Chuck Norris Outdoes Jean-Claude Van Damme's Epic Split

December 20th, 2013 9:13am EST
Chuck Norris
Chuck Norris couldn't let his "Expendables" co-star Jean-Claude Van Damme get away with performing the most epic split ever.

Naturally, the man who can slam a revolving door and light a fire by rubbing two ice cubes together, had to one-up his fellow martial artist by performing his own epic split.

And boy, did he deliver.

Using the same Enya song in the background that Van Damme used for his now-infamous Volvo truck commerical, Norris does a split between two jumbo jets in flight while simultaneously balancing a crew of skydivers on his head while they do a Christmas tree formation.

19 Celebrities Who Are Older Than You Think
Some stars are blessed with youthful looks: would you believe Jim Parsons is 40? Other stars are blessed with youthful roles: we've seen Tom Welling as a young Clark Kent for so long it's hard to believe he's 36.

Speaking of superheroes, Andrew Garfield was able to pull off a believable high school-aged Peter Parker despite being 28 at the time. He's now 30 and looks like he'll play the role just fine once more. Perhaps his girlfriend Emma Stone, who is 6 years his junior, adds to his youthful appearance!

Here are some more celebrities who are older than you think...

Slovak officials have shut down a bid from community members to name a new bridge after actor Chuck Norris.

Fans of The Expendables 2 star campaigned to push assembly members into naming a newly-constructed pedestrian and cycling bridge, which spans the Morava River and Slovakian border with Austria, near the capital city of Bratislava, after Norris.

Chuck Norris Doesn't Want Gay People In The Boy Scouts

Chuck Norris
Martial arts icon Chuck Norris is angry at the leader of the Boy Scouts of America, who recently vowed to "seek a change" regarding the organization's anti-gay stance.

Norris has also criticized gay rights campaigners for trying to overturn the group's "century-old policy" banning gay members.

The Boy Scouts' long-standing rules have come under scrutiny since lesbian Ohio mum Jennifer Tyrrell was kicked out in April as an adult leader of her son's Bridgeport troop. Bosses determined her sexual orientation "did not meet the high standards" of the group, and Tyrell's child was asked to leav...

Chuck Norris
Chuck Norris ensures his young children don't watch the violent scenes in his action movies by making a special family-friendly version for them.

Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone has abandoned plans to make his sequel to The Expendables more family-friendly by toning down the violence and bad language.

Fans of the first film feared the development meant the hard-hitting movie would be toned down for a younger audience - but Stallone, who writes and stars in The Expendables 2, has now revealed the sequel will have a restricted 'R' rating after all.

He tells the StalloneZone websi...

Rocker Ted Nugent has revealed he tried to ween guitar great Jimi Hendrix off drugs in the months before he died in 1970.

The "Cat Scratch Fever" star experienced the extent of his hero's drug intake during a jam session with the tragic star backstage at a concert - when he was offered all manner of narcotics.

But he didn't want to ruin the moment, so he declined - and went on to become a drug-free rocker after seeing so many greats become "drooling and puking" dead men.

He says, "I saw how they got to the drooling, puking and dying thing and I went, 'I think I'll avoid the drooling puki...

In Memory Of '24'

24 Series Finale
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to remember ’24,’ the television program which showed us that torture is sometimes necessary, that evil is rarely absolute, and that government agencies are infiltrated with alarming regularity.

To see the program now, it’s hard to imagine that the whole thing started with a gimmick. The initial marketing campaign for ‘24’ focused mainly on one thing: The show would occur in real time. An hour long episode would actually cover one hour of the characters’ lives. Given the subject matter, the possibilities were endless: Terrorist deadlines and ultim...

The Ten Greatest Of The Decade: TV Shows

December 14th, 2009 9:30am EST
Best TV Of The Decade
As the decade reaches its conclusion, you'll undoubtedly come across many lists. Lists that purport to tell you the best, the top, the cream of the decade as they relate to pop culture. You're also certain to come across many lists that claim to rank the "greatest" of the ten year period from 2000-2009. But what does that really mean?

"Greatest" should be something entirely different from what we usually associate with these lists. Mostly, these lists claim to rank the best - something that is only truly possible were a listmaker to, say, see every single movie in a given decade. If...

Remote Control Battle: TV Both Men And Women May Enjoy Together

November 16th, 2009 9:00pm EST
Remote Control Battle
A Woman's Perspective: Remember when sitcoms used to make jokes about how men and women watch television differently? The sloppy, somewhat aloof husband character would always be zooming through the channels, flicking the remote faster than his perky, pretty, younger wife could keep up. She'd then snatch the remote and pause on each channel achingly slowly, narrating not only what was occurring in the scene on screen but also what she hoped or thought would occur next.

Not only did men and women watch differently, though, what they watched was always assumed to be different. Men had the...

Will The Candidates' Celebrity Supporters Have Any Impact On The Presidential Election?

January 23rd, 2008 11:38am EST
Barack Obama
Celebrities have long made their political affiliations known, to both the disgruntlement and delight of fans. They've turned on-air time into opportunities to express distaste for our current administration; they've used their fame to help their chosen candidates. Like it or not, some celebrities never turn down a chance to talk politics. And, like it or not, the public often listens.

Politicians have shown their discontent with glitterati appearing in front of Congress (Julia Roberts, Christie Brinkley, Michael J. Fox and even Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys have just done th...

Has Hollywood Run Out of Ideas?

Underdog Movie
There no longer seems to be much originality in Hollywood. When did the ability to sit down and write a captivating screenplay from scratch go out of style? It seems that Hollywood is stuck on turning cartoons and video games into movies. And there's the predatory sequel often lurking and waiting to be as bad as the original movie or better, if we're lucky.

Cartoon Disasters

Talk about digging something out of the woodwork. In the summer of 2007, the 1964-1973 cartoon "Underdog" was brought to life on the big screen, and we have to wonder why? Kids probably enjoyed it, and "Und...
