Eighties movie classic Dirty Dancing has given us so many gems, and now, singer Ryan Adams has resuscitated one of the film's songs for a soulful cover. While on tour, Adams and Natalie Prass covered the song, originally sung by Patrick Swayze. They're totally earnest, and the duet is beautiful, but there are some cute moments in their performance with a couple of giggles. »
[Youtube "Sp_8WpHQapM"] There are some things that not even Thor's muscles can accomplish. Chris Hemsworth is hosting Saturday Night Live this week. While he's clearly got the action and comedy genres down pat, he may need a refresher on romance.In promos for the upcoming episode, SNL cast member Kate McKinnon asks Hemsworth, 31, to reenact the famous Dirty Dancing lift. It does not go well for McKinnon. She also challenges People's reigning Sexiest Man Alive to an arm-wrestling match, which is actually just her excuse to get her hands on him - it's "a classic McKinnon trick." Thanks for the tip, »

"There's something I've always wanted to do, and you're the perfect host," Kate tells the "Thor" star in the clip, before prepping for the infamous move.

With Chris Hemsworth hosting "Saturday Night Live," we're in for a real treat! The "Thor" star is set to host the late night comedy show on Saturday and he gave fans a taste of what to expect in a promotional trailer featuring "SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon. In the promo, the hot actor pokes fun at his famous superhero character, brother Liam Hemsworth and even puts McKinnon in a choke hold! The funny lady asks the hunky Australian to recreate the iconic "Dirty Dancing" lift with her ... but the actor ends up fumbling the move because he's never even seen the 80's flick! "Chris there's something I've always wanted to do and you're the perfect host," McKinnon tells Chris. "I want to attempt the 'Dirty Dancing' lift." Kate attempts the move and that's when his bulging biceps end up locked around her neck. "You've never seen Dirty Dancing, have you? »

In the comments of last week’s recap, commenter Dirty Dancing fan “franceshouseman” pointed out that New Girl works best as a “diet It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," where “the plot is just a loose form to allow each character in their own way.” As if to prove franceshouseman’s point, enter “Walk of Shame.” The real shame, though, is how bland an episode with so many excellent elements turns out to be.Drybar is going to owe New Girl a lot of money after “Walk of Shame,” because it, somewhat accurately, depicts how getting a blowout can feel like drinking a magical confidence elixir. The self-esteem boost is enough to convince Jess and Cece to attend a party held by Bearclaw and his roommate, Generic Hot Guy (I assume that’s his name; he has no other distinguishing characteristics). The last time we saw Josh Gad’s Bearclaw, »

In just three days, Chris Hemsworth will make his Saturday Night Live debut! Ahead of his hosting gig, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star filmed a series of promos with Kate McKinnon. Like most hot-blooded women, Kate is in awe of Chris's beauty. In fact, she's speechless. "I think you have a line. Just say that, right there," Chris instructs her. "Just say, 'We're so happy to have you here.'" Nope. Not gonna happen. In another bit, Kate seizes the moment to recreate an iconic movie scene. "There's something I've always wanted to do, and you're the perfect host: I want to attempt the Dirty Dancing lift," she admits. Chris agrees, then puts her in a »
Taking a cue from Patrick Swayze in the 1987 classic (and later Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love), SNL star Kate McKinnon convinces People's Sexiest Man Alive to attempt "the lift." Despite being a contestant on season 5 of Dancing with the Stars Australia, Hemsworth couldn't pull off the move.

The Thor star will be the first of the famous Hemsworth brothers to host SNL, though Liam has appeared on the sketch show. The Hunger Games hottie joined co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence on stage for Woody Harrelson's monologue when he hosted this past November.
Will Liam also show up to assist his big brother?
Life-size action figure Chris Hemsworth is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend with musical guest Zac Brown Band, so an enthusiastic Kate McKinnon decided to help the Thor actor with his promos. There are a lot of magical moments with the Hems here, including a botched Dirty Dancing lift and a hilariously catatonic-verging-on-ravenous McKinnon. (Fear not: No McKinnons were harmed in the filming of these promos.) »

Kate McKinnon certainly looks to be having the time of her life in the latest promo for “Saturday Night Live,” and wouldn’t anyone if they got to dance with Chris Hemsworth. However, she soon learns that the “Avengers” actor is no Patrick Swayze. Following a stuttered introduction as the cast member just stares longingly at the “Thor” star, McKinnon tells him: “There is something I have always wanted to do, and you are perfect host. I want to attempt the ‘Dirty Dancing’ lift.” See photos: ‘SNL’s’ 40 Most Hilarious Sketches (Photos) The Australian hunk is game, of course, but »

After treating cinema fans for more than a decade, Ee's 2-for-1 ticket offer is coming to an end today (February 25). We'll certainly miss breaking up the week with a cut-price cinema visit, and the end of the promotion has made us all nostalgic about the classic Orange Wednesdays ads that started it all off.
Dubbed 'Orange Gold Spots', they starred Brennan Brown and Steve Furst as two clueless film execs listening to pitches from some of Hollywood's finest. Brilliantly lampooning the bean counter thinking of studio suits and the fragile creative egos of A-listers, the likes of Patrick Swayze, Macaulay Culkin and Carrie Fisher all stepped up to offer their increasingly compromised film pitches:
This early offering sought to capture that creative moment when the lightbulb flicks on... unfortunately Brown's dim-witted exec can't quite grasp what's dangling right in front of him. Stanley Kubrick would be livid. »

The Oscars are less than 96 hours away, so you only have a limited amount of time to brag about your insane knowledge of Academy Awards history. Ready for a brutal 21-question foray into Oscar's grisly past? Let's roll. (We give you the questions on the first page. Jot down your responses, then check the answers, along with the accompanying questions, on the next page. The videos embedded here aren't related to the questions. They're just fun!) 1. What ‘90s Best Actor winner gave the shortest onscreen performance ever nominated (and therefore awarded) in that category? This is measured by total minutes and seconds spent onscreen. 2. The first (and so far only) black female nominee in the Best Original Screenplay category was a co-writer of what biopic released in the 1970s? 3.

Having choreographed “Dirty Dancing” and directed Michael Jackson’s “Dangerous” and “HIStory” world tours and Disney Channel’s record-busting “High School Musicals,” Kenny Ortega looks set to see his career take another turn as he teams with “Violetta” creators Solange Keoleyan and Sebastian Parrotta to originate “Bandolero,” a new Spanish-language musical TV series.
Also written by Keoleyan and Parrotta, whose “Violetta” has proved a mega-franchise TV series for Disney Channel, “Bandolero” is set up at Los Angeles’ Campanario Entertainment, producers of Telemundo’s flagship Spanish telenovela “Camelia La Texana.”
In development, “Bandolero” marks the first major Spanish-language production for Ortega, whose grandparents were from Spain.
A “music-dance-parkour driven dramatic format about contemporary kids who are art lovers,” in Ortega’s words, the TV series is billed as a story of forbidden love and lofty musical dreams that slowly reveals the origins of powerful Hispanic superhero Bandolero.
Its hero is Renzo, »

Socha, who’s had recurring arcs on “Royal Pains,” “The Big C” and “Damages” and replaced Lea Michele in “Spring Awakening’s” original Broadway production in 2008, was a guest star in the pilot for Amazon Studios, which premiered last year on Amazon Prime Instant Video. The full series is set to bow later this year.
The coming-of-age series, set in suburban New Jersey in the mid-’80s, follows college student David Myers (Craig Roberts), working the summer as an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club, during the last hurrah before his adult life begins. Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”) and Jennifer Grey (“Dirty Dancing”) also star.

We keep thinking that Jimmy Fallon is hitting his peak with his celebrity lip-sync battles (it's hard to top Emma Stone), but somehow The Tonight Show just keeps taking it to the next level. The latest edition had surprises and celebrity cameos, but most importantly, it featured Will Ferrell doing Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" and Frozen's "Let It Go." So watch for Will's sexy dance moves, but stay for Jimmy Fallon's tribute to Dirty Dancing. And be sure to watch Jimmy's star-studded rendition of "We Are The Champions". »
See kids, if you work hard, one day you can get your own talk show and convince all of your childhood heroes to recreate all of your absolute favorite things, from getting to perform a duet from Dirty Dancing, to singing “Old Man” with Neil Young, and to starring in your own reunion of Saved By the Bell. Of course, Jimmy got Mark-Paul Gosselaar to revive his role as Zack Morris once before, but this one paired him with Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Dennis Haskins in the Internet’s biggest act of fan service in a while. Honestly though the best moment may have been that Jimmy is still kicking himself for realizing he could’ve dated Nicole Kidman.
What?! No Dustin Diamond? I can’t possibly imagine why.

Newly married Cameron Diaz linked up with her sister-in-law Nicole Richie and girlfriends Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow for dinner at Katsuya in La on Monday evening. The group was spotted heading out of the restaurant and to their cars after their fun night out. While Cameron has been sticking close to home in La lately - she and new husband Benji Madden got caught on the Kiss Cam at a Lakers game last week - her famous friends have been traveling all over the place. Gwyneth shared a snap on Instagram of her recent skiing trip in Park City, Ut, while Nicole spent time in Dubai to launch her latest House of Harlow 1960 collection.
