Ben Carson has proven he’s the donkey of the day week with his idiotic ill-informed rehashing of slavery. But, maybe not all hope is lost for Mr. Carson; just maybe all he needs is a block of free time and an advanced copy of the new season of Underground.

See, it’s pretty clear that Benny Boy missed the first season of the hit WGN America show because had he seen it he would have known slaves didn’t just “work hard for less.” He would have been well-versed in the rigorous, back-breaking, FREE labor that the slaves were FORCED to perform. But he would have also seen the resilient and courageous efforts from those slaves to break free. He would have undoubtedly been hooked on Underground and would not have made the gaffe he made yesterday.

But not all hope is lost. The second season of Underground premieres on Wednesday, March 8th at 10/9c and this time around it focuses on how the women of the Underground Railroad were forces to be reckoned with. These women were soldiers, tireless fighters — something we’re sure Mr. Carson probably isn’t aware of. Season 2 will follow Harriet Tubman, Rosalee and other fearless females as they run, fight and free slaves across the south. Ben should watch it, and so should you.

Check out our interviews with the cast below and get a look into how this season of Underground will leave you on the edge of your seat each and every week!

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
