After being nominated by her friend Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox finally took part in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, and she got a celebrity friend to help out. Ed Sheeran, who introduced Courteney to her fiancé, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, was on hand to dump the first (yes, first) bucket of ice water on the Cougar Town star. The actress made sure to keep the celebrity nominations coming, this time challenging Johnny, his bandmate Gary Lightbody, and Isla Fisher. Watch Courteney's challenge below, and be sure to check out all the celebrity Als Ice Bucket Challenges so far. »
Courteney Cox brought her impressive bikini body to Cabo on Saturday when she soaked up the sunshine south of the border with her fiancé, Johnny McDaid. The pair's romantic escape to Las Ventanas resort comes just two months after they confirmed that Johnny had popped the question to the 50-year-old Friends star. However, the trip wasn't just about romance, as Courteney was actually in Mexico for a special trip with her Cougar Town castmates. Courteney's costar Busy Philipps shared a snap from the cast's trip, writing, "This was the perfect vacation to kick off filming our final season!" Since Courteney was busy on vacation, she may have missed out on the fact that she was nominated to take part in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge by her close friend Jennifer Aniston. While you wait for her to accept the chilly charity dare, take a look at all the other »

A review of tonight's "The Bridge" coming up just as soon as I plan a trip to see the fjords... "The system... does not work." -Gary I'll admit to feeling puzzled at times this season that the show didn't feel appreciably better despite dumping the serial killer mastermind nonsense. But the plots have really started to intersect in fascinating ways the last two weeks, and we're starting to get enormous payoff to all the patient storytelling done in the season's first half. "Lamia" — easily the season's best episode to date, and one of the best hours of "The Bridge" so far — was a reminder not only of the power of that patient storytelling, but of the many strange and seemingly incompatible tones this show can feature in the same hour when all the elements are in balance with one another. It's an episode that can open with a darkly comic »

Malek Akkad has spent decades involved with the Halloween franchise (his father, Moustapha helped bring audiences the original and their sequels until his untimely passing in 2005) and while he still has a hand in that series, Malek is set to bring horror fans his directorial debut with Free Fall, a film that aims to make people scared of elevators (its press release mentioned wanting to do to elevators what Psycho did to showers). Dealing with a woman finding out some corporate secrets and having to escape a killer assigned to kill her, Free Fall is set to be released this fall, when Anchor Bay releases the film to Bluray/DVD on October 28th, just in time for well,…Halloween.

During the Cougar Town actress' trip to Ireland with Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, Cox got the chance to bond with her fiancé's mom, Pauline McDaid.

First, a reminder: You are not Zooey Deschanel. There are things Zooey Deschanel can get away with doing that you will never be able to get away with. One of those things is playing New Girl’s fictional drinking game, True American.
True American is perhaps the pinnacle of absurd in-sitcom group games. That’s an area with surprisingly stiff competition—from Friends’ apartment bet to Cougar Town’s Penny Can to Parks and Recreation’s Cones of Dunshire. But New Girl has managed to win out, mostly because it’s returned to the game in no less than three different episodes, »

Sunday night’s episode of Masters of Sex, titled “Fight,” was one of the series’ best. It stuck the show’s two main characters, Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and his assistant/lover Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), in a single hotel room and then let them batter out their anxieties and anger through flirtation, role play, and sex, all while an actual boxing match rages on TV.
In TV parlance, episodes like “Fight,” where characters are restricted to a few sets, are often called “bottle episodes”—they’re cheaper to make (you don’t have to build new sets or »

Courteney Cox and fiancé Johnny McDaid are celebrating more than their summer engagement. The newlyweds-to-be took their romance to the Snow Patrol rocker's Ireland hometown to celebrate his birthday last week. Derry locals spotted the couple, accompanied by Cox's 10-year-old daughter Coco, shopping and hitting the beach, fueling rumors they may be on the prowl for a wedding venue nearby. One possibility: Castle Leslie, a 19th century landmark where Paul McCartney married Heather Mills in 2002. Speculative wedding planning aside, locals were abuzz with their star sightings. "I couldn't believe it was them," Erin Kearney, shop assistant at the local D. »

Community has become one of the icons of pop culture skewering in the modern age. Ask anyone online, not in person of course, about the phrase Six Seasons And A Movie and they can place it at the NBC sitcom’s feet, and the vocal fans that used it as an online mantra to see the show reach the goals jokingly mentioned in a season 2 clip show episode with regards to a one season show called The Cape that once aired on the network.
Such is the way that Community integrates itself in the nerdiest areas of the internet, and takes pot-shots at other elements in the zeitgeist, turning them into something entirely brilliant within the show and making one find it hard to watch any attempts at a trope or genre straight ever again. Such examples of Community at its best pop-culture and film/tv skewering are:

Yahoo could be looking to bring another recently canceled comedy back to life. Variety has confirmed that Fox’s military comedy “Enlisted” is in talks for a second season on the free, ad-supported Yahoo Screen, though no timeline has been set.
The news comes just a couple of weeks after the announcement that the canceled NBC comedy “Community” would find a second life on the digital platform with a sixth season.
Much like “Community” and other shows that have found new lives on different networks, “Enlisted” grew a passionate, albeit small following during its one-season run. The series’ final episode drew 905,000 viewers, according to Nielsen data.
Following three brothers (played by Geoff Stults, Chris Lowell and Parker Young) and a group of misfits on a small army base, the show suffered from a weak push by the network and was ultimately pulled from the schedule early, despite the promise of a 13-episode commitment. »

It’s sad to think most people only know Zach Braff as Dr. John Dorian, Sacred Heart Hospital’s day-dreamiest physician, because there’s a brilliant filmmaker that most mainstream audiences aren’t aware of caged inside the goofy comic. Braff’s brilliant directorial debut, Garden State, showcases emotionality and raw, tender observations that one wouldn’t expect from the previously pigeonholed actor – but that premiered 10 years ago. Since Scrubs, we haven’t heard much from Braff besides Oz The Great And Powerful and a short stint as Pizza Guy on Cougar Town, but thankfully Wish I Was Here changes all of that. While the proven actor certainly knows how to entertain a crowd, Braff’s best work comes from behind the camera, and while Wish I Was Here can’t quite capture the honest majesty of Garden State, the actor/director’s swan song for a tireless generation is a sweet, »

Love looks good on Courteney Cox - and so does 50. After celebrating her milestone birthday June 15 in a teeny-tiny black bikini during a beach getaway, the Cougar Town actress had another big reason to celebrate: her engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. "Her friends couldn't be more thrilled for her," Michelle Lovitt, Cox's personal trainer and friend, tells People in this week's issue. "We're all over the moon that she found this love with Johnny." McDaid, a Northern Ireland native, "is soft-spoken and calm," says a source who has spent time with them. "Their relationship is really mellow." And »
