Rayanne of 'My So-Called Life' Is Now the Countess of Devon

26 August 2015 2:25 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Way to go, Rayanne! A.J. Langer, 41, is living out her own "Downton Abbey" fairy tale. The actress best known as Rayanne Graff on "My So-Called Life" is now the Countess of Devon and mistress of a 600-year-old, 4,000-acre British estate. We'd call that a so-called awesome life.

A.J. -- who also starred in "Baywatch," "The Wonder Years" and "Private Practice" -- met her husband, Charles Courtenay, in Las Vegas in 2002 and married him back in 2005. They are only in the news now because his father, the Earl of Devon, just passed away. That means Charles now has that title and A.J. (aka Allison Joy) is the Countess of Devon and their crib is Powderham Castle in Exeter, Devon, England. Not bad for a girl from Columbus, Ohio! Here are photos of the couple and their castle.

A.J. told Breezy Mama back in 2009 that she, Charles and their two children, »

Any Westallen scoop to help us survive The Flash‘s hiatus? –Kaz

Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

20 April 2015 7:49 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the producers of Dancing With the Stars were brainstorming the weekly themes for Season 20.

I totally understood the corporate cross-promotion of last week’s Disney theme, and the emotionally charged Most Memorable Year motif of the week before that. But I’m struggling to figure out the exact components that made up this week’s Spring Break theme, other than the obvious climb in temperature that we’ve seen since Punxsutawney Phil poked his head out in February and reminded us he’s useless.

Even though a handful of Monday’s routines revolved around beachy themes, »

What the Cast of 'The Breakfast Club' Looks Like Now

17 March 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Don’t you forget about Molly Ringwald. Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t!

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’ 1985 classic, The Breakfast Club, stars Ringwald and Ally Sheedy attended a special screening at SXSW (a digitally remastered version of the film will also be released in select theaters from March 26-31). Which seems like the perfect opportunity to find out what our favorite detention-goers look like three decades later:

Nicolas Cage Joins Edward Snowden Biopic

24 February 2015 1:52 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cathleen Allison/AP

An appearance from Nicolas Cage in a good film now seems as common as a unicorn sighting or finding a Freddo that’s still only 10p. Whilst we still await the other two occurrences with great anticipation, Deadline have revealed that Cage will be making a potential comeback, courtesy of the Edward Snowden biopic from Oliver Stone which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Based on Luke Harding’s book ’The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man’ and ‘Time of the Octopus’ by Anatoly Kucherena, Snowden will tell the story of the U.S. whistleblower who sought asylum in Russia after leaking classified files from the Nsa to the media in 2013. Levitt is set to star as the titular secret-spiller, whilst Cage is down to play a former U.S. Intelligence official.

Celebrate Love and The Breakfast Club's 30th Anniversary with These Valentines

13 February 2015 4:40 PM, PST | | See recent news »

There are plenty of films about the troubles and triumphs of love in the '80s teen movie canon. Say Anything taught dudes about the importance of grand romantic gestures. Sixteen Candles showed ladies that just being yourself is more than enough to land Jake Ryan. Ferris Bueller's Day Off taught both genders that life moves pretty fast, and we should all stop and look around with our best friends and significant others once in a while. But when we think about cinematic tales of teen romance, The Breakfast Club usually isn't the first movie to come to mind. Well, »

Pretty Little Liars season 5 episode 15 review: Over A Barrel

23 January 2015 1:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is Pretty Little Liars finally making bold moves and getting back on track? Latest episode, Over A Barrel indicates so...

This review contains spoilers.

5.15 Over A Barrel

The first rule of Pretty Little Liars is that, if the girls are 100 per cent, unequivocally sure of who's behind A's shenanigans, then the person in question is going to be completely innocent. In season 5b, this applies to Allison and Holbrook so, while neither character seems to be completely on the up and up, they aren't the omnipotent tormentors that the Liars are assuming they are.

But it's frustrating to watch, because the audience know this about the show by now, and there's nothing worse than a bunch of protagonists who don't know the rules of their own universe. Previously, it's been characters like Spencer and Caleb – the voices of reason – that balance it out, but even they appear to have taken crazy pills this season. »

Bill Cosby's Accusers: A Timeline of Alleged Sexual Assault Claims (Updated)

23 January 2015 12:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A firestorm of controversy surrounds comedian Bill Cosby after multiple allegations have surfaced claiming that he sexually assaulted numerous women, with alleged incidents dating as far back as 1969.

The 77-year-old is known around the world for his role as the lovable father Heathcliff Huxtable on the long-running sitcom The Cosby Show, and for having a stand-up comedy career that spans five decades. However, beginning in 2004, various claims of sexual assault and date rape began being leveled against Cosby.

News: Bill Cosby Alleged Rape Victim Speaks Out: 'Why Wasn't I Believed?'

Cosby has never been charged in any criminal case regarding any of these accusations, and through attorneys has repeatedly denied that any of the allegations are true. Cosby himself briefly addressed the claims, telling Florida Today, "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos."
