Boston Police Draw Weapons In Watertown
The Boston police continued to push the media back to a safe distance in Watertown, where earlier in the day they gunned down Dzhokhar’s brother/accomplice, Tamerlan.

The blokes who flex their muscles in Ultimate Fighting Championship and mixed martial arts events are mostly a larger-than-life blend of showmanship and brawn – which explains why they’re increasingly being snapped up by Hollywood. With more and more Mma fighters moving into the movies, I thought I’d take a look at some of the biggest names to have made the crossover.
Winner of numerous Mma trophies around the globe, Schiena flexed his acting chops in Locked Down as a framed cop who winds up in jail and is forced into cage fighting by none other than Brit hardman turned thesp Vinnie Jones. Schiena retired from sport after breaking both his ankles (ouch!) but has since found his feet on the big screen working with everyone from Pacino to Van Damme.

At last night's Grammy Awards, the Black Keys performed "Lonely Boy" along with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Dr. John, who received much attention for his batshit-crazytown headdress (seen above). Though it was easy to make fun of the New Orleans–bred musician for looking like an Ewok witch doctor, Dr. John has rocked such finery for as long as he's been Dr. John. Over the decades, as part of his "Night Tripper" persona, he has regularly hit the stage in be-feathered Mardi Gras–esque costumes. Just take a look at the cover art for his 2012 album, Locked Down. (Produced, incidentally, by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys.) We've collected four other pictures for your afternoon amusement: »
