EXCLUSIVE: 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Early Story Details REVEALED!'

With production currently at the halfway point on Avengers: Age Of Ultron, plot details are starting to slowly emerge.

Disney publicist Marshall Weinbaum has twelve outlets visiting the set in Shepperton Studios in England tomorrow for a set visit where journalists will get the first look at the interior of Avengers Tower (formerly known as Stark Tower), maybe some personal living quarters of the Avengers, and the inside hangar bay where the Quinjet is. Those pieces won't publish for another nine months but guess what? Our sources have already seen all that and reported back to me with HOTTER information you can read right below.


Although, I don't think the following report is a spoiler because most of what I have to say will be revealed throughout the marketing materials in the next couple of months. What transpires below is basically the first 15-20 minutes of the movie.

Steebie arrested again

Steven Jordan —- or maybe you know him as "Stevie J" — from reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, has been arrested for failing to pay more than $1 million in child support.

Jordan, 40, was arrested Monday night at his home in Atlanta. What's at issue: In 1999, according to an order from the New York County Family Court, Jordan was ordered to pay a minimum of $6,608 per month in child support for his two kids with music producer Carol Bennett. It was upped in 2011 to $8557 per month. His tab has grown to $1,107, 412.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara says in the arrest announcement that Jordan failed to pay while earning "substantial income from his participation in a reality television show." Specifically, Jordan was paid $27,000 per month starting in October 2012.

From January 2013 through August 2013, Jordan received at least $193,000 for his work on the reality television show. Nice money!

Jordan is charged with one count of failing to pay child support, which carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison.


Fashion Icon Carrie Underwood STUNS in New York City

Carrie Underwood never fails to surprise with her sexy red carpet fashion choices.

The 31-year-old singer drew attention her way once again as she arrived to the Samsung Hope For Children Gala in New York on Tuesday.

Carrie wore a dazzling strapless number that featured a monochromatic zigzag print, accentuated by a black panel at the waist.

The hemline was purposely asymmetrical, in sync with the dress' maze-like pattern, and showed off her slender limbs from the knees down to the T-strap, black heels.

Carrie, who has no qualms baring some skin, did some of that here too, as her tanned shoulders were exposed without showing too much cleavage.

A red patent leather clutch and sparkling long earrings gave Carrie's outfit a considerable edge

Legend of Korra Book 3 episodes have leaked online

Though details on the leak are still extremely murky, it appears that Nickelodeon’s affiliate in Mexico, MundoNick, accidentally released several early episodes some time on Saturday. The episodes of “Book 3: Change” are dubbed in Spanish, and were presumably not meant to be disseminated to the public until a much later date.

The news of the leak is rather ironic, given that co-creator Mike DiMartino only recently announced that all work had recently been completed on The Legend of Korra season 3. Otherwise, there is little news about when the highly-anticipated season will air (in a legal and legitimate fashion) on Nickelodeon.

Iggy Azalea on equalling The Beatles chart record: 'I'd rather be The Rolling Stones'


Iggy Azalea has responded to those who criticise her authenticity while also dismissing the way she recently matched a US chart record previously held by The Beatles.

The Australian artist has received repeated criticism of her Americanised rap voice in reviews but says that she does not feel the need to pay notice to her roots when making music.

"We get so caught up, especially in rap, with what's authentic, and I wish people would think more about what the fuck that even means," she told Billboard. "One critic was like, 'Why didn't you talk about more Australian things?' I don't understand why I'm supposed to write a song about living in the outback and riding a kangaroo to be authentic."

Elsewhere in the interview, Azalea says that the fact she recently matched The Beatles US chart record, scoring both the Number One and Number Two spots in the Billboard Hot 100, "doesn't mean anything". Distancing herself from the record, she said: "I'd rather be The Rolling Stones."

Kit Harington's Hair Has Its Own Contract on Game of Thrones

Fear not, Jon Snow fans, Kit Harington's luscious brown locks aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The Game of Thrones actor confessed that he's actually contractually obligated to keep its length.


"It has its own contract definitely," he said on Live with Kelly and Michael on Tuesday, June 10. "I never thought I'd say that about my own hair."

Whereas some actresses like Nashville's Hayden Panettiere wear a wig to maintain consistency while filming, Harington, 27, is stuck with his shoulder-length curls. "I'm just not allowed to cut it, and I didn't realize this until recently. I wanted to cut it. I've had long hair for ages and they were like, 'no, no, no, that won't be happening,'" he revealed.

As for his character's predicament on the season finale, airing June 15 on HBO at 9 p.m. ET, the How to Train Your Dragon 2 star is dubious of Jon Snow's plan to leave The Wall to have a powwow with his adversary, wilding leader Mance Rayder. "He's in a bit of a spot of bother, isn't he?" he said. "It's not a particularly good plan, really."

Harington otherwise remained tight-lipped about his character's fate, saying, "I don't want to tell you what happens because I may be out of a job now, so I'm not going to say a thing."

Spot the Dog creator Eric Hill dies aged 86

Eric Hill, the children's author who topped bestseller charts with his brightly-coloured picture books about the mischievous yellow puppy Spot, has died at the age of 86 at his home in California after a short illness.

Hill's publisher, Puffin, has confirmed the news, describing him as "a master of simple design. He created one of the world's most loveable children's book characters – Spot, the charming, naughty, playful puppy, loved and appreciated across the world".

Hill's family said: "Although this time of loss is a great hardship for us, we can honestly say that we take some solace in the joy he brought to so many children and families through his work. We know Spot, and therefore Eric, has had a beloved presence in so many homes and bedtime readings. And we know we share our grief with many."

Hill, who received an OBE for services to children's literature in the 2008 honours list, was encouraged to draw cartoons in his spare time when he worked as a messenger in an art studio as a teenager, going on to draw comic strips, and work as a designer, before he came up with his stories about a puppy for his young son.

Selena Gomez NOT battling Lupus!


In Touch claims Selena Gomez is in the midst of a “medical crisis” and “the fight of her life.”
According to the tabloid, the actress-singer is waging a “secret battle” against lupus, and her lifestyle “could mean the difference between life and death.”
In Touch reaches out to a number of doctors, none of whom have actually treated Gomez, who agree that “too much work, stress or partying could have serious consequences” for the performer.
Another source for the tabloid alleges that Gomez’s family “staged an intervention last spring… but it only pushed her deeper into the abyss during her medical crisis.”
Gomez made the “life-changing decision to clean up her act” in recent weeks, says the magazine, and “has recommitted herself to her physical and emotional health,” but adds that “loved ones still fear her cycle of bad decisions could start over again at any time.”
We’re not sure why In Touch has decided to go after Gomez in recent weeks, but the magazine’s track record speaks for itself.
In May alone, the tabloid printed a false story about the star kicking her parents from her home as “revenge,” misled readers with a completely bogus and disgusting “miscarriage” allegation, and wrongly claimed Gomez was becoming a “born-again virgin.”
The outlet has absolutely no idea what’s going on with Gomez, which is why we get stories like this one, in which the tabloid talks to doctors who don’t know her and makes wild assumptions based on whatever it can grab.
Gomez is not fighting for her life, and she’s not pushing herself to the brink with her lifestyle.
A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the In Touch report is “irresponsible and off base.”

#Ubifail No female lead in Assassin's Creed Unity is 'unfortunate but a reality of game development'

Female lead was planned, but canned as it would have doubled development efforts.

Ubisoft chose not to include playable female characters in Assassin's Creed Unity because it would have "doubled the work", Ubisoft technical director James Therien has told VideoGamer.com.

"It was on our feature list until not too long ago, but it's a question of focus and production," Therien explained. "So we wanted to make sure we had the best experience for the character. A female character means that you have to redo a lot of animation, a lot of costumes [inaudible]. It would have doubled the work on those things. And I mean it's something the team really wanted, but we had to make a decision... It's unfortunate, but it's a reality of game development."

Angelina Jolie Sparks Possible Maleficent Boycott in China After Controversial Comments


Angelina Jolie has found herself in a sticky situation after her latest comments during a press conference for Maleficent in Shanghai.

According to The Independent, the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador "became the subject of controversy in China, after she labelled film director Ang Lee Taiwanese, not Chinese, inadvertently embroiling herself in complex cross-Strait relations."

The Oscar winner was asked who her favorite Chinese director is, to which she replied, "I am not sure if you consider Ang Lee Chinese, he's Taiwanese, but he does many Chinese-language films with many Chinese artists and actors."

She added, "I think his works and the actors in his films are the ones I am most familiar with and very fond of."

Klinsmann: U.S. can't win World Cup

It is not realistic to expect the United States to win the World Cup, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann reiterated to reporters in Brazil on Wednesday, while adding that he no longer sees the Americans as overmatched.

"You have to be realistic. Every year we are getting stronger," said Klinsmann. "We don't look at ourselves as underdogs. We are not. We are going to take the game to Ghana and they will take it to us and it will be an exciting game and then we go from there.

"For us now talking about winning a World Cup, it is just not realistic. If it is American or not, you can correct me," he said, reiterating comments he made this past December to The New York Times Magazine.

The U.S. opens Monday with a 7 p.m. (6 p.m. ET) match against Ghana in Natal in Group G, which features Portugal and Germany.Collapse )

Only Lovers Left Alive: Jarmusch & Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Collaborate on Film-Inspired Fragrances

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is thrilled to present a series of scents based on Jim Jarmusch’s critically acclaimed film and soundtrack, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE.

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.

Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

Jim Jarmusch has long been considered a seminal figure in American independent cinema. His films are often noted for their transcendent minimalism and upturning of traditional genres such as the road movie, western, crime-film, and detective story. Born in Akron, Ohio, Jarmusch lives and works in New York.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Wynter Gordon Presents: The Righteous Young – ‘Everything Burns’

Wynter Gordon is a truly unique and creatively free artist. From being introduced to us years ago as a R&B/Pop writer turnt singer to commanding dance floors with EDM, and more recently releasing the very eclectic ‘Human Condition‘ project, the young talent has finally returned again, but this time, she’s not alone.

Now backed by a 5-piece band, the songbird is making a stylistic evolution with The Righteous Young, a project dreamt up entirely on her own.

Debuting her new venture with the single “Everything Burns,” Wynter and her mates deliver a soulful, acoustic folk sound. The song and its accompanying visual give an earthy, organic vibe. Directed and styled by the singer-songwriter herself, Wynter is seen frolicking in the forest, wearing a variety of chic flower-and-antler crowns in a mixture of grainy and artsy scenes.

“’Everything Burns’ is an open letter to all the leading men in my life, starting with my father,” says Gordon.

Check out the first look at Wynter’s new hippie movement below:

More AC: Unity info & various collectors editions

During the E3 night there’s always a good load of information and, in the chaos of the news, it is often possible to miss something. With this article we try to sort the post-conference out and gather all the news about what it seems to be a great game: Assassin's Creed Unity.

Inside the Convention Center in Los Angeles, last night four trailers were shown, two gameplay trailers (single player and co-op), one that introduced the character and the Cinematic Trailer. And it’s exactly with this last trailer that we want to introduce this article to make you immediately feel the atmosphere that will accompany us until the release.

The background music of the trailer is: "Everybody wants to Rule the World" by Lorde. You can listen to it here.

The setting represents the storming of the Bastille, the event marking the beginning of the French Revolution, allowing us, therefore, to set the trailer on July 14th, 1789. We also may be able to identify the victim of Arno (and of the French crowd), the person who that day commanded the Bastille garrison and was killed there, lynched by the crowd: Marquis Jacques Germain Soufflot.
The French garrison made the big mistake, indeed, of opening fire on the crowd. At the time the Bastille, in fact, wasn’t an important fortress; conversely it was almost completely demilitarised and abandoned and was used only as a depot and an armory. The crowd chose it for the supplies it had and to destroy the symbol of monarchic oppression.

This cinematic trailer surely satisfies the hype we accumulated during the last months, but the majority of information comes from the gameplay trailer and the character introduction.

The 29-year-old actress was joined by co-star Hannah New the morning after, presenting their show Black Sails during the 2014 Monte Carlo TV Festival at the Monte-Carlo Bay resort.

Black Sails is set in 1715, when the Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean is at its height and the former British colony of New Providence Island is now lawless territory controlled by the most notorious pirate captains in history. As the British Navy returns to these waters and the threat of extinction looms, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) finds an ally in Eleanor Guthrie (New), the daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who is looking to make a name for herself, and together they devise a plan to hunt the ultimate treasure and save their home.

The Khia to Azealia's Foxy releases an album

Early into the second song on Junglepussy’s excellent debut album Satisfaction Guaranteed, she raps, “How dope is this? Teach you how to grow and live.” The line—rapped quickly, with her rollicking flow, kind of like a slinky expanding and contracting with each breath—also works as Junglepussy’s motto. She’s here to please you, help you, teach you, and, most importantly, introduce you to her tropical lifestyle.

It took nearly two years since her first song, “Cream Team,” and even Erykah Badu asking for more, but the 22-year-old FIT student formerly known as Shayna McHale finally came through with a self-help album for the people. “I wasn’t like I want to make music so that I could be amazing and everybody would love me,” she said when we met yesterday afternoon for an interview. “People really wanted me to do it. The people were asking me to share my thoughts and views on things, and I can’t deny them of that.”

On Satisfaction Guaranteed, Junglepussy teaches you how to eat, date, text, and live the life of a take-no-shit power bitch, all over a set of lush, deep, and dark beats by Shy Guy and Mel Masters. Girls, take notes. Guys, try not to catch too many feelings. Everyone—put this on heavy rotations for maximum effect.

Mila Kunis Warns Future Fathers to Stop Saying "We Are Pregnant"

Mila Kunis has some sage advice for future fathers!

The "Third Person" star stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday, where she went on a rant about dads-to-be who use the word "we" to describe their baby mama's pregnancies.

"My wife and I are pregnant," Jimmy Kimmel said. "We are having a baby very soon as well."

"Oh, you both are having a baby? You and your wife are pregnant?" Mila asked, before removing her microphone and storming off to grab a hand-held mic.

"Hello, I'm Mila Kunis, with a very special message for all you soon-to-be fathers," the 30-year-old actress said. "Stop saying, 'We're pregnant.' You're not pregnant!"

"Do you have to squeeze a watermelon-sized person out of your lady-hole? No. Are you crying alone in your car listening to a stupid Bette Midler song? No. When you wake up and throw up, is it because you're nurturing a human life? No. It's because you had too many shots of tequila. Do you know how many shots of tequila we had? None. Because we can't have shots of tequila," she added. "We can't have anything because we've got your little love goblin growing inside of us. All you did was roll over and fall asleep."

Dave Chappelle Says He Never Quit His Show, He’s Just Seven Years Late For Work

Last night, Dave Chappelle returned to the late night stage for the first time in years to talk to David Letterman about quitting his Comedy Central show.

The comedian hosted the wildly popular sketch comedy program Chappelle’s Show on Comedy Central from 2003—2006. In 2006, Chappelle left the show and went on a spiritual retreat to South Africa. But on the Late Show he cleared some things up for the first time.

Chapelle said he was only in South Africa for two weeks, he never “really quit” Chappelle’s Show, and even though sometimes he wish he stayed on the show and took the money, he’s still doing okay.

In the full interview, Chappelle compared his departure from the show to “getting divorced in the ’50s.” “People didn’t go to divorce court,” he said. “They just look at their wife and were like, ‘I’m going to go get a pack of cigarettes. I’ll be right back.’ They just leave with the clothes on their back and make a go of it.”

He also said he has no regrets: “I made a series of decisions. … Look, Dave, it’s very hard to go through something like this because no one has really done it before. So there’s not too many people that don’t think I’m crazy.”

Oprah Winfey will Play Annie Lee Cooper in Ava DuVernay (And Brad Pitt's) 'Selma'

With principal photography underway, Ava DuVernay's "Selma" cast continues to expand - this time adding Oprah Winfrey (who's also a producer on the film by the way).

Ms Winfrey will play Annie Lee Cooper, a civil rights hero, who gained notoriety in 1965 for a confrontation with then Sheriff James G. Clark, outside the Dallas County (in Selma) courthouse, where she was attempting to register to vote. The 54-year-old Cooper was ordered to go home by the Sheriff; according to reports I read, she claimed that he poked her in the back of the neck with either a billy club or a cattle prod, which prompted her to turn around and deliver a solid right hook to the sheriff’s jaw, dropping him to the ground.

Deputies wrestled Cooper down on the ground, arrested her, charged her with assault, and attempted murder. Newspapers from the time said she was detained in jail for 11 hours. Sheriff’s deputies eventually released her because they were afraid Clark would come back in and beat her.

As she sat in jail, Martin Luther King Jr. made a historic speech in Brown Chapel. Here’s what he said about Cooper: “This is what happened today: Mrs. Cooper was down in that line, and they haven’t told the press the truth about it. Mrs. Cooper wouldn’t have turned around and hit Sheriff Clark just to be hitting. And of course, as you know, we teach a philosophy of not retaliating and not hitting back, but the truth of the situation is that Mrs. Cooper, if she did anything, was provoked by Sheriff Clark. At that moment, he was engaging in some very ugly business-as-usual action. This is what brought about that scene there.”

Cooper lived to see 100 years old. She passed away just 4 years ago actually, in 2010.

Known for... let's say individuality as far as her looks go and for acting in a number of both specialty movies and blockbuster mainstream flicks, Scottish actress Tilda Swinton was recently chosen for a rather special collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, concerning an international fashion campaign for spring/summer 2015.

The first result is a short art video in which the Oscar-winner is one of the two leading characters, with the other one being represented by a gorgeous Mercedes-Benz S 500 Coupe with the AMG bodykit.

OK, we are actually exaggerating about the S-Class Coupe, as the car is more of a supportive character in a very short film that may leave most “regular folks” a bit puzzled as far as its synopsis actually is.

With the rather surreal footage taken entirely in Tilda's home country, Scotland, the plot is certainly to stir your imagination in a number of ways. “Scotland is a timeless and a mysterious place. It represents my origin and was the perfect setting for the subtly intertwined story we are telling in this film. Working with Roe, with my old friend Haider and with Andre with his unerring eye was incredibly harmonious and inspiring. And driving through the wilderness in this fascinating coupé was a dreamy experience,” Tilda Swinton said after the filming took place.

'Veep' and other TV shows that outgrew their titles

One thing that makes television so great (and different from film) is the luxury of multiple years and seasons to explore different moments and experiences in a character’s life as they naturally progress. Because of that, TV shows frequently evolve drastically from their tidy season 1 concepts, which can make their original titles a bit confusing.

With some minor spoilers ahead, here are six TV shows that might have benefited from a name change during their runs:

When the HBO comedy premiered back in 2012, Veep was the perfect fit for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Vice President Selina Meyer dealing with a life in politics and the politics of life. The show is fictional, but Veep still follows the general rules of American government, so it was natural to assume that Selina would seek her boss’ job at some point, and season 3′s plot on the campaign trail foreshadowed such a change. Then came the two-part finale, when Selina was actually appointed president as the current commander in chief resigned to take care of his sick wife. Like another TV VP, House of Cards‘ Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), Selina becomes president without a single vote cast for her (which looked like the only way she was gonna become president anyway after losing primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire). But now that she’s not the Veep, should the show still have the same name? Alternative title: Peep

Why Anna Kendrick Is the Sexiest and Savviest Social Media Star of Her Generation

With a sharp sense of humor and serious smarts, Anna Kendrick has turned herself into the savviest social-media star of her generation and makes her ELLE cover debut for the magazine's first-ever Social Issue.

Now, with seven projects on the horizon (Happy Christmas is out this month), the acting, singing, joking sensation is about to go supernova. Kendrick garnered an Oscar nomination at 24 with Up in the Air. Her hit song "Cups," recorded for the Pitch Perfect soundtrack, spent 44 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100. Her Saturday Night Live debut this April—a barrage of musical skits—unleashed skill after seemingly limitless skill. But Kendrick also has found a way to meld the famous-person world with the one the rest of us live in, taking every opportunity to remind us—largely via social media—that she's still an occasionally weird and sometimes flawed human, not just a body hosting an increasingly desirable brand.

Tweet by tweet, joke by joke, Kendrick, now 28, has carved out a space in which to define herself. And the result is that despite living a life most of us can't relate to, she herself seems entirely relatable.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Together Again? Biebs Posts, Then Deletes "Unconditional Love" Photo

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are always doing this. No, really—always.

The up and down relationship status between these two pop stars is always changing, but they also always seem to give fans a hint as to where they stand through Instagram. So, it's no surprise that Bieber's latest post caused a frenzy with Jelena lovers.

Biebs reportedly posted (then deleted, of course) a black-and-white photo of his head being snuggled into Selena's arms. Although J.B.'s face is absent in the picture, it's clear that it's him because of his latest ink on his neck.

So are they back together? Have they rekindled their romance yet again? Is Bieber just going down memory lane? One source tells E! News that they aren't aware of Justin and Selena being back together, while Bieber's rep declined to comment on his client's personal life.

Or perhaps Justin is just drawing inspiration from his relationship experiences for a new track? Cody Simpson is currently collaborating with J.B. and tweeted, "chill studio session last night with @justinbieber. wrote a beautiful guitar track. able to relate when it comes to love & women. good sht!"

It seemed like Selena and Justin were donezo for good, especially since Biebs was spotted hanging out (and hooking up) with a lot of other females recently. Meanwhile, Gomez recently returned from a trip to Nepal, where she traveled to raise awareness for children in need, on behalf of UNICEF.


I don't even know what to say, tbh...

Exclusive: Robin Thicke Announces New Album ‘Paula’

Just how far will Robin Thicke go to win back Paula Patton? The “Blurred Lines” crooner is proving that his love has no limit by naming his upcoming album after his estranged wife.

Paula will be the title of Thicke’s seventh album, Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned. The follow-up to last year’s chart-topper Blurred Lines was written and produced entirely by Thicke and is set to arrive on July 1 via Star Trak/Interscope Records.

He debuted the first single, “Get Her Back,” at the Billboard Music Awards last month. The heartfelt tribute was written about Patton, his wife of nine years and the mother of his son Julian.

The high school sweethearts announced their split in February. Thicke has been trying for months to mend their relationship, even dedicating “Lost Without U” to Patton at his recent shows.

On June 29, the singer will perform some of his new material at the 2014 BET Awards in L.A.

Vincent D’Onofrio is Basically the Perfect Kingpin, and Here's Why

Vincent D’Onofrio is now the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Kingpin.

If you’ve read the comics, played the video games, or have a few latent memories of the last time Ben Affleck squeezed himself into spandex, you probably have some recognition of who the Kingpin is. And if not, here’s everything you need to know, crammed into two sentences.

01 kingy

Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin, or The Kingpin of Crime) first debuted in 1967, and quickly became one of the most popular villains in Marvel Comics. As the head of New York City’s criminal underbelly and a man as extremely wide as he is extremely tall, the Kingpin is a regular nemesis of The Punisher, Spider-Man and Daredevil.

Marvel’s really outdone themselves here, because D’Onofrio is pretty much the perfect Kingpin. Allow me to explain why:

Vincent D’Onofrio is a Great Big Man

02 big
(Also pictured: Tony Stark)

In Marvel Comics, the Kingpin possesses a physique that human beings simply cannot obtain. He can vary from a head taller to twice as tall as Spider-Man, and is roughly one Spider-Man wide. Yet the Kingpin is both morbidly obese and a perfect physical specimen, as evidenced by his multiple chins that counterbalance the bulging, veined muscles hidden within his XXXXXXL suits. If that guy exists in real life, he’s probably been taxidermied and assigned a spot in a Ripley’s somewhere.

Last time around, Daredevil went with Michael Clarke Duncan, who’s about as close to The Kingpin as a human could be. He had height and width, and could rock a circus tent-sized suit while still being super-ripped underneath. Sadly, Duncan had but one chin, but other than that, he was ideal and far and away the best part of the original Daredevil film.

D’Onofrio is just an inch shorter than Duncan — six foot four to Duncan’s six foot five — and while he’s not built like a 1970′s Arnold, he’s still a fairly wide fellow. And on a 6’4” frame, that’s about the best anyone can do.

Jaden and Willow Smith Named Vanity Fair’s ‘Next Wave’ of Stars

Jaden and Willow Smith are taking over Hollywood and the pages of Vanity Fair. The children of Will and Jada are among “The Next Wave” of up-and-coming stars featured in the magazine’s July issue.

They join 21 other young actors and actresses including Zoë Kravitz, Bella Thorne, Odeya Rush, Zoey Deutch, Jack Reynor, and Olivia Cooke.

Jaden and Willow, who reside with their parents in Calabasas, Calif., let the magazine into their world. Thirteen-year-old Willow reveals that her favorite shoes are Dr. Martens and her favorite movies to watch with her parents are feminist documentaries.

Meanwhile, her 16-year-old brother, who stars in the upcoming Karate Kid 2, enjoys watching Mr. Peabody & Sherman with his folks and prefers drop-crotch pants to jeans because the latter are “restricting to my legs.”

Marion Zimmer Bradley did not just protect her pedophile husband. She actually did it too.

A follow-up on TOR's cancellation of the Marion Zimmer Bradley tribute that was available on their website on the late author's birthday (tribute piece has since been removed), MZB's daughter with Walter Breen came forward about her mother molesting her from ages 3 through 12. Her e-mail reads:

Marion Zimmer Bradley's ex-husband was arrested for child molestation. Bradley was aware of his preferences and of what he did, and never did anything to alert the authorities. Breen died in prison on April 27, 1993 after having been sentenced to 10 years in jail after being charged with with eight felony counts of child molestation involving a 13-year-old boy.

I wish I could say I was shocked. But after learning that she knew what her husband did all along... My heart goes out to all who suffered at the hands of this couple.

Christian Bale as Lionel Messi, and 11 (4) Other Stars of the World Cup Movie

THR picks an all-star squad of Hollywood A-listers to play the midfielders, center backs and strikers in the big-screen version of this year's World Cup.

Lionel Messi and Christian Bale

The Argentine superstar is widely regarded as the best player in the world, if not of all time. Given Bale's obsessive method acting style, we're sure he'll lose the 5 inches of height needed to play the 5'7” striker.

Flashback: Shania Twain Wins CMA Entertainer of the Year

In 1999, Shania Twain was at the peak of her commercial success. Two years prior, she had released the blockbuster country album Come on Over, a record that would sell a staggering 40 million copies worldwide (by comparison, Taylor Swift's best-selling release so far, Fearless, has tallied a little less than 9 million). Featuring hits like "Man! I Feel Like a Woman," "You're Still the One" and "That Don't Impress Me Much," Come on Over became a genre-busting sensation, due in part to a re-released pop mix of the album. An accompanying tour further solidified her as country's most recognizable female superstar.

"The Interview" Trailer

In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

Anderson Cooper tries a schizophrenia simulator

Anderson takes part in an experiment to help understand how people live with mental illness

Mental illness often makes headlines after tragedies like last week's deadly shooting at Seattle Pacific University. A number of mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, can cause auditory hallucinations. It's important to know that only a tiny number of people who hear voices engage in violence of any kind. Anderson took part in an experiment to help people understand how others live with mental illness experience everyday. Anderson wore headphones that simulate hearing voices while trying to do everything from puzzles to simply interacting with people in the street.

Clinical psychologist Pat Deegan designed the experiment. She was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a teenager.

Cameron Monaghan Talks Jamming w/ T-Swift, Scaring Bella Thorne (Who?) & Filming Naked for a Month


If Cameron Monaghan isn't already on your radar, we've gotta warn you: It's going to be a serious challenge to go anywhere without seeing him pretty soon. The 20-year-old, redheaded cutie is already known for playing Ian Gallagher on the TV series Shameless, and it won't be long until he's rocking an even bigger screen with his starring role in The Giver when it hits theaters this August. If you can't tell, we're basically counting down the days.

In the Lois Lowry classic we all came to know and love from our middle school reading lists, Cameron plays Asher, who's Brenton Thwaites's character Jonas's funny and super relatable best friend. "Asher is a little bit of an odd man out in his society," Cameron says of his role. "He's this kid who's a little bit of a jokester—he doesn't fit in with the rigid, strict constraints of the society around him." Even though his character isn't necessarily one who abides by the rules 24/7, things start to change once Jonas starts rebelling against the system they've lived their entire lives obeying. "He becomes at odds with what's morally right. He doesn't know whether he should be part of his society or go along with what Jonas is saying."

J.K. Rowling calls Scottish independence efforts 'Death Eaterish'

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling waded into the world of Muggle politics Wednesday, announcing a 1 million pound ($1.68 million) donation to the campaign against Scottish independence.

Rowling predicted that some pro-independence campaigners would discount her views because she was born and raised in England. She likened that stance to the obsession with pure wizard blood of the villainous characters in her magical saga.

"When people try to make this debate about the purity of your lineage, things start getting a little Death Eaterish for my taste," she wrote.
