Rev Run and Tyrese Gibson, co-authors of New York Times bestseller Man-ology, have been tapped for a primetime talk show regarding men and relationships that will premiere on the OWN Network in early 2016.

According to Deadline:

“When Rev Run, Tyrese and CBS came to us with the idea of a primetime series we were energized by the chance to bring OWN viewers something fresh and entertainingly real in the ‘love space,’” said Sheri Salata, president, OWN.  “We can’t wait to turn them loose – enlightening us all about what makes men tick.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger, 67, looks badass in this featurette for the upcoming Terminator Genisys movie. Watch him wield his famously thick Austrian accent to say classic lines such as “I’ll be back” and “I’ve been waiting for you” in the clip (above). The movie comes out on July 1.

Common

Photos of Common on the Suicide Squad set caused quite a stir yesterday when he did not appear to be in costume as Black Manta, as it had been generally assumed he would portray that character.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

When Common’s appearance in the David Ayer movie was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter in April, it wasn’t revealed whom he’d be playing, although rumors quickly centered on Aquaman’s arch-enemy (and current member of the comic book Suicide Squad) Black Manta as a potential choice…

Speculation has centered on a few different Marvel characters that Common could potentially be portraying, but since many were initially wrong with their first guess, it’s probably best to wait and see what David Ayer has up his sleeve.

In a turn of fate, it appears Lifetime is cognizant of its cringe-worthy movies and is now making a stab at satire with A Deadly Adoption, starring Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell. The movie, which premieres on June 20, was kept a top-secret project per Vulture. Though the title suggests drama, we can’t help but picture how the overdramatization will lead to laughter with portrayals by famously funny people Wiig and Ferrell.
