Rumour: Universal plans Middle-earth theme park?

Unconfirmed rumours are circulating that Universal is talking with Tolkien Estate about creating a Middle-earth theme park. The rumours emerged on New Year’s day on the Orlando United forum where a user reported claims that Universal Studios asked Warner Bros. to raise the topic with Tolkien Estate. At this point, it is unclear whether the user has insider knowledge, or is simply reporting what others have said.

Jamie Dornan undergoes shoulder surgery + possible OUAT return (?)

British model/actor Jamie Dornan is recovering after undergoing surgery on his shoulder.

The star, who dated Keira Knightley, took time off late last year (Nov12) after hurting himself and he recently underwent an operation to treat the injury.

Dornan reveals he hated resting at home as he had nothing to do but watch reality Tv shows, telling Britain's Elle magazine, "I can't even go out for a run. I've subjected myself to Celebrity Come Dine With Me for two days in a row."

He added in a post on Twitter.com, "Stuck on my sofa due to injury... I need help... kill me!"

Azealia Banks apologizes but 'really not moved by this f word thing'


Azealia Banks has said that she is "really not as moved" as people expect her to be over her use of the word "f*ggot".

The rapper directed the slur at gossip columnist Perez Hilton and was later condemned by Scissor Sisters star Jake Shears and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

In a burst of messages after the initial tweets, Banks defended her use of the word, while also apologizing to those "indirectly offended" by it.

"My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language. Not sorry for Perez tho. Lol," she said. She added: "Unpleasant meddling woman = bitch, unpleasant meddling man = Perez Hilton.

"Really not as moved by this f word thing as u all want me to be. As a bisexual person I knew what I meant when I used that word. And I meant what I meant when I used that word. You human beings have bigger life problems then (sic) what I think about some played out gossip dude....."

Banks also retweeted several messages of support from her fans, including those who noted that Hilton himself used the word "f*ggot" to insult Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am in 2009.

"I don't need to respect you, and you're a f*g. You're gay, and stop being such a f*ggot," said Hilton following a confrontation with the musician.

Hilton was criticized by GLAAD and although he initially argued that the pressure group owed him an apology, he later apologized for his use of the slur.

Matt Bomer Gets Animated for Superman: Unbound

Matt Bomer is going up, up and away — into the world of animation. The mild-mannered White Collar star has landed the lead in the upcoming movie Superman: Unbound. Coming this spring to DVD, Blu-ray and On Demand, the film features an all-star cast, including Fringe's John Noble as the world-destroying alien Brainiac and Castle costars Stana Katic and Molly Quinn as Superman's girlfriend, Lois Lane, and cousin, Kara (aka Supergirl), respectively.

Based on a 2008 Action Comics storyline by Geoff Johns, Superman: Unbound — the latest in a series of movie adaptations from Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment — pits the Man of Steel against Brainiac, an alien who attacks planets, shrinks one city small enough to fit in a bottle, then destroys the rest of the planet. "He's the ultimate collector," says director/supervising producer James Tucker (Batman: The Brave and the Bold). "He says what he's doing is the name of science and ultimate knowledge, but really he just wants stuff and he doesn't want anyone else to have access to it."

In the film's second story thread Superman struggles to relate to the women in his life. As his romance with Lois heats up (in his secret identity as Clark Kent), he worries that she could be in jeopardy if his enemies discover their connection. And his paternal instincts drive him to be overprotective of the teenage Kara — despite the fact that she has super abilities on par with his.

Bomer took on this new identity with ease. "He had a jovial energy that was a little counter to what we usually do with Superman," Tucker says. "But he also had that decency in his voice that Superman really needs no matter which way you go with him."

Noble was also perfectly suited for his role. "I could listen to him all day," Tucker says. "John had a lot of energy and he really got into the psychology of what was motivating Brainiac. He brought a level of intelligence, but also that slight bit of crazy that a super villain needs to have under the surface to make him compelling."

In addition to the dazzling voice cast, Tucker (who also did the character design) is quite pleased with the movie's score, from composer Kevin Kliesch. "I wanted it to sound like a contemporary movie," Tucker says of his directive to Kliesch, whose credits include the recent ThunderCats relaunch and the upcoming Disney Channel series Sofia the First. "There's a lot of guitars and percussion, a lot of driving music, it's not orchestral at all. The music's not like any movie Superman movie you've seen."



Five Minutes With the Irish Jesus

Aidan Turner plays Kili, brother of Fili, in 'The Hobbit'
Dublin actor Aidan Turner got his start in a number of theatre productions following his graduation from the Gaiety School of Acting in 2004. He quickly made the transition from stage to screen, landing roles in Irish-shot period drama ‘The Tudors’, BBC series ‘Desperate Romantics’ and RTÉ series ‘The Clinic’.

His breakout role in BBC fantasy drama ‘Being Human’ somewhat prepared him for international stardom, as the US quickly made its own version of the vampire-based thriller.

This year however, Tuner is embarking on a different kind of fan journey, as he prepares for the worldwide release of Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, the first film instalment based on JRR Tolkien’s cult novel, in which he plays Kili the Dwarf.

IFTN spent five minutes with Turner ahead of the Dublin premiere of ‘The Hobbit’, to talk all things fan-related, prosthetics, and why he preferred acting opposite a tennis ball than Sir Ian McKellen.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 EXTENDED EDITION Releasing March 2nd on Bluray/DVD

For those who cannot get enough of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1, there's going to be even more on the DVD.

Summit Entertainment announced Monday that the Blu-ray/DVD/digital download, due out on March 2, will feature eight minutes of previously unreleased footage.

These are moments from Stephenie Meyer's best-selling book that didn't make it to the screen adaptation.

"I wanted to make sure that for all the Twihards out there, there was a chance to see some of these cut scenes — several of which are fan favorites from the book," director Bill Condon said in a statement released Monday. As Twilight series devotees know, there was a lot of ground to cover in adapting Breaking Dawn to the screen," Condon added. "Between the wedding, the honeymoon, the birth, and everything in between, naturally there were things that didn't make it into our final cut."

Condon did not specify which scenes would be added to the DVD extras.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 took in $281.3 million in domestic box office sales after its release on Nov. 18, 2011. The follow-up film, Breaking Dawn, Part 2, ended the series in remarkable fashion in November 2012, taking in $289 million.



Famke Janssen on X-Men: Days of Future Past

A few of the original cast members from Bryan Singer's X-Men films have been confirmed to return for the upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, but will there be more?

SuperHeroHype spoke with Famke Janssen at the Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters junket this weekend and asked her about a possible return.

"I'm sitting by the phone waiting, call me up Bryan!" she said, adding, "I think their challenge is that I died as Jean Grey and I died as the Phoenix, so what else can they do. If they bring a younger version back, they'll have to get a younger actress, so what is there left to do?"

Previously, Janssen was quoted as saying: "One never knows. Jean Grey, the Phoenix … she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly, so one never knows." She seems a little less sure this time around. There's still time for more of the original cast to be added though as no start date for the film has been announced.

The other confirmed cast members for the film are James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult.

Scheduled for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in "Uncanny X-Men" #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.

TMZ broke the story ... Bethenny filed for divorce last week against Jason Hoppy.  Now we've learned ... Bethenny -- who is reportedly worth between $25 million and $55 million -- has filed legal docs asking for the following from Jason:

--- Child support ... retroactive from the date she filed for divorce
--  Medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses for HER and her child
--  Life insurance that makes both her and the kid beneficiaries

She also wants Jason -- who made lots of money in real estate --  out of their marital residence for good.  Bethenny is asking for exclusive occupancy.

And there's more ... Bethenny wants primary physical custody of 2-year-old Bryn. Bethenny also wants the judge to enforce their prenup dated March 23, 2010 ... signed 5 days before they got hitched.

A source connected with Bethenny tells TMZ ... "This is a preliminary step to move the process forward.   She wants to work this out privately and amicably.  All Bethenny cares about is that it works out the best way possible for Bryn."

Huell Howser 'California's Gold' Host Dead at 67

L.A. TV icon Huell Howser -- best known for hosting the wildly popular travel show "California's Gold" on KCET -- has passed away at age 67.

A rep for KCET tells TMZ, Howser died in his L.A. home late Sunday night of natural causes ... details surrounding his death have not been released.

He hosted his Cali travel show for 18 seasons -- and only recently retired in November after completing over 440 episodes.

Fun fact: Howser also appeared on two episodes of "The Simpsons" ... Matt Groening was a huge fan.


Everyone post gifs or videos of your favorite Huell moments or just reminisce about them! I loved Huell! His childlike excitement over EVERYTHING was the best!

New York Observer: "One Direction Can't Dance," calls for return of 'N Sync

Directionless: Shaggy, Good-Natured and Beloved by Millions, One Direction Just Can’t Dance

What is the experience of a One Direction concert like? Their stage show, at least at this point, is more streamlined than the classic Backstreet Boys or ’N Sync production, with its mechanical arms and flying effects. Circa 2012 it is the video graphics that take center stage, with an unparalleled level of sophistication and detail. Laser beams sweep and bursts of steam shoot up from the floor as One Direction literally skips around the stage.

It turns out that skipping and walking just about sum up what the five boys, who are all between 18 and 20, are physically capable of doing. They can’t dance—not a single step. They can’t even shuffle rhythmically from foot to foot. Looking back at videos from the HBO special made during ’N Sync’s No Strings Attached tour in 2000, it isn’t that those guys are forbidding or larger than life. They smile, they joke, they talk about how much the crowd’s support means to them. But they perform with exuberant precision. Shaggy and good-natured, One Direction doesn’t.

Harry Styles Shows off New Tats as He Hits the Beach With Taylor Swift

Harry Styles isn't shy about showing off his ink.

After getting a new arm tattoo in Los Angeles last month with girlfriend Taylor Swift in tow, the One Direction singer put his new tats on display as he hit the beach in the Caribbean with the "I Knew You Were Trouble" pop star Saturday.

Clad in colorful swim trunks, Styles revealed his most recent inkings—angel wings on his chest and a large ship on his arm.

The lovey-dovey duo, who soaked up the sun in the British Virgin Islands, parted ways Monday with Styles returning to the U.K., according to radio station Capital FM.

Swift and Styles have been almost inseparable in the past few weeks, canoodling around the globe and ringing in the New Year with one super long kiss.

Beyoncé, Sean Penn Jr. Top Our Most Anticipated R&B Albums Of 2013!

The-Dream, The Weeknd and Bridget Kelly also land on our list of LPs we can't wait to download.

No writers were harmed in the making of this list, but it's worth mentioning that I nearly "put them paws" on an esteemed colleague who argued that Beyoncé belonged on his Most Anticipated Pop Albums — in the pleasant company of Selena Gomez and the JoBros — and not here alongside the architect of her megahit "Single Ladies" or, say, the opening act she hand-picked for her Revel run.

Yes, Queen Bey's rule spans the globe, but she's an R&B singer from her head to her Louboutins. That was never more clear than on her critically acclaimed last album, 4, which found Ms. Knowles bravely doing an about-face from the radio-ready formula of Sasha Fierce in favor of low-simmering heat like "1+1" and the Grammy-nominated "Love on Top." Bey may not have burned up the charts but she helped renew our faith in soul music.

And it wasn't just Beyoncé who went to bat for rhythm and blues. 2012 saw the genre waging a comeback with assists from acts like Frank Ocean and the Weeknd. We're just as hopeful for the crop of discs scheduled to drop this calendar year, our Most Anticipated R&B Albums of 2013.

Move Over Rebecca Black & Nicole Westbrook; Meet Tweenchronic

Seven days into the new year and we're already being assaulted by the newest creation from Rebecca Black svengali Patrice Wilson. It's the adorable gangsta rap duo Tweenchronic with their musical act of terrorism, "Skip Rope." Watching videos like this we can only assume Patrice Wilson, an apparently middle-aged adult who works exclusively with tween girls to make the most aurally offensive trash videos on the web, must be exacting vengeance on the human race for some perceived wrong he feels he suffered.

So that you don't have to endure the entire video, here are the most objectionable parts: 0:39, a tween pretends to be a drug dealer; 1:33, tweens pretend to drink 40's out of paper bags; 1:59, a tween pretends to be a super-happy drug addict; 2:17, tweens pretend to shower themselves either with cocaine or...dear God; 2:44, Patrice Wilson proves he's a less talented rapper than children; 3:35, just advance to 3:35 okay?


'The Biggest Loser' recap: What about da kids?

"The Biggest Loser" is back for Season 14. We could talk about Jillian Michael's return on sky-high heels. Or the jaw-dropping moment when Nikki said, "I'm gonna take the door." Or the fact that T.C. lost 15 pounds in one week and yet was still sent home for not losing enough weight. But, really, there's just one thing to talk about: The kids.

The decision to add three teenagers to the cast this year has been fraught with controversy, condemned sight unseen. The National Assn. to Advance Fat Acceptance called the decision "appalling." The show's executive producer, Lisa Hennessy, defended the decision as a necessary first step to start a national dialogue about the growing problem of childhood obesity, and asked skeptics to hold their fire until viewing Sunday night's season opener.

The uproar hit such a fever pitch over the weekend, that the show took the unusual step of issuing a statement Saturday afternoon responding: "As you'll see, the kids are handled with great care, support and encouragement to help them live a healthier lifestyle."

So. You've seen the season opener.

There's certainly an argument to be made that reality TV has no business putting kids in the limelight. There is just no telling how it might impact young lives 20 years from now. (And don't we already suspect that growing up in the spotlight played a role in young celebrities who have gone off the rails, like Lindsay Lohan?) But that train has long ago left the station, pulling railcars set aside for Honey Boo Boo, "Toddlers and Tiaras," "Kate Plus 8," etc. Against this backdrop, how do you think the show did?

Do you have any trouble believing 13-year-old Biingo will follow through on his plan: "I'm here to change America!"

Taylor Swift And Harry Styles Break Up After Blowout.

After Taylor Swift, 23, and One Direction boy bander Harry Styles, 18, shared a kiss on New Year's Eve in New York City following Swift's Times Square performance, the couple jetted off for a romantic holiday in Virgin Gorda — but not everything went according to plan.

On Friday, Jan. 4, Swift caught the first flight out of Virgin Gorda and headed back to the states after getting into a heated argument with Styles that ended the two-month relationship, according to a source close to One Direction.

Styles, meanwhile, island-hopped over to Richard Branson's private Necker Island as soon as Swift departed.

"Richard Branson heard Harry was staying nearby so invited him to come check out Necker," the source tells Business Insider. "So when Taylor left for the states, Harry went to Branson's island for the day to let off some steam."

While Styles only stayed on Necker Island for a short while and later returned to Virgin Gorda solo, a source says "he did plenty of partying and was definitely enjoying himself while hanging out with guests. He returned to Virgin Gorda in the early morning hours looking like he had a raucous night."


More Details on Donald Glover's Role In Girls.

Well... some of you asked for it, so you're getting it.

You'll recall last year's hoopla over the lack of diversity in Lena Dunham's hit HBO series, Girls (although, it's questionable whether it all was genuine, or fabricated to generate conversation and press around the series); soon after, it was revealed that Donald Glover would be joining the series' cast this season, I suppose in response to calls for more *color* on the show.

At the time, it wasn't know what role exactly Glover would play; but now we do know.

Tim Goodman's review of the new season of the series (which debuts on January 13) in The Hollywood Reporter last Friday gives us some of the 411:

[Mild Spoiler...you have been warned.]Season two starts with a pretty big -- and unexplained -- jump. Hannah is now dating a handsome black Republican named Sandy (Donald Glover)... When Sandy calls out Hannah’s knowledge of race and its ramifications, she goes on a self-righteous, defensive rant, and Sandy says, “You just said a Missy Elliott lyric.” There are attacks on fixie bikes, rich white girls dating black men, iPad-using gay DJs, what constitutes a “pretty person’s job,” and the smug cynicism of youthful people who haven’t earned the right to it.

Justin Bieber “Fans” Start #cuttingforbieber Trend to Protest Singer’s Alleged Drug Use

This is horrifying.

On Monday, Justin Bieber fans — or users posing as the pop star’s supporters as part of a sick hoax — got #CutForBieber and #CuttingForBieber to trend on Twitter, showing shocking photos of allegedly slashed wrists, blades and blood.

The supposed “fans” posted the upsetting images along with messages pleading with Bieber to stop smoking marijuana, as he appeared to be doing in photos released this past weekend.

The barrage of gruesome pictures and tweets referencing self-harm as a method of “protesting” Bieber’s alleged drug use sparked sympathy, outrage and disgust.

Observers rightly pointed out that any potentially fabricated photos diminish the real mental health and self-esteem issues related to cutting.

Many Twitter users responded by posting “cutting for Bieber” pictures of themselves using scissors to cut paper.

While it’s not clear how legitimate the original #CutForBieber photos were, what is not debatable is how serious the issue of self-harm is for millions of young people.

It’s just not acceptable to joke about wrist-cutting and self-abuse in any context.

Gossip Cop hopes Monday’s “cutting” trends don’t inspire any actual self-harm among young social media users increasingly comfortable in a digital culture that glorifies dark, disturbing voyeurism.

Chaz Bono: I'm Saving to Buy a Penis


As you know, Chaz Bono, 42, has been through some changes lately. He started off as a girl named Chastity, the sole offspring of singers Cher and Sonny Bono; appeared on their TV show in the mid-Seventies as a cute little girl with curly locks, waving at the audience; came out as a lesbian in 1995; reconsidered her sexual identity a few years later; started testosterone treatments to become a dude; got a mastectomy to remove her breasts; started lifting weights; can presently curl 25 pounds with each hand; started going shirtless as often as he could, because, damn it, he was a man now and he could; got on the Dancing With the Stars TV program; was variously called a basketball, a penguin and an Ewok; got booted off after six weeks; has continued to stay in the news, what with Warren Beatty's transgender son calling him a misogynist and him proposing to his girlfriend, Jennifer Elia, 36, atop the Seattle Space Needle, and then breaking up with her in December. It's enough to make your head spin. What's not generally known, however, is that, ever since the end of DWTS, Chaz has been studying his finances, adding up the credits and debits, and is pretty sure that within a short while he will finally be able to afford to get himself a penis.

He says he's never felt better. He no longer numbs himself with painkillers and booze, for instance, and he no longer loses himself for days at a time in video games, though he still likes to play them. He has stopped smoking, too; it was quite an ordeal, until he learned of a certain frightening possibility if he continued.

"The way I had my top surgery done," he says, "they take your nipples off, and from your old nipples, they make male nipples. They totally re-craft them, let's say, and then they graft them back on. So it's a graft, and grafts don't always heal, and then this transgender guy that my girlfriend met said, 'I know people who were smokers whose nipples have fallen off.' When she told me that, that was all the incentive I needed. I went cold turkey."

Lara Pulver Talks Sherlock Series 3

Lara Pulver Gives Sherlock S3 Update

Lara Pulver, who made waves playing Irene Adler back in Season 2 of the BBC’s Sherlock, opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, spoke about the highly-anticipated, but delayed, Season 3 this morning at the TCA Press Tour.

While promoting her new David S. Goyer/Starz series Da Vinci’s Demons, Pulver was asked about returning to Sherlock as Irene Adler.

As for future appearances of Irene Adler, she’s not dead,” Pulver smiled. “[Sherlock] did save her at the end of the episode, however I have no idea, as yet, if she’ll appear in Season 3. I believe we’re due to start shooting Season 3 any day now, but both of the boys are big movies stars with stuff to promote, so getting everyone in one room and on schedule, I think, is a little tricky right now.”

“However, it’s a show that we’re all extremely passionate about
,” Pulver continued. “It’s a gift of a role. And it’s funny, because you can do 10 episodes of a big BBC or HBO show and you never know what’s going to pop. And for me, [it was] that 90-minute episode of Sherlock. I think it was a culmination of it being extremely well written, beautifully shot by Paul McGuigan and it already had the momentum of the first season. And it was just a gift of a role that I thoroughly enjoyed and had a lot of fun playing. Therefore, would I go back? In a heartbeat. For sure.

Sherlock Season/Series 3 will likely premiere in late 2013 for the U.K and in 2014 for the U.S.

The divorce order was signed just three days after Christmas -- and according to the docs, Buzz' ex-wife Lois Driggs Cannon gets pretty much half his fortune ... including 50% of a $475,000 bank account, and 50% of the profits from his businesses, trademarks, and stocks.

FYI -- Buzz owns the trademark to the "Astronaut with Flag" design ... pretty cool.

Lois also gets to keep her 1988 Mercedes as separate property -- but the hilarious part ... her license plate reads "MOONGAL." So she'll probably wanna change that.

As for spousal support, Buzz has agreed to pay Lois $9,500 a month ... plus 30% of his annual income, estimated at more than $600,000. They have no kids.

Buzz filed for divorce in June 2011 after 23 years of marriage.

'The Voice' Coaches Dish on New Season

It looks like Adam Levine is off the hook for the upcoming season of The Voice, as Blake Shelton has a new man crush on Usher.

During the Television Critics Association Press Tour on Sunday, the singers revealed that Shelton's uncomfortable advances towards Levine -- done in jest -- have now been turned to the newest male addition on the coaching panel.

"He's left me for Usher now," Levine joked. "So he gets to spend the season making Usher feel uncomfortable."

"And I think I'm doing a really good job of that, by the way," Shelton added. "I've said and done about everything that crosses the line."

While Shelton's focused on Usher, the rest of the fellas seem to have eyes for Shakira, who will also be joining the show for the upcoming season.

"She's so sexy," said host Carson Daly.

"She's a sweetheart," Levine agreed.

Season four of The Voice premieres March 25 on NBC. Watch the video for more.


Heidi Klum's Sex Secrets+19 Other Stars Who've Overshared Personal Details About Their Private Lives

TMI, Heidi Klum.

The supermodel-turned-TV show host got candid -- too candid -- in a new interview with Marie Claire, revealing details about her divorce, new relationship and, ahem, kinky sex life.

"Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring. If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while," she confesses, adding, "It’s good to make an effort to dress up sometimes, to do things outside of the norm."


But Klum isn't the only star to overshare personal details about her bedroom lifestyle.

The Walking Dead Game: Creating Clementine

This year’s most beloved protagonist isn’t a war hero, assassin, or space marine; she’s an eight-year-old girl. Yes, there’s something about Clementine, and when she stepped onto the screen in Telltale’s The Walking Dead with her oversized blue-and-white baseball cap, messy hair, wide eyes, and angelic voice, everything changed. This zombie apocalypse is different; it isn’t about mindlessly killing zombies, escaping from Boomers, or hiding out in a mall. The experience centers on keeping one little girl safe, and we do things we never imagined we’d do just to hear her speak another line of dialogue.

Clementine isn’t just a collection of polygons on a television screen. She’s broken through the barrier, securing a place in the hearts of many – a feat most video game characters never accomplish. How did Telltale create one of the most magnetic characters to grace our TV screens? We sat down with some of the masterminds behind Clementine at Telltale – writer and creative lead Sean Vanaman, art director Derek Sakai, and voice actress Melissa Hutchison – to discover how one little girl came to life and became a beacon of light in a hopeless journey.

Kind of a tl;dr but very interesting. I usually hate child characters but I loved Clementine, majority if not all of my choices catered towards what Clementine wanted even if I didn't agree.

Today, at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, J.J. Abrams was in attendance to talk about what fans can expect when the NBC drama series Revolution returns with new episodes on March 25th.  As usual, the ever busy executive producer was giving of his time and took a few moments to chat about some of his upcoming and current projects.  Abrams gave updates about the Alfonso Cuarón supernatural drama series for NBC, the futuristic robot cop series that Joel Wyman is developing, that he has not yet seen the Fringe finale but that the script was incredibly emotional, how far along the next Mission: Impossible film is, if there’s anything he’s written in the past that he’d still love to be able to get into production, how excited he is for people to see Star Trek Into Darkness, and how difficult it is to maintain the mystery and secrecy for his projects.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

'Deception' Debuts Tonight On NBC; Show Creators See No Need To Call Attention To Race

“I guess the way it all shook out, (the ethnicity of [Meagan] Good and [Laz] Alonso) is a way of sort of dealing with race without actually having to talk about it... But it’s not something we really talk about too much in the writers room…I just think it is sort of there. I’m not sure what we could put in the characters’ mouths that would speak louder than the fact of what you’re looking at on-screen.”

Words from Deception showrunner Liz Heldens at TCA over the weekend, adding that, according to Deadline, that the show wasn't written specifically with black actors/characters in mind, but that when Meagan Good auditioned for the part initially, "she just walked in and owned it. It was fantastic."

She also described it as a TV hybrid of Donnie Brasco and Sabrina, saying that season 1 would reveal to the audience who the killer is, and season 2 (I guess they're optimistic it'll be renewed for a second season) will be about Good's character, who believes she knows who the killer is, proving it.

Thoughts on the pilot? And no, it is not like Scandal

Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson leads tributes after sound editor dies in New Zealand rafti

Hopkins drowned on Sunday after his raft capsized in a river on the North Island.


Oscar-winning sound editor Mike Hopkins, who worked on the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and other blockbusters, has died in a rafting accident in New Zealand.
Police senior sergeant Carolyn Watson said Hopkins, 53, drowned on Sunday after his raft capsized in a river on the North Island.
A river contractor, Bruce Slater, and his son used a jet boat to rescue Hopkins' wife Nicci, who had been in the Waiohine River for two hours and was clinging to a ledge in a narrow part of the gorge too dangerous for bigger boats or a helicopter.
Mr Slater told Fairfax New Zealand the flash flood raised the river two to three meters (9.8ft) while the rafters were in the water.
"If they'd been half an hour earlier, they would have been clear of the gorge," he said.
Half an hour later, the water levels would have been noticeably dangerous before the rafters launched, Mr Slater added.

‘Vogue Italia’ Features Its First-Ever Asian Cover Model


Vogue Italia, the magazine known for taking a stand against anorexia and promoting the use of black models in fashion, made another statement this week, putting an Asian woman on its cover for the first time.

Chinese model Fei Fei Sun covers the magazine’s January issue (out worldwide Monday), a celebration of the multicultural, border-free facets of fashion. Editor in chief Franca Sozzani, who works as a Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations’ Fashion 4 Development Project, chose Sun for the honor.

“In the images, Fei Fei perfectly embodies a timeless idea of an extremely chic, beautiful woman,” Sozzani tells WWD. “In this world, beauty is king and it’s something that brings people together with no national and racial limits.”

Sun has previously modeled in campaigns for brands like Calvin Klein and Diesel, and first hit the runway at London Fashion Week in 2009. She’s starred in editorials for British Vogue, as well.

According to the Daily Mail, French Vogue was the first European magazine to put an Asian model on its cover — Chinese supermodel Du Juan, in 2011. And while both British and American editions of Vogue have featured Asian models in spreads, neither has selected an Asian woman for its cover … yet. Tell us: Are you disappointed at the lack of diversity in the fashion world?

well Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B are done.

well not officially, but it seems ABC's effort to help the shows moving them to sunday night did not help AT ALL :*( Don't Trust was flawless as usual (lol @ James and 'lay it on me') lastnight, and HE was actually kinda dumb. The only ep I liked so far has been the one where Brad is the trophy husband. Anyways, loved Once (i kinda want Regina evil again, she's so fierce when she is, Revenge (lol @ fake-up) and The Good Wife.

Cougar Town’s cul-de-sac crew may have gotten a new address, but they are the same old, Penny Can-playing, wine-chugging, idiom definition-changing group we loved on ABC.

Last we left Jules (Courteney Cox) and her gang there, she had just married Grayson (Josh Hopkins), and her son Travis (Dan Byrd) drunkenly told one of her best friend, Laurie (Busy Philipps), he loved her. Bobby (Brian Van Holt) was still living on his boat, Andy (Ian Gomez) was still hanging on Bobby’s every word, and Ellie (Christa Miller) was not-so-silently judging them all.

Now, though, Cougar Town lives on TBS, and the fun is just getting started for Season 4. What can you expect from the cul-de-sac crew this season?

Cougar Town premieres on TBS on Tuesday at 10PM.

Leonard Nimoy is here to tell you about NASA’s Ion-Thrusting Dawn Mission

With all the excitement over NASA's recent success (and plans for future missions) on Mars, people sometimes overlook the Agency's other deep space missions. And there are many. One of our favorites of these lesser-known (but still remarkable) missions is Dawn.

The Dawn mission revolves around the exploration of Vesta and Ceres, the two largest known asteroids in our solar system. The Dawn spacecraft entered orbit around Vesta in July of 2011, departed in September 2012, and has been making its way for Ceres ever since, with a scheduled orbital insertion date of February 2015. In doing so, Dawn will become the first spacecraft to orbit two different solar system bodies (excepting Earth, of course). In this great little video, Leonard Nimoy joins NASA researchers in explaining what kind of science is underway aboard the Dawn spacecraft, and what lies ahead for the intrepid little ion-thrusting orbiter. Oh, did I forget to mention? Dawn is also also the first purely exploratory mission in history to make use of ion propulsion. Yes, Dawn has ION PROPULSION ENGINES. Three of them, to be exact. To reiterate: Dawn brings the awesome.

Brent Musburger, 73, comments on AJ McCarron’s girlfriend

The first half of the BCS championship game needed something entertaining, so enter AJ McCarron's girlfriend Katherine Webb, and Brent Musburger's comments on her.

With the score already 14-0 in the first quarter, the ESPN cameras found Webb, who was sitting with McCarron's mom, Dee Dee Bonner, and this exchange took place with Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit:

After calling Webb, who is Miss Alabama, a "lovely lady," 73-year-old Musburger started to provide some analysis.

"You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women," Musburger said. "What a beautiful woman."

"Wow!" Herbstreit said.

"Whoa!" Musburger chimed in.

"AJ's doing some things right down in Tuscaloosa," Herbstreit said.

"If you're a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pop," Musburger said.

Should have been UO in the BCS Bowl tbh

Benedict Cumberbatch on playing a villain: Will 'Star Trek' feel his wrath?


They share the face and the brandy-hued baritone, but you could never mistake Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch for the prickly savant of the BBC’s Baker Street — not only is the actor relentlessly polite he’s also never clubbed a cadaver in the name of scientific inquiry. The sleuth may have shined through for a moment last summer though when Cumberbatch showed a Holmesian impatience for unanswered questions and state secrets. “It’s achingly irritating,” Cumberbatch said when asked about the secrecy surrounding his role in this May’s Star Trek Into Darkness. “Believe me, I’d rather talk about the role and the fantastic story and all the things J.J. [Abrams] has come up with. And then everyone would be as excited about the film as I am. But then of course I think I would be on a phone call coming from J.J.’s office…”

Abrams directed the eleventh film in a Starfleet series, 2009’s well-reviewed Star Trek, which beamed up $258 million in domestic box office to set the 30-year-old franchise’s new record ($110 million by Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in 1986 dropped to second). At Paramount Pictures, all of that and the film’s strong showing in home-video sales and rentals has stoked expectations for the sequel — which has only intensified the already notorious Abrams zeal for script and set secrecy.

Ryan Lochte lands E! reality show

Ever wonder what would Ryan Lochte do? You are about to find out.

E! has given the Olympic swimming star his own reality show. The network ordered six episodes of What Would Ryan Lochte Do, which will take viewers “inside the unpredictable and offbeat life of the 2012 London Olympic Games’ breakout star.”

A sneak peek of the show was screened for reporters, in which Lochte came off a tad, well, dense. “I don’t even know what is a douchebag,” the swimmer said when asked about being called the term. “I don’t even know what it means.”

“How many people fall in love with the smartest guy in the class? They fall for the fastest swimmer,” E! President Suzanne Kiln told EW.

The show will follow Lochte as he hunts for the “right gal” and continues his training regimen. E! promises the show, which debuts in April, will also feature plenty of unfiltered “Lochteisms,” such as this quote: “I always pee in a pool. Doesn’t everyone?”

cannot wait tbh!!

The 23-year-old country singer and the 18-year-old One Direction heartthrob were spending a post-New Year’s holiday vacation together in the British Virgin Islands when they reportedly had a big fight, which ended in Taylor leaving the topical locale a day before Harry, according to Page Six.
