Rip Torn, Emmy-Winning Larry Sanders Show Actor, Dead at 88

Rip Torn, Emmy-Winning Larry Sanders Show Actor, Dead at 88
Veteran actor Rip Torn, arguably best known for his role as irascible, foul-mouthed Artie on HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show, died Tuesday at his home in Connecticut. He was 88.

Torn earned an Emmy in 1996 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Larry Sanders‘ uproariously devious Artie. He later appeared in seven episodes of NBC’s 30 Rock as General Electric’s faux CEO Don Geiss (a gig that netted him an Emmy nod for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.) Additional TV credits included Columbo, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Will & Grace.

Phoenix Fan Fusion Special Guest Highlights

We are only one week away from Phoenix Fan Fusion, formerly known as Phoenix Comic Con, and the guests and schedules are really coming together to make it an awesome year! There are pages and pages of special guests listed on the Phoenix Fan Fusion website, but I have highlighted my favorite guests below that I’ll be hoping to see!

First off, we’ve got Paul Reubens, that’s right, Pee-wee Herman himself will be in attendance. The guy who has played Pee-wee for over the last 30 years, as well as voiced major characters like Max in Flight of the Navigator, and Rx-24 in the old Star Tours ride at Disney parks has been in so many things we never even knew besides the things we love him for. I’m partial to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, but he was also in all the other Pee-wee projects, as well as Batman Returns,

Frank Adonis Dies: ‘Goodfellas’ & ‘Raging Bull’ Actor Was 83

Frank Adonis Dies: ‘Goodfellas’ & ‘Raging Bull’ Actor Was 83
Frank Adonis, who appeared in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, Raging Bull and Casino along with tough-guy roles in dozens of other films and TV shows, has died. He was 83. His wife told TMZ that he died Wednesday night in Las Vegas after a long illness and had been on a ventilator.

Born Frank Scioscia on October 27, 1935, in Brooklyn, he made his film debut with an uncredited role in 1971’s The French Connection. Adonis had small roles in such films as Lucky Lucianoi, The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight and Shaft’s Big Score! during that decade before landing a role in Raging Bull, Scorsese’s seminal 1980 boxing biopic starring Robert De Niro. He would go on to appear in the Oscar-winning filmmaker’s mobbed-up pics Goodfellas (1990) — his Anthony Stabile (above left) was present for the classic, cringe-inducing “funny like a clown?” scene — and Casino (1995).

Vincent D'Onofrio Goes From Hitman To Crime Boss In New TV Series 'Godfather Of Harlem'

Playing men of power is nothing new for Vincent D'Onofrio, who continues to portray Wilson Fisk (aka the Kingpin) on the Marvel Netflix superhero series Daredevil, and the Wizard of Oz himself in the short-lived, dramatic NBC fantasy show Emerald City. Well, the actor is ready to take on another such role — though grounded considerably more than the others in reality — this time starring opposite Forest Whitaker on the Epix television true crime series Godfather of Harlem. Given a straight to series order by the network, the show sees Vincent as Vincent "Chin" Gigante, a former boxer who few take seriously... but should. He appears dimwitted, but his mind is always working — to the point where he feigns insanity to avoid prosecution, and the series will chart his rise in the Genovese crime family as a hitman to, ultimately, boss of the family.

Vincent D’Onofrio Consults Twitter Before Accepting Racist Role in TV Drama, Says Our National Morality ‘Is in Shreds’
As “BlacKkKlansman” hit theaters this weekend, Emmy nominee Vincent D’Onofrio found himself in a position familiar to that film’s co-star, Topher Grace. In Spike Lee’s Cannes prizewinner, Grace portrays longtime white supremacist David Duke, who made headlines at last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. On Saturday, D’Onofrio asked his 180,000 Twitter followers for feedback on whether he should accept a role in an unannounced television show that would task him with playing an “irredeemable racist” based on a real person:

I am going to ask a question to everyone that cares to answer it. I have an opinion which I will not reveal. Is Now the right time (considering the world in which live right now) for me to play a real to life characte who is irredeemable racist in a dramatic series?

Image Source: Netflix

The first season of 13 Reasons Why captured our attention for a number of reasons - the gripping story, the unflinching approach to teen suicide, the dramatic twists - but none of it would be as successful if it wasn't for the talented young cast. One of the standout performances in both season one and two comes from Christian Navarro, who plays the wise, leather-jacket-clad Tony.

While season one makes his character much more mysterious, season two digs in to his character. We get to watch Tony struggling with some serious inner turmoil, falling in love, and helping Clay make sense of the aftermath of Hannah's death. Wondering where you've seen him before?

Navarro has made guest appearances on a number of TV dramas like Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Blue Bloods, The Affair, and Rosewood, but he's only had one recurring role before breaking out on 13 Reasons Why.
