Sting Sings Ringtones With Jimmy Fallon, Records Voicemail Message for Fan

17 October 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Are you ready for some Sting-tones?! Sting stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Thursday, where he took part in Jimmy Fallon's singing ringtone sketch, where he had to recreate the sounds of well-known ringtones. The rocker worked his magic on the digital melodies -- and the late note host commented that Sting's version of one of the tones actually sounded like a Police song. "It does sound like a Police song, my lawyers will be on it," Sting joked. "I could make a fortune.""You could make all your money on Stingtones, that's the best," Fallon added. "I'll give you a cut, don't worry," the singer promised.While we loved hearing his Sting-tones, the best part of the night was when the British crooner -- who is promoting his new musical, "The Last Ship" -- left an outgoing voicemail message for an audience member to the tune of "Message in a Bottle. »

Sting Records 'Message in a Bottle' Parody for 'Tonight Show' Fan's Voicemail

17 October 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Remember back in the mid-Nineties when it was all the rage to record the chorus of No Doubt's "Spiderwebs" as your voicemail greeting? Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show writers gave one lucky cell phone user an even more clever gift on Thursday night's episode, as former Police frontman Sting laid down "Message on My Voicemail," a modified version of the band's classic "Message in a Bottle," direct to the fan's device. (With shades of George Costanza channeling The Greatest American Hero theme on an episode of Seinfeld.)

Sting Reflects on Life at 63, His Own Mortality and a "Possible Third Act"

16 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appered in the Oct. 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.  "I wouldn't normally do this," said Sting, grinning mischievously as he ambled onstage following the curtain call at the Oct. 2 preview performance of his new Broadway musical, The Last Ship. "But it's my birthday, and I always sing on my birthday." To the delight of the audience and cast, he ripped into an outtake from the production, backed by the pit band — a rockabilly-style song titled "Jock the Singing Welder" — doing a rubber-limbed Elvis imitation that reminded everyone who

Broadway Box Office: Nathan Lane and James Earl Jones pack 'em in. Mia Farrow? Not so much

6 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's Only a Play doesn't open until this Thursday, but the backstage comedy revival is already minting money for its producers at Broadway's Schoenfeld Theatre. The star-studded show—featuring Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, and Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint—grossed an impressive $1.25 million for the week ending Oct. 5, according to figures from the Broadway League. That's a remarkable haul for a non-musical—and actually exceeds the potential earnings for the venue (thanks mostly to premium tickets sales and high demand).

The evolution of the TV virus thriller

16 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain comes to the UK, we look back at how TV’s virus thrillers have mutated over the decades…

It was much so simpler when they’d just kill you. Once upon a time, viruses in TV dramas were straightforward slaughterers. The flu of 1975’s Survivors, for instance, cut a swathe through the UK, leaving well-spoken corpses wherever it went. Once infected, you’d cough, start sweating, and then drop dead - unless you numbered amongst the lucky immune, in which case it was time to brush up on your scouting badge survival skills and attempt to make your way in a post-plague world.

Nowadays, TV’s infected aren’t given anything like such an easy time of it. After the coughing, sweating, lurching - and often, dying - stage, more often than not, the virus transforms you. You mutate into something monstrous, one »

The books behind today's TV horror resurgence

14 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Strain to Penny Dreadful, Hannibal and more, we celebrate some of the books behind TV’s golden age of horror…

There has rarely been a better time to be a fan of the horror genre on television with a bumper crop of horror shows currently hitting our screens. Some shows like Supernatural or American Horror Story weave something original out of various different sources such as old folk tales, mythology and horror films. Then there are the others which are rooted in literary fiction, taking their monsters from the page and bringing them vividly to life on screen.

Whether it's a story of serial killers, monsters or things that go bump in the night, we're taking a look at the books that inspired several of today's horror shows...

DreamWorks’ New CEO Michael Wright on Moving from TV to Film

11 September 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transitioning from the TV industry to running a film studio hasn’t fared well for Rich Ross and Gail Berman, whose stints at the top of Disney and Paramount lasted around two years. Can Turner Broadcasting’s Michael Wright do any better at DreamWorks?

The films he inherits include Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s book “The Bfg,” which will hit theaters on July 1, 2016, and a Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks that he also will direct. There’s also “The Light Between Ocean,” which started production this month, an adaptation of “The Ghost in the Shell” that Rupert Saunders will direct and “Las Madres.”

Here’s what Wright tells Variety he’s learned by watching the film industry from the sidelines, and launching hit series like Michael Bay’s “The Last Ship,” “The Closer” spinoff “Major Crimes,” “Legends,” “Rizzoli & Isles” and DreamWorks’ “Falling Skies »
