Rosario Dawson To Play DEA Agent on Hulu's Upcoming Show 'Dopesick'

Rosario Dawson has joined the cast of Hulu‘s upcoming series, Dopesick.

According to The Wrap, the 40-year-old actress will be a series regular for the show and star as Bridget Meyer, a “tough DEA agent who fights to curtail the use of OxyContin.”

The drama is described as “an ambitious, harrowing, and compelling look into the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction.”

The series will be set in a distressed Virginia mining community, the hallways of the DEA and the opulence of “one-percenter” Big Pharma Manhattan.

Dopesick is also set to star Michael Keaton, Peter Sarsgaard, Kaitlyn Dever, Will Poulter, John Hoogenakker, Philippa Soo and Jake McDorman.

The move comes just after Rosario‘s USA series, Briarpatch, was cancelled.

Jill Duggar Got An Attorney Involved After Claiming She Didn't Get Paid For 'Counting On'

Jill Duggar Got An Attorney Involved After Claiming She Didn't Get Paid For 'Counting On'

Jill Duggar has announced that she has left her family’s reality television empire of Counting On.

The 29-year-old mom, and the second born daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, revealed in an interview that she had begun to distance herself from her family.

“I never expected this to happen or for it to get to this point,” she shared with People this week. “But I’m realizing I can’t put a timeline on healing. I love my family and they love me. I really just have to follow God’s lead and take it one day at a time.”

Jill added that her and husband Derick Dillard‘s “control to choose what jobs we were allowed to accept and even where we were allowed to live was taken away from us.”

He continued, “The first few years of our marriage, we spent time and money working towards opportunities only to hit a dead end when we’d be told, ‘Well, you’re not allowed to do that.’”

Since leaving, Jill has pulled away even more as she tasted her first drink of alcohol and also began to wear jeans, which her other sisters are not doing.

Now though, Jill and Derick have sought out legal advice in order to obtain the finances they say that they were not paid for Counting On.

According to Jill, her dad is the primary payee for the flagship show, 19 Kids & Counting, and then again for Counting On. The payout for him was around $25,000 to $45,000 per episode paycheck.

She says that she didn’t receive any compensation until she quit the show in 2017.

“That’s when we got an attorney involved and finally recovered some of the money,” Jill shared. “It was a process.”

Derick adds that the money they did receive was only a “little more than minimum wage” in a recent video.

John Boyega Reveals The Only Project That Would Make Him Return as Finn in 'Star Wars'

John Boyega Reveals The Only Project That Would Make Him Return as Finn in 'Star Wars'

John Boyega still has hope for one of Finn’s axed storylines from the Star Wars franchise.

Speaking with Yahoo, the 28-year-old actor opened up about the scene he really hoped would make it to the big screen.

In the leaked script for Colin Trevorrow‘s scrapped film, it was revealed that Finn’s was originally going to end the trilogy by becoming a revolutionary and leading a class rebellion along with Rose on the galactic capital planet of Coruscant.

“I think Colin Trevorrow was going to tell that story,” John shared. “The concept art in the ‘Star Wars’ book has that image of Finn with the blue flag, and you have the AT-ATs lined up with tribal marks, and the stormtroopers take off their helmets. That would have been sick. That would have been dope, hands down.”

While John has been vocal about not returning to the franchise, it looks like he’d be open to still voicing the character in an animation project.

“Animated? Yeah that would be cool,” he said. “You could do it all from home.”

Just recently, John criticized the franchise for excluding characters of color in main storylines. Here’s what he said…
