A League of Their Own: Burning questions for the stars

29 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A League of Their Own is back tonight (August 29) and we're looking forward to seeing our favourite sports stars doing ridiculous things again - hooray! To celebrate the return of the show, we headed out to Elstree to hang out backstage with the boys - James Corden, Jack Whitehall, Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff - while they prepared for another show.

As well as making the frankly ridiculous decision to take on one of the endgames - we're not going to go into it, we're still cringing (and a little bit in pain) - we got the guys together for a bit of a chat, and found out what they had to say about some burning questions we have...

What's it like filming the show?

Like being back at school, apparently. But only the bit when school was fun. "I always think it's the one week of the year where »

Take another look @ actress Ashley Tisdale ("Sons Of Anarchy") from a recent issue of "Maxim" magazine.

Tisdale plays the lead character 'Jody' in "Scary Movie 5".

"There were so many cameos" Tisdale said about "Scary Movie 5", "and that's what I love about these movies. 

"They'd write a scene, then look for cameos, and they'd just pop in and do it.

"It was, like, 'Whoa, Mike Tyson's here'...and that wasn’t even planned!"

Tisdale's "High School Musical" track record included two TV movies, 1 feature film and several albums, with Tisdale following up with a Warner Bros. Records deal in 2006 allowing her to release the studio CDs "Headstrong" (2007) and "Guilty Pleasure" (2009).

Mike Tyson -- Slap Boxes Jon Jones ... Wins

18 August 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

He's still got it. Mike Tyson is still the champ when it comes to slap-boxing ... and Jon Jones learned that the hard way outside of WWE SummerSlam in L.A. Sunday night. The two were goofin' around in front of Staples Center -- when the fighters squared off ... with some open-handed pugilism. Jones handled himself pretty well ... until Mike moved to his inside and tagged the Ufc superstar right on the jaw -- and even »

The bad boys of law are back as Season 4 of TNT’s Franklin & Bash opens tonight at 10/9c — and TVLine has a “musical” preview of the interesting times ahead

Now, just because Infeld’s behind bars and they’re in charge of the firm, don’t expect Franklin or Bash to curb their party-throwing ways. If this Steve Porter remix of clips from Season 4 is any indication, things are only going to get wilder as the duo don kilts, wield puppets and… pole dance? Franklin even throws »

6 Shocking Brawls That Surrounded Huge Mma Fights

11 August 2014 12:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Gregory Payan/AP/Press Association Images

Sometimes, emotions get high before fights. Guys genuinely dislike each other, and have real beefs. There’s trash talk in the press. Barbs traded on Twitter and other social media platforms. Then come the press junkets and associated media appearances where fighters need to be in the same room as one another. Then the weigh-ins, and the “face off” where fighters stand face to face and pose the day before their actual fight.

All this can build up into an absolute powder keg, ready to go off at any moment as soon as one fighter or another loses their cool.

It’s not something that is unique to Mma – we’ve seen it in boxing as well, with Mike Tyson as a prime example.

In Mma, however, the frequency of events means you see much more of it, even if there’s about the same amount per capita. »

Mike Tyson Talks The Mike Tyson Mysteries, Pigeons, and Silence Of The Lambs at Comic-Con

7 August 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In a world with 500 cable channels, nearly infinite webpages, an ever-growing list Netflix original series, and billion-dollar-grossing video games, standing out is difficult.  Because of this, many shows and movies fall back on shock factor or name recognition to gain traction. The Mike Tyson Mysteries - premiering this fall on Adult Swim - has both in spades.  The latest cartoon from the venerable late night comedy block that seems to green light shows after extensive focus grouping on people whom they have dosed with LSD, stars the real Mike Tyson who, with the help of his adopted Korean daughter (Rachel Ramas), the ghost of the man who codified the rules for boxing (Jim Rash) and a talking, and extremely lecherous pigeon (Norm MacDonald), travel the countryside, solving mysteries.  Yeah. Last week at Comic-Con, Collider sat down with Tyson and talked about how Tyson came to Warner Brother’s with the idea and more. »

Jamie Foxx to Play Mike Tyson in Biopic

5 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last week, Variety reported that Jamie Foxx is attached to play one of the greatest boxing legends of all time in a new untitled biopic. Foxx will be taking on the role of Mike Tyson in the film, which is currently being written by Terence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street, Boardwalk Empire). This is an impressive set of talent so far, and Foxx seems like a good fit to play the athlete. 

According to the report, "producers are eager to tackle Tyson’s life story." There's no information on what aspects of the Tyson's life the film will focus on though. The boxer is "known for the power and ferocity he displayed in the ring, Tyson became not just the top boxer at the end of the ’80s but one of the most popular sports figures, with a rough around-the-edges personality he displayed both in and out of the ring. »

Man Arrested For Biting Someone At Beyonce and Jay Z's 'On The Run' Concert

3 August 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We've got a biter!

Well, we didn't see this coming. A fight broke out at Beyonce and Jay Z's Saturday On the Run show at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., and like that infamous fight between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield, there was a biter.

According to the L.A. Times, a 25-year-old man named Robert Alcaraz-Garnica was accused of groping a woman in the audience. The woman's boyfriend, who was not identified, instigated a fight with Alcaraz-Garnica in response.

Related: Keith Urban Breaks Silence on Alleged Concert Rape

That's when Alcaraz-Garnica allegedly proceeded to bite down on the boyfriend's finger. While reports at the time said that the man's finger was entirely severed, police would only confirm that the bite caused "serious injury."

Alcaraz-Garnica was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery and mayhem.

Is it just us or has weird things been happening at summer concerts this year? There was a shooting »

The Jamie Foxx as Mike Tyson Movie Should Go All ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ On Our Asses

1 August 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Traditionally we hear news about upcoming movies from an involved talent’s publicist or a studio press release. But we should never discount Mike Tyson as a sterling direct source for scoops, especially when the movie in question is about Mike Tyson. The boxer recently broke the following via IGN: “Listen, me and Jamie Foxx are in discussions, and within a year or 18 months we’re going to do the Mike Tyson Story.” Later, he added, “I think that Martin Scorsese is going to be involved in it as well.” Administer your grain of salt, as Tyson has a history of saying whatever thoughts pop into his head, but this time he appears to be right on the money. Per Variety, we now know that Foxx will in fact be starring in an Iron Mike story with a script to be written by Terence Winter. No official journalistic sources have breached the subject of Scorsese, but »

Jamie Foxx to Play Mike Tyson in Planned Biopic—Knockout Casting Alert!

31 July 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jamie Foxx may have met his next Oscar match. In a bit of Tko casting, the 46-year-old actor is attached to play Mike Tyson in an as-yet untitled biopic about the controversial and rather fascinating former heavyweight boxing champ being penned by Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter. Foxx's manager, Rick Yorn, is producing and has been instrumental in getting the project off the ground, according to Variety. While it's unclear as yet which areas of Tyson's life the film will focus on, the plot is rife with possibility, considering Tyson's triumph-and-tragedy-packed, rags-to-riches-to-prison-to-bankrupty-to-riches-to-pop-culture-infamy trajectory.

Jamie Foxx In Talks To Feature In Biopic Of Mike Tyson

31 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jamie Foxx is about to put his boxing gloves on and step up on to the ring, as it has been confirmed the Django Unchained actor is in talks to play former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

Having already won an Oscar for his critically acclaimed portrayal of Ray Charles in Ray, it has been revealed by Tyson himself that Foxx will portray the boxer in a biopic of his life. Tyson is considered one of the best heavyweights of all time, but has had his substantial share of controversy, especially his conviction of rape of an 18 year-old girl in 1991. During his three year stint in prison he converted to Islam, and later in 2003 he suffered financially and filed for bankruptcy. What is mainly interesting about this project is that the amazing CGI that was used in The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button may be used similarly in the film to »
