If you have Hulu, you are well-aware Sebastian Stan is king of the streaming service. His portrayal of Tommy Lee in 'Pam and Tommy' is unparalleled. It is hard to look away when he is on the screen with the dynamic Lily James in the role of Pamela Anderson. So when Hulu announced Stan's latest film 'Fresh' would be available March 4th, fans were overjoyed. What started out as a sweet RomCom about the mishaps of dating quickly shifted a half hour in. It was very clear that this was about to be a ride you may want to get off even with Stan as the titular role of Steve. Here's the initial synopsis by 3 Ice Cubes:

Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones) is tired of online dating though she keeps on trying. She heads to a date with a man who reminds her to bring cash so they can go Dutch. He is the reason why dating is painful and even takes her leftovers, the ones she paid cash for. When he insists they go out again after it is clear he is an epic dud, Noa lets him down gently but he retaliates and calls her horrid names. A few days later, she meets sweet Steve (Stan) at the grocery store. She reluctantly gives him her number, they have a great first date and end up sleeping together. It all goes so well, she ends up going away with him. Little does she know, he is not what he says he is.

This is when we had to Wikipedia the plot because it is getting way to creepy and it turns out to be a romantic thriller. SPOILERS AHEAD: Steve is actually a cannibal who harvests women for a lot of money. He wants to harvest Noa's body parts but very slowly as he has grown an affection for her. Her best friend Mollie is worried when she realizes Noa has been gone for too long and starts to investigate Steve. He is actually married, his wife knows what he is doing, and it all ends very badly.

To sum it up, Sebastian Stan is amazing as a charming psycho killer, Daisy is delightful as the tough heroine, and the supporting cast helps to hold up this insane film. You may not want to eat any meat ever again after watching this so proceed with caution. It is beyond disgusting but girl power is strong and it is further proof that Stan can literally play any part. 'Fresh' is now streaming on Hulu.

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby.

She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny.
