5 Celebrities with Unusual Hobbies

27 July 2016 10:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Source: ign.com

Although most of us are judged by what we do for a living, our hobbies can sometimes be even more revealing about who we are and what we stand for. This is particularly true of public figures – while we often catch a very edited glimpse of our favorite celebrities on social media, the field or the silver screen, finding about what they enjoy doing in their downtime can give us completely different insights into their personalities. And these five celebrities have pastimes that might come as a particular surprise.

Twin Peaks Pegged For Summer 2017 Premiere, David Lynch Reportedly Helmed All 18 Episodes

26 July 2016 3:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cast your mind back to October of 2014, a time when the largely dormant Twin Peaks fanbase was sent into a collective tailspin upon hearing news that the cult classic would return via limited series.

Fast forward five months and change and the abrupt departure of series creator David Lynch threatened to throw a spanner in the works, after the prestigious filmmaker bowed out of the small-screen revival citing “complications.” That all came to a head in the weeks thereafter and, thankfully, Lynch was back on board.

Whether said complication proved to be a storm in a tea cup is something we’ll likely never know, but the one thing we do know for sure is that Twin Peaks is coming back in 2017 and, according to Ray Wise, is being aligned for a summer premiere over at Showtime.

Word comes by of the Sdcc panel for Batman: The Killing Joke, where »

Nick Harley Jul 22, 2016

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions will produce a new untitled comedy with help from Paramount pictures.

Paramount and Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions are teaming up for a new untitled FBI comedy.

Coming from a script by Lauryn Kahn (I’m In Love With the DJ), the project is said to revolve around two co-ed FBI agents forced to go undercover as a married couple to infiltrate the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and reveal a sweat shop conspiracy. Sounds like Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Zoolander

Behind the camera will be Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates director Jake Szymanski.  Szymanski got his start creating Funny or Die material for Ferrell and McKay, while Kahn started as McKay’s assistant. Gary Sanchez Productions seems to be keeping it in the family.

There's a 30% Chance You Already Love Amanda Seyfried's Nostalgic Throwback Snap

7 July 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Tbt! 13 years ago I shot my first scene in my first movie. I'm back in Toronto with some of the same fine folks who helped me through it. #imamouseduh A photo posted by Amanda Seyfried (@mingey) on Jul 7, 2016 at 7:27am Pdt On this fine Throwback Thursday, Amanda Seyfried is bringing us all the way back to 2003, when she filmed her very first movie. You might have heard of it; it's called Mean Girls, and it's loaded with sage fashion advice, quite a few bad b*tch moments, and, of course, the lovably ditzy Karen Smith. In her nostalgic snap, Seyfried calls back to not one but two of her character's most iconic quotes. The picture, of course, depicts her burgeoning career as a weather woman - where she puts her "Espn" (and weather-sensitive breasts) to good use. The best part, though, is her expert use of a hashtag: "#imamouseduh. »

[Review] Fathers and Daughters

7 July 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The works of director Gabriele Muccino aren’t for everyone. I can’t speak on his Italian films, but the American ones are unavoidably cloying and sentimental in a way that must be accepted or ignored to find resonance. Despite being the one showered with praise, The Pursuit of Happyness didn’t quite do enough for me. I appreciated the story and performances, but felt the artifice. For Seven Pounds, however, I didn’t care. The entire film proved one giant manipulative contrivance yet it unexpectedly hit me with depth and power just the same. So when the opportunity to watch his latest Fathers and Daughters arrived, I was optimistic. It looked ripe for that same emotional catharsis and as such possessed the potential to also crash and burn magnificently.

It’s reality lies somewhere in the middle. Brad Desch‘s script is everything that detractors say it is, but »
