11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?

24 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »

The Most Awkward Adult Celeb Appearances on Kid Shows

23 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

Popular kid shows like Sesame Street, Yo Gabba Gabba!, and Spongebob Squarepants aren’t always just for kids. Grown-ups have been known to not only tune in to the children’s-friendly programming (hey, some of them are really good!), but even appear on said shows. While stars like Jon Hamm, Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman , and Amy Poehler made the best of their time and had some seriously awesome cameos, other celebrities haven’t made quite the same impression. We’ve compiled the seven most awkward, inappropriate, or downright strange appearances by adults on kid shows.

Larry David Did His Larry David Thing on Hannah Montana

Prettttt-ay, prettttt-ay, pretttttt-ay bizarre.

Won’t somebody think of the children?! Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold” duet with Elmo enraged parents who complained that the clip showed too much of the pop star’s cleavage. »

Amy Poehler Brings Laughter and Love to Worldwide Orphans

23 January 2015 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For Amy Poehler, helping orphaned children in Haiti was a bit like improv. "Children are not that interested in the future or past," the actress, 43, explains to People. "They really are about the present moment, so that's an easy connection to improv." Poehler visited Haiti in 2012 with her friend Dr. Jane Aronson, founder of the Worldwide Orphan Foundation. "[Dr. Aronson and I] met all these exciting young people working to help even younger people. I was really inspired by how little it takes to change the course of someone’s life and help people take care of themselves—which is what Wwo is about, »

Parks And Recreation Review: “William Henry Harrison/Leslie & Ron” (Season 7, Episode 3&4)

21 January 2015 5:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A big question coming out of the seventh season Parks and Recreation premiere last week was how long the show was going to tease out the mystery behind Leslie and Ron’s big spat over something called “Morningstar.” Not terribly long, it turns out, as this week’s second episode of the two-parter pretty much centralizes its plot around discovering every minute detail of what went wrong all those years ago. In nearly all aspects – jokes, ridiculous plot lines, Amy Poehler’s bangs – it felt like a truer return to form for the series than the premiere ever was.

William Henry Harrison” opens with Leslie searching for a cause to back her attempts in preserving the land that Ron wants to build a Gryzzl campus on. This, in classic Parks and Recreation fashion, spans from listening to a creepy returning character pitch an over-sexualized version of Disneyland to a guy »

Parks and Recreation Spoils Game of Thrones - Sort Of

21 January 2015 8:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Parks and Recreation has seen into Game of Thrones's future, and the outlook is bleak. On Tuesday's episode, Ben (Adam Scott) locked Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ron (Nick Offerman) into a room to sort out their differences.Leslie, however, insisted that she simply couldn't be locked in a room overnight, because Game of Thrones was on that night. "It's the series finale - Khaleesi is marrying Jack Sparrow!" she tried to reason, before admitting, "Oh God, that show has really gone off the rails." "Look, it makes sense if you've read the books," an exasperated Ben responded. http://ilanawexler. »

Regina George Is the Only ‘Mean Girls’ Character Who Could Make ‘Fetch’ Happen

21 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

Look, we know what you’re thinking. Regina George is life ruiner. She ruins people’s lives. In the words of the scorned and rightfully pissed-off Janis Ian, “Regina George is not sweet. She’s a scum-sucking road whore.” We’re completely aware that she is the villain of the 2004 classic, infinitely re-quotable comedy Mean Girls, but as Damian so profoundly put it, “She’s fabulous, but she’s evil.” Rachel McAdams‘ Regina George definitely isn’t the most likable character to ever hit the big screen, but she’s the best part of a movie that’s filled with so many memorable characters. No, really.

Here are our 10 reasons why we pick Regina George, in all of her fabulously evil glory, as the best thing about Mean Girls.

She’s played by Rachel McAdams

It’s not just the fact that Regina George is played flawlessly by the beautiful and talented McAdams, »

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'William Henry Harrison/Leslie & Ron'

20 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's two "Parks and Recreation" episodes coming up just as soon as we binge watch the future... When NBC announced the plan to double-pump these remaining episodes, in an attempt to get the show off its schedule as quickly as possible(*), many of you were irked by it. And while I'd like to stretch out the experience of watching "Parks and Rec" for as long as possible, the scheduling has worked out really well for these first two weeks. "2017" and "Ron and Jammy" made a good pairing — the first with a lot of exposition about the time jump, the second a throwback episode providing a last hurrah for one of the show's best villains in Tammy 2. "William Henry Harrison," of course, ends with a cliffhanger, and the scheduling allows us to see it paid off right away in "Leslie and Ron." (*) Ironically, the premiere ratings were much »

Bill Cosby Receives Standing Ovation in Denver After Largest Protest Yet

19 January 2015 5:47 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Bill Cosby received a standing ovation during a comedy show in Denver over the weekend, but outside the venue attorney Gloria Allred was leading the biggest public protest to date against the comedian in light of the sexual assault allegations brought against him.

News: A Timeline of Bill Cosby's Accusers

About 1,800 fans who came to watch Cosby were met with blaring horns from protesters, but Allred was faced with a wall of police when she tried to cross the entrance to the Buell Theatre.

"That is one of the most low, dirty tricks - the most transparently obvious restriction of free speech that I have ever seen," Allred told Et.

Cosby has never been charged with sexual assault, despite allegations from more than 15 women claiming they were drugged and assaulted by him.

The latest accusation is from model Chloe Goins, who claims Cosby assaulted her in Beverly Hills in 2008. Cosby's attorney issued a statement to Et, saying »

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars

The Performer | Amy Poehler

The Show | Parks and Recreation

The Episodes | “2017”/”Ron and Jammy”

The Airdate | January 13, 2015

The Performance | In the first two episodes of Parks‘ final season, Leslie finds herself going up against friend-turned-foe Ron Swanson. The problem? Ron’s competing against Leslie to obtain a whole lotta land. The other problem? Leslie has no money to offer the (already) wealthy Newports, making her chances of outbidding Ron fairly microscopic.

While this major wrinkle in Leslie’s professional life had us pitying Poehler’s alter ego, we were thrilled to »

Parks and Recreation fans, here’s a fun fact for you: Jim O’Heir, who portrays Jerry/Gary/Larry/Terry on the beloved NBC comedy, initially auditioned for the role of Ron Swanson.

Chris Pratt has seen his film career explode during his run on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” But leaving the sitcom was never an option, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star assured.

“I would never f—— leave this show,” Pratt said Friday during NBC’s portion of the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

“I’ve been doing this business for 15 years. I realize the things that really matter … are the relationships you have while you’re doing them. I could hope that I could have the good fortune of finding another group of people like this, but I don’t expect I ever will,” he said.
