'Vikings' Snags Season 5 Renewal, Adds Jonathan Rhys Meyers To C
History's first scripted series Vikings will be back for a fifth season and has also recruited actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers to join its already expansive ensemble. The network made both announcements Thursday.

Currently in the middle of its fourth season, Vikings has scored a pick-up for 20 new episodes to make up season five.

Presumably, History will split the 20 episodes into two 10-episode batches, as they are doing with the current cycle.

The sixth episode of season four airs this coming week and her...

11/16/2011 10:16pm EST
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
Actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers has been handed one-month suspended sentence relating to an arrest in 2009.

The Match Point star was accused of striking a bar patron at France's Charles de Gaulle airport and allegedly insulted three police officers as he was being taken into custody in June, 2009.

On Wednesday, the actor was officially charged with drunk and disorderly conduct and told to pay a $1,348.70 fine and stay out of trouble or else face time behind bars.

According to the Agence France-Presse, the actor, who did not appear in court for the sentencing, additionally compensated his vict...

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
A female airline worker who accused actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers of assaulting her in an incident at New York's JFK International Airport last May has withdrawn her complaint.

United Airlines customer service director Kathryn Williams sued The Tudors star earlier this month, alleging she suffered permanent physical damage and severe emotional distress when Meyers launched a drunken tirade at staff.

Her lawsuit stated, "Defendant Jonathan Rhys Meyers willfully, maliciously, wantonly and without any just cause or provocation assaulted and battered plaintiff Kathryn Williams."

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Sued Over Alleged Airport Assault

3/17/2011 8:36am EDT
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is facing a lawsuit over allegations he assaulted a female worker at New York's JFK Airport last May.

The Tudors actor was banned from flying with United Airlines after allegedly launching a drunken tirade at staff following a vodka binge while waiting for his flight.

He headed to rehab shortly after the incident to battle his ongoing alcohol problems, but Meyers' alleged outburst has come back to haunt him after United Airlines customer service director Kathryn Williams filed suit against the star earlier this month.

In papers filed at the Supreme Court in Q...

Bosses at a U.K. rehab center attended by Amy Winehouse and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers have been fined $57,000 for treating patients without obtaining a proper license.

District Judge Cooper criticized the owners of the Causeway Retreat for being "scandalously negligent, if not downright misleading and fraudulent" in a ruling at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court, England on Friday.

Managers of the private hospital on Osea Island in Essex, England pleaded guilty to two charges of carrying on a medical service that was unregistered with the Care Quality Commission.

The judge ordered them to pay $12,...

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Heads To Rehab

5/19/2010 9:50am EDT
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
Jonathan Rhys Meyers is seeking treatment for an alleged alcohol addiction, according to reports. The Tudors star is said to have struggled to maintain his sobriety since a 2005 stint in a clinic to address personal issues.

In 2007, he ran into trouble with police at an airport in Dublin, Ireland, where he was arrested and charged with being drunk and disorderly. The charges were later dropped. He once again caused a stir in Paris' Charles De Gaulle airport last year after allegedly assaulting an employee while drunk. And earlier this week, Meyers was reportedly banned from a U.S. flight ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Wolfman,' 'Valentine's Day,'

2/8/2010 10:15am EST
The Wolfman
Pierre Morel's film from last week "From Paris With Love," isn't awesomely bad, but instead it's just plain bad. As an action movie, it's visually entertaining because it engrosses you in the fight scenes and shootouts

, while maintaining solid pacing. These elements are completely overshadowed however by the horrendously written dialogue and plot.

The story doesn't introduce any specific elements to engage the audience or fully explain the terrorist plan the protagonists are hoping to thwart. In some instances the dialogue is so ludicrous that you find yourself audibly laughing at ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Dear John,' 'From Paris With Love,' 'Frozen'

2/1/2010 12:00pm EST
From Paris With Love
I returned to the movies last week to see Mel Gibson's thriller "Edge of Darkness." A large part of me was anxious to see it since I knew Gibson plays a Boston cop whose daughter is murdered in front of him. As Gibson's character, Detective Thomas Craven, launches his own investigation into his daughter's untimely demise, he starts unraveling threads to a conspiracy involving big business and government in Massachusetts.

While this sounds like a promising plot that could be quite engrossing, in execution the film falls flat in creating the necessary tension. The pacing for most of the...

Everything Geeky: Onscreen Inaccuracy - Necessary or Needless?

6/30/2009 11:34am EDT
The Tudors
I was recently flipping through channels on a quiet Sunday evening when the new show "Merlin" caught my eye. It was originally a British TV drama that did fairly well and premiered in the US on June 21. So far it's viewership isn't too bad and they even got a second season, but seriously? It's terrible. It's terrible in that awesome way where the plots are silly and the acting is somewhat ridiculous, but yet you can't help but keep watching. It has a certain badly budgeted charm that is a reminder of "Hercules: The Legendary Journey" and "Xena: Warrior Princess." Only it's lighter, fluffier...

Our Favorite Bug-Eyed Celebrities

4/21/2009 10:11am EDT
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
In Hollywood, you've got show-stopping performances and eye-popping beauties. But what about those Hollywood beauties whose eyes just pop? Some celebrities are recognized by their plunger lips, or by their adorable pair of dimples, while others are distinguished by their bulging peepers. The bug-eye feature is very hit or miss, however. On one hand, bug-eyes have the ability to create unconventional gorgeosity in a person, but on the other hand, they are also capable of making good faces go Muppet.

Christina Ricci falls into the former category of bug-eyed celebrities. Her sizeable...

'The Tudors' Gets 4th Season Pick-Up

The Tudors
On the heels of a critically lauded third season premiere of Showtime's award-winning drama series The Tudors, the network has announced the pick-up of a fourth season of the epic-period saga starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as King Henry VIII.

The final season will consist of 10, one-hour episodes and center on his tumultuous relationships with his last two wives, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr, and his final descent into madness. Season four, which will return in spring 2010, will be written by series creator and executive producer Michael Hirst, with production slated to begin th...

Showtime's 'The Tudors' Is Back

4/6/2009 4:22pm EDT
The Tudors
Aaaaand we're back! Season 3 of Showtime's The Tudors started with more of a whimper than a bang, as the debatably most interesting period in Henry VII's rule (the Boleyn years) ended last season with poor, delicious Anne losing her head. Now we move into a decidedly slower, stodgier era, with the marriage of Henry to sweet, simple Jane Seymour, and the eventual birth of the King's long-awaited heir, Edward.

The season premiere confirmed the classier direction the show is taking; gone are the hallmark gratuitous sex and fluffy costume-porn filler scenes of the racy first season, and he...

Why I Don't Feel Guilty About Loving 'The Tudors'

1/20/2009 10:00am EST
The Tudors
Why on Earth do I love Showtime's The Tudors so much, anyway? On the surface, this show has all the earmarks of the guiltiest of guilty pleasures: over-the-top costumes, fiery political intrigue, loads of violence, and plenty of, um, bodice-ripping. And I can't get enough of it. Perhaps it's because the steamy historical soap is unique, in that it has the odd ability to entertain the hell out of me even while it takes ridiculous, impossible liberties with history, characterization, and plot. Usually I get all bent out of shape when a movie or TV show portrays an event or people in ways that...

The Most Underrated & Overrated Woody Allen Films

8/29/2008 11:58am EDT
Woody Allen
This month, Woody Allen returned with his best film in years. The mesmerizing love triangle that is "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" takes Allen back to his world of thematic comedies of love that he first cultivated in the mid-70s. It has all the classic Allen touches like his stylized adult dialogue and self-examining humor.

It's a pleasure to see the Woodman operating again at full form after a decade filled with "Scoop", "Hollywood Ending" and films of that nature. This return to brilliance can't help but make a fan re-explore Allen's films of year's past.

When doing so, you're ce...

HBO Vs. Showtime

8/21/2008 9:00am EDT
Big Love
An average TV viewer has hundreds of options to watch on any given time slot, so if he or she chooses to pay extra money for a special channel, it better deliver on what it promises. HBO and Showtime are two channels that offer movies - both new and old - and quality television programming. Usually the shows are inappropriate for regular cable, and they are given more freedom to be daring, innovative, and crude.

HBO has been showing new movies and producing popular television since 1977, while Showtime focused more on boxing championships and premiering impressive short independent fi...

Joss Stone To Star In 'The Tudors'

The blonde beauty with the Aretha Franklin vibrato, Grammy-winning songstress Joss Stone, will join the cast of Showtime's The Tudors' third season, playing Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII's (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) fourth wife. Stone will star in three episodes, which are currently shooting in Dublin, Ireland, and will return in 2009.

Novel Roots: Best & Worst Films Based Off Of Books

5/20/2008 11:17am EDT
The Bourne Ultimatum
Many filmmakers are taking on the challenge of turning classic novels into feature films. It's a challenge because many people have fallen in love with the books and don't want directors messing with them. There are many books that were translated poorly on the big screen, but there are films that are just as good as the book, if not better.

In no particular order, here is a look at some of the best and worst films that are based off books:
