Accidents do happen. And, like with most other things, when it comes to celebrities, it’s either go big or go home. So, obvi, we’re about to get into all of the celebrities who did NOT go home. These 20 celebrity injuries are cringe-worthy enough. More
You know those actors who are really talented but don’t seem to get the recognition or praise they deserve? Maybe they’re usually in supporting roles or starring in smaller independent projects. Maybe they’re not young or conventionally attractive, or their personal lives don’t make the headlines like other more high-profile stars. More
Do you ever watch a sex scene in a movie and wonder what the hell it’s like to film something like that? More
Octavia Spencer won a SAG Award for Best Supporting Actress last night, so you’d think her Google news search results would be flooded with accolades for her acting. Imagine my surprise, then, when the overwhelming majority of headlines focused not on her performance in The Help, but her weight. More
Does this look like the 53-year-old hottie who played Aragorn to you? More
Will playing one of Gossip Girls‘s most hated characters hurt her career? More
This does nothing to dispel the stereotype of French celebrities as rude, chain smoking misanthropes who will pee on carpets that don’t belong to them just because they can. More
Don’t worry, they didn’t fire Gossip Girl hottie Penn Badgley. There are two Jeff Buckleys now. Ain’t showbiz grand? More
You have to admit he walked right into that one. More
Apparently, some guy named David Thorpe wants to travel back in time to the nineties and punch Matthew Lillard circa Hackers in the face. Them’s fightin’ words! More
With all the fervor over Captain America‘s studly star Chris Evans, it would be easy to forget anyone else is in the movie at all. But to do so would be a huge mistake, because the supporting cast includes Dominic Cooper, a great actor (and heartthrob) in his own rite. In this, his Hollywood blockbuster debut, Cooper plays Howard Stark, the brilliant inventor who helps turn regular guy Steve Rogers into a patriotic übermensch. (And who, in Iron Man, grows up into John Slattery and fathers the title character.) Here are some things you might not know about him. More
Actors are known for going to extremes for movie roles – Christian Bale lost a scary amount of weight for his role in The Machinist, and Renee Zellweger famously packed on pounds for Bridget Jones’ Diary. Depending on the star, learning a new language is better than having to gain or lose a bunch of weight. More
I have absolutely nothing against Keith David as a person. The talented, prolific actor lent his voice to one of my favorite animated shows — he was Goliath on Gargoyles — graced us in Coraline as The Cat, and was probably fantastic on the otherwise poor superhero series The Cape. But every time I see him in something, I feel a brief shudder.
I blame Requiem for a Dream. Darren Aronofsky‘s bleak film, something of a cautionary tale about drug use, featured David in a small role as Big Tim, a man who puts Jennifer Connelly‘s character in sex shows in exchange for heroin to fuel her habit. Think Connelly getting it on with another girl while men in business suits jeer above them, all with Big Tim as the perverted gatekeeper. More
Remember Ricky Gervais‘ 2005 series Extras? It was the painfully funny tale of an actor who doggedly paid his dues, always aspiring to break into Hollywood but perpetually falling short. It looks like Gervais has a counterpart in Jesse Heiman, a 33-year-old actor who has appeared in seemingly every movie and TV show. Many of his roles, starting with 2001′s American Pie 2, have been vague — Beer Bong Student, Monopoly Game Piece Thief, Winking Comic Book Nerd — and/or uncredited, but someone has slavishly updated his IMDb page with every appearance. There’s also this great video picking him out of the crowd in Glee, The Social Network, and Arrested Development. (The fact that it’s set to “Lux Aeterna” from Requiem for a Dream makes it all the more epic.) Considering the breadth of his Hollywood career, I think you can assume that he’s havin’ a laugh. More
