Ashlee Simpson & True Blood's Stephen Moyer dazzle in Brooke Shields-directed Chicago



The Hollywood Bowl was transformed into the world of Chicago on Friday night for night 1 of the musical’s 3-night run. The production is directed by Brooke Shields and features an all-star cast including Samantha Barks, Stephen Moyer, Ashlee Simpson, Drew Carey and Lucy Lawless. The cast and crew had just 10 days to prepare for the three night performance and from watching in the audience, you wouldn’t be able to tell. The show was amazing!

Samantha and Ashlee were the standouts with Sam commanding the role of Velma Kelly while Ashlee reprised her role as Roxie Hart. Stephen and Lucy were nice surprises for us as we didn’t know they could sing and dance. And, as always, Drew Carey provided some nice comic relief and brought heart to the role of Amos.

If you didn’t know, Ashlee has played the role of Roxie Hart multiple times in the past, including in the Broadway and London productions!

Keanu loves kungfu, filmed a movie because of Chen Hu



(Translated from Chinese by anivad)

It has been many years since Keanu Reeves last starred in a big movie, and this time he appears in front of a Chinese audience, albeit in a different role - director. Recently, his directorial debut Man of Tai Chi was released, piquing the curiosity of the masses; however, the box-office takings were less than ideal, with the film grossing only $5 million on its opening day. Some speculate that one reason for the box-office failure is that Keanu's scenes in the movie are too few. He cedes the stage to new talent, giving the spotlight to his good friend Chen Hu.

Variety Reviews Final Version of ‘The Canyons’



Lindsay Lohan brings a raw conviction to Paul Schrader's ultra-low-budget but handsomely made study of hungry young things clawing at the good life. - Scott Foundas, Chief Film Critic @foundasonfilm

The signature psychosexual perversity of director Paul Schrader finds its nearly perfect match in novelist Bret Easton Ellis, whose screenplay for Schrader’s “The Canyons” might just as soon have been called “Psycho American Gigolo” or “The Hardcore Rules of Attraction.” The first in the new wave of Kickstarter-funded features instigated by established old-media types, Schrader’s ultra-low-budget (reportedly $250,000) but handsomely made study of low-level Hollywood hangers-on has earned much prerelease attention for the casting of real-life porn star James Deen and the troubled Lindsay Lohan (also one of the pic’s co-producers). But the end result is hardly a joke, not least for Lohan’s fascinating presence, far closer to self-revelation than self-parody. Between VOD curiosity seekers and adventurous arthouse-goers, “The Canyons” is sure to see solid returns on its modest investment, while pushing Schrader back into the zeitgeist after a long fallow period.

The latest but surely not the last 2013 release devoted to the amoral (s)exploits of hungry young things clawing at the good life (e.g. “The Bling Ring,” “Pain & Gain,” “Spring Breakers”), “The Canyons” is also the most overt in its evocation of such caustic industry cautionary tales as “The Day of the Locust” and “The Bad and the Beautiful.” To wit, Schrader makes a recurring motif out of boarded-up old movie theaters (seen as a montage under the opening credits and as chapter headings throughout), suggesting that Tinseltown ain’t what it used to be and, yes, the pictures — like “The Canyons” itself — really have gotten smaller. There is something of David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” and “Inland Empire,” too, in the pic’s sense of a place where everyone is always playing some alternate version of him- or herself, whether onscreen or off.

Iggy Azalea is going on tour with... Beyoncé!



After selling out 10 arena shows, Beyonce has added extra shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth and announced that Australian-born MC Iggy Azalea will be the support act at all 14 shows.

Beyonce returned to the live circuit following her performance at the SuperBowl XLVII Halftime Show in New Orleans, in which she reunited with her Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for the first time since 2007. “There was pyrotechnics, 150 back-up dancers and epic hair-flicks aplenty throughout the highly anticipated performance,” we wrote, “but it was the arrival of B’s ex-bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams that had the 75,000 strong crowd (and estimated 100 million at-home viewers) jumping out their seats.”

Justin Bieber Attends Selena Gomez's Birthday Party, Brings Singer Single Red Rose



It's so hard to say goodbye. Selena Gomez held yet another birthday celebration to ring in her big 2-1 with family and friends at Revolve Clothing beach house in Malibu on Saturday, July 27, with one famous (and unannounced) face making a late appearance: on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber.

The "Heartbreaker" singer, 19, arrived at the gypsy-themed house party around 9 p.m., an eyewitness tells Us, dressed down in a black-and-green letterman jacket, dark jeans and white high-tops, with a small present for the birthday girl.

"Justin flew in specifically for the party on a day off from his tour," the source tells Us. "He wasn't dressed in costume, but carried a single red rose in his hand."

Other celebrity guests included Julianne Hough, Nina Dobrev, Derek Hough, Ashley Benson and Jaden Smith, among others. Best friend Taylor Swift was performing at a show and unable to attend.

Muse's Matt Bellamy says they've had to offer bribes to use special effects at live shows

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has claimed that the band have had to offer bribes in order to stage their extravagant live shows.



According to the Sun, Bellamy said that representatives for the band had had to offer backhanders to people at various gigs so they could use their pyrotechnics and explosive effects. " Everywhere you go there are problems ," he said. "We have accountants and lawyers arguing with all sorts of local councils and police and promoters."

He added: "In Rome, we had to bribe people with thousands of euros just to be allowed to blast our fire effects. We had to phone the British Embassy in Rome and argue with some official. If you want to do things like this on the move, it's quite a big deal. It's pretty bloody expensive, though. It's mind-boggling how much, actually."

We're Diggin' On Them: 2013 Fashion Trends TLC Predicted In The 1990s

The year was 1994 and the age of R&B boy and girl groups had reached monumental heights, but all it took was one red album cover, a couple of silk pajamas and come condom-clad outfits to make us lifelong fans of TLC.

TLC was Crazy Sexy Cool before we even knew what it was to be an appealing combination of the three. Aside from their lyrical jest, the ladies stood out for their psychedelic style that seemed to have been dropped in from somewhere in the future, and it was. It was from now.

While it was hard to grasp the concept of some of the high-shine leather fits and oversized pieces Left Eye, Chilli and T-Boz were rocking in the '90s, a few of their fits have seen an updated spin and re-circulation.

With the newly released trailer for their VH1 biopic, we've been feeling a bit nostalgic for the days of crop tops and hard abs, but a look back down memory lane proves the '90s are back in full force, TLC style.

Drake & The Weeknd Back in the Studio Collaborating



Drake and The Weeknd hadn't collaborated in a long time, and most people likely believed their musical partnership was over. But, it seems the two artists are back making music together, and the results can only be good.

The partnership between Drake and The Weeknd heavily influenced Drake's fantastic "Take Care" album, which hopefully means their new collaboration will be just as impressive.

Drake is set to drop his new album "Nothing Was The Same" on September 17, while The Weeknd plans to drop his on September 10. Hopefully the song will wind up on one of those projects. Check out pictures of the two working in the studio above.

Carrie Bradshaw: The First Female Anti-Hero

When people talk about the rise of great TV, they inevitably credit one show, “The Sopranos.” Even before James Gandolfini’s death, the HBO drama’s mystique was secure: novelistic and cinematic, David Chase’s auteurist masterpiece cracked open the gangster genre like a rib cage, releasing the latent ambition of television, and launching us all into a golden age.

Leah Remini about leaving Scientology: "No one is going to tell me how I need to think"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Leah Remini may have split from Scientology earlier this month, but she's suddenly on her own.

"We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we're about," the former King of Queens star, 43, told PEOPLE on Saturday at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu.

Remini, who tangled with the church, added, "I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to."

The actress – who was defended by the niece of David Miscavige, the most powerful man in Scientology – explained, "It doesn't matter, it could be anything. I thought about the family being broken up for some other cause, and I'm not about to shut up."

CBS Respond to Cote de Pablo's decision to leave NCIS, "'We Offered Her a Lot of Money"



CBS didn’t let NCIS leading lady Cote de Pablo go without a fight.

“I really want to clarify: We offered Cote de Pablo a lot of money — and then we offered her even more money,” CBS Corp. president and CEO Les Moonves shared Monday morning at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We really didn’t want to lose her, we love her. We think she’s terrific. We obviously were in discussions… and ultimately she decided she didn’t want to do the show. It was her decision. We don’t like losing anybody. We did everything humanly possible [and] exhausted every opportunity, and she just decided she didn’t want to do the show.”

News of de Pablo’s imminent exit from TV’s most watched drama came on July 10, barely a week before NCIS began production on its upcoming season and two months after Criminal Minds actresses Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook endured their own protracted contract talks, as they sought greater pay parity with their male costars.

At the time de Pablo tendered her decision, she issued a statement saying, “I’ve had eight great years with NCIS and Ziva David. I have huge respect and affection for Mark [Harmon], Gary [Glasberg], Michael [Weatherly], David [McCallum], Rocky [Carroll], Pauley [Perrette], Brian [Dietzen], Sean [Murray], all of the team and CBS. I look forward to finishing Ziva’s story.”

NCIS opens Season 11 on Tuesday, Sept. 24, where its new time slot rivals include ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The CW’s Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals.

Fiona Apple announces collaborative tour with Blake Mills



Just after releasing her wonderful "Hot Knife" video, Fiona Apple has another announcement to break her 2013 silence-- a collaborative tour with her Idler Wheel... touring member Blake Mills. Apple and Mills will tour North America in the fall playing material together from their individual songbooks, as Consequence of Sound reports, plus some new, unreleased material.

In an issued statement, Apple and Mills said that while tour dates have been finalized, the show itself “is still in development.” They did, however, agree to share a few words on the collaboration (emphasis on the word “few”).

1) We were sent an assignment to write three or four sentences.

2) These sentences should communicate that we, Fiona Apple & Blake Mills (that’s us), are doing a little tour as a duo.

3) We know it’ll be something special, and we aren’t being coy here — it’s just that we have about 26% of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you.

4) It was our understanding that the 4th sentence was optional, but here is something that is true: the uncertainty excites us.

Sherlock series 3: The Killing star Lars Mikkelsen revealed as new villain



The Danish actor will play a character called Charles Augustus Magnussen, a name that will be familiar to fans of the original Sherlock Holmes stories.

Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen has been unveiled as the major new villain set to test Benedict Cumberbatch's detective when Sherlock returns to BBC1 for series three.

Best known to UK audiences as mayoral candidate Troels Hartmann in Nordic Noir hit The Killing, Mikkelsen will play a character named Charles Augustus Magnussen – a name which will be eerily familiar to fans of the original Sherlock Holmes stories...

The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton focuses on the eponymous "king of all blackmailers", a ruthless character Holmes describes as more distasteful than any of the many murderers he has encountered during his career, who makes his living by extorting money from wealthy nobles using ill-gotten scandalous revelations about their personal lives.

Sherlock fans may be interested to know that the original story not only involves the detective taking on the guise of a plumber in order to gain information about Milverton but also sees him betrothed to the villain's housemaid – although whether that has any connection to the wedding set to take place in episode two of the upcoming third series remains to be seen.

Lars Mikkelsen is the brother of fellow actor Mads Mikkelsen who has a criminal background himself as the star of serial killer drama Hannibal. As the new Sherlock villain, he will have his work cut out trying to live up to Andrew Scott's Bafta-winnng peformance as the detective's original nemesis Moriarty.

Sherlock producer Sue Vertue announced the news of Mikkelsen's role on Twitter today, accompanied by the first shot of his character, as seen above.

Tyra's craziest moments of The Tyra Show



Oh Tyra. Ms. Banks is one cuckoo lady, y'all, and I am so thankful that someone was clever enough to give her her own talk show for five seasons. Of course, we can still catch all the crazy when America's Next Top Model returns August 2 -- and I expect to see even more weirdly sexual remarks and desperate grabs for attention this cycle, considering that male models are competing as well.

Unfortunately, ANTM has to focus at least part of each episode on the, you know, models. This sad fact means that Tyra has just a few brief minutes each week to unleash her apparently unbalanced mental state on her viewing audience. The Tyra Banks Show, on the other hand, gave her a whole hour five days a week to perform "social experiments," talk to dwarves, creepily flirt with younger men, fall out of chairs, and fight for the cause she most believes in: teaching society not to discriminate against supermodels and other ridiculously beautiful people.

In honor of the return of Top Model -- which has been absent from our screens for a full year, instead of the typical four months -- let's recount Tyra's best talk show moments. I like to think of these eight clips as some of America's best moments as well.

Adam Levine, Behati Prinsloo Step Out Together After Engagement



Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine were photographed together for the first time since their engagement on Sunday, July 28. The supermodel was visiting the Maroon 5 frontman on the set of his first movie, Can a Song Save Your Life?, costarring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo.

Looking scruffier than usual, Levine layered two shirts and wore a black vest, tweed pants and biker boots in New York City. His bride-to-be bared her abs in a loose-fitting camisole top, which she paired with skinny jeans, a floral hacker and a floppy hat. She, of course, was wearing her diamond ring.

Levine popped the question with a vintage sparkler over the July 13 weekend in L.A. "It was a surprise," Prinsloo, 24, gushed to Us Weekly at the July 18 launch party for the new Victoria's Secret fragrance in New York City. "It hasn't even sunk in yet! Last night, I forgot I slept with my ring on. I woke up and went, 'Oh, hello!'"

The Voice mentor's pals are just as stunned about the quickie proposal, given that he split with Prinsloo in March and had been dating Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal, as recently as June. "His friends are dumbfounded," a Levine insider says in the August 5 issue of Us Weekly (on stands now). "Everyone thought he and Behati were done!" But according to a Prinsloo pal, the recently reunited couple "never stopped talking."

Levine, 34, told Agdal, 21, about his engagement to Prinsloo via text message. "Adam just went M.I.A. on Nina and stopped answering her calls," a source said.

For now, the betrothed stars are content to simply enjoy this phase of their relationship. "We haven't talked about any wedding plans," Prinsloo said of Levine. "We're just so excited in the moment."

Fugees Director Aswad Ayinde Given 90 Years for Fathering 6 Children with Own Daughters



Award-winning music video producer Aswad Ayinde has been sentenced to 90 years in prison after a New Jersey court found him guilty of raping and impregnating his daughters.

The shamed star, who won an MTV award for directing The Fugees' Killing Me Softly in 1996, admitted repeatedly raping five of his seven girls to create a 'pure' bloodline that would survive Doomsday.

Many of the assaults are said to have taken place from the mid-1980s to 2002 in an abandoned funeral home, before he and his wife separated.

Ayinde, 55, was able to conceal his plot by delivering the babies himself and beating and isolating his daughters by home schooling them, the court heard during his trial.

Enter a guy named Ross M. Klein, who doubled Toni's price and nabbed the tunes.


Among the 27 are a few hits, including "You're Making Me High," "How Many Ways," and "Always."

"Un-Break My Heart" is not among the 27, and we don't know its fate ... although it looks like it's still hers.

Should the studios team up for one big Marvel Universe?



Although Spider-Man and The Avengers live in very different worlds on-screen, it looks as though Mark Webb and Joss Whedon would love to bring them together…

It's a dream that most Marvel fans have had for a very long time - the notion of bringing together the three major studios to create one big, seamless Marvel Cinematic Universe. But for one reason or another, that's just never happened. Whether it's profit or just sheer bull-headedness, it looks as though Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and The Avengers are destined to remain apart… at least, for the time being. But directors Mark Webb and Joss Whedon reveal that they'd love that to change.

"I love it. I can't say it's one of my favorites on the album because they're all my favorites, but it's really cool and he killed it. I love his verse."

Grande and Sean have been pals for a while, but she was waiting for the perfect song to take their musical friendship to the next level.

"We wanted to have writing sessions and, like, jam together but we never found the time and we never found the right song," she said. "We were talking about a few other songs together but it just never worked out and it never was the right moment and then finally 'Right There' came along. And we were like 'Oh this is it'."

Olivia Wilde Covers 'Fashion' Magazine September 2013



Olivia Wilde looks gorgeous on the cover of Fashion magazine‘s September 2013 issue, on newsstands August 5.

Here is what the 29-year-old Rush actress had to share with the mag:

On her stylish, scandalous role in Rush: “It is based on a true story. I play Suzy Miller—who was James Hunt’s first wife. Suzy ended up leaving [James] for Richard Burton—who left Elizabeth Taylor for Suzy. My job in the film was to tell the story of James’s tumultuous marriage, which was very Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? messy… I got to wear archive Gucci head to toe through the movie!”

On learning a few tricks from fiancé Jason Sudeikis: “His skill level is so high. I really have learned a lot from him, especially when it comes to being bold and taking risks as an actor within a role. Comedians are so great about trying things, like doing seven takes in seven different ways and really not being afraid to stumble.”

On her past experience with love: “It’s really hard to jump into a relationship after you feel you’ve been through a difficult time…I liken it to a burn victim jumping back into a Jacuzzi. It took a lot of coaxing.”

Angelina Jolie Tops Forbes List of Highest-Paid Actresses

It's been three years since Angelina Jolie's last big movie, The Tourist, with Johnny Depp. It underperformed for a film with that kind of star power, bringing in $278 million on a $100 million budget.

In the interim, Jolie wrote and directed her first film, the Bosnian War movie In the Land of Blood and Honey, and privately dealt with a major health issue. After finding out that she was a carrier of the BRCA1 gene, Jolie opted to have a double mastectomy.

Jolie probably could have kept her decision a secret. Somehow, the celebrity press never caught on to why the star was suddenly out of the public eye.

Instead, she wrote an op-ed in the New York Times about why she decided to have the mastectomy. The piece was honest, controversial and very brave.

Hollywood hasn't shied away from Jolie. She's still one of the few actresses who can demand a paycheck north of $15 million for the right movie - like Disney's retelling of the old Sleeping Beauty story, Maleficent. The film, which hits theaters next summer, marks Jolie's return to blockbusters and big money. Jolie tops our list of Hollywood's Top-Earning Actresses with an estimated $33 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.

TLC Bring Out Lil Mama for 'No Scrubs' at Mixtape Festival



A reunited TLC closed out their set at the Mixtape Festival last night with their 1999 hit, "No Scrubs." To fill in for the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins brought out Lil Mama, who plays Left Eye in the forthcoming VH1 biopic on the group.

Katy Perry's #PRISM Is Coming

Katy Perry's Next Album Title and Release Date Announced!



Is the world ready for this? The multi-platinum selling artist, the “Teenage Dream” star, the one and only Katy Perry is ready to impact the world with her highly-awaited third major studio album (and fourth overall) entitled “Prism” that’s scheduled for release on digital retailers on October 22 via EMI Music and Capitol Records. A truck with the information has appeared this afternoon (July 29) in Los Angeles, the man who tweeted the photo named Tarek Chamma is a known friend of Perry. A few minutes later her friend and singer Adam Lambert shared the same photo on Twitter. Her personal stylist Johnny Wujek also confirmed the news on Twitter. It looks like the promotion is about to begin. According to some sources close to the artist, the first single is rumored to be called ”Rainbow” and will be released in mid-August. (Remember producer Dr. Luke confirmed via Twitter that the single begins with the letter “R”).

The singer has been reunited with Canadian multiple Grammy nominated producer Greg Wells and American musician, songwriter and actress Bonnie McKee to record some tracks for the album. Wells was responsible for the production on the tracks: “Not like the Movies” and “Pearl” (included on “Teenage Dream”) plus “Waking Up in Vegas“, “Ur So Gay“, “Mannequin” and “Fingerprints” (included on “One of the Boys“). Meanwhile, McKee is responsible for writing the biggest hits of the artist to date including “California Girls“, “Teenage Dream” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)“, all part of her second album.

On April 18, 2013 during American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP) expo the singer explain some details of upcoming record. She confirmed new track co-written with Sia entitled “Double Rainbow” (maybe it’s the lead single and is finally called just “Rainbow“). Perry said: “My lyrics always come from a personal place, but I also want them to be relatable. It’s like a black box where I keep my secrets“.

Avicii Teams Up With Adam Lambert & Nile Rodgers: Listen To “ID (Lay Me Down)”


Of-the-moment DJ Avicii has been teaming up with a litany of diverse stars on his forthcoming debut album #TRUE (hashtag true!) — and the latest collaboration features glam-pop singer Adam Lambert and iconic musician (and “Get Lucky” cameo-maker) Nile Rodgers. Avicii described the song, titled ”ID (Lay Me Down),” to Digital Spy as having a “very disco” sound. He went on: “It’s kind of all over the place. It’s a fusion, but when you listen to the whole album it makes sense. It sounds like it’s going to be weird, but the final product is what I got so excited about.”

He’s been testing the song at various music festivals over the past few weeks — and despite the low quality of the performance audio, “ID (Lay Me Down)” sounds like a potential hit with Lambert’s strong vocals and the feel-good production. The collaboration, alongside a song with Imagine Dragons, will be on #TRUE, out September 17.

Homeland Season 3 Teaser



he newest (nearly visual-free) teaser for the third season premiere of Showtime’s Homeland makes it seem as though Nicholas Brody has managed to stay hidden since we last saw him heading north.

But just how well he’s doing? That remains classified.

As Showtime previously revealed, the Emmy winning drama’s third season picks up “during the aftermath of the horrific terror attack that decimated the U.S. intelligence apparatus, and prompted a global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist — Nick Brody. As Carrie and Saul begin to pick up the pieces of their shattered professional and personal lives, they are swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for Brody’s whereabouts.”

Press PLAY on the video to hear a bunch of audio clues to the drama’s upcoming third season. Take a listen — we’re intrigued by the phrases “Does Carrie know I’m here?,” “I just need to get my strength back” and the weary, echoing “Survive” at the end of the clip.

Starz renews 'Black Sails' months before its January 2014 premiere

The first season of "Black Sails" won't hit TV until 2014, but Starz is already moving forward on a second season.



Starz announced on Friday (July 26) that "Black Sails" will resume production in November 2013, meaning that the network will be well into shooting on the second season before a scene of the Michael Bay-produced swashbuckler has aired.

This is, of course, part of the Starz MO. "Boss" and "Magic City" were among the network's dramas to get renewed pre-premiere.

"Michael Bay, Jon Steinberg and their teams delivered a spectacular first season of 'Black Sails,' and we are incredibly proud of everyone's work," blurbs Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. "Based on the strong fan response to the preview screening at last week's Comic-Con, we felt an early order for a second season would allow the writers, cast and crew enough time and space to continue crafting such unique and epic storytelling."

Starz is feeling sufficiently confident in "Black Sails" that not only has the network ordered a second season, but the second season will be 10 episodes compared to eight for the first season.

hey everyone, it's another OITNB post


Rich Juz sat down with his friend Laverne Cox and they had a little chat.

RJ: We've talked about you being sensitive about the way you are represented. Do you think being trans fuels that sensitivity?

LC: I think any actress should be. I don't know if it's about me being trans, but maybe. Everyone is insecure. I think really it comes from like a desire to want to be in control of how you're represented.

What are you insecure about now?

I'm insecure about how I look...

In terms of presentation?

Everything. I was looking at some stills from the show that are up online. [In the past] I was like, "When I am successful, I'm going to look differently. I will have had more surgery, I will be thinner. And that will equal me being successful." And then I was looking at myself with all the imperfections that I see, and still people are relating to this character, people are connecting to her. On social media people love Sophia. So I'm on this show that is kind of a hit now and I don't look like Beyoncé. I haven't had the extreme makeover to look like that, so maybe I can just be authentically myself. Maybe that's enough.

The 21-year-old actor chatted with the mag about his new show Twisted, what he’s learned as an actor, and his interest in rap music. Check it:

On being cast in the ABC Family show Twisted: “Getting involved with Twisted was a very creative process all-around. I went in a couple of times and had a lot of conversations with the directors and producers of the pilot. It was quite a long process. They really cared about finding the right guy and wanted to do it right. I had a lot of fun bringing in my own version of Danny and making sure we were all on the same page regarding the character.

On what he’s learned as an actor: “I’m learning now, more as an actor, that the genre doesn’t only change the way things are written, but also the style that it’s acted in. Victorious, for me, was kind of a leap in another direction. I had to learn a new set of skills. Speaking loudly so everyone could hear you and then nailing a joke. Sitcom jokes are like music. It’s very much like a pattern. I’ve done stage and one-hour dramas before, Twisted lets me get back to that.”

Cannes Diamond Heist Value Up to $136 Million
5945220-Hotel_Carlton_Intercontinental_Cannes
By DRAGANA JOVANOVIC
The value of the Cannes jewelry heist was more than doubled today to $136 million as fresh details of the daring robbery emerged. The brazen theft occurred about 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel before the exhibition opened to the public and as the jewelry was about to placed into secure display cases, Deputy Prosecutor Philippe Vique told ABC News.

At the time of the theft, the diamond encrusted jewelry was in two bags and those bags were both placed inside another bag. Vique declined to say where the bag was at the time of the robbery. The thief entered through a glass door off of Cannes' main street the Promenade de La Croisette, but the door was not smashed or broken and investigators are looking at surveillance cameras to determine how he was able to open the door, Vique said.The suspect, wearing a scarf and a hat, pulled a semi-automatic pistol, grabbed the bag of jewelry and "jumped" through another glass door that was opened and that led to the Rue Einesy, the prosecutor said. While escaping, some of the jewelry spilled on to the street.

Despite dropping some of the heist, Vique raised the estimated value of the loot - all newly fashioned diamond jewelry -- to $136 million. At the time the gunman came into the room, there was the exhibition's manager, two employees and three unarmed security guards, Vique said. Cannes Police Officer Maurice Alibert told ABC News that the suspect spoke "perfect French." "We think he is French," Alibert said.

Vique said it would be difficult to sell the hot jewelry because each item is "incredibly expensive."

It was the third such heist in the French Riviera resort in as many months. The exhibit of jewelry was by the prestigious Leviev diamond house, owned by the London-based Russian Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev. The exhibit had been due to run until the end of August.

The Carlton hotel dominates the exclusive Promenade de la Croisette that stretches a mile and a half along the French Riviera.

It was a movie set hotel for "To Catch a Thief," the 1955 Alfred Hitchcock romantic thriller starring Cary Grant as a former jewel thief and Grace Kelly as an American heiress on holiday in the Riviera with her mother.

The Carlton itself was already a scene of one of the biggest diamond robberies, in August 1994, when a group of thieves firing machineguns burst into the hotel's jewelry store and made off with some $60 million in diamonds.

Nimoy just teased what could be the release date of the next Trek pic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic



What good is an awesome secret unless you can tell someone?  Leonard Nimoy obviously couldn't restrain himself any longer and sent out this cryptic tweet last Friday, hinting at what might be the official release date for J.J. Abrams' next Star Trek sequel.  Or is it?   Here's Nimoy's nugget:

“@TheRealNimoy: How many days till Sept. 8, 2016 ? LLAP”

It's well known across the galaxy that Sept. 8, 2016, is the 50th anniversary of the original airing of the Star Trek television series and that studio brass hoped to get the next sequel out in time to mark that memorable occasion.
So did Spock Prime spill the beans here and tell the world when we'd see the Enterprise crew in action again, or does this date have some other significance?  September seems light-years away from the gilded summer release season where maximum profits are mined.
What do you think Nimoy knows?

Lindsay Lohan: My Toxic Ex-Friends Are DEAD TO ME

Lindsay Lohan has made a list ... she's checked it twice ... and she's decided ... the majority of her so-called "friends" will be CUT from her life when she's sprung from rehab.

Sources close to the actress tell TMZ, Lindsay recently sat down at Cliffside -- where she's currently enrolled in a substance abuse treatment program -- and made a list of 100 friends ... who knew?

We’re told Lilo was inspired by a therapy session about "toxic friends and influences." Lindsay actually made 2 lists -- one with the friends she'll keep, and the other with the ones she'll ax.

According to sources, 80 people were on the "cut" list.

Lindsay showed it to her closest friends -- who mostly agreed with her choices.

Katy Perry: I told Kristen Stewart I wasn't with Robert Pattinson





The Wide Awake singer came clean on the awkward fame triangle in a candid interview, admitting she’s been licking her own wounds after her on-off lover John Mayer dumped her earlier this year.

On her showdown with K-Stew, Perry revealed: ‘I sent her a text message saying: “I know you’ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person. I’m just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits.”’

After assuring her 23-year-old rival that she and the 27-year-old hunk just have a platonic chemistry, the divorcee tended to her own love woes after 35-year-old Mayer gave her the boot in February.

‘He pulled away. That was a big hello for me,’ said the 28-year-old, as she smouldered on the cover of Elle magazine.

‘I realised I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have,’ Perry explained.

‘You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another.  In relationships, it was hard for me to speak up and set boundaries.  I think a lot of that was to do with the fear of loss.’

After being burnt during her 14-month marriage to Russell Brand, Perry said she’s done with conventional romance after reconnecting with Mayer.

She added: ‘The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they’re also wildly intelligent and poetic. . . I’m not interested in taming anyone – I’m pretty wild myself.’

The pilot will be directed by Carl Seaton (One Week), and, according to the description, will delve into “the soapalicous swirl but oh- so real, gritty reality of the soap opera biz; The world is filled with Executives, and Actors all doing WHATEVER it takes to keep the show on air, maintaining the excessive lifestyle THEY ALL have grown accustom to.

But reading the project's Kickstarter page, it’s pretty clear that Rowell understands how to use it to raise funds for a project. Unlike Spike Lee’s recent Kickstarter campaign, where it’s basically Give me money because I’m Spike,Rowell pitches the whole concept of the project, explains how the money will be used, and the production strategy behind the project.

We shall see if she’s successful.

Below is her video pitch.

Lorraine Toussaint Joins ONTD's New Favourite Show - 'OITNB', Danielle Brooks (Taystee) Promoted



I have yet to watch a single episode of Netflix's new original series Orange Is the New Black, which debuted on July 11. However, just about every single person I know who's binge-watched the series, loves it!

Needless to say, I'll have to check it out eventually.

In the meantime, you should know that, not only has the series been renewed for a 2nd season, it's beefing up its cast, adding veteran actress Lorraine Toussaint, who will play a character named Vee, described as a street-tough inmate who used to run a drug business, using kids are runners.

Also announced today, Danielle Brooks, who plays a recurring role in season 1, has been promoted to a series regular.

Created by Jenji Kohan (Weeds), the dramedy stars Taylor Schilling and is set in a women's prison. As Netflix did with its previous original series, all thirteen one-hour episodes in the series were made available at launch.

Its key cast includes a number of actresses of African descent, including Danielle Brooks, Samira Wiley, Vicky Jeudy, Lolita Foster, Michelle Hurst, Uzo Aduba, Adrienne C. Moore, Laverne Cox, Dascha Polanco, and now Lorraine Toussaint.

Wendy's Customers Defend Server Against Bully, Get Frosties and Food



Bullying may conjure up images of school kids ganging up on each other on the playground, but adults are guilty of partaking in the nasty practice too – on the Web, in the workplace, and even at restaurants. Luckily, some bystanders aren't looking the other way anymore.

When two New Jersey teens overheard a cashier getting an unfair earful from a customer, they spoke up. And it not only felt good, but tasted good, too.

On Sunday, Kailee Whiting, 19, shared her story on Reddit, writing: "Stood up for an innocent employee at Wendy's who was being bullied by a customer. She gave us free frosties and chicken nuggets." Whiting also posted a photo of the two shakes sitting atop a piece of paper that read, "You guys are AWESOME. (Hope you like vanilla.)"

With 'Southland' Canceled, Regina King Heads Back To 'Big Bang Theory'



With Southland now canceled, Regina King has signed up to return to CBS's comedy hit, The Big Bang Theory, playing the director of employee relations at the university where star Jim Parsons' character works.

King's character was last seen fending off numerous romantic advances of the man at the office, who all seek job stability.

The Big Bang Theory returns for a 7th season with back-to-back episodes on September 26, at 8pm, on CBS.

King booked a co-starring on ABC‘s comedy pilot titled Divorce: A Love Story, which is based on an Israeli series; but it wasn't picked up to series, unfortunately.

She's making her feature directorial debut with an adaptation of ReShonda Tate Billingsby's novel Let The Church Say Amen, for BET.

There was also a Shirley Chisolm biopic which King was once said to be attached to star in. No confirmation on that however. Viola Davis was also once-rumored to be interested.

The Milwaukee Brewers are effectively returning the rest of Ryan Braun’s 2013 salary to their fans



With their star suspended for the rest of the 2013 season and the team languishing in last place, the Milwaukee Brewers went looking for a way to say 'We're sorry' to their fans.

What they found was undoubtedly the best way to apologize: Free food and drinks.

To be more specific, each fan who spins the Miller Park turnstiles during the month of August will receive a $10 voucher that can be used at the stadium's concession stands. With 12 home dates in August and an average expected attendance of 30,000, that's a roughly $3.6 million hit the Brewers are taking with this "Fans First" promotion— or more than the $3.1 million they would have had to pay Ryan Braun had he not been suspended for 65 games after getting caught up in the Biogenesis scandal.

Time Warner Cable drops CBS in NY, LA, Dallas. Will drop Showtime nationwide.


Cable company drops CBS stations in New York, L.A., Dallas as well as Showtime and three other cable nets nationwide after midnight Monday

Time Warner Cable said it drop local CBS stations in New York, L.A. and Dallas and will remove Showtime and three other CBS cable channels from lineups nationwide shortly after midnight Eastern time Monday, after the two sides failed to reach a distribution pact despite weeks at the bargaining table.

“The outrageous demands for fees by CBS Corporation have forced Time Warner Cable to remove several of its networks and broadcast stations from our customers’ lineups,” Time Warner Cable said in a statement. “We offered to pay reasonable increases, but CBS’s demands are out of line and unfair — and they want Time Warner Cable to pay more than others pay for the same programming.”

CBS did not immediately provide a statement.

UPDATE:
Time Warner Cable — after announcing it was removing local CBS stations in New York, L.A. and Dallas as well as Showtime and three other CBS cablers from lineups nationwide over a fee dispute — said it was holding off on going dark on the channels at CBS’s request.

Beyoncé's rep talks about her upcoming album!



The status of Beyoncé's new album has been the subject of scrutiny for much of 2013, thanks in no small part to her endless string of high-profile performances, TV specials and endorsement deals.

But in recent months, that scrutiny has gone to another level entirely.

Based on interviews given by collaborators Ne-Yo and Diplo — both of whom made it seem as if Beyoncé was still attempting to figure out a direction for the disc — and reports that she'd scrapped 50 songs intended for the album and was beginning from scratch, the project definitely seems to be in flux, and some have begun to wonder whether the follow-up to 4 would see the light this year.

'Pacific Rim' sequel could hinge on China



After defying its box office naysayers but failing to become an outright hit, Pacific Rim is making its way to China, where its reputation as a flop or a success could be cemented. According to The Wrap, the massive Chinese moviegoing market could tip the scales in favor or success and a potential sequel. If the Guillermo del Toro-directed epic can make just $50 million in China, BoxOffice.com editor-in-chief Phil Contrino believes Warner Bros. will open the door for del Toro to do a Pacific Rim 2.

The Crazy Ones' at CBS' Summer TCA Tour



Sarah Michelle Gellar keeps it bright while attending CBS’ 2013 Summer Television Critics Association tour to promote her upcoming show The Crazy Ones at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (July 29) in Beverly Hills, Calif.


The 36-year-old actress was joined by her co-stars Robin Williams, James Wolk, and Amanda Setton.


PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Sarah Michelle Gellar


“To me, if you think of the top 10 comics of all time, Robin‘s on that list. One thing about ‘Buffy’ that was so wonderful … it was funny, it was dramatic, it was scary … Ultimately, [comedy] is really what I wanted to do,” SMG shared (via Huffington Post) at the panel.



I'll watch this show just for James Wolk tbh.
