John Cena has many talents — he can act, wrestle and rap — and on Wednesday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon he demonstrated yet another skill: Cena plays a mean game of Mad Libs.

In a special holiday-themed edition of the Fallon segment "Mad Libs Theater," Cena stunned Fallon with answers, including "Jimmybillbob" as a name, "falafel" as a swear word and a Rob Roy as a type of drink. When asked to give advice he would give to a teenager, Cena quoted S.E. Hinton's classic novel The Outsiders, answering, "Stay golden, Ponyboy."

How weird does a celebrity have to be before we stop watching their films?

All celebrities are a bit weird, so when one is known for being Weird Even For A Celebrity, you know they are probably crossing over to ‘actually quite scary’

Of the many deeply uncool things I am obsessed with – The Golden Girls, the oeuvre of Roxette, Princess Anne’s hair – the uncoolest is also the one that has been with me the longest. Tom Cruise has been a part of my mental landscape ever since I was old enough to read in a magazine that I was supposed to fancy him. I was alive in the 80s and, as strange as this is now to think about, what with his deeply unsexy obsession since with thetans, back then he was very much pitched as Mr Sexxxxxy. Which is even stranger when you think that Cruise didn’t even grow into his face for another decade: back in Risky Business and The Outsiders,

Sanfic: Matt Dillon Talks Creative Processes, Upcoming Von Trier Thriller, ‘The House That Jack Built’

Sanfic: Matt Dillon Talks Creative Processes, Upcoming Von Trier Thriller, ‘The House That Jack Built’
Santiago De Chile — In town for a series of events at the Sanfic Santiago Intl. Film Festival, Matt Dillon addressed the assembled press at the Hyatt Hotel in downtown Santiago.

Dressed in all black, Dillon entered the press-room to a resounding wave of camera clicks. Taken aback, the actor backtracked, and made a better prepared entrance, begging the pardon of the assembled crowd.

Throughout the hour-long event Dillon fielded questions fired at him in much the same way, often taking breaks to think, double back, and reinvest more thoughtfulness in his answers that a rapid fire response might not allow. It was as if he treated each answer he gave as the most important of the afternoon, taking special care to avoid especially inflammatory or frivolous topics.

Dillon’s career has spanned more than three decades and from 1983’s “The Outsiders,” to 2005’s “Factotum,” Dillon’s films have frequently received critical and festival acclaim. In

Interview: Outsiders author S.E. Hinton is still gold after 50 years

In 1967, Tulsa teenager Susie Hinton published her first novel, The Outsiders. The first-person narrative of Ponyboy Curtis discussed his brothers and friends in the Greasers as they faced off against the local rich kids, the Socs. The novel has never been out of print, having sparked a sense of identification with the first teenagers who read it, and every generation since. The book was also made into a now-legendary movie in 1983, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring seemingly every young actor in Hollywood at the time, including Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, and Tom Cruise. The success of The Outsiders helped boost the popularity of Hinton’s subsequent books like Tex, Rumble Fish, and That Was Then, This Is Now, all of which were also made into films.

For the 50th anniversary of The Outsiders, the author formally known as S.E. Hinton undertook a book ...

Trevor Reviews Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish [Criterion Collection Blu-Ray Review]

In 1983, while adapting The Outsiders, S.E. Hinton’s famous novel about young, full-blooded Oklahoma gangs with names like Ponyboy and Sodapop, Francis Ford Coppola was dissatisfied. He didn’t like the style of his adaptation, finding the color and direction too saccharine; here was a film about hard times that risked making those times look like the good old days. During production he started reading another S.E. Hinton young adult book about young, full-blooded Oklahoma gangs with names like Motorcycle Boy, Smokey, and Rusty James: Rumble Fish. While finishing work on the former, Coppola dreamed of filming the latter, which he found personal and saw as the perfect avenue for artistic expression.

The story of Rumble Fish takes us back to the rougher, poorer areas of Tulsa, Oklahoma. High schooler Rusty James is trying to fill a hole that started to fill up space when his brother, Motorcycle Boy,

Exclusive: Rob Lowe Reacts to Being Kate Beckinsale's Teenage Crush: 'She's One of My Favorites'
Kate Beckinsale revealed recently on Instagram that she had a crush on Rob Lowe as a teenager, and it turns out, the feeling is mutual.

Last week, Beckinsale disclosed her crush by sharing a photo of a postcard she wrote as if it was from Lowe. The note read: "Dear Kate, Yes I will marry you. See you soon. Love, Rob."

"Either I was a really tragic 13 year old with time on my hands." Beckinsale quipped in the caption, "Or Rob Lowe was all kinds of casual proposing marriage via a postcard of himself, signing his last name And drawing a dick instead of using a stamp. (found at my mum's

Pick of the WeekCatfight

What is it? Two old college friends cross paths as adults and beat the ever-loving crap out of each other.

Why see it? Onur Tukel’s latest is also his best thanks in part to the lead performances by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche. They do a good job of manipulating our sympathies and concerns ensuring that our loyalties shift from act to act. Themes of female friendships, class distinctions, and redemption run through alongside a satirical look at modern life, and there’s a terrifically wicked streak throughout. Funny, smart, and brutal are all apt descriptors for this cynical look at our violent selves.

Blu-ray Review: Rumble Fish, Innocence Dies A Lonely Death In Tulsa

As much as I love movies, and that is a lot or I wouldn't be here, there are certain things that turn me off almost immediately. Francis Ford Coppola's Rumble Fish, a kind of response to the populist storytelling of his infinitely more successful The Outsiders, does almost every single thing that I hate about consciously artistic films. Yet, here I sit, in awe. Rumble Fish takes S.E. Hinton's novel and turns it into an exercise in artifice, utilizing black and white photography to immerse the audience in the world of its color-blind muse, The Motorcycle Boy, and an aggressively avant-garde rhytmic soundtrack that turns the film into what should be an interminably long jazz exploration. So far, that's two strikes on the list of...

Rob Lowe's Sons Reveal How Their Dad Embarrasses Them: 'He's Like a Man Child'
Rob Lowe has a strong bond with his two sons, Matthew and John Owen, but that doesn't mean he doesn't embarrass them from time to time.

"He's like a man child," John Owen says of his dad on Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "He's a teenager trapped in a 53-year-old's body."

He adds, "If I'm in a crowd and he's anywhere nearby, he will scream at the top of his lungs my least favorite nicknames, and they're really embarrassing."

'The Outsiders': THR's 1983 Review

'The Outsiders': THR's 1983 Review
On March 25, 1983, Francis Ford Coppola and Warner Bros. brought The Outsiders adaptation to theaters, featuring a cast that included many rising stars. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

Francis Coppola's first directorial effort since Apocalypse Now and One From the Heart is a curiously unconvincing excursion into a (supposed) teenager's world, circa 1966, that will need massive support from high schoolers, circa 1983, to pay off in its initial runs.

The fact that its lineage somersaults from the S.E. Hinton book that has had wide popularity with youthful readers since it was initially published in 1967 means a plus,...

Film Review: ‘California Dreams’

Film Review: ‘California Dreams’
Destitute and clinging to threadbare hope, an aspiring Hollywood high-flyer rehearses her Oscar speech at one point in Mike Ott’s is-it-or-isn’t-it docufiction “California Dreams” — though as her earnest sentiments gush forth, it’s entirely someone else’s acceptance speech that springs poignantly to mind. “You can’t trade in your dream for another dream,” said Viola Davis at the SAG Awards a few years back, and so it proves for the troubled human subjects of Ott’s film: a ragtag ensemble of small-time underachievers whose shared, cherished fantasy of making it in the movies gets them up in the morning, but not much further than that. Well, they’re in a movie now: As is Ott’s wont, “California Dreams” blurs the line between simulated vérité and authentic observation, making it often impossible to tell whether those on camera are playing themselves, simply being themselves or a combination of the two.

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: Looking back on 50 years of The Outsiders

It’s been 50 years since the first publication of The Outsiders, a small novel that rocked the publishing industry and arguably set the stage for the Ya genre as a whole. Susan Eloise Hinton was an Oklahoma teenager (who had just failed a creative writing class) when she wrote her first novel. It describes a gang of lost boys who form their own family as they face off against rival gang the Socs. Hinton was only 18 when the novel was released, and it has sold millions of copies since then and is still required reading in many schools. Cementing the novel’s legendary status was its 1983 film adaptation by Francis Ford Coppola, starring the brightest young stars of the day, like Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Diane Lane, and a young Tom Cruise at the start of his career.
