Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are both beloved comediennes on their own, but when their powers combine, the result is truly magic. Now, the dynamic duo may be set to appear in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” in what one can only assume will be the greatest cameos ever. The Film Stage has a blurry photo of Fey and Poehler's backs from the set of the film, and while it's unclear what roles they will play, it's fun to speculate. They teamed up in January to host the Golden Globes; maybe they'll appear as hosts of a news program that rivals Ron Burgundy's? That sure-to-be-brilliant bit of casting follows a slew of other confirmed appearances in the follow-up to 2004's “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” Kristen Wiig, Greg Kinnear, and Nicole Kidman are among the many stars that have been added to the sprawling cast, and Harrison Ford was confirmed »

Lindsay Lohan has a few more confessions from a broken heart.
Before — finally – checking herself into court-mandated rehab for 90 days, Lindsay Lohan sat down with Piers Morgan for a Q&A just published in the U.K.’s Daily Mail. There’s nothing fans or critics haven’t heard before about how or why her life got so off track (she hits on sad but well-worn topics such as her dad selling a recording of her complaining about her mom, the stolen necklace she says was a misunderstanding, and how everyone — even court judges — “believe the rumors”), but it is »

The 83-year-old broadcast journalist didn't show up to Saturday's gathering, explaining that the event "has changed" due to the invitation of celebrity guests, the New York Post reported.
"It's why some of us didn't go this year, because it's got movie stars," the New York Post quoted her as saying on 'The View.'
She said that people used to see other members of the administration, other politicians, but it has become more and more about the celebs at the table.
The TV personality said that the dinner used to be a wonderful opportunity. »

Los Angeles, April 29: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohal is apparently upset with journalist Tom Brokaw for saying that she ruined last year's White House Correspondent's dinner.
Brokaw refused to attend the gala this week, claiming LiLo ruined it for him simply by showing up last year.
Tmz.com reports that sources close to LiLo said: "LL (Lohan) isn't particularly bothered by negative comments, but does feel the newsman is publicly picking on her for no good reason and that's just plain mean."
If invited again, LiLo would be happy to go. She had a great time last year as Greta Van Susteren's guest and everyone was. »

This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner will be hosted by talk show funny man Conan O'Brien. As usual, the stars will be out in full force, with celebrities living the dinner tables of various news outlets.
Recently, veteran newsman Tom Brokaw thinks that the some celebrities who are invited to the dinners make a mockery of the event. The final straw for him was Lindsay Lohan attending the 2012 dinner. "She became a big star at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Give me a break," Brokaw says.
No Lohan scheduled for this year, but the names of those appearing cover the spectrum of television and film. The cast of "Modern Family," along with two stars from the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" are among the highlights.
The full list of celebrity guests at the White House Correspondents' Dinner is below:
Was it the Republican Party, Fox News' Greta Van Sustren or troubled Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan who ruined the White House correspondents dinner for NBC anchor Tom Brokaw? Shockingly, it's not the Republican Party in fact, Brokaw lightly criticized President Barack Obama for his ineffective leadership and trying to demonize the Republican Party recently before unloading on his peers over their annual over-the-top bash dubbed the White House correspondents dinner that now includes Hollywood celebrities and even reality TV stars. The NBC's anchor's latest criticism about the White House correspondents' dinner was over Lindsay Lohan and Brokaw not being able to understand why Lindsay was ever allowed to attend an event to celebrate the DC press. It's not like Lindsay crashed the party (though she has been accused of that a few times in Hollywood and New York) Lohan was invited by Fox News talking head Greta Van Susteren. So »

Tom Brokaw sat out the last White House Correspondents Association Dinner, and he plans to do it again in 2013. The veteran newsman says the increasing tabloid level go the invited guests is what ruined it for him. "For me the breaking point was Lindsay Lohan," Brokaw tells Politico. "She became a big star at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Give me a break."
The former "NBC Nightly News" anchor says the annual dinner must leave home viewers wondering, "'That's the Washington press corps?' I mean, there was more dignity at my daughter's junior prom than there is, what I'm seeing on C-span here."
Brokaw, a charter member of the Association, famously criticized the increasing spectacle of the dinner during a roundtable on "Meet the Press" in May 2012. He says the reason he felt the need to speak up is a concern for how the Beltway press is viewed.
Tom Brokaw isn't mincing words. The NBC news anchor criticized the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner last year after he saw that the guest list included Lindsay Lohan. "The breaking point for me was Lindsay Lohan," he said in an interview with Politico. "She became a big star at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Give me a break." Yikes! Lohan attended last year's dinner as a guest of Fox News's Greta Van Susteren and made major headlines around Washington D.C. Brokaw chose to opt out of the 2012 dinner last May and cited Lohan as only one of the few reasons he stayed home. The veteran journalist also said that the event »

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a classy event, y’all. And that means that certain celebrities simply shouldn’t be allowed to attend.
At least that’s how Tom Brokaw feels. And with tomorrow’s 2013 dinner looming overhead, the newsman told Politico what he doesn’t want to see at the event, or rather who he doesn’t want to see. According to Brokaw, celebrity guests are a key ingredient in the evening. And when it comes to picking and choosing those classy celebrities, Brokaw has strict guidelines that look a little something like this: The 1975 cast of SNL »

Lindsay Lohan Destroyed any shred of dignity the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner had left ... and now it's nothing more than a joke ... this according to Tom Brokaw. The legendary newsman blasted the dinner during an interview with Politico -- saying the standards for the once-respected event have fallen so low, his daughter's junior prom has more dignity.

A year after Tom Brokaw criticized the White House Correspondents' Association dinner and its related social events as being too "glittering" and suggested it could be worsening the public's impression of journalists, the dinner returns Saturday night and based on the heavy Hollywood attendance expected, it's coming back with no diminished luster. As Conan O'Brien readies for a second performance as host of the festivities, oft called the "Nerd Ball," this year's guest list includes Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Nicole Kidman, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd and Michael »

For the last couple of hours, I’ve been watching Scott Pelley provide sober, restrained, extraordinarily smooth coverage of the bomb blasts that occurred at today’s Boston Marathon.
Yet the CBS News coverage has also highlighted the unavoidable challenges, and pitfalls, associated with extended coverage of this sort of event, where anchors have more time to fill than new information, and are forced to rely on the same handful of images, replayed on what amounts to a continuous loop.
Pelley, to his credit, kept repeating — over and over again — what was known, and what wasn’t. There was no wild speculation, no jumping to conclusions, nothing to instill panic. It took some time before he would officially label the incident terrorism, later calling it “an act of terrorism, by whom we do not know.”

Robert Redford is a man known around Hollywood for doing his own thing, marching to the beat of his own drum so to say, and he’s continued that mentality with his brand new movie The Company You Keep.
Detailing the life of a former Weather Underground activist who is on the run from the FBI, Redford’s newest directorial effort is just as intelligently crafted as usual, paying proper attention to historical details and opinions, and Redford also delivers a now typical fantastic performance serving as the film’s lead character.
I had the opportunity to catch up with Robert for a roundtable interview in New York City while he was promoting The Company You Keep, and it was an honor to sit and listen to true cinematic royalty.
We talked to Robert about his film as much as possible, but we also learned a thing or two along the way. »
