Are you clever? Witty? Creative? Hypable is seeking a small and entertaining group of new writers to take on a unique and fun niche of content.

UPDATE: This application has now closed.

About

We’re looking for creative and witty fans who can write up to three original pieces of content a week.

These articles can be styled in any suitable format (such as lists, galleries, etc) with the idea being that Hypable can offer more than just news, but an entertaining and diverse catalog of content. They must be relevant and timely (perhaps based on a recent news story).

Examples of what kind of articles you’ll be asked to write:

– The five worst things about movie theaters.
– Six books to read while waiting for J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy.
– How to: Jump into a new fandom like a pro.
– Five scenes we wish actually made it into the Harry Potter films.
– The nine best Doctor Who costumes we’ve ever seen.

Expectations

We will expect each writer to…

– Have a great sense of humor.
– Have a strong command of the English language.
– Use images to make the articles visually interesting.
– Write at least two articles a week (for release on particular days).
– Use their creativity to come up with original, entertaining, and timely content.
– Work quickly and efficiently.
– Regularly use recent news stories as inspiration.
– Have a strong knowledge of sites that can help you find images and content for the articles you’re writing.
– Be willing to accept our ideas and run with them.
– Be able to write out great explanations for each item in your list (Using The Casual Vacancy example above: We’d need to know WHY each of those books would be great to read while waiting).

How to Apply

In an e-mail to writers@hypable.com…

– Provide us your name, age, and location.
– Tell us why you have time to write three of these types of articles a week.
– Tell us which fandoms you are a big fan of and would like to write content about (the more the better)!
Come up with your own idea for a viral list/article (or use the examples above), write it out fully, and submit it with your application! If it’s a post that relies heavily on images, do make sure you include the images as well. You can create it in a Google Doc if you can’t put it in an e-mail – just be sure to share the Google Doc with writers@hypable.com.

Please note that the above positions are volunteer work. However, your work will be seen by tens of thousands of people across the globe!

Don’t tell the existing Hypable writers, but this position on the site will probably be the most fun. It’s all about exploring clever ideas in your fandoms! Thanks to all who apply – you will hear back within a week if accepted.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
