Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan did a lot of catching up when they crossed paths inside Miami's Liv nightclub at the Fontainebleau on Wednesday, Dec. 4. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 33, and the Freaky Friday actress, 27, "talked for almost an hour," a source tells E! News exclusively. The Art Basel party pals left no stone unturned during their mini reunion. "They talked about baby North, Miami, clothes and how Lindsay got so skinny," the source reveals. "Lindsay kept saying how much she loved baby North and Kim showed her pics of her on her phone." Lohan—who was a guest at Kardashian's August 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries—wasn't the only famous »
Being huge fans of the horror-themed sitcom "Holliston," we were intrigued when we heard of another show with a similar flavor. "Queen Gorya" is a horror-comedy television show that is currently developing its pilot. Check out the trailer. All hail the queen!

Rob Reiner's cult classic The Princess Bride looks set to be adapted for the stage by Disney Theatrical Productions. There is no word as to whether it will be a musical or a play but who wouldn't want to see someone sing "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." Variety report that Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn was behind the deal.
Disney has an impressive track record with stage adaptations of "classic" films, with Shakespeare in Love, Dumbo, Freaky Friday and Alice in Wonderland all currently in development and Aladdin previewing in Toronto, Canada before opening on Broadway in spring of 2014. Any opportunity to see Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant and Wallace Shawn's characters reunite - be it a remake, a stage play or a sequel - would be a treat.

"Wuv, twue wuv" is coming to the stage. Yes, Inigo Montoya fans, Disney is adapting The Princess Bride for the stage, Variety reports. It's not clear whether the show will be a play or a musical, nor is there a production timeline or a creative team just yet. A previous attempt to turn the novel-turned-film into a musical fell apart in 2007. Disney Theatrical Productions is also working on stage adaptations of Shakespeare in Love , Alice in Wonderland , Dumbo , and Freaky Friday . A stage version of Aladdin is heading to Broadway in the spring. “I am thrilled that the next »

The Princess Bride is set to hit the stage, Disney Theatrical Productions announced today.
It is not clear yet whether the tale of a daring pirate, a reluctant bride and an even more reluctant Fred Savage will be adapted as a play or a musical, nor has a timeline for the production been revealed, according to Variety.
Romantic Movies That Men Should Watch: 'The Princess Bride'
Lots of stuff can you qualify to be a potential gay icon. Are you a funny lady? A kickass songwriter who has officiated at gay weddings? An astounding actor who never messes up? These are traditional conduits for gay iconography, if the posters in my living room are any indication.
Today — in honor of Halloween week — I’m nominating one of the great icons of All Hallow’s Eve, the onetime scream queen and all-the-time fantastic-looking Jamie Lee Curtis. Why? While I’ve loved many of her films and enjoy reading her on the Huffington Post, my main reason is pretty simple: I think she’s cool as hell. Her interviews are always frank and sincere, she’s extremely charitable, she writes children’s books that are actually great, and you can’t compare her to anyone else. In that way she’s like Cher or Kathy Griffin, but unassuming in her casual honesty. »

Another great week for the streaming services with some good watches from this year, last year, the year before and about ten or twenty years back. I struggle to believe we can keep up this kind of momentum and variety until Christmas but we will see what happens. At the moment this column is just a pleasure to write due to the variety of stuff available.
One thing that has amazed me this week is how a worthy and quite brilliant drama like Disconnect can just squeak out on to streaming with so little fanfare. Have things really changed that much? Is relevant, timely cinema worthy of discussion made independently really such an off-putting thing to studios and distributors? A few years back when the Mubi service was introduced on the PlayStation Network, it threatened to give us free and pay per view independent cinema that you couldn’t see anywhere else. »

While we're still awaiting our Slut & The Falcon spinoff, we're just glad that Emma Watson and director Stephen Chbosky aren't waiting too long to work together after delivering last year's hugely enjoyable and somewhat underrated "Perks Of Being A Wallflower." It was the rare teen movie that got those years right, with lots of humor and heart as well, and now the pair are going to try something both youthful and a bit different. Deadline reports that Chbosky will take the helm of the Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter ("(500) Days Of Summer," "The Spectacular Now") penned adaptation of Adena Halpern's novel "29." Going by the new title, "While We're Young" (which is not to be confused by the forthcoming movie of the same name by Noah Baumbach), Watson will star in the "Freaky Friday"-ish story of a 75-year old grandma who gets her birthday wish to be 29 again, »

Sir Paul McCartney was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, and he did a pretty solid job of going full-on goofy with a silly sketch and the proclamations that he invented both the selfie and the photo-bomb. (Do you think he knew what either term meant before his segment? Debatable.) What he did not do a very good job of, though, was imitating an American accent in a bit where he and Jimmy Freaky Friday–ed each other's voices. We all have our gifts, Paul. Don't feel too bad. »

Those adorable Dalmatians better watch out, because Cruella de Vil is like a cat with nine lives. The 101 Dalmatians evildoer is working her way back to life as we speak, with Disney prepping a live-action Cruella de Vil movie.
EW has confirmed that The Devil Wears Prada’s Aline Brosh McKenna is writing the film, and Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday) has signed on to produce. Crazy hair, adorable puppies, and lots of black-and-white are sure to follow.

After a somewhat dissatisfying season 7 premiere, The Big Bang Theory followed it up with one of the funniest scenes in the show's history via "The Deception Verification."
To be perfectly honest, when it was initially revealed that Howard's unusual behavior was caused by his exposure to estrogen, I was not amused. The first jokes were focused on overdone stereotypes of women and feminine behavior. For example, "Sex, really? That's your solution for everything."
But I changed my mind soon after because overall the writers got it right and it was hilarious.
The Howard and Raj scene when he's concerned that he's developed breasts was absolutely hilarious. While getting the quotes down for that scene, I watched it several times and burst out laughing each time. There were so many subtleties that I saw something new on each viewing. Bernadette's reaction when she quietly walked in the two men was hysterical. »

Exclusive: NBC has put in development My Parents Are Too F**king Happy, a single-camera comedy from feature writer Heather Hach (Freaky Friday, What To Expect When You’re Expecting) and Krysten Ritter‘s Silent Machine Entertainment. Written by Hach and produced by Universal TV, the project is an irreverent comedy about three romantically inept siblings who have been emotionally traumatized by their parents’ blissfully perfect marriage. This marks the second sale for Silent Machine in its first development cycle under the first-look deal the company inked with Uni TV in February, in conjunction of Ritter’s casting in the NBC/Uni TV comedy pilot Assistance, which remains in contention. Silent Machine, which Ritter runs with Lindsey Liberatore, also has an NBC bowling comedy with writer Liz Vassey and Kapital Entertainment. Hach, repped by Wme, Anonymous Content and attorney Warren Dern, was nominated for a Tony Award and won the »

Freaky Friday star Lindsay Lohan posted a Throwback Thursday shot to Instagram on Sept. 12 that's just incredible in so many ways. For one thing, the troubled actress, 27, who's currently trying to turn her life and career around with help from Oprah, looks so young and innocent and fresh-faced in the shot. For another, she's posing next to fellow child actress Kirsten Dunst! The pic shows the photogenic pair, pre-Hollywood fame, modeling spring ensembles for a catalog. Dunst, who's older than Lohan by four years, wears [...] »
After Monday’s Raw, the corporate machine has really made an impact on the WWE roster. With the breakdown of the world’s largest athlete and the firing of Cody Rhodes, it definitely seems to be a theme of the wrong place wrong time with the new regime. And that carried over strangely to Main Event and Nxt as weird booking was in effect.
Josh Matthews welcomes us to Minneapolis, Minnesota alongside the returning Alex Riley. I love Riley in this role. He really does a great job in getting the sports analogies much like Jim Ross. We actually get a double dose this week as he commentates Nxt as well.
The night begins as Fandango goes against Justin Gabriel. The match itself was nothing spectacular not like Gabriel’s brand-new shirt that looks like the spokesman for Jack’s Links Beef Jerky Other than a dive to the outside »

It's finally Labor Day Weekend, which means the summer movie going season is officially closed for business starting this Monday. As summer winds down, and we head into September, many movie fans have made one thing very clear. They think this summer has been a complete wash! But is this summer any different than last summer, or the summer before that? How about a decade removed? Did we have bombs as big as The Lone Ranger, R.I.P.D. and After Earth ten years ago? (Yeah, we did, and it was called Gigli.)
We've decided to take a look at how this summer stacks up to a bygone era. Was 2003 a better year for movies? Or did we actually have it pretty good here in 2013 with Iron Man 3, Man of Steel and Elysium (just to name a few of the better one that have played out over the »
