Taylor Swift
British singer Ed Sheeran has defended his friend and tour partner Taylor Swift against persistent rumours surrounding her colourful love life, insisting the reports are often sensationalised.

The A Team hitmaker is currently touring the world with the country-turned-pop star and hates it when his pal is judged for her taste in men - as he is adamant the public's impression of her as a serial dater is wrong.

He tells America's OK! Magazine, "The rumour that she dates a lot of people is a misconception, because in the time that I've known her, which has been almost two years now, she has ...

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...

July 31st, 2010 9:30am EDT
Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel looked lovely in blue and pink following the "The A-Team" afterparty in London on Tuesday. What's her secret to staying slim and trim?

One of the reasons the actress looks so good is that she works out all the time. The 28-year-old star says exercising is a big part of her life, and she often does yoga, runs and swims to stay fit.

She told U.K. magazine Look: 'I've always been a physical person, so it's a big part of my life." She added, "It's who I am. I hike with my dogs, which keeps me clearheaded, and I mix yoga with lots of cardio circuit training."


Michelle Rodriguez Is Annoyed With All The Hollywood Remakes

July 31st, 2010 8:15am EDT
Michelle Rodriguez
Michelle Rodriguez is urging Hollywood bosses to come up with some new ideas because she's bored of seeing remakes and 1980s revivals hit cinemas.

Movie theatres have been bulging with big budget reboots in recent years, with new versions of "The A-Team" and "The Karate Kid" among 2010's most high profile offerings.

But the "Avatar" actress is adamant the current trend of re-imagining classic films and bringing 30-year-old ideas back to the big screen has grown tiresome.

She tells, "I think the industry needs to wake up and stop doing remakes because I'm kind of falling as...

Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson: 'I Make More Money Fighting'

July 29th, 2010 11:00am EDT
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...

Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel had a slight wardrobe malfunction when she flashed her black underwear through her red Giambattista Valli gown at "The A-Team" U.K. premiere in London on Tuesday.

This more than makes up for the underwhelming gown she wore to the film's premiere in Madrid on Monday.

Jessica stars in the upcoming film "Nailed" about a small town waitress who gets a nail accidentally lodged in her head, causing unpredictable behavior.

She will also star in "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" in which an introverted architect befriends a wisecracking young girl and agrees to help her build a raft...

Summer 2010 Is Disappointing For Film Lovers

June 11th, 2010 8:54am EDT
The Karate Kid
It looks like the summer of 2010 will be one moviegoers will soon want to forget. Many studios and filmmakers are already scratching their heads wondering why this summer (barely halfway over) is producing rather disappointing numbers at the box office.

Iron Man 2 and Shrek Forever After have made $291 million and $166 million respectively and are the only big-budget films that have come out during this crucial season to break even with their production budgets. Audiences’ clear love of Robert Downey Jr.’s cool superhero Tony Stark and the comedic storytelling-style have made this franchis...

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.

Happy Days: Although set in 1950s and 1960s America, this classic sitcom r...

Mr. T

The 58 year old played the original BA Baracus in the hit 1980s TV show but rejected a cameo role in the upcoming movie, starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper.

And after seeing a preview of the film, he admits he's shocked with how graphic it is.

Mr. T says, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore. It was too graphic for me. I'v...

June 4th, 2010 11:15am EDT
A-Team Van
The A-Team's Liam Neeson busted into premiere in the classic van last night, making an entrance suitable for the testosterone-fueled movie he's promoting. Even the giant tank carrying Sharlto Copley and Bradley Cooper to the red carpet couldn't upstage the 80's vehicular icon.

Neeson said on his part as Hannibal: "Just be physical, fight, run, say a couple of lines, chomp of cigars - it was cool!"

Bradley Cooper joked about his role, Face. "The curriculum for this guy was pretty intense." He says later "[My favorite part] is the guns. I probably shouldn't say it, but I really fell in ...

50 Cent Wanted Mr.T Role
Rapper 50 Cent auditioned for the upcoming A-Team movie remake - because he was determined to land the part made famous by '80s icon Mr.T.

Mr. T To Retires His Bling
A-Team star Mr. T has hung up his trademark gold chains for good, after witnessing the horror of Hurricane Katrina.

The actor - real name Laurence Tureaud - famously hung strings of gold around his neck on and off screen.

However, he retired the bling in 2005 out of respect for the victims of the natural disaster, which struck America's gulf coast, killing thousands.

Mr. T tells the New York Daily News, "As a Christian I said I would never wear my own gold again because of what happened with Hurricane Katrina. It would be a sin against God for me to wear my gold when so many peo...

October 27th, 2008 4:09pm EDT
Director John Singleton has pulled out of plans for a movie version of 1980s TV hit The A-Team, after the project was postponed, according to reports.

The Boyz n the Hood film maker had signed to direct the picture, which was scheduled for release in June 2009. But Daily Variety reports that Singleton canceled his contract when the film was moved back a year to 2010, so Fox movie bosses could concentrate on an Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel.

Former A-Team heavy Mr. T is taking on Dracula, dinosaurs and assorted monsters in a new comic book series - and it's not an April Fool's Day prank.

The first confirmed title of the new series is "Mr. T Versus Dracula."

Mr. T in the A-Team
Former A-Team star Mr. T once stunned a sick child's family by bringing him out of a coma - after doctors begged the actor for help.

The poorly kid fell unconscious in Detroit, Michigan in the mid-1980s - and the only physical movement he made was in response to hearing Mr. T's name.

And when the mohawked star was in town, he stopped by the hospital to visit the ill boy - with miraculous results.

He tells Britain's Empire magazine, "His family put toys around him and one of them was a Mr. T doll. And whenever my name came up, the boy moved his arm.
