The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) recently released the official poster for this year’s Oscar ceremony and now we have the first official video promo. Produced with Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die, the clip titled “Off The Grid“, features Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox on a worldwide hunt to track down Billy Crystal. Glad to see Fox is working again after that awful “Jennifer’s Body“. I digress. Along the way, the two bump into a couple of celebrity cameos. See if you can spot them out. Eventually they find Crystal hiding out in a cave somewhere in Mongolia.

“We wanted to try something a little bit different this year instead of a traditional, clip-based piece,” says academy chief marketing officer Christina Kounelias in a statement. “The trailer has a fun twist that conveys how excited everyone is to have Billy back.”

The entire piece has the feel of a summer action-adventure film rather than a stuffy traditional promo. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that show producers Brian Grazer and Don Mischer have more ideas like this in store for upcoming promos and more importantly the show itself. I love the Oscars, but sometimes they can go on forever, and ever, and ever, and ever. You get my drift.

When I first heard that Eddie Murphy stepped down from hosting the 84th Academy Awards I was a little bummed. I thought he’d bring new energy and his unique comedic skills would liven up the marathon show. That said, I’m glad Billy Crystal was brought in to step up and save the day. The “City Slickers” star is arguably one of the best Oscar show hosts ever. Based on “Off The Grid“, it looks like Crystal hasn’t lost his touch. Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

Live! with Kelly & Rob. Not sure if it has a memorable ring but it looks like that may be just what ABC is looking for in the long run. Rob finished a two-day run with Kelly as the official guest co-host joining a lengthly list of men who have saddled up next to Kelly since Regis’ departure. Heads at ABC were so impressed with his performance and chemistry with Kelly that they have reached out to Rob’s reps to see if he’d be interested in filling the position permanently.

This would be a big step and a big change for Lowe. He currently keeps himself busy with filming projects and the hilarious NBC comedy Parks and Recreation where he plays the over-eccentric Chris Traeger – a role he plays quite convincingly by the way. Rob also has a TV mini-series in pre-production titled To Appomattox which is set to begin in 2013.

I’m unsure of whether of not Rob could commit to the new full-time position as co-host. That seems to be the problem with many of the guest co-hosts that have filled the chair beside Kelly lately. While many of them are great at “playing Regis” for a day or two, many of them have made very profitable and successful careers elsewhere. They need someone who is already established in this form of media, like E! News hottie, Jason Kennedy. Only time will tell. Until then, check out Rob’s role in the co-host chair chatting with Darren Criss and Vanessa Lachey.

Check out Rob in the co-host chair on “Live!” after the jump.

Last night, Ricky Martin tweeted a picture of himself with the cast of Glee on his first day on set, and boy does he look hot (you can see for yourself in the latter part of this post). The photo above showing Ricky Martin and Lea Michele is actually from the 2010 Grammy Awards, which wasn’t actually the first time they’ve been on stage together. Martin and Michele were actually on Les Misérables on Broadway together in 1996 – so they go way back.

In cased you didn’t already know, Ricky Martin will be guest starring on the hit show as “the hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio.” Sounds about right. Let’s just hope he shakes his bon-bon in the episode. The episode airs later this month.

For now, check out the photo(s) with the cast below. I’m sure they were all “livin’ la vida loca” having this hottie join them on set.

This woman just doesn’t stop, but I’m glad she’s getting back what she put in. On January 16th, countless stars will help Betty celebrate her 90th birthday. The special is called, “Betty White’s 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America’s Golden Girl” and it will air at 8pm on NBC. Celebs that will be part of the show included Ellen Degeneres, Tina Fey, Hugh Jackman, Carol Burnett, Amy Poehler, and many more. I’ve included a more extensive list below. I can’t wait to see Betty’s show when she comes to Vancouver in February for ComedyFest!

Following the special will be a sneak preview of “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” at 9:30 p.m. This is a show about old people doing pranks, based on the Belgian version of the show called “Benidorm Bastards” and it will be hosted by Betty White. I am a sucker for pranks shows (Just For Laughs Gags, Punk’d, etc.) so I’ll definitely be tuning in to this one. I’ve included a video of the German version below so you can get an idea what to expect. It’s quite hilarious.

Famous People You Didn’t Know Were In Star Trek

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

This article is for all my trekkie homos out there and those pop culture queens who love a good piece of trivia. While I am not a full fledged trekkie, I have enjoyed myself a fair share of seasons from Star Trek: The Next Generation and I think I’ve seen every episode of Voyager. While it wasn’t their best work, I did watch Deep Space Nine with my dad when it was on the air. So, when Patrick saw this and shared it with me, I couldn’t help but share it with you.

The Star Trek franchise has spanned multiple decades and generations with various takes on the original, classic tale imagined by Gene Roddenberry. The latest adaption has been the film version created by J.J. Abrams with its initial movie grossing over $380 million at the box office and now, a sequel on the way.

While there have been many celebrities who worked on full seasons of Star Trek (like Whoopi Goldberg and Patrick Stewart), there are a few stars who you may not know had a role or two on the sci-fi cult hit. Thanks to a user at IMGUR, we can check out a few of those celebrities who made their appearance. Some of the side-by-side-comparisons may shock you. Check out the list below.

My friend Steve Adams over at Steamy Windows Productions just sent me this hilarious video they put together that will give you a better understanding of who Tom Ford, the icon is and what exactly is inside a creative mind like his. “I merely wanted to make a little montage of Tom Ford’s ‘I’ moments,” says Adams. “What. A. Genius.”

It literally is just that. Adams pieced together countless clips of Ford talking about himself from OWN’s Visionaries: Tom Ford documentary. The clips either include him saying “I,” “me,” or “Tom Ford”. It’s a little ridiculous how many times he says it.

Thank you Steamy Window Productions for creating this gem! Can’t wait to see what they come up with next. Enjoy the short video (jam packed with wisdom) below.

On January 12th, NBC’s 30 Rock is back with Season 6 of the hilarious comedy, starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. This season, Liz Lemon is back at the office and totally refreshed after her “break,” and she’s even got a new love interest. His name is Chriss (Yes, the spelling is correct) and his played by the incredibly sexy, James Marsden. The question is, does Jack Donaghy approve and does it even matter?

Other guest stars and returning guest stars include Kelsey Grammer, Will Arnett, and Denise Richards among others. In the photo above Richards, who plays a celebrity spokesperson for the idiots of the world, is speaking to the press and she says, “These microphones… look like black ice cream cones.” LMFAO. Oh, and Liz Lemon also gets a new assistant, with Kristen Schaal joining the cast as ‘Hazel Whatshername’.

So excited for the new season, and you will be too after you check out the fantastic promo they put together. The season premiere is Thursday, January 12th at 8/7c on NBC.

For TV lovers, ending the holidays is a breath of fresh air when our favorite series’ return to their rightful time slots with new episodes for us to enjoy. On Tuesday, January 10, Glee will debut their first new episode back titled Yes/No. A lot is about to go down in this episode so make sure you’re holding on to your hat.

One of the most exciting moments for the show will probably be the introduction of guest star Nene Leakes. However, I am more excited personally for the rendition of Summer Nights from Grease sung by Amber Riley & Chord Overstreet aka Mercedes and Sam . At the end of season two, it looked like they had a thing going, but on return from the break, Sam had moved away and Mercedes had moved on. Will love rekindle for these two?

While only the audio of the song has been revealed, I can tell you that I think it will be one of those Glee numbers that is actually memorable from the season. Not to mention, the crew packed up and headed to the original location where they filmed the famous outdoor Rydell High scenes. And from the screenshots from the episode, it looks like they nail some of the famous images from the movie’s iconic number. Listen to Summer Nights below.

Check out Glee’s version of “Summer Nights” after the jump.
