There’s a BoJack Horseman Christmas Special

19 December 2014 12:35 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Surprise! There's a BoJack Horseman Christmas special now on Netflix. There's a gentle framing with BoJack's assistant Todd wanting to partake in some kind of holiday ritual, but the bulk of the special is an episode of BoJack's crappy '90s family sitcom Horsin' Around — straight out of the Tgif/Growing Pains/Family Ties/Charles in Charge world. It's a largely stand-alone episode, but like all things BoJack there are jokes and ideas that will only really make sense if you watch the whole series. Context or not, though, the kid-actor name "Bradley Hitler-Smith" is a miniature masterpiece. »

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now

9 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.

The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.

Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.

The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is

currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:

1. Zach Galligan

Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

Leonardo DiCaprio's On-Off Girlfriend: 'I Always Wanted 4 Kids'

9 December 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Toni Garrn might want four kids, but her on-again, off-again boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio may have his hands full with 20 models.

Garrn, who has been dating the 40-year-old actor for two years, admits to GQ magazine that, despite her own jet-setting ways, she eventually wants a family.

"I never just do nothing. A weekend off?! Let's go somewhere. Let's fly somewhere," she said. "I kind of know one day I'll have responsibilities and not be able to do this. But I don't have a dog. I don't even have a plant. I have nothing to take care of, which I love."

That sounds perfect for DiCaprio's lifestyle, but then the model added, "I'm a family person, and I always wanted four kids. But we'll see. We'll start with one at some point, I don't know."

Kirk Cameron Tried To Cheat Rotten Tomatoes, It Did Not Go Well

25 November 2014 3:15 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Kirk Cameron has unashamedly tried to improve the rating of his latest film Surviving Christmas on Rotten Tomatoes by asking his legion of Facebook fans to visit the website and support the project. Unfortunately for the actor, his ploy was far from successful. Saving Christmas has been savaged by critics ever since it was released earlier this month. In fact, its average rating on the film review aggregation website has been a meager two out of 10. In an attempt to raise the film's profile, star Kirk Cameron has tried to fight back against his many, many haters by turning to his supporters on Facebook. The former Growing Pains star has close to 2 million followers on the social networking website, and has declared a call to arms in an attempt to "storm the gates of Rotten Tomatoes!" You can read his valiant message in its entirety below. (function(d, s, id »

The Growing Pains star, an Evangelical Christian, posted a Facebook video on Tuesday that he captioned: "Calling all moms, wives and keepers of your home -- I made this video for you, to remind you of how irreplaceable you are to your family this Christmas."

Why Leonardo DiCaprio Didn't Want Mark Wahlberg In The Basketball Diaries

12 November 2014 10:50 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Picture it. It's 1994. You're Leonardo DiCaprio. You've just made the leap from your successful stint on television's popular family sitcom Growing Pains to film with noteworthy turns in This Boy's Life with Robert De Niro and What's Eating Gilbert Grape with Johnny Depp. Now you're being told your next film will co-star that pant-drooping, often shirtless, always swaggering rap star/underwear model Marky Mark. You might not be happy. DiCaprio certainly wasn't. And Mark Wahlberg knows it. While doing the press rounds for his upcoming effort The Gambler, Mark Wahlberg looked back on his time making the 1995 biopic, The Basketball Diaries. Based on the Jim Carroll memoir, the film starred Leonardo DiCaprio as a tough New York kid with the heart of a poet. But when the critically acclaimed ingendude found out Wahlberg was up for a supporting role, he wasn.t having it. "Leonardo said, .No way, I.m »

From Teen Heartthrob to A-List Actor -- Leonardo DiCaprio Turns 40!

11 November 2014 11:45 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

In an industry filled with failed child stars, Leonardo DiCaprio is a rare success story.The actor is one of the few who was able to transition from kid actor to teen heartthrob to respected A-lister unlike anyone before him -- and today, he turns 40!Hard to believe the kid who got his start in projects like "Critters 3" and "Growing Pains" has become one of Hollywood's most bankable stars and a five-time Oscar nominee.While he had critically acclaimed parts in "Romeo + Juliet" and "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?", it was the role of Jack Dawson in "Titanic" that made him "King of the World" in 1997 -- launching him to a new level of fame he probably never expected.These days he balances films like "The Wolf of Wall Street" with his philanthropic work, recently speaking at the Un about climate change and doing what he can to support wildlife. »

Watch a 16-Year-Old Leonardo DiCaprio Adorably Spoil The Final Season of ‘Growing Pains’

11 November 2014 9:02 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Leonardo DiCaprio turns 40 today -- and to celebrate, we've uncovered our very first interview with the academy award nominee from 1991.

Even when he was just 16 years old, Leo was just as charming as ever when Et caught up with him on the set of Growing Pains. But while he was as cute as a button, he didn't quite have the whole interview thing down to a tee yet -- which make these innocent and adorable goofs a must-see.

At one point, Leo gives away slightly too much information on his character's story-line, causing an off-camera publicist to chime in and say, "Excuse me, Leonardo, we don't want to reveal all that."

The actor's response? Some infectious yet mischievous giggling while muttering, "Oh...you're right!" Leo then hand-motioned to zip his own lips.

Kirk Cameron's Christmas Movie Is Coming And Its Trailer Is Outlandish

11 November 2014 5:22 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Have you ever wondered what A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas might look like if Pax (now Ion) TV remade it? Well, wonder no more thanks to Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas. The trailer for this limited release "comedy" can be watched below, and it plays like the raunchy holiday laffer minus the drug use, cursing, violence, sex, and debauched child star Neil Patrick Harris. Instead, you get child star turned evangelist Kirk Cameron, saving Christmas. Fandango drew our attention to this soon-to-open Christmas movie, and the title has us asking, is it Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas like Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas? Or is it like Kirk Cameron Is Saving Christmas? Really it may be both, as it's not just a movie fronted by the former star of Growing Pains, but also one in which he plays a character named Kirk.

How Leonardo DiCaprio Went From Teen Heartthrob to Sexy Leading Man

11 November 2014 3:05 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Leonardo DiCaprio celebrates his 40th birthday this week, which got us thinking about how many years he's been on the Hollywood scene. We still remember when Growing Pains welcomed DiCaprio into the family as Luke - because he stole our hearts pretty much immediately. It only got better from there, as DiCaprio charmed us in movies like Romeo + Juliet, Catch Me If You Can, and, of course, Titanic, all the way to The Great Gatsby. Take a look at some of his most memorable roles. »

Celebrate Leo's Birthday With 40 Years of Hotness

11 November 2014 1:52 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is celebrating his 40th birthday tomorrow, and we're not quite sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, we can't believe that the little guy from Growing Pains has built such an illustrious film career, but on the other, it makes us feel pretty ancient. After all, watching Titanic on VHS and listening to the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack on repeat feels like yesterday. Despite his constant Hollywood presence and multitude of Teen Beat covers, Leo successfully escaped the child star curse. And even though that Oscar statue still eludes him, we can all agree that Leo has become one of the most talented and sought-after actors of our time. In honor of his big day, we've charted Leo's evolution from teenage dream to A-list heartthrob. Keep reading to see the full transformation. »

Listed: Leonardo DiCaprio's Top 5 Roles

10 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

November 11, 2014 marks a big milestone birthday for heartthrob-turned-serious-thespian Leonardo Dicaprio. That's right, ladies and gentleman, today "Growing Pains'" Luke Brower turns the big 4-0.

Not too long ago the infectious and now sadly-cancelled sitcom "Happy Endings" used Leo as a point of reference for just how many women their newly-back-on-the-scene friend was dating - as in, was he pulling DiCaprio-level numbers? And hearing the playful jab reminded us that it's been quite some time since Leo's bag was being a solid actor who dated models. A lot of models. But not quite long enough that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were going to let a moment at this year's Golden Globes pass without a little, still relevant jab.

The former dreamboat was the stuff of teengirl-worship for a good few years until a man named Martin Scorsese came into his life and introduced movie audiences to Leo The Serious »
