How Marvel-ous! The Top 10 “Avengers” Movies

Back in the day, when the world of blockbuster franchises was new, picking your favorite was easy: Empire, Return of the Jedi, or the first one. Today, it’s a little tougher. The interconnected stories of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe form the second highest-grossing film series of all time (and watch out, Harry Potter, they’re catching up!). With a separate solo series for each A-list Avenger and two focusing on broader line-ups from the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang, this franchise is expanding in every direction.

6 Questions with “Rectify” Star Luke Kirby (Jon Stern)

Luke Kirby, who plays Jon Stern on RECTIFY, talks about the lawyer quote that helps him get into character and his foraging hobby.

Q: Jon’s job seems to be about managing personalities and playing politics as much as it is about knowing the law. Does that make the gig more fun for you?

A: Yeah, I have a kin for that kind of thing. I’m drawn to or intrigued by politics. I’m not the most litigious person, I didn’t study in law, but it’s very revealing and there’s a ton of stuff out there on this. It’s an ongoing education for me.
