Grey’s Anatomy brought in five new interns for season 9. Here’s your chance to finally learn their names as well as some details about upcoming episodes. Spoilers ahead.
In an interview with TVGuide, the Grey’s newbies spill details for some upcoming episodes, including the fact that the interns will get an episode told from their point of view and that the wedding Shonda Rhimes teased before the start of the season will be Bailey’s.
“We see the interns pairing up with the doctors [and] romantic stuff happens,” Gaius Charles (Shane, who Cristina calls “Happy”) told TVGuide. Though it’s unclear whether those pairings will happen at the wedding, Charles shares that while assigned to April, his character will be removing a growth from a woman’s private parts. “It’s gross and humiliating, but some good comes out of it,” Charles said. “Shane and April form a friendship.”
As for Tina Majorino’s character, Heather, who we last saw having a one-night stand with Alex and is dubbed “Dopey” by Cristina, she’ll be stuck in the middle of a Mer-Der fight. “Meredith asks Heather to do some research on a procedure to help Derek’s hand,” Majorino said. “It blows up, and Derek ends up screaming at Meredith and Heather.”
Then there’s Camilla Luddington’s Jo who is assigned to Alex.
“[He] gets under her skin as no one else has done and calls her ‘Princess,'” the former True Blood star said.
Could her hate become love for the surly and yet lovable Karev?
Stephanie, played by Jerrika Hinton, apparently has a secret crush on one of the doctors. According to TVGuide, she’ll have trouble stringing a sentence together in front of said crush at Bailey’s wedding (Who knew Bailey was one to invite interns to her big day?). Who could her crush be? They’ll be sharing an “intimate encounter” that Hinton described as “definitely charged.”
Finally, there’s Leah, played by Tessa Ferrer. She hasn’t had as much screen time as the other Seattle Grace newbies but she’ll be getting a taste of the Queen of Mean when she’s assigned to monitor babies with Stephanie. “It gets out of control and puts our jobs in jeopardy,” Ferrer said. Like her fellow female interns, she’ll also get involved with Alex…and, like most, end up heartbroken.
Tune in for the intern-centric episode Dec. 6 and Bailey’s wedding Dec. 13.
Grey’s Anatomy 9×06 “Second Opinion” airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
In 10 years, will we look back at the 2017 Oscars and remember every detail of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling awkwardly accepting award after award for La La Land while the other nominees politely clap and try not to grit their teeth? Or will the event fade into distant memory?
Maybe we can get an answer to that question by dialling back the clock to 2007 and see just how clearly we remember the 79th Academy Awards.
How did you do? Tell us how well you remember the 79th Academy Awards in the comments!
The nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be unveiled Tuesday, January 24.
You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.
TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.
The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.
“Sources connected to production tell us eight outboard motors were used to churn the water and recreate a rushing river,” says TMZ. “The dog eventually got in the water — or was forced in — but was quickly submerged.”
At 1:28 in the below trailer you can see a scene that looks similar to what was being filmed in TMZ’s video:
Universal and their partners at Amblin told TMZ in a statement, “Fostering a safe environment and ensuring the ethical treatment of our animal actors was of the utmost importance to those involved in making this film and we will look into the circumstances surrounding this video.”
A Dog’s Purpose stars Dennis Quaid and Britt Robertson. It opens next Friday, January 27.
Update: Josh Gad, who voices a dog in the movie, issued the following statement on Instagram. He speaks highly of the film but says he finds the leaked video “disturbing.”
“While I do not know all of the details and cannot speak to the level of care and caution that went into this moment (as I was never on set for the marking of this film), I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will.”
Original story (May 2016): Heroic Hollywood, who has a good record of breaking superhero news, is the source behind the exciting development. As was previously announced, the animated Spider-Man movie will be produced by LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The duo are also set to direct the Star Wars Han Solo spinoff for Lucasfilm.
Miles Morales is the current Spider-Man in Marvel’s Ultimate Comics series. Introduced in 2011, Miles is a black-hispanic young man who, like Peter Parker, is a talented scientist and self-proclaimed nerd. However, unlike his predecessor, Morales steps into the superhero’s shoes at the surprisingly young age of 13.
Raised in Brooklyn, Miles was born into a family plagued by criminal activity. Before settling down with his wife Rio, Miles’s father Jefferson used to be crime partners with his brother Aaron (Miles’s uncle). However, where Jefferson tried to shrink away from the lifestyle, Aaron continues to embrace it — assuming the role of classic Marvel villain the Prowler. After pulling off a heist on Oscorp, Aaron unknowingly takes a genetically modified spider home with him. It is at Aaron’s house that Miles is bit by the spider and starts the transformation into Spider-Man.
Where Peter Parker relished the opportunity to become spidey, Miles is reluctant to enter the world of vigilantism. What’s more, his family’s criminal history causes him to question whether or not he can ever be a hero, or if evil is hardwired into him.
Oh, and one other cool thing about him: The guy is immortal, unlike the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man.
The rumor mill was alive with chatter about the MCU’s Spidey being the Miles Morales version last year, but obviously those reports never panned out. The Peter Parker version of Spider-Man was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, played by Tom Holland. He’s getting his own spinoff film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, next year.
Telling the Miles Morales story on screen may be just the thing the animated Spider-Man movie needs in order for it to draw people into the theaters in December 2018. We’ve had enough Peter Parker stories!
2018 will be a great year for super hero diversity: Marvel’s Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman will be released a few months earlier.
