Randy Travis
It's difficult enough getting arrested when you only have your friends and family to worry about. But when you're famous, the whole world learns about your indiscretions.

Earlier this week country star Randy Travis was arrested in Dallas, Texas, on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). Travis was completely naked at the time of his arrest, and reportedly threatened to kill the Texas troopers who took him into custody.

His mug shot (above) shows him with a black eye and dried blood on his face. Sadly, it's Travis' second arrest this year. In February, he was booked for public int...

Bosses at HBO have announced they will broadcast the Broadway production based on Paul Reubens' original stage show early next year.

Reubens has recreated his Saturday morning kids show, "Pee-wee's Playhouse," as an adult production for the stage and the concept has been a big hit in both Los Angeles and New York.

Paul Reubens To Write Three New Pee Wee Herman Movies

August 2nd, 2010 9:38am EDT
Pee Wee Herman
After the success of his stage revival of The Pee Wee Herman Show, Paul Reubens is bringing Pee Wee back to the big screen. He described three possible feature films to an audience at the Los Angeles Film Festival this summer, where they screened Pee Wee’s Big Adventure for its 25th Anniversary.

“One of them is what I have been told not to refer to as the “dark” Pee Wee movie, during which time Pee Wee becomes famous as a singer and gets brought out to Hollywood to make musical movies kind of like the Elvis movies and turns into a monster and is horrible to everybody,” Reubens said. “It wa...

Most '80s kids know him as a beloved icon of their childhoods, but Pee-wee Herman is soon to be better-known among theater-goers.

Paul Reubens has reprised his role as the energetic man-child in "The Pee-wee Herman Stage Show: The Return," a live stage version of his TV show's familiar formula. The stage show ran for four weeks in L.A. last January, but the production's garnered enough critical praise to move to New York in October.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Salt,' 'Valhalla Rising,' & More

July 19th, 2010 10:20am EDT
I saw both the “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “Inception,” which premiered last week. Personally I thought “Inception” is the best movie that I have seen all year. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” was fun, but in no way does it even reside on the same level of filmmaking. If you’re interested in reading my thoughts on each, check out my reviews here.

Angelina Jolie’s action thriller “Salt” arrives in theaters this week, as well as the dark age adventure “Valhalla Rising,” the dramedy “Life During Wartime,” the family film “Ramona and Beezus,” and the documentary “Countdown to Zero.”

Shining Star of the Week - Pee-wee Herman: Who would've thought that in 2010 Pee-wee could be the "Shining Star of the Week"?

Director Judd Apatow, the guy behind "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up", says he's on board to produce a new movie that would bring back the character from the 80's cult classic T.V. show and movies. Apatow told Variety, “Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman,".

Pee-wee himself, actor Paul Reubens, is also signed on for the flick (come on, what else is he doing these days?).

25 Years Ago In Film: A Celebration Of Classics From 1985

A Celebration Of Classics From 1985
It's difficult to believe the first month of 2010 is already over, considering it just felt like yesterday that I was ringing in the new decade. The end of January signals that the year is truly starting to pick up pace, but before it does I thought it might be appropriate to look back a little bit, well 25 years to be exact.

I'm going to climb into my cinematic time machine, as I frequently like to do, and travel back to 1985, one year before my own birth, to discuss some of its top grossing movies. Compared to some of the top grossing stories of the modern era, many of 1985's most ...

A Bigger 'Playhouse' Needed For Pee-Wee

October 7th, 2009 3:32pm EDT
Pee-Wee Herman
Paul Reubens has pushed back the theatrical revival of his most famous character Pee-Wee Herman, because there's so much demand he needs to move it to a larger venue.

The Pee-Wee Herman Show was initially set to start a 10-day run at the Music Box theater in Los Angeles next month.

Tickets sold out almost as soon as they went on sale in August, prompting producers to extend the run and switch the show from the 440-capacity Music Box to Club Nokia @ LA Live, which is five times the size.

A four week run at the new venue will kick off on January 12th, reports Daily Variety.

Pee-Wee Herman
Pee-Wee Herman is back - actor Paul Reubens is reviving his zany character for a new theater project.

"The Pee-Wee Herman Show" will run at the Music Box theater in Los Angeles from November 19 to 29, and Reubens admits he's a little nervous about reviving his most famous character.

He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "I've put part of him away for a long time, but part of him has always been here with me. I have some fear that he won't be funny after all this time. I don't want to ruin it."

Reubens retired bicycle-loving man-child Herman in 1990 after 13 episodes of Pee-Wee'...

Sam Rockwell Risks Scandal With Sex Addiction Research

September 1st, 2008 8:00pm EDT
Sam Rockwell
Movie star Sam Rockwell risked a tabloid scandal while preparing for new movie Choke - he attended sex addiction classes.

The actor plays a sex addict in the film and wanted to make sure he wasn't simply mocking the condition that recently sent actor David Duchovny to rehab - so he studied real people who were hooked on sex. He explains, "I went to about 10 meetings in Los Angeles. I went anonymously to most of them and tried to slip in. To be honest, I didn't really give a s**t what the tabloids would write if I was seen at these meetings. I'm not Pee Wee Herman, so nobody cares.

Paul Reubens Enjoys Lying To Interviewers

Paul Reubens
Comedian Paul Reubens likes to lie during interviews because it gets investors interested in projects that haven't been approved by studio executives. The 54-year-old star last night admitted to chat show host Jimmy Kimmel that during a previous appearance on his program his comments about a new Pee-Wee Herman movie weren't true.

He said, "Well, here's the thing. I totally, during interviews, a lot of the time, lie. I make stuff up.

"The first time it ever happened, someone said 'What are you doing next?' And I said, 'I'm building Pee-Wee Land.' And it got printed and I started ge...

"Every once in a while someone says, 'That's a long time to stay at the movies.' But, if you remember a double feature, you don't have to watch both movies, if you don't want; if you see Robert's (Rodriguez) movie, watched the trailers and you're happy, go home." Quentin Tarantino has no time for people who complain about the three hour-plus running time of his and Rodriguez's Grindhouse double bill.
