Now that's what we call taking a hearty bite out of an auction. New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez jetted off to the Dominican Republic to help out his pal, Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, who played host for the sixth annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic, which unspooled from Thursday to Saturday. As part of the event, Rodriguez, 38, who had a rough year after being suspended from baseball in August over allegations he used performance-enhancing drugs, donated a charity lunch date that was auctioned off to fans willing to pony up big bucks for a plum meal with the baseball superstar. »
Bradley Cooper opens up about his past drug addictions and low points in a candid interview with GQ.
Cooper, who was just nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in American Hustle, gave the intimate interview while on location in Hawaii shooting an untitled Cameron Crowe film. He recounts his career, from a one-episode stint in Sex and the City to his first regular television job playing Will Tippin in Alias, which he held from 2001 to 2002.
Cooper on 'Alias': "I Was Like, 'I Want To Kill Myself'"
Cooper hit a rough patch early in his career when his role in Alias became smaller and smaller, leaving him feeling bored and depressed.
“I would only work three days a week. And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to kill myself, »

Axel Foley & Detective Rosewood – Beverly Hills Cop
While Eddy Murphy and Judge Reinhold have made names for themselves in today’s pop culture, it’s easy to argue that Beverly Hills Cop launched their now successful film careers. With Axel as the mouth behind the duo, and Rosewood as the partner getting him out of trouble each time, there match up is as timeless as the film. »

Comedian Chris Tucker played the flamboyant talk show host Ruby Rhod in Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. At times it feels like a Prince impersonation — but maybe that’s because the music artist was offered a chance to play the outrageous character. French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, known for crafting some of fashion’s most shocking works, created the costumes for the sci-fi film. It seems that Gaultier’s getup for Ruby was even too much for Prince. Exhibit The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk is currently at the Brooklyn Museum, which is where website io9 learned what the androgynous singer thought of the fishnet-and-feathers ensemble: “Still not saying anything, Prince gave me this...

Every year, a plethora of movie sequels hit the big screen, and always seem to perform well, no matter how terrible they may be. Cinephiles often lament the deluge of sequels, especially for the many films out there who get them that don't really need them (like Grown Ups 2 or Smurfs 2) . A few weeks ago, I discussed the films that we'd love a sequel too, but should leave alone, and now (in the spirti of thinking positive), I've come up with a list of movies that we actually want to see, and are deserving of a sequel.
The Dark Crystal (1982)
Seriously, where the hell is The Power of the Dark Crystal? The sequel to this 1982 classic has been in the works for over a decade now, and it's still no where to be seen. It’s gone through a couple directors, a couple writers as well, and the last »

Jackie Chan’s spectacular new adventure takes him all the way from the chateau and vineyards of France and the hidden dangers of a jungle on a South Seas island to the terrors of a fight in free-fall above an active volcano. The story is sprung on a quest to track down six bronze sculptures, originally part of a set of twelve representing the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. Jackie plays a soldier of fortune, not a high minded patriot. He’s in it for the money. But as events take unexpected turns and strange alliances take shape, motives begin to change.
Why did you want to go back to directing?
Jackie Chan: When I direct my own film I write my own script I like to hear from the audience that they liked it. I never stopped directing all the movies that I’ve made I was a half director. »

Breaking Bad is over and what a finale it was, although it may have been predictable based on what we knew from the flash forward at the start of the season, it still didn’t disappoint and was full of stirring and thrilling moments. More importantly, now that this is over, Netflix crucially need to up their game.
Hansel and Gretel and Texas Chainsaw, two pretty dire entries from earlier this year, just are not going to cut it against Argo and The Perks of Being a Wallflower regardless of who did what at the box office. Netflix seem to have the monopoly on quality catalogue titles this week with some little seen gems with Permanent Midnight and Orange County but this means nothing to the public and mostly registers with nerds like me.
This isn’t a suggestion that the company is in trouble at all but consider what »

On a brisk night in late October of last year, I was invited to go to a bar in downtown Los Angeles. To those who know me, this may not come as a shocking revelation. However, not a single drop of alcohol was consumed that night, because I did not go to the Broadway Bar to drink, but instead to visit the set of Screen Gems' comedy remake About Last Night. The entire, spacious bar was shut down for the production, which was shooting a Halloween party scene. In fact, not only were the actors dressed up in elaborate costumes, but many of the crew members were as well, since this particular shooting date was less than a week from the actual holiday, and it was actually their second to last day of production.
Back in 1997, Luc Besson wrote and directed one of the best science-fiction movies of our time in The Fifth Element, and now, according to sources, the French director is possibly looking to revisit that universe…
Speaking to The Playlist while out promoting his latest The Family, Besson was asked whether he would like to go back and revisit one of his past movie efforts for a prequel or sequel. He responded with the following
“The Fifth Element I was a little bit frustrated because I made the film right before all the new effects arrived. So when I did the film it was all blue screen, six hours, dots on the wall, takes forever to do one shot. Now, basically, you put the camera on your shoulder and then you run and then you add a couple of dinosaurs and spaceships. And I was so frustrated because it was not so easy at the time. »

‘Insidious: Chapter 2′ box office: Horror movie has second best September debut ever — not taking inflation into account (photo: Barbara Hershey in ‘Insidious: Chapter 2′) As further evidence that moviegoers are sick and tired of sequels, James Wan’s Insidious: Chapter 2, starring Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson, and veteran Barbara Hershey, took in $40.27 million this past weekend, September 13-15, at the North America box office according to weekend actuals found at Box Office Mojo. That’s more than three times the $13.27 million Wan’s Insidious collected in April 2011. How could that be? Well, James Wan’s Warner Bros.-distributed The Conjuring, starring Vera Farmiga and Insidious‘ Patrick Wilson, became a sleeper horror hit in mid-July, collecting an astounding — for a relatively low-budget horror movie — $41.85 million on its first weekend, ultimately cuming at $136 million in North America in addition to an excellent — once again, for a relatively low-budget horror movie — $135.2 million internationally. »

Resurfacing on the small screen Monday night for what he called a “party with friends,” Hall, brought ’90s flair to his late-night broadcast. From his opening sequence with Jay Leno as his shrink to guest Chris Tucker, a performance from Snoop Dogg (now Snoop Lion), and Tara Reid spotted in the audience, the 2012 winner of Celebrity Apprentice evoked late-night nostalgia.
Hall stuck to the formula he left behind in 1994: funny jokes, iconic hip-hop performances, »

Arsenio Hall’s return to the latenight circuit after nearly 20 years produced some promising ratings results on Monday night.
CBS Television Distribution talker “The Arsenio Hall Show” averaged a 1.9 rating/4 share in Nielsen’s 53 metered markets, building from its lead-in on the stations that carried it by 27% (1.5/3). It’s nearly double the 1.0/2 that these stations averaged in the timeslot in September of last year.
The show is anchored by the 17 stations in the Tribune Broadcasting station group, which is also a partner in the show.
In key demos, “Arsenio” scored a 1.0 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 1.2/5 in adults 25-54 in Nielsen’s markets with Local People Meters, beating every latenight program on the broadcast networks.

How fast time flies! After over a year of talking about it, the all-new The Arsenio Hall Show debuted nationwide last night, Monday, September 9 at 11pm, with main guest Chris Tucker, and Snoop Dogg providing the music. Surprise, albeit brief appearances by Paula Abdul and Jay Leno in an intro skit (which I thought was maybe the episode's funniest bit), spiced things up a bit, but, unfortunately, not enough to really excite. The headline of this post describes it as "the all-new" Arsenio Hall Show, but, while watching, I felt like I'd been transported back in time, about 20 years. The set looked eerily similar, the show opened with the same opening theme song from its 1990s incarnation, although updated with the new Posse, and even Arsenio doesn't look like he's aged very much. Gone is the high-top fade, in favor of a low-cut trim, but the man doesn't at all »

Of all places for "The Arsenio Hall Show" to kick off, on the set of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" probably wasn't at the top of most people's lists. That's what happened though, as Arsenio Hall used Jay Leno as his therapist. It was a funny moment from the outgoing "Tonight Show" host.
The more things change, the more they stay the same, it seems. The set of the show isn't all that different from the first time around. Arsenio still talks to guests from a big, comfortable-looking chair, while they sit on a couch. Of course, there's also the expected "Woof, Woof, Woof" chants you might remember from his dog pound.
Arsenio pulled out all the stops for his first show, which includes bringing out Snoop Dogg to perform his 1993 hit "What's My Name?" He even got Paula Abdul to make an appearance. She mostly talked about how awesome Arsenio is, »
Although Arsenio Hall devoted his opening-night monologue to what he’s been up to for the last 19 years, the announcer wasn’t really joking by introducing the host as “back from a very long weekend.” That’s because “The Arsenio Hall Show,” inevitably and perhaps shrewdly, looks like a carbon copy of the syndicated show Hall left in 1994. And if you think about it, why not? In today’s fragmented TV universe, a series with a fraction of the audience Hall delivered in his heyday will likely be heralded as a success. So enter the new “Arsenio,” a touch wiser, perhaps, but essentially, same as the old one.
Hall’s most inspired gag was also the most obvious — enlisting Jay Leno, playing his shrink, to tell him if he works hard and does a good job, why shouldn’t he be able to host a latenight show for as long as he likes? »
