On Friday, Sesame Street released a video of Peter Dinklage (Game Of Thrones) visiting the show to teach kids about “Simon Says.” His segment prompted us to think back on all the times that our favorite Emmy nominees made guest appearances on the series. And we were surprised by just how many stopped by: everyone from Alec Baldwin to Julia Louis-Dreyfus have made their way down to Sesame Street.
Don Draper and Walter White are serious men who do serious things with a lot of serious attention. Everything they do is so intense that you forget they are only characters. It even becomes hard to separate the characters from the actors who play them. But we managed to find a few moments when the 2013 Primetime Emmy nominees for outstanding acting in a dramatic role are cutting loose and having fun – you know. reminding us that they are people too.
Kristin Cavallari tells Janell Snowden of VH1 News that she does not miss reality television. As we all know, the actress and designer became famous as the mean girl on Laguna Beach and later on The Hills when she took over for Lauren Conrad. While she admits that she had a lot of fun starring on the two shows, she’s done with that world of entertainment.
“I definitely don’t want to do it again,” admits Cavallari backstage at Junk Food presents NFL/Elements Curated by Kristin Cavallari runway show during New York Fashion Week.
Cavallari also says she did not see the alternate ending of The Hills (sad face), which aired during MTV’s Retro Mania programming block in July. The ending, which Cavallari did not see, shows Brody saying goodbye to Kristin before returning to his apartment where LC was waiting. (Gasp! Watch it all here.)
With Ricky Gervais’ Derek debuting today on Netflix, it’s obvious the service is staying in the original programming game. And as other series like House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black get tons of buzz, you might wonder what streaming gems will whet your appetite. Check out our guide to Netflix’s content and which television shows you should be watching after you finish your favorite original series.
It felt like yesterday that we were sitting down to find out if Joey and Dawson would ever go all the way or learning about the crazy life of strangers on True Life. Fifteen years ago I was definitely too young to understand what Sex and the City was actually about or appreciate the impact of TRL (then Total Request Live). The same year brought us Felicity, who won the heart of America and later lost it when she cut her hair. It was TV’s first introduction to Aaron Sorkin who launched his small screen writing career with Sports Night. It was also the year that introduced us to Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling. It was 1998. And it feels like forever ago.
Every year, there are a few actors who break out in a big way. (Think: Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids.) The actress immediately turned her supporting role into several big hits at the box office. And then there are actors like Isla Fisher, who made a big splash in Wedding Crashers, but failed to become a stand out on her own. We love her, we support her, but we want more for her. She and the nine other names on this list are those break out stars that we wish had bigger careers.
It’s the end of the summer and it’s time to look back on all the fun we had. But for some it’s time to lick their wounds and forget everything that happened. Unfortunately for these celebs, their summer was plagued by box office bombs (Johnny Depp), bad hair (Brad Pitt), and Twitter meltdowns (Amanda Bynes). Awkward… But hey, winter is coming and soon we’ll forget all about it. Hopefully.
The summer is drawing to a close and it’s time to look back on who had the best (and worst) summer. For the ten celebrities listed here, it was quite a whirlwind season filled with breakout roles, unexpected hits, big hair and even bigger box office returns. So who had the best summer ever? Henry Cavill (Man Of Steel), Anna Kendrick (“Cups”) and Oprahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (Lee Daniel’s The Butler) to name a few.
It’s the last week of August and that mean’s summer is coming to a close. The past few months have been filled many ups and several downs at the box office. Like every year, there are the highly-anticipated franchise films and always-talked about but never seen indie flicks. With at least two new films hitting theaters every weekend this summer, it was easy to miss a few. We rounded up the 10 films that you should go back and watch while you still can (or add them to your On Demand watch list). Read more…
