While we're still eagerly waiting for Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux to tie the knot, there's no denying that 2013 has still been a big year for the blond beauty. Not only did she chop off her locks and debut a dramatic new 'do, but the 44-year-old also made it big at the box office with her comedy flick We're the Millers, which debuted at No. 2 and raked in $26 million during its opening weekend. In addition to the success of the film, Aniston got into the best shape of her life for the Rawson Marshall Thurber-directed flick, which also starred Jason Sudeikis and Emma Roberts, going on a super-strict diet and baring her bangin' bod on the big screen in nothing but a bra and »
Ouch! That was certainly our first reaction when we saw Chris Pine looking a little worse for wear in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Thankfully, though, the sight of the 33-year-old star looking all beat up was just the result of a little Hollywood makeup magic. (Phew.) It turns out Pine was simply shooting a scene for Horrible Bosses 2, the upcoming sequel to the very successful 2011 comedy. Pine will be sharing the screen with returning cast members Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey. Christoph Waltz has also signed on to be in the flick. Horrible Bosses 2 is slated to be released on Nov. 26, 2014. Fortunately, we »
Deceptively marketed as a breezy romantic comedy, Drinking Buddies would be more aptly described as a movie about the complexities and compromises of relationships, the little things that are instrumental in making partnerships work. Credit writer-director Joe Swanberg for giving his strong cast the freedom to explore the weighty ideas his film’s simple set-up brings bubbling to the surface, like infidelity, loneliness and immaturity.
As Drinking Buddies opens, we think we know where it’s headed. The flighty, frivolous Kate (Olivia Wilde) works in a Chicago brewery with Luke (Jake Johnson), her emotional equal in every way. They get through the daily grind by immaturely drinking, flirting and reveling in the potent will-they-won’t-they chemistry that they’ve constructed almost effortlessly. The only problem: both are already in relationships. Luke is on the verge of marrying Jill (Anna Kendrick), his attentive and gracious girlfriend of six years, while Kate »

This week, parody perfection reached its peak and the word Kanye-oke was born thanks to the James Franco and Seth Rogen "Bound 3 (Vague)" video, a not-so-vague shot-for-shot redo of Kanye West's new music video featuring his topless fiancé Kim Kardashian. In the now infamous parody, Franco's flapping shirt is flawless - and we can't even find the right words for Seth Rogen's back-arching skills - but one thing made this video pure magic and that's the bromance. Freaks and Geeks fans know that Franco and Rogen go way back; this faux-sexy spoof is just another chapter in their epic love. »

Bushmill's isn't the only whiskey brand attempting to promote male bonding via YouTube. Chivas Regal has teamed up with the Esquire Network for a 12-part series titled 'Brotherhood' about what it means to be a modern man with modern man friends. The first episode features four friends who have gone on to different professions. There's a chef, a designer, a musician, an artist, and one big-name entertainer: Jason Sudeikis. While he receives equal screen time to his fellows, Sudeikis brings a certain star power to the project. After watching the pilot, I'm still unsure what the whole point is. Brotherhood seems honest (especially for a branded series), but the format doesn't convince me that I should care about the spotlighted group of bros. Perhaps Sudeikis fans will enjoy a look inside the life of the SNL cast member, but even might be better off watching the other branded video Sudeikis recently starred in. »

You never know what comedies are going to break through. Where studios now mostly rely on brand names and franchises to have hits, comedies -- though usually stacked with name players – are that much trickier, even if they’re hilarious. We’re the Millers was one of this summer’s biggest surprise hits, and after watching both the theatrical and extended cut, it’s easy to see why. The film, which stars Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston, is consistently funny. My review of the Blu-ray follows after the jump. Sudeikis plays David Clark, a pot dealer who’s doing well until he helps neighbor Kenny (David Poulter) stop some thugs from beating up street girl Casey (Emma Roberts). Instead of attacking Casey, Kenny lets slip that David’s a drug dealer, and so they take all of David’s money and drugs. Then his boss Brad Nerdlinger (Ed Helms) contacts »

Will Forte uses the word "lucky" a lot to describe himself, but the Saturday Night Live alum (2002-10) has spent this year proving his talent and versatility. The 43-year-old had small roles in two hit comedies in 2013 (Grown Ups 2 and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2), but his most buzzed-about performance is his surprising dramatic turn in a little black-and-white movie, Alexander Payne's Nebraska. He plays David Grant, a frustrated middle-aged man who, hoping to bond with his cranky dad, Woody (Bruce Dern), agrees to drive the »
Three mega-box office demolishing comedies later, and it's hard to imagine anyone but Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms heading up The Hangover's Wolf Pack. But in an exclusive clip from The Hangover Part III Blu-ray, we're shown a tantalising glimpse at what could have been, with Horrible Bosses star Jason Sudeikis auditioning for the role of Alan (tongue very much in cheek). And not only that, but the clip's even introduced by a special guest star. Over to you, Mr Chow... The Hangover Part III is available on Blu-ray...

Tmi alert: Did we really need to know that? Just as we didn't need to know Robin Thicke's penis size or what music he and wife Paula Patton get active to, so we could have gone on with life not knowing Olivia Wilde and fiancé Jason Sudeikis "have sex like Kenyan marathon runners." But we admit, we love it when celebrities share too much about their private lives; they're people too, you know! That got us thinking, which other celebrities have shared just a little too much about their intimate lives to the media? Turns out, the famous aren't shy about their sex lives, and this includes Sexist Man Alive Adam Levine, Zoe Saldana, Cameron Diaz, Angelina »

During his Nov. 19 ‘Real or Magic’ special, David Blaine performed his most insane feat yet — he rendered Kanye West speechless! David performed some pretty nasty tricks for the likes of Kanye, Jaden Smith, Olivia Wilde and Aaron Paul, and their mixed reactions were absolutely priceless.
David Blaine, 40, has been freaking out the nation since 1997, but none of his signature specials have garnered a response quite like Nov. 19′s David Blaine: Real or Magic. David performed tricks for his celebrity pals with everything from a deck of cards to an ice pick, and it’s safe to say that most of them were astonished. Read below for details!

Thankfully, David Blaine: Real or Magic, the latest TV special from the magician and endurance artist, stayed away from entombing, freezing, or electrocuting Blaine in favor of letting him show off his impressive magic skills. Some of Blaine's audiences were impromptu street crowds, but many were celebrities: their presence both demonstrates the circles he travels in and serves as implicit validation that what we're seeing isn't the product of camera trickery — surely Lenny Kravitz and Will Arnett have better things to do with their time than serve as David Blaine's stooges? »
Need to smuggle a huge (and I mean huge) stash of pot into America? No problem. Just do what Jason Sudeikis’ character does in Rawson Marshall Thurber’s “We’re the Millers” and hire yourself a family. Who pays attention to a regular American family just passing between the Mexican-American border? As expected, nothing quite goes as planned, cause if they did — well, there wouldn’t be a movie, right? That’s what happens in “We’re the Millers”, now available on DVD and Blu-ray. David Burke (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. After his stash and his cash are stolen, leaving him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms), he must become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, »

If I can be completely honest for a second, I’ll see anything Jason Sudeikis participates in. Seriously. I personally think he’s one of the funniest actors in the game right now, and while every movie he’s in may not be a huge success (Movie 43), he’s an actor who can consistently and effortlessly make you laugh through many different types of comedic roles. We’re The Millers not only pairs him with a wonderful little cast featuring the still smoking Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn and Ed Helms, but it lets Jason play two very different characters. The question was simple though – could this mainstream comedy be a fun identity-swapping romp, or would the story delve into mindless silliness?
We’re The Millers is funny. It succeeds at being a movie that will generate laughter amongst its viewers, and for that »

Los Angeles — Paramount brought out some artillery on behalf of "Nebraska" star Will Forte Sunday afternoon as the actor's fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum Jason Sudeikis moderated a post-screening Q&A with the Best Supporting Actor hopeful for a capacity audience filled with mostly Screen Actors Guild members. The discussion covered a lot of ground but often came back around to the notion of stripping away affect in favor of "being," as opposed to outwardly "performing," as well as boring down into the truth of what Bob Nelson's script, and certainly Alexander Payne's direction of the cast, is trying to get »

Jennifer Aniston headed into an La spa this afternoon wearing a scarf and sweater and showing off her newly cropped hair. She debuted the dramatic style change earlier this month after her friend and hairstylist Chris McMillan "just chopped it all off." Jennifer was also sporting her new ear piercing, which she revealed in an Instagram photo posted by makeup artist Gucci Westman two weeks ago. There's been a lot of change for Jennifer lately, but she'll get back to the familiar soon, since filming for the Horrible Bosses sequel is getting started in La. Jennifer is reprising her role as the raunchy dentist Julia Harris, D.D.S. and will reunite with costars Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman. The comedy will also see Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine joining the cast. »
