Short List Of Replacements For Charlie Hunnam In 'Fifty Shades' Includes Francois Arnaud And Jamie Dornan

October 17th, 2013 10:57pm EDT
Charlie Hunnam
With Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam out of Fifty Shades of Grey, numerous names have come up as possible replacements to play the dominant and sadistic Christian Grey.

Hunnam pulled out of the role just weeks before the planned start of filming, with reps for Universal Pictures releasing a statement that he quit because his "intense television schedule" conflicted with his preparations for the project.

Insiders have claimed that an unknown star would be cast into the role to avoid any fallout, but several other names have been tied to the part.

First up is Aaron Taylor-Johnson. John...

October 17th, 2013 12:09pm EDT
White Collar
The tables have turned in the new season of USA's White Collar. FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) finds himself in prison while ex-con Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) strives to clear his name, after Neal's own father left them both hanging. BFTV recently connected with Tim and Matt for a chat in which they talked to us about how things have changed and the many characters who will come into play during Season 5.

In a key scene from tonight's premiere episode, "At What Price," Peter and Neal have a conversation in which Peter basically admits that he is no longer objective when it comes to his o...

Hottest Guys of 2012
Who are the sexiest guys in music, film and television? We narrowed our picks down to 50 in our annual list, spotlighting those who made our hearts skip a beat when we watched them perform.

Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey bared quite a bit in "Magic Mike," while "The Avengers" actors got our blood flowing with their explosive action scenes.

We lusted after Chris Hemsworth in "Snow White And The Huntsmans" and felt a little bit giddy when rumors swirled that Justin Bieber broke up with Selena Gomez (he didn't.)

British imports The Wanted and One Direction also caught our fancy, as ...

Gotye Insists His 'Glee' Remarks Were Misunderstood

April 24th, 2012 2:22pm EDT
Gotye
Australian pop sensation Gotye has clarified critical remarks he made about the cover of his hit song Somebody That I Used To Know on TV show Glee, insisting his comments were taken out of context.

The chart-topping track was given the Glee treatment by actors Darren Criss and Matt Bomer during a recent episode of the hit TV musical series, but reports suggested the singer, real name Wouter De Backer, was left unimpressed by their efforts.

In a recent interview with Australia's The Sunday Mail, he was quoted as saying, "They did such a faithful arrangement of the instruments but the voc...

Singer Gotye Calls 'Glee' Cover Of His Song 'Dinky And Wrong'

April 23rd, 2012 11:34am EDT
Gotye
Australian music sensation Gotye has taken a swipe at Glee's version of his huge hit Somebody That I Used To Know, insisting the cast's rendition sounds "dinky and wrong."

The pop star, real name Wouter De Backer, became the first Aussie act to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100 since Savage Garden hit Number One with I Knew I Loved You in 2000.

His rise to the top of the charts was helped by a Glee cover of the song, performed by Darren Criss and Matt Bomer on the hit TV musical series earlier this month.

Nevertheless, despite their version giving his track a boost Stateside, Goty...

April 19th, 2012 9:35am EDT
Glee cast
The "Glee" cast has scored its 200th hit in the pop charts. The TV stars have managed the feat in a little under three years.

The first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 came in June 2009, when "Glee's" rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" shot into the top 10.

Darren Criss and Matt Bomer's revamp of Gotye's current U.S. number one "Somebody That I Used to Know" debuts at 26 on the new countdown, giving the show its 200th hit.

The 10 Television Characters I Still Miss

March 28th, 2012 8:00am EDT
Line of Fire
There are lots of TV shows I miss. But then there are the characters: individual performances so good they came alive, and I still wonder about them. It's one thing to mourn a show for awhile, another to ask yourself years later, "Whatever happened to...?" as if that person was real.

Here are ten TV characters that I still think about, in (almost) chronological order of their departures.

1. Jennifer Sampson in Line of Fire, as played by Julie Ann Emery (2003)

I'm putting this one first because this is the character that gave me the idea for this piece. Sometimes I feel like I was the o...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Judgment Day' (3.16)

White Collar
Can you believe it's the White Collar third-season finale already? And are you ready for the answer as to whether or not Neal will be a free man? Well, here we go...

While we open with Neal getting the particulars on the commutation hearing process in a room with no decor (because all important hearings on TV seem to happen in big, open rooms with no decor and are run by unlikable, interchangeable bureaucrats), Peter is stunned to hear that his pal Kramer (Beau Bridges) doesn't just have his sights set on luring Diana to Washington. He wants Neal there, too. Here I think, "Dude, ge...

Matthew Bomer 'Comes Out' At Awards Show

Matthew Bomer
Actor Matthew Bomer has 'come out' as a gay man after publicly thanking his partner and their family while accepting an award for his HIV/AIDS activism over the weekend.

The In Time star, 34, was accepting the New Generation Arts and Activism honor at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in Palm Springs, California when he acknowledged his publicist boyfriend, Simon Halls, and his three children as his "proudest accomplishment."

He told the audience, "I like to give a special shout out to my table... and I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry - ...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Pulling Strings' (3.14)

February 7th, 2012 11:04pm EST
White Collar
This week's White Collar brings back some absent characters, introduces some new ones, and mixes them together to create a lackluster outing.

Elizabeth's birthday is coming up, and Peter wants the weekend off "unless someone dies or Neal does something big. Maybe not even if someone dies." He's leaving Diana in charge, even as Diana reveals that she's engaged to her girlfriend Christie. Sounds like everything is going grand, right? Well, until we start talking about a stolen Stradivarius violin...and Neal's now ex-girlfriend Sara Ellis, who thinks her boss Bryan (Bailey Chase) is t...

'Suits' Star Patrick J. Adams Joins USA's 'Characters Unite Month'

Suits
Suits star Patrick J. Adams is among the many USA Network faces making statements to address social issues and cultural divides for the network's second 'Characters Unite Month' in February.

The SAG Award nominee is adding his voice to help stop bullying, something he experienced as a teenager for his interest in theater.

"When you're the guy doing the school plays, that's not necessarily as cool as some of the other people," he said in an interview. "I got bullied a ton. I got pushed around a lot. [But] by the end of high school, the same guy who was beating me up in the ninth grade and...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Neighborhood Watch' (3.13)

January 31st, 2012 11:02pm EST
White Collar
This just isn't Elizabeth Burke's season.

This week's White Collar has Mrs. Suit overhearing plans for a robbery thanks to a scanner Peter left at home. When nothing materializes, Peter and Neal are skeptical, but (of course) Mozzie is more receptive. He and Elizabeth monitor the scanner until they hear the same voices again...right across the street from the Burke home. The new neighbors are Ben (Matt Bomer's Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello) and Rebecca Ryan (former Criminal Minds star Lola Glaudini).

Elizabeth coerces Rebecca into inviting her and Peter over for dinner. Plus, ...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Upper West Side Story' (3.12)

White Collar
Oh, White Collar. I love you for your ridiculous charm.

The case of the week sees Neal and Peter approached about potential embezzlement at upper-crust Manhattan Prep. The lead suspect is Andy Woods (Dylan Baker, who's played a bad guy so often we should just assume he's the villain every time he shows up), who's in charge of the school's endowment and may have cartel ties. To check him out, our dynamic duo goes undercover, which leads to plenty of entertaining shenanigans.

Just minutes after their arrival, Neal gets mistaken for a substitute teacher, but rolls with it when he s...

Q&A: 'White Collar' Star Tim DeKay

January 24th, 2012 1:00pm EST
Tim DeKay
There's a whole White Collar promo about Matt Bomer. But it would be criminal to overlook his co-star Tim DeKay, who's equally brilliant and just as important to the show's success.

His character, Special Agent Peter Burke, couldn't be more solid. Peter has a successful job at the FBI and a stable marriage to Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen). The role is a perfect fit for Tim, who's just as reliable as his character. He's got a long list of TV credits to his name, including a recent guest appearance on NBC's Chuck, being one of the good things about Law & Order: Los Angeles, and he'll always...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Checkmate' (3.11)

White Collar is back, and we answer the question: where is Elizabeth Burke?

"Checkmate" picks up immediately from the midseason finale, with Mrs. Burke in the hands of now very familiar bad guy Matthew Keller (Ross McCall), who wants to exchange her for the hidden treasure. "You could've walked away," Peter tells Neal angrily, and a recalcitrant Neal admits that "I should be paying for it, not Elizabeth."

Yet when Neal brings Peter to the warehouse where the treasure was, he finds that Mozzie has moved all of it on his own. This means that in order to find Elizabeth, our dynamic d...

Two Jews' Review 'In Time' - Both Agree This Sci-Fi Thriller Is A Waste Of Time (Video)

October 28th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
In Time
Two Jews On Flim - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: 'In Time' is a Sci-Fi thriller written, directed and produced by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca), maybe that's the problem. You know what they say about wearing too many hats.

Okay, when the film begins, we discover that we are now in the future....A future where you stop aging at 25 (guess that would put a big dent in the Botox industry). Your mother, sister, grandmother, grandfather etc, all look 25 so it's hard to tell if you're hitting on someone's mother or daughter. You get the idea.

After 25, you get one free year to live. After that, you have t...

Joe Manganiello will be dropping his drawers for his role in Magic Mike. We need a cold shower.

Get ready, ladies: Joe Manganiello admitted that he’s going be baring it all for his upcoming role in Magic Mike.

"It's not that different from what I do on set on True Blood," Manganiello told the Huffington Post. "I wonder if some of the other guys have done it before -- taken their clothes off on camera.

"For me, it's just a typical day at the office," he added. Uh, does this office have any openings right now? We’d like to apply.

Matt Bomer Takes It All Off For 'Magic Mike'

August 18th, 2011 7:55am EDT

Things are definitely getting hotter on the set of "Magic Mike."

Hot on the heels of word that Matthew McConaughey has joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh's new film about the fine art of male stripping comes news that Matt Bomer is now part of the lineup, according to Deadline.

The "White Collar" criminal will be joining Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer as one of the exotic dancers who works at Xquisite, the adult entertainment venue owned by McConaughey's character.

"Magic Mike" is described as a "Saturday Night Fever" type of tale in which a veteran stripper (Tatum) teaches his youn...

'White Collar' 3.06 'Scott Free' Review

July 12th, 2011 10:03pm EDT
White Collar
Deja vu is the theme of this week's White Collar, and it works - though perhaps not as well as it could have.

When the FBI starts tracking another wily con artist, Scott Rivers (Hutch Dano), everything feels a little familiar - but that's the point. For the characters, and for the audience, it's impossible not to hold the mirror up and draw parallels between Scott's present and Neal's past. Things get complicated when there's an attempt on Scott's life early on, making him equal parts criminal and victim. It's a great concept for an episode, one rife with opportunities for characte...

Hello again, White Collar! Apologies for cheating on you with The Voice, but I'm back now and I'm glad to see you haven't missed me too much. "Veiled Threat" isn't the best episode, but it has glimmers of greatness inside of it.

This week's premise is rife with possibilities: Neal, Peter and Jones go undercover at a bachelor auction to lure in a suspected "black widow" named Selena (played by Madchen Amick, who will always be the spouse from Viva Laughlin to me). While this makes Sara bring up that she and Neal have never been on a "real date," Elizabeth is more amused and tries ...

TV On DVD: 'White Collar: Season Two'

White Collar
With White Collar premiering its third season last Tuesday, Fox Home Entertainment released White Collar: Season Two on DVD on the same date. Here's my review.

The Show

I fell in love with White Collar almost right out of the gate. Ever since I saw Matt Bomer in ABC's Traveler, I knew he was going to be a star someday, and the show found a perfect match for him in veteran actor Tim DeKay. There was smart writing that balanced a case of the week with character development and an ongoing mythology, moving along each in equal measures. Great acting serviced well by strong writing - we...

'White Collar' 3.01 'On Guard' Review

June 7th, 2011 10:10pm EDT
White Collar
White Collar was a favorite of mine in its first season and parts of the second, but I have to admit that by the end of season two, the shine had started to come off the show for me. As a result, I became very interested in what season three would be - would the show win me back or would we break up?

The third-season premiere starts off in an awkward but not entirely unexpected place, with Neal and Mozzie trying to make a quick escape from Peter and Diana. Four days earlier, Neal's being polygraphed regarding the events of the second-season finale. (I've been polygraphed; this is...

White Collar's second-season finale has everything but the kitchen sink: the return of several prominent guest characters, including the villainous Vincent Adler. His takedown was certainly rewarding, but did it live up to the hype? That depends on how you look at it.

Peter and Neal are strolling through New York, with Neal carrying a box full of fake Rolexes, on their way to the FBI office. Sara is there waiting for them, claiming she's found something big in the ocean - but first, we have to have the obligatory awkward moment between the two of them since they were locking lips a...

It's Valentine's Day, and that means love is in the air (for some of us, anyway). It's also a perfect time to pay tribute to the fictional men who've made my heart melt this TV season, for one reason or another, or oftentimes several. These are ten guys who, if they were real, would have no problem getting my phone number.

Warning: there are spoilers for certain series. Each show is listed in each character's heading. If you're waiting for the DVD's, I'd advise skipping those particular sections.

White Collar
It's a busy day for Neal Caffrey. First, he meets with Mozzie to check on the progress of their fractal antenna. Mozzie says using the phrase "good work" implies he has a job. I start laughing, and I'm still snickering by the time Neal returns back home, looking for June, and walks into Ford (Billy Dee Williams), an "old friend" of hers who's just moved back to Manhattan. He is naturally suspicious (oh, Matt Bomer, how I love you and your facial expressions) and starts asking questions, having no idea that when he uses the phrase "partners in crime," he's totally right. Worried, he ...

The woman behind Mrs. Burke, actress Tiffani Thiessen, sat down with me before tonight's new episode of White Collar to talk about the perks and positives of playing one of the show's versatile and vibrant supporting characters.

I have to say, I've looked forward to talking to you because I've enjoyed your character so much. She is so well-developed and so not what one would expect in her role.

In the twentysome-odd years I’ve...
