The Top 10 Male Models Turned Actors

June 22nd, 2014 3:00pm EDT
The Top 10 Male Models Turned Actors
Who says they're just a pretty face? While we often times view male models as baloon-brained as their stereotypical female counterparts, it's not always so. It's been proven time and time again that the best actors can come from the most unlikely places. Just because male models don't say much, doesn't mean they don't have much to say.

These runway superstars turned leading men have entirely other attributes other than boyish smiles, hot bods, and the ability to look good in just their underwear. They can actually act as well! And sometimes, they do it better than anyone else. No one plays...

50 Cent And 16 Other Absolutely Horrific Celebrity First Pitches

May 28th, 2014 2:32pm EDT
50 Cent
By now you've probably seen rapper 50 Cent's poor attempt at a ceremonial first pitch at last night's Mets game, but he's just one of many celebrities that should stick to the talents that made them famous. In case you missed it, check out Fiddy's toss below, then check out some other truly terrible tosses by celebrities.

10 Superstar Actors Who Turned Down Iconic Movie and TV Roles

April 22nd, 2014 3:30pm EDT
Neo - Deal With It
Could you picture Tom Selleck outrunning boulders and beating up Nazis as Indiana Jones? Or lovable high school truant Matthew Broderick brewing up blue meth as Walter White? Highly doubtful, since Harrison Ford and Bryan Cranston’s iconic characters are impossible to play by any other actor no matter how talented or accomplished.

Yet it's surprising to consider how many iconic movies and TV series almost were narrowly miscast with the wrong stars. Even though their careers may have suffered from turning down these blockbuster hits, these characters luckilly found their proper Hollywood vo...

New TV Spot For 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' Debuts

Transformers: Age of Extinction
"A new era has begun. The age of the Transformers is over," says a voice during the latest TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

But thanks to Cade Yeager's (Mark Wahlberg) discovery of a familiar old and defunct Autobot and bringing it to life again, it appears that the assumption of the narrator is wrong, and the robots from Cybertron are getting ready to wage yet another war on Earth.

Someone is searching for Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots, for an unnamed reason, and when an envoy shows up at Wahlberg's home his Transformer quickly springs to life.

7 Awesome Video Games That Could (or Should) Be Movies
The video game industry brings in billions of dollars annually. Some of the top games now bring in more money than a major Hollywood blockbuster.

Hollywood is full of sexy celebrity siblings who share the spotlight, often in the same discipline.

The Hemsworth brothers stormed Hollywood in recent years for their work in popular film franchises such as "The Hunger Games" and "The Avengers." The Australian-born brothers will likely continue to produce box office hits in years to come.

14 Beloved Celebrities Who Have Been In Jail
Nobody's perfect, but it may surprise you to learn some the world's most beloved celebrities have spent time in jail.

Mark Wahlberg is a blockbuster star loved by many now, but in his teens he was a very trouble young man. A drug-addled Wahlberg had dozens of run-ins with the law by the time he was in his teens, but the most serious charge against him came after he attacked two Vietnamese men while shouting racial epithets, leaving one of them permanently blind in one eye.

This whole Tom Cruise/Mark Wahlberg feud is much ado about nothing.

In case you need to be caught up: Tom Cruise was in a disposition for his lawsuit against tabloids. A lawyer asked him, "Now, your counsel has publicly equated your absence from Suri for these extended periods of time as being analogous to someone fighting in Afghanistan.  Are you aware of that?"

Cruise responded, "I didn't hear the Afghanistan, but that's what it feels like, and certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal."

It was then later added that while talking with his lawyer, he was asked, "Do you ...

'Entourage' Movie Held Up By Jeremy Piven's Salary?

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...

Grab that popcorn and soda then sit back and be ready to be blown away because 2 Guns is the perfect mixture of comedy and action. Though the plot of the film is outrageously complex with dozens of twists and turns (and oh no they aren’t going there, but they are moments), Denzel Washington’s and Mark Wahlberg’s chemistry on screen is electric.

Wahlberg is especially happy with this latest twist on the traditional buddy comedy. Usually they’ll take the comedy guy, the really out-there comedy guy, and put him with the straight guy. Wahlberg explains they didn’t want to do that and felt like...
