Who said a Men of the Year list could only include the fellas? Props to GQ, which released its annual Men of the Year issue, for giving the kick-ass Shailene Woodley her own cover. You go girl!
Steve Carell takes a dark turn in Foxcatcher, the gritty true story of the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz. Working alongside Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum, prosthetics and makeup helped the actors become their real life characters. Historically, those who transform themselves tend to receive lots of love come award season. So how well does Carell know other famous (fake) noses in film?
Since first premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, Foxcatcher, the biographical film about Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz, his brother David, and paranoid schizophrenic John du Pont, has been getting a lot of buzz in large part due to chilling performances from the film’s three leading men (Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, and Steve Carell). And now that it’s making the rounds at film festivals — it has since debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and will screen at the New York Film Festival starting Oct. 10 — Foxcatcher is all anyone’s going to be talking about from now until the 87th Academy Awards in February.
Shocking an audience is a difficult thing to do these days, so constantly titillated are our imaginations. But with so many series reinventing the traditional format, losing a main character is often a surefire way to leave audiences with mouths agape. Most recently, The Good Wife saw leading character Will Gardner (Josh Charles) die, and Homeland lost one of its main driving forces, maybe-terrorist Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis). While these unexpected character deaths rattled audiences, it’s yet to be seen how their respective shows will carry on without them. Read more…
Funny man Steve Carell, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, Foo Fighters‘ front man Dave Grohl, and other famous faces are joining in the fight against cancer. On September 5th, the Entertainment Industry Foundation will be holding their fourth biennial telethon, Stand Up To Cancer.
The film industry may be in a constant state of change, but the need for shirtless male actors has always withstood the test of time. And from Marlon Brando sweating it out in A Streetcar Named Desire to Chris Evans flexing some patriotic muscle in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we, the audience, remain unfazed by handsome men who just so happen to take their tops off on screen.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of our beloved Friends series finale. Cue the “I’ll Be There For You” theme song and let all that nostalgia sink in. Sigh. We wish more than anything we would get a reboot about our six favorite Manhattanites, but while we’re in the spirit, let’s celebrate the television remakes and adaptations that did happen. Starting with the ones we couldn’t (and still can’t) get enough of.
Nearly 10 years ago the world was introduced to a stately San Di-ago news anchor who prefers the aroma of rich mahogany and has a healthy taste for scotch (scotchy scotch scotch). Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was released on July 9, 2004, proving that Saturday Night Live alum Will Ferrell could carry a movie, and modern moviegoers enjoy fight sequences that reference West Side Story.
“I’m in a glass case of emotion!” “I love [insert lamp equivalent].” Those are the two lines I wind up quoting from Anchorman on a regular basis. It is without a doubt one of the most quotable movies of all time (maybe Mean Girls and Pulp Fiction come close). Now that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is finally in theaters, we’re very curious to see whether it will have at least one “Milk was a bad choice.” In the meantime, VH1 News asked Will Ferrell and company what lines they love from the first movie, and which ones they never want to hear again.
Which celeb was caught stripping down at a nightclub? Steve Carell opens up about a beloved quote, and we wonder which film villain be the evil queen of 2014.
