The Patient concludes the only way possible: With Domhnall Gleeson strangling Steve Carell to death. Sam would never turn himself over to authorities like the notorious Edmund Kemper (otherwise known as the Co-Ed Killer) did in 1973. Vanity Fair: What was your reaction when you found out Sam would kill Dr. Strauss at the end of the series? The letter that Dr. Strauss writes to his children—the way that was done, I found it incredibly moving, and I knew that Steve would deliver it beautifully.

Noting that Bannon would not be telling the court “I’m sorry,” defense attorney David Schoen claimed that his client believed he was doing the right thing when he flagrantly ignored the congressional subpoena. While Judge Nichols clearly disagreed, he did not sentence Bannon to the full six-month, $200,000 penalty that the government had asked for this week.

Defying Congress is not the only legal issue Bannon is facing at the moment.3 months ago Vanity Fair

Everybody has a morning show, and there are some very good morning shows that have established audiences, so I am not pretending that this is gonna be easy.

I like our chances.”Regardless of Licht’s expectations, it’s fair to say the stakes for CNN This Morning are high. Part of that is because the morning is what made Licht an industry hot shot, first with Morning Joe and later with CBS This Morning, which Licht executive-produced before entering the late-night ring with Stephen Colbert.

But it’s almost hard to wrap your head around the amount of planning, pre-planning, rehearsal, and specific execution that went into the action sequences of Top Gun: Maverick, filmed in actual fighter jets with the actors themselves switching on the six cameras mounted inside the cockpit. And the big bar scene where Maverick (Tom Cruise) reunites with Penny (Jennifer Coolidge) required intricate camera choreography and even a rewrite in the edit room that made their relationship all the more meaningful. What do you remember about that big Cinema Con screening of Top Gun: Maverick in the spring of 2022? The last time I had seen it was with a test audience, we finished the film in 2020.

Prince William will not forgive Prince Harry for spilling their closest secrets, friends of the Prince of Wales have said after Harry revealed how he and William came to physical blows over Meghan Markle in 2019. Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace have so far declined to comment on Harry’s version of the alleged altercation. In the excerpt published in the Guardian, Harry claims that a furious argument broke out between the brothers in the kitchen of his London home in 2019. The fact that Harry has written about private family moments and the specifics of intimate conversations will be concerning and upsetting for the royals.
