The Tale Of Ellen Degeneres, Matthew McConaughey And The Bull

(PCM) We are sure many of you have already seen the new Lincoln car commercial featuring actor Matthew McConaughey. In the commercial McConaughey revisits his Emmy-nominated role of Rust Cohle from the hit HBO series “True Detective”. The commercial is a bit odd, however comedienne Ellen Degeneres takes her spoof of the commercial to a new level of hilarity. Ellen claims that if people were a bit confused by the initial commercial it was because her part was somehow cut out! The original commercial featured McConaughey as Cohle sitting in the Lincoln face to face with a bull standing in the middle of a lonesome stretch of highway. McConaughey has a Cohle-eque debate with himself before ultimately deciding to “take the long way”. What was missing was Ellen’s hilarious backseat antics…check out the video below:

David Chase Finally Opens Up About Tony Soprano’s Fate On The Sopranos Finale

(PCM) The burning question left in the hearts and minds of viewers as the witnessed the finale of the hit HBO television series “The Sopranos” was: Is Tony alive or dead? Series creator and executive producer David Chase has been notoriously silent about the entire issue, refusing to comment on our beloved Tony Soprano’s ultimate fate, that is until now… In a feature that was published on Vox.com, author Martha P. Nochimson once again attempted to pose the question of Tony’s fate to Chase during an interview and his response was quite surprising. Chase revealed “No he isn’t (dead)” and then said with very sudden explosive anger, “Why are we talking about this?” Many were still left speculating that perhaps the reason that Chase delivered such a short and ill-tempered answer is due to the fact that he was trying to get Nochimson to change the subject. People also feel that perhaps, yet again, Chase is leaving the outcome to still be decided and debated among fans. Either way, Hollywood still mourns the loss of the phenomenal actor that portrayed Tony Soprano, the late James Gandolfini and the topic of his character’s death will always be one of the most … Continue reading
