‘Dancing with the Stars’: Who is your favorite male athlete winner? [Poll]

‘Dancing with the Stars’: Who is your favorite male athlete winner? [Poll]
While female Olympians have struck Mirrorball glory on “Dancing with the Stars,” it’s a different story for the dudes. The most successful male athletes on the show are football players. Shocking, right? (Not.) Of the 10 athletes that have won “Dancing” in its first 25 seasons, six were men and four of those men were pigskin players. So you can probably book a football player or two for the upcoming “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes.” But which of these six champs has your vote?

The first male athlete to win “Dancing” was Dallas Cowboys great Emmitt Smith, who won Season 3 in 2006 with Cheryl Burke over Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff, who outscored Smith and Burke during the season. Smith and Burke reteamed for the all-star season and finished fourth.

Smith was the beginning of four straight athlete champs, with Kristi Yamaguchi being the fourth. Short track speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno,

The other cash-rich actor’s deal of 1989

Simon Brew Feb 6, 2018

Jack Nicholson's Batman deal made him over £50m for one film role. But Bruce Willis didn't do badly out of Look Who's Talking, either...

No actor in the 1980s managed to bag as good a deal for a single movie role as Jack Nicholson. In agreeing to sign up to play The Joker in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie Batman, he cut his up front fee from $10m to $6m. In exchange for the $4m price cut, Nicholson took a cut of the film’s earnings, its merchandise sales, and earnings from future sequels. Even though he wasn’t on screen for a second after the first Batman film, he continued to take a cut from the likes of Batman Returns and Batman Forever too.

I’d assume that Nicholson’s earning from the deal was brought to an end before Christopher Nolan rebooted Batman with Batman Begins (and,

2019 Emmys comedy queens showdown: Julia Louis-Dreyfus (‘Veep’) vs. Candice Bergen (‘Murphy Brown’)?
The 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards aren’t even here yet, but you have every reason to be pumped for the 2019 ceremony because it could feature a battle royale between our two Emmy queens: Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Candice Bergen.

Days after Matt Walsh confirmed that “Veep”’s seventh and final season won’t air until 2019 to accommodate Louis-Dreyfus’ breast cancer treatment, CBS announced Wednesday that Bergen will return for a 13-episode “Murphy Brown” revival next season. That means next year’s Best Comedy Actress race could pit five-time champ Bergen against seven-time champ — and six-time reigning champ — Louis-Dreyfus.

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award
Amy Adams can rise to any challenge: sparkle as a princess, brawl like a Boston barmaid, dance with Muppets, kiss Superman, earn five Oscar nominations and hold her own against Meryl Streep — twice. Still, on Nov. 10, the deeply private, craft-driven actress will face a new test when Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart, Chris Messina and Denis Villeneuve take the stage of the Beverly Hilton Hotel to praise her talents as the 31st recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.

Being lauded for her entire body of work is “a little overwhelming,” says Adams. “I tend to look at things piece by piece.”

As for the prospect of watching a montage of her entire filmography, Adams falls silent. “Yup,” she eventually says with the well-mannered equanimity of an actress who spent years doing dinner theater in Minnesota. Then she giggle-exhales.

Harvey Fierstein Sets the Record Straight (For Once): ‘I Ain’t Weinstein’

Harvey Fierstein Sets the Record Straight (For Once): ‘I Ain’t Weinstein’
Iconic gay playwright, actor, and producer Harvey Fierstein would like to get one thing straight (for the first time in his life): He is not Harvey Weinstein. Despite having the same first name and very similar last names, the raspy-voiced comedian is none too happy about being mistaken for the Hollywood heavyweight, especially following a slew of allegations about Weinstein’s decades long history of sexual assault.

Fierstein has been tweeting up some hilarious missives in his attempt to right the ship. “Harvey Weinstein is rumored to be in trouble & I am somehow getting flak as well! I get it. All Harveys look alike,” he wrote. “Guys, we’re mad at Harvey Weinstein, not Harvey Fierstein!” A few days later, he added: “Thanks to Weinstein’s horrible behavior I’ve been dubbed #theGoodHarvey on the internet. I appreciate the distinction [but can’t] I be #TheFabHarvey?”
