Hawaii Five-0 Taps Vincent Pastore to Play Danny's 'Uncle' From Jersey
Well, this Hawaii Five-0 casting should be a big hit with TV fans: The Sopranos veteran Vincent Pastore is joining the cast of the CBS procedural in a recurring role.

Our sister site Deadline reports that Pastore will play Danny’s “uncle” Vito, a contractor who hails from (you guessed it) New Jersey. Vito prides himself on being a Mr. Fix-It and travels to Hawaii to help Danny open his restaurant. Danny always assumed Vito was in the mob… even though the guy really doesn’t have any ties to organized crime.

Alice Cooper Cast as King Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar
Alice Cooper, who was born Vincent Damon Furnier in 1948, is best known as being an American actor, songwriter and singer, who has a career that spans more than five decades. His distinctive raspy voice and high-drama stage show featuring dueling swords, deadly snakes, electric chairs and more have earned him the name and reputation of being “The Godfather of Shock Rock.” Now, he is taking on a somewhat different role. Many believe his many years of onstage theatrics are going to help his performance be superior while appearing in the live theatrical production on NBC of “Jesus Christ Superstar!”

‘Gunpowder’ Review: Kit Harington Needs a Dragon’s Fire to Spark This Handsome Historical Yarn

‘Gunpowder’ Review: Kit Harington Needs a Dragon’s Fire to Spark This Handsome Historical Yarn
Gunpowder” invites a lot of comparisons to “Game of Thrones.” Much of the three-hour series is spent watching Kit Harington swing his sword around, sport period garb while walking through castles, deliver stirring motivational speeches, and recruit an army to defend his fellow men from persecution. Future generations can look at .gifs of a grimacing Harington and guess, “‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Gunpowder’?”

As fun as that sounds, the limited series deserves slightly more respect than such frivolity implies. It’s an earnestly made, well-told, true story about a group of 17th century Catholics who rebelled against a Protestant king that saw their faith as a threat and wanted them eliminated. Dragons do not belong here, nor should one wish for them to fly in and set the world ablaze.

But while “Gunpowder” tells its story clearly and respectably — previously unaware British viewers will see Guy Fawkes Day differently — its

The Top Five Monica (From Friends) Dishes You Must Try

Friends is one of the most iconic television series of all time. Not only does the show feature a cast of talented, quippy and successful actors, but it challenged the entertainment standards of ‘90s television and set a bar of excellence for future shows to come. Although the cast created an environment on screen of real friends who really cared about each other, audiences never seemed to get sick of the feel-good vibe that Friends was setting. In fact, the homey element of the show might arguably be the reason why it did so well — though I will venture

The Top 20 Thriller TV Shows of All-Time

I wondered why is the difference between a Thriller TV Show and a Suspense TV Show. As it turns out, they are technically the same, which is a bit of a disappointment. Thriller seems to have more potential for an upbeat ending, while suspense opens the door for a climactic downer. You can disagree with me, but when I put this list together I had to come up with a way that separates it from 100 similar lists that are copied and pasted for your annoyance. One thing that I found consistent with those annoying lists is that there are

How Ready Player One is Almost Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

We all remember how it felt watching Charlie open that chocolate bar and exclaim, “I’ve got a golden ticket!” Charlie was the underdog. He had no rich father with a factory full of workers (slaves) tearing away at chocolate bars non-stop. He wasn’t spoiled or TV obsessed or gluttonous. He was this poor child with a pure desire. And by the time we watched him enter that Wonka-vator and blast away into the sky, our imaginations were tickled, our hopes restored, and our desire for chocolate and every kind of sweet on the planet increased by ten million. Plus, we wanted
