    Josh Duggar reportedly will be appointed to a senior executive position at FRC.

    The oldest son of the Duggar family could be joining the conservative Family Research Council in a senior executive position, according to three sources familiar with the organization.

    The hiring of Josh Duggar, 25, the oldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children, will be announced in about a month.

    Duggar will be in charge of FRC Action, the organization's lobbying arm, sources told BuzzFeed. "FRC Action (formerly American Renewal), the non-profit and tax-exempt legislative action arm of Family Research Council, was founded in 1992 to educate the general public and cultural leaders about traditional American values and to promote the philosophy of the Founding Fathers concerning the nature of ordered liberty," according to FRC Action's website.

    The Duggars parlayed their reality TV show fame into political activism in the past year, appearing on the stump for Rick Santorum throughout the Republican primary process. Josh Duggar recently announced on Today that he and his wife are expecting their third child.

    UPDATE: FRC's Vice President for Communications, JP Duffy, said that a final decision had not been made on Duggar's hiring. " We greatly appreciate Josh and the Duggar family's devotion to the pro-family movement and their counter-cultural courage," Duffy said. "This is why we have talked to Josh about the position. We have talked to him as well as other candidates but no decision has been made."

    Let us never forget how a true Christian like Josh Duggar feels about special needs children.

    This was posted on Josh's Instagram while he campaigned for Rick Santorum. At the time, Rick Santorum was taking a break from campaigning because his daughter, who has Trisomy 18, was hospitalized.

    Jennifer Lawrence’s unconventional ascent to Hollywood darling is well documented. Less than a month after the best-actress-Oscar winner secured her place in America’s hearts by tumbling on her way up to the Academy Awards podium, joking around with members of the press afterward, and appearing so easygoing about the evening that she flicked off reporters, Pope Francis appears to have ripped several pages out of Lawrence’s playbook during his first 72 hours as pontiff.He may not have confessed to taking a shot before his appearance on the St. Peter’s Basilica balcony, but he has already showed little interest in modifying himself for the media or his newfound fame, winningly recovered from a stumble caught on camera, and actually appeared somewhat easygoing (at least by pontiff standards).

    The New York Times reported on his down-to-Earth-ness following Wednesday’s election, noting that Pope Francis insisted on paying his Vatican City hotel bill on Thursday (maybe God will reimburse?). Additionally, he opted for simple black shoes instead of Benedict’s flashy red loafers, shared a minivan with several cardinals on the way to dinner*, and, proving that he is not a central character from The Devil Wears Prada, allowed others to join him in the elevator—even though pontiffs usually “descend alone.” (*It is uncertain whether Francis called shotgun or elected to climb over fellow passengers for one of the less-favorable rear seats, but said information would be telling.) Channeling J. Law’s chatty sensibility, Francis’s first homily was “conversational . . . albeit dense in biblical allusions,” in the Times’s appraisal. Photographic evidence that he used the subway in Argentina further suggests that Pope Francis is modest, mass-transportation tolerant, and maybe just Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from the block.

    More recently, Pope Francis suffered a vaguely embarrassing Jennifer Lawrence–like moment when he stumbled on the stairs during a meeting with the College of the Cardinals in the Vatican. After his black loafer apparently caught under his white vestments, similar to how Lawrence’s heel caught on her flowing pink Dior gown, Pope Francis tripped but caught himself before shaking the hand of Angelo Sodano, the dean of the College of Cardinals—who, for the sake of this Latin Oscars reenactment, assumes the role of Jean Dujardin. The humanizing moment (embedded below) has already spread its way across the Internet, being viewed by people who may not normally be interested in a foreign-language Catholic Church meeting. Viral Vatican success?

    Unfortunately for Pope Francis, his 78 hours’ worth of likeability is already being challenged by accusations that he failed to stop serious human-rights abuses during Argentina’s Dirty War in the 1970s. Even after the Vatican rushed to his defense—we all know that a simple vote of confidence from the trouble-plagued Catholic Church may not be enough to save his reputation—we think a more serious strategy from Lawrence’s playbook may be in order. To wit: a surprise encounter with Jack Nicholson, who just happens to be lurking behind Francis’s papal throne during the next filmed Vatican assembly?

    Last summer, Emma Watson tried to quell rumors that she would star in Focus Features’ big screen adaptation of E L James’ erotica novel Fifty Shades of Grey, but the role of Anastasia Steele just seems to keep finding its way back to her.

    This time the reports of her casting comes from hacker collective Anonymous, which with hacker team M3du5a stole and published documents from Constantin Film’s internal server. One document says Emma Watson is attached to star in Fifty Shades of Grey. It is not known, though, how old the document is. THR first reported this news last week. Today the story was picked up widely, with headlines claiming Watson was “confirmed” for the role spreading like wildfire.

    When contacted, Focus Features told EW that casting has not begun for Fifty Shades of Grey. The rep for Focus also confirmed that Constantin Film is not involved in the making of the movie.

    was anyone surprised that report wasn't true tho??
    like what kind of stranger bitch film studio would have that kind of important information

    Lil Wayne is in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, and we're told it doesn't look good ... TMZ has learned.

    We broke the story ... the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.

    Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.

    We're told Wayne is currently "unstable," and has been placed in a induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.

    We're told several people are at Wayne's bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.

    Sources say there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.

    We're told Wanye stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.

    source 1

    UPDATE: We're told Wayne is being prepared for his last rites ... with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.

    Wayne's mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles -- and we're told all major decisions about Wayne's health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.

    UPDATE 2: @MackMaine: Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love (i guess we'll have to wait to see who is lying: tmz or one of lil wayne's artists)

    With the Jodi Arias trial continuing to draw national interest and pull particularly strong ratings for HLN, another cable network is jumping on story.

    Lifetime is prepping a telepic about the woman accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The news was first reported by TV Guide.

    As the Lifetime brand evolves with more and more original series (The Client List, Army Wives and upcoming Devious Maids), true crime TV movies remain one of the network's biggest draws. Three of Lifetime's biggest ratings hauls of the last year and half came from Drew Peterson: Untouchable, Abducted: The Carlina White Story and Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

    The news is little surprise given how high-profile Arias coverage has become in recent weeks. The Arizona woman is accused killing former boyfriend Travis Alexander. He was found dead in 2008 with a gunshot to the head, multiple stab wounds and a slit throat.

    Joshua D. Maurer, Alixandre Witlin and Judith Verno, the same team behind Drew Peterson, will executive produce the untitled project. Their previous efforts include Lifetime's The Craigslist Killer and Hallmark's Who Is Clark Rockefeller?

    The Arias trial began on Jan. 2. Arias has testified that she did kill Alexander -- but in self-defense.


    Has anyone been following this trial? Gotta love how she conviently can't remember the parts that don't make any damn sense in her self-defense story.

    Michael Jackson‘s oldest son, Prince, plans on testifying at the wrongful death lawsuit trial of his superstar father, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

    “Prince absolutely plans on testifying,” a family insider tells Radar. “His grandmother, Katherine, filed the lawsuit against AEG, which was the concert promoter for Michael’s comeback concerts that were scheduled to take place in London. Katherine contends that AEG was responsible for her son’s death because they were responsible for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to be his physician.

    “Prince very much wants to take the stand and plans to tell jurors about specific conversations he had with his father about AEG. Prince will also testify about the fateful day his father died, as he was an eyewitness to the efforts that were made to save his life. There are no plans for either Paris or Blanket to testify though.

    Katherine suffered a huge legal setback this past week when a California court dismissed all of her claims against AEG and its president, Tim Leiweke. Additionally, all but one of her claims against the remaining defendants were dismissed and the California Court of Appeals ordered Michael’s medical records unsealed.

    Those remaining defendants have filed legal documents with the Court of Appeal in California to dismiss the one claim, on the question of whether AEG Live negligently hired Murray, Jackson’s long time personal physician.

    Murray was convicted in 2011 for the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael after administering a fatal dose of propofol to help the pop singer sleep. Murray hadn’t formally signed his employment contract with AEG at the time of Michael’s death.

    If the case proceeds to trial on April 1, “jurors will be very interested in what Prince has to say. He is a very well spoken and intelligent young man,” the source said. “When Michael was alive, he treated his oldest son as an adult. Michael consulted Prince on business decisions. Prince is extremely mature and considerate young man.”

    Elton John Cancels Show, Citing Medical Reasons
    Singer was set to perform tonight in Birmingham, Alabama

    Elton John has abruptly canceled his Friday night concert in Birmingham, Alabama due to medical reasons, reports the Associated Press. Officials at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex Arena, where John was slated to perform, did not offer additional details at press time.

    Ticketmaster is offering refunds for those who purchased tickets. John is scheduled to play at Memphis, Tennessee's FedExForum on Saturday night; there's no word on the status of that show.

    John is touring ahead of the September release of his new album, The Diving Board, which returns to the piano/bass/drums arrangements of his earliest albums. "It's got everything I love about American music," the singer-songwriter recently told Rolling Stone. "Gospel, soul, country."

    Welcome to this years SpoilerTV Cancellation Predictor.

    Last year, each week, we updated our data (see the notes below about how we get our data) in order to see if we could predict which show(s) would be renewed or cancelled. As you can see from last years summary, we did pretty well, with the exception of Fringe, Whitney, and Terra Nova our table was pretty accurate. The top 14 shows predicated to be cancelled were indeed cancelled.

    This index is by no means a 100% accurate guide about if your show is safe or in danger and should be seen as a bit of FUN.

    NOTES - Please Read:
    1) The Higher the Index Rating the more likely a show is to get cancelled, lower numbers = safety.
    2) This is an ongoing exercise that I hope to refine each week to make the index more accurate.
    3) Only the major networks are included currently ie ABC/FOX/CW/CBS/NBC.
    4) This chart is a prediction of all the shows using our own formula based on the viewing numbers, 18-49, and + 7 Numbers. These 3 factors are the main weighting of the Index number, however we also factor in things such as the Network they are on (eg CW shows get lower numbers), the day of week they air (eg Fridays are lower numbers), DVR Numbers and +7 numbers,DVD/Blu-Ray Sales,Production Costs, Cast Contracts/Availability, Syndication, online popularity such as streamed views and Torrents etc.
    5) Shows still might not get renewed despite good numbers due eg a show coming to an end of run eg Fringe is in it's finale season no matter what the ratings are etc or could be due to key cast wanting to leave after their contracts have expired. An example might be Supernatural if it’s two leads, Jared and Jensen wanted out, would Supernatural be renewed even if it had good numbers but no leads for the new season? etc
    6) Shows that have been renewed for a New Season are marked in Blue
    7) Shows with an Index over 2.75 are likely to be cancelled, 2.50-2.75 - in danger and less that 2.50 safe. Although shows nearer 2.50 are more in danger than a show with a lower index.

    After dating for more than two years, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough have decided to take a break and are living apart, sources close to the couple confirm to PEOPLE.

    The sources maintain that busy work schedules proved to be a great challenge for them both, although they are still in regular contact and remain friends.

    Reps for Hough and Seacrest declined to comment.

    The American Idol host and media mogul, 38, and former Dancing with the Stars pro and actress, 24, have spoken candidly in the past about juggling career and a relationship.

    "It's a hard thing to do, especially when you're so caught up in your work and bettering yourself," Hough recently told PARADE. "I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what's really important."

    After ringing in the new year, the duo enjoyed a romantic getaway in St. Bart's days later.

    Likability, well on its way to becoming a dirty word, is on everyone’s lips these days: Why aren’t Anne Hathaway and Taylor Swift likable? Why are Jennifer Lawrence and Mila Kunis? What does it matter if Hannah Horvath or Amy Jellicoe is unlikable, so long as they are interesting? Why are women, both real and fictional, constantly being assessed for likability while men doing similar things get a pass? And what is with our current, not gender-specific cultural obsession with the unlikable anyway? And with making the unlikable lovable?

    Into this minefield soldiers the formidable Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell), the star of FX’s great “The Americans,” a woman who is colder, fiercer, more aggressive and more zealous than any other on TV and the only one of whom is a devout Communist spy. In the most recent episode, Elizabeth sat on a bench with her handler, a woman (Margo Martindale) whom she had beaten senseless just days before, rigid with unforgiveness. “I’m sorry I didn’t kill you. That’s my apology,” Elizabeth snapped. Elizabeth detests vulnerability and loss of control. She’s furious and uptight. When she’s hurt, she lashes out, both physically and emotionally. She is a high-level, ideologically dedicated asset of the USSR and yet, despite this, she — unlike many of the law-abiding, vulnerable, loquacious, malleable women she shares a medium with — is a magnet for my sympathy and decidedly not a magnet for hundreds of pieces about how detestable she is. What is going on here?

    Russell was cast against type in this role. As the star of “Felicity,” she was a warm, searching, well-intentioned, sweater-wearing co-ed. It seems like there are not enough sweaters in the world to keep Elizabeth warm. But traces of Felicity Porter are innate to Russell — or rather, Russell’s gestalt was innate to Felicity Porter. No matter who Russell plays — however tamped down or effusive she becomes, how cruel or concerned she is, whether she’s dealing with KGB agents or Ben and Noel — she vibrates, at a very low frequency, with concern and vulnerability. Even Felicity was never carefree. As tough and accomplished as Elizabeth is, she is perpetually burdened. She worries for her country, for her children, for their safety. Every night, unlike her husband Phil, she goes to sleep futilely wishing to wake free of worry. A hairline crack of anxiety runs though Russell’s Elizabeth, and it keeps her from being either a robot or a triumphalist.

    In its short run, “The Americans” has been spectacular about gender and sexual power dynamics, and specifically about the power, and also debasement, that comes in using oneself, or being used, as a sexual weapon. We learned in the first episode that Elizabeth was raped by one of her training officers, a fact that did not turn her against the KGB but which did shut her down emotionally, with long-term ramifications on her marriage and her ability to think of her body as a tool (and, also, on our sympathy for her). Elizabeth, along with her husband Phillip and Nina, a Russian office worker who has been turned into an FBI asset, regularly uses herself as a honey-pot. That’s how we see Elizabeth in the very first scene of the very first episode — seducing a source in a cheap blonde wig and then later removing it in the car, tired, dirty, angry.

    Elizabeth’s willingness to use her body, her almost-but-not-quite complete numbness to it as an aspect of the job, speaks to her freakish competence (also to some unhealthy compartmentalization). Competence is, to my mind, one of the X factors of the TV likability debate: Where competence can be found, hatred hides. Elizabeth’s most obvious peer is “Homeland’s” Carrie Matthison, who is much more unhinged and volatile — all fire to Elizabeth’s ice — but similarly consumed with cause-and-effectiveness. “Scandal’s” Olivia Pope, a workplace savant, and “Parks and Recreations’” implacable, adorable Leslie Knope are also both supremely capable and have largely side-stepped the likability trap.

    In comparison to these women, the more controversial Hannah Horvath, her friends and “New Girl’s” Jess Day are lost whippoorwills. They are barely competent at the basic tasks of living, let alone at their jobs, which they mostly don’t have. “Enlightened’s” Amy Jellicoe has been more successful, but she’s done it the hard way: No one on television makes the basic act of getting through the day look more fraught. And though Amy ultimately triumphed in “Enlightened’s” just-finished season, it felt against the odds: Only after she brought Abaddon down did it seem possible that she could do so.

    But Elizabeth, Carrie and Olivia — like “Alias’s” Sydney Bristow and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s” Buffy — have more than competence on their side: They also have plot.“The Americans,” “Homeland,” “Buffy,” “Alias,” even “Scandal” are all action shows — chasing bad guys and good guys, completing missions, cracking cases, spying, stalking and staking are all regular occurrences. The characters’ psychology matters, but for long stretches it comes second to story.

    So although these women are literally the ball-busters of television — the ones visibly, often physically, upsetting and destabilizing the status quo — they are also the ones obeying a rule of TV: do high-stakes stuff. It’s the sloppy, less fantastical characters, the ones regularly flouting that TV rule, who have viewers in paroxysms of irritation: Why should we be wasting our time watching these regular-grade messed-up women? (Related: The only women who come in for it more regularly than twentysomething navel-gazers are the ones, like Skyler on “Breaking Bad” or Carmela on “The Sopranos,” who seemed to be “interfering” with the action.) This is an odd reversal on how these two types of women are greeted in real life. Intimidating, successful, original figures like Hillary Clinton and the real-life Lena Dunham make everyone crazy, while the girl who just got out of her PJs in Brooklyn gets a smile if she gets any notice at all. Context determines harmlessness.

    Elizabeth Jennings is fearsome and unforgiving and emotionally fakakte — and she is enthralling because she is those things. On paper, there is no one less “likable” than her, a woman who is trying to bring down the American government, who can barely tell her husband she misses him, who doesn’t like ice cream, who holds a grudge forever, who is scary and violent and thinks you, watching TV from the comfort of your American living room, are weak and spoiled and soulless. But through an alchemy of acting and writing and plot, she’s got my sympathy. How does that song go? What’s like got to do with it?

    Tom Hooper may direct the Freddie Mercury movie.

    From "One Day More" to "One Year of Love"? According to Mike Fleming at Deadline.com, "Les Miserables" director Tom Hooper is kicking the tires on the long gestating Freddie Mercury biopic that has Sacha Baron Cohen attached to star. Hooper and Mercury worked together on "Les Miserables" last year and the director had high praise for Cohen's performance.

    "Sacha, you know, he's got to be one of the best comedians on the planet," Hooper told HuffPost Entertainment about Cohen, who played Thénardier in "Les Mis." "He's also proven that he's got tremendous acting ability. There are moments in 'Bruno' that have incredible humanity. He was my first choice. Working with him, I was incredibly impressed at the rigor of his comedy. There's a lot of hard work that goes behind being funny that people don't think of, because they just think these funny guys just sort of turn up. Sacha is naturally funny, but there's a lot of discipline and forethought that goes into something like the 'Master of the House' sequence that obviously was really cool to see."

    Cohen was first attached to the Freddie Mercury movie in 2010, but the project was caught up in "contractual things," according to Queen guitarist Brian May.

    "The pieces are all falling into place, though we are now on a slightly later schedule -- filming is now scheduled to start in the Spring, with Sacha Baron Cohen playing Freddie," May wrote back in October of 2012. "The film should be ready for release early in 2014."

    In which Tom Hooper drools over Sacha Baron Cohen throughout the whole article.
