Stephen Amell just can’t stop playing comic book characters. The Arrow star trades in his bow and arrow for hockey sticks for his new gig.

The 33-year-old actor just signed on to appear in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. He’ll play vigilante Casey Jones who eventually becomes a love interest for April O’Neil (Megan Fox). Someone’s gotta clean her pipes and Leonardo and company aren’t exactly up for task ;)

When they were BFFs, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak provided some of the most hilarious moments on the first few seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Their fights were equally as riveting and epic. There was a moment in time when the two couldn’t even be in the same room together. However, the two buried the hatchet a couple of seasons ago.

Personally, I believe Leakes was open to reconciling once she started to achieve success outside the Housewives franchise. I like NeNe but she doesn’t do well when others do better than her. Now that she sorta has the upper hand with Kim and is enemy No. 1 on RHOA, I can see why she agreed to this.

Bravo announced a new spinoff titled NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches which follows the ladies driving from ATL to LAX. Hopefully, this ends up better than their last road trip. Remember when the two almost came to physical blows on a bus headed to Miami?

“Atlanta’s ‘most driven’ housewives…drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure,” the network said in a statement. “The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy.”

The network also revealed other programs coming in the future. Find out what new and returning shows are on deck.

trevor-noah-late-show

Earlier this year, Jon Stewart announced his exit from The Daily Show after sitting behind the desk for 17 years. After several names were tossed around as possible replacements, one has been picked.

Trevor Noah has been officially named as Stewart’s successor. The 31-year-old comedian is a relatively new correspondent to the show, having only appeared three times. He has, though, hosted previously- a late-night talk show in his native country, South Africa. No word on when Stewart will sign off or when Noah takes over the desk has been revealed.

“Trevor Noah is an enormous talent. He has an insightful and unique point of view, and most importantly, is wickedly funny” – Comedy Central’s president Michele Ganeless

Production has begun on Suicide Squad in Toronto. While the main cast has been set in stone for some time now, names are still being added to the highly-anticipated DC Comics supervillain film.

Canadian entertainment news outlet eTalk broke the news of Scott Eastwood’s addition. Clint’s son is certainly racking up the credits as of late. I have no doubt he’ll be a household name in the near future if he keeps this momentum.

No word on what role he’ll be playing but eTalk teased more details will be revealed later. The 29-year-old actor’s involvement in the film reunites him with director David Ayer. The two previously worked together on Fury.

There is also another casting development for Suicide Squad. Find out below who else is suiting up for the comic book flick.

When NBC first announced it was resurrecting Heroes for a 13-episode miniseries, many were hopeful that some of the original cast members would return.

nbc-revives-90s-sitcom-coach

Out of all the sitcoms to resurrect from the 1990s, this one comes out of left field. Even more surprising is the fact, the original series ran on ABC initially. NBC, though, somehow got their peacock claws on Coach and convinced Craig T. Nelson to reprise his role. The network announced it’s ordered 13 episodes.

Coach aired on ABC from 1989-1997 and was a Top 20 hit show for the first six seasons. The revival will “pick up 18 years later and find his character Hayden Fox interrupting his retirement to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.”

It’s not known if any of the other original cast members are returning. Hopefully, a couple of them make special cameos.

This revival comes off the heels of another 90s classic being resurrected. FOX renewed The X Files for a six-episode event earlier this week. What show from the 90s will be resuscitated next? Weigh in below.
