'MasterChef's' Kerry: 'I've Settled Into The Edge'
Last week, Kerry Prince saw his MasterChef dreams come to an end. But the 31-year-old human resources representative from North Carolina was in good spirits as he spoke to Starpulse about his time in the FOX reality show's kitchen.

"The edge has to stay there. I love competition and part of that is the excitement of anticipation," he explained when we asked him if he ever settled into the competition. "So I guess you can say I've settled into the edge."

"The challenges so far have been strenuous at best! The clock is unforgiving!" he continued. "I would say the crab challenge has been the...

'Suits': Sarah Rafferty Dishes On 'Firmly Committed' Donna
Suits fans are abuzz about Donna Paulsen's tough decision to leave her boss and best friend Harvey Specter for his professional rival, Louis Litt. But the big change could also be big for the series, as pointed out by the woman behind Donna, the lovely Sarah Rafferty. We spoke to Sarah last week about what's going through Donna's head in season five - and if anything could convince her to return to Harvey.

"I am getting more understanding than I anticipated, so that's really interesting," she said of the fan reaction to last season's plot twist. "It's run the gamut from like people being v...

Premiering this Thursday, July 9 with an encore next week, RiffTrax Live: Sharknado 2 will feature Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett once again making fun of the franchise that seemingly refuses to die.

'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

7/1/2015 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 Fighting To The IndyCar Finish
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...

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...
