Leah Remini has been makes headlines all week with her mostly negative comments on Scientology, her former controversial religion, and Tom Cruise, the church's most famous member. The King of Queens alum was raised as a Scientologist and left the organization in 2013. She gave a slew of press interviews to promote her new memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, which was released on Tuesday. Cruise has remained mum about Remini's comments, while the Church of Scientology has denied claims she has made about the organization. In the book and during her interviews, Remini also talked about Cruise's ex-wife, Katie Holmes, with whom she says she »
The flashiest parts of Leah Remini's book Troublemaker thus far have been her weird stories about Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, and her involvement in the Church of Scientology. Understandable! There are a lot of creepy hard-to-look-away-from stories in Remini's 234-page memoir involving Xenu's most esteemed (former) couple. And while Troublemaker is first and foremost a book about Scientology, it's also a book by a working actor. Remini got her first acting gig at 18 on the set of Head of the Class and has worked steadily in the business for years, and she became best known for her role on The King of Queens. As a memoirist, Remini is funny and brash, and as quick to take a hit as she's willing to give it, whether it's about CBS head honcho Les Moonves telling her her last show was "shitty" or that time she confused her wedding photographer for a paparazzo. »

Leah Remini has been vocal about her experiences with Scientology—both positive and negative—and she took her admissions one step further Wednesday when she opened up to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. The King of Queens alum has admitted that there were some aspects of her former religion that did help her along the way, but ultimately her desire to remain close with her daughter caused her to leave in 2013. But when a caller asked if she regretted joining altogether, she gave a definitive answer that might surprise. "Regrets? No," she admitted. Appearing alongside Gloria Estefan, Remini added that her three decades in the organization led her to a great place in her life. »
Tag, you're it! Word of advice: Never ask Leah Remini to play hide-and-seek with her adult friends. The King of Queens actress claims in her controversial tell-all, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, that Tom Cruise once asked some of his friends — including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith — to play the children's game at his Los Angeles home. (The Smiths are not Scientologists, according to former church exec Mike Rinder, but they are close with Cruise.) Remini, wearing heels at the time, thought that the Risky [...] »

Leah Remini isn’t holding back when it comes to Scientology and its No. 1 celebrity face, Tom Cruise. In her shocking new memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Remini makes a series of claims against the church and Cruise, 53, including one about his secretly selected girlfriend, actress Nazanin Boniadi. The Iranian-born stunner, 35, joined the church at age 17 when her mom became a Scientologist.

Before Bryan Cranston went on to Emmy-winning and cult favorite fame for portraying Walter White on Breaking Bad, the versatile character actor appeared on such television shows as Malcolm in the Middle, The King of Queens, Seinfeld and Suspended Suspense. That last one was a Nineties soap opera that starred Cranston and Jimmy Fallon as brothers, and on Monday's Tonight Show, the two reminisced about the (totally fake) television show.
Suspended Suspense was canceled after three episodes because, as Cranston and Fallon tell the audience, the director demanded that each »

Remini, 45 — who was asked to bring her superstar Bff Jennifer Lopez along — says that the delayed service was uncomfortable. Holmes' tardiness, in [...] »
Leah Remini is continuing to open up about her time as a member of the Church of Scientology and recently revealed what sounds like an awkward moment between Tom Cruise, the organization's most famous member, and then-girlfriend Katie Holmes.

Snappy dresser and prolific comedian Paul F. Tompkins will return to the Fusion cable channel for a fourth season of his puppet news talk show, No, You Shut Up!
According to Variety, the fourth season will be the largest yet with an order of 25 episodes, including two presidential candidate "special reports" to air on November 5 and November 12, 2015.
Starring Tompkins (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Mr. Show) and created by former Daily Show head writer, David Javerbaum, No, You Shut Up! offers a comedic and cartoonish angle on the garden variety news talk program by having a panel of offbeat puppet characters weigh in on a number of issues, from global warming to the recent Ebola outbreak. Alongside the puppets, guests such as Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show, Better Call Saul) and Patton Oswalt (The King of Queens, Justified) appear for commentary and questions.
Although best known for his stand-up, Oswalt has appeared in various films and TV shows over the past two decades. While he has played a handful of smaller roles in such projects as Magnolia, Man on the Moon, Zoolander, Starsky & Hutch, Community and SpongeBob SquarePants, he is also known for his larger parts in such projects as The King of Queens, Big Fan, Ratatouille and Young Adult.
[The film is] about a college graduate who goes to work at The Circle, an Internet monopoly that links users’ personal emails, social media, banking and purchasing with their universal operating system. The result is one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency — which turns out not to always be a good thing.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. 2015.
Directed by Andy Fickman.
After six years of keeping our malls safe, Paul Blart has earned a well-deserved vacation. He heads to Vegas with his teenage daughter before she heads off to college. But safety never takes a holiday and when duty calls, Blart answers.
Kevin James is back as Paul Blart in the sequel that nobody asked for.
I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t mind the first film. Sure it wasn’t great but I didn’t flat out hate it either. Despite his very lackluster film career so far I do like Kevin James and think he can be funny given the right material – just look at Hitch and his years on The King of Queens. Since the first film was »

Benedict (who moderated “Supernatural’s” recent Comic-Con panel with fellow fan favorite Richard Speight Jr.) will appear in a multi-episode arc as Jonathan Lerner, the new office ultrasound technician working alongside Barton Scully (Beau Bridges) at the Masters and Johnson clinic.
