Shabana Azmi to feature in British film on Indian royalty

14 November 2014 2:37 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Shabana Azmi, our first truly international star who has worked with the likes of Shirley MacLaine in Madame Sousatzka and Patrick Swayze in The City Of Joy is now all set to star in the most controversial international project of her career. Shabana stars in The Black Prince, the biopic on the life of Maharaja Duleep Singh who during the British Raj was wrenched away from his mother at age of 15 and forcibly brought to Britain where he was converted to Christianity and groomed like a Britisher. For many decades now, Sikh historians have regarded Duleep Singh's story to be emblematic of Colonial arrogance and intolerance. The film is now being directed by the Us-based Indian actor-director Kavi Raz in Northamptonshire in England. About her role Shabana says, "Maharani Jinda is the driving-force behind Duleep to return to Punjab and take back his land. He was taken away to England »

10 TV characters who knew how to make an entrance

2 November 2014 1:07 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Battlestar Galactica to Farscape, Doctor Who and more, Juliette cheers on 10 TV characters who made a big first impression...

Some characters slip onto our TV screens quietly and sneak into our hearts slowly. We watch them develop and grow, and come to love them over time, sometimes despite very inauspicious beginnings (being eaten by a wheelie bin springs to mind).

Others make more of an impression from the get-go.

In this list, we’re celebrating some of the most memorable and impressive entrances of characters from TV shows. To make the list, a character had to be (or eventually become) a regular or frequently recurring character – no one-shot wonders here. And note this is a list for TV characters, so you won’t see any Captain Jack Sparrow or even the Borg Queen – all of these had to make their big impression on the small screen.

Tommy Lee Jones Said Really Mean Things To Jim Carrey During Batman Forever

29 October 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sometimes a movie duo works fabulously together onscreen, but the two utterly loathe each other offscreen. Rumor has it this was the case for Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart on Sabrina, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey on Dirty Dancing, and even Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling on The Notebook. Well, add Batman Forever's dastardly duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey to this list. It turns out Jones loathed Carrey, and had no trouble letting it be known. While promoting his upcoming Dumb and Dumber To, Jim Carrey appeared on Howard Stern's show for a lengthy interview. About 55 minutes in, talk turns to Carrey's time playing the Riddler in Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, in which Tommy Lee Jones co-starred as Two-Face. Well, it turns out Jones was less than thrilled to be sharing scenes with the comedian, and wasn't shy about letting Carrey know. According to Carrey, »

Caroline Flack feels like she's in Dirty Dancing

25 October 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Caroline Flack feels like she is starring in 'Dirty Dancing'. The former 'Xtra Factor' presenter is incredibly excited to be taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' - on which she is partnered with professional dancer Pasha Kovalev - because she can't help but think of the classic movie, which starred Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze. She said: '''Strictly' is basically 'Dirty Dancing'. That's the only way I can explain it. ''And Pasha is Patrick Swayze - look at him. He's like, 'Step on the two' and I'm like, 'Eeek! It's 'Dirty Dancing'! Eeek!' '' Caroline admits she is ''in awe'' of her »

24 October 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

And The X Factor title goes to...

Nope, we've not got that far yet. Still another couple of months to go - but Saturday night is Movie Night on ITV's primetime reality TV juggernaut.

So dust off your gladrags, order in the popcorn and stop trying to work out which member of Stereo Kicks is which for a moment - because tomorrow night's song choices are in. There's power ballads aplenty, so expect more key changes than a Westlife album.

Which young hopeful will be hoping to meet the challenge of his rivals, who wants you to 'Listen' to them and which soloist has the unenviable task of singing a track originally performed by four artists? Find out below...

Keanu Reeves in 1985: If I Don't Make It, I'll Cry

23 October 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Before Keanu's new film John Wick hits theaters, let’s take a look at his first interview with Et.

Keanu Reeves has been acting for nearly three decades and Et has been with him every step of the way.

In celebration of John Wick, the 50-year-old actor's latest film out this Friday, we dug into the Et vault to find the first time we interviewed the actor—way back in 1985 on the set of the TV movie Young Again.

Video- Keanu Reeves Addresses Recent Home Break-In

"I can feel it, I'm having fun," a 21-year-old Keanu told Et. The young actor was wide-eyed and bushy-tailed working alongside TV's Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner, and had dreams of making it big himself one day. "I hope something gets out there that is magic -- and if not, I'll just be sad and cry," he joked.

It took a few more years, but Keanu would eventually make a name for »

Best of Late Night TV: Bill Murray's Tinder Talk, John Leguizamo's Fight With Patrick Swayze (Video)

22 October 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Seth Meyers are still on vacation with repeats, but don't worry: Bill Murray and Tenacious D were around to save Tuesday night.

Bill Murray was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" -- and you have to pay close attention to his amazing shirt with what looks like divers on it. His outfit is just everything. Jimmy shared all the great parenting advice Bill gave him before Jk and his wife welcomed their child. "I don't know much," Bill said, "but I talk a lot about what I do know." That's how it should be. He has six boys, so he should know. He shared a good »

From Michael Jackson to Patrick Swayze to … Alfonso Ribeiro? Eight-year-old Charlie has already impressively tackled some of the most iconic dance numbers of all time, but he has always been a solo act - until now. That all changed Thursday when Charlie met Dancing with the Stars contestant Ribeiro and his pro-dancer partner Witney Carson backstage at a taping of The Queen Latifah Show. "Charlie was so excited to meet them," an onlooker tells People. "His mom had shown him The Carlton dance before so he was beside himself when he saw [Alfonso] in real life."

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 years: #10-1

17 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

15 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

There are some things you can just watch over and over again, like every sexy dance sequence in Dirty Dancing... or this adorable eight-year-old's re-creation of the film's memorable finale.

8-Year-Old Boy Channels Patrick Swayze to Perform Nearly Perfect Dirty Dancing Finale

14 October 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nobody puts baby in the corner! Charlie, 8, proved this point by recreating a spot-on performance of Dirty Dancing's final number (lift not included), the Today show reports. Mimicking the moves of Patrick Swayze's Johnny Castle, Charlie easily delivers every one of the character's signature hip swivels and box steps as he watches along with the movie. The only thing missing from Charlie's amazing Johnny impersonation is a dance partner, which the boy should have no trouble finding now. Charlie's mesmerizing routine went viral after his family posted the video to Facebook. This isn't Charlie's first time taking center stage. »
