The Top 10 TV Shows That Should Be Brought Back, Rebooted Or Just Re-Run

October 5th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Miami Vice
TV remakes are either hit-or-miss, but with hollywood lacking many new ideas (seems like every other show is a crime drama or takes place in a hospital these days) we've thought of a few classic shows that we think would make the cut and stick around for a while -- if they're done correctly.

There are a number of old shows from the 70s and 80s that have been brought back in recent years, some with all new casts and edgier than their predecessors, and others featuring some of the original cast members. Others were revamped entirely, and some casting decisions killed a couple before they wer...

Liam Neeson’s 9 Most Badass Movie Moments

October 2nd, 2012 3:03pm EDT
Liam Neeson in Taken
Liam Neeson has played thoughtful and sensitive in movies like Kinsey, or romantic in Love Actually but we love him best when he's slinging swords or kicking butt.

Since he's reprising his role of ex-CIA man Bryan Mills in this week's rip-roaring sequel Taken 2, we thought we'd refresh your memory on just how big of a badass this 60-year-old Irishman really is before you watch him blow away Albanians for two hours.

Note: Due to badass violence, badass language, and general badassery, viewer discretion is advised.

Liam Neeson
Liam Neeson hopes his children decide against a career in acting, as he is convinced they would be under extra pressure because of their famous parents.

The A-Team star has two sons by his late actress wife Natasha Richardson, and he is eager for them to pursue a career away from the spotlight.

He tells Britain's Independent newspaper, "I hope not (that they don't take up acting), because for every one of me there's 10,000 that still wait tables or wash dishes."

"Also, I think there'd be more pressure put on them because they have my name and so more might be expected from them, which...

Plan For 'The A-Team' Sequel Doesn't Come Together

March 10th, 2011 4:18pm EST
CooperATeam300
Hannibal, B.A., Mad Murdock, & Faceman love it when a plan comes together, but what about when a plan utterly screws the pooch?

That's the unfortunate situation after the gleefully stupid-fun of last summer's TV-to-film adapation of "The A-Team" learned the harsh difference between a box-office explosion and a crash-and-burn.

Director Joe Carnahan assembled a knockout cast and kept the pyrotechnics flying with a genuinely cool take on how to do action sequences (crosscutting the planning with the actual execution), but with a $110 million-dollar budget vs. $177 million worldwide gross t...

Some Think 'Sesame Street' Twitter Post Had Gay Reference

October 26th, 2010 1:00pm EDT
Sesame Street
Back in June, Bert from the popular Sesame Street duo Bert and Ernie posted a seemingly-innocent entry on Twitter: "Bert: Ever notice how similar my hair is to Mr. T’s? The only difference is mine is a little more ‘mo,’ a little less ‘hawk.’"

"Mo" is considered slang for male homosexual within the gay community, and the post was made during Pride Month (as well as the release of The A-Team movie). Gay bloggers rejoiced that Bert was coming out of the closet, and once again the relationship between Bert and Ernie - who live and sleep in the same room - was called into question.

The girlfriend of pop superstar Justin Timberlake stars in the new "The A-Team" blockbuster, but she admits she worries about paying the bills because she can go months without receiving any movie offers.

Quinton Rampage Jackson
The A-Team star Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson doubts he will take on any more movie roles - because he makes more money as a mixed martial artist than as an actor.

The muscle man began his career fighting in Japan's combat sports scene before joining the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the U.S.

He stepped out of the ring after landing a high-profile role in the blockbuster, replacing Mr. T in the big-screen reboot of the 1980s series, but Jackson has no desire to further pursue acting - unless he's offered a bumper pay check for his next role.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "For what I get...

5 TV Shows That (Maybe?) Should Be Made Into Movies
Turning classic TV shows into big screen movies seems to be the current forte in Hollywood. Sometimes they work (The Brady Bunch Movie, Mission: Impossible, Charlie’s Angels). Oftentimes they don’t (Bewitched, The Dukes of Hazzard, I Spy, The Honeymooners). In honor of yet another classic TV show being made into a movie (The A Team hits theaters this Friday, June 11), here are five classic TV shows that should have their own big screen adaptations – with all new casts, of course – sometime in the near future. Maybe.
