For the first time in the show’s 40 year history, The Price Is Right has selected a male model to appear on the show.

Watch: Jennifer Lopez Gets Back To Acting In ‘Parker’

Oh yeah, Jason Statham Is In the Movie, Too
"People took something from me"

It’s been a very long time since Jennifer Lopez reigned supreme in movie theaters. Once upon a time, you couldn’t go a few months without seeing J. Lo featured in a romantic comedy of EVERY sort at your local cineplex. From Maid in Manhattan to The Wedding Planner, Out of Sight to Monster-In-Law … to thrillers like Enough and the biopic Selena, Jennifer was a movie house darling. It’s been a while since J. Lo has been seen as a movie star (and no, her appearance in What to Expect When You’re Expecting earlier this year did nothing to remind folks she is an actress) so it is will great pleasure that I share with you the trailer for the action film Parker which stars, you guessed it, Jennifer Lopez (oh, and Jason Statham, too). I’m a sucker for these kinds of popcorn movies and as you can see in the trailer above, J. Lo‘s role isn’t all that challenging. Still, Jenny has managed to reboot her music career successfully and it looks like she wants to do the same for her acting career. As a fan, I hope she’s successful. I’d see this movie in theaters, would you?

Nicole Kidman Becomes Grace Kelly In ‘Grace Of Monaco’

Pretty, Pretty Princess

Nicole Kidman has been cast in the lead role of Grace Kelly in the upcoming “non-biopic” Grace of Monaco and as you can see in the first promo image released for the film, she definitely looks the part of the actress-turned-princess. As you may recall, we’ve previously seen photos of Naomi Watts in character as Princess Diana in a biopic of her own (photos that I, personally, think are remarkable) but this new promo photo of Nicole as Grace is so beautifully elegant, it’s hard not to see her as princess in her own right. Check out the full-size image below and learn more about Grace of Monaco. More »

Sympathy for the Devil

Daniel Radcliffe, of Harry Potter fame, returns to the genre of supernatural films in his forthcoming new movie Horns (which is based on the novel by the same name written by Stephen King‘s son Joe Hill) and in a new promo photo released from the film set, DanRad shows off just how horny he gets for the role. Horns tells the tale of a young man who inexplicably begins to sprout actual horns from his head and as you can see below, it’s an interesting look for the film’s star Daniel Radcliffe. See the full size image below and learn more about this new supernatural thriller. More »

Seth MacFarlane Will Host The 2013 Academy Awards

HMMMMM

A couple of weeks ago we watched comedian/writer Seth MacFarlane host the 38th season premiere of Saturday Night Live and today we learn that he will be hosting the 85th Academy Awards next February. Clearly someone at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences was impressed with what they saw on SNL earlier this month (or maybe they just really loved the movie Ted) because MacFarlane‘s casting seems to have come from out of the blue (ie. he’s not a name we usually hear when discussions about who will host the Oscars begin). Click below to learn all the reported deets of Seth‘s latest and greatest hosting gig. More »

A Lot Of People Are Mad
2012 MTV Video Music Awards

Lifetime channel and the History channel are teaming up to take over the world. Or, at least they’re teaming up to widen their demographics. The two A&E Networks are coming together to produce a Bonnie & Clyde miniseries and they want Miley Cyrus on board. Not everyone seems thrilled about the former Disney star taking on the role of original ride-or-die chick Bonnie, but it looks like it’s happening either way! Click inside to learn more.

Sadly, Johnny Depp Will Not Be Starring In The New Wes Anderson Movie

But Angela Lansbury's Still In!
2012 Toronto International Film Festival - 'West of Memphis' Photocall

Bummer news, guys. A little while back we heard reports about The Grand Budapest Hotel, a new Wes Anderson movie that would star Johnny Depp. I thought all (or at least one) of my dreams had come true, but Wes Anderson just did an interview with the Huffington Post denying Johnny Depp‘s involvement. Honestly? It hurts to hear this, ya know? It just hurts. Unfortunate deets inside.

Ryan Gosling Is Not A Frontrunner For The ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Movie

Good News Or Bad News?
Eva Mendes And Ryan Gosling Attend Premiere

Okay y’all. A while back I vowed never to report on Fifty Shades Of Grey again… until I’d read the book. So you know what this means! I finally found some time for the mommy porn to end all mommy porn and based on everything everyone told me about the book (good, bad, and anti-feminist) I was not disappointed. And I’m so excited to talk about the book and the forthcoming movie now that I have an actual foundation, lol. So here’s the deal. Ryan Gosling fans will either be really really happy, or really really sad to hear that the actor is not one of the frontrunners for the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, as was previously reported. Click inside to learn more from author E.L. James who recently denied these rumors in an interview with Ryan Seacrest.

Is The 'Black Swan' Director On Board?
Natalie Portman attending the 2012 New York City Ballet Spring Gala:  A La Francaise at the David Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City

Oscar-winner Natalie Portman has a few exciting film projects in the works, including Knight Of Cups which we heard about a couple of months back. We saw pics of Natalie during filming, frolicking on the beach with co-star Christian Bale and I thought that was kind of awesome. But now we’ve got more non-Christian-related movie news for Natalie. It looks like the actress is being sought after for a new biopic on former first lady and American icon, Jackie Kennedy. Now that’s kind of a big deal. Click inside for more!
