But then Gilligan had to add: “But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they’re going to find this kid’s fingerprints all over this lab and they’re going to find him within »

In the highly acclaimed series finale of Breaking Bad, TV's favorite drug dealer Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) escapes death and drives off into the night, but what's next for Walter White's sidekick? Show creator Vince Gilligan has some ideas.
"My personal feeling is that he got away," Gilligan tells GQ magazine.
But don't get your hopes up Jesse fans! The show runner adds, "But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they’re going to find this kid’s fingerprints all over this lab and they’re going to find him within a day or a week or a month. And he’s still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents. But yeah, even though that’s the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that »
Brad Paisley may have been all smiles as the host of the Cma Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 6), but just a few months back, he and his wife, "Nashville" star Kimberly Williams-Paisley, were left reeling with the knowledge they'd fallen victim to an online hoax.
The couple opened up on Wednesday's episode of "Nightline," revealing that they'd been on the receiving end of a devastating "Catfish"-esque situation. It all began when a complete stranger e-mailed the couple, presenting themselves as a mother in need. The perpetrator told the couple of her daughter who was dying of cancer, saying her only hope was to share her story.
"It sounder very sort of real," Kimberly says. "But she wasn't dying to get a hold of me. You know, that was kind of the beginning of the manipulation." The former "According to Jim" star spent the next two weeks communicating with the mother via e-mails, »

“Sergeant Damian Scott, do you have a death wish?”
If there are two styles of comedic scenes I like on Strike Back, it’s: (1) when Stonebridge and Scott are trapped behind but find time to riff about topics and (2) when Scott is flirting with a new girl.
This new clip from Strike Back Season 3 Episode 8 is something of a combination of those two styles. We have Scott and Piragova trapped in a jail cell. The two begin to argue, but Scott can’t help but add in his patented come-on lines – even when he’s the butt of the joke.
Also, if any of the Section 20 fans out there haven’t heard the news, Philip Winchester was just cast in a Joe Mazzello (The Pacific, The Social Network) indie flick, entitled Undrafted. It will be the directorial debut for Mazzello. The film will also feature Matt Barr (Hatfields and McCoys »

Jessa Duggar, 20, fifth child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, is off the market. According to People, she has entered into a courtship - that's not dating - with a family friend from church, Ben Seewald, 18, of Hot Springs, Ar.
What's the difference between dating and a courtship? According to Jim Bob, courting is spending time together in a family/group situation, where dating is more one-on-one, saving the family interaction for later on.
As for physical interaction, that is a definite no-way, not-happening. Michelle states that they were allowed "side-hugs" once they were officially courting. "Jessa and Ben have said that was the only contact they would have, when they initially greet each other," she says. If Jessa is following in Duggar courtship tradition, there won't even be any kissing until the first kiss on the wedding day, like her big brother Josh and his bride Anna (but we will say, »

Chicago — The name on Hollywood audition lists and casting sheets must be unmistakably eye-catching: Rob Belushi.
The 32-year-old actor and comedian is from yes, that Belushi family. He's the son of Jim Belushi and the nephew of the late John Belushi and for the past decade or so an aspiring actor in his own right.
Rob Belushi has guest starred on TV shows like his dad's "According to Jim" and "The Defenders." He's appeared in made-for-tv movies and graced the stand-up stage. Now he's starring on the Spike TV reality program "The Joe Schmo Show" that airs on Tuesday nights.

Man Of Steel is one of those films where rumors run wild. The first major rumor we had is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as Batman, would be making a cameo in the film to set up Justice League.

This one comes from Jim Bowers, who runs the website CapedWonder.com. According to Jim an actor from a classic Superman film will be making a cameo appearance in Man Of Steel.
