British actor Dominic Cooper, probably best known for his as Howard Stark in the Marvel Universe and Agent Carter, is now using his smoldering good looks to great effect in the new AMC series Preacher. Based on the Vertigo (offshoot of DC) comic-book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the series follows Jesse Custer (Cooper), a supposed man of faith who has a certain set of supernatural skills after being possessed by a devil/angel hybrid (that’s something you don’t hear about a lot). Custer is also searching for God – yes, THE God – and when the show begins, he has settled into a small Texas town, dealing with the locals. Custer is eventually aided in his quest by an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joe Gilgun) and Custer’s ex-GF, the gun-totin’ Tulip O’Hare (Agents of Shield‘s Ruth Negga). Oh, and the series is created by Seth Rogen and his longtime writing partner Evan Goldberg, along with Breaking Bad writer Sam Catlin. This is gonna be good. Preacher is set to premiere in mid-2016.
This is the kind of musical I can get behind. NBC released a preview of their upcoming 3-hour LIVE holiday event of The Wiz and it looks like lots of fun! It stars Elijah Kelley (The Butler) as the Scarecrow, hip-hop star Ne-Yo as the Tin Man, veteran David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion and newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy. There’s also Mary J. Blige as Evillene (or the Wicked Witch of the West), Queen Latifah as the Wiz, Common as the Bouncer, and Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba as Glinda the Good. Watch above! The Wiz Live! premieres Dec. 3. Now I can’t get the song out of my head… “Don’t you carry nothing that might be a load, come on, ease on down, ease on down the road…”

These poor kids LOL!
It’s that time of the year again: Jimmy Kimmel’s YouTube challenge, “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy,” and this year’s is even better than the last! In his annual prank, the late night host tells parents to pretend that they ate all their candy while the kids were sleeping. The parents then send in the videos, and we all laugh while these poor children cry their eyes out (hilariously cruel, we know). While some kids screamed in horror, others knew Jimmy had something to do with it. Watch above to see all the best reactions. We promise that if you laugh, it does not make you a bad person!
With Halloween officially over, it’s time to gear up for the holidays! It’s November, so what better way to get excited about Christmas than to check out ABC’s “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” list! That’s right, we aren’t the only ones who are super excited about the most magical time of year. ABC Family’s holiday-themed marathon kicks off on Dec. 1 and goes until Christmas Day (of course), and this year’s movies are just perfect. More »

In only a sports bra, Lena breaks it down on the dance floor — until her mom gets a little too close to her. Watch the clip above to get pumped up for the season premiere which airs February 21!

Leah Remini: star of King of Queens, friend of J.Lo., sass queen, former Scientologist and author of a new book called Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. Oh boy I can’t wait to get my hands on this. Ever since watching Going Clear months back I’ve been dying to hear what other celebs have to say about the religion.
What I do know from her 20/20 interview, however, is that Scientologists invited her to the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes wedding and tried to separate her from her friend J. Lp (who they asked her to bring). “They were trying to extract me,” she said. “I can only assume because they wanted to make Jennifer a Scientologist. Maybe I was barring that road for them,” she said. More »
Boy George sort of stepped in it when he blurted out on live TV that he “slept with Prince.” According to Daily Mail, while sitting on the judges’ panel for the U.K. version of The Voice, George, who replaced judge Tom Jones, got into a one-upping competition with fellow judges Will.i.am., Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson during recent blind auditions.

So much Adele awesomeness today. The first of it is coming to us from James Corden and Billy Eichner, who joined forces on The Late Late Show for the only parody of Adele’s “Hello” worth listening to: a Star Wars/Halloween mashup affectionally called “A Lonely Halloween”. In it we learn that James and Billy used to dress up as Chewbacca and Han Solo to go trick-or-treating, but now, well, I’ll let the lyrics tell you what’s happened between them. More »
That’s right. Already the actress has done more than most of us can hope to in a lifetime, and it’s hard not to be in awe of everything she’s doing right now. Rowan Blanchard, star of Girl Meets World as daughter to Cory and Topanga of Boy Meets World, has not only penned an essay about intersectional feminism, but she’s also spoken at the U.N. Women’s annual conference, and partnered with Instagram’s #MyStory initiative, giving us all some hope for the next generation. More »
