Tell us about your character, Dick. He’s an academic in a small town in Texas, and he’s kind of a big deal—a big fish in a small pond. He’s sort of a self-created cowboy. This is a comedy, which is quite different from your last show, The Following. Yes, that was very tense— fights and violence and gore. Still, for a comedy this is amazingly emotional and intense. I like that better than set-up jokes.
How do you like doing TV compared to movies? Television is a great place now. All the great writers are there, and most of the content I’m absorbing is on TV. But I’ll never stop doing movies! —ALE RUSSIAN

open to new things. Do you think your gymnastics experience will help you with your dancing? Our gymnastics routines are choreographed, but this is something totally different. I did take ballet when I was a little girl, but I don’t really remember it. And it was nothing like the training I’ll get now. At 16 years old, you’ll have to balance high school and the competition. Will that be hard? I had a pretty harsh training schedule leading up to the Olympics. Through that, I learned how to fit in school. I’d do it over the weekends and at home in between workouts, so I think I’ll be fine. Any nerves about being judged for your moves? I want to make Len Goodman smile. I am just itching to get out there and have him say something good. If you can make the tough people smile, that’s when you know you’ve made it.

She’s inconsolable because she can’t have a child. Then—wait, what’s that out there bobbing on the waves? A boat, and in it a baby! They keep the kid, and they suffer for it. But both stars play against the material with a restraint—a firm, touching dignity—that casts a soft glow over the froth and suds. (Sept. 2, PG-13)

Glover is Earn Marks, a Princeton dropout who finds a golden ticket: He’ll manage his cousin (Brian Tyree Henry), an overnight rap star. This new series, which Glover created, has both hard-edged humor about the lives of young black men and, from time to time, a nice flakiness. Stuck in a potential altercation involving a transgender woman, all Earn can think to offer is unhelpful jargon: “Sexuality is a spectrum.” (FX, Sept. 6, 10 p.m.)

COMEDY Among the oddball constellation of women surrounding
Louie C.K. on Louie, Pamela Adlon was a low-flying comet: rumbling, giving off an angry heat and destined for messy collisions. Things, which she developed with the comedian, is a near-perfect vehicle: The story of a struggling actress, divorced with three children, it feels casually lived in, with a bleakly funny sense of how a day can go wrong. Adlon’s gasp of horror when she comes home to find that her kids have trashed the place is arguably the first time in comedy history anyone has made this cliché feel real.

DRAMA This first night of this miniseries about the creation of the iconic motorcycle sticks mostly to the nuts and bolts of design (as it should), starting with the pedal. It’s also good about business, money and fire-in-the-belly drive—of people, not just engines. This is a satisfyingly American saga of the early 20th century. (Discovery, Sept. 5, 9 p.m.)

Britney Spears, Glory POP Spears is a pop
goddess—and, like any such divinity, is capable of rebirth, no matter how many complications her life and career suffer over the decades. So it is with her glorious ninth album, which is filled with infectious bangers: She puts a womanizer in his place on “Liar,” begs for satisfaction in one song (“Love Me Down”), then offers it in another (“Do You Wanna Come Over?”). She can be forgiven the self-referential nuggets (including her squeal of “Oops!” just before an onslaught of bass on “Clumsy”). This is her strongest album in a decade.

As the king of cocaine, the terrific Wagner Moura can’t be toppled DRAMA In season 2, Moura’s performance as the late Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar remains magnetically ordinary. With his drooping mustache, drooping stomach and blankly morose face, he could be a minor employee in Walter White’s Breaking Bad empire. But that fast-moving AMC series didn’t have time to deal with the paunchy banality of evil. Not so here. We return to find Escobar in hiding, being chauffeured around in the trunk of a car but still rubbing out enemies without compunction. He tells a journalist, “I would say that I’m a happy man.” By the end, the kingpin— heavier, bearded, and hunted—loses his complacency. (Launches Sept. 2)

Frank Ocean, Blonde
R&B Good things come to
those who wait for Frank Ocean. Dropping unannounced a year past its promised due date, his follow-up to 2012’s Channel Orange is sprawlingly ambitious, the work of an artist who put all that extra time back into plumbing the depths of his record collection and, while he was at it, his soul. Blonde touches on everything from Beyoncé to the Beatles, from personal isolation to sexuality and even mortality. It’s uncategorizable (that includes the title: The album art excludes the “e” from the streaming version, Blonde). And unforgettable.

GETTING BETTER WITH HER HELP “Chyna definitely motivates me,” says Rob (with his fiancée at their Calabasas, Calif., home Aug. 23). “Being with her got me over the insecurity of being out in public.”

LOOKING FORWARD TO FATHERHOOD “My only goal is to be a really good dad and to give my child a happy childhood,” says Rob.
His last name is synonymous with life lived in front of cameras. But for more than two years Rob Kardashian was a recluse, disappearing from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the reality TV juggernaut that made his clan famous. While his mogul mother, Kris, 60, and siblings hugged the spotlight, the 29-year-old refused to attend the glitzy 2014 wedding of sister Kim, 35, and barely left the house he shared with Khloé, 32, the sibling with whom he had the tightest bond. Little wonder those who rabidly follow the Hollywood family wondered if Rob, after years of the relentless exposure required of a Kardashian, had become the first dynasty member to crack. In fact, Rob was privately struggling with his self-image. Sources told People the sock designer was depressed and adrift; he gained more than 100 lbs. in seclusion. Ashamed, he rebuffed loved ones’ attempts at (on-camera) interventions and developed type 2 diabetes. When tabloids speculated he was a drug addict, he withdrew even further. “I wasn’t happy in my own skin,” Rob says now, sitting down for his first interview in years at his home in Calabasas, Calif. “I missed out on so many things.” Those things include very public chapters in the Kardashian saga, such as Caitlyn Jenner’s coming out as a trans woman and the overdose of Rob’s best friend, Khloé’s estranged husband Lamar Odom, last year. But in early 2016 Rob decided he was ready to return to public life and did so in the way only a Kardashian can, announcing he was engaged to former stripper Blac Chyna (née Angela White), 28,

THE FINAL STRAW “I have made the decision to separate from my husband,” Huma (with Weiner in 2015 and with Hillary on April 11) said in a statement the day after the new scandal broke.

hose closest to Huma Abedin had started to notice a shift in recent months. The top Hillary Clinton aide and mom of 4-year-old Jordan was casually referring to her husband of six years, former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, as “Jordan’s dad” rather than “Anthony,” as she always had before. And while she and Weiner continued to share their Manhattan apartment, she’d stopped wearing her wedding and engagement rings. Says a close friend: “A separation

has been brewing for some time.” On Aug. 29, after what she called “long and painful consideration,” Abedin made it official, saying in a statement, “Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son.” The announcement came a day after the New York Post exposed yet another Weiner sexting scandal, his third in five years. In one of the photos he allegedly sent—to a woman he told the Post he’d been “friends” with “for some time”— Weiner, 52, is pictured in his under-
wear in bed next to Jordan. The photos were the last straw for Abedin, 41, who stood by her husband during the first sexting debacle, in 2011, and again in 2013. (Both scandals were agonizingly chronicled in the recent documentary Weiner.) Why did she stay as long as she did? “Huma has a very strong moral character,” her longtime friend Rory Tahari told People in 2013. “She never wanted Jordan to say to her, ‘Why didn’t you do everything you could to help Dad?’!”

Endless Summer “We’ve had our ups and downs,” says Love (second from bottom, with his bandmates, including Dennis Wilson, top left, in 1964). “But our music has always transcended the negatives and the hardships.”
The Beach Boys music was synonymous with sunshine, surfing and endless summer. Formed by California brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson along with their cousin Mike Love and high school pal Al Jardine, their vocal harmonies and creative arrangements sold more than 100 million records, influenced generations of rock bands and singer-songwriters and earned them induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But beneath all their success ran a dark undercurrent as various bandmates battled drugs and personal demons. In his new memoir Good Vibrations, to be released on Sept. 13, founding Beach Boy Love, 75, shares the story of the band’s highs and lows, including the stunning friendship that Dennis Wilson forged with ex-con and commune leader Charles Manson. In August 1969 Manson orchestrated a brutal killing spree in Los Angeles that left seven victims dead, including Sharon Tate, the 8-month-pregnant actress wife of director Roman Polanski. Today those dark days are decades behind Love. He and his wife, Jacquelyne, 51, split time between homes in Lake Tahoe and Southern California in between performances—the Beach Boys performed 172 concerts last year—and he credits twice-a-day meditation for his energy and positive outlook. “I never lose sight of the overwhelming positivity of our music,” says Love, who has eight children, ages 20 to 55. “I still see it every night in the faces of the people who come to our shows.” In an exclusive excerpt from his new book, Love recalls how the band’s entanglement with Manson began and how the murders haunted his cousin Dennis, who drowned in Marina del Rey, Calif., on Dec. 28, 1983. Because Dennis had allowed Manson into

seems inexplicable, but in reality Manson tapped into parts of Dennis that make it all too explainable. It starts with the positives about my cousin. To his credit, Dennis was generous to a fault. He really didn’t give a damn about cars or clothes or anything of material value, and was glad to give away what he had. The other thing about Dennis, and this is the negative, was that his appetite for sex was insatiable. For Dennis, too much was never enough. So it was completely in character for Dennis, in the spring of 1968, to pick up two young women hitchhiking on Sunset Strip and to bring them back to his house. Dennis mentioned his involvement with [Transcendental Meditation founder] Maharishi, and the women said they too had a guru, named Charlie. Manson and his “girls,” as they were called, moved to Los Angeles at the end of 1967, the better for him to fulfill his destiny as a rock star.

niture, clothes, guitars, stereo equipment, gold records — they took most everything of Dennis’s that wasn’t nailed down. They also totaled his Mercedes. By summer’s end, Dennis figured he had lost about $100,000 to his roommates, and even for him, that was too much. Instead of demanding that Manson and his girls leave, Dennis just vacated the premises. Manson decamped to Spahn Ranch but continued his association with Dennis, whom he still needed to launch his career; and Dennis, through some combination of loyalty and gullibility, continued to visit Manson with producers in tow. Dennis liked one of Manson’s songs, called “Cease to Exist,” whose lyrics he tweaked. I didn’t think much of it, but the Beach Boys changed the tune some more and recorded it as “Never Learn Not to Love.” Dennis took the credit for what was essentially Manson’s music and lyrics. The song appeared on the B side of a 45, and we performed it onThe Mike Douglas Show in early 1969.

nant actress Sharon Tate and four other victims at the house on Cielo Drive. The following night they killed Rosemary and Leno LaBianca at their home a few miles away. Neither Dennis nor I nor anyone associated with the Beach Boys had any idea that Manson was involved in these murders. In November, three months after the murders, the case finally broke. The authorities promptly contacted Dennis, and front-page stories soon appeared about the Beach Boys’ connection to the crazed cult leader who allegedly masterminded these slayings.

Dennis had introduced Manson to Terry Melcher, who by 1968 had produced the Byrds’ covers of !“Mr. Tambourine Man” and “Turn! Turn!

Manson was also in the car one day when Dennis dropped Terry off at his rented home at 10050 Cielo Drive, at the top of a steep hill in the Benedict Canyon area. Terry lived there with his girlfriend, the actress Candice Bergen. Perhaps as a favor to Dennis, Terry went to Spahn Ranch twice in the late spring of 1969 to hear Manson sing. Terry was Manson’s last hope, but he was unimpressed and had to tell Manson that he couldn’t help him. Manson wouldn’t stand for it. Consumed by rage and seeking revenge against a corrupt society, he convinced his followers that the apocalypse was

A LEGEND LOOKS BACK DAZZLING. DEFIANT. DIFFICULT. DUNAWAY. AT 75, A FIERCE BEAUTY REFLECTS ON A LIFE AS BIG AS THE MOVIES By ELIZABETH McNEIL
hen she first saw herself on the screen in 1967’s Bonnie and Clyde, a 26-year-old Faye Dunaway wondered, “God, do I really look like that?” And not in a good way. “I didn’t think my face was beautiful,” the Oscar winner says today. “I guess I found a lot wrong with it.” Even those stunning cheekbones? “Well, the cheekbones were okay.” Five decades later that Florida farm girl’s aristocratic bone structure still sets a dizzyingly high bar for Hollywood beauty. But while her haunting eyes, cut-glass accent and sophisticated sex appeal seduced a generation, Dunaway was never a mere face. Her ferocious intelligence elevated movies such as Three Days of the Condor, Network and Chinatown. Overnight, she became one of the signature stars of Hollywood’s most revolutionary era. “When I was discovered, everything Photographs by ART STREIBER

And sad, deeply sad.” LIFE AS A MOM Dunaway with O’Neill and their son Liam (ca. 1985) on his birthday. “He’s very smart,” she says of Liam, who manages his father’s vast photo archive.
HER RISKY NETWORK ROLE Dunaway was advised not to take on the 1976 role of the ruthless and ratings-obsessed TV producer, who, she says, “wanted desperately to be human.” She won an Oscar, but her costar Peter Finch’s posthumous win for Best Actor made the night “bittersweet.”

She’d like to date again. “I would if I could find the right person,” she says, though she calls herself “a loner.” She finds inspiration in her friend Jane Fonda, whom she calls “a wonderful role model. She is doing so much more beyond her acting talent.” And she has made peace, mostly, with getting older. “It’s not age that makes a life,” she says. “It’s what you do with it.”

it was a very good life.” Born in Bascom, Fla., the daughter of an Army sergeant and a stay-athome mom who later became a secretary, she was days out of college when she made her Broadway debut. Four years later she was chosen by director Arthur Penn and producer and costar Warren Beatty to star in Bonnie and Clyde. “She could hit the ball across the net,” says Beatty, “and she had an intelligence and a strength that made her both powerful and romantic.” After quickly losing 30 lbs. by wearing a weight belt and “dieting the whole movie,” she says, she transformed herself into the slinky moll in the beret and bias-cut skirts.

MAGICIAN CRISS ANGEL
WHEN HIS 2-YEAR-OLD WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LEUKEMIA, THE SHOWMAN FOUND A CAUSE: FIGHTING PEDIATRIC CANCER By PATRICK GOMEZ
fter watching his 2-yearold son Johnny suffer through 10 months of spinal taps, blood transfusions and chemotherapy, magician Criss Angel had a special treat in mind: a trip to Disneyland. “Johnny would watch all the cartoons with Mickey Mouse while he was going through treatment,” says Angel, 48, whose son was diagnosed with the most common childhood cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which affects the bone marrow and has a five-year survival rate of 90 percent. “When he saw Mickey standing in front of him, the emotion of that moment was unbelievable,” Angel says. “It was pure love.” That joyful moment was long overdue. Last October Angel first learned Johnny, then 20 months old, was sick. The news came shortly after he and his wife, singer-songwriter Shaunyl Benson, 25, had decided to separate after a year of marriage. As Benson prepared to move back to her native Australia with Johnny, she and Angel noticed something was wrong with their son. “He’d have fevers and nosebleeds,” says Angel. “Tylenol helped, Photographs by CORAL VON ZUMWALT

DISCOVERING HER FAMOUS BIRTH SURNAME, BRICKER WRITES IN EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE, WAS ‘LIKE FINDING OUT I WAS A PRINCESS’ I was six the first time I saw Dominique Moceanu on TV. It felt like a lightbulb went off in my head: Aha! I want to be like her. She was tiny; I was tiny. She was fiery; I was fiery. She was born to Romanian parents; I knew I was born to Romanian parents. We even looked alike, with the same tan skin, huge dark eyes, and thick jet-black hair. I was drawn to her but couldn’t say why. .!.!.!I always knew I was adopted, and that fact didn’t trouble me much [but] my parents knew eventually one day I’d get curious and start digging. That day came when I was sixteen. My friend Kassi was adopted and had found out her biological last name. It seemed so cool and mysterious—a piece to a puzzle. “So,” I said to my mom. “Do you know what my last name was when I was born?” “Now, Jennifer,” she began. “You’re never gonna believe this.” She laid out on the table all the documents she’d kept. “Your biological last name is Moceanu.” I knew. I just knew. On some level, I had always known. On the outside I must have seemed eerily calm, but inside I was freaking out. “Dominique’s my sister.” It all made sense now. My parents, of course, had put two and two together several years ago. While watching the Olympics with me, they saw the 14-year-old gymnast I was fixated on—and the names of her parents, who were watching in the audience. My mom had seen their signatures on my adoption papers. After four years of failed attempts to contact Dominique, Jen was able to get the gymnast’s home address in Ohio in 2007. I copied pictures of myself from when I was a baby all the way to my current age, then crafted a carefully written letter that took forever to get just right. Finally, I packaged up my heart and soul in a big manila envelope and sent it out on a hope and a prayer. I waited for two weeks, truly the longest two weeks of my life. I remember I was talking to my neighbor at my front door. “I’m going to go check the mail,” she said. “Do you want me to grab yours too?” I said, “Sure, thanks.” She returned with a Christmas card. When I opened the envelope, a letter signed with Dominique’s signature fell out of the card. In that moment, my heart stopped!.!.!. I’ll never forget when I got to the middle of the letter and read Dominique’s words: “You’re about to be an auntie!” I knew right then and there that she had accepted me into her family.
BEFORE HER TIME “My retirement plan was to write a book when I have gray hair,” says Bricker. To be able to tell her story now “is such a blessing.”

“My parents said, ‘We’re teaching her to be independent, not codependent,’” Bricker recalls. So when Bricker announced at age 8 that she wanted to be a gymnast, her parents let her loose on the trampoline and watched her collect trophies in power tumbling. They also sat with their daughter as she was glued to TV coverage of the 1996 Olympics, mesmerized by the United States’ star gymnast Dominque Moceanu, to whom Bricker bore an uncanny resemblance. “Jennifer just doted on Dominque,” says Gerald. “Halfway through the Olympics, she said to us, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if we found out we were related?’” When the time came for her parents to share that Moceanu was Jen’s biological sister (see book excerpt, left)—Bricker met even that bombshell with her usual pluck, recalls Gerald: “Sharon said to Jennifer, ‘You better sit down,’ and she said, ‘Mom, I’m always sitting down!’” After meeting in Cleveland in 2008, the long-lost sisters have become fast friends, and Bricker has bonded too with younger sister Christina, 27, who grew up with Dominique and now works in retail banking.

The lawsuit claims that Bayer Corporation, Barr Laboratories, Inc., Hoechst Marion Roussel, Inc., Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and The Rugby Group, Inc.

Bricker never met her father, Dmitry, who was behind her placement in foster care; he died in 2008. But she is open to developing a relationship with her biological mother, Camilia. “That’s taking a bit longer,” she says. “She has some of her own demons to kinda work through.” For Bricker there’s only the future. After graduating from Oblong High School, she has built a stage career as an aerialist (she opened for Britney Spears’s Circus Tour) and now hopes to “flip things upside down and do some groundbreaking stuff”—maybe in the beauty industry or with a turn on Dancing with the Stars. And to her credits as an author and motivational speaker, she’d also like to add wife and mother. “I want the whole life—getting married, having kids, adopting a couple more.” And no matter how annoyed she gets by hauling a wheelchair around (for the places where walking on her hands would be just “gross”), she never wishes she had legs. “I’m able to inspire people,” she says. “And how could I do that if I wasn’t exactly how I am? It’d be so selfish to have legs.”

ARape Survivor’s Fight for Justice AMANDA NGUYEN
After being raped in college, the Harvard grad and aspiring astronaut, 24, is now fighting for survivors’ rights in every part of the country
PROFESSION White House liaison, aspiring astronaut LIVES Washington, D.C.
Recognizing a Broken System
September 12, 2016 PEOPLE
Everyone needs them, and it shouldn’t depend on geography.
I founded Rise (risenow.us), which advocates for legal protections for sexual-assault survivors. We drafted the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, and in February it was introduced to the U.S. Senate. It now has to pass the House. It’s been incredible. Thousands of people have written in from all 50 states, talking about how much this bill means to them. I want people to understand the issue and support the bill, but equally
as important, I want people to understand that you can engage with your system and be a part of a change.
Shooting for the Stars
I went to Harvard for my undergraduate [degree] and studied government and astrophysics. When I was 18, NASA decided to take a chance on me. Despite my age they decided what mattered were my ideas. NASA is all about achieving the impossible. I want to be a mission specialist and discover an exoplanet. Where do I see myself in 10 years? On Mars, I hope! —CAITLIN KEATING
DEFENDING HER RIGHTS If Congress passes Nguyen’s Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill, the law will mandate that all victims of such crimes know their rights, can get information on their rape kits and have access to counseling.
BRET HARTMAN; INSET: SENATOR CHARLES E. GRASSLEY’S OFFICE
During college in October 2013, I was raped. I still remember the sun coming up after I left the hospital because I had been in there for hours. I felt so alone—I didn’t even know where or whom to turn to for help. In Massachusetts there is a six-month deadline to report the crime before your rape kit is destroyed, even though the statute of limitations to press charges is 15 years. So every six months I still have to fight for my kit. I started researching what my rights were, and I found out a handful of states have rights in place so this doesn’t happen.

Harry Potter tale
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterston
Oscar winner Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander in this Potter spinoff written by J.K. Rowling. Back in 1926 New York City, Scamander is a magizoologist studying Nifflers, Thunderbirds and other critters. “The world [Rowling] created is indelibly marked in all of our minds,” says Redmayne. “There were moments when you’d look down onset and see thousands of extras dressed up and so many of these extraordinary cars, and you feel immersed in it. That’s when you get goosebumps.”
Why did you sign on to this thriller about an accountant who keeps the books for criminals? The idea of the world’s sexiest, most dangerous accountant is certainly the kind of delicious dichotomy that makes for a great movie. How was working
alongside Ben? He’s very smart and very funny and is definitely a practical actor. He comes to work to get his job done and to make the best movie possible but is still really normal sauce offcamera.
Are you a math whiz? Oh my God, no, it’s so embarrassing. My mom is an accountant, so I gave her the script and was like, “Can you please help me understand what is happening in this movie?’” Kendrick plays a clerk working with accountant Affleck. Redmayne chases magical creatures in Beasts.

Benedict & Tilda have SUPERPOWERS Doctor Strange Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton
Tom Hanks is playing SULLY Brace for impact. Hanks suits up as as Capt. Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger—the U.S. Airways pilot who made a heroic emergency landing on the Hudson River in 2009. “He really embodied him and obviously spent a lot of time with Sully,” says costar Aaron Eckhart, who plays copilot Jeffrey Skiles. “He nailed the precision of Capt. Sullenberger. It was impressive.” Sully himself (inset) regularly SEPT. 9
Sully Starring: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart
visited the set of the Clint Eastwood-directed film, which depicts the hair-raising landing and the subsequent investigation that threatened to destroy the pilot’s career. Filming on the Hudson was an emotional experience for the cast. “We had all of the actual boats that were used in the rescue, a lot of the same people who were there,” Eckhart says. “It was quite moving to hear them tell their tale and to get the feel of what it was like.”
Strange things are afoot for Cumberbatch, who dons the swirling cape of the surgeon turned mystical superhero in this big-screen conjuring of the cult Marvel character. Along for the magical mystery tour is Swinton, playing a being called the Ancient One who serves as his dimension-hopping guru. Swinton says it wasn’t hard to fall under her “delightful” costar’s spell while relishing the chance to hop aboard the film’s “one-size-fits-all psychedelic tripping.” After all, she says, her character is “a consummate master in magic and wisdom who fights in a silk hoodie with glowing fans. How could anybody resist?”
