1st look promo: Don't mess with 'Bonnie and Clyde'

A&E Networks has release a first look promo for its upcoming "Bonnie & Clyde" that shows the gun-toting duo falling in love, robbing banks and getting sexy. All to the tune, "Bang, Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down."

The four-hour miniseries will air at 8 p.m. CT Dec. 8-9 simultaneously on Lifetime, A&E and History. Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger star as  Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, the outlaws who terrorized the Midwest and South during the Depression. Oddly, the promo says "introducing Holliday Grainger," even though she has "The Borgias" and other credits to her name.

Holly Hunter plays Bonnie’s mother, Emma Parker, and William Hurt stars as Frank Hamer, the Texas Ranger pursuing the Barrow gang. Other cast members include Sarah Hyland as Blanche Barrow, Clyde’s sister-in-law; Lane Garrison as Clyde’s brother Buck; Elizabeth Reaser as P.J. Lane, a writer tracking the gang; Austin Hebert as Ted Hinton, another lawman after the gang; and Dale Dickey as Cummie Barrow, Clyde’s mother.
 
From A&E: Bonnie & Clyde retells the fascinating tale of the legendary couple whose crime spree enraptured the American public. Rumored to have a sixth-sense to see events before they happened, Barrow was always able to stay one step ahead of the law as they escaped capture time and again. His one blind spot was Parker, who was intent on becoming famous and fed on the alluring media attention, pushing Barrow to commit riskier and more dangerous crimes to generate bigger headlines and make them the most famous criminals of the modern era.

    History, Lifetime and A&E will simulcast a two-night miniseries about notorious criminals Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow later this year, but I thought it'd be fun to show the "Bonnie & Clyde" played by Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch to the real deals.

    Rejoice! Adele's new album is rumored to arrive this fall

    There's a fire starting in my heart and it's making me realize it's been kind of a while since Adele released an album. Her last full-length "21" dropped in 2011 and I barely remember that year it feels so long ago. But now, there's some good news to fill our recently Adele-less lives and it's...

This is a guy who, last year at a charity gala benefiting AIDS...
