Jake Gyllenhaal Packs A Punch In Southpaw Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
jake-gyllenhaal-southpaw

Jake Gyllenhaal packed on at least 15 pounds of muscle for his latest role as a down-and-out junior middleweight champion in Southpaw. Dude is ripped. Definitely a far cry from his slight frame in Nightcrawler.

The 34-year-old actor plays a boxer, named Billy “The Great” Hope, making a big comeback after breaking down following a personal tragedy. Rachel McAdams costars as his wife with additional appearances by Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Rita Ora, Naomie Harris and real-life boxer Victor Ortiz.

Check out the trailer below which features a new song from Eminem. Southpaw arrives in theaters July 31.

billy-zane-funny-or-die

The worlds of many teenage girls as they knew it crumbled earlier this week when Zayn Malik announced his departure from One Direction. Devastated by the news, they took to social media to express their outrage and broken hearts.

Funny or Die decided to capitalize on the situation by enlisting Billy Zane for their latest spoof. For those youngins who don’t know who Billy is, he’s that bad guy from Titanic ;)

The 49-year-old actor mistakenly thinks all the tweets are directed towards him. “I just way to say to my adoring and mysteriously heartbroken fans, you light up my world like nobody else. You don’t know you’re beautiful, and that is what makes you beautiful.” He jokingly adds, “I don’t want to be nitpicky, but just for the sake of record, it’s Z-A-N-E, not Z-A-Y-N.”

Check out the amusing clip below which features Zane also reciting a few “My Heart Will Go On” lyrics.

nbc-revives-90s-sitcom-coach

Out of all the sitcoms to resurrect from the 1990s, this one comes out of left field. Even more surprising is the fact, the original series ran on ABC initially. NBC, though, somehow got their peacock claws on Coach and convinced Craig T. Nelson to reprise his role. The network announced it’s ordered 13 episodes.

Coach aired on ABC from 1989-1997 and was a Top 20 hit show for the first six seasons. The revival will “pick up 18 years later and find his character Hayden Fox interrupting his retirement to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.”

It’s not known if any of the other original cast members are returning. Hopefully, a couple of them make special cameos.

This revival comes off the heels of another 90s classic being resurrected. FOX renewed The X Files for a six-episode event earlier this week. What show from the 90s will be resuscitated next? Weigh in below.

At times, I don’t see the family resemblance and at other times… HOLY SMOKE, he’s the spitting image of his famous father. As evident in the photo above. How much does Scott Eastwood look like Clint? Doppelganger indeed.

The 29-year-old actor poses for a stylish editorial snapped by Greg Lotus in the latest issue of Flaunt magazine. No doubt in part to promote his latest film, The Longest Ride, hitting theaters on April 10. It’s another Nicholas Sparks novel come to life on the silver screen. Check out more photos below.

Hilary Duff Teases Sparkly New Song

On March 31, Hilary Duff returns to her sitcom roots when Younger premieres on TV Land. The new series, from the creator of Sex and the City, follows a 40-year-old recently divorced mother (played by Sutton Foster) looking to get a job, which proves difficult for a woman of her age. She undergoes a makeover to pass for her mid-twenties to work in a publishing firm. Duff plays one of her co-workers.

In a new promo for the show, Hilary teases her new single “Sparks.” Based on the minute-long preview, it appears the Duff has embraced her pop-dance sound from years ago. This track has hit potential written all over it with its dance beat and pop sensibility. I can’t wait to hear the entire thing. Give it a listen below.

I’ve been known to sing along with my favorite divas on long road trips. There’s nothing that passes the time on the road than belting out ballads from the likes of Mariah, Whitney and Celine to name a few. This is pretty much my dream come true. That James Corden is one lucky bloke.

Mariah Carey made an appearance on The Late Late Show during Corden’s first week hosting the late night staple. The ‘elusive chanteuse’ sang some of her memorable hits including “Always Be My Baby,” “Fantasy,” “Vision of Love” and “Thirsty” while James commuted to work.

Even though Carey’s voice isn’t at its peak form, it’s still pretty stellar. Check out the fun clip below.

April 11 ya’ll. Mark your calendars now!!! This is no April Fools joke. Cookie effing Lyons is heading to Saturday Night Live. Words can’t even describe my excitement. Taraji P. Henson is going to slay it during her hosting debut.

Even though the long-running late night staple already aired an Empire spoof during Chris Hemsworth’s episode, I expect another sketch based on the FOX hip-hop drama to come. Fingers crossed, they poke fun at Cookie slammin down Boo Boo Kitty on the pool table.

NBC also revealed that Michael Keaton is also hosting. The Birdman actor will appear on the April 4 show, marking his third time presiding over Studio 8H. Find out which musical act is on board for each episode below.

Downton Abbey To End After Season 6

In: Donovan, TV Shows
downton-abbey-season-6-last

Brace yourselves folks. Downton Abbey will close its doors after Season Six. PBS and producer Carnival Films announced the heartbreaking news Thursday.

“The ‘Downton’ journey has been amazing for everyone aboard. People ask if we knew what was going to happen when we started to make the first series and the answer is that, of course we had no idea. Exactly why the series had such an impact and reached so many people around the world, all nationalities, all ages, all types, I cannot begin to explain. But I do know how grateful we are to have been allowed this unique experience. I suspect the show will always be a principal marker in most of our careers as we set out from here, and if so, I consider that a blessing and a compliment.” – Julian Fellowes, writer and creator

The period drama is PBS’ most popular series of all time. During it’s run, it’s amassed 51 Emmy nominations so far and winning 11. Not to mention numerous Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, BAFTAs and so on.

I’m curious exactly what caused the production company to pull the trigger? Was it production costs? The drama’s stars wanting to move on? Or some other crazy reason? Clearly, it’s not the ratings because it’s a juggernaut in that area.
