Kate Gosselin's Dating Profile, Walken Impressions, Rednecks & More (Videos)

Kate Gosselin
Today's videos include Kate Gosselin's Match.com profile - another classic from "Funny or Die!"... a montage of rednecks doing stupid stuff & some fantastic Christopher Walken impressions done by Asians. Speaking of Asians, there's also a video of "Cutey Honey", whose claim to fame is being the first female Manga character. We're still not entirely sure what exactly Manga is, but we know it has something to do with Japan and comic books and weird characters with really strange powers. And finally, a new kind of 'booty call'. Check 'em all out!

Exclusive: Tim Meadows On 'The Bill Engvall Show' And His Favorite Moments On 'SNL'

7/9/2009 10:59am EDT
Tim Meadows
Tim Meadows joins us to discuss the upcoming season of "The Bill Engvall Show" (premiering July 18 on TBS). He continues the discussion -- that we had previously begun with Nancy Travis -- about the state of the American sitcom and looks back at his favorite moments on "Saturday Night Live," throwing out the first pitch at a Cubs game and tries to answer why, actually, did he sign that SNL 30 year contract.

Mike: How did you get involved with "The Bill Engvall Show"? I've followed your career for some time; I really like you on the show but, I admit, I didn't completely see this one comi...

Rockin' and Reelin': Seven Spectacular Movie Concerts

7/7/2009 10:00am EDT
School of Rock
Pull out your lighter, turn up the volume, and get ready to throw up the horns. This jammin' compilation is my top seven compilation of climactic movie concerts. Why seven? Seven is a nice odd number.

When I first decided to form a list of top movie concerts, I thought having a wealth of film knowledge would help me out. Sitting down to draft the list however, I found myself at a loss for ideas. I couldn't see the forest for the trees, and plots sat jumbled together in my head.

After thinking for a few days and taking a stroll through my neighborhood Blockbuster's going out of bu...

Zac Efron: The Next Leonardo DiCaprio Or Corey Feldman?

5/14/2009 9:30am EDT
Zac Efron
In theory, being a teen heartthrob seems like a pretty sweet gig. They never have to wait for tables at restaurants, they have throngs of adoring fans, and they get to date gorgeous models and actresses. Basically, they are given a first class ticket for life, which means more leg room, no middle seats, and cashews instead of peanuts.

But as appetizing as all that sounds, teen heartthrobdom isn't all that it's cracked up to be. It can be a dicey business that often comes at a hefty price because it doesn't guarantee that the ensuing path will be paved quite as goldenly as the yellow b...

Similar Story Smackdown: Which Hollywood Flicks Came Out On Top?

4/27/2009 11:57am EDT
Saving Private Ryan
So, have you seen this year's comedy about an overweight, overzealous, loser-y mall cop who takes his job way too seriously and is hopelessly in love with a fellow shopping center employee? If you're not sure whether I'm referring to January's hit Paul Blart: Mall Cop or the newest Seth Rogen comedy Observe and Report (in theaters now), don't be too hard on yourself: Both flicks have eerily similar plotlines. This isn't the first time two films with the same subject matter have been released within a year of one another; Hollywood has a talent for redundancy (see: recycling and ripping off)...

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...

25 Surprise Celebrity Deaths That Rocked Us All

4/7/2009 9:10am EDT
Natasha Richardson
Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

An Insider's Look At 'SNL' Behind The Scenes

4/1/2009 10:53am EDT
SNL
I am a Saturday Night Live junkie - so much so that at times I have trouble hiding how big of a fan when that little thing called professionalism may be at stake. It was so apparent in the interview I conducted with current featured player Bobby Moynihan - a self-described "SNL" nerd himself - that he casually mentioned the prospect of me attending a show.

Now I could tell Bobby was a really nice guy, but I thought he was just trying to be polite. I was pleasantly surprised (read: screamed like a 12 year old girl!) when a week later he followed up on that invitation and asked if I wan...

The Best & Worst Of Julia Roberts

3/27/2009 9:26am EDT
Mary Reilly
As one of the highest paid actresses in the world, it is no surprise that Julia Roberts has a long and varied career to admire. She started out as a romantic comedy charmer, and she has done several of them even after her vast popularity, but eventually Roberts moved into more dramatic filmmaking and huge box office hits.

She was the first actress to be on the cover of Vogue, and she is undoubtedly considered one of America's Sweethearts, so much so that she actually starred in a movie of the same name! Beautiful, intelligent, well spoken, and hard working, Roberts has been in a numbe...

Rob Schneider Talks About 'Big Stan', 'SNL' And His Famous Feuds

3/26/2009 11:26am EDT
Rob Schneider
Rob Schneider has never been one to back away from controversy and as we discussed his new film Big Stan -- released on DVD this week -- this became all the more apparent as this interview went along. Rob is very candid about what he thinks of a fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus and expresses his love for Roger Ebert, a man he once engaged in a very public dispute.

Mike: So, how was the transition to directing?

Rob: Not a big transition because I always felt I had a hand in directing all my movies. So, I really knew what I wanted and it took so many months to finally get the m...

Stars Who Were Probably Abducted

10/28/2008 11:00am EDT
Gary Busey
Artists. They sing, dance, paint and act. Most parents would consider their child confused and misguided if they declared, "I'm going to be an artist!" and do everything possible to persuade him or her to go to college, grad school or into temping. ANYTHING else that provides a more consistent and reliable income. Among the occupations that can lead to the starving artist syndrome is the usual pairing of actor and waitress. Living off small tips might lead to the sometimes bizarre behavior of Hollywood's up and comers, but the crazy trait runs stronger in some unique actors…and crazy is wha...

'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!' & Other Memorable TV Quotes

When the television became available in the early 20th century, who would have ever thought it could became such a vital part of pop culture and media coverage? These days the "Boob Tube" still holds power over even the most casual of viewers with its advertising campaigns and storytelling prime time shows.

The television is used to entertain as well as inform, and over the years thousands of shows were created to catch the attention of the public. Only so many shows are able to grab the love and approval of audiences, and even less than that stay memorable after years pass on. Here a...

The Most Underrated And Overrated Saturday Night Live Hosts

7/11/2008 11:16am EDT
George Carlin
About three weeks ago, one of the world's best comedians and the first host of "Saturday Night Live" passed away. Here at the worldwide offices of overrated/underrated, we felt a tribute was in order. Problem is, there's nothing you can say about George Carlin that fits the motif. Nothing he did was either under or overrated: He was just great.

Still, respects must be paid in some manner, so instead this article will honor the first host of "Saturday Night Live", by running down a list of the most overrated and underrated frequent hosts of that show. For this article, entrants must ...

In Honor Of Memorial Day Weekend: Our Favorite War Movies

5/23/2008 8:30am EDT
Saving Private Ryan
Memorial Day commemorates members of the armed forces who died in war or any military action. Americans often celebrate Memorial Day by watching the Indy 500, going shopping, or having family picnics. Why not spend this Memorial Day thinking about the soldiers who gave their lives to the United States by watching a war film?

The staff here at Starpulse.com got together and came up with a list of some of our favorite war movies. Here they are in no particular order:

Band of Brothers (2001) - Yes, we know it's technically a mini-series, but it's so good we had to include it. The ...

The Best & Worst Films By Quentin Tarantino

4/24/2008 8:30am EDT
Quentin Tarantino
The serendipitous career of eccentric movie producer, director and writer Quentin Tarantino is a complex one. Tarantino has made a name for himself by creating nonlinear storylines and filming multiple perspectives from different characters in his movies - a technique that strays from the more commonly used straight-time storyline.

His films are not off the wall, but they invoke an element of surprise that comes from the small details within a scene that catches one off guard and by adding mysterious elements that never get explained. A good example of this was in Pulp Fiction when M...

The Five Best & Worst Films Starring John Travolta

4/10/2008 2:00pm EDT
Grease
John Travolta has been acting for over 30 years since his burst onto the scene as hot disco stud Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever. In the early 80s he went into an acting slump, starring in disappointing films left and right.

Then he made his comeback in 1994 as Vincent Vega in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. Since then, he has been in dozens of movies, been nominated for two Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe. Travolta is now a little older, a little chubbier and a little balder, but we still admire his work as he continues to dance his way onto the silver screen.
