TV Veteran Matt Shakman Makes Film Directorial Debut With 'Cut B
Veteran TV director Matt Shakman is making his feature film helming debut with the thriller Cut Bank, which premiered in limited release this Friday. The thriller stars Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) as a mechanic who wants to get out of Cut Bank, Montana with his girlfriend (Teresa Palmer, I Am Number Four), but naturally it isn't as easy as packing up and leaving.

We spoke with Matt on Tuesday to ask him about making the leap from television to film and if he was able to bring anything from his small screen resume to his first big screen credit, which was one of his aspirations all al...

Goo Goo Dolls' John Rzeznik Joins Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beac
Goo Goo Dolls lead singer John Rzeznik knows how to write a hit song and play to a sold-out house, but not so much in the car racing department. He's learning, though, as one of the participants in this year's Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race. We caught up with John at practice to ask him how he got involved and how he was finding life behind the wheel.

"If I had known how terrifying it was going to be, I might have actually said I don't think so," he admitted. "But it's for charity, so it's good. It's fun. How many people get a chance to do something like this? It's a challenge, that's for sure....

Brett Davern On His Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrit
One of the major storylines in next month's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race is whether or not Brett Davern will be able to repeat as overall race winner. Considering that he's never finished lower than second place, we would not be betting against him.

We sat down with Brett at the recent practice session to discuss what he thinks his chances are, his already memorable history with the Pro/Celebrity Race, and the big milestone coming up in season five of MTV's Awkward, in which he stars as Jake Rosati.

Brett might be a celebrity, but in the three years he's been part of...

Our friends over at TruTV's Impractical Jokers are always busy, but right now they're really keeping their schedule booked. The fourth season of the show (which includes an important milestone!) is airing, they're about to headline multiple shows at Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Festival later this month, and they're still taking laughs around the country in their big yellow tour bus.

Somehow in the middle of all this, we caught up with Joe Gatto (pictured above, third from left, with his partners in crime James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano) to ask him how the Jokers are handling ...

You can't have a Pro/Celebrity Race without a professional race car driver, and this year that pro is 2012 NHRA Top Fuel World Champion Antron Brown, who sat down with us at practice to discuss what it means to be the sole full-time driver in the field - and how confused he is by having to make turns...
