The Strangest Celebrity Couples

September 29th, 2013 12:07pm EDT
Carmen Electra and Simon Cowell
Love is blind, or so they say. Even in Hollywood, where image is everything, we've seen our share of odd pairs. Here are some of our favorite Strange Celebrity Couples, past and present:

Simon Cowell and Carmen Electra

A blinked-and-you-missed-it romance, these two dodged dating rumors after meeting on the set of Britain's Got Talent - but it was never confirmed they actually hooked up. However, those rumors came back with a vengeance thanks to Simon's scandal with Lauren Silverman - some reports even claimed the two of were broken up when she learned he was cheating on her with Silverman...

David Cross Again Slams 'Chipmunks' Film, Pelican Costume & Jewish Producer

January 11th, 2012 9:04am EST
David Cross
Funnyman/actor David Cross is refusing to stay silent about his miserable experience in a pelican costume for "Alvin & The Chipmunks" sequel "Chipwrecked" - he's taking aim at the producer who ruined a trip to London by insisting he had to be in all scenes featuring his character.

The "Arrested Development" star, who played a villainous music svengali in the first two Alvin films, opened up about his bust-up with an unnamed movie executive online just before the third movie came out in December - and now he's taking the matter further on chat shows.

David Cross Calls 'Chipmunks' Film 'A Really Awful, Unpleasant Experience'

December 16th, 2011 8:46am EST
David Cross
Funnyman David Cross wasn't smiling on the set of the latest "Alvin & The Chipmunks" sequel - he hated the experience and has vowed never to work with the brains behind the new family film again.

The "Arrested Development" star plays a cruise ship mascot who finds himself stranded on a desert island with the Chipmunks, the Chipettes and their handler Dave, played by Jason Lee.

And he admits the shoot was a miserable experience he hopes never to repeat.

Cross tells The Playlist, "It's safe to say I won't be working with some of those people ever again... Not the actors. And the director (...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly, I haven’t caught last week’s pick yet: “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” However I did have the misfortune of watching the David Gordon Green comedy “The Sitter,” which turned out to be a complete dud. If you haven’t already read my review, give it a look to find out why I think Jonah Hill deserves better.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Guy Ritchie sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” the Roman Polanski parental dramedy “Carnage,” the third Chipmunks adventure “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked,” and the Roger Corman themed documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a...

'Archer' 3.03 'Heart of Archness, Part 3' Review

September 30th, 2011 2:14am EDT
Archer
Sterling Archer's pirate saga concludes tonight, and that also means the end of our Archer fix until 2012. At least we have a great conclusion to hold us over.

Malory has realized that half the ISIS team has gone missing at the same time that Cyril discovers he must have drained the agency's accounts in his drunken rage. It's the makings of a very bad day - so unsurprisingly, it's the time when Archer has become a comedian, and not a very good one. He's still in the pirate dungeon, making jokes about (wait for it...) Dungeness crabs. He is useless to everyone trapped with him, but ...

'Archer' 3.02 'Heart of Archness, Part 2' Review

September 23rd, 2011 2:10am EDT
Archer
In case you missed it: Sterling Archer is the Pirate King. He's just not a very good one.

He's too busy being sloshed in bed with two women and, to use his own words, "covered in every bodily fluid there is." He hasn't read the orientation materials - in fact, he lit them on fire - and he's left the actual management up to Noah (David Cross), who informs him that karaoke night and intramural lacrosse don't keep unpaid pirates happy, and that he sucks at actual piracy.

Archer's total leadership fail causes the pirates to suggest a democratic election, challenge him to a fight, and fi...

Sterling Archer is back. Sort of. He's back on our TV, but he's gone into hiding like a sulking fourteen-year-old boy. Not that the title character of FX's Archer was ever known for his maturity.

It's been three months since his fiancee Katya was murdered by his arch-nemesis Barry ("Double Trouble"), and Archer's idea of mourning is to vanish to a tropical island, take up bartending, and bed newlyweds. His mother slash boss, Malory (the always perfect Jessica Walter) is distraught over her son's absence - except for the thirty seconds where she realizes that agent Rip Riley (Rules...

The Hangover Part II
Johnny Depp set sail again last week as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth entry in the series. After viewing the movie, I can honestly say that it’s not the best in the franchise, but certainly not the worst either. While nothing can really top the first one in my mind, this one gets back to the spirit of the original.

Captain Jack runs into an old love interest, Angelica (Penelope Cruz), who convinces him to join her on a quest for the Fountain of Youth. Sparrow unwittingly climbs aboard the vessel of Angelica’s father, Blackbeard (Ian M...

Megamind was only an infant when his parents loaded him into an emergency escape pod and jettisoned him into space just as their planet was being sucked into a black hole. His destination: planet Earth. Meanwhile, another slightly more wholesome baby sets out on the same trajectory.

'Megamind' Was More Challenging Than Tina Fey Or Will Ferrell Thought

November 7th, 2010 11:30am EST
Megamind
Tina Fey's action sequences in new animated movie Megamind were so demanding, the funny lady would "hyperventilate" in the recording booth.

The 30 Rock star provides the voice for news reporter Roxanne Ritchi in the new family comedy, and admits the recording process was much more of a challenge than she had anticipated.

She tells MTV.com, "Having to imagine that you're up on top of a building and falling off, and being caught and swept back up, and trying to imagine all that. I can say that every time we had to do that stuff, I would kind of hyperventilate and get a little lightheaded."

David Cross: 'Arrested Development Movie Will Never Happen'

April 9th, 2010 11:44am EDT
David Cross
Former Arrested Development star David Cross is adamant a planned movie adaptation of the TV show is "not going to happen" because "too much time" has passed since the series ended.

The cult TV sitcom was cancelled in 2006, and rumors of a film version were confirmed in January when actor Michael Cera said he had signed up, and his co-star Will Arnett revealed a script was close to completion with plans to shoot in 2010.

However, funnyman David Cross, who also appeared in the show, is convinced the movie plans will never come to fruition.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

June 15th, 2009 9:02am EDT
Year One
I finally got around to seeing "Terminator Salvation," and I must admit I wasn't terribly impressed. Overall the film was better than "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," but that doesn't say a whole lot because "T3" was pretty bad. Sam Worthington and Anton Yelchin were great, while Christian Bale gave an okay performance. I was expecting a more epic movie considering all its hype.

This week there are five films premiering: "Year One," "The Proposal," "Whatever Works," "Food Inc," and "Dead Snow." There are three I think are worth seeing, and two I think you should wait to rent.

Best Celebrity Voice Acting Roles

June 12th, 2009 9:22am EDT
Kung Fu Panda
Voice acting is a much more lucrative business than one might imagine, with the actors in question providing their voice for animated movies, video games, television shows, voice overs, and anything else that requires a voice but no face. Some actors do only that kind of work, giving themselves a certain amount of fame in that industry, such as "The Simpsons" cast.

Everything changed when voice acting became a business not only for unknowns, but also an attractive fad for celebrities who wanted to broaden their horizons ... or make a movie "for the kids." Now it seems that no animated...

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...

Most Underrated & Overrated HBO Shows

For the last two decades, HBO has been considered the gold standard for television quality. The network routinely receives more Emmy nominations than any of its competitors, despite fielding a drastically smaller roster of programming.

HBO practically reinvented what could be done on the small screen. Each episode now had the same production values as a feature film, and the way the pay network could deal with risqué content led to a wide array of groundbreaking programming.

A quick glance at the roster of original shows produced by HBO over its first 25 years is almost like look...

On his debut comedy album, Party, Nick Swardson claims that it's ironic that he's a comedian because off stage he's not a good story teller, but in this Starpulse Q and A he proves otherwise.

Swardson's career itself is an interesting tale. Performing improv at sixteen and then delving into standup several years later, Nick achieved the distinction of being the youngest comedian to have his own Comedy Central Presents.

One night, Adam Sandler saw the special and was so impressed by the performance that he phoned him the next day, leading to a partnership that allowed Nick to act...

Turning to friends in show business she was assured she was not alone. Once the subject had been broached, everyone she knew from her rabbi and gynecologists to her colleagues had advice and their own accounts of getting the boot to offer. This set her off on a journey to answer the question: was being fired going to be the best thing or worst thing that had happened in her working life.
