Riverdale season 4 cast: Who plays Mr Sowerberry? Who is Lane Edwards?

Riverdale’s Mob boss and Veronica (Camila Mendes)’s dad Hiram Lodge (played by Mark Consuelos) is always up to no good. Whether he’s getting a prison to produce his drugs for the town’s teens or chasing down his daughter’s beloved sweetheart Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), when there’s something dodgy going on in Riverdale, most people would bet money on him being involved. So to keep his empire growing and to ensure he stays out of prison, Hiram needs a good attorney – who comes in the shape of Mr Sowerberry.

Who is Mr Sowerberry in Riverdale?

Paul Sowerberry is played by Lane Edwards in Riverdale season 4.

Lane has previously appeared in Smallville, Falling Skies, Supernatural, Heartbeat, The Good Doctor and Redemption.

Mr Sowerberry is the attorney of Hiram Lodge, who ironically ended up incarcerated in his own prison in season 3.

Veronica, with the help of boyfriend Archie, came up with a plan to take down her dad and managed to get him arrested by Sheriff FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich).

Despite being thrown in the Lodge Detention Centre for his misdeeds, Hiram was already scheming and planning his revenge against his enemies.

Hiram is going to be taking aim at his family including his now estranged wife Hermione Lodge (Marisol Nichols) after she went against his plans to privatise Riverdale and essentially run the town himself.

Season three was definitely a turning point in the marriage between Hiram and Hermione, with the latter only sticking with the mafia kingpin out of fear.

Both of them were also having affairs – Hermoine was seeing Minetta while Hiram was keeping his mistress Ms Mulwray (Kelly Ripa) at the Five Seasons.

Consuelos and Ripa are actually married in real life, helping to make their on-screen romance even more realistic.

At the end of season three, Hiram was told by one of the guards of Hermoine’s arrest after evidence had been planted to take her down.

He also hinted he would be seeking revenge on his daughter since she helped to put him in prison.

Even though Hiram is imprisoned, he can pull strings from behind the scenes so could he have something to do with the mystery surrounding Jughead following the season four trailer?

Hiram is expected to cause trouble throughout series from behind bars so his trusted attorney is bound to be at hand to help him out.

Riverdale season 4 continues on Netflix UK every Thursday.

George Michael’s music companies rocket in value by almost £3million since 2016 death – The Sun

GEORGE Michael’s music companies have rocketed in value by almost £3 million in the three years since the star’s tragic death.

The money comes from royalties for the late singer’s songs, showing his tracks remain hugely popular with fans.

And their soaring profits come although there has been no attempt to ‘cash in’ on his death – with only a re-issue of the album Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1 in 2017.

One of George’s companies – Big Geoff Overseas Limited – saw its value rise by £1.3 million from £700,000 to £2 million in 2018.

Wham Music Limited – which was controlled outright by Careless Whisper singer George – added an extra £1 million to its value, rising from £500,000 to £1.5 million.

And his firm Robobuild Limited went up by just under £600,000 rising from £565,000 to £1.1 million.

And more cash is likely to poor into the companies later this year when a soundtrack to a new film made by Emma Thompson and inspired by the Wham! song Last Christmas is released.

The companies formed part of George’s £98 million will which was revealed earlier this year, with most of the money will ultimately go to his sisters Yioda, 57, and Melanie, 55, who were the main beneficiaries of his will.

And the loyal star’s family are likely to benefit further from the success of his businesses.

George died aged 53 on Christmas Day 2016, when he was found lifeless in bed by on-off lover Fadi Fawaz.

One financial expert said: “George’s untimely death has had the effect of increasing sales and royalties of his songs. The fact that it is so much three years after his death shows the popularity of his music.

“There is no reason why this level of earnings won’t continue for some time.”

Singer-songwriter George sold more than 80 million albums worldwide in his career making him one of the best-selling artists ever.

'Big Brother 21' Runner-Up Holly Allen Addresses Fans Who Accused Jackson Michie of 'Gaslighting' Her

During Big Brother 21, Jackson Michie was accused of racism because he banished three minorities on the first day and being verbally abusive as he allegedly “gaslighted” Holly Allen in arguments and spoke aggressively to other females, including Kathryn Dunn.

Allen defended her boyfriend on a podcast, explaining she “wouldn’t be in love with the kid” if he had a racist bone in him and claimed she does stick up for herself to him.

Holly Allen and Jackson Michie got into a fight on ‘Big Brother 21’

Around Week 10, Jackson Michie joined Cliff Hogg, Tommy Bracco, and Christie Murphy in the living room while they were having a conversation. Allen walked up to Michie, and the server immediately told her he wanted to talk later.

Upset, the safari guide called him an “f*****g a*****e” and walked away to the outside bedroom, infuriating Michie. Allen explained her feelings to Murphy and then approached her boyfriend in the Head of Household room after they ignored each other for a while.

He told Allen he did not deserve for her to call him that name after everything he’s done for her and embarrassed both of their families on national television by doing so.

Michie also compared her to ex-girlfriends, and Allen ended up leaving the room crying. They seemed to explain their feelings to each other and worked things out, until Michie later brought the situation up again, and said she looked like a mean girl because of how she plays with her hair.

Allen got upset, and Michie gave her a pep talk until they went to sleep, saying how “unbelievably special” she is and that he’s her number one cheerleader.

Fans accused Jackson Michie of being verbally abusive

Fans sounded off on Twitter about Michie’s behavior in the fight, accusing him of “gaslighting” Allen by spinning everything around on her and making the safari guide feel bad for merely having feelings.

Another viewer said Michie was “not letting her speak, playing the victim when he hurt her, berates the s***t while she sobs, and then cuddles her. Sickening.”

BB15 winner Andy Herren also joined in the conversation, saying Michie “demonized a strong woman.”

Holly Allen defended Jackson Michie’s character

When asked about the fight with Michie on Your Reality Recaps Podcast, Allen prefaced everything by saying, “humans get stressed out and fight,” and reminded everyone they went from being strangers to lovers living together with no distractions.

Additionally, the couple couldn’t communicate the best because they had things in their past that they wanted to share. However, they were always mic’d up and didn’t want their personal lives out to the world.

Therefore, the safari guide said the fight happened because she became incredibly frustrated after feeling that he shut her out. Since being out of the house, Allen said they only had one miscommunication, and they sat down, explained their past and other triggers, and things have been great ever since.

She also made a point to address people who said Allen allowed Michie to talk down to her, explaining she immediately stood up to him when they had their disagreement.

However, the safari guide didn’t want to inside the house because she didn’t know how he would react as it has “went bad” for her previously. Allen also took some ownership in the argument, explaining she was back and forth about wanting to be in a showmance and “hesitant” because of their age difference.

Nonetheless, Allen and Michie have seemed to work things out and are happy together outside the house.

Who do fans say Hannah Summers looks like?

After appearing on Michael McIntyre's Big Show in December 2018, Hannah drew a lot of comparisons with one very famous face.

Hannah and Anton had been dating for six years, after meeting at a golf club.

The couple live in a four-bedroom property worth an estimated £800,000 in Buckinghamshire.

The Strictly stalwart’s spokesman later confirmed they had indeed got married on the quiet following the birth of their twins.

 

Do the couple have any children?

He posted: "Hannah and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting twins in the spring. We are over the moon!"

Heath Ledger told Billy Bob Thornton to really hit him in Monster’s Ball

Watch the full episode of Couch Surfing streaming now on PeopleTV.com, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device.

One of the most pivotal scenes in Monster’s Ball was a lot more real than anyone may have realized.

The dark 2001 drama starred Billy Bob Thornton as a southern death row prison guard named Hank and the late Heath Ledger as his sensitive son and fellow guard Sonny. In one crucial scene in the movie, Sonny breaks down as he’s supposed to be escorting a prisoner to his execution; later, Hank angrily confronts his son, calling him weak.

Things get physical between the two, and when Thornton stopped by PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing to reminisce on his past performances, he revealed some intel on that intense moment.

“That scene right there, I was really hitting Heath,” Thornton says. “And he asked me to. I said, ‘Now listen, I’m a little more of a veteran than you. When I was a young actor I used to ask people to hit me and it hurts.’ I said, ‘I’ll do it if you want me to,’ and he said, ‘Please.’ He said he needed it. And I was hitting him pretty hard.”

RELATED VIDEO: Billy Bob Thornton played his Fargo character as if he were supernatural

Monster’s Ball was an incredibly tragic story dealing with race and abuse. And that’s why Thornton, who is currently starring in season 3 of Amazon Prime Video’s Goliath, reveals he wasn’t a Method actor while off set filming his scenes.

“I did not stay in character all the time,” the actor says. “That would have been really hard on a person.”

'This Is Us': 7 Things Fans Loathe More Than the Slow Cooker That Killed Jack Pearson

We hate to be the ones to bring it up again, but the death of Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) on This Is Us has not been avenged. Sure, the slow cooker that started the fire burned in the house, but is that enough?

Luckily, there are a few things This Is Us fans dislike as much, if not more than the killer slow cooker. Here they are, in no particular order.

The neighbor, George, who gifted the slow cooker

George meant well with the gift, but it’s hard to overlook how long it sat in his garage before it was given to Jack and Rebecca. He should’ve tested it enough to be sure it wouldn’t cause a death trap.

This thing is even shown in the pilot, mocking fans long before they know what’s coming.

Not only that, he shouldn’t have insisted Jack and Rebecca take his old gift. They were young and naive with little to their name. Of course they’ll take your faulty slow cooker. Do better, George.

The smoke alarm batteries that should’ve had enough juice

Since the episode aired, firefighters everywhere advocated for the changing of smoke alarm batteries. It’s something we all know to do and yet, often fail to do so until it’s too late.

Jack’s death is a grim reminder to change those batteries whether the alarm is chirping or not. It’s also a mockery as to how long batteries typically last (forever) — until you actually need them to.

Super Bowl Sunday

View this post on Instagram

We can't believe it's been a year. #ThisIsUs

A post shared by This Is Us (@nbcthisisus) on

We don’t want to paint Super Bowl Sunday as the worst day of the year because of Jack’s death, but we’d also be remiss not to include it. There can never be a Super Bowl Sunday without the memory of Jack’s last one. It’s a fact.

Rebecca’s Chili

Without George or his dangerous slow cooker gift, without the Super Bowl or the dead smoke alarm batteries, Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) chili would be a wonderful treat on a cold, Philly day.

Now, the same chili she still makes in the present-day (to feel like Jack is with her) is synonymous with the food that cooked in the slow cooker that caused the fire. Next time, consider ordering a pizza. At least that won’t end in misery (probably).

The vending machine that dispensed Rebecca’s candy bar

If anything is to blame more than the slow cooker, it’s the vending machine that dispensed Rebecca’s candy bar. Sure, Jack said he’s fine, but he inhaled too much smoke and you know it.

In the moments she ate the candy and made a phone call, Jack suffered a cardiac arrest and died in his hospital room, alone.

Put down the candy bar, Rebecca. It won’t save Jack but at least he’ll have you by his side when it happens.

The doctor who first diagnosed Jack with tachycardia but did nothing about it

View this post on Instagram

Life lesson alert: Remember to breathe.

A post shared by This Is Us (@nbcthisisus) on

Where do we begin? It’s one thing to diagnose the heart condition; it’s quite another to suggest ways Jack could enlist without them noticing his irregular heartbeat.

Jack is persistent and likely would’ve found a way to get to his little brother, Nicky (Michael Angarano), but the doctor knew then it was a bad idea. Where was Jack’s advocate? Had he been properly treated thereafter, maybe he never would’ve had the heart attack that took his life.

Miguel, just because

Season 4 of This Is Us is trying hard to get you to love Miguel Rivas (Jon Huertas). He’s a good guy in his own right. He and Rebecca’s marriage is a by-product of two close friends who found solace in one another after grief. It’s kind of beautiful.

However, when it comes down to it, he’s no Jack Pearson and never will be. You’re OK, Miguel, but we miss you, Jack.

Who is Sebastian on Legacies? Thomas Doherty plays old vampire newcomer to Mystic Falls

Last night’s episode of Legacies Season 2 introduced Sebastian, played by actor Thomas Doherty. Sebastian ran into Lizzie Saltzman (Jenny Boyd) at the Old Mill and Lizzie immediately fell for him.

The stranger looked confused and disoriented and wanted to know where he was. Lizzie told him the place was the Old Mill. She guessed from his confusion that he was not a new student. Sebastian looked faint and Lizzie asked him whether he was okay. As she approached, he ominously warned her to stay away from him. When he turned to leave, Lizzie asked for his name and he introduced himself as Sebastian.

It was clear when Lizzie and Sebastian met later that MG (Quincy Fouse) had been set up for a major heartbreak.

If you wanted to know more about Sebastian, portrayed by actor Thomas Doherty, here is everything we know.

Who is Sebastian?

As show creator Julie Plec teased earlier this summer, Sebastian is an old vampire from the 15th century “who got desiccated when he was 17 years old” and wakes up more than 600 years later to find himself in the 21st century. Sebastian struggles to fit in to a new and unfamiliar world in which “all the rules of being a vampire have changed.”

Since last week’s season premiere episode of the show, fans have been speculating about the identity of the mysterious hooded figure that appeared again on last night’s episode. The robed figure killed someone and carved a mysterious symbol on their forehead.

Some fans think it could be Sebastian, but others think it could the new sorcerer-headmaster Professor Vardemus, played by Alexis Denisof. Vardemus, who also debuted on last night’s episode of the show, takes over from Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis) as the new headmaster of Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted.

Plec revealed in an interview with EW last week that we will have to wait to learn whether the mystery figure is Sebastian or another character. But if it is Sebastian, then he is clearly up to no good.

Who is Thomas Doherty, the actor who plays Sebastian?

Thomas Doherty is a Scottish actor and singer born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on April 21, 1995.

He started acting when he was very young and joined the Lothian Youth Arts and Musicals Company. He attended Royal High School in Edinburgh and studied musical theater at The MGA Academy of Performing Arts, also in Edinburgh, Scotland. Doherty is a trained actor, singer, and dancer. He trained in tap and ballet, contemporary dance, and hip hop.

He graduated from MGA in July 2014 and signed to Olivia Bell Management in London.

He played Sean Matthews on Disney Channel’s The Lodge. But he is probably best known for his role as Harry Hook on Disney’s Descendants 2 and Descendants 3.

He also played Peter Zavadovsky on the TV series, Catherine The Great.

Breathtaking snaps give fans a first glimpse at Sir David Attenborough’s new BBC nature documentary – The Sun

SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH has travelled to every continent for a tear-jerking new series that reveals the impact of global warming on wildlife.

Among heartbreaking scenes in Seven Worlds, One Planet are penguins and baby albatrosses perishing, plus a mum abandoning her baby seal in a blizzard, leaving it to die.

The 93-year-old presenter starts his journey at the foot of the globe, in Antarctica, 98 per cent of which is covered in ice and where winds reach 70mph.

David describes it as, “the harshest continent of them all”.

The seven-part BBC1 series, which starts next Sunday, also sees the legendary presenter head to Kenya and Iceland.

David says he has been warning about the dangers of climate change for years and finally he is being taken seriously.


He explains: “It is extraordinary. At the time people thought we were cranks but suddenly, after Blue Planet II, you hit the right note.”

He adds: “I’m thrilled that we’re about to share this incredible series with the world.

“Seven Worlds, One Planet celebrates the variety of life on our planet while also shining a spotlight on its challenges.”

A team of more than 1,500 people were involved in the mammoth shoot that visited an incredible 41 countries.



Here are some more of the remarkable scenes they captured . . .
