Hawaii Five-0 Taps Vincent Pastore to Play Danny's 'Uncle' From Jersey
Well, this Hawaii Five-0 casting should be a big hit with TV fans: The Sopranos veteran Vincent Pastore is joining the cast of the CBS procedural in a recurring role.

Our sister site Deadline reports that Pastore will play Danny’s “uncle” Vito, a contractor who hails from (you guessed it) New Jersey.

Danny always assumed Vito was in the mob… even though the guy really doesn’t have any ties to organized crime.

Alice Cooper Cast as King Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar
Alice Cooper, who was born Vincent Damon Furnier in 1948, is best known as being an American actor, songwriter and singer, who has a career that spans more than five decades. His distinctive raspy voice and high-drama stage show featuring dueling swords, deadly snakes, electric chairs and more have earned him the name and reputation of being “The Godfather of Shock Rock.” Now, he is taking on a somewhat different role. Many believe his many years of onstage theatrics are going to help his performance be superior while appearing in the live theatrical production on NBC of “Jesus Christ Superstar!”

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Jurassic Park

I don’t know as anyone knew what to think when Jurassic Park, the first and original, hit the theaters. If you compared the first movie to what’s come out now you might be able to pinpoint certain moments when the dinosaurs didn’t move the same way, how they looked a bit different than what came later, and even more. But if you really nitpick that much then you’re either a critic or someone that lives to find every last little mistake in a movie while claiming to do so because you love it. To each their own and all but

Homeland Season 7 Gets Its Official Trailer

The official trailer for Homeland season 7 has just dropped and it looks like things are about to get seriously intense. And if you think that the show is all about predicting just what might happen with the current presidency then you’ve been paying attention for the last six seasons like a good viewer. Of course the show originally banked on Hillary Clinton winning the presidency but it’s kind re-calibrated since then. So far it’s now on course to see Claire Danes taking her character through a troubling arc that has her pit against the same people that she should

‘Mr. Robot’ Renewed for Season 4 at USA Network

Fans can relax, Mr. Robot has been renewed for a fourth season on USA. The visually-enticing show has been getting huge buzz since it first aired in 2015 and has been moving steadily forward ever since. Fans have taken to both Elliott and Mr. Robot in a way that was hoped for but possibly never expected. The idea of a hacker attempting to create a new world by tearing the old one down is something that tends to get a lot of people riled up and in many ways scared for the future even if it is a TV show.

“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” Had an Amazing Title for the Israeli Audience

Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs had a much different but somehow just as brilliant title for audiences in Israel. It’s Raining Falafel was how the Israeli people saw the popular kids film, since the Us title tends to get lost in translation. This is far from the first movie that has had to change its title to appeal to other countries and it likely won’t be the last. For those of you that don’t know, falafel is a dish that is made from ground chickpeas or fava beans, or both, and then deep fried before being served up. It’s

The Top Five Robert De Niro Yelling Scenes in Movies

Robert De Niro is an old hand at the Yelling Game. In fact he might have even had something to do with why yelling in movies is such a big thing since he’s been raising his voice since before a lot of us were born. Not all of his movies have him getting this vocal but some of the best he’s been in have certainly seen him reach a different level than others. He’s played some roles in which he was allowed to just cut loose and not bother with a filter, which is interesting when he really gets going

Old Disney Stars Have No Clue How to Draw the Disney Logo

It’s not really sad that the old Disney Channel stars weren’t able to draw the Disney logo. After all it wasn’t really their job. They were paid to act and be the face of the show, not draw the designs. Of course if this was in their job description it might have paid to give them drawing lessons so that they could actually draw the Mickey Mouse logo. It’s a little harder than you might think unless you’ve been doing it for a while since getting everything in proportion can be tough since your hand tends to want to over-exaggerate
