5 Years of Colton Haynes’ Most Spectacular Halloween Costumes Over the Years (Photos)

1 hour ago

Actor Colton Haynes often plays the straight man: stoic, serious, or youthfully determined, Haynes’ roles often define the modern-day protagonist, even when he’s part of the secondary cast. With that in mind, Haynes’ Halloween activities couldn’t be any farther away from his on-screen personas. For over half a decade, Haynes’ creative costumes have been making headlines, and this has served to propel the actor to take on even crazier personas every year. While he’s often found in the spandex of a certain red vigilante, Haynes often opts for female characters and over-the-top makeup. This year was no different: With massive prosthetic breasts, »

Former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly paid $32 million earlier this year to settle sexual harassment claims from a coworker, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Michael Rapaport Skewers Trump on Global Warming, Dubs Him ‘Dumb Donald’ (Video)

3 hours ago

The verdict is in: actor Michael Rapaport and President Donald Trump are on opposite ends of the climate change “debate.” The star of Netflix’s “Atypical” took to Twitter on Saturday morning to post one of his trademark sharp-tongued videos, skewering the president for his skepticism of global warming. Rapaport was at an ice skating rink bearing Trump’s name — or as he called him, “dumb Donald, Donald the f—-g deviant ” — and highlighted the rink’s conspicuous lack of, well, ice. “There’s no global warming, right? Look at your ice skating rink, you f—cking dummy,” Rapaport said, »
