Dane Dehaan to star in 'Life After Beth'

Dane DeHaan (‘Metallica: Through The Never,’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ 'Chronicle') has scored the lead in the indie horror comedy ‘Life After Beth.’

Based upon the short film of the same name from 2010, the indie sees DeHaan playing Zach, a young man struggling to continue his relationship with his girlfriend (played by Aubrey Plaza) after she comes back from the dead.

Comedian/actor Paul Reiser (‘Behind the Candelabra,’ ‘Alien’) and Matthew Gray Gubler (‘Criminal Minds,’ ‘500 Days of Summer’) have also joined the cast, with Reiser playing DeHaan's father. As previously reported, John C. Reilly co-stars (as Plaza’s dad).

Principal photography is underway in Los Angeles with ‘I Heart Huckabees’ co-writer Jeff Baena directing.

Amy Adams: "I miss nail polish."

Amy Adams doesn't have much time for pampering now that she's a mom.

The actress has a busy lifestyle, coping with work and looking after her daughter Aviana, who she has with her fiancé Darren Le Gallo.

While she used to make more time for her beauty regime, she's had to tone it down since having three-year-old Aviana.

"I'd love to be able to experiment with different nail colours," she sighed to the latest UK edition of Marie Claire.

"Being a mom, though, I don't have time for regular manicures. Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Beige is my staple polish, because it's low maintenance and it isn't obvious when half of it has chipped off."

Amy is known for her flame-coloured hair and porcelain skin.

While she still likes to show off her stand-out feature, motherhood has made her more aware of the products she uses.

"I used to dye my hair bright red, but I stopped when I was pregnant - I became more aware of the chemicals involved," she explained.

"These days I'll use a toner or colour rinse every now and then, but most of the time I prefer my hair natural."

Amy is fair and has a spatter of freckles. Rather than try to disguise them, the gorgeous 38-year-old embraces her natural beauty.

"I've been experimenting with BB creams recently. I don't like to have a mask of make-up - I prefer my freckles and moles to show, so most days I wear Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser," she revealed.


'Castle' Halts Production for a Day as Nathan Fillion Is a No-Show During Contract Dispute

ABC’s Castle shut down production on Season 6 this past Friday when series lead Nathan Fillion was a no-show on the set, sources confirm for TVLine.

As first reported by our sister site Deadline, Fillion’s absence was likely intended as a “nudge” to his ABC Studios bosses with whom he is in a contract dispute, as he lobbies for a four-day work week.

Kate Moss: Yes to White-Butt, No to White-Boob

In Allure’s August issue, uncharacteristically clothed cover girl Kate Moss gave a favorite suburban staple her seal of approval.

“I don’t mind a bikini bottom. My husband likes lines on the bum—men like white bums, like a frame. . . . I don’t do it on the boobs, though—I try not to have a white boob.”

But while the supermodel—who fronted (and . . . backed) the most recent ad campaign for the self-tanning line St. Tropez—is clearly comfortable baring all, she hasn’t always relished stripping down for the camera. “I used to be so scared about ‘Oh, I don’t want to show my body,’” she told the magazine. “Now that I’ve shown it, it doesn’t bug me about my moles, or ‘This isn’t big enough’ and ‘That’s not smooth enough.’” Oh, Kate, darling: your moles don’t bug us, either.

Emma Roberts steps out after domestic violence arrest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A bruised and bandaged Emma Roberts was spotted one week after her domestic violence arrest -- and based on the pics ... it seems the fight was worse than we thought.

TMZ broke the story -- Emma was taken into custody in Montreal on July 7 after an altercation with boyfriend -- and fellow "American Horror Story" co-star -- Evan Peters.

Montreal law enforcement sources tell us a 3rd party phoned police about an alleged fight in the couple's hotel room -- and when cops arrived -- they found Evan with a bloody nose and a bite mark. Sources close to Emma deny Emma bit Evan.

But in these photos, shot in Beverly Hills on July 14, it looks like Emma didn't exactly emerge unscathed herself -- she has some nasty scars on her knee, black and blue thighs, and a bandage on her left elbow.

Emma was booked into a Montreal jail -- and released the next morning when Evan refused to press charges.

We reached out to Emma's rep -- so far no word back.

Cassadee Pope Premiers Music Video for "Wasting All These Tears" + Discusses Country Roots

Collapse )

When Cassadee Pope joined coach Blake Shelton’s team on TV reality competition “The Voice” in the fall of 2012, she did it as a pop singer. But country star Shelton wasted little time before he started showcasing her voice on his genre’s songs because he's proven that he can't REALLY mentor anyone other than a country singer.

Pope went on to win “The Voice” in December and has since signed a country record deal with Republic Nashville, she has toured with Rascal Flatts and she is set to release her debut album this fall.

But on Tuesday she’ll enjoy another career milestone: her Opry debut. And just because she started out as a pop singer, don’t think the honor is lost on Pope.

“People don’t realize that country music is my background and that’s what I sang as a kid,” she said in an interview with The Tennessean last week. “I went through my rock phase, but now I’m back in a place where I feel the roots coming back from country music. I’m just infusing all of them into one. The Opry has always been something I wanted to do and as a kid I covered all the artists that sang on the Opry stage.”

Pope’s first country single “Wasting All These Tears” is now on country radio and she says she heard it for the first time on the air after tweeting a station and asking them to play it. pro tip Assadee: if you have to request your own song in order to get it played, that's not a good sign.

“The feeling is indescribable,” she says. “You’re hearing a body of work you helped create and had a part of helping it come to life. You think about how many people are listening and what are they thinking right now. It’s such a magical feeling. I hope it happens more often.”

Article Source Video Source

Flop video for a bland song that's already disappeared from the charts despite all her ~hype and promise. Also, keep trying to insist that you wanted to do country all along when you spent your entire time on The Voice insisting you wanted to be a pop-rock singer and badly imitating Kelly Clarkson and Avril Lavigne. Anything to get that $$$$ and fame, right? Also, I expected more class and taste from you, Opry.

Breaking Down the Good, Bad, and Weird of “PACIFIC RIM” + Bonus Jaeger Memes

This weekend, Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim," a monster mash about giant creatures that come through an inter-dimensional portal on the ocean floor and the giant robots constructed to fight them, was neither an outright dud nor a smash. Beaten to number one by "Despicable Me 2," we can't imagine a third place finish was what Warner Bros. had in mind for their $200 million summer movie. Was it too much of a fan letter to nerds and comic book stores for the general public to care? Did the marketing campaign stumble? Did it need an A-list star? We're sure conference rooms at WB today are having meetings asking those exact same questions, but there's also the simple question of whether or not the movie actually delivered.

While a certain segment embraced the approach that riffed on old-school Saturday matinee double-features, anime, manga and trumped-up video games, others found those elements couldn't hit the derivative story, one-dimensional characters and a movie that offered a lot of hollow explosions and special effects (here's our original review). In fact at The Playlist, it has spurred its own numerous discussions in the lobby and we've carried it over to this feature in which we run down the good, the bad, and the just plain weird about "Pacific Rim" (and even some of these points were hotly debated within our ranks). Spoilers roughly the size and shape of a giant robot follow.

Chaz Bono Shirtless and Showing Off Weight loss


Chaz Bono continues to amaze us with his perseverance and if anyone needs further proof that weight loss is achievable, albeit never easy, this photo should definitely do it.

Bono was spotted out in Los Angeles, Calif., yesterday and, to cope with the sweltering heat, took off his shirt as he got out of the car.

The 44-year-old has been up-front and candid about his weight loss in the past. In May, he spoke about losing 65 pounds and how happy he is with what he sees in the mirror. "Physically, my body feels just so much better. I'm in a lot less discomfort when I exercise and am doing physical stuff," he told People. "I just have a lot more confidence, and that feels really cool."

Vulture List: The 25 Best Action Movies Since "DIE HARD"

A quarter of a century ago this week, John McTiernan’s action masterpiece Die Hard was released into theaters, and it's not an understatement to say that we're still reeling from the impact. The film turned one Bruce Willis — until then thought of primarily as a comic actor and harmonica player — into a Hollywood action star, a position he's still convincingly holding down 25 years later. It also unleashed armies of imitators: There was Die Hard on a Ship (a.k.a. Under Siege), Die Hard on a Mountain (a.k.a. Cliffhanger), Die Hard at the Stanley Cup Finals (a.k.a. Sudden Death), and so on, all the way up to this year's double dose of Die Hard at the White House movies (a.k.a. Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down), not to mention Die Hard Beating a Dead Horse (a.k.a. A Good Day to Die Hard, a.k.a. Die Hard 5). It is, in fact, partly thanks to these imitators (as well as the Willis franchise's lesser sequels) that we often forget how expertly made the original Die Hard is: It's as much a perfectly calibrated character piece as it is a kick-ass action flick.

So what has the action landscape looked like since that fateful day in 1988 when we first met John McClane en route to Nakatomi Plaza? For the past few months, I’ve been watching and/or rewatching almost every major action movie made since then in an attempt to come up with the best ones. The good news is that a lot of awesome action movies have been made over the past 25 years. The bad news? Not all of your favorites will be on this list.

#1. Sean Penn Tied Up and Then Beat the Crap Out of Madonna

Sean Penn is known for two things: acting and taking regular shits on right-wing politics. When the phrase "Hollywood liberal" gets tossed around, Penn is often one of the first examples mentioned. The Iraq War was perhaps his finest moment, as he spared no expense in letting the world know exactly how he felt about young people dying for oil. Over and over again.
So it's easy to think of him as a Bono type, a guy who might be annoying, but only because he cares about the suffering in the world too much.

Dianna Agron on Cory Monteith: 'We will always carry a piece of you with us'

It’s been four days since Glee star Cory Monteith died suddenly at the age of 31 — and the actor’s family, friends, and fans are still reeling. Actress Dianna Agron, who played Monteith’s onetime girlfriend on Fox’s hit musical series, has just released the following statement about her fallen comrade:

“I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile. Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry. We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there.

“Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family. My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”

Agron’s words come a day after this statement from reps of Lea Michele, who once fought with Agron for Monteith’s affections on Glee: “Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them. They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.”


Nick Cannon criticized for appearance in video tied to New Black Panther Party

The host's spokesman says his brief comments supporting a September march in New York City for Trayvon Martin were an effort to help African American youth and not tied to the New Black Panther Party.

America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon can be seen in a short video on a website promoting the “Millions For Trayvon” march on Sept. 7 (formerly the Million Youth March) in the Harlem area of New York City, which the Anti-Defamation League says is backed by “the nation’s largest anti-Semitic and racist black militant group."

However, his spokesperson says he in no way supports anti-Semitism or violent black militancy.

“Nick Cannon supports positivity, equality and unity amongst all people,” his publicist Tracy Nguyen said on Tuesday in a statement. “Any efforts to use his name by any organization, including the ADL to assert otherwise is a weak and tacky attempt to generate publicity on a non-issue.”

Nguyen said that the short video featuring Cannon was not something planned or scheduled, but rather he was asked to speak off the cuff when caught at a public event, and, being a nice guy, he made the comments.

From 'Vampire Diaries' to 'Perfect Score,' Arielle Kebbel Puts a New Twist on Dating

Debuting July 16 following the revival of classic improv comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Perfect Score puts a twist on dating by giving contestants the opportunity to win a date with a match as well as the chance to win $50,000 but only if they can find their true match.

David Karp, Tumblr's Founder, on Colbert Report

Tumblr CEO David Karp stopped by the Colbert Report last night, where he talked Tumblr’s future profitability, porn on the site, and why he dropped out of high school at the age of 15.

Early on in the interview, Colbert implies that Karp is “successful” with his Tumblr venture, to which Karp replies:

“Not yet. I’ve got lots to prove. We gotta get this thing to profitability first – that’s a pretty big milestone.”

Since the Yahoo acquisition, Tumblr has already implemented more ads. The previously staunchly anti-ad Karp recently embraced the idea of ads on the network, saying that he hoped advertisers would win Lions awards for their future work on Tumblr.

Addressing the porn issue, which was a big point of contention when Yahoo first announced their Tumblr acquisition (users though that the deal meant censorship was on the way), Karp shied away from the “porn central” label. But he did indicate that they weren’t interested in limiting that type of content.

“Look, we’ve taken a pretty hard line on freedom of speech, supporting our users’ creation – whatever that looks like,” said Karp. “It’s just not something that we want to police.”

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has echoed those sentiments, recently saying that they won’t work to restrict porn, as it’s “the nature of user-generated content.”

World's 4th-ranked women's tennis player DROPPED by church group due to ESPN Body Issue pics

Agnieszka Radwanska has been dropped by a Catholic youth movement shortly after the Polish tennis star appeared nude in ESPN's 2013 "Body Issue."

The Wimbledon women's semi-finalist was photographed sitting in a plastic deckchair beside a pool containing tennis balls in the latest edition of the magazine, which came out last month. Although Radwanska was seated with her bare chest covered by her arms, the tennis star was pictured without a stitch of clothing, sparking controversy within the Church.

The Catholic youth group Krucjata Mlodych, which means Youth Crusade, deemed ESPN's photo shoot as "immoral behavior," and dropped Radwanska from its campaign.

Ahead of posing for ESPN, Radwanska had starred in a commercial for the group where she spelled "Jesus" with tennis balls and urged viewers to not be ashamed of their faith.

"It's a shame that someone who has declared their love for Jesus is now promoting the mentality of men looking at women as a thing rather than a child of God worthy of respect and love," said Senior Catholic priest Father Marek Dziewiecki while speaking to members of the Polish media, according to Yahoo Sports.

"If she meets a man who she can truly love and establish a happy family and raise Catholic children, then she would probably have to hide these pictures from relatives," the priest added.

Q-Tip Talks Trayvon Martin at Wireless Festival UK


Hip-Hop took over the stage this year at Wireless; a three-day festival which took place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London from July 12-14 2013.

This year, the festival’s main headlining acts were Snoop Lion, Nas, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lemar, John Legend, Will.I.Am and many others.

Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake capped off the Festival on Sunday (14 July) by giving the audience a taste of Legends of Summer tour, which is due to kick-start in North America on July 17 in Toronto. The duo was also joined by Rihanna, who appeared as a surprise guest, for a rendition of the track Run This Town.
The other main headliners of the festival were the legendary group, A Tribe Called Quest.

During the group’s performance, Q-Tip made reference to the Trayvon Martin case by stating “This is not the first time it has happened where a young black man in our country, in America, life is devalued so grossly.”

Q-Tip praised the system in the UK by admiring the way information is analyzed before making a verdict. He asked the crowd to pray for America and said “There’s a lot of motherf***ing black on black violence going on in Chicago and Miami and all over our country man. We are losing our youth at an incredible rate. We need you to pray for us man.”

It was the first time in over 10 years, the group performed as a trio in the UK’s capital.


I still cannot get over the verdict.

Cory Monteith Cremated -- Father 'Devastated'

Cory Monteith's body was cremated Tuesday in Vancouver following a private viewing with his family and girlfriend Lea Michele, TMZ has learned -- but Cory's father wasn't invited ... and he's heartbroken.

Cory's dad Joe Monteith -- who is divorced from Cory's mom Ann -- tells TMZ ... he was informed of the cremation after the fact, adding he's "totally devastated" he didn't get a chance to see Cory's body.

We're told Cory's body was released yesterday to his mom, and she decided to hold a viewing at the hospital with Lea and Cory's brother Shaun. Following the viewing, we're told Cory's mom decided to have him cremated.

Cory's dad tells us, "I always loved both my sons and am going to miss Cory very very much. I'm saddened at the fact that I couldn't have been there to see my son before he was cremated."

As for Cory's alleged heroin use ... his dad says he's "shocked."

Catfish Recap: Apparently Happy Endings Do Exist on the Internet

Hot, normal girls do not have to resort to online relationships with men they’ve never met.

That’s what many people think. Breaking that big misconception was why, more than its happy ending, this week’s Catfish was a powerful experience. Internet love is not some ghetto for misshapen and/or damaged goods, but it feels like almost every week, there’s a catch with the catfishee in the form of some major baggage driving them to the delusion. This week, when Nev and Max got on the webcam with Lauren, it was clear even they were taken aback by her giant smile and outgoing personality. They commented, veiled or otherwise, on her utter sparkle no fewer than five times. There was an underlying tone there that Lauren was above the treatment she was receiving from her online beau of eight years, Derek.

And yeah, it kinda seemed like it had something to do with the fact that she appeared to have not a single thing wrong with her, unless you’re going to hold it against her that she has a young son (and some men certainly would). So shame on Nev and Max — but damn if Catfish’s first-ever happy ending didn’t steal the show. It probably didn’t help that MTV hammed it up with a live after-show, in which we learned precisely nothing except that the happy couples supposedly did not bang the first time they met IRL (props on the self-control, eight years during your teen years and early twenties is brutal).

There was no way this guy was about to be who he claimed to be, but sure enough, he stepped onto his front porch with the same dumb facial hair and the sort of dude-bro necklaces that are almost mandatory at DMB concerts, two staples from nearly all his online pics. At that exact moment, Twitter erupted with some all-caps variation on “wait what the actual fuck.” It was a nice reminder that not everyone on the Internet is a creep looking to deceive, and that sometimes, it all works out. The method of communication should never automatically invalidate the emotions.

Still, there were reasons for even online love’s most ardent apologists to be skeptical. Lauren, 21, and Derek, 23, had been in communication via social networking sites (Myspace then Facebook), chat, and phone for eight years. This time period included the birth of Lauren’s son, Mason, and her engagement to another man, which she broke off in part because of her feelings for Derek. During the engagement, Derek had unfriended Lauren, but the two started talking again once she left her fiancé. They never webcammed, though; he wouldn’t buy one, even after Lauren offered to pay for it.

'Star Trek 3' Shooting In 2014 With J.J. Abrams Directing? Set Phasers To Keep Dreaming

Actors love to talk out of turn and all too often their wishful thinking is pretty much the equivalent of fanboy daydreaming. Take comments from “Star Trek” actor Zachary Quinto that seem to have been taken at face value across the entire Internet. Quinto “supposes” that “Star Trek 3” will shoot next year. “'Star Trek 3' should be filming, I suppose, next year,” is the full quote. “It’s going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That’s the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet.” (If that’s not the most tentative, and half-hearted declaration of news this month, we’re not sure what is). Elsewhere in the article from Buzzhub, Quinto “mentioned that J.J. Abrams was planning to direct 'Star Trek 3.' "Collapse )

Social media may damage friendships, ruin concentration and cause anxiety — but for some Catholics, at least, it can also help save their souls.

The Vatican has turned heads with a recent decree that grants “indulgences” not only to attendees of the upcoming World Youth Day, but to Catholics who follow the event on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, as well. Indulgences are complicated business — the Church has an entire court overseeing them — but they essentially grant the receiver time-off purgatory, the period of purification before a soul moves into heaven. Considering St. Augustine described purgatory as a pain “more severe than anything a man can suffer in this life,” that’s a pretty good deal.

Bruce Springsteen dedicates song to Trayvon Martin

Many celebrities have been vocal about Saturday's acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, from passionate Twitter reactions to moments of silence at concerts.

Bruce Springsteen joined the ranks of those protesting the verdict on Tuesday, dedicating his song American Skin (41 Shots) to the slain teenager at a Limerick, Ireland, concert, according to The Star Ledger.

After seeing a sign in the crowd with the song title scrawled across it, the Boss asked "Where is that sign" and grabbed it.

"I want to send this one out as a letter back home," Springsteen said. "For justice for Trayvon Martin."

Paul Bhattacharjee missing: EastEnders actor's body found near cliffs on coast


The body of an actor who starred in EastEnders and Casino Royale has been found a week after he disappeared.

53-year-old Paul Bhattacharjee had last been seen leaving rehearsals at the Royal Court Theatre in London last Wednesday evening.

The actor - who also used the name Gautam Paul Bhattacharjee - later sent a text to his girlfriend but had not been heard from since.

The hunt for Mr Bhattercharjee spread across Twitter yesterday with Stephen Fry and Kim Cattrall among hundreds who expressed concern.

Sussex Police today told their Met Police counterparts that the body of a man matching Mr Bhattercharjee's description had been found near cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex, on Friday.

Mr Bhattacharjee, from Redbridge, north-east London, was formally identified today and his next of kin have been informed.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

The actor, who also appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, White Teeth and Dirty Pretty Things, had been due to appear in this week's play Talk Show at the Royal Court.

His role in the play, which began last night, was recast.

He played a doctor in Casino Royale in 2006 and was in several episodes of EastEnders as Inzamam between 2008 and 2010. Other television credits for the actor included Waking the Dead, Spooks and The Bill.

Last year he appeared as Benedick opposite Meera Syal in an Royal Shakespeare Company production of Much Ado about Nothing.

Matt Damon, Neill Blomkamp, Alice Braga, Wagner Moura, & Sharlto Copley talks ELYSIUM

ELYSIUM MATT DAMON INTERVIEW – Ever since Neill Blomkamp broke out with the sleeper hit District 9, he has been in hot demand, even for an A-lister like Matt Damon. The Elysium star tells why he was attached the movie, “I saw District 9 like everyone and I freaked out like everyone else, so he (Blomkamp) instantly jumped to the top of the list of people I wanted to work with. I didn’t even hope for it to happen as quickly as it did, it turned out to be his next movie,” says Damon. It didn’t take much for Blomkamp to convince Damon but he still brought an impressive movie treatment. “He pulled out the basically a graphic novel that he designed himself and he started to explain this world to me.”

Should Jay-Z And Lady Gaga Fans Be Wary Of Downloading Album Apps?

Well it seems Jay-Z may have to add another problem to his other 99 after his controversial app in association with Samsung, which saw the rapper give away a million copies of his number one album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail,' has come under fire from privacy pressure groups after fans complained of concerns over the data it gathers.

Just last week, Lady Gaga announced a similar proposal which would see her Little Monsters being given the opportunity to interact with their 'Mother Monster' via their mobile in conjunction with the release of her upcoming fourth studio album 'ARTPOP' this November.

However, last week the 1.2 million Jay-Z fans that installed the app were required to provide various pieces of personal information to be able to download the music and additional features including artwork and lyric sheets.

Fans firstly had to sign in to the app via either their Facebook or Twitter pages and enter their age before entering the applications features and users were reportedly forced to allow the app to post messages on social media sites under the identity of the user.

The app was reportedly to be able to access information regarding users location, dialled telephone numbers, networks and other phone apps prompting the pressure group Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) to request an investigation be carried forward by the Federal Trade Commission or FTC.

In a statement from EPIC the group have argued: “Samsung failed to disclose material information about the privacy practices of the App, collected data unnecessary to the functioning of the Magna Carta App, deprived users of meaningful choice regarding the collection of their data, interfered with device functionality, and failed to implement reasonable data minimisation procedures.”

While Samsung have since responded insisting all information required for the app was “purely for customer verification purposes, app functionality purposes, and for marketing communications, but only if the customer requests to receive those marketing communications".

The company strictly denied any foul play was involved with the 'Magna Carta' app.

How 9 TV Shows Handled the Death of a Star

The sudden passing of 31-year-old Glee star Cory Monteith left his fellow cast and crew members — not to mention the many fans of the actor and the show — shocked and numbed. Glee producers now have to face the difficult decision of postponing production of the show as they figure out a way to move forward in the aftermath of such a loss. Sadly, this was not the first time TV producers had to deal with the unexpected demise of a key cast member. Below, we list 9 tragedy-touched shows — and explain how they dealt with the loss…

The Adventures of Superman

Cast member and year of death: George Reeves, 1959

The popular TV series had to deal with unexpected death of John Hamilton, who played Daily Planet editor Perry White, in 1958 — an actor was hired to play White’s brother. But when Reeves died of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head (many still believe was staged), producers came up with the idea of putting the focus on Super-pal (and Planet cub reporter) Jimmy Olsen, played by Jack Larson.

How the show incorporated his real-life death: After hearing of their plans to splice in footage of Reeves and shoot a stand-in from behind, an incredulous Larson rejected their offers — the series ended, with an impressive 104 episodes, in April 1958.

Hugh Jackman on X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Wolverine

For a long time, one of Marvel Comics' most successful comic book series were the various "X-Men" titles, which in 2000 were turned by 20th Century Fox into an equally successful series of movies. One of the breakout stars from the series was one Hugh Jackman, who did such a good job bringing the Canadian berserker Wolverine to life, that the character was eventually spun off into two of his own movies, including the upcoming The Wolverine.

Last week, ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype sat down with Jackman to talk about the latest X-Movie, which made for an easy transition to talk about next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, which reunites Jackman with much of the cast of the original "X-Men" movies as well as original director Bryan Singer.

Rolling Stone’s Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cover gets parodied

The cover has elicited moral outrage from some, and mere yawns from others

The cover of the August issue of Rolling Stone, which features Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has predictably elicited some strong reactions: Tedeschi Food Shops in Boston and CVS, headquartered in New England, have banned the edition from their stores, the former saying that the cover serves “to glorify the evil actions” of Tsarnaev. Celebrities and musicians have publicly condemned the image, deeming it offensive and sensationalist.

Others, however, are barely batting an eye, noting that with infamy comes fame. Writes Salon’s Mary Elizabeth Williams:

Tsarnaev doesn’t have a hit song or a hot TV show, but Rolling Stone also covers news and politics, and Tsarnaev is newsworthy. Just like when, over forty years ago, Rolling Stone put Charles Manson on its cover, looking every bit the longhaired rock god — because that’s what Manson looked like. With news comes notoriety, and a photograph is not automatically glamorization. But the fury over Tsarnaev image shows that it’s not always so clear, and the unease that the fuzzy line between infamy and fame brings.

As with any buzzy magazine cover, the Internet has reacted with parodies.

Some criticize Rolling Stone’s editorial judgment:

Among the charges ... Alway was booked on suspicion of burglary, fraud, possession of narcotics, forged bills, and committing a felony while on bail.

Alway had been out on bail following her prior arrest just weeks before ... when she was popped for drug paraphernalia, petty theft, and fraud.

Kanye West 'ready for more children'

Kanye West is reportedly hoping to expand his brood with Kim Kardashian, despite her "horrific" pregnancy with North.

The rapper and his reality TV star girlfriend welcomed baby North, nicknamed Nori, into the world last month.

Kim struggled to cope with her weight gain during pregnancy and reportedly suffered a traumatic birth due to developing life-threatening condition pre-eclampsia.

The star apparently doesn't want to try for baby number two yet, despite her partner's wishes.

"At first, Kim thought Kanye was joking, as she's been through such a stressful time in the past few months and she's only just started to feel herself again. As soon as she realised he was serious, it sparked a spat," a source revealed to British magazine Star.

"Kim reminded Kanye she faced a horrific ordeal with Nori. She feels if he was any kind of supportive partner, he would realise how difficult that was for her, and he would wait until she's regained her confidence."

Hugh Jackman Fears Heart Attack from Terrible ‘Wolverine’ Diet

 photo hugh-jackman-diet-592x406_zps4ae08032.jpg

Actor Hugh Jackman knows that his 6,000 calorie a day diet for “Wolverine” isn’t doing his body any favors. In fact, he’s downright worried it will eventually cause him to have a heart attack.

In an interview with The Daily Mail Jackman says, “I have to eat a dozen eggs every day.” On days when he changes things up, he eats chicken. He then admits, “I worry I’ll have a heart attack.”

The star, who recently said he’s going to go vegan after all this is done to make up for all the suffering he’s caused to animals through his diet, might also want to consider veganism for his own health. Like Bill Clinton, who actually did have heart problems after years of too many burgers, Jackman could significantly improve his health by ditching meat and dairy.

A 2012 study actually showed that eating eggs can be almost as devastating to the body as smoking. In fact, the study found that ”people who eat egg yolks regularly have about 2/3 as much plaque buildup as smokers.” And Jackman is eating the whole dozen!

While we love the ‘Wolverine’ franchise, maybe it’s time for Jackman to hang up his adamantium claws and opt for more roles like Jean Valjean. For himself and for animals.


Cory Monteith's Death: 'Glee' Will Go On

Glee" is going full steam ahead without Cory Monteith -- and TMZ has learned, the show's writers have called an emergency meeting today to figure out how to work him out of the story.

Sources close to production tell us, “Glee is definitely not canceled. If you look at the dollars and cents of the show and that it was very much an ensemble with new kids being added last year when some graduated. It’s clear that the show wasn’t about one character."

Our source says producers are taking their cue from shows like "8 Simple Rules" and "The West Wing," which have also suffered real-life deaths ... the lesson being: one character doesn't make or break a show.

Our source adds, "The producers and writers are taking time to meet and figure out how to best address this situation in the context of Glee. No decision has been reached about a script yet, as it’s still early."

course it wouldn't be cancelled. i do wonder how they'll approach this though. hope they do him justice, and use the platform to either raise awareness (in a sensitive way) or at least end his character in a positive light. i wouldn't be surprised if they exploited it to the max though.

Mariah is a PETA queen and would never harm a lamb!

Mariah Carey is back in PETA’s favor after assuring the animal activists the sling she wore to support her injured shoulder during a concert last weekend was made from faux fur.

The diva fell awkwardly gracefully while shooting her latest music video and was hospitalized last week with a cracked rib and dislocated shoulder, but she refused to let her injuries halt a planned Superstorm Sandy relief benefit show in New York City on Saturday – and she took to the stage wearing an assortment of slings.

One of them prompted activists from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to make a call to Carey’s people – because it appeared to be made from fur.

But the animal rights organization’s Shakira Croce tells WENN, “With all the unsubstantiated reports flying around about Mariah Carey being spotted wearing a Gucci fur sling for her dislocated shoulder, don’t believe it. Her publicist has confirmed to PETA that the sling is faux fur and told PETA that Mariah had fashionable FAUX fur slings made to go along with her ensembles.

“PETA salutes Mariah, who has always been staunchly anti-fur and even donated a pair of fur coats to us in 2006 after a Russian tycoon sent them to her as a gift.”

While there has been no comment from the Palace, the fashionable royal's stance, with her hands resting protectively by her rounded tummy, suggested that there might be a little one on the way.

First Look at Bob Stookey on The Walking Dead (aka 'The Wire' fans rejoice)


There he is! Your first look at 'The Walking Dead's newest character, Bob Stookey. Stookey is played by Larry Gillard, Jr., who rose to television fame and prominence during the first season of the critically-acclaimed hit 'The Wire.' The photo above is a part of Entertainment Weekly's latest cover story on the fourth season of 'The Walking Dead,' of which Gillard's character will play a significant part.

Stookey is described as a former army medic who comes to assist Rick's troup of survivors. The name Bob Stookey is familiar to fans of 'The Walking Dead' comic book series, or fans of the prequel novels, however the Stookey in the AMC series has undergone some important back-story changes. In the comic series, Stookey hailed from Woodbury and worked for The Governor. This time around, Stookey isn't a Woodbury man and he is found by Darryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus) roughly a week prior to the events of season four's first episode.

"His backstory is not entirely the same as in the comic and the novel," explained Scott M. Gimple, the latest in a revolving door of showrunners who have helmed the hit AMC show. "I think he’s seen things go bad over and over, and winding up in this stable place doesn’t shake him from his experience. He struggles with that."
Robert Kirkman chimed in at Comic-Con and noted that, under Gimple, 'The Walking Dead' is going to be very character-driven rather than plot heavy, as the end of season three became. Gimple's comments regarding Stookey certainly speak to this interest in the character and his motivations:
"You can see there’s something deeper and darker that’s going on with this character, just from the first episode,” says Gilliard. “We don’t really know what it is. We just know he’s got some issues that he’s dealing with."


On Friday at Comic-Con there will be an entire panel dedicated to the upcoming season of 'The Walking Dead'

Jake Gyllenhaal Exits Disney's 'Into the Woods' as 'Nightcrawler' Gets Greenlight

Jake Gyllenhaal's indie movie "Nightcrawler" has just been greenlit, forcing the Oscar-nominated actor to drop out of Disney's Cinderella musical "Into the Woods" as a result of the scheduling conflict, TheWrap has learned.

Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Gyllenhaal had been in negotiations to play Rapunzel's Prince opposite Mackenzie Mauzy in Rob Marshall's highly-anticipated musical.

"Nightcrawler," which marks the directorial debut of "The Bourne Legacy" co-writer Dan Gilroy, is being produced by Gyllenhaal, Tony Gilroy and Jennifer Fox, as well as Michel Litvak and David Lancaster of Bold Films, which is financing.

The edgy thriller is gearing up for a five-week shoot in early October and while Gyllenhaal wanted to make the dates work with "Into the Woods," it proved impossible, as Marshall's star-studded cast necessitates a complicated shooting schedule that would've required Gyllenhaal to be on set for several days in October and November.

Dan Gilroy wrote "Nightcrawler," which finds Gyllenhaal playing a small-time Los Angeles criminal who gets a little too swept up in the nocturnal world of the city's crime journalism community.

CAA packaged "Nightcrawler" and is co-repping North American distribution rights with WME. Sierra/Affinity is handling foreign sales.

Gyllenhaal, who next stars alongside Hugh Jackman in the kidnapping thriller "Prisoners," is also in early talks to star in "Everest" alongside Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and John Hawkes. He's repped by WME and attorney Alan Hergott.
