‘Doctor Who’: The Next Doctor Rumored to Be ‘Chewing Gum’s’ Black Female Star — Report
Every time the star of “Doctor Who” has announced they’re stepping down, speculation regenerates about his possible replacement. Ah, but what if this time, instead of a white male Doctor, the BBC finally listened to fans who’ve been seeking some diversity for the role?
According to a Nerdist, a source close to production insists that Michaela Coel will replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor, which would make her the first female and first black actor to play the role. This source is not an official BBC spokesperson though, and the statement the BBC released to Nerdist didn’t confirm anything: “No casting decisions have been made yet for ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11.”

Trailers That Ruled, Movies That Stunk: Battle: Los Angeles
I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this segment before but I’m glad it’s starting today. As many of you might know by now, I don’t hold a lot of weight on movie trailers with regards to how good a film will be. And it’s for good reason. Too often we’ve been duped by a trailer that absolutely rocks and then the movie itself, doesn’t nearly live up to how awesome we thought it was going to be. It’s because in reality movie trailers are a big business. They play an integral role in marketing of films so the

There is no chance you see anything weirder today than what I’m about to show you right now. As many of us have been following the Bill O’Reilly firing saga, it seems that we’re just too focused on the details. I mean why focus on the fact that O’Reilly sexually harassed women?
