They've conquered the music world, but Jay Z and Beyoncé are now embarking on a health-inspired challenge - going vegan for 22 days. "On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!" the music mogul wrote on his Life + Times website. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought." He cited the numerical serendipity of his eating quest and noted »

Alicia Silverstone is still a total Betty!The "Clueless" star looked better than ever at the American Music Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles, showing up with a look that would make Cher Horowitz proud.With a perfect face of makeup, her hair in loose waves and a short black and gold dress, the 37-year-old mother of one made us feel like it was 1995 all over again.Since being in the classic '90s flick, Silverstone went on to play Batgirl, appeared on Broadway, campaigned for PETA and became an outspoken vegetarian. She got married in 2005 to Christopher Jarecki and welcomed baby boy Bear Blu in 2011. She also recently reunited with her "Clueless" costar Jeremy Sisto in 2012, when she appeared on his ABC show "Suburgatory."So what happened to the rest of her costars ... and have they aged as well as she did?

Music award shows can tend to have an eyesore of a red carpet, but that wasn't the case at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 24). Narrowing the pleasantly large field of good looks down to the best few was no easy task, but a handful of names rose to the top.
Chief among the stunners was Lady Gaga, the new face of Versace. Sure, she rode in on a horse made of people (She still is Lady Gaga, after all), but she wowed in the gown -- the same gown from the new Versace campaign preview.
"Glee" star Naya Rivera was the very definition of glam in her black gown. The playful peekabo on her chest might have turned off some, but we're not mad about it. Alicia Silverstone's presence at the event may have been bizarre, but there was nothing to complain about when it came to that dress. »
Check out who all hit the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards. Zoe Saldana, One Direction, R Kelly, Pete Wentz, Naya Rivera, Marc Anthony, Lil Mama, Lance Bass, Kesha, Katy Perry, Jordin Sparks, Joan Jett, Jaimie Alexander, Heidi Klum, Emma Roberts, Chris Daughtry, Daughtry, TLC, Lady Antebellum, Miley Cyrus, Austin Mahone, Ariana Grande, Alicia Silverstone and 2 Chainz were AMAs friendly at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 24, 2013. »

The Greek gods always behaved badly, but in producer Marc Turtletaub’s remarkably feeble helming debut, they’re merely insipid, despite a heaven-sent cast grossly squandered on the kind of bland comedy reminiscent of 1970s TV series like “Love, American Style.” This Gotham-set update, about a couple of colorless mortals who save the world when a lovesick Apollo puts out the sun, has zero texture and negative charm: Tellingly, Athena, goddess of wisdom, is absent from the lifeless script. So wishy-washy it’s possibly unreleasable, “Gods Behaving Badly” is best relegated to airplanes and VOD.
Marie Phillips’ source novel focused on aging and loss; Turtletaub (a producer on “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Sunshine Cleaning”) and writing partner Josh Goldfaden ditch the serious stuff for romantic comedy, opening with narrator Zeus (Christopher Walken) at a gyro cart in New York, spoonfeeding background info to auds: “Greece was sublime, but we wanted to move on. »

The deities of Mount Olympus descend to the streets of New York City, where they wreak havoc on mortals and much worse on the audience, in Marc Turtletaub’s myth-inspired comedy, Gods Behaving Badly. Rounding up a cast of stars -- many who had their heyday two decades ago -- this outdated, unfunny satire feels like an extended SNL sketch from the early ‘90’s, and one that probably would have been tossed into the wastepaper basket. Some bankable names and a mildly clever idea should send these immortals straight to VOD, with a small courtesy release in select cities.
Based on the book by Marie Phillips, the concept is simple: The Greek gods are alive and well, and currently living in a Manhattan townhouse, where they engage in endless petty »

Billed as "a brass-knuckle punch in its startling revelation of teenage savages" and based on the book of the same name by Evan Hunter – aka crime writer Ed McBain – who drew on his own experiences as a teacher in the Bronx – Blackboard Jungle ushered in the age of the teenage delinquent. In London, Brooks's film attracted crowds of Teddy Boys, who slashed cinema seats, danced in the aisles and actually started a riot.
The reason for such shocking behaviour wasn't so much the film's content, which today garners a more sober 12 rating, but because of the use of »
There will be no third season of Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s Lifetime series The Client List. I hear it was a mutual decision between the network and producer Sony Pictures TV. While the show’s ratings slipped in Season 2 — from 2.7 million for the premiere to 2 million for the finale — I hear the reasons were mainly talent-related. As we reported in June, Lifetime and Sony TV were in a creative standoff with star Hewitt over storylines for a potential third season after the actress, who is an executive producer on the show, had requested that Brian Hallisay, her real-life fiance and father of her baby, also play her character Riley’s baby daddy on the show. I hear the issues eventually became too much for Lifetime and Sony TV, leading to today’s formal cancellation. Helping the decision is the fact that since the end of The Client List‘s second season, »

Ben Affleck has the support of former Batgirl Alicia Silverstone. The 37-year-old actress, who played Batgirl alongside George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell in the 1997 flick Batman & Robin, says she thinks Affleck will do a fantastic job playing the caped hero in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. "That sounds so cool," Silverstone told us at last night's L.A. premiere of Ass Backwards. "I did hear about that. That sounds cool." "I think it's great," she added. "I like him." It was announced back in August that Affleck would portray Batman alongside Superman Henry Cavill in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel. Silverstone joins the list of celebs »
Exclusive: TV Land has given a cast-contingent pilot order to Younger, a single-camera comedy written and executive produced by Sex And the City creator Darren Star. The project has been a top priority for the network, which put it on fast-track development only two months ago. Based on the novel by Pamela Redmond Satran, Younger centers on a suddenly-single New Jersey housewife and mother in her early 40s who, unable to restart her career, decides to lie about her age and successfully passes herself off as a twentysomething. Armed with a makeover and new resume, she wins a coveted position at the city’s hottest publishing company. Pretending to be “younger” doesn’t hurt in the bar scene, either, as guys line up like never before. Younger expands TV Land’s push in the single-camera format. The network’s other pilot, Jennifer Falls starring Jaime Pressly, originally developed as a multi-cam, »

Rome Film Festival topper Marco Mueller has unveiled a rich lineup mixing crowdpleasers with more esoteric fare and comprising recent standout titles but also many world preems, including new works by Jonathan Demme, Isabel Coixet, and U.S. multi-hyphenate Mark Turtletaub’s first feature “Gods Behaving Badly.”

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 1993...
What a year 1993 was. It saw the release of Star Fox on the Super Nintendo. Bill Clinton became president. Season three of Deep Space Nine premiered on Us television. UK politician Douglas Hurd visited Argentina. Cyndi Lauper released her album Hat Full Of Stars.
Aside from those earth shattering events, we'll probably remember 1993, in cinema terms, as the year Jurassic Park dominated the box office like an angry Tyrannosaurus. A true phenomenon, its profits doubled those of the second most watched film in 1993 cinemas, Mrs Doubtfire, and almost three times as much as the movie below that - the Harrison Ford thriller, The Fugitive.
But as ever, there was so much more to the 1993 movie landscape than dinosaurs and Robin Williams dressed as an old woman. »
NBC's "The Blacklist" has set a new ratings record with Live+3 ratings for the show's second episode showing an increase of 5.1 million viewers (45%) on top of the live overnight numbers of 11.3 million. That's a new record for Live+3 data.
It basically means it's a show that many are DVR-ing, in fact the new numbers confirm that the second episode retained around 97% of the pilot's sizeable audience. [Source: Unreality]
Fox has picked up "The Simpsons" for a historic 26th season of the animated comedy. The longest-running, American primetime scripted show in television history, the 25th season premiere on Sunday saw a 12% rise in ratings from last season's average.
