How ‘The Alienist’ Finally Found a Screen

The 10-episode season will present, from start to finish, the book’s story of Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a brilliant, prickly psychiatrist — or alienist, in the parlance of the day — and his team of cohorts tracking a killer who preys on boy prostitutes in the vice-ridden city. The German actor Daniel Brühl (“Rush”) stars as the titular doctor, with Dakota Fanning (“American Pastoral”) and Luke Evans (“Beauty and the Beast”) rounding out the leads.

Mr. Carr said the past film attempts failed because producers like Scott Rudin sought to turn his layered psychological tale into a more conventionally formatted blockbuster, proposing to cut characters, add a love story and otherwise abandon the main focus on the team tracking the murderer.

“If you don’t get what the central dynamic of a book is, you’re not going to be able to make a good movie out

Crossing the threshold: how Victoria’s assisted dying law finally made history

In the early hours of Tuesday 25 March 1997, the Australian Senate overturned the world’s first voluntary euthanasia law by just three votes.

Public reaction to the disallowance of the Northern Territory’s 1995 laws was furious, talkback radio inundated with callers angry that politicians, strong-armed by churches, were so out of touch with public opinion. A letter writer to the Sydney Morning Herald wished a key opponent of the NT’s scheme, the then little-known Victorian MP Kevin Andrews, “a long and excruciatingly painful life”.

Emotion was so strong that it was assumed by supporters of voluntary euthanasia – now usually called “assisted dying” – that states would quickly pass laws of their own to allow for terminally ill people to choose help to die.

Criminal Minds Exclusive: Alvez Finally Comes Clean About Scratch!

The team may have finally put Scratch (Bodhi Elfman) in the ground on Criminal Minds earlier this season, but there were still lingering issues pertaining to the team’s biggest foe. But this week, Scratch finally gets put to rest for good, and we have the exclusive clip showing you how.

When Scratch found himself dangling off the roof of the warehouse last season, Alvez (Adam Rodriguez) could have helped him, but didn’t. Instead, he stood there watching until Scratch lost his grip and dropped to the ground. Should he have done more? Would the bureau be OK with Alvez letting Scratch die instead of trying to save him so they get justice in a court of law?

Alvez learns the answers to these questions in this exclusive sneak peek when Prentiss (Paget Brewster) calls him into her office to go over his final report of the night. Prentiss points out

After years of playing Nazis and superhero villains, Daniel Brühl has finally landed a role that every young male protagonist can aspire to: the gifted criminal profiler. But this time, it’s in the 19th century!

The Alienist looks like the detective procedural got a gaslamp-lit makeover, with stars Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning teaming up to work as early criminal profilers in 1896, attempting to get into the mind of one of New York City’s first serial killers before they hunt him down.

“Instead of looking to cure a disease of the body, I look to help those who are suffering from illness of the mind,” Daniel Brühl’s Dr. Read more at: http://www.slashfilm.com/tnt-the-alienist-trailer-daniel-bruhl-dakota-fanning-luke-evans/

‘Criminal Minds’ Spoilers, Updates: Show Finally Explains Character Aaron Hotchner’s Fate After Actor Thomas Gibson …

“Criminal Minds” star Thomas Gibson was reportedly fired last summer. This is the reason why his character, Aaron Hotchner, made no appearance on the series’ Wednesday episode.

To recall, Gibson was suspended after kicking “Criminal Minds” writer Virgil Williams. Officials of CBS’ police procedural series then decided to formally let Gibson go. Last October 10, Gibson opened up to People about the incident and said that the kick was not intentional.

The actor admitted that he felt hurt about the incident. “I feel like it took years to make a good reputation and a minute to damage it,” Gibson said. He also shared about what really happened during that day. Gibson recalls that “[Williams] came into that room and started coming towards [him]. As [Williams] brushed past [Gibson], [his] foot came up and tapped [Williams] on the leg.”

“We had some choice words, for which I apologized the next day, and

Criminal Minds Finally Reveals What Happened to Thomas Gibson’s Character After Actor Was Fired

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

Following Thomas Gibson’s firing from Criminal Minds in August, fans finally have some closure on his character Aaron Hotchner.

In Wednesday’s episode, the CBS police procedural revealed Hotch has not been on special assignment, but rather in Witness Protection.

Rossi (Joe Mantegna) broke the news to the team near the beginning of “Elliott’s Pond,” which was directed by series veteran Matthew Gray Gubler (Dr. Spencer Reid). “We need to talk,” Rossi began. As it turns out, Hotch decided to leave the Behavioral Analysis Unit and enter Witness Protection after Peter Lewis, a.k.a. Mr. Scratch, began stalking his son, Jack (Cade Owens), at a soccer game.

“He’s OK, but he has not been away on special assignment,” said Rossi. “That’s something we had to say as a cover
