Watch: Gerard Butler Takes On Terrorists In First Trailer For 'London Has Fallen'

1 July 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Depending on where your politics lay, "London Has Fallen" may also be an all too accurate description of the recent election results in the United Kingdom. But it's also the title of the unlikely sequel of the unlikely hit "Olympus Has Fallen," the first of the dueling 2013 blockbusters about the White House coming under siege (the other was "White House Down," which earned more at the box office, but also had double the budget). And the first trailer has arrived for another tale of bad guys, honorable presidents and the people who work for them.

Interview: Jada Pinkett Smith Plays Host in ‘Magic Mike Xxl’

30 June 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Jada Pinkett Smith was doing it her way long before she became half of one of Hollywood’s biggest power couples. From modest beginnings, she worked her way up through the entertainment ranks on television, movies and in a metal band (more on that below). She portrays Rome in the sequel “Magic Mike Xxl.”

Jada Pinkett Smith was born in Baltimore, and was raised by her mother and grandmother. After graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts – where she majored in dance and theatre – she moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. After some minor TV parts, she appeared as a regular on the series “A Different World.” She recently came back to TV, portraying the mysterious Fish Mooney on the dark comic book series called “Gotham.”

Channing Tatum and Jada Pinkett Smith on Magic Mike Xxl's radical positivity

26 June 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When Jada Pinkett Smith got the call from her agent about the Magic Mike sequel script, there was something she needed to know: Her part as Rome, the owner of a male strip club, was written for a man.

"I was like, Ok?" she said.  She was skeptical, if intrigued.

Pinkett Smith had actually been thinking about the world of strippers; though she'd never set foot in a strip club, she had just wrapped a documentary for CNN in Atlanta that dealt with strip clubs and sex trafficking.

She agreed to Skype with Magic Mike Xxl star and producer Channing Tatum and director Gregory Jacobs. "That was a very interesting call," she said.

Originally, Tatum had wanted Jamie Foxx for the role. He wanted to show people the side of Foxx he'd seen during a fun party, but it didn't work out "for a lot of reasons."

11 Magic Mike Xxl Details From Channing Tatum You Need to Know Before Seeing the Movie

24 June 2015 4:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Magic Mike Xxl is just over a week away from its release, exposing us to another round of bare abs and more gyrating than we'll know what to do with, courtesy of stars Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, and more. Last year, I had the chance to go to the Georgia set of the sequel to see some of the film being shot and interview all the guys, and after I recovered, I had a lot to reveal about the highly anticipated movie. Tatum, star, producer, and all-around delightful human, chatted with me and a group of reporters about the film and how it's different from the first movie (a really good thing), and now we can let you in on what we learned. Strap yourself in, because you're going to love everything he says about Magic Mike Xxl. 1. Tatum Regretted Not Focusing on the Guys More in the First Movie, »

Watch: Seth MacFarlane Does Spot-On Liam Neeson in ‘Taken’ Impression

23 June 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth MacFarlane put his voice acting skills to good use on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday.

The “Ted 2” star was given a chance to play the game Impression Generator, where the guest gets a chance to do impressions of fellow celebrities while simultaneously talking about an ordinary topic.

MacFarlane landed on Liam Neeson and Time Warner Cable, which, unsurprisingly, made the company mildly terrifying.

“I have a very particular set of channels,” he started. After bringing the action hero to the cable provider, MacFarlane also did impressions of Bobcat Goldthwait, Pee-Wee Herman and Ray Romano.

MacFarlane follows Jamie Foxx and Christina Aguilera, who also went viral following their spins on the Impression Generator.
