'The Walking Dead' Universe is Like Juggling Chainsaws, According to Show Boss Scott M. Gimple

Scott M. Gimple is the Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead Universe. As the creative mind behind several television series and movies, he likens his livelihood to “juggling chainsaws.” Here’s why.

Gimple is in charge of numerous properties from the world of ‘The Walking Dead’

Gimple is the architect laying the narrative structure for AMC’s The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and World Beyond. He is also working on launching two forthcoming series, Tales of the Walking Dead and an untitled spinoff that revolves around fan-favorite characters Daryl and Carol from the original Walking Dead show. Adding to his list of duties, Gimple is behind the much-awaited feature film trilogy that will revisit the narrative of The Walking Dead OG Rick Grimes.

Gimple explained how leading the charge in ‘The Walking Dead’ universe is like juggling chainsaws

The notoriously tight-lipped Gimple spoke with Looper to provide an update on The Walking Dead movie, among other projects. Although the creative head held back on plot details, he did provide insights into what it is like to work behind the scenes on such a high volume of dynamic content.

Luckily, the showrunners themselves are a huge source of support, and then there’s all of the other people I’m working with. But yeah, it’s crazy, and so many things shift. And then this year, everything shifted. The juggling act was like you were juggling those pins, and then they threw in a couple of chainsaws just to make it interesting.

It’s an incredible juggling act, but I will say, in my position, it’s extremely helpful to be dancing between all these things because you can see the connective tissue, and you can see those stories. Whether they go in and out of every show or some of the shows, whether it has to do with the movies or things we’re doing in the future, it is cool to be in the middle of it all.

‘Everything’s changing’ due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic

The Walking Dead cast and crew recently began production on the six season 10 bonus episodes as teased by showrunner Angela Kang during a New York Comic-Con panel. Although the show typically shoots during the summer, she confirmed that the team delayed production until the fall due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Gimple explained to Looper that other plans for The Walking Dead Universe are also in flux due to the effects of the pandemic.

I think it’s probable not to see much crossover in these first movies — but, again, everything’s changing. And this is taking a lot longer now than we expected. I’m just talking from a COVID-19 point of view, this big chunk of time we didn’t anticipate.

I think Robert Kirkman said it best: We’re using this time to really go over it and really road test it and really consider all the different directions we’re going in. So, we’re still in the lab in some ways. We’ve done a lot of work on it, but we’re trying to perfect it at the moment.

Fans can catch The Walking Dead series on AMC and AMC+.

'The Shining': Why Stanley Kubrick Changed the Original Ending

Stanley Kubrick was a director known for his uncompromising vision, however, that doesn’t mean he couldn’t change his mind. For example, he decided to significantly alter the ending of his only horror film, 1980’s The Shining. Here’s what the original ending was like — and why Kubrick changed it.

The original ending of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’

Firstly, a recap. The final cut of The Shining originally depicted the caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, Jack Torrance, freezing to death outside the Overlook. During that version of the film’s final shot, we also see Torrance in a photograph of a Fourth of July ball which had been held at the Overlook in the 1920s. This ending spawned numerous interpretations.

According to Entertainment Weekly, an earlier cut of the film included a scene before audiences saw the photograph where Jack’s wife, Wendy, and their son, Danny, went to a hospital. There, they see Stuart Ullman, the man who gave Jack his job. Ullman tells them there’s no evidence of anything supernatural occurring at the Overlook. In addition, he then gives Danny a tennis ball before cutting back to the photograph of Jack at the Fourth of July celebration. 

Earlier in the film, a tennis ball had mysteriously rolled down the hallway of the Overlook and lured Danny to the haunted Room 237. The original ending with the tennis ball was even more ambiguous than the finished ending without it.

The film’s executive producer dishes on the original ending

Jack Harlan, the executive producer of the film, opened up about the initial ending. “The tennis ball is the same thing as the photograph — it’s unexplainable,” Harlan said. “It makes Ullman now another ghost element. Was he the ghost from the very beginning? The film is complex enough because nothing is explained.” Harlan explained how the ambiguities of The Shining hurt and helped the film.

“That non-explaining is what was bad for the film initially,” Harlan opined. “It was not a huge success. Now everybody thinks it’s the best horror film ever or whatever. But when it came out the audience expected a horror film with a resolution, with an explanation. Who is the baddie? What was going on? And they were disappointed — many of them, anyway.”

Why Stanley Kubrick changed the ending

Although The Shining had the desired effect on audiences. Kubrick still opted to change the ending. “The fact they were left puzzled was exactly what Stanley Kubrick wanted. And when the film [screened for critics] and [it] wasn’t well received, [Warner Bros.] quite rightly suggested, ‘It’s enough, just take [the hospital scene] out.’ So Stanley did it. He’s not stubborn, especially since this is a film mainly to entertain people.”

The legacy of ‘The Shining’

Afterward, The Shining won over audiences. According to Collider, a remastered version of the film premiered in cinemas in 2019. How many other 1980s horror films got re-released in the 2010s? In addition, the world was treated to an acclaimed sequel to The Shining called Doctor Sleep. The Shining resonated, even if the final cut differs from Kubrick’s initial vision.

Kaitlyn Bristowe Is Cruella de Vil in 'DWTS' Paso Doble

Dancing With the Stars went spooky for Villains Night — and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s costume couldn’t be more up her alley. The former Bachelorette and proud dog mom channeled Cruella de Vil for a Paso Doble with her partner, Artem Chigvintsev. 

“I’ve always loved 101 Dalmatians, but I could not be more opposite than Cruella de Vil,” Kaitlyn said in a pre-dance package, opening up about how she rescued her two dogs, Ramen and Pinot, from South Korea. 

Kaitlyn and Artem brought some power to the ballroom as they danced it out to “Disturbia” by Rihanna, which is just what Kaitlyn was hoping to deliver. 

“I feel like this is the time to show the judges I can hit those moves harder,” she said, referencing the judges’ comments last week about her having to “attack” her dances more. 

The pair’s performance impressed judge Derek Hough, who called the performance a “great way to end the show.” 

However, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba wanted more. 

“You are a good dancer and I saw you trying really hard tonight. But what didn’t go right was the lift and … it felt like at moments you gave up. I felt like your spirit dropped,” Carrie Ann said. “I don’t want to discourage you, because you are a great dancer, but it was another not great dance of yours.”

“For me, I know you’re very good, but it felt rushed,” Bruno shared. 

Kaitlyn and Artem earned a score of 24/30 for their performance. 

 

There are 101 things we love about this! We're ONE HOUR away from #VillainsNight on ABC. #DWTS @kaitlynbristowe

A post shared by Dancing With The Stars #DWTS (@dancingabc) on

Kaitlyn and Artem have been killing it week after week on DWTS. Their Samba last week earned them three 9s, for a total of 27/30, and completely surprised Kaitlyn — especially after Carrie Ann critiqued her for holding back when it comes to dancing with her full range of emotions.

“I was not expecting the 9 [from Carrie Ann], so when that happened I was like, ‘OK, now I really want to show her next week that I can do it,” Kaitlyn told ET after the show. 

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

'Breaking Bad': Bryan Cranston Earned $225,000 Per Episode Playing Walter White, But Was It Enough?

The stars of hit shows can earn some serious salaries in exchange for their services.

All six Friends castmates were making $1 million per episode by the final season, and so were the stars of Seinfeld. Mark Harmon from NCIS was getting paid a whopping $525,000 per episode in 2019. And the notoriously big earner Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory made $1 million per episode, too.

Those facts are enough to make Breaking Bad fans wonder how well Bryan Cranston (Walter White) and Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) were compensated for their roles on the hit AMC series. It turns out that compared to some other actors on hit shows, this meth-cooking duo wasn’t making nearly as much.

No one knew how successful ‘Breaking Bad’ would become

These days, shows about suburbanites secretly conducting lives of crime are typical. But back when Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan was pitching his idea, the whole concept was a huge risk. And he had a hard time getting it picked up.

Both HBO and TNT passed on opportunity to produce the drama series. Gilligan called his HBO pitch the worst of his career, saying it was, “the worst meeting I ever had … The woman we [were] pitching to could not have been less interested—not even in my story, but about whether I actually lived or died,” Mental Floss reported.

Showtime was interested, but thought it was too similar to another of their products, Weeds. And then finally AMC agreed to tell Walter White’s story.

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul aren’t television’s top earners

Business Insider reported that Cranston brought home $225,000 per episode on Breaking Bad while Paul had a more modest salary at $150,000 per episode by the end of the show. This means the lead character made around $1.8 million for the second half of the final season of the show while his sidekick got $1.2 million.

That’s not a terrible salary for a year’s work. However, it’s paltry in comparison to how much revenue Breaking Bad earned throughout its tenure. And it’s a lower number compared to some of those other top-earning television stars like Parsons, Harmon, and Jennifer Aniston.

The ‘Breaking Bad’ stars are still making money

It’s true that Cranston and Paul aren’t making anywhere close to $80 million like Walt and Jesse did manufacturing their blue sky meth. But they’re still enjoying money-making opportunities even after the show is over.

Cranston was already a highly respected actor in the industry but now he’s a next-level superstar thanks to multiple Emmy wins. His Breaking Bad fame probably had something to do with Cranston getting cast in his newest drama project, Your Honor.

Meanwhile, both Cranston and Paul reprised their roles as Walt and Jesse for the made-for-TV sequel, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. The project had a $6 million budget which no doubt included comfortable salaries for both actors.

By Hollywood standards, these two are extraordinarily successful, even if they don’t make as much as Jerry Seinfeld.

'DWTS': Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson Slay 'Black Swan' Routine

Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson absolutely slayed their Villains Night routine!

During Monday’s Dancing With the Stars, the dynamic dance duo performed a Black Swan-inspired Paso Doble  set to District 78’s “Swan Lake Remix.” The wardrobe department pulled out all the stops this week, dressing a shirtless Nev in black feather pants and Jenna in a stunning white dress with a tutu and matching headpiece.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said, “It has to be perfect… and it was!” while Carrie Ann Inaba commented, “There were high expectations but you met them and you exceeded them.”

“From beginning to end, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so good,'” added Derek Hough. “Just beautiful.”

Nev and Jenna received a total score of 30/30 for the routine, the first perfect score of the season!

We took a dance to the dark side with #TeamBeNeevers, and there’s no going back 😈 @NevSchulman#DWTS#VillainsNightpic.twitter.com/X78DZFCVYv

Ahead of the performance, ballet superfan Nev joked to ET last week that in addition to “schooling” Jenna on ’80s and ’90s history, he’s also been giving her lessons on the art of ballet.

“The only thing I can school her on dance-wise is ballet,” he said. “Otherwise, she knows all the stuff.”

In another interview with ET earlier this season, Nev opened up about why he always wanted to take part in the competition show, but “never thought it would really happen.”

“I had imagined and dreamed it might happen. A lot of people don’t know this about me but I’ve been in the world of dance, both as a dancer and a fan, and as a photographer and filmmaker almost my entire life,” he explained. “I love and am totally obsessed with dance, so I’ve always sort of mused at the idea of maybe one day being on the show.”

Joe Giudice is selling sex toys now, among other things, as the former RHONJ husband makes a life in Italy

It looks like things are on the upswing for Joe Giudice.

Joe has been busy building a new life for himself in Italy after his deportation from the U.S., and this includes trying his hand with some new business ventures.

Since his divorce from RHONJ wife, Teresa Giudice, Joe has dabbled in different businesses and that makes sense since he confirmed that he signed the house over to his ex-wife during their divorce process.

One of those ventures includes the sale of sex toys.

Joe sent toys to the RHONJ ladies

Joe is reportedly working with a company called Zalo USA and he recently updated his Instagram bio to include Zalo USA Partner.

“My other business is Zalo USA. It’s basically a woman’s massager,” he said discreetly. “I wouldn’t call it my sex shop because it’s not, we don’t sell any of those things.”

“It’s basically just high-end massagers that are made by an Italian French designer. So they’re made of top quality material and, I mean, it’s a very good product,” he continued.

  • RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice got breast implants and estranged husband Joe loves them

Joe then went on to explain that he’s always wanted to get involved in the business. He also revealed that he gave them to a few special ladies – the RHONJ cast.

“I sent one to Teresa and the whole cast. I’m sure that they’re having fun,” he said.

Earlier this year, during an interview on the Wendy Williams show, Joe confirmed that he was working on this venture with his ex-wife, Teresa Giudice.

“It’s a business that I always wanted to get into,” he said. “I decided that since I gotta pay her every month anyway why not get involved and help?”

“And by the way, thank you for the gift. I opened it,” Wendy said as Joe giggled in the background.

“It buzzes,” she said.

Joe is also venturing into the furniture business

In addition to sex toys, Joe is also dipping his toes into selling furniture.

“I just signed a deal to start importing sofas, chairs, and what have you from an Italian company here,” he explained.

“We’re going to start shipping couches directly to the customer, to their home so you cut out the middle guy,” he said. “So I’m going to be wholesaling sofas to the customers all over the place.”

It seems that Joe is really doing what it takes to rebuild his life after finishing his 42-month sentence in prison.

Considering that Joe is still responsible for helping Teresa care for their four daughters, Gia, 19, Gabriela, 16, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 11, here’s hoping that Joe can make these businesses lucrative.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently on hiatus at Bravo.

‘Northern Exposure’ Stars Rob Morrow, Janine Turner & More Explain Why The CBS Cult Fave Was “Groundbreaking” For Its Time – Vulture Festival

The stars of Northern Exposure Rob Morrow, Janine Turner, Barry Corbin, Cynthia Geary and John Corbett reunited to kick off the annual Vulture Festival. During the Monday panel, the cast members reminisced on their time starring in the CBS series, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year.

“Your chance of having a hit television is probably as good as your chance of going to space and circling Earth,” Corbin said about Northern Exposure’s success. “The casting fit, the location fit, the music fit. Everything fit.”

Corbin, who starred as astronaut and retired Marine fighter pilot Maurice J. Minnifield, agreed with his fellow cast mates that all the elements behind Northern Exposure made for both a high-performing series and one that stood out from other shows at the time.

When the Emmy-winning series hit the air in 1990, Northern Exposure was simply about young Dr. Joel Fleischman (Morrow) and his efforts to set up shop in the small town of Cicely in Arrowhead County, Alaska. However, as the series progresses, Fleischman and his band of Cicely locals face the past, outer space, the apocalypse and more.

“The weirdness just came and went,” Morrow said of the show. “I never thought of it as weird, it was just idiosyncratic.”

Janine Turner, who starred as the ambitious Maggie O’Connell, dubbed the show “intellectually stimulating” given its subject matter and presentation. But in addition to taking audience members for various adventures through space and time, Northern Exposure took risks and offered a a fresh take on the roles women held in television. She said Maggie O’Connell went against conventional beauty standards for women and showed that women can be more than home-keepers and housewives.

The actress added that given its summer slot, Northern Exposure didn’t feel the same pressure to fit the same mold primetime shows presented at the time, thus having more freedom to touch on odd topics and themes. Co-star Cynthia Geary agreed noting that “everything in this show is groundbreaking,” from its dream sequences to Morrow’s character breaking the fourth wall.

John Corbett, whose Chris Stevens was a DJ and ex-convict, said that the oddities and charm of Northern Exposure left viewers with a sense of whimsy, which prepared them for the upcoming week. But Northern Exposure‘s ability to attract people from all walks of lives, from well-paid doctors to “hillbillies,” contributed to its long-lasting effect, Corbett said.

“When you can get that group together to like a show, that was magical,” he said.

Northern Exposure was created by Josh Band and John Falsey. CBS announced in 2018 that a revival of the quirky series is in the works and will feature Morrow reprising his role. Written by Brand, the revival centers on Dr. Joel Fleischman, played by Morrow, who returns to Cicely, Alaska, for the funeral of an old friend and finds a new set of quirky characters and reunites with old ones in this continuation of the classic series.

'The Midnight Sky' Teaser Asks "Is Anyone Out There?" Ahead of This Week's Full Trailer

George Clooney‘s new Netflix movie The Midnight Sky is dropping its full trailer later this week. But first, here’s an enigmatic little teaser that gives absolutely nothing away, but does put Clooney’s name in big letters. It’s the teasiest of teasers – 43 seconds of footage that essentially winks at the audience and says, “Check back with us later!” In the film, Clooney plays a scientist trying to stop a group of astronauts from returning to Earth because of a global catastrophe. Watch The Midnight Sky teaser below.

The Midnight Sky Teaser

Netflix has a bunch of big titles headed our way this winter. There’s David Fincher’s Mank, there’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, featuring Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman (in his final role), and then there’s The Midnight Sky, directed by and starring George Clooney. The post-apocalyptic film follows “Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe.” The cast also features David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir, and Tiffany Boone, and was adapted from the book Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton. The book synopsis gives us a bit more insight into what to expect:

Augustine, a brilliant, aging astronomer, is consumed by the stars. For years he has lived in remote outposts, studying the sky for evidence of how the universe began. At his latest posting, in a research center in the Arctic, news of a catastrophic event arrives. The scientists are forced to evacuate, but Augustine stubbornly refuses to abandon his work. Shortly after the others have gone, Augustine discovers a mysterious child, Iris, and realizes that the airwaves have gone silent. They are alone.

At the same time, Mission Specialist Sullivan is aboard the Aether on its return flight from Jupiter. The astronauts are the first human beings to delve this deep into space, and Sully has made peace with the sacrifices required of her: a daughter left behind, a marriage ended. So far the journey has been a success. But when Mission Control falls inexplicably silent, Sully and her crewmates are forced to wonder if they will ever get home.

There’s no official release date at the moment – we just know that the flick will arrive on Netflix in December. And I’m guessing we’ll know the official date very soon, because the full Midnight Sky trailer arrives Tuesday, likely bringing that date along with more footage.

'The Good Wife': Where Is Josh Charles Now?

Legal drama fanatics were all about The Good Wife, which ran on CBS from 2009 to 2016.  Not only was it full of enticing courtroom drama, but the love affairs that protagonist Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies) gets involved with are steamy and irresistible to follow.

One of Alicia’s most interesting romances was with fellow attorney and boss, Will Gardner, who is played by actor Josh Charles. Charles has been largely out of the limelight since he left The Good Wife, but he’s back in television with Netflix’s new outer space series, Away.

‘The Good Wife’: Who is Josh Charles?

To the current generation, actor Josh Charles is probably most recognizable for his role as Will Gardner on The Good Wife. But Charles was in the business long before he snagged this role as the womanizing attorney. His first prominent role was alongside the legendary late Robin Williams in The Dead Poets’ Society. 

This Oscar-winning film starred Williams as an English teacher at an elite boys’ boarding school; with his unconventional teaching methods, he changes the lives of many of his students, who include Ethan Hawke and Charles.

Since this role, Charles has gone on to snag parts in other films and series, such as After.Life and S.W.A.T.  He won a Screen Actors Guild nomination for his role as Dan Rydell in Sports Night, which itself won an Emmy. Overall, Charles has had a prolific acting career, even aside from his outstanding work on The Good Wife.

Who did Charles play on ‘The Good Wife’?

The Good Wife stars Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, an attorney who is also the estranged wife of Peter Florrick, a scandal-riddled politician.  Alicia and Peter have a complicated relationship and largely stay together for the sake of public appearances, as Peter runs for several government offices during the show’s 7-season run. 

While Alicia tries to stay away, for the most part, from extra-marital affairs, she has undeniable chemistry with Will Gardner, a colleague from her law school days and current boss.

Will is a womanizing and handsome attorney, but he actually is in love with Alicia, and the two have a steamy and secretive romance that lasts for most of season 3. Tragically, Will was killed in season 5, getting shot by a client in the courtroom.

The character was written off because Charles himself decided not to renew his contract after doing some soul-searching about his future. As sad as fans were to see Charles go, it didn’t take away from the impact that his portrayal of Will Gardner had on the show.

In fact, the role won Charles two Emmy nominations, and undoubtedly helped the show to win its own Emmy nomination.

What is Charles doing now? His new role on Netflix series ‘Away’

Since leaving The Good Wife, Charles has popped up here and there on television. He reprised his role as Blake in the Wet Hot American Summer franchise in 2016’s Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, and had a recurring role on Law and Order: True Crime.

He also had a guest role on Netflix’s popular sitcom, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The actor has also been busy being a dad to his two young kids.

These days, you can see Charles on Netflix’s new space drama starring Hilary Swank, Away. In it, he plays Matt Logan, a loving husband to astronaut Emma Green (played by Swank). Matt is a NASA engineer and former astronaut himself, who now has to stay on Earth due to a medical issue. 

Away follows the first space mission to Mars, led by Swank’s Emma Green, and the way an international team comes together to be able to achieve impossible things.

Although the show was popular, it was unfortunately canceled after its first season. We’ll see what’s next for our beloved Josh Charles!
