11 July 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Oh, girl - things are about to get really steamy after the beep, thanks to Taye Diggs and John Legend. Andy Cohen had both of the impressive crooners on Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live. Not wanting their singing talents to go to waste, the host proposed an unusual, but sensual, vocal challenge: Who could leave the sexiest voicemail? "You and I" singer Legend went first. "Just leave me a message, baby. And I'll call you back," he melodically cooed with his velvet voice. This left Rent star Diggs with a tough act to follow. Instead of trying to compete, »

Should ‘Jersey Boys’ Have Cast Movie Stars?

19 June 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Hollywood brings a Broadway show to the bigscreen, the first casualty is usually the stage actors. This dates back to 1964′s “My Fair Lady,” which passed Julie Andrews over for Audrey Hepburn (with Marni Nixon dubbing the singing). Idina Menzel recently revealed that she and Kristin Chenoweth were told they were too old for the upcoming “Wicked” movie. And sometimes, recasting is inevitable: By the time “Chicago” made it in front of cameras after a protracted development process, it was more than 25 years since the original Broadway production. Director Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables” suffered a similar fate.

Which is why Clint Eastwood’s decision to keep the stage cast of “Jersey Boys” is an anomaly. John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony for originating on Broadway nine years ago, is back as Four Seasons crooner Franki Valli. »

Idina Menzel Jokes About Her Boobs Trying to Escape Her Dress on Stage: "F--k It, They're Real!"

18 June 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Idina Menzel nearly suffered a major wardrobe malfunction during her sold-out, one-night-only concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City Monday. To her credit, the stage star handled it with humor. The Tony Award winner was in the midst of performing "Take Me or Leave Me," which she sang in the 2005 movie Rent, when an audience member noticed that Menzel's leather bra was riding up. "What?" she asked. "My boob's coming out?" A crewmember then walked on stage to tend to Menzel's outfit. "She was a sexy character," Menzel said, referring to Rent's gay performance artist Maureen Johnson. The crewmember exited the stage and left Menzel alone to readjust her »

'Jersey Boys' stars marvel at Clint Eastwood's advice and their chance at big screen stardom

17 June 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York - It goes without saying that Broadway actors are rarely able to reprise their roles in the movie versions of stage musicals they've starred in.  For every Anthony Rapp in "Rent," Rita Moreno in "West Side Story" or Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in "The Producers" there are countless other films that didn't even consider actors who played the same role on the stage.  Usually it's just too risky for Hollywood execs to fund a musical without some old fashioned movie starpower on board (it's still considered a risky proposition).   Don't tell that to Clint Eastwood, however. The Academy Award-winning director of "Million Dollar Baby" and "Unforgiven" did the unthinkable with his movie adaptation of the Tony Award-winning smash "Jersey Boys": he cast actors who'd previously played their roles in the stage musical in the movie. Well, three out of the four leads, at least.  "Jersey" features John Lloyd Young, »

The 8 craziest things you missed at Idina Menzel's Radio City Music Hall concert

17 June 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Take her or leave her, living Broadway legend Idina Menzel gave a sold-out crowd of roughly 6,000 fans a show to remember Monday — when she performed at Radio City Music Hall for the first time in a one-night-only concert.

Idina Menzel: An Unofficial Countdown to “Let It Go” Live was, of course, incredible. The Tony winner showed off her mind-blowing vocal power in a variety of songs, kicking off the night with a chill-inducing “Defying Gravity” and segueing into everything from an Ethel Merman medley (the petition for Menzel to play Mama Rose in Gypsy one day begins now) to Radiohead’s “Creep. »

'Frozen's' Idina Menzel scores high debut for new Broadway cast album, 'If/Then'

11 June 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Idina Menzel is a good luck charm for Broadway cast recordings.  The original cast album for “If/Then,” her current show, debuts at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 today. That makes it the highest debut for a Broadway cast album since 1996 when “Rent,” which also starred Menzel, debuted at No. 19, according to Billboard. “If/Then” sold 15,000 copies in its first week, as opposed to “Rent’s” 43,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Only four original Broadway cast albums have hit the Top 20 in the last 30 years:  the other two didn’t star Menzel: “The Book of Mormon,” and “Dreamgirls.” As much success Menzel has on Broadway, her greatest success has come in movie soundtracks:  Her Oscar-winning song “Let It Go,”  from “Frozen,” reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while the “Frozen” soundtrack  stayed No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for more than a dozen weeks.  It is this year’s top-selling album of 2014 so far, »

Idina Menzel sure knows how to pick ‘em.

The wickedly talented star of Frozen just made Billboard history — again. The original Broadway cast recording of If/Then debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard charts, the highest debut for a Broadway cast recording since 1996 when a little show called Rent did the same thing.

Did we mention that Menzel starred in both?
