‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Special in Works at Fox

10 April 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox is developing an event special around “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” the enduring midnight-movie classic that has been playing for 40 years.

Kenny Ortega is on board to direct and choreograph. Gail Berman is producing through her Jackal Group with Fox 21 Television Studios. Berman has long been looking to do a “Rocky Horror” revival — she set a similar project in motion more than a decade ago when she was entertainment president at Fox.

The “Rocky Horror” revival is in the early stages of development and is cast-contigent. It is described as a “two-hour event” special. Lou Adler, producer of the original 1975 pic starring Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon, is also on board as an exec producer.

Pic helped launch Tim Curry’s career and is known for its signature musical number “Time Warp.”

Ortega, repped by Paradigm, is a natural choice to helm the project, given his background »

What movie, TV show or music did your parents ban from you as a kid?

25 March 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Raunchy comedies. Scary movies. Songs with explicit lyrics. Space, the final frontier. When we're kids, we're frequently banned from checking out films, TV, music or other entertainment before we're "ready." Whatever that means. At HitFix, we discovered there's a range of what was banned in our households when we were children. Some folks like lucky-duck Gregory Ellwood had no bans at all. Some bans didn't hold. Some bans were so intense, they blanketed all corners of media. Below are some of our staffers sounding off on what wasn't allowed in their household. Share with us in the comments what stuff you couldn't watch or hear. Chris Eggertsen - "Married...With Children" "Married...With Children" was like the Devil in our house, and here's the kicker: I'm almost positive my mother never watched it before banning it. It was enough that a random Christian woman living halfway across the country whom »

Ryan Gosling's Childhood Dance Videos Are Beyond Adorable

9 March 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Before Ryan Gosling became a treasured heartthrob, he was a kid with sassy dance moves. And thanks to a wonderful person with the proof, you can now watch 12-year-old Ryan slay in all his glory. On Friday, Shaun Swire shared the adorable clips with the world, showing Ryan channeling his inner Elvis Presley in a leather jacket (which he takes off!) and Mc Hammer in parachute pants.

'Avengers' star Chris Hemsworth won't be out-done by Liam in these 'SNL' videos

6 March 2015 8:38 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chris Hemsworth can't do the "Dirty Dancing" lift. He may not be able to lift 2-lb. free weights. Chris Hemsworth may not be human. But he is the host of "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with Zac Brown Band. Kate McKinnon joins the Aussie "Avengers" star in these NBC promotional vids for this weekend's episode. Zac Brown Band is on as musical guest. It is Hemsworth's first time hosting "SNL," and he might just be committed to doing it better than... say... his very handsome brother Liam. What do you think, is Thor a good choice for a host? Will he do better than Dakota Johnson from last weekend? »

Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth Make Mullets Sexy on 'Tonight Show'

6 March 2015 2:43 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Thursday's Tonight Show, a question was posed we'd never thought we'd have to answer: Who's hotter with a mullet, Thor or Wolverine?

Saturday Night Live host Chris Hemsworth showed up with some cast members from the show to play Musical Beers alongside Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and X-Men star Hugh Jackman.

Upon hitting the stage, Hemsworth immediately asked for a mullet of his own after seeing how cool Jackman and Fallon looked in their wigs. The late-night host gave him the mullet off his own head.

Then the Aussie men, along with the SNL stars and Fallon, competed in a game much like Musical Chairs. To the tune of "Bang Bang", the guys and girl (Kate McKinnon) walked around a table and when the music stopped, instead of sitting in a chair, they had to chug a beer. The person without a drink in their hand was tagged out.[p »

They're totally earnest, and the duet is beautiful, but there are some cute moments in their performance with a couple of giggles. »

Kate McKinnon Tries the Dirty Dancing Lift (to Limited Success) with Chris Hemsworth in SNL Promos

4 March 2015 10:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[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, »

Chris Hemworth's 'SNL' Promos

4 March 2015 9:05 AM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Chris Hemsworth is headed to "SNL," and from the looks of the promos, he is still very much deserving of his Sexiest Man Alive title.

In the newly released promo reel for this weekend's "Saturday Night Live," Chris, his biceps (what? Did we say that?), and Kate McKinnon take on various tasks, including a failed attempt at the iconic "Dirty Dancing" lift.

"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.

New Girl Recap: The Blowout

4 March 2015 5:31 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

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, »

Chris Hemsworth Fails at 'Dirty Dancing' Lift in New 'SNL' Promos

4 March 2015 2:59 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Turns out, not every Hollywood heartthrob is good at the Dirty Dancing lift -- as was proven by Chris Hemsworth in his Saturday Night Live promos.

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?

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.
