NY Giants Linebacker -- Phil Collins Can Help Us Beat Dallas ... We Can Feel It

18 October 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

The secret to beating the Dallas Cowboys? Phil Collins. Well, maybe he can help -- because NY Giants head coach Tom Coughlin turned to Phil's best song to help fire up his team this week ... so says linebacker Mark Herzlich. Herzlich says Coughlin decided to play some music during practice this week to get the team ready for their Huge game against the Dallas Cowboys ... and Tom decided Phil's jam could help pump up the intensity. »

17 October 2014 8:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) You may not know The Birthday Boys, but you’ll definitely recognize quite a few of the faces on "The Birthday Boys," the sketch comedy group’s TV show that returns for a second season tonight at 11:30 on IFC. The Birthday BoysJefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen — started as a stage show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles, and caught plenty of high-profile attention over the years; notably Bob Odernkirk and Ben Stiller (who have a shared history on sketch comedy with Fox’s short-lived but fondly remembered 1992 series The Ben Stiller Show). Odenkirk and Stiller serve as executive producers on "The Birthday Boys" TV show, with Odenkirk appearing frequently in the show’s first season. This year, though Odenkirk retains a presence on "The Birthday Boys," his schedule (including filming "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better »

Review: 'Mike Tyson Mysteries' Proves That Iron Mike Isn't Afraid to Dress Himself Down

17 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I’m sure Mike Tyson is the last person that many expected to appear on Adult Swim in any capacity, especially in an animated Hanna-Barbera-style mystery show. And yet, when he’s running through the desert of Cormac McCarthy’s ranch attempting to lay the beatdown on La Chupacabra while being chased by his adopted Korean daughter, the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry, and a foul-mouthed pigeon, the question becomes why no one thought to bring this to series before. Between high profile marriages and divorces, constant run-ins with the law, and being the former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, Tyson was a celebrity of the highest order in his heyday in the 1970s and 80s, drawing »

Watch *Epic* New York Comic-Con Trailer For Adult Swim's New Comedy Series, 'Mike Tyson Mysteries'

13 October 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Adult Swim's 2014-2015 slate will feature several new (and returning) TV series, including "Mike Tyson Mysteries," a half-hour animated adult comedy series featuring a cartoon version of Mike Tyson, who solves mysteries, aided by the Mike Tyson Mystery Team, which is made up of the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensbury, Mike’s adopted Korean daughter, and a pigeon who was once a man. Reads like must-see TV, doesn't it? Seriously, based on the below new trailer, I'm genuinely curious. It could be really hilarious... or not. But I'm good for at least the premiere episode. Mike Tyson, Norm Macdonald, Rachel Ramras, and Jim Rash provide voice for the series' animated »

Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac Step Out the First Time Since Becoming Parents—See the Pics!

9 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Scarlett Johansson is one hot mama! The actress was photographed in New York City Wednesday for the first time since she gave birth to daughter Rose Dorothy in early September. Wearing an Avengers hat, plus a Nike Dri-fit windbreaker, Champion yoga pants and New Balance kicks, the 29-year-old movie star's post-baby body looked trim. Johansson was all smiles while kissing her fiancé, Romain Dauriac. Dressed casually in jeans and a Mike Tyson tee, the ad exec also wore a gold ring, leading some to wonder if he's secretly married the actress. The new parents began dating in late 2012 after they were introduced through a mutual friend, tattoo artist Fuzi Uvtpk. In September 2013, Johansson, 29, first flashed »

'WWE Raw:' The Rock 'n' Schlock Connection

7 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For the first time since March, Monday Night Raw made its triumphant return to Brooklyn's Barclays Center. It's a journey that, going by surprise guest The Rock's Gps, necessitates touching down on the corner of Jabroni Drive and Cheap-Pop Avenue and trekking across all four of NYC's other boroughs before finally arriving in Bk to generate some heat and debut a vintage Mike Tyson varsity jacket.

Or, if you're the rest of us, it meant plopping down on a chaise lounge and plodding through three-plus hours of largely Herculean silliness. »

Mike Tyson on Solving Mysteries, Returning to Broadway and Punching Dinosaurs

2 October 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In addition to being the baddest man on the planet, Mike Tyson is also a best-selling author, occasional star of stage and screen, friend of the Black Keys and longtime pigeon aficionado. So, in a way, his latest project makes perfect sense.

It's called Mike Tyson Mysteries, an animated ode to Hanna-Barbera's canon of classic '70s capers (Scooby-Doo, Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, etc). Set to premiere October 27 on – where else? – Adult Swim, it's very bit as odd as you'd imagine, though even that might be selling it short. »

10 Fantasy Wrestling Matches That Never Happened

24 September 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Everyone loves to talk about “what if” in sports.  What if the 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers played the 1984 San Francisco 49ers?  What if Babe Ruth played in Major League Baseball today?  What if Muhammad Ali fought Mike Tyson?  The questions and discussions are endless and allow us to imagine what could have been if situations were different.

Professional wrestling is no different.  Even though it is a predetermined sport, fans want to see the best against the best and fantasy booking is extremely popular online.  Certain wrestlers seem to be natural opponents for others but, for a variety of different reasons, the matches simply never happened.  Whether they were separated by time, distance, promotions, or backstage attitudes, these wrestlers never had the right situation to meet in the ring.

Honestly, we could sit and argue for hours over who should win these matches but, at the end of the day, »

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Street Fighter

16 September 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Capcom

Street Fighter I wasn’t the most popular of games. It was dull, linear and very difficult. Regardless, Capcom decided to go ahead with a sequel anyway and created one of the most important video games of all time. It’s rare that a game is so groundbreaking that it creates an entire genre by itself, but Street Fighter II arguably did just that. With its revolutionary combo mechanics, wide roster of characters and perfection of multi-player fighting, Street Fighter II subsequently led to the birth of several other significant fighting series. The thing is, several of the innovations that came about in Street Fighter II weren’t down to just genius, but luck, consequence and timing were also relevant factors.

Certain events, stories and details of Street Fighter’s production process have become common knowledge over the years, yet, there’s still a surprising amount that even the »

Robin Givens Calls Ray Rice Domestic Abuse Scandal a ‘Game Changer’ (Video)

12 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Domestic violence has become a national hot topic in the wake of the shocking video of NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator, and now actress Robin Givens, who allegedly suffered spousal abuse from ex-husband Mike Tyson, is speaking out on the issue. Appearing on The Today Show on Friday, Givens calls the Rice tape a “game-changer” if simply for the fact that the video takes the credibility issue off the table. “It's hard to be believed,” Givens said of her own experience and in talking to other domestic abuse victims. “Being believed is an issue.” Also read: Chris Brown's Advice. »
