Ice Cube, Barbershop,

We heard it was happening, and now Barbershop 3 has a release date. In a press release, New Line/MGM announced that Barbershop 3, starring Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, and Nicki Minaj, has been set for a Friday, February 19th, 2016 release.

No word on the plot or story line yet, but this should be an interesting blast from the past.

President Barack Obama and Jimmy Kimmel

Can we take a moment to applaud Jimmy Kimmel? The talk show host has decided not to air his live show in order to let David Letterman have the TV audience to himself for his last broadcast ever.

Letterman announced that May 20th would be his last show, as he’s planning on retiring.

“I have too much respect for Dave to do anything that would distract viewers from watching his final show,” Kimmel told NYT in an email. “Plus, I’ll probably be crying all day, which makes it hard to work.”

Now, that’s a stand up guy. Stephen Colbert is set to replace David Letterman as the host of The Late Show.

Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, and the cast of Empire are killing it overseas, which is rather groundbreaking considering that The Cosby Show was the first — and last — television series starring an African-American cast to become a worldwide hit. Since the success of shows like Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, and Power, international broadcasters are starting to pay attention and pick up more Black shows.

“Empire’s phenomenal ratings — viewership increased week-over-week, every week, closing with a season high of nearly 17 million total viewers — convinced buyers to take another look.

“When it started to air — every week it grew and grew — many important clients of ours have contacted us to rethink what they were doing,” Marion Edwards, 20th Century Fox Television Distribution’s president of international TV, told THR in March.”

Looks like they’re going to do another Jimi Hendrix movie with the approval of his estate.

Legendary Pictures has reached agreement with Experience Hendrix and is now moving forward with what it hopes will be the ultimate film on the man whose guitar wizardry and psychedelic fashion sense made him one of the most iconic stars in rock history, even though Hendrix died in 1970 at 27 when his star was still rising.

Andre 3000 played the legend in the first Hendrix biopic All By My Side; who will take on the challenge this time?
