28 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Denzel Washington is back on the big screen this week, reuniting with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua for tough-as-nails thriller The Equalizer.

A two-time Academy Award-winner (with a further four nominations under his belt), Washington has achieved just about all there is to achieve in his glittering Hollywood career. Picking out his five best movies is a tricky job, but we've attempted to do it anyway. Read on to find out which Denzel movies we think are the absolute essentials...

Glory (1989)

Edward Zwick's American Civil War drama starred Washington as Private Silas Trip, a soldier in the first Union Army unit to be made up entirely of African-American men.

He was nominated two years prior for playing activist Steve Biko in Cry Freedom, but this was the movie that »

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Kenneth Lonergan Returns With Manchester-By-The-Sea Starring Matt Damon

8 September 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first time writer-director Kenneth Lonergan collaborated with Matt Damon, it resulted in Margaret – a lengthy dramatic film that languished in an editing battle for almost five years. Eventually surfacing in 2011, it had an extremely limited, though critically successful run. Now, Lonergan is readying his return with a new project, titled Manchester-By-The-Sea, and it seems Matt Damon was keen to climb aboard for the lead role.

The story will see Damon as a Boston plumber whose brother sadly dies. In the aftermath, he finds himself having to care for his 16 year old nephew, although a tragic secret from his past threatens to get in the way. Wider casting has yet to be announced, though it should be noted that Lonergan’s previous two directorial efforts – 2000’s You Can Count On Me and 2011’s Margaret – both featured Mark Ruffalo and Matthew Broderick, so it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they might appear here, »

The memorial service held Sunday in New York City for the late Joan Rivers was everything the comedienne and television host would have wanted: a star-studded affair complete with celebrities galore, expletive-filled tributes, and yes, even paparazzi.

Rivers, who died on September 4 at age 81, had outlined detailed wishes for her funeral in her 2012 book "I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me."

"I want craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!" she wrote. "I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents."

While Streep wasn't present Sunday, plenty of other celebrities were, including Kathy Griffin, Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, Whoopi Goldberg, Diane Sawyer, Rosie O'Donnell, Barbara Walters, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Michael Kors, Bernadette Peters, Alan Cumming, and Donald Trump. Stars that offered personal tributes to Rivers during the ceremony included Howard Stern, »

Justin Bieber finally shaves his 'stache in Instagram video

21 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the pantheon of celebrity mustaches, Justin Bieber’s recent attempt ranks somewhere between a Matthew Broderick and an Ashton Kutcher. Unlike the greats—say, Hulk Hogan’s or Salvador Dali’s—a mustache like this mostly incites a desire to shave it off.

Thankfully, Bieber has taken the hint. In an Instagram video posted yesterday, he grabs a razor and an encouraging friend to help him say goodbye to wispy lip fuzz and hello to hairlessness. Bieber turns shaving in his cavernous bathroom into a full-on production, with sultry whispering, smoldering gazes, and awkward close-ups of his chin. »

August 20th, 2014, 5:43pm– Yet another article has surfaced from yesterday’s eventful press conference for It’s Only a Play and this time we get to learn what Rupert Grint‘s co-stars think about our favourite redhead and his upcoming Broadway debut. He told us in June that he was feeling terrified about being on stage in New York and this is apparently also the impression he gave his co-stars when first meeting them. i.1.rupert-grint-party-report Megan Mullally talks about that here: “But he’s adorable and lovely, and he was an absolute basket case for the first week or so. The first night when I met him, there was a little dinner, and he was standing outside, smoking a cigarette, and I was, like, ‘Are you Rupert?’ And he said he was, and he just instantly announced that he was terrified. I said, ‘Oh, you’re going to be great. »
