Jenny McCarthy Engaged to Donnie Wahlberg
There's a new bride-to-be on the block! Jenny McCarthy announced on The View Wednesday that Donnie Wahlberg popped the big question (and presented her with a big rock) and she happily said yes. "I just got engaged!" the star said on the show as she unveiled her hidden hand from behind the desk and then proceeded to jump around the set. "It's a yellow sapphire," she explained about the rock. Crying as she told about the proposal, McCarthy said her son Evan helped with the surprise last weekend, and how Wahlberg - who ended up coming onto the TV set »

FX Renews The Americans
FX has renewed The Americans for a 13-episode third season, the network announced today. The Cold War drama is currently halfway through its second season, and while the live ratings are nothing to brag about, the show does much better once you factor in DVR viewers, too. Even though FX has been promising for several weeks that an official announcement was nigh, it's still a relief to know, officially, that everyone will be back for more espionage. More sexy espionage. And presumably more espionage-y sex, too. »

Missing Boy, 3, Found in Bowling Alley Toy Claw Machine
A 3-year-old Nebraska boy who disappeared from his apartment turned up at a bowling alley across the street happily playing with stuffed animals inside a claw machine. "I really don't think he noticed any of us outside the machine because he was just picking up stuffed animals and putting them down where they come out of," Rachell Hildreth, a bartender at Madsen's Bowling Alley and Billiards in Lincoln, Neb., tells Klkn-tv. The boy went missing on Monday night, apparently slipping out of an unlocked door while his mother was in the bathroom, according to police. When officers got to the »

‘Batman-Superman’ Movie to Be Scored by Hans Zimmer
Zimmer told Digital Spy that he will begin working on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” follow-up once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (Nolan evidently kept the sci-fi film’s plot a secret from his longtime composer).
“We’ve already had a couple of chats and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about, I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” said Zimmer, who most recently scored Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Zimmer is no stranger to the Batman universe, having penned the music to Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. However, he »

Bill O'Reilly Takes His Stephen Colbert Bashing to ‘The View’
Bill O'Reilly criticized Stephen Colbert on “The O'Reilly Factor” earlier this week, and continued his campaign against David Letterman's “Late Show” replacement during an appearance on “The View” on Wednesday. “He's more than a comedian. He's a mouthpiece for the far left,” O'Reilly said. “I have a pretty good relationship with Jon Stewart … but Stewart's a different animal. Stewart will make fun of everybody. He sees things that are absurd on both sides. Not Colbert. He's a very committed leftist.” See video: Stephen Colbert Apologizes to Bill O'Reilly, Defends Vietnam War (Video) Colbert is very committed to his faux conservative personality on. »

Woman Accused of Killing Her Six Babies Gave Birth at Home: Police
A Utah woman accused of concealing seven pregnancies before strangling or suffocating her newborns gave birth each time in her home, authorities said Wednesday. Investigators have determined that Megan Huntsman, 39, did not go to a hospital to have the babies, Pleasant Grove Police Capt. Mike Roberts said. He didn't say if anyone helped her give birth. After her estranged husband discovered one of the infant corpses in the garage this past weekend, Huntsman acknowledged to police that she killed six of the babies, put them in plastic bags and then packed them inside boxes in the garage of her home »

Valerie Harper Denies Report That She Is Cancer-Free
In response to a story in Closer Weekly that quotes Valerie Harper as having declared that she is “absolutely cancer-free,” the Emmy winner has come out to say that the quote is unfortunately “erroneous.”
“In response to a recent erroneous quote concerning my health, I am not ‘absolutely cancer-free,’” a statement from Harper issued via the Hallmark Channel reads. “I wish I were. Right now what I am is cautiously optimistic about my present condition, and I have hope for the future.”
Harper, who rose to fame as Rhoda in “The Mary Taylor Moore Show” and starred as the character in the spinoff “Rhoda,” is currently promoting her appearance in Hallmark Channel series “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”
Harper was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 and subsequently developed brain cancer. In January 2013, she was told she only had three months to live. However, she told Variety in November that she was continuing to show improvement. »

Nick Frost: Big, lovable, impeccable at being a goofball. Oh, and he's a pretty good dancer, too.

Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper on the unique nature of 'Guardians of the Galaxy'
Are you confused by Marvel's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy"? A (very) brief new featurette wants to reassure casual fans that -- although there's more comedy and space-set action this time around -- "Galaxy" is still part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And famous people like Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are in it (at least their voices are). Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige tells us that while "Galaxy" is part of that universe, it "takes it to the next level," mixing more overtly sci-fi elements with superhero lore. Star Zoe Saldana adds, "it's not a typical superhero movie," meaning no one will mistake it for "The Avengers," although the two franchises are connected via the intergalactic villain Thanos ?as well as that mid-credits scene in "Thor: The Dark World." Instead of do-gooders like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, the Guardians are a group of reluctant heroes made up of thieves, »

'Orange Is the New Black's' Jenji Kohan Details Her Frustrating Negotiations to Get Actors Naked
There's a lot to be said about Orange is the New Black -- but when showrunner Jenji Kohan took the stage at Wednesday's Hollywood Radio and Television Society lunch, the conversation kept circling nudity. It doesn't help that she was joined by Masters of Sex's Michelle Ashford (and Bates Motel's Carlton Cuse), but Kohan's frank discussion of sex and nudity on her show earned the biggest reaction, by far, from the industry crowd. "I love graphic sex, the more sex the better," she said. "Very often it's convincing the actors to get naked... You hope everyone will just be cool

Why an X-Men Clip Will Play After Spider-Man 2’s Credits
On May 2, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters and at the end, after all the credits, there will be a clip for X-Men: Days of Future Past. While post-credit scenes are old hat with comic book movies (or old mask, if you will), this is noteworthy because Spider-Man is Sony and X-Men is Fox, and, traditionally, disparate comic book movie universes don't overlap. Why it's happening has to do with (500) Days of Summer? Seriously. No, Fox didn't dump Sony and Sony is giving them ad-space to try to win them back. Years ago, Marc Webb signed a contract to make two movies for Fox. The first was Summer. However, instead of making another Fox movie, Sony stepped in with the first Amazing Spider-Man. Variety reports that Fox agreed to let go of Webb if Sony agreed to promote X-Men for free. Though this reasoning might disappoint nerds hoping for a »

German auteur Fatih Akin pulls out of Cannes, as shorts lineup is revealed
When a film widely seen as a dead cert to make the Cannes lineup doesn't ultimately appear, there can be any number of routine explanations, from shooting and editing overruns to inter-festival politics to the aesthetic whims of the selection panel – but it's unusual for a filmmaker to withdraw his own work for “personal reasons.” That's what's happened, however, with German-Turkish auteur Fatih Akin, whose first narrative feature in five years, “The Cut,” was on most Competition prediction lists. Akin has offered no further explanation for his decision to pull the film, which stars Tahar Rahim and is the belated final instalment in Akin's “Love, Death and the Devil” trilogy, with started with 2004's “Head-On” (a Berlinale Golden Bear winner) and continued with 2007's “The Edge of Heaven.” The latter premiered at Cannes and won the Best Screenplay award, so Akin has a history with the festival; two years ago, »
