This Friday, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be released. It’s the fifth film in the iconic franchise, but sadly stands as only the third film of its director Christopher McQuarrie in 15 years since he got behind the camera. That’s a real shame, because Christopher McQuarrie is Hollywood’s best-kept secret when he really should be their pride and joy.
Christopher McQuarrie was so damn hot in the mid-90s. He wrote the script for the classic The Usual Suspects and came home with an Oscar. He ended up using that clout to get his feature-directing debut made with the criminally underrated The Way of the Gun, released in 2000. The film failed both critically and commercially – a domestic gross of $6 million, and a worldwide gross of only $13 million against a $21 million budget – and McQuarrie went from insider to outcast in Hollywood.
Fast forward eight years and McQuarrie had only »

What happened to "54"? Director Mark Christopher's glitter bomb of sex, drugs and debauchery in New York's 1970 party scene vanished almost as quickly as it dropped in 1998. It turned out that Christopher had directed two films: his version, and Miramax's version. Now, we get to see his version, which premiered in Berlin this year. "54: The Director's Cut" is indeed a new gay cult classic, a glorious, hedonistic revelry that transports us to an underground utopia of sexually liberated freak flyers, only to plunge us into its inevitable ruination. We follow gorgeous-bodied Shane (Ryan Phillippe) out of his dingy New Jersey life and into the titular Studio 54, where he hustles and parties with aspiring 54 singer Anita (Salma Hayek) and her busboy husband (Breckin Meyer) while selling his body and soul for the club's desperately pathetic owner (Mike Myers). Shane, who's almost exclusively in his undies, works his way up to being a bartender, »

They grow up so fast! This saying seems to ring especially true for celebrity kids, who sprint through their childhoods in the spotlight. Just this year, we've been mesmerized by how much Ava Phillippe has taken after her parents, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, and how Brandon Lee is already a heartbreaker like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. The surprises keep on coming as these famous kids join Instagram and give us a behind-the-scenes look at their worlds. Read on to learn about what they share on social media, then see celebrity children following in their parents' footsteps on the red carpet. »
Could Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava be more precious?! The petite 39-year-old has been vacationing in Rome, Italy, with her 15-year-old mini-me since Tuesday. Witherspoon has been documenting her mother-daughter trip via her Instagram account, but the photo above really caught our eye. The "Legally Blonde" star captioned the photo, "What an honor to see Mr. Valentino at dinner last night in Rome," tagging the famous fashion designer/good friend and adding the hashtag #legend. And while a friendship between Reese and Valentino is enough to make anyone jealous, what we really love about this pic is how much Ava looks like her famous mama. She and Witherspoon could be sisters – scratch that – twins! Ava is Reese’s oldest child (and only daughter) from her first marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe, and we must admit, the teen is a perfect combination of her two genetically blessed parents.

Michael Ealy will soon be keeping Secrets and Lies. The actor has been cast as the lead for Season 2 of the ABC anthology series, according to E! Online. Ealy will follow in the footsteps of Ryan Phillippe, who anchored Season 1 of the drama as Ben Crawford, the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy. Per E! Online, Ealy will play Eric Warner. When Season 2 begins, Eric is at the top of his game. He’s smart, well-educated and hard working and the heir apparent to his family’s private equity firm in Charlotte, Nc. Newly married to “the one” and walking on air, he’s attending a party to honor dad passing over the reins when suddenly tragedy strikes: his wife Kate is murdered, and life, as he knows it, is over. Of the Secrets and Lies Season 1 cast, only Juliette Lewis will return for Season 2, as her character, »

Well, he didn't have much luck with the Fox TV network, after starring in 2 failed drama series in "Almost Human" and the last season of the "The Following" (2 shows I actually enjoyed; both are now canceled). So let's see if the luck of ABC rubs off on him. Michael Ealy has booked the leading man role in the upcoming second season of ABC's anthology series "Secrets & Lies" in which he'll star opposite Juliette Lewis. Season 1 of "Secrets and Lies" premiered on March 1, 2015, airing on Sunday nights at 9pm, and starred Ryan Phillippe as a family man who discovers the body of a young boy and quickly becomes the prime suspect in his death, and has to clear his name. Based on the Australian TV series of the same name, the 10-episode first season averaged roughly 6 million viewers per episode, and was renewed for a second season on May 7, 2015. Juliette Lewis also co-starred in season one, »

TV's best supporting actors shared their first Hollywood crushes during The Hollywood Reporter's Supporting Actor Emmy Roundtable. "In the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," Timothy Simons (Veep) explains, "there was a girl who worked in the Foot Clan hideout, and I think she was a featured extra, but she seemed very dangerous." Responses continued on, covering the basics: "Michael J. Fox!" "Ryan Phillippe!" "Matt Damon," Kathryn Hahn (Happyish) said to a confused Amanda Peet (Togetherness). "Matt Damon was, like, last week." "Oh no, not Matt Damon, I'm horrible! Matt … You know, from The Outsiders!" "Dillon!"

One has to feel for Rosamund Pike: No actor deserves to have their Oscar-nominated breakout role tailed by the likes of “Return to Sender,” a queasy but strangely gutless exploitation pic that plays not unlike a tardy dry run for “Gone Girl.” As it is, the tight-lipped froideur that she brought to David Fincher’s adult blockbuster provides the only notes of curiosity or complexity in Fouad Mikati’s otherwise unsurprising rape-revenge thriller. As an uptight surgical nurse taking a roundabout way toward closure after surviving a brutal home invasion, Pike constructs a dark-hearted heroine who could potentially beat Amy Dunne at her own game — if armed with a less misogynistic script and a lick of human credibility. Without these, “Return to Sender” looks like nothing more threatening than VOD fodder for Stateside distrib Image Entertainment; paltry B.O. numbers show U.K. auds have already refused delivery.

Like a fine wine, Cruel Intentions gets better with age. So, apparently, do the beautiful ladies who made life living hell for the insufferably handsome and self-confident Ryan Phillippe back in 1999. While there was no sign of Sebastian Valmont in this reunion pic, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar made the most of their recent gathering, sharing it on social media. Best girls night of the year!!! #cruelintentions A photo posted by Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) on May 28, 2015 at 8:08pm Pdt The three ladies reunited at Rockwell: Table & Stage in Los Angeles to attend a performance of "The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions." And though it.s unauthorized, it clearly has the blessing of three very important cast members. Reese Witherspoon shared more images of their reaction to the show as it continued: @sarahmgellar Sebastian and Kathryn reunite! #cruelintentionsmusical #90sflashback A photo posted by Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon »
Taking it back to the '90s! On Thursday night, the cast of one of our favorite teen films, the oh-so-scandalous "Cruel Intentions," reunited in Hollywood -- and it was Everything. Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair, who all starred in the 1999 flick alongside Ryan Phillippe and Joshua Jackson, got together at Rockwell: Table & Stage last night to watch "The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions." The trio was in the house to celebrate film director's Roger Kumble's birthday. We're told the three spent the entire show singing along to the songs, which included cuts from the film's soundtrack as well as '90s hits like "Love Fool" and "2 Become 1." The women were seen taking selfies with each other and drinking martinis while watching the performance. After the show, the film's cast mingled with the performers, with Reese giving them all presents -- boxes of candy -- backstage. »

It's the dream of any amateur theatre company staging a musical version of a classic film for the original's stars to actually turn up.
The trio posed for several photos together as they caught the new adaptation at Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Angeles.
"Best girls' night of the year!", Witherspoon tweeted after the show.

It was the second time that Gellar had attended the show, having previously sat in the front row last month.
What Is This Life?! Thank you @sarahmgellar @reesewitherspoon and @therealselmablair for coming to the show tonight! »
Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair, stars of ’90s teen seduction tale “Cruel Intentions,” reunited Thursday in Los Angeles at Rockwell Table & Stage’s “The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions.”
Roger Kumble‘s 1999 pic, based on “Dangerous Liaisons,” catapulted the stars to fame, including then-couple Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, earned Gellar and Blair “Best Kiss” at the MTV Movie Awards and tallied $75 million at the box office.
Kumble, along with his wife, were also in the house. The Thursday night show happened to fall on Kumble’s birthday so during curtain call, a cake was brought out and the cast sang happy birthday with the whole audience.
During the entire show, Witherspoon, Blair and Gellar were singing along to all the songs, reciting lines from the movie, drinking martinis — and of course, taking selfies.

Ryan Phillippe is fondly remembered for his roles in '90s films like Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and 54 - all of which likely shaped your adolescence - but it's worth noting that the 40-year-old actor, father, and philanthropist is still insanely hot. He may actually be hotter than ever. Ryan recently returned to the small screen in the ABC drama Secrets & Lies, and gave us lots of proof that he's just as sexy as he was two decades ago. He's still got the bad boy thing going, but now with a sweet "cool dad" vibe - and don't even get us started on how amazing he looks sans shirt. Your teenage crush Ryan Phillippe is still very, very attractive, and we've rounded up 32 recent photos that show all the different types of swag that he has. Keep reading to see them all now. »
Though there are a handful of good documentaries that tell the story of disco and capture the genre's dancefloor exuberance, feature films looking back on its heyday often fall short – or at least miss the finer points. (54, the Ryan Phillippe-Salma Hayek flick about Studio 54, didn't even include its best-known song "I Will Survive.")
Jonathan Ullman, the director of 2011's Trouble in the Heights, is looking to change that with a new independent movie about the Paradise Garage, Studio 54's funkier, underground downtown cousin. "The Paradise Garage was more than a nightclub, »
Ryan Phillippe broke social media and TV fan hearts when they realized he would not be returning for the second season of ABC drama “Secrets and Lies.” Phillippe cleared the air on Twitter saying his work — hailed as some of his best in a career that spans three decades — was always intended to be a limited tale about a murder investigation, and that the show will focus on a new crime come fall. Let us be grateful for the Phillippe screen time we had, not the Phillippe screen time we lost. And while we’re at it, TheWrap has compiled list. »

It has never been harder to predict the network schedules, as the number of series (including many shorter-flight ones) has increased exponentially in recent years and networks seem more willing to stick with lower-rated shows for a variety of reasons. So while it’s admittedly a futile exercise, it doesn’t keep us from trying to spitball once again. So, here’s a look at one way things could play out:
After strengthening the Thursday 10 p.m. hour last fall with “How to Get Away With Murder,” a priority for ABC this fall is to bolster the final hour of primetime on other nights. “Quantico” and “Wicked City,” both of which should have some male appeal, would be good fits to close Tuesday and Wednesday. And though “Castle” is heading into the homestretch of its run, it’s more important that ABC establish stronger Tuesday and Wednesday 10 p.m. »

Mom! Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe’s kids, 15-year-old Ava and 11-year-old Deacon, haven’t seen Cruel Intentions yet — especially since mom and dad have a seriously steamy sex scene in the flick, the Oscar-winning actress revealed. "They don't have any interest in seeing me in movies. It's weird for them,” the Hot Pursuit actress, 39, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live! on Thursday, May 7. “They're like, 'This is so weird!' And especially seeing me and their dad having sex. It's so weird. Not [...] »
