The world's tallest roller coaster is coming to Orlando, Florida, in 2017, but you don't have to wait until then to get a peek at the ride.

"The Skyscraper" coaster will take thrill-seekers on a wild ride around a 535-foot-tall tower. It will be located at Skyplex complex in Orlando

Earliest this week, the park's developer, Wallack Holdings, released a video rendering of the roller coaster's design at the 2014 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) trade show. Check it out, above

The world's tallest roller coaster is currently Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. It is 456 feet tall. Read more...

Comedy Central retitles Larry Wilmore's show, slots it for January start

LOS ANGELES — The Minority Report With Larry Wilmore was a laudably clever title, but it won't be affixed to the Daily Show correspondent's Jan. 19 debut in place of Stephen Colbert, who's departing for CBS as David Letterman's replacement on Late Show.

Comedy Central announced on Thursday that instead, it will be called The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, along with that premiere date.

Wilmore's show, announced in May, will take Colbert's old 11:30 p.m. weeknight slot after The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Besides dovetailing better with the title of Stewart's show, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore also steers clear of a TV adaptation of the movie Minority Report that CBS — a sister company to Comedy Central — is developing. Read more...

It's now much easier to share public tweets via DMs on Twitter

Feed-tw Feed-fb

Today in features you may not have known you wanted: Twitter is letting you directly share public tweets through its private direct messaging system.

If you copy and paste a tweet's URL into a direct message (DM), it will embed itself in the message for easier viewing. You can also hit the "..." icon under a tweet and select "Share via Direct Message."

Previously, if you tried to paste the URL of a tweet into a DM, it would show up as a link. Though the new feature isn't a huge development, it saves you a click when privately sharing something in your Twitter feed; the update works on Twitter's web client, iOS and Android apps, and TweetDeck for Chrome, Windows and web.

18-year-old artist painted Morgan Freeman, and it looks like a photo

This is not a professional photograph of Morgan Freeman. It's a drawing by 18-year-old artist Jack Ede.

Ede posts step-by-step updates of his portrait work on Instagram. The latest is a hyperrealistic sketch of Morgan Freeman. Ede says that he chooses his subjects based on high-resolution photographs, so he was thrilled when he came across one of Freeman where he could examine every detail, down to the actor's pores. (For what it's worth, this is not the first hyperrealistic Morgan Freeman portrait we've seen.)

Check out the progress of the portrait below, and in the background, imagine Freeman's voice narrating a documentary about a young artist's life. Read more...
