5 Songs I Heard For The First Time On Radio Disney

5 Songs I Heard For The First Time On Radio Disney

Do you guys remember Radio Disney? AM 1310, as we knew it in Marin, was the shit back when I was in middle school. Long before Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, the station played hits by stars like The A*Teens and 98 Degrees; so many teen groups from the ’90s and early ’00s got their start on that station. They also had plenty of chances to call in for contests and just to chat with the DJs (none of whose names I actually remember). Radio Disney turns 15 this month, so here are the songs I can remember hearing for the very first time after the catchphrase “Radio Disney—we’re all ears!” More »

Gallery: Tanner Hall Star Tom Everett Scott Grew Up Good

Gallery: Tanner Hall Star Tom Everett Scott Grew Up Good

Tom Everett Scott is one of those hot character actors; you see him every once in a while in movies and on TV, but it never seems like he actually found a project that entirely fits him. Can you believe it was fifteen years ago that we met him as shy drummer Guy Patterson in That Thing You Do!? It seems like Hollywood wanted him to be the next Tom Hanks, and while that never happened, Tom’s really warmed to the “hot asshole” role, playing jerks that you still want to sleep with in Because I Said So and Tanner Hall (out today). Won’t you join us in watching Tom grow from gawky kid to Rooney Mara‘s hot family friend? More »

Chick Flick Check List: ‘Love, Wedding, Marriage’

Chick Flick Check List: 'Love, Wedding, Marriage'

Based on the trailer, Mandy Moore‘s new romantic comedy Love, Wedding, Marriage seems to hit all the right points: A diverse cast of actors that we’d like to see more of, and the chance for Moore to play neurotic as Ava, a marriage counselor whose newest clients are her divorcing parents. Instead, the movie quickly devolves into uneven plotting sprinkled with some fun moments. Which is too bad, considering that Dermot Mulroney inexplicably is the director. But is his presence reason enough to put the movie on your Netflix queue in a few months? More »

Video Gallery: Mandy Moore, Singer or Actress?

Video Gallery: Mandy Moore, Singer or Actress?

We met Mandy Moore from her 1999 single “Candy” and although she was often lumped in with the Disney girls, her career had the opposite trajectory: She started as a singer, then branched out as an actress. The thing is, we’ve always had trouble figuring out which one she’s actually trying to be, since nearly every project of hers has one of her songs in it. To settle the debate, we look at her big movies (in chronological order) and rate whether — regardless of lines or soundtrack listings — she’s appearing more as a singer or an actress. More »

What Has Andrew Keegan Been Up To in the Past 12 Years?

What Has Andrew Keegan Been Up To in the Past 12 Years?

Imagine my surprise when, watching Mandy Moore‘s new movie Love, Wedding, Marriage, I spotted Andrew Keegan playing a cute rabbi’s son. But what was really surprising was that he got literally 30 seconds in the whole movie. This is Joey Donner we’re talking about here! That got me thinking — what has the famous bully from 10 Things I Hate About You been doing since 1999? More »

‘Tangled’ Premiere Brings Out Mandy Moore, Next Round of Disney Robot Children

'Tangled' Premiere Brings Out Mandy Moore, Next Round of Disney Robot Children

Tangled is Disney’s twist (so to speak) on the Rapunzel story, and it marks a return to regular animation in our post-Pixar universe. But don’t think that means Tangled isn’t as “cool” as Wall-E. After all, it did have a Double Rainbow parody for viral marketing, and stars the voice of one of Disney’s least-tarnished child alums: Mandy Moore (along with Chuck‘s Zachary Levi).

But like a Kanye West phoenix, a troupe of diversely ethnic young Disney stars have risen from the ashes of their previous Hannah Montana predecessors, willing to take on the world and become the next Miley Cyrus/Demi Lovato train wreck. It’s kind of cute, kind of creepy, but allll Disney! More »
