Jada Pinkett Smith is putting on her dancing and producing shoes for "Salsa," a new romantic comedy with William Levy. Levy has appeared on a number of Spanish-language TV shows, but his star has been rising in the States because of a smoldering season on "Dancing With the Stars." Naturally, he plays a salsa teacher who helps Pinkett Smith's character get her groove back. Whether that's metaphorical or the more old-fashioned way has yet to be seen, but with romcom expert Amy Heckerling writing and directing, all signs point to a love connection. Levy's got a number of projects coming up, including Tyler Perry's "Single Moms Club" and the drama "Addicted." There's also buzz that the up-and-comer really wants to hit up Broadway. He's hoping for a chance to play Emilio Estefan in the singer's autobiographical Broadway musical. He's also been busy with a new Pepsi campaign. Unfortunately for everyone ever, »

Divergent superfans, this one is for you. At the beginning of setting up this dystopian adventure, readers learn that all the people living in this world are sorted into five different factions when they come of age. An aptitude test helps place them, but the final decision is theirs (sounds wonderfully familiar, right?). While Beatrice, Caleb and all the rest had a tough decision to make, we got to thinking about where some Hollywood celebs would find themselves if they suddenly woke up in this world. Here are our best guesses for Jennifer Lawrence (Honest!), Lady Gaga (Brave!) and more. »

How many times have we seen an incredible trailer only to be horribly let down by the end result? Be it smart marketing, stunning visuals, familiar tropes or just an amazing song, we have all been hyped to the point of inevitable disappointment at one time or another. This article will list ten trailers that were better than their actual film.
Some films listed are so bad that a half decent trailer was always going to be the best we could hope for, but some selections might suprise you. So sit back and watch these trailers while marvelling at what could and should have been.
10. Batman And Robin
Batman and Robin has deservedly appeared on numerous ‘Worst Film Ever’ lists. With an over bloated cast, horrific dialogue, “Can you stay cool Batman?” and Bat nipples so pointy a 3D re-release might be worthwhile, the film took everything negative said about »
Say what you want, but Debra Messing is always the perfect actress for a comedy pilot! The good thing is that folks from CBS share our opinion, because we learned that Will & Grace star is set to play the female lead in their (yet) untitled (but previously known as Mother’s Day) comedy which comes from Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky. Written by Rottenberg and Zuritsky (who served as co-executive producers on Messing’s Smash), this untitled single-cam project is based on an Israeli format and will center on a married mom who struggles to balance family, work and life. Not hard to guess that Messing...

The Fantastic Four actress made the comment while promoting her new book 'The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True To You.'
She told The New York Daily News that her lifestyle tips will be more relatable to everyday mums.
"Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she's the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn't grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: repurposing. »

Jessica Alba is 'much more grounded' than Gwyneth Paltrow. The 'Fantastic Four' actress and eco-friendly entrepreneur - who recently released her new book 'The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You' - thinks that although she and the 'Iron Man' star probably live a 'similar lifestyle' these days, her tips are more relatable than the advice Gwyneth gives on her blog goop.com and in her new healthy cookbook 'It's All Good' because she grew up less well off. Speaking to the New York Daily News, the 31-year-old actress said: 'Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she's the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn't grow up with a bunch of money, »
If Sue Heck and Cher Horowitz went to high school together, they wouldn’t exactly run with the same crowd.

Not-so-shocking confession: The 2013 MTV Movie Award nominations were just announced, and I'm psyched about it. Sure, the ceremony has become overrun with Twihard vote-in victories, but that doesn't mean the ceremony is a total drag. In fact, I can think of five times the MTV Movie Awards restored my faith in award show culture and, subsequently, life itself. Here are the five greatest moments in MTV Movie Award history.
5. 1992: Best Movie -- Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Going all the way back to the first ceremony, MTV rained trophies on Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and with good reason: It's one of the most watchable action movies ever and features some of the most well-developed characters in the history of the genre. Sorry, Lisbeth Salander, but Sarah Connor has more grit and fabulousness in one strap of her »
"Hey guys! I am so excited to be guest blogging on The Kind Life -- my husband Cory and I just went vegan in the beginning of the year, and Alicia's book has been a saving grace," Mowry wrote in her first blog post. "The recipes in it are sooo amazing, and I always make sure to bring it with me when I go grocery shopping."
Mowry also shared her own ginger acorn squash soup recipe, describing it as "deliciously cozy comfort food, but still light enough to enjoy on a warn spring day."

Okay, Silverstone fans, cross your fingers, because you all are very close to getting a wish come true. Alicia Silverstone is very close to starring in a new Lifetime series. She’ll lead the pilot, but the waters are murky. There’s no telling whether this one will make it to a full series order or not. The new drama pilot is called Hr.
I just saw Silverstone in 2012′s Butter. It took me a moment to recognize her, but that voice of her and twisted mouth is very recognizable. Not only is it good to read about her landing a starring role, but it seems like Hr has a solid chance at becoming a Lifetime series and I’ll tell you why.
The network ordered the pilot last summer, along with Cinnamon Girl, The Secret Lives Of Wives and Witches Of East End, according to the Deadline report, but »

Jimmy Kimmel is requesting that Morrissey visit his show and work out their “issues” after the animal rights activist backed out of an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Feb. 26. Morrissey refused to appear when he found out that the cast of Duck Dynasty was also scheduled.
“I’ve found myself in a weird position. I’m in the middle of a celebrity feud with Morrissey… This has nothing to do with people who eat meat versus people who don’t,” Jimmy said on Feb. 27. “I’m completely respectful of people who do not eat meat, but the statement he made is ridiculous.”

The former Smiths frontman — an avid animal rights activist — refused to appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last-minute on Feb. 26 when he learned the duck-hunting enthusiast stars of the reality TV show ‘Duck Dynasty’ were guests.
It’s not uncommon for musical guests to be the target of late night talk show fodder — especially when said guests cancel their appearance last-minute — but when former Smiths frontman Morissey refused to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Feb. 26, the gloves came off and Jimmy Kimmel was outspokenly angry and annoyed.
The English singer had cancelled his appearance late the night before he was supposed to perform after he learned the cast of the A&E reality TV show Duck Dynasty, who had made their fortune selling duck hunting equipment in Louisiana, were also going to be guests on the talk show on the same night.
Morrissey is a vegan and avid animal rights activist, »

I Melt With You writer Glenn Porter is in charge for the script which will center on the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company, who, after a head injury alters her outlook »
AMC's 1980s-set pilot "Halt & Catch Fire" has tapped Lee Pace as its lead.
The "Pushing Daisies" star will play a computer visionary in the pilot, which is about the PC revolution of the 1980s. His character is a former top salesman at Ibm who joins a Dallas tech firm. Mackenzie Davis ("Smashed") will also star as a gifted young programmer.

The return of Dana Scully?
Not quite — but ex-x-Files star Gillian Anderson is making a move to return to network TV, via an untitled Rand Ravich/Far Shariat thriller for NBC. EW has confirmed that Anderson is set to star in the pilot, which centers on a massive kidnapping. The Emmy winner plays a CEO whose daughter is among the victims.

Alicia Silverstone will be returning to TV as the lead in Lifetime's "Hr," Deadline reports.
The actress, who most recently visited her "Clueless" co-star Jeremy Sisto for a stint on "Suburgatory," will play "the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company who, after a head injury alters her outlook on life, throws standard corporate practices out the window and inspires the business to strive for new ambitions and profits."
Deadline reports that although the pilot was initially ordered last year, the pickup was contingent upon casting a recognizable lead, so the network spent time making sure that they'd found the right actress for the job.
