It's one thing to get photobombed, it's another for it to happen on live television. Will Smith got the live TV photobomb treatment while he and his son Jaden were at an NBA game that saw the Miami Heat take on the Chicago Bulls. Will and Jaden were there as spectators and probably not, but definitely, to promote their new movie "After Earth."
As the camera found the pair of them, sideline reporter Craig Sager, and the loudest jacket on record, couldn't help but get involved, dropping a photobomb. As it should be with photobombs, Will and Jaden are none the wiser.

As photobombs go it's pretty good, even right up there with Bill Clinton's at the 2013 presidential inauguration. As for Sager's jacket, it turns out he's well-known for his questionable fashion sense. In fact, »

We are down to the top twelve singers in this boundary-breaking Armory Show, and my God, it has become a font of passive aggression. The judges seem actually annoyed at each other, and one wonders how, because don’t they have other lives in which they are famous divas? Why do they even care about this? Luckily, Bill Clinton/Carson Daly was dispensing all sorts of hugs. Perhaps the heat made tensions run high.Vedo, “Rock With You”Vedo really does have a beautiful tone, but he occasionally has severe pitch problems, which definitely surfaced in the middle of his “Rock With You.” To be fair, Michael Jackson is super hard to sing, but still. He is a good dancer, though! He was the only one that actually benefitted from Usher’s deeply serious choreographer, Isadora Duncan.

A biopic screenplay about Hillary Rodham Clinton has been floating around Hollywood for quite some time -- it won a spot on 2012's Black List, an honor reserved for the industry's best unproduced scripts -- and is set to begin production soon. But just what that screenplay depicts about the life of the former Secretary of State, senator, and First Lady had remained a mystery until now. The Daily Beast claims to have obtained a final draft copy of the script, and it's full of juicy details about the early courtship of Hillary and former President Bill Clinton. The majority of the story -- simply titled “Rodham” -- focuses on Hillary's stint serving as an attorney for the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry staff during President Richard Nixon's impeachment proceedings. During that time in 1974, 26-year-old Hillary was dating Bill, a law professor running for a House seat in Arkansas. »

If you haven't gotten enough Hillary Clinton from the Benghazi hearings, stay tuned for the new biopic, "Rodham." The feature film will focus on a younger Hillary, in 1974, when the 26-year-old worked as an attorney on the House impeachment inquiry staff. During Nixon's impeachment, the then-Rodham was dating Bill Clinton, then a law professor running for the House of Representatives in Arkansas. "Rodham" was written by South Korean Young Il Kim, whose screenplay was on the coveted 2012 Black List -- an annual compilation of the top unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. »

The early political life of Hillary Rodham Clinton gets the film treatment in "Rodham," a highly publicized script from South Korean writer Young Il Kim that James Ponsoldt ("The Spectacular Now") is attached to direct. Now, courtesy of Marlow Stern at The Daily Beast, interested parties can find out what Kim has in store for the former Secretary of State.
Stern got his hands on the "Rodham" script, which -- at least in blurb form -- seems to resemble any number of biopics-cum-origin stories. For instance, when Hillary is asked about her romance with Bill Clinton, then assistant professor of law at the University of Arkansas, Rodham tells a friend that the activity in the couple's sex life "depends upon what the meaning of the word 'sex' means." (Get it?)

New York — A celebration of Dave Brubeck's life and music turned into an ode to joy as family, friends and fans paid tribute to the groundbreaking pianist and composer who became the best known ambassador of jazz to the world.
Brubeck died Dec. 5, a day before his 92nd birthday, and a private funeral was held near his home in Wilton, Conn., shortly afterward. On Saturday afternoon, the only Brubeck family sponsored tribute took place before more than 2,000 people at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine featuring performances by Chick Corea, Branford Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Roberta Gambarini, Hilary Kole and other jazz stars.
Former President Bill Clinton, in a statement read by Brubeck's longtime manager Russell Gloyd, recalled being "utterly captivated" at age 15 after hearing Brubeck's quartet in concert and then going home to play "Take Five" until his lips gave out. "I consider myself lucky to have »

Former President Bill Clinton toed the party line at the recent D.C. gathering of tech and entertainment honchos, preaching a live-and-let-live philosophy as keynoter of the first Creativity Conference, an event co-sponsored by the MPAA.
“(The) future will reward more richly those who are more creative and more cooperative,” he said, his words jibing perfectly with the studio lobby’s latest strategy that Hollywood and Silicon Valley need to find common ground to fight online piracy.
But not everyone was in a conciliatory mood. Indie movie mogul Harvey Weinstein came out guns blazing, bashing Google as an “octopus,” and citing the availability of clips of his former company Miramax’s 2002 Oscar-winning hit “Chicago” on YouTube as a way to mock the tech company’s business plan.
“You take someone else’s content for free. Deliver it. Don’t pay them anything. And build a $500 billion Silicon Valley company and be very, »

Say some super villain like Lex Luthor or Donald Trump has taken you prisoner and forced you to play a doubles match to save your life. The one person you'd pick to go into battle with would have to be one of the Williams sisters -- Venus Williams or Serena Williams. True warriors of the court, they have dominated the game for a decade and a half and you'd bet your life on their competitive edge.
And you'd need one of them, because chances are, the other has agreed to partner up with the villain.
"Venus and Serena" is an intimate, mostly glowing portrait of these two closer-than-close tennis champions, siblings who have battled the best players the rest of the world has to offer, the tennis establishment and each other, courting controversy almost every step of the way.
In what may be the weirdest celebrity news of 2013, former NBA star Dennis Rodman has forged some kind of relationship with Kim Jong Un, the young leader of North Korea. Rodman visited there back in March and came home hoping to broker peace between the country and the U.S.
Now he's calling on Kim to release Kenneth Bae, a U.S. man arrested in North Korea back in November 2012. He was sentenced for "hostile acts" against the state, though those acts were not detailed, and sentenced to 15 years hard labor. It was reported at the time of Bae's detainment that he was involved with a Protestant religious movement.
Rodman tweets, "I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him "Kim", to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose."
Rodman adds that he was responding to the Seattle Times article that dares him »
This story first appeared in the May 17 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Nearly $20 million was raised for President Obama's re-election in the Los Angeles area, where Hollywood fundraisers played a significant role. So it's no shock that an unprecedented number of showbiz insiders are finalists for diplomatic appointments during Obama's second term. Among posts still in play, sources tell THR, is the coveted ambassadorship to France, previously thought to belong to hedge fund chief Marc Lasry, a major contributor to Obama and to Bill Clinton's Clinton Global Initiative. However, sources say Lasry withdrew his name after it

Bill Clinton may have both Southern charm and years of high-level diplomatic experience on his side, but even he could not convince Led Zeppelin to reunite. He asked the band to get back together and perform at last year's Superstorm Sandy benefit concert in New York, and was roundly rebuffed, the CBS 60 Minutes Overtime webcast reported today. Who did have some success in the whole attempt? Film exec Harvey Weinstein, who flew to DC to ask Clinton to approach the band, the AP reports.

The CBS "60 Minutes Overtime" webcast reported Monday that the former president was enlisted to ask the British rock gods to get back together last year for the Superstorm Sandy benefit concert in New York City. He asked, they said no.
David Saltzman of the Robin Hood Foundation says he and film executive Harvey Weinstein flew to Washington to ask Clinton to make the plea. Led Zeppelin's surviving members Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page were in Washington just before the Sandy concert for the Kennedy Center Honors.

A look at key moments this past week in the wrongful death trial in Los Angeles between Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, and concert giant Aeg Live, and what is expected at court in the week ahead:
Jackson's mother wants a jury to determine that the promoter of Jackson's planned comeback concerts didn't properly investigate Dr. Conrad Murray, who a criminal jury convicted of involuntary manslaughter for Jackson's June 2009 death. Aeg's attorney says the case is about personal choice, namely Jackson's decision to have Murray serve as his doctor and give him doses of a powerful anesthetic as a sleep aid. Millions, possibly billions, of dollars are at stake.
_ Jurors heard opening statements in which both sides told them Michael Jackson struggled with prescription drug addiction. Katherine Jackson's lawyers said Aeg is the only entity that claims it didn't know there was a problem, »
