In an interview with LGBTQ magazine Out, the actress said that she's "learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive."

The USA Network has officially ordered the television show Treadstone, which is set in the Jason Bourne universe, straight to series.
As reported by Variety, the series focuses on Operation Treadstone, a top-secret program intended to create nearly superhuman spies and assassins. Treadstone achieved this by breaking down the moralities of its subjects - the first season will reportedly follow multiple subjects as they are "awakened" to complete their missions. The season will begin production some time in 2019.
Treadstone is being written and executive produced by Tim Kring, known for creating the shows Strange World and Heroes. Other executive producers include Ben Smith, Jefferey Weiner, Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, Justin Levey and Ramin Bahrani, the last of which will also direct the series' pilot.
The Alienist is getting a sequel series based on author Caleb Carr's The Angel of Darkness novel, TNT has announced.
The book is set in 1897, a year after The Alienist, and once again follows Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, who's portrayed by Daniel Brühl. Alongside Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning will also return for the new series.
A premiere date for The Angel of Darkness has not been set yet.
The Alienist earned six Emmy Award nominations this year, including one for Outstanding Limited Series. The story follows Kreizler as he tries to capture a ritualistic killer murdering young boys.
In order to secure top-tier series like Stranger Things and Altered Carbon, Netflix is paying more in upfront costs than traditional broadcast networks.
While this financial tactic appears to be the obvious move to compete in the entertainment content wars of 2018, there are some disadvantages for creators and producers who buy-in to the Netflix approach.
In a report from CNBC, the outlet spoke with unnamed Hollywood executives who have had dealings with the streaming giant around the negotiating table. These sources said that Netflix uses a "cost-plus model" to secure the rights for new series.
Legendary Pokemon Regirock will start to appear in Pokemon Go today.

At the end of Battlefield V's official Gamescom trailer, titled Devastation of Rotterdam, we get a glimpse of the upcoming battle royale mode.
Beginning at 1:38 of the video below, we are shown a snowy and mountainous region with a ring of fire in the center that is slowly shrinking.
The trailer then cuts to a tank breaking through a building, a soldier screaming "fall back!", and ends with the same ring of fire quickly enclosing the tank, a soldier jumping off a tower, a flaming vehicle entering the fray and more.
This reveal was presented in a similar fashion to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer trailer that also showed their battle royale mode at the end of the video.
MoviePass has reduced its daily movie selection to around six to seven titles.
Variety reports MoviePass released a statement today explaining its daily film lineup has been reduced while the company works through a "transition period."
While the lineup will still contain both indie and blockbuster movies, showtime availability “may be limited depending on the popularity of those films on the app that particular day," according to Variety.
MoviePass has also put a limit on major films in their first two weeks of release. Crazy Rich Asians, for example, will only be available for subscribers starting on August 19, despite the movie having been in theaters since August 15.
Netflix has released the final Iron Fist Season 2 trailer, and it features plenty of action alongside teases for Danny Rand's iconic comic book costume and the villainous Steel Serpent, who was previewed as a major part of the new season at Comic-Con.
The trailer, which you can view below, begins with Danny Rand (Finn Jones) seemingly having taken up Daredevil's mantle as protector of Hell's Kitchen following the events of The Defenders - pushing himself to the breaking point while taking on street-level thugs. The footage puts a large emphasis on Sacha Dhawan's Davos, who's set to go up against Danny as the Steel Serpent, judging by his glowing red fist. New villain Typhoid Mary (Alice Eve) is also briefly featured, alongside the returning Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) and Luke Cage's Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who will seemingly also be a big part of this season - perhaps teeing up a Daughters of the Dragon spinoff.
Obviously, there's nothing that can be done at this point to change the WWE SummerSlam main event of Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar. I know this. The only wild card in play that can possibly reshape the scenario a bit is the Money in the Bank contract, which will either be held by Braun Strowman or Kevin Owens. But what's done is done. What's booked is booked. I'm just sort of Flashpoint'ing all of this.
On Sunday, August 19th, from Brooklyn's Barclays Center, SummerSlam will presumedly close out with the Universal Championship match between Reigns and Lesnar, marking the fourth time these two have clashed one-on-one on a major televised/WWE Network event, and the fifth time overall (last year's SummerSlam main event was a Fatal Fourway). Along these lines, with the Greatest Royal Rumble botch still counting, Roman has failed to defeat Lesnar all previous four times. Now he gets another go round at the champ who only surfaces when the spectral hound barks at dawn and three clovers appear in the knot of the old oak tree.
The next target for Jeff Bezos' ever-expanding Amazon empire might be movie theaters.
In a new report, Bloomberg writes that Amazon is in pursuit of acquiring Landmark Theaters. Amazon is said to be just one of several potential buyers of Landmark, a privately held company. And while an acquisition by any of the interested parties is said to be far from finalized, Landmark's owners have been working with an investment bank on making a possible sale.
Landmark focuses on showing independent and foreign films on its 268 screens at 56 theaters in 27 markets. The chain falls under the umbrella of Wagner/Cuban Companies., an entertainment group co-owned by billionaires Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban.

A canceled Star Wars spinoff would've featured Tatooine, according to production designer Neil Lamont.
In an interview with CinemaBlend, Lamont revealed a Star Wars spinoff project, which was reportedly canned for unknown reasons, would've gone to Tatooine alongside a variety of other "new galaxies."
"We were just starting our work on another Star Wars spinoff and yeah," Lamont said. "We were actually just making our mark on Tatooine -- which would have been interesting and some other new galaxies.
"So hopefully, if that comes back, we'll get the chance to be able to do that further."

Aliens. Cat mascots. Robots. Maid girls. What’s the first word that comes to your mind when you think of anime?
Lately for me, it’s been the show Planet With, streaming on Crunchyroll this season.
Planet With, in many ways, reminds me of the chuuni anime that aired back in the 2000s: the ones filled with high fantasy, big stakes, and a large cast of complicated friendships. Remember the times of Inuyasha, Code Geass, and Fullmetal Alchemist? Each one of these shows revelled in the unordinary and embraced the joy of being a variety of genres. Romance, drama, mystery - you name it, and these shows had it. But they also weren’t afraid of tackling the utter bizarre. The main character of Inuyasha is a dog demon? Check. In Fullmetal Alchemist, one of the companions is a tiny panda? Sure. Why not wield a power in only one eye? Code Geass wasn’t afraid to.
