Remember Roger’s acid trip in “Far Away Places” last season on Mad Men? This week’s episode makes that one seem straightforward and elementary – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. As half of the office staff spins in a drug-induced mania, we get clear glimpses of what’s really going on in the mad men and woman’s heads. I’ve got a feeling you either loved this episode or hated it – and I know you want to talk about it – so let’s review what happened in “The Crash.”

Maxim may have given Miley Cyrus the #1 spot on the Hot 100 list -- but at last night's party for the issue, she looked a hot mess.While the singer kept it cute and simple in a white and black jumpsuit and stripped gold and black heels, it was her makeup that caught our attention.Though her hair and top half of her face were on point, she was sporting a Joker-esque chin and mouth -- which was covered in white powder. HD Makeup is likely the culprit here, as it often photographs white, but the irony of Cyrus looking less-than-hot at a Hot 100 party isn't lost on us.The bash was packed with other Hollywood hotties -- including Kellie Pickler, "Boy Meets World" star Danielle Fishel, Kendra Wilkinson, Pia Toscano -- and guys like Brad Pitt doppelganger Chord Overstreet and "Jerry Maguire" kid Jonathan Lipnicki.Check out all the pics »

The first trailer for "The Butler" has just been released and showcases the pedigree of this project. Director Lee Daniels ("Precious") was inspired by the life of Eugene Allen, who worked at the White House for 34 years, rising from pantry man to head butler. Emmy champ Danny Strong ("Gmae Change") scripted this fictional version of his story. Oscar champ Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland," 2006) plays the title role while one-time Academy Award nominee Oprah Winfrey returns to the screen after a 15-year absence in the role of his wife. Among those playing the presidents and first ladies are Oscar champs Robin Williams ("Good Will Hunting," 1996) as Dwight Eisenhower, Melissa Leo ("The Fighter," 2010) as his wife Mamie and Jane Fonda ("Klute," 1971; "Coming Home," 1978) as Nancy Reagan. 1996 Supporting Actor winner Cuba Gooding Jr. ("Jerry Maguire&quo »

Oscar winners Olivia de Havilland and Luise Rainer among movie stars of the 1930s still alive With the passing of Deanna Durbin this past April, only a handful of movie stars of the 1930s remain on Planet Earth. Below is a (I believe) full list of surviving Hollywood "movie stars of the 1930s," in addition to a handful of secondary players, chiefly those who achieved stardom in the ensuing decade. Note: There’s only one male performer on the list — and curiously, four of the five child actresses listed below were born in April. (Please scroll down to check out the list of Oscar winners at the 75th Academy Awards, held on March 23, 2003, as seen in the picture above. Click on the photo to enlarge it. © A.M.P.A.S.) Two-time Oscar winner and London resident Luise Rainer (The Great Ziegfeld, The Good Earth, The Great Waltz), 103 last January »

Deanna Durbin assesses her own movie stardom: Private individual vs. public persona [See previous post: "Deanna Durbin: Less-Than-Rosy Hollywood Memories."] While researching Deanna Durbin for this article, what impressed me the most — besides her beatific singing voice — was her clear-headed appraisal of her own popularity, and by extension, of fame in general. Much to her credit, she apparently never believed her own publicity. In fact, Durbin’s is probably the most incisive, bluntly honest assessment of the appeal of any celebrity who, like her, at an early age became associated with a public persona — from Betty Bronson and Jackie Coogan in the ’20s, Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney in the ’30s, Margaret O’Brien and Jane Powell in the ’40s, and Debbie Reynolds and Sandra Dee in the ’50s to Macauley Culkin, Daniel Radcliffe, Zac Efron, Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Lautner in the last two decades. As illustrations of the sort of publicity enveloping Deanna Durbin in her heyday, »

Director Shane Black and producer Kevin Feige both come from rather different ends of the cinematic spectrum. Shane Black was one of the go-to writers in the 1980s and 1990s, revolutionizing the action-comedy genre with his scripts for Lethal Weapon, Lethal Weapon 2, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, and his directorial debut, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Kevin Feige produced Marvel Studio's highly-successful Phase One slate of movies, starting with Iron Man and culminating with last year's Marvel's The Avengers. Their Marvel Phase Two sequel Iron Man 3 showcases a melding of these two distinct styles in fascinating ways, when this action-thriller hits theaters May 3 (clickHere for my full review). I recently had the chance to sit down with both Shane Black and Kevin Feige to speak about this cinematic journey, which takes »

There isn't a role that Renée Zellweger can't play. Whether she's cast as a hardworking mother in "Jerry Maguire" or a clumsy and lovable singleton in "Bridget Jones's Diary," this is one actress who nails it time and time again. The Texas native fell into acting because of a fine arts requirement at her university, but it's a good thing, because this Academy Award winner has talent in spades.
In celebration of Zellweger's 44th birthday (on April 25), we are taking a look back at one of her best (and classiest!) on-screen moments. In this clip from "Bridget Jones's Diary," we see the blonde bombshell decked out in a bunny costume at what she thought was a "tarts and vicars party" -- little did she know the theme had been cancelled. Only Renée could handle such an embarrassing moment with such grace and dignity (well, along with this blonde, too ).

Cuba Gooding Jr. hides his Oscar in his theatre room. The 45-year-old actor won the Best Supporting Actor trophy in 1996 for his role in sports comedy 'Jerry Maguire', and it is so precious to him he keeps it under lock and key at his Los Angeles home. When asked where the Oscar is, he replied: 'Under protection. In my theatre room.' Cuba admits his career has not reached the same heights since, but it is down to his personal choice of roles. He added to the New York Post newspaper: 'My post-Academy Award years weren't great choices for me as an artist. It's been a problem. Caught in the trappings, that private-jets way of life, I had to »
Tom Cruise has quite the impressive list of leading ladies! The 51-year-old actor has starred with Hollywood's biggest actresses, like ex-wife Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut, Demi Moore in A Few Good Men and Renée Zellweger in the '90s classic Jerry Maguire. His latest gorgeous gal? Oblivion costar Olga Kurylenko, who has been all over the globe with Cruise recently promoting their sci-fi flick. To prepare for Oblivion, which hits theaters Friday, let's take a look back at his most memorable female movie counterparts. »
Tom Cruise could really use a box office hit right about now and "Oblivion" might be the film to do the trick. Already a success overseas, the sci-fi mindbender opens in the U.S. just two weeks ahead of the official summer movie season's launch with "Iron Man 3."
It's not just Cruise who could use a hit after a string of recent disappointments, but also the entire movie industry. So far the year has produced only three real hits ("Oz," "The Croods" and "Identity Thief") and a few modest overachievers ("Olympus Has Fallen," "Mama," "Safe Haven"), to say nothing of the even more troubling dearth of movies that are actually, you know, good.
The quick take on "Oblivion" is "great visuals, not-so-great story," but it's worth saying a little more about this ambitious piece of sci-fi filmmaking from director Joseph Kosinski ("Tron: Legacy").

We like Tom Cruise. Yes, the man be crazy, but he's also an endlessly charming rogue and a damn fine actor. But wow, does he sometimes have to say stupid things in his movies.

Tom Cruise dropped by Broadway's The Trip to Bountiful last night in NYC to catch up with his Jerry Maguire costar Cuba Gooding Jr., who is starring in the play. He hugged Cuba and chatted with him and his costar Vanessa Williams after he wrapped up an earlier appearance on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. Tom was in town to promote his new film, Oblivion, which his theaters on Friday. During his Tds interview, Jon, who is the same age as Tom, marveled at how the actor is still able to do so many physically demanding stunts, and Tom even admitted that he doesn't know where his energy comes from. Tom also chatted about working with new director Joseph Kosinski, and revealed that he doesn't pull A-list rank when on set. Tom said, "It takes a village to make a movie. It's not about me, it's about the story. »

Tom Cruise does a lost more in his movies than just flash his million-dollar smile and have nervous breakdowns in locker rooms with Cuba Gooding Jr., you know. Over the course of his nearly 40 years in movies, Cruise has taken on a wide variety of formidable enemies, whether they be made of flesh and blood or something else. Like any true movie hero, the man just can't get away from conflict.
In honor of the release of "Oblivion," which has Cruise taking on yet another new opponent, we've created an infographic that illustrates just how much fightin' Tom has done over the years — and who (or what) has been on the receiving end of his furious wrath.

Movie News - Rachel McAdams and Bradley Cooper will appear together in a new movie - the two veteran actors will star in a new romantic comedy.
