If there’s one thing we can count on every year, it’s Neil Patrick Harris and his family’s Halloween costumes being totally epic. Over the past few years, he and his husband, David Burtka, and their twin children, Gideon and Harper, consistently blow it out of the water with intricate and perfect

Everyone needs to step up their Flashback Friday game now that Jake Gyllenhaal revealed his childhood Halloween costumes. The actor showed off his charming side yet again as he detailed the intricate outfits that his father put together for him and his sister, Maggie, when they were kids, ranging

In more remake or reboot news, another nostalgic movie is getting a new twist. Bend It Like Beckham will become a musical in London’s West End, and the movie’s director, Gurinder Chadha, is also directing the musical. The 2002 film was the role that helped break out Keira Knightley, who was only 17

When Daniel Radcliffe rapped Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics,” a collective gasp was heard ‘round the world. Harry Potter can rap? Yep, and his hidden talents don’t stop there. Through the years, we’ve learned a lot about Radcliffe through his acting projects. He can sing and dance, as evidenced

After the Sound of Music Live! happened last year, the idea of trying to do another live musical on TV seemed like a bad idea. But NBC is giving it another go this holiday season, and the promo for Peter Pan Live! is finally here. Allison Williams doesn’t sing a note in the new video, but she does

Though it seems like far longer ago, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced two years ago. It’s time for everyone to move on. During their relationship and after their divorce, headlines have still focused on Holmes and her TomKat days, whether it’s about their daughter, Suri, or drama about her love

Just one day after Amanda Bynes was released from psychiatric hold on Thursday, she took to Twitter with a slew of worrisome allegations about her family. Bynes’ parents had gained conservatorship over her earlier this week, but she was reportedly allowed to walk out of the psych hospital because

One of the most star-studded photo ops ever happened when Kanye West and Madonna snapped a selfie together at Keep a Child Alive’s 2014 Black Ball in NYC. Though we don’t get to see the actual selfie, Madonna posted a picture of them taking one of themselves — so meta. Kim Kardashian was nowhere to

There has never been a more perfect time for a Portlandia Season 5 sneak peek. On the eve of Halloween, IFC released a clip of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein at their spookiest — a.k.a. as goths planning their future funeral. Wearing head-to-toe black and rocking white-painted faces, they look

After Jake Gyllenhaal’s Water War with Jimmy Fallon, you probably need a cold shower. It’s OK — it’s been a long hiatus without him in our lives, and now he’s shaved his intense beard and is laying on the charm thick. After composing yourself from the happy reunion, take a walk down memory lane to

Lindsay Lohan, I’ma let you finish, but Jake Gyllenhaal and Jimmy Fallon’s Water War was the best of all time. In fact, the duo was so fun to watch on the Tonight Show segment that I think Gyllenhaal could be Fallon’s new No. 2 (when Justin Timberlake isn’t busy, of course). Surprisingly (but

Over the past few months, we’ve seen many different trailers and teasers for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, and the final one dropped today. Looking back, most of the footage is the same — especially Plutarch and President Coin questioning if Katniss can handle leading the revolution — but
