First Look: Henry Cavill Emerges As Clark Kent On The Set Of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’

Surprise! He looks exactly like Henry Cavill but in a suit

Back in May when we got our first look at Ben Affleck in costume as Batman as he will appear in the upcoming movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Interwebs exploded with a flurry of excited discussion. Today we get our first look at actor Henry Cavill in costume on the set of Dawn of Justice but I don’t expect this photo to cause much discussion at all. As you can see below, Henry is in costume as Superman‘s secret identity Clark Kent … so he basically looks like Henry Cavill in a suit. But still … Clark Kent, everybody! More »

Zendaya DROPS OUT Of The Aaliyah Biopic

Damn, that was fast!

And just like that, Zendaya Coleman and the Lifetime made-for-TV Aaliyah biopic are DUNZO! A lot of people were against it from the beginning, including Aaliyah‘s own family. We learned a little while back that they had plans to get involved and to stop the production altogether. I don’t know if they’ll succeed in that endeavor, but this is certainly a huge blow to the production. A source has spoken out on Zendaya‘s behalf and E! is now reporting that she has decided to drop out. Click inside for more.

Watch: Ian McKellen Stars In A New PBS Sitcom That Focuses On A Gay Couple In Their 70s

The Golden Guys

Ian McKellen has made a name for himself on the stage and in film and tonight, he will make a name for himself on TV when his British series Vicious premieres on PBS. Vicious is a bit of a revolutionary series in that it focuses on a gay couple in their 70s. To be honest, the fact that the leads are gay isn’t even the revolutionary party … the fact that the characters are in their 70s is the remarkable thing to consider here. Click below to learn more about this new TV series and watch the trailer for Vicious. More »

Jenny McCarthy & Sherri Shepard Have Reportedly Been FIRED From ‘The View’

Cleaning House

Remember last September when Jenny McCarthy joined the cast of The View as the newest co-host of the show? Well, according to a new report, she has been fired from the show … along with longtime co-host Sherri Shepard. Barbara Walters already retired from the show, leaving only Whoopi Goldberg left on the show. I don’t watch the show nor do I pay much attention so I’m not sure if Jenny has been a bad co-host all season long but I know for a fact that Sherri Shepard confessed on air that she wasn’t sure if the earth was round — or flat — so … her ignorant ass should’ve been fired ages ago, IMHO. Read on for all the known/reported deets about this bloodbath at The View and find out who might be added as replacement co-hosts. More »

Sooooo, I hope you are sitting down right now … cuz if you’re not, you’re gonna need to take a seat — and then fall out of it — when you learn that Lindsay Lohan has been cast to star in the play Speed-The-Plow in London. It has been rumored for a few weeks now that L. Lo would be doing something with the David Mamet play but I never seriously considered that she’d actually appear on stage in the play. But, ’tis true … Lindsay will be making her theatrical stage debut at London’s Playhouse Theatre in September. Ok, you can pick yourself up off the floor now. More »

Zendaya Responds To Aaliyah Biopic Criticism

"​It doesn’t matter what color you are"

Last week we learned that actress/singer Zendaya won the role of Aaliyah in an upcoming Lifetime made-for-TV biopic film about her life, due out this fall. Almost immediately, Zendaya was hit with criticism over the role and the film itself (chief among the most vocal critics is Aaliyah‘s family). Other critics have also, and I can’t even believe this shizz, criticized Zendaya for not being “black enough” to play Aaliyah in this biopic film. Over the weekend, Zendya offered a response to those critics. More »
