Bez and Abz from 5ive discuss their financial woes in this strange slice of TV schadenfreude. But the big-hitters are nowhere to be seen
Pop went the Irish property bubble, and with it went Shane Filan from Westlife’s millions. Everything he had was invested in Irish property, and when the Celtic Tiger died, that was the end of Shane’s estimated £30m too. Mike Tyson blew his money – about $300m – on, among other things, a tiger (Bengal not Celtic), a gold bathtub and the rest. Mc Hammer gold-plated his gates, as well as handing over millions to some of his old pals from the ghetto. You can touch this, he told them, generously.
We’re talking famous people who have taken big falls – for a variety of reasons including greed, vanity, stupidity, addiction, bad advice, bad friends, naivety etc. Bankrupt & Broke: When Celebs Go Bust (Channel 5), the show is called. »

Even though XXX: The Return of Xander Cage just lost an action icon, it has scored quite a casting coup in the process. It appears that Jet Li has dropped out of the long-anticipated action thriller. But replacing him is the legendary Donnie Yen. The Hong Kong box office star is just coming off of Ip Man 3 starring opposite Mike Tyson. And will next be seen in the December blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Vin Diesel shared a photo of himself on set this morning with Donnie Yen, which you can see below. He also shared a photo of himself on his motocross bike, doing another insane jump in the air. A source close to the production says that Jet Li had to be replaced quickly after dropping out for undisclosed reasons. Donnie Yen was quick to accept the open position, which is believed to be the main villain. »

The critically acclaimed Saala Khadoos that uniquely traces the journey of a relationship between a coach and his protege in the field of boxing won many hearts, especially that of sports enthusiasts. One amongst them was the renowned international boxer Mike Tyson. While his name has been synonymous with the sport for years, it was an honour for the makers of Saala Khadoos to see him expressing his desire to watch the film and now, Rajkumar Hirani (the producer) and Madhavan (the lead actor) have decided to fulfill his wish. Rajkumar Hirani and Madhavan will now fly to the Us to host a special screening of Saala Khadoos for Mike Tyson. It so happened that after the release of this bilingual film (released in Tamil as Irudhi Suttru), Mike Tyson took to his official page on Facebook saying, "I'd like to see this boxing film" along with a post about the film. »

R Madhavan who spent two years of his life bulking up to look like the raging ex-boxer in Sudha Kongara's pugilistic drama Saala Khadoos is floating in the air after Mike Tyson tweeted that he wanted to see his boxing film Saala Khadoos. Says Madhavan, "That is an unexpected and unfathomable honour. I am in a daze and elated. Now to take the film to him. And see what he says." The ecstatic actor intends to watch the film with Tyson. »

Many big screen biographies are often accused of taking…liberties…with the facts, often to help the finished film’s pacing. After all, unless it’s a TV mini-series, it’s difficult to compress a remarkable life into an evening at the movies. Film makers will frequently switch the order of events along with the popular practice of using composite characters (a little bit of this fella’, and a bit of this old pal, and…), even inventing supporting roles, or tagging real folks with invented names. And then there are fantasy tales using a real person (and elements of his life) as the story’s heroic center. In Hollywood famous true Western outlaws like Billy the Kid and Jesse James were the leads in many fictional flicks (hey, those two “met” Dracula and Frankenstein’s daughter!). Those on the opposite side of the law like Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson »

For the past few years, documentary filmmaker David Sinnott has been shoot-interviewing wrestlers and professional fighters, compiling material for his documentary, Nine Legends. It’s a true Mount Rushmore of fighters as well, more than delivering on the ‘Legend’ promise of the title.
The full list of those interviewed by Sinnott for the project are: Goldberg, Bret Hart, The Dynamite Kid, Rob Van Dam, Mike Tyson, Randy Couture, Lita, Ted Dibiase and Chris Jericho. Quite the range of stars, I’m sure you’ll agre.
Fans of wrestling docs may already recognise Sinnott’s name from his acclaimed 2009 effort, Bloodstained Memoirs, which followed a similar template, interviewing another 9 stars, including the likes of Ultimo Dragon, Mick Foley, The Great Muta, Roddy Piper and others.
In Nine Legends, the film hangs on a fictional narrative of an elderly Sinnott, in the year 2050, recounting the stories of his interviews to his grandson. »

Featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Goldberg, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Dynamite Kid, Amy Dumas, Rob Van Dam, Ted Dibiase, Randy Couture, and Mike Tyson (who announced the movie on his Facebook pag… »
Cm Punk has just undergone a sizable downgrade – in a video game, anyway. Following considerable outcry from fans over the fact that Punk, a fighter with zero amateur or professional fights who has yet to compete in the Ufc, was reportedly gifted an 85 rating in EA Sports’ upcoming Ufc 2 game – the company has gone into damage control mode, and announced that instead, the fighter will be at the absolute bottom of the talent pool.
Fighters in Ufc 2 are ranked out of 100, and the 85 score put Punk well above the level many feel he is at as a mixed martial artist.
On a Twitch livestream with Ufc flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson earlier this week, the creative director of Ufc 2, EA Sports’ Brian Hayes, stated that the version with the 85 rating – which put Punk above veteran fighters like Tim Means, and fighters from the version game in the series like Pat Berry – was a beta, »

Now in theatrical release across the USA, Wilson Yip concludes his martial arts biopic trilogy with Ip Man 3 in which Donnie Yen again reprises his role as the iconic martial arts master, and teacher to Bruce Lee. Donnie Yen ignites the screen in a return to his iconic role of Ip Man, the real-life Wing Chun Kung Fu master who mentored Bruce Lee. In this explosive third installment of the blockbuster martial arts series, when a band of brutal gangsters led by a crooked property developer (Mike Tyson) make a play to take over the city, Master Ip is forced to take a stand. Fists will fly as some of the most incredible fight scenes ever filmed, choreographed by the legendary Yuen Woo Ping...

Fans of old-school kung fu will eat up the rock-solid, joint-snapping fights in “Ip Man 3,” the long-awaited reunion of Hong Kong helmer Wilson Yip and action juggernaut Donnie Yen, here prolonging the saga of the Wing Chun grandmaster who famously taught Bruce Lee. Less offensively nationalistic than the second installment but falling short of the glowing humanity, genial Cantonese humor and visual flair of the first, the pic is somewhat tarnished by its pedestrian plot and limp characterization. It has presold to many territories and garnered respectable box office of more than $7.6 million in Hong Kong, while receiving considerable attention in the U.S. press for an Asian film. However, the delay of a planned China release (with 3D conversion) from New Year’s Eve to March may deal a serious blow to its overall tally.
Since “Ip Man”s release in 2009, a sequel helmed by Yip and four other related biopics have appeared, »

1998 kicked off in bizarre fashion with one of the strangest Royal Rumble PPVs ever – culminating in an actual murder attempt on Undertaker – and you can bet your bottom dollar the following Raw is just as kooky. We’re in for an absolute treat this week, with backstage shenanigans, outrageous in-ring promos, and a closing segment that has since gone down in Raw history.
I’m referring of course to the infamous in-ring confrontation between Steve Austin and Mike Tyson, billed as the “baddest” men in their respective fields. Tyson was a guest at the previous night’s pay-per-view, and declared himself a big fan of Stone Cold, but that all gets undone on tonight’s show.
Elsewhere, we’re treated to wonderfully weird appearances from Paul Bearer, Vince Russo, and two fake Undertakers.
Strap in, folks – we’re on the road to WrestleMania 14.

Oh, Josh Brolin. He had an interesting time on "The Tonight Show." First, Jimmy Fallon helped shave off Brolin's "'70s porn stache" for a movie he just finished. Then, a clean-shaven Josh joined Jimmy and Kate McKinnon for a round of "First Impressions." In the game, the trio were each assigned celebrities to impersonate on the spot, and the others had to guess the celebs.
After that, Josh was given Kim Kardashian, and that's when things got weird. He started looking around for props ("I need something big") and picked up a box of Kleenex and put it on his butt. "Imagine this is in my pants." (!) He paced around with that box on his butt, then repeated, in his own normal voice, »

Jimmy Fallon recruited Josh Brolin and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon for a round of "First Impressions" during Tuesday's Tonight Show – and the obvious highlight was Brolin attempting to impersonate Kim Kardashian. Unable to recreate the reality star's accent, the Hail Caesar! actor held a tissue box against his ass and flipped back his imaginary long hair. To his credit, Fallon and McKinnon guessed correctly.
Brolin started the game with a spot-on characterization of Regis Philbin's impatient shout – "I was riding my snowblower around all weekend. My ass is killing me! »
Kate McKinnon really brought her A-game to The Tonight Show along with fellow guest Josh Brolin in a game aptly dubbed ‘First Impressions’. Most notably recognized for her portrayals of Justin Bieber, Ellen Degeneres, and Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live, McKinnon continues to deliver the laughs here as Christopher Walken. Of course host and SNL alum Jimmy Fallon played along, pulling from his own talents of being quite the great impressionist himself. His Mike Tyson lisp was spot-on for claiming to never have done him before! Brolin held his own against these two seasoned comedians, as you’ll see in
