After languishing in development for the past two years, Paramount is finally moving forward with its Dora the Explorer adaptation, bringing on writer Nick Stoller to write the script.

Russell Brand Says Marriage to Katy Perry Was 'Very Wonderful,' Wishes Her 'All the Best'

Russell Brand Says Marriage to Katy Perry Was 'Very Wonderful,' Wishes Her 'All the Best'
After previously bashing Katy Perry, Russell Brand has nothing but "lovely" things to say about his ex-wife.

The 42-year-old comedian sat down with Wendy Williams on Thursday to chat about his new book, The Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions, and reflect on his previous marriage to the "Firework" singer.

"She was lovely. She's such a lovely person, I've got nothing but love for her," Brand replied when The Wendy Williams Show host asked him about Perry, and if being famous made their relationship a rollercoaster. "Oh yeah. It's a bit difficult to tell what's going on in such a situation. But it was a very, very wonderful time."

When asked about Perry's newest gig as an American Idol judge and her reportedly $25 million paycheck, Brand expressed that he wished his ex the best.

Russell Brand Set for U.K. Version of Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’

Russell Brand Set for U.K. Version of Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’
The U.K. Comedy Central channel has greenlit a local version of “Roast Battle,” with comedian Russell Brand set to be a judge on the show.

James Corden’s production company Fulwell 73 will make the British version, which will have a six-episode run. Jimmy Carr will host, and fellow comedian Katherine Ryan will join Brand on the judging panel. In contrast to the U.S. series, each installment of the British version will be given an overarching theme.

Carr’s production company, Ideasatron, is co-producing.

Viacom has had success with U.S. formats in the U.K., with “Lip Sync Battle” faring well on its free-to-air network Channel 5. Brand, who starred in the 2010 feature film “Get Him to the Greek,” was an MTV presenter early in his career before getting sacked for his outrageous behavior.

The 7 Best Music Videos Nominated for the 2017 MTV VMAs, From Kendrick Lamar to Katy Perry

The 7 Best Music Videos Nominated for the 2017 MTV VMAs, From Kendrick Lamar to Katy Perry
Once upon a time, back in the network’s golden years, MTV would assemble all the stars in the top-40 galaxy for an annual celebration of the very best in music videos. They called it the Video Music Awards — the VMAs, for short. They still do, believe it or not, but the VMAs have come to serve a very different purpose in an age when MTV and C-span air roughly the same number of music videos.

These days, it would be fair to say that the VMAs exist less to celebrate music videos than they do to celebrate MTV itself, to reaffirm the network’s place in the zeitgeist. As a pop spectacle, the VMAs are right up there with the Super Bowl halftime concert. As an awards show, they’re a complete farce (to this day, nobody actually knows how the nominees are selected, and few people even bother

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie review

Captain Underpants is the family movie of the summer. Here's our review...

Unless you have fond memories of Dav Pilkey's series of books, it's entirely possible that Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie has tra-la-laaa'd its way into cinemas under your radar. Hopefully, you'll seek it out, because this is the funniest and most creative film to come out of DreamWorks Animation in a long time.

The imaginations fuelling the story are fourth-grade children George and Harold (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch), who break up the monotony of their life at the unusually austere Jerome Horwitz Elementary School by drawing comics, playing pranks and generally trying to make each other laugh.

Their principal, Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms) hates them for it and on the brink of banishing them to separate classes, an unexpectedly powerful cereal box gift enables the boys to hypnotise him. He comes to believe

6 Roles Elisabeth Moss Made Her Own Before Playing Offred in The Handmaid's Tale

Image Source: Hulu If you're not already obsessed with Hulu's adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale, stop reading this, go park yourself in front of a TV immediately, and binge the entire first season. Done? Ok, back to this. Part of what makes the horrifyingly realistic drama - which is based on Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian feminist novel of the same name - so addicting is Elisabeth Moss's captivating, heartbreaking performance as the main character. Offred is a woman who's been stripped of her identity and forced into sexual slavery by the far-right-wing religious fanatics who overthrew the Us government, but she's far from the first complicated, complex female character Moss has taken on. Moss had women everywhere cheering for years while playing Margaret "Peggy" Olson on Mad Men between 2007 and 2015. Peggy works her way up the ladder in the male-dominated world of advertising, going from Don Draper's mousy secretary

Rock Dog Review

Author: Stefan Pape

Blending the coming-of-age formula with a musical journey makes for a fitting collaboration. During those formative years, when we as teenagers attempt to discover exactly who we are and how we fit into this world, our own quest is often enriched, and illustrated by a soundtrack, as our change in mentality and outlook is matched by our musical choices, constantly discovering new sounds, bands and artists that change our own perception of the world we inhabit. Then there’s the social element, epitomised in Almost Famous – in how this art-form brings us together with other likeminded individuals – and this is what lays down the foundations for Ash Brannon’s animation Rock Dog to thrive off, steeped in relatable themes. Only difference is, our protagonist is a dog.

Russell Brand Says He Still Has 'Very Warm' Feelings Towards Ex-Wife Katy Perry
Russell Brand wishes no ill will upon his ex-wife, Katy Perry.

In 2010, Brand married Perry in India, only to call it quits 14 months later. During a recent appearance on John Bishop: In Conversation With, the 41-year-old comedian said he "still feels very warm towards" his ex.

"I feel like, when I hear about her or see her, ‘Awe, there’s that person,'" he noted. "'There’s that person in the world.'"

Brand added that a lot of the problems in his marriage were due to his and Perry's demanding schedules. “The marriage didn’t last for a very long time and I think that is to do with the undulated nature of fame and that, living in those conditions and what was happening,” he said.
