Sigourney Weaver will transform in Avatar 2, 3 and 4

Sigourney Weaver will be back for James Cameron's multiple "Avatar" sequels, but she may not quite be herself.

Weaver's character Dr. Grace Augustine [spoiler?]died at the end of the 2009 original, but the Oscar nominee says she'll appear in all three sequels, noting that her character will evolve throughout the trilogy.

"It will be challenging for me," Weaver told Vulture. "I can't talk about it, but my part is a little different in each one. I'll transform somewhat. We'll have to talk again when I survive this. For now, I'm going to skittle around and enjoy this leisure time."

With plans to shoot "Avatar" 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously, Weaver will be busy for some time.

"It's going to be an adventure!" she continued. "It will be awesome. I can't even imagine what I am taking on — and what James Cameron is taking on — with filming three 'Avatars' at once, but ...Peter Jackson did it with the 'Hobbit' films, so we have that to look to."


Depp's Transcendence May Have a Point...

Sometimes Stephen Hawking writes an article that both mentions Johnny Depp and strongly warns that computers are an imminent threat to humanity, and not many people really care. That is the day there is too much on the Internet. (Did the computers not want us to see it?)

Hawking, along with MIT physics professor Max Tegmark, Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek, and Berkeley computer science professor Stuart Russell ran a terrifying op-ed a couple weeks ago in The Huffington Post under the staid headline "Transcending Complacency on Superintelligent Machines." It was loosely tied to the Depp sci-fi thriller Transcendence, so that’s what’s happening there. “It's tempting to dismiss the notion of highly intelligent machines as mere science fiction," they write. “But this would be a mistake, and potentially our worst mistake in history.”

tl;dr: Scientists reference Depp's movie in argument that AI could possibly destroy humanity in the near future.

Daniel Radcliffe will never date a fan of Harry Potter

THEY grew up together making the Harry Potter films but Daniel Radcliffe admits he rarely speaks to Emma Watson nowadays and prefers to meet “new people”.

Daniel, 24, shared his formative years with Emma, also 24, who played swotty schoolmate Hermione to his boy wizard title role.

But the two have not remained close since completing the final film in 2011.

“I haven’t spoken to her in quite a while. I’m sure we’ll see each other at some point. We were all together for 10 years so we’re excited to meet new people now,” he tells US OK! magazine.

Daniel also admits he doesn’t miss playing JK Rowling’s most famous creation at all.

Mother's Day Tribute: 20 (5) Best/Worst TV Moms From Revenge, Parenthood, Thrones and More

A mother’s job is never done, and this Mother’s Day, TVLine is putting 20 of today’s most dynamic TV moms under the microscope to see just how good a job they’re doing.

It’s an admittedly wide spectrum of women, from controlling mom-sters like Revenge‘s Victoria Grayson to walking love robots like Parenthood‘s Kristina Braverman — who we’d totally beg to adopt us if she was real, and if we weren’t over 18.

We’d also like to note the diversity in this year’s list, which — in addition to 14 mortal humans — boasts three witches, two cartoons and a werewolf. These ain’t your mama’s mamas.

Miley Advocates Date Rape at G-A-Y

Canary Yellow’s glue-sniffing hooker-looking country cousin Miley Cyrus is currently terrorizing London (cut to Baby Prince George giving “Ugh WHY?” face). On Friday night she performed a surprise show at Heaven’s G-A-Y and because Miley isn’t Miley unless she’s putting something gross in her mouth, she licked an giant inflatable penis that was floating around in the audience. And this possum-brained trick wonders why she’s always laid up in the hospital with 50-CCs of penicillin pumping directly into her bloodstream.
She also dedicated her show in honor of her friends’s 23rd birthday by letting this gem escape from her freon-filled thoughts:

"He’s straight but I said that for years too, and finally it gets easier. You know, everyone’s a little bit gay. Some of us just a little bit more than others. You know, it’s the truth. Everyone’s gay. All it takes is one cocktail. And if that doesn’t work, sprinkle something in their drink. That’s what I always do."

For those of you concerned Miley is advocating the use of roofies to turn someone gay, I don’t think that’s the “something” she’s alluding to. First off, Miley would never waste drugs on someone else, no matter what kind they are. Roofies, Viagra, Celebrex; a pill is a potential party and it’s going in her mouth. The only “something” she’s sprinkling in their drink is a mouthful of dried flakes that fall off her diseased tongue when she talks. I don’t know how that’s supposed to turn someone gay; maybe they’re hoping that a sip on Miley’s cooch will hold the antidote to the mouth disease they just drank?

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers' Show 'Dracula' Gets Cancelled By NBC

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers‘ NBC show Dracula has been cancelled after being on the air for only one season.

In case you missed the big, Hannibal and About a Boy have both been renewed after having decent seasons for NBC.


Season seven is officially Parks and Rec's last

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's official: NBC's Parks and Recreation's end is in sight.

The upcoming seventh season of the Amy Poehler comedy will be its last, NBC announced Saturday when the network released its 2014-15 schedule that featured the veteran comedy being benched for midseason. An exact episode count remains unclear.

"We have several of our strongest comedies by some of our best auspices being held for midseason, including the final season of Parks and Recreation," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in the release, which also announced the sixth and final season of drama Parenthood.


Jennifer Esposito Calls Ex-Husband BCoop A Master Manipulator

Jennifer Esposito is not mincing words in her description of her brief marriage to Bradley Cooper. In her new book, Jennifer’s Way, the former Blue Bloods co-star never mentions Cooper by name as she describes the mystery man as “funny, smart, cocky, arrogant and a master manipulator.” They quickly became a couple although the actress wrote that the boyfriend had a “mean, cold side” and “his personality could flip on a dime,” according to the New York Daily News.

Esposito, who suffers from celiac disease, describes the relationship as totally focused on her partner to the determent of her own health. “I became very sad and I felt very alone,” Esposito wrote. The relationship ended after Esposito attended a seminar at the Agape International Spiritual Center in L.A. “Within days, my relationship hit an all-time low, and within a week it was over,” she wrote. “Abruptly, rudely, and with the exact callousness that I’d come to expect from him.”

The timing of Esposito’s story directly coincides with the dates of her marriage to the American Hustle star, December 2006 to May 2007. Esposito was replaced in the role of Donnie Wahlberg‘s cop partner on Blue Bloods in 2012. When CBS issued a statement saying she was being suspended for missing work, Esposito went on a Twitter rant insisting she was only out because of her medical condition. She was ultimately replaced on the series and publicly said she couldn’t afford to sue.

Cooper is now dating model Suki Waterhouse.

Ceasar's Entertainment begs Britney to extend residency.

Looks like Britney Spears is never leaving Las Vegas.

The 32-year-old pop princess has been offered $12 million to extend her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood’s Axis theater, the Daily News has learned.

A senior executive at Caesars Entertainment confirmed that casino honchos want Spears to continue her Las Vegas show until at least Christmas 2016.

“Britney Spears has been a great success for the company and will be extended, if she wants to do it, and I cannot see why not,” Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner told The News during the Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit Master Series dinner with Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis.

“She has been filling out the place every night, and she is enjoying it and is in good health.”

Plus, Selesner added, Spears is living large in Sin City.

“She has a good life, coming in on private jet,” Selesner added.

“She has a villa upstairs at Caesars and really enjoys it here — so why wouldn't she stay?”

The eight-figure offer is all the more remarkable given that Spears lip-syncs her way through her 90-minute performances.

But her lack of singing hasn’t put off punters who shell out up to $300 to see the ex-teen idol shake her body.

Selesner admitted that his company took a “gamble” in inking Spears’ original deal — which runs until the end of 2015 and reportedly calls for the singer to earn $30 million over two years.

But the bet has paid off handsomely.

"You just didn't know what was going to happen,” Selesner told The News. “But the fans loved her. And she has so many fans from all over the world, that the support has been fantastic.”

Get that money!

The-Dream's Baby Mother Releases Photos Of Her Injuries...

She may have taken seven months to report her alleged attack, but The-Dream’s latest baby’s mother is providing some receipts.

TMZ obtained images of Lydia Nam’s injuries and they look pretty consistent with her claims that Dream choked and punched her while she was six months pregnant. The horrifying images show the visibly pregnant stylist with a large bruise on her left arm and scratches on her face and neck. Lydia claims the neck scratches were the result of the singer twisting the necklace she was wearing tightly around her neck. The images also show scratches and bruises on her wrists, knees and legs from when he allegedly dragged her by the hair.

The-Dream is still claiming his innocence.

"This little girl changed my world in more ways than I ever kould have imagined!" she wrote Sunday. "Being a mom is the most rewarding feeling in the world! Happy Mothers Day to all of the moms out there!"

Kanye West kontinued his tradition of lavishing Kim Kardashian with flowers, gifting her a garden wall made up of roses, hydrangeas and peonies for her first Mother's Day celebration since giving birth to their daughter Kompass last June.

Kardashian, 33, woke up to the surprise, she wrote on Instagram. "I have the best fiancé in the world! I love you so much baby!!!! #HappyMothersDay," she kaptioned a photo of the pink, green and white floral arrangement. West, 36, famously sent his bride-to-be 1,000 roses on Valentine's Day.

Teen Mom's Catelynn & Tyler Are Expecting

Last month Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra spoke to In Touch Weekly about their desire to have a baby. Well, it appears that their wishes have come true: according to several family members, Catelynn is already pregnant again!

Two different people related to Catelynn excitedly announced the big news on their private Facebook pages earlier today.

Hours later, Catelynn’s mother April revealed that she was going to be a grandmother again.

Jennifer Lawrence Almost Repeats Oscars Falls at X-Men Premiere


It's not easy walking in heels—just ask Jennifer Lawrence!

The 23-year-old actress almost repeated her back-to-back Oscars falls Saturday at the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere in New York City.

Jen, who looked flawless in a shimmering blue Jason Wu dress, couldn't hide her distress as she lost her balance walking up a set of stairs. Fortunately, two helpful assistants were within arms reach and helped steady J.Law and avoid another red (or in this case, black) carpet blunder!

Some have accused the Hunger Games: Mockingjay star of playing up her klutziness and faking these public pratfalls, but that's not the case! "I'm trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there's a traffic cone," she told Marie Claire's June issue about her last Academy Awards accident. "The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You're f--ked. They're totally going to think this is an act …'"

"But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs," she said. "I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland—I'm craftier than that!"

Shonda Rhimes sued for medical malpractice tvstyle

"Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes has fake doctors in her life, but now she's about to get close to real lawyers ... because she's being sued for allegedly ripping off a struggling writer.

Debra Feldman claims in her lawsuit ... Rhimes got hold of her manuscript, "The Red Tattoo," and used it as a template for her doomed series, "Off the Map" -- about U.S. doctors working in a remote South American village.

Feldman says no one on Rhimes team knew squat about medical treatment on a  third-world island, so she must have lifted it from "The Red Tattoo."

Shonda's rep tells TMZ, “It is our policy not to comment on frivolous claims”

LOST producers: Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse - Ten years later - Interview

Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are seated around the infamous hatch from Lost. The duo, who became the voice of the ABC series during its six-season run, have met up in Lindelof's office on the WBR lot in Burbank to reflect on Lost's cultural legacy exactly ten years after shooting the show's pilot. This particular hatch is made of papier-mâché and smaller than you might imagine because it was used for exterior shots during a later season of the show, but it's still indescribably thrilling to find yourself hanging out at the hatch with these two guys.

Lost premiered in September of 2004 and quickly spiraled into one of the most compelling, divisive shows on TV. Its unconventional, complexly wrought structure, enigmatic characters, and collection of perplexing mysteries became an immediate part of the cultural conversation, engaging fans in a truly obsessive way. It's arguable that no show since has generated such an extreme level of viewer involvement and debate that continues nearly four years after its finale aired. Lindelof and Cuse, who note that they hope to work together again in the future, remain as involved as the fans, and had some thoughts on why exactly Lost affected pop culture so deeply. Just don't ask them if you can take the hatch home with you.

Lindsay Lohan Swears She Had Miscarriage Under Oath in $5 Million Lawsuit

Lindsay Lohan has sworn under penalty of perjury she suffered a miscarriage...which means she better be telling the truth, or she could land in jail.

Lindsay made the declaration in new court docs in a $5 million lawsuit over her clothing line 6126.

You'll recall, Lindsay was given a reprieve from responding to the lawsuit while she was in rehab last year -- but even after getting out she failed to she lost the case.

Lindsay wants to undo the damage and she's using her miscarriage as an excuse.

In the new court docs, Lindsay writes, "I have been overwhelmed since leaving rehab and dealing with my sobriety and a miscarriage."

There's been tons of speculation that Lindsay made up the miscarriage story to garner buzz for her Oprah show -- or maybe just to get sympathy votes -- but these are legal documents...which means she's under oath.

If it comes out that Lindsay lied in the docs...under penalty of perjury...she could face jail time.

Nothing new (lol).

Fighting Patriot: Stunts and More in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

“I have a long-standing relationship with Marvel,” states Thomas Robinson Harper who was the stunt coordinator for Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014). “I did the first Iron Man [2008] and Iron Man 2 [2010], as well as re-shoots on Thor [2011]. I was asked by Louis D’Esposito [Avengers: Age of Ultron] to come in and meet with the Russo brothers [You, Me and Dupree]; we hit it off and the rest is history.” The previous experience with the world of Tony Stark came in handy when having to deal with the adventures of Steve Rogers. “Working on the first two Iron Man projects gave me an idea on what Marvel likes to see as far as action; I stepped it up from there.” Harper made “videovis” for every action scene which was presented to Anthony and Joe Russo. “They would give me an idea what they wanted and I would go shoot a test; we would meet again, take out what they didn’t like and add to what they did like.”

Live-Action "Akira" Fan Film Trailer Stays Close to the Source

We launched an Indiegogo campaign in July 2012 as part of a crowd sourcing effort to make this project come to life. Many people contributed not just financially but offered their time and talent to help the production that was shot in Montreal, Quebec from November 2-5th 2012.

Inside the head of Rupert Grint


What is your earliest memory?

My first birthday. I’m sitting in a pushchair, surrounded by lots of people. We’re at some kind of summer fête in a car park. I’m looking at a large birthday cake in the shape of a train and I’m watching my mum cut the first slice. I’m thinking, ‘Life is good.’

What sort of child were you?

I wouldn’t say I was a mischievous child but I was very manipulative, particularly with my younger brother. Apart from that I was quite a shy kid. I found my confidence in acting. Then, at the age of 11, I was cast as Ron Weasley, and my life completely changed. Suddenly I was doing what I loved for a living.

What are you best at?

Disguising myself. It comes in handy at music festivals. When I first started going to Glastonbury, I’d get people wanting to pick me up and carry me around on their shoulders, which got a bit tiring. Then I decided to start wearing animal masks while wandering around the site. Everyone looks a bit weird at festivals, so a man dressed as an alligator is not going to stand out.

What would you like to be better at?

I’ve always fancied myself as a singer but I know I’m not very good. I’m comfortable doing a Leo Sayer turn at karaoke. I do a passable You Make Me Feel Like Dancing. In the new Postman Pat film, I get to sing a song called Struck By Lightning, which is a bit of a toe-tapper. But, sadly, I’m no Sinatra.

Tell us a secret about yourself.

I like to carve sculptures out of crayons. I started doing it to pass the time on the set of the Harry Potter films. Throw an idea at me and I’ll turn it into a crayon sculpture – anything from a baby squirrel to Harvey Keitel’s head. My favourites are busts of Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln and Bill Murray. I’m about to do a Ronnie Corbett, which would require a smaller crayon.

Grandmother Of Baby Elton John Tried To Adopt In 2009 Pleads To Singer For Help

The grandmother of a little boy in Ukraine who Sir Elton John tried unsuccessfully to adopt has called on the singer for ‘any help’ he could give. Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish were captivated by little Lev Ageyev when they encountered him at an orphanage in 2009. But under Ukraine’s laws, gay men are banned from adopting and in any case Sir Elton, then aged 62, was considered too old. Sir Elton said at the time: ‘I would love to adopt him. He has stolen my heart.’

Lev’s grandmother Yulia, 61, has now rescued him from the orphanage. She said: ‘I have taken Lev out of the kindergarten until the trouble is over.’ She added: ‘I know he felt something for Lev. We’re worried what will happen so any help he could give us would be appreciated.’ She added: ‘Lev went away to a camp recently and ended up becoming the star. He told everyone that Elton John wanted to adopt him.’

After failing to adopt him, the couple publicly pledged to find him a home in his native country and send regular financial help. In 2011 Lev's grandmother said she had not heard anything for Sir Elton since his visit. She said the singer had also promised to help Lev’s HIV-positive brother, Artyom. Lev’s alcoholic mother Marina, who was also HIV positive, died of pneumonia in 2010.
