Following months of work all over Peru, including trucking animals hundreds of miles across the Andes, Adi has just this week emptied the last wild animals from Peru’s traveling circuses as part of this record-breaking mission. 30 African lions are now in the care […] »

Nothing gets us giddy quite like an epic celebrity movie cameo.
An A-lister who appears in an often uncredited role with minimal screen time and, we have no idea it's coming — how could we not love that?!
Alfred Hitchcock was the cameo master of his time, appearing in 39 of his 52 surviving films. People loved searching for him like a real life Where's Waldo. Even more recently, Interstellar blew us away with a crazy unexpected cameo that we don't want to give away quite yet…but it got us thinking about other unexpected appearances in movies!
So let's take a look at some of our favorite film cameos of all-time.
Warning: Possible Spoilers Ahead.
Johnny Depp -- 21 Jump Street
Johnny Depp paid perfect homage to his 21 Jump Street roots. Spending most of the role in disguise, he ultimately reveals his identity leaving Jonah Hill's character to declare, "You're like an amazing actor man!"

World Wrestling Entertainment loves involving celebrities. Whether they are in the ring having matches, guest ring announcing, singing the national anthem, guest hosting Raw to plug whatever movie they’re in or just hanging out in the crowd, the celebrity involvement has always been important to WWE.
It’s smart of WWE to want to involve celebrities. They built the WrestleMania brand around the use of celebrities after all. The presence of big stars like Mr. T, Muhammad Ali and Cyndi Lauper really put WrestleMania on the map. It caused casual fans to watch because of those people, but then they kept watching because they liked what WWE was doing.
Some celebrities are great guests on wrestling shows. Others look lost out there. The ones that usually show that they belong are people that grew up as wrestling fans or maybe they’re still fans. If you watched WWE during »

Bob Barker, the former host of "The Price is Right," brings his animal advocacy to a whole new level in this clip from "The Bold and the Beautiful." Barker, who became a vegetarian in 1979, always signed off each show reminding viewers to spay and neuter pets; he's also donated millions of dollars to various advocacy groups and programs, including $5 million to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for an anti-whaling ship.
The nonagenarian lands quite a few punches on Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) after hearing Wyatt talk smack about animal lovers - but not before advising the young man to consider adopting a pet himself. Barker told TV Guide, "CBS and ['B&B' exec producer] Brad Bell have been incredible about using the soap to increase awareness. And if I get a chance to punch out a guy who thinks animal lovers are stupid wackos, even better!" Hey, Wyatt's got a pretty punchable face.

The price is wrong, bitch! Game show icon Bob Barker will spoof his classic fight scene from Happy Gilmore — the one where he beat the bejesus out of Adam Sandler — on the Thursday, Aug. 28 episode of CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful.

"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek became the answer to his own bit of trivia last week when the longtime game show host set a Guinness World Record for most episodes of a single game show hosted by the same presenter.
Trebek hit the milestone last Friday, when he wrapped his 6,829th episode of the venerable quiz show. The "Jeopardy!" host beat out former "The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker, the previous holder of the Guinness record.
Despite suffering several heart attacks throughout "Jeopardy!"'s 30-year run under his tenure, Trebek has never missed an episode due to illness. The only installment of the show he didn't helm during that timeframe came in 1997, when he switched duties with "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak for an April Fool's Day prank.
"It's an honor to hold the Guinness World Record for hosting Jeopardy!, which I've often said is the best of reality T. »

I love it when I'm watching a movie and all of a sudden, out of nowhere there's a surprise appearance by a big, well-known actor. Sometimes the roles are funny, sometimes actors parody themselves, and then there are times when we get an incredible dramatic performance. There are a ton of great movie cameos out there, but I thought I'd put together a list of 20 cameos and small movie roles that I have enjoyed over the years.
There are some famous cameos such as Stan Lee's Marvel movie cameos and the Anchorman cameos that I purposely left off the list because they seem to be obvious choices.
Look over my list and let me know what your favorite movie cameos are in the comment section!
This is by far my favorite movie cameo of all time. Murray is absolutely hilarious in every way. »

Bob Barker is returning to TV! The 90-year-old former Price Is Right host has nabbed himself a guest-starring role on the CBS daytime soap The Bold and the Beautiful. Barker will make his Tbatb cameo on the show's Apr. 30 episode. Barker will play himself and have a three-day long story arc that focuses on animal rescue and the control of pet population (Barker is of course known for signing off each episode of The Price Is Right with, "Help control the pet population. Have your pet spayed or neutered."). In one of his first scenes, Barker will be interviewed by the character Liam Spencer (played by actor Scott Clifton). "Animals can't speak for themselves, they depend on us to protect »

"She Clucks or She Sucks" is a pretty simple game. Billy Eichner throws out a name, and you have to name whether it's a famous female chicken or a lame female celebrity by saying "she clucks" or "she sucks." But the prize Eichner gave a contestant for winning the game is so unthinkably hilarious that I actually spilled out of my chair laughing. Bob Barker never gave away anything as priceless as this. (Side note: I had the saaaame reaction about the contestant's Jessica Lange question. Watch "Blue Sky" sometime, loser!) »

Drew Carey isn't lacking for television jobs these days, but he's taking on an additional one anyway.
It's only for one night, though, and for a very specific occasion: April Fools' Day. The host of CBS' weekday game show staple "The Price Is Right" and Season 18 contestant on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" trades places with the host of CBS' "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" as the former "The Drew Carey Show" co-stars preside over each other's programs Tuesday (April 1).
The stunt is one that broadcast networks attempt every so often. A memorable instance was in 2003, when Katie Couric and Jay Leno swapped time periods on NBC for a day. Leno filled in for Couric in the co-anchor role she had then on "Today," while she assumed his place on "Tonight," opening monologue and all.
In the case of Carey and Ferguson, their skills might be a bit more evenly matched, »

About four years after dropping two long-running soap operas from its schedule, CBS Daytime seems to be clicking on all cylinders.
Its entire lineup — including more recent additions “The Talk” and “Let’s Make a Deal” — hit ratings milestones during the last week of January, lifting the network delivered to its largest audience for any frame in more than eight years, according to Nielsen data released Thursday.
Sudsers “The Young and the Restless” (5.73 million) and “The Bold and the Beautiful” (4.17 million) drew their largest audiences since February 2008 and April 2007, respectively — a time when the CBS Daytime lineup included soaps “As the World Turns” and “Guiding Light.” Top-rated “Y&R” also posted its highest score in three years among the core daytime demo of women 25-54 (2.3 rating/12 share).
“Guiding Light” exited the airwaves in September 2009 and “World” followed a year later, paving the way for chatfest “The Talk” and gameshow “Let’s Make a Deal, »
