‘Orphan Black’ Cast and Crew Share 14 Secrets of the Sestrahood — PaleyFest 2017
The Clone Club has gone Hollywood. (Okay, maybe only Crystal did.)
The cast and creators of “Orphan Black” hit PaleyFest on Thursday night at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre for its first ever panel to look back on the past four seasons and hint at the fifth and final season. The night kicked off with more than just a hint though. The Paley audience was given an exclusive early screening of the Season 5 premiere.
It was the best 44 minutes of Helena scarfing down food that we’ve ever seen. We’re kidding, of course, but we’d totally watch that. In the interests of not spoiling the fifth season, we’ll just say that the premiere picks up where Season 4 left off. When last we left the sestras, Rachel (Tatiana Maslany) was »

Melissa McCarthy Explains How ‘SNL’ Offered Her That Game-Changing Sean Spicer Role
The Emmy-winning actress, however, must have been born to play the role. A friend at “Saturday Night Live” thought she looked enough like the White House press secretary to offer her the gig. In an interview on “Ellen,” McCarthy detailed how that phone call went down.
She also reluctantly acknowledged that she resembled Spicer and had this curious observation: “I look so much like my dad that I feel like my dad and Sean Spicer had a baby, and it’s me, which makes it even stranger.”
Getting prosthetics only completed the process. “You mess with your ears and it really changes the shape of your head,” she said. “I got into it because I was like, ‘Can I have eye bags? »

New Fate of the Furious Clip Features Vin Diesel Driving a Burning Car
It’s not that I think Fate of the Furious is going unrecognized right now but I think it’s time to realize that this movie is coming out April 14th and it’s not getting talked about nearly as much as all the upcoming comic book based movies. When all is said and done, Fate of the Furious could very well eclipse them all. Have you guys even seen the trailer yet? The movie looks incredible. The cast is beyond good and the movie made sure to have a long screen time (over 3hrs) so that we didn’t just pass everyone by.
