Grassroots Campaign Wants 'Psych' Stars On 'SNL'

October 27th, 2010 10:35am EDT
Psych
If one show has impassioned, loyal fans to be reckoned with, it's "Psych."

They call themselves "Psych-Os," and in just a couple of weeks, nearly 30,000 of them have united in an online effort to nab leads James Roday and Dulé Hill a dual hosting gig on NBC's long-running, live sketch show.

The grassroots campaign appeared about a week before the official "Psych" Facebook page cracked the 1 million member milestone on October 20. Dubbed "Psych Out SNL," the movement's own Facebook group states that the writers of USA's quirkily funny police procedural have given the undertaking their o...

Some Think 'Sesame Street' Twitter Post Had Gay Reference

October 26th, 2010 1:00pm EDT
Sesame Street
Back in June, Bert from the popular Sesame Street duo Bert and Ernie posted a seemingly-innocent entry on Twitter: "Bert: Ever notice how similar my hair is to Mr. T’s? The only difference is mine is a little more ‘mo,’ a little less ‘hawk.’"

"Mo" is considered slang for male homosexual within the gay community, and the post was made during Pride Month (as well as the release of The A-Team movie). Gay bloggers rejoiced that Bert was coming out of the closet, and once again the relationship between Bert and Ernie - who live and sleep in the same room - was called into question.

Here is th...

Hilary Duff's Tiny Green Dress & Sexy Chains

August 9th, 2010 11:27pm EDT
Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff showed up to the 2010 Teen Choice Awards a bit out of character - she wore a skin-tight green mini-dress instead of the usual modest dresses we often see her wearing to these events. How do you think Hilary looks showing some skin for a change? And what's with all the chains - is she into bondage or something?

Hilary was the winner of the night's Choice TV: Female Scene Stealer award for her guest starring run on "Gossip Girl."

The star recently purchased a new $3.85 million Hollywood home with her fiance, NHL hockey player Mike Comrie.

The pair are set to wed later this mont...

Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson: 'I Make More Money Fighting'

July 29th, 2010 11:00am EDT
Quinton Rampage Jackson
The A-Team star Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson doubts he will take on any more movie roles - because he makes more money as a mixed martial artist than as an actor.

The muscle man began his career fighting in Japan's combat sports scene before joining the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the U.S.

He stepped out of the ring after landing a high-profile role in the blockbuster, replacing Mr. T in the big-screen reboot of the 1980s series, but Jackson has no desire to further pursue acting - unless he's offered a bumper pay check for his next role.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "For what I get...

Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel and the rest of "The A-Team" cast made the rounds in an offroad army utility vehicle to promote the film in Paris yesterday.

Jessica recently admitted she never saw the original TV series. She plays character Charisa Sosa in the new film, co-starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper, which Mr. T has blasted for featuring too much sex and violence.

She says, "My folks didn't really let us watch any TV, so even if I had been cool enough to catch the show I wouldn't have been allowed to see it anyway."

Jessica Biel Never Watched Mr. T's 'A-Team'

Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel has added fuel to TV hard man Mr. T's harsh criticism of The A-Team movie remake after admitting she never saw the original TV series he made famous.

Biel plays A-Team character Charisa Sosa in the new film, co-starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper - which Mr. T has blasted for featuring too much sex and violence.

He recently said, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore. It was too graphic for me. I've no doubt it...

Mr. T Calls 'A-Team' Film 'Too Graphic' With A Lot Of Sex & Violence

June 7th, 2010 9:33am EDT
Mr. T
TV hardman Mr. T has slammed the film remake of "The A-Team" for featuring too much sex and violence.

The 58 year old played the original BA Baracus in the hit 1980s TV show but rejected a cameo role in the upcoming movie, starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper.

And after seeing a preview of the film, he admits he's shocked with how graphic it is.

Mr. T says, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore. It was too graphic for me. I'v...

Bradley Cooper Used To Look Like A Little Girl

Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper has an embarrassing childhood secret.

He explains, "People thought I was a girl when I was little, because I looked like a girl - maybe because my mother would keep my hair really long in a bowl cut. I was in a coffee shop once and the waitress was like, 'What do you want, Miss?' I was 10 or 11 - the worst age to have that happen. I thought I was really cool."

Bradley stars in the upcoming film "The A-Team." He plays playing Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck. Liam Neeson heads up the crew as Hannibal, the brains of the operation, with UFC star Quinton "Rampage" Jackson filling ...

'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' Isn't Deep, But It's Entertaining

September 16th, 2009 11:16am EDT
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
An animated film described as "a kids movie that the parents will enjoy" is becoming a bit of a hackneyed characterization. Really, what animated film in 2009 isn't described like that? And lately it's not even true. Are "Wall-E" and "Up" really kids films? Wouldn't it be better to describe those films as "parent films that kids will enjoy ?"

The underlying messages in recent Pixar films are too broad to ignore or simply write off as kid films. Is it even possible to have a children's film today without some deep-seated communiqué about saving the planet? Enter "Cloudy With a Chance of ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Informant,' 'Jennifer's Body' & More

September 14th, 2009 9:32am EDT
The Informant
Last week, the long weekend gave me a chance to see "District 9" in the movie theater. The film's science fiction elements took a back seat to its moral objective however, which was roughly to serve as an allegory for the Apartheid in South Africa.

Treatment of the aliens by humans, as a subhuman species really becomes emotionally jarring through the intense blood and gore that comprise the latter half of the movie. Audiences ultimately walk away from "District 9" disgusted by the inhumanity of the human race.

A nontraditional narrative, "District 9" is largely told through the use ...

Christian Kane - Leverage
It's always a bit disconcerting in an interview when it's mentioned by the interviewee that he could share a piece of information but, in exchange, he would have to kill you ... and in reality could actually pretty easily do just that. Christian Kane -- who stars as all around bad-ass Eliot Spencer on TNT's "Leverage" (Wednesday nights at 9 pm ET) -- joins us to discuss, well, a lot of things: Wrestling, Ultimate Fighting, Big XII Football, "The A-Team," Indiana Jones ... Oh, and that TV show he stars on, "Leverage," -- about a gang of con-people who take down the rich to create 'leverage' ...

R. Kelly
Hip Hop music is the most popular music genre in the world. Rappers like Lil Wayne, Eminem, and Jay-Z have gained worldwide recognition and success because of their rap lyrics and songs. Rap music is great, but some of the things rappers say or do are hypocritical, ridiculous, and downright annoying.

Here are the ten most annoying things about rappers:

1. Rappers love to rap about clubs and alcohol

If you've downloaded hip hop music or tuned into a music station lately, you probably heard a rap song about clubs and alcoholic drinks. More than half of the rap songs on the radio or ...

Bye-Bye, Bling: A Recessionary Note To Rappers Everywhere

October 29th, 2008 11:03am EDT
Lil Jon
Yo, my hip-hop brothers, some words of wisdom: these are hard times. Don’t know if you heard, but we’re in a recession. People are losing their homes. Folks’ retirement funds are tanking. People are pawning their jewelry for gas money.

It’s time to reel in the bling. The days of ’90s excess are over and out. All the gold ropes and gold teeth have got to go. You need to trade them in for cash and then hold on to it. Stuff it in those high-tops until the banks are safe again. No more shopping sprees. No more Hummers. No more Cristal. Back to basics, folks. You are not immune. Your record...

Writer's Viewpoint: Certain Films Lose Their Allure As We Age

July 28th, 2008 8:45am EDT
1989
I witnessed the masterpiece that is "The Dark Knight" over the weekend. We do not need to rehash why this film is so good; every perceivable media outlet has already done that. For me, one notable side effect of the film's greatness was to revisit "Batman" from 1989. Unfortunately, the years have not been kind to Tim Burton's vision of Batman, to the point where the film comes off almost campy. This is surprising considering that in 1989 the film was marketed as an answer to fans that complained about the tongue-in-cheek attitude of the 1960's television series.

"The Dark Knight" made...

The Five Most Underrated & Overrated Sports Movies

April 25th, 2008 8:36am EDT
Rocky III
Sports movies are often beloved but rarely good. It's hard to say why it is so difficult to make a great sports movie. It could be that there is far more drama in actually following sports than there is in watching a dramatized version on film. It could also be that it is so hard to make a sports movie that doesn't seem entirely unrealistic yet is filled with the appropriate amount of drama. Whatever the case, it's about as hard to make a great sports movie as it is to hit a Jake Peavy fastball.

Despite this, it seems more and more sports films are made each year, and even as the qu...

The "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul," singer Mary J. Blige, was goofing around in a mall as a teenager making a demo in a karaoke booth. Anchorman Stone Phillips was waiting tables. Supermodel Cindy Crawford was a college freshman shucking corn at a fair in Illinois.

We've all heard countless stories of ways ordinary people were plucked from obscurity and catapulted into stardom. Still, let's be real: Mary, Cindy and Stone are the exception, not the rule. So, how many random gigs did most celebrities weather on the rocky path to fame?

15 Memorable Music Scenes On Film

October 16th, 2007 10:08am EDT
William Shakespeare
As a film junkie and music geek I always look forward to seeing what songs directors will put in certain scenes to create the right mood. Finding the perfect song isn't always easy. The song has to fit that key moment or it could ruin the movie.

Following is a list of songs that have really made a movie scene stand out. I'm sure you will notice two things about me: I love chick flicks and 80's movies. This wasn't an easy task. I found over 50 songs and cut the list down to 15 with a few honorable mentions.
