Jake Squared Is Part Rom-Com, Part Apology for Self-Absorption

12 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

More enervating than it is ambitious, Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption.

Creatively blocked indie-filmmaker Jake Klein (Elias Koteas) examines his failings as a lover by making a film within the film, starring a younger, hornier version of himself (Mike Vogel). While Vogel's Jake flirts with every woman he meets, Koteas's Jake directly addresses Jake Squared's viewers through a series of fourth wall — demolishing speeches and aphorisms, including pompous quotations from Federico Fellini, DailyOm.com, and Sonny and Cher.

The film's meta-narrative spins out of control after three more versions of Jake, two played by Koteas, inexplicably appear, and f »

Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and More Celebs Who Have Been Friends Since They Were Kids

3 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're a Hollywood star, your childhood friends usually have a limited number of roles available to play. They can be a loyal sidekick, your crew's comical mascot, or maybe the personal assistant who will eventually take you down in a bloodless celebrity coup. But for a lucky few stars, the people they grew up with became celebrities themselves, with their own fans, their own love interests and their own trending topics. It must be a welcome surprise. After all, it's lonely at the top, but it's a little less lonely when your childhood friends are there, too. In honor »

7 Crazy ‘Planet of the Apes’ Moments You Won’t Believe

9 July 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When a film franchise lasts for more than four decades, it’s bound to collect a few odd moments along the way, and the “Planet of the Apes” series is no exception. As the eighth film in the popular saga arrives in theaters July 11, here’s a look at some of the strangest riffs on simian cinema.

The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson

Animal acts were a staple of Johnny Carson’s 32 years on The Tonight Show, and none were more memorable than when singer Paul Williams took the stage in full orangutan makeup and crooned a bluesy ballad to promote his role as Virgil in “Battle for the Planet of the Apes.” The lit cigarette in his hairy hand helped add to the surrealism.

5 Celeb Couples Who Married in Vegas

29 June 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

What happens in Vegas ... often results in a divorce not too much later, at least in the case of these nine celebrity couples rounded up by Radar : Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra: They wed in Sin City in 1966 when Farrow was 21 and Sinatra was 50. They divorced two years later. Cher and Gregg Allman: She filed for divorce just nine days after they married in 1975, but they ended up staying together another two years. Eddie Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor: He became her fourth husband in 1959, but they divorced five years later. Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford: »

Forget Donny & Marie. Maya Rudolph, NBC Bid To Revive TV’s Variety Show

17 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Maya Rudolph has proven time and again that she can sing and make people laugh out loud. Now the question is whether she can breathe new life into a TV staple once thought part of the cultural flotsam of the 1970s.

She will appear on NBC Monday in “The Maya Rudolph Show,” a 10 p.m. special the Peacock bills as a means of “revisiting the classic variety show format.” No less than “Saturday Night Live” impresario Lorne Michaels is the executive producer. Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, and Fred Armisen are among the guests. Janelle Monae will sing. There’s even a bandleader – retro-soul artist Raphael Saadiq.

“What we found and what I feel emboldened us is there was no shortfall of people that wanted to put their hand up to what I’d describe as ‘play with Maya,’” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and latenight programming at NBC Entertainment. »

Maya Rudolph on her variety special, slow 'SNL' goodbye, and Barack Obama impression you never saw

15 May 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Song. Dance. Sketch. These are three things that Maya Rudolph is planning to bring back to prime time — along with a good time. The Maya Rudolph Show, a variety special that airs May 19 at 10 p.m. on NBC, will take the Saturday Night Live vet to familiar places with familiar faces: SNL alums Fred Armisen, Andy Samberg, and Chris Parnell, along with Sean Hayes, Kristen Bell, and Craig Robinson, are among the featured guests. (SNL overlord Lorne Michaels is serving as executive producer.) It’s a chance to reunite with some old pals but also bring back a piece of a different past. »

10 Completely Insane Musician Team-Ups (That Actually Happened)

10 May 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The hallowed halls of music history are festooned with classic duets, from Johnny Cash and June Carter to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan to, um, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Okay, so not all harmonious pairings are created equal – or even necessarily with good harmonies – but some are even less equal. In fact, some of that make absolutely no logical sense.

Take, for example, this week’s news that Cher has swapped out Sonny Bono in favour of the Ghostface Killah, Method Man, RZA, Gza, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble, and Grub. Yes, the singer/actress/Twitter expert is set to appear on not one but two songs on the band’s weird new one-off record Once Upon A Time In Shaolin (credited under the name Bonnie Jo Mason, no less). Cher Rules Everything Around Me, Anyone?

Believe it or not, that’s not the most insane musical team up we »

Which Is Your Favourite Bob Hoskins Role?

1 May 2014 4:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar Pictures

Bob Hoskins was one of those wonderfully consistent actors that it was easy to take for granted; often chosen as much for his unique physicality as he was for his acting abilities (alas, critic Pauline Kael once described him as “a testicle with legs”), he was the kind of filmic presence that demanded you sat up and took notice whenever he appeared on screen. Hearing of his untimely death yesterday (he died aged 71 of pneumonia), it’s been made apparent that we’ve lost a true legend of British cinema. There really will be no replacing the likes of Bob Hoskins.

Many will know Hoskins for his turn in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, where the actor found himself as part of an insanely ambitious project that blended the styles of cartoon and live-action to great success. As Eddie Valiant, a down on his luck detective, Hoskins renders a »

Bob Hoskins, the legendary British actor whose career spanned more than 40 years, has died at the age of 71. Hoskins passed away today (April 30) after contracting pneumonia. He announced his retirement from acting in 2012 following a Parkinson's diagnosis.

Bob Hoskins dies, aged 71: Tributes pour in for Long Good Friday star

Hoskins leaves behind an eclectic selection of film roles, having worked with filmmakers ranging from Steven Spielberg to Stephen Frears. Here are eight of his more memorable big screen roles...

The Long Good Friday (1980)

Probably the greatest British gangster film ever made, Hoskins delivered an explosive turn as Harold Shand, a criminal looking to refashion himself as a legit businessman. John McKenzie's film has stood the test of time exceptionally well, having contemporary resonance in Shand's plans to rejuvenate the London Docklands to make way for the Olympic Games.

"Cher" Performs Tribute to Scandal's James Novak on Hello Ross—Watch the Clip!

18 April 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

On tonight's episode of Hello Ross, a very special guest rises from the dead to make an appearance. *Spoiler Alert: If you haven't watched the past few episodes of Scandal, do not read any further! For those of you who have kept up with your Scandal schedule, sadly you are aware that the beloved character of James Novak (played by Dan Bucatinsky) was killed off and didn't receive a proper send-off. But Ross Mathews wants to change all that, so he brought in the Gay Man's Chorus of Los Angeles, led by a Cher impersonator (played by Chad Michaels, the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars) to give Dan's character the big, gay funeral that he deserves!

Drag Race: The Sounds of My Fury

16 April 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here, in picture form, is why I've been unable to function whenever I tried to write about RuPaul's Drag Race

somehow the blurry screenshot seemed appropriate so i didn't try again

Laganja Estranja's bottomless need for attention coupled with her lack of deserving any but mostly her limitless capacity for meaningless affectation completely broke me. As did the epic 3 hours of episode last week -- 3 hours in one single night. Turns out that's enough glitter, saturated color, and aural assault to even give Baz Luhrmann pause. But mostly it was Laganja. If I could describe in writing the clucking, mouth popping, meaningless "words" issuing from her frosted lips I would but judge Michelle Visage summed it up brilliantly in a weirdly accurate gibberish approximation of Laganja's unprocessed non-integrated robotic regurgitation of every drag vocal affectation that the show has ever produced. <-- Good lord that last sentence was a mouthful. »

Actor That Was The Glue Of Lord Of The Rings Has Died

11 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

"Shadowfax! Show us the meaning of haste!" When you think of celebrities best known by a stage name consisting of a single word, you think of Cher, Oprah or Madonna, but there is one more that should roll off the tip of your tongue, Blanco! He was the heart, soul and glue of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, but he tragically passed away a few days ago. His caretaker, Cynthia Royal, explained to theonering.net that Blanco had endured "serious issues with his intestinal tract and liver." Like a loyal friend, Royal stayed with Blanco til the bitter end. "Although my heart was breaking," she explains, "as my final gift to him, I stayed strong, balanced and focused, gently repeating “Relax Blanco. Let go. Walk into the light. Relax and let go” as the Blanco I’ve known so well and loved so deeply slipped away." Blanco »

OKCupid discourages Firefox, Bishop Robinson explains why Christians are not victims, baby elephant plays water polo

Lucas Entertainment was one of the last holdouts making only condom porn. Now they’ve gone condomless, and Michael Lucas provides an explanation why that’s worth reading. And he also thinks that activists have cause and effect backwards when it comes to bareback porn. “I don’t think that bareback porn has driven gay men to bareback sex; I think that the rise in bareback sex has driven the industry to bareback porn.”

If you go to the homepage of OKCupid using Firefox, you’ll get an interstitial telling you that they’d prefer you used another browser to access their product because the Mozilla CEO supported Prop 8. They then politely link you to alternative browser downloads before giving you a link to continue, if you must.
