What were they thinking? The X Factor's most shocking exits, from Laura White to Ella Henderson

2 October 2015 2:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The X Factor knows how to create drama. From the blast of 'O Fortuna' as Simon Cowell and his buddies enter the stage, to former voiceover man Peter Dickson hamming it up, they've got the atmosphere nailed.

One of the most exciting elements of the show will always be the big Sunday night eliminations, especially if the dreaded Deadlock comes into play. Most of the time, the judges get it right, but sometimes there are downright shocks. Here are the biggest to date, brought to you in association with TalkTalk's new Bopheads app:

1. Laura White (series 5)

Wigan lass Laura was tipped for X Factor success in 2008's early stages, but found herself in a tough girls group with the public's favourite indie fairy Diana Vickers and future victor Alexandra Burke. Even so, no-one expected her to leave as early as the fifth week, especially with Ricky Gervais lookalike Daniel Evans still knocking around. »

13 Hilarious Mockumentary TV Shows

29 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

What’s more fun than unscripted television? Scripted “mockumentaries” that mimic docudramas, break the fourth wall, and bring us original characters and great performances. Here are 13 mockumentary television shows that should not be missed! “The Office”The original UK version of “The Office” debuted in 2001 and is largely credited with popularizing the mockumentary form. The BBC show also made a household name of star Ricky Gervais (who was a co-creator and co-writer), and made way for the wildly popular U.S. adaptation that ran for nine seasons on NBC and gave Steve Carell, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling and many others their breakout roles. The show’s single-camera format imitates a real-life documentary about office life, and deadpan on-camera interviews reveal characters’ true motivations, inner thoughts, and occasional shortcomings—with hilarious results. “Modern Family”This beloved ABC sitcom follows three “different, but related” Los Angeles families through the ups »

'Gotham' Season 2 Gets 'Looking' Star as Villain Eduardo Flamingo

26 September 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rise of the villains? Indeed. The very popular Fox drama Gotham is adding yet another iconic DC Comics villain to its already overflowing roster of classic bad guys. Eduardo Flamingo will be making his entrance on the show soon. And up and coming actor Ra&#250l Castillo is the man hired to bring this character to life.

Ra&#250l Castillo is best known for his role on the HBO dramatic comedy series Looking. He will make his debut as Eduardo Flamingo in the ninth episode of Gotham Season 2. In a town overtaken by corrupt and extremely dangerous lunatics, Eduardo emerges as one very dangerous hitman. Killing isn't just a job for this brut. No! It's a lifestyle.

Eduardo Flamingo will arrive in truly flamboyant style. He comes armed with a spiked chain. He also has a strong appetite for flesh. Weirdest of all, he likes to rock out to the Reverend Horton Heat, »

Gotham Season 2 Adds Looking Star As Batman Villain 'Eduardo Flamingo'

25 September 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Variety reveals that Looking alum Raul Castillo has joined the cast of Gotham season two as Eduardo Flamingo. The villain is set to first appear in episode nine, and is described by Fox as, "one of Gotham’s most dangerous hitmen. Killing for him isn’t just a job, it’s an art form. Armed with a spiked chain and an appetite for flesh, this rock-a-billy assassin will prove to be one of Detective Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) trickiest foes." Castillo has lined up a pretty high profile gig with Ricky Gervais' Netflix original movie Special Correspondents, and it's unclear whether he'll show up in just the one episode of Gotham or will reappear as Victor Zsasz has. Either way, you can see McKenzie tease the villain's arrival in a recent interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers below.  »

Jordan Peele Goes From Comedy To Horror, Will Write And Direct 'Get Out'

24 September 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Key & Peele" may be ending, but long live Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. The former has already been busy this year outside the sketch show with roles in "Pitch Perfect 2," "Vacation," and "Tomorrowland," while the latter popped up in a few episodes of "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp." And now, Peele is raising the game. The comic talent is going horror with "Get Out," which will not only serve up scares, but put them on a racially charged the backdrop. The movie, which Peele will write and direct, will kick off when an African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's family estate. And Peele thinks his movie will be a game changer. Read More: Watch A 1-Hour Comedy Roundtable With Ricky Gervais, Jordan Peele, And More “People know me for my work in comedy, but now I’ll get to focus on my passion for writing and directing horror films. »

Can you guess these celebrities as Peanuts characters?

23 September 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ever wanted to set foot into the world of Snoopy? Well now you can, Charlie Brown – thanks to the new Peanutize Me website website, created in advance of the new Peanuts movie due for release in the Us on November 6, and in the UK on December 21. And good grief, it's wonderful.

After professionally evaluating the site this morning – Ok, mucking about – we wanted to see what some of our favourite celebrities and fictional characters would look like in Charles M Schultz's famous world. Annoyingly, the game doesn't have a facial hair option, or a nose editor. But hey, it's not meant to be The Sims, right?

Have a go at guessing our creations below:

1. The little red-haired girl singer might get you 'Thinking Out Loud'

2. This rapper and his celebrity wife are 'Bound 2' cause a ruckus in Peanuts land

3. Brown. Charlie Brown.

4. Bazinga!

5. And on that bombshell...

6. Sigh... this »

After hitting the big screen in recent years, starring alongside such big-name stars as Jason Segal, Amy Adams, Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and others, the Muppets are heading back to the small screen where it all began.

ABC's new comedy stars all of our favorite Muppets, including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, The Great Gonzo, Pepe the King Prawn, Beaker, Animal, the Swedish Chef and everybody else, including a brand-new Muppet named Denise. There's a lot of characters who show up on The Muppets, either as part of the main storylines or in the background, but you can never have enough Muppets, am I right?

20 September 2015 9:36 PM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »
