January 1st, 2014 11:00am EST
Leonardo DiCaprio
Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

It's that time of year for our annual "who is turning 40" this year extravaganza. Truth is, lots of people do, but we'll just keep it to the more famous variety of peeps in the world.

Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

For those of you who weren't around that year, the mantra of 74' and the world was energy crisis -gasoline was a little hard to get and lines at gas stations were blocks long. Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

Scrubs star Donald Faison sued by his agents

May 10th, 2013 10:40am EDT
Donald Faison
Scrubs star Donald Faison has been hit with a lawsuit from his agents who allege he owes them commission payments.

Executives at United Talent Agency claim to be responsible for landing the actor his most famous role as Turk on the medical sitcom, as well as negotiating his fee of $75,356 (£48,600) per episode.

But in a new lawsuit, UTA chiefs allege Faison stopped paying them their 10 per cent commission during the show's ninth and final season, which aired in 2010.

Their complaint, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, states, "Faison has not only turned his back on the people th...

TV on DVD: 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars III'

July 15th, 2011 3:09pm EDT
Robot Chicken
This week, Warner Home Video brings you the next installment in Robot Chicken's successful line of Star Wars parodies: Star Wars III. Join Emperor Palpatine as he narrates another volume in utter craziness across the galaxy. Here's my review.

The Show

I have to admit that before I saw Star Wars III, Robot Chicken had never interested me. The few minutes I saw of it on Adult Swim only confused me. Star Wars III, however, is hilarious. It's head and shoulders above Family Guy: It's A Trap! (which is funny considering that Seth Green was involved in both projects). Both are equally inappr...

'Scrubs': To Renew Or Not To Renew?

May 4th, 2009 12:03pm EDT
With news last week that ABC was considering carrying on Scrubs for a ninth season, the question buzzing around Hollywood was: Can Scrubs go on without J.D.?

The eighth season was supposed to be the last. After NBC decided not to renew the show last year, ABC, which had been producing the show since its premiere in 2001, took up the option to air the series, with the expectation that it would be the final season. Most of the main cast members have either stated that they wouldn't return for another season (Zach Braff, Judy Reyes) or have been cast in new television pilots (Donald...

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

May 4th, 2009 9:03am EDT
Star Trek
In the second week of our summer movie season, we have a lull in the number of films coming out. There are just three movies being released, and of those, two are premiering in mainstream theaters. Despite being a quiet week though, we have the release of "Star Trek," one of the most highly anticipated blockbusters of the summer, as well as "Next Day Air" and "Rudo y Cursi."


In this re-imagination of the "Star Trek" franchise, the story chronicles the early adventures of James T. Kirk, Spock, and the other characters aboard the USS Enterprise from the original series. ...

Mos Def
Mos Def banned the use of the 'N' word on the set of his new movie Next Day Air in a bid to urge his co-stars to use less controversial terms to "express" themselves.

The rapper/actor stars alongside Donald Faison, Mike Epps and Wood Harris in the funny crime caper, about a drug shipment which is delivered to the wrong address.

And Mos Def convinced his African-American co-stars to make sure language in the film and on the set was respectful at all times - by outlawing the racially-charged word.

Harris says, "It was something that was very important to us. It was our way of m...

'Scrubs' Is Back!

January 6th, 2009 10:02am EST
Last winter NBC announced that they would not be picking up Scrubs for an eighth season. When a bizarre fantasy world episode concluded the season that was shortened by the writers' strike, fans were left with a bad taste in their mouths. Could this really be the end of the fun dramedy that we had grown to love?

Slowly, the rumors began to circle that the actors had been asked to come back to work to make more episodes. Die-hards held out hope, and it became a reality when ABC announced that they would be airing a new season of Scrubs in January 2009. ABC Studios has actually...

Today's Top TV Duos

May 6th, 2008 8:37am EDT
The Office
What motivates audiences to watch TV shows? Why spend time on a series that will, in all likelihood, repeat storylines, invent contrived hook-ups and ultimately regress into something that challenges the viewer to wonder why he/she even began watching in the first place?

What's worse is that the viewers know this is going on. People sit in front of the boob tube every night knowing that Paula's going to say something stupid (scripted?) on "American Idol" and one of the "ER" doctors (models) is going to sleep with either another doctor (model) or endure an emotional breakdown due to a ...

15 Football Films Worth Watching

We Are Marshall
This is a bittersweet time of year for all football fans - the season is over, and the Super Bowl peaks over the horizon. Then comes the pain of football withdrawal. What will we do on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights? We've compiled a list of movies that we hope will ease the misery.

Some football films have rousing, rough-and-tumble-scream-at-the-TV football action. This is the "Football Factor." They're just like watching a game with two great defenses. Others have an interesting football story. This is the "Heart Factor." Often there are a lot of both factors in each movie. Her...
