Caitlin Carver joins Margot Robbie in figure skating drama I, Tonya

Back in the day, my mother and sister used to subject me to countless hours of Women’s Figure Skating, whenever the Winter Olympics would roll around. I used to writhe on the floor in agony, doing my best to block out the symphonic music and droll of the commentators.

Chris Pine and director Craig Gillespie may board The Finest Hours

So SHADOW RECRUIT didnít seem to do so well for Chris Pine ? I thought he would make an excellent Jack Ryan, but the audiences just werenít there for it. I thought it was entertaining enough.

Disney to put Jon Hamm's Million Dollar Arm up against Godzilla next Summer

Jon Hamm is one of my favorite actors working today and I am still baffled that he hasn't been headlining more films.

While he may not be a superhero yet (give this guy Batman...
