Dwanye Johnson to Play Black Adam

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has confirmed via twitter that he will be taking on the roll of DC comic book character Black Adam. The actor tweeted a picture of the character with the quote “Kneel at his feet or get crushed by his boot.”

Black Adam is an evil villain and the adversary of superhero Shazam. Variety reports that the film will be written by Darren Lemke and Black Adam will be more of an anti-hero out to clear his name. There is not much detail about the film at the moment and it is unclear whether it will be a Shazam film or a film focused on Black Adam; Either way I believe that Dwayne Johnson is the perfect fit for this roll.

Vh1 Renews Hit the Floor for a 3rd Season

I hope all of you LA Devil fans are ready! Because Hit the Floor is coming back for a third season. Can you handle the sexy?

Scoring as the #1 new scripted series of the summer, Hit the Floor is ready to bring more. More Devils, more sex, more scandal, more lies, more Derek! Let the church say Amen! The soap-opera themed drama will conclude its season 2 on Monday, August 11th where Olivia’s murderer will be revealed.

For those of you unfamiliar with the show, Hit the Floor follows the lives of a fictional basketball team and their dancers, Los Angeles Devils. On the show, we are more interested in the lies and scandal inside the arena, opposed to what is happening on the court. And with all of the drama that has transpired on the show, can you blame us?  Season 3 is set to premiere May 2015 with 10 episodes. Thank you Vh1 for heating up our summer! And if you missed Monday night’s airing, here is a juicy recap.

Sloane (Kimberly Elise) goes snooping in Olivia and Chase’s (Rick Fox) home looking for more evidence to link Oscar as Mia’s murderer. Now, Sloane is under the impression that the house is empty because, well, Olivia is dead and Chase is locked up for the murder of Olivia. But to Sloane’s surprise, Chase reveals himself in the dark, spooky house. It almost looks as if Chase will throw Sloane over the staircase, but he doesn’t. He lets her know he is running from Oscar, and then reveals to Sloane that he raped Mia and Oscar is holding that over his head.

Kyle, who is now skeptical about the microphone that Oscar has given her, goes digging for dirt. In her search, Emmy reveals to Kyle that Olivia was one of Oscar’s “girls.” This pretty much means she was prostituting for Oscar. Can’t say that I’m surprised. We already knew there was a lot of messiness going on back in the day between Sloane, Oscar and Pete Davenport.

Lionel takes a pregnancy test. She might be pregnant, but who cares? I’m over her story. Bye girl, fly girl! German hooks up with the reporter chic. And Zero over hears a private conversation between Roman and Oscar’s son regarding their alibi for the night of Olivia’s murder.

In the final moments of the episode, Jelena goes digging and comes across info that Sloane was planning on using to take down Oscar. I’m sure Jelena is going to use this to her advantage being the devil that she is. I hope it boomerangs and comes back to ruin her. I think I hate Jelena lol.

There you have it. The drama packed episode. Stay tuned for more.

Regina King proves she is more than just an award-winning actress with her upcoming gigs.

Shonda Rhimes has called on the Southland alum to direct the 16th episode of ABC’s number-one hit drama, Scandal. Now, for those of you who may think she is under qualified for this position, you will be happy to know that King has director credits under her belt in the form of hit TV series Southland and TV movie Let The Church Say Amen starring Hosea Chanchez and Naturi Naughton. Well alright Regina! I am sure the Gladiators are excited to see what you will bring to this highly anticipated season 4!

In addition to her Scandal directorial debut, King will also reprise her role on one of the most watched comedies in America, The Big Bang Theory. For all of you Big Bang Theory fans, you know King plays the university’s director of Human Resources who has an interesting and hilarious relationship with Raj. This role is a great look for King as she continues to expand her audience.

Not to be slowed down, King is also starring in a new ABC drama directed by John Ridley. American Crime is a one-hour drama that centers around a racially charged murder investigation where King will play the devoted religious sister who believes she can help her brother in a system that is against him.
