Rudolph, David Javerbaum, Erin David and Dave Becky will produce, with Lorne Michaels serving as executive producer. When the NBC comedy series Up All Night — in which Rudolph co-starred with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett, did not go forward with the planned multi-camera revamp in February — Rudolph informed studios and networks that she wanted to do a variety show. NBC was among several suitors that began pursuing the project, leading to the pilot order. This marks the latest collaboration between Rudolph and Michaels, who also produced Up All Night. Rudolph, daughter of the late soul singer Minnie Riperton, was one of SNL »

Billy Porter talks 'Kinky Boots' anniversary and new album

14 April 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — The first thing Billy Porter does when a visitor enters his dressing room is look down. "Oh, I like those shoes. Where did those shoes come from?" the Tony Award winner asks nicely. When told that the footwear in question is really just cheap and unremarkable, Porter jumps in. "Listen, inexpensive does not mean not nice." Porter has good reason to be so generous with compliments these days. He's celebrating his anniversary in the hit musical "Kinky Boots" and is about to release a new CD of Broadway standards. The 10 lushly orchestrated songs on "Billy's Back on Broadway" are a soundtrack of empowerment, encouragement, hope and enlightenment. Once those themes came to Porter, "it kind of wrote itself," he says. There's "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from "Gypsy," ''Don't Rain on My Parade" from "Funny Girl" and "Luck Be a Lady" from "Guys and Dolls." The style, title »

Meme: Derrick Gordon’s Coming Out Gets Mixed Reactions, Jenny McCarthy Says She’s Not Anti-Vaccine, Barbra Streisand Responds To Larry Kramer

Ted Olson calls Virginia marriage ban flatly unconstitutional, Tim Cook calls on Congress to pass Enda, John Barrowman talks about his fans

We told you about Derrick Gordon becoming the first Ncaa Div I player to come out while playing, but while he received nothing but praise in the press, his family has had mixed reactions. His parents were shocked, but came around nicely, as did his big brother, who “Kind of knew.” But his twin brother Darryl isn’t responding well according to his mother. “(Darryl) is taking it real hard. You know, he’ll say he can’t support gays. And I’ll just say, ‘Support your brother.’ It’s not like he just woke up and said, ‘I’m gay.’ I told him, ‘that could have been you.’ ”

Jenny McCarthy says that she’s not anti-vaccine, she just wants options. “I believe in the importance of a »

Lea Michele Rocks a Sleek Bob on the Set of Glee—See the Photo!

9 April 2014 7:55 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The bob is back! Lea Michele had a different, albeit temporary, look on the set of Glee Wednesday, her long tresses tucked inside a bob-cut wig—but this of course isn't the first time the 27-year-old actress has donned this short, sleek hairstyle. On the hit musical series her character Rachel has landed the role of Fanny Brice—the iconic early-20th-century star that Barbra Streisand played on Broadway and in the 1968 film adaptation of Funny Girl—and wears the short, Barbra-reminiscent 'do. Hair today, gone tomorrow...usually. But Michele may want to get used to this wig because Glee creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy has acquired the stage rights »

Barbra Streisand on 'The Normal Heart': 'I Tried Very Hard to Get It Made.'

8 April 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Barbra Streisand was the first filmmaker to see the potential in a screen adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart, his 1985 play about the early days of the AIDS epidemic. But although she held an option on the project for 10 years and continued to try to assemble a film version even after her option lapsed, her efforts proved unsuccessful. In 2012, even as Ryan Murphy's adaptation, which will premiere on HBO on May 25, was coming together, Kramer blasted Streisand in an email that went public, telling her she did not have "quite the same burning passion to

Barbara Walters: Probing Questions and a Tall Tale of the Tree

8 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Any discussion of Barbara Walters’ trademark primetime interview specials inevitably winds back to the famous question: “If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?”

Except that she never delivered that query in quite in that way, even though it has become apocryphal punchline.

See Also: Barbara Walters: Her View on 50 Years in the News Biz

The tree moment cropped up during Walters’ 1981 interview of Katharine Hepburn, who described herself as feeling like a very strong “tree” in her old age. Walters pressed her on “what kind of tree are you?” To which Hepburn said she preferred to be an oak rather than an elm, in order to avoid Dutch elm disease.

Among other probing questions over the years from Walters’ primetime specials:

“Is it all you?” — to Dolly Parton in 1977, regarding her physique “Do you think that helped him lose the election?” — to Chevy Chase »

Barbara Walters On Her Retirement and Big Changes at ‘The View’

8 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Barbara Walters is known for turning her interviews into sob sessions, but as she exits the business she’s known all her life, she’s determined not to do that. When the legendary broadcaster retires next month at age 84 from ABC’s “The View,” following a groundbreaking career that’s featured more than 50 years in front of the television cameras, she’s adamant she won’t shed any tears.

“I’m not going to cry,” Walters says, from her corner office at ABC News in midtown Manhattan. She recalls watching Jay Leno’s misty final appearance on “The Tonight Show” in February. “I think Jay felt that he was pushed out,” Walters says. “I don’t feel like I’m being pushed out. This was my decision.” Walters says she settled on a timeline for her departure three years ago, as rumors about her retirement began to swirl.

It’s been a long goodbye. »

12 Celebs Who Are Terrible Tippers

29 March 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Most celebrities are fairly rich, but that apparently being wealthy doesn't guarantee you're also generous. Radar rounds up 40 celebrity cheapskates, who've done everything from skip out on bills to renege on charity donations. Here are the 12 bad tippers from the list: Tiger Woods: He's said to be so cheap and such a bad tipper that he actually made his former mistresses pay the tips when they went out. Mark Zuckerberg: He reportedly failed to tip on a $40 bill during his honeymoon in Italy. Barbra Streisand: "She doesn't always tip," according to one anonymous source, and she reportedly »

Library of Congress' Packard Campus: Rare Double Screening of Box Office Cataclysm

26 March 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Screwball comedy movies, rare screenings of epic box office disaster: Library of Congress’ Packard Theater in April 2014 (photo: Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in ‘The Awful Truth’) In April 2014, the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus Theater in Culpeper, Virginia, will celebrate Hollywood screwball comedy movies, from the Marx Brothers’ antics to Peter Bogdanovich’s early ’70s homage What’s Up, Doc?, a box office blockbuster starring Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal. Additionally, the Packard Theater will present a couple of rarities, including an epoch-making box office disaster that led to the demise of a major studio. Among Packard’s April 2014 screwball comedies are the following: Leo McCarey’s Duck Soup (Saturday, April 5) — actually more zany, wacky, and totally insane than merely "screwball" — in which Groucho Marx stars as the recently (un)elected dictator of Freedonia, abetted by siblings Harpo Marx and Chico Marx, in addition to Groucho’s perennial foil, »

Season finale review: 'Girls' - 'Two Plane Rides'

23 March 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the "Girls" season 3 finale coming up just as soon as I can feel the labia forming... "Well, I'm sick of trying to work it out. Can't one thing ever be easy with you?" -Adam There are times when each season of "Girls" can feel haphazard and patchwork, with characters appearing and disappearing at random and story arcs being interrupted for short story-ish digressions that take Hannah out of town and/or give most of the cast the week off. That's not necessarily a bad thing, both because those digressions (like "Flo" this season) often represent the series at its best, and because it does a nice job of conveying how directionless and random Hannah Horvath's life can become. And I'm always impressed with the way the show tends to conclude its seasons in a way that bring everything full circle for Hannah (and, at times, for »

Nepotism Watch: Do Reality Spawn Gigi Hadid And Kendall Jenner Deserve Their Fashion Fame?

Kendall Jenner‘s modeling career is on the rise, and after walking the runway at New York, Paris and London fashion weeks, she wants to make it clear her famous family isn’t pulling any strings behind the scenes. “She went and auditioned, and she just goes by the name of Kendall, hoping that people won’t think that she gets any [handouts],” sister Kim Kardashian recently told the Huffington Post. Wait a minute! Could the Kardashian/Jenner name be considered a bad thing?

Hollywood has a history of nepotism. From the Barrymores to the Smiths, we’ve all questioned whether or not young stars have risen to success on their own merit or due to the name of their much more successful parents. If you’ve been following updates from fashion month around the globe, you’ve likely come across the names Kendall and Gigi Hadid, both »

Lea Michele: Releasing an Emotional Album Is "F*cking Scary"

4 March 2014 1:21 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It feels like you're in an episode of Glee when Lea Michele walks into a room full of musical instruments, flashes her megawatt smile, and takes a seat to chat about the power of music. She looks, talks, and sounds like Rachel Berry. Then, she touches on the loss of Cory Monteith and anxiety about releasing her first solo project, and it's clear this is not a scene from a high school musical. This is Lea's real life. "It's out for everyone to hear now, which is so f*cking scary," Lea said of her biographical album, Louder, out Monday. "But I'm going for it."

A day after winning at the Spirit Awards, where she dedicated that trophy to her mother, Nyong’o dedicated her Oscar to children around the world, saying, “No matter where you are from, your dreams are all valid.”

Oscars by the Numbers: 33 Fascinating Academy Awards Statistics

28 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Unless you're prediction-loving, number-crunching wizard Nate Silver, you probably find statistics pretty boring. But stats concerning the Academy Awards have always been fascinating, mostly because the Oscars are just plain weird, and riddled with anomalies.

The ceremony got its start in the late 1920s, when movies were just making their transition into sound, and early nominees and categories reflected the sheer chaos of those halcyon days of what would eventually become Hollywood's golden age. (Though, of course, any film aficionado worth his/her salt would have a strong opinion about the exact dates that that age entailed.)

As the Oscars tradition continued, the awards became a bit more traditional themselves, settling into a predictable pattern of narratives that have stayed relatively consistent to this day. But there are always idiosyncrasies hiding in the woodwork, and the Academy Awards have them in spades. Here, we've collected some of the most distinctive »
