Hollywood's Hottest Celebrity Siblings

March 27th, 2014 1:26am EDT
Hollywood's Hottest Celebrity Siblings
Hollywood is full of sexy celebrity siblings who share the spotlight, often in the same discipline.

Sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles have both demonstrated their musical chops over the years, but Beyonce is by far the bigger star. However, Solange has made a dent in the fashion industry and is often watched for her clothing and hairstyle choices.

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.

Luke Wilson Enthusiastic For Armless 'Anchorman' Return

April 9th, 2012 12:11pm EDT
Luke Wilson
Luke Wilson is eager to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy sequel, despite his character losing both arms in the original movie.

Will Ferrell recently confirmed his obnoxious newsman character will be returning to the big screen for a follow-up after several years of financial wrangling with bosses at the 2004 hit's studio Paramount Pictures.

The main cast, including Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate, are all expected to return, and Wilson has also made it known he is eager to rejoin the cast - even though his Anchorman alter ego ...

Check Out 'Middle Men' On DVD & Blu-ray Feb. 8

February 5th, 2011 7:42am EST
Middle Men
Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, and Gabriel Macht headline director/co-screenwriter George Gallo's fact-based period comedy "Middle Men," detailing the rise of the internet porn business in the mid-'90s.

Businessman Jack Harris (Wilson) made his living solving other people's problems. Wayne Beering (Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Macht) were two technological innovators with a plan to make a mint by selling pornography online.

When Jack met Wayne and Buck, it was a match made in money heaven. Before long the trio was making 200,000 dollars a day, but it wouldn't last. When a young porn star begins...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'The Other Guys,' 'Step Up 3D' & More

August 8th, 2010 7:20pm EDT
The Other Guys
I caught two of last week’s films in theaters: “Dinner for Schmucks” and “Charlie St. Cloud.” Both of which I found to be pretty average films.

As a comedy “Dinner for Schmucks” is incredibly twisted in the way that makes you laugh because you don’t know how else to react. It takes Judd Apatow-esque raunchy humor and blends it with “Meet the Parents” style awkward situations. Steve Carell effortlessly causes train wrecks wherever he turns in the effort to help Paul Rudd’s character. While I enjoyed it as a story, it did not make me laugh to the degree I hoped it would. My Grade: C+

Actor Luke Wilson is eager to find love and start a family - because he fears he'll be too old to play with his kids if he continues to focus on his career.

The "Vacancy" star, who has previously dated Drew Barrymore, admits he is well aware of his advancing years as a bachelor and he's more than ready to settle down.

But the 38 year old will have to find a girlfriend first.

He tells USA Today, "I'm working on that one. Start a family, start tucking my shirt in and wear a belt, putting the right button in the right hole.

Tracy Morgan Owns Jacko Glove

Tracy Morgan
Comedian Tracy Morgan has struck it rich - he owns one of Michael Jackson's original jeweled gloves.

The funnyman's Death at a Funeral co-star, Luke Wilson, scoffed at the fact Morgan had paid $17,000 for the pop culture memorabilia item - but now he's convinced Morgan is sitting on a small fortune.

Wilson says, "It was right when Michael Jackson had announced that he was gonna do those shows in London before he passed away and Tracy was like, 'You know I bought Mike's glove - the one from the Thriller video,' and I was like, 'Really? You bought that. How much did that cost you?' He was...

Sequels We'd Like To See & The Odds They Will Really Happen

November 20th, 2009 11:00am EST
Anchorman
Now that it looks as if the interminable "Saw" franchise has run out of gas after its sixth chapter, we can turn our attention to sequels that we'd really like to see, and what the odds are of them actually being produced.

ANCHORMAN 2: This is the biggie that most comedy fans would love to see. Star Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay have danced around the sequel for years, tantalizing fans with potential story ideas, fake titles and other tidbits, but nothing seems to be concrete. Still, the phenomenal popularity of the first film would make it a slam dunk, box-office smash. And, as ...

Movies That Did Not Live Up To Their Potential

March 3rd, 2009 10:39am EST
Star Wars Episode III
Nothing can be more frustrating than something not living up to its potential. Movies are especially guilty of this. There's something about watching a movie that was on to something but didn't quite make it that can stick with you. Watching them unfold feels akin to a runner screaming towards the finish line only to fall and break their ankle thirty feet short. Films like these fall apart for many reasons be it last minute changes by a studio, unnecessary plot twists, or just good old-fashioned incompetence. For whatever reason, these movies are bad-they just didn't have to be. Here's a fe...

Funny Film Cameos

Ben Stiller
A cameo used to refer to a famous person who made an appearance in a film as him or herself. Now actors play small parts as a character in a film for comic relief. Most cameos are non-credited due to the shortness of the screen time or because they are so famous they don't need a big credit. Some are publicity stunts. Others pay tribute to that actor's work in a similar role, but they are all for the most part hilarious. Following are 10 of film's funniest cameos in no particular order:

The Frat Pack: Pledging to Make Audiences Laugh

April 7th, 2008 2:00pm EDT
Will Ferrell
A majority of comedic films released over the past 10 years have fallen into either one of two categories: stupid with borderline inappropriate humor or stupid with completely inappropriate humor. Occasionally, a comedy comes along that doesn't quite fit either of these descriptions (i.e., Wedding Crashers, which is completely inappropriate but far from stupid). But these films are few and far between.

However, it is important to note that the word "stupid" is not meant to have a negative connotation here. True, it is sometimes more satisfying to watch a comedy based entirely on witty ...

On the night The Darjeeling Limited opens, Owen Wilson's suicide attempt makes him a Tenenbaum for life (Aquatic).

There is a place in every human psyche reserved for the dark, brooding thoughts associated with death. There is even a sleeping monster that may ponder what holding a dead man would be like, or what people would say at one's funeral, or what sort of effort it takes to kill oneself? For most this dark spot of the brain remains largely inactive, awaking in nightmares and freak daydreams, only to be quickly pushed out of the mind until the next time it is unwillingly rejuven...
