the 32-year-old star went public about surviving two brain aneurysms.

Headey and Clarke have co-starred as Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones for seven seasons. The HBO series will return for an eighth and final season in April.

"It took me a while to know this woman (there are 64000 of us after all) Not until she spoke to me about her experience did I fully realize the warrior she truly is (MOD for real x209840000)," Headey wrote, referencing Daenerys' nickname Mother of Dragons.

"She does really great things for causes that deserve it. She's kind and determined and funny and aware. #Thursday's MVP ... Here's to @emilia_clarke," she said.

Clarke shared her story in an essay for The New Yorker published Wednesday. She recalled having a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a life-threatening type of stroke, in February 2011, two months before Game of Thrones debuted.

"If I was to live and avoid terrible deficits, I would have to have urgent surgery," the actress wrote. "For the next three hours, surgeons went about repairing my brain. This would not be my last surgery, and it would not be the worst, I was twenty-four years old."

Clarke experienced aphasia, impaired language that affected her ability to communicate, after the procedure. She was devastated by the possibility of not being able to act and contemplated suicide in her "worst moments."

"In my worst moments, I wanted to pull the plug. I asked the medical staff to let me die. My job -- my entire dream of what my life would be -- centered on language, on communication. Without that, I was lost," the star explained.

While in the hospital, Clarke learned she had a smaller aneurysm on the other side of her brain. After completing Season 3, she required emergency surgery after a procedure to treat the aneurysm failed.

"The recovery was even more painful than it had been after the first surgery," the star recalled. "I spent a month in the hospital again and, at certain points, I lost all hope. I couldn't look anyone in the eye. There was terrible anxiety, panic attacks."

Clarke said she's "now at a hundred percent" after healing beyond her "most unreasonable hopes." She voiced her gratitude and said she's helped launch a charity, SameYou, to provide treatment to those recovering from brain injuries and stroke.

Be Well,
Steve

'Bill & Ted Face the Music' set for Aug. 21, 2020 release

Bill & Ted Face the Music, the long awaited sequel to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, is scheduled to open in theaters on Aug. 21, 2020.

Original franchise stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves will reprise their roles as the titular time-travelers. The first two films, which were released in 1989 and 1991, showed Bill and Ted as teen slackers charged with saving the world.

Appearing together in a release date announcement video Wednesday, Winter and Reeves thanked their fans for decades of support and urged everyone to "be excellent."

"Off we go," Winter tweeted, along with the clip.

In an interview with UPI in November, Winter said he was excited about reuniting with Reeves and returning to physical comedy after years of making documentaries.

Production is set to begin on Face the Music this summer in New Orleans.

Dean Parisot -- whose credits include Galaxy Quest and Red 2 -- is directing the comedy from a screenplay by returning franchise writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.

"Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends," a synopsis said.

Reeves told the crowd at New York Comic Con in 2017: "We're trying to get it all worked out so, hopefully, one day. Hopefully, before I'm 60."

Reeves is now 54 and Winter is 53.

'Deadwood' film to debut May 31 on HBO

'Deadwood' film to debut May 31 on HBOHBO has announced its Deadwood sequel movie is scheduled to premiere on the network on May 31.

"Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought," said a synopsis that accompanied Thursday's minute-long teaser on YouTube.

Deadwood: The Movie was announced in July.

The film follows a 19th century-set western drama series that wrapped in 2006 after three seasons.

It starred Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, Kim Dickens, John Hawkes, Robin Weigert, Dayton Callie, Paula Malcomson and Brad Dourif, most of whom returned for the sequel film and are shown in the preview.

"This town is a sanctuary," McShane's saloon owner Al Swearengen is heard saying in the clip as the camera moves through his South Dakota town. "Every man worth a name knows the value of being unreachable."

Swearengen is also seen speaking with Olyphant's Sheriff Seth Bullock in a tavern.

"You ever think, Bullock, of not going straight at a thing?" Swearengen asks.

"No," is Bullock's reply.

"Cynthia's done a lot of stuff in my opinion, [that's] on the down low and very sneaky and underhanded...I always come out looking like the bad guy. She's done a lot of f-ed up stuff and that's just for real."

'Parks and Recreation' cast, creator talk possible revival at reunion panel

The cast and creator of Parks and Recreation reunited for a special 10th anniversary panel at PaleyFest in Los Angeles where they discussed the possibility of returning for a revival.

The panel was attended by stars Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Jim O'Heir, Retta and Rob Lowe, along with creator Michael Schur, on Thursday. Patton Oswalt served as moderator.

"Everyone on this stage, and like 6 other people, would have to feel like there was a story that needed to be told," Schur said about bringing everyone back for a revival of the comedy series that ran for seven seasons on NBC from 2009 to 2015.

"I would never, ever, ever say never. I mean, the chance to do it again, should it arise, would be incredible, but I think we'd only do it if we all felt like there was some compelling reason to do it," he continued during the discussion.

The cast members also discussed what it was like to portray their characters and the experience they had on the show.

"I think it extended my life," Poehler said about portraying Leslie Knope. "Leslie was really, really good for my mental health."

David Letterman says he should have left 'Late Show' 10 years earlier

David Letterman said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday that he should have left the Late Show 10 years earlier.

Letterman exited CBS' Late Show in 2015 after a 33-year run. He was replaced by Stephen Colbert.

"I stayed on television way too long," the comedian said. "It turns out nobody had the guts to fire me."

"You want to make sure you have some energy to direct towards other things," he continued. "All I cared about was myself and then the show was gone. And so I had to realize, oh, I've been looking through the wrong end of the telescope. There is more to life than, so tell me about your pet beaver."

Letterman now works with Habitat for Humanity and hosts Netflix's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. He said that DeGeneres would be a guest on the show's upcoming second season.

Letterman also told DeGeneres a comedic story of how he thought he was going to jail after playing catch inside his office located on the 14th floor. A baseball he missed broke a window and fell towards a crowded New York street alongside broken glass.
