knock-knock-canceled

Well, that didn’t last long. After two low-rated showings, FOX pulled the plug on Knock Knock Live. The Ryan Seacrest-hosted show’s last episode only delivered 1.6 million viewers and a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49. Not even Justin Bieber surprising a fan with a Quinceanara could lure in viewers ;)

I watched half of the premiere and literally fell asleep. With The Million Second Quiz only lasting a season on NBC, and this trainwreck on FOX for a split second, Seacrest must be getting a bit antsy about finding an on-camera gig after American Idol ends next year.

Did you watch the show? Do you think Seacrest can find another hit show to star in? At least producing those Kardashian shows will keep him busy for a long time. Sadly enough. Sound off below.

Brie Larson has been kicking around for a while now, appearing in films like 21 Jump Street, Short Term 12 and Don Jon. However, it’s her role as Amy Schumer’s sister in Trainwreck that’s putting the spotlight on the talented 25-year-old actress. Her star will no doubt rise even more after people see her in Room. It’s been selected to be shown in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Larson plays a woman named Ma who is being held captive with her five-year-old son in a single small room for years. The film is based on the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue. Joan Allen and William H. Macy also star. Room is schedule for a limited release on October 16, then nationwide on November 8.

Check out the haunting and heartbreaking trailer below. Based on the short clip, it’s clear Brie will be scoring some critics awards and perhaps some Oscar attention.

Becky G Books Empire Gig

The roster of guest stars for Empire keeps growing. Becky G is the latest to snag a part for the FOX hip-hop drama’s sophomore run. Not much about the character the 18-year-old singer is playing has been revealed, other than her name- Valentina.

The “Can’t Stop Dancing” singer joins previously announced guest stars, Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Adam Rodriguez, Chris Rock and The Wire’s Andre Royo.

Wise move for the show to enlist a rising talent to inject some youthful energy. Love Becky G. She sorta reminds me of this generation’s JoJo. “Shower” was a Top 20 hit but girlfriend needs a huge smash. She’s too talented not to have a chart-topper on her resume.

Excited to see Becky G on Empire? Do you like her music? Weigh in below.

Madonna is just leaking all over the place these days. Not only is her new material at the mercy of pirates but now items from the vault are at risk too.

Last week, two clips of Madonna voguing with backup dancers/singers Donna De Lory and Niki Harris on the set of “Vogue” hit online. Today, a four minute plus video of the iconic black-and-white clip has now been uncovered. Not only is it a rough cut of the visual, but it also includes the then 31-year-old’s studio vocals without any background music. The entire thing almost plays like one of those ‘without music‘ parodies.

If that wasn’t enough vintage Madge to your liking, b-roll of “Rain” video has made its way onto a Russian video sharing website. It’s 37 minutes of a pixie-cut Madonna serving face for the camera. Check out both clips below.

September is a key month for the publishing world. Editors bring out the big guns to ensure that their all-important issue flies off the newsstands.

Twice a year, the windows of the highrise we live in get cleaned. I can honestly say, none of the guys dangling on a rope have ever looked like this. I don’t know what I’d do if I looked outside one day and saw this stud in all his shirtless glory. Let’s just say, I’d make a quick run to the bathroom ;)

To introduce their limited Flash Line, Modus Vivendi outfitted model Alexandros Kaltsidis in the underwear. The pieces caress the Greek stud’s toned assets quite perfectly. Check out more photos of the sexy window washer below.

Did you love “Latch” from Disclosure and Sam Smith? Then you’ll appreciate this latest offering from Sam Sparro. It sounds more like a Disclosure song than Disclosure’s actual new song “Omen.”

Hands Up” is off the Australian singer’s new EP Quantum Physical Volume 2. The deep house gem is an extremely slinky track primed to take over dance floors across the world. It has the potential to be Sparro’s biggest hit since his breakout “Black and Gold” in 2008. Give it a listen below.

Is Beyonce Joining NBC’s The Wiz?

NBC is really on a mission to make The Wiz Live! a star-studded spectacle. On the heels of Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah joining the cast, comes news of an even bigger star possibly heading down the yellow brick road.

E! News reports that Beyonce has been offered the role of Glinda The Good Witch. If the peacock network is somehow able to make this happen, it would be epic. This would be a huge coup for the live production.

Jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater and legendary singer Lena Horne played the part in the Broadway and feature film respectively. Queen B would definitely be in fine company.

If Bey isn’t interested or the powers-that-be don’t shell out enough cash, another actress is reportedly being considered for the role. Find out who below.
