Veteran actor Jeff Goldblum is a married man again after exchanging vows with his new fiancee on Saturday (08Nov14).
The Jurassic Park star proposed to actress/gymnast Emilie Livingston in July (14), while on vacation in Hawaii, and they walked down the aisle at Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont venue over the weekend.
Goldblum's representative has confirmed the news to UsMagazine.com, while a source tells the publication, "It was a night filled with love, music, and lots of laughs."
The actor, who, at 62, is 31 years older than Livingston, treated guests to a piano performance at the reception and also serenaded his blushing bride. The couple began dating in 2011.
The marriage is Goldblum's third - he was previously wed to his Silverado co-star Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis, who featured in his 1986 sci-fi horror The Fly.
Newly-engaged actor Jeff Goldblum is so keen to become a dad at 61 he has already started picking out baby names. The Jurassic Park star, who fronts his own jazz band, proposed to his actress/gymnast girlfriend Emilie Livingston in July (14) and he's already making family plans.
During an appearance on U.S. talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday (09Sep14), he said, "I'm looking for names for babies, possible babies. Well, it (becoming a dad) may (happen)... It probably jinxes it to talk about it, but I like thinking of names and Goldblum is such a kind of particular, challenging name, sound-wise.
"I have two names... Coda... Coda Goldblum, it's a musical term... The other one is Mingus...(after) Charles Mingus, who was a wonderful jazz player."
Goldblum decided to gauge the popularity of his chosen names by having the studio audience clap if they approved, but he was given cause to rethink the names after they both fell flat with fans.
His upcoming marriage to Livingston, who is 30 years younger than actor, will be Goldblum's third - he was previously wed to his Silverado co-star Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis, who featured in his 1986 sci-fi horror The Fly.
San Diego Comic-Con: the annual gathering of comic book nerds, blockbuster action movie fans and the slightly terrifying people who still watch Supernatural religiously. It's the biggest pop culture event of the year, a time when studios bring the biggest and most shriek-inducing stars together to unveil new projects and showcase the exciting things fans will eventually be camped out all night for. And even though not all of us are lucky enough to experience Comic-Con in person, that doesn't mean we don't deserve to get all the up-to-the-minute news, reports and surprises. Since we here at Hollywood.com don't want you to miss out on all the excitement happening in Hall H or the surprises being unveiled over the weekend, we're running down the biggest news to come out of San Diego during the convention to ensure you can stay on top of everything, whether you're stuck in the office or waiting in line for another sold out panel.
Guess Who's Set For a Bloody ReturnIt’s difficult to imagine anyone bouncing back from the tense bloodbath that capped off the second season of Hannibal, but Bryan Fuller doesn’t want you to worry about the state of your favorite characters, because several of them made it out of there – although not all of them made it out alive. Deadline reports that Raul Esparza’s Dr. Chilton did, however, and he will appear next season, presumably to get revenge for being shot in the face. Eddie Izzard and Kacey Rohl will also be making an appearance or two, but while he did say the former would only pop up in flashbacks, he declined to reveal whether Abigail is still in one piece. (The series also unveiled the second season blooper reel, which is exactly as delightful as you’d expect.)
Advanced Television Resurrection Now that Community’s sixth season is under way, it’s time to ask the most important question of all: When are the Greendale Seven coming back? At a panel Thursday night – appropriately titled “Communty: REBORN” – show runner Dan Harmon and the cast revealed that fans should see the Study Group back in action sometime after Christmas (via CinemaBlend). But don’t call into work to binge watch just yet, as Yahoo! will be released episodes on a weekly basis, just the same as if it were still on NBC. Still, you can expect some changes thanks to the change in platform, as Harmon has said that the writers are interested in testing the limitations of their new format. (Although we know how well Abed does with change…)
Teen Wolf Howls On… Teen Wolf might be in the middle of its fourth season at the moment, but the panel in Ballroom 20 only had eyes for the future, and with good reason: creator Jeff Davis revealed that the show already been renewed for a fifth season. According to EW, the upcoming season will also be the longest yet, with the episode count bumped up to 20 from season four’s 12. Of course, it will run in two parts and your favorite characters will probably be killed, but nobody said living in Beacon Hills was easy.
Incredible Interstellar After single-handedly revitalizing the Batman franchise and confusing people everywhere with Inception, Christopher Nolan finally made his Comic Con debut to talk about his upcoming film Interstellar, alongside Matthew McConaughey (via EW). Although they didn’t reveal much about the movie, they did showcase a new trailer that gives a better look at the mysteries it contains (which, unfortunately, the rest of us won’t get to see for a while), and Nolan revealed what inspired him to explore outer space. A little disappointingly, it was physics.
TMNT Needs Less Pizza, More Girl Power At least, according to Megan Fox. The actress has been making the rounds at Comic Con to promote the film, which hits theaters in mid-August, and in an interview with HitFix, she revealed that her April O’Neill will kick a little less butt than she had hoped: "A lot of girl power ended up on the cutting room floor, unfortunately. I had a really awesome scene where I was fighting The Foot Clan, but I think they were like, 'Why would a tiny journalist be able to kick so much ass?’” Silly producers, we writers have plenty of pent up anger. Let the girl fight!
Veteran actor Jeff Goldblum is engaged to wed his 31-year-old girlfriend. The Jurassic Park star proposed to actress/gymnast Emilie Livingston while on vacation in Hawaii last week (ends11Jul14) and she has since shared photos of the romantic occasion on her Twitter.com account.
She uploaded a snap of the happy couple after the 61 year old popped the question in design shop OK Store, and in the accompanying caption, she wrote, "He proposed @ our fave #okstore. I was taken over by tears of joy n ecstasy! We picked the ring 2gether #inlove (sic)."
Alongside another image of the bride-to-be showing off her ring as they watched a sunrise at the top of the Haleakala volcano mountain, she wrote, "Celebrating our engagement!"
It will be Goldblum's third marriage - he was previously wed to his Silverado co-star Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis, who featured in his 1986 sci-fi horror The Fly.
Teen Wolf fans might still be reeling from the penultimate season three episode that was impactful enough to keep the #RIPAllison hashtag trending on Twitter for more than 12 hours. Now that the finale has aired, it might be time to take a look at the major problem the show has when it comes to character death — specifically, which characters die and which only come close to knocking on death’s door.
Let’s play a little game (akin to those played on Wolf Watch)! Peter Hale, Deucalion, Gerard Argent, Isaac Lahey, Jackson Whittemore, and Ethan; what do these characters have in common? They’re all male, they’re all white, and they’re all still alive — despite some of them contracting life-threatening diseases or actually dying.
Next group! Victoria Argent, Allison Argent, Jennifer Blake, Erica Reyes, Vernon Boyd, and Kali; what do these characters have in common? They’re either not male or not white and they’re all dead!
For many fans, the most recent death of Allison has been a serious point of contention and, for a few, the last straw. On a show that has always been proud of its female heroes — the next generation of Buffy Summers — killing Allison seemed like a slap in the face to the Teen Wolf’s female fans. (Yes, we know Crystal Reed decided to leave the show, but so did Colton Haynes and his character wasn’t killed.)
The cast of characters on Teen Wolf is seriously skewed in favor of men, which works for eye candy, but offers little in the way of female representation for the majority of the show’s fans. If the reaction from fans is any indication, they did not take kindly to losing one of their beloved female heroes.
However, perhaps the writers are taking note of the representation problem on the show. The Teen Wolf season three finale may have attempted to right the wrong: Kate Argent was resurrected from the grave (seriously, did she dig herself out, or what body did the Argents bury in season two?) and Aiden fell at the hand of an Oni.
It may not be a complete reversal of the male and female character scales on Teen Wolf, but the finale showcased a step in the right direction. Maybe the fans that have taken issue with the character deaths will be able to look past the politics and simply enjoy the show again. Here’s hoping!
It might seem a little excessive that MTV’s Teen Wolf has not one but two after-shows for fans to watch. There’s Wolf Watch, hosted by former cast member Jill Wagner, that airs on MTV immediately following Teen Wolf, and then there’s The After After Show, hosted by Morgan Evans, which is streamed on MTV.com. Although they both offer more teenaged werewolf fun for fans, which after show is the best?
Wagner or Evans? While we certainly love the ever-classy Wagner — and she has credibility since she was actually on Teen Wolf — we’re going to have to go with Evans. Personally, we look for humor, and the ability to deliver off-color jokes without offending us, in an after show host.
Wolf Watch 0, The After After Show 1
Each week, The After After Show welcomes a guest on the show. Sometimes it’s a cast member; sometimes it’s Jeff Davis himself. However, one guest pales in comparison to what Wolf Watch offers: three guests from Teen Wolf, another MTV series, or a musician. And they’re always hilarious.
Wolf Watch 1, The After After Show 1
Can we talk about The After After Show’s “Teen Wolf: The Reality Show” segment and how amazing it is? Also, the “Gif-Bait” segment provides all the silly faces we could ever want. Meanwhile, Wolf Watch only has a discussion of the most recent Teen Wolf episode. They also keep a running tally of the hook ups, fights, and shirtless dudes, which, we’ll admit, is hard work, but nothing in comparison to TAAS.
Wolf Watch 1, The After After Show 2
Although The After After Show is fantastic, MTV gives all the preview clips — and that awesome end-of-season trailer — to Wolf Watch. It’s a no brainer.
Wolf Watch 2, The After After Show 2
Although Wolf Watch’s Alpha of the Week gets his or her questions answered by the cast, The After After Show actually grants fan wishes. Plus, Evans’ co-host, Lohanthany, picks his favorite fan reactions under #PackReacts on Instagram, which offers even more interactivity.
Wolf Watch 2, The After After Show 3
Winner: The After After Show!
For the bulk of every Rocky and Bullwinkle episode, moose and squirrel would engage in high concept escapades that satirized geopolitics, contemporary cinema, and the very fabrics of the human condition. With all of that to work with, there's no excuse for why the pair and their Soviet nemeses haven't gotten a decent movie adaptation. But the ingenious Mr. Peabody and his faithful boy Sherman are another story, intercut between Rocky and Bullwinkle segments to teach kids brief history lessons and toss in a nearly lethal dose of puns. Their stories and relationship were much simpler, which means that bringing their shtick to the big screen would entail a lot more invention — always risky when you're dealing with precious material.
For the most part, Mr. Peabody & Sherman handles the regeneration of its heroes aptly, allowing for emotionally substance in their unique father-son relationship and all the difficulties inherent therein. The story is no subtle metaphor for the difficulties surrounding gay adoption, with society decreeing that a dog, no matter how hyper-intelligent, cannot be a suitable father. The central plot has Peabody hosting a party for a disapproving child services agent and the parents of a young girl with whom 7-year-old Sherman had a schoolyard spat, all in order to prove himself a suitable dad. Of course, the WABAC comes into play when the tots take it for a spin, forcing Peabody to rush to their rescue.
Getting down to personals, we also see the left brain-heavy Peabody struggle with being father Sherman deserves. The bulk of the emotional marks are hit as we learn just how much Peabody cares for Sherman, and just how hard it has been to accept that his only family is growing up and changing.
But more successful than the new is the film's handling of the old — the material that Peabody and Sherman purists will adore. They travel back in time via the WABAC Machine to Ancient Egypt, the Renaissance, and the Trojan War, and 18th Century France, explaining the cultural backdrop and historical significance of the settings and characters they happen upon, all with that irreverent (but no longer racist) flare that the old cartoons enjoyed. And oh... the puns.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a f**king treasure trove of some of the most amazingly bad puns in recent cinema. This effort alone will leave you in awe.
The film does unravel in its final act, bringing the science-fiction of time travel a little too close to the forefront and dropping the ball on a good deal of its emotional groundwork. What seemed to be substantial building blocks do not pay off in the way we might, as scholars of animated family cinema, have anticipated, leaving the movie with an unfinished feeling.
But all in all, it's a bright, compassionate, reasonably educational, and occasionally funny if not altogether worthy tribute to an old favorite. And since we don't have our own WABAC machine to return to a time of regularly scheduled Peabody and Sherman cartoons, this will do okay for now.
If nothing else, it's worth your time for the puns.

For weeks now, the cast and crew of MTVs Teen Wolf have been warning audiences that a major character death would happen before the end of the third season. Although the show has never shied away from killing off characters — except for Jackson, who merely moved to London when Colton Haynes left the show — this one could be the last straw for fans.
In November, Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis hinted that a core character would die in the second half of the third season: “Prepare to lose someone,” he said. “We will possibly be changing our main title sequence, so not everyone’s going to make it out of this season alive.”
For those of us who are still reeling from the traumatic deaths of Erica (Gage Golightly) and Boyd (Sinqua Walls) in 3A, this was particularly harsh.
So who could it be? If Davis is telling the truth and it’s someone in the main title sequence, then it could be Scott, Allison, Stiles, Derek, or Lydia — all of whom have been on Teen Wolf since the very first episode. If Davis is lying (a highly likely possibility) the victim could be Isaac, Danny, or one of the adults: Melissa McCall, Chris Argent, or Sheriff Stilinski. Any of these would tear out our hearts.
Since Teen Wolf is character driven — they keep the show grounded in reality while their lives are inundated with the supernatural — it’s hard to imagine the series without any of these characters. Then there’s the worry that the death won’t be given its due. If Teen Wolf kills off one of the main characters and the show does a poor job of it (like Erica in 3A) that could make the death even more heartbreaking... and infuriating.
We don’t know about you, but we’re very, very wary of the third season finale.
Copious amounts of snow? Check. 1990-something automobile? Check. Old timey tunes blaring on the radio? Check. This definitely looks something like a Fargo series. And even though FX's upcoming adaptation is only loosely based on the Coen Brothers' 1996 classic, we're beyond excited. The trailer is pretty short, only giving us a few precious seconds of Billy Bob Thornton scraping midwestern flurries off of his windshield, before giving us an icy glare, but it has to be good enough for now. Hopefully the next trailer gives us a little bit of Martin Freeman's American accent, and at least a couple "you betcha"s (we'll even settle for a "don'tcha know"). Since Fargo is getting the small screen treatment, we wondered which other of the Coens' films would work on television, let's start at the top and work our way through the list.
Blood SimpleWould it work as a series?Yes. Texas-style neo-noir on a week-to-week basis. We all love True Detective, don't we?
Raising ArizonaWould it work as a series?No. Nicolas Cage's zany baby-stealing high jinks might be fun as a one-off, but 13 episodes of this shtick would be overkill.
Miller's CrossingWould it work as a series?Yes. With Boardwalk Empire ending, the TV landscape is in need of some good old-fashioned mobster moxie.
Barton FinkWould it work as a series?No. His writers block would make us all lose our minds after a few weeks.
The Hudsucker ProxyWould it work as a series?Yes. Who wouldn't want some more Coen-infused screwball hoopla? (Get it?!) We picture it as a much wackier version of Mad Men.
The Big LebowskiWould it work as a series?No. The Dude's story started and ended back in Gulf War-era Los Angeles, and shouldn't be tampered with.
O Brother, Where Art thouWould it work as a series?No. Look at how badly Prison Break fell apart.
The Man Who Wasn't ThereWould it work as a series?Maybe, but the Coens' mostly forgotten follow-up to O Brother probably wouldn't rustle up too many viewers.
Intolerable CrueltyWould it work as a series?Yes. Watching a savvy, debonair leading man play a ruthless divorce lawyer already sounds like something that should be a show. Tuesdays on TBS!
The LadykillersWould it work as a series?Yes. A weekly series where a southern dandy tries to charm his way into the high-stakes crime ring definitely could definitely be fun for some laughs.
No Country for Old MenWould it work as a series?No. There's only so much "floppy haired serial killer" we can take.
Burn After ReadingWould it work as a series?Yes. A workplace comedy about the U.S. government and a local gym, and the points at which they intersect, has the makings for great television.
A Serious ManWould it work as a series?No. Not even AMC could carry a series that depressing.
True GritWould it work as a series?No. Trying to understand Rooster Cogburn's old west grumble was hard enough in surround sound.
Inside Llewyn DavisWould it work as a series?Sure. A TV series about an unlikable main character trying to become a successful artist in New York? It could be like a 1960s version of Girls.

While O. Russell admits he is thrilled that all four of his film's main actors picked up nods, adding, "It's all four actors... you always worry as sort of the captain... that one of your great performers is not going to get recognised... they all put so much into it and they did it together so it's nice that none of them got left out."
American Hustle and Gravity both scored 10 nominations, while 12 Years A Slave landed nine.
