1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anne Meara, the Emmy- and Tony-nominated comedian long paired personally and professionally with Jerry Stiller and the mother of actor-director Ben Stiller, died Saturday, her husband and son told the Associated Press. She was 85.

No further details have been revealed. A statement released to the AP said Jerry Stiller was Meara’s “husband and partner in life.”

“The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long,” the statement said.

Stiller and Meara were a top comedy act in the 1960s, appearing on “The Ed Sullivan Show” some 36 times. Meara and Stiller were members of the improv group the Compass Players, which later became Second City.

Although Meara had converted to Judaism when the couple got married, Stiller & Meara’s material centered on the differences in their ethnic backgrounds, epitomized by their signature “Hershey Horowitz/Mary Elizabeth Doyle” routines.

In 2010 the couple had their own Yahoo comedy series, »

The New Kids On The Block guys still got it!  Donnie Wahlberg took to Instagram over the weekend to share a new pic with his NKotB band mates, Joey McIntyre, 45 and Danny Wood, 46.  "Not bad for a few old men! Hard work pays! #TheMainEvent," the 45-year-old captioned the semi-shirtless gym shot.  It definitely looks like the former pop stars are still in great shape -- just look at those abs!  The singers have been traveling all across the country for the last few months for their tour titled, "The Main Event," and it's great to see that they still make time to hit the gym.  Earlier this month, Donnie's gorgeous wife, Jenny McCarthy, got a super special tattoo to honor her equally sexy hubby.  McCarthy posted a candid snap of her new ink on Instagram, which read "Donnie" and "Love" on her index and middle fingers.  "Cuz I do...," she captioned the photo. »

Ranking the Films of James Wan

21 March 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Edward Gardiner ranks the films of James Wan

James Wan: love him or hate him, he knows how to make an audience tick.

After navigating his way to the rare status of financially lucrative horror director, Wan landed the gig of helming the utterly mad-looking Fast & Furious 7, with series regular Justin Lin moving onto other things.  As it gears up for an imminent release, this seems like a good opportunity to rank Aussie director’s films in order of quality so far. Wasting no time…

6. Death Sentence, 2007

A little-seen revenge picture starring Kevin Bacon as a family man who goes all one man army on a group of thugs who murdered his son, Death Sentence is an interesting but flawed piece.  An enjoyably nasty performance from Garrett Hedlund and a terrific single-take foot chase stand out, and the frolicsome approach to the direction gives the impression Wan was »

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Lands an R-Rating in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

17 March 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On the heels of the premiere of the first footage from Mad Max: Fury Road at the SXSW Film Festival the film has now scored a hard-r rating from the MPAA for "intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images." That should make fans of the franchise happy as we are now just under two months away from the film's May 15 release. Also in today's bulletin in Fox Searchlight's Sundance acquisition and Oscar hopeful Brooklyn, David Gordon Green's Manglehorn starring Al Pacino, the new Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy (read Mike's review from SXSW right here) and a re-rate of Johnny Depp's Mortdecai, most likely for home video release. You'll also notice an R-rating for a movie called Tooken, which is, as you probably guessed, a Taken parody starring the likes of Donnie Wahlberg, Lukas Haas and Jenny McCarthy. Check out the complete bulletin below. The 100-Year Old »

Why Jenny McCarthy Is Done Having Kids: Watch Now!

11 March 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

How did Jenny McCarthy handle blending her and Donnie Wahlberg's families when they got married? "Integration is not easy for any family, so it took baby steps in some areas," McCarthy, who has son Evan, told E! News exclusively of her and her hubby, who also has two sons, Elijah and Xavier. The 42-year-old added, "We talked about this last night, we said, 'It's funny how we can see how each child is a blessing for each other.' Like Evan is so influenced by Elijah, Donnie's son who's his similar age. And how Elijah means to me in my life that I didn't necessarily get from anybody before. So if everyone can just realize that integration is for a reason and you look at it like »
