'Suits' Recap And Review: 'God's Green Earth' - The Ex-Girlfrien
Four episodes remain in the fifth season of Suits, and so it's time to start getting into the trenches of Mike Ross's fraud case. Unfortunately for Harvey Specter, that means dealing with his ex-girlfriend Dana Scott - because you didn't think Abigail Spencer was coming back for just a one-scene cameo, did you?

Mike and Harvey are back in court when Mike spots someone he took the LSATs with standing next to Anita Gibbs at the prosecutor's table. That makes him squirm, as does the fact that Anita hands him a subpoena for Rachel. As if we didn't all see that one coming. Naturally, this makes...

Johnny Depp Plays Donald Trump In Latest 'Funny Or Die' Spoof
Donald Trump might be America's most popular target for humor right now, so it's not surprising that website Funny or Die has picked the Republican presidential candidate as the subject of their latest fake movie trailer.

Johnny Depp plays Trump in a mock preview for Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie, which also features appearances from Alfred Molina (Angie Tribeca), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies), Patton Oswalt, and...Alf?

Done in the cheesy style of every terrible movie ever, The Art of the Deal: The Movie is amusingly over the top. We've included ...

Are 'The Good Wife' Spinoff Rumors For Real?

2/10/2016 9:12am EST
'The Good Wife' Spinoff Rumors Are Still Just Rumors
The Good Wife's impending exit was announced on Sunday and by Monday, rumors of a possible spin-off series had already begun.

Per TVLine, reporters on a conference call asked series creators Robert and Michelle King if they'd consider a spin-off from the critically acclaimed legal drama, to which Michelle replied, "At this point, nothing's off the table...Sure, maybe, we're not saying no to anything."

Which doesn't mean there's a spin-off in the works. Or that the Kings have even talked about one with CBS (or that they haven't). Just that they'd be open to the idea of a new offshoot from ...

It's the first sequel he's said yes to since 2012's Men in Black 3. Smith also revealed that he passed on app...

There will be two losers in the episode, both of whom will have to endure a helicopter ride they'd rather forget.
