Bristol Palin reality TV: Fish out of water in West Hollywood Bar (Video)

23 September 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

The last place you would expect Bristol Palin, the teen mom and daughter of conservative politician Sarah Palin, is at a bar in the predominately gay township of West Hollywood. But there she was, suggestively riding a bar bull a la "Urban Cowboy," teetering and slumping off the bull in the last pass. And then it started. TMZ was there recording the reality TV show segment when someone yelled out something not so nice about Palin's riding style and her mom. Palin marched with her cameras in tow to the bar, and the great WeHo shouting match of 2011 began. "Your mother's a whore," shouted the heckler. "Is that because you are a Homosexual?" replied Palin, who crowded in »

Building A Cinematic Hero: Tmp Interviews Mark Hildebrandt

8 September 2011 9:19 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With all the Marvel and DC films coming out lately, not to mention the new Superman and Batman films on the horizon, the popularity of superhero movies is at an all time high.  Everywhere audience members turn another mainstream actor is gracing the screen in a costume that showcases a massive, ripped physique that mirrors their comic counterpart.  Leave it to the studios to ensure that reality will always imitate art.

But with all the muscle and power on the screen, an audience member has to wonder: just how does an actor like Gerard Butler, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, or even Mickey Rourke or Robert Downey Jr. transform themselves into the larger-than-life heroes so many have followed in the pages of best selling comics and graphic novels.

New York's 39 Hottest Guys in Theater!

2 June 2011 6:11 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A little over two years ago, AfterElton.com brought readers a list of the 37 Hottest Guys in Theater, and since then, the New York Stage has only become increasingly sexified. The lines between Broadway and Hollywood continue to blur, and as young men come to recognition in NYC, they're often quickly whisked away to Tinseltown to showcase not only their amazing talent, but often they're breathtaking good looks.

While it's tempting to include every Hollywood hottie who graces the stage on this list (a certain Lee Pace and Luke Macfarlane spring to mind), the point here is to honor the men who are mostly known for rockin' the live stages here in New York.

And so, without further ado, we present, in alphabetical order, the list (39!) of this year's hottest guys in theater!

A perennial AfterElton favorite, the muscular, openly gay Nick first made waves a few years »

Glenn Wants To Continue Active Lifestyle As Long As He Lives

26 April 2011 6:31 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Veteran actor Scott Glenn is refusing to take heed of his doctor's advice and quit performing his own movie stunts after undergoing surgery for a shoulder injury for a second time.

The Silence of the Lambs star, 70, has continued to take on action roles in films such as The Bourne Ultimatum and this year's Sucker Punch, despite his advancing age, and he also enjoys an active lifestyle when he's not in front of the cameras, indulging in his love of climbing, skydiving and motorbike racing.

He insists the adrenaline rush he experiences while living on the edge is what gives him the zest for life - and he has no intention of letting a few bumps and bruises slow him down.

Glenn tells WENN, "The one sort of quandary that I have right now is I'm this old fart with grandkids but, in terms of the parts I'm offered, kids still know who I am and get it. I don't sit behind a desk and give orders or hobble out to sit on a rocking chair and read books.

"I go deep water spear diving and climbing and still get track days on motorcycles and live a very physical life. There aren't that many parts around that reflect that.

"Physical injury is part of the price you pay for doing these things. I'm onto a second shoulder surgery and my orthopedic surgeon thought it was the end of my hopping onto my Ducati (motorbike) and going down to the racetrack. I said, 'No, if I bottom out I'll see you in the hospital again!'...

"I've probably been hurt more seriously making movies than anything else. In Urban Cowboy I got a concussion, a cracked collarbone. I did a terrible movie in Europe where I was jumping between buildings and I tore my back up; my lat (upper back) muscles completely separated. I got burned doing Backdraft when they set me on fire and it kind of got out of hand.

"I probably paid a physical price more for my art than I have for the sports I do, which is crazy. I'm very lucky too. I've gotten away with way more than I probably should have." »

Dancing With the Stars: Did the Right Couple Go Home This Week?

19 April 2011 7:44 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Now that we’ve had a full day to digest Monday night’s eight-course tribute to Uncle Sam(ba) — complete with “Urban Cowboy” and “Stars & Stripes” attire — is anyone else feeling gobsmacked that we’re already halfway to crowning a successor to season 11 champ Jennifer Gray? Funny how time flies when you’re pondering Ralph Macchio’s secrets to eternal youth. Then again, doesn’t it feel like six seasons (or at least six months) since “Psycho” Mike Catherwood (more about him in a minute!) stumbled his way through the jive? Such is the power of Dancing With The Stars »

Dallas 2011: Critic's Notebook

8 April 2011 12:19 PM, PDT | GreenCine Daily | See recent GreenCine Daily news »

by Steve Dollar

Nothing really says Texas like Jerry Jeff Walker. Even though he was born (as Wikipedia informs us) Ronald Clyde Crosby in Oneonta, New York, his troubadour path led him from Greenwich Village to New Orleans and then to Austin, where he became supreme commander of The Lost Gonzo Band, inventing an intoxicated post-hippie vision of honky-tonk epitomized in songs like "Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother" and "London Homesick Blues"—with its immortal and besotted wish upon a Lone Star to "go home with the armadillo." Funny enough, Walker didn't write some of his most famous hits, which speaks to the collaborative nature of the 1970s Texas songwriter scene, but he did pen "Mr. Bojangles," the uber-sentimental portrait of a New Orleans street performer he met in a jail cell for which millions across the globe can either love him or hate him.

Ok, Buckaroos, the Walker »

Californication Review: "Lawyers, Guns, and Money"

13 February 2011 6:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

On "Lawyers, Guns and Money," Hank Moody doing a PSA was a rich concept. It would be akin to seeing if Charlie Sheen is available to talk about the dangers of hookers and blow because, like they say, “The More You Know.”

My worst fear came to fruition on this episode, though, as apparently we have seen the last of Sasha. There are so many things I will miss about her, but two stand out.

Karen prescribed the perfect remedy for Hank’s social malady: get his head out of his ass. Hank lost his charm switch, but it also seemed like he lost something else. I got the feeling that he very easily could have just packed it in and gone off the deep end.

Hank always struck me as the guy who would try anything twice. I don’t think we’ll see him in the ER again any time soon, »

The Coens have given the western teeth

10 January 2011 7:56 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

… but here's hoping they don't follow it with another duff comedy like Burn After Reading

It was always going to happen. As the climax of the Coen brothers' 26-year-long, sidling, digression-filled crabwalk towards the pure, distilled essence of Hollywood classicism in their film-making – which they first perfected in No Country For Old Men – the final obstacle facing them was the western, the greatest of all American genres. And now, with True Grit – which opened in the Us last month to rapturous acclaim – they have taken it, a genre oft-presumed deader than Custer and Crazy Horse, and given it back its heart, soul and teeth.

They've been pawing the sand with their hooves before the western for most of their creative lives; its forms and structures, its rites and rituals, and all its cultural and cinematic reverberations can be discerned throughout their work. No Country For Old Men is as surely »
