'Odd Thomas' Trailer

After being delayed indefinitely last summer in a legal dispute, Image Entertainment picked up the adaptation of Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas starring Anton Yelchin, and the film is coming to theaters and iTunes later this month.

Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows up with an entourage of ghostly bodices—predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction—Odd knows that his town is in trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good vs. evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.

Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) writes & directs the Dean Koontz adaptation hitting iTunes and theaters February 28th.

Ingrid Michaelson - Girls Chase Boys

Official video for Girls Chase Boys out now! But first let me just tell you where my head was in regards to this song.

Girls Chase Boys started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing. More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same.

The video takes that idea one step further, and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don't exclusively chase boys. We all know this! We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love. I hope you enjoy it! AHHH!

This queen decided to bless us with this.

Bill Nye the Science Guy: Why I'm debating creationist Ken Ham

Ken Ham will debate Bill Nye on Tuesday at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, with CNN's Tom Foreman moderating. The debate will be live-streamed at 7 p.m. ET on CNN.com, and CNN's "Piers Morgan Live" will host both Ham and Nye at 9 p.m. Tuesday after the debate.

(Opinion by Bill Nye, Special to CNN) – A lot of people have been asking why I accepted Ken Ham’s invitation to debate the origins of life Tuesday night at the Creation Museum in Kentucky.

In short, I decided to participate in the debate because I felt it would draw attention to the importance of science education here in the United States.

Selena Gomez Entered Rehab Last Month


Selena Gomez's PR reps confirmed to RadarOnline this morning that the singer underwent two weeks in rehab last month, dealing with "emotional issues" at The Meadows clinic in Arizona. Gomez entered rehab on January 5th, Radar reports, following months of "partying very hard." (And this matches a break in Selena's social media activity, which came to an abrupt halt at the beginning of January and later picked up again on the 20th.)

Though her representatives claimed Selena's stint at the Meadows was "not for substance abuse," a source told Radar she had been "experimenting" with marijuana and prescription drugs including Ambien and Xanax. Friends and family reportedly urged her to get some help and check out of the Los Angeles scene; Selena is also said to have recognized her "exhaustion," and "needed the opportunity to work on herself." And yes, Justin Bieber is named and shamed as a bad influence according to other insiders.

New Girl First Look: Linda Cardellini Makes Her Debut as Jess' Sister

Jess' sister is finally coming to town!

Linda Cardellini will make her debut as troublemaker Abby in next Tuesday's episode of New Girl (9/8c, Fox) and TVGuide.com has the exclusive first look.

"She's the opposite of Jess," executive producer Liz Meriwether tells us. "In all the ways that Jess is a good kid and the one who turned out to be a teacher and have her life together, Abby is a total mess and basically a low-level criminal." Which explains why Abby is sitting behind bars in the photo below. Hopefully Jess (Zooey Deschanel) can spare some money for bail!

LOST: Where are they now?



Though Evangeline had a small role in 2008's Hurt Locker and a Role in 2011's Real Steel, her biggest role outside of LOST is playing the flawless Tauriel in the Hobbit:Desolation of Smaug




The actor who was arguably LOST's leading star has also had the most legal trouble since the show! Aside from starring in the flop reboot of Speed Racer and in a handful of movies nobody has seen, Fox's legal troubles have kept him busy. He was arrested for DUI in May 2012, and allegedly punched a party bus driver in her vagina in 2011, though the charges were later dropped.

Sailor Moon Reboot Likely to Feature LGBT Characters

The classic anime series will debut all-new episodes in time for its 20th anniversary in the U.S. Toei Animation has revealed that a Sailor Moon reboot will begin airing in Japan this July, according to website AnimeNewsNetwork.com.

Producer Atsutoshi Umezawa announced that the new television series is neither a remake nor a continuation of the original. Instead, it will be a faithful adaptation of author Naoko Takeuchi’s “original manga and starting from scratch again.”

This news should excite LGBT fans of the popular anime series, as several queer characters featured in the Sailor Moon universe — who later had their sexuality changed or gender identity switched when the show aired in North America — will most likely remain intact this time around.

The original Sailor Moon anime became a template for the “magical girls” genre of animation and was broadcast in Japan from 1992 to 1997. It began airing in the United States in the mid-1990s via syndication.

The series will be available online via the NicoNico streaming service, with subtitles in 10 different languages

just picked up the manga (on vol. 4) and I'm rewatching the anime with it - they are sooo different from eachother

G.R.L. Return With Dr. Luke-Produced Power Pop Anthem “Show Me What You Got”


The last time we heard from G.R.L. (AKA the latest, rebranded incarnation of the Pussycat Dolls), they were singing about no good boyfriends on Smurfs 2 soundtrack cut “Vacation”. It was cute enough but not exactly career-launching material — a surprise given the involvement of pop music titans Dr. Luke and Max Martin.

Happily, the super babes are back with a song with a song worthy of their own talent and A-List collaborators. “Show Me What You Got” is a girl power anthem with attitude-filled lyrics (“you dancin’ all up on me, expectin’ something more”) and a nuclear-powered chorus. The production is pitch perfect with a smattering of trap in the verses (think Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse”) and a litany of little hooks. Listen to the song after the jump.

Grammy Award Winning Vocalist Britney Jean Spears to team up with Performer Lady Gaga for a duet!

The pop stars are aligning! Britney Spears and Lady Gaga are looking to team up to record a duet in the not-too-distant future, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

"It'll happen soon," the insider says of the superstar collaboration. In fact, the two discussed the possibility backstage at Spears' Feb. 1 Las Vegas concert, which Gaga attended as a VIP.

"During the song 'Till the World Ends,' Gaga walked to the pit and tossed Britney roses," an eyewitness tells Us of the "Applause" singer, 27, and the "Hold It Aganst Me" performer, 32. "Brit blew her a kiss!"

Mother Monster herself tweeted about the show less than 24 hours later, sharing a photo of herself in Spears' dressing room. "Me and Brit Brit," she captioned the shot. "She looked so gorgeous, the show was so much fun, and her dad gave us THE BEST BBQ. It was a #MonsterParty!"

The "Toxic" singer first expressed interest in collaborating with Gaga back in December 2013, during an online chat with fans. "I would do a duet with Lady Gaga," the mom of two shared. "I think that would be a lot of fun. I think she's very different and interesting and intricate, and I like her as an artist."

Gaga was quick to reply via Twitter. Her response? "Let's do this bitch, it's time."


Cate Blanchett leaves someone out of her acceptance speech...

There has been a lot of talk lately over whether or not Dylan Farrow's open letter in the "New York Times" alleging Woody Allen molested her as a young girl would have an effect on Cate Blanchett's Oscar chances for her role in Allen's Blue Jasmine. The conversation is rather ironic given the letter expressly mentions how Hollywood's continual doting on Allen (who was never prosecuted and denies the charges entirely) and his films have made it harder for her, but at the same time many are questioning Farrow's decision to play out an age-old family drama in the media and it continues today as Dylan's brother, Moses, has now defended Allen in the pages of People.

As someone from the outside looking in, without any knowledge whatsoever as to what's true and what isn't, I wouldn't presume to judge one way or another, though the topic of conversation is certainly an uncomfortable one. When it comes to Blanchett it would appear she's drawn her line as Jeff Wells at Hollywood-Elsewhere has posted the following video of Blanchett accepting an award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival for her work in Blue Jasmine and while she thanks damn near everyone, outside of the extras, in the film's cast she leaves off one specific writer/director.

Tom Hiddleston To Star in J.G. Ballard Adaptation 'High-Rise'

Tom Hiddleston has signed on to star in High-Rise, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s classic British thriller to be directed by Ben Wheatley from a screenplay by the director’s regular collaborator Amy Jump.

High-Rise centers on a new residential tower built in 1970s Britain, at the site of what will soon become the world’s financial hub and details the story a young doctor who becomes embroiled in a sinister world in the tower. Debauchery, violence and the primal urges of humanity are at the heart of Ballard’s 1975 satire and, with friend of the author Jeremy Thomas producing, the film will remain true to the original.

Wheatley said: “I am very excited to be working with Hiddleston on this project. He brings an intelligence, vulnerability and humour to his roles, be they art-house or blockbuster that will make Laing come alive. It's also a great privilege to be working with Ballard's seminal book.”
Hiddleston described Wheatley as “one of the most inspired directors in the U.K.” He added: “He [Wheatley] brings with him impeccable taste, courage, wit and singular brilliance: the perfect combination to realise the ambition of J. G. Ballard's unique vision.”

High-Rise is slated for a summer shoot in the U.K.

Journalists at Sochi are live-tweeting their hilarious and gross hotel experiences

Skiers walk by a construction site ahead of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

Amid continued debate over whether or not Sochi is prepared to host the 2014 Olympics, which begins Thursday, reporters from around the world are starting to check into local hotels — to their apparent grief. Some journalists arriving in Sochi are describing appalling conditions in the housing there, where only six of nine media hotels are ready for guests. Hotels are still under construction. Water, if it’s running, isn’t drinkable. One German photographer told the AP over the weekend that his hotel still had stray dogs and construction workers wandering in and out of rooms.

Terrorism and Security Drive Concerns

With the 2014 Winter Olympics approaching, more say it was a bad decision (44%) than a good decision (32%) to hold the games in Russia. About one-in-four (24%) say they don’t know.

Concerns about terrorism and safety are foremost among those who think it was a bad decision to hold the Olympics in Russia. In an open-ended question, 62% of those who say it was a bad decision to hold the Winter Olympics in Russia mention terrorism or general security in Sochi as a reason they feel this way.

Far fewer (5%) mention the Russian government or President Vladimir Putin as reasons why it was a bad decision to hold the games there, while 4% say Russia’s treatment of gays and lesbians make the country a bad choice to host the games.

Iggy Azalea: The New Classic release date and new collaboration with Charli XCX.

News that Iggy Azalea‘s much anticipated/delayed debut LP The New Classic now has a concrete release date (April 14) was a relief for long-suffering fans and now the Aussie femcee has given Azaleans another reason to celebrate. Her new single “Fancy” — a collaboration with English singer/songwriter Charli XCX — is due later this week.

The 23-year-old posted the hand drawn cover on Instagram account over the weekend with the caption: “so this is happening sometime late next week.” It’s great to see that Iggy’s album campaign is back on track. The involvement of Charli XCX is also promising. Having penned Icona Pop‘s “I Love It”, she certainly knows her way around a catchy chorus and the rap diva really needs a radio hit to reach the next level.

Leonard Nimoy Diagnosed with COPD

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Science fiction's greatest living legend, Leonard Nimoy (you may know him as Spock [that's Mister Spock to you]), has revealed he has chronic lung disease.

Speculation as to the state of the iconic Star Trek actor's health arose after he was spotted in a wheelchair at a New York airport earlier this week.

The 82-year-old had a breathing tube attached.

Concerned fans have been seeking answers ever since "Spock" stopped appearing at conventions in 2011. He did, however, make a guest appearance in the recent movie Star Trek: Into Darkness, as well as in an Audi commercial.

Last night (Jan 30th), a tweet on Leonard Nimoy's official twitter account stated:

The sign-off refers to his character's well-known phrase from Star Trek, "Live long and prosper."

COPD is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It's a degenerative condition that makes it increasingly hard for sufferers to breathe. It is usually associated with severe coughs, wheezing and a shortness of breath. The leading cause is listed on many medical sites as being smoking.

Pussy Riot Tell Colbert Why They're Free: 'They Got Fed Up With Us'

When Stephen Colbert was introducing Pussy Riot for his show Tuesday night, he refused to say the band's name – instead he showed video of a succession of mainstream news reporters awkwardly push their way through the band name. It was a fitting introduction, considering the two recently freed members of Pussy Riot – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina – are making the media rounds. In addition to Colbert, they appeared on Irish talk-show host Brendan O'Connor's program for an awkward exchange and spoke more generally at a press conference in New York City. But it was on Colbert's show that they broke smiles and laughed at the first joke.

"You are members of, pardon the expression, 'Pussy riot,'" Colbert said after he sat down with the women and an interpreter. After establishing that the pair had not yet visited an Olive Garden, the talk-show host asked them why they were put in jail. "We sang a fun song in a church," Alyokhina said, to cheers in the audience.

They also returned jokes to Colbert. When the talk-show host told them, "You will be searched when you leave the building, Tolokonnikova said, "We've had two years of practice hiding things from [being] searches."

Together, they conversed and joked about Russia's laws about homosexuals. The women discussed how, before Pussy Riot, they kissed about 40 policewomen, who would then ask them, "Why do you have to do this in public?" Regarding why Russian authorities had released "dangerous criminals" who sing in churches, Tolokonnikova said, "They got fed up with us."

Farrah Abraham: I Was Drugged & Raped After Sex Tape Release

Farrah Abraham has been through a lot in the past few years, and this former Teen Mom star is opening up about a traumatizing event in her life that she's kept quiet until now. Farrah reveales that she was raped multiple times after the release of her porn movie, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.

“I was drugged and raped more than once," Farrah said, adding that she put herself in a slew of unsafe situations in the wake of her sex tape. "I allowed the [wrong] type of people into my life. It was a very dark time."

This is shocking and saddening news to say the least, but Farrah's recent sexual assault isn't the first time she's been physically abused. This 22-year-old reality star also opened up about the abuse she experienced at the hands of her parents, Debra Danielson and Michael Abraham.

“[They] would beat me with a belt if I acted out," she said. "I had cuts, bruises, welts, swelling and scars.”

Fans of Teen Mom will remember Debra slapping Farrah on the show, which Farrah says was the last straw.

“It was a turning point,” she explains. “I needed to stop the abuse.” Luckily, Farrah has been able to get through these traumatic events thanks to therapy. "I [still have] a lot of issues,” she says, “but I’m more aware now, and I’m determined to break the pattern.”

We assume Farrah has been working on her relationship with Debra as well as Michael — who lives with Farrah in Texas and often cares for her daughter, Sophia.

Game Post !! Worlds That Should Be Visited In Kingdom Hearts III + Strider Release Date

The Kingdom Hearts franchise seemed like such a strange combination when it was first announced. Who would have ever thought we’d see Disney and Final Fantasy intertwined into one game? I got the first game along with my PlayStation 2 the year the game launched and instantly fell in love with Kingdom Hearts. This has continued over the years as I’ve played each and every console or handheld release in the franchise. With Kingdom Hearts II last releasing in 2006, it has been a long wait for the true follow-up, though Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance was essentially that. Kingdom Hearts III was officially announced at E3 2013, but we have very little info so far.

After seeing a few Disney movies as of late, I got to thinking about the next entry in the game and what worlds I would most like to see visited. As a result, I came up with the top 10 worlds I’d most like to see visited in Kingdom Hearts III when we finally see it release in the coming years. And just for those that are wondering, neither Star Wars or Marvel will be on this list. They could show up somehow, but I’d rather not see them be full worlds. I also left off follow-ups to old worlds, such as a new Tron, Pirates of the Caribbean, or Aladdin world. Please tell us the worlds you most want to see in the comments below as well.

Octavia Spencer and Quvenzhane Wallis Book Roles In Russell Crowe Drama 'Fathers and Daughters'

Octavia Spencer and Quvenzhane Wallis have both joined the cast of the drama, Fathers and Daughters, which is based on a Black List script penned by Brad Desch.

The actresses will co-star in the film alongside Russell Crowe, Diane Kruger, Amanda Seyfried, and Aaron Paul, in what Variety calls "a love story between a father and daughter living 25 years apart in New York City."

Gabriele Muccino (Pursuit Of Happyness) is attached to direct the Voltage Pictures project, which is heading to the European Film Market in Berlin this month, to be sold.

Octavia Spencer will play the head of the psych clinic where Seyfried’s character counsels troubled children, while Quvenzhane Wallis will play a patient at the clinic who hasn’t spoken a word for a year, since her mother was killed.

Crowe will of course play the male lead, a novelist struggling with mental illness in 1988, while raising a 5-year-old daughter; and Seyfried will play the present-day adult daughter, now 30 years old, fighting her own demons from a troubled childhood.

The busy Spencer enters 2014 with Fruitvale Station in her recent past, as well as roles in Joon-ho Bong's upcoming post-apocalyptic thriller Snowpiecer, as well as the James Brown biopic starring Chadwick Boseman.

Meanwhile, Wallis, who had a minor role in 12 Years A Slave, can currently be seen in Maserati's Super Bowl 48 commercial, and will next appear as the title character in Sony’s remake of the musical Annie.

George Clooney-Tina Fey plot thickens: 'downright dirty' payback

George Clooney is planning "downright dirty" payback for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Golden Globes gag about him, already humorously swiping at the women via his "Monuments Men" costar Matt Damon.

Clooney, whose "Gravity" role played nicely into their joke about him rarely dating women his own age, put the women on notice last month following the memorable jape. More recently, he benevolently derided the hosts with stationery that he had made to impersonate Damon.

"I've already started the ball rolling. I used Matt, sorry," Clooney said in a town-hall-style interview for Entertainment Weekly Radio with his "Monuments Men" costars. The interview will air on Friday.

It turns out that Clooney, 52, obtained stationery in Damon's name and sent a letter to Fey as his costar calling them out for the jokes they also made about Damon during the hosting gig. The women, who have long-running rapport with Damon, infamously dubbed him a "garbage" man among the A-listers in attendance. (Incidentally, Clooney did not attend this year's award show.)

"I send her a letter going, 'Dear Tina, Listen..." Clooney said, laughing. "It's 'from' Matt and it says, 'Look, it sounds hypocritical because I laughed about jokes about George and Leo, but that's sort of what people think about them.... But when you call me a garbage man it just seems like low-hanging fruit. It seems like an easy joke. I don't want an apology or anything else. I just want you to know that my kid now calls me 'the garbage man.'"

'Aaron wishes to pursue acting as a future, being in movies or perhaps a T.V. sit-com,' the feature said.

Holmes-Foxx romance rumors swirl after Super Bowl

Rumors of a secret romance between Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx continue to swirl after the pair spent time together in New York during Super Bowl weekend.

We are told Holmes, 35, and Foxx, 46, have been seeing each other since last summer and recently spent time together at his mansion in California. But they’re keeping their relationship under wraps out of respect for her ex­husband Tom Cruise, sources add.

One source said, “Katie flew private to California to stay with Jamie at his home around the Grammys [which took place Jan. 26].

“Foxx’s beautiful daughter Corinne was his date for the Grammys. But he and Holmes also spent time together during Super Bowl weekend, although they attended the game separately,” the insider noted.

But the source added they are treading carefully because Cruise is a friend of Foxx. The two actors appeared together in 2004 crime thriller “Collateral.” Cruise and Holmes split in July 2012 after just less than six years of marriage. “Jamie is being careful because he has a lot of respect for Tom,” our insider added.

Holmes and Foxx were first linked after they were spotted dancing together at Ron Perelman’s Apollo in the Hamptons gala last August. At the time, both strongly denied rumors of a romance.
Oscar winner Foxx said last summer, “[The rumors] are 100 percent not true. In fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.”
Foxx also joked to ABC News at the time, “I had Colin Powell onstage dancing [too], so they could have said me and Colin Powell were ­dating,” and branded the buzz about Holmes “absurd.”
But we are told the couple have remained close and also quietly met in Miami over the New Year’s holiday.

Holmes’ rep denies the story, saying her trip to California was to meet a director about a new movie project. Foxx’s rep declined to comment.

Cate Blanchett Cancels Morning Show Appearances

Cate Blanchett is one of the stars of the new film The Monuments Men, and the actress is also up for an Academy Award, but following the tragic death of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman, she has been trying to stay out of the spotlight.

Blanchett was set to appear on two morning shows on Wednesday: Good Morning America and Live! With Kelly and Michael. The actress' reps said that the interviews were canceled "to allow Cate the time and privacy to grieve for the loss of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman."

Is anyone here planning to see this? The novel is fantastic, but it seems like the film is only going to scrape the surface of the story. Still, I'm curious to see this - if nothing else it looks lovely.

Naomi Campbell Hates Russians, Bullies Contestant on the Face

Naomi Cambell has denied accusations that she 'bullied' a contestant on her modeling competition show The Face. Kira Dikhtyar, 24, from Russia, said that the supermodel's attitude had caused her psychological damage and claimed that the network is still paying for her psychiatrist. 'Naomi hates Russians,' said the aspiring model, who appears in the second season of Naomi's panel show set to debut next month.

'She's an amazing woman, but it's very hard to work with her. She put all her [negative] energy on me,' said Kira. 'After filming ended, they sent me to doctors. I'm still recovering,' she added, in an interview with New York Post.

Meanwhile, Naomi's team have categorically refuted Kira's claims.

Burial At Sea Episode 2 Release Date Annouced

The second chunk of the two-part BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea DLC will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on March 25, developer Irrational Games has announced.

The release date follows a tweet by Irrational Games chief Ken Levine's saying that Burial at Sea Episode 2 would be significantly longer than its predecessor.

Levine said that a completionist player--someone looking to rummage through absolutely everything in BioShock Infinite's take on underwater city Rapture--would take between five and six hours.

That could be enough time to play through Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes three times!

A common complaint from players of Burial at Sea Episode 1 was that it was too short, with many players finishing it off in 90 minutes or less.

"Burial at Sea seems a prime example of the tail wagging the dog, and the result is an adventure with fantastic sights and sounds that don't come together in a meaningful way," said GameSpot's Kevin Van Ord in his 5/10 review of Episode 1. Can Episode 2 bring in a higher score?

Sports Post ! Kevin Love Goes Down Hard in Brutal Fall Against LA Lakers + More

The floor never likes losing to NBA players, and it proved that once more when Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love took a nasty spill during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's contest against the Los Angeles Lakers.

While driving the lane, Love collided with Robert Sacre and couldn't stop his limbs from flailing in every direction possible. With his leg kicking up in the air, the power forward went down hard until his lower regions made hard contact with the hard(er)wood.

Harry Styles Dating Pat Benatar's 29 year old Daughter Haley Giraldo?

Does Harry Styles have a new lady in his life?
Earlier today, romance rumors hit the web claiming that the 20-year-old One Direction singer had begun dating Pat Benatar's 29-year-old daughter Haley Giraldo.
"They met in Los Angeles last year at a One Direction concert and have seen each other on the sly anytime Harry's been back in town," a source told Star magazine. "They talk almost every day when he's in London and he sends her lots of romantic gifts. They've been trying to keep it on the down-low."

Adding fuel to the romance fire is a Twitter pic that Giraldo shared back in August of her and a girlfriend posing with the Brit boy-banders. She captioned the group shot, "So much fun seeing these cuties of one direction kill it in concert. @Harry_Styles @onedirection @Real_Liam_Payne."
But don't worry 1D fans. Styles and Giraldo are not getting hot and heavy. "It's completely false," a rep for the band tells E! News of the false dating rumors.
And if you need any more proof that the twosome aren't an item, Giraldo took to Twitter to address the romance rumors. "Where do they come up with such crazy stories w zero merit! U keep ur personal life private, and people just make up there own stories!" she wrote earlier today. " "Where do they come up w this s--t and why me ugh," she went on, adding, "Last thing im going to say addressing this. Whoever is spreading lies needs to stop. It's really not ok."
As for the photo of Styles and Giraldo, a source tells E! News, "Haley's mom got her tickets backstage for a One Direction show and that's how she met Harry. It was through the music connections...They weren't hooking up at that time but stayed in regular touch. They are often speaking to one another and they also Skype. There is definitely a connection there."

Meanwhile, Styles has been rumored to be romancing Kendall Jenner. Styles and Jenner have hung out several times, most recently getting cuddly during an Eagles concert in L.A. last month.

American Idol Contestant's Brother Murdered, Racial Conspiracy near my Hometown

So I live in a town about 90 miles outside of Houston, Texas. Not far from me is a town called Jasper. This town has been known for very racial tensions especially since the dragging death of James Byrd, Jr by three white men back when I was a young girl. It is well known that Jasper is a racist town. I don't know if they are trying to keep this story hush hush or what.

Here is the American Idol contestant, Savion Wright, who is related to the murder victim, Alfred Wright.

Evangeline Lilly Eyed For Female Lead in Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

After already tapping Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michel Pena to star in “Ant-Man,” Marvel is now in early talks with Evangeline Lilly for the female lead.

Edgar Wright is directing the superhero film with Kevin Feige producing. Wright also co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish.

Plot details are still vague, but fans have suspected Wright is taking a different approach. It is unclear who Lilly would be playing, though some insiders say she would play Pym’s (Douglas) daughter and Lang’s love interest.

Pym didn’t have a daughter in the comics but Cornish and Wright could certainly have switched things up in their version by giving him one.

Marvel had no comment.

Production is set to start in April.

Lilly was most recently seen in New Line’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” She is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment.

'Psych' to end after current eigth season

USA will be bidding farewell to long-running dramedy “Psych,” as the cabler announces that the detective series’ current season will be its last.

Final episode will air March 26 and be followed by an hourlong aftershow featuring a Q&A with the cast and show creatives.

Created by Steve Franks, “Psych” debuted on USA in July 2006, and has been the network’s longest-running original series. Program ranked as one of cable’s top five series on Wednesday nights last year among key demos including adults 18-49 and total viewers. USA bowed the eighth season of “Psych” on Jan. 8 this year.

“‘Psych’ has made an indelible imprint on the television landscape, with a unique brand of comedy,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series’ incredible run.”

Could a spinoff be in the works, though?

The prez added, “While the series will wrap in March somehow I don’t believe we’ve heard the last of Shawn and Gus.”

Stream Noah Gundersen's Powerful Debut Album 'Ledges'

Watch as the singer-songwriter records opening track "Poor Man's Son"

Singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen has three EPs to his name — 2008's Brand New World, 2009's Saints and Liars, and 2011's Family — but the 24-year-old has yet to put out a proper full-length. That'll change on February 11, when the Washington native releases Ledges, his debut album.

The upcoming LP was recorded in Seattle's Studio Litho, the homebase of Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard, and was crafted with the help of Gundersen's sister, Abby (who supplies violin, cello, and piano), and his younger brother, Jonathan, who plays drums. Ledges spans 11 tender tracks and weaves together tales of faith, temptation, redemption, death, and doubt, offering the kind of perspective usually found in much older tunesmiths.

Inside Patrick Dempsey's Welcoming Malibu Home

Patrick Dempsey has at least one thing in common with his Grey's Anatomy character, Dr. Derek Shepherd – a gleaming Airstream trailer, parked permanently in the backyard. Dempsey, 48, shows off the trailer, the grounds and the rest of the impressive Malibu home he shares with his family in the March Architectural Digest.

"We were looking for a little land and space, and a house with some architectural significance," he tells the magazine. The house was designed by celebrated architect Frank Gehry, and was originally intended to be a combined studio and residence when it was built in 1968.

Which ‘Real World’ Housemate Looked The Most Shocked By The Exes’ Invasion?

by Matthew Scott Donnelly

Thought Taylor Swift‘s surprised face was pronounced? Clearly you missed last week’s “Real World: Ex-Plosion” episode, in which the show’s cast members came home from a day trip to find out their exes (minus Jamie‘s) had moved in. The six housemates tried their best to be cordial, but amid hugs and how-are-yous, there was no way they could hide their looks of utter shock. And you know what? We can’t say we blame them. Well played, producers!

From Jenny‘s lowered jaw to Arielle‘s fit of maniacal laughter at the prospect of the drama to come, each of the cast members had an evident reaction to the bomb dropped on their San Francisco pad. Relive all of the reunion magic in GIFs, tell us who looked the most confused and be sure to see how the exes’ invasion pans out on tonight’s new “Real World: Ex-Plosion”!

'Borgen' Is Denmark's 'West Wing' (But Even Better)

The Danish television series Borgen about a female party leader who unexpectedly becomes Denmark's prime minister was a hit in its home country and in the U.K. It won numerous international prizes, and a cult following in the U.S. after its sporadic TV broadcasts — Stephen King named it his favorite piece of pop culture of 2012. The third and final season has just been released on DVD by MHz Networks, which also brought out seasons one and two.

I've spent most of my life being fascinated by politics, but Washington has grown so stridently dysfunctional, I can barely stand to watch the news. And though I enjoy shows like Veep and House of Cards, they're so devoutly cynical they almost feel like part of the problem.

As an antidote to this, I highly recommend Borgen, the crest of the current wave of Danish TV that's given us The Killing and The Bridge. Taking its name from the Copenhagen castle that's the seat of government, Borgen plays like a more astringent version of The West Wing, a show it clearly borrows from and improves on. Its third and final season is just out on DVD, but you'll want to start at the very beginning, which instantly sucks you into the world of Danish politics, with its idealists and ideologues, sleazy tabloids and state-run TV networks, bullying billionaires and fussy bureaucrats with minds of their own.
