150 random celebrities, painstakingly sorted into Hogwarts houses

8 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.

First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning, »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

Kevin Costner Circling Ariel Vromen’s Criminal

18 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Costner comeback continues with news that the Academy Award winner is in negotiations to take the lead role in the sci-fi thriller Criminal – currently being developed by Millennium Films. The film would see the actor as an unpredictable and dangerous character, who finds himself in the unusual predicament of being needed for action on the government side of the law. The knowledge and skills of a deceased CIA operative are implanted into his brain, and the shadowy organization asks him to finish the mission.

Criminal has Ariel Vromen attached to helm the project. Having made his first feature film – Simple Lies – in 2005, his most high profile directorial (and co-writing) effort to date has been 2012’s The Iceman – the true story of a contract killer – starring Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer.

Though the plot synopsis perhaps sounds like a Bourne Identity meets Strange Days kind of story, »

David Schwimmer is a True Detective, Joins Season 2

28 May 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Got a text message from the editorial team: "David Schwimmer joined True Detective 2"

Which made things really difficult in Google land because earlier this week Schwimmer was involved in solving an actual crime.

From CNN:

Schwimmer -- best known for his starring role as Ross Geller on the 10-year hit NBC show -- invited cops into his New York City townhouse Monday to view his surveillance video of a bloody brawl that took place in the adjacent apartment building, according to Sgt. Tom Antonetti of the NYPD.

The dispute began at 5:48 a.m. on the first floor of an East Village apartment building involving three individuals regarding the theft of a computer, police said. The disagreement became physical and one of the individuals involved suffered stab wounds to the face, police said. The victim was treated at Bellevue Hospital, they said.

The alleged stabber was arrested by police, but »

David Schwimmer Helps Solve Stabbing Case in New York City

27 May 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

David Schwimmer has already proven himself to be a good "Friend" thanks to his stint on the long-running NBC sitcom. Turns out, he's a pretty good neighbor, too. The New York Post reports that the actor is helping police solve a stabbing that took place near his New York City home on Memorial Day.

According to the Post, a drunken brawl between a man and an alleged prostitute took place in the building next to Schwimmer's East Village townhouse early Monday morning, with the two men breaking through a glass door and one getting stabbed in the face. The stabbing victim -- the alleged john -- was taken to the hospital, while his assailant ran off; a third man was also arrested in connection with the incident.

Since police only had the word of the victim to go on, they needed more evidence to support his story, and noticed a »

That's what 'Friends' are for: David Schwimmer helps police solve stabbing case

27 May 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

David Schwimmer: Friend, and now, crime-solver.

Early Monday morning, a fight broke out in the lobby of the building next to Schwimmer’s New York City residence. The brawl sent both men to the hospital — and shortly afterwards, Schwimmer offered to let the police take a look at footage from his security cameras so they could see what really went down. Admittedly, Schwimmer still isn’t at Ryan Gosling status — he would have had to actually stop the fight and, you know, be Ryan Gosling – but hey, a man can try.

Schwimmer’s security footage ended up being a big help, »

Candy Spelling dumped a lover over a penile implant, Rep. Allen West says Glsen is indoctrinating children, can marriage equality in all 50 states arrive by next June?

On a typical Monday in New York, a 26-year-old man and the 21-year-old prostitute he’d called to his home got into a fight when he refused to pay the man. It got ugly, breaking a glass door in the lobby, and police were having trouble reconstructing the fight when David Schwimmer appeared and told them his security cameras next door had captured the whole fight, making him a hero. I hope the prostitute got paid in the end. So that’s what Ross has been up to these days.

So it seems that Pixar’s next film, Inside Out, is basically Herman’s Head for teenage girls.

The former Friends star provided security camera footage taken outside his apartment that helped identify the suspect in a case involving a transvestite prostitute and a knife-wielding robber

The actor David Schwimmer has helped New York police in their arrest of a man who allegedly attempted to rob and knife one of his neighbours.

Robert Rainey was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and robbery, after he allegedly snuck into the man's apartment to steal a laptop. The neighbour was reportedly engaged with a transvestite prostitute he'd booked, but confronted the man on hearing him enter the apartment. The prostitute, who may have been an accomplice, used pepper spray on the client before running off; the man, defending himself with a knife, ended up having it turned on him during a fracas with the robber that spilled out into the street.
