In tonight’s episode of Grimm Captain Renard will be visited by a woman from his past and Sasha Roiz is spilling all the details.

Alice Evans plays Mia who has come over from Europe to visit Renard. The synopsis hints that the visit may be for both business and pleasure. Roiz reveals that Mia is one of Renard’s former lovers and is basically the female version of his character. The pair have a history together and her visit will stir up old feelings for the captain. In fact, they filmed a bedroom scene that had to be cut due to time restraints. Luckily, fans will be able to find out what was said between the two during the scene with Roiz says are very revealing. Roiz explains to TV Guide, “She’s a woman who definitely knows how to play the various factions and manipulate them. You sometimes see with Renard that there’s a respect that he has for other people who play the game. It’s always a question of loyalty, but it’s just understood that this is the way of the world and there are no hard feelings.”

However, don’t expect to see the captain settling down anytime soon. Roiz states that his character simply has too much on his plate, with the balance of the Old and New World on his shoulders. Roiz jokes, “I think at the moment, you’re not going to find him on eHarmony any time soon. That would be quite the profile, wouldn’t it?”

“You’re born into this world handicapped”

In talking more about his character, Roiz explains that the fact that Renard is a bastard shapes much of his fiber. Saying that as a bastard “you’re born into this world handicapped, certainly if you’re raised in royal circles. So there’s instantly going to be a level of self-hatred and certainly resentment toward the family.” Because of this his character moved across the world to re-establish who his is. The captain has been able to create this version of what he see’s himself as. Meanwhile the royals are all trying to one up another to get to the position of power.

The question on many fans minds is what the captain is really up to in regards to Nick. It’s clear that he has some motive for his relationship with the Grimm, while many want him gone Renard has been working to keep him safe and happy. Roiz spills the beans and reveals that Renard hopes to have the Grimm as an ally. He also says that his plan is, “increasingly pressing now that the family has gotten wind of the fact that he’s got a Grimm in his power and possession, which will ultimately lead to a major power dynamic.” We will also see how taking the potion to make himself pure will affect him in upcoming episodes. According to Roiz that potion will, “wreak havoc on the self-control” and we can expect to see him unravel.

The film adaptation of Wicked is currently in production and Stephen Schwartz revealed at Comic Con that the film will feature plenty of new songs!

Warm up those vocal pipes and get your best “Defying Gravity” cape dry cleaned, the Wicked film is gearing up for production at long last! The Broadway hit, currently in its 13th year, has had audiences clamoring for a filmed production since Idina Menzel Kristin Chenoweth brought Elphba and Glinda to life. Now, that dream is becoming a reality, but probably not with the original cast.

At the CW3PR’s 8th Annual Behind-The-Music: Crime, Death and Resurrection Panel at Comic Con, Stephen Schwartz the man behind the music of Wicked appeared to announce that the film will feature songs both old and new. The “old” of course includes songs from the stage production such as “Defying Gravity,” “Popular,” and most likely, “One Fine Day.” But it also includes songs that were written and cut from the production before its Broadway opening.

Winnie Holzman will be writing the screenplay as she also wrote the book to the stage show based on Gregory Maguire’s novel. Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) is attached to direct.

You can watch Schwartz’s announcement from the panel below!

Now its time to start some casting speculations! It is my hope that the casting director sticks with strong Broadway talent to carry the roles. The musical has enough of a following to garner a strong viewership, but it also wouldn’t hurt to throw Menzel and Chenoweth in for a cameo or two!

Wicked is expected to hit theaters in December 2019.

U! S! A! U! S! A! A new Fantastic Beasts poster debuting at San Diego Comic-Con has American pride peppered into the design, giving us a hint at the film’s plot.

The film’s official social media channels unveiled Fantastic Beasts’ SDCC poster on Friday morning, just a day before the movie hosts a panel at the conference with the cast and crew. Presumably these posters will be handed out on the show floor, and/or at the Fantastic Beasts event.

There’s a lot to unpack in this poster, which features Newt and a brightly lit “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” sign.

Newt is looking over his shoulder in the middle, holding a wand in one hand and a suitcase (with a beast trying to get out!) in the other. Supporting characters Graves, Jacob, Queenie, and Tina appear in the wings. Also here: Our very first looks at two female characters. We believe the one in the bottom left is Mary Lou, played by Samantha Morton. The guy on the right is Credence played by Ezra Miller.

So what’s with the American flags? They’re not only to remind fans that the movie is set in New York — We believe they’re teasing an election of some sort. The last Fantastic Beasts trailer briefly depicted a political event (See a screenshot below). We’re guessing an election will be taking place over the course of the movie with possible ramifications for the well-being of the North American Wizarding World.

Fantastic Beasts opens this November. Return to Hypable on Saturday to check out our coverage of everything that happens during the movie’s panel!

Have a round, or two, with Lin-Manuel Miranda when he steps in to tell the story of Alexander Hamilton on Drunk History.

Comedy Central is keeping Lin-Manuel Miranda connected to Hamilton for a little while longer by setting the scribe up on the next season of Drunk History to spin another verse about the founding father. The show will concentrate on the rivalry between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton duel that resulted in SPOILER Hamilton’s death.

Hamilton was the first subject that the series took on in season one. With the rising success of the Broadway hit, fans clamored for Lin-Manuel Miranda to give Alexander Hamilton a reprise on the series.

Miranda is not throwing away his shot at telling another version of Hamilton’s decision to throw away his on the shores of New Jersey in 1804. Even though Miranda stepped away from the show on July 9, we expect to see him sticking close to the production for quite a while, especially as the show begins performances across the nation.

Miranda was not the only guest announced for Drunk History‘s fourth season. Joining him will be Aubrey Plaza, Ben Folds, Billie Joe Armstrong, Busy Phillips, Dave Grohl, Ed Helms, Elizabeth Olsen, Josh Charles, Mae Whitman, Michael Cera, Rachel Bilson, and Tony Hale, to name a few.

Raise a glass!
