'Thor: Ragnarok' Director Taika Waititi Talks His 'Surreal' Scene-Stealing Role as Korg (Exclusive)

'Thor: Ragnarok' Director Taika Waititi Talks His 'Surreal' Scene-Stealing Role as Korg (Exclusive)
Taika Waititi should be used to all the praise by now. "Not enough. I want to hear more," the director joked during a sit-down with Et to discuss his new -- and yes, highly praised -- movie, Thor: Ragnarok. "Let's keep it going, because it won't last. And then I'll just be seeking for some more compliments...It's like a drug for me, compliments."

The native New Zealander is responsible for critically adored films like Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows -- as well as the Oscar-nominated short film, Two Cars, One Night -- and, as he's done on each of his projects thus far, he cast himself in a role in Ragnarok. "I'll always crowbar myself in there somehow," Waititi, a drama student at university who began his career as an actor, said. "I stopped acting, because I was like, I'm not doing the roles I wanna do. And now I can choose

‘American Idol’ Returns Next Season, Just Two Years After the ‘Farewell Season’ That Wasn’t
Some networks wait a lifetime for a moment like this.

ABC has tried for nearly 20 years to launch a hit music competition series. Now, it has finally acquired one: “American Idol,” which ended its run last year on Fox, will relaunch next spring on the network. Details are slim, including new judges and who will host. (“Idol” veteran Ryan Seacrest, now firmly a part of the ABC family as co-host of “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” was not mentioned in the press release.) But the network and producers FremantleMedia North America and Core Media Group made the announcement Tuesday morning.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey called “American Idol” a “pop-culture staple that left the air too soon,” while Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney/ABC, said the show “is an entertainment icon, and now it will air where it belongs, in ABC’s lineup of addictive fan

All 6 James Bonds together at last... in wax form at Madame Tussauds

All 6 James Bonds together at last... in wax form at Madame Tussauds
Daniel Craig has made it clear he hates playing James Bond. Sean Connery refused to take part in a Bond retrospective. George Lazenby became a car salesman. The chances of a full-on 007 team-up are sadly slim.

The next best thing? Immortalise them all in waxwork, of course. Madame Tussauds London has unveiled all six Bonds from Connery to Craig for a limited six-week attraction. Click the photo above for a closer look.

Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig will then go on a tour of Tussauds attractions around the world on December 1.

Created in a partnership with Eon Productions, the waxworks feature the 007 agents in their classic dinner suits designed by Oscar-winner Lindy Hemming.

It took 20 artists four months to complete the project, costing a whopping £150,000 for each model.

The waxworks arrive in time for the latest Bond movie Spectre, which will

Martha Thomases: Tim McGraw, Frank Cho, Sex and Guns

  • Comicmix
It’s going to take me a bit to get to comics this week, so please bear with me. We have a lot of outrage to get through first.

Recently, country singer Tim McGraw decided that, when he was in Hartford, Connecticut on his national tour, he would do a benefit concert for the charity Sandy Hook Promise. This organization was started after the shootings at the Sandy Hook elementary school and describes their mission thusly:

“1) Protect children from gun violence so no other parent experiences the loss of their child by engaging and empowering parents and communities with targeted prevention programs in the areas of mental wellness early-identification & intervention, social & emotional development and firearm safety & security.

“2) Help our community through this tragedy by providing resources and programs that foster connection, resiliency and overall wellness.”

Naturally, all hell broke lose.

Rebel Ha: Madonna's 10 Funniest Moments

Rebel Ha: Madonna's 10 Funniest Moments
Madonna recently opened up about her newest blonde ambition: comedy. "I like the idea of me sitting on a chair with a table, maybe a drink or two, and just talking about my life," she said. "I'd say funny things and tell funny stories. It would be funny. Call it sit-down comedy." Some of Madonna's official attempts at comedy -- namely "Shanghai Surprise" and "The Next Best Thing" -- haven't been successful, but the superstar is easily one of the funniest interviewees still in the game today. She sits down for her first interview with Howard Stern this week, and if that doesn't produce the funniest celebrity banter of the year, we've been cheated.  To celebrate Madonna's new album "Rebel Heart" (out today) and her general hilarity, let's take a look back at her funniest moments.

Marshawn Lynch Teaches Us How (Not) to Talk to the Press

  • VH1.com
The next best thing to watching Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch break tackle after tackle is catching a glimpse of his postgame interviews. Even though they usually last about 30 seconds, with quick, dry answers (“Yup,” “Thanks for asking, boss,” and “I’m here so I won’t get fined”), Beast Mode has become an anti-media hero around the league due to his consistent shunning of the press.

With the Super Bowl Xlix finally here, best believe all cameras are focused on Lynch and the reigning champs. Before kickoff, take notes from Lynch’s personal playbook.
