Amy Poehler on hosting Golden Globes with Tina Fey: '2015 is the end'

17 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Amy Poehler has suggested that she and Tina Fey will not return to host the Golden Globe Awards beyond the 2015 ceremony.

The actress and her former SNL co-star reached a deal with NBC in October 2013 to host both the 2014 and 2015 galas from Los Angeles.

Speaking on NBC's Today, Poehler said that January's awards show will mark the end of her and Fey's tenure.

"It's law of diminishing returns, which is why this is our last time," she insisted. "Unless you want to be a perennial host, there's nowhere to go but down."

The Parks and Recreation actress later joked: "It will be like our farewell tour. We'll be like the Jay Z of the Globes and never retire."

Poehler and Fey boosted the ratings of the Golden Globe Awards to a ten-year high with January's ceremony.

They have followed in the footsteps of previous three-time host Ricky Gervais.

The Rise And Rise Of Steve Carell

29 October 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

From regional manager in NBC’s The Office to the evil turned good supervillain in the Despicable Me franchise, Steve Carell has carved a career as one of Hollywood’s best loved funny men.

To celebrate the release of his new family film, Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,  which is in cinemas now, we take a look at the rise and rise of Steve Carell.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004 and 2013)

One of Carell’s first leading roles was starring alongside Will Ferrell in the 1970s set cult hit Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Carell played curiously dim witted weatherman Brick Tamland alongside Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy, and the film went on to gross $90.6 million worldwide. Following its success and cult following, a sequel entitled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and starring Carell was released in 2013.

David Hasselhoff on new Dave sitcom: 'Kumars meets Curb Your Enthusiasm'

24 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

David Hasselhoff has teased his upcoming new sitcom on Dave.

The Baywatch star will play a fictionalised version of himself in the new comedy series Hoff the Record.

"It's a fun and wacky show," he told Digital Spy. "I want to say it's The Kumars meets Curb Your Enthusiasm.

"It's really funny and goofy, but also intelligent. It's a real send-up. [In the show] I have five wives and I find out my son was actually born on the Berlin Wall the night it came down. It's just non-stop jokes."

Hasselhoff revealed that he had a very similar idea for the show before a team of producers invited him to a meeting.

"The funny part about this, was that I was approached by Me & You Productions who did The Ricky Gervais Show, and they pitched this show to me, the exact show I had in my head, on paper!

"I said, 'Guys, I've already got this, »

Is There a Half-Naked O-Town Feud Brewing?

21 October 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's a boy band battle ... or is it?!O-Town star Erik-Michael Estrada took to Twitter on Tuesday to encourage men to get checked for testicular cancer, but he also seemed to throw some shade at former bandmate Ashley Parker Angel at the same time. "Support the cause. But what ever you do don't look at my abs. Or how low under wear is. Or my junk," he captioned his shirtless selfie. In the pic, the teen heartthrob is posing for a picture in the mirror, wearing only a low-slung pair of striped boxer briefs.  Seems innocent enough, until you see the photo Ashley also recently tweeted out (above right).Angel shared a similar shirtless snapshot last week, but he took it one step further and grabbed his bulge. "#FeelingNuts for Check One Two raising awareness for testicular cancer. Don’t forget to check yours," he captioned the pic. The #FeelingNuts »

2 Posters for Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb

16 October 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has released two posters for Ben Stiller's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. I never would have thought that a movie like this would actually get a decent movie poster design. I'm sure the first poster above looks familiar as it is inspired by Dutch artist M.C. Escher's "Relativity" art. Most of the posters we've seen for this franchise have been painfully generic, like the second poster that you see below. 

Get ready for the wildest and most adventure-filled Night at the Museum ever as Larry (Stiller) spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.

The movie also stars the late Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Dan Stevens, Rebel Wilson, and Ben Kingsley. It's set to open in theaters on December 19th.

13 times Neil Patrick Harris proved he is the ultimate Oscars host

16 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After hosting the Emmys twice, the Tonys four times, the Spike Video Game Awards, Saturday Night Live and even the Disney Parks Christmas Parade, Neil Patrick Harris has landed the 2015 Oscars gig.

To mark the thespian's appointment, here are a collection of career highlights which show why Nph is the perfect Academy Awards host.

1. Showstopping opening numbers

A Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show wouldn't be complete without several large scale musical numbers, but the opening piece is the biggest spectacle. When Nph is hosting a show, his performances are often the most memorable moments the next day.

He finds a perfect blend of mickey-taking and adoration about the subjects he is singing about, and his timing is impeccable. If the Academy wants someone who is safe, yet cheeky, Nph is perfect.

2. Playing the ultimate diva

If you want an example of flamboyant stage presence, just watch him in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, »

'The Simpsons' Pay Tribute to Yusuf Islam

13 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

From Homerpalooza to Paul McCartney's visit, there have been countless musical moments on The Simpsons during its 26 seasons, and on its 550th episode, the long-running animated series paid tribute to Cat Stevens' landmark 1970 album Tea for the Tillerman during its episode-opening couch gag. In the minute-long bit, we see idyllic scenes of Springfield – modeled after Stevens' own album artwork – as the singer's "Tea for the Tillerman" soundtracks the action.

Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris are #FeelingNuts.

Wondering why Tom Hiddleston, star of Thor and the Internet’s favorite boyfriend, took this selfie? Besides to gift the world with more adorableness? He did it to help children in need.

Tom is taking part in Unicef’s #WakeUpCall campaign to raise awareness for child refugees in Syria (according to Unicef, there are currently 6.5 million) and raise money for humanitarian aid.

Robert De Niro Roasted at Friars Club Gala

8 October 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was not meant to be a roast, but there was certainly some ribbing happening at the Friars Foundation’s annual gala honoring Robert De Niro and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim on Oct. 7 at the recently sold Waldorf Astoria.

A parade of industryites appeared in-person and via video including David O. Russell, Sharon Stone, Christopher Walken, Martin Scorsese, Orlando Bloom, Billy Crystal, Barbra Streisand and Don Rickles. All paid tribute to thesp, who received the Friars Club’s fifth-ever Icon Award.

Sting, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin also serenaded De Niro and Slim, who took home the Icon Award for Philanthropy. Warren Buffett, in a pre-recorded video alongside Paul Anka, sang a rendition of “My Way” to Slim.

As the event’s emcee, Larry King (Friars’ Dean) attempted to keep the crowd — full of old men and their model/drag queen dates — in check by “shushing” the room several times. »

Speaking to Sky News Entertainment Week, Crook said he was fascinated to see the new movie, but doubted he would have any involvement whatsoever. Nobodys been in touch and I really dont think they will, he said. But I am fascinated to see it.
