If you’re going to try and get Selena Gomez to go to prom, you have to go big, right?
Well that’s exactly what Cole Labrant did.
The senior from Enterprise, Ala. spent 10 days making an over-the-top, hilarious promposal video complete with lip syncing to Selena’s songs -- and even a few from her Bff Taylor Swift.
Cole also showed off his serious dance moves in corn fields, on train tracks, and in one number that involved a boy band routine. And we can’t forget to mention the beach scene of him confessing his love for Selena while drawing her name in the sand.
For those who are Internet-savvy, you may know Cole is part of the popular Vine group, Dem White Boyz, which have over 5 million followers, so naturally they had to make a Vine about the prom.
Selena must be »
The upside-down map of the world and backwards-running clocks on the set on Larry Wilmore’s new “Nightly Show” aren’t the only things askew at Comedy Central. But on Wilmore’s program, that’s intentional.
“Nightly Show” is the noisiest in a series of recent launches on the Viacom-owned network — programs that send ripples across the popular culture. Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and even Jon Stewart probably could not make the sorts of pointed asides about racial inequity, sexual politics and cultural oddities that Wilmore, a fiftysomething African-American man, can. During a recent taping, an opening line about the sexual-assault controversy raging around Bill Cosby — “The question will be, ‘Did he do it?’ The answer will be, ‘Yes’ ” — treads dangerous ground, but the crowd reacts so well that Wilmore cracks up and has to reshoot the segment’s start.
“This show is a little dangerous sometimes,” Wilmore confides »

It's three times a charm for Jim Parsons on Broadway. The Big Bang Theory star will return to New York City to star in the comedy An Act of God, which begins previews on May 5 and officially opens May 28. Parsons, 41, will play God in the play written by @TheTweetOfGod curator David Javerbaum, who is also an Emmy-winning head writer and executive producer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. A release about the show promises that God will "reveal the mysteries of the Bible and answer some of the greatest existential questions that plague mankind." Director Joe Mantello previously starred »

“The Big Bang Theory” star Parsons will star as the Man Upstairs in the Broadway production “An Act of God,” which begins performances May 5 at Studio 54.
The comedy, written by David Javerbaum (“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart“), promises to reveal “the mysteries of the Bible while answering the existential questions that have plagued mankind since Creation — in just 90 minutes.”
According to the description on the play’s website, »

The Daily Show's Jessica Williams may have as many hours in a day as Beyoncé, but like the rest of us, she knows the Grammy winner is practically superhuman. "We're all trying to catch up with Beyoncé. We're all running a race, and Beyonceé is up there, and we're all just trying to run and get there," the comedian told Cosmopolitan.com at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this week. "Everyone's just in her farts, in her dust. Everyone is in Beyoncé's farts!" Williams, who was at the film festival to promote her upcoming film People, Places, Things, couldn't help but continue gushing about her idol—which makes sense given that her title »
Reiss, who served as Ep of MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews prior to stepping in as acting executive producer of “Mtp” when Chuck Todd took over last September, has tinkered with the format of the longest-tenured TV show since joining the program.
Members of the press have been propelled to the forefront under the Todd/Reiss partnership. The show tends to start with Todd in the middle of a panel of journalists, »

Jon Stewart had a field day with CNN's "blizzardmobile" on Tuesday's The Daily Show. Stewart mocked CNN anchor Don Lemon, who broadcast from New York on Monday from a vehicle dubbed the "blizzardmobile," even though non-emergency vehicles were asked to stay off the streets.

Jon Stewart could not believe he even had a studio audience on Monday night, due to the pending Juno blizzard.
“My guess is, if you are watching this program, New York is gone,” Stewart deadpanned. “I hope you remember us for our world-class pizza and bridges and not for our tendency to tell people who innocently have their eyes lock with our eyes to go fuck themselves.
“I honestly cannot believe these people showed up today, »

A version of this story first appeared in the Feb. 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. "There is breakfast from The Daily Show in the second-floor pantry," pipes a woman's voice through the loudspeakers.

Sporting the most absurdly universalizing title since “Men, Women & Children,” “People, Places, Things” contains no insights into the human condition so profound as to warrant staking a claim on the world’s nouns. The cutesy story of a New York comicbook artist grappling with parenting after a breakup had its world-preem audience chuckling appreciatively at one-liners, but this mild crowdpleaser won’t be able to count on critics’ help in reaching people and places.
Writer-director James C. Strouse, credited here as Jim (and sans middle initial), got something of a pass with his mopey grief drama “Grace Is Gone,” which had a topical Iraq War premise; it won the audience and screenwriting awards in the dramatic competition at Sundance 2007. The similarly credulity-straining “People, Places, Things” is another type of movie that, for better or worse, often earns the derisive moniker “Sundance film.” It centers on a 40-year-old man experiencing a »

More than 175 comedy/variety writers have signed a petition urging ITV to enter a collective bargaining agreement covering its nonfiction writer-producers — including its upcoming variety show hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
The Writers Guild of America East, which has been in a protracted battle with ITV over unionizing the company, has warned that it will not allow its members to work on the show.
“We are one guild,” the petition states. “By refusing to agree to a guild contract protecting its nonfiction writers and producers, ITV is also showing the back of its hand to us, the men and women who would write comedy/variety shows for ITV — in particular, the men and women ITV apparently expects to write a major new series for NBC starring Neil Patrick Harris.”
In response, ITV disputed the guild’s claims.
“The ITV Studios America affiliate producing ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ has a binding agreement »

David Gregory nearly traded in a sensible navy suit for an orange jumper, when the former “Meet the Press” host brandished an illegal high-capacity magazine on a 2012 episode, according to an affidavit revealed recently.
During a Dec. 2012 segment on his NBC News program in which he debated the National Rifle Association, Gregory made his point with a real prop. As a result, an affidavit for his arrest on misdemeanor weapons charges was filled out in Washington, D.C., though the anchor was never taken in. »

Has the world gotten nicer since 2013? Anne Hathaway does not think so.
In Song One, the actress took on a role that she really connected with and it made her reassess how she looked at life.
"For me, this movie is about a girl getting out of her own way and getting out of her own head. I was in the very early stages of that journey in my own life," she told the Associated Press. "It's not like the world has gotten nicer since 2013. I think it's about looking beyond your knee-jerk judgment about places and people and professions and actually experiencing something with an open heart."

On the plus side, Larry Wilmore quickly established himself in the first week as the right guy to sit behind Stephen Colbert’s desk. On the down side, it’s hard to see why most newsmakers or celebrities — given their priorities — would be eager to take part in the panels that make up more than half the show.
Obviously, “The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore” is a work in progress, and Comedy Central will have time to tinker with this Jon Stewart-produced companion to “The Daily Show.” But the producers miscalculated on the nature of the modern talkshow, to the extent the new series offers both a modicum of risk to better-known names and scant benefit, since there’s virtually no time to promote movies or plug books.
Even Stewart, it should be noted, relies heavily on authors to keep the seat opposite him warm, people who lack recognition »

Forever young! Jennifer Aniston visited The Daily Show With Jon Stewart in NYC on Thursday, Jan. 22, rocking one of her signature, plunging LBDs—and we loved it! But what we loved even more? Her adorable, cheerleader-worthy ponytail. The Cake star, 45, balanced the sexiness of her high-hemmed ensemble with the sweet high school hairdo. Adding even more youthful effervesce to the look, Aniston tied a black satin ribbon around her pony—but rather than creating a bow, she left each tail loose. The finished effect: carefree but classic. To complete [...] »
