These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Chris O'Donnell stopped by HuffPost Live Thursday afternoon to fill us in on his gig on "NCIS: Los Angeles," his days as a superhero's sidekick in "Batman & Robin" and more. But what really caught our attention was when the 42-year-old father-of-five revealed his favorite TV show to HuffPost Celebrity while answering some of our #nofilter questions.
(To be honest, his answer made us cheer and laugh at the same time).
What’s your guilty pleasure?
The cheeseburger I’m going to have a P.J. Clarke's before I go to the airport is one of my guilty pleasures. »

The movie adaption of classic 60's television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E has had a tough time on its way to the big screen. It's original director Steven Soderbergh dropped out due to budget and casting conflicts brought on my original star George Clooney backing out due to a recurring back injury. Before production on the movie could be cancelled, Guy Ritchie was brought on to direct with Tom Cruise signing on to take the lead role of Napolean Solo. Everything seemed to be going well, with Armie Hammer and Alica Vikander also signing on to star. But it has hit another snag, with Cruise announcing that he is dropping out of the movie to focus on Mission: Impossible 5. Warner Bros. are taking this set back in their stride, with the studio currently looking to recast the role with their eye still set on starting production in the Autumn. »

"Beckham has always wanted to be an action film star, and Cruise promised him a long time ago he can make those dreams come true," a source told National Enquirer magazine.
Beckham, 38, announced he was retiring from football this month after playing the game for more than 20 years, reports entertainmentwise.com.
"Beckham still loved soccer but feels that now is a great time to transition into film while he's still young enough to land top-notch roles," the source added.

Gamers are so disheartened by Microsoft’s recent Xbox One announcement that they’ve actually abandoned hope for the console and bought Nintendo’s Wii-u instead. Purchases of the Wii-u from Amazon.com have increased by 386% since Microsoft’s conference a few days ago, almost quadrupling its sales, and while correlation does not always show causation one would have to be more delusional than the child of Tom Cruise and Harley Quinn not to see it’s certainly the case here.
The astonishing figures suggest that many of the buyers previously anticipating the console’s release have realised there’s no point in waiting for it, so have decided on buying the only next gen-device currently available. The entire internet is now abuzz with brand-loyalists either deserting Microsoft altogether or vowing to just stick with their 360, though the reality of them sticking to that vow once games stop being made for it is pretty unlikely. »

Tom Cruise has dropped out of starring in the big screen adaptation of 1960s spy series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Cruise's departure is said to be due to his commitment to a fifth "Mission: Impossible" which is aiming to shoot later this year. Both Ritchie and actor Armie Hammer remains attached to "U.N.C.L.E." for now.

You know what sucks? You’ve written your film, you’ve got your director, you’ve set up the entire supporting cast, you’re all prepared to start shooting and … your leading man decides to take a powder. That is exactly what happened to Warner Brothers today, with Tom Cruise bailing big time on Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
And why did Tommy-boy decide to peace-out on the role of Napoleon Solo? Because he’s going to be too busy in another update of a popular 60s TV show, playing Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 5. As we all know, Cruise likes to be uber-involved in his Mission: Impossible roles, because those films would be lost without his highly necessary artistic input. So The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is just no longer an important film for him to do.
Can I say good riddance? I was uncertain »

Tom Cruise has reportedly dropped out of the Guy Ritchie-directed The Man from U.N.C.L.E. to focus all his attention on Mission: Impossible 5 with expectations to begin filming before the year's end. However, co-stars Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander are still attached to the project and a replacement is being sought so production can still begin this Fall. I must say, it will be interesting to see who they replace Cruise with, any suggestions? The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is based on the NBC television series, which focused on the adventures of American and Russian members of a secret agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.). The story centered on characters named Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, two agents of U.N.C.L.E. who fought the evil forces of Technological Hierarchy for »

The box office action this summer will be triggered more by superstars than superheroes, contrary to recent history. And the studios have created and endured some messy budgetary headaches and production melodramas to make that happen.
Will they have a profitable run?
Consider the lineup: Leonardo Di Caprio’s star turn as “The Great Gatsby” prompted a $150 million outlay (pre rebates), while the 1974 “Gatsby” with Robert Redford cost $6.5 million. Johnny Depp’s version of “The Lone Ranger” set Disney back nearly $300 million and its overseas potential worries the studio marketers. Brad Pitt’s delayed and re-cut “World War Z” propelled Paramount to a nearly $200 million zombie spend. Then of course there’s Will Smith in “After Earth” — a risky offering costing more than $100 million, and Robert Downey Jr.’s latest “Iron Man” sequel, whose $1 billion worldwide haul will give the actor stratospheric leverage in negotiating the next installment in the franchise with Marvel parent Disney. »

Tom Cruise has dropped out of the upcoming Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie.
The star was lined up to have a lead role in the adaptation of the classic TV series, but has had to pull out to focus on producing and starring in Mission: Impossible 5, Deadline reports.
Warner Bros apparently wants to begin filming The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the autumn, with Paramount and Skydance planning to start shooting the latest M:i before the end of 2013, meaning Cruise had to drop one.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. originally ran for four seasons on NBC during the '60s with Robert Vaughn and David McCallum playing operatives for an agency titled United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.
Tom Cruise fired up his Ducati and barreled out of a fancy Hollywood hotel late last night with a Brand New Chick ridin' on the back ... at least we think it was Tom Cruise ... Let's Investigate!!!Here are the facts ... We know ... a mystery man sporting a motorcycle helmet left the Chateau Marmont hotel around 11:00 pm with a woman on the backseat.

We first heard concrete news of yet another big-screen adaptation of a classic TV series – namely, 60′s spy romp The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which has languished in development hell since the 1990′s – quite some time ago. Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin was originally named as director, with a script by Max Borenstein.
Not long after that, Steven Soderbergh was reportedly on board to helm the project from a script by Scott Z. Burns (Side Effects), with George Clooney eyed for the lead. Clooney then abandoned the project, and while the film was left on the ever-busy Soderbergh’s back-burner for quite some time, he too eventually bowed out.
Now, Deadline reports that Cruise has left the project in order to focus on Mission: Impossible ...

After briefly being attached to the big screen version of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," Tom Cruise has officially left the building according to Deadline. The reason? He would be busy doing "Mission: Impossible 5."
The Warner Bros. project, an adaptation of the TV show that ran from 1964 through 1968, has suffered many setbacks. First, the original tandem recruited to make the film in 2010, director Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney left the project with the actor blaming his back injury as the reason for the departure. So Soderbergh went on a mission to find Clooney's replacement with names such as Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling, and Michael Fassbender. Then, in 2011 Soderbergh left the project as well. One month later, Guy Ritchie stepped in, and so far, he's still at the helm. We think...
Tom Cruise is clearing his schedule for Mission: Impossible 5. The 50-year-old actor will no longer star in the upcoming movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E., his rep confirms to E! News. Before dropping out of the movie remake of the 1960s TV series, Cruise was set to play the lead role alongside costar Armie Hammer. Guy Ritchie will direct. Cruise's official Twitter account also posted the casting news earlier today, sharing a collage of Cruise as his Mi character Ethan Hunt with the caption, "Goodbye U.N.C.L.E., hello E.T.H.A.N." Earlier this month, it was announced that Cruise would be reprising his famous spy role once again for a fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible »
Want to drop a major piece of casting news? Let it loose on the Friday before the season’s first holiday weekend. Deadline Hollywood reports the genuinely surprising news that Tom Cruise has quit the already-beleaguered The Man from U.N.C.L.E. feature he has been attached to since March. The film has already been through a few incarnations, most notably when it was set to be directed by Steven Soderbergh with George Clooney starring, but it looked to finally be on track with Guy Ritchie directing and Armie Hammer co-starring as one half of an agent duo from the United Network Command for Law Enforcement. Cruise has reportedly stepped aside because of good old-fashioned scheduling conflicts, as he is now turning his attention to producing and starring in that upcoming Mission: Impossible sequel (the fifth film in the franchise). With U.N.C.L.E. still set to film this fall, Cruise »

There have been so many false starts in the attempt to bring The Man From U.N.C.L.E to the big screen, we've given up trying to summarize them all. Suffice it to say that fans believe there is a curse on any such attempt. The latest development won't do anything to dispel those beliefs. Tom Cruise, long rumored to be starring in the role of Napoleon Solo originated on the TV series by Robert Vaughn, has formally bowed out. Ironically, he's bypassed the U.N.C.L.E. project in order to do yet another installment of the Mission: Impossible series. So Cruise has dropped one film inspired by a classic 1960s spy franchise in favor of another. Still, Warner Brothers remains keen on making U.N.C.L.E. a new franchise and Guy Ritchie is still attached as director. Arnie Hammer is also still with the film, »

Tom Cruise is taking a step back by stepping out of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. to focus on producing and starring in Mission Impossible 5. Cruise had been slated to co-star with Armie Hammer in the Guy Ritchie directed movie adaptation of the '60s television series. When the project was first launched, Steven Soderbergh was directing and George Clooney was attached to star. Both men have since left the project with Soderbergh slowly slipping into retirement and Clooney focusing on other projects like Gravity and Monuments Men. So who can fill Tom Cruise's spot? Here are five guys who could step in and yes, many of them have worked with Ritchie before.

I like meeting actors for the first time, when their careers are starting to take off, before they've erected that protective coating that movie stars often need to survive. I was curious to check out Andrea Riseborough, especially, because she's one of those actresses--much like Meryl Streep-- who vanishes into every role. She's a chameleon, utterly unrecognizable from one movie to the next. She explains why in our flip cam interview below. Like most folks, I first discovered the Brit stage actress in 2011 as Wallis Simpson in Madonna's "W.E.," and was astonished at how she not only embodied this familiar woman but carried the film, which was critically drubbed, but Riseborough emerged unscathed. Casting directors have jumped on the Rada-trained actress, who is now 31 and lives in Boise, Idaho with her artist boyfriend. This spring she's starred in back-to-back movies "Disconnect," "Welcome to the Punch," replaced Jessica Chastain »
