Prime Video drops final season trailer to 'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan'

Amazon Studios/Attila Szvacsek

On Wednesday, Amazon Studios released the cloak-and-dagger trailer to the fourth and final season of its Prime Video series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.

John Krasinski returns as Ryan, now the acting deputy director of the CIA, who "uncovers a series of suspicious black ops that could expose the vulnerability of the country," according to the streaming service.

"As Jack and the team investigate how deep the corruption runs, he discovers a far-worse reality—the convergence of a drug cartel with a terrorist organization—ultimately revealing a conspiracy much closer to home and testing our hero’s belief in the system he has always fought to protect."

In the trailer, Ryan warns, "They can move anything. Humans. Weapons. Suicide bombers. Unlimited resources paired with undying hatred."

Wendell Pierce returns as Ryan's ally James Greer, and the new season has veteran character actor Michael Peña joining the cast as Domingo "Ding" Chavez, a fan favorite special operator ripped from the pages of the late Clancy's books. Ryan recruits him to help crack the case by any means necessary.

The final season starts June 30 on Prime Video, with two episodes premiering each Friday, leading to the series finale on July 14.

Neil Patrick Harris judges in Hulu's new series 'Drag Me to Dinner'

Hulu/Jeong Park

As legislation pops up around the country meant to limit access to drag shows, a new drag show debuts Wednesday on Hulu. It’s called Drag Me to Dinner, starring Neil Patrick Harris as a judge and executive producer.

So what's the show about?

"Two pairs of drag queens, each in full drag regalia, trying to desperately prepare food and drink and entertainment for themed dinner parties," Harris explains, adding, "you'd be a fool not to want to observe the shenanigans."

Observing the shenanigans is what Harris says is a great way to open people's minds about drag.

"Opinions about drag sometimes come from lack of observation or experience," he shares. "And I think Drag Me to Dinner provides a great fun view into how they behave in a positive light way that might indoctrinate people into it in a way that they weren't expecting."

Even though it's great exposure, Harris' partner, David Burtka, also an executive producer, says it's not a show meant for kids.

"Your 7-year-old shouldn't be watching this, you know. It's for a more of an adult crowd, so use your discretion," says Burtka.

Nonetheless, the show's host, transgender comedian Murray Hill, says that now is the perfect time for a show like this.

"During this time of like fearmongering, you know, it's very important to literally just show queer people and drag people living, laughing, joyous lives," Hill expresses. "And to show that we're just all people first."

Harris agrees, explaining, "I've never been to a drag show where everyone wasn't cheering and laughing and smiling and dancing, and the positivity really shines through. So if we can help represent that to people who haven't seen it, I think that's a fantastic thing."

'Ted Lasso' cast says goodbye to "absolute dream of a show"

Apple TV+

 Is it the end of Ted Lasso? We don't know for sure, but we do know the finale of season 3 debuts Wednesday on Apple TV+. We've been told that this is the end of the story Jason Sudeikis and his co-creators set out to tell, but no one has said definitely if the show will return, or not.

Nick Mohammed plays Nate in the series, and tells ABC Audio, "it has been an absolute dream of a show."

"Especially partly because of the journey that Nate goes on and that it was so varied and, started out as something and then grew to something else and took a dark turn and so on," he continues. "So I guess it's just been really creatively satisfying."

That's why Mohammed isn't sure whether or not he'd want to be part of a Ted Lasso spinoff, fearing that it might live up to the original. "It'd be a shame to...besmirch that a little bit."

Brett Goldstein, who plays the always scowling Roy Kent on the show, is also one of the writers, and he says saying goodbye to the show was "very emotional."

Adds Goldstein, "Whatever happens, I'm not currently working every day with these people. And that is sad because it was a very nice life, very nice life, working with brilliant people who are also f****** lovely."

Joining the nostalgia is co-creator Brendan Hunt, who also plays Coach Beard on the show, who recalls his favorite day on set was filming at Wembley Stadium.

"Stadiums are great, but empty stadiums are magical," he shares. "And Wembley, even though it's not the original...is as close to a cathedral as football gets and we had the run of it."

'Wednesday' creators admit "surprise" at show's success, call Jenna Ortega a "once in a generation" talent


Alfred Gough and Miles Millar might not be household names, but their latest show certainly is: Wednesday.

The pair created the Netflix phenomenon, based off the work of cartoonist Charles Addams' characters from the '30s, which were adapted into the 1964 TV show The Addams Family, as well as movies decades later.

The pair collaborated with director Tim Burton to bring the show to life, but Gough told The Wrap the success of Wednesday was "kind of shocking."

"We were very proud of the show, but you never know how people are going to react to it," he told the trade.

"[I]t's brought so many emails and texts from people from all eras of our career saying how much they enjoyed it," Gough says.

"My parents, who are 80, were getting texts from their friends saying it's the first show they've watched with their grandkids. It's kind of incredible," he continues.

Millar said he's even heard that kids started taking cello and fencing classes since the show became a ratings hit — and a viral one, thanks to footage of star Jenna Ortega's Wednesday Addams dancing to The Cramps' "Goo Goo Muck."

The pair have re-teamed with Burton and Ortega for a sequel to the former's 1988 film Beetlejuice and have nothing but praise for the latter, who was briefly dinged by negative headlines when she said she had to "put her foot down" on set to "protect" the character.

Of this, Gough said, "You're dealing with an iconic character ... in a way that's never been done before."

He adds, "Once we got Jenna on board, it was a million discussions with her. We all wanted to do the character justice." Calling her Wednesday "iconic," Gough said, "Those kind of people come along once in a generation."

Arnold Schwarzenegger had high praise for his fellow action icon and Expendables franchise co-star Bruce Willis, who was forced to call it a career last year after he was diagnosed with aphasia, a degenerative brain condition.

Speaking to Cinemablend, the Terminator star, who can now be seen in the Netflix action-comedy series Fubar, called the Die Hard legend "fantastic."

Schwarzenegger added, "He was, always for years and years, is a huge, huge star. And I think that he will always be remembered as a great, great star. And a kind man."

Arnold continued, "I understand that under his circumstances, health-wise, that he had to retire. But in general, you know, we never really retire. Action heroes, they reload."

In 2023, Willis' wife, Emma Heming Willis, updated fans as to her husband's condition, noting it had progressed to frontotemporal dementia.

In March, Willis was seen in a family video, blowing out the cake for his 68th birthday.

HBO drops full trailer for The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp's controversial 'The Idol'

HBO/Eddy Chen

After it received a five-minute standing O at its debut at the Cannes Film Festival last week, HBO has debuted a full trailer to The Idol, starring The Weeknd in his series acting debut, and Lily-Rose Depp, the actress daughter of Johnny

She plays a pop star in crisis who falls under the spell of The Weeknd's Tedros.

"You're the American dream," says Tedros, credited as Abel "The Weeknd" Tesfaye. "Rags to riches. Trailers to mansions. You're f****** Jocelyn. Just be you."

"Easy," she responds with a smile. "I'll just do that."

However, it's not that easy — the trailer shows her falling under his spell, and falling for him, as he takes increasing control of her. One scene has him blindfolding Jocelyn in the studio, and sensually telling her, "We need to block out all the noise. Now sing."

According to the streaming service, "After a nervous breakdown derailed Jocelyn's last tour, she's determined to claim her rightful status as the greatest and sexiest pop star in America. Her passions are reignited by Tedros, a nightclub impresario with a sordid past. Will her romantic awakening take her to glorious new heights or the deepest and darkest depths of her soul?"

The Idol, which also stars Troye SivanThe SimpsonsHank AzariaSchitt's Creek Emmy winner Dan Levy, and horror director and Inglorious Basterds star Eli Rothdebuts on HBO June 4 at 9 p.m.

Don't forget, like Dory: 'Finding Nemo' turns 20

Nemo and his pals -- Disney/Pixar

Twenty years ago, a small clownfish named Nemo swam into the hearts of moviegoers.

Alexander Gould voiced the titular character in Pixar's Finding Nemo, which was released 20 years ago May 30, way back in 2003, when the actor was just 9 years old. However, he was 6 when he started working on the animated blockbuster, he explained to Good Morning America.

The film — directed by Andrew Stanton, and starring Albert Brooks as Nemo's overprotective dad, Marlin, and Ellen DeGeneres as a regal blue tang with a memory problem — also made history. It holds the distinction of being the first Pixar film to win the coveted best animated feature Oscar, doing so at the 2004 Academy Awards.

If you ask Gould why the film has stood the test of time, he has a theory.

"It just has so many beautiful themes," he told GMA. "I think that's probably why it was such a cultural phenomenon at the time. It just spoke so deeply to everybody who watched it."

"You pick up all the good messages of having faith in yourself, trusting yourself, being able to overcome obstacles in your own life. Things that might seemingly hold you back don't actually hold you back," he added. "For parents, it has great themes around letting go and pushing your kids into the world and letting them thrive by their own merit."

Having been in the movie has another big bonus, the Weeds veteran explains: "I have a bunch of nieces and nephews, and I just got to rewatch it with all of them, and they had a blast. They're quoting the movie to me and asking me questions about filming it while they're watching, which is very fun."

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

Earlier in the caption, Snook, 35, reflected on her time with the show, explaining, "It’s hard to express what this show has meant to me. The places I got to go, the immense talent I got to work with…it breaks my heart that it is all over."

"But my heart had to be this full of all the memories, good times, challenges and triumphs, to be able to break at all…so that makes me grateful," she continued. "To have been blessed to join this crazy adventure of a show will be a career highlight, which will no doubt be hard to top. I am so, so proud and humbled by everyone’s hard work season after season: we all set the bar high for each other, then exceeded it and excelled, in every department."

"The friendships, the scripts, the locations, the one liners, the early mornings, the last minute changes, all the highs and lows: I’m going to miss it all. The people of this show are a talented bunch, and I’m proud to have worked alongside them, it’s the people I will miss most of all," Snook expressed.

"Thank you for all the love and support," she concluded. 

The news comes one day after Succession said goodbye to fans, ending its four-season run on HBO.

Knife-wielding man threatens Benedict Cumberbatch and family at their London home

Samir Hussein/WireImage

A knife-wielding suspect was arrested after he kicked in the garden gate of Benedict Cumberbatch's north London home, and threatened the Doctor Strange star and his family. 

According to the Daily Mail, the incident happened earlier this month. The suspect, identified as 35-year-old Jack Bissell, made his way into the actor's garden, smashed potted plants and tore the intercom from the door after spitting on it. According to the authorities, Bissell was overheard screaming, "I know you've moved here, I hope it burns down," while the Oscar-nominated actor, his wife, Sophie, and their children were inside. 

The paper says Bissell, a former chef at the ritzy Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair, was later identified as a suspect thanks to the DNA he left on the intercom and was arrested. A restraining order was issued against him, which is when news of the attack was made public.

It's not known why Bissell went on the rampage, but according to the paper, he told a local shop owner he was going to break into the over $4 million home and "burn it to the ground." 

A source tells the paper that Benedict and Sophie have had "many sleepless nights" since the "targeted attack," noting, "Naturally all of the family were absolutely terrified and thought this guy was going to get in and hurt them."
