Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Melissa Fumero Tees Up Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'Surreal' Debut — Watch a Sneak Peek
Who’s ready for some Santiago sibling rivalry?

On Thursday’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine (NBC, 9/8c), self-proclaimed superfan Lin-Manuel Miranda guest-stars as Amy’s brother David — and TVLine has an exclusive sneak peek at his debut.

As previously reported, Amy and David are highly competitive. “I think the audience will have a lot of moments throughout the episode where they go, ‘Oh, that’s the reason why Amy is the way that she is,” newly christened Performer of the Week Melissa Fumero tells TVLine. “To say they have a strong sibling rivalry is putting it lightly.”

Lucky – Review

Harry Dean Stanton says farewell in the movie Lucky, which turned out to be the beloved actor’s last. Not much happens in Lucky and its slow, unhurried style may not appeal to everyone, but this movie has a big heart and a moving performance by Stanton that acts as a summary of his long and extraordinary career.

Lucky follows Lucky (Stanton) and his friends and neighbors who live in the dusty desert town of Cave Creek, Arizona. Lucky is 90 years old but fiercely independent, rejecting any idea of assisted living. The film follows his routines over a few days of his life. Lucky smokes, takes a sponge bath, gets dressed, listens to Spanish-language music, does yoga, and smokes some more. Lucky’s interactions with others consists of eating at a diner run by his friend Joe (Barry Shabaka Henley) where he does his crossword puzzles, and a daily stop at the local watering hole.

CSI Review: "House of Hoarders"

  • TVfanatic
Following an early season's worth recent rocky episodes, "House of Hoarders" was a pleasant surprise.

After weeks of sharks in pools, vampires taking on werewolves, and a gimpy serial killers wearing pleather suits, I was almost certain the show’s handling of this psychological ailment of the moment would be serve as nothing but shock value.

But the writers took time to address the issue as a mystery and a very real problem.

Of course, there were plenty of shocking, and pretty gross moments throughout the hour.

The house itself was depicted as an unpleasant, debilitating environment, but every reveal and disgusting detail was played toward the episode’s mystery. Was the hoarder really a killer? Was the mental disorder being played to hide a more sinister intent?

There were also some great character interactions, especially between Sara and Nick, as they viewed the case in different ways.

Sara had sympathy for Mrs.

Mandate for Merger

In a Screen Actors Guild election that was widely considered a referendum on merger with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, proponents of that idea emerged with a clear mandate.When the results of SAG's 2010 national board of directors election were announced Sept. 23, MembershipFirst, the SAG faction that emerged from the group of actors who helped scuttle merger in 2003, lost the fight for all 13 Hollywood-based national seats up for grabs to its rival faction, the pro-merger Unite for Strength. MembershipFirst partisans had held all 13 of those seats. The loss hands the coalition of Hollywood, New York, and regional moderates who had held a slim majority of the national seats—and who have been vocal in support of merger—a commanding boardroom advantage.Even more striking is MembershipFirst's loss of its majority on the Hollywood board. Unite for Strength won an overwhelming 33 of 35 open seats. Ufs, formed in

SAG National Board Candidates Announced

  • Digital Media Law
SAG yesterday released the official list of candidates for its upcoming national board elections. Notably, all of the open seats in La (the Hollywood Division) are held by MembershipFirst members, which means that, as was the case last year, Mf can at best maintain its level of representation on the national board. More likely, it will lose some of its board seats.

On the Hollywood divisional board, Mf could gain or lose, as all division seats are up every year. This contrasts with the national board, where approximately 1/3 of the 69 seats are up in any given year. The president and secretary-treasurer, who are ex officio members of the board, have two-year terms, and are not up for election this year.

Ballots in Hollywood and New York will be mailed on August 24 with a return deadline and tabulation on September 23. Election results are expected to be announced that evening.
