The Tool This Comedian Uses to Bring People Together

24 March 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Writing good comedy is hard. Beyond grappling with stage fright and memorizing your material, there's an entirely new challenge built around your audience. How well do you know them? Will you be able to make them laugh? On Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, New York-based actor and comedian Jordan Carlos talks about how he uses comedy to bring people together. He spends a lot of time prepping - sometimes a minute of comedy can take him days and weeks to complete - and sticks with benign topics. "If you talk about the most basic things that are universal, then we can have a great hour together," he explains to Rachel. "What I try to do is give people an escape, so I'll be like, 'let's talk about animals.'" What exactly does he say about animals? It walks the line, so you'll have to »

How This 1 Olympian Is Learning to Stay Motivated

17 March 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

It might seem easy for up-and-coming athletes to stay focused when there's so much ahead of them to achieve . . . so many contests, so many medals. But for one professional figure skater, figuring out how to remain focused after winning wasn't as easy as she thought. In a scene from Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, Gold medalist figure skater Meryl Davis opens up about what happened after she and her partner won their medal in ice dance at the Sochi Olympics. "After [my partner and I] came back from Sochi, we came back to life in Michigan and felt as though our lives were different," she begins. "I didn't have that same goal when I got up in the morning. I bought myself this butterfly necklace to symbolize for myself that it was Ok to spread my wings and it was Ok to grow." Her butterfly necklace now serves »

SXSW 2017 Interview: Writer / Director Aaron Burns Discusses the Parental Horrors of Madre

15 March 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While Madre may only be his second feature film to date, writer/director Aaron Burns is no stranger to the world of horror, or indie filmmaking for that matter. His credits include providing visual effects expertise on projects like Planet Terror, Machete, and The Green Inferno (on which he also was in charge of second unit photography and even played the character of Jonah, who was eaten by cannibals in a glorious frenzy of brutality), and he has also worked as a camera operator on Aftershock and played supporting roles in both The Stranger and Knock Knock.

While at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival, Daily Dead caught up with Burns to talk about his disturbing take on parental paranoia. The filmmaker discussed what inspired his latest project, how he wanted to tap into the true horror of Madre’s story—rather than rely on copious amounts of gore—and the importance of trusting female instincts, »

This Hollywood Actress Explains the Importance of Keeping a Journal

11 March 2017 | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

At some point in our lives, we've all turned to diaries and journals as sacred places where we can open up and unabashedly say how we feel. Diaries don't judge; rather, they're reliable outlets for us to share our most personal feelings, good or bad. On Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, Power star and former member of girl group 3Lw Naturi Naughton shows Rachel around her set but also reveals that she's been carrying around a journal for as long as she can remember. She shares an example of the types of memories she's been documenting in her journal and why she does it. "Sometimes I can't contain it and I'm like, 'I have to write this down,'" she starts, holding her journal in her hand. "I grew up obsessed with Whitney Houston and I got to meet her when I was 8 years old in Newark, »

The American Ballet Theatre Dancer You've Probably Seen on Instagram

28 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

The juxtaposition of feminine ballerinas set against the gritty NYC backdrop is a visual trend rising on Instagram (it's a beautiful blend of dance and street), which is why it's super exciting to learn about how one Manhattan-based professional ballerina got her start. In a scene from Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, dancer Courtney Lavine talks about what dedication meant to her as a kid. "I remember wanting to go outside and seeing my friends playing, and being like, 'Mom, can I skip dance just this one time?'" she shares. "[My parents] really believe in working hard, so they both supported me and pushed me to make sure I was headed on the right track." This paid off handsomely for Lavine, as she's now a member of the American Ballet Theatre. And if she looks familiar to you, it's probably because her own Instagram account is flooded with beautiful movement. »

This Cats the Musical Dancer Gets Real About Being a Ballerina

17 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You might assume that because ballerinas encapsulate all that is graceful and ethereal they're all cut from the same cloth, but we just watched a video that makes us think otherwise. In a scene from Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, Cats the Musical dancer Georgina Pazcoguin says she sees herself as more of a "rogue ballerina." After giving Rachel a backstage tour of Broadway's Cats - a musical revival that tells the story of a tribe of cats - and inviting her to dress up as a performer (seen in the image above), she shares a bit about how she identifies with her craft. "I [don't have] the quintessential ballerina personality. I'm super outgoing, I'm a very strong woman, and I just decided to embrace the differences." Pazcoguin's willingness to portray the feminine dancer is a nice reminder that feeling rogue can be a good thing. »

Comedian Aidy Bryant Talks About Going Back to the Simpler Times

13 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Remember when your life wasn't consumed with fawning over curated Instagram posts and commenting on upsetting Facebook news? Let's all let out a collective sigh. There's one person in particular who would surely like to go back to slower days: actress and Saturday Night Live cast member Aidy Bryant. On Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, actress Bryant opens up her childhood journal and shares an adorable entry from a beach vacation she took as a kid. After reading from the pages about collecting shells and peeing in a porta-potty, Bryant comes to a realization: "I've been holding onto [this journal] because it really is so simple, and I wish I could go back to the times when this was enough," she shares. "Just this as an offering was enough to spend my time." All young Aidy needed was the ocean breeze and a few seashells. »

Celebrating the movies of Keanu Reeves

8 February 2017 6:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Feb 17, 2017

Keanu Reeves, as much as any actor of his generation, has left a legacy to be proud of. We take a look back at his career.

Much like his character in the John Wick films, Keanu Reeves is a man with very little to lose.

See related  Grimm season 6 episode 6 review: Breakfast In Bed Grimm season 6 episode 5 review: The Seven Year Itch Grimm season 6 episode 4 review: El Cuegle Grimm season 6 episode 3 review: Captain, My Captain

Often maligned for his lack of range as an actor, or dismissed as merely a vaguely goofy action star, every misstep that Reeves has taken throughout his career has come from an enviable ability to consistently take risks. Despite every effort to pigeonhole him, Keanu Reeves just won’t be told what he can and can’t do.

Born in Beirut to a showgirl and a geologist, Reeves is also a rabid »

Newswire: Keanu Reeves to star in romantic thriller Siberia

1 February 2017 3:41 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Are we in the midst of a Keanu Reevesaissance? He’s been around for a while, sure, but John Wick jumpstarted his career in a particularly thrilling fashion back in 2014, and now he’s starring in clever films like Knock Knock, horrible flops like Exposed, mediocre prestige dramas like The Whole Truth, and the highly anticipated John Wick sequel. Alright, most of that isn’t very exciting, but if it’s not a Reevesaissance it’s definitely a John Wickaissance.

Whatever historians will call this era of Keanu Reeves’ career, Screen Daily is reporting that he has signed on to star in Siberia, a romantic thriller about a man trying to sell diamonds in Russia who “embarks on an affair with a local woman.” Unfortunately, his attempt to sell diamonds falls through as he tries to find his missing diamond partner, whose trail he follows to—you guessed it ...
