Canary was primarily a theater actor before breaking into TV in the ’60s, first as Mia Farrow’s physical therapist in Peyton Place and next as Ponderosa ranch foreman Candy Canaday in Bonanza. In 1978, he kicked off his daytime soap career with a role on Search for Tomorrow. He followed that up with stints on The Doctors and Another World, »

Kerry Washington radiated on the red carpet at Variety and Wwd's Stylemakers event in La on Thursday. The actress posed for photos in a striped crop top, matching skirt, and chevron heels before heading inside. The party, which celebrated costume designers, hairstylists, and makeup artists in Hollywood, also brought out Kourtney Kardashian, Viola Davis, and Katie Holmes, who was accompanied by fashion designer Zac Posen. Kerry's outing came just hours before the Winter finale of Scandal, which is halfway through its fifth season. We also got a glimpse of her in a gorgeous tulle gown at the Baby2Baby Gala last weekend, where she was honored with the giving tree award for her dedication to helping children in need. She also showed her charitable side on The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently, playing the tuba to raise money for one of her favorite causes. Keep reading to see Kerry, Kourtney, Katie, »

Avril Lavigne and Ryan Cabrera's multiple outings together make that much more sense now—they're roommates! People began to speculate that the two musicians were dating after being spotted out and about together in recent weeks, but as we've said before, these two celebs are just longtime friends. However, E! News also learns that aside from their friendship, Lavigne and Cabrera are currently staying under one roof. A source tells us that they live together so obviously they spend time together, adding that they've been friends for 12 years. The insider also shares that Cabrera recently split with his girlfriend Katie Kraus, a digital host at Entertainment Tonight, who he was living with, »
The Sherlock and Spectre actor is next up in the play The Dazzle – and answered your questions about being typecast as a villain, his taste in sandwiches and who he would play in a musical, in a live webchat on Monday 16 November. Read his replies below
Thank you everybody. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to answer all your questions. I'm flying in a taxi now back to rehearsals. Thanks to the expert typist at the Guardian, if it wasn't for them the pyting ward BNe lke diss. xxxxxxx
If you could name a country, what name would you give it?
Would you rather direct a film or a play?
Actually the thing I'm interested in is teaching. Both my parents are teachers of some sort and I think it's really important that young actors »

The nine remaining couples took to the dance floor once again – but who made it through to the biggie in Blackpool next weekend?
So that’s it for another Strictly Week! Thank you once again to Hannah for being an excellent supply teacher, and to everyone who took the time to be brilliant as usual in the comment box.
I’m in the liveblog hotseat right through until the final now (no more skiving off), so I’ll see you next Saturday for a jaunt to Blackpool. Don’t forget your kiss-me-quick hat, and gave a brilliant week! Cheers, Hx.
Which means it’s time to say goodbye to Jeremy. It took me a while to warm to his particular brand of dad-dancing, but you can’t deny he gave every performance his all, and bought plenty of joy to the dance floor. He and Karen »

It’s all rather implausible and hugely melodramatic as it milks ham-fisted histrionics from high soap opera. A pitiable excuse for a movie. I’m “biast” (pro): really like Russell Crowe…
I’m “biast” (con): …though he’s been trying my patience lately
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
In 1989 New York (or, well, Pittsburgh standing in, unconvincingly, for New York), Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jake Davis (Russell Crowe: The Water Diviner, Noah) and his young daughter (Kylie Rogers) stumble through their grief over losing his wife, her mother in a car accident. The crash has left Jake with a combination of manic depression, palsy, and seizures brought on, apparently, by guilt (he was driving and distracted) and brain injury. It’s rather implausible and hugely melodramatic, which is all this pitiable excuse for a movie is concerned with: milking ham-fisted histrionics from high soap opera. »

Bravo has greenlit two more “Real Housewives” spinoffs, announcing “The Real Housewives of Potomac” and “The Real Housewives of Dallas.” Both new cities are set to debut in 2016.
“The Real Housewives of Potomac,” set in the affluent Maryland town, premieres on Sunday, Jan. 17 at 9:00 p.m. Housewives are Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby, all women who have fought for their places in the exclusive suburban society full of country clubs, prep schools, gated mansions and rolling hills by way of legacy or marriage. The diverse cast (pictured above) follows in the footsteps of Bravo’s highest-rated series, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which features all African-American housewives.
Just up the river from the capital, “Potomac” gives Bravo another chance at a show in the Washington, D.C. area, as the cable net launched “The Real Housewives of D.C.” in 2010, which only last one season, »

Put on your dancing shoes and join us – we critiqued the tangos, waltzes and sequins of this week’s instalment of Scd. Who flailed and who foxtrotted their way to next week’s show?
So that’s it for another week! Thank you everyone for joining in. I’m off on my annual jolly to the Strictly studio next Saturday, so I won’t be around for the liveblog. There will be stand-in, however, and I’ll be back on Sunday for the (spoiler-free) results show.
Do follow me on Twitter @heidistephens if you don’t already, I’ll try to post my annual photo of me hugging Aljaz slightly too tightly. Have a brilliant week! Hx
So let’s go through the voting motions. Everybody saves Kellie and Kevin, so it’s time for Carol and Pasha to leave the dancefloor. She’s had a wonderful time, »

Tonight’s final dance is “Ghost Town” by The Specials. Too much fighting on the dance floor.

At a key turning point in Gabriele Muccino’s “Fathers and Daughters,” Russell Crowe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist is sent into a severe tailspin by insensitively harsh reviews for the work he regards as his personal magnum opus, the unpromisingly titled “Bitter Tulips.” One wonders if Italian helmer Muccino is tacitly chiding his own critics in the wake of such English-lingo misfires as “Seven Pounds,” but either way, this waxen slab of glossily packaged soap is unlikely to get them — or mass audiences — back on side. Though its tale of intergenerational psychological crises alternates between parallel, mutually predictable plotlines, set in 1989 and 2014 respectively, the film itself appears to have sprung principally from the former era: In its shape and sheen, “Fathers and Daughters” seems dated even before Michael Bolton surfaces to cough up a gelatinous closing-credits ballad.
Already released in multiple Euro and Asian territories, “Fathers and Daughters” is still seeking a U. »

After trying out the world of Hollywood with his English-language debut Stoker, Park Chan-wook has returned to South Korea for his follow-up. Adapting Sarah Waters‘ novel Fingersmith, the period crime drama was initially set in Victorian London and follows young female thieves (aka fingersmiths), but the Oldboy director switched the location to his native country (as well as Japan).
Today now brings the first image, as well as the reveal of the title The Handmaid, courtesy of Twitch. Above one can see the main cast of Ha Jung-woo, Kim Min-hee, Jo Jin-woong and Kim Tae-ri in their 1930’s garb. Although no release date has been set, we can likely expect a premiere on the festival circuit next year for one of our most-anticipated projects.

Jokers, circus masters and demonic dolls. Which TV characters terrify you? Den Of Geek asked its writers that very question…
The subconscious is a terrible place; dark, mysterious and peopled by spectres from the past. As a bit of a laugh then, we sent our writers journeying into theirs and asked them to drag out any TV terrors they found lurking in the shadows.
Some television fears had been ensconced there since childhood, others were more recent tenants. Some were morally terrifying; human beings with icy hearts capable of atrocities, others were simply… atrocities.
Join us as we count down in order of terror from the sort-of-creepy to the downright terrifying, the 50 TV characters that, for whatever reason, give our writers chills. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, so feel free to fill in gaps by adding your own peculiar television nightmares below…

So that’s another week of Strictly in the bag – next week it’s the Halloween Special, so gird your loins for spooky noises, more-horrible-than-usual VTs and Craig looking very bored with the whole business. At least it’s on actual Halloween, so we only have to tolerate the daftness for one day.
Thank you all for joining in with your comment box brilliance, feel free to swing by Twitter @heidistephens and say hello. Otherwise I’ll see you back here at 6.35pm next Saturday. Have a great week! Hx
Bye bye Ainsley, you were hilarious and brilliant, and Natalie is all kinds of fabulous.
Their final dance is a bit of “You Can Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac. Ainsley is freestyling. »

Katie Holmes pulled double duty in NYC on Thursday night, attending two high-profile events; she showed up at the 2015 Skin Cancer Foundation gala before heading to Fashion Group International's Night of Stars, stunning on both red carpets in a curve-hugging Zac Posen dress. The International Night of Stars event also brought out Justin Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, who cracked up together while posing for photos. The last time we saw Katie, she was joined by her adorable 9-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise. The two had a cute mother-daughter date at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, where they spoke to the crowd on stage and watched performances by Beyoncé, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, and Tori Kelly. Keep reading to see more snaps from Katie's back-to-back Big Apple outings. »

Ahead of its release next month, Warner Bros. has debuted a new poster and trailer for director Gabriele Muccino’s upcoming drama Fathers and Daughters, which stars Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried. Check them out here…
Jake Davis, a Pulitzer-winning novelist, finds himself fighting against the world when a fatal car accident leaves him to raise his 5-year-old daughter, Katie, all on his own.

Meet the Paranormal Activity film that promises to wrap the series up! Here's our review of The Ghost Dimension...
This is a spoiler-free review, which includes plot details from the previous five instalments in the Paranormal Activity series.
Back in 2009, Paramount masterminded a revolutionary marketing campaign for Oren Peli's micro-budget found footage horror movie Paranormal Activity. With endorsements from the likes of Steven Spielberg, it was arguably the most hyped film of its year and certainly the most profitable, returning $193m on a $15,000 budget.
Sequels abounded and the films comfortably usurped the annual Halloween slot occupied by the Saw franchise over the course of the following three sequels. 2013 was supposed to see two Paranormal Activity movies - a “Latin-American oriented” spin-off at the beginning of the year and then a fifth instalment at Halloween as usual, but the cool reception to Paranormal Activity 4 apparently led »
