Park City. Jim Strouse's "People, Places, Things" plays like an 86 minute pilot for an HBO comedy series and even in this age of "TV and Movies Have Achieved Parity," I doubt that's what anybody wants to hear. But if you know me, you know I mean it largely as a compliment. And what does that mean? Well, not too much happens in "People, Places, Things." It's a low-incident narrative that's supposed to be about emotional truth mixed with humor, but a lot of the comedic beats are being played rather broadly. It feels as if the basic plot elements and, particularly, characters are in place at the end of the film for an ongoing storyline that might be amusing. Give me this cast and some of these characters on a weekly basis for 10 or 13 half-hour episodes per season and I could grow to really like them. And speaking of growth, »

Besides being incredibly beautiful - and seemingly aging backwards - Gabrielle Union is insanely smart, too. The actress, who stars in the Bet series Being Mary Jane, got candid on everything from race relations in Hollywood to her marriage to NBA star Dwyane Wade during a recent interview with Yahoo. Gabrielle also expounded on Chris Rock's recent argument about the lack of movie and TV roles for people of color, saying, "They say, 'We just went with the best candidate,' but if you're never considered, you never have a chance," and opened up about the prevalent state of racism in the Us, specifically the recent high-profile deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner. In addition to her perceptive thoughts on current events, Gabrielle tackled some lighter topics as well - and you'll definitely want to know which of today's biggest stars she would cast in a remake of Bring It On. »
Brr it's cold in here, there must be some Clovers in the atmosphere! It's been almost 15 years since cult-hit "Bring It On" was released, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about the classic 2000's teen-comedy. And apparently neither has infamous Clovers cheerleader, Gabrielle Union. In a recent interview with Yahoo Style, the "Being Mary Jane" star dished on who she thought could fill the shoes of the original cast members. The movie follows a champion high school cheerleading squad that discovers their former captain stole all their winning routines from an inner-city school. The 42-year-old actress was on point when she recast the movie with several of today's hottest young stars. First, she picked Keke Palmer as her character, Clover captain, Isis. Next, she chose Dakota Fanning as head Toros chearleader Torrance, played by Kirsten Dunst in the movie. Last, and probably the most surprising recasting was Selena Gomez as bad-girl Missy, »

Gabrielle Union practices what she preaches: fierceness. The Being Mary Jane star and Neutrogena ambassador can sound off knowledgeably on darn near any topic, from sports and personal style to politics and race relations, at the drop of a hat. But as she so astutely pointed out in a recent interview with Yahoo Style, that's just how a modern woman needs to be these days. "In this day, there's a news story about celebrities every second. People are demanding a lot more," Union explained. "The fact that I can do a press junket for a movie and people ask me what's happening in my uterus says a lot. They want 110 percent of what you have to offer. But now that I've been given a »

While stopping by E! News to promote the second season of Being Mary Jane, we had to ask the Bet star what are her secrets to looking so fabulous. Her answers may surprise you. "I don't abuse my body. I drink a gallon of water a day. I use Neutrogena," she shared with E! News. "A lot of it is really mind over matter and eliminating a lot of the Bs and learning to say no." Yes, it's really that simple. "I swear to God," Union explained. "The second I learned how »

The 2015 People's Choice Awards went down on Wednesday night at Nokia Theater L.A. Live -- and we saw some seriously sexy and, in some cases, not so stylish ensembles. Sarah Hyland sparkled in a gray Christian Siriano illusion dress with crystal embellishments. The "Modern Family" star completed her eye-catching ensemble with silver Alexandre Birman sandals, swept-back hair and a pretty nude lip. Gabrielle Union looked beyond beautiful in a plunging magenta Honor gown with an open back, which she styled with a silver lariat necklace. Host Allison Janney went glam in a floor-length silver sequins gown with a plunging neckline. She paired her dazzling look with a simple diamond bangle, tousled waves and a perfectly pink lip. While we loved one "Mom" star's look, Anna Faris missed the mark in a white top and skirt by Rani Zakhem.The ruffled peplum top looked out of place with the sleek skirt, »
