Strictly Come Dancing: BBC One, 9pm

Join Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman for the first of the live shows this weekend in which six of the 15 couples take to the floor.

Hoorah! The Graham Norton show is back to fill our Friday evenings with post-pub fun as it returns tonight (September 26)

Doctor Who's Peter Capaldi, Denzel Washington, Gemma Arterton and George Ezra will be cramming together on Norton's crimson couch for the first episode, which marks the show's impressive 16th series.

So in anticipation, we select a few of our favourite titbits from the show's last two series - from the infectious sound of Bill Murray's laughter to Will Smith's Fresh Prince nostalgia overload - below:

1. Samuel L Jackson

Smooth operator Samuel L Jackson got even smoother when he recited his famous Ezekiel speech from Pulp Fiction with ease 20 years on. The Hollywood actor was asked by Norton if he remembered the famous monologue, to which he replied a confident: "Yeah!" Cue the camera panning in for a close-up, the dramatic background music rising up and Jackson's flawless »

Europes dramatic comeback at Medinah two years ago will take some beating.

Denzel Washington On ‘The Equalizer 2′

25 September 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The really rather superb The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington, is out in cinemas tomorrow (review here), and whilst not giving away too much about how it ends up, the film does set itself up quite nicely for a potential sequel.

Washington appears on The Graham Norton Show this week, where the said that a sequel is possible, but it’s up to us if we want it.

Here’s what he said.

“We’ve got to get this one out first. They’ve talked about it, but it’s up to the people, they decide. The last part of movie is always the audience.”

So, if we go see it and make some cash for Sony, a sequel could be on the cards, which is interesting as we can’t see that Denzel has ever made a sequel of any kind during his long career.

Anyway, whatever they do, you »

Downton Abbey Alum Dan Stevens Wows Fans With Buff New Body in The Guest Trailer

10 July 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well hey there, Dan Stevens… The star of the upcoming flick The Guest sure looks a lot different from his days on Downton Abbey. In the movie trailer, Stevens shows off his incredibly tanned and buff bod as well as his dangerous side—a far, far cry from his conservative attire and demeanor in the hit PBS series. And while the actor has been forthcoming about getting into the shape of his life for the role, we haven't seen the results of all his hard work in the gym until now. Last year, the Brit joked about his weight loss transformation during a guest appearance on The Graham Norton Show. "I've lost about 30 pounds since New Year, which, in British terms, is about »

News

Arrow has cast a new Count Vertigo. TVGuide reports that Peter Stormare has been cast as Werner Zytle, who takes over the Count Vertigo name.

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the idea of Lifetime’s The Lottery. At least, I’ve been trying to imagine how a drama about a dark future for humanity would work on Lifetime. Here’s the first trailer for the series:

This season, the winner of So You Think You Can Dance will win a role on the Broadway revival of On the Town — provided the show is running when there’s an opening in the cast.

Fringe alum Georgina Haig has been picked to play Elsa in Once Upon a Time‘s Frozen Storyline.

Morning After observes that seeing Tori Spelling‘s Mystery Girls so soon after her raw reality show True Tori finished makes her the real life version of The Combeback. »

Transformers 4, Mrs Brown's Boys, and criticising fans

1 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The success of Transformers 4 and Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie is having an unpleasant side effect...

Feature

This weekend just gone saw two critically-reviled movies top the box office charts of the Us and the UK. In America, Michael Bay's fourth and longest Transformers movie, Transformers: Age Of Extinction, hit the number one spot, eating up around $100m of business in its opening weekend. And that's just in America. The film has hit $300m worldwide, and it lands in British cinemas this weekend.

It might find unexpected competition, however. For over the weekend here in Blighty, Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie, a far more economical enterprise than Mr Bay's latest opus, helped itself to a staggering £4.3m in its first weekend. It crushed The Fault In Our Stars, the previous number one, and outperformed any number of blockbuster films in their opening weekend. Mrs Brown's Boys is a genuine movie smash hit. »
