Vancouver - It's no wonder that Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and James Franco finish each other's sentences. The former two grew up together in Vancouver, have collaborated on scripts since they were 12 years old. Rogen produced and co-starred in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," which filmed 10 years ago; it also cast James Franco, the first of many creative starts for the two of them. For 2013's "This Is The End," Goldberg and Rogen co-directed, Rogen and Franco co-starred -- the same as the setup to forthcoming comedy "The Interview." "Basically until [Sony Pictures] saw 'This is the End, we didn’t know if they’d let us direct another movie," Rogen explained. "So, once they saw it, they decided they would let us direct another movie." Goldberg and Rogen headed back home to Vancouver to shoot much of this action-oriented flick, with the story set mostly in North Korea. Franco with them -- »

The celebrated musician has been very candid about her drug use, and the sad story of a silent movie actress who inspired her to kick the addiction.
In a recent interview with Billboard, singer Stevie Nicks talked about her turbulent past with the band Fleetwood Mac, and about the massive cocaine addiction she used to have that, according to Nicks, could have easily killed her.
Interviewer Rob Tannenbaum asked Nicks, "Didn't a doctor warn you in the '80s that if you did one more line of coke, you might have a heart attack?"
"He said I'd have a brain hemorrhage, actually," Nicks responded.

Vanessa Williams is engaged! The actress shared the good news during a taping of The Queen Latifah Show and revealed her very big, and very stunning, engagement ring from fiancé Jim Skrip. "I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen while I've been on this lovely trip. I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings on this trip," Williams gushed on the daytime talk show. "I'm happy for you, you know I'm always happy for you," Latifah replied. During an appearance on a recent episode of Oprah's Master Class, Williams recalled her difficult past and explained how she's »
The New York Film Festival starts today, and with it critics and industry members will get their first look at Gone Girl and Inherent Vice, leaving only a few studio tent poles remaining throughout the fall. They’ll also get a renewed look at Mr. Turner, Foxcatcher, and Birdman, so expect those to be back in the conversation soon.
One of the most interesting barometers for predicting the race is Movie City News’ Gurus ‘O Gold chart, a poll of all the Oscar pundits to determine the top contenders to win. They made their picks before the festivals and now after them, and they’ve got Boyhood perched atop the pedestal with the sight-unseen Unbroken, Interstellar and Gone Girl rounding out the Top 10.
This week however, all the previous week’s ranking contenders are gone from the charts in this slow week between festivals. They’ll be back with a »

When you’re asked if you want to go to lunch with Adam Pally, the first thing you do is say yes. Then, from there, you and Adam can probably figure the rest of it out, in terms of what you want to talk about, what you can eat at 11 a.m., etc. In fact, your lunch might end up going a little something like this …
Having lunch at 11 a.m. can feel a bit odd, but it’s a fact that Pally will acknowledge before ordering lobster anyway.
Entertainment Weekly: So how are things going? When did you get here? »

Last September, Oprah Winfrey ("The Butler") was the far-away frontrunner for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar according to Gold Derby's 2013 racetrack odds. She seemed like such a lock for the Oscar that Expert Tariq Khan (Fox News) even wrote up 5 reasons why Oprah would win. Unfortunately for Winfrey, she was snubbed on nominations morning; the trophy eventually went to Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave"). Let that be a lesson to all of the Oscar watchers out there. Even though Patricia Arquette ("Boyhood") currently has the overwhelming support of our Experts, Editors and Users to win Best Supporting Actress, there are still several months to go this Oscar derby. Just like Winfrey did last year, could Arquette be peaking too soon? -Break- Patricia Arquette goes supporting at Oscars for 'Boyhood' (Exclusive) There is strong sense of groupthink that often occurs amongst critics and Oscarologists »
The Voice launches its seventh season next week, with Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams joining the well-established buddy comedy that is Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. At a press luncheon for the show earlier this month, the coaches and host Carson Daly—minus Williams—discussed the new group’s dynamic and how Levine and Shelton welcomed the two newcomers into the fold. (Levine claimed to be nice; Shelton said “I’m going to beat you.”) Stefani also revealed she has a great description of Williams up her well-tailored sleeve. (She was wearing pinstripes; Levine wore a Hawaiian shirt.) Here are »

It seems like Robin Thicke went from having the best year of his life to his absolute worst. Following the massive success of his hit "Blurred Lines" in 2013, which went to number one in more than 100 countries, his wife Paula Patton left him amidst his alleged infidelities. Now he's caught up in a legal battle with the family of Marvin Gaye, who claim he ripped off the beat for "Blurred Lines" from Gaye's song, "Got to Give It Up." And on Monday, court documents revealed that Thicke has also been battling a problem with drugs and alcohol. In the deposition that went public Monday, »

The post-Barbara Walters version of The View made its premiere Monday on ABC, using Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" to greet the new panel: "The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate… I shake it off, shake it off." This seems like a rather defensive posture for a show starting its 18th season. But then again. Other than new host Rosie Perez talking about how she learned kung fu "just in case I had to kick some ass," the hour didn't go too well. It was stiff, polite and airless, like one of those Taiwanese parody cartoons that "dramatize" news scandals. »

In 1987, A Different World debuted as simply a Cosby Show spinoff. But by 1991, the show starring Jasmine Guy and Kadeem Hardison had surpassed Cosby in the ratings and earned an EW cover story touting it as “an ensemble comedy about black college life that’s brightly acted, politically and socially attuned, idiosyncratic, and yes, even funny.”
The cast members are reuniting for the Oct. 26 episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, which returns with new installments on Oct. 5. Watch a sneak peek below, in which they talk about inspiring a generation to attend college and fondly recall how creator Bill Cosby ends conversations. »

The second season of “The Queen Latifah Show” premieres on Monday with not only a new look, but with twists in store for guests and viewers. Queen Latifah talked to Variety about her motivations for hosting a talkshow, what audiences can expect from the new season, being a hip-hop kid at heart and her HBO biopic on Bessie Smith.
What originally inspired you to do a talkshow?
Honestly, a lot of people had come to me about doing a talkshow since everyone found out that Oprah was going off the air. Everybody was kind of rushing to fill that vacuum and we saw a lot of people have come and gone and tried, and I think you have to take your time. No one else is Oprah, there is only one Oprah and there is no such thing as the next Oprah. Oprah is still busy being Oprah. So I »

Robin Thicke admitted he was high during most of his interviews that took place in the past year and claimed he didn’t write his hit song “Blurred Lines” in a deposition revealed in federal court on Monday.
Robin Thicke Says He Did Not Write 'Blurred Lines'
Thicke and his “Blurred Lines” collaborator Pharrell Williams gave their depositions in April with regards to a suit from the children of Marvin Gaye, who claim “Blurred Lines” is a rip-off of Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got To Give It Up.” The complaint is actually in response to a lawsuit filed by Williams and Thicke in August of 2013 to declare “noninfringement.”
In the depositions recently made public, Thicke said that it was Williams who actually wrote the entire song, without any help from the singer. When questioned about a comment made in an interview with GQ, where Thicke directly cited Marvin Gaye’s “Got »
While Miss America hasn’t bred any headline-stealing celebrities recently, beauty pageants were once a place where future stars got their start. Oprah was Miss Black Tennessee; Halle Berry was Miss Ohio. Vanessa Williams made it all the way to the top, nabbing the Miss America title in 1984.
With Miss America’s 88th annual pageant airing Sunday on ABC at 9 p.m. Et, EW took a look at the most famous Oscar winners and television icons who once won crowns and sashes:

Borderline personality disorder turns out to be more of a laughing matter than it probably should be in “Welcome to Me,” a strange and often startlingly inspired media/mental-illness comedy directed by actress-filmmaker Shira Piven. After drifting into a semi-dramatic mode in her earlier Toronto-premiered indies, “Hateship Loveship” and “Girl Most Likely,” , where she proceeds to work through her deep-seated emotional and psychological wounds on live TV. At 86 minutes, this breezily bonkers item doesn’t overstay its, er, welcome, spelling a possible warm reception in niche theatrical and VOD play.
The chief virtue of Eliot Laurence’s first-produced screenplay is not just its simple yet comically fertile premise, but also the brisk and blithely implausible manner in which it’s presented. This is not a movie that wastes any time trying to explain itself. Not long after she’s introduced watching her massive VHS collection of infomercials and “Oprah” reruns »

The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.
“The day it happened, I was definitely crying,” O’Donnell recalls. “I got my stuff and walked out.” She phoned her longtime publicist, Cindi Berger, telling her: “‘I’m never going back. You have to call and tell them. Call the lawyer. No matter what they say, I will not go back.”
But this is daytime TV after all. And in a plot twist worthy of “All My Children, »

“I am walrus, hear me blubber” might be the mantra of Kevin Smith’s “Tusk,” And yet there’s much good humor, too, in Smith’s latest low-budget indie, which reunites the director with his “Red State” star Michael Parks, who’s gifted here with the sort of tailor-made, career-capping role most actors die waiting for Quentin Tarantino to give them. He’d be worth the price of admission alone, but “Tusk” has other surprises up its pelt, including a pseudonymous special guest star who gives the movie a shot in the arm just when it needs one. Twenty years on from “Clerks” — and amid occasional threats of retirement — Smith has delivered a left-field surprise that ranks among his very best work, though how such an oddity plays in today’s marketplace (where innovative distrib A24 releases it Sept. 19) is anybody’s guess.
The 74-year-old Parks has played in more »
