The Performer | Gillian Anderson

The Show | American Gods

The Episode | “Come to Jesus“ (June 18)

The Performance | Is there anything that livens up an American Gods scene more than the captivating, off-kilter addition of Gillian Anderson’s Media? We think not, especially given the X-Files alum’s highly entertaining performance in Sunday’s Season 1 finale.

When Media showed up as Judy Garland in her Easter Parade attire, all doe-eyed and delicate, Anderson was the picture of turn-of-the-century femininity. And we marveled, in part because she so thoroughly wrapped the New God in this old-school persona and in part because Anderson-as-Media-as-Garland »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there.

She has never settled for The Girlfriend or romantic lead, although she made a memorable Mary Jane Watson in the “Spider-Man” franchise. “Looking back, I’m proud of the choices that I’ve made,” she said. “A »

23 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Haley Joel Osment plays a fun-loving character on “Silicon Valley” — and the actor himself is having a pretty good time these days, too. The former child star, now 29, is still perhaps best known for early-career roles in “The Sixth Sense” and “A.I.” But he’s quickly earning buzz for his turn as positive-to-a-fault VR expert Keenan Feldspar on Season 4 of the HBO ensemble comedy. “I had a blast,” the actor told The Wrap about shooting his part on “Silicon Valley.” Also Read: 'Silicon Valley' Star Thomas Middleditch on TJ Miller's Exit: 'Lots of Things Could Have Been Done »

50 Cent has had some high-profile relationships, including romances with comedian Chelsea Handler and actress Vivica A. Fox. And the 41-year-old single rapper now seems to have his eyes set on Oscar winner Helen Mirren.

One shot — which showed Mirren in a stunning white dress, sneaking a peek at a tuxedo-clad 50 Cent — was printed in a newspaper, with a caption suggesting Mirren was a fan of the “dapper rapper.”
