Eddie Redmayne plays transgender pioneer Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl due out November 27. Elbe née Einar Mogens Wegener was one of the first people to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Redmayne reunited with his Les Miserables director Tom Hooper for the film.

The 33-year-old Oscar winner talks about the challenging role with OUT magazine. He discusses the advice he received from the trans community for his preparation and also shares thoughts on gender and Caitlyn Jenner. Check out more pics below snapped by John Balsom featured in the publication’s September 2015 Fall Preview issue.

On What The Role Taught Him About Gender

“That it’s fluid, I suppose. And also that it needn’t be labeled. My greatest ignorance when I started was that gender and sexuality were related. And that’s one of the key things I want to hammer home to the world: You can be gay or straight, trans man or woman, and those two things are not necessarily aligned.”

Without a doubt, talk of the Twin Peaks revival dominated Showtime’s TCA panel. It was revealed that David Lynch will shoot the series continuously as a movie, and later cut it into episodes. Initially, nine episodes were ordered but could be more depending on how long the shoot goes for. Though a 2017 premiere date is slated, it could be ready for 2016. Again, it all depends on Lynch who has complete creative control over the project.

In other Showtime-related news, the network revealed the renewals of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex. Both series will head into fourth seasons. Meanwhile, the network also dropped the first trailer for its new offering, Billions.

Damian Lewis returns to the network in a complex drama about power politics in the world of New York high finance. Paul Giamatti and Malin Akerman also star in the show. Akerman looks like she’s playing one tough be-yotch. Love it. Check out the clip below.

Billions Show Synopsis

“Billions is a bold, contemporary drama that explores worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod (Damian Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, Billions weaves an intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey.”

Although I’m absolutely tone deaf, I love karaoke. But only in the privacy of my own home or drunk with friends in a private room at some bar. Naturally, when I came across this new app Sing! Karaoke, I had to try it out. If you love to sing, definitely give it a whirl. It allows fans to hear what they’d sound like singing with their favorite artist.

Luke Bryan and Jason Derulo got together to sing Derulo’s smash hit “Want To Want Me” using the fun new app. R&B and country singers performing duets is nothing new. These two continue that grand tradition and absolutely slay it. Check it out below. Bryan has a pretty sick falsetto and looks like he’s having a blast. His enthusiasm is quite infectious actually.

Winona Ryder Talks Beetlejuice Sequel

In: Donovan, Movies
winona-ryder-beetlejuice

While doing press for Big Eyes last year, Tim Burton revealed the long-rumored Beetlejuice sequel was in the works with one major condition- if Michael Keaton signs on to play the titular character. The news surprised many including Winona Ryder herself.

Though the 43-year-old actress already knew about the project and apparently involved, she was under the impression that it was a ‘hush hush top secret.’ Now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag, Ryder feels comfortable talking about the sequel.

Not much is revealed to Seth Meyers other than the fact that it is still happening. Her anecdote, however, about her experience with TSA employees who are fans of the classic film is a tad priceless. Those bitches yield so much power. LOL. Watch the cute interview below.

BET announced it’s developing a miniseries about New Edition. The three-night event will be co-produced by members of the 80s boyband, but with one glaring omission. Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant have all signed on but not Bobby Brown despite being one of the founding members of the Boston act.

“It’s been a long time coming and that time is finally here! Now that we have signed the deal, New Edition’s journey will be captured in a three night miniseries to tell our life story through our very own eyes,” New Edition said in a statement. The boy band added, “We are happy to have New Edition Enterprises collaborate with BET Networks’ Debra Lee and Stephen Hill along with Jesse Collins Entertainment. From our beginning in the Orchard Park Projects in Boston to Hollywood and everything in between, just like The Temptations and Jackson 5 – we are ready to retrace our footsteps and show everyone how we got here. For the fans all over the world, this one’s for you.”

With the actual members on board, the project should be entertaining. The TLC biofilm on VH1 was successful due to T-Boz and Chilli working behind the scenes. I expect a similar outcome here. Production is set to begin in early 2016 with a premiere later that year. Check out some of my favorite tracks from New Edition below.

For those worried about the eye candy deficiency due to Colton Haynes exiting Arrow. Fear not. Producers have added an equally sculpted stud to fill the void for Season 4.

Before we get to that hot juicy ass, let’s talk about another new addition. Rutina Wesley of True Blood fame heads to Starling City for a multi-episode arc as reported by The Wrap. Meanwhile, Suburgatory and Enlisted alum Parker Young joins the series as a potential love interest for Thea Queen (Willa Holland). Not a bad rebound ;)

If you’re not familiar with all of Parker’s assets, check out a few shirtless pics below, along with his memorable car wash scene from Suburgatory. Holy hotness.

Somehow I missed this juicy morsel from last week. Better late than never I suppose.

With the runaway success of Empire, it’s no surprise that FOX is looking to expand, excuse the pun, its empire. Lee Daniels is reportedly working on a companion series for the breakout hip-hop drama. Working title Star will take place in Atlanta with the music business also serving as the backdrop for the Dreamgirls-inspired series.

“Like Empire, it’s set against the backdrop of the music business but from a very different perspective,” Fox chairman and CEO Gary Newman said. “Set Atlanta, it’s about three girls who come together to form a band and it’s about their rise to the top in a very challenging business. It’s the perspective of the artist and, without getting too much into the storyline, one of our characters is rising out of poverty and there is a a lot from Lee’s own life that’s baked into the DNA of this project.”
