Review: Andre Benjamin's Hendrix Biopic 'All Is By My Side' (In Theaters This Friday)

23 September 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

"Jimi: All Is by my Side" will open in select theaters this Friday, September 26th. A little over a decade ago, VH1 premiered one of its many mediocre television biopics, "Hendrix." Playing well against type, Wood Harris starred as the iconic guitarist, alongside Vivica A. Fox (as girlfriend/groupie Faye Pridgeon), and Billy Zane. A general overview of Hendrix’s life, the film chronicled his time playing with black artists like Little Richard, his period as a recording artist in London, his breakthrough performance at the legendary Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and his untimely death at the age of 27. It had all the hallmarks of most rock ‘n roll biopics: the »

Craig Ferguson On Ditching Conventions and Having Fun on ‘Celebrity Name Game’

22 September 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though his tenure on “The Late Late Show” may be drawing to a close, Craig Ferguson won’t be idle: He’s looking forward to his new gig as host of the new syndie game show “Celebrity Name Game.”

Known for his atypical, non-formulaic approach to his after-midnight talker, Ferguson told journalists in a telephone press conference that he’s taking a similar approach to “Name Game,” and isn’t sticking to any established format or canned atmosphere.

“I felt that when we were most successful in the late-night show, it was lovingly trashing the conventions of it,” he said, A big draw of “Name Game,” he said, was its simplicity and openness to allow “enough breathing room and enough room for me to kind of experiment and grow inside of it.”

Ferguson has been on-board the show since 2011, where it was originally designed as an hour-long for CBS from »

Celebrity Name Game With Craig Ferguson Preview And Interview

18 September 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If you aren’t completely up on everything come your way with the new season, one of the things that might have slipped past you is Celebrity Name Game, and it’s one that you want to make sure you don’t miss. Craig Ferguson moves on from his late night show to a game show, which isn’t exactly the switch you might have expected from him, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

It isn’t like any other game show you’ve seen before, and that’s exactly the way Craig wants it. In fact, to listen to him tell it, he’d be happiest if it progressively gets less and less like a game show as it goes.

Check out the preview above, and then take in the interview below.

You’ll have to check your local listings, but it starts on Monday, »

'A Different World' cast reunites for 'Oprah: Where Are They Now?'

15 September 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In 1987, A Different World debuted as simply a Cosby Show spinoff. But by 1991, the show starring Jasmine Guy and Kadeem Hardison had surpassed Cosby in the ratings and earned an EW cover story touting it as “an ensemble comedy about black college life that’s brightly acted, politically and socially attuned, idiosyncratic, and yes, even funny.”

The cast members are reuniting for the Oct. 26 episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, which returns with new installments on Oct. 5. Watch a sneak peek below, in which they talk about inspiring a generation to attend college and fondly recall how creator Bill Cosby ends conversations. »

Tara Reid makes jaws drop at the Sharknado 2 premiere

22 August 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Forget yesterday's pre-Emmy Award party, Tara Reid attended last night's (August 21) true primetime event - the Sharknado 2: The Second One movie premiere.

The 38-year-old actress, who reprises her role as April Wexler for the Sharknado sequel, arrived in a plunging neon pink crop top and matching high-waisted skirt for the Asylum & Fathom Events screening at the Regal cinema.

She was joined by co-star and estranged on-screen husband Ian Ziering, as well as producers David Garber, David Latt and David Rimawi.

Sharknado 2 made its SyFy debut on July 30, and proved a smash hit in the ratings with approximately 3.90m viewers and a 1.3 Nielsen ratings score.

The tongue-in-cheek disaster movie, which sees the Sharknado hit New York City, features the likes of Vivica A. Fox, Kari Wuhrer, Kelly Osbourne and Judah Friedlander.

Reid recently admitted that she was embarrassed by the first Sharknado film and refused to promote it before »

Sigourney Weaver opts out of the Expendables spinoff ‘Expendabelles’

21 August 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most iconic action characters of the past 35 years is Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley, who has fought various xenomorphs through the course of the Alien quadrilogy. With The Expendables 3 opening in theatres this past weekend, talk had heated up in recent months of an all-female spinoff of the franchise, centred on a similar conceit of reuniting action heroines of yesteryear and present day. With the writers and director set, speculation had turned to the starring roles, with Weaver’s name put forward by many, including producer Sylvester Stallone. However, the Hollywood Reporter has now announced that Weaver has formally passed on the project, leaving the movie without a single confirmed castmember for now.

While this is a setback for the movie, particularly as Stallone himself had expressed interest in Weaver’s involvement, the project is unlikely to die as a result. Weaver’s exit, however, may »

Watch Lynn Whitfield & Vivica Fox in Trailer for Nigerian-Produced '30 Days in Atlanta' (The Plight of the Black Actress)

19 August 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

What a way to start the day... with this, the trailer for an upcoming new feature film titled "30 Days in Atlanta" - a Nigerian-produced project featuring a mix of Nigerian and Black American actors. Specifically, Vivica Fox and Lynn Whitfield, who co-star alongside Ay, Ramsey NouahKarlie Redd, Richard Mofe Damijo, Desmond Elliot, Rachael Oniga, Mercy Johnson, Adah Ameh, Kesse Jabari, Majid Michel, and Juliet Ibrahim. That Vivica Fox is in this isn't a surprise to me, given her resume - especially in recent years. It's not a knock on Fox; it just is. She's earning a living and that's ultimately what most want out of life and career. But Lynn Whitfield is a surprise; »

Stars: Zoe Bell, Vivica A. Fox, Kristanna Loken, Brigitte Nielsen, Cynthia Rothrock, Nicole Bilderback, Gerald Webb, Tim Abell, Tiffany Panhilason | Written by Edward DeRuiter | Directed by Christopher Olen Ray

You remember the 80s and the action films of The Cannon Group? Remember how Stallone tried to bring that era back with The Expendables? Remember all the chatter about the being an “Expenda-belles” movie? And how, even now some 3 films into the franchise, we are nowhere near to seeing the female-centric version come to fruition? Well forget that film. And forget The Expendables. Check out the Mercenaries

The plot is, like it’s big-screen brethren, pretty simple.When the President’s daughter is kidnapped by a man-hating “Amazonian She-Bitch” (to quote the movie) whilst on a tour of a foreign war zone, a team of female mercenaries – all prisoners of the United States government for various severe crimes – is assembled by »
