Patrick Stewart may be hinting at a role in CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery TV series, possibly as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

The fan favorite captain of the USS Enterprise-D on Star Trek: The Next Generation hasn't been a part of the franchise since the final TNG film, Star Trek Nemesis, released in 2002.

After Nemesis flamed out at the box office, and Star Trek: Enterprise was unceremoniously canceled in 2005, the Star Trek franchise went into hibernation until J.J. Abrams launched his blockbuster reboot in 2009, starring Chris Pine as a younger Captain James T. Kirk.

However, Star Trek was completely absent from television until Star Trek: Discovery premiered in 2017.

Based on the Mortal Instruments novels by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters starred Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, an aspiring artist who learns she’s a human-angel hybrid destined to help protect the New York City streets from all manner of creatures that go bump in the night.

Season to date, Shadowhunters is averaging barely 400,000 total weekly viewers, down sharply from Season 2 and ranking fifth ranking all current Freeform programs.

The supernatural drama will wrap things up in the spring of 2019 with a 12-episode run — aka Season 3B, titled Shadowhunters: The Final Hunt — that will include a two-hour series finale event.


Does anyone want a Jared Leto Joker standalone movie?

Jared Leto will reprise his “Suicide Squad” role as DC Comics supervillain the Joker in a standalone movie.

Variety said that Leto, 46, will both star in and serve as an executive producer of the untitled spinoff film for Warner Bros.

The trade magazine noted this will be separate from Todd Phillips’ upcoming Joker origin movie, part of a Warner Bros. division specializing in origin-story films and for which Joaquin Phoenix has been assigned to play the role.

Jack Daniel's and the impact of trade war!

The maker of Jack Daniel's says tariffs are making it difficult to plan for the future.

The company, Brown-Forman (BFA), reported strong revenue and profit growth for the fiscal year that ended in April, and expects to report more gains ahead.

But it said competition in the developed world, coupled with "potential retaliatory tariffs on American spirits" means that it's "difficult to accurately predict future results."

US bourbon is one of the products targeted by foreign governments in retaliation for the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the EU, Mexico and much of the rest of the world.

Kelly Marie Tran, who starred in Star Wars The Last Jedi recently deleted her Instagram.

She did so due to harassment that included racist remarks.

We at Nerds Drink Whiskey find this behavior inexcusable.

If you have to resort to racism, you are in the wrong, weak minded, and a pathetic excuse for a human being.

The problems with The Last Jedi are not even her fault.

We are calling all nerds to call out this toxic behavior.

Greg Berlanti Inks Mega $300+ Million New Overall Deal.

Greg Berlanti has been the producer of Titans, Doom Patrol, Supergirl, Deception, The Flash, Arrow, Riverdale, Black Lightning, and that's just this year!

No financial terms are being disclosed but sources peg the pact at more than $300 million over the next six years.


Curiosity Rover Finds Ancient 'Building Blocks for Life' on Mars.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has identified a variety of organic molecules, the carbon-based building blocks of life as we know it, in 3.5-billion-year-old Red Planet rocks, one of the papers reports.

"These results do not give us any evidence of life," stressed study lead author Jennifer Eigenbrode, a scientist at the Solar System Exploration Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

"But there is a possibility that [the organics] are from an ancient life source; we just don't know," Eigenbrode told "And even if life was never around, they [the molecules] tell us there was at least something around for organisms to eat."


HBO has officially greenlit a follow-up pilot to its acclaimed international hit Game of Thrones and it sounds just as massively ambitious as the original series.

The network has ordered a prequel drama from writer Jane Goldman and author George R.R. Martin.

The network has released an official description of the show’s story line.

Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

Since the eighth and final season of GoT is coming next year, the soonest we can see a successor series is 2020.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy stepping down this Fall?

The repercussions from The Last Jedi debacle continue it seems.

Rian Johnson created the most divisive Star Wars productions since Disney took over.

Solo did horrible at the box office.

And let's face it, The Force Awakens doesn't look as great as we first thought.

It seems the pressure is just too much and she will step down in September.

Do you think she's to blame?
