February 12th, 2015 9:26am EST
'The Americans' Season 3 Episode 3 Recap: Danger Continues To Mo
Previously - Phillip and Elizabeth are still at odds over Paige's potential recruitment into the family business. They tailed and photographed a group of CIA agents who are affiliated with the CIA's prescence in Afghanistan for further identification. Oh, and it's important to note that Elizabeth is still having a dental issue from when she got her face slammed off a car in the premiere.

Why Is 'The Americans' Star Keri Russell Television's Toughest Woman?

'The Americans' Star Keri Russell: Television's Toughest Woman
Is there an actress on television doing more than Keri Russell? As Elizabeth Jennings on FX's The Americans, she delivers a stunning portrayal of a woman who's devoted to her country, trying to be a good mother and partner, and getting into violent brawls with FBI agents. It's the role of a lifetime for any actress, and Keri is making it look easy.

We sat down with her at FX's Television Critics Association press tour to discuss the banner year she had in 2014 with the series and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, what Elizabeth's life looks like in season three, and what it's like for her to...

'The Americans' Season 3 Premiere Recap: Keri Russell Is Everyth
Previously - Claudia informed Elizabeth and Phillip that Paige will be groomed to be a spy like them. Elizabeth was for it, Phillip against. Stan was forced to betray Nina, and she was arrested by her embassy. Paige got heavily into her church, and protesting societal ills. Frank Gaad was annoying.

The recap's titled that because the Season premiere of The Americans opens with this audacious sequence wherein Keri Russell's steely yes sensitive KGB spy Elizabeth Jennings throws down with two FBI agents. One of the agents she battles is Richard Thomas' terminally annoying Frank Gaad. He gets...

'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' Review: Brilliant, Breathtaking And The Best Of The Franchise

July 13th, 2014 4:16am EDT
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Rarely is a sequel better than the original. Of course, there are exceptions, such as 'Godfather 2' and now 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.'

This film is absolutely fantastic on every level, starting with Andy Serkis as Caesar, the soulful, emotional, kind and fair ape that we met in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' which starred, James Franco.

Right off the bat, I have to say that Serkis is amazing. He gives such a beautiful, nuanced performance that we, as an audience, are able to feel everything that Caesar feels and thinks. The film, shot in 3D, is brilliantly directed by Matt Reeve...

The Americans Season 2 Keri Russell wigs main
The second season of FX's Russian-spies-undercover-in-the-80s drama The Americans has come to a close. And what a season! I won't go into specific spoilers here but last night's finale revealed who killed Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Phillip's (Matthew Rhys) fellow suburban spies way back in the premiere. And in other developments, Paige might be getting a whole different type of education next season. *shiver*

All due respect to talented thespian Keri Russell, but the real stars of the show are those hilarious wigs she wears for her undercover ops. To quote a number ("Wig In A Box") from...

January 30th, 2013 11:57am EST
The Americans
FX is bringing viewers back to the Cold War with their new original series The Americans, which is the channel's attempt at an espionage thriller. It's an ambitious attempt that should draw in spy buffs, but this freshman series has a few steps more to go before it completes its mission of winning over audiences.

A truly daring star experiments with her hair for a film role or just because she wants to mix it up. But not everyone in Hollywood is so adventurous (could you see Angelina Jolie opting for a pixie cut? Probably not.)

Over the weekend, Miley Cyrus shocked fans by chopping off her newly blonde hair. Fans berated her on Twitter for taking the chance, and she responded with comments such "feel so happy, pretty, and free."

It is certainly liberating for a famous woman who is identified with a certain look to switch it up. In 2010, "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson revealed her newly shorn lock...

Definition of a MILF, a mother I'd like to… well, everybody knows what it stands for. In the real world there are only a handful of MILFs dropping their kids off at daycare on their way to the salon, or bringing their babies to Gymboree in their dressed down attire of Juicy sweat suits.

In the Celebrity world it seems that any famous mom is a MILF. Some mothers even miraculously become hotter after they have their babies. It may be due to those good, famous genes they all seem to have, or the thousands of dollars they spend on trainers, dermatologists and stylists.
