Everyone is usually talking about the Marvel movies and the television, about Avengers: Age of Ultron or “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” but really those aren’t your only options. The next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is taking place somewhere else, Netflix, starting with “Daredevil” on April 10th. Meet me after the jump for the awesome trailer!
While “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is on hiatus, we’re getting “Agent Carter,” a flashback-prequel companion series that will be telling some of the stories that fill in background and hopefully secrets going on in the background this season. A lot of folks are excited about this series, especially people who aren’t watching “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” so hopefully this will refuel the viewership. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the pilot episode of “Agent Carter.”
Atlantic City was the place to go for fun on the beach and for its famous boardwalk, but this strip of beach has a rich history that goes way beyond the Miss America Pageants and its famous diving horse. When a good friend and fellow writer Uriah Young asked if I would be interested in interviewing an actor who would be in the fifth and final season of HBO’s hit series “Boardwalk Empire,” which is loosely based the book written by Nelson Johnson, my reply was, “Holy salt water taffy!” I would love to introduce the talented actor, Stephen Hill, to our followers of Biff Bam Pop!.

Kathy Bates will be bringing back her inner Annie Wilkes on American Horror Story Season 3 according to TVLine. Ryan Murphy has confirmed that Bates has signed on for the upcoming third season of the hit FX drama. Murphy teased fans at PaleyFest on Wednesday night, saying that Bates’ character is five times worse than her Misery character which is why she liked it. “When I pitched this to Kathy, her mouth was drop-jawed because what I was pitching actually happened,” Murphy continued. “It’s a true event. You’ll see.” We have American Horror Story vet Jessica Lange to thank for the inclusion of Bates in Season 3. “Jessica told me in Season 1 that Kathy was a huge fan of the show, so I just put that in the back of my mind,” Murphy explained. “When we were crafting this season, I found this character — a true-life character — so I called Kathy and said, ‘I don’t know if you want to do TV again, but I’ve got this character…’ She said, ‘I love you and I love the show. Lemme think for two weeks’ — and then she called me in an hour and said, ‘I love it! I’ll do it!’ It was great.”
Any ideas who Kathy’s real life Horror Story character could be? Madame LaLaurie anyone?
