A figure skater known for her elegant flexibility — her coach once said she was incapable of putting her body into an ugly position — Cohen says her life as an Olympian was “so clear.”

“I’d wake up every morning with a plan for the day, and the year, and the next four years,” the 33-year-old tells People. “I was on this train and everything else blurred on the side.”

Remote Controlled: ‘La to Vegas’ Star Dylan McDermott on Dermot Mulroney, That Mustache and ‘American Horror Story’

Welcome to “Remote Controlled,” a podcast from Variety featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.

In this week’s episode, Variety’s executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum talks with Dylan McDermott about his first comedy series role, Fox’s “La to Vegas.”

He chose the role, he says, because he wanted to shake up his career. “As an actor, I was always keenly aware that you have these little pockets of time where things are going well, you have your heyday, and then that drops off,” he says. “Being an actor is like being a walking milk carton. We all have our expiration dates.”

He says the best time he ever had as an actor was doing comedy — hosting “Saturday Night Live,” making “The Campaign” with Will Ferrell. “Laugh all day long,” he says. “That’s what I want.”

So he told his agents he wanted to read

10 Die Hard Facts You Never Knew

10 Die Hard Facts You Never Knew
Yippee Ki-Yay, Christmas movie fans! Die Hard might just be the greatest action film ever made. It's endlessly quotable, made a huge movie star out of Bruce Willis, features one of the penultimate performances from the late Alan Rickman, and launched not only a franchise, but a slew of imitators, as well. Welcome to the party, pal! Here we look at 10 things you never knew about Die Hard.

Frank Sinatra could have been John McClane.

Ol' Blue Eyes had first dibs on the role that made Bruce Willis an action star. Die Hard is based on the 1979 crime novel Nothing Lasts Forever, which was a sequel to the 1966 book The Detective.

Of course, Sinatra was already 73 by then, and said no.

Jim Henson Company to Produce S. Craig Zahler’s ‘Hug Chickpenny’
The Jim Henson Company is coming on board to produce S. Craig Zahler’s movie adaptation of the orphan story “Hug Chickpenny: The Panegyric of an Anomalous Child.”

The designers at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop will work with Zahler to create and build the animatronic puppet versions of the titular character, Hug. Zahler will also direct and produce along with Dallas Sonnier of Cinestate.

The story, described as a gothic Dickensian take on “The Elephant Man,” centers on a hopeful, physically asymmetrical boy who faces challenges in an orphanage and the weird and dangerous world outside. The white-haired baby inspires both ire and pity at the orphanage, until the day that an elderly eccentric adopts him as a pet.

Zahler is the writer-director of “Bone Tomahawk” and “Brawl in Cell Block 99.” The latter starred Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, and Don Johnson and premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2017. His police thriller, “Dragged Across
