'Galavant' Star Vinnie Jones: 'I Wanted To Get Back To Comedy'

'Galavant' Star Vinnie Jones: 'I Wanted To Get Back To Comedy'
Hollywood audiences know Vinnie Jones for being the tough guy in films like X-Men: The Last Stand and The Condemned. So it's been a pleasant surprise to see him hamming it up as royal henchman Gareth on ABC's Galavant. And the role isn't as far afield for him as you might think.

"I wanted to get back to comedy," he told us in an interview on Friday. "I love comedy, I just love it, and I wanted to get back to it. I think that's what I'm best at [and] that's what I enjoy more."

Vinnie actually became a household name on the lighter side of film, when he was cast in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'
We kinda figured that this first post-midseason-finale episode of "Arrow" would be an intense one.

Oliver Queen did die, after all. That's cause for some intense emotions to bubble up to the surface of this already very emotional superhero show.

But by no means were we expecting that much emotion. "Left Behind" was like a superhero funeral dirge. The equivalent of a small mountain of superhero-strength Kleenex.

Some serious sad times.

Alright, enough moping around- let's get to this week's list.

10. Diggle is the New Arrow?

It sure seemed that way, didn't it. Crooks are doing crook-li...

Academy Awards Launches Trailer With Billy Crystal
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences seems to be excited to have Billy Crystal back as host for the 84th Academy Awards as they have launched a trailer in conjunction with Funny or Die.

Tough guy Vinnie Jones is embarrassed by what the star of his new TV drama "The Cape" drives to and from the set and only hopes the show becomes a big hit, so his pal can get a better vehicle.

Car fan Jones regularly taunts David Lyons about the battered black Wrangler Jeep he turns up to the set in, and thinks the star of the show should have a top-of-the-range vehicle.

Jones says, "It's ripped and it's dirty so I keep sort of letting him know by filling it up with the trash bins and putting signs on it saying, 'This car will be removed for safety reasons,' with cones around it.

After a successful stint on the punk rock scene as guitarist for the 80's cult British band Slaughter And The Dogs, Mick Rossi took a turn at acting. He eventually conceived the idea for a "guerilla" style crime caper, but knew he would need the right cast to pull it off.

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon)
If a man uses a gun for protection, you can make a fair assessment of his character. If you're the type of person who respects people for kicking asses and taking names with their bare hands, then check out's "Human Weapons" to discover the guys who are tougher than tough.

Jason Bourne — The Bourne Identity (Matt Damon)

Paul Rudd pretty much nailed it in the 40-Year-Old-Virgin: "I used to think Matt Damon was a Streisand, but he's rocking the s&*t in this one." Damon surprised everyone by turning in a neck-snapping performance that was a long way from Good Will Hunting. ...
