Bill Wolff is departing his post as exec producer of ABC’s “The View,” the latest shakeup on the daytime series that has had nothing but turmoil in front of and behind the camera during the past two years.
ABC has yet to line up a permanent replacement for Wolff, who will remain at the helm through the end of September to see the show through the launch of its 19th season with a revamped panel of hosts. Candi Carter, an “Oprah Winfrey Show” alum who recently joined as a consulting producer, will serve as interim showrunner until a successor is named.
Wolff joined “View” last summer after serving as exec producer of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” His departure from the show had been expected after the show endured a rocky first season following the retirement of its founder, Barbara Walters.
Last week, “View” unveiled its host lineup »

Like most talented performers who’ve doubled as quintessential movie stars, Tom Cruise doesn’t always get the chance to demonstrate that he can actually act. There’s often just too much Tom Cruise in the way for people to notice, especially when he lets his erratic personal life take center stage. Putting together an “essential” list for such an actor is a bit of a tightrope act, walking the line between crowd pleasing star turns and performances of real substance. That said, here are ten Tom Cruise films that are not to be missed:
Risky Business (1983) – The early 80s were awash in teen sex comedies, most of which have justifiably faded from memory. Then there’s Risky Business, which not only rose above the pack, but made an indelible mark on pop culture history. It wasn’t Tom Cruise’s first movie, but it might as well have been: »

Oprah is the billionaire queen of media, but she's still no match for royalty when it comes to sailing the Mediterranean. The Big O and gal pal Gayle King were spotted off the coast of Ibiza on The Rising Sun, billionaire David Geffen’s $200 million superyacht. They've vacationed on it before ... and looking at Rising Sun's stats it's not hard to see why Oprah's back aboard. It's loaded with a basketball court, helipad, wine cellar, »

After 16 years of being mad as hell, Jon Stewart finally doesn't have to take it any anymore. On his emotional farewell to The Daily Show, he didn't even try to hide his relief that he can now go entire weeks at a time without watching Fox News. The last shebang had a roll call of Daily Show superstars, along with Bruce Springsteen doing "Land of Hope and Dreams." John McCain said, "So long, jackass." (All these years later and McCain still can't keep his Nineties MTV comedy bros straight — Jackass was Johnny Knoxville, »

On Thursday, Fox announced that pop sensation Pitbull would be the latest celebrity to guest-star on Empire. Unlike many other musician-actors who appeared on the first season, he'll get to play himself, and perform the song “No Doubt About It” with Jussie Smollett's character, Jamal. Pitbull will have to fight to distinguish himself among the wide roster of celebrity guest-stars, which so far include Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, Marisa Tomei, Oprah, Chris Rock, and maybe even the elusive chanteuse Mariah Carey. In the spirit of Oprah: "You get a cameo! And you get a cameo! Everyone gets a cameo!" »

In what is almost certainly the setup to a hilarious punch line only he knows, the pope has invited Oprah, Matt Damon, Ari Emanuel, David Geffen, and Brian Grazer to walk into a bar the Vatican. According to THR, they're all on the short list for Pope Francis's planned meeting with Hollywood big shots sometime in the fall, where the Cool Pope will reportedly try to convince the entertainment industry that the Catholic Church is cool, too. We can't forecast exactly how those talks will go, but we're confident the whole trip will end with the appearance of a 12-inch pianist. »

When the singer wasn't posing for sexy snaps - and proving she's worthy of her spot on the publication's international best dressed list - pop's new princess chatted about everything from her new friendship with Kanye West to why she admires Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie.

This inaugural edition of The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema – mainly the new Star Wars Universe reports, details on Jurassic World 2, the first image from Wolverine 3, Tom Cruise going sequel crazy and a whole load of superhero stuff.
Here’s a brief peak behind the movie news site business’ cinema drapes – any articles with the words ‘Star Wars‘ in the title tend to get tonnes of page views. That’s why some sites make up headlines. Whether that includes this latest Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One rumour about Felicity Jones’ character being the daughter of one of the series’ most famous villains, or whether Lucasfilm are working on three live-action Star Wars series for Netflix, this column couldn’t possibly say (for more news from a galaxy far, far away, check out The Week in Star Wars). It can, however, say this:

Since 2006, Tom Cruise has been reduced to, for lack of a better phrase, a global joke; a quick source for derision, slander, and mockery among the A-List Hollywood performers for the masses to prod at. There was his Jumping the Couch moment on Oprah, the uncomfortable Scientology interview, his termination with Paramount studios, and M:i:iii underperforming at the box office. In short, 2006 was not a good year for the iconic A-Lister.
Despite such set-backs Cruise still produces and stars in critically and financially successful movies, which proves his presence in Hollywood is unscathed. One needs only to look at 2011’s Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which would become Cruise’s highest grossing film to date, or the last few films that have received critical acclaim i.e. Edge of Tomorrow. Further, when one looks at Cruise’s career, one gets a sense that »

Just when Tom Cruise had been written off as an action star, he makes a triumphant comeback — at age 53 — with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” The summer’s most entertaining popcorn movie not only eclipses “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Jurassic World” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” with its action sequences, it also brings to mind Cruise’s prime days (“Top Gun,” “Jerry Maguire,” etc.) on the Hollywood A-list.
Here are five reasons “Mission: Impossible 5” is the strongest film in Paramount’s 19-year-old spy franchise.
(1)It’s sleeker than any James Bond movie you can remember.
The first “Mission: Impossible,” which opened nearly two decades ago in 1996, was a standard bigscreen reboot of a TV show. But the franchise received a jolt in 2006 with J.J. Abrams’ “Mission Impossible 3,” which interwove the heart-pumping twists of “Alias” (season one) into a theatrical recipe that could give Daniel Craig as 007 a run for his money. »

The Oprah Winfrey Network has ordered a megachurch drama straight to series.
“Greenleaf” comes from the mind of writer-producer Craig Wright (“Six Feet Under,” “Lost”) and explores the titular family and its Memphis megachurch, which acts as the center of a community for thousands of predominantly African-American parishioners. Scandals and secrets lie beneath its sprawling surface, however. The series is a multigenerational family drama at heart.
“When I first read the script, I instantly felt an affinity for the characters and loved Craig’s creative vision for a fictional drama on an epic scale,” Oprah Winfrey said. “This show is going to be a fun ride and will hopefully have viewers on the edge of their pews week after week.”
Wright was also executive producer for FX’s “Tyrant,” another series following a family with dark secrets.
“To tell this potentially explosive story with Oprah, a partner who has as »
