ET – Actress and Stephen King super-fan Katheryn Winnick has probably seen The Shawshank Redemption 15 times, so it’s fitting that she stars as Laurie Chambers in the film adaptation of The Dark Tower alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, which hit theaters last week.
“[Elba] is so tall when you see him in person,” said Winnick about her colleague when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly: The Show for a round of Co-Star Crush. “He’s so charming and I’ve been a huge fan of him and his TV shows.” And, like us, she also thinks its hard to not have a crush on McConaughey. “His stare and his voice, you can’t help but be mesmerized.”
Check out the whole clip above to find out what Winnick has to say about the rest of her Dark Tower costars and their acting chops.

DEADLINE – There are other worlds than these, but in this one, the first official international trailer for Sony/MRC’s The Dark Tower is upon us. The latest Stephen King feature adaptation stars Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba who teased the highly-anticipated movie in a Twitter exchange yesterday. Check out the full trailer above.
A Royal Affair‘s Nikolaj Arcel directs the post-apocalyptic story of Roland Deschain aka The Gunslinger (Elba) who is seeking a Dark Tower, the nexus of all universes, which would preserve his dying world. Along the way, he faces off with Walter O’Dim aka The Man in Black (McConaughey) who is determined to prevent him from toppling the Tower. Caught in the battle of good-vs-evil is young Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) whose earthly visions of the Gunslinger turn out not to be the stuff of dreams.
EW – Vikings recap: ‘Crossings’
Season 4, Ep. 16 | Aired Jan 4
Words travel slowly from the lonely ground in Northumbria, where the great, legendary, cursed Ragnar Lothbrok lies buried beneath earth and snakes and ambition. In Kattegat, his first wife Lagertha cannot believe he is dead. But her responsibility is clear. She must pick up the burden of rule, no matter the cost. “Ragnar hated it,” she tells her lover Astrid. “It weighed him down, perhaps it even killed him.” But she cannot disappoint her women: Not Astrid, not Torvi, not the shieldmaidens who fought and died for her. And she thinks Ragnar is watching her.
In Wessex, Ecbert mourns his friend, while his son Aethelwulf fears the worst. Ecbert had an agreement with Ragnar, a promise the Viking’s sons would seek vengeance only against Aelle. “Ragnar and I were alike in many ways,” says Ecbert, suddenly looking like an old man, or like a man who has begun to outlive his own time. He agrees Aethelwulf should raise an army; he will stay right where he is, at the seat of his power, teaching young Alfred the ways of this cruel world.
Lagertha assumes her own seat of power, sitting in the high throne at the center of Kattegat. She sat up there once before, next to Ragnar — and, briefly, next to Aslaug, Ragnar’s second wife. Lagertha, in charge, has some new ideas. Kattegat has become large, “the largest, richest trading center in Norway.” Others will be envious; the time has come to fortify, to dig ditches, to turn this small overgrown village into a true defended city.
