First Look: Ashton Kutcher As Steve Jobs

'Get Inspired'

Back in early April we learned that actor Ashton Kutcher nabbed the coveted role of the late Steve Jobs in a biopic about his life. Today we get our first look at Kutcher as Jobs on the set of the film, tentatively titled Steve Jobs: Get Inspired. As was noted before, Ashton does bear a striking resmeblence to the young Steve Jobs but many people have voiced their concerns that Kutcher may not be the right person to portray the Apple genius. I can’t say I’m convinced either. Nonetheless, the film is now in production … and Ashton is hard at work on the Jobs. More »

We're SO ALMOST There

For the past few days multiple sites have been republishing a report by E! News that claims that Britney Spears finally singed her $15 million dollar deal to judge the upcoming season of The X Factor.

Plans are reportedly in the works for our dear Britney to make an appearance at the Fox Up Fronts event (where the network announces the new & returning shows for next season) in NYC on Monday to officially announce the deal. Folks, we are SO close to the official confirmation but … we’re not there just yet. More »

Marion Cotillard Talks ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, Reveals Her True Identity In The Film

"She's a good guy."

Back in February of last year, we learned officially that actress Marion Cotillard joined the cast of the forthcoming superhero sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. A couple of months later, it was revealed that Cotillard was cast to play a character named Miranda Tate … but it was widely speculated that Miranda Tate is merely a cover for another character — Talia Al Ghul, daughter of Ra’s Al Ghul (the villain featured in Batman Begins). Today we get to hear from Cotillard herself in the pages of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter and learn, once and for all, which character she will be playing in The Dark Knight Rises.

Has Vince Vaughn Fathered 530 Kids Through Sperm Donation?

The Remake Of 'Starbuck'

Okay, that title is a little cheekily misleading, you’ll have to forgive me. Vince Vaughn is not really a father to hundreds of children, he is in negotiations to star in the remake of the 2011 movie Starbuck, which premiered at last year’s Toronto film festival. The French Canadian movie tells the story of a middle aged man who finds out that he has fathered over 530 children through sperm donations. Do you think Vince is a good match for this role? More »

Angelina Out Cameron In

A few weeks ago there was talk of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt starring together in the upcoming Ridley Scott film, The Counselor.

First Look: The First Photos Of Lindsay Lohan On ‘Glee’ Hit The Internets

L. Lo Goes Gleek

Lindsay Lohan filmed her upcoming guest appearance on Glee last month and will actually feature on the show next week but today we get our first look at L. Lo in action on Glee. Unfortunately for Linds, the promo photos released by Fox aren’t all that flattering IMHO. Each of the photos appear to be captured while Lindsay is speaking (or doing something really unflattering with her mouth). Still, this is our first look at Lindsay on Glee so … let’s take a look. Do try and not stare at her oddly protruding lips. More »

Who Has Joined The Cast Of The New Celebrity Dating Show ‘The Choice’?

Dating Game Spoof Becomes Real

Have you heard about the new celebrity dating game show, The Choice? It started out as a bit of a spoof on shows such as The Voice, but ended up having what Fox believes to be a great concept and format. The main idea behind the show is that in each episode four celebs have non-famous prospective dates “pitch” themselves to them. Over the course of three rounds, the contestant pool is narrowed down until each celebrity has chosen their date for the evening. Basically, a non-celeb has the chance of dating a celebrity, and the audience gets yet another exciting reality-game-show series. EW has now released the complete list of celebrity contestants, and who the host is going to be. Wanna know more? I know you want to… More »
