The latest information on Mad Men season 6 says that Betty will have a much larger role this upcoming season. Also, descriptions of new characters have been given.

Last season, January Jones’ character Betty Francis appeared far less on screen than in any previous season due to her pregnancy. Jones has had the baby and her role will return to its normal prominence.

We know what you were thinking (because let’s face it, we were thinking it too). When you heard that Betty would be having a bigger role, your mind immediately went to the wildly popular “Fat Betty” story-arc from season 5. No, Betty Francis’ season 6 role will be much bigger in screen time and not so much in physical size.

Don’t take this to mean that we think the whole “Fat Betty” story-arc is over; we don’t think that’s the case. Matthew Weiner and the Mad Men writers are far too good to say, “Well, January isn’t pregnant anymore, so ‘Fat Betty’ doesn’t need to exist anymore. Betty no longer has weight issues.” No, we are confident that won’t happen.

And that’s okay. We got some good laughs out of “Fat Betty,” mainly because there isn’t a character that we’d have wished their worst nightmare on more. We despise Betty, and as someone who obviously holds her looks above most other things, we couldn’t be more happy with her pain.

Plus, we got some really funny memes out of this:

The other new information that we’ve received is that Mad Men will be bringing new employees into the world of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, well whatever it’s going to be called now (please be Sterling Cooper Draper Holloway). Mad Men is looking to cast some characters in their 20s and 30s described as “attractive,” “cute,” “flirtatious,” “sweet” and “curvy.” They always need more lady-candy to harass. They’ll also be casting two British businessmen types in their 50s. We wouldn’t be surprised if these were Jaguar executives or had some relation to the now deceased Lane Pryce, be it family or friends.

Thanks, TV Line.

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.

‘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.
