Anne Hathaway's whirlwind Friday in Miami was full of dancing, dining, and even a peck from a parrot. The actress toured the Magic City to premiere her new animated film, Rio 2, which also stars Jamie Foxx and Jesse Eisenberg. The movie tells the story of a family's adventure in the Amazon rain forest, so it's only fitting that Anne's appearances were this colorful. All the premiere excitement comes two weeks after the actress heated up Miami Beach, Fl, where Anne shared sweet kisses with her husband, Adam Shulman. Earlier in the month, Anne broke out in giggles with Jared Leto after he photobombed her at Vanity Fair's Oscars party. Keep reading to see Anne's latest Miami moments! View Slideshow › »

Patrick gets shirtless and says farewell … again, and Aidan displays his enhanced interrogation techniques
Here are five highlights:
Patrick decides to attend the wake of dear old demented dad, and after one of Jimmy’s co-workers (who is the walking definition of “Big Lug”) drones on about what a swell guy Jimmy was, Patrick interrupts, calling Jimmy a rapist, and for good measure hocks a giant loogie on to Jimmy’s picture. Hey, we all mourn in our own way. Unfortunately, Jimmy’s co-lugs aren’t too thrilled with Jimmy’s tribute, and proceed to beat the pulp out of him.
Victoria collects him from the hospital, and it’s obvious that Patrick is a lost man, drowning in his own anger.
Victoria: “You’re going to get yourself killed.”
Patrick: “Well, maybe I should.”
Victoria: “You don’t honestly believe that.”
Patrick: “I »

So far, ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been fairly restrained when it comes to tapping into the goodwill from Marvel's hit theatrical franchises. Cobie Smulders' Maria Hill topped up in the pilot and hasn't been seen since. Samuel L. Jackson appeared in the tag of one episode as Nick Fury, but he hasn't been seen since. A November episode featured a tie-in to "Thor: The Dark World" and I honestly don't remember if the threads introduced in that episode have rippled forward. The latest movie-to-tv crossover occurs on Tuesday's (March 11) episode, as Jaimie Alexander brings Lady Sif to ABC for an episode that also features Lorelei, a seductive Asgardian with a complicated relationship with both Thor and Loki. Lorelei, played by "Magic City" veteran Elena Satine, was introduced at the end of last week's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." using her amorous wiles to charm a ride from the desert towards civilization, »

"Viggo Mortensen's dedication to his craft and to the world of the story he's telling have been an inspiration to me for years. There is a depth to his art that I greatly admire. Any film he's in is a film I want to see. He's one of the greats. Getting to collaborate with him on Captain Fantastic is quite literally the best thing that's happened to me since my wife asked me to marry her. »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael B. Jordan is already set as The Human Torch and hot commodity Miles Teller ("Spectacular Now") may join him as Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic.
Sources tell THR that director Josh Trank is screen-testing several actors for the roles. Emmy Rossum ("Shameless") and Kate Mara ("House of Cards") are vying to play Sue Storm, aka The Invisible Woman, while British actor Christian Cook ("Magic City") tested as Ben Grimm, aka the Thing.
Fox is still looking for a big name to play the main villain, Dr. Doom, and apparently "isn't ruling out switching genders for the role." That should really get "Fantastic Four" fans buzzing! »

Barry Levinson’s upcoming independent comedy Rock the Kasbah has just got a whole lot more interesting. And given that Bill Murray came on board late last year to lead the project, that’s saying something.
Ahead of launching the film’s international sales at the European Film Market in Berlin next month, it’s been announced that Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride, and Shia Labeouf have joined the cast, which also co-stars Bruce Willis alongside Murray.
Story follows a burned-out music manager who goes to Afghanistan on the Uso tour with his last remaining client. When he finds himself abandoned, penniless and without his passport, he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice, whom he sneaks back to Kabul to compete on the popular television show, “The Afghan Star,” Afghanistan’s equivalent of “American Idol.”

There was lots of high drama on the high seas for the premiere of Starz‘s new series Black Sails on Saturday night. Debuting at 9 Pm Et, the Michael Bay-produced Treasure Island prequel pulled in 846,000 viewers, down from the 1.04 million that Da Vinci’s Demons drew for its April 12, 2013, debut on the cable channel but better than the 819,000 who tuned in for 2011’s Torchwood: Miracle Day. While premiering on a Saturday as opposed to a Friday like Demons, Black Sails also did not have the advantage of the series finale of Spartacus: War Of The Damned as a lead-in as Demons did. On the bigger Starz sea, Black Sails did fare better than the launch of miniseries White Queen (457,000 for its preview and 418,000 for its premiere last August 17) as well as the now-cancelled Magic City (295,000) and Boss (659,000). Over all plays on Starz this weekend, Black Sails picked up another »
