Unluckily for the .Snow White and the Huntsman. star, the two guys had a trick planned. Just as they drenched themselves with the small buckets, the two guys drenched the star with another gigantic bucket of water.
Curtis James Jackson III, better known as 50 Cent, has uploaded a video of him about to take the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. But then he said "f--k the bucket of ice," and dumped the water off the verandah. Gasp! Plot Twist!
The rapper then challenged Floyd Mayweather to take his .Els Challenge.
"This is a special Asl-els challenge for you, Floyd,. hedared the boxing super-star. "If you can read one full page of a Harry Potter book...I'll give $750,000 to whatever charitable organization you want to."
Step aside, Charlie Sheen: Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are the latest celebrity duo to up the ante in the viral Als Ice Bucket Challenge. While the two failed to shower themselves with cash in a manner similar to the former Two and a Half Men star, the Equals co-stars opted not only to pour a bucket of freezing cold water over their heads, but also dunked their faces in the ice bucket for a solid 15 seconds. "Here's to the fight against Als. Richard, I love you. Hathaway, get this—this is a f--king real challenge," K.Stew says to challenger Anne Hathaway in her signature expletive-filled fashion before she, Hoult and pal Scott Fahrendorf proceed to immerse themselves in the »
The world knows him as Bond, but his name was almost Wayne… Bruce Wayne. As it turns out, former 007 Pierce Brosnan almost starred in Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989, but passed on the role because he felt it was too ridiculous. In a recent Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session, Brosnan was asked if he ever considered playing the iconic role. His answer may surprise you:
“Yes I did. I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of Batman. But I just couldn’t really take it seriously, any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I?”

Back in the 80s, as Warner Bros. prepared to bring The Dark Knight to the screen in Tim Burton’s Batman, a number of actors found themselves under consideration for the Caped Crusader prior to the casting of Michael Keaton, inlcuding Mel Gibson, Tom Selleck, Charlie Sheen, Kevin Costner and even Bill Murray. Another name on the list was that of Pierce Brosnan, and the former Bond has spoken about his decision to turn down the role during a Reddit Ama…
“I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of Batman. But I just couldn’t really take it seriously, any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I? Don’t get me wrong, because I love Batman, and I grew up on Batman. As a kid in Ireland, »

If you've been on the internet at all the past couple weeks, you've undoubtedly seen the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, a charity trend sweeping the nation to raise money to fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Many people seem to think that Charlie Sheen delivered the best video of this challenge by dumping $10,000 in cash on his head, all of which he was donating to the cause. However, Dave Grohl and his band Foo Fighters have taken this fun, charitable trend to incredible new heights by creating an elaborate recreation of the infamous pig's blood scene at the prom in Stephen King's Carrie. It's awesome. Watch! Here's the Foo Fighters Als Ice Bucket Challenge video (via Rolling Stone): Grohl was challenged by friend and fellow musician Zac Brown of the appropriately named Zac Brown Band, »

In the past, Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence have both had successful sitcoms that ran for many years. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the duo's new FX sitcom, Partners, has much of a future. It's very likely to be cancelled.
On Partners, a snobby lawyer (Grammer) and an overly ethics-driven lawyer (Lawrence) become partners and end up helping each other get their lives in order. The rest of the cast includes McKaley Miller, Telma Hopkins, Danièle Watts, Rory O’Malley, and Edi Patterson.
As you may recall, FX made a 10/90 deal for Partners with Lionsgate TV and Debmar-Mercury. If the sitcom's first 10 episodes reached a certain ratings threshold then the cable channel was obligated to order 90 episodes for season two -- assuring the studios would have enough episodes for a (potentially very lucrative) syndication package.

Yes, every star in Hollywood may doing the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, but that doesn't mean that Miley Cyrus can't put her own spin on things. The pop star decided to substitute the "Ice Bucket Challenge" with the "Rice Bucket Challenge" after she was dared to take part by her younger sister, Noah Cyrus. (Noah, for her part, went for the actual ice water.) But why did Miley decide to skip out on the water? When she posted the video to Instagram, she noted that "it ain't about the pourin' it's about the payin' and awareness." Maybe she was inspired by Charlie Sheen?

Charlie Sheen leads Oliver Stone's emotional ground assault as a teenage college drop-out who volunteers to serve as a "grunt" in the Us Army in Vietnam. In Sheen's best performance, we see his psychological disintegration as he witnesses atrocities and becomes caught in the power struggle between a pair of veteran sergeants (Willem Dafoe and Tom Berenger) when one of them precipitates a massacre of villagers. Based on Stone's own experiences and the winner of four Oscars including Best Picture, this is a sobering corrective to John Wayne's flag-waving The Green Berets. »
The latest 10/90 comedy project has launched, and it proves what star power can do. With comedy veterans Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence in the lead roles, “Partners” already brings more consistent laughs then FX's other 10/90 project, Charlie Sheen‘s “Anger Management.” Unfortunately for Sheen, he's forced to do the lion's share of the work alone on his show, while “Partners” is able to play off the differences and chemistry of its lead characters.

Movie stars and other celebrities have often been associated with gambling, but it seems that, as poker and other casino games become more popular with the general public, the same is true of the rich and famous. Here we’ll look at the gambling preferences of some big names…
Wads Of Money
Having wads of money sitting around in a bank account isn’t much use to your average movie star at the moment, as interest rates are pathetically low. Also there’s the worry that the bank might go bust! It’s easy to see the allure of gambling for celebrities used to glamorous lifestyles and the adrenaline thrill of stardom.
High-stakes poker nights organized by stars like Tobey Maguire, Leo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon is a favourite among the rich and famous. However, baccarat, another casino card game, is more widely known as the game of choice among high rollers, »

Every bit as generic as its title, “Partners” is the latest big-name-toplined (Kelsey Grammer, Martin Lawrence) throwback, courtesy of Debmar-Mercury’s 10/90 model, which predicates whether a series runs 100 episodes on the first batch meeting certain ratings benchmarks. Like “Anger Management,” featuring Charlie Sheen, the show itself is practically an afterthought, inasmuch as it’s designed to feel like an instant rerun — something that can help fill the sitcom-starved syndication pipeline. But yikes, watching these two comedy veterans trying to keep such a leaky, woefully flat vehicle afloat is more depressing than nostalgic.
Grammer plays Allen Braddock, an ethics-challenged lawyer being fired from dad’s influential law firm for reasons unknown as the pilot opens. Desperate for a job, he by chance encounters Marcus Jackson (Lawrence), a community activist who operates a law practice out of his basement, in a house he shares with his mother (Telma Hopkins), daughter (Daniele Watts »

In the lineage of movie sequels that outdid their predecessors, there’s The Godfather Part 2, Aliens, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, and now…Sharknado 2: The Second One. Sharknado premiered on SyFy last July, and became an instant hit with audiences, aided by the fact that viewers were encouraged to Tweet about the movie as they watched it.
What was it that made the latest offering from The Asylum so eminently watchable? The gleefully silly, go-for-broke absurdity of it all, where nothing was outside the realm of possibilities, and the low $2 million budget didn’t stop them crafting some wild set-pieces, even if the effects were diabolical, the acting mostly terrible, and the central plot completely forgettable.
It was a charming movie, and the clear love with which it was made earned it a place in the hearts of cineastes the world over for its “so bad it’s good” quality, »
