Performer of the Week: Gillian Anderson
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 »

‘Silicon Valley’s’ Haley Joel Osment on His Career Pivot, TJ Miller’s ‘Sad’ Exit
Haley Joel Osment plays a fun-loving character on “Silicon Valley” — and the actor himself is having a pretty good time these days, too.

But it’s actually 50 Cent who has the crush.
