‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Stars Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson Give ‘Today's’ Natalie Morales a ‘Fluffer’ Tutorial

1 hour ago

Wonder if Natalie Morales ever ran into this situation when she was going to journalism school? While visiting the Vancouver set of the highly-anticipated Focus Features movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”, the “Today” show news anchor found out a new term from stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. When she uncomfortably asked the stars of the movie based on the hit E.L. James novel — she's admitted that she read the entire “Fifty Shades” series –  about how they stay “in the zone” while shooting the sex scenes, Johnson joked that Dornan had a “fluffer.” Also read: TheWrap's Reactions to ‘Fifty »

1 hour ago

The New York Yankees fan who is suing Espn and game announcers for $10 million after broadcasting him sleeping during a game said he's “not sure” what he actually wants to come out of the lawsuit, and a simple apology could “possibly” be enough. Andrew Rector appeared on NBC's “Today” show on Friday to discuss the defamation suit, and struggled to explain (above) what exactly Espn commentators John Kruk and Dan Shulman said about him that was so offensive.

‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’ Review: Helen Mirren Can Add Only So Much Flavor

1 hour ago

For a movie loaded with dialogue about cooking from the heart and not being afraid of spices, “The Hundred-Foot Journey” is a surprisingly bland slumgullion of food porn and emotional manipulation, filtered through the middlebrow sensibilities of director Lasse Hallström (who seems to be remaking his own “Chocolat,” as though that weren't bad enough the first time) and the treacly homilies of Oprah Winfrey (who executive produced alongside Steven Spielberg). It delivers the kind of sentimental sledgehammering I found myself willing to forgive — the presence of Helen Mirren goes a long way in that regard — but once the »

Sorry, Shark Week: Logo Plans ‘Snark Week’ (Exclusive)

1 hour ago

Logo TV is determined to be more biting than Shark Week: Just as Discovery airs its 27th annual celebration of teeth-gnashing fish, Logo will premiere its inaugural “Snark Week,” dedicated to the dark art of sassy commentary.

It will begin Aug. 1, before “Shark Week” and Logo's “Snark Week.” Both the We TV and Logo weeks will focus on snarky characters, one-liners, and episodes of snark-laced shows.

‘Hercules’ Review: Dwayne Johnson in an Epic That Never Feels Epic

8 hours ago

A bore, a drag, an eyesore, a trifle: Brett Ratner‘s ‘roid-brained “Hercules” is all of these, but most of all it's a self-satisfied smirk drawn on a 64-ounce protein shake. It's a supernatural epic that never feels quite colossal or consequential enough, as well as an utter waste of Dwayne Johnson‘s unique dopey-flirty charm in a starring role that requires him only to open his mouth very wide when yelling and look unmistakably masculine while wearing nothing but a leather miniskirt and one of those animal-head hats popular with middle-school girls. Adapted from the comic book by the recently deceased. »

Morgan Freeman ‘Very Undignified’ During Helium Interview on ‘Tonight Show’ (Video)

9 hours ago

Jimmy Fallon and Morgan Freeman did a great job of feigning disdain for one another during Freeman's appearance on “The Tonight Show.” Fallon started off on the wrong foot by identifying Freeman's show as simply “Through the Wormhole.” When he was corrected that the full title was “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman,” Fallon rolled his eyes. “Well, this is ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,'” he retorted. “So, ‘with’ is pretty interesting, but I'm ‘Starring’ in this.” See video: Morgan Freeman Says Not to Make Race A ‘Bigger Issue Than It Needs to Be’ In a nod to a bit from “Through. »
