"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson is throwing his support behind presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for reasons other than politics.
"The issue in America, in my opinion, is much larger than presidents, prime ministers, kings," the "Duck Dynasty" patriarch said in an appearance on FOX News' "Hannity" this week. "The issue before us, in my opinion, is a spiritual one. I don't think it's a political fix. Politicians can help."
Robertson explained that he had supported Texas Senator Ted Cruz because he was a "Jesus man" and a "strict constitutionalist," saying he felt that Cruz would vet his decisions using the Bible. Although Trump was Robertson's second choice, he has said he would "enthusiastically" support him. The Duck Commander founder is believing that God will be the source of Trump's common sense. Asked if man's common sense comes from God, Robertson said of Trump, "I hope so in his case. I really do." more >>
After almost a month after it was reported that Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of DC's upcoming "Justice League" movie, speculations as to what role he will be breathing life into started floating. According to the latest report of Birth.Movies.Death., the actor will play a role related to Jason Momoa's Aquaman character.
Sources of the movie-entertainment website claim that Dafoe will be an Atlantean, the citizens of the fictional undersea kingdom led by Aquaman. However, it is not clear whether he will be good Atlantean or a bad one, despite the earlier reports that he will supposedly be one of the good guys in the "Justice League" movie. Either way, Dafoe may need to practice holding his breath underwater if the speculation that he is playing an underwater character is true.
Heroic Hollywood says, though, that there may no need for Dafoe to train for his underwater scenes. The outlet said that due to the awkward cameo scene of Momoa's Aquaman in the just-pulled-out "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," Zack Snyder, director of the said movie and the upcoming "Justice League:Part 1," are now considering other options on how to shoot underwater scenes. more >>

Good news await for all the fans of the "Harry Potter" series. They now have the chance to go beyond the film and personally see what's inside the home of the Dursleys. According to a report by Mirror UK, the Warner Bros Studio Tour London will open the door of the childhood home of Harry in Number 4 Privet Drive for fans to see the actual set that was used in the "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" movie.
Fans and tourists have only been allowed to take photos of Harry's muggle home from the outside. But with the upcoming opening, they can now experience the magic up close. The source cited that once fans get to step inside through the door of the Dursley home, they will be welcomed with hundreds of letters floating in the air just as how it was in the film. Apparently, these letters were the same ones that were used in the shooting.
Those who have watched the first film in the franchise may recall Harry getting a surge of letters from Hogwarts. And because they're magical mails, they all came flying through the fire place and front door. Fans will get to see these things in the set including the equipment that was used to make the letters flow through the letterbox. However, Harry's sleeping area, the little cupboard under the stairs, is featured elsewhere in the tour so fans will only be seeing a door to it. more >>
