The 10th Anniversary Of '24'

November 6th, 2011 3:17pm EST
24
How time flies: 10 years ago today, 24 premiered on FOX, and television - not to mention pop culture and the world - was never the same.

The action-drama series, created by La Femme Nikita bosses Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, and starring Kiefer Sutherland as now-famous government agent Jack Bauer, was a groundbreaking piece of entertainment. It introduced the idea of a television series in real time (each episode was an hour in a day) and employed a distinctive visual style that included the widespread use of "boxes" to provide simultaneous glimpses at multiple storylines. In concept ...

First Poster For 'Skyline'

Skyline
The guys over at ShockTillYouDrop.com debuted the first teaser poster for the upcoming alien invasion flick, 'Skyline'. When I saw the trailer that was debuted at Comic-Con I was immediately interested. I'm always in the mood for aliens and destruction.

The Strause brothers directed the film in which strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame. An extraterrestrial force then threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the earth. Mixing CG with live action, the movie promises plenty of action and destruction. T...

There's No Place Like 'Haven'

Haven-TV-63010-07.jpg
Initially, I didn’t like this show very much. Based on the story Colorado Kid by Stephen King, Syfy’s latest series follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose, a former cast member of ER and Brothers and Sisters, she also voiced Elena Fisher in the first Uncharted video game) as she moves into Haven, a mysterious small town in New England where quite a few people have abilities far beyond normal.

After tracking a fugitive to Haven, Parker decides to stay on and help the town deal with their unique problems while also investigating a woman who showed up there twenty years ago and bore more...

Separated At Birth? Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

August 1st, 2008 8:45am EDT
Idina Menzel & Penelope Cruz
Ever hear the theory that everyone has a twin? Some believe that each and every person has a double somewhere on Earth. Whether that theory is true is debatable. However, it's uncanny how some celebrities resemble each other. Sometimes it's an obvious trait: similar hairstyle, body type or facial features. Other times it's more subtle: similar roles or names.

Whatever the reason, the following stars have something about them that makes them look like another famous somebody. And that's not always a good thing.

1.) Perhaps it's the enormous beer gut that makes this trio seem r...
