Grimes refuses to back out of Russian gig

October 30th, 2013 9:30pm EDT
Grimes
Canadian singer/songwriter Grimes has defended her decision to go ahead with a planned Russian gig next month (Nov13), insisting she cannot ignore her persecuted gay fans there.

Officials at human rights groups have urged entertainers to boycott Russia after lawmakers recently passed federal legislation which bans the "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relationships to minors" and effectively puts visiting performers on alert that they could be arrested for making any homosexual reference during a show.

Miller, 41, discussed how he tried to hide his homosexuality when he was a young man and how it led him to a very dark place.

The Morning Roundup: Dr. Phil's Drunk Sex Tweet Blows Up The Internet

August 22nd, 2013 10:17am EDT
Dr. Phil
Dr. Phil asked a simple question via twitter on Tuesday as a discussion-starter for a future topic on his show and because of the way it was worded the world flipped out. The tweet, which read, "If a girl is drunk, is it ok to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil #teensaccused," went viral despite being removed shortly after, and people are now calling for the TV psych's bald head on a platter. Many consider the tweet insensitive to rape and sexual assault. A petition started on Change.org is demanding an apology, even though a rep for his show did apologize for the tweet, which wa...

Wentworth Miller
Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has come out as a gay man via a letter to a Russian film festival director.

The actor was recently invited to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, but declined the invitation because of Russia's highly-criticized anti-gay laws.

The 41-year-old wrote an open letter to festival director Maria Averbakh, saying he'd love to attend, but because of the way gays are treated there he has no future plans to travel there.

Colin Firth Lands 'Stoker' Role

Colin Firth
British actor Colin Firth is set to sink his teeth into a vampire role in his first film since winning an Oscar last month.

The star has signed on to play a bloodsucker in the movie Stoker, alongside Nicole Kidman and Alice in Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska, according to Britain's The Daily Mail.

The new role is remarkably different from the actor's most recent performance in The King's Speech, in which he played stuttering royal King George VI.

Screenwriter Wentworth Miller reveals the title of the movie is a nod to Bram Stoker's film Dracula.

He says, "It's got a lot of element...

Spartacus Blood and Sand
Aussie actor Liam Mcintyre has been picked to replace cancer-stricken Andy Whitfield as the new TV "Spartacus."

Whitfield was forced to quit the sequel to the hit series "Spartacus: Blood & Sand" in September after learning his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma had returned - just months after doctors gave him the all-clear in June.

TV executives initially considered calling off the show due to Whitfield's health setback, but then decided to recast the lead role of gladiator slave Spartacus.

"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller was an early choice but now McIntyre has been announced as the new lead...

Jennifer Aniston was a part of one of the hottest Hollywood couples of all time. Her relationship with Brad Pitt was The Hottest Hollywood relationship in the 90s and it looked to be a rare Hollywood couple success story.

Conflicting reports say Brad ended it with Jen because he wanted kids and leave it up to Jen to ruin a something good. She filed for divorce in 2005 and since then she has run into some bad luck with men.

She may call it bad luck but I call it dating douche bags.

Mama Scofield Enters The Picture On 'Prison Break'

December 23rd, 2008 10:58am EST
Prison Break
It's fall finale time on "Prison Break," folks. Thus far, the season has been chock full of revelations, lies, betrayals, plot twists (both conceivable and far out) and of course, deaths. Plenty of deaths. Did the body count continue to climb in this final episode of 2008? Have we been provided with some answers, or just more questions? Most importantly, has T-Bag's facial hair changed for the third episode in a row?

Lincoln in Charge (of our days, and our nights)

Having been given his mission to reclaim Scylla by The General (Leon Russom), Lincoln finds himself in charge of ...

Spiritual Visions And Company Men On 'Prison Break'

As we head towards the fall finale, things on "Prison Break" continue to heat up. Allegiances may have shifted (again), but Scylla remains the focus of nearly everyone's attention. When last we left our old friends, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had been taken in by The Company, and The General (Leon Russom) had struck a "bargain" (word of the day, right Pee-Wee?) with Lincoln (Dominic Purcell). The deal? If Lincoln and his friends are able to successfully return Scylla to The General, Big G will remove that nasty tumor from Michael's brain. Seems reasonable, right? Let's see if everyone...

The Chaos Continues On 'Prison Break'

December 9th, 2008 10:54am EST
Prison Break
Say what you will about "Prison Break," but if there is one thing that it has not been these past few weeks, it's predictable. While the series has always been prone to wild plot twists, quadruple-crosses and plenty of violence, things have really elevated to another level ever since the gang got the best of The General (Leon Russom) a few episodes ago.

Word of the Day: Gas

Things pick up right where they left off last week, with Self (Michael Rapaport) needing a final chip for Scylla, a chip that Michael (Wentworth Miller) possesses. Last week Michael invited Self to "come and...

Just Like The Good Old Days On 'Prison Break'

December 2nd, 2008 11:01am EST
Prison Break
Last night's episode of "Prison Break" was probably the most reminiscent of season 2's unpredictability and general awesomeness that we have seen all year. Folks, that says a lot. Self's betrayal has shaken things up in a major way, altering the relationships of most of the characters and institutions that we have come to know and love (or hate). Throw in a few double-crosses and a few more deaths, and we've got one heck of an episode.

Michael Rapaport, how could you?

The gang still can't believe that they were set up by agent Don Self (Michael Rapaport). While the rest of the...

It's Plot Twists A Go-Go On 'Prison Break'

Prison Break
When we left off last week, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had finally gotten his hands on Scylla but ended up tripping a silent alarm in the process. As he sat the staring at the machine in awe, The General (Leon Russom) was making his way down with several armed men in tow. So how did Michael work his way out of that one? There's that and so much more today, on "Prison Break: The Recap!" Roll Credits.

Questionable Decisions Abound On 'Prison Break'

Things are starting to heat up on "Prison Break" as the ol' gang inches closer towards uncovering the secrets of Scylla. The double crosses will continue to pile up, and in true "Prison Break" fashion, the body count probably will as well. Before all that though, there is a matter of drilling. Lots more drilling.

Where is Tom Cruise when you need him?

Michael (Wentworth Miller) needs surgery (remember that massive tumor that he has growing on that freakishly genius brain of his?) and he is refusing to get it. Mahone (William Fichtner) tries to convince him to go get the tumor ...

One Step Closer To Scylla On 'Prison Break'

With Termie out of the picture and The General thinking that everyone is dead, the gang on Prison Break has a little window in which to find Scylla before it is moved. Will they take advantage of this opportunity? Or will Bellick's death be in vain?

Mourning

Everyone is in a very somber mood after Bellick's sacrifice. It is kind of hard to believe that the level of grief the gang is feeling over Bellick's death is so high, as until quite recently he was despised by pretty much all of the major characters. Then again, these guys (and gal) have been through quite a lot together...

A Long Expected Betrayal On 'Prison Break'

This week on "Prison Break," the gang finally was subject to a long-expected (at least by viewers) betrayal by computer wunderkind/all around dirtbag Roland. While this plot development was hardly a twist, there were enough interesting tidbits, plot developments and action to keep things rolling and provide us loyal viewers with another exciting installment.

Those were the days…

We start off this week with an exciting flashback from Lincoln's past, back in his days of depravity. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and his companion have a job to do, and it involves brute force (hence why ...

This Week on 'Prison Break:' Blood Feuds, Indecent Proposals... and Vegas!

October 7th, 2008 12:16pm EDT
Prison Break
The best season of "Prison Break" thus far was season 2. Sure, purists had a problem with it ("they're no longer in prison!); but as far as unpredictability, craziness, and sheer fun are concerned, it was unmatched. Well, that might all be about to change. Season 4 might have started off a little unevenly, but if the past few episodes are any indication, the journey to the season (and perhaps series) finale is going to be quite a trip.

Not So Strange Bedfellows

We left off last week with T-Bag (Robert Knepper), having just fled from a suspicious associate at Gate, frantically r...
