Meet Gotham’s Alfred Pennyworth

24 March 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fox continues it’s rollout of images from its upcoming TV show Gotham. The show will be set in Batman universe, with a host of DC characters showing up. We’ll have a young Bruce Wayne, Penguin, Joker, Selina Kyle, and more. Last week we got glimpses of Kyle ad Bullock- she, by the way, reminds me of a young Julie Newmar, which is pretty awesome.

And today, we get to meet Gotham‘s Alfred Pennyworth! Played by Sean Pertwee, this Alfred is described as “a tough-as-nails ex-marine from East London who has loyally served the Waynes. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he’s fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne.”

Here he is:

So it looks like they’ll be using the Alfred depicted in certain comic book continuities that is way more than just your average butler. Even Michael Caine’s Alfred from the Nolan trilogy, »

'John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown' preview: Fighting 'fugly' Patrick Swayze in drag

22 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Looking back on his colorful life thus far for laughs, John Leguizamo's "Ghetto Klown" is packed to the gills with stories about the actor's early life in Queens and his eventual stardom.

One such story in the special, a filmed version of his 2011 one-man Broadway show premiering on HBO on Saturday (March 22), finds Leguizamo recounting a dust-up with Patrick Swayze on the set of the campy drag classic "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar."

In the Nsfw preview clip above, Leguizamo hilariously retells the incident that led to a brawl between the two actors -- who were dressed in their character's drag at the time. It creates quite an amusing image, to say the least.

"John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown" premieres on Saturday, March 22 at 10 p.m. Et/Pt on HBO. »

22 January 2014 7:52 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

They’re going to have to make a difficult decision with the pricing on the release of Batman on DVD – do they go high and run the risk of people choosing not to buy it, or go low and maximize sales?

The Wild Wild West had 104 episodes, and its box set list price is 100 bucks (and used to be a lot higher), but currently discounted to $50.  That’s 96 cents an episode, 48 discounted.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was 105 episodes, and its box set lists at Two hundred dollars, currently discounted to $140.  or $1.90 / 75¢ an episode.

Conan O'Brien, whose show Conan is shot on the Warner Bros. lot, announced today that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the original 1966 Batman series on DVD later this year. Take a look at the late-night talk show host's tweet, which includes a photo of him with the original Batmobile.

Very excited @WBHomeEnt is releasing the Batman '66 Complete TV Series in 2014! The seat smells like Adam West: http://t.co/cqWjlpW1Gn

Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) January 15, 2014

Although it isn't the most conventional way to announce a highly-anticipated DVD set like this, Conan O'Brien does have somewhat of a history with the legendary franchise. He lent his voice to talk show host David Endocrine in the animated adventure Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 last year.

The original Batman series spanned 120 episodes over three seasons from 1966 to 1968, starring Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin. The series »

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon: All 51 Miss Golden Globes Are Five Degrees (or Less) from Sosie Bacon

11 January 2014 7:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sosie Bacon may only be 21, but she has a lot going for her. On top of being 2014's Miss Golden Globe, through her father Kevin Bacon, she is connected to nearly everyone in Hollywood - including every other previous Miss Golden Globe, most of whom are also the daughters (or sons) of industry power players. And while some have a connection through their famous parents, others, such as Laura Dern (who happens to have famous parents), are also connected through their own work. Don't believe us? Here's how you get from young Ms. Bacon to all of her famous predecessors, »

Jared Leto’s Rayon Joins Our Favorite Leading Men Who Cross-Dressed Into Our Hearts

2 January 2014 9:14 AM, PST | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

As HIV-positive transvestite Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto has exploded back onto the acting scene, earning tons of awards-season buzz. We here at VH1 aren’t really in the business of heaping high-minded kudos on thespians — we just like to watch others do so — but we do want to add the Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman to a prestigious list we just made up: Our favorite roles played by men in drag.

This is a controversial ranking, we’re aware. Whither the cast of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert? Don’t the late Patrick Swayze’s gorgeous cheekbones in To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar warrant a mention? Well, sorry, these are our favorites, and we went for the dudes who made us laugh in White Chicks, Tootsie, Back to the Future Part II and, naturally, Mrs. Doubtfire, by doing much more than »
