Newswire: New Gilmore Girls preview photos mostly focus on Luke being Luke

Netflix has given us a few fleeting glimpses at its Gilmore Girls revival already, including a quick teaser and a series of preview images, but those mostly focused on Lorelai and Rory. Sure, they’re the Gilmore girls of the title and the show is all about them, but the original series always made sure to occasionally focus on the wacky characters that the Gilmore girls encountered in their daily lives. Thankfully, this new batch of preview images primarily focus on one of those wacky characters, even if he is the least wacky of the whole bunch.

We’re talking about Luke Danes, the cellphone-hating, hat-wearing diner man who appears in these photos doing the two things he loves the most: standing while wearing a plaid shirt and having an intense conversation with Milo Ventimiglia’s Jess Mariano. Oh yeah, Jess is also in one of these photos, just in …

Newswire: It’s Jon Bernthal’s turn to be punished in Stingray

Jon Bernthal bowled over viewers with his portrayal of Frank Castle in Netflix’s Daredevil, so much so that he’ll become The Punisher in a spin-off series. Earlier this year, the Walking Dead alum has said that we haven’t seen the Punisher really get down to brass tacks, i.e.., shell casings. Castle will engage in much more unsanctioned adjudicating once he’s inhabiting his own corner of Hell’s Kitchen. But that brand of street justice is precisely what’s going to get Bernthal into trouble in his next film role.

Empire Magazine reports that Bernthal will lead the crime-thriller Stingray, from writer-director Anthony Hayes (The Slap). Bernthal’s character will get caught up in a “blood feud” with a “notorious criminal” after he kills that individual’s brother. His punishment for the slip-up (or execution): He’ll have to off one of his own family members …
