Joel McHale's college football past, revealed

Joel McHale makes a living cracking jokes as the star of NBC’s “Community” and the host of E!’s clip show “The Soup.” But a couple decades ago, he was cracking skulls as a member of the University of Washington football team. Or trying to, at least. McHale spoke to this week about his secret jock past, and how his sense of humor won him respect in the locker room.

This fantastic photo of McHale (provided by the UW Vault on WhoSay) was taken outside the Rose Bowl in 1993, a year after the future TV star first joined the Huskies football team as a walk-on to play tight end. McHale reveals he was actually brought into UW to play another sport: “I had been recruited to row, and I only played one year of football in high school. I got into a fight with the crew team over not pushing in a chair properly… That was pretty much the end of that.”

And here I thought his recent super-fit look was a new habit brought on by popularity.

1D's former bodyguard on the boys

They’re the biggest band n the world... and today their former bodyguard lifts the lid on life on the road with One Direction.

Andy Davies, who barely left their side for nine months, reveals how they even got an amazing invitation to perform for no less than Barack Obama.

He also tells how an American woman offered them ONE MILLION DOLLARS if they would spend the day with her 1D-obsessed daughter.

And, witnessing at first hand the ­hysteria that follows their every move, he talks of how the boys joke they’re now even bigger than The Beatles.

But he also reveals that despite their phenomenal success, Harry, 18, Niall, Liam and Zayn, all 19, and Louis, 20, are really lovely guys... so “polite and kind-hearted”.

Today, in an exclusive interview with the Sunday Mirror, the man the boys ­affectionately call Baldy talks about how he was ­responsible for tucking them in at night and dragging them out of bed in the morning, and how he gave them a hug and a pep talk when they missed home.

Union J's Jaymi--"I'm gay and I've never been happier!"

X FACTOR heart-throb (lol) Jaymi Hensley has revealed Louis Walsh encouraged him to come out.
The Union J singer sought advice from his mentor on the show, who has managed top bands Boyzone and Westlife, about making his decision.

And speaking exclusively to The Sun last night, Jaymi said: “I spoke to Louis about this and he said, ‘put it this way, both of my big boybands had a gay member in them.’ So he said it fits the formula quite well!

“Every boyband has got to have a gay one! And Louis just said ‘do it’.”
And Jaymi is delighted he did, admitting: “I’m gay and I’ve never been happier!”

this interview made me like him 10x more (despite not being a fan of union j), he seems like a really decent and grounded guy. and i'm so glad he's not being forced to cover it up anymore.

Billboard: One Direction set for #1, Christina at #5 with 75,000

One Direction is a near lock for #1 with 525,000 to 575,000.

Christina Aguilera is poised for #5 with 75,000.

Lana is expected to sell 75,000 for a spot at #4.

The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 21.

As earlier reported, One Direction is a near lock for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week. Industry forecasters say the group's second album, "Take Me Home" (SYCO/Columbia), should start with between 525,000 to 575,000 sold by week's end on Sunday, Nov. 19. No other album will come close to selling that many copies this week, so One Direction's path to No. 1 is clear.

Elsewhere on next week's chart, watch for the Weeknd's debut album, "Trilogy," to launch with 90,000 or so while the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" soundtrack may bow with 80,000. Both sets should easily start in the top 10. Also headed for a big entry is Soundgarden's first studio release in 16 years, "King Animal." The album is looking to debut with around 80,000 as well.

Pop diva Christina Aguilera is poised for a top 10 return, as her new "Lotus" will likely bloom with around 75,000. It's her first studio album since 2010's "Bionic" arrived in the No. 3 slot with 111,000 sold (according to Nielsen SoundScan).

Owen Wilson being awesome with his adorable son and also his 10 best performances in film

The apple doesn't fall far from the Wilson tree when it comes to looks. Actor Owen Wilson was snapped last night playing with his son Robert, who looks just like his old man.

Out for a family dinner with Owen’s ex-wife Jade Duell, Robert had a ball running around with dad’s mobile phone in hand.

Once Owen caught up with him, the little guy got a big hug from dad and was then gently tossed in the air, providing the perfect moment for these happy snaps.

Winona Ryder teams up with Tim Burton for a music video for The Killers

Winona Ryder is teaming up with her Beetlejuice director Tim Burton for a video for the The Killers.

The revered moviemaker shot the video at the Tower Ballroom in the English seaside resort town of Blackpool on Thursday.

The video shoot comes just two days after the band was forced to cut short a concert in nearby Manchester after frontman Brandon Flowers lost his voice.

The group also scrapped a second Manchester show on Wednesday. Both concerts have been rescheduled for February.

Jeremy Renner Hosts SNL: the Best & Worst Sketches

Another week, another Saturday Night Live opening monologue that found its guest host in a moderately amusing bit of musical theater. For those of you keeping score at home, we’re now eight episodes in to Season 38, and six of our hosts having kicked things off by either singing and/or dancing.

Jeremy Renner, for his part, made things a little more interesting this week by showcasing his piano-playing skills on alternate theme songs to three of his recent films, but alas, his caveat that he’s not known for comedy proved all too prescient. Renner frequently seemed so focused on reading his cue cards that he couldn’t manage to breathe any life — or humor — into his characters.

Ah well, at least Maroon 5 sounded pretty good on their two musical numbers, and New Jersey governor Chris Christie brought a few laughs to a really great installment of Weekend Update. With that said, here are my picks for best and worst sketches:

BEST: Cool Drones

A dark, awesomely funny animated short from the “Department of Defense” that reimagined its unmanned killing machines as jaunty heroes/members of a world-famous boy band. I howled at that bit where a terrorist target insulted the Drones’ dance moves, not to mention the brilliant lyric, “I pledge allegiance to your booty, girl.”

Aretha Would Love To Sing At Obama's Inauguration... Again

Q: Will you sing again at the inauguration, as you did in 2009 when you sang “My Country ’Tis of Thee” on that bitter cold day before thousands?

A: I probably will not get a call again. If he called again, I certainly would not say no. I would love to do it again. And I would try doing it in another way so that the weather does not affect my voice.

HARRY Styles has been secretly dating US mega-star Taylor Swift — and vows to end his womanising ways for her.

Cougar magnet Harry has rekindled his romance with the US superstar — who is just FOUR YEARS his senior.
The One Direction star, 18, met the singer’s MUM last week when he joined Taylor, 22, in LA.
Pals say it is a sign the couple, who had an earlier fling, are now serious.

Taylor Swift & Harry Styles: the relationship clues

The couple first met backstage at the Kids' Choice Awards on March 31. Swift was seen singing and dancing during One Direction's performance. Shortly after the award show, Styles began following the American singer on Twitter. Also that week, Justin Bieber invited both Swift and One Direction to his LA mansion, where they swam and "just hung out". Bieber later told Britain's Daily Mirror that "one of the biggest artists in the world thinks Harry is so hot, but I have been sworn to secrecy." Weeks later, during an MTV interview, the other four members of One Direction teased a bashful Styles about Swift. "Did any particular person stand out for you [at the Kids' Choice Awards]? Just so we can get your drift ... a really quick one." When Styles finally mentioned Swift's name, his bandmates shouted, "Jackpot!" As the conversation moved on, Styles muttered to Louis Tomlinson: "I'm going to kill you!"

In late April, One Direction began a tour of Australia and New Zealand, during which Styles revealed that he had exchanged numbers with Swift: "We met in America. She is very talented. She's very nice ... We're friends." However, the flirtation with Swift appeared to come to an abrupt end when Styles was photographed kissing model Emma Ostilly during a night out in Auckland, New Zealand. Radar reported that, although they weren't exclusive, Styles had "hinted at making it official" with Swift just before he left the US. "He even told Taylor he didn't want her to see anybody else while he was gone. Taylor woke up one morning to confusing text messages from him, begging for a chance to explain and telling her not to believe everything she reads. She immediately googled Harry and found all the stories and pictures of him kissing Emma." In the following months, Styles was linked to model Cara Delevingne while Swift enjoyed a two-month summer romance with Conor Kennedy. In a July interview, Swift was asked to name her favorite One Direction member and jokingly replied, "How could you possibly choose?!"

Styles and Swift posed with fans at LA's Katsuya in September

The pair were next seen together on September 6, when Popstar magazine reported that Styles and his bandmates watched Swift's final MTV Video Music Awards rehearsal. The couple later enjoyed a post-show meal at LA's Katsuya with a group that included their mutual friend Ed Sheeran and Swift's bandmates. They posed separately for photos with fans inside the sushi restaurant. Swift and her boyfriend Kennedy, a prep school boarder, had their final meeting on September 16. In October, a source revealed that the couple had "quietly parted ways a while ago. It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine."

Trailer and Ep 1 of BBC 3 show -"Some Girls" which is not like "The Inbetweeners"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Colin Salmon fans, distraught at watching being given the boot on 'Strictly Come Dancing', have only had to wait two days to see him in action again.

The James Bond star plays the patriarch Rob in new BBC3 comedy 'Some Girls' which kicks off tonight, doing his best to keep a check on his daughter Viva (Adelayo Adedayo) and her school chums Holli, Saz and Amber.

"It's like a busman's holiday," says Salmon, who has four children himself. "They're exhausting, but it's fun."

Because it's four girls together at school, living on the same estate, navigating the trials of boys, gangs and... arguably most importantly, football, the show is bound to draw comparisons with that other great rite-of-passage tale 'The Inbetweeners', something the girls are quick to shrug off.

"Similar structure, but we're pretty different," says Adedayo. "But we really look out for each other..." she smiles, "it's the rest of the world that's the problem."

This includes Viva's tortuous PE teacher, Anna (Dolly Wells), who also happens to be her stepmother, married to Rob. This is a major plotline that causes Viva enormous angst, but which also means - phew! - that Salmon's many fans might just get to see him in seductive form, even if it's not on the dance floor.

Kevin Spacey joins Bill Clinton for plush dinner in London

He famously impersonated Bill Clinton at Elton John's Grey Goose Winter Ball, sending up the former president saying: 'I have been to Africa and I know how to party', all the while wearing star sunglasses.
But it seems Clinton has already forgiven his actor pal as the pair dined out in Mayfair on Thursday with Spacey, 53, wearing a dazzling patterned grey suit.
Former president Clinton opted for a dark brown suit and kept his head down as he left Scotts restaurant, perhaps giving his eyes a rest after staring at Spacey's hypnotising suit all night.

Dinner for two: Kevin Spacey leaves Scotts in Mayfair, closely followed by Bill Clinton

A Post For Actor James Deen

Interview Magazine/ROSS SIMONINI: Has your acting in adult film prepared you at all for acting in your first feature film?

JAMES DEEN: Absolutely. It’s not that much different. In adult film, the hardest thing isn’t having sex in front of a stranger or a large group of people. That’s actually not that difficult. There are a lot of people who can do that or who are into that. The hard part is going from a dead stop in a conversation, like you and I are having, to immediately getting yourself into an aroused mind-set. It’s the same switch with all acting, though I suppose Method actors don’t have that problem. But I’m not a Method actor. My technique is, I read the script—I read every word on the page—and then I try to do what it says on the page. The coaching I had before this role actually hasn't helped me at all. (obviously)

Kate Middleton Returns Gifted Kardashian Kollection Clothing


Kate Middleton has reportedly returned clothes she was sent by Kim Kardashian.

The Duchess of Cambridge is said to have rejected the Kardashian Kollection pieces and returned them to suppliers Dorothy Perkins.

According to The Examiner, a source said that Middleton - who often wears high-end high street pieces - would be unlikely to wear any of the items.

"Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the Queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequinned jacket," they said. The source also added that the Duchess had turned down Kardashian's invitation to tea.

Kardashian insiders rejected the claims, saying that the sisters never sent Middleton the designs or planned to meet with her.

"Kim was working the whole time and though she admires Kate, she didn't reach out to her," they told E! Online.


Holliday Grainger: It's the Holliday season

We’ve had great expectations for rising starlet Holliday Grainger. And as the lead in this winter’s must-see movie, she doesn’t disappoint

Holliday Grainger is juggling three mobile phones, and an air of furious concentration pervades her doll-like face as she sets them into rest mode. ‘They’re for different countries,’ she sighs without a hint of swank, leaving the phones to pulse unheeded. While she is a thoroughly modern girl, insisting that Skyping from film locations is the solution to the perils of long-distance love, she has spent the past three years being laced into – and in some cases helped out of – corsets, bustles and bonnets.

Eliminated Jennel Garcia says Demi turned her into something she wasn't

After Jennel’s shocking elimination from ‘The X Factor’, she vowed that it’s ‘time for me to show the world who I really am.’ Distraught, she admitted she felt Demi turned her into something she wasn’t and audiences didn’t like it. 

Jennel Garcia became the latest victim to get the ax from The X Factor, as the judges chose to save Paige Thomas instead of her after a dramatic sing off. Jennel, who has vowed to pursue her dream of becoming a star, says that she now wants to shake off the image that she was given by her mentor Demi Lovato, as she feels she “was letting Demi do what she wanted. “The makeup; the hair; the heels; that wasn’t necessarily me and I was letting Demi do what she wanted, and I was going to listen to her no matter what because she’s my mentor and I trust her.”

Jennel also regrets not pushing Demi more on the song choice of “Proud Mary,” which she believes is the reason why she was went home. “I really put up a fight about singing ‘Proud Mary’ because the other song we were working on was ‘You Oughta Know’ by Alanis Morissette, which is way more me than ‘Proud Mary,’ but everyone disagreed and said ‘Proud Mary’ was the one. Clearly it was not, so I was right. I should’ve stuck up for myself more. I should have given them a piece of my mind, much more than I did, but I didn’t because I wanted to be good and cooperative.”


Well she didn't lie.... I'm going to miss her.

Jennifer Aniston's Fiance 'Invites Brad And Angelina To Their Wedding'


Justin Theroux has reportedly invited Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to his wedding with Jennifer Aniston. Shouldn't be awkward at all...

The kind actor has allegedly added two unlikely names to the guest list for his upcoming nuptials to Jennifer Aniston - her ex husband Brad Pitt, and the woman he left her for, Angelina Jolie.

We've been waiting for Jennifer to settle down again for years - and with juicy gossip like this, we wish she'd done it sooner! It was rumoured that Jennifer was considering asking her ex-husband Brad and new fiancée Angelina to her highly-anticipated wedding , but who'd have thought it would be Justin's idea?!

"Justin and Jennifer are so happy right now - they don't want any bad feeling in any aspect of their lives by the time they tie the knot," a source revealed to British magazine Grazia.

"Justin knows that Jen and Brad talk occasionally and he likes the actor [the pair have met a few times]. Obviously, this means inviting Angelina too. Jennifer was taken aback, as she really didn't think Justin would want her ex-husband there, but she loves the fact he's so OK about it."

Justin proposed to Jennifer back in August, and the couple are reportedly planning to wed in either Hawaii or Mexico by the end of 2012. We're guessing it won't be low key...

What we wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall on the big day!

Adam Lambert Makes Little Girl's Day In Johannesburg

Are you ready for possibly the cutest Adam Lambert post on the planet? Yes? Perfect.

Imagine you’re a little girl obsessed with Adam. Now imagine that you not only meet Adam, but you have him sign a photo for you, read a letter you wrote him and he gives you a hug. That’s exactly what happened for 7-year-old Erin Korcz when she got to meet Adam, her idol, in South Africa over the weekend.

Erin got passes to his press conference and when the reporters were asked if they had any questions, Erin made her way to the front and asked him to sign a picture she’d brought with “Dear Adam, I love you. Love, Erin” written on it. Adam then invited her on stage–what a gem.

She also gave him a letter, which was apparently adorable. When she finished Adam told her, “I like you too and you are cute.” To which Erin replied, ” No you cute!” This is basically one of the cutest stories ever.

Gia Carangi is considered America's first Supermodel, paving the way for the likes of Cindy Crawford (Cindy was often referred to as Baby Gia). She was born in January of 1960 in Philadelphia. By 1978, she was one of the most sought after fashion models in the world. Unfortunately, her fame as a supermodel only lasted roughly 4 years. Plagued with drug addiction, she left the fashion world in 1982, only to die from an AIDS related illness 4 years later on November 18, 1986. She was only 26 years old.

"Parenthood's" Mae Whitman - "All I do is talk about Tim Riggins and the Panthers"

The drama's prodigal daughter cops to an obsession with a bygone TV character — and to crying watching her own show

title or description

Mae Whitman stars on “Parenthood,” NBC’s shaggy, tear-inducing family drama, as Amber, a spunky, increasingly together, emotionally astute free spirit. The 24-year-old Whitman has been acting for the last 18 years (nope, that’s not a typo). She appeared in everything from “Hope Floats” and “Independence Day,” to “Arrested Development” and “In Treatment” before arriving on “Parenthood,” which, to judge from Whitman’s words, is the loveliest, kindest workplace in all the world — exactly as it seems to be. Whitman spoke to me about the series, her interest in national parks, her obsession with “Friday Night Lights” — which was also overseen by “Parenthood’s” creator Jason Katims — and her dreams about Tim Riggins. And, yes, she also cries while watching “Parenthood.”
