Jay Baruchel on the Toronto International Film Festival



Montreal actor Jay Baruchel will be at the Toronto International Film Festival next week to promote hockey movie Goon, which he co-wrote and co-produced (and also stars in). A regular at TIFF, Baruchel first made the rounds in 2005 for indie hit Fetching Cody, followed by Just Buried (2007), Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008), The Trotsky (2009) and Good Neighbours (2010). Here, he discusses how his festival experiences have changed over the years, and why he keeps coming back. As told to Vanessa Farquharson

Ke$ha hits Canada, talks to Calgary Sun




Ke$ha: 'I'm an animal'

It's been a wild two years for dance-pop star Ke$ha.

But if anyone can handle wild, it’s this energetic, plainspoken 24-year-old blonde.

Though she had been writing songs and providing background vocals for the likes of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears since 2005, it wasn’t until Ke$ha was featured on Flo Rida’s massive 2009 hit, Right Round, that her career started to take flight.

Her debut album, Animal, opened at number one on the Billboard Top 100 and has gone double platinum in Canada since its release early last year, and the first single, Tik Tok, broke the record for most digital downloads in a single week.

She opened for pop princess Rihanna this past spring and is currently close to wrapping up the latest leg of her Get Sleazy Tour with opening acts LMFAO and Spank Rock.

The tour stops in Calgary at the Saddledome on Tuesday and Edmonton’s Rexall Place the following night.

The Nashville native gets down and dirty about her live show, critics who don’t take her music seriously, not to mention the pressure to look and act like a cookie-cutter pop star.

I hope she comes back with a new single soon when the tour is over. She has hinted on Twitter that something might be happening soon, saying that she "has a surprise brewing". Maybe it's the new song she recorded with Doctor Luke and Benny Blanco earlier this summer.

Btw, the Alice Cooper/Ke$ha collab "What Baby Wants" has leaked in full recently (except for 3 seconds missing at the end):

Cumberbatch interview with the Guardian. Remains flawless.

Benedict Cumberbatch interview: On the couch with Mr Cumberbatch

As the Sherlock star prepares to play a dapper 70s spook in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Benedict Cumberbatch tells Emma John about the joys of kitesurfing, being single and punching Tom Hardy – while presenting the sharpest looks from the coming season.



Benedict Cumberbatch is talking Edwardian manners, the brutishness of croquet and a million other things that segue rapidly into each other while my brain struggles feebly to keep up. He is making me a cup of Earl Grey, and a single question – shall we share a teabag? – has triggered this rush of inspiration, from tea ceremonies to post-colonial theory. It's fair to say that Cumberbatch is both a thinker and a talker.

A Donnie, Mark, Paul Wahlburg Reality Show?

Marky Mark's about to get real.-LOL


Not just satisfied with opening a burger joint with his brothers, Mark Wahlberg is thinking about shooting a reality show based on the Walhburgers restaurant. The high-end burger joint will be located outside of Boston.

But don't expect him to appear on screen.

"Maybe I'll be the 'Charlie's Angels' of reality TV," the "Entourage" producer told E! Online. "You'll hear my voice. But obviously it's something that we'd want to control in every aspect and produce and make sure that we were doing something really quality."

Wahlberg said he also has other business ventures in mind.

"We are interested at some point or another doing our own clothing line in the future," he said.


"As well as a health and wellness business that will help people first and foremost feel good, exercise, eat right and then look good ... Eighty-five percent of the population doesn't exercise and eat right, and you want to be able to push them in the direction of extending their lifespan and living healthy lives," he added.

Acting, however, still holds a special place in his heart.

Wahlberg recently finished filming Seth MacFarlane's live action debut, "Ted", with Mila Kunis. He is also producing the comedy "Bait and Switch," and plans to star in a Thanksgiving movie with Will Ferrell.

I like how everyone is assuming that Wahlburger's is Donnie and Mark's thing when really it's their bro Paul's idea.
I wonder how many BH's have applied for jobs there.

Katy Deschanel.

Zooey Deschanel talks about people mistaken her as Katy Perry.

It appears actress/singer Zooey Deschanel is getting tired with people for confusing her with pop star Katy Perry.

“One time I was at the Grammys and a girl came up to me and asked for my autograph,” Deschanel, 31, tells Extra. “And then she was like…’What??’ I was like, ‘Oh, I know who you’re looking for. She’s over there.’”

While Deschanel says Perry, 26, is “beautiful” and therefore doesn’t mind the case of mistaken identity, back in 2009 she had some choice words to say about the comparisons.

“It’s a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt. The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike,” she told MTV. “I have met her before. She seems like a nice person. I’m happy that she’s famous enough now that she’s not going out and being mistaken for me.”

That last line gets even more interesting when Deschanel adds, “I used to get, ‘I heard you were out at such-and-such club drinking whiskey!’ [when] I was at home watching TV. I think we lead very different lives. At some point I feel like this will stop being a thing. I like the way my life goes. It’s sort of strange to be associated with someone that’s doing such different stuff than me. It’s weird.”

Kat Graham feels our pain, Bonnie fans.

TVD shoots in Atlanta, so it's rare for us to see our fave cast members in Los Angeles very often. Still, the stars aligned this summer and we had the chance to hang with the lovely Kat graham twice in one week.

Of course we were happy to see her, but it made us a little nervous that she wasn't back in Atlanta filming. Kat assures us that Bonnie hasn't taken an extended summer vacation.

"I'm in the season premiere!" she says. "The important thing is that my fans watch the episodes whether they think I'm in it or not, and support the writers the way they've supported me when I was just a nothing actress trying to make it. It's all about the story overall, and the fans need to appreciate that and have faith that Bonnie's time will always come."

Exclusive Details: O-Town Goes Back in Studio -- Without Ashley!

In 2000, O-Town was the first group to break out of the reality show “Making the Band” -- and now, 11 years later, they’re finally back in the studio together!




Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Dan Miller and Erik-Michael Estrada were all seen leaving an L.A. studio together after laying down tracks for a brand new album -- one they'll be making without original group member Ashley Parker Angel.

Since Jacob lives in Nashville, the crew has been recording on and off for the past few weeks as he travels back and forth between the East and West Coast.

A source at the studio tells TooFab the new songs are "coming great" and the group is aiming to have an album out by the end of the year.

The group originally disbanded in 2003, after releasing two Top 10 songs in the US, "Liquid Dreams" and "All or Nothing."

During a recent interview, actor Ian Somerhalder talked about how his character Damon Salvatore will change this season, the push-pull between what Damon truly is and who everyone else wants him to be, the effects of the Season 2 finale kiss between Damon and Elena, Damon’s relationships with Bonnie (Katerina Graham) and Jeremy (Steven R.

Actor, Dan Aykroyd, given key to the City of Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - A veteran actor and screenwriter visited the Cataract City promoting
another type of venture Saturday.

Dan Aykroyd visited Supermarket Liquors and Wines on Niagara Falls Boulevard.

They're selling Crystal Head Vodka, one of several alcoholic products the Canadian has developed over the years.

To commemorate the event, Mayor Paul Dyster gave the "Blues Brothers" co-star the key to the City.

Dan Aykroyd said, "Niagara Falls is one of the unpolished gems of American architecture. The downtown of Niagara Falls is beautiful as a lot of the old office buildings from the '30s. Of course some of the infrastructure having to do with the power dams here, still in existence. In Canada we say we have the longer Falls and maybe the prettier ones. But I think the city of Niagara Falls New York is, a little prettier than Niagara Falls Canada."

Aykroyd also signed posters for the upcoming, Fourth Annual Niagara Falls Blues Festival.

Kelly Rowlegend: "Being the only black girl in a white school gave me an identity crisis"



She's been a revelation on The X Factor with her spot-on comments and glamorous style. But it's been a long, hard road for Kelly to get to where she is now.

With an alcoholic father, a mother who gave her up and growing up in the shadow of her hugely successful gal pal Beyoncé Knowles, the former Destiny's Child singer, 30, has had to struggle for her success.

'There's so much peer pressure growing up, I had an identity crisis,' she's admitted.

'I went to a predominantly white school and I was the only black girl.

'I can remember thinking: "I don't want to be as dark as I am - I want to be a little fairer."


'I didn't want to be me.'

Kelly credits her bandmate Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles for helping restore her confidence.

She says: ‘Tina sat me in front of the mirror and said: "Girl, look at how pretty you are."

'She made me feel comfortable in my own skin.'

She has come a long way; I'm glad she didn't decide to bleach her skin like Beyonce! ♥

Usain Bolt leads Jamaica to relay record as GB and US sprinters clash



Jamaica have broken the world record to win gold in the men's 4x100m in a time of 37.04sec at the world championships in Daegu.

Great Britain's relay team failed to complete the final handover and, in the process, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey collided with the American third-leg runner, Darvis Patton, sending him sprawling across the track and out of the race.

Bolt powered home to help Jamaica set the world record time after Nesta Carter led off the relay and handed to Michael Frater. Yohan Blake, the 100m world champion following the disqualification of Bolt in the final, ran the third leg and handed to Bolt. The Jamaicans bettered their own mark of 37.10sec which they ran to win gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

France finished second in 38.20sec and Saint Kitts and Nevis took bronze in 38.49sec.

Tyler Shields on Heather Morris Photoshoot (and Backtracking 101)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It seems ironic ... but the brutal photo of "Glee" star Heather Morris sporting a fake black eye will be auctioned off soon ... and all of the proceeds will go towards a domestic violence charity ... TMZ has learned.

The photo ignited a major controversy when it was released on the Internet a few days ago -- with some critics saying it glamorizes violence against women.

But Tyler Shields, the photog behind the shot, tells us that was NOT the intention -- and he's sorry it came off that way.

Shields says ... to make up for the controversy, he'll be auctioning off the photo, starting at $100k, and will donate every single cent he makes to a top domestic violence charity.

Forgiven??

Ray J thinks it's a fabulous idea for Vivid Entertainment to sell the rights to "Kim K Superstar" ... so long as he gets a big piece of the action.

TMZ broke the story ... an undisclosed private party has offered to buy all rights to the XXX flick from Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch -- which he told TMZ is worth at least $30 million. The buyer indicated he (though we're guessing it's a she) wanted to take the video off the market.

TMZ has obtained a letter from Ray J's lawyer to Hirsch, in which the attorney makes it clear ... Ray J has partial copyright ownership in the video and "any attempts to transfer the copyright outside of these parameters will result in filing a motion with the courts to seek an injunction of any sale until Ray J's rights are protected." Translation -- he wants some serious cash.

The letter also says the video has been a pain in the ass for Ray J: "... my client rarely has a conversation with industry professionals where the Tape has not been mentioned or questioned ... no amount of money can relieve him from this nightmare." The lawyer didn't mention how much money Ray J has already made from the video.

As for Kim's financial interest in the tape ... no one is talking, but the video has made untold millions, and Kim is a smart businesswoman. We're just sayin'...

After posting one song online, this 24-year-old American singer sold out a London gig in half an hour

We crave a popstar who is authentic, who thrives because of their talent, not PR. So when you stumble across someone like Lana Del Rey – her popularity apparently born online and growing per YouTube click – it's hard not to be sceptical as to whether she's actually too good to be true. Surely it can't be that after posting just one song online, this brand new artist sold out a London gig in half an hour?

"I just put that song online a few months ago because it was my favourite," the 24-year-old American explains. "To be honest, it wasn't going to be the single but people have really responded to it."

And that’s a good thing. The 37-year-old Brit-born former Passions, All My Children and Days of Our Lives oft-shirtless star had been reduced to dancing for blogger B. Scott, and taking guest stripping spots at gay bars in the past three years to keep dollars in his pocket, er g-string. For Marcus, it’s like returning to his roots–it’s no secret that before he landed Hollywood roles, he was a fixture dancing in gay clubs.

According to Internet whispers, he was VERY recently spotted at a Phoenix gay bar stripping as his WIFE looked on.

His last acting job was a spot in Corey Haim’s horror flick The Dead Sea, which hit NetFlix in April, and he also appears in the drama The Dark Party, currently in post-production. For those of you who live across the pond, you may have caught his foine ass in a wetsuit today on BBC’s Celebrity Wipeout.

Rafael Nadal's Faces Make Me Uncomfortable




NEW YORK -- Toward the end of his press conference Sunday, Rafael Nadal suddenly stopped talking and leaned back in his chair. He closed his eyes and grimaced. He started taking unnaturally big breaths.

Then all hell broke loose.


Nadal slid off his chair and lay down on the floor behind a big desk. The International Tennis Federation representative hurriedly cleared Interview Room No. 1 and had the lights killed. Still, cameras and microphones allowed the whole 15-minute drama to be seen and heard.
It was truly extraordinary to witness. Trainers and members of his team rushed to his aid, speaking swiftly in Spanish. Complaining of leg cramps -- the classic symptoms of dehydration -- Nadal received ice and water.

Nadal had just beaten David Nalbandian 7-6 (5), 6-1, 7-5 on a hot and particularly humid day. He was pulled to his feet and walked off the stage under his own power, but his legs were unsteady.

Five minutes later, Nadal returned to say he was fine. As if nothing had happened at all.

"I just have cramping in front and behind," he said. "That's why I, was so painful. That's all."


Later, Andy Roddick downplayed the incident:

"Not to put a dampener on the story, which I know you guys think is really big, but people cramp after matches when you're cold," Roddick said. "It's just something that happens. It's just unfortunate it happened in front of you all. Every single player in there has had that happen before. Every single one.

"What we do, we run around, run miles and miles and miles and miles on the tennis court in nasty weather. You throw nerves in there, I mean, it happens. As long as it doesn't happen during a match, you're fine."

This U.S. Open has already been visited by a record 14 retirements, but this episode memorably underlined how difficult the conditions have been.

Bellamy Brothers apologize to Dr. Luke & Max Martin



Sometimes saying you're sorry and admitting you were wrong really does fix everything -- because a lawsuit over the Britney Spears hit song "Hold It Against Me" was dismissed for just that very reason.

As TMZ first reported, Dr. Luke (along with fellow co-writer Max Martin) sued the Bellamy Brothers for defamation after they went around bad-mouthing the song and saying it was just a rip-off of their 1979 song, "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?"

But according to court documents filed last week, Dr. Luke dropped his lawsuit after the Bellamy Brothers admitted the Britney song was not a copy of theirs.

Both sides agreed upon an apology, which reads in part: "The Bellamy Brothers apologize to Dr. Luke and Max Martin for the Bellamys' public statements and any false impressions suggested by the statements on their website that Dr. Luke and Max Martin copy the works of others."

No damages were awarded.

Eddie Murphy the front-runner to host 2012 Oscars

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
According to a report by Deadline, Eddie Murphy has emerged as the front-runner to present the 84th Academy Awards ceremony.

Brett Ratner is producing the show this year, and apparently Murphy's is the name he'll be putting forward to Academy president Tom Sherak.

It shouldn't come as a huge surprise to learn that Ratner is favouring Murphy, as the pair have recently worked together on upcoming comedy Tower Heist, a kind of everyman's Ocean's Eleven.

With his background in stand-up comedy, Murphy could certainly bring a bit of much needed energy to the proceedings, not too mention a welcome smattering of 'edge.'

Some rumour sites are reporting Murphy's role as a done deal, although there has been no official confirmation yet. According to Deadline, Oscars favourite Billy Crystal will be involved in some capacity.

Eddie Murphy received a Best Supporting Actor nomination from the Academy for Dreamgirls in 2007.

THE GAME takes approx 3 steps forward then 1 step back with gay comments

The Game: “Beyonce Should’ve Said ‘Who Run the World? Gays’”



Rapper The Game may be celebrating another #1 on Billboard’s 200, but his summer 2011 will probably be remembered for everything but his chart entries. As he has had tongues wagging all summer long with pranks-gone-wrong, comments on female rappers, and sharing thoughts on fellow emcees, the ‘How We Do’ rapper has definitely had more headlines than hits. So, continuing in that fashion, Game weighed in on a taboo topic – gay rappers. Interestingly, his comments do not steer far from the message the ‘Run the World’ diva says she meant to convey with the song.

Either way, while the visual is gaining steam and his comments are being met with mixed reception over the blog-o-sphere, we want That Grape Juice readers to weigh in.

Hear his comments and sound off after the jump:

While it’s no secret the LGBT community still has a way to go, the advances in the pop community over the past few years (in the form of Adam Lamberts, Lady Gagas, Jessie Js, and co) have given some stride to progress. However, in the Urban pop/hip-hop community, the subject is still very taboo. Rapper Lil’ B (crowned by The Game as ‘the wackest rapper today’) recently caused shockwaves in the Urban industry with his album ‘I’m Gay’, but quickly assured fans that such was only an ‘attention-getter’.

A step forward or a step back? Who knows. But what do you guys think?

'For the record, I'm not trying to be a serious actor,' the Friends With Benefits star joked at one point in the night, People magazine reported. Doors to the 1,200-person venue opened at about 9.15 pm, and the hour-long show got underway shortly after 11pm, but after playing a shortened version of Like I Love You, from his first solo album, the 30-year-old joked, 'I'm getting too old for this.'

I'm confused, I thought he was trying to be a pro? And has anyone else been to his place? Went a few weeks ago and the food was ok, nothing special.
