Director/comedian Scott Aukerman explains, "The White House came to us and really wanted to do it. They really wanted to get the word out about the Afford...

Ken Jeong would love to do another 'Hangover' movie.

The 44-year-old actor played flamboyant Chinese gangster Leslie Chow in the franchise's three films, and insists he would "do anything" to portray the character again, despite admitting it is unlikely there will be a fourth installment.

Boxer-turned-actor and entertainer Mike Tyson still dreams of owning tigers again after cuddling up to his favourite big cat when he was a super-rich sportsman.

He'd like to have another pet tiger, but his wife has insisted that any big cat he brings home will have to live apart from their kids.

The Hangover star says, "One day when I ever make any money... I'll have t...

'The Dictator' And 15 Other Beards That Steal Movies

May 16th, 2012 1:07pm EDT
Sacha Baron Cohen brings his trademark ridicu-shock humor to his new film "The Dictator," but it may be his beard that steals the show.

He plays Admiral General Aladeen, deposed dictator of the (fictional) Republic of Wadiya, who flees to the U.S. when his country converts to democracy. As a dictator, he's used to ruling with an iron fist, an incorrigible sense of righteous cruelty, and a thick, bushy beard that could house several terrified baby sparrows.

Aladeen may feel like a fish out of water in New York City, but he'd feel right at home among Hollywood's most magnificent beards of a...

Ed Helms
You can try coffee, Alka-Seltzer, or a Bloody Mary, but to recover from his "Hangover," actor Ed Helms likes to unwind playing Appalachian-style bluegrass music. While it may seem like a weird vanity project or attempt to give his pal Steve Martin a run for his money, Dr. Stu Price can actually pluck a mean banjo.

Ed Helms and the Lonesome Trio started as he and Oberlin College classmates Jacob Tilove and Ian Riggs began pickin' tunes for fun in their dorm, but now two decades later they're making it official as The Hollywood Reporter says the group will cut an actual bona fide album.
