  • James Franco Gets Punked By 'One Life to Live'
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 12, 2013
    What's the only thing worse than one thing that needs attention? Two things that need attention! Well, it's a good thing that rapper Riff-Raff and the soap opera One Life to Live can get together, though. ONTL got canceled by ABC and is about to come back to Hulu in 30-minute episodes at the end of the month. Yes, they need people to know about that. Riff-Raff claims that James Franco stole his identity for his character Alien in Spring Breakers. Yes, he needs people to know about that. Together, they're a publicity machine. According to EW.com, ONTL hired Riff-Raff (not to be confused with Dr. Frank N Furter's butler) to play an art dealer named Jamie Franco, a jab at the art dealer character played by James Franco on General Hospital. See, isn't that clever! Now everyone is paying attention because they're playing a little prank. As for James Franco, well, he just starred in a blockbuster Oz movie and General Hospital, well, that's still on the air.

  • Hallelujah! Jackee Harry Joins the Cast of 'Girl Meets World'
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 12, 2013
      Of all the travesties in the world – the floundering of BitCoin, the destabilization of Cyprus, Crash winning best picture – the greatest travesty of all is that Emmy winner and 227 star Jackée Harry does not have a place on television to appear regularly. Well, that's all about to change.  As if reviving Boy Meets World wasn't enough to satiate your nostalgia, the updated version Girl Meets World has added Ms. Harry (because we are all so incredibly nasty) to the pilot episode, according to the Huffington Post. There's still no word on who she is going to play, but it is sure to be amazing. Can I suggest a sassy principal for Cory and Topanga's daughter? This might put the breaks on a Sister, Sister reunion, but I think we can all live with that. And if you doubt her comedic chops, check out Nurse Jackée. You'll thank me later.  Follow Brian Moylan on Twitter @BrianJMoylan More: 'Girl Meets World' Casts Cory and Topanga's DaughterMr. Feeney Will Spread His Wisdom in 'Girl Meets World''Girl Meets World' Nabs Cory and Topanga From Our PartnersJessica Alba Bikinis in St. Barts (Celebuzz)Which Game of Thrones Actor Looks Least Like His On-Screen Character?

    Everyone knows the best part of every The Simpsons episode without Ralph Wiggum is the opening sequence where we can see what Bart is writing on the chalk board and just how the family is going to sit on the couch. Well, now there are some very bad humans invading the living room of the world's oldest living animated cast. Check out this Sunday's opening, where Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are integrated into the show.

  • Jonathan Winters, Comedian and Voice Actor, Dies at 87
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 12, 2013
    Jonathan Winters, a comedian known for his stand-up, impressions, and guest starring roles on tons of movies and TV shows (including the final season of Mork & Mindy) died of natural causes on Thursday at his home, the New York Times reports.  Winters got his start in the '50s performing comedy routines and his many voices on radio stations in the midwest. He soon moved on to live performances, best-selling comedy albums, and The Tonight Show , which made his character Maude Frickert, a mean old lady, quite famous. He played small roles in scores of movies and was a regular panelist on the original Hollywood Squares. He also did a stint on the long-running Hee-Haw in the '80s.  Later in life, Winters had a second career using his incredibly versatile voice in cartoons. He did a guest spot on Scooby-Doo as himself and later did voices for The Smurfs, Pound Puppies, and Animaniacs. Winters was famously institutionalized in the '50s and urban legend had it that he couldn't distinguish himself from his many characters. In reality he was diagnosed as bipolar.  Today we try not to think of that and remember, instead, his hilarious and versatile skills as a comedian.  Follow Brian Moylan on Twitter @BrianJMoylan More: Roger Ebert, Legendary Film Critic, DiesAnnette Funicello, Mouseketeer and Beach Mainstay, DiesMeryl Streep Pays Tribute to Margaret Thatcher From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • Lawsuit Against IMDb for Publishing Actress' Real Age Dismissed in Court
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 12, 2013
    Junie Hoang is 41 years old. I just wanted you all to know, and you can verify it on her IMDb page now and forever. She's not so happy about that and therefore sued the popular website that decides all of your arguments about who has and who has not won an Oscar, saying that having her real age on the site cost her a career in the movies. That suit has now been dismissed.  On Thursday, a jury in a Seattle federal court dismissed the $1 million lawsuit. Apparently no one thought that the Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver actress' career prospects were injured by everyone knowing her real age. She told the Associated Press, "My hope was that it would make a change in the database. I knew it was a problem not just for me but for anyone else who had their age on their profile." It doesn't seem to be a problem for any of these actresses who are big stars in Hollywood, so maybe her lack of success has less to do with her age and more to do with her decision to be in Exotic Dancers of Houston.  Follow Brian Moylan on Twitter @BrianJMoylan More: Iran Files Lawsuit Against 'Argo'Lindsay Lohan Loses Lawsuit Against PitbullWarner Bros.

  • 9 Years Later, Two 'Mean Girls' Stars Are Sitting at the Loser's Table
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 12, 2013
    Can you believe it was nine years ago this month that the world was introduced to Cady Heron, Regina George, and Glen Coco (you go, Glen Coco)? Yes, on April 30, 2004, Mean Girls hit theaters and immediately became a cultural touchstone for a whole generation who is still making GIFs of all the action nearly a decade later. The movie was initially a star vehicle for Lindsay Lohan, whose career was on a rapidly upward trajectory, but a funny thing happened – Mean Girls not only brought her front and center but introduced the world to a crop of actresses who are still claiming the top spots in Hollywood as LiLo continues to crumble. Which of The Plastics now reigns supreme? We looked at the careers of seven women from the film to see who comes out on top. Who "won" Mean girls? It looks like writer Tina Fey. Here they are in order of who is doing the best based on their subsequent roles, career, and ability to stay out (or in) the tabloids:  Tina Fey: Sure, she was the brains behind the whole operation, but when she wrote this movie, she was just some funny lady from SNL. She had yet to launch 30 Rock, win a slew of Emmys, and do one of the most famous impressions of the 21st century. Movie Roles: Admission, Megamind, Date Night, The Invention of Lying, Ponyo, Baby Mama Movies That Gross More Than $50 Million: Date Night, Baby Mama Flops: Admission TV Roles: 30 Rock, Sarah Palin on SNL TV Shows Produced: 1 Emmy Nominations: 20 Emmy Wins: 6 Arrests: 0 Break Ups: 0 Scandals: Only when Taylor Swift told her she was going to hell Assorted Pluses: Wrote a best-selling book and became a "thinking man's sex symbol." Did a bang-up job co-hosting the Golden Globes with bestie Amy Poehler. Is working on a Mean Girls musical with her husband. How awesome is that! Assorted Minuses: I can't think of one. Rachel McAdams: 2004 made this Canadian a star when Mean Girls and a little thing called The Notebook launched her. She has more blockbusters than anyone on this list and hardly a flop. If she had the same awards recognition and was spread across as many platforms, she would have beaten Tina Fey. Turns out the nice girls do finish last. Movie Roles: The Vow, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Midnight in Paris, Morning Glory, Sherlock Holmes, Time Traveler's Wife, State of Play, The Lucky Ones, Married Life, The Family Stone, Red Eye, Wedding Crashers, The Notebook Movies That Gross More Than $50 Million: The Vow, Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, Midnight in Paris, Time Traveler's Wife, The Family Stone, Red Eye, Wedding Crashers, The Notebook Flops: 0 TV Roles: Rachel McAdams does not do TV... yet. TV Shows Produced: 0 Emmy Nominations: 0 Emmy Wins: 0Arrests: 0 Break Ups: Ryan Gosling, Josh Lucas, Michael Sheen Scandals: 0 Assorted Pluses: Um, she dated Ryan Gosling! She's also great in both comedy, action, and dramatic roles. Assorted Minuses: She has a thing for dating co-stars. Amanda Seyfried: One of the most sought-after starlets in Hollywood, unfortunately she has about as much smarts as her Mean Girls character when it comes to picking roles. Movie Roles: Lovelace, Les Miserables, Gone, In Time, Red Riding Hood, Letters to Juliet, Dear John, Chloe, Jennifer's Body, Mamma Mia!, Alpha Dog Movies That Gross More Than $50 Million: Les Miserables, Letters to Juliet, Dear John, Mamma Mia! Flops: Gone, In Time, Red Riding Hood, Jennifer's Body TV Roles: Big Love TV Shows Produced: 0 Emmy Nominations: 0 Emmy Wins: 0 Arrests: 0 Break Ups: Dominic Cooper, Ryan Phillippe, Josh Hartnett, some real estate guy Assorted Pluses: According to People she is the fourth most beautiful person in the world. She also has a taxidermy collection, which is cool. Assorted Minuses: Did you see the list of flops? Sadly the movies she stars in are high-profile duds where the ones where she is a supporting cast member do aces. Amy Poehler: She was always Tina Fey's second fiddle until she got a show of her own that is just as successful. Now if only she could start reaping those awards in the same way.... Movie Roles: A.C.O.D, Monsters Vs. Aliens, Baby Mama, Horton Hears a Who!, Hamlet 2, Blades of Glory, The Ex, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny Movies That Gross More Than $50 Million: Baby Mama, Monsters vs. Aliens, Horton Hears a Who, Blades of Glory Flops: Hamlet 2 TV Roles: Parks and Recreation TV Shows Produced: 1 Emmy Nominations: 9 Emmy Wins: 0 Arrests: 0 Break Ups: Will Arnett Scandals: Again, when Taylor Swift told her she was going to hell, and she had a snappy rejoinder. Assorted Pluses: This award show queen not only killed it at the Golden Globes with Tina Fey, but she orchestrated those Best Actress in a Comedy bits at the Emmys for all those years. Assorted Minuses: She's always funniest with someone else and while she's been in some hits, she has yet to have the big starring vehicle of her own. Lizzy Caplan: You could barely recognize our gothy Janice Ian today. Not only did she grow up right, but she is one of the most well-respected funny ladies around. If only Hollywood could figure out what to do with the indie star. Movie Roles: 3,2,1...Frankie Go Boom, Bachelorette, Save the Date, 127 Hours, Hot Tub Time Machine, Cloverfield, My Best Friend's Girl Movies That Gross More Than $50 Million: Cloverfield, Hot Tub Time Machine Flops: 0 TV Roles: Masters of Sex, Party Down, True Blood, The Class TV Shows Produced: 0Emmy Nominations: 0 Emmy Wins: 0 Arrests: 0 Break Ups: 0 Scandals: That she's not a bigger star. Assorted Pluses: Between Party Down and Bachelorette she has a huge and devoted cult fan base and tons of street cred. Masters of Sex is getting tons of advance buzz. And she dates Matthew Perry, so that's cool. Let's not forget her killer guest stint on Season 1 of New Girl. Assorted Minuses: If everyone loves her, why can't she make any of her products stick? Also, she was in a Dane Cook movie.  Lindsay Lohan: America's reigning tabloid queen and walking punchline, Lohan has been on an almost decades-long spiral and still hasn't hit rock bottom. Movie Roles: Scary Movie 5, The Canyons, Machete, I Know Who Killed Me, Georgia Rule, Bobby, Just My Luck, Prairie Home Companion, Herbie Fully Loaded Movies That Gross More Than $50 Million: Herbie Fully Loaded Flops: I Know Who Killed Me, Just My Luck TV Roles: Liz & Dick, a guest stint on Ugly Betty that got cut short due to bad behavior, playing herself on Glee, a guest stint with her BFF Charlie Sheen on Anger Managment, and an arc on, of all things, Million Dollar DecoratorTV Shows Produced: 0 Emmy Nominations: 0 Emmy Wins: 0 Arrests: Between the DUIs, the jewelry theft, the probation violations, the court-appointed rehab, the stint working in the morgue, I can't keep any of this straight anymore, but I love her court outfits. Break Ups: Wilmer Valderama, Samantha Ronson Scandals: Do we need to ask? Assorted Pluses: There was a time with Lindsay actually had tons of talent, gold records, a line of leggings, a catchy single ("I'm just a little bossy"), and all the free clothes she could steal from photo shoots. Even now we're still fascinated by her. Still we look at her like a pair of wadded up panties in a gutter, trying to figure out just how they got there and who the heck is going to get them out. Assorted Minuses: If it's not the shopping addiction, bad plastic surgery, friendship with Charlie Sheen, bad Glee guest appearances, the cultural scourge of Liz & Dick, getting publicly fired from a consultancy with Ungaro, the Playboy nude spread, all the nip slips and upskirts, then it's, well, drugs, booze, and rehab. Lohan has blown it all. Lacey Chabert: This was the Party of Five star's big comeback. It didn't quite work out. Movie Roles: Ghosts of Girlfriends PastMovies That Gross More Than $50 Million: 0 Flops: 0 TV Roles: Are we counting cartoon voiceovers, Christmas movies, and schlocky Lifetime specials, because she has a ton. No, seriously, she's been a voice on like every superhero cartoon you can name. That has to count for something. TV Shows Produced: 0 Emmy Nominations: 0 Emmy Wins: 0 Arrests: She couldn't get arrested in this town. ZING!Break Ups: 0 Scandals: No one is talking about her.

  • All the Best Parts of Sundance Darling 'The Way, Way Back' Are in the Trailer
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 11, 2013
    Ever go see a movie and every big laugh was already in the trailer? Yeah, happens all the time. And it might happen to you again if you go see $10 million Sundance darling The Way, Way Back. OK, there are some great gags in it that aren't in the trailer (most thinks to co-writer, Oscar winner, and Community star Jim Rash), but rightfully the promo focuses on all the right moments.  We see Steve Carell being a dick, Sam Rockwell being a lovable goof, Maya Rudolph as a sweet scold, Toni Collette as an adorable mom, Amanda Peet as a sex bomb, Rob Corddry as a silly dude, and Allison Janney as a hot-to-trot neighbor. Yes, it's an all-star cast. Sadly, none of them are the main character. That distinction belongs to Liam James, who looks like either the worst actor under the age of 30 or is playing his character so far along "the spectrum" that he has no emotional at all. No one will want to spend 20 minutes with him, nonetheless a full 90 in this coming of age tale. That's why he is mostly absent and silent from the trailer. Hey, they gotta make this thing look good to fill the seats. Sadly they have ignore the meat of the story to do it.  Follow Brian Moylan on Twitter @BrianJMoylan More: 'The Way, Way Back' Might Not Be the $10 Million Hit Everyone Thinks It IsThe Biggest Deals from the Sundance Buying FrenzyJames Franco Had a Lot of Sex at Sundance Last Night From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • 'Survivor' Recap: This Is Finally Getting Good
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 11, 2013
    OK, I have really been railing on this season of Survivor for being boring, awful, and heavily massaged by the producers. I almost gave up so many times, but I'm glad I didn't. This, people, is why we will never stop watching this show. One episode and everything is turned all topsy-turvey. How did Michael get eliminated? How did Malcolm get Reynold to give him the idol? How are Andrea and Dawn running the whole show? How is Cochran still alive after climbing down a waterfall? How long before Brenda actually says a word? I have no idea, and I couldn't be happier. Here's what I sort of ascertained from last night's episode. Malcolm thinks he's not only a dreamboat but a strategic genius. He goes to Dawn and tells her, "We're on the bottom of the alliance, we need to get on the top." That is sound thinking. The funny thing is, everyone thinks that Dawn is this stupid, crazy, scatterbrained woman because she's older and she cries a lot, but she is sneakier than a 17-year-old with a gravity bong. First of all she's in control of the game, because everyone thinks they can talk to her. She's bringing all the flipping information back to the core of her alliance which is now Cochran, Special Agent of Annoyance Philip T. Shepherd, and, shockingly, Andrea, who is running the whole thing. They've enlisted Sheri too and those Survivor zombies Brenda and Eric, who just sort of stumble around the island and grunt every once in awhile and look for brains under rocks. When Dawn told everyone that Malcolm was getting the fans together, stupid Stealth R Us decided that they were going to tell Malcolm that they were splitting their votes between Eddie and Reynold, but they were really going to vote for Malcolm. At this point in the game I thought for sure that Malcolm would win the immunity challenge and save himself and ruin the whole plan, but no. Brenda won. Brenda. Stupid zombie Brenda who, I believe, did not utter one human syllable approaching a word last night, but she can throw a grate in the rising tide the best. That's because she's an undead monster and probably doesn't even need to breathe. Here's where things got crazy. Dawn and Andrea told Malcolm they were splitting votes between Eddie and Reynold to flush out the idol. Then Dawn told Malcolm that she would go with him if Reynold showed her the immunity idol. She then went back and told everyone he had it. This is Grade A Survivor right here, lying to someone's face, getting information that will give you an advantage, and executing a plan that has almost no way of failing. Malcolm's plan hinged on Dawn flipping, and if she didn't, then he was not going to have the numbers and he'd be toast. What threw it all off was Andrea's relationship with Eddie. They clearly like each other but have this Romeo and Juliet thing going on where they're trying to work with each other, at least nominally, but also trying to stay true to their alliance. This culiminated in the second best conversation in Survivor history (the first best is still when Eliza told Jason back in the original Fans Vs. Favorites that he wasn't holding a hidden immunity idol, but a "f**king stick with a face drawn on it"). Andrea told him that they were splitting votes but they may not be between him and Reynold, and they have a real target but she can't tell him who. He was telling her that someone may have an idol, but he doesn't know if they do or if they don't. There was lots of stammering and back and forth and lying and working around the fact that neither of them wanted to give up any information but wanted to get as much information as they could. Andrea asked who the target was and, after more hemming and hawing than you trying to explain to your mother whose cigarettes those are that she found in your back pack, he told her that her name came up to be voted out.  BAM! That's all it takes. All it takes it that little bit of doubt, the fear that your name is going to be put down on the paper. This sent Andrea into a crazy tailspin. She then started to cry which, ugh, but then she freaked out and though she was going home and made everyone change the vote to Michael so that she could keep herself in the game. This teaches us a few things. The first is that Andrea is really in control because everyone, including crazy Dawn, told her to relax and that it was going to work out, they just needed to take out Malcolm when they had the chance. Since they all voted for Michael, that means they care more about Andrea than good strategy, which means she is their leader. It also shows us that they are all scared to hell of the idols, and Malcolm still has one that no one knows about. It also teaches us that Andrea doesn't really have what it takes to play Survivor. What she needed to do was stop having an emotional reaction and start counting the numbers and playing out the scenario in her head. If they didn't tip their hat that they were gunning for Malcolm, he would have been out.  But they did. Well, big mouth Phillip, The Informer, did. He talked about flushing out idols and getting rid of people that were unfaithful to them, and that gave Malcolm a clue as to what was going on. When it came time to play an idol, he made one of the most genius moves I've ever seen on this show. He told Reynold that he was safe and that everyone was gunning for him, so he needed to give him the idol. Yes, Malcolm didn't play his idol, he got the only other guy in the game with an idol to give it to him. That is balls. That is brilliant. It turns out he was wrong — they voted for Michael, and Philip was only talking about what he wanted to happen, not what they were actually going to do. This is even worse because if he had shut up and had Andrea not lost her nerve, they would have sent him packing. Now they're stuck with a master strategist who is excellent at challenges that have nothing to do with balancing a ball between handles. They are screwed. But look at the game. Malcolm (who I root for because I want to lie my naked body next to his for all of eternity and breathe in the musk of his hair) doesn't have many options. He has Eddie and Reynold. That's it. Despite Reynold's continued pleas to get everyone to "bro down" — a phrase that actually gives me hives — no one seems into it. Malcolm and Co are up against Andrea, Philip, Dawn, Cochran, Sheri, and the zombies Eric and Brenda, who they are leading through the woods on long chains like Michonne does on The Walking Dead. Recruiting the zombies is his only hope. Malcolm was right, he needed to make his big move at 11 when there were still a lot of people on the outs left to rally, and when there was an odd number of players (I have a whole theory about this I've written about before). The problem, is he got played. Speaking of playing, we're finally starting to see some, and I'm happier with Survivor than I've been in a long time.

  • Michelle Williams Got an Insane Flock of Seagulls Haircut
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 10, 2013
    Michelle Williams is known for many things: being awesome in every movie, always taking bestie Busy Philips as her Oscar date, and being the best thing to happen to the pixie cut since Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby. Well, you can scratch the last one off the list.  She arrived at the Kate Young for Target Launch in New York last night rocking an asymetrical cut that looks like something Flock of Seagulls made popular in the '80s or that Pete Wentz abandoned long ago. Oh, Michelle, I know that wanting to change your look is only natural, but why would you want to mess with perfection? And why do you want something that every girl in Brooklyn chopped off six months ago?  Follow Brian Moylan on Twitter @BrianJMoylan More: Celebrity Haircuts You've Asked ForVanessa Hudgens Cut Off All Her HairMiley Cyrus Flaunts New Hair From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • No, Morris Chestnut Will Not Play the Black Panther in 'Avengers 2'
    By: Brian Moylan Apr 10, 2013
      We all know that many celebrities take the same attitude toward their Twitter as they do toward raising their children: they're actively involved and make suggestions, but someone is paid to do the heavy lifting. That seems to be what happended to actor Morris Chestnut who found himself in contention to play the role of Black Panther in Avengers 2 and having to deny the rumor within 24 hours, all thanks to Twitter.  It all started on Tuesday when the Boyz N the Hood actor's Twitter account said, "Time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!" He then referenced that the character was going to be in Avengers 2, which is set to premiere in 2015. The tweets have since been deleted but, like everything on the Internet from penis pictures to meatball recipes, they have been preserved for future generations. It makes total sense that the Black Panther would join the franchise since the powerful King of Wakanda (a fictional African nation) has been a fixture of the roster in the comics since the '70s and would add some much needed additional color to the cast. But it turns out it's not true.  Chestnut later tweeted that he isn't in talks for the part at all (and, thanks to tight-lipped Marvel, we still don't know if the part even exists). Thx to the fans for bringing #blackpanther to my attention, NOT in talks about this project with .@marvel — Morris Chestnut (@Morris_Chestnut) April 10, 2013 Just today there was a string of tweets that said the following, "Disclaimer: In fairness to Mr. Chestnut, it must be acknowledged that all posts in reference to the "Black Panther" were originated by The MCCamp. Although Mr. Chestnut applies earnest effort in communicating with his fans, occasionally there is assistance by The MCCamp in the best interest of facilitating production/filming and/or projects, as is the case at this time. The enthusiasm of the Fans is highly revered, always honored and appreciated. Thank you. - The MCCamp"  So, looks like Morris Chestnut has about as much hand in his Twitter as some stars have in their "clothing lines." And what is the MCCamp? Is that the "Morris Chestnut Camp" or is that some sort of agency that he pays to deliver all the tweets for him? I have no clue, but I'm almost certain that someone is getting fired today, and it might even be Morris Chestnut.  Follow Brian Moylan on Twitter @BrianJMoylan More: Post 'Avengers' What's Next for the Marvel HeroesJoss Whedon to Write and Direct 'Avengers 2''Avengers 2' Locked for Summer 2015 From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?
