Amanda Bynes' Very Own Show Premiered 15 Years Ago – And Et Was There

16 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Back in 2001, we talked to the rising young star on the set of Nickelodeon's 'The Amanda Show.' What went wrong?

It's hard to believe but October 16 marks 15 years since The Amanda Show -- starring a then-13-year-old Amanda Bynes -- first premiered on Nickelodeon.

Airing from 1999 to 2002, the All That spin-off show turned Bynes, now 28, into a star.

But clearly, it hasn't all been smooth sailing from there. In the last month, the troubled actress has made daily headlines with erratic behavior, explosive allegations and – on October 10 – a return to being held at a psychiatric treatment facility, potentially for up to a year.

Both Bynes' mental health struggles and trouble with the law are well-documented, but when did it all start going south for the troubled child star?

Amanda Bynes Vehemently Denies Going Crazy

10 October 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Now that Amanda Bynes is back on Twitter, she'd like to speak for herself.

The former fashion student and aspiring psychologist is threatening to sue two tabloids. "I am not insane and they lied about me in every way," the 28-year-old Hairspray star tweeted Wednesday night. "They continue to write lies about me and it really hurts my feelings because they are calling me insane and I'm actually really smart...The true definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results...So I'm laughing all the way to the bank because I will sue them all."

The ex-actress seemingly confirmed at least one tabloid story regarding her engagement, however. "I am getting married and my boyfriend and I are going to be on the cover People magazine," she tweeted, "because although they have made up things about me before, they will omit any error they've made. »

Oh, James Marsden, you can sing to us any time.

The actor may be known for his ability to portray a wide variety of characters on the big screen, but the blue-eyed hunk also has an impressive set of pipes.of course, anyone who watched Hairspray or even 27 Dresses (Ba-ba-ba-Benny and the Jets!) would know that.

Ryan Seacrest knew that, which is why he put Marsden, who was promoting his upcoming film Best of Me, on the spot during his morning radio show and asked the Hollywood stud to lend his vocals alongside Lady Antebellum, who were also in studio, for a fun little sing-along.

Here's Christopher Walken as Captain Hook in 'Peter Pan Live'

24 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Shiver me timbers -- Captain Hook is ready to do some dastardly deeds.

NBC released the first image of the infamous pirate, played by Christopher Walken, from its upcoming "Peter Pan Live." The musical adaptation's executive producer, Neil Meron, posted the picture on Twitter:

wow!!!! #allisonwilliams #chriswalken @craigzadan @broadwayworld #PeterPanLive Dec. 4 pic.twitter.com/mzObXroj1i

- Neil Meron (@neilmeron) September 24, 2014

Walken has a villainous gleam in his eye as he brandishes both hook and sword at Peter Pan ("Girls" star Allison Williams). And might he seem like he's ready to break into song and dance? Eh, maybe.

"I'm not a good singer," he told Entertainment Weekly. But that's Ok, because "the songs are done almost like patter. Think Rex Harrison in 'My Fair Lady.'"

It's not as if Walken is a total musical newbie; he tapped in 1991's "Pennies From Heaven" and duetted with John Travolta in 2007's "Hairspray" movie. »

John Waters Looks Back: 'I Was Worse Than Ed Wood'

5 September 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"In the early days, people seemed to believe that we were the people in Pink Flamingos, that we lived in a trailer and ate dog shit," John Waters says. "And we really weren't, obviously. We'd be in prison if we were. But it was a good reaction. It meant the movie worked."

For the past half a century, the Baltimore-born filmmaker and his pencil mustache have gleefully stood at the vanguard of vulgarity in cinema. Movies like his 1970 freak show Multiple Maniacs and his 1972 offering Pink Flamingos nauseated audiences when »
