This Is What the Teen Choice Awards Looked Like in 2006

5 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Life in Hollywood looked a heck of a lot different at the 2006 Teen Choice Awards! Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook hosted the awards show that year, fresh off the heels of their comedy Employee of the Month. Simpson and Nick Lachey had announced their divorce about a year beforehand, but both attended the event and turned it into an "awkward" experience for everyone involved. Lachey took home the award for Choice Love Song for "What's Left of Me," a song about the demise of his marriage, and gave an uncomfortable acceptance speech given his ex-wife was the host. "I just want to start off by saying...awkward?" he said, smiling. "A little bit!" What's strange in hindsight »

21 July 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pegged for premiere in the early stages of 2016, San Diego Comic-Con has brought forth an evocative new teaser poster for American Gods, the upcoming drama series adapted from Neil Gaiman’s award-winning books of the same name.

Hatched by Bryan Fuller and Michel Green, American Gods will make its bow with a 10-episode run on Starz, heralding a truly star-studded lineup of Hollywood talent that recently carved out space for actor-cum-comedian Dane Cook.

He’ll play Robbie, a close ally to Shadow Moon as they attempt to navigate the seemingly all-consuming war between gods old and new. Ricky Whittle is the actor attached to Moon, flanked by X-Files stalwart Gillian Anderson, Emily Browning, Yetide Badaki, Cloris Leachman, Ian McShane, Pablo Schreiber, Peter Stormare, Crispin Glover and Orlando Jones.

American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel. »

Following photos of various god characters, now we've finally scored a look at the protagonist Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) and his wife Laura (Emily Browning) in a first photo of the two characters in Starz's upcoming "American Gods" series.

American Gods Adds Dane Cook To Its Stellar Cast

20 July 2016 3:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Starz announced its episodic adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel, American Gods, it seemed like an epic undertaking. The project is now underway with an astonishing cast, however, and the latest addition is comedian and actor, Dane Cook. He will apparently feature in each of the 10 episodes, making this a significant role for him within a high profile series.

It’s a fantasy story, with tinges of great mystery, and centres on a world in which the old, traditional gods are in conflict with their new, modern counterparts.

American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel. The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, »

Preparing for potential first lady Melania Trump’s speech on the opening night of the Republican National Convention, a small, silly, snarky part of me was hoping she’d use the primetime exposure to promote the “timepieces and fashion jewelry” she sells at MelaniaTrump.com. #MakeAmericaElegantAgain

Power Season 3 Premiere Recap: A Ghost By Any Other Name

17 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Just when Ghost thought he was out…

Power‘s Season 3 premiere finds the drug kingpin-turned-nightclub owner in the process of trying to go legit — but all the tailored suits and law enforcement girlfriends in the world can’t cover the fact that no matter how much James St. Patrick wants to be on the up-and-up, his Ghost persona runs (and rolls) deep.

So the hour finds James continually looking over his shoulder — after all, that araña card didn’t just leave itself — and fielding angry/confused/hurt inquiries from the people who used to look to him to lead. Read »

First look at Technical Boy in American Gods, Dane Cook joins the cast

17 July 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly continues its huge Comic-Con preview with the release of the first official image of Bruce Langley as Technical Boy from Starz’s hotly-anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

“We needed to establish a frame of reference for the aesthetic of the Technical Boy, and [director] David Slade, I believe, was the first one to say ‘Commodore 64,’” states Bryan Fuller. “That will mean more to the audience once they understand more of the Technical Boy’s story — why the Commodore 64 and that era of technology is so informative for the look of him and the story and the general aesthetic when we first sample his world.”

Nevermind Jamie and Angela: The true heartbreak in Power‘s upcoming third season belongs to best-friends-turned-enemies Ghost and Tommy.

“Part of the journey of the characters this season is about finding their relationship in a new place,” showrunner Courtney Kemp tells TVLine during a set visit in February. The Starz drama is filming on location at a diner in New York’s Meatpacking District; earlier, as Kemp watched a scene play out from behind a video monitor in a darkened corner of the eatery, two characters had a very frosty, very brief conversation that abruptly ended with one of them »

With production well underway on the ten-episode first season of Starz's "American Gods," a new photo has been released by the network and FremantleMedia North America through EW and shows off a first look at actor Bruce Langley as Technical Boy.

Based on the Neil Gaiman novel, the story follows a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society's modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.

Technical Boy is one of those newer ones and feeds off of humanity's devotion to the internet. Showrunner Bryan Fuller talked about coming up with the look of the character:
