  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s Nxt review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and Joaquin Phoenix is a f—— weirdo. I still like him, though. Lee Michaels asked Andrew Gold if he knew what he meant, but Gold just told him that he was a lonely boy like David Soul, who just wants to you to not give up on us baby. We’ve got more Nxt invasion stuff to get to, so let’s pretend that this isn’t just Ring Of Honor painted gold and black and get ready to rock.

Kip Niven Dies: ‘Magnum Force’ Rogue Cop & Actor In ‘Alice’, ‘The Waltons’ & Sensurround Films Was 73
Kip Niven, a veteran character actor whose career ranged from early-’70s TV and the first two Sensurround films to regional theater and starring in 2014’s Jayhawkers, has died. He was 73. Local media outlets in his native Kansas City, Mo, said Niven died Monday of a heart attack.

Born on May 27, 1945, he got his start with guest roles in such 1970s TV dramas as Night Gallery, Escape and Emergency! before landing a key role in the first Dirty Harry sequel. In 1973’s Magnum Force, Niven played “Red” Astrachan, one of the vigilante rookie cops who terrorize San Francisco’s underworld — and eventually Clint Eastwood, who eventually gets his revenge. Astrachan’s comrades were played by future stars Robert Urich, Tim Matheson and David Soul.

After that, Niven would appear in dozens of TV shows and more than a dozen features including Earthquake (1974) and Midway (1976), the first two movies released in

Stephen King-Inspired Movies and Shows to Watch With Hulu’s ‘Castle Rock’
It’s Halloween in July with the launch of Hulu’s buzzy new Stephen King inspired series “Castle Rock.”

But in case that show alone isn’t enough to satisfy TV watchers’ thirst for summertime fear, there are plenty of other creepy King adaptations that are worth a late night viewing — and many even serve as the sources for countless easter eggs hidden in the new horror series.

Here’s a sampling of King-based movies and TV shows made throughout the years.

James Gunn Discusses His Starsky And Hutch Series and Reveals it Will Be a Continuation of the Original Series

When I hear the words remake or reboot, I think “not as good as the original”. In 99% of the cases, this is true. There are anomalies like The Departed that are far superior to the original, but like I said, it is a rare case. Now, in the case of James Gunn, the thought of a reboot is rather interesting.

Recently it was announced that Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) would be taking on the rebooting of the 1970’s buddy cop TV show Starsky and Hutch. The series will be on Amazon and Gunn himself will be directing the pilot.

James Gunn went to Facebook to announce not only his involvement in the project but to get us as pumped as he is as well. This is what he had to say:

‘Starsky & Hutch’Reboot is Picked up by Amazon

Remember “Starsky & Hutch”, that highly entertaining television buddy cop show from the 70s that lasted for 93 episodes? It entertained many of us for endless weeknights from 1974 to 1979 on ABC and starred David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser, as well as one really hot car, namely a two-door Ford Gran Torino. The mismatched cop duo was resurrected in the 2004 theatrical release of the same name directed by Todd Phillips with Ben Stiller playing David Starsky, the high-strung workaholic. Owen Wilson played Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson, who’s a laid-back ladies’ man. The two were detectives patrolling the Bay

So when Neal Mortiz asked me if I wanted to be a part of an all new Starsky & Hutch on TV, I was instantly intrigued. I teamed up with the two writers I trusted most in the world to work with us, my brother Brian Gunn and my cousin
