And no one is more iconic, more admired and more revered for comedy candor then the legendary Prince of Pain himself Richard Lewis. Having a career that has spanned some forty-five years, Lewis has successfully brought his distinctive angst ridden humor to everything from legendary sta...

Suits
Has Louis Litt really left the building? After the events of last week's episode of Suits, it's hard to believe that the lawyer we loved to hate (and secretly loved) has fallen so far in season four. But there's still one more episode to go - tonight's midseason finale.

So we spoke to Louis himself, Rick Hoffman, on Wednesday morning to discuss filming the big moment in "Gone," what he thinks of the dynamics at Pearson Hardman, and how Louis is going to come back...right?

(SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up with last week's episode of Suits, and/or don't want to know absolutely anyth...

'Metal Gear Solid' Star David Hayter Goes Bad In 'Devil's Mile'
David Hayter is something of a cult hero in entertainment, between his writing credits on the superhero blockbusters X-Men, X2: X-Men United and Watchmen, and his years of voice work for Metal Gear Solid. What you might not know is that he started his career as a live-action actor (anyone else remember Guyver?). David's stepping back in front of the camera as the star of the new horror film Devil's Mile, and we had the chance to pick his brain about it this week.

"I still do a fair amount of acting, but it is primarily in voice-over," he explained. "I was very excited to do this role for a...

Many of us were fans of or even wanted to be the Green (later White) Ranger, as played by actor and mixed martial artist Jason David Frank. Jason has now been a part of the Power Rangers franchise for more than 20 years, and during San Diego Comic-Con he sat down with us for a chat about the longevity of his Ranger role.

"When I first booked Power Rangers, the [term] Power Ranger really, nobody really knew what that was," he reflected. "And I was only hired for a certain amount of episodes and I just d...

We caught up with writer and director Cory Krueckeberg from the film Getting Go, the GO Doc Project that just became available on DVD. While chatting, Cory shared what inspired the film, the references to Warhol, and those special moments between go-go dancer Matt Camp and co-star Tanner Cohen.

What inspired the film?

The inspiration to do an off-the-radar no-budget film started with the fact that my partner and I had a number of other projects in various stages of development, but we wanted to do something that we could raise a little bit of money for and jump right into. Our idea was ...
