Orange Is The New Black Cast Raise Money For Seriously Injured Co-Star

The Winter Ball For Autism - Arrivals

Michelle Hurst, who plays the hardened Miss Claudette on the hit Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black, has emerged from a 16-day medically-induced coma following a car accident before the holidays. The news comes as the series launched a Kickstarter-like fundraising campaign on YouCaring.com to help Hurst’s family to pay for medical expenses and time off. Hurst will need the expenses and time off to recover from injuries close to her spine. She’s currently in the ICU at the UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.

View Photo Gallery

Congrats to Lupita Nyong’o on picking up her first (of what we hope is many to come) Oscar nomination for her role in 12 Years a Slave. The actress has enjoyed a big few months since the movie’s release thanks to a number of honors and accolades for her heart wrenching performance as a tortured and brutalized slave. While she commands a serious presence on screen, her life off has been anything but. A peek inside her Instagram account shows the adorable side of Nyong’o as she goes from awards show to awards show, picking up trophies and new celebrity besties along the way. Oh, hugging Lena Dunham? Check! Selfies with Jared Leto? Mark it off the list.

We can’t wait to see what she’ll post at future shows and who will make her Oscars Hug Checklist. We hope it includes fellow nominees Jonah Hill and Jennifer Lawrence.

Ride Along Exclusive: Ice Cube Says There’s No Place For Kevin Hart In N.W.A

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are the perfect odd couple in Ride Along, which follows a bumbling wannabe police officer/gamer as he hangs with his girlfriend’s protective cop brother for a day to prove he’s worthy of her hand in marriage. Hilarity ensues (duh) and most of it stems from the on-screen chemistry of Hart and Cube, whom we should thank (along with the women of The Heat) for bringing back the buddy action-comedy in full force.

Style File: Those Kardashian/Jenner Sisters Love A Topknot!

View Photo Gallery

Few hairstyles are chicer than the topknot right now — it’s the look on runways and red carpets — and ladies, we really have Kourtney Kardashian to thank. A couple of years ago, she made the sleek high bun her signature, rocking the glam style to events and on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (and its spin-offs!). Soon, all of her siblings followed suit (sans Rob, we assume), which inspired a slew of  “Kardashian topknot” tutorials on YouTube.

After Jack Ryan: Here Are The Film Franchises We Really Want To See Rebooted

View Photo Gallery

Every couple of years, when Hollywood runs out of fresh ideas it returns to the well of franchises that have proved to be hits. However, a few are in serious updating and, with the main stars aging, a fresh crop of actors to take over the series. However, we’re not suggesting that all of them follow the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit route and star from point zero. That’s been done before, multiple times (see: Batman, Superman).
