The Legend of Korra season 2 will feature several new characters, and now the voice actors responsible for bringing them to life have been announced.

New members of the voice cast for The Legend of Korra season 2 have been revealed today on Entertainment Weekly. The announcement adds another dimension to the growing volume of information currently known about Book 2: Spirits.

The list of new cast members includes several actors well-known for their live action roles. Aubrey Plaza, of Parks and Recreation, will be heard in the role of Korra’s cousin Eska; the character’s twin brother will be voiced by Aaron Himelstein (Joan of Arcadia). Sons of Anarchy‘s Adrian LaTourelle will voice the twins’ father, Korra’s spiritual and imposing uncle Unalaq. According to Entertainment Weekly, Unalaq will not only act as Korra’s spiritual mentor, but will “seek assistance” from the young Avatar as well.

Other famous names round out both the cast and Korra’s family. James Remar of Dexter will take on the role of Korra’s father Tonraq, and House‘s Lisa Edelstein will play Aang and Katara’s “sweet-yet-impatient” eldest daughter Kya. Update: According to Bryan Konietzko, Kya’s brother Bumi will be voiced by Richard Riehle (Office Space.)

Meanwhile, John Michael Higgens will provide the voice for the charismatic shipping magnate, Varrick. Voice actress Grey DeLisle will also be a part of The Legend of Korra season 2, and is believed to be voicing a mysterious character called the Dark Spirit.

The new voices joining The Legend of Korra season 2 will add new timbre to the original cast, which includes Janet Varney as Korra, David Faustino as Mako, and JK Simmons as Aang’s youngest son Tenzin. PJ Byrne will return as Bolin, as will Seychelle Gabriel as Asami Sato.

In addition to the cast, the article also shared two new screenshots from The Legend of Korra season 2. The first photo is of the “creepy twins” Eska and Desna giving us the ultimate side-eye.

What do you think of the new information from ‘The Legend of Korra’?

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.

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.
