How American Idol's James Durbin Manages Life With Tourette's and Asperger's

26 July 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When James Durbin was on the 2011 season of American Idol, he stood out for two reasons: his high energy rock performances and the fact that he was living with Tourette Syndrome and Asperger Syndrome. And while his tics were apparent on camera, but there was one surefire cure for them - singing. Cut to five years later, and Durbin is still singing and touring (he's just released a new album, Riot on Sunset) and living in Santa Cruz, California, with his wife Heidi Lowe, son Hunter, 7, and daughter Kinzee Cruz, 19 months.

Could Fox News Serve as New Perch for Rebekah Brooks?

26 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Could Fox News offer new opportunity for Rebekah Brooks?

The red-haired news executive was one of the people called to account for an infamous episode of “phone hacking” by personnel at News of the World, part of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. empire, and resigned under duress as chief executive of the company’s British operations in 2011. She was reinstated at News Corp. in 2015, and continues to be a favorite of the media mogul, according to a person familiar with his companies. That durable relationship has given rise to some speculation that Brooks could be considered as a candidate to take the reins at a different kind of Murdoch favorite: Fox News Channel.

To be sure, there’s no indication she is in the running. But she is a Murdoch family loyalist, one of the qualities that some people familiar with 21st Century Fox have suggested would be important as the media conglomerate determines who should run »

Let's say you're a six-person improv group — we'll call you "The Commune" — and you've been kicking around the New York City comedy scene for a while. You're drawing a decent crowd, playing the good nights in a Ucb-level venue downtown, and because you've been doing this together for so long, you're hitting maximum performer mind-meld onstage. Then one of your members gets recruited for an SNL-like show called Weekend Live. The rest of you are still left living gig to gig. What's a troupe to do?

That's the central premise of Don't Think Twice, »

Appreciating Garry Marshall, a Giant Whose Work Revealed His Big Heart

19 July 2016 9:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s unclear what we’ve done to make the universe angry, but Death keeps taking legends from us: David Bowie, Prince, and now Garry Marshall. Marshall is gone at age 81.

Marshall did far more than create hit shows and cast actors who went on to be enormously influential in their own rights. He also appeared in a host of movies and films, always giving off the vibe of your cool, understanding, funny uncle, a guy who is game for just about anything and always encouraging. Who can say they worked on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” one of the foundational shows of television, and also voiced a character on “BoJack Horseman” and made appearances on “Louie”? It’s not just that Marshall wanted to stay relevant. He understood that those shows boast the same kind of finely honed humanism that was at the core of his best work.

Rupert Murdoch’s Billion-Dollar Headache: Who Can Replace Roger Ailes at Fox News?

18 July 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rupert Murdoch has over the years grappled with many formidable challenges at his companies, like the decline of “American Idol” at Fox, or a phone-hacking scandal in London that forced the shuttering of his newspaper News of the World. Now he must solve a problem with considerable stakes: How will Fox News Channel operate if the man who built it is no longer there?

Fox News Channel is believed to be the most profitable asset in Murdoch’s wide-ranging empire, which also includes the Fox broadcast network and the massive Sky satellite service. People who know the executive say he believes nothing is more important to his legacy than Fox News, which has grown into the nation’s most-watched cable-news outlet after fighting for its launch in 1996.

Fox News Chief Roger Ailes is in the cross-hairs of a sexual-harassment suit filed earlier this month by Gretchen Carlson, an anchor whose contract wasn’t renewed in June. A »

Kelly Clarkson's Daughter River Rose Might Not Be Your Next American Idol (But Her Career Choice Is Totally Fitting!)

Kelly Clarkson has a budding model on her hands!  The pop star's 2-year-old daughter might not want to follow in her mama's footsteps after all, as a recent impromptu photo shoot just proved the camera sure does love River Rose.

As World Events Turn Dark, Moviegoers Can’t Get Enough Talking Animals

15 July 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood is vexed by the lack of home runs at the box office this summer. But there is a bright spot amidst countless forecasts of trouble for the film industry. Two of the biggest smashes of the season so far, Disney’s “Finding Dory” and Universal Studios’ “The Secret Life of Pets,” are a reminder that animation is the one genre that seems to be unstoppable at the movies.

Beyond their reliance on pixelated performances, “Dory” and “Pets” share another similarity. They are both stories centered on animals that yammer about their personal lives, bicker and act like human beings. Against a questionable year of ticket sales, where even movie stars like Johnny Depp and George Clooney have come up short, audiences seem to prefer their personalities with tails.

These cuddly creatures are serving as an antidote to dark times in the world. Some executives in Hollywood are starting to »

Emmys 2016 Trivia: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Shared A Nod & 20 Other Wild Things About This Year’s Nominations

14 July 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made history Thursday morning. The pals were nominated in the Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy category for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

That’s not unusual — “SNL” hosts are nominated for Emmys all the time. But here’s what’s unique: Poehler and Fey were nominated as a single, combined entity. Earlier this year, the TV Academy accepted their joint submission, and their names appeared together on nomination ballots.

That’s never happened in an acting category before because, well, a person is generally one person. But this was a unique circumstance: “SNL” guest hosts are eligible for guest star Emmys – but usually even comedy teams are nominated separately. (For example, Keegan-Michael Key is nominated this year for “Key & Peele” in the supporting comedy actor category, but Jordan Peele is not. »
