Here's the Scoop...

Sarah Jessica Parker is giving fans new hope for Sex and the City 3.

The 51-year-old actress, who played Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO series and in two movies, hinted a third film is still a possibility while appearing on CBS Sunday Morning.

"I will say that the idea, it rests in the butler's pantry. It's not on the table, but somebody is holding it fairly nearby."

First off, WHAT?! What is she talking about? What does "butler's pantry" mean? Are you kidding me?!

May I just say on behalf of people with good taste in entertainment, "NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Please NO! NO! No! NO! Make it stop!" Thank you.

Be Well,
Steve

Tim Allen on 'Toy Story' glory: 'I'm proud to be part of it'
Last Man Standing star and Home Improvement alum Tim Allen says he can't wait to reprise his vocal role of the animated space ranger Buzz Lightyear in a fourth Toy Story movie, which is scheduled for release in 2018.

"I'm so looking forward to it. The best thing out of it is that I've developed quite a good relationship with Hanks," Allen told UPI in a recent phone interview.

"He and I have very similar sensibilities about so many things. If nothing else about Toy Story, I get to be buddies with Tom like Woody and Buzz. And I'm always amazed at kids [and their reaction to Toy Story.] I grew up on Mickey Mouse and Walter Lantz and Woody Woodpecker and Mel Blanc doing all these voices and now I'm one of the voices of an icon," he said. "I'm proud to be part of it. I'm very possessive about it."

So, what can he reveal about the plot-line for his next cartoon adventure?

"They won't tell me! Just bits and pieces!" Allen insisted. "It's better that you ask Pixar. Or Tom doesn't seem to have any compunction; he'll say anything. All I know is it's a romance. That's all I know."


Nathan Fillion: 'Castle' finale wasn't as 'beautiful' as hoped
Castle star Nathan Fillion is weighing in on the show's much-criticized series finale.

The 45-year-old actor, who played Richard Castle on the ABC series, admitted in an interview with the New York Post that the show's abrupt ending wasn't the perfect conclusion he'd hoped for.

"It wasn't the beautiful send-off that I think maybe you could hope for, but it's the entertainment industry, it's a business, I get it," Fillion said.

"I don't take it personally when a show gets canceled -- I can't take it personally, all my shows get canceled. Look at my resume, it's a long list of canceled TV shows," he added.

ABC had announced in April that Stana Katic, who played Kate Beckett, wouldn't return for Season 9. Castle was canceled ahead of the Season 8 finale the next month, despite Fillion and other stars having signed on for another season.

"All things must end. It has been an honor working with the men and women of Castle. I am truly amazed at what we've done. Thank you all," the actor tweeted after the cancellation.

"Dear Every Director, It appears I have an opening in my schedule," he added. "Dear Fans, In whatever project I do next, loudly notice how unlike Castle and fresh and versatile I am. Thanks."

Fillion, who is also known for the series Two Guys and a Girl and Firefly, has since debuted as Rainer Shine on Modern Family. The actor will reprise the guest role in at least three more episodes.

AMC renews 'The Walking Dead' for Season 8
AMC says it has renewed its wildly popular, zombie-apocalypse drama The Walking Dead for an eighth season.

"Eeny, meeny, miny, more," Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, said in a statement. "What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us."

The cable network Sunday aired a 2-hour re-cap special in the run-up to next weekend's highly anticipated Season 7 premiere in which at least one longtime character is expected to be killed.

The program included fresh interviews with current cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs and Steven Yeun, as well as their past co-stars -- whose characters have died -- such as Laurie Holden, David Morrissey, Jeffrey DeMunn and Scott Wilson.

AMC is re-running all episodes of the six, previous seasons this week. The marathon started Sunday.

Which director received the BFI Fellowship at the London Film Festival?

Director Steve McQueen has received the British Film Institute's highest honor on the last day of the London Film Festival.

The 12 Years a Slave helmer was presented with the BFI Fellowship by his friend and frequent collaborator Michael Fassbender Saturday during a star-studded gala dinner.

"He's like a very light hippo -- an anomaly," actor said onstage while introducing McQueen The Guardian reported.

"There are only two things I really know," the filmmaker said. "One of them is that I'm black and the other one is that I'm a Londoner. Everything else I don't know. But I know I've had the possibility of exploring and of being reckless and of experimenting because I didn't pay to go to university.

"I had the freedom to experiment and it seems to me that is being slowly eradicated. It is our job in this room to keep these doors open for people who don't have all those chances," he continued.

McQueen attended the event with his producer wife Bianca Stigter. Film stars Alicia Vikander, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Anna Friel, Lily James, David Tennant, Kerry Fox, Matthew Macfadyen and Michael Sheen were also in attendance.

Notably, McQueen is the first black director or producer to receive the award.

"It's one of those things where you're just chuffed," the 47-year-old noted to the BBC. "It's a case of just continuing with the work but it's one of those things that give you a little spring in your step, for sure."

Other big winners from the London Film Festival include the award for Best Film for Certain Women directed by Kelly Reichardt and starring Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart, and director Julia Ducournau took home the Sutherland Award for Best New Feature for Raw.
