17 April 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Matt Lauer is doing everything he can to launch Ellen DeGeneres‘ plumbing career. DeGeneres got quite the surprise on her drive to work Friday, as “The Today Show” host paid to have four billboards put up around Los Angeles featuring DeGeneres sporting a prominent plumber’s crack and a phone number for her “plumbing service.” “The joke’s on you because I’m a good plumber,” DeGeneres responded in a preview of Monday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” She then played a video with her and a producer meeting near one of the billboards to snap a few pictures. »

'Harry Potter 8' Happening? Jk Rowling Won't Say Never!

10 April 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Harry Potter fans are excited enough about the franchise continuing on in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, they'd much rather be getting a new adventure featuring Harry Potter and his friends Ron and Hermione. That isn't happening, though, and probably won't. Ever. At least according to author J.K. Rowling.

She has stated in the past that she has no plans to revisit the main characters for another full-length book. But people keep asking the question. The Today Show once again went at it. And J.K. Rowling quite firmly says 'no'. But then, she doesn't want it to be that black and white. While she has no plans to continue the series, ever, she wants to leave the door open just a crack. Asked if we'd be getting Harry Potter 8 sometime in the future, she says:

"No. But even as I answer that, I know that someone's cutting »

Thanks to their performances in Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere have long been considered one of the greatest romantic pairs of the modern cinematic era, but what may surprise you is that the on-screen coupling may not have happened if it had not been for one tiny little Post-It Note. With Pretty Woman celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Laura San Giacomo and Hector Elizondo and director Garry Marshall visited The Today Show to celebrate, and it was while talking with Matt Lauer that Gere and Roberts revealed the story of how the latter convinced the former to be her co-star in the beloved romantic comedy. The story began with it being explained that the actor had actually turned down the role of Edward Lewis multiple times (Gere saying, "You could put a suit on a goat and put it out there, and it »

Ashley Judd Spreads the Kentucky Love With a Kiss That Blew Up Social Media

17 March 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Source: Instagram user dickiev_espn On Sunday, the Kentucky Wildcats won their game against the Arkansas Razorbacks, but the win wasn't what had everyone talking. Ashley Judd, who is a huge Kentucky fan and was at the event, received a smooch right on the lips from sportscaster Dick Vitale, and it sent ripples over social media. It was initially reported that Dick was the instigator, but in an interview on Monday, Dick said, "Under no condition did I plant a kiss on Ashley. It's the other way around.

In Fantastic New Comedies 'Last Man on Earth' and 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,' First Tragedy, Then Farce

10 March 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the series premiere of Netflix's brilliant confection "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," from "30 Rock" veterans Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, four women held captive in an underground bunker for 15 years appear on "The Today Show" to tell their story. ("Thank you, Bryant," one says—to Matt Lauer.) Though it begins with the easily lampooned business of viral videos and morning chatter, however, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" soon deploys the absurd, allusive humor of "30 Rock" toward the hard work of living, every day, without losing hope. The indefatigable Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) decides to stay on in New York rather than return home to Indiana, and her message to her fellow survivors expands on the credo of the series' auto-tuned main theme: "They alive, dammit!" "We're not garbage, we're human beings!" she says. "I have to get my life back. Everybody in Durnsville is always going to look at me like a...

'Spider-Man': Hutcherson and Glover Talk Casting Rumors

26 February 2015 11:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are two big questions facing the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this moment in time: Who will play Spider-Man? And...Will he be white? We may get those answers next week as Robert Downey Jr. teased an impending announcement from Marvel that promises to be epic in nature. While we wait for next Thursday to roll around, we do have some interesting comments from two actors currently rumored to be up for the role. The first is The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who was actually eyed to play the character way back in 2011, before Andrew Garfield got cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man. The second is Donald Glover, whom fans rallied around as he campaigned for the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, too.

If we had a dollar for every time we've freaked out about the possibility of sleeping through our alarm, we'd be sitting pretty on a big pile of Washingtons. Ya feel us? And this morning, Savannah Guthrie proved that she's just like us…except she actually did miss her wake-up call. Dun dun dun! The Today show host took to Twitter to share with fans that for the first time in years, she hit the snooze button one too many times. "This is a first. Overslept @Studio1Adon please be merciful," she shared earlier this morning before posting this hilarious follow-up tweet: "Can't today wait until tomorrow?" Oh, Savannah.

Recap: 'The Celebrity Apprentice' crowns a winner

16 February 2015 7:57 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After two TV personalities created ads for Universal Orlando and paid their "Celebrity Apprentice" dues by praising Donald Trump, he awarded one of them $250,000 for their charity. That money is about the only thing that matters on "Celebrity Apprentice" finales, which are the worst part of a show that draws so much entertainment from celebrities being tested by high-pressure, quasi-business challenges. Since the decision is up to Donald Trump, it's always been like flipping a coin into a shredder: decisive but pointless. That said, Leeza Gibbons is an incredibly satisfying winner because she was such a non-controversial contestant all season, someone who was strong yet wonderful. She also raised more money in the final task, $324,000 to Geraldo Rivera's $146,000, and won the creative challenge, too. Trump told her, "you lead with kindness" and have "tremendous leadership ability." He also tried to get her a job with The Today Show. Before that, »
