Before birthday girl Teri Hatcher was one of the "Desperate Housewives," she held another famous title: Bond Girl.Hot off the heels of her run as Lois Lane on "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," Hatcher was cast as Paris Carver in "Tomorrow Never Dies."Unfortunately for Teri, Paris was the "Bond Girl Who Dies" in the flick ... meaning she was only in the movie long enough to sleep with 007 and get killed by her husband. Cue sad trombone. It's been a good 15 years since the movie came out and Teri still looks great. But how have some of the other Bond Girls held up through the years? Check out the gallery above to see what they all look like now! Read more »

Stars from Universal’s forthcoming action film R.I.P.D filmed scenes in Los Angeles and courtesy of ComingSoon we have images of Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern, Safe House), Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, Iron Man) and Mary-Louise Parker (The West Wing, Weeds) as they got to grips with their characters on set of the undead police drama:
The film, directed by Robert Schwentke (The Time Traveler’s Wife, Red), is based on the mini-series by Dark Horse Comics, which is the third-largest comics publisher in the U.S and known for such titles as Star Wars, Buffy and Hellboy. R.I.P.D. centres on a recently slain cop who joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department as he tries to find the man responsible for his murder.
DC super heroes have experienced a hit and miss relationship with TV viewers over the years. There's been some live-action hits like the original 1950's The Adventures of Superman, Batman, Smallville, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and the 1970's Wonder Woman. We've seen short-lived ones that some consider genius while others look at as failures such as The Flash and Birds of Prey. Let's also not forget the unaired Wonder Woman and Aquaman pilots which never even got a chance to excel or flop. Now Green Arrow gets his chance at stardom.
Arrow tells the tale of billionaire Oliver Queen, who comes home to Starling City after being stranded on a desert island for five years. However, he isn't returning the same spoiled rich kid he left as. While they were trapped at sea, Oliver's father gave him orders to right the wrongs he committed against people »

On June 14, 2013, audiences around the world will get to see if the wait for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was worth it. While many fans seem torn about whether or not the film holds any promise (it has to be better than Superman Returns), actor Henry Cavill seems to at least look the part. But there’s more to playing The Last Son of Krypton than just appearances, and not every actor gets it right. There are the subtle nuances that go with selling the character, not only as Superman himself, but also as his alter ego, reporter Clark Kent. In preparation for the upcoming film, I want to take a look at the actors who have played this iconic character over the years, and see how well each one has done in the role. For ease, we’ll stick with just the live-action versions.
Sky Living and Sky Atlantic have built their audience by showing the very best of Us shows. They recently screened a selection of their newly acquired shows, which will form part of their 4th quarter 2012/1st quarter 2013 line ups, and we were there.
So check below for our reviews of Arrow, Vegas, Elementary and The Following.
Warner Brothers’ habit of turning their comic book properties into soapy TV shows has always seemed a bit odd. Even without resorting to the stereotypes of bespectacled nerd and housewife, the core audiences for the two don’t really overlap. And yet, with both The New Adventures of Superman and with Smallville, that formula has proven remarkably successful.
No surprise then that Warners are trying to do the same again, although their choice of Green Arrow to front the series seems a bit odd. Still, here we are, with a character in a ridiculous outfit, »

The season finale to Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, entitled Shitagi Nashi after a fictional Asian manga that features in the plot, was a compelling affair. Between holidays, graduation and searching for work, it has taken me far longer than acceptable to watch the episode and write this review, but I was satisfied with how it rounded out the first season of this strange comedy.
The plotting and direction of this episode was the best thing about the finale. It brought back story elements from across the series, and provided some closure to these characters. And, as usual, it was damn funny.
The main plot for the episode dealt with June and Chloe’s (Dreama Walker and Krysten Ritter) friendship. They have grown close and Chloe keeps taking June out to party across New York. »

VH1 Picks Up Scripted Series 'Bounce' for 2013
Now that Single Ladies has made it through a cast change pretty unscathed, VH1 is going back to the scripted well and picking up its second scripted series. Bounce, written by James Larosa (Spyder Games), follows the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premiere professional basketball dance team in all the league. They may be able to turn the glamour on when they're out on the floor, but their offstage lives are anything but glamorous.
Starring the likes of Kimberly Elise (Diary of a Mad Black Woman), Taylour Paige (High School Musical 3: Senior Year), and Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), Bounce sounds like a perfect fit for VH1; the network has focused in on the world of professional athletics through its unscripted programming, so finding a scripted project in that arena is very much on-brand. Whether it gets as messy as, »

I love comics. I love reading them, thinking about them, discussing them, and even critiquing them. I also love writing them, something I’ve discovered in the last couple of years as I started writing a series of webcomics about characters in upcoming comic book-related movies, which were then published on movie news websites like MTV Splash Page and ReelzChannel. Since that time, I’ve realized that I’d really like to keep writing comics, including, hopefully someday soon, full issues for a major company, to be seen by all the worrrrrrld [insert maniacal laugh here].
That may seem like a big leap, but it could happen. After all, most of the people who are or have been involved in professional comics started out just as I did: as ridiculously huge fans of the medium and the characters and stories. I mean, sure, maybe a few here or there got pulled into a job »
