William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is set for a new adaptation and it features a literal butthead. Head of an ass is supposed to be the head of a donkey, but this "fresh" new take will feature a literal interpretation on the age-old pun. Bottom will have an actual ass for a face and you can see it in the picture below, no pun intended. Shakespeare wrote the comedy in 1595/1596 and it portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Thseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. The events include the adventures of six amateur actors, aka the Mechanics and four Athenian lovers who are controlled and manipulated by fairies who live in the forest where most of the play is set.
The trailer for A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to us courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and in addition to the previously mentioned ass face, »

Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies have both acquired fervent fandoms, albeit at different times and in different mediums; she's the '90s sweetheart of She's All That, and he's Elijah Mikaelson, the original vampire who first stole hearts (in some cases, literally) on The Vampire Diaries, then The Originals. But did you know these two are married and, even more surprisingly, have stayed that way for over 12 years? That's a huge accomplishment in Hollywood, but if you look at the following pictures of the low-key couple from the beginning of their relationship to now, you'll see why: they're crazy in love. Follow along to see the evolution of Rachael and Daniel's relationship from their whirlwind courtship in 2003 to their enviable, long-lasting love now.

When you look back in the Pantheon of teenage movies from the 90s, She’s all That is Way up there. First of all, let’s get into the obscene amount of famous people cast in this movie. Freddie Prinze Jr, Rachael Leigh Cook, Matthew Lillard, Paul Walker, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Kevin Pollak, Anna Paquin, Kieran Culkin, Usher Raymond, Lil’ Kim, and Gabrielle Union. So we’ve got that out of the way. Now let’s get into the film itself. It’s absurd. Mainly because Rachel Leigh Cook is portrayed as this weird, unattractive character which from the get go makes you just as
A Hilarious Video Essay on the Movie “She’s All That” »

I’ve always been a tremendous fan of Rachel Leigh Cook. While she never necessarily made it as a leading lady in Hollywood, her brief time on top from the movie She’s All That was a special time for me. I had a crush on her then and I’m pretty sure the older me still has a little crush on the older Rachel Leigh Cook. It’s kind of in one of those, “I could never get her in high school but maybe I’ll have a shot with her at our 20 year reunion” kind of vibe. In any event you might
Rachel Leigh Cook Brings Back “Your Brain on Drugs” Role for New Drugs Commercial »

What's Rachael Leigh Cook doing these days? Same old—cracking eggs to promote an important message. But this time, she's serving up a slightly different one. The 37-year-old She's All That and Perception star, who rose to fame in the '90s, reprises her role in a new "This Is Your Brain on Drugs" PSA, released Thursday—on 4/20—and 20 years after her first one. This time, she speaks out not only against drug use, but against existing drug policy in the United States. "This is one of the millions of Americans who uses drugs and won't get arrested," Cook says, holding up a white egg and putting it on a »

Kate Middleton and Prince William announced their daughter's name as Charlotte Elizabeth Diana in May 2015, just days after the princess's birth. But she's not the only famous baby with the traditional moniker, since Chelsea Clinton, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Sarah Michelle Gellar all have girls who go by the same name. Other stars have kids who share names too: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are not the first parents to come up with "Saint," and many more stars - like Angelina Jolie and Gisele Bündchen or Sheryl Crow and Mila Kunis - have also picked a name that's previously been snagged by another celebrity parent. Keep reading to see which stars are on the same wavelength when it comes to baby names! »

Daniel Gillies is perfectly happy being a father of two!
The Originals star stopped by the Et studios on Friday for a live interview and opened up about what life is like with his "beautiful" wife, Rachael Leigh Cook, and their two children, Charlotte, 3, and Theodore, 2.
"There's a lot of snatching of toys going on," the 41-year-old actor revealed with a smile.
"But [Charlotte] is a very sweet, older sister to him and she's day-by-day becoming more and more demonstrative," he said. "She'll be really sweet to my son and be like, 'Look, Daddy! Look at how great I'm being,' so that she can receive the reward later on, which is that I have to play her episodes of Dora the Explorer."
"If you're not a parent, you'll get to know Dora, trust me," he added with a laugh.

There are no shortage of films churning out of Hollywood where gambling is a central theme. Rounders, Casino and many others remind us of the consequences when gambling, or an obsession with gambling, goes too far.
Sometimes Hollywood narrows their focus to go beyond the Blackjack tables and into the world of sports betting. Though films featuring sports betting in some way, shape or form don't roll off the tongue with the same ease as a more traditional gambling film, there is plenty of representation in this niche.
Here are some of what I consider the top sports betting-themed films worth checking out, especially with March Madness and endless office bracket pools just around the corner. All of them are at least a decade old and shouldn't be too hard to rent or watch on a streaming service.

The original X-Men movie had some potentially very different casting, as one of its writers reveals...
With Logan out in cinemas now, showcasing what will apparently be Hugh Jackman’s final outing in his 17-year cinematic run as Wolverine, some are understandably nostalgic about the legendary tenure. In a recent interview, screenwriter David Hayter – a key component of Fox's early X-Men movie franchise – discusses some casting prospects that the original production considered in director Bryan Singer’s genre-defining 2000 original film.

Speaking with THR, Hayter looks back on the days of the X-Men film's gestation.
Hayter, a name video game connoisseurs will recognise as the perennial voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear series, wrote the screenplay to 2000’s X-Men, based on a story collaboration with Singer and Tom DeSanto, later tackling sequel X2: X-Men United and Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. »
It’s no longer just a big, shiny effects budget and edgy subject matter that defines modern TV: increasingly it’s the place where 90s stars come to reassert their cult status. The most prominent example last year was the decade’s fave cult actor Winona Ryder’s redemptive turn in Stranger Things, but see also Now And Then’s Gaby Hoffmann, now appearing in Transparent; Liv Tyler, of Empire Records fame, in apocalypse cult drama The Leftovers; Ryan “Cruel Intentions” Phillippe in the (admittedly terrible) Netflix series Shooter; and now Addams Family star Christina Ricci, who plays Zelda Fitzgerald in Amazon’s Z: The Beginning Of Everything, airing later this month.
