1 hour ago

We have just learned that none other than Wonder Years Star and Big Bang Theory guest Danica McKellar will be a judge during the 2016 Miss America competition. “The Miss America Organization shares my passion for the advancement of women in the Stem fields and celebrates smart, strong women,” McKellar said in a statement. “I am proud to be part of the show and an organization that is such a huge advocate for education.” The former child star, bestselling author and math genius is a strong advocate for education and has used her books to teach math concepts but also to empower in people the idea that being smart is also being sexy. Speaking of sexy, McKellar recently showed off her dance skills on the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars.

007 Author Anthony Horowitz Says Idris Elba is “Too Street” To Play James Bond

1 hour ago

Something tells me that Anthony Horowitz is going to be in the news a lot today.   After much speculation about Idris Elba potentially being the next man to play James Bond, the 007 author himself had this to say:  “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.” All we can say is “ouch.”  Too street?  Too racist is more like it.  And the man even tries to protect himself by saying “it’s not a color issue.”  Frankly that makes the statement even more racist.  Idris Elba is one of the coolest dudes around and I honestly couldn’t think of a better Bond. »

Jimmy Kimmel Proves How Kanye West and Donald Trump Have a Lot in Common

2 hours ago

As everyone already knows, Kanye West ended his 12-minute long VMAs acceptance speech on Sunday night by stating that he plans to run for president in 2020. However, what some people might not have realized when listening to his speech is that, in many way, the Grammy Award-winning rapper actually sounded a lot like a presidential candidate that’s already running in the 2016 election, a candidate that has dominated coverage on news channels and entertainment websites everywhere. I’m talking about Donald Trump, of course, and last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night show host pointed out the very striking (and mostly very funny) similarities between West and Trump. While their political stances would more than likely not match up, the two biggest things that Kanye and “The Donald” have in common are their massive egos and their flair for the dramatic. And even though we know it would be impossible… »

So You Think You Can Dance: Top Four Finalists Revealed

3 hours ago

The competition is continuing to heat up as we are nearing the end of what has been a pretty explosive twelfth season of So You Think You Can Dance. Last night, Cat Deely announced the four finalists that are moving one step closer to being named America’s Favorite Dancer and winning the grand prize of $250,000, the cover of Dance Spirit magazine, and the chance to dance with Jennifer Lopez at her upcoming Las Vegas residency at The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort. The top four ended up being Gaby Diaz and Hailee Payne (as the top two Stage finalists) and Virgil Gadson and Jana “Jaja” Vakova (as the top two Street finalists). Team Stage finalist Jim Nowakowski and Team Street finalist Megan “Megz” Alfonso were eliminated from the competition.

Castle Season 8 Promo: “Everything You Think You Know Is About to Change”

3 hours ago

Change is certainly in the air in the first promo for Castle Season 8. Kate has a new job, Rick has a new partner, and according to the trailer’s voice-over, that’s just the beginning of it all, as it tells us that “everything you think you know is about to change.” And all of those changes that are occurring aren’t only on the screen but off, as Castle has Terrance Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley taking over for David Amann as showrunner this season. Additionally, Penny Johnson Jerald, who played Captain Victoria Gates, is no longer on the show, while Toks Olagundoye (who we get a few glimpses of in this promo) is a new series regular, playing security specialist Hayley Shipton. There’s no doubt that this is a different type of Castle than what viewers were given in Season 7, but what remains to be seen is »

NBC Cancels Coach Revival Series

10 hours ago

Looks like NBC is keeping Coach retired. Numerous news outlets have confirmed that the Peacock’s planned revival of the 1990s comedy series, which starred Craig T. Nelson, has been cancelled. The new series, which was expected to debut at some point at midseason on NBC, would have served as a continuation of the original series, with Nelson’s Hayden Fox being brought out of retirement to be an assistant coach to his now adult son, Tim. In the revival, Tim was starting up a new football team at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania and taking on the role of the team’s head coach. The Coach revival was given a straight-to-series order by NBC back in March, with 13 episode set to be made. However, only a pilot of the series was filmed before the show continued production. Reportedly, disappointed reactions to the pilot, along with creative issues behind-the-scenes of the series, »

Jane the Virgin Season 2: Kesha to Play Jane’s New Neighbor

13 hours ago

Jane the Virgin is adding another major pop star to its guest cast this season. After having announced that Britney Spears will be playing herself (well, a version of herself that happens to be Rogelio’s longtime nemesis) in an upcoming Season 2 episode, The CW revealed late on Monday that Kesha has also booked a guest role in Jane‘s second season. Unlike Spears, however, Kesha will not be playing a fictitious version of herself. Instead, the singer will be taking on the role of Annabelle, “a rocker who moves next door to Jane and isn’t exactly a ‘baby person.'” Kesha will appear in the second episode of Jane the Virgin Season 2. “We are so thrilled Kesha will be appearing on Jane!” said Jane the Virgin executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman in a statement. We are all huge fans of hers, and we are so excited to welcome »

Arrow’s Stephen Amell Says He Will Run for Canadian Prime Minister If Kanye West Runs for President

19 hours ago

“You have failed this…country?” Could Stephen Amell be changing his signature line from Arrow? If he becomes the next Prime Minister of Canada, he may just have to. Responding to Kanye West’s memorable acceptance speech at last night’s Video Music Awards on MTV, in which the rapper said that he was going to campaign to become President of the United States in 2020, Amell joked on Twitter earlier today that if West kept to his word, that he would then run for Canadian Prime Minister. Check out the tweet for yourself below, which, at this time, already has over 4,000 retweets and more than 7,000 favorites (perhaps the Canadian people really do want Prime Minister Amell). If Kanye runs for President, I’ll run for Prime Minister of Canada. — Stephen Amell (@amellywood) August 31, 2015 While it’s obvious that Amell was just making a joke, it’s still fun to imagine what… »

The Flash Casts Tony Todd as Season 2 Villain Zoom

20 hours ago

Since San Diego Comic-Con, it has been speculated heavily who was going to be playing Zoom on The CW’s hit series The Flash for its second season, and even though there have been casting announcements for several new characters in the past weeks, we hadn’t heard about who will be playing Zoom…until today. Variety broke the news that Candyman actor Tony Todd will be voicing the terrifying Zoom, and that the actor will be making his debut in this season’s second episode, titled “Flash of Two Worlds,” which is a nod to the famous comic issue where Jay Garrick and Barry Allen come together for the first time. While Todd will be the voice of Zoom, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Variety that the identity of who will be under that mask will be a big mystery in Season 2. “Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice, »

New Longmire Season 4 Trailer: Walt Won’t Back Down

31 August 2015 9:45 AM, PDT

We’re getting closer and closer to the release of Longmire Season 4 on Netflix, and if you’re feeling impatient or upset, trust me: you’ve got nothing on how angry Walt looks in this new trailer. Similar to the sneak peek and trailer that were released a couple of weeks ago, this latest trailer for Longmire Season 4 shows Walt as a man hellbent on revenge, who won’t back down for any reason, even when his friends and family plead for him to do so. And while Walt’s determination for vengeance might cause some major problems for the characters on the show, it certainly won’t be any problem for us to enjoy the exciting drama that should come out of all the craziness. Longmire stars Robert Taylor as Sheriff Walt Longmire, Katee Sackhoff as Victoria ‘Vic’ Moretti, Bailey Chase as Branch Connally, Lou Diamond Phillips as Henry Standing Bear, »

The O.C. Musical Gave Us a Mini Cast Reunion Last Night

31 August 2015 7:40 AM, PDT

It’s been more than 12 years since The O.C. back in August 2003, but it still remains a beloved series and, in many people’s opinions, one of the best (if not the best) teen drama of all-time. Due in no small part to the show’s overwhelming fan base, The O.C. became the latest popular project, following in the footsteps of Cruel Intentions, to have its own unauthorized musical, and the performance of said musical happened last night at The Montalban Theater in Hollywood, California. And while there were some incredible renditions of the show’s most memorable musical moments (be sure to watch the video of “Hallelujah” posted below), we’re most grateful that the musical was able to bring together some the show’s stars and writers for a mini reunion. As shown in the photograph above, The O.C. stars Rachel Bilson and Autumn Reeser (who was actually in the musical, »

Jensen Ackles Sings “Simple Man” Live for Supernatural Fans at VanCon

31 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT

Serious question here: Is there anything Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles can’t do? The actor, who has starred on the hit CW series since it premiered back in 2005, has become well-known for his musical performances at many of Supernatural‘s conventions over the years, but he may have taken it to a whole new level this weekend at VanCon. During the convention for Supernatural fans, which took place in Vancouver over the weekend, Ackles hopped on stage to sing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man, and he wasn’t alone. Joining Ackles during his rendition of the song was his current costar Mark Sheppard, who played drums, and Supernatural alumni Richard Speight Jr. and Rob Benedict, who both played guitar. As we mentioned before, this isn’t Ackles first time performing live in front of Supernatural fans. In fact, it’s pretty much become tradition that he’ll sing at least »

Kanye West Says He’s Running for President in Insane Acceptance Speech at the VMAs

31 August 2015 5:55 AM, PDT

Kanye West for president in 2020? The rapper, who is infamous for making odd and, many times, controversial comments, took the stage to accept the Video Vanguard Award (essentially MTV’s version of a lifetime achievement award) on Sunday night, and as expected, it was interesting. After being presented with the award by Taylor Swift, who West famously went on stage and interrupted after she won Best Female Video of the Year in 2009, West soaked in the cheers of the crowd for a few minutes before speaking. He delivered a speech that touched upon his guilt over the incident with Swift four years ago, how he has supported and advocated for artists in the industry throughout his career, and an admission that he had “rolled up a little something” before coming up on stage. Most interesting, however, was that West ended the speech promising (or hopefully kidding) that he would be running… »

Wes Craven, Legendary Horror Director, Dead at 76

31 August 2015 5:35 AM, PDT

Legendary horror writer and director Wes Craven died of brain cancer over the weekend. He was 76 years old. Throughout his career, Craven was obviously most well-known for his work on the big screen, as he directed such classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. His other notable directing credits include The Last House on the Left, 1977’s The Hills Have Eyes and its sequel, The People Under the House, and all three Scream sequels, including 2011’s Scream 4, the last film that Craven ever directed. However, while his most famous work was done in film, Craven also made his mark on television as well. In 1988, he created Freddy’s Nightmares, a two-season horror anthology series that ran for 44 total episodes, with each episode being introduced by A Nightmare Elm Street’s iconic killer Freddy Krueger (played by Robert Englund). He also co-created the short-lived NBC series Nightmare Cafe, »
