Watch Out, Jimmy Fallon: Stephen Colbert Can Sing (and Dance), Too!

13 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Jimmy Fallon joked on Twitter that Stephen Colbert will need to change his first name to Jimmy when he joins the ranks of late-night talk show hosts next year, but he might not be smiling once the Colbert Report star settles into David Letterman's chair. That's because Fallon is not the only triple threat in town - Colbert (who will be ditching his ultraconservative alter ego when he takes on the new gig) has some serious singing skills. We're talking Broadway serious. Here's Colbert on stage at the Lincoln Center in N.Y.C. in 2011 with Neil Patrick Harris in Company (and yes, »

Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones Claims He Was 'A Paid Hypocrite'

19 March 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Angus T. Jones grew up in front of America's eyes, but now the former Two and a Half Men star is finding a way to shine outside of Hollywood - from the pulpit. "It was making light of topics in our world that are really problems for a lot of people. I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn't okay with it, but I was still doing it," Jones, who after 10 years left his role as Jake on the still-thriving CBS sitcom, says of the series - which, in 2012, he had publicly called "filth". "I really want to be able to come into the light, »

Mila and Ashton Hug It Out on a Double Date With Jon Cryer

14 March 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are no strangers to showing off Pda, but on a date night on Wednesday, they weren't hugging each other. After having dinner in La, Mila was seen hugging Ashton's Two and a Half Men costar Jon Cryer while Ashton embraced Jon's wife, Lisa Joyner. Mila will be spending even more time with Jon when she guest stars on their show later this season. However, her character, Vivian, will have a much more complicated relationship with Ashton's character, Walden, than their real-life romance. Though the two feel an "instant connection" and Walden is convinced she's "the one," he's about to propose to someone else. But hey, Mila and Ashton do complicated well - remember Jackie and Kelso's roller-coaster relationship on That '70s Show? View Slideshow › »

Hollywood Reacts to Harold Ramis’ Death

24 February 2014 11:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harold Ramis, possibly best known for starring in “Ghostbusters” and “Stripes” and directing/writing “Caddyshack” and “Groundhog Day,” died Monday at 69.

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Harold Ramis Movie?

Given his status as a trailblazer, it’s no surprise that Hollywood bizzers — especially those of the comedic variety — have come out in droves to tweet or type out their thoughts about Ramis and his legacy.

Harold Ramis and I together did ‘The National Lampoon’ show off-Broadway, ‘Meatballs,’ ‘Stripes,’ ‘Caddyshack,’ ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Groundhog Day,’” said Bill Murray. “He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him.”

Harold Ramis made almost every movie which made me want to become a comedy director,” Judd Apatow said. “‘Animal House,’ ‘Stripes,’ ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Vacation,’ ‘Groundhog Day.’ These films are the touchstones of our lives. I interviewed him when I was 16 years old for my high school radio station and he could not have been more gracious and hilarious. »

Two and a Half Men Recruits Kimberly Williams-Paisley as Love Interest

13 February 2014 9:37 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Two and a Half Men is up to its usual tricks, which is to say it’s behaving in a way I would totally expect from a high school kid frustrated with not getting his way. I’m getting frustrated myself with how shallow the character of Alan (Jon Cryer) is. Maybe I’m just so used to him being despicable and I’m jumping to conclusions, but I have a pretty good idea of where this show is taking his character and I just think it’s so terrible. It’s like, where are the redeeming qualities in this guy? Why are attractive women like Kimberly Williams-Paisley dating him? What do they see?

According to Deadline, Williams-Paisley has signed up for a multiple episode arc as Gretchen, a new love interest for Alan and the sister to his friend Larry (D.B Sweeney). On a normal series, this would »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 20-11

2 February 2014 9:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.
