Tricia Helfer is Dracula

Deadline reports that Tricia Helfer, best known as the staggering hot blonde Six on the stellar Battlestar Galactica remake (2004-2009) is playing Dracula in season four of the Syfy action-horror Van Helsing.

I never watched the show so…whatever. I can’t even work up enough care to deliver snark on this one.

Iger Confirms Benioff and Weiss Star Wars

D. B. Weiss & David Benioff

Bob Iger confirmed that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be behind the next big Star Wars installment from Disney. This won’t happen until 2022 as Iger said that they will be taking a hiatus on the films for a bit.

Bob Iger:

“The conclusion that we reached was that three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to really gear up for the next film’s release.”

Indeed. Considering how things are shaping up (or falling apart) for the Game of thrones fellas, 3 years may be just the amount of time needed for a certain group of fans to forgive them…maybe.

Midsommar Trailer

Written and directed by Ari Aster (Hereditary) Midsommar tells the tale of a young woman who joins her boyfriend on a summer trip where things go horribly, horribly awry.

Just a word of advice. If you go somewhere and people are all dressed in white and have flowers in their hair…head for zee hills. Still not as scary as the migrant no-go zones but I’ll check it out on streaming.

Tim Conway Has Passed At 85

85 is not a bad stretch, especially considering all that he gave the world in that time. Tim Conway was an actor and comedian whose career spanned over 50 years. Starring in The Steve Allen Show, McHale’s Navy, The Carol Burnett Show and who could forget the character Dorf. Tim Conway had a rich career and brought actual laughter to people’s lives which is more than some comedians can say in this day and age.

RIP Tim, thanks for all the laughs.
