Ronda Rousey Needed 9-1-1 For Injury On Set Of ‘9-1-1’
Ronda Rousey was injured on the set of Fox’s first-responder drama series 9-1-1 last week, Deadline has confirmed, nearly severing a finger while shooting a scene. Word is the Olympic judo medalist, former Ufc champion and current WWE star didn’t break character, finishing the shot before going to a local hospital, where she learned she broke two fingers on her left hand.

The news comes after Deadline scooped last week that Rousey had joined the cast of the upcoming third season of the series recurring as Lena Bosko, a member of the Los Angeles Fire Department Station 136 who leaps into action to save lives when a disaster hits.

According to TMZ, Rousey was shooting a scene in which her character was slamming a door. Instead, she slammed the door on the middle and ring fingers of her left hand. The middle finger was broken and the tendon severed,

‘9-1-1’ Season 3 Trailer: Yes, That’s a Tsunami at the Santa Monica Pier (Video)

  • The Wrap
Sound the alarm: Fox has dropped a first look at the third season of Ryan Murphy’s first-responder drama “9-1-1.” And from the looks of the trailer, the Station 118 crew is going to be struggling to keep their heads above water.

Seems newlyweds Athena (Angela Bassett) and Bobby (Peter Krause) won’t get to enjoy marital bliss for long this season as they’ll most likely be called to respond to that tsunami barreling for the Santa Monica Pier. But it’s be poor Buck (Oliver Stark) who finds himself in the wrong place at the extremely wrong time.

Hopefully the finally-coupled-up Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Chimney (Kenneth Choi), fully-committed team member Eddie (Ryan Guzman) and the ever-reliable Hen (Aisha Hinds) fare better.

Captain Marvel’s Gemma Chan Isn’t The First Actor To Play Two Different McU Roles

While we expected a more recognizable franchise to help kick off Phase 4 of the McU next year (alongside the standalone Black Widow) film, it looks like Marvel Studios is doubling down on The Eternals, which is set to build upon the cosmic side of the series. So far, we don’t know all that much about the upcoming project – plot details are being kept tightly under wraps – but Kevin Feige himself seems excited to have the opportunity to get moviegoers hyped about a relatively unknown group of characters.

At last month’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel pulled back the curtain on the film’s talented cast, which includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Lia McHugh and Don Lee. Recently, however, we heard reports that Gemma Chan was looking to join the roster, too, and some of you might remember her appearance in Captain Marvel,

Mahershala Ali Isn’t The First Actor To Play Multiple McU Roles

One of the best surprises unveiled at Marvel’s Comic-Con panel was that Mahershala Ali is set to star as the titular vampire slayer in an upcoming Blade reboot. Once the excitement had waned a little, though, folks started to realize something: wait, how can Ali be Blade in the McU when he’s already played Cottonmouth on Luke Cage?

Followers of Marvel’s Netflix output will remember that Ali appeared on Lc‘s first season as crime boss Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes. Before fans start tearing their hair out over this apparent universe-breaking discrepancy, though, here’s an important reminder: Ali isn’t the first actor to have more than one role in the McU.

In fact, he’s not even the only actor in Luke Cage to do so. Alfre Woodard first appeared in the McU as a grieving mother who confronts Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War.

Kevin Feige Reveals That Two McU Characters Are Actually The Same Person

Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the best Marvel movies for fun supporting roles, from Donald Glover’s Aaron Davis to Hannibal Buress’ Coach Wilson to Chris Evans’ meme-able cameo. There’s also Martin Starr as Peter Parker’s teacher Mr. Harrington, who escorts Spidey and his Academic Decathlon team on their trip to Washington.

Harrington was actually Starr’s second role in the McU though, after he made a brief cameo in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk six years earlier as a student in the computer lab at Culver University who encounters Edward Norton’s Bruce Banner. The character is unnamed in the movie, but Kevin Feige’s now confirmed that this is a younger Harrington in his college days. The Marvel Studios president revealed the news in response to a fan during his first Reddit Ama yesterday.

It’s worth noting that the novelization for The Incredible Hulk previously stated

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the “9-1-1” Season 2 finale, “This Life We Choose”)

Ryan Murphy’s “9-1-1” ended its second season Monday night with a bang — a few of them, actually. The serial bomber story that started on last week’s episode of the Fox first-responder drama came to a close on tonight’s finale, “This Life We Choose,” when fans discovered the culprit was the kid whose father was sent to prison years ago for burning down their family restaurant, because Bobby (Peter Krause) and Athena (Angela Bassett) turned him in.

Luckily, the whole thing ended (mostly) Ok when Bobby talked the kid down so no one on the team got blown up. But Buck (Oliver Stark) now has a pair of crushed legs to deal with, as he got pinned under the firetruck during the whole ordeal.

Bumblebee director discusses his original plans for Megatron appearance

This past December, every Generation One fan’s childhood was brought to life on the big screen by director Travis Knight in the all-too-brief Cybertron battle sequence in Paramount PicturesTransformers spinoff Bumblebee.

The sequence featured cameo appearances from some of the franchise’s most beloved characters in their classic 80s designs. Unfortunately, the film’s ties to Michael Bay continuity meant we never got to see the most feared Transformer of all, the mighty Megatron, and Knight has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about his original plan to include the Decepticon leader.

“I had this whole thing that I boarded out myself where I had Megatron in there,” said Knight. “He comes into the scene just absolutely levelling shit, just laying waste to everything in his path like Sauron in The Lord of the Rings. We had a [new] design and a partial build and everything. I was so excited,

‘9-1-1': Jennifer Love Hewitt on That Bloody Snow Battle – and Its ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Joke

‘9-1-1': Jennifer Love Hewitt on That Bloody Snow Battle – and Its ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Joke
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Monday’s “9-1-1,” titled “Fight or Flight”)

Jennifer Love Hewitt got back into the scary movie game for Monday’s “9-1-1,” which saw Maddie come face to face with her abusive, estranged husband, Doug — who happens to be played by Hewitt’s real-life husband, Brian Hallisay.

The episode, titled “Fight or Flight,” followed the aftermath of Doug kidnapping Maddie from her apartment and stabbing Chimney (Kenneth Choi) and leaving him for dead.

Jumping between flashbacks of Doug and Maddie’s very unhappy marriage and Doug and Maddie’s very unhappy kidnapping/road trip outside of Los Angeles in the present day, the hour culminated in a bloody snow battle between the couple up in the mountains of Big Bear, Calif. Maddie is the one who emerges victorious, finally freeing herself from Doug by killing him in self-defense. With a fire poker.

Chimney (Kenneth Choi) might really be dead — and it’s all Maddie’s (Jennifer Love Hewitt) “fault.”

Or at least that’s what her abusive ex is telling her in a sneak peek of Monday’s “9-1-1,” which is exclusive to TheWrap.

In the clip from the “Fight or Flight” episode, we see a bloody-nosed Maddie riding shotgun with Doug (Brian Hallisay), who has just kidnapped her after stabbing Chimney in the gut in front of her apartment and leaving him for dead. And Doug is very much in “Look what you made me do”-mode now that he’s got his runaway wife back in his clutches.

The Performance | Since we’re entering the fifth season now of Jane the Virgin, we really shouldn’t be surprised when Rodriguez turns in a great performance. (She does it every week, really.) But in this week’s Season 5 premiere, she topped herself with an epic, seven-minute, one-take, breathtaking tightrope walk of a monologue that was hilarious, and heart-wrenching… and maybe her finest work of the series.

9-1-1: Season Two Ratings

Last year, the freshman installment of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear's 9-1-1 TV show was a bonafide hit for Fox.

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Monday’s episode of “9-1-1,” titled “Chimney Begins”)

Welp, we still don’t know if Chimney will live or die — but we do know way more about Chimney.

Tonight’s episode of “9-1-1” jumped between scenes of Kenneth Choi’s character (possibly?) bleeding to death outside Maddie’s (Jennifer Love Hewitt) apartment in the present day and an origin story that revealed how Chimney — err, Howard came to Station 118 many years ago.

TheWrap spoke with Choi about the beginnings of Chimney on Monday’s episode, aptly titled “Chimney Begins.” But before we go back to 2005, we tried to get the Fox first-responder drama’s star to tell us what’s going to happen to our boy in the future.

9-1-1's Kenneth Choi Breaks Down Those Emotional Chimney Reveals, Gets Real About His Uncertain Fate

Still, the emotional hour — which flashed back to 2005 for the story of how Chimney joined the force — was an eye-opening experience, and whether Chimney lives or dies next week, we’ll surely never think of him the same way.
