Newcomer and Hottie David Corenswet Steals the Show in The Politician's Latest Trailer

Netflix's The Politician is set to drop on Sept. 27, and we're already champing at the bit to see more of this dark comedy starring Ben Platt. In the latest trailer, though, we caught a glimpse of another character who has us highly intrigued: David Corenswet as River. We haven't been able to glean much about this character, except that he shares a sweet kiss with Payton (Platt) and tells him he's going to change the world while wiping away his tears.

Not sure about the rest of you, but I think River is going to be my favorite character on this show, not to mention this might just be Corenswet's big break. He is very much a newcomer to Hollywood and credits his part in Affairs of State as his first big role out of school. Funny enough, it's also a political piece, just like The Politician, and he

‘The Politician’ Trailer: Ben Platt and Gwyneth Paltrow Fight Deadly Political Animals on Netflix
Political fights are no stranger to the halls of high school, but Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix series is looking to take that escalating conflict a few bloody steps further with his new series “The Politician.”

“Dear Even Hansen” breakout Ben Platt tackles his first major series role as Payton Hobart, a fatally ambitious high school student whose plans to rule the student body are just a stepping stone on the way to ruling the country. Along the way, he works as an Asb fixer of sorts, sniffing out problematic running mates and trying to crush his rivals at every turn.

Along the way, he’ll have to contend not only with students, but the adults in their orbit, namely Rose (Jessica Lange). It appears as if what begins as a simple race to sway the school quickly turns into a literal bloody battle to control hearts and minds. It

Ryan Murphy’s ‘The Politician’ Trailer: It’s Like ‘Election’ – But With Ben Platt and Possibly Murder (Video)
Step aside Tracy Flick, there’s a new ruthless student-body presidential candidate in town: Payton Hobart, “an impossibly driven young man who dreams of being the president” and the character at the center of Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix series “The Politician.”

Except the show’s trailer, which dropped Monday, reveals that Payton (Ben Platt), unlike Reese Witherspoon’s unlikable protagonist from the 1999 film “Election,” is actually pretty charming — but also possibly a murderer?

Zombieland Double Tap Retro Website Resurrects Tom from Myspace

  • MovieWeb
The latest website for Zombieland Double Tap is a hilarious parody of an old MySpace account. It's hard to believe, but there were a lot of people still using MySpace as their social media platform of choice back in 2009 when the first Zombieland hit theaters and became an unexpected hit. Facebook didn't even start making money until 2009 and was still in its infancy as far as the masses catching on at the time. The marketing for Zombieland Double Tap is certainly picking up where the first one left off.

The Zombieland Double Tap MySpace page boasts a custom layout with a special "Z" cursor and even includes the top eight friends feature, which of course includes Tom. The parody site is called "Zomspace: a place for survivors" and it is sure to bring back some decade-old memories of the earlier days of social media, before everybody and their parents were
