This is the sound of David Letterman retiring.
Over the last few weeks, viewers of the veteran latenight host’s “Late Show” on CBS have been treated to a series of once-in-a-lifetime musical moments: John Mayer crooning Don McLean’s “American Pie”; Tracy Chapman doing a stark rendition of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me”; John Fogerty doing a punky mashup of his Creedence Clearwater Revival hits; and an enigmatic Bob Dylan crooning the standard “The Night We Called It A Day,” an appropriate shout-out to a TV figure who will make his last “Late Show” appearance during a late-afternoon taping Wednesday. And, in a nod to Letterman’s stated fondness for acerbic songwriter Warren Zevon, the show has in its final days featured a rendition of “Mutineer” by Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires and a digital-only take on “Desperadoes Under The Eaves” by Dawes.

Tara Reid has hinted a new 'American Pie' film is in the works. The 39-year-old actress starred in the 1999 original but has now suggested a fifth theatrical film could be added to the series, with the movie set in Las Vegas. Speaking on Kiis FM's 'Kyle & Jackie O Show', she said: ''There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas.'' The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star - who played Vicky in the films - added she is eager to return to the franchise, as the theatrical films have grossed more than $989 million worldwide. It was previously believed 'American Reunion', which hit cinema screens in 2012 following a nine-year hiatus, would be the final film in the series, but bosses were reportedly impressed by how it performed at the box office and are keen to capitalise on its success. However, the ' »
The fourth American Pie film to make it inside a cinema - American Reunion - may not have been a huge hit in America, but it certainly delivered elsewhere in the world. The movie took $57m in the States, adding a more than healthy $177m elsewhere on the planet. It would be fair to say its $234m box office haul more than paid for the film's production. And for a decent party afterwards.
Around the time of the movie's release, there was chatter about a potential American Pie 5, although things have been quiet on that front for a while. However, in a new interview, Tara Reid - who played Vicky in the films - has hinted there may be some progress.
"There's actually talks", she confirmed to the Kyle & Jackie O Show in Australia, »
'About a Boy,' with Hugh Grant and Baby 'About a Boy' movie review: Some men should remain islands On the surface, Chris and Paul Weitz's 2002 movie About a Boy has a profound, affecting premise. No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. With the above statement, seventeenth-century English poet John Donne reached beyond the apparent isolation of each individual by affirming the invisible oneness that encompasses all of humankind – and, why not, all living creatures. »

Tara Reid has hinted that a fifth theatrical film in the series is in the works, and will go down the Hangover route by taking place in Las Vegas.
"There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas," she told Kiis FM's Kyle & Jackie O Show today (May 11).
Reid played Vicky in the American Pie films, and when asked if she would return for a fifth, she responded with a passionate "yes".
Not including the straight-to-dvd spin-off films, the American Pie series has grossed a combined $989 million worldwide.
Success in Hollywood is a tricky game! Elizabeth Banks has enjoyed a super successful career as an actress and is now jumping behind the camera as she directs the highly anticipated a cappella sequel "Pitch Perfect 2". But getting there wasn't easy, as the 41-year-old admits that not every actress in her "age group" has been so lucky. "There was a group of us girls coming up. A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not," she explains in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn't all make it. We're not all still here. I do love 'Sharknado,'" she quickly added. Ironically, the two have a lot more in common than one would think. The "American Pie" actress starred in a recent parody of "The Hunger Games" called"The Hungover Game," spoofing Banks' character Effie. »

The 2011 ice hockey comedy Goon was, by distance, one of the most violent films of that year. It was also really rather good. Starring Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel, the plan for some time had been to make a sequel to the movie. And finally, that sequel is happening.
Seann William Scott confirmed the news on Reddit, where he's just done one of its Ama whatsits. He wrote that "I did a bit of fight training for Goon. For Goon 2, I’ve been fight-training for the past month, and next month in May I start working with an Mma fighter, and then some skating (obviously, a lot of skating). We start shooting Goon 2 in mid-June, and if everybody does their jobs and we execute the amazing script »
Few would have expected Goon, a film about a flailing hockey player attempting to make an impact as an Enforcer in the minor leagues, to carve out an audience when it released in 2011. But carve out an audience it did, and now star Seann William Scott is dusting off his kit to take to the ice once more, as it’s been confirmed that Goon 2 will begin filming in mid-June.
Speaking during a Reddit Ama, the American Pie actor offered up a brief update about the status of the sequel, the intensity of the training, and why the hockey continuation could prove to be a hit amongst fans if the script by Jay Barauchel is given the proper treatment. Here’s what William Scott had to say on the matter at hand:
“Heh! Well, I did a bit of fight training for Goon. For Goon 2, I’ve been fight-training for the past month, »

“Live from New York, it’s the Tribeca Film Festival.”
I’m sure that is how some people’s coverage of this year’s Tff started off. It makes sense considering the opening night film was a documentary about Saturday Night Live! Plus, some writers can’t help but resort to puns and cheap gimmicks to appear witty. Hell, I used it and haven’t even seen the film yet. But my TriBeCa experience didn’t start off with belly laughs. Instead it began with a double feature of films about shitty parents.
The Adderall Diaries stars James Franco as an author struggling with writer’s block, which could be the inspiration for my deconstruction of an opening to this recap. The film is based on the memoir of the same title by Stephen Elliott. Franco’s version of Elliott deals with drug addiction (mostly Adderall), a Bdsm fetish that could ruin a burgeoning relationship, »

Cougar Town just aired its final episode on Tuesday, but it seems Courteney Cox is already onto bigger and better things. No, sadly, she's not orchestrating a Friends reunion. But she is releasing her big directorial debut. The new flick is called Just Before Go, and it's certainly a bit of a change for the actress. The film follows Ted Morgan (played by American Pie's Seann William Scott), a depressed man who's returned to his hometown to settle up a few scores before comitting suicide. See? Dark. But Just Before I Go isn't all tears—there's a good amount of that signature Courteney Cox irreverent humor. There's the run-in with Ted's »
Some flights are annoying and horrible. And some flights become the starting point of a wild and crazy adventure. Enter rapper Crichy Crich and Tara Reid. Crichy Crich was on a Virgin America flight flying back to Los Angeles from Miami, where he attended the Ultra Music Festival, when he ultimately ended up meeting the American Pie star and getting her name tattooed on him! Wait, what?! Yeah, we couldn't make this up. Clearly, a lot of questions arise, so luckily Crich filled E! News in on everything that went down that magical day (and yes, he says a lot of alcohol was involved). "Virgin Airlines has this thing where you can invite people to a chat on their seats. Me and my buddy Ross thought it »
Tara Reid is making headlines after photos of the 39-year-old actress showing off her bikini bod on the beach in Miami surfaced today. The images, which see the Sharknado star all smiles as she flaunts her figure, have sparked concern among fans due to Reid's alarmingly thin frame. Sporting a colorful bikini and makeup at the beach, the American Pie star, who is no stranger to posting swimsuit shots, displayed her super-skinny thighs and her extremely tiny shape while strolling on the beach. Photos: See more celebs in bikinis Reid revealed via her Instagram that she was vacationing in Miami for a friends' Bachelorette party, and she appeared to be having a blast »
Just beachy! Tara Reid made a splash in Miami on Monday, March 30, when she threw on a bikini and hit up the coast for some sun, sand, and surf. The American Pie alum, 39, displayed her thin frame in a paisley and pink-striped two-piece bathing suit, which boasted a plunging halter-style top and matching low-slung bottoms. Her long blonde hair hung straight down her back, and she wore a silver watch and heart-shaped necklace with neon-green nail polish. Reid looked thinner than she has in recent months [...] »
"It can be fun, but it's not a game... What you want is a partner to return the ball."
You know the lovable father from "American Pie" (1999)? Turns out, he was originally super creepy. The part of Jim's dad, played by veteran actor Eugene Levy, was mostly improvised to give him that "real, corny dad" feel. And thankfully, we still got plenty of amazing -- and awkward -- moments from the goofy patriarch.

At last, the question on everyone’s lips has been answered! At least, the Star Wars-related question. The one related to the Star Wars spin-off films. Which were strongly rumoured amidst the news that Disney had bought the rights to George Lucas’s space opera franchise of diminishing returns, and finally confirmed a while ago now.
Then the slow drip of news came through, with American Pie and The Golden Compass’s Chris Weitz in line to write one of the multiple spin-offs, and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards all set up to direct. That was all anyone knew, however, with the rumours as to their plots being everything from a Young Han Solo story to a bounty hunter team up.

Born on the 24th March 1974 (making her forty years old, can you believe that?!), in Washington D.C., Alyson Hannigan is the daughter (and only child) of Emilie Haas, a Jewish real estate agent, and Al Hannigan, a truck driver with Irish ancestry. Her parents divorced when she was just two years old and she was brought up by her mother in Atlanta, Georgia as a result.
Hannigan began performing very early – even as a baby she appeared in photoshoots and an instructional video for parenting – and started appearing in commercials when she was just four years old.
After a handful of minor television jobs, she made her first major film appearance in 1988’s My Stepmother Is An Alien, in which she starred alongside the likes of Kim Basinger, Dan Aykroyd and Seth Green – the latter whom played her boyfriend, just like he would go on to do »

So…Tara Reid is sporting a whole new look! The Sharknado star posted a photo of herself on Instagram that showed her arms and neck completely covered in tattoos. Reid seems to be sporting the ink temporarily for a new project, however, and isn't jumping onto the permanent bandwagon just yet. "Thank you @hannyeisen for your awesome tattoo make up for me it's awesome you're the best," the blond actress wrote alongside the snapshot. Eisen, who works as a body painter and makeup artist, also shared a picture of the American Pie star flaunting her latest accessories.

The Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off, which will be the first big screen movie in the franchise not to be included as part of a trilogy, is heating up and should start shooting this spring for a 2016 release date. It will go into production at Pinewood Studios in England just as Spectre begins to wrap. As you may know, original screenwriter Gary Whitta was recently replaced by American Pie co-creator Chris Weitz. Now, speaking with /film about his work on Disney's live-action Cinderella, the writer opens up about this first in a long line of planned Star Wars standalone movies, and he tells fans to 'expect everything!'
Chris Weitz doesn't go into specifics about the storyline, but we've heard recently that the movie will either involve a young Han Solo, Boba Fett, space pirates, or a spy mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. In fact, »
