Eva Longoria got peppy in the pool! The former Desperate Housewives actress posted a photo a wet and wild photo of herself standing on the shoulders of pal John Salazar while a child looked on at the twosome's cheer squad moves.

Shawshank Redemption celebrates 20th anniversary: The cast then and now

21 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.

The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.

Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.

Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)

Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.

Post-Shawshank he starred in films ranging from Mission to Mars, to High Fidelity and Green Lantern. His biggest career success »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Majestic and Hilarious

10 November 2014 6:53 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Eva Longoria hasn’t been much of a screen presence since Desperate Housewives ascended to that omniscient voice-over palace in the sky back in 2012, and it was nice to see her pop up in tonight’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the first of what will apparently be a three-episode arc for district attorney Sophia Perez. (In case you were wondering where Longoria’s been, the short answer is producing Everything.) It’s a shame the show couldn’t have found a slightly less-hackneyed plotline than “accidentally slept with the enemy” to introduce her, especially after Arrested Development’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus arc pretty much rode that trope into the ground, but Longoria is an appealing presence here, even if her character isn’t very fleshed-out. A brainy legal badass who happens to adore hot wings, ping-pong, and casual sex? If Amy Dunne were real, she’d probably be devising a secret plot to »

Jean-Pierre Jeunet Plotting A Phantom Of The Opera TV Series

6 November 2014 7:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Who could have predicted that Phantom of the Opera would suddenly enjoy a spike in popularity this fall? First, we heard that Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry was working on a sexy, musical spin set in the “cutthroat world of the modern-day music business” for ABC, which has been looking for a musical drama to pair with Nashville. And now, an immediately much more interesting project, based more on Gaston Leroux’s novel than the Andrew Lloyd Webber play, has emerged, with French auteur Jean-Pierre Jeunet at the helm.

Jeunet, the director behind such instant classics as DelicatessenAmelie and City of Lost Children, will develop a Phantom of the Opera series for Endemol Studios, Variety reports. Producer Tony Krantz (NBC’s DraculaMulholland Drive), who recently sold his WWII drama spec script Saboteurs to eOne Television, is providing the script.

Krantz’s script is set in 1919 and features “a »

Jeunet To Helm Rival "Phantom" TV Series

5 November 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Acclaimed filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet ("City of Lost Children," "Alien Resurrection") is teaming with "Mulholland Drive" and "24" producer Tony Krantz on Endemol Studios' TV series adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s 1909 novel "The Phantom Of The Opera".

Krantz' script is set in 1919 and re-imagines the 'phantom' as a British World War I fighter pilot who suffered catastrophic burns across most of his body. Jeunet calls it an "imaginative version" and plans to use the time period of "great social change" as a key element of the story.

Endemol's series is not to be confused with a similar adaptation of Leroux’s novel that the U.S. TV network ABC is developing with "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry. That series is set in contemporary times and will deal much more with today's cutthroat music industry world.

No word yet on which networks may carry Jeunet's show.

"" Is Jake Peralta about to take romantic aim at someone other than Amy? At Longoria last, it appears so. Desperate Housewives vet Eva Longoria will begin a three-episode guest arc on the Nov. 9 episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as a love interest for the jesting detective played by Andy Samberg. There is one teeny hiccup in these proceedings, though: She's a defense attorney. And not just any defense attorney—one who is representing a thief who Jake has arrested.
