Last last month we got to see the first video promo for NBC‘s upcoming live musical production Peter Pan Live! scheduled to air this holiday season and today we get to hear actress Allison Williams sing as Peter Pan for the first time in this just released new video promo. As you can also see in the video embedded above, Christopher Walken as Captain Hook is utter perfection … but … the more footage I see from this production, the more I’m convinced it’s not the show for me. I love musical theater … but not all musical theater. In any event, I have a feeling this new production of Peter Pan will do well for NBC. Have a look at the video above and see if it looks like something that YOU will want to watch when it airs on NBC on December 4.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine which is devoted to The Men of the Year. Chris covers the first of 6 covers which feature other Men of 2014 but, really, this year was all about the Pratt. After he made the jump from the small screen (Parks and Recreation) to the big screen in The Hurt Locker in 2009, Hollywood … didn’t really take notice until he landed the lead as Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in this year’s superhero movie hit Guardians of the Galaxy. As you can see in the photos included here, Chris Pratt also makes a pretty damn fine clothing model so … please enjoy.

Back in 1984, a star-studded supergroup called Band Aid gathered together some of the biggest names in music to record and release a charity single titled Do They Know It’s Christmas? to raise money and awareness to fight hunger in Ethiopia (you may recall that an American supergroup of performers called USA for Africa recorded and released We Are The World for the same cause back in ’84 as well). Today, Band Aid 30 — a supergroup comprised of One Direction, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin from Coldplay and more — releases an updated version of Do They Know It’s Christmas? as a charity single to raise money to fight the spread of the ebola virus and care for its victims. It’s pretty remarkable, I think, that 30 years after the original Band Aid came together to fight hunger a new incarnation of Band Aid can come together to fight ebola. I also think it’s remarkable that Bono was a member of Band Aid back in 1984 and he is a member of Band Aid 30 today. You can click HERE to donate, if you are so inclined.

This weekend I became a teenager again, and started ripping photos out of a magazine to hang on my wall—including a couple of Marion Cotillard. This was actually part of a creative task in The Artist’s Way, and it was incredibly fun. It’s been too long since my last Marion Cotillard movie, so I’m insanely excited for Two Days, One Night—especially since I recently got my life changed by the 2011 movie from the same directors, The Kid With A Bike. Cotillard and Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have teamed up to bring a seemingly simple story of a woman who loses her job, transformed into possible Oscar gold. Peep the video for more!
Two Days, One Night will hit limited theatrical release on December 24.
As we all know, Jennifer Lawrence is on a huge press tour for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (which I saw, and really, really enjoyed). She recently gave an interview in which she described the feeling she has in dealing with paparazzi, and she sounds incredibly stressed out (at least when they come around, which is often). But she also made a point to acknowledge the fact that, well, she’s a millionaire and so nobody really cares that she gets “scared” leaving her house. Click inside for more.
I wasn’t ready. I thought I was ready. I specifically said that I couldn’t wait to see her dress, but apparently I was wrong. I could have waited 10 more years to see what Solange wore to her wedding and I still wouldn’t have been ready because OMGeee! If we you were online last night, chances are you’ve already seen these, because Solange’s amazing, fabulous, ridiculous wedding photos (first published by Vogue) damn near broke the internet.

Earlier today I only had eyes for the incredible Gugu Mbatha-Raw, but there were a lot of other ladies who made stunning red carpet appearances this week. The Hollywood Film Awards had everyone buzzing, with Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightley (who had my personal fave look), and more commanding the room. I do love Angelina‘s dress, but I hope she is in good health. Something seemed off in the photos. Meanwhile, a pregnant Duchess Kate Middleton looked lovely in a black, lace dress. Peep the gallery for more!
ALSO, Jenna Dewan-Tatum is NOT playing fair. Not even a little bit.

I know, I know. Shannon has been slacking like a mofo on the comments roundup. Well, they are BACK in full effect, so please forgive my slackage. This weekend I am, once again, swamped and exhausted but we had so many great comments I couldn’t not pull them together. Especially after I spent all that time last night collecting hilarious Twitter reactions to Aaliyah: One in a Million. Click inside for more!
Welp, I did it … another half marathon in the books. Earlier this morning (WAY earlier) I woke up to run the inaugural Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon at Disneyland and I had a really fun time … well, mostly a really fun time. The Santa Ana winds were so intense this morning tho that the race was much more challenging than I was expecting. I probably inhaled about 5 pounds of blowing dirt and I surely got wind debris in all of my exposed orifices but the wind did keep the temps very cool and that helped make the run not hot and miserable so … it all evened out. Guess what … I have photos to share below, if you’re interested ;) More »
