British actor Daniel Kaluuya has launched legal action against London's police force over allegations he was assaulted by officers and falsely imprisoned.

Kaluuya, who has starred in Skins and Kick-Ass 2, claims he was singled out by Metropolitan Police officers because he is black when he was removed from a bus in Camden in 2011.

He was arrested on suspicion of being a drug dealer, but subsequently walked free due to a lack of evidence.

The 24 year old is now suing for $75,000 (£50,000) for "loss of liberty, personal injury, damage and humiliation". In the suit he claims officers pinned...

Controversial TV drama Skins has been canceled in the U.S.

MTV bosses came under fire from TV viewers and decency watchdogs when they revamped the hit British series for American audiences and debuted it in January.

A number of high profile advertisers pulled their promos over the fuss, but MTV bosses insisted they would stand by the show, which featured sex and drug-taking scenes.

But the show h...

"I speak in short-clipped sentences and keep my head very still," Eisenberg said. Samberg said: "I wear this sweatshirt and then I say, 'I'm Mark Zuckerberg.'"

Leave Remakes Alone! Part 1: Across The Pond

January 3rd, 2011 8:36pm EST
Star Trek
The remake. Shudder. Ick. Gross. Barf. There were something like 55 movie remakes in the works as of 2008, surely more now. Talk about hitting the bottom of the creative barrel. I mean, movie goers hate remakes *so* much they've stopped hating on sequels. And what's worse, most sequels stopped being bad.

As an aside, If you told someone ten years ago that Rocky VI would be one of the best in the series, they'd laugh all the way "Cop Land". Hit movies are now part of a vision for a continuing franchise, movies are made with a trilogy in mind and they're all pretty good. “Pirates Of the Cari...
