Jeffrey Dean Morgan And Hilarie Burton Engaged?

3/7/2012 5:19pm EST
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is engaged to wed his actress girlfriend Hilarie Burton, according to a new report.

The private couple began dating in 2009 and welcomed its first child, son Gus, in March, 2010 - although they managed to keep the baby news secret for over two months and only opened up about the tot's birth in November.

Now, Star magazine reports Morgan has proposed to Burton, who was spotted wearing a diamond sparkler on her ring finger while attending the Film Independent Spirit Awards last month.

A source tells the publication, "They are engaged."


'White Collar' Recap: 'Judgment Day' (3.16)

2/28/2012 11:09pm EST
White Collar
Can you believe it's the White Collar third-season finale already? And are you ready for the answer as to whether or not Neal will be a free man? Well, here we go...

While we open with Neal getting the particulars on the commutation hearing process in a room with no decor (because all important hearings on TV seem to happen in big, open rooms with no decor and are run by unlikable, interchangeable bureaucrats), Peter is stunned to hear that his pal Kramer (Beau Bridges) doesn't just have his sights set on luring Diana to Washington. He wants Neal there, too. Here I think, "Dude, ge...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Pulling Strings' (3.14)

2/7/2012 11:04pm EST
White Collar
This week's White Collar brings back some absent characters, introduces some new ones, and mixes them together to create a lackluster outing.

Elizabeth's birthday is coming up, and Peter wants the weekend off "unless someone dies or Neal does something big. Maybe not even if someone dies." He's leaving Diana in charge, even as Diana reveals that she's engaged to her girlfriend Christie. Sounds like everything is going grand, right? Well, until we start talking about a stolen Stradivarius violin...and Neal's now ex-girlfriend Sara Ellis, who thinks her boss Bryan (Bailey Chase) is t...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Neighborhood Watch' (3.13)

1/31/2012 11:02pm EST
White Collar
This just isn't Elizabeth Burke's season.

This week's White Collar has Mrs. Suit overhearing plans for a robbery thanks to a scanner Peter left at home. When nothing materializes, Peter and Neal are skeptical, but (of course) Mozzie is more receptive. He and Elizabeth monitor the scanner until they hear the same voices again...right across the street from the Burke home. The new neighbors are Ben (Matt Bomer's Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello) and Rebecca Ryan (former Criminal Minds star Lola Glaudini).

Elizabeth coerces Rebecca into inviting her and Peter over for dinner. Plus, ...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Upper West Side Story' (3.12)

1/24/2012 11:03pm EST
White Collar
Oh, White Collar. I love you for your ridiculous charm.

The case of the week sees Neal and Peter approached about potential embezzlement at upper-crust Manhattan Prep. The lead suspect is Andy Woods (Dylan Baker, who's played a bad guy so often we should just assume he's the villain every time he shows up), who's in charge of the school's endowment and may have cartel ties. To check him out, our dynamic duo goes undercover, which leads to plenty of entertaining shenanigans.

Just minutes after their arrival, Neal gets mistaken for a substitute teacher, but rolls with it when he s...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Checkmate' (3.11)

1/17/2012 11:05pm EST
White Collar
White Collar is back, and we answer the question: where is Elizabeth Burke?

"Checkmate" picks up immediately from the midseason finale, with Mrs. Burke in the hands of now very familiar bad guy Matthew Keller (Ross McCall), who wants to exchange her for the hidden treasure. "You could've walked away," Peter tells Neal angrily, and a recalcitrant Neal admits that "I should be paying for it, not Elizabeth."

Yet when Neal brings Peter to the warehouse where the treasure was, he finds that Mozzie has moved all of it on his own. This means that in order to find Elizabeth, our dynamic d...

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012
It's hard to believe for many of us the 1982 was 30 years ago. In that year, Ronald Reagan was President, Joe Montana was the Superbowl XVI MVP and the space shuttle Columbia made its first mission.

In movies, E.T., Tootsie and Gandhi ruled the box office while Chariots of Fire took best picture at the Academy Awards that year. Also taking home Oscar gold for best actor and actress in 1982 respectively were Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda for On Golden Pond. In music Michael Jackson released Thriller which sold more than 25 million copies, becoming the biggest selling album in history.


Jeffrey Dean Morgan: 'Fatherhood Is Spectacular'

11/16/2011 11:16am EST
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Jeffrey Dean Morgan has finally opened up about the arrival of his baby son, more than 18 months after his actress girlfriend Hilarie Burton gave birth.

The couple became proud parents to a little boy last March, but kept the news secret for over two months.

They refused to divulge the tot's name in a bid to "protect" his privacy, but now Morgan has lifted the lid on life with the toddler, who is called Gus.

The actor says, "He just said 'no' for the first time, which is f**ked up. In one week it's just like, 'No, no, no!' But everything is a first. It's been spectacular."

'White Collar' 3.06 'Scott Free' Review

7/12/2011 10:03pm EDT
White Collar
Deja vu is the theme of this week's White Collar, and it works - though perhaps not as well as it could have.

When the FBI starts tracking another wily con artist, Scott Rivers (Hutch Dano), everything feels a little familiar - but that's the point. For the characters, and for the audience, it's impossible not to hold the mirror up and draw parallels between Scott's present and Neal's past. Things get complicated when there's an attempt on Scott's life early on, making him equal parts criminal and victim. It's a great concept for an episode, one rife with opportunities for characte...

'White Collar' 3.01 'On Guard' Review

6/7/2011 10:10pm EDT
White Collar
White Collar was a favorite of mine in its first season and parts of the second, but I have to admit that by the end of season two, the shine had started to come off the show for me. As a result, I became very interested in what season three would be - would the show win me back or would we break up?

The third-season premiere starts off in an awkward but not entirely unexpected place, with Neal and Mozzie trying to make a quick escape from Peter and Diana. Four days earlier, Neal's being polygraphed regarding the events of the second-season finale. (I've been polygraphed; this is...

'White Collar' 2.15 'Power Play' Recap and Review

3/2/2011 6:09am EST
White Collar
Hands up: how many people were eagerly awaiting this week's White Collar?

Yep, me too.

And it certainly delivered on the comedy front, even if the actual plot was nothing new.

Elizabeth is setting up for an event, when in walks the very grumpy Andrew Stanzler (Richard Schiff, seeming like he's channeling Toby Ziegler from The West Wing). He leaves just as quickly, thankfully. El is soon approached by Stanzler's assistant Brooke, who asks her about her husband working for the FBI.

"How's the world's most interesting evil man?" Peter asks El when she comes home. El explains that Broo...

'White Collar' Makes Hilarie Burton A Regular

2/8/2011 2:25pm EST
White Collar
White Collar promoted someone to series regular - but unfortunately, it wasn't Sharif Atkins.

According to an early report from TVLine, the show has elected to make Hilarie Burton a regular in the upcoming third season (for which it was renewed in September). No details about the decision, or how they plan on utilizing her character, insurance investigator Sara Ellis, are yet available.

I've never been a fan of the character, whom I've felt is redundant due to the existence of Alex Hunter (Gloria Votsis), another foil for Matt Bomer's Neal Caffrey with whom he routinely spars. Nor ...

Hilarie Burton Hush Hush Over Baby Details

8/3/2010 12:30am EDT
Hilarie Burton
Actress Hilarie Burton is refusing to divulge details about the baby boy she welcomed with boyfriend Jeffrey Dean Morgan earlier this year because she wants to do all she can to "protect" his privacy.

The former "One Tree Hill" star, 28, began dating "Watchmen" star Morgan, 44, last year but the private couple managed to keep the romance under wraps and tabloid reports in May revealed the pair had quietly become parents.

Burton has now confirmed the happy news, telling the Associated Press, "(We are) really happy, and we're a very good team. And we got very lucky that our family is what i...

What will you be doing tonight at 9 PM EST? Starpulse suggests turning on USA and watching the second season premiere of their hit show White Collar. USA brought Starpulse behind the scenes for a day to meet the cast, ask them about what's coming ahead, and see the sets in person.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan & Hilarie Burton Had A Baby!

Jeffrey Dean Morgan &  Hilarie Burton
"Watchmen" star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been hiding a big secret from film fans - he's a new dad.

The 44 year old and his girlfriend, former "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton, welcomed a baby boy to the world earlier this year, according to tabloid reports.

The private couple managed to keep the romance under wraps after becoming an item last year, but Us Weekly magazine has uncovered the facts.

A source tells the publication, "Their relationship moved really quickly."

Burton divorced "One Tree Hill" assistant director Ian Prange in 2008 and Morgan discovered he was a first-time fathe...

'One Tree Hill' Season Finale

5/21/2009 4:23pm EDT
One Tree Hill
The season-six finale of "One Tree Hill" aired last Monday night and featured an end to an era. Chad Michael Murray ("Lucas") and Hilarie Burton ("Peyton") recently confirmed they would not be returning next season. Could this be it for the show? Will the producers decide to cancel next season? Despite the disappointment, the writers at least gave each of the cast of characters a positive spin in the end.

Brooke's lack of relationship with her mother continued, as Victoria failed to give Brooke Julian's previous message. As the episode neared the end, her Victoria made a surprising...

One Tree Hill
As "One Tree Hill" sadly winds down its season, there's nothing like a wedding to spice up the atmosphere. While this has not been their best season by far, it's always disappointing to have to endure another long hiatus before the ensuing premiere. As promised, the results from last week's predictions are in! See where I was spot on and where I went completely wrong! Were your predictions correct?

Last Week's Prediction: Last week, I believed Peyton would be the heroine and call up Julian to invite him to the wedding, but I was wrong. The hero-to-be ended up bein...

'One Tree Hill': Future Predictions

One Tree Hill
In light of the exciting, yet surprising turnout of this year's Kentucky Derby, it would suffice to make a few of my own predictions. While many may focus on the past and present, it's time to look from instead the present to the future. This week's airing of "One Tree Hill" provided us with the usual lackluster performances from this season's Tree Hill bunch. Based on current storylines and upcoming previews, check out this season's final predictions by yours truly! Let's see how correct (or wrong) these turn out to be! What are your predictions?

'One Tree Hill' Mother Of All Dreams

4/28/2009 4:49pm EDT
One Tree Hill
With only several episodes left in the season, "One Tree Hill" focused on the same storylines with small twists to spark some drama. It's pretty obvious at this point that fans will witness Peyton's life in danger in three weeks. Until then, fans must turn to despondent Brooke, determined Nathan and concerned Lucas to spice up the show.

Since Vampire Victoria's most recent cameo, fans have been treated to Bitter Brook. Along with Sam and Victoria's budding relationship came Brooke's rancid attitude. Jealous, hurt and livid, Brooke continued to spew her candid, yet insulting commen...

'One Tree Hill' Recap: 'Letting Go'

4/1/2009 10:11am EDT
One Tree Hill
A fiction-based show is usually given a title to represent the theme of that week's episode. It can be metaphorical, symbolic or simply literal. Monday night's episode of "One Tree Hill" featured a label entitled "Letting Go." But which storyline or scenario could this have referred to?

Despite fears of the impending baby and Peyton's health, Lucas treated Jamie and Nathan to a day at Keith's old body shop. Now owned and remolded by a different company, it was sad to see the place devoid of Keith and his original auto body shop name. While Jamie bounced excitedly around the shop...

'One Tree Hill' Recap: Game Over

One Tree Hill
When one thinks of the word "over," what comes to mind? Maybe a parent who's celebrating an "Over the Hill" birthday, a friend who finally was able to overcome an obstacle, a leadership position that reigns over someone or maybe that delicious apple turnover you had this morning.

On Monday night's episode of One Tree Hill, the community of Tree Hill found themselves closing chapters to parts of their lives that left dramatic imprints in their hearts and that held such importance and meaning in their world. Once it all came crashing down, the game was over for many.

After months...

'One Tree Hill' Serves Up A Lame Duck

3/20/2009 9:56am EDT
One Tree Hill
After nearly a two-month hiatus (who else is tired of the random breaks this show takes?), "One Tree Hill" graced our television screens once again. Just in time for an early St. Patrick's Day celebration, the second half of the season gave no reason to raise our glasses in a toast.

Lame. Expecting the show to begin with a few of its typical "get more bang for your buck" moments, I was horrified to find myself actually semi-bored! Too much time was spent on Lucas and Peyton's baby situation. While I think it's extremely sad this couple has yet another problem to trudge through, i...

One Tree Hill
It's almost hard to believe more than four years has passed since our favorite Tree Hill days. Those days introduced us to the passion of Brooke, the heartache of Peyton and the love of Lucas. They filled our voids with excitement and allowed us a way to escape to another dimension -- well maybe not another dimension, but Tree Hill, North Carolina worked just fine.

Monday night's episode of "One Tree Hill" launched the ever-anticipated auditions for Lucas' movie, An Unkindness of Ravens. With Reese now on board as Director, all that was left to do was cast the right characters to po...

'One Tree Hill' Recap: Stale Storylines

One Tree Hill
Not long after the Brooke-beater dramatic arrest, the following "One Tree Hill" storylines seem to have something more in common with two-week old bread than elapsed time: a stale taste.

Stale story #1: Mia and Chase's Relationship.

I admit, I like this new couple as much as the rest of us, but honestly, where did it come from? Chase decides to help out Owen at Tric by picking up his shift, only to find out he has no bartending experience. Why would Mia, an underage musician, know anything about making a Long Island Ice Tea? Sure, she's probably had a few drinks here and t...

One Tree Hill
Last night's "One Tree Hill" may not have been the second installment of serial killer drama, but it did feature candid moments at their finest. The second episode of the New Year drew upon three exciting confessions from three very different people. Peyton reveals her pregnancy to her best friend, Julian confesses his feelings and Millie faces the consequences because of her drunk actions.

Here's a complete breakdown of last night's episode:


A quick recap of last week's episode flashes before our eyes. A mini-thriller that evolved into a happy ending summarizes what we...

One Tree Hill
During "One Tree Hill's" month long holiday hiatus, fans were kept in the dark about the fate of several characters. Peyton feared she had cancer, Sam ran away from home, Nathan had no basketball job and Millie was about to lose her virginity - but not to Mouth. Could all of these scenarios be true, or would they be just another dramatic ruse instigated by the OTH writers to keep us on the edge of our seats?

Monday night's debut episode of the New Year opened to a sobbing Peyton on the phone with Lucas. After several insinuations that she had cancer, Peyton broke the news to her fia...

One Tree Hill
Monday night's episode of "One Tree Hill" may not have fit into the context of the current storyline, but it definitely provided fans with a glimpse into the writing style of Chad Michael Murray. Whether or not fans loved it or not, the 67-year-old flash to the past introduced avid OTH fans to another world devoid of the usual drama and old antics seen each week. The unique spin on familiar characters and their lives arrived as a welcomed change to break up the familiar pace fans had been used to for several years.

As Casablanca streamed from his TV, Lucas Scott worked on writing hi...

One Tree Hill
A typical episode of "One Tree Hill" contains elements of humor, grief and joy all combining to create the storyline fans have grown to love for nearly six seasons. Just in time for Veteran's Day, Monday night's episode featured a spectacular USO show in memory of those who have fought in war as well as those who continue to protect our nation to this day.

Since Peyton and her marine brother, Derek, were both deceived by their father, Peyton took it upon herself to commemorate veterans by hosting a USO show at the Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina. F...

A star-studded group of artists from rock, pop, hip-hop and beyond are lined up to commemorate TRL with their memories, performances, and more as MTV's "Total Finale Live" celebration grows ever closer.
