Betty’s Long-Lost Brother Appears in Riverdale's Ominous Midseason Trailer

Although Riverdale's midseason finale ended more with a disappointing whimper than the Black Hood bang we were expecting, we're still excited to see where the back half of season two takes us when it returns in 2018. In addition to hopefully finding out who the Real murderer is (we refuse to believe it's Mr. Svenson), the trailer for the remaining episodes hints at a few more complications for our favorite citizens of Riverdale. Jughead runs into some issues while re-entering Riverdale High, and Alice Cooper has an emotional reunion with her long-lost son, Chic. As you might recall from previous episodes, Alice got pregnant with Betty's older brother when she was still in high school and was basically forced to give him up for adoption. We'll just have to wait until Riverdal returns on Jan. 17 to find out exactly how Alice and Chic's tense interaction goes down.

Alice Cooper Cast as King Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar

Alice Cooper Cast as King Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar
Alice Cooper, who was born Vincent Damon Furnier in 1948, is best known as being an American actor, songwriter and singer, who has a career that spans more than five decades. His distinctive raspy voice and high-drama stage show featuring dueling swords, deadly snakes, electric chairs and more have earned him the name and reputation of being “The Godfather of Shock Rock.” Now, he is taking on a somewhat different role. Many believe his many years of onstage theatrics are going to help his performance be superior while appearing in the live theatrical production on NBC of “Jesus Christ Superstar!”

James Franco Hosts SNL: The Least Bad Bits From an Abysmal Night — Watch

James Franco Hosts SNL: The Least Bad Bits From an Abysmal Night — Watch
Despite being overstuffed with Christmas sketches, there were few gifts to be found during this weekend’s Saturday Night Live.

James Franco returned to Studio 8H to promote The Disaster Artist, a movie based on The Room, one of the dumbest films ever made. Ironic, since so much of his latest hosting stint consisted of aggressively dumb material.

The evening got off to a rough start with the cold open, which featured a parade of kids struggling with cue cards and asking Kenan Thompson’s Mall Santa about Sen. Al Franken, Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore and ousted Today show host Matt Lauer.

‘I, Tonya’ Filmmakers Rejected Indie Rock Darling Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Tonya Harding’ Song

‘I, Tonya’ Filmmakers Rejected Indie Rock Darling Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Tonya Harding’ Song
Indie-rock hero Sufjan Stevens is effectively running against himself in the Oscars’ best original song category, with two prominently featured and equally respected tunes in “Call Me By Your Name” (“Mystery of Love,” heard mid-film, and “Visions of Gideon,” over the end credits). But if he’d had his way, he might have had three songs in contention.

When Stevens announced this week that he was issuing a new single, “Tonya Harding,” almost simultaneous with the release of the film “I, Tonya,” plenty of fans figured the song was partnered with the movie. That was his intent, actually, at one point, even though he’d wanted to write an ode to the figure skater since 1991. “It’s not at all related to the new biopic,” he wrote on his website, before parenthetically adding, “I sent it to the music supervisors but they couldn’t find a way to use it.”
