Rick Moranis Returns To Comedy After A 20-Year Reclusive Period

2 June 2017 7:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been 20 years since Rick Moranis last appeared onscreen, in the mind-bendingly titled “Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.” A fixture of ’80s and ’90s blockbuster comedies, Moranis was beloved for his iconic roles in “Ghostbusters,” “Spaceballs,” and for leading the “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” franchise. He stepped away from acting in 1997 in order to focus on his family, only returning for the very occasional voiceover or writing gig.

What Happened to Carrot Top? Looking Back on His Career and Seeing Where He Is Now

31 March 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

At his peak, Carrot Top was a standout comic who made waves with his interactive stand-up shows, which often included crazy props such as confetti cannons and fog machines. Throughout the '90s Carrot Top, whose real name is Scott Thompson, transformed the world of stand-up comedy and ultimately made the transition into TV, with his first appearance taking place on The Tonight Show in 1992. But where has he been these days? Carrot Top hasn't been seen on TV in a while, nor has he been attending many red carpet events. Perhaps his absence from mainstream Hollywood is what inspired his segment on Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?. That being said, Carrot Top hasn't disappeared at all. While he most »

First Look at Woody Woodpecker Movie

10 March 2017 12:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

According to IMDb, Woody Woodpecker is coming to theaters in 2017 in his first ever movie. Which is odd, since we've heard little to nothing at all about it. Today, we have a look at the annoying bird courtesy of Imp Awards. This one-sheet is for international audiences, which has us wondering if this is even going to get a proper release on America shores.

The Woody Woodpecker movie is taking on an environmentally conscious theme, and will tackle social issues with a deft hand at the comedy fans have come to know and love. The plot finds the hyperactive red-head entering a turf war with a big city lawyer who wants to tear down his home. This is all in an effort to build a house to flip. From the poster, we'd assume that this is a fully animated CGI movie. But we'd be wrong, as it's listed as being »

13 January 2017 11:46 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jonathan and Drew Scott are once again proving they’re a triple threat — that’s real estate, general contracting, and country music, of course.

The stars of Hgtv’s Property Brothers have just released their latest foray into the music world with a cover of Flo Rida’s My House. 

“I was sitting in the car when I first heard this song . . . and I thought to myself, I’m like, ‘Wow, this would make a great country song,'” Jonathan told Et of the single. Within a month, they’d teamed up with a Nashville music producer and reworked the »

Exclusive: The Scott Brothers, Drew and Jonathan, Give Flo Rida's 'My House' a Country Spin -- Watch!

12 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Scott Brothers are back with a brand new music video!

Drew and Jonathan Scott, best known from their home renovation show, Property Brothers, on Hgtv, shared the full clip for their country take on Flo Rida's "My House" exclusively with Et on Thursday.

Watch: The Scott Brothers Talk Girlfriends and Working With a Significant Other

In the cover video -- which features singer Eric Paslay and a cameo by Carrot Top -- the two begin to get ready for a pool party they planned, but realize they had forgotten about their important "Architects Quarterly" photo shoot that was scheduled on the same day. Trying to keep their cool, Drew and Jonathan still invite the photographer and reporters into their home, posing for pics and distracting the team as guests not-so-slyly keep the party going.

Towards the end of the video, however, the Scott Brothers are in for a pleasant surprise when one of the reporters »
