Entourage
Who knew one quote would reveal so much about a film? Mark Wahlberg's "greedy" comments started a litany of rumors and articles on the highly-anticipated Entourage film. Now, it appears the "greedy guys" are the cast, who seek to make as much as Jeremy Piven will for the film.

Warner Brothers will make sure the film will stay under a $30 million budget, which has led to a stand-off between the cast and producers. The Hollywood Reporter cites sources saying Jeremy Piven has sealed a deal that will give him a nice payday, and points out that Piven had the richest deal at the start of the ser...

Here are ten TV characters that I still think about, in (almost) chronological order of their departures.

1. Jennifer Sampson in Line of Fire, as played by Julie Ann Emery (2003)

Entourage star Jeremy Piven has one Christmas memory he'll never forget after almost crashing his parents' car into a neighbor's home as a teen - because he had no idea how to drive.

The young star jumped at the chance to get behind the wheel - despite never having driven before - and the ride back to his Chicago, Illinois home almost ended in disaster.

He says, "I remember one Christmas my parents were out of town, (and they said), 'We have to drive ...

Wow, there were some bad movies, like really bad, in 2009 but since we are optimists we like to think the good outnumbered the bad. We already discussed the good movies, and now we will feature the bad and ugly of 2009. Sometimes bad movies are entertaining enough to keep our attention for a few hours but sometimes the movies are so bad we induce vomiting to make us feel better.

Couples Retreat (25) had the cast and the budget to be a funny flick and it came out in the fourth quarter of 2009 when the best movies already came out. This movie was bad, not funny, and it might have marked th...

John Cusack

While some of his movies over the years have been outlandish and goofy from a plot perspective, Cusack's deadpan sense of humor tends to keep them grounded in a way a lot of viewers can relate to.

Cusack's latest role in Roland Emmerich's "2012" veers away from his traditional light hearted fare toward something heavier. Judging from the previews, it looks like a thri...
