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

4 hours ago | 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'

10 hours ago | 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 »

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. »

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.

4 March 2015 8:45 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

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? »

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?

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.

Chris Hemsworth and Kate McKinnon Get Dirty in ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

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 »

Farewell, Ee Wednesdays! Watch Mr Dresden's best Orange pitch adverts

25 February 2015 5:28 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

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:

1. A Clockwork Orange

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. »

Can you ace HitFix's brutal 21-question Oscars quiz?

19 February 2015 4:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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. From 1937 to 1945, the Academy guaranteed nominations in one particular category to any studio that submitted a qualifiable entry. What was the category? »

Campanario, Kenny Ortega, ‘Violetta’ Creators Team for ‘Bandolero’ (Exclusive)

16 February 2015 9:07 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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.

You Need to See Will Ferrell Lip-Sync to "Let It Go" and "Drunk in Love"

8 February 2015 6:10 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

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". »
