Seven Great Actors Who Excel In The Movies And On TV

Double Threats: 7 Great Actors Who Excel In The Movies And On Te
The hierarchy when it comes to acting in Hollywood has historically always placed more importance and gravitas on the work of actors who have appeared on the silver screen when compared to their TV counterparts.

Legendary actors who got their start on TV like Bill Murray (Saturday Night Live), Michael Douglas (The Streets of San Francisco) and Denzel Washington (St. Elsewhere) were only said to have "made it" as huge stars once they were able to transition into movies.

But a strange thing has happened over the last few years - mega movie stars are falling all over themselves to try and ge...

10 Ways to Fix 'New Girl's' Winston Bishop Problem

9/16/2014 2:30pm EDT
New Girl
“New Girl” is a show that I prize for its characterization. For example, Jess Day is much more complicated than the “adorkable” stereotype that Zooey Deschanel is often associated with, and Nick Miller is a bit of a slacker, but mainly because his ambitions do not fit the typical societal definition of success. So it is weird to say that there is a fundamental problem with one of the main characters, especially considering that that character – Winston Bishop – actually is as well-defined as the rest of the main cast. But for whatever reason, his storylines often feel disconnected from t...

Two screenwriters have filed suit against FOX and the producers behind New Girl for allegedly stealing the idea for the show.

Stephanie Counts and Shari Gold claim the proposed a series titled "Square One," based on "Stephanie’s real-life experience when she discovered her husband was having an affair, leading her to move into a three-man bachelor pad," the lawsuit obtained by Hollywood Reporter reads.

According to the lawsuit, the pilot script was extensively shopped around and at one point Zooey Deschanel was proposed as the lead.

Marisa Tomei wore this mustard, green, and scallop-patterned dress to the “Journey of a Dress” premiere. Let’s hope the next stop on the journey is the incinerator.

Lady Victoria Hervey wore this questionable cut-out dress. No, we don’t know who she is, either.

Kate Bosworth donned this ugly, glittery mess with odd folds going around her waist and a fan slapped on her shoulder.

Here’s a simple task for you. Go out on the street and ask a random person what they like most about Zooey Deschanel? Their answer, if they know of whom you are asking about, will be something positive.

Zooey is your girl next door and, in my opinion, America’s sweetheart. Weird thing is, everyone sees her that way.  Her demeanor is inviting and her quirky personality can strike up one heck of a conversation. But you see, there are quite a few actors in Hollywood that portray themselves as Zooey comes off. Maybe that’s it; they portray themselves whilst Zooey just is...Zooey.

Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies

Grown Ups 2
People tend to judge a movie by its cast. For example, when you see Adam Sandler on the poster of a new movie, you'll expect it to be a family comedy. We all know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but how can we not?

We at Starpulse would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our favorite actors and actresses who have been diagnosed with a severe case of typecastitis. Symptoms: playing a certain type of character for way too long, earning nicknames like “Hollywood’s bad girl,” and people being able to guess an entire movie’s plot-line just by seeing the actor’s face on ...

'New Girl' Season 2 Finale Recap: 'Elaine's Big Day'

5/16/2013 9:56am EDT
Elaine's Big Day
In the “New Girl” season finale, CeCe’s big day turned out to be an even bigger day for someone else. That, along with a few pranks, a frisky badger and the rise of a new love triangle, made for a satisfying end to a hilarious and upbeat sophomore season.

The day of CeCe’s wedding found Nick and Jess in a happy and joyous mood. The two spent much of their time flirting with one another, to the disproval of Jess’ dad (Rob Reiner) and the annoyance of the other roommates. Winston and Schmidt were particularly annoyed when a more grown-up Nick refused to take part in their silly hijinks, whic...

'New Girl' Recap: Romance Blooms On 'Winston's Birthday'

Winston's Birthday
Despite being titled “Winston’s Birthday,” the penultimate episode of the season had very little to do with the birthday boy. Instead the story focused on the romantic progress of three “New Girl” couples as the gang prepared to send CeCe down the aisle.

Jess and Nick

The morning after Jess and Nick’s special night started out very sweetly. Nick prepared an interesting yet slightly disgusting tray of breakfast goodies to serve to Jess in bed. It didn’t look edible, but it’s the thought that counts, right? Unfortunately the considerate gesture went unnoticed by Jess as the morning after tu...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

First up we have Pharrell Williams, wearing his best metropolis lumberjack outfit. If the light-wash jeans and butting his top button sans tie weren't bad enough, there's this really odd whiteboard section of his shirt that we just want to draw on. We're guessing it's emulating the front of a tuxedo, which makes it even worse given the rest of his outfit.

Zoe Saldana's outfit boldly goes where no one… really wants to go. The pi...

After a long spring hiatus, “New Girl” returned to Fox this week and found Jess and the gang reminiscing about their first times.

The episode began with Jess receiving an unexpected text from Teddy, the man who took her virginity. In the midst of explaining Teddy’s place in her life, Jess bet the others that her first time experience rivaled theirs in terms of embarrassment. The storytelling quickly became competitive, with each roommate illustrating what they believed to be the worst first time.

Jess’ story began at prom night, where she and her date attempted to get freaky to the musica...
