Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers Anime Made by Toei

Toei Animation is producing Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, Marvel's first television anime series for Japanese boys, for Walt Disney Japan to air throughout Japan next spring. Bandai is responsible for turning the characters into merchandising. The series is aimed at male boys ages 6-12.

In the anime, portable capturing devices known as "Disks" were developed to capture evil villains. However, thanks to Loki's machinations, both villains and heroes are sealed up in these Disks and scattered around the world. Amid the chaos, five youths obtained the power to restore these Disks-sealed heroes through a program called "Biocode." These youths received five Disks that Spider-Man, who narrowly escaped being sealed himself, retrieved. Thus, these five can restore Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Wasp — the Avengers!

Walt Disney Japan has developed local anime content for the Japanese market in the past — notably the Fireball television anime and the Stitch! television anime in 2008. The two television anime have inspired prequels and sequels.

Marvel also collaborated with the anime studio MADHOUSE to create four television anime — Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, and Blade — before its acquisition by Disney. There has since been an Iron Man: Rise of Technovore video project. Toei also collaborated with Marvel on the 1978-79 live-action special-effects (tokusatsu) version of Spider-Man. Kodansha published Ryoichi Ikegami's manga re-imagining of Spider-Man in Monthly Shonen Magazine, while Marvel itself created the Mangaverse comic project.

Lawd hammercy he's hot in this movie, blood and all

If writer, producer and director Sam Raimi’s future schedule seems to be looking a big sparse at the moment, it might have something to do with the fact that he’s currently working to fulfil the dreams of horror fans by working on the script for a sequel to his 1992 comedic fantasy-horror Army of Darkness, which could well be his next directing project.

Featuring a great blend of slapstick comedy, an army of deadites and some endlessly quotable one-liners, Army of Darkness was the third film starring Bruce Campbell as Ashley “Ash” J. Williams, and was also the last in the Evil Dead franchise up until this year, when Raimi produced a remake of the original movie in the series, The Evil Dead, which was directed by Fede Alvarez.

Tis the season to be scared, so we’ve rated some of the scariest Disney moments we could think of to add some chills to your day. Be warned: although these ratings are completely arbitrary and totally silly, these moments are legit. Grab a blanket in case you need to cover your face out of sheer terror. Put your glass of water down so you don’t spit out said water in a moment of fright. Okay, we think you’re sufficiently prepared. Let’s get started.

When Belle is Attacked by Wolves

This scene is seriously scream-worthy. It has all the classic scary symptoms: a dark forest, ominous music, Belle is alone, and these wolves are not interested in small talk. Scream Scale Rating: AHHHHH!

Director Nigel Dick Talks About The Genius That Is The Legendary Miss Britney Spears

It’s been 15 years since Britney Spears leaned against a locker, gazed into a camera, and mouthed those three words. In one music video, the not-that-innocent 16-year-old in pigtails shimmied in her schoolgirl uniform, fast-tracking puberty for a nation of adolescent boys and crystallizing an iconic pop-culture moment.

Since the star-making “…Baby One More Time” debuted, Spears’s career has traveled well-documented peaks and valleys, but her first music video remains one of the most influential three minutes and 57 seconds from the turn-of-the-millennium. It simultaneously crowned a pop princess and canonized a sex goddess. It was the cataclysmic collision of spitfire upstart performer, brilliant pop song, and cheeky music video. It was the explosion of the long-burning pop music fireball that is Britney Spears.

What was it like to create such a significant moment in pop culture? To find out, we called up the “…Baby One More Time” music video director himself, Nigel Dick, who not only helmed Spears’s ab-baring coming out, but three more of her most memorable videos: “Sometimes,” “(You Drive Me) Crazy,” and “Oops!…I Did it Again.”

In a candid, sprawling chat that would make any ‘90s kid giddy, we talked about whose idea it was to go for broke with that schoolgirl costume, the controversy that surrounded the video’s sexiness, what Spears was like as a not-yet-famous 16-year-old, and why what’s happened to her and her persona can be so frustrating.

Bruce Jenner was NOT invited to AT&T Park when Kanye West popped the question to Kim Kardashian ... in fact, he had no idea his step-daughter was getting engaged until AFTER the fact -- TMZ has learned.

Family sources tell us ... Bruce and Kanye have never had a "real conversation."  As we previously reported Bruce was not happy when Kim hooked up with Kanye so quickly after she left Kris Humphries.  

We're told Kanye is the one who planned every detail of the surprise proposal.  We do not know exactly why Bruce was not invited -- whether it was because of Kanye or because of Bruce's separation from Kris.

We do know ... Bruce didn't even know Kanye was popping the question until he got a call from Kim immediately after she got engaged.   We're told Bruce was Kim's first call, because Kim considers him to be her father.


Mary McCormack kicks husband out for cheating with Katharine McPhee

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actress Mary McCormack threw straying husband Michael Morris out of their Los Angeles home Sunday night after he revealed to her that photos of him smooching younger “Smash” star Katharine McPhee were about to break online, sources exclusively tell Page Six.

Morris, who directed McPhee on NBC’s failed musical series, knew the photos were about to hit because, a source adds, he tried to buy them himself to keep them from ever being seen by the public — and thus ruining his marriage and reputation.

“Mary threw Michael out of the house on Sunday night when he told her that TMZ had the photos and that they were about to be released,” said an insider.

Meantime, McPhee, 29, and her husband, Nick Cokas, 47, have been married since 2008, but reportedly have been amicably separated for months.

A source close to former “American Idol” star McPhee said that after “Smash” was canceled, she headed from New York, where it was filmed, to LA so she could work on her fourth album, which is expected to be released next year. She apparently reunited with Morris there.

Reps for McCormack, Morris and McPhee, and Cokas did not return requests for comment.

This Is England ’90 to begin filming in 2014, says Shane Meadows

This Is England creator Shane Meadows says the latest series of the hit TV drama will begin shooting next year.

The director revealed that his planned biopic of cyclist Tom Simpson is currently a priority, but that the long-awaited This Is England ’90 could overtake that project.

‘Tommy Simpson’s a bit further ahead because there’s a script in hand, but then we’re going to hopefully sit down with some of the key cast in January and do a bit of a Meadows impro session,’ Meadows told Digital Spy.

‘That could pull it up on the outside and make it a late winner to shoot for next year, so we’ll see what happens.
‘It’s a nice pressure to have, because miracles happen in those rehearsal sessions with those amazing actors sat in a room together.

‘Something might happen there, so we’re keeping a really open mind and Channel 4 and FilmFour are happy for us to go whichever way.

‘Hopefully there’ll be an official announcement reasonably soon and we’ll get rolling. They’re both going to get made, but it depends in which order.’


Emma Roberts Opens Up About Being The Bitchiest Witch On TV

The 22-year-old actress talks to BuzzFeed about her role on American Horror Story, the scene that almost made her turn it down, and how she may never escape that line about how her “vagina’s sweating.” SPOILER ALERT if you have not seen the Oct. 23 episode of American Horror Story, “The Replacements.”

After three weeks of Madison Montgomery’s fur vests, sharp tongue, and bandage dresses, American Horror Story: Coven fans are likely worried that after Wednesday’s episode, titled “The Replacements,” they’ll no longer have the teen starlet turned witch-bitch’s humor to lighten the mood on the twisted FX series. But Emma Roberts, the real actress behind Madison, hinted to BuzzFeed that this isn’t the last we’ve seen of her.

Girls Season 3 preview

On the heels of HBO’s announcement that “Girls” returns for its third season on Jan. 12, the network released a behind the scenes look on Friday.

In the video, creator and star Lena Dunham and other castmembers give fans a peek at what to expect when Season 3 returns. And the star discloses just how much fan tweets shape the coming of age series.

“I love watching the show and just refreshing, refreshing, refreshing Twitter,” Dunham said. “I really get to find out in real time whether we’re on to something and whether things feel real, because that has always been the intention of the show.”

Weir to work for NBC in Sochi; will keep mum on homophobic laws


It was just after 8 on Wednesday morning, and Johnny Weir looked — by his own assessment — “gorgeous.”

A tailored, double-breasted blazer with large gold crests at his cuffs showed off his tiny waist. Tight-fitting dark pants with thick tuxedo stripes made his legs look impossibly fit. His shiny brown hair looked as if it were in pin curls. In his hands he carried a big black Balenciaga purse.

He spun on his heels to show off his jacket. “Can you believe it? Vintage — $15 at a consignment store in Sun Valley!” he said. “I’m the same as always — fabulous!”

Weir’s purse could have held a pair of figure skates, but there won’t be any need for him to carry them to the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. On Wednesday morning, Weir announced that he was retiring from the sport after competing in two Olympics, winning three straight national championships and spending more than a decade in the sport’s spotlight.

His next performances will be as a figure skating analyst for NBC at the Games, an announcement that probably led some gay rights supporters to cheer. Weir is known for being outspoken, and there are those who think he would be a perfect ambassador for a gay rights cause in open conflict with a Russian law passed recently that makes it a crime to support “nontraditional” sexual orientation. Certainly Weir would speak out against what he described as a “terrible” law.

Tumblr Rebuilds Search Feature as it Passes 65B Posts

Tumblr has completely revamped its search feature to make it more user friendly and powerful. Among the updates are the ability to use multiple tags in one query, easier access to the explicit content filter and filtering by post type.

In the post announcing the search changes, Tumblr also notes that it has passed 65B total posts, making a more powerful search something nice to see. The previous version of Tumblr search was…anemic to say the least. Most of the time using a Google site operator would get you more relevant results.

The new search feature allows you to use multiple tags all in one go, letting you narrow the field to more specific cross-categories. You can search for #puppies and #wagging all at once now to find the perfect excited gif. There is also a subtle change to search that allows you to use simple queries without a hashtag to return both mentions of a term and posts tagged with that term.

Searching for ‘ponies’, for instance, will get you both posts that mention ponies and posts that are tagged with #ponies. Search results now also return blogs related to those queries.

The final update is related to the explicit content filter, which many have criticized for being buried and confusing to tweak. It’s now right on the search results page where it can be easily accessed. Tumblr also mentions that it’s tweaked its NSFW filtering to stop blocking tags that are not ‘natively’ explicit.

There was some controversy earlier this year over Tumblr not showing tags that were considered NSFW, but that weren’t by default (things like ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’ or ‘bisexual’). This release attempts to tweak those results to surface non-NSFW tags in regular searches, even with the filtering enabled. Tumblr also mentions that this was partially done to unblock tags that were filtered due to policies like those on Apple’s App Store.

The same day the AMAs news was announced, their Directioners were celebrating the anniversary of the release of their second single off their massive 2012 album Take Me Home, "Little Things." Their enthusiasm for the Ed Sheeran-penned slow jam hasn't wavered in the last year.

JFC it's already been one year since they released that flop song!? I'm excited to see them walking around the AMA stage tho

Katharine McPhee Separated from Husband Months Ago, "Embarrassed" by Director Affair Scandal

If only Smash had been this consistently riveting onscreen. Katharine McPhee and her series director Michael Morris stole some of the spotlight away from Kim Kardashian's engagement and Prince George's christening this week when the pair were photographed making out in broad daylight in an L.A. parking lot -- in spite of their marriages to other people.

And, while Morris' actress wife of ten years Mary McCormack allegedly kicked him out of their home after finding out the news, McPhee's situation is a little different. As rumored, the actress and American Idol runner-up, 29, has been separated from producer husband Nick Cokas for at least six months, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

Indeed, since she and husband of five year Cokas, 47, parted ways, McPhee "has had friends living with her for months," one insider says.
"She is SO embarrassed she was caught," a second source says of the undeniable photos. "She should have known better!"

In Plain Sight star McCormack and Morris share three kids together and reportedly split their time between L.A. and New Mexico. The actress, 45, "is so cool and the nicest person," the second insider adds. "It's so sad that this happened to her. She's truly great."


I'm sure.

Drake Doremus Eyes Kristen Stewart And Nicholas Hoult For Next Pic ‘Equals’

After making a Sundance splash with his awards winner Like Crazy, Drake Doremus followed it up at this year’s festival with Breathe In, a romantic drama which brought together Felicity Jones, Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan. While we were a bit lukewarm on it,the film will likely hit U.S. theaters next year and today already brings casting news for his next project, a sci-fi love story.

Scripted by Nathan Parker (Moon), we first got a glimpse of Equals during an interview this summer when Doremus said he wants to “maintain the elements of the intimacy while doing something bigger and different.” Deadline now have an update on who will be getting intimate, as Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are in talks to lead the project.

Unfortunately there’s not a great amount of additional details, but Doremus has said there will be special effects involved and added, “I’m really excited to explore a whole new thing while bringing my own passions to it and that’s what’s exciting about collaborating with someone who’s doing something totally different to you as together you can create something very original and unique by bringing different elements to the table.” Check back for more information as it come in for what’s looking to be a major step-up in scope for the director.

Production begins in early 2014 for a likely 2015 release.

OUaT in Wonderland Peter Gadiot and Emma Rigby Interviews + 1.03 sneak peek

Peter Gadiot talks Genies and romance in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

So much of the success of Once Upon a Time is based on love and romance, so it doesn't come as a surprise that the same holds true for Once Upon a Time In Wonderland.
As we head into the show's third episode tonight, Alice (Sophie Lowe) and The Knave Of Heart (Michael Socha) are busy trying to find Alice’s love, Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), who just happens to be a genie currently being held captive in a cage.
We were on the Vancouver set of Wonderland recently and sat down with Gadiot to talk about Cyrus’s journey and his experience with the new series...

[true love, he's cute, mystery blah blah blah]On getting more of Cyrus’ backstory...
Peter Gadiot: It's been surprising. Basically the surprise is that a lot of the information about Cyrus' back-story actually is going to be held until later in the season. It's an interesting thing. I'm not sure why but I'm sure there's a master plan. We learn more of the backstory of some of the other characters quite early in the season, but Cyrus is kept mysterious…I think he wasn't always the way we see him of being this always the pure hero type.
On getting Alice and Cyrus together sooner than later...
PG: That's the thing. Probably not as much as people would expect or maybe as much as they would have liked. I guess in a way it's clever enough and [we] don't spend as much time together as people want and that increases the desire for us to be reunited. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, so we're not together but it's very clear that the whole drive of the story…like Alice's every scene is about being with Cyrus. When that finally does happen, it's going to be big fun. Think about all that shit that has gone into the journeys and what we've overcome.
On how genies function in Wonderland…
PG: The creators very much said they were going to explore the genie mythology more. We have in terms of one aspect, but in terms of where they originally come from, we haven't got there yet. We haven't found out how Cyrus gets in the bottle yet. We are going to find out for sure, but that's been held back again for the second half of the season.
It's like little bits that they've put forth but it hasn't fully expanded. I hope it will be because some of the questions are meant to ask and have answered by the genies. Where do they come from? What do they do? It's a good opportunity to create a bit more of this mythology.
On whether Cyrus keeps the faith that he and Alice will be reunited…
PG: Yeah, that's a good question. It fluctuates, I think is the answer. I think ultimately there is a sense of overwhelming belief in their love. However the circumstances and the forces against them are very dark and strong. I don't think he necessarily gives up hope, but he might choose, at certain stages, a path that he believes is better for Alice, a kind of self-sacrificing way.
Obviously with each episode things change and they're adapting to the nougats of information that they've got, what they think might have happened to each other, and how that affects them.
On working with iconic characters like Jafar and Alice…
PG: Yeah, they're very different. I think what they're trying to do is very much stay away from any previous incarnation of all the characters. There are subtle hints like Jafar has the serpent's staff and things like this. In terms of how we act, Alice is very different to other Alices. Cyrus is certainly not like that genie.
They very much wanted [Cyrus] to have that wisdom that comes from hundreds of years of seeing humans and their flaws but also to have him be slightly discombobulated by the new arrival of Alice. I think in the first few episodes that is his journey of being someone who has a lot of calm and poise to someone who's shaken up and confused. He almost has a new adolescence in a way, when Alice comes and there are new things. That's an interesting journey.
Then, of course, when they're separated it's a new place for him to try and keep that wisdom but also this fear of losing someone he loves. It's a fine line and he crosses between the wisdom and this very humanlike fear and confusion.
On whether Cyrus and Jafar have a relationship…
PG: Yes. They do. It's mentioned. I definitely have spoken to Alice about Jafar. She knows about him through me. But we haven't seen the origins of their relationship yet. That again will come in the second half of the series.
On getting used to working with green screen…
PG: At first it's very tricky. It's a really unique skill, you know? I guess in very simple terms, a kind of thing you want to do as an actor is just to believe in yourself and in the situation you're putting yourself in. If you've got a huge green box that you're in, your mind is saying this is green. This is weird. This isn't real. What are you doing?
So you have this extra thing in your mind that you have to say shut up. Forget about it. Don't look at the green. Just focus on them. It's a skill, which is definitely something that I'm improving on. A lot of the big productions now have elements of green screens. It's a good thing that I'm working on it because I'm sure at some point I'll be doing some big movie where I'll have to fight off a dragon or something. I'll be like got it.
On the mystery of Cyrus…
PG: I think what's important is that Cyrus doesn't try to be mysterious. He's not like ‘oh no, I'm not going to answer those questions.’ It's just the fact that we genuinely don't know about him and what's going to come. Even after episode seven [which they were shooting at the time of this set visit] we still know very little about Cyrus. I 'm hoping by the end of it, by episode 16, we will know everything. It's very much a slow burn.
It also helps create that singular focus that Alice and Cyrus have, because both of them hadn't had anyone. But Alice is very much alone as well. She has this family in England but they've essentially discarded her and she's alone with her thoughts or the reality of Wonderland. Cyrus is alone and that's why they're like we found each other, now…there's a very strong connection between them, which is very pure and simple. All the shit that come in the way, the Red Queen, the Knave and Jafar, they try to get in the way.
That's what's genuinely cool about this series is that other series are actually too complicated. There's just too much shit going on. This one has a very simple dynamic that we can follow and each thing we know what's going to happen. It's a benefit.

Emma Rigby on the Red Queen's game

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has introduced a new side to this fairy tale land that was originally introduced in the original Once series. While Alice and the Knave search for her love, Cyrus, the Red Queen and Jafar have their own plot to find Cyrus' bottle.
I recently visited the show's sets to speak to the cast about this magical new series. Emma Rigby spoke with reporters about her elegant and conniving character's motivations and plans in Wonderland.
[The knave of hearts stole her tarts]
We've seen other Queens in the Once Upon a Time universe, how does the Red Queen differ from them?
With my Queen, with the Red Queen, the traditional Red Queen in the Through The Looking Glass novel, Lewis Carroll envisioned her as fury, but more in a very controlled, governess manner rather than somebody that's evil and very openly a villain -- an antagonist of the series.
With that in mind, I kind of wanted to bring some humor and a real different take on the idea. It's the idea of the Red Queen. She's kind of fabulous and she's enjoying it and it's like she's living in a film. She's playing the role of the villain and enjoying it and not necessarily taking herself too seriously. So I think that's gonna hopefully translate. I want the audience to kinda of be with her and like her and enjoy her.
When Once Upon a Time previously visited Wonderland, viewers were introduced to the Queen of Hearts. What's the Red Queen's relationship to her?
In the series, it's not featured. The Queen of Hearts is not mentioned, so it's as if the Red Queen is now in power of Wonderland. The Queen of Hearts is nowhere to be seen. The Red Queen [rules] after the Queen of Hearts.
What's that like to play the Red Queen?
It's a brilliant role in terms of -- I would usually always get cast as the Alice character. So to be able to play a villain is a difference. And then, suddenly, I'm dressed in the most fabulous costumes literally. It's Hollywood glamour. It's my dream. Who doesn't like to dress up and wear a crown?
Why did the Red Queen turn on Cyrus and Alice in the premiere? What is her motivation?
The Red Queen is the ruler of Wonderland, so she has all the power. She's all knowing and all seeing. She is the one person that has access to Alice and Cyrus. To her, that's the beginning of the game for her and her plan. So that move isn't necessarily to kill Cyrus, it's to start the adventures of Wonderland.
What is her goal in Wonderland?
She has one distinct thing that she wants to ascertain and she's prepared to go all the way to get that. We won't find out what that is -- I don't even know what that is -- as of yet.
How evil is the Red Queen?
We want her to be the villain, the antagonist of the series. She's got to be Alice's rival otherwise Alice has nothing to fight against. And I'd say that like every person in the world that has so many different elements to them. I think that's what we're going to find with the Red Queen that there's so much to her. Yeah, she's bad and she kind of likes it. She's like, "Yeah, I can do that." Yeah, she's bad.
Who does the Red Queen interact most often in Wonderland?
A lot of my scenes are with the character of Jafar, played by Naveen Andrews, which is the most fun and most of my scenes are with him. And, I have a lot of scenes with the White Rabbit, which is obviously really interesting to do, because you're acting to a blue pole. So that's been an interesting and suddenly new learning experience.
The scenes with the Red Queen and Jafar are one of the fantastic things about the series.We have the elements of make believe and fairy tale world where we've brought Jafar into the Wonderland format and suddenly it's two characters sparking off each other. And, I think we'll get to see that there's a kind of a real partnership between the two characters.
Are they allies?
Yes, in terms of the Alice in Wonderland theme, their relationship is like a constant game of chess. And, they are always trying to outsmart and outmove the other, but they do need each other. It's quite an interesting relationship.
What is the Red Queen's relationship with Alice?
It's really interesting because you'll see throughout the series, I don't have a lot of interaction with Alice. To the Red Queen, it's a game to her. Alice is just another person in the game of what she wants to achieve. It's not necessarily a vendetta against Alice.
Alice is just an annoyance, really, and standing in her way and she's quite blase about that. That's an interesting thing as well. It's not necessarily like the Queen of Hearts which wants to destroy Alice. She's not her main concern. She has a much bigger thing to achieve.

Against Me! Sixth album coming Jan 21!

Against Me! will release its much-anticipated sixth full-length studio album titled Transgender Dysphoria Blues on Tuesday, January 21 on their own label, Total Treble (Resist Records will release in Australia). Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the intense follow-up to the band’s previous full-length album, White Crosses, and stands as another major benchmark for the band and its career spanning 10+ years.

Recorded at Studio 606, Earth Sound Studio, Motor Studio, Total Treble Studio and mixed by Billy Bush (Garbage, Muse, Tegan and Sara), Transgender Dysphoria Blues is an insightful and highly-provocative 10-song offering written by frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, whose material examines one’s grappling with gender dysphoria, the loss of a young friend and pure self discovery, as well as love and ultimate acceptance. Featuring Grace’s signature, explicit songwriting and dominant vocals, the album also features longtime guitarist/vocalist James Bowman, drummer Atom Willard and Fat Mike of NOFX on bass for “FUCKMYLIFE666” and “Unconditional Love.” Transgender Dysphoria Blues will be supported with a full North American tour in 2014. Details to be released soon.

Madonna Sells $20 Million Bev Hills Mansion

Madonna has rid herself of her massive Beverly Hills estate ... the one she bought during her marriage to Guy Ritchie ... and she pocketed a cool $8 MILLION in the process, TMZ has learned.

Madge had only listed the property back in January for $22.5 mil ... and just 10 months later, real estate guru Kurt Rappaport closed the deal for $20 mil. Not bad considering she bought the place in 2003 for $12 mil.

Real estate sources tell us ... the lucky guy who scooped up the pad is a Wall St. big shot.

The mystery buyer is clearly a fan of privacy ... 'cause the 17,000 square foot property is incredibly secluded -- with a 500 foot tree-lined driveway ... and massive trees covering the perimeter of the estate.

The home is insane -- with 15 bathrooms, 9 bedrooms, a 2-story dining room, pool, movie theater tennis court and a gym -- 'cause as we all know, Madge LOOOVES to pump iron.

So, where's Madonna gonna live now? We're told Madge is on the hunt for a smaller place in L.A. But don't worry about her ... she's still got massive properties in London and New York.

Natalie Portman says Hollywood 'misinterprets' feminism as roles are written by men


Natalie Portman has claimed that "feminism is misinterpreted" in Hollywood films because most roles for women are written by men.

The Oscar-winning actress suggested that because characters are often "just a fantasy of a male writer", the women can keep up with the men in a physical sense, but they don't have fully formed personalities.

At the premiere of Thor: The Dark World in Leicester Square, she told Sky News: "I don't think that's necessarily feminist to see women like we see men in movies.

"Just having a range of different ways women can be - whether it's weak and strong, just being human and being real, and not just being some fantasy of a male writer - is more feminist than 'she knows how to do kung fu'."

Andie MacDowell Found HBO's 'Girls' 'Immature'

Actress Andie MacDowell will always have our hearts after starring in classic '90s movies like "Groundhog Day" and "Four Weddings And A Funeral." Like other film actresses these days she's made her way to the world of TV, starring in Hallmark Channel's "Cedar Cove."

When interviewed for Adweek about balancing her life as a mother and starring in a new TV series, MacDowell was asked about what other shows she's currently watching. While she mentioned enjoying "The Newsroom" it was when the subject turned to the Lena Dunham vehicle, "Girls" did her opinion change:

"And I watched the whole first season of 'Girls' with my daughters. I probably won’t watch the second season -- it was too immature for me -- but it was interesting," MacDowell said. "I’m going to sound like an ancient person, but I was rather shocked at what they can show on TV now!"


11 Years Ago Today, Kanye West Was In The Car Accident That Changed His Life…Here’s The Entire Story

Did you know who Kanye West was on October 23, 2002?

Maybe, if you were a hardcore rap fan, but probably not. Up to that point, Kanye West had a name mostly from his production work: the Chicago-native produced the bulk of Jay Z’s 2001 classic, The Blueprint. But he wasn’t known as a rapper: he would literally make his rapping debut a month later, appearing on Jay Z’s “The Bounce” (rapping as Ray Ray, for some reason).

But, in short, he was a nobody to most.

So when news came out that the rapper was in a serious car accident on October 23, 2002, many people just shrugged. No one knew that moment would probably end up being the most important moment of his career.

That night would be the inspiration for Kanye West’s first true big hit, “Through the Wire.”

But, what happened that night? Throughout the years, Kanye has told the story a number of times. Essentially, after finishing a late night session with Beanie Sigel, Peedi Crack and The Black Eyed Peas, Kanye left the studio in L.A., at around 3AM, in his rented Lexus. While in the car, he was cut off and he ran head-on into traffic, colliding with another car just blocks away from the W Hotel.

Michael K. Williams Also Reportedly Has Part in Inherent Vice

Today, we can confirm something which has been sputtering through the rumor mill for the better part of a couple months now. Michael Kenneth Williams -- better known as Omar from The Wire, and Chalky from Boardwalk Empire -- will indeed appear in Inherent Vice for Paul Thomas Anderson next year, according to Deadline.

Williams' part in the film is still unknown, but with this development and the announcement of Eric Roberts' participation last week, it would appear that there is still plenty about this movie for us to be pleasantly surprised by in the weeks and months ahead. Hang in there, folks!

Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold Covers 'Corduroy' on 'Fallon'

Pearl Jam Week continued yesterday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when Fleet Foxes singer Robin Pecknold came on to perform a cover of "Corduroy" at the head of a stripped-down trio consisting of two guitars and drums.

Pecknold's voice, airier than Eddie Vedder's, glides over the knots of guitars and booming beat on his version of the song, which descends into a churning breakdown before Pecknold and the other guitar player, Daniel Rossen, relocate the riff. Pearl Jam recorded "Corduroy" for their 1994 album Vitalogy, and the song reached Number 13 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.

Pearl Jam last week released their 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt, and Fallon is helping the band celebrate by dedicating a week to their music. On Monday, Chris Cornell and the Avett Brothers covered "Footsteps," while Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready is set to perform tonight with Dierks Bentley and the Roots. Pearl Jam will play Thursday and Friday.

Fleet Foxes' most recent album, Helplessness Blues, came out in 2011, though the band posted a photo on Facebook this past summer that could have been a hint that they've begun work on the follow-up.

Orlando Bloom avoids deja vu returning as Legolas in 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'

WELLINGTON, NZ - Can you really go home again? Orlando Bloom is finding out as he returns to the world of Middle Earth in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." Bloom reprises his role as the Elf with a bow, arrow and long luxurious blond hair, Legolas, that he originated in the Oscar-winning "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Rich Juz indexes all 226 clichés on "Prism"

lol go to the source b/c the gif is killing me but it is too big to embed

Katy Perry is one of the most bankable contemporary pop singers—"Roar," the first single from her new album Prism, became her eighth No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August. Prism is expected to sell about 300,000 copies its first week in stores. It is a dreadful album, way too concerned with preserving Perry's star than using said star to push sonically. It is also dreadful because Perry has absolutely nothing to say.

Her lyrics are rife with clichés and idioms that, like her sound, reiterate instead of inventing or even twisting for ironic wordplay. That much is clear from the titles of her songs: "Walking on Air," "Dark Horse," "By the Grace of God," "It Takes Two," and "Choose Your Battles" are but a few of Prism's offerings.

Without a shred of cleverness or wit, Perry shits out lyrics that would be groan-worthy coming from someone speaking idly on the subway. I calculated and the average time it takes her to drop a cliché on the Deluxe Edition, 16-track version of Prism song is 11.4 seconds. Katy Perry is a pop cultural parrot. She is squandering her platform. She is the most flavorless pop diva to hold such a post in immediate memory.

Italian photographer Yossi Loloi’s Full Beauty project : Big Women Bare All


A woman stands in a dimly lit stairwell, her hands gently perched atop the banister, her head cocked upwards and to the left. She wears black underwear and a black strapless bra, which would make the photograph as uninteresting as pretty much every other lingerie shot except for the fact that the model is utterly enormous. Her upper arms sag down past her breasts, and her stomach falls in three distinct sections, one on top of the other. Her skin, especially below the area where her waist should be, looks more like a moonscape. And her thighs and calves are so profound that her feet appear miniscule, like dollhouse accessories.

She is one of the many women featured in Italian photographer Yossi Loloi’s Full Beauty project, a collection of photos of obese women in the nude. The work, which began in 2006, was designed to challenge our accepted notions of beauty, sex, size and the female body.

"Blackfish" filmmaker explains why she decided to make the film

I remember fragments of the story of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau's killing in 2010 -- something about a ponytail, something about her slipping and falling, something about how this almost never ever happens because in these parks, the animals are happy and the trainers are safe.

But something wasn't right. I remember asking someone why an orca -- a highly intelligent animal -- would attack its trainer or essentially "bite the hand that feeds it."

We sometimes hear of dogs mauling other people, but in these cases we don't seem to hear about them attacking their masters. So why would America's lovable Shamu turn against us? How could our entire collective childhood memories of this delightful water park be so morbidly wrong?

I came in with these questions. I set out to understand this incident, not as an animal activist -- because I'm not one -- but as a mother who had just taken her kids to SeaWorld, and of course as a documentary filmmaker who unfortunately can't let sleeping dogs lie.

James Corden on Harry Styles: 'There is nothing he can't do'

James Corden has suggested that Harry Styles could consider a career charge, adding there is "nothing he cannot do".

The One Chance star believes that his friend and One Direction member could be successful as an actor.

Speaking to Heat magazine, he said: "There is nothing Harry cannot do. Just generally, there is nothing out of the realms of possibility for him. He has that thing that is unquantifiable, like Justin Timberlake has."

Corden added that Styles had shown how versatile he was when he played Marcel in the boyband's video for 'Best Song Ever' which Corden co-created.

He said: "You just find yourself gravitating towards whatever he's doing and, yeah, he was completely brilliant in the ['Best Song Ever'] video. They all were."

Corden recently defended his film One Chance to DS, where he plays the role of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

He said: "We're not making a film about a guy who won Britain's Got Talent, we're making a film about a boy who dreams of being an opera singer in a world in which nobody listens to opera."

'Liv and Maddie' Actress Joins Hailee Steinfeld in 'Barely Lethal'

 photo dove_cameron_twitter_ovOmNwzsized_zps25766237.jpg

Liv and Maddie actress Dove Cameron has joined Hailee Steinfeld in comedy Barely Lethal, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

The film, which will also star Samuel L. Jackson and Jessica Alba, follows a 16-year-old (Steinfeld) trained assassin who runs away to live a normal high school life, only to discover that fitting in isn't as easy as she would have hoped.

Cameron will play Liz Larson, the Queen Bee of the high school. Steinfeld's character Meghan moves in with Liz, and they become best friends. Liz helps Meghan acclimate to school, and comes to her aid then things get tough.

Fanboys director Kyle Newman is helming the project with a script by John D'Arco. John Cheng and Brett Ratner are producing via their Rat Entertainment, along with Hopscotch Pictures’ Sukee Chew and RKO Pictures' Ted Hartley and Vanessa Coifman.

Cameron is known for playing the lead on Disney Channel's series Liv and Maddie. She has also appeared on The Mentalist and Shameless. She's repped by Abrams Artists Agency, Industry Entertainment and attorney Patti Felker.


I actually haven't seen Dove in anything, but I stumbled upon her (and her Tumblr - music on autoplay) last year when I was looking up stuff on The Mentalist, and she seems pretty cute. She's 17, btw. I also follow her Twitter; it's kind of interesting to see someone's career from being an unknown to known, and quite possibly stardom and name-recognition.

And yes, Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones is also in this.

Should kids go see ’12 Years a Slave’ despite film’s R rating?

Actress Sarah Paulson calls 12 Years a Slave “the most accurate and true depiction of this time in our country’s history that I can think of…”

“As human being I think it’s our responsibility to take in this story,” she added.

The critically acclaimed slave epic, directed by Steve McQueen, had an impressive opening in limited theaters over the weekend, and will expand nationwide in weeks to come.

In spite of the film’s R rating (for violence, cruelty, nudity and sexuality), Paulson, who plays the evil wife of a slave master, believes adults and children should see 12 Years a Slave.

“I think everyone should see this movie,” Paulson told theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon. “As an audience member you shouldn’t just be looking for an opportunity to eat popcorn and Raisinets. This is the kind of movie that you are involved with viscerally.”

In a recent interview with VIBE, the film’s star, Chewitel Ejiofor, agreed with Paulson.

“I absolutely think that kids in school should see this movie,” Ejiofor said. “I think it’s never too late and it’s never too early to start learning and talking about human respect. I think that’s the overall message of this film.”

Do you think kids should go see 12 Years a Slave?

Bravo Finds Its Next 'Housewives': Greenlights 'Million Dollar Listing: Miami'

Bravo has picked up the keys to a new property — and it’s by the beach.

The NBCU cable network is adding to its thriving “Million Dollar Listing” franchise with “Million Dollar Listing Miami,” a luxurious, seaside edition of the reality format. Show joins the Los Angeles and New York iterations of the real estate show on Bravo’s lineup, and will hail from World of Wonder Prods., the shingle behind the entire “Million Dollar Listing” franchise. Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and Eric Detwiler will exec produce.

This is an incredibly important franchise for us,” said Shari Levine, Bravo’s senior veep of current production and original programming. “‘Million Dollar Listing’ has enormous numbers of viewers…it’s at 1.3 million total for ‘Million Dollar Listing New York,’ and ‘Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles’ will beat that.

News of the “Miami” series pickup follows Bravo’s announcement of its strongest third quarter ratings in network history, buoyed in part by “Million Dollar Listing” programs, along with “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” “Million Dollar Listing New York” was recently renewed for a third season, and “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” is expected to be renewed for a seventh season, according to sources. The franchise has been on Bravo’s lineup since 2006, and Levine notes that the program “skews evenly” across men and women.
