Entertainment Weekly: I was wondering how Tina was going to handle this mother vs. daughter duel. My take was that Tina was just too competitive to actually lay down and throw it. Being there, what was your take, and how did Katie seem to feel to you when Tina asked her if it was okay to knock her out?

And how could it not be? NBC's Monday crime drama is one of the season's new hits, with strong ratings (including those from post-broadcast DVR viewings, where the show has set a couple of records) and positive reviews ... and a breakout star in Boone as novice FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen, who's drawing interest and information from enigmatic ex-fugitive Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader).
"I was so elated," Boone tells Zap2it of learning she'd be teamed with Spader, since she was cast for "The Blacklist" first. "He often believes in me more than I believe in myself. I'm expected to carry the show with him, and at first, that was really a daunting task.
"James helped me to know that I could put that energy into the work that we do together. And in doing so, he established a »
They are never, ever, getting back together. It’s not just a Taylor Swift song — it’s a new mantra for the ‘Teen Mom’ stars! The former couple told camera crews that they are definitely not rekindling the romance, they’re just coming together for their daughter.
If you were hoping for an Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley reunion, you might be severely disappointed by the latest news out of their relationship. The parents were spotted hanging out at a Panera Bread food chain in Anderson, Indiana on Nov. 7 with their 4-year-old daughter, Leah – their first public family outing since Amber’s release from prison — but Amber insisted that they are not back on the road to coupledom.
Amber said that she and Gary were just out enjoying a day together for the sake of their daughter. “Being there for Boo Boo, »

In this weekend's ridiculously entertaining "Last Vegas," a group of elder statesmen take a trip to Las Vegas after one of them proposes to a young honey. The four old coots at the center of "Last Vegas" also happen to be classy, Oscar-winning actors (Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline), and it's wonderful to watch them bumble around the neon-drenched, scantily clad Las Vegas of today.
And while everyone (including the female lead, played by Mary Steenburgen) is an absolute hoot, if there had to be an Mvp designated (for the sheer amount of giggles provided), it would probably be Kline. As a man who is living in the retirement hell of Florida and stuck in a marriage that has lost the physical spark, he goes to Vegas looking for a fresh start (and a good lay -- his girlfriend gives him a "free pass" and »

Who's that man posing with the Beatles? He's the Hollywood producer who signed the Fab Four to star in A Hard Day's Night before they touched down in America for the first time. He's also the guy who launched the James Bond movie franchise by giving the green light to make Dr. No, then saved it by luring Sean Connery back for one more movie. He also discovered the likes of Steve Martin and Woody Allen on the stand-up circuit and started their movie careers. Many movers and shakers in the entertainment industry are hidden in the fine print and not seen in the spotlight, and now legendary producer David Picker is stepping out with a new memoir – Musts, Maybes, and Nevers: A Book About the Movies – and sharing some Hollywood tales with ETonline.

Following on from the ratings success of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which premiered in the States last week to almost 12 million viewers, Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has spoken about the studio's first foray into live-action television during a chat with Comic Book Resources, as well as updating the status of Disney's first Marvel animated feature, Big Hero 6...
"You can never, ever take any of this stuff for granted," says Quesada. "I think therein lies disaster. We always make everything we do -- whether it's our comics, movies, animated shows or now our live TV episodes -- to the best of our abilities with the best intent and with all our heart and souls. And then, at the end of the day, it's out of our hands. It's up to the audience to let us know if we've succeeded in some small fashion. We've been very, very lucky »

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada recently gave a lengthy interview, where he discussed both Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel Studios upcoming animated superhero movie Big Hero 6, which is being developing alongside Pixar.
When asked about the fast-paced nature of a live-action television series, Joe Quesada talked about how the TV process compares to publishing comic books every week.
"It certainly adds to the pressure of how we have to be careful of these things. But we also work hand-in-hand with the studios to be sure that they're intimately involved as we work out these concepts. It is like a living, breathing weekly document we're making with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and we want to make sure that we're an additive to the Cinematic Universe tapestry and not a complication.
What strikes me as interesting about the world of live action television is how much it reminds me of comics publishing. »
It should come as no surprise that Marvel Entertainment's growing presence on page and screen means more time reading scripts and memos for Joe Quesada. Marvel's ever airborne Chief Creative Officer recently sat down with Comic Book Resources to discuss his newly evolved role and how his roots in comic production prepared him for the breakneck pace of a weekly television series like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
Says Quesada: "I enjoy the fact that during the course of the week—almost on a daily basis—I'm reading something that's coming from the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' writing or production crew. Sometimes it's a brief on an episode or the latest draft of a script or a rough cut of a future episode or the dailies, which come, well, daily. Whatever it is that I'm getting, there's a constant flow of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' stuff in my inbox. »

The UK has seen a pretty awesome summer in 2013 compared to recent years. But as brilliant as constant sunshine is a welcome change to the usual rain in June or snow in April, some of us here at Digital Spy can't help but choose autumn as our favourite season of the year. And autumn has arrived today!
Sun is still around, a cool breeze is in the year, trees and falling leaves look like a beautiful painting, and we can start wearing cosy jumpers. So for those who love this time of year, DS has compiled a list of 12 great autumnal movies for the 12 equinox hours to get you in the mood.
While the time-travel elements may be confusing and make little sense, this underrated gem reunites Speed's Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in a film that really showcases the beauty of autumn throughout.

Exclusive: After hatching characters that fueled movies such as Wayne’s World and Austin Powers, Mike Myers quietly spent the past two years readying his feature directorial debut on a docu about Shep Gordon, a music manager as colorful as any previous Myers creation. Few knew this was how Myers was spending his time until Toronto unveiled a lineup that included Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon. The film premieres tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 at Roy Thompson Hall as an acquisition title. Myers chronicles the spiritual and career journey of Gordon, whose trajectory is parts Forrest Gump and Being There, in terms of the number of chance encounters with icons that helped make him a giant in his field. It started when he arrived in a hotel room in California after quitting a job on the first day. Hearing a woman in distress outside, he rushed to her aid and »

Despite a late night, I rolled up to the Empire at early o clock in order to make sure I got a seat for the midnight movie Willow Creek, which had sold out the day before. Fortunately, the organisers had the wherewithal to move the film into a bigger auditorium for Sunday. Being there good and early meant I was well in time to catch Missionary (Anthony Diblasi). Frightfest doesn’t exclusively screen horror films and Missionary is a well-judged and atmospheric thriller that begins life as a sort of family drama before events begin to turn more and more sinister.
We’re introduced to single mum and son Katherine and Kesley Kingsmen (Dawn Oliveri and Connor Christie) who seem to be getting by whilst trying to reintroduce estranged father Ian (Kip Pardue) back into the family unit. A pair of Mormon missionaries call by one day and the »

The Us is full of iconic filming locations … ideal for a road trip. From Alaska to Texas here are 10 of our favourite movie sights
The Lake House (2006)
So many Chicago hotspots were showcased in this movie – the Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaza, Michigan Avenue, Grant Park, the bridges over the Chicago river. One scene takes Kate (Sandra Bullock) on a walking tour, past stunning examples of local architecture. Christopher Plummer, who plays Alex's (Keanu Reeves) architect father, has one of my favourite lines. He says the most important quality in architecture is "always the light. Always." Take an architecture tour for your own light-filled experience.
The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989)
The scenes in this movie that were filmed in Belltown, Pioneer Square and the Roosevelt Hotel all pull you into this great Pacific Northwest city. »

Mickey Rooney movies on TCM: Music and murder (photo: Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland ca. 1940) Mickey Rooney is Turner Classic Movies’ "Summer Under the Stars" star today, August 13, 2013. According to the IMDb, Mickey Rooney, who turns 93 next September 23, has been featured in more than 250 movies — in shorts and features, in Hollywood and international productions, in cameos and starring roles, in bit parts and second leads. You name it, Rooney has done it: comedies, dramas, thrillers, musicals, biopics, war movies, horse movies, horror movies. (Mickey Rooney: TCM movie schedule.) Mickey Rooney in a horror movie? Yes, in about a dozen of those. Scarier than World War Z, The Conjuring, The Exorcist, and Alien combined were A Family Affair (on TCM earlier today) and ensuing Andy Hardy movies. Creepy stuff. Nearly as frightening are Rooney’s musicals with Judy Garland, one of which TCM presented earlier this morning, Strike Up the Band (1940). Another, »

Comedy Central may not quite be the cable-channel equivalent of a dude adjusting his junk in the way that, say, Spike TV is, but it’s still generally pretty bro-centric. This is, after all, the same institution that brought us The Man Show and helped convince every college-age guy resting his Oakleys on the brim of a baseball cap to yell “I’m Rick James, bitch!” at any available moment.

From reading a brief synopsis online of A Story of Yonosuke, and with its 2 1/2 hour plus runtime, and the fact it is a period piece (taking place in 1987), I was fully expecting a Being There or Forest Gump type parable steeped in a socio-political survey on Japan's economic boom and its downturn in recent years. In a way the film is a parable, but in the subtlest terms. It's a winsome tale about an affable young man named Yonosuke (a funny sounding name, I was told), who is not mentally handicapped nor an ethereal butler who may or may not exist. Rather, he is a regular guy who still manages to touch many lives with his gentle, optimistic nature.Even though the film's...

Cinema is a kind of uber-art form that’s made up of a multitude of other forms of art including writing, directing, acting, drawing, design, photography and fashion. As such, film is, as all cinema aficionados know, a highly collaborative venture.
One of the most consistently fascinating collaborations in cinema is that of the director and actor.
This article will examine some of the great director & actor teams. It’s important to note that this piece is not intended as a film history survey detailing all the generally revered collaborations.
There is a wealth of information and study available on such duos as John Ford & John Wayne, Howard Hawks & John Wayne, Elia Kazan & Marlon Brando, Akira Kurosawa & Toshiro Mifune, Alfred Hitchcock & James Stewart, Ingmar Bergman & Max Von Sydow, Federico Fellini & Giulietta Masina/Marcello Mastroianni, Billy Wilder & Jack Lemmon, Francis Ford Coppola & Al Pacino, Woody Allen & Diane Keaton, Martin Scorsese & Robert DeNiro »

Nick Lachey recently dropped the new 98 Degrees record "2.0," hit the road with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men for The Package Tour and has hosting duties on new NBC series "The Winner Is" and just saw a fourth season of "The Sing-Off" greenlit for later this year – but Lachey says becoming a new dad which is his greatest achievement.
In fact, the 39-year-old pop star was so moved by fatherhood that he squeezed in making a solo lullaby record "A Father's Lullaby'.
HuffPost Canada Music chatted to Nick about reuniting with 98 Degrees, why he loves Canada and fatherhood – from the highs of breakfast bonding with infant Camden, to having to watch his TV host wife Vanessa suffer baby blues.
Camden is gorgeous! Did you always plan to make a lullaby record?
I hadn't considered it but when I found out we were pregnant you start to experience »

For every movie that makes it all the way from someone's brain to the big screen, dozens are doomed to spend eternity in Hollywood purgatory — because, quite frankly, getting a major motion picture made is a total bitch.
Only a small fraction of screenplays ever catch the attention of a studio and get put into production, and as you'll see, even that is no guarantee they'll ever be finished. In the messy, ridiculously complicated and maddening process of getting movies made, sometimes even the best ideas slip through the cracks.
With that in mind, we've assembled a list of 15 potentially great movies that Hollywood has done some serious slacking on.
1. 'The Tourist'
A far cry from the forgettable Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie movie of the same name, "The Tourist" is a famously beautiful script about a group of exiled aliens living human lives in Manhattan — think a darker, »
