a person standing in front of a car: Ryan Murphy‘s world just expanded. The producer’s first Netflix series, Ratched, dropped on the streaming giant on Friday, September 18, introducing the world to an entirely new Nurse Ratched — a character featured in the 1975 drama One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The thrilling drama is dark, twisted and at times, very funny, following the life of Sarah Paulson‘s Ratched, a nurse who cons her way into on a job at a mental hospital. It doesn’t take long for her dark past to be revealed. The actress, 45, who has worked with Murphy for years on American Horror Story and American Crime Story, actually didn’t get approached for the role at first. “My agent called and said, ‘Is Ryan not talking to you about Ratched?’ I was like, ‘No!’ I called him and he said, ‘I wasn’t sure if it was something you wanted to do. You spent all this time on American Horror Story playing a different character every season. I don’t know if you’re going to want to play the same character season after season,” the Emmy winner told Vogue. “And I was like, ‘I might! You could just have asked me.’ And then I thought, ‘Why would I want to face-plant in front of the whole world by taking on a character that was made famous by Louise Fletcher, who gives an Oscar-winning performance?’ It might be the craziest thing I’ve ever thought about doing and that made it too intriguing to pass up. I’m a glutton for punishment.” Cynthia Nixon, whose character falls in love with Paulson’s devilish nurse, felt the exact opposite. “I’d been hearing about the project for a while and that there were a number of characters that I might be right for. Then, Ryan approached me about playing Gwendolyn,” the 54-year-old said. “She is so ahead of her time. She’s a queer woman and someone who wants not just to be behind the scenes in politics, but also to eventually be the candidate herself. That’s a tall order in this period.” Despite her fears, the Glass star dove in and rewatched the film to start. Despite viewing Ratched as “heinous” the first time around, it was different upon rewatching. “I was looking for a way to get inside her head and I said, ‘This woman is a victim of a patriarchal infrastructure at this hospital.’ The question is would we have hated the character so much if a man was playing it?” she recalled. “We come up against our own expectations that a woman who is a nurse should be maternal and soft. If not, she’s a villain.” For more on Ratched, scroll through the gallery below.

Be afraid, be very afraid. There are just two episodes left of "The Boys" Season 2 and after last week's reveal of Stormfront's (Aya Cash) true identity and Nazi roots, combined with the fact that Homelander (Antony Starr) accepted her proposition that they go to war "for the culture," Cash tells TheWrap you should be extremely concerned about the supe duo's plans.

Sacha Baron Cohen Mocks Trump With Job Offer as 'Racist Buffoon': 'You'll Need a Job After Jan 20'

  Sacha Baron Cohen Mocks Trump With Job Offer as 'Racist Buffoon': 'You'll Need a Job After Jan 20' "Borat" star Sacha Baron Cohen hit back at Donald Trump on Saturday, implying that the president was an unfunny yet laughed at "racist buffoon." "Donald–I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit I don't find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I'm always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you'll need a job after Jan. 20. Let's talk!," Baron Cohen wrote on Twitter Saturday, responding to Trump's"Donald–I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit I don't find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I'm always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you'll need a job after Jan. 20.

"I think everyone should be terrified of the two of them together," the Amazon Prime Video star said. "Because her agenda with his strength and narcissism is a dangerous combination. For Stormfront, it's a win to get him on her side and to have all the information now, because they sort of joined up without him having all the information."

"And I think Stormfront is trepidatious about letting him know the real deal and when he responds the way he does, she's like, great, now is the time to take over and make this happen," Cash continued. "So I think we should all be very afraid of where it's going with Homelander and Stormfront."

Last week's episode of "The Boys" Season 2 ended with the reveal that Stormfront decades-old is actually a Nazi — literally, from the Third Reich — who also happens to be the first supe ever created using Compound V. It's moment that connects the Stormfront from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comics with the one played by Aya Cash on Eric Kripke's Amazon series.

Borat's back, but does 'extreme comedy' really change minds or just push people away?

  Borat's back, but does 'extreme comedy' really change minds or just push people away? "How dark is she wanting to go?" a worker at an Oklahoma tanning salon asks, motioning toward a board showing different skin tones. It's still early in the Borat sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and Sacha Baron Cohen's titular character is bringing his daughter Tutar to local businesses for a makeover. "What colour is best for racist family?" he asks in a thick accent. The woman only hesitates a second before answering. "I would say right"What colour is best for racist family?" he asks in a thick accent. The woman only hesitates a second before answering.

But in a departure from the comic-book version, a man, Cash's Stormfront is a woman who was born in Berlin in 1919 and later injected with Compound V by her Nazi scientist husband Fredrick Vought, the founder of Vought. She has outlived both him and their daughter and continued to spread hate for years while disguising herself as superheroes, first as Liberty and now as Stormfront, the newest member of The Supes of the Seven.

"It's quite a big reveal and I think it's a way to link back to the comics and to acknowledge the history of the comics while also giving her another layer of horror and the reveal that she's Liberty and that she's been doing this for a long long time and that Vought's original intent was part of her agenda and she's trying to bring it back," Cash said.

"It's a really fascinating twist, too, when you see what's happened to Vought over the last however many years and where it's come — but where it originally started and the potential that it could go back."

A new episode of "The Boys" Season 2 premieres Friday on Amazon Prime Video.

'The Trial of the Chicago 7' Film Review: Aaron Sorkin's Vital Drama Delivers Both Talk and Action .
On paper, "The Trial of the Chicago 7" feels like it could be a bit of Aaron Sorkin's greatest hits. The drama, which hits select theaters on Friday before heading to Netflix on Oct. 16, has lots of the qualities you can find in previous works that he's written: politics ("The American President," "The West Wing," "Charlie Wilson's War"), legal scenes ("A Few Good Men," "The Social Network") and, most of all, smart people talking fast (pretty much everything Sorkin has done).
