"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" Theory Proposes 'Dark Rey' Has a Secret Identity

A few weeks ago at Disney's fan convention D23, there was some crazy exciting new footage that was shared for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. That footage revealed a shocking drastic dark turn of a character. That character was Daisy Ridley’s Rey. With Rey’s Force-connection with Kylo Ren set to play an even larger role in the Skywalker finale, “Dark Rey” might also share in that connection, though in a completely different way.

The only information we have about the Knights of Ren, an elusive group that first appeared in Rey’s vision during The Force Awakens, is that they report to Kylo. But, what if we’ve already met one of their members? An intriguing new theory proposes that Dark Rey’s secret identity is actually one of the Knights of Ren.

Eddie Murphy Planning Return To Stand-Up Comedy In 2020

You can go home again. Eddie Murphy has already announced he’s returning as a host to Saturday Night Live in its upcoming season after a long hiatus. Now, he’s hinting that another homecoming of sorts is in the works, as he said on a podcast that he would be mounting a stand-up tour in 2020.

Murphy has been rumored to be talking with Netflix about a series of stand-up specials. His past efforts, including 1983’s Delirious and 1987’s Raw, were enormously popular, and he commanded arena-level crowds before he went on to bigger and better things in films.

Now, with a new Netflix movie, Dolemite Is My Name, and his highly anticipated return to a beloved character in the forthcoming Coming To America 2, the time may be right for him to remind the world of his stand-up skills.

"Watchmen" Gets Official Late October Debut Date From HBO

We knew that Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic was coming to HBO in October. Now we know exactly when the Regina King-starrer will debut.

October 20 at 9 PM ET – and the clock is ticking.

Directed by Nicole Kassell from a script by Leftovers alum Lindelof, the pilot for this sequel of sorts to the borderline dystopia depicted in the award-winning 1980s comic series finds an America ruled by long-serving President Robert Redford. Its an alternative 2019 America where the best intentions have seen technology curtailed, the police are now hidden by masks like the outlawed superheroes, and white supremacy has picked up the legacy of the infamous Rorschach.

The series also stars Don Johnson as the Tulsa police chief, Jeremy Irons as an aged and seemingly dispirited Ozymandias, and Jean Smart as a past Silk Spectre. The heavily radiated Doctor Manhattan is in there too, but is unclear to what extent so far.

Mac Miller's Alleged Drug Dealer Arrested & Charged In Connection To His Death

Mac Miller died almost a year ago this month. His death sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community & beyond. Just shy of the 1 year mark, Miller’s alleged Hollywood Hills drug dealer has been arrested & charged in connection with his death.

According to NBC, prosecutors charged 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit on September 4, accusing him of providing Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.

In a new 42-page criminal complaint out of the Central District of California, prosecutors claim Miller had asked Pettit for “percs,” the abbreviated name for the powerful narcotic pain killer percocet.

Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City home on September 7, 2018. Although the manner of death was initially certified as an accident, it was later determined Miller died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.

During the investigation into his death, authorities recovered a plastic bag containing pills allegedly supplied by a prostitute and a madam. Two days earlier, Pettit delivered to Miller counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax.

Instagram DMs between Pettit and other people who were reacting to Miller’s death were included in the criminal complaint.
