17 June 2012 2:56 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"Smash" casts "Newsies" star Jeremy Jordan for season two: "Rising Broadway heartthrob Jeremy Jordan, who earned a 2012 Tony nod for his starring role in 'Newsies,' is joining the second season of NBC’s musical drama as a series regular, TVLine has learned. Jordan will play a very sexy (and straight) Brooklyn-born singer with a self-destructive streak. His character is one of three roles being added under new showrunner Josh Safran. The other newbies, a gay male Broadway dreamer and an African-American female chorus member, have yet to be cast." TV Line Songwriters Hall of Fame inducts new artists: "Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Seger and Jim Steinman – who wrote the songs on Meatloaf’s 'Bat Out of Hell' album – were among the tunesmiths inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday at a ceremony in New York.

Warren Beatty, Brett Ratner Recall Memories at Beverly Hills Hotel During 100-Year Celebration Weekend

17 June 2012 2:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

During the weekend-long celebration for the Beverly Hills Hotel’s 100th anniversary, Warren Beatty demurred when asked for stories about living at the Pink Palace in his high-flying youth (“Are you kidding? I’m not going to tell you that”), while Brett Ratner had a pretty good one about staying in one of the bungalows for six months when one day -- independent of each other -- Bob Evans, Beatty and Michael Jackson dropped by. “I took a picture of them with my grandmother,” says Ratner. “It was great.” Beatty also held his cards tight when asked how his next

James Bond Declassified: Father's Day Dossier

17 June 2012 2:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is the 50th anniversary of James Bond's first theatrical feature film this year. That alone would be justification enough to write my special series in which we review each and every film in the official James Bond franchise so far, but I must confess a more personal motivation at work here. 1977 was a big year for me in terms of figuring out my tastes as a filmgoer.  It was obviously the year that "Star Wars" was released, and that film was like a lightning bolt someone fired directly into the top of my head.  It was also the year »

Weekend Report: Circus Afros Beat 80s Hairdos

17 June 2012 11:54 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Initial box office results for Rock of Ages and That's My Boy seem to confirm two very important things: the 1980s was a lousy decade, and starpower is a bit overrated. The latest projects from box office heavyweights Tom Cruise and Adam Sandler both bombed hard this weekend, which allowed Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted to easily hold on to the top spot. Prometheus remained in second as well, though it took a big hit in its sophomore outing, and the Top 12 wound up down 16 percent from the same frame last year.Madagascar 3 dipped 43.5 percent to $34.06 million this weekend. That's a strong hold for an animated sequel: in comparison, Cars 2 fell 60 percent, Toy Story 3 dipped 46 percent, and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa fell 44.5 percent. The movie remains ahead of both of its predecessors with a 10-day total of $119 million. Prometheus crashed 59 percent to $20.7 million in its second weekend. That »

Box Office Analysis: 'That's My Boy' Marks Second Disapointment in a Row for Adam Sandler

17 June 2012 10:44 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Is Adam Sandler losing his mojo? The $15.1 million debut of That's My Boy marks the worst performance for a Sandler comedy since Spanglish opened to $8.8 million in 2004 (Reign Over Me, an R-rated drama, opened to an even worse $7.5 million in 2007). That's My Boy, with its raunchy storyline and R rating, is something of a departure for Sandler, since he's mostly made broad comedies. Film Review: 'That's My Boy' Last year, Jack and Jill -- rated PG -- ultimately disappointed after opening to a promising $25 million in early November. The PG comedy topped

Chris Brown-Drake Brawl: The Fallout Continues

17 June 2012 10:38 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New details have emerged regarding the New York nightclub brawl between Chris Brown and Drake that left several people injured. It all began when Brown on Thursday tweeted a photo of a chin injury he sustained, which he insinuated came during an altercation with Drake's entourage at W.i.P. in SoHo. Drake has since denied any such wrongdoing in the incident, which the Associated Press reports left at least eight people injured. Reportedly, the feud began over singer Rihanna, who shares a romantic history with both men. Photos: Hollywood's Greatest Twitter Feuds Here are the latest updates surrounding the

Box office report: 'Madagascar 3' earns $35.5M, more than 'Rock of Ages' and 'That's My Boy' combined

17 June 2012 10:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A couple of high-profile openers couldn’t force the animals of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted into their cages. The animated comedy topped the box office once again this weekend, while Rock of Ages and That’s My Boy delivered majorly disappointing debuts.

Dreamworks’ $145 million effort Madagascar 3 roared a second time following its $60.3 million start. The CG-animated film dipped 41 percent to $35.5 million this frame, which was better than the second weekend decline of its predecessor, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, which fell by 45 percent and had earned a slightly softer $116.9 million at the same point in its run. »

'Rock of Ages' Recalls My Rod Stewart Connection

17 June 2012 10:09 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

  "Rock of Ages" nails it! Tom Cruise as  Stacee Jaxx is high octane sex on guitar.  Malin Akerman (Constance Sack) as a reporter from Rolling Stone matches Cruise with the passion that only can come from connecting with a rock 'n' roll superstar.   I know because that's how it was when I met Rod Stewart. We were at a party in the Hollywood Hills when Rod sent DJ J.J. Jackson over to invite me to meet his entourage on the other side of the room. Moments later we were at the private »

Box Office: Adam Sandler's 'That's My Boy' bombs as 'Madagascar 3' remains no. 1

17 June 2012 10:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It goes without saying that it wasn't a good weekend for Adam Sandler or Tom Cruise. Moreover, the same could be said for Andy Samberg and director Adam Shankman. Clearly the biggest bomb of the summer so far, Sandler and Samberg's "That's My Boy" opened to just $13 million weekend and a fifth place finish.  Once in the Will Smith category for a guaranteed $100 million grosser, this is Sandler's second misfire in a row after last November's "Jack and Jill" barely hit $76 million. It's also the worst opening for a wide Sandler opener since "Spanglish" in 2004.  "Boy" is »

17 June 2012 9:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: Major spoilers throughout.] It was two seasons in the making, but finally, Rosie Larsen's killer was revealed on the season finale of The Killing. The reveal happened at the very end of the flashback-filled episode when the real culprit -- Rosie's aunt Terry Marek, played by Jamie Anne Allman -- tearfully confessed to committing the grisly crime (putting the car with her niece still alive in drive and having it go into the lake) that kicked off the AMC drama in Aprll 2011. For much of the series, homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman)

Box Office Report: 'Rock of Ages,' 'That's My Boy' Flop in Their Debuts; 'Madagascar 3' Still Rules

17 June 2012 8:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Comedy took a beating at the domestic box office over Father's Day weekend as 1980s jukebox musical Rock of Ages and Adam Sandler's R-rated That's My Boy did dismal business in their debuts. Instead, it was holdovers Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted and Prometheus that continued to top the chart, staying at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively with $35.5 million and $20.2 million. Rock of Ages topped out at $15.1 million to place third; That's My Boy grossed $13 million to come in No. 5 after being bested by holdover Snow White and the Huntsman

Supreme Court Rules FCC's Indecency Policy 'Vague' but Allows Agency to Further Police Nudity and Language on TV

17 June 2012 8:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The U.S. Supreme Court handed TV networks a win Thursday by determining that the FCC violated their due process in failing to give advance notice on policies concerning isolated instances of fleeting naughty words and nudity on television. But the high court declined to issue a much broader ruling that the broadcasters had hoped to get that the FCC's indecency policies constituted a violation of the First Amendment. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote a unanimous opinion that called FCC's past indecency enforcement "vague."  But for the second time in five years, the justices have decided not to shake up
