Kristen Wiig & Will Ferrell To Star In 'Campy' Lifetime Movie 'A
Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell are co-starring in a new film together, and no it's not going to be a big-screen, blockbuster comedy. It's going to be a thriller that airs on Lifetime.

Normally, people groan when they hear about Lifetime films. But one starring Wiig and Ferrell? It sounds awesome.

The pair will play a successfull couple in the made-for-television film, which is expected to air in early summer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Their characters will care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes, "90210") under the pretense of adopting her baby. Of course, things don't go as ...

Check Out Kristen Wiig's Insane 'Chandelier' Grammy Dance Moves
With Sia performing at last night's Grammys, something weird was to be expected. Kinda like how Sia's normally seen in wearing black veils, giant mop wigs or paper bags where her face should be.

But with last night's performance of her hit song "Chandelier," Sia took "weird" and rocketed it off to a faraway dimension, populated only by bizarre dancing mannequins.

"Chandelier" began after a brief introduction by Shia LaBeouf (incoherent as always) and opened with regular Sia dance partner Maddie Ziegler and another woman in a room full of musty brown clutter.

You might have thought that s...

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!

Kim Basinger got rave reviews from other sites for wearing this 20s-style suit that would have looked awkward on a man attending a film premiere, let alone Kim Basinger. The dark red lipstick and slicked-back hair just add to the creepy flair - she looks like The Joker.

Perhaps Kristen Wiig's gown would be on the edge of good fashion at the premiere of some indie flick or even the Met Gala, but at the Anchorman 2 premiere it si...

Miley Cyrus
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!

Miley Cyrus actually covered herself for once, but I don't love those odd sleeves. They look like giant suction cups, or maybe from an outfit in a Dr. Seuss book.

Lisa Lampanelli looks like she lost some weight, which is great, but she also shaved the side of her head. Perhaps it's part of her Miley Cyrus impression?

If there's anything worse than animal print, it's animal print in colors not seen in nature. The ugly resul...

Kristen Wiig
Kristen Wiig has turned down a lucrative sequel to the hit comedy Bridesmaids, and she says the decision wasn't a hard one.

Wiig told Harper's Bazaar she and Bridesmaid writer Annie Mumolo were given the chance to start work on a sequel, and the two immediately turned it down. "It wasn't a hard decision. We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

MTV Movie Award Surprises: Can 'The Help' Beat 'Hunger Games?'

MTV Movie Award Surprises
The MTV Movie Awards have their finger on the pulse of 2011/2012 cinema with tons of nominations for The Hunger Games, Bridesmaids and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. If they’re really current, Hunger Games will sweep but there are a few interesting surprises here too.

The Help is a nominee for best picture. Maybe it’ll be the dark horse winner and make up for losing the Oscar? Only if Hunger Games and Bridesmaids split the vote. It’s interesting that MTV acknowledges the popular historical drama, perhaps doing its part for civil rights education.

For best male performance, he...
