Actor Ben Affleck gave an impromptu pep talk to the football players at Michigan State University after working out at the school's gym. The Oscar winner is currently filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Detroit and surrounding cities, and to keep his brawny body as the Caped Crusader, Affleck has been hitting the team's weight room.
Following his workout on Thursday (16Oct14), Spartans head coach Mike Dantonio invited Affleck to speak to the team before their practice.
Affleck gladly agreed, and opened his speech by simply saying, "I'm Batman."
He continued to give the team a short pep talk for their big game versus Indiana University on Saturday (18Oct14).
The Argo star follows in the footsteps of Matthew McConaughey, who revisited his chest-thumping character from The Wolf of Wall Street while giving a similar speech to the Longhorns football team of his alma mater the University of Texas at Austin earlier this month.
America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon and Dancing With The Stars judge Julianne Hough teamed up with Samsung to smash the Guinness World Record for the longest selfie relay chain with 283 consecutive selfies. The event was to promote Samsung’s next generation of digital cameras - the new NX line. The cameras are slimmer, sleeker and have the ability to connect to smartphones. Samsung gave out 300 of their brand new cameras as they called for people to "Ditch the DSLR" in exchange for the new Samsung devices. Samsung also donated $50,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater LA as part of the event. Click here to find out more about Samsung's new digital cameras.
Despite his pending divorce to Mariah Carey - which seems to be getting ugly - Cannon is “getting out there" with seemingly endless projects he has keeping him busy. Cannon just wrapped the 9th season of America’s Got Talent alongside judges Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B. The winner, magician Mat Franco, was awarded $1 million and a headlining show in Las Vegas. Cannon is all for a magician winning the talent competition show, saying: “There’s so many other singing competitions and dance shows out there. For someone like a magician to be able to come through and win $1 million, it shows you what the show’s all about - it could be any talent. I mean, he was the best and most talented person that America saw. So, therefore, he took it all the way, and I think it was well deserved.”
It seems like keeping busy is the best way to keep his mind off his marriage troubles. He has a new standup comedy show for Showtime called F#ck Nick Cannon, an album White People Party Music (the new music video for "Looking For a Dream" is quite exceptional by the way). Oh, and he’s writing a children’s book based on his and Carey’s twins Roc & Roe. He also recently rocked the most expensive pair of shoes ever - a $2 million pair of diamond loafers - marking two Guinness world records he's broken. Not too shabby. This guy is certainly not moping around while his soon to be ex-wife is on a world tour.
Cannon also has a couple works that are under the radar. He’s going to be bringing Robin Leach's Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous back to TV. And he recently partnered with Maxim - he’ll be taking over the magazine’s content as well as heading strategic events. “I’ll be doing my thing… so that’s kinda cool.” Keep doing your thing, Cannon. It’s very cool indeed.
Cannon also stars on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood alongside Kevin Hart, Nelly, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin and J.B. Smoove. "The fakest reality show on TV" just premiered its third season. Catch new episodes of the hilarious show Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. on BET.

Legendary scientist Stephen Hawking was so impressed after seeing an early screening of his biopic The Theory of Everything that he offered up the actual computer voice he uses in real life, and that voice made the final cut of the film. Les Miserables actor Eddie Redmayne portrays the physicist when he is first diagnosed with motor neurone disease, or ALS, in his early 20s.
The Office ended May 16, 2013. That might only be a year and a half ago, but with fall TV in full swing, The Office fans can feel the show's presence missing from our lives. Can't they just reunite and make new episodes already? Every other show/movie is getting redone or sequels or put on Netflix, why not skip the waiting period and do it now?
1. This show taught us amazing life lessons, like that you can be both feared and loved.
2. We also learned this very useful bit of advice about mistletoe.
3. The show gave us aspirations that we could do more than just sit in an office.
4. Kelly Kapoor is the reason we know what to say to sound smart.
5. And Michael broke the very important news over who loves pizza.
6. Kevin taught us all what dreams really are.
7. Our inner child smiled when Dwight used this insult we've been throwing at our friends since we could read.
8. This show introduced u s to a new National holiday.
9. They gave us hope to one day create such an amazing holiday card with our own co-workers.

11. But speaking of Jim, The Office also showed us that office romances can bloom into the most powerful and amazing things in the world.
12. The show gave us the perfect insult for Negative Nancys.
13. It also reminded us there are too many people on this planet.
14. Prison Mike let everyone know why we should never wind up in prison.

17. Or Dwight as Jim, more?
18. And honestly, is TV really even funny anymore if people aren't force-feeding Kevin vegetables?

Former Saturday Night Live star Jan Hooks has died, aged 57. A representative for the actress confirmed that Hooks passed away on Thursday (09Oct14). While the official cause of death has yet to be revealed, sources tell TMZ.com that she had been battling a serious illness.
Hooks spent four seasons as a regular cast member on the long-running sketch comedy programme in the late 1980s, and made multiple cameo appearances until 1994.
She shared the stage with iconic SNL stars such as Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Phil Hartman and Dana Carvey, and was famous for her role as one half of the Sweeney Sisters with castmate Nora Dunn.

James Bond is set to become a comic book hero thanks to a new deal between bosses at Dynamite Entertainment and the estate of 007 author Ian Fleming. The new comics and graphic novels will be set before 1953's Casino Royale - the first book to feature the superspy - and will chronicle Bond's early career years.
The series are set for release next year (15).
A press release about the new venture reads: "These new stories will draw inspiration from the Fleming canon to explore Bond's origins: his raw early years before he gambled with his life in the first novel, Casino Royale."
Editor Mike Lake hopes the new books and comics will help fans recall some of Bond's greatest adventures - and the villains who put his life at risk: "The Bond villains are some of the most memorable figures in popular culture... where did they come from? And, in some cases, where did they go?"
