Ranking the 'Veep' staff in order of incompetence

Once a "political leper," Vice President Selina Meyer will amp up her campaign for the highest office in the land when Veep returns on Apr. 6. Though, with this bunch of jokers and opportunists behind her, it doesn't look good. In honor of the upcoming third season premiere of the HBO comedy, we've organized the office of the VP (that's "Vaguely Personable," to some) from least to most useless.

5. Sue Wilson, Personal Assistant
Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) is the iron gate between Selina and the outside world. She wield's her phone like a weapon and can be counted on to not only shut down every person who tries to get through, but also to eviscerate them personally in the process. No, the president hasn't called.

Beyoncé’s Half Brother Heading to a Homeless Shelter

In Touch has learned that Beyoncé’s half brother and his mother, Alexsandra Wright, the former girlfriend of the singer’s father, Mathew Knowles, will soon be living in an LA-area homeless shelter.

Alexsandra exclusively tells In Touch that she and their 4-year-old son, Nixon, are financially struggling — and no one in the Knowles family has offered to help find them a home. “Nixon deserves to know his family, and I hope one day he will meet his sister Beyoncé,” Alexsandra tells the mag.

On March 3, a judge ruled that because Mathew, 63, lost his gig as his superstar daughter’s manager in 2011, his child support payments should be retroactively reduced, from $12,000 to $2,400 per month.

The ruling means he won’t have to make another payment for almost two years. “I can’t imagine how Beyoncé feels knowing she has a homeless brother,” Alexsandra says. “I know if I were in the same position, I would reach out. Maybe she is too busy.”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Syfy is looking to the gods for its next scripted effort.

The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has ordered to series the 13-episode mythology drama Olympus, set in the world of humans, gods and monsters, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

Production begins this summer in Vancouver and London, with casting underway. Olympus, from the team behind Syfy minis Tin Man, Alice and Neverland, will premiere in 2015.

Olympus centers on how a few brave men and women banished the gods to the realm of the unconscious: a place they called the Underworld, or the Kingdom of Hades. The series follows Hero on his journey as he transforms from a fresh-faced and raw young man through the dramatic experiences of betrayal, love, disappointment, empowerment and exile, until he emerges a ruthless leader of man and a match for the gods themselves.

"Olympus is a fantastic blend of action, intense thrills, creatures and great storytelling. It will feature characters from mythology in a way never before imagined," said Chris Regina, senior vp programming at Syfy. "It's an excellent complement to our roster of programming, and we can't wait to share the adventures of Hero with the Syfy audience."

Added Halmi Sr., "I'm thrilled that the team of Willing, O'Connor and Halmi are together on another exciting Syfy project. With the success of Tin Man, Neverland and Alice, we are confident that this will be another epic adventure of television."


In Conversation with Ben Wheatley, Alex Zane & Edith Bowman and an Update on "High Rise"

Last Saturday I went along to the Jameson Empire Done in 60 Seconds Global Final which as expected turned out to be a great evening celebrating the aspiring filmmakers whose 60 second films ran in the competition. The DISS competition culminated with David Smith being crowned the winner at the prestigious Jameson Empire awards the following evening for his incredibly entertaining Done in 60 Seconds version of There Will Be Blood.

Along with some other film type people I was fortunate to chat with some of the the Done in 60 Seconds judging panel specifically Edith Bowman, Alex Zane and the man in black himself - Ben Wheatley.

Peter Mayhew back as Chewbacca in 'Star Wars VII'

The trio of new leads for Star Wars: Episode VII has yet to be revealed, but an actor from the original franchise is returning to reprise his role.

Peter Mayhew will play Chewbacca for Disney and Lucasfilm's upcoming sequel, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Mayhew played the legendary Wookiee and Han Solo's co-pilot in the original trilogy, beginning with Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in 1977. Rumors have recently surfaced that he may be reprising his role as he canceled an appearance at Texas convention Comicpalooza "due to filming.” Since the convention takes place May 23-26, many fans wondered if that meant the actor would be busy with Episode VII.

Mayhew, who also played Chewbacca in prequel film Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, has mainly spent his career playing the iconic character, but also appeared in the horror film Terror and did voice work in the British version of Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy. He's repped by Entertainment Legends Management and Cohen & Gardner.

‘Ant-Man’ Finds a Villain in Marvel One-Shot Actor Matt Gerald

The cast of Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man comes from all over the world of film and television. But to find the latest addition, Marvel didn’t even have to look outside the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Matt Gerald, who appeared as White Power Dave in the Marvel One-Shot All Hail the King, has reportedly boarded Ant-Man in a villainous role. Gerald joins a colorful cast that also includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña, Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, and Corey Stoll.

Deadline reported the news. Although Gerald is already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to All Hail the King, it’s unclear whether he’d be playing the same character in Ant-Man. Pretty much all the details on his Ant-Man role are being kept under wraps, aside from the fact that he’ll be a baddie. We don’t even know if he’s the big bad.

Gerald’s specialty seems to be tough guys — military men and the like — so make of that what you will. Aside from his brush with the Mandarin, Gerald’s resume also includes Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Avatar, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Escape Plan. He has also guest-starred on TV series such as Intelligence, Castle, Hawaii Five-0, and Dexter. Gerald will next be seen in the supernatural thriller Solace, with Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins.

Wright wrote the Ant-Man script with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). The film will center around Scott Lang (Rudd), who steals the Ant-Man technology from Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas). There’s been speculation that Lilly could be playing Janet van Dyne a.k.a. the Wasp and Wilson could be playing industrialist Darren Cross, but again, nothing’s been confirmed.

Ant-Man begins shooting this May in Atlanta. The movie opens July 17, 2015, kicking off Phase Three of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.

Taylor Armstrong gets re-married

Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong married attorney John Bluher on Friday, People reports.
"Today, John, [my daughter] Kennedy and I became a family," Armstrong said. "I married my best friend and Kennedy's family circle became complete."
The couple tied the knot in a beachside ceremony at the Bel-Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. The 120 guests, including her Housewives co-stars Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump, watched as Armstrong's 8-year-old daughter Kennedy walked her down the aisle.

This is Armstrong's second marriage. Her first, to Russell Armstrong, was documented on the Bravo series until he committed suicide in 2011 while the pair was separated. The reality star met Bluher when he helped her with legal issues following Russell's death.

"John loves me for exactly who I am," she added. "I just know there will never be enough days with him."

5 (3) Reasons Black Widow is the Best Thing In ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

When Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuted last week, we flocked to our local cinemas in hordes and dropped over $300 million worldwide in the biggest April release ever. Oh Captain, my Captain indeed. There were a plethora of reasons to love this latest Marvel installment: some were cheering loudly in the theater over the amazingly coordinated fight scenes, others transformed into newly minted Falcon fanboys and girls. But to gloss over all of it and say it was great without recognizing one of the biggest driving forces behind the success of the film would be a huge disservice to one of the smartest and most talented women in the industry—which is why I’m calling it here and now: Scarlett Johansson and her character, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow), were the best thing about The Winter Soldier. Hands down.

Maisie Williams on Arya's dark twist

In Sunday night’s Game of Thrones premiere, Arya crossed a name off her death-wish list.

With a little brutal help from The Hound, the orphaned Stark girl took out Polliver, one of Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane’s men who she witnessed torturing and murdering innocent people in the show’s second season, after Arya was captured along with a group headed to Castle Black. Not only did Arya run her sword Needle through Polliver, she tormented him too, and seemed pretty satisfied by her actions.

Rob Lowe Talks Justin Bieber With Oprah Winfrey

He’s been through the teen heartthrob phase and came out on the other end as a successful star so Rob Lowe knows what Justin Bieber is going through these days.

The “Parks and Recreation” stud sat down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss the tension of Bieber’s life as an artist and idol.

Rob shared, “I have tremendous empathy. He makes really good music, but I think he knows the dark secret, and the dark secret is 80 percent of his audience doesn’t give a sh*t about the music. And he knows it. It bums him out.”

“They care about lemming-think, and their girlfriends and oohing and aahing and screaming, [and] it has nothing to do with what he’s doing as an artist. He is the guy who is standing in front at a moment that they’re going through a developmental thing… If it wasn’t him, it would be somebody else, like it was me.”


Naya Rivera covers 'Da Man' Magazine!

Naya Rivera dons a plunging neckline for a feature in Da Man‘s magazine’s April/ May 2014 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On what’s it like working on Glee: “Stressful (laughs), but it’s something we’ve been doing for a really long time now, so we’ve all got the hang of it. We actually just finished filming the 100th episode, so we had a 100th episode celebration. All of the cast, the producers, the writers, everyone was here and they put together a really sweet collage of every episode that we’d ever recorded. It’s not just stressful. We goof around and have a lot of fun, too. We’re like a big family here on set. We’re all friends, and we hang out outside of work. It’s a really good group of people to be working with.”

On meeting her fiance Big Sean on Twitter: “I actually started following him on Twitter and I mentioned that I was a big fan. Then some fans started to alert him that I was following him. His assistant happens to be a big fan of Glee, knows my character on the show and knows who I am. So Big Sean became curious and started to ask who I was. A date was set, and it all just happened from there. The way our relationship blossomed is like any other relationship. We went on a date and we enjoyed each other’s company; we went on another and another, and it developed like any normal relationship.”

On being active with charity work: “It’s really important to give back whether you’re in the entertainment industry or not. It’s something that everyone should do and should want to do. I have my own reasons for getting involved with the various charities that I’m a part of, and I want to start something else on my own, a cause with my own vision of what I’d like to make a difference in and with my own direction. I think it’s everyone’s responsibility to give back.”

Nathan Fillion hints at Guardians of the Galaxy role


The Castle star who's been longtime rumored for the title role in Marvel's Ant-Man, Nathan Fillion, has revealed or rather hinted that he'll feature in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Having worked frequently with and become good friends of both Joss Whedon and James Gunn, Nathan Fillion has been longtime rumored, or favored, for a role in Marvel Studios' ever-growing cinematic universe. While the actor has previously declared being tied up with ABC's Castle series and “not being famous enough” as reasons why he has yet to play a Marvel character, Fillion attended the Wizard World Comic-Con over the weekend, where he was asked by a fan if he was wanting a part in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy.

“Wanting to get a part… or maybe did,” Nathan Fillion responded. He then paused before adding, “I’m just saying maybe. Maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.” Guardians of the Galaxy recently wrapped reshoots, for which director James Gunn has hinted involving: “Anything we want, but didnt get,...something to make the movie better,...cool cameo idea.” [source]

All hail Queen Bey. Fresh off her world tour, Beyoncé graces the May 2014 Power issue of gay lifestyle magazine Out. The “Partition” singer channels Marilyn Monroe, rocking a curly blonde bob and pearl necklace in the stunning black-and-white photo.

In the issue, Blue Ivy’s mother speaks out on behalf of her fellow females. “There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists,” says Bey. “Men are free and women are not. That is crazy.”

She also encourages women to celebrate their sexuality. “You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being,” she continues. “There is unbelievable power in ownership and women should own their sexuality.”

Look out for more photos from the issue, which hits newsstands later this month.

Batman TV Series DVD Set To Include New Bonus Material From Adam West & Burt Ward

Earlier this year, it was announced that the Batman TV series, which ran from 1966 to 1968 on ABC, would be released later this year on DVD. In the initial announcement, not many details were revealed beyond that the home video release would include the entire series.
In an appearance at the Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con, Batman TV stars Adam West and Burt Ward revealed some additional details about the Batman TV series home video release, along with a release date for the collection.

“Finally, after an innumerable number of years, our series is going to be coming out, all 120 episodes,” said Ward. “I understand it’s right at the end of November this year in time for Christmas.”

Ward added, “I know this last week, both Adam and I at separate times, we went in and we filmed some additional bonus material for Warner Bros. that’s going to be included with the programs. And I also understand that they’ve really done a tremendous job digitally remastering our series so that it’s really going to be just absolutely gorgeous on DVD. So I think you can look forward to a very, very high class product.”

“Warner Bros. had a very fine director/producer they hired,” said West. “And he asked us the most profound questions. And Burt agrees that he asked us things that people have never asked before. And it was tough to answer, but I think we were both very honest and straightforward and told him what he wanted to know.”

“And as a result you folks with the new DVD can see us naked,” joked West.
West added, “We answer questions and tell you things that we’ve never said before. They were so tricky.”
