  • Can Aubrey Plaza Turn Zombie Movies Into Rom-Coms?
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 30, 2014
    Colleen Hayes/NBC There's a lot to love in the new trailer for Life After Beth. Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Dane DeHaan, and Aubrey Plaza as the undead girlfriend of your dreams/nightmares. For those of us who still can't bare to watch The Walking Dead or World War Z, this is the one zombie production that we might actually be able to enjoy:   The trailer for her other movie About Alex has also been released. There are no zombies, but there's definitely a dark humor permeating this one, as Plaza plays one of a group of friends gathered in the wake of a suicide attempt:   Plaza fans the world over—anticipate a very big year for your favorite Parks and Rec weirdo.

  • Kendall Jenner's Latest Magazine Cover Is Seriously Disappointing
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 28, 2014
    kendalljenner/instagram We have been loving Kendall Jenner's recent high fashion photo shoots (and videos), and for that reason this new Love magazine cover is truly disappointing. Kind of meh, no? We get the Independence Day theme, but there's not a lot happening here otherwise. Love magazine has had some great issues in the past, so let's hope the rest of the spread is better. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Beyoncé Shares Never-Before-Seen Wedding Footage During The 'On The Run' Tour
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 27, 2014
    Instagram/beyonce It's been six years since Beyoncé married Jay Z in a super-secret wedding about which we still know very little. But if you're attending the couple's On The Run tour, you might catch some pretty epic, never-before-seen personal footage from their big day Lucky for us, this Instagram user got a pretty good shot of the video, which shows Bey and Jay getting their matching "IV" tattoos, and also tying the knot. That ring, though...  Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • What Amy Adams Did For This Soldier Is So Perfect
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 27, 2014
    Getty Images/George Pimentel If you've ever seen the movie American Hustle, you should already know that Amy Adams is pretty much the best. We now have more proof of this fact. The actress was preparing to board a flight back to Los Angeles from Detroit when she did something few celebrities are willing to do. She reportedly gave up her first class seat on the plane to a soldier who she noticed sitting at her gate. Adams swapped with him, and sat in coach for the duration of the flight. Although she didn't do it for the attention, we can't help but applaud this random act of kindness. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Should 'Do The Right Thing' Become A Broadway Musical?
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 27, 2014
    Universal Pictures via Everett Collection Spike Lee's critically-acclaimed 1989 film Do The Right Thing may be headed to Broadway. The drama—which centered on race relations and the cultural experiences of individuals and families living in the Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York—could be adapted as a play, not a musical. But in case you were curious as to what the musical version might sound like, check out Spike Lee's hilarious response below: Actually, that sounds kind of amazing. But we'll trust Spike Lee to take the more practical route and stick to a stage play. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • 'Girls' Meets 'Orange Is The New Black'!
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 27, 2014
    Netflix Orange Is The New Black fans, rejoice! You may have to wait until forever before Season Three premieres, but you can at least get yourself a little Nicky Nichols in the meantime. Natasha Lyonne, who recently spoke out against homophobia and opposition to gay marriage, will appear on the fourth season of HBO’s Girls. There are no details about her character, although we do know that OITNB's Nicky will now be going by "Ricky." We can't wait to hear that signature raspy voice saying all the sarcastic and genius and wonderful things we love to hear, alongside Lena Dunham and the rest of the Girls crew. Oh, yes. We are eternally Team Nicky. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Olivia Wilde Twitter-Shames 'GQ' Magazine For Sexist Remarks
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 27, 2014
    Getty Images/Astrid Stawiarz Well, this is awkward... for GQ anyway. One of their journalists made the mistake of implying that, in her new movie Third Person, Olivia Wilde is way too sexy to also play an intelligent writer. Or, to quote Tom Carson exactly:  She's supposed to be a writer too, but your belief in that won't outlast Wilde scampering naked through hotel corridors once Neeson playfully locks her out of his room. With that tush, who'd need to be literate? Who'd want to? Yikes. Wilde wasn't feelin' it, and replied to a tweet sent out by feminist blog and news source Jezebel:  HA. Kiss my smart ass, GQ. GQ has since apologized, tweeting the following message: We regret that boneheaded joke in Tom Carson's "Third Person" review. So does he." Apologies sure are nice, but it'd be even nicer to live in a world where women were treated like, you know, actual people. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • 'Parks And Rec' Fans, Nick Offerman Is Getting 'Metaphysical'!
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 27, 2014
    NBC/Getty Images Parks and Rec fans (and fanatics), stop everything. Ron Swanson... er... Nick Offerman is headed our way via this new "metaphysical drama" (because, yes, that is a thing) called Welcome to Happiness.  He (and his moustache) will star alongside Olivia Thirlby and Kyle Gallner in the film, which is set for a 2015 release. Not much is known about the project, but according to IMDB here's some of what you can expect: A children's book author is the gatekeeper to a mysterious door in his closet that only allows certain people to enter. When he learns where the door leads, his life is forever changed. Sounds like there will be plenty of opportunities for Offerman to get weird. This is a good thing.
