Interview: L.J. McKanas talks 'Survivor: Cagayan'

7 hours ago

Lj McKanas has been a marked man from the start of this "Survivor: Cagayan" season. As the Old Man of the Beauty tribe -- He's 34 -- Lj was selected as his tribe's leader within minutes and he wore that target on his chest for his entire time on a tribe he wouldn't have selected for himself (he self-identified as "Brawn" before the season, but showed his Brains in finding a hidden Idol). After the Tribal shuffle, Lj's "Survivor" time seemed even shorter, as it appeared that the Brawn majority in his new clan would burn through the remaining Beauty outsiders. In a shocker, though, Lj aligned with Trish and took advantage of her anti-Cliff paranoia to remain in the game.  And even after the Merge, Lj's alliance looked like it might be in jeopardy, but Kass' flip made Lj and Tony the two Alpha Males suddenly »

Review: 'Hannibal' - 'Su-Zakana'

8 hours ago

A review of tonight's "Hannibal" coming up just as soon as I prefer sins of omission to outright lies... After such an eventful, crazy, borderline apocalyptic stretch of episodes like we've had the last few weeks, it was inevitable and probably necessary that Bryan Fuller would have to ease back on the throttle a bit. The recent pace wasn't sustainable, even in a 13-episode series, unless the plan was for the show to end this year(*). (*) To sum up the various talking points: 1)The ratings remain terrible, and lower than "Dracula" was doing in this timeslot earlier in the season; 2)"Hannibal" doesn't cost NBC nearly as much as a drama like "Parenthood" or "The Blacklist" because of the partnership with Gaumont, and therefore the ratings are less relevant than with a traditional bubble show, but 3)"Dracula" is also an international co-production, 4)The critical buzz on "Hannibal" (versus the complete lack »

'Salem' review: Everything old is newish again in premiere episode

9 hours ago

There are many striking things about Salem (premieres Sun. April 20 at 10:00 p.m. on Wgn). There is a surplus of gross and gory stuff, plenty of Puritans, and some of the most anachronistic dialogue I've ever heard in a period drama. Apparently the writers decided that the best way to capture the olde time speake of the 17th century is in cliches like "you can't keep a good man down," "he's a chip off the old block,"  "he fights like a girl" and my favorite, "I call bullshit!" Yes, someone really says "I call bullshit," I kid thee not. Of course, it doesn't help that every actor (and, by extension, every character) seems to be operating on the belief he or she is in an entirely different project than the one they're in. As John Alden, Shane West ("Nikita") swaggers through Salem with plenty of snappy one-liners and an »

Miley Cyrus postpones her entire U.S. tour due to illness from allergic reaction

10 hours ago

New York (AP) — Miley Cyrus is postponing her U.S. tour while she recovers from an allergic reaction to antibiotics, but will resume her performances in August. Cyrus' representative tells The Associated Press on Friday that the singer will resume the U.S. tour Aug. 1 in Uniondale, N.Y. The new dates will include seven rescheduled shows and two additional stops. The European leg of the tour is still scheduled to kick off May 2 in Amsterdam. Cyrus' rep says the singer suffered from a sinus infection last week during her "Bangerz" tour and had "an extreme allergic reaction" to the antibiotic cephalexin on Tuesday. Cyrus canceled several shows this week as a result. Existing tickets for the 21-year-old singer's U.S. tour will be honored at the new date. Copyright © 2014 The Associated Press.

DreamWorks primes 'Bob's Burgers' writers for 'Hot Stuff' film

11 hours ago

(Cbr) The classic Harvey Comics character Hot Stuff the Little Devil is making his way toward the big screen. Heat Vision reports DreamWorks Animation has hired sisters Wendy and Lizzie Molyneux, best known for their work on Bob’s Burgers, to write the project, which is rumored to be a live-action/CG hybrid. Created in 1957 by cartoonist Warren Kremer ("Richie Rich", "Stumbo the Giant"), Hot Stuff is a mischievous red demon child who wears a diaper and carries a magical sentient pitchfork. He sometimes performs good deeds, to the annoyance of his fellow devils. DreamWorks acquired Hot Stuff and the other Harvey characters — Richie Rich, Wendy the Good Little Witch, Casper the Friendly Ghost, etc. — when it purchased Classic Media in 2012. »

Hayden Panettiere as surprised as the rest of us by 'Heroes' revival

12 hours ago

(Cbr) NBC in February trumpeted a 2015 revival of "Heroes" as an “event miniseries,” the network teased the involvement of creator Tim Kring and the possible return of some of the original cast. The announcement came as a surprise not only to the sci-fi drama’s fans and detractors, but also at least one of its stars. “Well, it was a shock to me, and, in fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin,” Hayden Panettiere, who played cheerleader Claire Bennet for all four seasons of the series, tells Cosmopolitan. “She sent me a text message and told me about it, and, I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.” Planned as a 13-episode standalone story arc, details of "Heroes Reborn" are, in the network’s words, “shrouded in secrecy.” However, the presumption, by Panettiere and others, »

This Insane Mexican Soap Opera Is Your New God

12 hours ago

Thank you, Jezebel, for this unbelievable, unthinkable clip from a Mexican soap opera that is so bracing and intense, you can't look away. Because you're paralyzed and about to die. You die today.  Lord on a wheel, it's good. In case you haven't been keeping up with the convoluted plot of "Maria la del Barrio," let me update you: This woman is straight-up killing a room full of people. Hope you're not in a wheelchair, because you will certainly tumble out of it. And when she finds the scissors, make sure to grab your 3-D glasses. Comin' atcha.  »

'Ask Drew' #2 is coming next week and now's the time for you to submit your questions

12 hours ago

There was an aptly timed e-mail from a reader in my inbox today. One simple question. "When is the next episode of 'Ask Drew'?" We'll be taping the episode on April 22nd. After that, we'll be going to a bi-weekly format. We'll be playing with the length of the episodes as well until we find the sweet spot, and we appreciate all of the feedback you guys gave us on the first one. Obviously, now is the time to send your questions, and while I relish the feeling of re-living high school-era humiliations for you from time to time, I would encourage you to think big. For example, see that "Airwolf" picture at the top of this story? You could ask me about the "Airwolf" story. Everyone loves a good "Airwolf" story, don't they? I've worked in Los Angeles in and around the film and theater community for 24 years now, »

Will Cannes 2014 kick off the Oscar season for Bennett Miller, Mike Leigh and others?

12 hours ago

Ever since the Cannes International Film Festival knocked down a few walls between itself and the West in 2001 with festival director Thierry Frémaux coming on board to liven up the Croisette with more of a Hollywood acceptance, the connection between the annual May event and the awards season has become more pronounced. Films like Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge!," Roman Polanski's "The Pianist," Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River," Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Babel" and David Cronenberg's "A History of Violence" all started their Oscar trajectories in the south of France, while others like Paul Greengrass' "United 93," Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Midnight in Paris" and Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" got high profile beginnings out of Competition. A coveted Palme d'Or win sometimes leads to a significant boost in the Oscar season, even if no recipient of the festival's »

Here's 'Captain Middle America,' The 'Nebraska' Parody You Didn't Ask For

12 hours ago

What if one day your dad woke up and thought he was a superhero meant to save the world? And what if you couldn't convince him otherwise? That's the problem James Rogers is having. When his retired father becomes convinced he's the Steve Rogers of lore, it's up to James to play along and save his dad from himself. With a cameo cast of kind of recognizable to 'are you serious that looks nothing like him' impersonators, 'Captain Middle America' is the 'Nebraska' parody you didn't know you wanted until now. »

Potential Spoilers For Whedon's 'In Your Eyes' Have Been Online For Years

13 hours ago

It's here, it's here! All across the land today Whedonites rejoiced! The latest offering from our benevolent leader, 'In Your Eyes' released the first three minutes on Entertainment Weekly ahead of the film's premiere at the Tribeca this weekend. Still without a release date, Whedon and company are probably hoping to drum up interest so the movie doesn't languish in distributor purgatory like 'Cabin In The Woods' did.   'In Your Eyes' tells the story of two WWII era people who grow up with a unique and mysterious metaphysical bond which allows them to see through each other's eyes while one of them is asleep. It starts at childhood and blossoms into a love story as both try to balance having a life and being intimately connected with another human being on the other side of the country world during a deadly war on which they are opposing sides… »

Jaime Pressly on 'A Haunted House 2' and her Emmy Injury

13 hours ago

Jaime Pressly won an Emmy for her work on "My Name is Earl," but her career in outlandish comedy didn't begin or end there. The actress who riled us with her sendup of "Bring It On" in "Not Another Teen Movie" and her comic chops in "I Love You, Man" is now playing Marlon Wayans' wife -- God help her -- in "A Haunted House 2." We caught up with Pressly to discuss the movie's legitimate, ridiculous scares and the time she almost impaled herself on her Emmy. »

Exclusive clip: He shouldn't have put a ring on it on 'My Five Wives'

14 hours ago

If "My Five Wives" (Sundays at 10:00 p.m. on TLC) has taught us anything, it's that juggling a lot of wives is not the fabulous harem of fun non-polygamists might believe it is. In an exclusive clip from this week's episode, Brady realizes he's in trouble when third wife Rosemary and second wife Robyn sit down to have a "safe talk" with him. In Brady's world, safe talks usually mean tears and accusations. Fun, fun, fun! There's more drama in this episode, as fifth wife Rhonda waits for her test results. This might be one of the upsides to having a mess of wives, in that the sister wives come together to support her. And, if the news is bad, you know they're always close enough to bring soup.  Would you want multiple wives? Or husbands?    »

The 9 Scariest Moments of the New One Direction Video

14 hours ago

One Direction, the boy band with at least two members who look like 10-year-old Jodie Foster, are back with a moody new ballad and video called "You And I." I assume it's about how sad they are to be lifting song titles from Lady Gaga. But honestly, watch this video. It's going for something. A feeling? I'm not sure, but it's weird and scary. Bizarre. And now, here are nine times it terrified me. 1. Niall's contemplation Oh, acting. I did not know acting would be making a cameo in this video. Niall kicks off this party by looking around in a sort-of-contemplative-but-mostly-dumbfounded way, and the camera pulls back to reveal he is dressed like Edie Sedgwick shopping at Zara. Mmm, moodz.  2. That First Morph. Imagine if you looked down for a second, looked up, and suddenly you were a bearded person with too many feelings. That happened to Niall Horan today. »

Interview: Lee Brice on Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, and Bruno Mars

15 hours ago

Lee Brice first came to prominence as writer of such country hits as Tim McGraw’s “Still,”  “Crazy Girl” for Eli Young Band, and Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory,” the first song to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, so it may have seemed a bit strange to see him up on stage at the Academy of Country Music Awards two weeks ago as his massive hit, “I Drive Your Truck” —a tune he didn't write— snagged song of the year honors.  But give him credit for knowing a hit when he hears it. From the first listen, he related to the story of honoring and re-connecting with a lost loved one (in this case a fallen soldier). Even now, as Brice told us, the poignant song still touches him.  He also spoke about “I Don’t Dance,” the first single from his forthcoming third »

'Sinister' sequel hires 'Citadel' director Ciaran Foy to steer the series

15 hours ago

Horror franchises are difficult to get right, and it's a built-in problem that seems hard to avoid. Much of what works on us in a great horror movie is fear of the unknown, dread that the filmmaker carefully cultivates. When you end up making a sequel to a horror film, you are automatically dealing with a known quantity, and the more often you return to a movie monster, the more you familiarize it to the audience, and the less effective it becomes. At this point, I have a hard time imagining anyone being afraid of Freddy Kruger, and if you look at the way they handled him over the run of the film series, the solution that the filmmakers embraced was to make him more and more comedy-driven, robbing him of whatever ability to scare he had in his initial appearance. It's happened with plenty of characters over time. Scott Derrickson directed the first "Sinister, »

'Saturday Night Live' sets 40th anniversary celebration for February 2015

16 hours ago

You thought that maybe "Saturday Night Live" was going to ignore its 40th birthday? NBC announced on Friday (April 18) that "Saturday Night Live" will celebrate its Ruby Anniversary next February with a three-hour orgy of clips, guests and back-patting.  Set for Sunday, February 15, 2015, the "Saturday Night Live" anniversary special will feature past and present cast members, as well as musical guests from the show's lengthy run. NBC will milk many months of coverage for the special by parsing out announcements over the next several months. One thing we can say for sure? Generallissimo Francisco Franco will not be there. He's still dead. “‘Saturday Night Live’ is an institution unlike anything else in television history,” blurbs Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “The many brilliant ‘Not Ready for Primetime Players’ over the years is a who’s who of film and television comedy for the last two generations.

Exclusive clip: 'Naked and Afraid' meets Sabrina the witch, no joke

16 hours ago

Sadly, the season finale of "Naked and Afraid" is upon us (Sun. April 20 at 10:00 p.m. Et on Discovery), but before it goes we get to spend a little time with Sabrina the witch. I'm not even kidding. The woman's name is Sabrina, and she's a witch. And she's naked, but you knew that. In this exclusive clip, Sabrina admits she's a witch to her partner Vince. Vince seems a little surprised, but he doesn't really care. As he explains, she can believe in UFOs or anything else, because what really matters is their mutual survival. Maybe a lot more people need to be dropped in the middle of nowhere with nothing other than a machete.  Are you tuning in to the season finale of "Naked and Afraid"? Would you ever consider going on this show? »

Future and Kanye West hit the beach in new ‘I Won’ video

17 hours ago

In anticipation of his sophomore album “Honest” coming out next week (April 22),  Future has released the new video for his single, "I Won," which features Kanye West. Watch it below, plus listen to Future’s new song with Outkast’s Andre 3000 and stream the entire album via iTunes. The Hype Williams-directed video for "I Won" keeps it simple with Future and West rapping about their “trophy” relationships on a picturesque beach. A few beautiful women pose in bathing suits on the sand, but none are Future and West’s real-life muses, Ciara and Kim Kardashian. Future also just dropped his collaboration with fellow Atlanta rapper Andre 3000, “Benz Friends (Whatchutola),” which isn’t included on the streaming version of “Honest.” The song pairs old-school beats and soul samples with Andre’s vicious flow and Future purring about women and materialism.  »
