As film fans we love nothing more than good celebrity cameos. For instance, comic creator Stan Lee has generated himself an entirely new career based around his appearances in pretty much every Marvel property known to man. He’s not the only famous face to pop-up unexpectedly, this week’s new release Keanu features a crafty appearance from the kitten’s namesake. It’s a genius scene that is sure to become one of our favourites over the coming years. Here are some of our others.

The Ukrainian-born star of Black Swan says she came to the Us on a ‘religious-refugee visa’ and laments that people are allowing themselves to be manipulated
Kunis, who was born in the Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi and emigrated to the Us as a seven-year-old in 1991, made the comments in an interview with Glamour magazine, in which she also described her parents’ decision to start from scratch in Los Angeles. “They came to America with suitcases and a family of seven and $250, and that’s it.”

Mila Kunis is baffled by Donald Trump's outlook on refugees coming to America. The 32-year-old actress, best known for her work in Ted, That '70s Show and as the voice of Meg on Family Guy, recently told Glamour magazine her family came to the U.S. on a religious-refugee visa "and I’m not going to blow this country up." Kunis said she pays taxes and is not taking anything away by being a part of the country. Kunis' family is from Ukraine.

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...
It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...
This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.
Another key player is joining The Royals‘ own game of thrones in Season 3.
Jules Knight (BBC One’s Holby City) will recur on the E! drama — produced by Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions — as Spencer Hoenigsberg, the new Lord Chamberlain to the Queen of England, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Mike Schur is in a good place. Make that “The Good Place.” The prolific producer’s latest effort — a high-concept comedy starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson — last summer earned a straight-to-series pickup from NBC and now has scored a Thursday-night slot at 8:30, as announced during the network’s upfront presentation.
But this time around, he wanted to do something different.
“It’s really intimidating when every idea you have is being done eight times over at eight different networks,” says Schur. “In my case, I had been working on ensemble office comedies pretty much continuously for 10 years.”
That theme is jettisoned with “The Good Place,” in which the only office in sight is the one in which Eleanor (Bell) wakes up to learn that she’s dead. »

Driver’s Midnight Special co-star Michael Shannon was due to feature in the film but due to scheduling conflicts the actor has had to drop out. In addition to Driver, Family Guy and Ted creator/star Seth MacFarlane is also reportedly in talks to join the cast, which already has Channing Tatum (Magic Mike Xxl) and Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) in its ranks.
Soderbergh had previously stated a few years ago that he war retiring from directing films, but the script has seemingly won him over for him to return for the first time since 2013’s Side Effects and Behind The Candelabra. The new film revolves around “brothers who plan a crime during a Nascar race.”

Tonight’s host is Brie Larson: indie film actress, recent Oscar winner, and former singer of pop punk album Finally Out of P.E, whose single She Said featured pretty heavily on the rotation of my first ever square iPod nano. Larson brought a solid enthusiasm to an episode that featured a heavier amount of good sketches than bad, proving that maybe long hiatuses are good for this show, since their cast and crew, if legend is to be believed, subsist on very little sleep and very much junk food. Glad those guys got some rest, and brought some laughs to this enjoyable Mother’s Day episode.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Fox has ordered a new live-action sci-fi comedy-drama series from Family Guy and Ted creator Seth MacFarlane, placing an order for 13 episodes for the 2017-2018 TV season. The show “is set 300 years from now and centers on the explorations and exploits of the Orville, a ‘not-so-top-of-the-line’ ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet that ‘will boldly go where no comedic drama has gone before.'”
“I’ve wanted to do something like this show ever since I was a kid, and the timing finally feels right,” said MacFarlane. “20th Century Fox TV [which is producing the show] and Fox have been good to me for many years, and of course, Dana and Gary [Walden and Newman, Chairmen of Fox Television Group] have been fantastic bosses and true pals, so it was a no-brainer to come to them with the project. I think this is gonna be something special.”
The as-yet-untitled show will mark MacFarlane’s first live-action role in one of his TV series, »

Given that Seth MacFarlane’s CV is split between animated televised successes such as Family Guy and live-action movies like Ted, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Mr MacFarlane is now plotting to jam those skillsets together and make a live-action TV series.
Fox announced back in May that MacFarlane is developing an as-yet-untitled live-action sci-fi show for the network. He's written the scripts, and will executive produce the series as well as starring in it.
Season 1 of the show will consist of 13 hour-long episodes, and will be set 300 years in the future. It’s all about the crew of the Orville, “a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet”.
