Mariah Carey to play Vanessa Hudgens' mother? Ouch.

31 December 2009 8:46 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Can you see Mariah Carey as Vanessa Hudgens' mother?

Why not? She's 40 and Vanessa is 21. But that's not the point.

The point is whether Mariah wants to be seen as a 40-year-old mom in a new movie about a mother/daughter singing duo who audition for an "American Idol" kind of show. 

It could be a little more than the Diva can handle. Carey, who received good reviews for her small role in "Precious," is reported to be considering teaming up with the "High School Musical" cutie for the flick.

And it sounds like a Dream Team. So what's the hold up?

The only sticking point seems to be whether Mariah feels comfortable playing the mom of a teenager. She's reportedly a little sensitive when it comes to her age.

She could always use Sofia Vergara's excuse. But despite the annoying maternal business, it's possible that  Mariah may just succumb to the temptation. »

Despite her eagerness to do another film, the "Obsessed »

Hit Us television drama Glee, which boasts two big-selling albums and huge ratings, is on its way to UK screens

It has stormed the Us television ratings, been hailed as the best new show of the year and spawned two hit albums. Now the musical comedy Glee – an upbeat but spiky drama about a school's struggling singing club – arrives next month to liven up UK screens in a whirl of jazz hands and power ballads.

Watched by more than 8 million fans – who call themselves "gleeks" – during its first-season run in the Us this autumn, the show follows the attempts of an idealistic Ohio teacher to mould a bunch of high-school misfits into an award-winning "show choir".

Its feelgood mix of optimism, powerhouse vocals and dark humour immediately won over the critics when it debuted in May. Entertainment Weekly described it as "so good – so funny, so bulging with vibrant characters »

Disney Sees Superhero Dollars in Marvel Unknowns

28 December 2009 12:02 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Los Angeles -- Moviegoers have shown a willingness to be entangled by Spider-Man's web over and over again. Now, as Disney prepares to buy the comic-book powerhouse Marvel, it faces the question of whether fans will also get attached to characters as obscure as Ant-Man and Iron Fist.The Walt Disney Co. is making a $4.2 billion bet that they will as it nears completion of its acquisition of Marvel Entertainment Inc. this week. The cash-and-stock deal brings those characters and thousands of others to an entertainment empire that already includes Mickey Mouse, Kermit the Frog and Hannah Montana.Disney's biggest challenge will be to get enough people enthused about second-string superheroes to justify the price - about $1.2 billion, or 40 percent, more than what Marvel's stock was worth when the deal was announced Aug. 31.The high price means Disney will have to find new ways to earn revenue from Marvel - »

24 December 2009 8:12 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

When a plea for common decency won't work, Vanessa Hudgens is hoping a lawsuit will.

Yes, that's right. The "High School Musical" star is getting litigious over some nude "self portrait photographs" that have been posted on the Internet, reports TMZ.com.

VHud is suing Butter Media, the owners of Moejackson.com, for posting and refusing to take down nude pics she took or herself on her cell phone.

How did these intimate photos get leaked? That's a mystery even to the Vanessa. "The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent," reads the lawsuit.

But here's an interesting twist: She doesn't mention that the pictures are nude in the lawsuit, but she has registered the photos with the U.S. Copyright Office. So the website could be found to violate copyright and be forced to take the photos down. »

Hudgens Sues Over Nude Snaps

24 December 2009 4:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is suing the owners of a website over the publication of photos which appear to show the actress naked.

The 21 year old was embroiled in scandal earlier this year when saucy snaps, which appeared to show her undressed, surfaced online.

Hudgens' lawyers battled to have the photos removed from the web and now she's taking legal action against one particular website which allegedly refused to take the pictures down.

She has filed suit against bosses at Moejackson.com, alleging a series of "self portrait photographs" taken in a private home with a cellphone were published on the site and remained on view even after her lawyers claimed copyright violation and ordered the pictures to be removed, according to TMZ.com.

The papers state, "The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent."

The celebrity website is reporting that Hudgens' team has registered the nude photos with the U.S. Copyright Office.

She is seeking damages and an injunction to order the site to remove the pictures.

It's the second time Hudgens has been at the centre of a nude snaps scandal. She was previously left red-faced in 2007 when pictures taken of her posing provocatively both nude and in lingerie appeared online - forcing the Disney star to issue a public apology. »

The X Factor, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, How Do You Solve a Problem Like Lolita? and Jamie's Family Christmas | TV review

19 December 2009 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Simon Cowell gave us plenty of stuffing on ITV as the BBC offered sport without personality, while an engaging BBC4 film tackled Nabokov's troubling obsession, says Phil Hogan

The week before Christmas is always what you might call a yawning chasm, with schedulers correctly assuming that everybody will be out shopping or being sick on the train so what's the point of wasting perfectly good programmes that will do nicely on Boxing Day evening with a white sauce?

Of course, there wasn't literally nothing on. The biggest slow-burner of the season went bang on Sunday night courtesy of The X Factor final, with young dreamers Olly and Joe still holding to the idea that you can have anything you want just by wanting it, which is a novelty to those of us who remember when "I want never gets" was the nation's favourite article of faith. But which of the boys wanted it most? »

Review: Me And Orson Welles

18 December 2009 1:35 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Orson Welles will probably forever be considered one, if not the best directors to ever live. His Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons are considered to be two of the greatest films ever made. Not only was he an amazing director, but also an accomplished actor and in theater, film and radio. Me And Orson Welles picks him up as he forms the Mercury theater and the longest running Broadway version of Caesar.

I was initially turned off by this film simply because it starred Zac Efron and an unknown Christian McKay who is portraying Welles. After watching the trailer I figured I would set aside all of my negativity towards Mr High School Musical and go in with an open mind… not to mention I used to have a mad crush on Claire Danes. I came out with a huge smile on my face and a feeling of disappointment »
