'Suits' Star Rick Hoffman On Season 5: Louis 'Feels Great'
Gabriel Macht told us last week how Harvey Specter is dealing with the new season of Suits, so now it's time to get Louis Litt's side of the story. During our recent trip to the USA show's Toronto set, we sat down with Rick Hoffman to discuss how Louis feels about the Donna situation and his own continuing saga.

"He feels great. His name's on the wall. He's got Donna," Rick explained, but that doesn't mean that Louis is incapable of understanding how much her departure affects her and Harvey.

"I think he feels for Harvey. And has somewhat of an understanding because he knows how valuable ...

Future Filmmakers To Watch For – Writer/Director Christopher Soren Kelly

July 1st, 2015 10:45am EDT
Chris
Remember the first time you experienced a flick helmed by a true visual stylist? Early films from talents like David Fincher (via "The Game!"), The Wachowski Bros. (all hail "Bound!"), David Lynch ("Blue Velvet" is his masterwork!) and Tom Tykwer (does it get better then "Run Lola Run!") - directors who understood film was a visual medium and took full eye candy advantage? Always on the lookout for work that brings back that magic to the movies, I recently came across a short film at this year’s Dances With Films Festival 2015 from a filmmaker that made me take pause. Steeped in style, b...

Scott Dixon is doing it again. With just five races left in the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season, the driver they call "The Iceman" is calmly working his way through the competition, remaining a firm third in the standings seemingly without breaking a sweat.

Almost three months after our feature chat, we caught up with Scott just prior to last weekend's IndyCar race at Fontana to check back in on his season and discuss a few of the subjects circulating around the league.

"I think towards the end of the season, the only thing that really changes is that you kind of look at the points a l...

'MasterChef's' Veronica: 'My View Of The World Grew Exponentiall
Last week, MasterChef said goodbye to its oldest competitor as Florida beauty consultant Veronica Cili hung up her apron. But there are no hard feelings; the 58-year-old spoke to Starpulse to tell us how much she appreciated her competitive cooking experience.

"Competitive cooking is a challenge all on it’s own," Veronica said. "It’s like being in a boxing ring but the loser is sent home or as in The Hunger Games - poof- you’re a puff of smoke in the sky."

"The biggest and most memorable challenge for all of us, I think, was when we were shocked to see twenty more competitors in the Maste...

Bonnie Kathleen Ryan was introduced last week as Dr. Roz, the new medical examiner working alongside Justin Burnside (Jamie McShane). Starpulse spoke to her last week about what it's like to join the show, and getting to know her a little bit better.

"There may or may not be some more bodies that show up," she teased, and while we can't give away too much more of the Murder mystery, we can say that her arrival doesn't mean the last of Dr. Burnside. "We are a team," Bonnie explained. "Th...

The 30-year-old Los Angeles restaurant manager was one of two home cooks who saved the Blue Team during their Las Vegas pressure test, but the strategizing of their team captain sent him into the pressure test and he was one step away from elimination.

While he caught his breath, Christopher spoke with us about dealing with the pressure of the high-stakes cooking competition and what he's taken away from Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Christina Tosi so far.

"I just want to show that you can do great things if you work ...
