Scream Queens’ Keke Palmer Joins Fox’s Grease: Live as Marty

6 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

One of Fox’s Scream Queens won’t be screaming but singing for the network in its upcoming live musical production Grease: Live. Keke Palmer, who will be playing Zayday Williams on Ryan Murphy’s comedy-horror series this fall, is joining the cast of Grease: Live to play the sassy Pink Lady Marty Maraschino. Buzzfeed was the first to report the casting news. While some may not know, Palmer, whose TV credits include Masters of Sex, Grey’s Anatomy, and 90210, is actually very experienced when it comes to musicals and singing live. As Buzzfeed notes, she’s performed songs on film (in 2012’s Joyful Noise), on television (in 2013’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story), and on Broadway (in 2014’s Cinderella), so taking on the role of Marty won’t be anything radically new for her. Palmer joins her already cast Grease: Live co-stars Julianne Hough (Dancing With the Stars) as Sandy »

Zac Efron Shows Off Big Biceps During Hike in Hawaii

27 May 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

So this is how Zac Efron stays in such great shape!  The "Neighbors" actor was spotted hiking over Memorial Day weekend while on vacation in Oahu, Hawaii.  Efron looked casual for his outdoor exercise, wearing a white muscle shirt, striped shorts, black sneakers, a backwards baseball cap and aviators. Can you believe how buff the "High School Musical" alum looks?!  The 27-year-old actor wasn't hiking solo, though -- Zac was joined by "Pitch Perfect" star Anna Kendrick, who went makeup-free for their beach side hike.  Efron also shared a candid snap via Instagram on Monday, while standing on a mountain peak overlooking the gorgeous blue ocean.  "Trailing up the military pillbox hike in Hawaii and remembering our troops. Thank you for your service #Memorialday," he posted with the pretty picture.  Zac recently wrapped production for his latest comedy, "Dirty Grandpa," which he was off filming with Robert De Niro in Georgia back in April. »

22 May 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Vanessa Hudgens has her friend's back!  The 26-year-old, who is currently starring on Broadway in "Gigi," stopped by the Bravo clubhouse for "Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday -- and got candid in a series of questions about her Bff, Selena Gomez, with host Andy Cohen.   During the show the "High School Musical" alum was asked if she helped her "Spring Breakers" costar avoid her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, during the 2015 Met Gala earlier this month. Although the actress didn't give too much away ... it definitely sounds like she had Gomez's back at the high-fashion event!  "She's one of my best friends, and you just want to have your girlfriend's backs so that's what I did," she revealed. "We didn't like try to avoid him or anything, but no one really want to see your ex-boyfriend!"  Aside from the Jelena questions, Andy didn't let the brunette beauty get away without at »

22 May 2015 2:19 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Selena Gomez has a quality girlfriend in Vanessa Hudgens! The High School Musical alum appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, May 21, where she was asked whether she was an accomplice in recently helping Gomez avoid Justin Bieber at the 2015 Met Gala. "Getting spicy now are we?" the Broadway star, 26, replied while playing coy about the subject. "Um... I mean, not really."

Ashley Tisdale Talks Turning 30 and Having Kids: "It's Crazy! I Can't Believe It, Honestly"

21 May 2015 4:37 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's been almost 10 years since Ashley Tisdale graced our screens on High School Musical as Sharpay Evans. Even harder to believe is Tisdale is turning 30 soon! Tisdale confessed to E! News at the Elle Women in Music event presented by eBay, "It's crazy! I can't believe it, honestly." The big 3-0 doesn't freak Ashley out though, and shouldn't, might we add, because she's poised in a way we haven't seen before, and is as stunning as ever. Tisdale tells E! News, "I feel young, so it doesn't really freak me out. I think I've gotten more comfortable with my age, like I'm so much more secure, I'm married, I have an amazing husband." Ashley admitted that »

15 Doctor Who Mistakes That Nobody Will Ever Be Ok With

13 May 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Being a Doctor Who fan isn’t easy, you know. You might think it’s all gallivanting through time and space, falling in love with an endless plethora of honourable heroes and dressing up as your favourite characters at cult conventions and gatherings alike, but the truth is very, very different.

It is all of that, of course, but actually watching and celebrating the show is a mere distraction to what’s actually bubbling beneath the surface. Part of being a dedicated devotee of the world’s longest running sci-fi programme is admitting that it’s not without its faults.

Nothing is perfect, after all (even TV’s favourite Time Lord!), and you’re not a bonafide fan until you’ve accepted that, throughout his half a century in operation, mistakes have been made. Now, say it with us! Mistakes Have Been Made.

There. Doesn’t it feel great »

Ashley Tisdale Shows Off Her Hot Bod, Says Her "Main Goal" Is To Win An Emmy

12 May 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Ashley Tisdale is beauty and brains!  The "High School Musical" alum covers the June issue of Health magazine (via E!), where she opens up about the media's misconception of her life and reveals her career goals.  The blonde beauty stuns on the cover of the mag rocking black hot pants and a red crop top, which highlight the 29-year-old's fit physique.  "I think people have a perspective of me that I'm this blonde and I just like to shop," she tells Health. "I'm deeper than what people expect." Aside from acting, Tisdale also runs her own production company ... which tends to surprise people in the industry when they see how hands-on she is.  "Even with my production company, people think I have somebody else running it, but then they start to see, 'Wow, she does do it,'" the actress confesses. "I feel like it's so important to support other women and their dreams. »

Ashley Tisdale Gushes About Her Husband Christopher French: He's So Patient

12 May 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Ashley Tisdale found the perfect husband in Christopher French — especially because he’s her opposite. “He’s the most patient man I have ever met,” the June 2015 cover girl told Health magazine. “I’m not very patient.” The actress and her musician husband said “I do” in September 2014 in a secret Monday wedding. The High School Musical alum told Ryan Seacrest in an interview later that month that they decided to wed on a Monday to keep an element of privacy. “I figured like, ‘Oh, I don’t think [...] »

Zac Efron & Robert De Niro Show Off Ripped Bods on "Dirty Grandpa" Set

30 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Holy abs!   Zac Efron and Robert De Niro were spotted on the set of their new flick, "Dirty Grandpa," in Tybee, Georgia on Thursday.  Efron looked tanned and toned as he flaunted his chiseled chest wearing nothing but yellow pants. De Niro, 71, definitely held his own alongside the heartthrob while sporting beige khakis and a matching bucket hat.  The comedy will follow an uptight guy who is tricked into taking his perverted grandfather to Florida for spring break.  Julianne Hough, Aubrey Plaza and Dermot Mulroney also star alongside the "High School Musical" star and the "Meet The Fockers" actor in the funny flick.  Efron showed off his hot bod earlier this week while on the set wearing nude boxer briefs -- clearly the 27-year-old has no problem stripping down in the name of comedy!  What do you think about Robert and Zac's shirtless shot?

'Descendants' Trailer: What If Disney Villains All Had Kids?

27 April 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

What if all of the biggest villains from classic Disney animated movies had children? And what if all of those kids ended up getting sent off to school together? That's the premise of Descendants, the Disney Channel's newest bet at a small screen franchise. It will probably be immediately obvious as soon as you press play on the below trailer, but Descendants will not be appearing on a big screen near you. Instead it will be making its premiere on the Disney Channel later this summer. And that's fine, because this looks like it fits right in with the Disney Channel Original Movies like Halloweentown, High School Musical, and Phantom of the Megaplex. And that may sound like we're knocking those movies, but if you think that's the case, then you haven't...

The Rocky Horror Picture Show TV Event Remake In Development

10 April 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This summer marks the 40th anniversary of when Jim Sharman's The Rocky Horror Picture Show first hit theaters. To honor 40 years of Dr. Frank-n-Furter, perhaps you're looking to attend a midnight screening of the film, or maybe you plan on hosting your own Rocky Horror Show party. As it turns out, the folks at Fox are celebrating the occasion with a two-hour TV special remake of the seminal horror comedy musical.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is developing The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event (title not finalized), a two-hour TV special remake of 1975's The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which in turn is based on The Rocky Horror Show stage musical by Richard O'Brien. Kenneth Ortega (1993's beloved Hocus Pocus, High School Musical) is set to direct, executive produce, and choreograph the project. It looks like O'Brien's original script from his 1973 play could be used for the TV special, »

10 April 2015 1:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Closing in on its 40-year anniversary, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is about to undergo a transformation. In order to commemorate an extraordinary existence – it holds the title of longest theatrical run of any movie – a two-hour live event is heading to the small screen.

This newest iteration hails from Fox, who is revamping the cult classic musical for what’s being described as “a reimagining of the campy horror feature.” On board to usher this live extravaganza to the screen are High School Musical‘s Kenny Ortega, who will direct and choreograph the reboot, with Buffy/Angel alum Gail Berman and original producer Lou Adler both tapped to executive produce.

Per Deadline, the reboot “is expected to stick faithfully to the text and the score of the original but greatly reimagine the story visually.” That overview certainly offers Ortega a wide berth to re-appropriate the source material and hopefully »
