Jason Biggs goes public about his son’s privates, Alec Baldwin may be putting the brakes on his plan to leave the media glare, and the sequel to Sin City could have a slicker look than the original.
We weren’t the only ones glued to last night’s season premiere of The Bachelor. Orange Is The New Black star and American Pie alum Jason Biggs is known for his opinionated Twitter musings, and apparently, he’s a Chris Harrison fan as well. Biggs filled the feeds of Twitter users during The Bachelor‘s West Coast debut of Season 18, and is now being criticized for his
brutally honest harsh take on the 27 female hopefuls.
The Gossip Table dishes about our TLC movie, which premieres tonight, Tara Reid hits out at Jason Biggs, and we wonder if a villain from the Thor flicks will soon get a spin-off.
Fact: The Netflix hit Orange Is the New Black is based on a memoir of the same name, by Piper Kerman, on whom Taylor Schilling’s character Piper Chapman is based. Fact: Piper Kerman is married to writer Larry Smith. Fiction: This is a spoiler for the show’s love triangle. Or maybe it is. On the red carpet of their PaleyFest: Made in New York panel last week, we asked show creator Jenji Kohan and stars Schilling, Jason Biggs and Natasha Lyonne whether they’re Team Alex or Team Larry — in the time honored tradition of reducing complex relationships to sports analogies.
It’s a testament to the engrossing nature of Orange Is the New Black that it basically never occurred to us that the show features TWO American Pie stars. Jason Biggs, as incarcerated onetime drug mule Piper’s (Taylor Schilling) fiance Larry, and Natasha Lyonne, as the prison’s junkie philosopher Nicky Nichols, didn’t have any scenes together in season one, and it’s hard to imagine why they would so far. But after we saw them interact on the red carpet of the PaleyFest: Made in New York OITNB panel on Wednesday night, we are starting a petition to make Jenji Kohan contrive to put them together.
Orange Is The New Black was released too late to be considered for the 2013 Emmy nominations, but the brand new Netflix series has quickly established itself to be one of the frontrunners for next year’s competition. The show, which is the latest series from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, revolves around the travails of Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling), a blonde WASPy type whose seemingly picture perfect life is turned upside-down when she’s sent to prison on drug smuggling charges. The series is drawing raves from critics and being streamed at record rates, thanks to its outstanding balance of comedy, drama and sexytimes, not to mention its ethnically diverse (and largely female) ensemble cast.
Jared Leto showed off his newly shaved eyebrows Monday night as he arrived at the 22nd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City. Thanks, Jared, we weren’t planning on sleeping between now and Christmas, anyhow. The freaky new look is apparently for his role in The Dallas Buyers Club, the same flick that caused Matthew McConaughey to starve himself down to the size of our pinky. Jared himself was recently photographed in some very loud drag for the role. Damn, this movie has gotta be some serious Oscar-bait!
We’ve all heard about actors changing their hairstyles for film roles, but it’s a bit more rare to be told to buzz the brows! But still Leto is by no means the first guy who’s had to do crazy stuff to his eyebrows in the name of Hollywood glory. Head down to the gallery below to see 10 famous faces with some wacked out brows!

Now that Nickelodeon is rebooting the uber-popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, beginning this Saturday morning, a whole new generation will be shouting “Cowabunga!” as they imagine a life of fighting crime and eating pizza. Rob Paulsen, who voiced Raphael in the 1987 cartoon series, is back as Donatello, and he told VH1 and fellow stars Jason Biggs, Sean Astin and Greg Cipes about the privileges associated with being a turtle. “When you work on something this iconic … you make a phone call to a child in a hospital, or you show up at a friend’s kid’s birthday party or you go show up in the hospital — whatever it is, the impact that the Turtles have on children is so profound, way beyond action figures, ratings, all of that,” he said. “I now get email and notes from people I talked to 20 years ago.”
We’re happy to see Paulsen back doing what he loves, but that got us wondering what has become of the stars of the equally beloved and maligned TMNT movies of the ’90s. Those live-action flicks featured appearances by the likes of Vanilla Ice, Elias Koteas and Paige Turco, not to mention the voice talents of Corey Feldman and Kevin Clash, whom many of you might know as the voice of Elmo. Take a look at the career highlights of a number of the stars of the first three movies, and then relive a little of your childhood magic by tuning in to TMNT this Saturday!
American Reunion opens in theaters today, introducing a whole new generation of impressionable teens to the magic of band camp jokes and pie sex. We caught up with Chris Klein at the movie’s premiere, and he told us that things on set were even crazier than in 1999. People partied, prank wars ensued, and Jason Biggs greeted him by slapping him in the nuts. That’s the spirit!
After a long nine years since the last theatrical installment (sorry, we’re not counting those four revered direct-to-DVD masterpieces), American Reunion finally hits theaters today. From what we’ve heard, the latest chapter of the American Pie franchise is gonna be the wildest yet! Although some of the gang is married with kids, it doesn’t mean they’ve mellowed with age. VH1 News hit up the L.A. premiere and managed to catch up with Chris Klein, who plays lax-bro incarnate Chris “Oz” Ostreicher in the series and offered this comparison to the original: “It’s more fun because the jokes are a little crazier, and I think us as a cast is a little bit crazier,” he told our very own Kate Spencer. “I don’t think anybody is any more mature or responsible than we were when we were 18 and 19 years old.” Phew, that’s a relief!
It’s hard to believe it’s been a whopping 13 years since the beloved original was released. Check out the gallery below to see your favorite American Pie stars, all grown up! From pie-shaggin’ Jason Biggs to band camper Alyson Hannigan, Glee-wanna-be Mena Survari to Stifler’s Mom, they’re all here! Head on down to see, and get ready to feel reallllly old…
