Jon Hamm Told His Girlfriend How 'Mad Men' Ends

9 hours ago

Yet another reason we wish we could date Jon Hamm: The "Mad Men" star admitted that he told his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt, how the series ends.

In an interview with Us Weekly, Hamm admitted that he had already spilled the beans about the top secret series finale to his partner of 15 years.

"Oh, she knows," Hamm told the magazine last week. "I tell her everything! I tell her everything and she definitely knows."

The actor said that Westfeldt, like everyone involved in "Mad Men," had been sworn to secrecy, and "won't tell anyone" what lies ahead. And Hamm kept mum, too, declining to give Us any hints about what's in store for Don Draper and Sterling Cooper & Partners.

"I'm pretty good at keeping it secret by now," he told the magazine. "I'm looking forward to it, I think we'll have a good time."

'Taken 3' Is Now Known as 'Tak3n,' May Be Last in Franchise

9 hours ago

Because no movie with a number in its title can just leave well enough alone, "Taken 3" has officially been re-branded as "Tak3n" -- and could be the final film in the franchise.

USA Today revealed the title switcheroo in a first look at the flick and a profile of its star, Liam Neeson. No word on whether the actor is renaming himself Liam N33son for the occasion.

But Neeson did drop a different bomb during his interview with the paper, noting that he thinks it may be time for the "Taken" franchise to end once "Tak3n" hits theaters.

"It's a rollicking good story," Neeson told USA Today of the third flick in the series. "But I think this is the end."

Of course, studio 20th Century Fox will probably have the last word on that, but it seems that "Tak3n" will spell the end of Neeson's involvement in the franchise. »

Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell Confirmed for 'True Detective' Season 2

10 hours ago

Sometimes, where there's smoke, there's fire. Similarly, when there's a casting rumor in Hollywood, well, sometimes there's truth to it. As per earlier buzz, HBO has finally confirmed that Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell (who already let that cat out of the bag) will star in the next season of "True Detective." We had a lot of fun dream casting the next season of "True Detective" -- remember when we hoped that it would star two women? -- but all good things must come to an end.

Farrell will play Ray Velcoro, a detective who is torn between his corrupt, police department bosses and the mobster who has his number, and Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a criminal who could lose his empire when his attempt to go straight is curtailed by the murder of one of his business partners.

Writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto described the upcoming season as being about "hard women, »

Charlie Sheen Wants to Return to 'Two and a Half Men' For Final Season Sendoff

11 hours ago

Will Charlie Sheen return to "Two and a Half Men" for the CBS sitcom's final season? According to the actor, he's on board with a potential comeback -- but it's unclear if he's actually been in touch with creator Chuck Lorre about that possibility.

Sheen made headlines on Tuesday when he told TV Guide that he had reached out to Lorre and CBS, and was having discussions about a potential appearance on "Men" this season.

"We're trying to figure out what makes the most sense," Sheen said of those negotiations. "If they figure it out like I've presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I'm available and I'm showing up early. If not, it's on them."

But it wouldn't be Sheen without some sort of exaggeration, as it appears that he wasn't exactly truthful with TV Guide about those discussions. E! News reports »

A New Paula Deen Documentary Tells Her Side of the Downfall

11 hours ago

J.M. Hirsch, AP Food Editor

Paula Deen is ready to tell her side of the story behind the racist remark that decimated her career, but you'll need to pay to hear it.

The former Food Network star has been working on a documentary about herself and her downfall - triggered in 2013 by her acknowledgment that she'd used a racial slur in the past - but it will only be available to subscribers of her new website, the Paula Deen Network. Recipe content on the site will be free, but viewers will need to pay $9.99 a month to view videos.

"We hope to have it out the first of the year and tell everybody the true story of what really happened," Deen said of the documentary during a recent telephone interview. "It was a painful year for me. It was a hurtful year when I found myself being labeled for something I was not. »

Colin Firth Teaches a Lesson in New 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Trailer

13 hours ago

When Colin Firth is having an "emotional day," you do Not want to mess with Colin Firth.

That's the harsh lesson he doles out to a group of thugs in this new action-packed trailer for "Kingsman: The Secret Service." This footage proves that Firth isn't just a eloquent, debonair mentor to Taron Egerton's street punk - he can kick ass and take names as well as any spy.

"Manners maketh man," Firth sniffs, before dispatching the thugs.

The new trailer also features quite a bit of Samuel L. Jackson being hilarious; Michael Caine being, well, Michael Caine-like; and a lot the stylish action set pieces that are the hallmark of director Matthew Vaughn. Oh, and it's all accompanied by a thumping new song from Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding.

"Kingsman" opens in theaters Feb. 13, 2015.

John Malkovich Recreates Iconic Photos of Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon and More

14 hours ago

John Malkovich has played a lot of roles in his life, but for his latest project, he may have doubled the number.

The actor posed for photographer Sandro Miller in a series of images replicating iconic pictures, many featuring celebrities. For instance, he stands in for a naked John Lennon hugging wife Yoko Ono. And topless, he holds two pink roses in front of his chest, just as Marilyn Monroe famously did.

The series, called "Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich," will be shown at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago starting Nov. 7.

"This whole body of work it just to me, and I hope for others, is to really see just how deep this man is and just how brilliant and how much of a genius he is when it comes to performance, to performance art," Miller told Entertainment Weekly of his longtime collaborator.

William Shatner Might Be in the Next 'Star Trek' Movie

15 hours ago

Kirk and Spock, together again at last - original flavor style.

Badass Digest reports that "Star Trek 3" could feature a cameo by William Shatner. While his original series co-star, Leonard Nimoy, appeared in both reboot films, the good captain did not.

This would mark the first time that Shatner and Nimoy share the screen in over two decades.

As Devin Faraci writes, "I have learned that the script for 'Star Trek 3' includes a scene that reteams Shatner and Nimoy onscreen as Kirk and Spock for the first time in canon since 1991's 'Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.' It would be a pretty huge moment for fans of the franchise, and likely the last time we'll ever see Shatner as James T. Kirk in official continuity."

There was supposed to be a cameo for Shatner in "Star Trek," but J.J. Abrams didn't end up shooting the scene. »

'Walking Dead' Season 5 Trailer: 'It's Not Over Until They're All Dead'

15 hours ago

It's not called "The Walking Dead" for nothing - season 5 of the blockbuster AMC drama figures to rack up the highest death count yet.

The network released a new trailer, which is a mere 30 seconds long (come on, guys, really?!). But we can glean that Rick's crew gets out of that shipping container; that zombies overrun Terminus; that they're all ready to kill anyone not with their group at the drop of a hat; and that "three of us are gone," as Sasha says.

Whoa! The death count is at three and the season hasn't even started yet! "The Walking Dead" premieres Sunday, Oct. 12.

'The Shawshank Redemption' Cast: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

16 hours ago

It's hard to believe now, given the film's ubiquity, that "The Shawshank Redemption" didn't get much notice upon its initial release 20 years ago this week (on September 23, 1994). The movie was not a hit, earning just $28 million in theaters. It did get nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (for Morgan Freeman), and Best Adapted Screenplay (for writer/director Frank Darabont's adaptation of Stephen King's short story "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption"), but it was shut out on Oscar night. Maybe it was that ungainly title.

Nonetheless, the film found its following on home video and endless cable reruns. Today, it's considered a modern classic, everyone's favorite movie about prison, and maybe everyone's favorite Stephen King adaptation as well. Its two leads, Freeman and Tim Robbins, went on to win Oscars years later. Other cast members weren't so celebrated. Here's what happened to the cons »

Best of Late Night TV: Sofia Vergara's Lip Flip, Courteney Cox's Name Game (Video)

17 hours ago

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Sofia Vergara stopped by "The Tonight Show" to promote her new perfume, Sofia, and brought a sample for host Jimmy Fallon. The "Modern Family" star also asked Fallon if they could do a Lip Flip segment, since she was such a big fan of the bit, and always wanted to interview herself. Fallon enjoyed imitating Vergara's accent, while Vergara poked fun at Fallon's bromance with Justin Timberlake. The segment ended with the pair doing a short duet to Gloria Estefan's "Conga."

"The Blacklist" star Megan Boone also chatted with Fallon, though the actress was tight-lipped about revealing anything about the show -- so tight-lipped, in fact, that she momentarily pretended she couldn't speak. »

5 Reasons You Should Give 'Gotham' a Try

22 September 2014 11:45 AM, PDT

Last week, the Television Critics Association named Fox's "Gotham" the most promising new show of the fall TV season. But does that mean you're going to tune in tonight? We were lucky enough to catch the pilot of Fox's new Batman dark and twisty prequel and we have to admit -- this new series has a lot of promise.

Here are 5 reasons "Gotham" is worth watching:

1. It Appeals to More Than Just Comic Book Fans

There's enough jam-packed in the "Gotham" pilot to make it work for even the non-superhero obsessed or those Batman novices out there. Sure, there are comic book elements and familiar faces to satisfy those looking for the DC connection, but this is a cop show about the crime-addled city of Gotham at its core. Detective James Gordon's quest to track down Bruce Wayne's parents' murderers is the focus here -- Batman isn't a part of this story yet. »

Stephen King's '11/22/63' Heading to Hulu

22 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT

Los Angeles (AP) - Stephen King's time-travel novel about the Kennedy assassination is being adapted as a small-screen miniseries.

Streaming service Hulu said Monday that the nine-hour series, titled "11/22/63" after King's book, includes the author and J.J. Abrams as executive producers.

King said in a statement that if any of his works cried out for "long-form, event TV programming," then "11/22/63" is it.

In King's 2011 novel, a high school teacher goes back in time to try to prevent the Nov. 22, 1963, killing of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald.

The release date for "11/22/63" and casting weren't announced by Hulu or producer Warner Bros. Television. The series will be seen in the United States on Hulu and distributed internationally by Warner. »

20 Random 'Friends' Facts Every Fan Should Know

22 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT

So you call yourself a "Friends" fan, eh? You've seen every episode, know all the lyrics to that darn theme song, and consider classic lines ("could I Be wearing anymore clothes?") part of your everyday vocabulary.

"Friends" premiered 20 years ago today on September 22, 1994, and we thought we would honor that big anniversary by putting together 20 little-known facts about the iconic series. Want to see if you're the master of "Friends" trivia? Look no further:

1. Original titles considered for the show included Six of One, Friends Like Us, Insomnia Cafe, and Across the Hall.

2. The apartment numbers got switched as the series went on. Monica and Rachel's original apartment number was 5, but was later changed to 20 because 5 was too small a number for such a high floor. Joey and Chandler's was switched from 4 to 19.

3. Jon Favreau and Jon Cryer were up for the role of Chandler. As you may remember, Jon Favreau »

Jada Pinkett Smith Just Joined 'Magic Mike Xxl' in a Super Secret Role

22 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT

Jada Pinkett Smith is one of three new female additions to the cast of "Magic Mike Xxl," confirming in a recent interview that she'll appear in the follow-up to the 2012 stripper drama.

While chatting with Queen Latifah, Smith told the talk show host that she was excited to start shooting the flick -- and her role was a unique one.

"Yes, you know, Channing [Tatum] and [director] Gregory [Jacobs] and Warner Bros. really took a chance," Smith told Latifah. "There was a character written for a male that they wanted to turn into a female."

Smith declined to say more about the role, but insisted that she wouldn't be portraying a dancer.

"I can't really reveal it yet, but I'm excited about it," the actress added.

Deadline seems to have solved the mystery, though, writing that Smith would be playing a strip club owner in the "Magic Mike" sequel. We'll have to wait »
