Hulk Hogan opens restaurant , files lawsuit, dick remains too bomb




Wrestler turned reality TV star Hulk Hogan launches his own restaurant.

The 59 year old opened the doors to the Hogan's Beach venue in Tampa, Florida Monday and he hopes his fame will bring customers flocking to the venue, reports contactmusic.com.

"It's going to be Jimmy Buffett's (Margaritaville) times 10; Hooters times 10. It's a logical extension of the Hogan brand, with my image and likeness," he told tampabay.com.

"In 36 years I've become so tangible to the public, and not just Americans. We have a chance to have an international draw. I see myself almost like a general manager, creatively," he added.

Beyonce has shrine dedicated to Beyonce <3


Beyoncé has to remind herself of just how much (and why, and how) she rules the world. To that end, the pop star keeps a meticulous, borderline-crazy sounding “archive room” in her midtown Manhattan office.

According to a GQ article: "There, across from the narrow conference room in which you are interviewing her, is another long, narrow room that contains the official Beyoncé archive, a temperature-controlled digital-storage facility that contains virtually every existing photograph of her, starting with the very first frames taken of Destiny’s Child, the ’90s girl group she once fronted; every interview she’s ever done; every video of every show she’s ever performed; every diary entry she’s ever recorded while looking into the unblinking eye of her laptop.

Honey Boo Boo Thanksgiving Sneak Peak..

What were you thankful for on Thanksgiving? Personally I was grateful to TLC for giving us Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

So imagine my delight when the cable channel released this afternoon a clip from the upcoming Honey Boo Boo Thanksgiving special.

This early morning scene which shows the whole family deep in slumber may be the best thing I’ve ever seen. Ain’t that purty? Hard to believe you don't hear no snoring. And to see Mama June coming awake and scratching her back with a ladle? Priceless.

This clip also is a reminder of why they use subtitles when Mama speaks. Boy, howdy.

30 Rock Visits Jimmy Fallon and Octavia Spencer Guests on Last Night's Episode

30rock


The Cast with Jimmy Fallon

For the first time since the wrap party, the entire cast of 30 Rock assembled on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. What started with Tracy Morgan's perfectly adapted cover of... wait for it, Boyz II Men's "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," developed into a sweet dishfest on the mistakes averted, the tricky scripts, and the tears, oh, the tears. Apparently, the whole crew had taken turns crying at each cast member's final shot on the finale set scheduled to air Jan. 31.[Spoiler (click to open)]"In my last shot... it was me with no lines, running on a treadmill for five seconds," Tina Fey said in her nuanced spoiler. "I was like crying on the treadmill."Tracy Morgan recalled having to put a stop on Lorne Michaels who had originally intended to name his character Boo Boo Jordan; Alec Baldwin remembers meeting X-rated-Tina at the gym; and Jane Krakowski commented on the lightning-crack-speed of the script through the seasons. They made such a cute, delightful bunch, thank God for syndication. Enjoy their camaraderie in the video ahead. (video won't embed  )

Demi Lovato - The Sober Living House Is My Home!



Demi Lovato s rich and famous, and can afford to live just about anywhere she wants ... but we've learned she's been living in a fairly spartan sober living facility for more than a year.

It's actually pretty awesome ... Demi does not want to fall back into the grip of addiction, where she found herself back in 2010, when she admitted she had problems with anorexia, bulimia and cutting.

After going to rehab, the 20-year-old seemed better, but ultimately felt she needed the support and guidance from counselors and other addicts who understood her situation.

Union J's Jaymi Hensley gets huge new tattoo


There must be something in whatever it is they're feeding boybands these days and Union J's Jaymi Hensley is the latest to join the tattoo club, revealing that he's just got a fancy new design.
It's not exactly a delicate little inking either and is SO MASSIVE that it appears to have taken over the X Factor contestant's entire right arm, alien invasion style.

Apparently Jaymi decided to get the inking to cover up a smaller tattoo he already had and seems ot have used his time on the X Factor as inspiration.
Sadly he didn't seem to share our idea that the most appropriate choice of design should've involved some sort of ode to Louis Walsh's hair transplant and opted for a slightly more simplistic microphone instead.
"YEAH BUDDDDY!!! My new tattoo @adrenalintattoo #lovingit #unionjtattoos," he tweeted. [sic]

Lindsay not "stupid and irresponsible" to drive drunk, but rest of the NY Times story is true


Lindsay Lohan admits ... she was a bit of a pain in the ass on the set of "The Canyons" ... but she's adamant she did NOT drink and drive.

Sources close to the actress tell TMZ ... Lohan is well aware of the article published in the New York Times chronicling the madness that went down during the production of the movie.

Lohan is telling friends ... most of the stories in the article are TRUE -- she was late a few times, she was nervous about getting naked and she argued with producers ... but LiLo says stuff like that happens all the time on movie sets, so it's no big deal.

But we're told Lindsay says the allegations that she boozed on set and got behind the wheel of a car afterward are totally bogus. She claims she's not that stupid and irresponsible.


When there WAS booze on the set, sources close to Lohan say it was provided by the director Paul Schrader -- who would often pour vodka shots for the crew at the end of a shooting day. Lindsay swears she didn't partake in the alcoholic festivities.

In the end, Lindsay says she's not mad about the article -- and still has a good relationship with everyone she worked with, including producers, co-stars and even the director -- who she claims has already approached her about a new project.

The feeling's mutual for 'Canyons' producer Braxton Pope -- who called TMZ Live yesterday, and did verbal backflips to say how "excellent" Lindsay was ... and claimed the benefits of having her in the film "far outweighed" the challenges.

NAGL.


The first official portrait of Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, popularly known by her former name Kate Middleton, was unveiled in London on Friday, and opinion was sharply divided over an image many deemed unflattering.

The 31-year-old, who as a glamorous future queen is one of the world's most photographed women, is portrayed in the large canvas with a faint smile, long, copper-tinted hair and shadow under her eyes.

Award-winning artist Paul Emsley, surrounded by a scrum of international news crews at the National Portrait Gallery where the work was revealed, described the duchess as a "wonderful subject" and "generous as a person".

"The brief was that it should be a portrait which in some way expressed her natural self rather than her official self," he said.

"When you meet her, that really is appropriate. She really is that kind of a person. She's so nice to be with and it's genuine and I felt if the painting can convey something of that then it will have succeeded."

Evan "Don't Call Me Rachel!" Wood and Jamie Bell expecting first child



After secretly tying the knot late last year, Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have an even bigger surprise for 2013: There's a baby on the way! "Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell confirmed that they are expecting their first child later this year," a rep for the pregnant actress, 25, and actor, 26, tells Us Weekly exclusively. "The couple is thrilled."

It's just the latest unexpected news for the Hollywood twosome, who got married in California on Oct. 30 in a top-secret bash, where the Mildred Pierce actress wore a custom Chantilly lace mermaid gown by Carolina Herrera. The British-born Man on a Ledge actor first met Wood in 2005, when they costarred together in Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends" video. After splitting in 2006, they reunited in summer 2011 -- with Bell proposing in early 2012.

Back in November, Wood shot down false speculation that she was expecting. "Sorry to disappoint. But no baby on the way here," the True Blood star (once engaged to Marilyn Manson) tweeted after she was photographed touching her stomach and wearing a baggy poncho at an L.A. grocery store.

"Justice League" can't find a director, may be pushed to 2016; Ridley Scott passes

Pictured: Batman with a devoted fan

As we all know a number of names have been associated with directing the Justice League movie, from Christopher Nolan to David Yates to Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder; however, they have all seemingly passed on the project. Our source gave us a name of another that has decided not to do the Justice League movie and it's Ridley Scott.

Our source also tells us that Warner Bros. has the director list down to a definite five list of names who would be interested. We're told they will be expected to pitch their version of the movie, and if everything goes according to plan, an announcement should be made anytime within the next three months with filming "expected" to begin by the end of the year.

However, if everything doesn't go smooth, and unless negotiations and formalities are sped up, the Justice League movie may get pushed back to 2016.

Will Beall is writing the script, with it rumored that Darkseid will play the Justice League movie villain, which currently has a 2015 release.

Short version - this project is toxic and no one wants to touch it. Sounds like one of two things are happening - the script is shit, or DC/WB is being super stringent over creative control issues.

The Fifty Shades Hypocristy Wagon Rolls On

The Fifty Shades of Grey Biography That Wasn't
A tiny Yorkshire publishing house made waves when it announced plans to print a 'biography' of Christian Grey. Then came the scary threats from some bigshot lawyers.

The publishing world erupted in a frenzy when a small West Yorkshire publishing company promised to deliver the "unauthorised biography" of Fifty Shades of Grey's controversial heartthrob Christian Grey.

Within an hour of the Bookseller revealing details of the forthcoming book, the Hebden Bridge-based independent publishers Bluemoose Books were inundated with requests, including from 20 different European and north American publishers asking to buy the rights to the "biography". They even had Hollywood on the phone - Universal Studios wanted to buy the film rights.

The book was to offer a psychological insight into Grey before he became famous, his "childhood, educational background, rapid rise in business, years of international travel and his string of relationships and select sexual proclivities," as written by a fictional former classmate of Grey's, Dominic Cutmore, and was due to be published last October.

The only problem was Bluemoose Books did not actually own the rights to such a book – nor did it have the funds to print such a book – nor, in fact, did it have the book itself. None of its in-house authors had ever read EL James's erotic novel, let alone written fan fiction purporting to tell the tale of how a troubled young chap grew up to be the tall, dark and handsome man of every woman's dreams. (Every woman willing to submit to his darkest and kinkiest sexual desires, at least.)

Yoko Ono & Sean Lennon to deliver comments on fracking regulations

Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon plan to present dozens of boxes to Legislative Office Building today. Those boxes will be filled with comments from New Yorkers regarding Governor Cuomo's newly proposed fracking regulations.

Today marks the end of a 30-day comment period on his administration's draft fracking regulations.

Many disagree with the Cuomo's administration’s decision to release the proposed fracking regulations before its own health review has been completed and made public.

Others opposing the controversial drilling method say they don't believe regulations can prevent the dangers the fracking poses.

Those in favor of hydrofracking say it will bring a much needed boost to the economy.

Quentin Tarantino: "I'm not your slave and you're not my master."



Quentin Tarantino says he's sick and tired of talking about the connection between movie violence and real violence ... and ERUPTED on a British news reporter who asked about it during an interview about "Django Unchained."

Tarantino was sitting down with Krishnan Guru-Murthy -- a self-proclaimed "fan" of Q's movies -- when he asked, "Why are you so sure that there's no link between enjoying movie violence and enjoying real violence?"

A flustered Tarantino replied, "Don't ask me a question like that ... I'm not biting ... I refuse your question."

When Guru-Murthy asked "why" ... Q explained, "Because I refuse your question. I'm not your slave and you're not my master. You can't make me dance to your tune. I'm not a monkey."

Celebs failing at Twitter seems to be a trend

Should you really tweet that?
Oh, Twitter. When you first launched, people didn’t know what to do with you. “What’s the point of Twitter?” was the common question amongst early adapters. Still, people stuck with it and it’s now become one of the most accessible and versatile social media tools out there. Businesses use it to communicate to their audiences, friends use it to communicate with friends and stalk celebrities, and celebrities use it to&hellip

Well…

Embarrass themselves horribly with things they should probably keep tucked away in their piles of money - to be honest.

We’re talking about those “I can’t believe he/she would tweet that” moments. We’re talking about those times when you can’t decide if you should still be a fan of a celeb because of how stupid he/she now looks. We’re talking about those unforgivable Twitter blunders.

Marlon Wayans Talks In-Depth To S&A About 'Haunted House' + Status Of His Richard Pryor Project



With his found-footage horror-comedy, A Haunted House, scheduled to hit theaters tomorrow today, January 11, 2013, I had the opportunity to chat briefly with star and co-writer Marlon Wayans about that project a couple of months ago, covering as much ground as I could.

Marlon was chatty and forthcoming, which is always good for the interviewer, and I tried to capture the heart of his responses in the transcription below.

And of course, given his long-time attachment to the Richard Pryor film that Chris Rock was producing, which seems to have stalled, I naturally had to ask him about its status.

For those just joining us, directed by Mike Tiddes from a script penned by Wayans and Rick Alvarez, the official synopsis for A Haunted House reads:

In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A HAUNTED HOUSE features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.

Without further ado, here's a summary of our conversation:

Quvenzhane Wallis celebrates Oscar Nom with "pizza, chicken and waffles and good stuff."



Quvenzhane Wallis almost missed her historic moment.

Quvenzhane Wallis nearly slept through Oscar history. The young actress had to be awakened especially early just in time to see the Academy Award nominations. But give her a break, she is 9 years old.

"I almost missed it. I was sleeping," says Wallis.

The Beasts of the Southern Wildstar did wake up in time to hear her name announced as the youngest ever best actress nominee.

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhh," she yells, mimicking the sound she made when she heard the announcement. "Did I ever (yell)."

"It's exciting, this is special," she says, adding she is going to celebrate with "pizza, chicken and waffles and good stuff."


The young Louisiana gir lhas had a whirlwind 2012 since Beasts became a Sundance Film Festival sensation last January. She was only 5 when she auditioned for the lead role and 6 when she shot the film.

Beasts performed audaciously in the nominations, taking four, including best picture, adapted screenplay and director for Benh Zeitlin.

Wallis wasn't sure what she's going to rock the red carpet with next month.

"I don't know what I am going to wear and I don't know who I am going to take, probably my mom," she says. "We're still figuring that out though."

GRRM's episode gets a title change

sansa prayer circle
George R. R. Martin has posted on his Not A Blog that the episode he wrote for Game of Thrones his season, episode seven, has had its title changed. Originally called ‘Autumn Storms’, it will now be titled ‘Chains’.

The episode I scripted for the third season of HBO’s GAME OF THRONES has been retitled.

It was formerly “Autumn Storms,” which I never much liked… but the episode did have a lot of rain in it.

The rain went away. So did the title.

The episode is now “Chains.” I like that better. And it works on both a literal and metaphorical level.

It will still be the seventh show of the season, episode 307.

Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream Trailer



Beyoncé gives fans a rare glimpse into her life in an upcoming HBO documentary, addressing everything from career pressures to her 2011 pregnancy. Yahoo! Music has your first look at the 85-second trailer.

The singer seemed to struggle with trying to keep the news under wraps. “They keep putting me in these tight clothes and trying to hide it,” she says at one point as an image of baby bump appears on screen. “It’s very difficult. I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.” (She famously announced the news on stage at 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.)

She also shows the ultrasound for daughter Blue Ivy, whom she welcomed last year with husband Jay-Z.



Life Is But A Dream aims to prove that, despite her fame, Beyoncé is a normal person. “People see celebrities, and they have money and fame, but I’m a human being,” she adds. “I cry. I get scared. I get nervous just like everyone else.”

Life Is But A Dream airs on February 16 on HBO.

The Jimmy Savile Report

Children as young as eight were abused by Jimmy Savile, a report detailing 50 years of allegations has revealed.

The Met Police and NSPCC outlined offences at 13 hospitals, including Great Ormond Street in London and Wheatfields Hospice in Leeds.

Some 214 crimes were recorded across 28 police force areas, including 34 of rape or penetration, the report said.

The CPS apologised for missing the opportunity to prosecute Savile in 2009, while he was still alive.

Police said the victims' accounts painted a "compelling picture of widespread sexual abuse by a predatory sex offender", and Cdr Peter Spindler, who is leading the investigation, said Savile had "groomed the nation".

And the NSPCC said Savile was one of the most prolific sex offenders in its 129-year history.

Pharrell Talks Working with Miley!


You’ve worked with a lot of different artists in the studio, what is it like working with artist from different genres – for example Tyler, the Creator and Miley Cyrus?
What we all have in common is that we like new stuff, we like making music that doesn’t exist. That’s what Tyler has in common with me and what I have in common with Miley. Put it this way, he heard her music and next thing you know he’s in the picture with her. That’s not what you would expect, but that’s what I love doing: totally surprising people.

Regarding the Miley Cyrus album, how did you approach this? Was it you guiding it or was it a shared collaborative effort?
She is an old soul that was trapped in a younger situation who just bursted at the seams and I was just happy to be there during that transformation.

So it must have been easy and fun working with her?
Yeah for sure, I remember when they use to ask me about the same questions with Justin (Timberlake); people be like why you going in with *NSYNC? Because there’s somebody in there that you don’t know.

Isaiah Washington talks "Blue Caprice," about the D.C. sniper



In Hollywood, it can often be a savvy career move for an actor to break bad. After all, the villains get to have all the fun, with supersize personae that toss out witty retorts slathered with evil relish. But there’s a difference between dastardly baddies like Calvin Candie or Silva and John Allen Muhammad, the real-life Beltway Sniper who terrorized suburban Washington, D.C., a year after 9/11, murdering at least 10 random people with the assistance of his young disciple, Lee Malvo. Their crimes were ruthless and indiscriminate, and after they were caught, convicted — and Muhammad was executed — the explanations only made their actions more horrific. This wasn’t a man who wanted redemption, and to play him on screen demanded a selfless surrender to a blanket of darkness.

...There's going to be wank about this film, isn't there. I admit I'm intrigued, though; I'm always interested when actors go in-depth to play real-life criminals and awful people.

ARGO VS. ZERO DARK THIRTY: TWO TAKES ON TORTURE




When the Academy Award nominations were announced on Thursday morning, Kathryn Bigelow was not on the list for Best Director. That surprised some people; maybe it shouldn’t have. The film she made, “Zero Dark Thirty,” was nominated for Best Picture and four other awards, and she’s won in the past, for “The Hurt Locker.” The problem appears to have been torture—the way it was depicted in the movie, which is about the killing of Osama bin Laden, and her insistence that she was constrained in the story she told by the truth, when, in fact, she veered away from it.

If torture had been the only standard, though, then Ben Affleck might have been nominated for best director for “Argo,” a film that is more self-consciously fictionalized, and yet in many ways more honest—but he was also on the list of snubs. (So was Tom Hooper, the director of “Les Misérables.”) “Argo,” set in Iran during the hostage crisis, is based on the story of how six Americans at the embassy managed to slip away while the compound was being stormed, how Canadian diplomats hid them for months, and how a C.I.A. agent helped get them out by pretending that they were the crew for a science-fiction movie.

Universal Pictures will open Jurassic Park 4 on June 13, 2014, the heart of summer.

Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall are returning to produce the long-awaited next installment in the franchise, although no director or cast is yet attached. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are writing the script.

Spielberg -- who only days ago revealed that Robopocalypse won't be his next directing project -- directed the first two films in the Jurassic Park franchise.

A fourth installment has been in works for years. Jurassic Park III opened in theaters in 2001.

Marshall said in a July 2012 interview that Jurassic Park 4 would still rely on animatronic dinosaurs despite the advancements in technology over the last decade.

So far, the movie has the June 13, 2014 date to itself.

Richard Armitage Talks 'Hobbit' And Thorin Oakenshield, Takes A Phone Call From Sauron



Standing well over 6' tall, with an athletic frame and impeccably coiffed hair, Richard Armitage the silhouette screams matinee idol, which makes it all the more impressive that Richard Armitage the person screams "Dwarf!"

As Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of a band of not so merry dwarves looking to reclaim their ancestral homeland from the ravages of the dragon Smaug in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Armitage takes his first bold, steely-eyed, heroic steps into the world of Middle Earth, embodying with method exactness the badass anti-hero of J.R.R. Tolkien's original.

Before that, though… a little bit of fun. Armitage recently sat down with Movieline in New York City where he revealed the physicality of being a dwarf, his facility for speaking in tongues, his hard fought battle scars, and the number one reason you should always answer an interrupting telephone.

Garrett Hedlund Covers Details Feb 2013 Issue



Garrett Hedlund is the latest actor to cover Details magazine’s February 2013 issue that hits newsstands on January 14.

Here’s what the On The Road actor had to share with the mag:

On how he wooed girlfriend Kirsten Dunst: “I took her out on a 3am canoe ride. It was not a stable canoe. We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, shitty water, like golf-pond water.”

On choosing roles: “I just really wanted to do things that could make me proud or be emotional.”

On journaling his thoughts: “I spill it out as fast as I can. I don’t really edit. In Brazil, recently, I wrote 70 pages. In London, 80 pages.”


A little trivia for you: he’s also a poet. Here’s a poem he wrote: “Everything you ever knew seems so slowly be forgotten. All the good nights are just nights, all the good mornings are just mornings, all the dots in the sky are the same dots you’ve been looking at all your life”

Where Are They Now? The Cast of ‘The Wayans Bros.’

The Wayans have built an empire of entertainment within their family. Everyone from Kim to Damon is involved in comedy, so it was no surprise that Shawn and Marlon created The Wayans Bros. (1995-1999) in the mid ’90s.

At any given time, a person can turn on their TV and catch re-runs of Pops (John Witherspoon) acting up in his diner or Shawn and Marlon’s latest love interest. Similar to Martin, it’s one of those shows that will never get boring.

Fourteen years after the shows end, the cast is still popular in today’s spotlight. Take a look at where they are now!

Britney Spears & Jason Trawick -- SPLIT (Updated!)

0111-britney-spears-jason-trawick-split-breakup-article-3
Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have broken up ... TMZ has learned. 

The couple got engaged back in 2011. Trawick started out as Britney's agent, the duo started dating and he eventually became her co-conservator along with her dad, Jamie Spears

Multiple sources connected to the couple tell TMZ ... Jason didn't want to make the announcement until he was taken off the conservatorship.  Interestingly, lawyers for the conservatorship are in court right now, along with Britney's dad, Jamie Spears, so it's possible Jason will be removed today.

Sources say it was a "friendly breakup" and Britney and Jason will remain friends.  As for why they split, we're told they just "grew apart."

The timing's pretty interesting considering Brit recently changed agencies, heading to CAA ... an indication Trawick was no longer involved in managing her career.

Britney told People.com ...  "Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends."

Trawick also issued a statement saying, "As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever." 

4:17PM PST:  Jason Trawick has just been removed as Britney's co-conservator ... TMZ has learned.  Jamie Spears is once again her sole conservator.

HBO's Enlightened is coming back....THIS SUNDAY!

Trailer for the season premiere:

Interview with creator Mike White

Below are some excerpts from my conversation with White about [...] Enlightened,” a simultaneously hilarious and moving show that stars Laura Dern* as Amy Jellicoe, an unstable consumer products executive on a quest to save the world. White plays Tyler, Amy’s geeky office mate, who gets roped into her scheme to expose corporate malfeasance at the company by leaking documents to the Los Angeles Times. The show’s second season premieres on Sunday.

There’s something about Laura’s character that makes her alternately endearing and infuriating.

I think it’s important if you want to sustain people’s interest over a long period of time to make it feel like she’s a real person—flawed and even maybe annoying, but endearing too. One of the reasons I feel that reality TV is interesting to me as a viewer is because you are seeing people who are exactly that. One minute you can’t believe what they are doing. They are annoying, oblivious and self-righteous. And then, the next minute you feel for them, and they are vulnerable. And to me, you want to be able to at least come close to that as a scripted TV writer, to create characters that feel as dimensional. You don’t want to feel like reality TV characters are stealing your thunder.

Filming on One Direction's concert movie will begin this weekend.

Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will start work on the 3D project in Tokyo, Japan.

Spurlock says the technology is not popular with everyone, but "once they can crack that nut of having a true 3D experience where you don't have to have those glasses or sit at a certain angle, it will become a conversation again."

IT'S A BUFFY MEGA POST!!! Behind the Scenes, Emma wants on The Walking Dead, and a funny Buffy/Twlig



One of the saddest things about Joss Whedon's seminal series Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the lack of behind-the-scenes stuff from the show. While most DVD collections are teeming with extras, Buffy has always been left wanting. Until now, that is.

Enter stunt coordinator Jeff Pruitt, who recently unearthed a whole mess of never-before-seen stuff from the show's many fight sequences. While this may not mean catching a lot of cutesy banter among the cast, it does offer a really unique insight into the anatomy of a fight sequence. After all, how do you make a tiny blond girl seem stronger than a horde of hulking demons?

Survivor Caramoan - Fans Vs Favorites Cast Officially Announced!



Collapse )


Survivor 26 premieres with a 2 hour episode, Wednesday February 13th, 2013 on CBS!

A lot of generic young girls on the "fans" tribe... Probst has been hyping this season quite a bit so hopefully it turns out as good as the last season! Not too excited to see Brandon's or Phillip's crazy asses but I'm hopeful for Andrea, Brenda, and Malcolm.

Obligatory, yes, this show is still on the air.

White House rejects petition urging U.S. to build a 'Death Star'



The White House says building a Death Star would be an out-of-this-galaxy waste of money — not only because it's against government policy to blow up planets, but also because the United States already has access to a space station as well as a laser-wielding space robot.

Today's official statement on the Death Star issue, titled "This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For," was written by Paul Shawcross, chief of the science and space branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget. It comes in response to a "We the People" petition that called on the federal government to start building a Death Star by 2016.

"By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense," the petition read.

The petition garnered more than 25,000 online signatures within a month, partly due to a signing campaign that went viral on 4chan, Reddit and Twitter. Under the Obama administration's rules for the "We the People" program, that required the White House to come up with a reply.

Nicki Minaj’s Hairstylist Quits


Nicki Minaj has been carrying a long face lately while being spotted out at various events and now we know why. Her famous hairstylist has bailed out on her and is no longer a part of the Barbz team.

Last night, Terrence Davidson, the man behind Nicki Minaj’s wig selection for the last three years announced that he has parted ways with the star after a few creative differences. This is sort of a big deal being that Nicki Minaj’s hair has become a huge part of her brand and the last thing she needs right now is to have to look for someone new in the midst of her hectic American Idol schedule. You know how us women are about folks we don’t know touching our hair.

Her hairstylist wrote in a statement:

“I would like to inform the media and supporters that I’ve decided to step away as hair stylist and wig creator for Nicki Minaj. It has been an amazing experience offering me a chance to express my creativity and exhibit my love for the art form of wig design. I have decided to part ways from Nicki Minaj because I would like to explore other opportunities within my own brand and re-energize my creativity through work in fashion editorial, beauty consultations, media personality, ‘how-to’ lectures and hair show development. I am very proud of the body of work built with Nicki Minaj and I appreciate the support over the years from fans who’ve expressed love for my craft. Look forward to seeing me larger than life in 2013”

This could make AI a little more interesting. It may also mean this could be the end of Nicki’s over-the-top hair era. Only time will tell.

The Academy Award Effect: Does Winning Help Black Actors’ Careers?



Now that Oscar season is upon us, a deluge of commentary is sure to crop up on the Web about the various disappointments: the black actors who weren’t nominated, those who were nominated but weren’t deserving, and the default (legitimate) argument that there just aren’t enough quality roles for black actors.

We at Shadow & Act thought it would be fun to take a few steps back and look at the past 20+ years of black Oscar winners and evaluate whether an Oscar is all that it’s cracked up to be, especially if you’re black in Hollywood. What is it really worth in terms of a black actor’s career? What kind of political minefield must one tap dance on? Does it guarantee more money? Are black actors welcomed into the coveted A-List? And perhaps most important: Will said black Oscar winner be working in the next two, three years? And if so, will it be Oscar-caliber work or the same old stereotypes?

In the last two decades, give or take, we’ve seen the largest number of black Oscar winners. Ten to be exact: five men and five women. Regrettably not equally distributed in categories of leading and supporting roles or along gender lines. As we know black actresses have a harder time winning and getting roles as leading ladies.

Let’s take a close look at the 10 Oscar winners, examining whether the Oscar has made a difference, if at all, to their careers.

Of all the points he could make in relation to Viola and Oscars he chooses to talk about black scriptwriters. And not the fact that she ended up guest starring on a TV show and doing Tyler Perry film because Hollywood wasn't checking for her after her first oscar nom and Hollywood still remained unmoved when The Help was at the top of the box office

Portrait of Duchess Is Unveiled, and the Criticism Is Withering



LONDON — They did not necessarily know much about art, but they knew they did not like the way the Duchess of Cambridge looked in her new portrait.

“She looks like the head bouncer in a security firm,” one commenter posted on The Daily Telegraph’s Web site.

The painting, by Paul Emsley, was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery on Friday, and if nothing else, it successfully brought out the inner art critic in even non-art critics.
