Atlanta’s Storm Reid headlines new thriller "Missing":

You’ve heard the old filmmaking phrase: "Lights … camera … action!" But the new thriller "Missing" takes place almost entirely on a computer screen, which means for star Storm Reid, the lights, camera, and action all looked a little bit different.

"We were shooting on computers and watches and phones, and it was a lot of technical hurdles that I had to overcome," laughs the Atlanta native.

Reid stars as June, a tech-savvy teen desperately searching for her mother (Nia Long), who goes missing during a vacation to Colombia. 

"She’s an icon in her own right, and to be able to work with somebody that you’ve essentially grown up watching is very cool," says Reid of Long.  "She was so sweet and made me feel so supported and loved and uplifted me on set all the time. So, it was great working with her."

"Missing" is just the latest high-profile project in Reid’s career, following lauded turns in "A Wrinkle in Time" and "Euphoria." And although her busy career takes her around the world, Reid says Atlanta will always be home.

"I grew up in Dunwoody by way of Decatur, and I spent a lot of time in both places," Reid says. "Obviously, I don’t live here anymore, but it’s always going to be home and I plan to have a place here in the future."

"Missing" is playing in theaters nationwide now — click here for more information on the film.

Hollywood's legends headline romantic comedy "Maybe I Do": 

Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, and William H. Macy.

Most people would be star-struck seeing any one of these legendary Hollywood icons. So, even though she’s a movie star in own right, imagine how Emma Roberts felt walking onto the set of the new romantic comedy "Maybe I Do," which stars all four.

"I was coming to set so overly prepared because, hello, we’re working with Diane Keaton and Susan Sarandon! So, I was like, ‘If there’s a blooper, it’s not going to be because of me,’" laughs Roberts.

Roberts and Luke Bracey — who previously co-starred in the Netflix hit "Holidate" — team up again as a young couple trying to plan out their future in "Maybe I Do," which hits theatres Friday, Jan. 27. Of course, any good romantic comedy needs some conflict, and in this case, it comes when the couple’s parents meet for dinner and realize they’re all far more intimately acquainted than they previously realized.

For Gere and Sarandon, Maybe I Do is something of a reunion; the actors previously starred together in 2004’s "Shall We Dance?" and 2012’s "Arbitrage." 

"We both started our careers as teenagers. We’ve known each other for a long time," says Gere. "There’s only a level of actors of our age and experience who do this kind of thing. It’s not a large group of people. So, I think it’s a built-in respect and comfort level that we have with our compatriots in this world."

Adds Sarandon, "I mean, I couldn’t think of anybody that could do this part the way Richard did. He’s like Cary Grant."

"Maybe I Do" was written and directed by Michael Jacobs; to hear more from the stars, click the video player in this article.

Food & Lifestyle expert Chadwick Boyd gives tips on how to cook frozen fish in a flash: Did you know you can cook frozen fish directly in a pan? No, you do not need to thaw it! It saves so much time and no thawing mess to clean up! I cook fish from frozen nearly every time I eat fish. It is ideal when you are really pressed for time, but want a meal that’s flavorful and fresh. Any frozen fish will work, really. I prefer wild frozen halibut or cod, but any meaty frozen fish, including salmon, will work. I like to serve the fish with a quick wilted romaine and cherry tomato salad as well. It cooks in a couple of minutes and still has a little fresh crunchiness.


For the fish

  • 1 medium-size lemon, zested
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 pound frozen halibut or cod fillets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

For the Wilted Romaine & Cherry Tomatoes 

  • 8 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 romaine heart, bottom trimmed and cut into quarters long ways and then in half cross ways
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Rinse any noticeable ice of fish fillets under cold water, then pat both sides dry with a clean dish cloth or paper towel.
  2. Add the lemon zest to a small bowl. Place in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute to dry it out. Mix in the thyme, salt and pepper.
  3. Heat two tablespoons of the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Place the fillets in the pan and cook 5 to 8 minutes, or until the bottom is very lightly brown. Using a fish spatula, flip the fillets. Evenly sprinkle the tops with the lemon pepper mixture. Cover and continue cooking another 3 to 5 minutes, or until the fish is just opaque. Transfer immediately to a plate and cover with foil.
  4. Bring the heat down to medium and let the pan cool for 1 minute. Add in the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Stir in the garlic slices and cook 1-2 minutes until they start to turn a light golden color. Scrape the bottom of the skillet with the spatula to release any of the brown bits from the fish.
  5. Add the romaine and tomatoes to the hot pan. Cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the romaine is lightly wilted and the tomatoes are soft.  Season with the salt and pepper.
  6. Transfer the romaine and tomatoes to a medium-size platter. Place the fish on top. Squeeze with some lemon juice, if desired. Serve.
