Charlie Sheen Writes To President Obama Over 9/11

September 9th, 2009 8:39am EDT
Charlie Sheen Writes To Obama
Actor Charlie Sheen has written a letter to U.S. president Barack Obama requesting a meeting over his theories about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The day of September 11th, 2001 saw America hit by the worst terrorist atrocities in the country's history, including an attack in New York which killed almost 3,000 people when airliners destroyed the World Trade Center.

Sheen has always been outspoken about his views on the attacks, supporting a conspiracy theory that the U.S. government at the time defrauded the public with its official story about the incident. The star has now written t...

Learn More About SyFy's New Drama And 'BSG' Spinoff 'Caprica'

August 20th, 2009 10:07am EDT
Caprica
Long ago, in a popular culture period far, far away, to watch or read science fiction was synonymously tied to the then derogatory term of 'geek'. Now that stereotype has somewhat weakened. One of the many reasons for this change was the Ron Moore reimagining of 'Battlestar Galactica' in 2004. 'BSG' was a hit not just amongst the typical sci-fi fan base, as it is most commonly discussed as a space opera, but to more non-traditional fans. When 'Heroes' debuted on NBC it was a break in network format. Many questioned why it was not to air on the sister channel, then, Sci-Fi, and spurred d...

Has Will Ferrell's Comedy Gone The Way Of The Dinosaur?

June 12th, 2009 10:17am EDT
Will Ferrell
Once upon a time, I used to think Will Ferrell was the funniest man alive. I watched him religiously as Alex Trebek in the "Saturday Night Live" celebrity "Jeopardy" sketches, chuckling as he suffered through the shenanigans of Darrell Hammond's Sean Connery.

Ferrell's impressions on "SNL" and wacky roles in movies like "Old School" and "Anchorman" perpetually kept me laughing. His characters had this special zany quality to them that made them extremely quotable.

I personally idolized his ability to make people laugh, and I respected that a man who studied broadcast journalism...

The Top Five Songs (So Far) From Eminem

May 1st, 2009 10:34am EDT
Eminem
After an almost half a decade long gap in his discography, Eminem returns this month with his fourth solo release, Relapse (due to drop May 19). The first single off the album "We('re The Ones That) Made You" was underwhelming at best, featuring a parade of yesterday's pop culture icons, like Sarah Palin and Britney Spears and K-Fed. This only begged the question of whether or not Eminem could still be relevant after such a long time away and within an industry that changed so drastically even just within the last year. The Detroit rapper who was once known for challenging himself with new ...

Will Forte Of 'Saturday Night Live' Talks To Starpulse

April 28th, 2009 12:03pm EDT
Will Forte
"It's a strange transformation that he goes through when he puts a moustache on, it's very funny. Seriously, It's like automatic douchebag. It's crazy." - Kenan Thompson speaking to Starpulse about his "SNL" and "Sit Down, Shut Up" co-star Will Forte's love for fake moustaches in a yet to be published interview.

Mike: You were a history major at UCLA. How do you go from a history major to joining the Groundlings to where you're at now?

Will: Well, when I was trying to figure out my major, my dad said, "You know, it doesn't really matter what you major in", I didn...

Michael J. Fox Praises Obama For Lifting Stem Cell Ban

March 9th, 2009 12:49pm EDT
Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox has heaped praised on President Barack Obama for lifting an eight-year federal funding ban on stem cell research.

Fox has been a strong advocate of embryonic stem cell studies since publicly disclosing his battle with Parkinson's disease in 1998, seven years after his diagnosis. He founded the Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000, which has since become the largest private funder in the U.S. of medical research into the disease.

And he's given a nod to Obama, who will sign an executive order on Monday lifting limits placed by the administration of former President Ge...

The Edge Protested Bono's Meeting With George W. Bush

February 19th, 2009 3:45pm EST
U2
U2 rocker The Edge tried to convince frontman Bono not to meet former U.S. President George W. Bush to discuss poverty in Africa - because it was an "uncool" image for the band.

The guitarist knew the Beautiful Day singer would have "custard pies" thrown at him for holding talks with the controversial Republican in a bid to ease the plight of less economically developed nations.

But he is glad Bono ignored his advice - because he proved his critics wrong. The Edge, real name David Evans, tells music magazine NME, "Hanging out with George W. Bush - which he knew was uncool, deeply ...

Lily Allen Gets Naughty At 'Secret Show'

February 12th, 2009 6:00pm EST
Lily Allen
Lily Allen stunned fans at an online album launch party in New York on Tuesday, yelling profanities from the stage and talking candidly about sex. The bawdy Brit was promoting her new release, It's Not Me, It's You, at the Bowery Ballroom as part of MySpace.com's Secret Show series.

Sipping white wine, the "Smile" singer kicked off the gig by poking fun at the Bowery crowd, stating, "You've been illegally downloading, you f---ers!" before launching into her new anti-George W. Bush anthem "F--- You" and urging fans to sing along with the chorus: "F--- you, f--- you very, very much."

Chris Parnell Chats About SNL, '30 Rock,' Lindsay Lohan, Will Ferrell & More

February 12th, 2009 11:32am EST
Chris Parnell
In the circles I run in, "Ooh, now that's a hot lead" is something I hear quoted by my friends quite often, really, for any reason or occasion. It's just one of those things. Of course, this is one of Chris Parnell's lines from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Naturally, I was (way too) excited to share this fact with Chris and, well, he (ahem) had no idea what I was talking about -- at least at first.

Regardless, Chris was nice enough to join me the day after his birthday and discuss everything from his time on Saturday Night Live, helping put YouTube on the map with "Lazy Sund...

The Bush Administration: A Musical Tribute

January 14th, 2009 9:21am EST
George W. Bush
It's been a long eight years for America…longer for some than others (see New Orleans). Luckily, we have some very creative musical artists out there suffering along with us. For them, the first amendment is expressed through their music.

These 30 selections may relate to the War in Iraq, the Katrina debacle, our shaky mantle as "The Greatest Country In The World," our desire to have a President smarter than us (see "nucular"), and the list goes on.

As we all hopefully look forward to our next President, let's take one last look back (and good-bye) at George W. Bush, and some so...

Mickey Rourke Supports President Bush

Mickey Rourke
Actor Mickey Rourke sympathizes with U.S. President George W. Bush - insisting he doesn't know how any politician could have successfully navigated America after the 9/11 attacks on New York.

The Hollywood tough-guy spoke out about his political views in a candid interview with Britain's GQ magazine, and admits he doesn't understand why so many people blame Bush for a string of world issues - including Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism in the West.

And the actor, who claims he didn't follow last year's historic U.S. election battle between Barack Obama and John McCain, urges ...

10 Things We're Thankful For This Year - What Are You Thankful For?

Stephen COlbert
Before we fall into the annual Thanksgiving tryptophan coma, we'd like to take a few minutes to give thanks for some of the best pop cultural presents received in 2008.

Paul Rudd

This year, the ubiquitous, sexy-silly actor showed up in “Over Her Dead Body,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “Role Models,” guested on HBO’s “Little Britain USA,” and hosted “Saturday Night Live.” Add to that the near-constant airings of “Knocked Up” on HBO and “Clueless” on every other channel, and it’s virtually impossible to get away from the guy…which is just how we like it!

Kid Rock Will Back Obama's Presidency

Republican supporter Kid Rock has voiced his backing for U.S. President-elect Barack Obama - declaring the Democrat's election win as "a great thing for black people."

The All Summer Long rocker, who had previously pledged his allegiance to President George W. Bush, insists he is happy to see Obama make history as the first African-American to become the head of state. And he hopes the Illinois senator's victory at the polls earlier this month will change the world's view of America as a "racist" nation.

Five Most Overrated & Underrated Political Films

November 14th, 2008 9:57am EST
W
We just went through the most fascinating and compelling election season ever in the television age. A lot of people are glad it's over, but there are those who simply can't get enough of the entertainment that is politics.

Unfortunately for the latter group, the only politics on TV right now involves Sarah Palin making the rounds and discussing the matters of a state with a population density that makes the Sahara Desert look like mid-town Manhattan. In other words, it's a snoozer.

So the last respite for these political junkies is the political movie. But which to choose? Th...

Actor and Parkinson's Disease sufferer Michael J. Fox is hopeful U.S. President-elect Barack Obama will speed up the race for a cure for what ails him and millions of others. Obama aides have hinted the Democrat will overturn strict restrictions on stem-cell research imposed by George W. Bush.

If medical researchers are allowed to experiment with embryonic stem cells, they believe they can make great strides towards finding cures for diseases like Parkinson's, and helping people with spinal injuries walk again.

Political humor has always been a mainstay of stand-up, late night, and sitcom writers. And the ratings always skyrocket in the year of a Presidential election, thanks to gaffes and guest appearances (and sometimes we’re lucky enough to have a few candidates with a sense of humor).

With every presidential race determined to be the most important of all, it's imperative that we as Americans take a step back and laugh at the process of selecting our President - as well as the "characters" seeking that office.

So who offers the best fodder for the next four years? Let’s take a look:...

Rocker John Mellencamp is joining the U.S. presidential debate - by recording a radio ad in his native Indiana, urging the public to vote for Democrat Barack Obama.

Indiana is traditionally a Republican state, but recent poll figures show Obama has gained ground on his rival Senator John McCain - and stands a chance of stealing it for the Democrats. And Mellencamp wants to help. In a radio commercial now airing, Mellencamp criticizes current president George W. Bush's two terms in office - and insists electing McCain won't bring about change.

Josh Brolin insists America's current economic crisis is good for him because he's making big bucks from his sideline career as a stock broker.
