Things got off to quite the exciting start for Taylor when she rang in 2015 with a Times Square performance, and in the midst of preparing for her upcoming tour, she's managed to win awards, travel with her friends, step out for some seriously cool parties, make a cameo on SNL, and even squash that Kanye West beef once and for all. Most recently, she was spotted holding hands with Calvin Harris, so with the promise of many, many more memorable Taylor moments on the horizon this year, take a look at some of her most exciting moments so far, and then check out her pop-star transformation. »
After Judd Apatow's latest comedy Trainwreck played South by Southwest earlier this month, the reviews frequently said that this might be the filmmaker's best work yet. Thankfully, in addition to Amy Schumer making a big screen splash as the leading lady, "Saturday Night Live" alum Bill Hader is also a force to be reckoned with as the comedienne's love interest, and now he's getting ready to work with another Hollywood heavy-hitter. Deadline reports Skeleton Twins star Bill Hader has joined the cast of The Bfg, the adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's book of the same that that is being directed by Steven Spielberg. It sounds like this is going to be a good year for Hader, because he's also one of the main voice actors in Pixar Animation's Inside Out, which is also arriving in theaters this summer. As of now, there's no word on what character Hader will play, »

With his first big leading man role poised to be unveiled in this summer's Trainwreck, the very talented Bill Hader is now going to be in a Steven Spielberg film. Deadline reports that the SNL alum has joined the cast of The Bfg, Spielberg’s adaptation of the Roald Dahl book of the same name.

For no reason at all (other than the recent occasion of St. Patrick's Day maybe?), you just need to watch this hilarious bit from the late '90s with Amy Poehler guest-starring on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" as Andy Richter's insane, Conan-loving little sister. Poehler played versions of this character on Comedy Central's "Upright Citizens Brigade" and later on "SNL," but its raw power is most unbridled here. Remember how long sketches used to go on these shows? I miss it! »

Electric violinist Bryson Andres has an entire YouTube channel dedicated to his incredible violin covers, but his renditions of Sia's songs are especially magical. Sia's latest album, 1000 Forms of Fear, has so many hits on it, but the two that have garnered the most attention are "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart." The former has scores of different iterations and performances from Sia herself, including her Grammys performance with Kristen Wiig. The latter had a controversial music video and a stripped-down SNL performance. Regardless of how many times you've listened to these songs, though, you've never heard them quite like this. Watch Bryson's performances above and below, and then watch them again and again and again. »
Some comedians burn brightly then fade away. Surfing a hit TV series or breakout supporting role to a movie lead, sometimes even a hit one, they can become overexposed, or have too many flops, and find themselves returning to relative obscurity or more modest creative pursuits. Will Ferrell is not one of those people. 2015 marks twenty years since he first appeared on “Saturday Night Live,” on which he quickly became one of the most valuable players. Twelve years since he became a fully-flung movie star with “Old School” and “Elf,” and Ferrell still remains one of the most in-demand comic names around. Sure, there have been misfires and flops along the way (this week’s “Get Hard” being one of them, at least according to our review), but his success rate has remained higher than most. Even in his worst films, or in his briefest appearances in other people's films, »

Today, Carnival Films and Masterpiece on PBS confirmed that the show will come to an end after Season 6, although executive producer Gareth Neame revealed to E! Online that the producers are contemplating a Downton Abbey movie. Here's what he had to say below.
"Our position on that is we would be very interested in that. It is definitely something we're contemplating. It would be great fun to do. I think it would be a wonderful extension of everything that people loved about the TV show, but I can't confirm that it's definitely going to happen. We shall see."
Things will be getting pretty sweet (and also sassy, of course) on Saturday Night Live when Cookie herself, Taraji P. Henson, stops by next month. The Empire actress will make her SNL hosting debut in April, but not before Birdman‘s Michael Keaton takes over first. As Saturday Night Live begins its April run, Keaton will host the show’s April 4 episode, with musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen, who will be performing for the first time ever on SNL. Then, the following Saturday, on April 11, Henson will get her opportunity to take the reins of Saturday Night Live for her first time, and she will be joined by Mumford & Sons as the night’s musical guest. The fact that Henson has already been tapped as a host for Saturday Night Live is yet another sign of Empire‘s pop culture dominance (you know, if the record-breaking ratings weren’t already »

Marvel has a ton of new movies in the works. Many of these already have directors on board, like Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and now the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. But there are still a bunch without. It looks like one, Inhumans, may hand the reins over to a former Saturday Night Live writer and frequent Will Ferrell collaborator. According to Latino Review and their sources, Adam McKay, who co-wrote Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man, is being considered to direct an upcoming movie for the studio. They don’t know specifically which film he will head, but they speculate he’s up for the job leading the Inhumans adaptation. The logic of this assumption flows like this: of Marvel’s upcoming Phase 3 movies, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Inhumans, and Thor: Ragnarok are all without directors at the moment.
