With Disney’s new streaming service launching just prior to the start of the holiday season, of course one of their initial offerings is a Christmas movie.

The ‘Conners’ Connections Go Back More Than A Generation

There haven’t been a lot of television shows that can claim the same kind of longevity as The Conners. Going back to its origins as Roseanne, most of the cast  first started working together back in the 1980s. Several of the cast members, like Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert, were just kids when they started out on the show. When we spoke to Goranson and her on-screen aunt, Laurie Metcalf, she told us the connection between the show’s cast members is something really special. (Click on the media bar below to hear Lecy Goranson & Laurie Metcalf)

The Conners airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.

Doing Comedic Stunts, John Cena Had Fun ‘Playing With Fire’

John Cena’s new film, Playing With Fire, is a little bit of a throwback — it’s a family comedy with a strong physical component. (Think of something like Home Alone, which mixed kids and slapstick humor to great effect.) Even though his character occasionally winds up being on the wrong end of that physical humor, Cena told us he’ll take those kinds of physical stunts over the ones he has to do in his action films.

Playing With Fire is playing now in theaters.

Dick Wolf Picked An ‘SVU’ Winner In Mariska Hargitay

When producer Dick Wolf announced a spin-off series from his wildly successful Law & Order back in the last millennium, he felt confident that he was getting a quality female lead in Mariska Hargitay, who was just coming off a recurring role on ER at the time. Twenty-one years later, his choice has been validated over and over and over again. Not only has Hargitay done a phenomenal job as Olivia Benson over the years, but Wolf likely couldn’t have picked an actress who would be more passionate and dedicated about the role, the show, and its mission. With the show still going strong, Wolf is amazed — and gratified — that Hargitay is just as excited about the show as the day it premiered. (Click on the media bar below to hear Dick Wolf)

Law & Order: SVU airs Thursdays at 10/9c on NBC.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Had Faith In ‘Dark Fate’ Director

Before he was hired for Terminator: Dark Fate, Tim Miller had directed only one feature-length film before. But seeing what he’d done with Deadpool was enough to convince the movie’s producers — including star Arnold Schwarzenegger — that he was capable of taking on such a massive, effects-laden project. After shooting the film with him, Schwarzenegger told us that faith in him was entirely justified. (Click on the media bar below to hear Arnold Schwarzenegger)

Terminator: Dark Fate is playing now in theaters.

Al Pacino Has Directed, But He’s Definitely Not A Director

If you ask Al Pacino to describe himself, chances are he won’t use the word “director.” Yes, he has four directing credits — two dramas based on stage plays, a “making of” documentary, and a documentary about Shakespeare. But these projects have certainly given him an appreciation for the world-class directors he’s worked with, such as The Irishman director Martin Scorcese. So when Pacino does look back at his time behind the camera, he’s thankful for the education he got and the way it’s helped shape him into a more complete Hollywood professional. (Click on the media bar below to hear Al Pacino)

The Irishman is now playing in selected theaters, but will begin streaming November 27 on Netflix.

Naomi Scott Wings It: Why She Wanted To Be One Of ‘Charlie’s Angels’
