William Shatner's 'feud' with Carrie Fisher spilled over into his reaction to 'Force Awakens'

17 April 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Carrie Fisher and William Shatner’s on-going feud has been well documented for years. The tongue-in-cheek rivalry began back in 2011 when William Shatner publicly declared Star Trek the superior universe. Carrie returned fire and the rest is history. So of course Captain Kirk would take a couple of loving pot-shots at Princes Leia when the new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was revealed at Star Wars Celebration. It’d have been stranger if he hadn’t! I heard Star Wars Celebration is happening. If Fisher is there tell her that her Nemesis sends his love. — William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) April 16, 2015 I see the rebel alliance slept in today and the Federation had to step in. #slackerrebels https://t.co/dri7Nbn8X5 — William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) April 16, 2015   Via Twitter Oh and what was with that Han Solo line at the end?

TV Review: ‘StarTalk’

17 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For an astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson is certainly having his media moment, and then some. Beyond being the go-to guy for space talk in venues like “The Daily Show,” he’s become the host of the revived “Cosmos,” and this week not only narrates a National Geographic Channel special about the Hubble telescope but adds a weekly talkshow, “StarTalk,” to his media menu. Yet the series, at least, represents a case of stretching the Tyson experience a dimension too far, as well as demonstrating the limits of transforming something as static as a radio show/podcast into television.

Tyson amiably hosts the festivities out of his perch as director of the Hayden Planetarium, promising a discussion “where science and pop culture collide.” Given the initial guest roster — “Star Trek’s” George Takei and director Christopher Nolan, fresh off the space-and-time-bending “Interstellar” — so far, so good.

Still, what emerges is a disjointed affair, »

National Geographic Channel’s Late-Night Formula: Neil deGrasse Tyson + ‘StarTalk’ = ?

16 April 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Neil deGrasse Tyson wants to boldly go where no latenight host has gone before.

When the astrophysicist and “Cosmos” host takes to the National Geographic Channel on Monday night to launch TV’s latest ’round-midnight entry, “StarTalk,” he will do so without a monologue or a set of humorous skits poised to go viral across the digisphere. All he will have at his disposal is his vast store of knowledge about the realm of science, his inner geek, a few guests and a tie festooned with the trappings of distant galaxies.

NBC has Jimmy Fallon. ABC has Jimmy Kimmel. CBS will soon have Stephen Colbert. Starting Monday at 11 p.m., National Geographic will, for 10 episodes, have Tyson, who could bring with him a new wrinkle to TV’s latenight wars.

No one pretends the director of the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium will draw the numbers of »

Indiana Governor Green Lights Changes to Controversial Anti-lgbt Law

2 April 2015 8:14 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence approved an overhaul of the state’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Thursday. The week-old law sparked outcry with claims that it discriminated against the Lbgt community. Now for the first time in the state’s history, it has enacted protections based on sexual orientation. Pence had asked lawmakers to clarify language in the law earlier this week as businesses and sports associations canceled conventions and governments banned travel to the state, according to the Associated Press. “Star Trek” alum George Takei called on his fans to stage a boycott of Indiana, while Isaiah Washington, »

George Takei Reveals Teaser For New Web Series ‘It Takeis Two’

2 April 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

George Takei is back with a new web series. The activist and ex-Star Trek actor will take viewers behind-the-scenes of his life with husband Brad in the series It Takeis Two, premiering on April 7, 2015.

Entertainment Weekly reported on the Takeis’ upcoming show, self-described as a “heightened reality” series. George and Brad will show viewers what it’s like to live their very unusual daily lives, complete with everything from jetpacks to human hamster balls.

In the debut episode, dubbed “Seriously?!”, George tries to get his husband to embrace the craziness of the internet after Brad freaks out about a meme of himself and tries to expunge it from across the digital world. The theme of the first It Takeis Two episode is fitting, as George is a social media whiz. The ex-Star Trek actor boasts over 8.4 million likes on his Facebook page, as well as 1.6 million followers on Twitter. »

Comedy Central Justin Bieber Roast Isn’t Very Well Done

30 March 2015 11:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Given that roasts represent something of a cultural dinosaur, Comedy Central is perhaps to be forgiven for engaging in blatant demographic pandering, as it did by devoting its latest litany of one-liners to Justin Bieber. For Bieber, of course, the showcase represented an opportunity to show off a lighter side given his public-relations woes, while assembling a roster of comics and celebrities seemingly intended to make those viewing at home feel lightheaded even without assistance from mood-altering drugs.

Shaquille O’Neal? Martha Stewart? Ludacris and Snoop Dogg? It was almost enough to make one yearn for the comedy stylings of Jeff Ross.

Kevin Hart served as roastmaster, kicking off the festivities after a taped piece devoted to high- and lowlights from Bieber’s career, including his various legal troubles. And while jokes about Paul Walker were omitted from the broadcast due to issues of taste, the promotional aspect of that »

Outrage Watch: 'Get Hard' backlash is getting louder by the day

27 March 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 27, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: "Get Hard" is getting slammed. The Will Ferrell-Kevin Hart prison preparedness comedy has been dogged by controversy since its SXSW premiere, when an audience member asked Hart, Ferrell and director Etan Cohen, "Were you nervous -- and/or how nervous were you -- presenting this in front of a live audience being completely, absolutely and unapologetically ... racist and hysterical at the same time?" during an audience Q&A. Not only that, but it's been deemed homophobic by a number of critics and journalists, and our own Drew McWeeny had this to say in his review: "I just couldn't bring myself to laugh at something that will reinforce hatred, that plays into this idea that gay sex is somehow inherently more disgusting than regular sex. »

George Takei Calls for Boycott of Indiana Over Anti-lgbt Law

Star Trek” alum George Takei is calling upon his fans to stage a boycott of Indiana over a new law that many fear will allow businesses to refuse service to Lgbt customers. “I am outraged that Gov. Pence would sign such a divisive measure into law. He has made it clear that Lgbt couples, like Brad and me, are now unwelcome in his state,” Takei wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday. “I will join many in demanding that socially responsible companies withdraw their business, conferences and support from his state and that LGBTs and our friends and supporters refuse to visit. »

10 great George Takei moments on 'Howard Stern'

24 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are very few celebrity guests that come on "Howard Stern" that truly feel like they could be a member of the show's staff, but from his very first appearance George Takei felt right at home with Howard, Robin, Fred, Gary and the rest. Over the last 25 years the "Star Trek" icon has been on the show dozens of times, and each time I find myself wishing that he could become a permanent fixture. His oh-so-proper diction is betrayed consistently by a naughty sensibility that makes him a true delight and game for anything that comes his way. In celebration of George's appearance on this week's show, during which he judged the name of a contest that I probably shouldn't mention here, I've rounded up ten of his greatest "Howard Stern" moments in no particular order. 1. The time "Oh My" became his catchphrase. While Takei admits he's been using the term "Oh my" for years, »

Mr. T to Wield Sledgehammer for Diy Home-Renovation Series

19 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mr. T pities the fool who doesn’t know the first thing about home renovation.

“You can’t just knock down everything. There might be electrical wiring. There might be a gap open,” he cautioned in a recent phone interview. “You have to take your time. You have to scout things out. If you do the wrong thing, it’s going to be a disaster.”

Once known as one of Hollywood’s tough guys, the one-time bouncer and mohawked member of TV’s “The A-Team” will show a tender side as he helps people in need of redoing kitchens and living rooms as part of a new show on Scripps Networks’ Diy. Mr. T’s “I Pity the Tool” is the latest in a growing series of programs on the cable network that place celebrities in the midst of tricky home repairs and remodels.

“StarTalk,” astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new latenight series on National Geographic Channel, will start April 20, the cable network said Wednesday.

Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, biologist Richard Dawkins, retired Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, producer Norman Lear, film director Christopher Nolan and “Star Trek” actor George Takei were announced as guests. Bill Nye the Science Guy is slated to make weekly appearances.

The hourlong weekly series is based on Tyson’s podcast of the same name. The host is expected to explore the many ways science and technology have influenced the life of his guests. After conducting the private one-on-one interview with the main guest, Tyson and a group of panelists, which will include a comedian co-host and various “influencers,”  will sit before a live studio audience at the American Museum of Natural History’s Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City and chew over the topic of the week. »

'Top Five', 'Annie', 'Exodus', 'Penguins of Madagascar' and More On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

17 March 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Top Five Chris Rock's movie was one of the better comedies last year and it took me a couple times to realize this so definitely give it a chance and after that first viewing, if you aren't entirely convinced, give it a second spin.

Penguins of Madagascar Never saw it, never intend to. However, the penguin characters were the best part of the first two Madagascar movies, which in and of themselves, weren't very good.

Ride the Pink Horse (Criterion Collection) I have a copy of this, but haven't yet watched it, though I'm looking forward to it and will share some thoughts down the road. For now, here's Criterion's description: Hollywood actor turned idiosyncratic auteur Robert Montgomery directs and stars in this striking crime drama based on a novel by Dorothy B. Hughes.

Dream Casting: 12 Former Action Stars We'd Love to See in 'The Expendables' TV Series

9 March 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The explosive, action-packed world of The Expendables may be making its way to television, giving a score of former TV action stars a shot at career redemption.

According to Deadline, Sylvester Stallone, creator and star of The Expendables film franchise, is developing a spin-off series with Fox. Which raises the biggest question of all: Who will star in this wild ride?

Video: 'The Expendables 3' Stars Want Justin Bieber for the Next Film

Combing through the annals of action TV shows, we've compiled our dream list of former stars who could be called upon to take up arms once more and kick ass on our television screens.

1. Chuck Norris

If Norris isn't part of this, the world officially makes no sense. Sure, he and Stallone had their public differences after The Expendables 2, but the former Walker, Texas Ranger star is the perfect choice to bridge the gap between the film series and the small »

Outrage Watch: Method Man is really, really angry about this Wu-Tang album auction

Welcome to the March 5, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment.

Comic Book Review – Star Trek: New Visions – “A Scent of Ghosts”

4 March 2015 9:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: New Visions – “A Scent of Ghosts”…

John Byrne continues his new Star Trek photoplay adventures with “A Scent of Ghosts” and “Memoriam.” Past and Present collide, as the Enterprise takes aboard a special figure from Spock’s past, only to find themselves haunted by an mystery from years before. Plus, a sad farewell.

Star Trek: New Visions “A Scent of Ghosts” for me (and I’m going on record here by saying this) is the most interesting science fiction tale I’ve encountered in these New Visions pages.  We’re crossing over the generations between Pike’s time in the chair with and Kirk’s era in the throne.  We join the Enterprise which is currently escorting Pike’s old Number One, who is now a Commodore (still no name the poor soul) to the Yorktown.  However the trip doesn’t go according to »

4 March 2015 8:38 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The cover features new artwork from Billy Dogma creator Dean Haspiel and showcases a familiar face for fans of both the comic book series and the TV show, though what's thrust in front of him is something only the former may recognize.
