Yep, this banged beauty is Ali Larter!The 37-year-old actress posted her high school portrait on Twitter today as part of Throwback Thursday.The beautiful blonde played a high school student for much of her early film career, with her breakout role in the 1999 film "Varsity Blues" as Paul Walker's cheerleader girlfriend Darcy. She also played a student in "Drive Me Crazy" and "Final Destination."But she's best known for playing twins Niki and Tracy Strauss on "Heroes." Nowadays, Ali has another role, mom. She gave birth to son Theodore in 2010.Getting her body back to pre-baby shape wasn't easy. After gaining 45 pounds, Ali had to rely upon food delivery services and lots of exercise to lose weight. "I tend to work out for an hour about four days a week, and I love to run," she told Health this month. "It's the quickest way, with my busy schedule, »

Crowd-funding sites have helped pay fora new video game console, a customizable watch and a copy of Lionel Richie's head, bringing the dreams of many creative individuals to life. They have also become a resource for creative-types who do not fit the struggling artist mold.
Actor and director Zach Braff and the film-makers behind Veronica Mars raised more than $2m for their respective projects this year. Last Saturday, Spike Lee reached his $1.25m goal to fund a new film. Their success has rankled those who believe it is unfair for celebrities who already have the backing of major studios to ask fans to pay for their projects.
Kickstarter, the more popular crowd-funding site for celebrities, said its job is to bring creative projects to life and that these »

This week's '90s-set new release, The To Do List, has inspired me to pay tribute to the magical comedies of the decade. Can you tell your '90s high school movies apart? See how well you know them by matching the picture to the title. Question 1 of 5 ? Name that movie: Drive Me Crazy Bring It On Buffy the Vampire Slayer Jawbreaker »

The success Zach Braff and the Veronica Mars movie found on Kickstarter seemed to presage a trend of celebrities using the crowdfunding site to raise money for projects. But, as Melissa Joan Hart learned the hard way, that tactic apparently only works for celebrities people still care about. The 1990s star of such teen fare as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Clarissa Explains It All wanted to snag her first leading role since the 1999 movie Drive Me Crazy , so she went on Kickstarter looking for $2 million with which to make a movie, Darci's Walk of Shame , starring herself. »

Last week, the Internet went crazy expressing either support or ennui after Zach Braff announced he'd be seeking $2 milllion on Kickstarter for his follow-up to "Garden State." But few noticed that Melissa Joan Hart, the actress famous for teenage roles in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," "Clarissa Explains it All," and the movie "Drive Me Crazy" (the one best known for its Britney Spears theme), launched a Kickstarter campaign for her new star vehicle "Darci's Walk of Shame." She's described the film as a "Funny, sexy, screwball, adult, romantic comedy. No magic. No black cat. Enormous fun." Those wishing to point out the flaws of celebrities on Kickstarter would do well to direct their attention away from Zach Braff (though his Kickstarter distribution plan has its flaws as I wrote about last week), and take a closer look at Hart's campaign. First, the pitch is bad. This has nothing to do »

What.s good for Veronica Mars better be good for Melissa Joan Hart, as well. As you can see above, the one-time Sabrina the Teenage Witch wants to reunite with director Tibor for Darci's Walk of Shame, a romantic-comedy in line with Hart.s Drive Me Crazy that needs some Kickstarter love to get going.

Fox’s hit dramedy Glee returns tomorrow after its long winter hiatus.
After combing through the archives, I’ve chosen the 10 best covers throughout the show’s four-season run.
One of Glee’s best attributes is its ability to put a story with a song, giving it more power than a radio can. If a song gets the appropriate arrangement, a compelling back story and powerful pipes, the combination can be overwhelming and memorable.
10. Flo Rida’s “Whistle” (as performed in season four, episode eight: “Thanksgiving”)
The most recent song on the list, “Whistle” shows us that The Dalton Academy Warblers can exist without the beloved Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss) at the helm. This rendition of Flo Rida’s overtly sexual ditty at Sectionals appropriately displays »
