Watch the Fantastic Four Cast Weather These Ignorant Interview Questions

3 hours ago

Fantastic Four actors Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan (sans Miles Teller) are the latest celebs to have to put up with painfully awkward, offensive interview questions. In a recent conversation with the Rock 100.5 Morning Show in Atlanta, interviewers first couldn't suspend their disbelief to see Mara and Jordan playing onscreen siblings (because of their different skin color), and then couldn't understand why the former would ever cut her hair. Instead of outright bristling at the questions lobbed their way, Mara and Jordan attempt to laugh the questions off, but, unfortunately, the interviewers keep digging themselves into a deeper hole. Here's footage from the incident: "You're white and you're black. How does that happen?" Oh boy. Jordan, who has dealt with this question before, ultimately answered by saying that there is actually a multitude of ways this could happen — like what if they (Sue Storm and »

Travi$ Scott Got Arrested After His Lollapalooza Act for Trying to Make His Fans Go Crazy

5 hours ago

Travi$ Scott was arrested by Chicago police Saturday after he attempted to incite the crowd at his Lollapalooza set, according to reports. In video footage (watch below) from his performance, Scott tells his fans to bum-rush security and join him onstage. Consequently, the rapper is facing disorderly conduct charges, the AP reports. Fest organizers said that Scott's set lasted just over five minutes, and that on-site security was able to contain the mass before it turned chaotic. "The performer played one song and then began telling fans to come over the barricades," a statement from the city's Office of Emergency Management said. "Due to the security's quick response, the situation was remedied immediately and no fans were injured. The performer fled the scene and was taken into custody a short while later." One fan has also reportedly been charged in the incident, according to Rolling Stone. In the video (above »

Halt and Catch Fire’s Kerry Bishé on Donna’s Huge Season, and Why the Show Isn’t a Bigger Hit

8 hours ago

True to its technological roots, Halt and Catch Fire received a major upgrade for its second season. Building on the strength of its first go-round’s final episodes, the AMC series about a quartet of troubled computer geniuses trying to build the next big thing in the Silicon Prairie of ’80s Texas quietly became an engaging and unpredictable workplace drama worthy of its Mad Men time slot. It may have struggled in the ratings, but it soared on screen. And as it did, Kerry Bishé was in the pilot’s chair. The actor behind Donna Clark navigated a demanding set of storylines — the creation of the proto-social network called Mutiny, constant clashes with her coworkers, her husband’s illness and infidelity, her own secret pregnancy and abortion. It placed the character at the center of the action, and elevated her to the first among equals in the show’s strong ensemble cast, »

8 hours ago

Stephen Colbert is a lot of things: America, comedian, magician, and pancake liar. But, most importantly, he's also about to become a major late-night host (and potential Romney enemy). Here to remind you of all that are three very new, very Colbert CBS promos for his Late Show. What's it going to be like? Well, maybe there will be some Charlie Rose(s):Maybe there will be some Motörhead: Maybe there will be some pancakes. There better be some pancakes (don't irk this guy): We'll know for sure on September 8. »

It’s Time to Start Liking Tom Cruise Again

10 hours ago

Looks like Tom Cruise finally has another hit on his hands. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has gotten good reviews and just delivered the actor's biggest opening weekend in some years. That should come as welcome news to Cruise, whose last few films been financially disappointing, at least in the U.S. (He's still pretty big overseas.) Of course, movie stars often have to deal with fallow periods. Will Smith is kind of in one right now; so is Jim Carrey. And Matthew McConaughey and Sandra Bullock had to endure their own respective ruts for a few years, before their current resurgence.The question of why so many movie stars have recently had a hard time of it is a complicated one, as much about Hollywood’s drift away from star-driven movies as it is about individual actors’ drawing power. But Cruise’s case is somewhat different. The reason a lot »

Bill Clegg Discusses His Journey to the Booker Prize Long List

10 hours ago

There are stranger twists in Bill Clegg’s life than in his first novel, Did You Ever Have a Family, which landed last week on Britain’s Booker Prize long list two months prior to publication. Americans only became Booker-eligible last year, and the five Yankees in this year’s “Booker’s Dozen” include two first timers, no Franzens, and only one literary agent/recovering addict/confessional memoirist. Raised in a rural Connecticut town much like the setting of his book, Clegg became one of New York’s most powerful young literary agents, only to destroy it all (colleagues and clients be damned) in favor of a bottom-scraping crack binge.He recovered swiftly from not only the addiction but the professional immolation—making seven-figure deals again and writing two lapel-grabbing, grit-glam memoirs, Portrait of an Addict As a Young Man and Ninety Days, that put him almost on par with his most valuable clients. »
