London Boulevard
A South London gangster emerges from three years in prison and becomes a bodyguard for a famous actress, only to be sucked back into the shady underworld by a ruthless crime lord in the gritty crime drama "London Boulevard" starring Colin Farrell.

Mitchel (Farrell) served his time in Pentonville Prison. Now that he's a free man, he's determined to keep it that way. His resolve not to fall back on his criminal past is weakened, however, when his longtime friend Billy (Ben Chaplin) offers him a place to stay in exchange for help with a quick and dirty job.

But just as it seems like the pas...

Rhys Ifans Demands Filming Breaks To See Anna Friel

1/2/2012 7:30pm EST
Actor Rhys Ifans has negotiated a condition in his movie contracts to ensure he gets to see his girlfriend Anna Friel every three weeks during filming.

The Notting Hill star has been dating the Pushing Daisies actress since the beginning of 2011, following her split from David Thewlis.

Ifans is currently busy with film work, including the Spider-Man reboot, and is away from the couple's native Britain for long periods of time.

But he demands studio bosses include a clause in his contract ensuring he is given every third weekend off during shooting so he can spend some precious time with ...

Anna Friel Overpacked For Boyfriend's Camping Trip

Anna Friel
Actress Anna Friel was overprepared for a camping trip in her boyfriend Rhys Ifans' native Wales after taking a suitcase instead of a backpack.

The couple began dating after the Pushing Daisies star parted ways with David Thewlis last December and Ifans recently took his girlfriend for a country break.

Friel worried she would forget to include a vital piece of equipment, so she packed as many possessions as she could.

She tells Britain's Radio Times, "Instead of a rucksack I bought a suitcase! I didn't know what we'd need. And I learned that being out there with nothing was the importan...

Anna Friel: 'I Don't Have Two Nannies'

10/31/2011 1:19pm EDT
Anna Friel
Actress Anna Friel has denied reports she's recruited two nannies to look after her six-year-old daughter while she works.

The Pushing Daisies star attracted barbed comments from online critics earlier this year when she revealed she relies on outside help with the pressures of raising Gracie, her daughter with ex-boyfriend David Thewlis.

But now she's spoken out to silence the gossips, insisting rumors she employs two nannies at the same time were sparked by a misunderstood quote.

Friel tells Britain's Sunday Express, "I don't have two nannies. Let me put the record straight right no...

Review: 'Limitless' - Our 'Two Jews On Film' Have A Good Ride With This Sci-Fi Thriller!

3/13/2011 2:00pm EDT
'Limitless' directed by Neil Burger (Illusionist) and written by Leslie Dixon (Hairspray) is based on the novel 'Dark Fields' a riveting, high-concept thriller written by Alan Glynn.

Both the film and the book asks the question: What would you do if you could take a pill that makes you smarter - as in...beyond genius, smarter?

Well for Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) an unsuccessful writer with major writer's block, whose landlady is about to evict him, that question is a no-brainer. Eddie takes the pill of course. Not just once but over and over and over again. Not only does this top secr...

Anna Friel
Pushing Daisies star Anna Friel and Harry Potter actor David Thewlis have split after nine years together, according to U.K. reports.

The pair was rocked by allegations of an affair after Friel was photographed embracing Joseph Cross, her co-star in a London stage production of Breakfast At Tiffany's, in December 2009.

The Brits both downplayed the rumors, insisting Cross was Friel's close pal who was staying at the actress' home. They both kept their own properties throughout their romance.

However just a year later, the stars - who are parents to five-year-old daughter Gracie - have de...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

Land of the Lost
I'm ashamed to say I still haven't gotten a chance to see "Terminator Salvation," but it's my top priority to see it this week. I also need to get out and see "Drag Me to Hell," because I continue to hear nothing but good things about it.

This week is a big week for comedies, with four premiering. We have "Land of the Lost," "Away We Go," "The Hangover," and "My Life in Ruins." I'm very excited because I will be seeing an advanced screening of "The Hangover." I have high hopes that it will be very funny, but I'll let you know what I think after I see it.

Separated At Birth? Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

8/1/2008 8:45am EDT
Idina Menzel & Penelope Cruz
Ever hear the theory that everyone has a twin? Some believe that each and every person has a double somewhere on Earth. Whether that theory is true is debatable. However, it's uncanny how some celebrities resemble each other. Sometimes it's an obvious trait: similar hairstyle, body type or facial features. Other times it's more subtle: similar roles or names.

Whatever the reason, the following stars have something about them that makes them look like another famous somebody. And that's not always a good thing.

1.) Perhaps it's the enormous beer gut that makes this trio seem r...

Emmy Nominations Reaction: Who Was Snubbed, Who Shouldn't Be A Nominee

Neil Patrick Harris
With the writer's strike a distant memory and an exciting new fall season dead ahead, we're finally ready to celebrate TV again. And what better way than with a lavish awards show?

Yes, the Emmy nominations were revealed at dawn in Los Angeles Thursday morning in a delightful little ceremony that saw Neil Patrick Harris and Kristin Chenoweth squeeze about two-dozen jokes in between their reading off the teleprompter.

There were surprises leading to gasps from the press, and plenty of nominations they all saw coming. Newcomer "Mad Men" led the drama category with 16 nominations w...

TV Stars Who Deserve Emmy Nominations On July 17, Part 2

Alec Baldwin - 30 Rock
Enough drama, time to laugh! The Emmy nominations are upon us, two days away in fact, so it's time to round out our suggestions to The Academy's blue ribbon panel. In the final installment, the focus turns to comedy and the actors who make us laugh every week.

This category is far more loaded than the drama section with far fewer obvious mistakes on the ballot and a ton of strong performances from the men and the women (rather than watching the ladies struggle with substandard material from their mostly male counterparts. Yes, I will clamor for more female writers and directors every...

TV's Best Dressed Characters

Blair from Gossip Girl
If clothes play a big part in first impressions, then these characters have definitely left an imprint on our hearts and minds. Every week, they wow us with their stylish fashion ensembles and make us head for the nearest knock-off rack. Some of them look to the past for inspiration. Others mix and match today's trends with classic items. Whatever their fashion philosophy, all of them are some of today's best dressed TV characters.

A throwback to Jackie O, Bree's (Marcia Cross) style is prim, proper and conservative. If that sounds a lot ...

'Pushing Daisies' Season One: Redefining the Word 'Charming'

Pushing Daisies
My dear sweet Pushing Daisies, you left us far to soon. One might say the strike has caused you to be...pushing daisies! Oh that was clever. Bad puns aside, we're left without new episodes of one of this season's best new offerings. Even though it barely had time to hop off its training wheels, let's take a look at this modern-day fairy tale.

Wait, so Ned can make zombies?

Not exactly. Ned (Lee Pace) has the ability to bring the dead back to life. The catch is that if they are alive for more than one minute someone else dies in their place. Oh and if he touches them again they die...

Golden Globes Ceremony May Be Cancelled But We Still Have Our Predictions

1/8/2008 3:17pm EST
The writers' strike has officially infiltrated awards season. The Golden Globes have been reduced to a lackluster news conference. That means no best and worst dressed list. No boozy celebrities making a fool of themselves. All that remains is an hour-long meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with angry WGA picketers surrounding the premises.

So, until the Hollywood powers-that-be finally buckle down and give the writers what they want and deserve, we here at Starpulse are going to call the winners and losers. We looked at reviews, other expert predictions, viewer attitudes and who we ...

'Pushing Daisies' is Odd, But Ultimately Endearing

1/8/2008 10:29am EST
Pushing Daisies
It's Not 'CSI: Couer d'Couers'

In the current TV era, truly original shows don't appear all that often on the broadcast networks. If and when they do, they usually aren't around for very long. "Pushing Daisies," a quirky amalgamation of a fairytale and film noir, is the latest offbeat offering to bow on the Big Four. Comparatively speaking, it has done fairly well thus far.

"Daisies" comes from the creative mind of Bryan Fuller, whose unique body of work includes the odd "Wonderfalls" and darkly comedic "Dead Like Me." It is the story of a pie maker named Ned (Lee Pace), who as a...
