Echo Kellum might be one of the funniest things about Fox's freshman sitcom Ben and Kate, but before landing the role of Tommy, the actor and comedian had never before auditioned for a TV pilot. We sat down with him recently in LA to talk about landing the gig, where the flame Tommy harbors for Kate might lead this season, and even his passion for Twitter and politics. Ben and Kate airs on Fox tonight at 8:30/7:30 Central.
Whether he's playing a billionaire ladies' man by day or his hooded alter ego by night, Stephen Amell has made freshman series Arrow must-see TV. As sexy playboy Oliver Queen and vigilante Arrow, Amell has our attention, and it's in large part due to his great looks. Need to see evidence? We're happy to oblige: click through for some of Amell's hottest moments as the hero of Starling City.
Chances are that if you were one of the many readers who gobbled up last Summer's bestseller Gone Girl, you're now salivating for any kind of movie news — and we've got some today. David Fincher is in talks to direct Gone Girl, and we have to admit it makes sense; the Oscar-nominated director has helmed other dark, psychologically complex films like Fight Club and Zodiac, not to mention adaptations like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
While we're still dying to find out who will be cast in the movie (and we have a lot of ideas for who could play Nick and Amy), we're pretty excited about the idea of Fincher taking on Gone Girl. We want to hear from you, too, though. Do you think Fincher is a good choice to head up the big-screen version?
It's been quite the presidential week, what with the inauguration and now the trailer for Olympus Has Fallen. However, the latter is a bit more explosive: in the preview, secret service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is tasked with protecting the fictional commander in chief (Aaron Eckhart) until there's a horrible accident he can't prevent. Mike leaves his job for a lower-stakes desk job until the president — and the White House — are taken hostage and Mike is the only man who can rescue the leader of the free world.
If the plot sounds a bit familiar, then you may be thinking of another upcoming 2013 release, White House Down, which has a frighteningly close premise (but with Channing Tatum in a role similar to Butler's). But similarity or none, Olympus Has Fallen looks like a big, fun, flashy action flick — and it even has Morgan Freeman as the Speaker of the House, which is quite formidable indeed. Butler will save the president on screen on March 22, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
It feels like ages ago since Will first proposed to Emma on Glee, and though there have been some bumps in their relationship road, it looks like the engaged couple is finally headed to the altar. We have some pictures of Jayma Mays on set in her gorgeous wedding dress, so sneak a peek way before you see the episode, and muse over how beautiful she looks on her big day (and maybe wonder why she's yelling and running in one of the shots . . . ).
Teresa Palmer is the heroine of Warm Bodies as Julie, one of the few humans still standing after a zombie apocalypse. When she falls for R (Nicholas Hoult), she begins to take a different view of the undead, much to the chagrin of her zombie-hunting father (John Malkovich). I recently sat down with Palmer to discuss how much she loves her "sassy, feisty" character and how she personally relates to Julie. She also shared her excitement about working with Malkovich, saying that she felt like she was in acting school having him on the set. Warm Bodies hits theaters on Feb. 1, but check out the interview now!
