NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images/Dana Edelson(LOS ANGELES) -- It took cutting edge genetic technology to prove what HAD to be true: Larry David and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders are actually related.

David, who played his political doppelganger to rave reviews on Saturday Night Live, made the revelation during an appearance Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

It was a bit of a spoiler, as it turns out.

The cranky co-creator of Seinfeld and star and creator of Curb Your Enthusiasm said he learned of the link when he took part in an upcoming episode of Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, JR. on PBS, a show in which celebrities learn about their ancestry.

"I was very happy about that," David said of the findings. Then he joked, "They told me not to say anything! You just spilled the beans!"

Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm returns on October 1 on HBO.

ABC/Eric McCandless(LOS ANGELES) -- Now that he's ditched the briefing room, is Sean Spicer considering a move to the ballroom?

The embattled former White House Press Secretary, who announced his resignation last Friday, reportedly is being courted by ABC's Dancing with the Stars, and a beltway source tells the New York Post that the rumor "has legs."

Spicer, 45, was spotted leaving the New York City offices of the four major TV networks, says the source, adding that some executives "made the full-court press” for the touchy spokesperson, while others “just kicked the tires.”

Spicer had no comment when reached by phone by the newspaper on Wednesday. An ABC rep said, “We don’t comment on casting.”

Current Energy Secretary and former Texas Governor Rick Perry competed on last season's Dancing with the Stars after a losing bid for the GOP presidential nomination. He was booted off DWTS after the third week.

Dancing with the Stars returns for its 25th season September 18 on ABC.

Photo: Eric Charbonneau(DETROIT) -- Detroit, Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow's drama set in the racially charged 1967 Detroit clash between police and black residents, opens in limited release this weekend -- with wide release coming next week. 

For all involved, including Bigelow, director of Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker, the movie is not just about a 50 year old event but its connection to racial tensions today.

"Its topicality and timeliness made it an imperative to tell this story, to me," Bigelow said at a premiere event in Detroit this week.

One of the movie's stars, Avengers actor Anthony Mackie, said he hopes the movie will be instructive. "I think largely what happened in Detroit 50 years ago is forgotten," he said. "So I hope that people go see this movie and remember where we were, see where we are and from this point do something different."

Bigelow hopes the movie will even be healing, helping people see one another from the other's perspective. "Our culture is very divided, and I think we need to find an opportunity, or many opportunities, to build a bridge," she said.

The movie focuses on a single episode during the riots -- sparked by a police raid on an unlicensed club led to four days of rioting and looting with President Lyndon Johnson calling in troops, leaving 43 dead and the city in flames. So, it tries to mix a dramatic story with the history. 

For star John Boyega, of Star Wars fame, it works. "The great thing about movies [is] we are able to dramatize and go into depth about [a] situation on an emotional level as well as factual," he said. "Detroit rides a good balance, and now's the time for us to have these conversations."

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- After more or less laying low for the past couple of years, Jon Stewart is returning to the small screen in a big way.

Stewart, who stepped down as host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show in 2015, will headline his first HBO stand-up special in more than 20 years, and emcee the upcoming Night of Too Many Stars charity benefit for autism, Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming announced on Wednesday.

The new comedy special, which doesn't have a title or airdate yet, will be the first for the 54-year-old comedian since Jon Stewart: Unleavened in 1996.

“I’m really thrilled to be able to return to stand-up on HBO,” says Stewart. ”They’ve always set the standard for great stand-up specials. Plus, I can finally use up the last of the Saddam Hussein jokes left over from my first special.”

Additionally, this fall Stewart will host the latest Night of Too Many Stars all-star benefit for NEXT For AUTISM, airing live from The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 18. The special, created by comedy writer and performer Robert Smigel to support autism schools, programs and services, will feature stand-up performances, sketches and short films.

NEXT for AUTISM -- formerly New York Collaborates for Autism -- is a non-profit organization that strategically designs, launches and supports innovative programs to improve the lives of people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

“We’re excited to bring Jon to the network with this pair of specials, says Bloys. "We’ve all missed his uniquely thoughtful brand of humor.”

Getty Images/Harold Cunningham(LOS ANGELES) -- In an in-depth interview with Vanity Fair, Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie talks about her upcoming projects, her family life following her split from husband Brad Pitt, and reveals some recent health scares.

Following surgery to remove her ovaries as a preventative measure against cancer, Jolie, 42, says she began menopause and developed hypertension, both side-effects of the operation. In addition, the left side of her face began to droop last year, leading to a diagnosis of Bell's palsy. 

She credits acupuncture with helping her facial nerves recover. Despite having drier skin and some extra gray hairs -- "I can’t tell if it’s menopause or if it’s just been the year I’ve had," she jokes -- Jolie is taking the changes in stride. 

"I actually feel more of a woman because I feel like I’m being smart about my choices, and I’m putting my family first, and I’m in charge of my life and my health," she says.  "I think that’s what makes a woman complete."

Jolie's "very proud" of her kids: 15-year-old Maddox, 13-year-old Pax, 12-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. "They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals," she says.  She added of the "difficult" time that led to her break-up with Pitt, "They’ve been very brave ...We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing...They’re not healing from divorce. They’re healing from...things in life.”

Jolie and Pitt split after an allegedly drunken outburst from the actor aimed at Maddox. About her relationship with Pitt now, she offered, "We care for each other and care about our family, and we are both working towards the same goal."

(L-R) Jon Lung, Brian Louden -- Science Channel - 2017(LOS ANGELES) -- Get ready for more massive explosions, all in the name of science!  Mythbusters will return to TV November 15.

The Science Channel revealed the news Wednesday at the Television Critics Association gathering in Los Angeles, and talked up the show's new hosts as well.  Earlier this year, Brian Louden and Jon Lung were named the winners of MythBusters: The Search, a show designed to find people to replace the series' fan-favorite original hosts, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. 

"As evidenced by their amazing work on MythBusters: The Search, Brian and Jon are clearly superstars with a knack for building and executing creative and mind-blowing experiments," said Marc Etkind, General Manager of Science Channel in a statement.

Texas native Louden has a biology degree and extensive work in emergency medicine, and also worked as a drilling engineer. Lung, a native New Yorker, has a varied background in product design, and wood and metal fabrication.

The original series kicked off in 2003 on the Discovery Channel, and was nominated multiple times for Emmy Awards in the outstanding reality series category.

A shake-up took place before the show's final season that saw the network cut co-stars Grant Imahara, Tori Belleci, and Kari Byron from the show, angering many fans, and leaving just Savage and Hyneman to close the show's fourteen-year run on Science in 2016.

Trans actress and activist Laverne Cox -- ABC/Jeff Neira(LOS ANGELES) -- Celebrities and Hollywood have shared their reactions -- mostly of outrage -- to President Donald Trump announcement Wednesday banning transgender people from serving in the U.S. military. Here are a few of the reactions:

Caitlyn Jenner: There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them?

George Takei: History shall record that you are not only the stupidest, most incompetent president ever, but also the cruelest and pettiest. #Shame

Mia Farrow: no. My God. This must be challenged.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: Sending a message that hate & discrimination should be tolerated if it saves us money. A shameful yet unsurprising new low. #EqualityForAll

Getty Images/Nicolas Hunt(LOS ANGELES) -- The President is Missing -- the forthcoming novel from former President Bill Clinton and best-selling author James Patterson -- isn't due out until next year, but a bidding war apparently already is brewing in Hollywood for the film rights.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Patterson and Clinton himself are set to meet this week with big-name producers and directors, like Steven Spielberg, George Clooney and J.J. Abrams, as the pair peddle the chance to make the book into a movie.

Little is known about the plot of the novel -- which is set to be published June 11, 2018 -- other than that it is about a president who has gone missing. But a promotional blurb for the book promises a "one-of-a-kind thriller filled with the kind of insider details that only a president can know."

Terence Patrick/CBS ©2017 CBS Broadcasting, Inc.(LOS ANGELES) -- Usher made a surprise visit to The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday night for the latest edition of “Carpool Karaoke.” The segment, which may have been filmed some time ago, made no mention of the singer’s recent scandal and went right into the music.

Seconds after James stops to pick up Usher, they’re singing “Yeah,” and tackling the Ludacris rap part together.

James asks him about dancing and popping bottles and stops so James can show Usher his moves. Next they go off on “Let It Burn.”

While they’re driving, Usher thinks they passed his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, so James goes back around and they find it. Usher says he thinks it’s weird to have a star on the sidewalk where people can walk on it. When they get out, they see that it could use a cleaning, so the two are soon polishing it up as James cautions people nearby to be respectful and walk around the star.

Next, they’re singing, “Caught Up.” Usher tells James that he’s a vegan but having some difficulty.

“I like beef, I like chicken. But I'm a vegan,” he says.

To which James replies, “Just so you know, that means you're not a vegan.”

After a brief take on “I Don’t Mind,” there is a lively discussion about Usher calling his woman a b**** which James says he definitely could not do, though Usher seems to be OK with it. “You don't introduce her as your b****. It's just what you say between you and her. It's friendly banter,” he says.

They help a motorist by pushing his stalled car, then close the segment with a bouncy take on “OMG.”

The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS.

Getty Images/David J. Hogan(LOS ANGELES) -- Director James Cameron is returning to Titanic.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his film, Cameron and the National Geographic network will partner on an hour-long documentary that will look not only at the making of the film, but also the discoveries about the sunken oceanliner made over the last two decades.

Also taking part will be Dr. Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the wreck. Cameron and Ballard will discuss the recently declassified story of Ballard's discovery while on a secret mission for the U.S. Navy.

The special also will explore new research about the doomed ships final hours.

“When I wrote the film, and when I set out to direct it, I wanted every detail to be as accurate as I could make it, and every harrowing moment of the ship’s final hours accounted for,” Cameron said in a statement. “I was creating a living history; I had to get it right out of respect for the many who died and for their legacy. But did I really get it right? Now, with National Geographic and with the latest research, science and technology, I’m going to reassess.” 

Titanic: 20th Anniversary will air in December.

While Cameron and NatGeo will be taking viewers back to Titanic, the network is also pairing with Leonardo DiCaprio to take viewers to the moon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Titanic star’s company, Appian Way Productions, is teaming up with NatGeo to develop a scripted, a multiple-season drama based on The Right Stuff, the 1979 book by Tom Wolfe about the U.S. fighter pilots engaged in postwar research with experimental rocket-powered, high-speed aircraft and documents the stories of the first astronauts selected for the American space program.

DiCaprio will serve as an executive producer.

NBCUniversal Media - 2017(LOS ANGELES) -- The Judge Cuts continued on Tuesday’s edition of America’s Got Talent, with seven more of the 20 acts that made it through the auditions advancing to the Live Rounds.

Sad, singing clown Puddles Pity Party; song and dance duo Mirror Image; salsa dancers Junior and Emily; mentalist Colin Cloud; and singers Evie Clair and Yoli Mayor all advanced. Singer/songwriter Chase Goehring was sent straight to the Live Rounds via “the Golden Buzzer.”

Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B were back behind the judges’ table to offer their opinions and decide which acts would advance. Helping them this week was DJ Khaled.

Here’s a rundown of some of Tuesday’s highlights:

Brother and sister salsa dancers Junior and Emily pulled off a series of complicated and dizzying spins to “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers featuring Daya. However, the brief 90-second routine left all the judges, except for Howie, a little disappointed.

Chase Goehring, a 21-year-old singer/songwriter whose unique style features some fast rapping, performed an original tune called “A Capella.” DJ Khaled declared that Chase was on his way to becoming a star. He pressed his Golden Buzzer, sending Goehring straight to the Live Rounds.

Mirror Image, consisting of twin brothers Colton and Trent, opened their performance with a slow vocal rendition of The Mamas & the Papas’ “California Dreaming,” followed by some athletic dance moves to Sia’s “The Greatest.” Simon hit his buzzer, but the other judges loved the act, with Mel B telling the duo, “Forget the ‘X’, you’ve got us, you’ve got me rooting for you.”

Evie Clair, 13, delivered an emotional version of Macy Gray’s “I Try.” Howie was “moved” by the performance. Mel B agreed, adding that the teen “sings with such heart and soul.” DJ Khaled said Evie “touched everybody’s hearts soul and spirit.” Heidi and Simon both pointed out that the singer was off key in places, but still had “heart.”

“Real-life Sherlock Holmes” Colin Cloud confounded the judges with a series of mind-reading tricks that included licking Mel’s hand and telling her what she ate that day, and using Howie, Simon and Heidi to open a locked cell phone by calling out random numbers. Simon called Cloud’s act “more than magic, it’s having special powers,” adding, “It was spooky. Fantastic."

Puddles Pity Party, a sad, singing clown, delivered a rendition of Eric Carmen’s “All by Myself.” Puddles got a mixed reaction from the judges. Mel loved the act. Heidi said she liked it too, but didn’t find herself being “super excited.” DJ Khaled was “confused,” explaining, “You’ve got a beautiful voice, cheer up, man.” Simon, disagreed, noting that he hated clowns, but connected with Puddles because he liked “the tragedy thing.”

Singer Yoli Mayor, 21, covered Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” and drew a standing ovation from the judges and studio audience. Heidi said that of all the singers in the competition, Yoli was “one of the best or THE best.” DJ Khaled called the performance “flawless.” Simon was fascinated by the fact that Mayor didn’t realize the extent of her talent and looked forward to helping her find her own “space.”

The Judge Cuts continue with Laverne Cox as the guest judge when America’s Got Talent returns Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.

Getty Images for Disney(LOS ANGELES) -- Remember that Rihanna/Lupita Nyong'o action movie everyone was having fun fantasizing about a few months ago on Twitter?  Nyongo'o's thanking fans for making that happen. 

“You know, what’s really cool is that people spoke up about the kind of movie they wanna see and this is a great example,” Nyong'o told Entertainment Tonight.

The idea for the project began in April, when a photo, taken in 2014 of Rihanna and Nyong'o fashionably dressed in the front row of a Miu Miu fashion show, went viral as a meme, with fans saying Rihanna would scam "rich white men," and Lupita would be her, "computer-smart best friend that helps plan the scams."

After other Twitter users joined in, tapped Insecure writer/star Issa Rae to pen the script and Selma director Ava DuVernay to call the shots, the made-up movie became a reality, and is reportedly attached to Netflix. 

During at her appearance at Comic-Con over the weekend, Nyong'o said she even saw commonalities between her upcoming Marvel film, Black Panther, and the proposed heist film.

“Black Panther is being embraced because people are really hungry for this kind of film, and that movie with me and Rihanna and Issa and Ava is another one of those examples,” Nyono’o said. “People want to see something like themselves and something different, something they’re not being offered yet. I’m honored to be a part of that conversation.”
