We could explain that he’s a voice talent in the upcoming film The Penguins of Madagascar, which comes out in November.

But none of that is actually necessary to appreciate the simplicity of this photo. It’s Benedict Cumberbatch with a penguin, and that’s pretty much everything you need to know. »

Pornstache will not return for season 3 of 'Orange Is the New Black'

13 hours ago

When Orange Is the New Black returns, it will be missing a little facial hair.

Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mendez—a.k.a. Pornstache—told the New York Post that he will not appear in the show’s third season. It’s not a huge surprise, considering that the last time we saw his character—spoiler!—he was being carted away to prison. But then again, this entire show takes place inside a prison, so there’s that.

Schreiber told the Post: “I’m not taking part in the third season. I’m a member of a show called The Brink »

20 hours ago

Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew.

She noted, however, that “it was a little bit more campy and corny than The Arrow. »

'Suits' star Rick Hoffman talks Louis' dangerous moves

23 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Suits, “Litt the Hell Up,” stop reading now.

Louis (Rick Hoffman) once again made a move that unintentionally hurt Harvey’s position in the battle for Gillis Industries. Louis fixed it by tricking Charles Forstman (recurring guest star Eric Roberts) into doing business with him by making him believe he hates Harvey as much as Forstman does—a move that Harvey called brilliant, and rewarded by suggesting they drink scotch from Louis’ “You Just Got Litt Up!” mugs. But Forstman had the last laugh, insisting that Louis run »

Anna better look out, because a Frozen prince is headed to Once Upon a Time.

Bombs and bombshells collide in new trailer for Wgn's 'Manhattan'

23 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT

No, Wgn America’s second scripted original isn’t set on a certain overpopulated island, and it’s not a guide to mixing the perfect whisky-vermouth-bitters concoction. Instead, it’s a stylish retro drama about the men and women commissioned by the United States to create the world’s first atomic bomb—or, as one scientist wryly informs another in the following exclusive trailer, a device the team “prefers to call a gadget.”

Not already intrigued? Take a look at the extended promo, which starts out with old-timey newsreel footage before segueing into actual scenes from the series. You’ll »
