The guy who played NFL star Michael Oher in "The Blind Side" says he understands why Oher would have beef with the movie ... but says at the end of the day -- Get Over It!!!! Oher recently bitched about the movie to Espn ... saying it hurt his NFL career because it set unrealistic expectations -- "People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie. They don't really see the »

With the possible exception of the Black Panther, no other black franchise has garnered as much “it’s going to be a major movie or TV show” hype within the fan rumor mill than Static Shock. Finally the Black Panther is going to happen. As for Static Shock … kinda.
In 2018 the Black Panther movie will be released from what is now the best superhero moviemaker bar none, Marvel Studios. Static will make his way to the Internet as part of Warner Bros’ Digital arm later this year.
I find that rather disappointing.
More than any other black property, Static pretty much already owns the Internet. The massive amount of love Static has on the net is nothing short of extraordinary. In the 22 years since Static burst on the scene the admiration for the character has only grown and at no point shows signs of waiving.
That’s simply remarkable and »

Pre-credit sequence. It's Night 35 and the Top 5 castaways return to camp. Carolyn is giddy. Mike is incredulous. Rodney is offended that Carolyn didn't tell him about the Idol, which is funny since Carolyn's offended that Rodney voted for her. They agree that without Idols or advantages remaining, everybody wants Mike out, which is especially funny since Mike was the only person to support Carolyn at the previous Tribal. But loyalty doesn't go very far when you're this deep into "Survivor." Mother-Lover. Tonight's Reward is an individual challenge and it's really only worthwhile if Rodney loses. No Rewards for Rodney! It's a complicated challenge involving tiles, a number puzzle, shuffle board and other stuff. Wanna know what they're playing for? Love! Carolyn's husband comes out and she cries. It's a fairy tale marriage. Everybody cries. Mike's mom comes out and he cries. It's a fairy tale mother-son relationship. »

Matthew McConaughey hit the stage at the University of Houston on Friday to deliver an advice-filled commencement speech to this year's graduates. The actor spoke in the school's new football stadium, where his dad once played for the team, and he shared some life lessons reminiscent of those he's dropped into his award show acceptance speeches over the past few years. "Do not fall into the entitlement trap of feeling like a victim," he said at one point. "You are not. Get over it and get on with it. Yes, most things are rewarding when you break a sweat to get them." Matthew also told the graduates to remove the word "unbelievable" from their vocabulary, and he talked about the difference between happiness and joy. For his appearance, he was paid $120,000, all of which he's donating to his charity, the Just Keep Livin Foundation, which helps high school students lead healthy, »
It was only a matter of time, but the first food-related disagreement has occurred in the Big Brother: Timebomb house.
Harriet Jackson approached Adjoa Mensah about the current "food situation" in the house, explaining that she wanted to say something before but didn't because of the way Adjoa handled the nominations news.
Harriet said: "I think the food situation, I think sometimes you're forgetting... from yesterday I didn't want to say it in front of everyone because of how hard you took yesterday."
Adjoa replied: "That's fine, I won't steal food anymore... I won't eat two eggs a day anymore... whether you like me or not... I couldn't care less... cause I picked up too many crisps...
"I have two eggs a day... only two eggs a day... I don't want to argue... I'm the most generous f**king person that you could ever meet... even though I eat a lot. »
Simon Gross is feeling very excited about his upcoming stint on Big Brother. "It's just more and better than I imagined, but I haven't even done it yet," he said. "Just the build up and everything is more than I ever imagined. It's overpowering but in a good way." And that's just while he's stuck in a hotel room, being chaperoned so he doesn't spy his fellow housemates.
But even though the show hasn't started yet, Simon's already been causing controversy thanks to the #abusedbysimongross hashtag on Twitter, which sees actors hitting out at his behaviour towards them. We sat down with him for an exclusive chat to discuss that, his previous bankruptcy, why he thinks young people have lost their manners and why he doesn't care if you think he's a wannabe after his time on Hell's Kitchen...
1. Simon has done lots of panto, so he's probably prepared for Big Brother. »
Dolph Ziggler has posted a lengthy rant on his twitter. It appears to take some veiled shoot digs at Sheamus, the man he’ll be facing this Sunday at WWE’s Extreme Rules event. It also appears to express frustration with his own spot in the company.
The post in full –
“I’ve got the boyz to make the noize! Years in the marking, almost as long as we’ve been waiting for you to connect! Trust me, he connects. Frustrated, outdated, I really wanna be overrated. Overachievement and charisma almost equal being tall and wearing marital beads on your mouth, yet I’m the one with the attitude problem. It’s not `what can the system do for you,’ it’s `what can you do for the system’. You’ve got 5 months to prove that “I” need “You” This is for everyone screwed over bc they did »

A suggestion flashed by on the Internet last week as Streep was about to increase her already record number of acting nods – which now span an astonishing 37 years -- for her critically applauded role as the Witch in the musical “Into the Woods. “ It was put forth that the woman who is considered the world’s greatest living actress should perhaps withdraw from any future Academy Award races in order to allow others to have a go at a trophy. The only proper response to such a notion? Nonsense. “If you are doing the work, you are in the game,” says Jeanine Basinger, movie historian and founder of the film studies program at Wesleyan University. “It’s not as if she is simply playing Meryl Streep. She is being recognized for real performances. Get over it. That is like telling LeBron James to sit on the bench. If you take yourself out, »

When the name Kurt Angle is mentioned, there are a few images that immediately come to mind. His gold medal win in the 1996 Olympics, his five star match with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 21, and him famously driving a milk truck into Raw spraying The Alliance with a hose full of vitamin D.
From his world class career as an amateur through his meteoric rise in WWE to his Hall Of Fame induction in Tna, Angle has made a meaningful impression in almost every arena in the world of wrestling. Certainly no one has forgotten the lasting image of him throwing Shane McMahon through the glass during their epic encounter at the 2001 King of The Ring.
Angle has reached heights that no other wrestler could realistically hope to achieve. And Tna has gone to great lengths to secure his services and essentially promote him as the face of their company. »
