'Ray Donovan' Season 2 Premiere Recap: Like Season One, But With More Talking Dolphins

'Ray Donovan' Season 2 Premiere Recap: Like Season One, But With
Hey, did you know you can show gratuitous sex and naked people on Showtime? Showtime does. And that's why last night's season premiere of "Ray Donovan," entitled "Yo Soy Capitan," opened with the series' two leads (that would be Ray Donovan and his dad, Mickey), in various stages of doin' it.

Also, both Ray, played by Liev Schrieber, and Mickey, played by Jon Voight, start off the premiere with their own individual dream sequences. And as is completely typical of "Ray Donovan," Ray gets the less interesting, slightly generic one, while Mickey gets the one that is completely nutso and thus ...

Naomi Watts Made The First Move On Husband Liev Schreiber

Diana star Naomi Watts has shared the story about when she and now husband Liev Schreiber first met, revealing that he almost got away -- and she wasn't about to let that happen.

"It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be," she says in the November issue of Allure magazine.

"Normally I want a guy to make the first move, and he wasn't. Then he got up to say he was leaving and I was like, 'Oh, s***. Probably another couple years are going to pass by. I was wildly attracted to him and his work, so I said something cheeky as he was about to walk out. I said, 'Don't you want my di...

'Ray Donovan' 1.7 and Whitey Bulger

August 13th, 2013 8:52pm EDT
Ray Donovan
Just as Showtime's Ray Donovan is really picking up steam, the Whitey Bulger trial in Boston comes to a head with a verdict.   Showtime must be delighted with the coincidence - it almost makes up for the Showtime (Viacom-CBS) dispute with Time Warner which has deprived New York City viewers of Ray Donovan, Dexter, and much more.  On that issue, I say a pox on both your houses - Viacom and Time Warner, you both are worth billions, give the viewers a break, one or both of you accept a little less, and get on with it.  (See my comments on this in The Christian Science Monitor.)  But I digress-...

Hilarious Looking 'Movie 43' Trailer Features Tons Of Stars, Gerard Butler As A Leprechaun

October 3rd, 2012 6:09pm EDT
Movie 43
If you ask us, if Movie 43 is just half as funny as the trailer, it's destined to be a classic. We have no idea what it's about, other than it's actually 25 short films helmed by several different directors including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner and Griffin Dunne, and it features a huge, HUGE cast of A-list stars.

The film's greenband trailer (e.g.: approved-for-all-audiences) premiered during Tuesday night's episode of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central; and on Wednesday the very not-safe-for-work (NSFW) red-band trailer debuted on the network's website (according to...

Bo Derek and John Corbett
The hottest couple that would have donned the top of our list of unmarried Hollywood couples surprised us all and got engaged last week- Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. While all the congratulations are in order for the couple, it sparked a question in our heads- why the wait? While not all couples feel it necessary to wed, in the case of Brangelina- considering they have 6 children, why not get married? But now that we have crossed them off our list, we focus on the other celebrity couples who have stayed together through thick and thin but haven’t put a ring on it.

'Taking Woodstock' Review: Where Did The Music Go?

August 27th, 2009 10:43am EDT
Taking Woodstock
What would the Woodstock Music & Art Fair have been like without the music? Most likely: Three days of 500 thousand wet, drug induced concert goers rolling around in the mud. Well, at least the final act of Ang Lee's "Taking Woodstock" gets that part right. The festival is very much in full force but, strangely, the actual music is no where to be found. Really, were the music rights really that expensive? What "Taking Woodstock" does do is show a microcosm of the entire late 1960's counter-culture movement through the eyes of sleepy upstate New York town of Bethel over a month long period, ...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the first movie of the summer that fans can really get pumped about. Star Trek doesn't come out until Friday. Terminator Salvation is a little further down the line, and I'm already bracing my broom for the Hogwartz rush.

But Wolverine is ahead of the pack, so I was really revved up for the midnight showing over the weekend, wearing my blazing yellow spandex and scratching at the mutton chops that didn't quite grow in correctly. I accidentally jabbed at a couple of frat boys in the front row with my plastic claws while I was trying to get to my seat. But he...

Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...
