It’s August and Anderson and I discussed a slew of movies. My big recommendations for this month are Columbus and In This Corner of the World. Anderson’s amped to see Logan Lucky and Detroit. The full episode, as well as a few state of the state re: CinemAddicts is found below!!
I’ve already used the pun in this post’s title, so no more puns regarding Parisa Fitz-Henley who plays a witch on the new NBC series Midnight, Texas. Based on a series of books by True Bloodscribe Charlaine Harris, the show is off to a solid start thanks to solid writing and a diverse set of characters. To hear Fitz-Henley discuss Wicca and her character Fiji, read below!
Before she was an Oscar (“Dreamgirls”) and Grammy winning (for her self-titled debut album and “The Color Purple”), Jennifer Hudson was a contestant on “American Idol.” Seeing that type of competition from both sides should put her in good stead as a new coach for Season 13 of “The Voice.”

Salma Hayek can currently be seen with Eugenio Derbez in the Ken Marino directed comedy “How To Be A Latin Lover.” The movie, which debuted at #2 at the box office, displayed an easygoing chemistry between Hayek and Eugenio Derbez (they play siblings in the film). During the HTBAL interviews I asked the actress, who’ll next be seen in the highly anticipated “Beatriz at Dinner,” about the key ingredient behind a successful collaboration.
