It’s been just over 20 years since we first got to know Scott Foley on the beloved series Felicity, and he’s managed to have a pretty good run of success in Hollywood since then. He’s had long-running roles on that show, The Unit, and Scandal, along with extended guest roles on Grey’s Anatomy, True Blood, and Scrubs. The latter showed his flair for comedy, something he’ll be exercising once again on his new series, Whiskey Cavalier. It’s a hybrid show, mixing action with comedy, and Foley told us he was absolutely ready to do something a little lighter than Scandal.(Click on the media bar below to hear Scott Foley)
A sneak preview of Whiskey Cavalier will air right after the Oscars, and its official premiere will be next Wednesday (2/27) on ABC.
While artists like Freddie Mercury, Ray Charles, and James Brown weren’t alive long enough to see their highly acclaimed biopics enter theaters, Elton John is still around as Rocketman gets ready for its release. The film covers the singer’s early years, and John himself participated in the movie’s development, serving as its executive producer. One of the things you’ll see in the film is a pivotal scene from his life where he was paired up with writing partner Bernie Taupin, and he told us about that moment changed his life.

Between political statements like Brexit and calls to build walls, it feels like some of the world’s countries are becoming more and more isolationist.

The role of Jack Pearson on This Is Us has been a dream come true for Milo Ventimiglia. As an actor, he says, he’s gotten to act out the entire range of human emotions, from the highest highs to the lowest lows (he’s already had a death scene, after all!). Ventimiglia says he really couldn’t have asked for a better job, and he told us why he loves playing Jack as much as he does. (Click on the media bar below to hear Milo Ventimiglia)
The new film Fighting With My Family tells the real-life story of WWE star Paige and her own family. When a movie is made about your life, it’s got to be a little surreal to see somebody playing you on the big screen, but for Paige and the star of the film, Florence Pugh, it was the other way around. Paige told us it was actually Pugh who felt a little uncomfortable when they saw the film together.
Daniel Radcliffe faced the very real danger of stereotyping when he took the role of Harry Potter in the blockbuster movie series. After all, his face became synonymous with the franchise over the course of the eight films. But since the final Harry Potter movie was released, Radcliffe has been able to successfully reinvent himself through a series of well-received roles, including his current role as an angel on the new TV series Miracle Workers. When we spoke to Radcliffe, we asked if he had some kind of strategy in place to make sure he wouldn’t be seen as Harry Potter forever. (Click on the media bar below to hear Daniel Radcliffe)
