Michelle Pfeiffer has joined the cast of "Wizard of Lies," HBO's upcoming movie about the Bernie Madoff scandal. She'll be playing Ruth Madoff, wife to Robert De Niro's Bernie, and mother to Alessandra Nivola's Mark, in a film directed by Barry Levinson. This is the fourth film to feature both Pfeiffer and De Niro, though only the second in which they'll have any kind of meaningful interaction. They were largely in separate parts of "Stardust" and "New Year's Eve," though they played husband and wife in 2013's "The Family." It will also be Pfeiffer's first TV role since an uncredited cameo in an episode of husband David E. Kelley's "Picket Fences." »

Johnny Rotten grabs the microphone and lurches forward, his pimply face grinning into the camera. Next to him, Steve Jones is miming (or mocking) guitar-hero moves, while Sid Vicious hunches over his bass, surly as ever. The grainy footage carbon-dates to the tail end of 1977, right before the band was about to embark on their notorious U.S. tour and then implode. It's Christmas Day in the Northern city of Huddersfield, and will turn out to be the penultimate U.K. performance for the seminal punk band. They launch into »

Jared Padalecki made an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego last weekend, where he cracked hilarious jokes and showed his love for Jensen Ackles. One of the sweetest parts of the event, though, came after the fact, when Jared wrote a Facebook post about his humbling experience with his fans. It all ties into his "Just Keep Fighting" campaign and his personal battle with depression, which he opened up about after taking a much-needed break from the spotlight. To honor Jared's efforts to inspire those who are struggling, we collected a small sample of his most inspirational quotes. "When life beats you down, Never give up." "On New Year's Eve, my dear friend lost his battle with depression . . . Though he wasn't the first friend I've lost to suicide, I sure hope he's the last. I wish I had the chance to go back and tell them what they meant to me. »
If you woke up this morning thinking, I'd like to read a powerful piece of journalism and then feel nauseated for the rest of the day, here you go: In a new Huffington Post longform, former Runaways bassist Jackie Fox (née Jackie Fuchs) reveals that the band's producer, Kim Fowley, drugged and raped her in front of a large group that included band members Joan Jett and Cherie Currie 40 years ago. Fuchs, who was 16 at the time, says she had only recently joined the band when Fowley raped her on New Year's Eve 1975, following a performance in Orange County. After the show, Fuchs says that Fowley, who'd specifically sought out a group of teenage girls to form the Runways, brought the band to a motel to celebrate. As others in attendance told HuffPost's Jason Cherkis, Fuchs was given quaaludes at the party before Fowley's sexual assault. Cherkis »

Garry Marshall's latest ensemble comedy will remain in the same vein as the previous two films by intertwining holiday-themed vignettes.
Julia Roberts will stop at nothing to catch her daughter's killer in Secret in Their Eyes trailer
This time around, the plot will revolve around the stories of mums of various ages as Mother's Day nears, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Roberts has apparently already reached a deal to reunite with her Pretty Woman director Marshall on this latest project.
No release date for the project has been announced yet.
Watch the New Year's Eve trailer below: »
It seems that Garry Marshall is ready to continue what's probably best described at this point as his "Holiday Trilogy." It began in 2010 with the star-studded ensemble comedy Valentine's Day; continued with 2011's star-studded ensemble comedy New Year's Eve; and now we have word about Mother's Day - a brand new star-studded ensemble comedy that has already begun putting pieces of its cast together. So who are the folks that will be populating this brand new project? Deadline has released the info about the project, and you can find our rundown on the cast so far below: First up we have Julia Roberts, who is not only a veteran star of Garry Marshall movies, but even had an earlier role in the Holiday Trilogy. The actress and director previously found huge success together working on both 1990's Pretty Woman, and 1999's Runaway Bride (both co-starring Richard Gere), and they most »
Do you remember back when Garry Marshall directing a movie meant it had the chance of being a decent romantic comedy rather than a holiday-themed ensemble debacle? Yeah, me either. After the painfully bad Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve, we now can look forward to Mother's Day. The first cast-members have been announced and they include Julia Roberts, Jennifer... Read More »

As if ruining Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve wasn't enough, director Garry Marshall has set his sights on taking down another holiday with a star-studded movie featuring insipid, loosely-connected stories.
Deadline reports Marshall is helming "Mother's Day," with Julia Roberts on board to star. Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to join her. The film will tell "intertwining stories about the lives of several mothers as the title holiday approaches." Ugh. What did mothers ever do to you, Garry?
If you recall, Marshall has wreaked this havoc before with "Valentine's Day," which also starred Roberts (as well as Bradley Cooper and Taylor Swift), and "New Year's Eve" with Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Zac Efron. The former has an 18 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes; the latter has 7 percent.
