Russell Brand, the British comedian and actor, condemned Sean Hannity’s coverage of the conflict between Israel and Gaza on his Fox show, calling him a kind of “terrorist.”

Russell Brand Calls Sean Hannity A 'Terrorist'

Brand reacted to Hannity’s segment, which the Fox personality introduced by asking, “Is America’s largest Muslim so-called civil rights activist showing sympathy to terrorists?,” on his YouTube series Trews

"One of the definitions of 'terrorist' is using intimidation to reach your goals," Brand said. "Who in that situation was behaving like a terrorist, using bullying, intimidation? Sean Hannity. That is where the terrorism is coming from."

"There’s no objective terrorism, there’s just different perspectives of violence,” the actor added. “No-one should be using violence, but if you’re going to judge violence pejoratively and negatively, and God knows we all should, then the people that are doing the most and »

At the end of the episode, Russell says, "One definition of terrorism is using intimidation to achieve your goals. Who in that situation was behaving like a terrorist? Using intimidation, bullying, being unreasonable: Sean Hannity."

31 July 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sean Hannity has fired back at “dumb and ignorant” comedian Russell Brand, who called Hannity ”childish,” “rude” and “unreasonable” a day earlier for screaming down a Palestinian-American guest while defending his position on the Gaza-Israel conflict. “Not funny… I feel so bad that Russell doesn't like my style of interviewing. Unfortunately, this out of work actor didn't stop at stylistic critiques,” Hannity said during a segment (above) on Wednesday before showing  a clip of Brand sympathizing with Hamas fighting tactics. ”Russell, if you're watching, and I'm sure you will, take a close look at your TV, because I need to educate you, »

A Night at the Cinema in 1914, 1914

Directed by George Nichols, Fred Evans, Joe Evans and Laurence Trimble.

Starring Charlie Chaplin, Roscoe Arbuckle, Peggy Pearce, Mabel Nomand, Florence Turner and Fred Evans.


Fourteen short films to recreate a night at the cinema in 1914. It includes comedies, adventure films, travelogues and newsreels

Some people claim they are part of the “YouTube generation”. This is a generation whereby they digest their news, entertainment and education through bite size, under 10-minute videos. There is a sense that these YouTubers are viewer’s whose attention span is short and if videos are too long, they simply switch off. Comparatively, cinema in 1914 seemed to be primarily made up of shorts and bulletins that were bite size and included comic celebrities to round-off the screening. Considering many mornings will start off with a short viewing of Russell Brand’s ‘The Trews’, a video from a friends »

'Breaking Bad' spin-off starring Val Kilmer and Slash hits Kickstarter

16 July 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

With each season of Breaking Bad, the show’s fan base grew, right up until showrunner Vince Gilligan decided that Walter White’s story had come to end after five seasons. But not everyone agreed with Gilligan’s choice. And as far as industry newcomer Larry Shepherd is concerned—spoiler!—Walt’s presumed death is not the final chapter of the story. And that’s exactly why he has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his own Breaking Bad spin-off titled Anastasia.

On the Anastasia Kickstarter page, Shepherd describes his series as picking up directly after Walter White’s collapse in the Breaking Bad finale, »

“I’ll Drink to That…”: Top 10 Alcoholic Movie Characters

15 July 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Alcoholism in the movies have been played for both dramatic and comical effect. In fact some of the binge drinking done on the big screen have garnered considerable praise and pathos resulting in many performers winning Oscars and Oscar nominations based on this very serious addiction.

The alcoholic in cinema is larger in life because it is a societal reflection of the demons and destruction that affect millions of people globally. Film allows for the liberty to use creative licenses to highlight the physical and psychological pain and false feelings of pleasure to convey the true face of alcoholism and its hold on fictional characterizations that are bound by the poisonous allure of the bottle. However heavy-handed or hearty it may seem in portraying the detached drinker or happy drunk one thing is for certain…the depth and dimensional range of the chronic cinema sipper has never disappointed in giving »

11 footy pundits to replace Alan Hansen on Match of the Day

14 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Despite uttering the infamous line "you can't win anything with kids", Alan Hansen went on to become one of the longest-running and most well-respected football pundits in the UK.

After 22 years, Hansen has appeared on his final edition of Match of the Day on BBC One, leaving Alan Shearer as the only regular pundit alongside Gary Lineker on the flagship football show.

With a place to fill, Digital Spy has selected 11 potential candidates to replace Hansen as the next full-time pundit from the 2014/15 season onwards.

1. Gary Neville

The BBC may be tempted to sensationally poach arguably the best pundit working today in Gary Neville. Sky are highly unlikely to let the older Neville leave, but he would bring a modern, technology-filled touch to proceedings. Despite only working on TV for a couple of seasons, he has already built a reputation as an intelligent expert, rather than just an ex-player saying a few words on screen. »

Kane’s 10 Most Disturbing WWE Relationships

14 July 2014 1:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Moreso a tremendous character actor in a pro wrestling ring than just another grappler on the World Wrestling Entertainment roster, Glen Jacobs’ near two-decade run as Kane in WWE has had more than its share of unusual moments. For the past 20 years, the way that the emotionally scarred brother of the walking undead Undertaker has related to both men and women on the roster has provided the most ridiculous, emotional, intriguing and always most gripping of moments.

For a ghastly pale seven foot tall man lacking eyebrows, Kane’s been in love more times than Elizabeth Taylor, married more times than Russell Brand, had more public meltdowns about romance than Rihanna, been more violent in and out of love than Chris Brown, and had more family strife than Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly Osbourne combined.

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.

Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs.  I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »

Andrew Rannells talks to Playbill about stepping into the shoes of Hedwig after Neil Patrick Harris finishes his run, and why audiences respond so well to the show. “I think she wants what we all want. She wants to be loved and to find love. I think it’s kind of as simple as that. She compromises a lot in the name of finding love… The journey that she goes on, at least in broad strokes, is pretty universal. Anybody who is searching for something better for themselves can relate to what she goes through. She wanted something better. She wanted to get out of East Berlin. She wanted something more, and the cost of that was very high for her.” Rannells also notes what we all suspected but hadn’t seen confirmed in an interview, »

Russell Brand is continuing to use his spare time to critique the media on YouTube, and concluded this week that Bill O'Reilly's entire argument against illegal immigration “is rubbish and based on bigotry.

Brand, who previously called the cable news network a “fanatic terrorist propagandist organization,” doesn't agree.

Russell Brand is blasting Fox News after host Jeanine Pirro recently went on a controversial rant about Iraq and the U.S's response to the growing threat of the Islamic militant group Isis within the country. On her show Justice With Judge Jeanine, the legal expert criticized President Barack Obama's decision to send several hundred military experts to Iraq and went so far as to label Iraq's neighboring country Iran "the devil."
