It shouldn’t be a surprise if Eddie Goines looks a tad familiar. If you’ve been following the web series Celeste Bright, which we featured Here on this site, then you may recognize him as the male lead, Agent Rick Taylor. If you didn’t catch that, you may have seen him on the box cover of Just For Men hair care products; or perhaps you spotted him in Ridley Scott’s 2007 movie, American Gangster; or playing the leading man opposite Ms Beyoncé in her If I Were a Boy video… Then of course there’s his football career, culminating with the Seattle Seahawks, the New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts, but ended due to a knee injury.
Well whether any of that rings any bells or not, something tells me he’ll be on many a radar at some time soon, becaus the man just won’t stop at anything less! »

We've exclusively learned that ABC's "Happy Endings" has brought on comedian and actor Tj Miller ("How To Train Your Dragon," "She's Out of My League"), pictured left, to guest star as an old friend of the gang, Shershow. He used to be a mess, but when they attend his wedding they find out that he has gotten his life together.

London Children's Film Festival
It's a win-win at this kids' cinema event: the anxiety of plonking your children in front of the screen for some (quality) passive entertainment is offset by energetic activities. It's parental guilt neutral. There's a mass outdoor balloon release to go with German girl drama Here Comes Lola, and a Finnish breakfast to warm you up for Moomins And The Comet Chase. The Spiderwick Chronicles is complemented by star Freddie Highmore and a Halloween workshop, while Megamind, with Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt, gives the whole family a chance to veg out.
Venues inc Barbican, EC2, Sat to 7 Nov

England's biggest film festival after London, and though it features some the highlights of its rival including Never Let Me Go, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, and The King's Speech, Leeds is very much its own show, with a mostly »

Forget dance moves! Cool costumes are the way to go on Dancing with the Stars!
My girl, Bristol “The Pistol” Palin was horrific on Dancing with the Stars Oct. 18, so she needs your help now more than ever! Not only did she wear a gorilla costume with her partner, Mark Ballas, she almost forgot the entire dance. Sure, she’s the worst dancer on the show, but we need to save her — she’s the most entertaining contestant!
Here were my six most memorable show moments from the evening:
Bristol Palin, 19, was horrendous and technically shouldn’t get any votes. However, who would we talk about if she left? She’s hysterical in her own way. My favorite lines of the night: Brooke Burke: How did you feel about that? Bristol: I hate the jive. Haha! As you should, Bristol. The jive hated you. Can we please take a »

Good evening and welcome. You would not believe what a total nightmare I have had today. So forgive me if I chug back the BBC's house wine while I liveblog Live From Television Centre! I have already seen Ann Widdecombe, who, when told she looked beautiful, retorted, "That's the only thing that Is beautiful," which fills me with confidence for her performance tonight. Also beautiful, and very sweet? Natalie Lowe. Seriously. She's Really Nice. If only she was allowed to talk and have personality when she's on the show, rather than looking scarily into the camera.
5.58pm: Right, nearly ready to go? Or at least we would be if the BBC's televisions were actually showing Strictly...rather than the Espn football...seriously....
6.02pm: Here we go. Tess »

My girl, Taylor Swift, isn’t a teenager anymore –and boy, oh boy have the stakes been raised! In one of her most popular hits from her last album, “You Belong With Me,” the country music crooner chided her crush for being with the wrong girlfriend — but now the 20-year-old pop star has released her new single, “Speak Now,” about stopping a guy as he walks down the aisle! Is good girl Taylor Swift a home wrecker now? Sounds like it!
Check out these lyrics:
I am not the kind of girl
Who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion
But you are not the kind of boy
Who should be »

Fergie a.k.a. Stacy Ferguson thinks Cheryl Cole can "rule the world". The Black Eyed Peas singer, who became pals with the British beauty this summer when the "Parachute" hitmaker was the opening act on the group's tour, thinks her pal could soon work with some of the world's biggest movie and music stars.
"She is such a good friend. But I don't think she has quite got her head around how big she is going to be. My girl really can rule the world," she said. "I have already heard crazy things like Robert De Niro wants to make movies with her and that Jay-z wants to work with her."
Fergie even believes the Girls Aloud singer, who is rumored to be joining the judging panel on the U.S. "The X Factor" when it launches next year, could reach the levels of stardom attained by pop superstars Madonna and Mariah Carey. »

Here's something that will make you feel old - Home Alone's mischievous Kevin McCallister is 30!
That's right, the world's first million dollar child star, Macaulay Culkin, hits the big 3-0 today.
It seems like yesterday since the beloved blond boy wonder was creating mayhem in the first two Home Alones, and fronting films like Richie Rich and Getting Even with Dad - but, no, sorry 80s kids; Home Alone hit the big screen 20 years ago!
He might have retired at 14, back in 1995, but Mack's still one of the most iconic movie figures of the last century - and we can't wait for him to make his comeback.
- he made his first stage appearance on Broadway at the age of four.
- he also appeared in the New York City Ballet's The Nutcracker when he was five.
- Culkin studied at the prestigious School of American Ballet.
- he was the first actor Home Alone director Chris Columbus saw as he was casting for his hit film, but the filmmaker reportedly checked out another 200 potential child stars before realising Culkin was his Kevin McCallister.
- the first Home Alone movie grossed more than $285 million (£190 million) in the U.S. alone.
- he is godfather to Michael Jackson's son Prince Michael and daughter Paris.
- he became the first child actor to ever receive $1 million dollars (£666,667) for one film - 1991's My Girl.
- his aunt is actress Bonnie Bedelia. »
With "The Karate Kid" scoring not just surprisingly good reviews but a stellar box-office opening over the weekend, the next gold mine of 80's and 90's remakes would seem to be the family comedy genre.
Now, Pajiba reports that a remake of the Christina Applegate-led 1991 comedy "Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead" is in the works at the Mark Gordon Company. The project is apparently out to writers at this stage.
The original followed five kids who're left alone for the summer with an elderly babysitter who dies on the first night. The eldest sister soon lies her way into an executive position with a fashion designer in order to get money to survive. Though not a classic by any means, the film has enough of a fanbase that you knew one day this would come.
It also begs the question as to what late 80's/early 90's family films will be next? »

Steiner probably drew the big donor crowd, which was fine. He’s a lovely guy. But it was Smokey who brought the music. The Supremes’ Mary Wilson, a glamorous and stunning 66 years young, paid tribute by bringing the house down with “I Am Changing” from Dreamgirls, Norah Jones’s “Don’t Know Why,” and invited the audience on stage for a singalong on “Stop! In the Name of Love.”
The Temptations–all new members along with founder Otis Williams–performed songs Smokey wrote for the group during their heyday including (my all time favorite) “Since I Lost My Baby.” Paul Shaffer described Robinson’s “My Girl” as the greatest pop composition ever from the rock era. Well, it »

Have you seen this Iron Baby trailer? Kids these days. They got tech skills in diapers.
Confession: I went to see Babies last weekend while I was in Boston. My girl Amy suggested it.
Amy and me in NYC --->
We tried not to weep copiously into our popcorn bucket since we are both barren through circumstance (i.e. single or gay). Babies wasn't exactly a documentary so much as four parallel home movies without commentary other than perhaps what you're projecting on to it. I have nothing to add to the New Yorker's review which is brill. This moment David Denby singles out had us roaring:i detected only one satirical sally: The San Francisco baby, Hattie, and her mother attend some sort of New Age group-parenting session. The mothers, raising their arms in supplication, sing a ghastly hymn to the earth, at which point Hattie heads for the door. »

If you never saw Anna Chlumsky's first big-screen starring role, 1991's "My Girl," we feel sorry for you. Seriously, rent it as soon as possible. Chlumsky, then 11 years old, played the most adorable hypochondriac ever, opposite a young Macaulay Culkin. We will forever remember her singing "Do Wah Diddy" and wailing, "Thomas J. can't see without his glasses!"
Chlumsky, now 30, is used to people recognizing her for the role she played nearly 20 years ago. "I look just the same," she tells the Chicago Tribune. Chlumsky quit acting shortly after she started college at the University of Chicago, where she toyed with dreams of being a horse dentist or a paleontologist.
Anna ended up as a fact-checker for the Zagat restaurant guide, then worked as an editorial assistant at HarperCollins until a psychic reminded her that she still wanted to be an actress.
Now she's got a handful of recent roles under her belt, »
Britain's Got Talent singer Josh Barry has revealed that he is planning an "upbeat modern" song for the semi-finals. Barry, 16, appeared on Saturday's audition show singing 'My Girl'.

Speaking about what he will perform at the live shows stage, Barry told This Morning: "I'll probably do something more up beat and more (more) »

Britain's Got Talent hopeful Josh Barry has claimed that he doesn't want to be the next Justin Bieber. The 16-year-old, who wowed the judges last night with his rendition of 'My Girl' by The Temptations, admitted that he would be keen to have the same amount of female attention as Bieber. He told the News of the World: "I don't think I'll be the next Justin. I don't want to be typecast - unless I'm compared to Usher. "But I wouldn't mind the female attention that Justin gets. If you ask any teenage boy if they (more) »
