    Dame Helen Mirren has said that if she had children, the first words she would have taught a daughter would be ‘f*** off’ – after she endured years of sexism during her early career.

    In an interview with Mail on Sunday Event magazine, the 67-year-old Oscar-winning actress gives a candid account of how women were mistreated in the entertainment industry and how disgraced Jimmy Savile ‘could get away with anything’ during his time at the BBC.

    She says: ‘If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been “f*** off” because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we?

    ‘And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence to say, “No, f*** off, leave me alone, thank you very much.”

    'You see, I couldn’t help saying “Thank you very much”, I just couldn’t help myself.’

    Dame Helen – whose credits range from her role in The Queen in 2006, which earned her a Bafta and an Academy Award, to policewoman DI Jane Tennison in the TV crime drama Prime Suspect – says actresses have always had to work harder to be accepted.

    She adds: ‘The 60s were not great, the 70s were really crap; the 60s and 70s were pretty ghastly, I think.

    'And into the 80s, as an actress, you would be the only female on set, apart from the continuity person, who was always a woman, and maybe your own personal wardrobe person.

    'Otherwise it was completely male, and a particular kind of testosteroney male that was quite hard to deal with.

    Family members of "America's Next Top Model" finalist Renee Alway are deeply concerned the model's in too deep with drugs -- now they want to recruit the big guns to help, like Dr. Drew or Oprah.

    TMZ broke the story ... Renee was arrested last month for attempted burglary -- after cops say she was hiding out in a Palm Springs home that wasn't hers. They also say she had a gun and charged her with possession of narcotics.

    We spoke to Renee's sister who tells us ... Renee has a serious drug problem and can no longer take care of herself. She says she's homeless and the night she was arrested she was in "survival mode."

    Renee's mother tells us ... the model's substance abuse has gotten so bad, they had to cut her off. "We stopped giving her money, which was feeding her drug problem."

    Now the family just wants to see Renee get better, and say they need the best of the best to make that happen. Her sister says, "I am trying to find her some professional help. I would like to get her help from Dr. Drew, Dr. Phil or even Oprah."

    Renee is currently behind bars at a correctional facility in Banning.

    We really want to get her professional help... but you know televised. For real though I hope that her kids are okay. None of these articles ever mention them. She was pregnant a few months ago.

    "Thank you for supporting and loving us. Even when our storylines and acting suck, you still love us..."-Ian said at the end.

    hahah bless

    He and Paul carried this whole panel.

    4:48 p.m. We're running a bit late and the panel started with a long series recap.
    4:48 p.m. Our panel includes Kat Graham, Ian Somerhalder (lots of Damon fans), co-creator Julie Plec, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley (fewer Stefan fans than Damon fans these days), producer Caroline Dries and Candice Accola.
    4:51 p.m. Do Elena and Damon have any chance of happiness? "I don't think anyone on the show gets to live happily ever after," Welsey says. Julie Plec says that this year, they're going to try to keep Damon and Elena happy, at least for a little while. "We'll see how well we do with that," she says. "I thought they were joking. Damon never gets the girl... You've got that whole thing. You've got that James Dean-y..." Somehalder says of discovering that Damon was Elena's choice. "Dude, Don't downplay the sexy blue eyes," Wesley replies. "But it is Mystic Falls and essentially you can't be that happy for that long," Somerhalder says, describing his interaction with Elena as "sweet." "Enjoy, buddy. I did it for three years and it gets exhausting. I'm so glad to be playing Silas. I'm so glad I didn't get the girl," Wesley tells Somerhalder, emphasizing he's kidding.
    4:55 p.m. "You actually told me early on and swore me to secrecy," Wesley says of learning that he was going to be playing evil. He's glad he gets to play dark without repeating the Ripper Years. They all agree, however, that they wish they could say "Ripper" like Joseph Morgan.
    4:56 p.m. They were shooting until early this morning and there was a lot of blood and Somerhalder still has fake blood on her arm. He hasn't cleaned off. Nina has cleaned off, but she says she thought about trying to go through security covered in blood.
    4:56 p.m. Julie Plec suggests that Silas may be supplanted by a Bigger Bad at some point. "What? There's nobody badder!" Wesley says. "This is incredible. It never ends. Just when you think you're at the top of the food chain.
    4:57 p.m. "She's going to be lost and weak and insecure," Dobrev says of how Katherine is going to handle being human. Apparently this will include Katherine getting her first cold and dealing with "green phlegm." This is a major plotpoint of the early season? Green phlegm. "Katherine's just the best vampire and worst human," Dries says.
    4:58 p.m. Elena is going to be going to college? Apparently? "Why are we pursing higher education? We're all murderers. We can steal whatever we want. Why are we studying?" Wesley says. Dobrev wants to know what they're studying, but Plec insists that vampires don't need to worry about logistics.
    5:00 p.m. Caroline wants to get Tyler to college so that they can be together. The crowd, however, seems to miss Klaus. "I really love going into Season 5 with this really fun energy and the idea of these vampire girls trying to get by in the human world," Accola says, teasing that there are "plenty of friends" to be made at college, which could include men. "It's the first time in CW history that there will be attractive men on a series," Accola teases.
    5:01 p.m. What's up with Bonnie next season? Well, she's dead. And the only person she can communicate with is Jeremy. Graham knows that people like "Beremy." Sigh. "We'll see how long she can keep the secret for if at all," Graham. "To have only one person that you can connect with, it forces a sort of intimacy that we haven't had before and I think it'll be really interesting to see that evolve," Graham says. "For her, it was the same thing she's been doing the entire time," Plec says of Bonnie's ongoing sacrifices. "Seeing her come to terms with the loss of her own life will be part of her emotionally journey as well," Plec warns.
    5:04 p.m. Plec says that Jeremy's resurrection is dealt with at the very beginning of the season and includes a lot of coaching from Elena.
    5:04 p.m. Damon and Jeremy are apparently roomies as we start the season. "It's Damon's tutelage. It's the only way to learn," Somerhalder says.
    5:06 p.m. How will the consumption of the cure impact things? "If I had to say the word 'cure' one more time, I was going to jump off of our stage building," Somerhalder says. "And I love the band!"
    5:06 p.m. We're going to learn what made Silas like he is. Of course we are. Flashbacks!
    5:07 p.m. Does Nina think it's unfair that they gave the cure to somebody who wouldn't appreciate it? "In the end, Katherine was such a nuisance and Elena just wanted to get the ultimate revenge and make her powerless," Dobrev says. Ha. That question was from somebody who's Team Katherine. Can I be Team Katherine? I didn't know there was one.
    5:08 p.m. Brazilian fan wants to rave about Nina's performance last season, particularly fighting herself. "It's crazy, but so much fun, especially in the finale, it felt kinda like an action movie," Dobrev says, praising great crew members for keeping her energy up.
    5:09 p.m. Do they think there will ever be a "Vampire Diaries" movie? They insist that they've been approaching every episode like a movie. "We give it everything we have," Plec says. This season's 11th episode will be the show's 100th episode. "If I even breathe a word of it, it would be such a spoiler," Plec says of that milestone episode. "As long as we get cake," Nina says. "It's going to be a nude, musical episode," Somerhalder says. The crowd approves.
    5:12 p.m. Does Dobrev prefer playing Katherine or Elena? "I love them for different reasons and I hate them for different reasons. I love them both," Dobrev says. Katherine requires more hair and makeup time. "She wears too much makeup," Dobrev says. "But she's hot," Somerhalder responds.
    5:13 p.m. Will Klaus be coming back? "Klaus went and got his own damn show and left us high and dry," Somerhalder says. "Never say never, I would say. He's going to have his hands full in New Orleans. The question is whether Caroline will have her hands full with Klaus in New Orleans," Plec teases.
    5:14 p.m. With Bonnie on The Other Side, we'll get to see what The Other Side looks like. Lots of banter between Wesley and Somerhalder about reenacting the "Unchained Melody" scene from "Ghost." "I'll hold your clay," Wesley says out of context.
    5:15 p.m. A questioner is letting her 10-year-old sister watch the show.. The questioner has decided her sister can't date until she's in college. Wesley and Somerhalder agree that the sister should be allowed to date at a younger age to get experiences. Dobrev agrees that Elena would think the sister should date. This is... strange.
    5:18 p.m. Will the the Tatia storyline be expanded? "Not at the moment, but it's something that exists very deeply in our mythology," Plec says. The challenge is that it involves backstory for characters who are no longer with us.
    5:18 p.m. If they could bring back any character from the dead, who would it be? Most people seem to agree that Alaric is the answer, though Graham wants Grams back. "We're all dead," Somerhalder notes. "And a lot of people are coming back," Dobrev says. Wesley, however, thinks that people are done coming back from The Other Side because the door is closed. He's wrong. And witches can have sex on The Other Side. Now you know.
    5:19 p.m. Only one more question. If they had to choose from everyone on the show who to kill off, who would it be? "You are awesome," Somehalder says. "Kill Damon. He'll go to the Caribbean," Somerhalder insists. But nobody actually answers. "I think we all love each other. We just want to sit in a big group and sing 'Kumbaya,'" Somerhalder says. "I would kill someone on the show. I'm not gonna tell you guys who," Wesley says. "Yeah, I would," Dobrev agrees. "The 'Vampire Diaries' panel ends on a very somber, sick note," Somerhalder says.
    5:21 p.m. Instead, Somerhalder opts to end on a sentimental note. He says it's humbling and scary how big the crowd is. "Thank you for supporting and loving us. Even when our storylines and acting suck..." Somerhalder cracks. They all love each other and they made yearbooks last year. They all thank us.

    And a pretty good one from IGN - Can't embed it though, so HERE YOU GO --> Has Chris/Scarlett, followed by Sebastian, followed by Emily.

    And since the panel video obviously doesn't have the teaser, here's a nice little recap for you.

    We saw a ton of footage from this film, which really backed up the idea that it's a paranoid spy thriller as well as just a fun superhero action movie.

    We saw a complete scene, which was very reminiscent of one of the best moments from Drive. Captain America gets into an elevator at SHIELD headquarters, and then Crossbones (Frank Grillo) gets in with him, with a couple of other guys, all heading for Operations. They're talking about spy stuff, but Cap notices they have their guns out. And then a bunch of guys in suits get in, heading for Operations. And there's something hinky about them, too. Someone says "**** you contract," randomly.

    Even more guys get into the elevator and say "Records." And then Cap is surrounded by a ton of guys. In a small glass elevator. He's massively outnumbered in a tiny space.

    Cap says, "Before we get started, does anyone want to get out?" Nobody does. They attack, and he hits emergency stop, and all of these guys are trying to kill him at once. There's a wristband which is magnetized, and it gets attached to the wall of the elevator, and then Cap's wrist is stuck in it so he's fighting with one hand trapped. He basically kicks the hell out of all these guys, using their own weapons against them. It's amazing. Eventually Captain America gets his wrist free so he can fight two-handed.

    At last, it's just Cap and Crossbones, who says "it's nothing personal." He tases Cap over and over again, and Cap just keeps coming. Cap throws him into the ceiling. Cap is standing in the elevator, surrounded by prone bodies and broken glass, and he reaches down to grab his shield, with a loud clang.

    We also saw lots of other footage, in which Cap and Black Widow go into an ancient SHIELD headquarters, digging for old secrets. Robert Redford, as Alexander Pierce, is telling Steve Rogers that SHIELD wants to protect people, but sometimes building a better world means tearing the old world down. And SHIELD has enemies. "You know how the world works," he says.

    We see Scarlett Johanson standing in a graveyard looking sad. We also see Anthony Mackie, as the Falcon, riding in a car.

    The latter part of this footage involves showing a lot of super insane SHIELD hardware, including jumpjets, the Helicarrier and various other massive vehicles, while Nick Fury and Captain America debate spy ethics. Fury says "I've neutralized lot of threats before they even happened." Cap responds, "I thought the punishment usually came after the crime.""SHIELD takes the world as it is, not as we'd like it to be," says Fury. "This isn't freedom," Cap says. "This is fear." And Fury tells Cap to keep his eyes open.

    We see Cap jumping out of a jet and fighting and lots of stuff blowing up, and Black Widow kicking pretty much all the ass, and abseiling into a super tall structure, shooting in all directions as she goes. We see a bus exploding and another shot of a graveyard. And more awesome fight scenes, that we just caught a glimpse of.

    The Falcon flies into an aircraft carrier while being chased by multiple jets. Captain America is on a motorcycle flying, and there is tons of kickfighitng. And then we saw what looked like the SHIELD helicarrier blowing up and crashing into the river.

    And then we see the Winter Soldier, formerly known as Cap's sidekick Bucky, reach down and pick up Captain America's tarnished, burnt shield, and look at the camera with his gaze especially intense in black smeary eye makeup.

    Brace yourselves, Marshmallows -- Kristen Bell is already beginning speculation that "Veronica Mars" could exist beyond the 2014 Kickstarter-funded film.

    In an interview with CNN while at Comic-Con, Bell admits that she hopes it isn't one-and-done with the franchise's foray into film. "This could be my whole life," she says. "And by the way, what a lucky life it would be if it were. There's no formula for it, because it just has never been done before. Except -- and I'm just throwing it out there -- 'Star Trek' did it. They did a TV show and then nine movies. Who knows? Why can't we make a couple films? Or continue to produce content of 'Veronica Mars?'"

    Bell admits that her current gig with Showtime's "House of Lies" would make things difficult for the show to return to television, saying, "It gets tricky because television contracts legally only allow you to do one episode of a different show. They purchase you. I am not the face of 'House of Lies.' So the only way I would be able to reprise Veronica Mars (on TV) is in movie form."

    When asked whether Netflix could be a viable option to maneuver around the contract legalese, Bell admits, "There are some loopholes that we are already investigating."

    The actress says that she hopes her film's success with Kickstarter can open the door for other canceled shows with fervent fan bases to make a comeback. "The way I see it is that Kickstarter is the best example of 'power to the people,'" she says. If the people want it, the people can make it. That's the beauty behind a public funding forum. I hope it opens up a lot of doors for fan bases that don't feel heard with the content they would like to see, but I don't think it will put the studio system out of business. I don't think it's the end result for everybody, but I really like the fact that the fans are my boss."


    They are really going for it. Get that Netflix show!

    Also, Jason Dohring gives a hint as to what is up with Logan in the film and gets emotional with Percy Daggs III when discussing the experience.

    The praise for “Scandal” is at an all-time high. Gladiators are eagerly awaiting the start of the third season of the hit show, which debuts in October. The lead actress, Kerry Washington was just nominated for an Emmy Award, becoming the first black actress to earn a nomination for Best Leading Actress in a Drama series in eighteen years. Fans of Olivia’s signature style have something to cheer about too: a clothing line inspired by the show may be in the works.

    The wardrobe stylist responsible for Olivia’s winter white duds spoke with Fashionista.com about the possibility of a “Scandal” clothing line:

    “We’ve been talking about how we could create something aspirational for the audience–like, something that Olivia Pope might wear–but not so aspirational that it was out of reach for most of our gladiators,” she said. “We’re just throwing around ideas with several different people, and getting a sense if we can do it and learning about the parameters. We’re trying to figure out how to do it so that it’s not too out of the price range that most people can afford, and yet somehow create something for people to have a piece of the Olivia Pope look.”

    Can you imagine snagging Olivia Pope-inspired white trench coats and navy peplum blazers at an affordable price? If the “Scandal” clothing line does indeed come to fruition, I’m sure many gladiators will line up to shop it. Are you excited about the possibility of a “Scandal” clothing line?


    The should be like Mad Men and do a capsule collection with Banana Republic, imo.

    MADONNA will take a grim journey to the funeral of one of her closest pals this week.
    The Material Girl was heartbroken when she heard her interior designer friend DAVID COLLINS had died – just three weeks after he was diagnosed with skin cancer.
    David designed the interiors of some of Madge’s favourite London haunts, including Claridge’s – as well as the inside of her homes. Madonna arrived in the UK on Friday – two days after David’s death – and walked through Heathrow airport dressed entirely in black.
    She’s planning to head to Ireland this week for Dubliner David’s funeral.
    A pal said: “Madonna is beside herself with grief.
    “David was one of her closest pals for years – she adored him.
    “They’d often have a laugh around London, driving around together. She can’t believe he died just three weeks after his diagnosis.”
    Madge’s last post on her Instagram account was a photo of red roses with the message: “In memory of David Collins.
    “He was a great talent and a good and loyal friend for 17 years! God bless him and may he RIP.”-Madonna

    Miley Cyrus wants you to know she doesn't have a care in the world, all she's worried about is her business. And, as a savvy businesswoman, she's letting you know that while flashing her washboard abs and underboob. Because Miley.

    Cyrus took to Twitter today to persuade more and more Smilers to follow her on the social network, promising that if she reaches 13 million followers (she's at 12.8 million at the moment) she will unveil her album title. Despite being one the world's biggest pop stars, Cyrus has been trying to reach 13 million for over a week now.

    The 20-year-old singer seems to be a big fan of the underboob lately, giving her fans (and innocent passersby) a glimpse of her ta tas on a regular basis.

    You be you, Miley!

    @MariahCarey: "Puppy therapy with The Reverend Pow Jackson."

    Mariah Carey continues to recover from a shoulder injury she suffered while on the set of her new music video earlier this month. Just days after being hospitazlied, she appeared at the MLB All-Star Charity Concert in New York looking and sounding great -- and quite stylish in a fashion-forward sling.

    On Monday, her husband, Nick Cannon, told CBSNews.com that Carey continues to feel better, but noted,"She still has a lot of nerve damage in her arm so she can't really move her arm all the way. So she's still in the sling. And she still has issues with her ribs and everything. But the doctors says a lot of rest and relaxation and she'll be back to normal in no time."

    Cannon said Carey, 43, is still working on her new album, too, noting: "That's her main focus right now."


    Tomorrow is the album's original release date...take your time Mimi...

    Can Deb ever forgive Dexter? "I don't think that you'll ever see Debra be with Dexter the way she did early in the series. She will never support or champion his Dark Passenger, but she will find a way to co-exist," the actress tells THR.

    Debra Morgan has hit her rock bottom.

    During Sunday's fourth episode of Dexter's eighth and final season, Jennifer Carpenter's beleaguered Deb, struggling with killing LaGuerta and El Guapo, attempted to take her own life -- and that of the man behind her problems: her foster brother, Dexter (Michael C. Hall).

    Still reeling from her role in two slayings, Deb learns the truth about Harry (James Remar): that her father killed himself after learning just how much his young foster son enjoyed killing people under the code he and Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) created. With Dexter along as her passenger, Deb -- having seemingly just said her last goodbye to Quinn (Desmond Harrington) -- drives their car into the water in a bold attempt to bring an end to Dexter's secret hobby and her conflicted role in his life.

    The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Carpenter to see where Deb -- and Dexter -- go from here.

    The Hollywood Reporter: What does Deb learn after trying to kill both herself and Dexter?
    Jennifer Carpenter:In the first four episodes of this season, Deb is searching for her bottom, and I think she's surprised to see just how low it actually is. She hits it when the car hits the water. When she looks back, she is able to see Dexter as this living, breathing person and it makes him real in that instant. It makes all of the other stuff secondary to that. As long as he is alive there is hope for if not a real brother-sister relationship, but at least an understanding, and there's hope for her having a real ally in her life. In that turn back to him in the car, she realizes that there aren't so many differences between their ugliness; that he's a little more developed and she's guilty of the things she hates him for, whether he led her down that path or not, she has a bloody hand in it.

    THR: How is this experience going to change her? Is this the first step toward forgiving Dex?
    Carpenter: It's like reading the last paragraph in a chapter of a book -- it gives her a start to a new one. I'm not sure that Deb actually has the foresight to or even the tools to plan for what that might look like. Dexter numbs her ability to make plans because he's forever changing the landscape of every situation. At the end of episode four, that repair certainly looks possible, not only with Dexter, but within herself. I think Deb is able to see him anew, not fresh and clean, and the slate certainly hasn't been wiped clean, but it's a possibility to change the picture drawn on it.

    THR: So almost like she accepts him for who and what he is?
    Carpenter: I'm not sure the car dropping in the water was like a baptism as much as it was like dunking his head in a toilet (laughs). It makes him be real with her and she'd be real with him; it's like they're actually just going to show up in the room together with all of their guts exposed and get real. What can they really do now about what's true? Where can they really move now that the truth is all out there? It's a way to squelch her emotions about him -- put the fires out and start doing damage recovery in order to rebuild.

    THR: How will Dr. Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) play into that?
    Carpenter: Vogel has the advantage -- at least from Deb's point of view -- because I imagine she looks like Deb's mother if she were alive. Little does Vogel know that that's a lottery ticket that she wins again and again with Deb. She's incredibly intelligent and manipulative in a way and has a way of sort of hypnotizing Deb into doing what she wants, which is in a strange way an invitation to stop it and take a different approach and slow her reaction time so that she can make better choices. I think that works to everyone's advantage, especially Debra's.

    THR: Is Deb's path toward redemption going to bring her closer to Dexter? Could we see her work with his Dark Passenger?
    Carpenter: I don't think that you'll ever see Debra be with Dexter the way she did early in the series. She will never support or champion his Dark Passenger, but she will find a way to co-exist. She has such a capacity for love that even on a bad day, she loves him more than anyone else could.

    THR: Vogel questions why Dexter allowed Deb to live after she learned of his true nature, breaking the first rule of the code. Should Deb trust her?
    Carpenter: Trust is too strong a word for what she feels for Vogel. It's like the building of any relationship: just because you've both got the cord in hand and you're considering plugging in, it doesn't necessarily mean you're allotted automatic trust or protection or love from the other. This is someone that was introduced to Debra through Dexter. She automatically has some reservations about investing in this woman; she's been dealing with post-traumatic stress, and like a lot of people in recovery, you latch on to what feels good at the moment and what feels like it's going to get you through your next day. Vogel seems to be fitting that bill and it's keeping her straight and feeling closer to something that used to feel like herself. She's feeling in control again.

    THR: Deb has now killed twice on the series, El Guapo and LaGuerta. Could we see her develop her own version of a Dark Passenger?
    Carpenter: No. If you hold Dexter and Deb up to one another and see if they could possibly be stencils to the other, they're like cardboard cutouts of the other's danger. That's the beauty of this show: They live on opposite ends of the spectrum and it's jarring when you find pieces of each other's puzzle that look like they might fit. But that's all they are, pieces of a puzzle of a much larger map.

    THR: Deb doesn't seem to care if she lives or dies. Does this make Hannah McKay (Yvonne Strahovski) more of a threat to her?
    Carpenter: The thing that remains after the accident is what you saw in the first episode and what you got a glimpse of before Deb pulls the car in the water: She doesn't care. I think "I don't care" might be her mantra. If she cared a little less maybe she'd survive with a little more ease. She's accepting the idea that she will never have all the information about Dexter. So when Hannah comes back into the picture, it will be about correcting information and then deciding which route has a little less pain and the least amount of destruction. As we filmed the final episode, I was still deciding what Hannah represented to Debra. This is when I got scared about the series ending; thinking about scenes that Hannah and Deb have played together -- I wanted to go back and either fight for another angle, another course of action or play something differently, like that bitch is going to haunt me for a long time.

    THR: Knowing how Deb's story ends, are you happy with her ultimate fate?
    Carpenter: When I got the final script I e-mailed [showrunner] Scott Buck and said that it was luminous. I was grateful that he put so much in my hands. I'm happy with how every storyline ends. The season got off to an incredible start, so hopefully everybody will stick around for this incredible ending that we're giving in twelve.

    THR: Looking back over the eight seasons, how many F-bombs do you think Deb has dropped during Dexter's eight-season run?
    Carpenter: I don't know; I hope some really awesome fan figures it out, but I mean, thousands and thousands. Oh God, I need to go start saying Hail Mary's or something.


    love her!!!!!!!!!!! Deb is the queen of the show, it is known

    to all those dissing her acting and saying she doesn't deserve an Emmy...

    It was in May when we reported that CBS had passed on the Beverly Hills Cop TV series adaptation, which Brandon T. Jackson was to star in as Axel Foley's (Eddie Murphy's) son.

    I believe many of us foolishly thought the series was a lock for a pick-up, given the brand, and who was involved (notably Shawn Ryan and Eddie Murphy), as well as the fact that there was some serious competition from all 4 major networks for the series last year, with CBS emerging the winner of this new Beverly Hills Cop series. And it is in part due to that interest in the project from all 4 major networks, that it was also reported that the series wasn't entirely dead, and there was the possibility that it could end up on another network.

    Skip ahead a couple of months to this past weekend when Ryan, who was to serve as showrunner, if CBS picked it up, posted the following to Twitter:

    Sad to report that efforts to land Beverly Hills Cop pilot at another network have failed. This iteration is dead for now. (Cont...)

    But then, maybe more interestingly, he added the following:

    Good news for fans of franchise is that the pilot tested so well, it has caused Paramount to put another #BHC movie into development.

    So, the TV series is dead, but the pilot tested very well that Paramount believes another Beverly Hills Cop movie would be a good idea, and have begun development on one.

    How do you guys feel about that?

    What I find interesting about this revelation is that, if the pilot tested as well as Ryan says it did, why did CBS pass on it, and why did no other network want it? What am I missing here? Is it that none of them could squeeze it into their lineups? But, again, if it tested so very well, you'd think they'd all be clamoring to get their hands on it, and make it fit somewhere in their schedules.

    I'd love to see the pilot episode.

    Described as an hour-long crime procedural with strong comedic elements, the TV series was to have a similar fish-out-of-water setup as the film, and would center on Axel Foley’s son, Aaron, a blue-collar police officer, trying to make a name for himself, absent of his prominent father's influence, and the criminals among the rich and famous in Beverly Hills he helps eliminate.

    As for a 4th Beverly Hills Cop movie. You might remember that, last October, Eddie Murphy had pretty much buried the idea of a 4th movie, when he told Rolling Stone magazine in an interview that "none of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn't be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong."

    In that same conversation, Eddie did add that, he was more interested in adapting the movie to TV, as a drama series.

    So whether or not he'd be a major part of another movie remains to be seen.

    The 3 films in the film franchise (which started out strong, but got successively worse) grossed over $735 million worldwide, and the first film was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in 1985. It was also Murphy's first full-fledged starring vehicle.


    I'm not sure how to feel about the rumours now that two networks have passed on it.

    She started her career as a redhead despite being a natural blonde.
    But after returning to rouge at the end of the last month, Emma Stone looks like she has well and truly settled back into what is fast becoming her trademark colour.

    Smiling broadly the 24-year-old showed off her porcelain like skin as she watched Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band perform in France alongside her boyfriend Andrew Garfield.

    Clearly enjoying the occasion Emma smiled as she chatted away to her boyfriend and Spiderman co-star Andrew Garfield who wore a checked shirt.

    Emma was recently announced as the leading lady in Woody Allen’s latest feature which will shoot in France.

    The comedy will also star Colin Firth, who showed off his incredibly slimmed down figure as he too came to support Woody.


    so happy she's back red, she just needs to put on some.

    rowland23f-5-webDestiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland proved to be a survivor on the high seas.

    The newly minted "X-Factor" judge and a half dozen companions were lost at sea for 12 hours Friday after the captain of their charter boat ride from Provincetown, Mass., became disoriented in choppy weather, The Cape Cod Times first reported.

    “It was pretty rocky out there, from what they told me,” Noah Santos, the captain of the towboat dispatched to bring the lost craft back to shore, told the News.

    “They were just a little shaken up. They were okay, though, and just very happy to see [my boat.].”

    Rowland’s party had set sale Friday morning on a private whale watching expedition when the ship got lost in the fog and 5-foot waves roughly 30 miles off shore, Santos said.
    After the Harbor Master realized the boat was late in returning, the Coast Guard was notified and triangulated the position of the missing vessel.

    Santos, captain of TowBoat U.S., was then dispatched to tow the charter boat back.

    Though Rowland and her fellow passengers were too tired to talk much after arriving back on dry land at 11 p.m., the “Sail On” singer did get a chance to thank her rescuer the following evening.

    “I ran into her the next day while I was out at dinner with my wife and she bought us dinner,” says Santos. “She told me I was her hero.

    Rita Moreno will receive SAG-AFTRA's Life Achievement Award at the 2014 SAG Awards, the union announced today.

    Moreno, 81, will be the 50th recipient of the award designed to recognize career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment.

    The honor is given annually to an actor who fosters the "finest ideals of the acting profession."

    Ken Howard, SAG-AFTRA co-president said of Moreno in a statement: "She is an extraordinarily versatile, talented and generous actor whose career is notable for its courageous choices and for the breadth, depth and quality of her many demanding and commanding roles. She is a magnificent actor, and I am honored to join all SAG-AFTRA members in recognizing the incomparable Rita Moreno."

    Roberta Reardon, SAG-AFTRA co-president added in a statement, "No one is more deserving of this honor than the fabulous and accomplished Rita Moreno, an iconic talent whose excellent work includes hit movies, highly-rated television series, landmark public television programs and award-winning recordings. She is emblematic of the broad reach and diverse coverage of our new, merged union. She is an inspiration in every effort, but never more so than with her civil rights activism, promoting equality and diversity while ushering in a more representative depiction of the American scene on screen."

    The Puerto Rico-born Moreno won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Anita in the 1961 movie West Side Story. She's also won two Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the National Medal of the Arts. She also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1995.

    She's one of just 11 artists and the only Hispanic performer to get the coveted E.G.O.T. combination of an Emmy, Oscar, Grammy and Tony.

    She also starred in the long-running PBS children's series The Electric Company. More recently, she's had roles in the TV series Oz and TV Land's Happily Divorced in which she plays the mother of Fran Drescher's character.
    The 20th Annual SAG Awards will be broadcast live on TNT and TBS on January 18, 2014.
