'HARRY POTTER' STARS SAY FINAL SCENE WAS FOR THE AGES



No other scene in the eight “Harry Potter” films created more angst for filmmakers than the epilogue of the final movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” a movie that last week crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide box office.


There were no chained dragons, hairy hippogriffs or crackling magic energies in the sequence — it’s a few minutes of quiet dialogue between parents and their children in a train station — but the anxiety of it all was so smothering that the franchise’s star, Daniel Radcliffe, at one point wanted to sit out the scene.

“I think they should do it with older actors and just leave us out of the scene,” Radcliffe said two years ago during a quiet moment on the stone-floor movie set where he has spent half of his working life and half of his life working. “If that’s what’s going to look best that’s what we should so. It’s too important that the ending is done right.”

(Needless to say, this is an article you shouldn’t read if you haven’t seen the film and want to remain in the dark as you walk into theaters.)

Talay told me: “Christina gave us a personal brief. It was like a letter saying what she wanted to achieve with her next album.

“She wants this album to be the one which touches people and reflects all the personal experiences she’s been through in the last few years, like motherhood and divorce. “Basically she wants songs that are as big as Beautiful.


“Christina wants to make another Stripped and sees Adele as her new inspiration."

Ke$ha about to slay in Charlotte



Ke$ha aims her glitter cannons at Charlotte

Ke$ha's been accused of using too much Auto-Tune, of being a poor man's Lady Gaga, of corrupting her young fans with foul language.

But you can't accuse her of being boring. And you can't accuse the 24-year-old pop star of being lazy; she works every bit as hard as she plays (and she plays very hard).

The hitmaker behind earworms such as "Tik Tok" and "We R Who We R," Ke$ha is now 60 shows into her "Get $leazy" tour, which launched in February and has blitzed through Australia, Canada, Europe and the U.S. She played the Fillmore club in Charlotte April 19, and Wednesday will return to take the stage at a much bigger arena: the Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre.

We spoke by telephone with Ke$ha last month about her continuing fascination with glitter, the age-appropriateness of her concerts, and her very, very hardcore fans.

Of course, Lucille Ball made us laugh. Think of the grape stomping. The chocolate factory. The Swiss cheese disguised in a baby blanket.

She even made us cry. Remember when she told Ricky they were having a baby?

Saturday marks what would have been the 100th birthday of everybody's favorite redhead, arguably the 20th century's most popular clown, unquestionably the Queen of Television.

And, as she herself well knew, given the hours of I Love Lucy reruns that kept generations glued to their TV sets, she was "the world's babysitter."

Interview with The CW President Mark Pedowitz

 

http://i.imgur.com/wazsp.jpg


As part of the TCA Press Tour presentation for The CW, President Mark Pedowitz took some time to talk about returning faces for the Fall, increased episode orders for a number of their already-established shows, the interest in developing other DC Comics properties now that Smallville has ended, and the possibility of remakes and re-boots of previous projects. Here are the most interesting points:

  • One of the big goals of The CW is for more original programming, so that their TV shows don’t take as long of a break between episodes around the holiday season.
  • The new Fall season will kick off on Monday, September 12th with a special on Lady Gaga.
  • The CW is thrilled to be the home of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel Bilson’s return to television, with Ringer (premiering on September 13th) and Hart of Dixie (premiering on September 26th), respectively.
  • There will be more original episodes this season for returning series Supernatural, Nikita, Gossip Girl and 90210, and the final season for One Tree Hill is currently set for 13 episodes in mid-season.
  • This upcoming season is not intended to be the final season of Supernatural. They are hoping to keep the series going, but will evaluate it, one season at a time.
  • Mark Pedowitz is a big believer in keeping casts together and hopes that the network will be able to do just that with the cast of Gossip Girl, even though they have busy film careers.
  • After the success of Smallville, the network is looking at possible DC Comics superheroes to develop for series next year.
  • They are very receptive to new projects that Tom Welling may be developing, either as the star or producer.

Justin and Selena Split Over Troubled Celebrity Friends

Photobucket

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are said to have split over the 'Baby' singer's troubled celebrity pals.

The young couple allegedly ended their relationship after Bieber attended a recent Gomez concert in Florida with R&B star Sean Kingston, who was jailed at the age of 11 for breaking and entering.

The Wizards Of Waverly Place star has also ordered the 17-year-old to avoid his showbiz friend Lil Wayne, who holds several gun and drug possession charges, and his 'Next To You' collaborator Chris Brown, who infamously assaulted ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

"She didn't want him to crash her gig," a source told The Sun. "They had a huge row and said it was good they were having time apart while she was on tour."

The insider also claimed that Bieber had been reduced to tears during the heated arguments, adding: "It's hard seeing a little 17-year-old crying and saying he loves her."

Gomez claimed this week that she tries to keep her relationship with Bieber as "normal as possible".

Michael C Hall looks to cats for comfort after divorce



Michael C. Hall is recovering from his marriage split by spending time with his two cats.

The 'Dexter' star - who broke up with his wife and co-star Jennifer Carpenter last year after almost two years of marriage - revealed he is happy to be single because it gives him more time to spend with his four-legged friends.

He said: "Things are great. I'm loving life. I spend a lot of time with my cats. They're both boys, they're both very affectionate. Their names are Preacher and Ford. They're my four-legged friends."

Despite the pair - who haven't given a reason for their split - insisting split is amicable, insiders on the set of 'Dexter' revealed that they have been rowing for some time and have even spoken to fellow cast members about their marital problems.

Michael previously insisted his relationship with Jennifer didn't affect their work on the show.

He said: "We certainly pride ourselves in being professionals. We work on the same show but we're not in every scene together. We don't see each other on set as often as you'd think."


Sigh, being a dog person would make you the perfect man. Alas...

Cher Lloyd talks about her single, family and being Gypsy

CHER LLOYD is set for No1 tomorrow with debut single Swagger Jagger but insists she is just a normal girl from a council house - with no plans to move anywhere posher.

The singer and rapper, who only turned 18 last week, stormed to fame with an unforgettable first audition on The X Factor just 11 months ago. Now her first release, which features the melody from US folk song Oh My Darling, Clementine, is on course to knock JLS - another former X Factor act - off the top spot.

But the pint-sized star has no intention of painting the town red and instead says: "I'll probably celebrate by having a night in with a Chinese and a glass of bubbly - because I'm 18 now so I can drink. And I might buy myself a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes."

But aside from designer footwear and a chart-topping track, much of Cher's life looks like staying the same as it has been since she finished fourth on The X Factor last December.

Despite a vague plan to move to London later this year, she and her family - parents Darren and Dina, brother Josh, 15, and sisters Sophie, 14, and 12-year-old Rosie - look set to stay in Malvern, Worcestershire.

Cher says: "I'm still rough and ready. I've got a new job but that doesn't make me any different. I still have my mum, dad, brother and sisters. I reckon my mum and dad will never leave Malvern. They are in the same council house, nothing has changed. My dad still has his makeshift conservatory that leaks when it rains."

Box Office Update: 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Off to a Strong Start



Twentieth Century Fox’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is off to a strong early start at the domestic box office, with preliminary returns suggesting a Friday gross of $14 million.

If the well-reviewed origins pic—headlining Andy Serkis as the ape Caesar—holds the course, it could open in the $35 million to $40 million range.

Directed by Rupert Wyatt and also starring James Franco, Frida Pinto and John Lithgow, Apes is drawing rave reviews, particularly for the photo-realistic apes, which were created by Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital using advanced performance capture technology.

The film, made for $93 million, was produced by Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark’s Chernin Enertainment and co-financed by Fox, Dune Entertainment and Ingenious.

Rise of the Apes earned $1.3 million in midnight runs, nearly double the $700,000 earned in midnight grosses last week by Cowboys & Aliens.

Elsewhere at the domestic box office, Universal's R-rated body switching comedy The Change-Up, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, looked to open on the softer side, although Universal believes the raunchy pic will have good legs. The film is on track to gross $4 to $6 million for Friday.

Directed by David Dobkins, the comedy is expected to open in the low to mid teens for the weekend.

James Franco Tells ‘The View’ Twitter Was Getting Him Into Trouble



James Franco, Freida Pinto and Andy Serkis, stars of the new film Rise of the Planet of the Apes, stopped by The View today to chat with the ladies, and James explained how he used to be addicted to Twitter.

“I was addicted to Tweeting,” James confessed on The View. “I never Tweeted words. I always did, like, images and videos.”

“Like Anthony Weiner?” Sherri Shepherd jokingly asked.

After everyone congratulated Sherri on the good joke, Elisabeth Hasselbeck changed the subject by asking, “And you Tweeted during the Oscars, right?”

“I did that, which was for me, was a way of showing another story of the Oscars. A little controversy — some people didn’t like that, but for me it was interesting and had never been done before. I wanted to give a perspective of the other side.”

“I always think, ‘Oh, I want them to respond more,’ ” he added. “And you think, ‘How can I amp this up with the Tweets?’ So, I was getting into trouble. I was getting into dangerous areas.”

Canadian PM's Wife Serenaded By BSB; Get's Her Ass Booed


Laureen Harper pulled onstage by New Kids on the Backstreet Boys



Laureen Harper, wife of Prime Minister Stephen harper, was pulled onstage at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, where 90s throwback supergroup New Kids on the Backstreet Boys were performing.

Harper was treated to a serenade of I’ll Never Break Your Heart, a song from Backstreet Boys’ self-titled 1995 debut album. She was one of four women to be pulled onstage by BSB member Howie D. She, and the other four, were sung to on bended knee, and were presented with a single red rose.

No word on the prime minister’s feelings regarding the serenade, but audience members were quick to voice their opinions,
with several audible boos emerging from the crowd upon Mrs. Harper’s arrival onstage.

Olivia Wilde Upset About Vagina Tattoo



Actress Olivia Wilde offered to hire a vagina double for her new movie The Change-up so she could appear to flash her character's tattooed genitals in the film.

The sexy Cowboys & Aliens star actually came up with the idea for the scene, in which she and co-star Ryan Reynolds get inked, but producers were nervous about going as far as she wanted to go with it.

She explains, "I get it in a very delicate spot... It's a vagina tattoo... I was like, 'You have to show the tattoo if you set it up for the audience...' and they were like, 'No, we don't need to show the vagina in the movie.' And I was like, 'Well, you know, I'm willing to hire my vagina double right now... because I, as an audience member..., I wanna see it.

The best vagina tattoo I've ever seen - and I haven't seen it in person... You can Google it... This girl had a square of pubic hair, shaved... and a (tattoo of) a little man with a lawnmower walking along... I thought that was genius."


But the director chose not to show the tattoo
, which prompted Wilde to act out the fact it was where it was - and that created another dilemma.

She adds, "I want it to make sense... We get tattoos and there's a scene later where we've just had these tattoos the night before... and I walked into the scene when we were rehearsing, like, 'Ooh, ooh...' and they were like, 'What are you doing? Why are you walking like that?' I said, 'Well, I got the vagina tattoo the night before so I'd probably still be sore, right?'

"They were like, 'Nobody wants to see that, don't do that, don't do that walk,' and I was like, 'It doesn't make sense. We're being irresponsible to the children out there who might go and get vagina tattoos, expecting to walk normally the next day.'"

Michael Jackson Perfume Coming from His Estate; Father’s Schemes Shut Down



There will be a Michael Jackson line of perfumes, but it won’t be coming from Michael’s father, Joseph. I can tell you exclusively that the Michael Jackson estate is in negotiations right now to market its own brands through a conventional big time cosmetics company. The perfume has been created, the bottles are being deisgned, and a name is being decided upon. It will not be called “Thriller,” says a source who’s working on the project.

But it’s not a bad idea. Neither are “Bad,” “Dangerous,” “Invincible” or “Off the Wall” (the latter could be body spray!). What’s NOT happening: a line of perfumes from Michael’s father, Joe Jackson.

Indeed, the estate is spending extra time shutting Jackson senior down as he makes pronouncements about new businesses he’s dreaming up to exploit his late son’s likeness.
Recently, Jackson proclaimed on his website that he and a German firm–UD Group International–a firm with ties to Michael’s one time manager Dieter Wiesner–had somehow gotten the rights in that country to Michael’s name. However, the Jackson estate insists this isn’t true, and that they are contacting their German lawyers to set matters straight.

On the website, Joe Jackson can be seen hocking his own line of “champagne,” and carrying on about his new ventures. He tried to launch his own perfume line during the Cannes Film Festival, but that’s been scotched. He also told this reporter about his plans for Neverland style hotels. “That will not be happening,” said an estate source. “We think Joe knows all these things are pipe dreams. He just likes to do the traveling and get the attention,” said my source.

Meanwhile, the Estate is looking forward to opening night in Montreal on October 2nd, when Cirque du Soleil unveils its Michael Jackson show. Tickets are on sale in several cities. After Montreal, the show heads to Las Vegas. What’s happening here is really interesting: in death, Michael Jackson is now becoming a big, big business, bigger than he could have envisioned.

Pepsi to Feature Super Bowl Spot with Winner of X Factor USA



The X Factor will kick off live performance episodes Wednesday, Nov. 2 after audition episodes, the Los Angeles “boot camp” episodes and the “judges’ homes” phase that where Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger will reveal who will make it to the semifinalists.

The two-night, four-hour premiere of The X Factor on Sept. 21 and 22 will feature live auditions from Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark and Seattle, as well as from YouTube and the nationwide MyStudio audition booths. Auditions will continue over two nights the following week.

Hopefuls who pass the initial auditions head to Los Angeles for “boot camp” – where contestants face the judges panel and a live audience – Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 5 and 6 (8-9:30 p.m.).

Contestants who make it through “boot camp” earn a place in one of four categories: young guys, young girls, older singers and groups. Show producers surprise the judges with the category they will mentor. Then, the remaining contestants from each category will visit the “judges’ homes” for their chance to make it to the live shows on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 12 and 13 (8-9:30 p.m.) and Thursday Oct. 18 (8-9:30 p.m.).

During an extended Tuesday installment on Oct. 25 (8-10:30 p.m.), which will be live on the East Coast and tape-delayed on the West Coast, judges will reveal the finalists. Viewers begin voting with the live performance shows that start Nov. 2. The two-night finale will air Dec. 21 and 22.

Additionally, Fox revealed that the winning singer or group will star in their own Pepsi commercial set to air during NBC’s telecast of Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 12. Pepsi has a tradition of music-related Super Bowl spots; previous commercials have featured Michael Jackson, Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.

TOP 7 WORST STORY CHANGES IN A GAME OF THRONES

Well, we gave you Top 7: Best Story Changes, and in doing so also promised you the other side of the coin. Here is where the other side comes up.

We here especially at Winter Is Coming understand the work that went into it. We appreciate it wholeheartedly.

Seth MacFarlane producing sequel to Carl Sagan's "Cosmos"



“Cosmos,” the 1980 documentary mini-series that encouraged a generation of viewers to contemplate the origins of the universe and their place in it, and made an unlikely television personality out of the astronomer Carl Sagan, is poised to return to terrestrial airwaves. Only this time the starship is being steered by a pilot whose identity you might not surmise even if you had billions and billions of guesses.

On Friday the Fox network is to announce that it has ordered a 13-episode series, “Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey,” expected to be broadcast in 2013. As part of a creative team that includes Ann Druyan, Sagan’s widow and a collaborator on the original “Cosmos,” one of the executive producers is Seth MacFarlane, the creator, producer, co-star and animating spirit of “Family Guy,” the bawdy and irreverent Fox cartoon sitcom.

Yet behind a comic sensibility that is sometimes provocative and sometimes puerile, Mr. MacFarlane is a committed fan of the first “Cosmos” who laments a modern society that he says has lost its fascination with science.

I know half of ONTD hates Seth, but his love of Carl and science in general just makes me love him more. And the fact that Fox is airing this is pretty damn amazing.

Emma Watson and her BF Johnny Simmons making out in LA

Well, here's your proof.



But now it seems Emma Watson has bewitched her latest co-star after they were spotted embracing in Los Angeles.

Emma, 21, looked ‘besotted’ as she tenderly kissed Johnny Simmons, 24, who stars with her in the upcoming £30 million drama The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

An onlooker told The Mail on Sunday: ‘They were all over each other, kissing and hugging. It was very sweet to see. She looked utterly besotted. A girl recognised her and approached her.

Emma was polite and acknowledged her, but she just wanted to be with Johnny and was clearly under his spell. They’re obviously head-over-heels in love.’

Johnny has spent the night with Emma at the upmarket house in Santa Monica where she has been staying with friends. A source said: ‘The moment Johnny turned up Emma was all over him. He stayed overnight at least one night this week. It is clearly a serious relationship. They might have denied it before but they don’t seem to be trying to hide it now.’

Another friend said: ‘Emma loves how down-to-earth and normal Johnny is. He’s very charming and sweet.’

Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary Celebration 'Will Be Huge'



The 50th anniversary of the Doctor Who franchise is still a ways off — it arrives in 2013, to be exact — but the BBC series’ current executive producer has already started thinking about what promises to be “an amazing year” for Who fans.

“I’ve got various plans, but all I can say emphatically is it will be huge,” Steven Moffat tells TVLine.
Will viewers get an extra memorable season of the series, come 2013? Or will the anniversary extravaganza involve, say, stand-alone specials?

“It won’t be just one thing…. We’ll be doing lots of stuff,” is all Moffat would concede. “The plans are quite extensive, and changing all the time. Oh my God, we will hit that year very, very hard indeed.”
Noting that BBC execs “are fully committed” to his grand vision, he said, “There’s lot of decisions we’re making that are about making all that possible. It’ll be amazing.”

What of rumors that the Time Lords of the past — any combination of Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant — will reunite for the occasion? And might other familiar faces from the past return?

“Possibly…. It’s so far in the future, it’s only a set of notions,” he replies, adding that he’s still got this year’s Christmas special to focus on before he gets to locking in plans for the big 5-0.

Aziz Ansari has tense moment with audience member during surprise club set


Funnyman Aziz Ansari dropped by a Los Angeles club Friday night for a surprise set and wound up exchanging words with a female audience member who asked him what he considered a “racist” question.

Appearing as a last-minute guest during comedian Notaro’s show at the Largo at the Coronet, Ansari began taking questions from the crowd when a woman queried, “Why don’t you have a red dot on your forehead?”

While the audience gasped, a shocked Ansari replied by asking why she didn’t have the word “c— on her forehead.”
Then he remarked about how there are still “racist” people in the world.

EW wants to know who the "new" Lucy is, even though it doesn't matter.




On the 100th anniversary of her birthday, Lucille Ball is still a front runner for the title of the greatest comedienne in TV history, alongside greats like Mary Tyler Moore, Isabel Sanford, and Betty White. And while I Love Lucy ended its initial run back in the ’50s, Ball’s influence is still obvious in many of today’s top TV comics — from SNL vets Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to sitcom stars like Debra Messing. But do any of these ladies deserve to be called the new Lucy? (Apologies to beloved EW vet Michael Slezak, who begged us back in 2006 never to crown a new Ms. Ball.) Here’s a case for each nominee, along with her Lucy-est moment. Take a look, and then head to the comments to let us know your pick!

The League Tackles Season 3 with Seth Rogen, Will Forte and Talk of NFL Lockout Scare


The League dodged a bullet — or a tackle, as it were — when the NFL averted a shutdown of its coming season. But rest assured, there was a contingency plan in place.

“Plan B revolved around [Pete, Ruxin et al] losing their minds,” series EP Jeff Schaffer shared at the FX comedy’s Television Critics Association summer press tour session in Beverly Hills. Citing one example, “Poor Andre (played by Paul Scheer) would’ve put all of his heart and soul into Fantasy NBA” — only to be doubly devastated when that sport (possibly) gets stymied by its own lockout.

“The truth is.. we prayed that there would be football, we desperately, desperately wanted there to be football, and we waited. And we waited and waited,”
Schaffer continued. “FX was cool with us pushing our shooting date [and] air date so that we could make sure we started when football started. That is why some of that stuff you just saw [in a TCA promo reel], we shot last night.”

Nadya Suleman: ‘Casey Anthony Is Not Emotionally Stable’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Casey Anthony has earned the status as the most hated mother in America and even Nadya Suleman, Otco-Mom, has bad things to say about her.

"I would die for my children," Octo-Mom said in an exclusive excerpt obtained by RadarOnline.com of her cover interview with Steppin Out Magazine.

"The whole Casey Anthony case makes me nauseous. It makes me sick."

Casey was acquitted last month of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Marie.

"The thought that Casey Anthony would even entertain the idea of harming her child makes me sick," Nadya, a mother to 14 children, including her octuplets, said.

"I don't have all the facts, but I've worked with the mentally disabled for many years before having kids. I worked with sociopaths and psychopaths in a mental hospital and in my opinion Casey Anthony is not emotionally stableCollapse )

'In Time' trailer



When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way, with the help of a beautiful hostage, to bring down a system where time is money -- literally -- enabling the wealthy to live forever while the poor, like Will, have to beg, borrow, and steal enough minutes to make it through another day.
