‘Ninja Turtles': What Happened to the Actress Who Played the Original April O’Neil?

8 August 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This weekend, Megan Fox plays April O’Neil in Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” but she’s not the first actress to portray the character. In 1990, Judith Hoag originated the role of the intrepid reporter who befriends the pizza-loving heroes, although she almost turned down the part. “When I first heard of it, I thought it was a horror film,” Hoag recalls on a recent telephone call with Variety. “‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is such a strange name. I wasn’t into the comic books at all.”

Hoag, 22 at the time, was in the middle of shooting the Robin Williams comedy “Cadillac Man,” and her schedule prevented her from committing to “Ninja Turtles.” Then the producers were able to make it work, and Hoag had to fly from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina, on the weekends for production. “People would be wondering where I would racing off to on a Friday, »

Here’s a pleasant surprise: Bert, Cookie Monster, and Murray came to the EW Hideout at San Diego Comic-Con all the way from Sesame Street. They were pretty excited to be there, and really, really like comic books. Except for Bert. He’s into bottle caps.

Unfortunately, there’s no booth for that at the convention, but that’s okay—wait ’til you see how excited they all get when they find out there’s a Justice League movie.

Also, Bert has seen Entourage. Who knew they even allowed HBO over at Sesame Street?

Press Tour: Cristin Milioti and Ben Feldman's instant 'A to Z' chemistry

13 July 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's relationship comedy "A to Z" will answer a question TV fans never even thought to ask: Do Cristin Milioti (the Mother on "How I Met Your Mother") and Ben Feldman (Ginsberg on "Mad Men") have chemistry? That, and the conceit of following a relationship from beginning to end over the course of a single season, were the hot topics at the show's panel at the TCA 2014 summer press tour. Executive producer Ben Queen (a writer on "Cars 2" and creator of that short-lived Fox series "Drive" with Nathan Fillion and Emma Stone) said chemistry was the primary concern in casting. "When they got together to do the network test they had met each other literally a hour before. It was real electric chemistry. I had been told this existed and it's there," Queen said. While Feldman was more self-effacing ("Cristin had her job, they needed to bring in a »

150 random celebrities, painstakingly sorted into Hogwarts houses

8 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.

First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning, »

Kill Breed - A Look at the Many Species of Vampires

7 July 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Vampire. Envision the creature. Do you picture the classic cloaked version? Or the frilly shirt-wearing kind? Or the feral? Or god forbid the sparkly ones? Vampires come in all shapes and sizes, and with Rigor Mortis coming to Blu-ray and DVD on July 8th, we decided to take a look at some of our favorites.

Ever since Bram Stoker brought us Dracula, filmmakers and storytellers have been modifying vamps and making them into all sorts of unique beasties. Some are pretty and some are really, really ugly… but they all drink blood and use humans like we use cattle.

Rigor Mortis features a very unique type of vampire, and it's always fun to see a creature that expands the legend.

So let's take a look at some of the coolest types of vampires that have come into our lives.

For starters, we'll begin with the classic vampire. And what do we mean by "classic" vampire? »
