Real-Life SpongeBob and Patrick Are Terrifying

18 June 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

You want to see something really scary? We're not talking your garden variety slasher or giant monster from space. This creature lurks in the depths of the ocean. In fact, you could say he lives in a pineapple under the sea. Yes, it's SpongeBob SquarePants. Though, not quite like you've ever seen him before.

3D artist Miguel Vasquez has decided to infiltrate our nightmares with his own take on the iconic cartoon from Nickelodeon. And he's bringing his pal Patrick Starfish with him. It's hard to say which character is more terrifying when they get the real world treatment. But you wouldn't want to come across either one of these monstrosities getting ripped and loaded on ice cream sundaes at your local Fossleman's.

These images are part of Vasquez's 'Best Friends Forever' project. He rendered the speed sculpts in Keyshot. As you can see, they are not for kids or the faint of heart. »

Remembering Adam West: The Original Batman

13 June 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Although I’ve long been a fan of Adam West, it’s always been in the same context that I’ve long been a fan of Betty White: mostly because of the obsessive, internet-age cult of personality surrounding the man in his final days.  Although it’s sat idle on my watchlist for longer than I’d care to admit, I’ve never actually seen the 1966 Batman TV series.  Sure, I’ve seen a few isolated clips from the show – not to mention the unironically excellent Return of the Caped Crusaders movie – but never as much as a single episode from start to finish.

Adam Scott Comedy ‘Ghosted’ Gets Series Order, Will Shoot in L.A.

5 June 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

An “X-Files”-style comedy? It’s not too good to be true, and it will be shooting in Los Angeles! “Ghosted,” which stars “Parks & Recreation” favorite Adam Scott and perpetual scene-stealer Craig Robinson, has received a series order from Fox. One of this past pilot season’s hottest commodities, the single-camera project comes courtesy of writer Tom Gormican (“That Awkward Moment”), and will depict Scott as a “true believer” of the paranormal and Robinson, his skeptical counterpart, recruited by the Bureau Underground to investigate “unexplained” events happening in L.A., which may pose a threat to the human race. Greenstein/Daniel Casting, credited with casting TV Land’s Betty White-starrer “Hot in Cleveland,” is heading up casting duties. Both Scott and Robinson will pull double duty as executive producers, along with Gormican, Mark Schulman, Oly Obst, as well as showrunner Kevin Etten (“Workaholics,” “Scrubs”).   On the studio front is 20th Century Fox TV, »

10 Best TV Shows to Watch in June: Killer Cars, Putin Speaks and More

31 May 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's a strange month for TV, a sort of negative zone after the networks wrap up their big-ticket programming and before they launch their summer favorites. (Game of Thrones doesn't come back until July, so we can all chill, if not Netflix-and-chill, for another few weeks.) While a few favorites will make their long-awaited returns this month – good to see you again, Preacher! How ya been, Orphan Black? – there's no better time to investigate something new and/or more unusual. Say, a Florida noir touched up with ridiculous humor, or »

TV Ratings: 'SNL' Approaches Finale With No. 2 Telecast of a Sterling Season

14 May 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

NBC continues to reap the benefits of Saturday Night Live's sterling year. The penultimate episode of the season, its third consecutive outing to air live on both coasts, already ranks as the No. 2 episode of the season.

Live tune-in surged for SNL, averaging 10.4 million viewers late Saturday night. That makes it the show's best since Alec Baldwin hosted in February and its best May episode since the storied Betty White special in 2010. Melissa McCarthy's latest turn as host bore equally ripe fruits in the younger demo of adults 18-49. Its tentative 2.7 rating in the key demo »

Betty White’s Poker Face is What Life is All About

I think it’s safe to say that whenever Betty White surfaces for any reason whatsoever it’s mandatory that you share it assuming you own any kind of entertainment site.  White’s actually been trending a lot on Twitter lately which makes fans kind of nervous.   Nervous because she’s 95 and all of her fans want her to live forever.  People are extremely karmic and no one wants to mess with Betty White’s flow.   I too hope that White lives well into her 100s because she’s such a treasure. Last night she stopped by the Late Late Show with James Corden where

4 May 2017 7:40 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Terry Crews has personal experience with racial profiling.

After tackling the topic in a powerful episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Tuesday, the 48-year-old actor sat down with Hip Hollywood to open up about a racially motivated run-in that he had with police, back in his NFL days.

"I was a pulled off a flight by the police in front of everybody," Crews said before explaining that cops assumed he was a drug dealer, "simply because I paid for my ticket with cash."

Once Crews told the officers that he was an NFL player, he said, they asked for his autograph.

The humiliating experience left Crews wondering what could’ve happened if he hadn't been a professional athlete.

"I could not believe what I was experiencing," he continued. "It was really strange, walking back on the airplane. Everyone was like ‘What is wrong with this guy?' But all »

Betty White's Reason For Never Remarrying After Her Husband's Death Is Truly Beautiful

23 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Betty White has fit a whole lot of life into her 95 years, and she's still going strong. The star is a Hollywood icon, with roles in The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show among her most popular. But of all her successes, the actress credits her marriage to Allen Ludden as her favorite. Betty, who was previously married to Us Army pilot Dick Barker in 1945 and Hollywood agent Lane Allen from 1947 until 1949, met her third husband when she appeared as a guest on his game show, Password, in 1961. Ludden actually proposed to Betty twice before she finally accepted and the two were married in 1963. Ludden tragically passed away from stomach cancer in 1981 (Betty was 59 years old at the time), and she has never remarried. When asked if she would ever consider tying the knot again during an interview with Larry King, Betty said, "Once you've had the best, »
