As someone who is a huge admirer of Bollywood cinema, I also happen to be a big fan of Us sitcoms. I have seen many great shows from beginning to end that include Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond and of course How I Met Your Mother. Although the classic TV show ended last year, I only recently finished watching the final season where the male lead Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor) ultimately ends up with the love of his life Robin Scherbatsky (played bv Cobie Smulders). As someone who happens to be a fan of both Bollywood and Us sitcoms, I cannot help but notice that How I Met Your Mother is ultimately a tribute to all the love stories that are told in the world of Bollywood. It is something which I have rarely seen in a Us television show before, but How I Met Your Mother has »

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:
He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »
The pair took turns gabbing as one another, with Fallon's lips first making Aniston talk like Sling Blade-era Billy Bob Thornton and the most amped, obnoxious Bonnaroo attendee. Aniston took a simpler route, turning Fallon into a sweet Southern belle: "I'm just pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty little thing, y'all," she said. "I think I'm gonna flip a house!" Her impression was cut short, »
Arriving fashionably late to the party is the speciality of these female TV characters. They’re not the Cousin Olivers or the Scrappy Doos of the television world, but the regulars and recurring roles who enter a show once it’s established and help it on its way to greatness. Their respective shows may not have known they needed them right at the start, but they soon proved themselves indispensable and much-loved parts of their TV universes.
From Paige Matthews to Winifred Burkle, Ro Laren and more then, let’s celebrate the women whose appearance in our favourite shows were better late than never...

Many actors and actresses, whether they are already famous or trying to make it to the top, are always trying to improve their craft by taking on roles that are out of their comfort zone; but once they make it on a TV show portraying the character that they have been assigned, we as the audience will come to identify him or her as the character they have portrayed on the show over time, which can set them back in terms of getting better roles in other television shows. This is known as typecasting. There have been instances in which an actor or actress has been so strongly identified with a role that made them who they are today makes it that much difficult for him or her to find work playing other characters. The actors and actresses who, in my opinion, are being typecast, are Kelsey Grammer, Jennifer Aniston, »

A month from now, are you even going to remember who won the Golden Globes? And should you? After all, it's not like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the little group of entertainment journalists who give out the prizes, have loads of credibility, either as Oscar and Emmy prognosticators or as discerning film and TV critics.
But they do put on a heck of an awards show. This year's gala, the HFPA's 72nd, boasts a pair of popular and funny emcees, a glamorous gathering of TV and movie stars, a tribute to a certain Hollywood royal, and the possibility that the event's free-flowing alcohol and relaxed vibes will lead to something spontaneous and memorable happening. Oh yeah, and Sunday's proceedings will also offer a small hint at what could win at the Oscars in February. Here, then, are some things likely to catch your eye at the 2015 Golden Globes ceremony. »

Edward Herrmann was a master of character, one of those actors who could be counted on to deliver no matter what else was happening on the screen or stage.
Herrmann, who died Wednesday at the age of 71, was famously adept at playing historical figures, from Franklin Delano Roosevelt (many times, most recently as the voiceover in Ken Burns’ “The Rooosevelts: An Intimate History”) to Lou Gehrig, William Randolph Hearst (in Peter Bogdanovich’s “The Cat’s Meow”), Raymond Massey (in biopic “James Dean”), Joseph Breen (enforcer of Hollywood’s Production code from the 1930s-50s), Nelson Rockefeller, Alger Hiss, Fred Friendly and George Bernard Shaw.
Herrmann also had a face that was born to play priests, cops, dads and nondescript world leaders. Reviewing the 1999 NBC miniseries “Atomic Train,” Variety declared that Herrmann’s turn as the U.S. commander-in-chief was just about the only redeeming quality of the limp thriller »
