    Hollywood has lost a true "Scream Queen."

    E! News can confirm actress Marilyn Burns passed away Tuesday. She was 65.

    "She was found unresponsive by a family member this morning in her Houston, TX area home," her rep said in a statement to E! News. "Her family asks for privacy at this time. Further details will be released later."

    Burns played Sally Hardesty in the 1974 horror film, Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Her character was one of the lucky ones who survived the horrific chain of events caused by Leatherface.

    She went on to appear in other horror films including Eaten Alive, as well as the TV mini-series Helter Skelter.

    Burns would also make brief cameos in the 1994 and 2013 reboots of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    A cause of death will not be announced until an autopsy is performed.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Burns' family.

    Last week Taylor Swift went to Central Park where she did a bunch of fun things, including helping this random girl off a rowboat (remember the tragic outfit from one of the TayTay walking posts?) … Well, Twitter is kinda neat because look, the girl’s friend uploaded the photo that was taken from the rowboat and now life has come full circle.

    And what happened when the girl mentioned to Taylor that she and here friends were going to Chipotle for lunch? Taylor gave the girl $90!

    Girls Night Out

    Rapper, singer, actor, awards-show host, Toronto Raptors ambassador… Drake holds nearly as many job titles as he does house parties. But one we’d be foolish to overlook is talent scout.
    The man himself is a more superior spitter than balladeer, but his track record for pinching young fresh voices out of the Greater Toronto Area and giving them a push under his October’s Very Own umbrella has been impeccable. Turns out, The Weeknd is no anomaly.

    Within a span of days, both PartyNextDoor (PartyNextDoor Two) and Majid Jordan (A Place Like This EP) dropped sophomore releases that smartly showcase their respective talents in tight running time and without the distraction of featured artists. To the unfamiliar, one act sounds like it’s a group but is a soloist; the other sounds like a solo artist but is a group. And, much like The Weeknd, background info and interviews from these new artists is scarce. There is power in the enigmatic, OVO teaches us.

    PartyNextDoor is Jahron Anthony Brathwaite, a 21-year-old Mississauga dude cut from the Abel Tesfaye mold of Music-To-Drunk-Dial-To. Majid Jordan is the mashup of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, a Toronto production duo formerly known as Good People and best known for co-producing and handling the hook of a little ditty called “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”

    So how do you follow a double-platinum joint, one anointed by Pitchfork as 2013’s best single? By dropping five tracks of unfiltered deep-house seduction. The more romantic voice of OVO 2.0, MJ is all honeyed ecstasy. A Place Like This is what rose petals lapping a Jacuzzi would sound like if they could sing.

    A giant leap forward in sophistication from the duo’s first EP, Afterhours—released under the Good People moniker after meeting at University of Toronto—A Place Like This is bookended by its best tracks. “Forever” is a dreamy slice of optimism best served to a dance floor at 3 a.m. while the set’s title song and lead single/video connects on an ethereal plane, with its hypnotic refrain of “Uh-huh.”
    “Go on, take my hand/There’s nothing left to do,” goes the courtship. “Brings a tear to my eye when you remind me/How you came to my side and you stayed by me.” Consider the ladies won.

    More confused and way more interesting is the rough-around-the-edges writing of PartyNextDoor, whose music sounds like August Alsina’s might if he were trapped in a basement with DJ Screw, the Eurythmics and a two-month supply of cough syrup.
    Brathwaite, who produces as well, puts wonderful melody to his pain, but there is a harshness here that can’t be found in Majid Jordan’s work. By turns horny and tripping, hopeful and resentful, PartyNextDoor is in no rush to turn the lights out, content to drink in his pain until the wee hours. There is an unsettling wooziness that pervades the molasses beats, often muddied by scratches or static or cuss words or blame.
    “I got money/I don’t need a bitch,” PND deflects on “SLS.” But of course he does. Else we wouldn’t be here.
    If Majid Jordan is silk sheets on a king-size bed, PartyNextDoor is an afghan tossed on a futon. But to paraphrase Drake’s line on PND’s fantastic “Recognize,” both OVO acts are freaks. Now their cover’s blown.
    Both Majid Jordan and  Partynextdoor are great artists, love their newest releases.

    August 5th now marks Drake Day on ONTD. Shout out to everyone who made it happen. Show some more love for Wheelchair Jimmy in the comment section! Til next year.
    Happy Drake Day!

    I’ve given it five weeks, and I’m ready to call it: So far, this is the worst season of “Big Brother.”
    The summer reality staple has been around since 2000, and I’m both proud and ashamed to say I’ve seen virtually every episode.
    The competition, which secludes a group of strangers in a house and records their every move, is so trashy, it’s basically the Dumpster of modern television.
    The people are obnoxious, the challenges are stupid and every season at least one person runs around naked.
    In my book, those are all perfectly legitimate reasons to watch, especially that last one — these dudes are ripped.
    Unfortunately, while the 16th season of “Big Brother” is delivering on all of those fronts, it’s lacking the most necessary of elements: momentum.

    In order for the show to work, there need to be sides. People need to hate each other. We need villains. People need to want one another out of the house so bad they will do crazy, irrational things — scream, provoke, cry.
    This season, we’ve just got a group of largely mellow duds who all seem content working together as friends.
    Each week, the house as a whole targets one person and they pretty much unanimously vote them out. This is not interesting to watch, no matter how much the show’s editors attempt to manipulate it to look like there may be divisions.
    The problem boils down to the fact that there needs to be a power shift each week, when a new “Head of Household” is crowned.
    When that “HOH” competition comes at the end of each Thursday night episode, we should be on the edge of our seats to see who’s going to take power and switch up the game.

    Instead, I’m finding myself not caring in the least because they’re all going to do the same thing. It’s like betting on an elementary school talent show — someone’s going to win, but they’re still not going to get into Juilliard.
    That point is exacerbated by the addition of a new twist that crowns two HOHs each week, lowering the stakes. There’s no point in getting invested in who wins when one of them is just going to be deposed in the next episode.
    I can’t help but wonder if some of this lame-ness is due to the ultra-controversial season we saw last summer, where houseguests openly aired their racist and homophobic prejudices.
    After seeing that backlash, perhaps these contestants are even more concerned about the image they’re putting out there. (Except for New Yorker Victoria, who exists only to fill space and is as interesting as an empty shopping bag.)

    And the fellas aren’t doing a very good job of hiding their weird sexism — 4 out of 5 evictees thus far were women, and Caleb’s vindictive ousting of the uninterested Amber (or, as the show called it, a “nomance”),
    And may we never hear Cable’s oft-repeated description of himself, “beast mode cowboy,” uttered again.
    Of course, there are the usual problems of overtly scripted diary room segments — when the contestants go into a soundproof room to share their thoughts with the CBS cameras — and Julie Chen’s robotic hosting.
    And, of course, there’s the general cheese factor that permeates the whole shebang.
    One thing’s for sure: I don’t know how much longer I can stick around if this snore-fest continues.
    Oh, who am I kidding? As long as there are abs, I’m still going to watch.
    Let's be real, the show has been boring since Devin left.

    DC Comics has long specialized in parallel world stories, and as its universe of characters continues to expand into other media, the company's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns makes it clear that the film and television worlds will remain as separate as Earth-One and Earth-Two.
    CBR News joined a
    small group of journalists to fire off some questions for Johns about The CW network's DC series "The Flash," where he both addressed several aspects of the Scarlet Speedster's new show and the current proliferation of DC properties currently slated for television -- including the hit "Arrow" and forthcoming series "Gotham," "Constantine" and "iZombie" -- while also making it clear that audiences should never expect to see Ben Affleck's Dark Knight or Henry Cavill's Man of Steel make a guest shot on the small screen, nor will Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen or Grant Gustin's Barry Allen join the feature film's Justice League -- though each and every one of those characters remain fair game for fresh interpretation in each medium's "universe."
    Why do you think we're seeing all these comic book franchises come to TV right now?
    Geoff Johns: Well, first off, as fans, I think people love it. But also, it feels like there's a deeper engagement with this kind of material with people. They want to go beyond a TV show. They want to get in the mythology. There's just so many great shows like that, like "Game of Thrones," that just bring another level to television in a different way. And with the shows on now -- at DC, we love it when Marvel puts on more shows, because it's good for everybody when they're good and they do well. Same with their films. We love when Marvel puts on great films because it helps everyone in this business that wants to bring comic books to life. With the TV shows, the reason I think that Warner TV and DC and everyone has such a great season, again, is because of the diversity of the shows. "Gotham" is very different than &qu
    ot;The Flash," which is very different than "Constantine," which is very different than "iZombie," and then "Arrow" is very different from "Flash." We look at "Arrow," it's more on the Batman spectrum and "Flash" is more on the Superman spectrum. "Flash" is more bright and optimistic and hopeful, and "Arrow's" gritty and dark and intense and very grounded compared to "Flash." So as long as everything finds its own niche -- and that's what a successful character does in comics, same with a TV show -- and we don't get repetitive on what we do, there's room for everything.
    It seems like every network is looking for their own franchise to build on.
    Yeah -- my advice is, do something that's not already on.
    Are you focused on creating less of a chance of crossover and seeing the same characters in television and film?
    No. Not really. I mean, Flash has the best Rogues Gallery, beyond Batman and Spider-Man, in comic books, and we're going to explore that. From the Rogues to eventually a talking gorilla to time travelers. But really, it's a separate universe than film, so we can allow the best creative -- the filmmakers can do their best version. They want to tell the story that's best for film, while we do something different in a different corner of the DC Universe on television.
    So you don't want to integrate those two?
    No, we will not be integrating the film universe with the television universe.
    How about the TV shows?
    Well, "Arrow" and "Flash" absolutely live in the same universe. "Gotham" is set in the past, so it's a very different show. "Constantine" is in the supernatural world, whereas "Arrow" and "Flash" are kind of at the center and heart
    of the DC Universe. That's why you see characters like the Atom and Firestorm and others we're talking about right now… You'll see a lot of DC Universe characters. You won't see Batman. You won't see Superman. There are a lot of other characters that we aren't going to go to. We're in production on "Batman V. Superman," so you'll see characters like The Atom and Firestorm. We have plans for a lot of other ones, but right now, you will not see a Batman or a Superman in this one.
    What would you like to see for the next comic character or title be adapted for TV?
    I can't say, because we're trying to do it right now!
    All of DC's television shows will be pulling in different aspects of the comics as they continue to move forward
    Do you see the existing TV shows as always being able to incubate the next show?
    Some, yes. One of the great things about &
    quot;Smallville" was it had Green Arrow on it for so long that people just got familiar with the character. It was a totally different version, but that way, when we talk about Green Arrow, a lot of people knew about Green Arrow. So when we introduce a character like the Spectre in "Constantine," maybe it would be a spinoff, or maybe it's just to get more awareness for the character, and eventually, we'll do something else with the Spectre. The whole goal for us is to take the opportunity working with these great writers and producers in the studio and getting as many of our characters out there in the best way we can. The reason that "Flash" is so true to DC lore is because everyone working on it loves it. And you can tell when people don't love it. Captain Cold's on my door at the office -- like, literally like 12 feet tall, printed on my door -- and when people come in and say 'Oh, Mr. Freeze!' then I know they're not a
    real fan.
    How do you balance the integrity of the character's canon with tweaking it for a more modern audience?
    Well, you want to stay true to the DNA of the character. "Arrow" took a cue from this writer Andy Diggle and the artist Jock from this comic book "Green Arrow: Year One" that explored his time on the island. In the comic book, originally, his time on the island was two panels. And in the comics, Flash's origin, he was in a lab and a lightning bolt hit him and that was it. There was no real backstory. So we knew that Flash had to get struck by lightning in a lab, but we added so much more to the backstory of S.T.A.R. Labs, and that allowed us to create a world. It's a tricky thing. The guys who did "Captain America" said something in an interview that I thought was really smart. It's like a piano -- when you hit a note, and it's out of tune, you kind of just know. And so that's why yo
    u've got to work with people who love it, because they know.
    Are you worried about an oversaturation of comic book shows on TV?
    As long as they're good, no!
    Is there another specific corner of the DC Universe -- like placing supernatural characters like Constantine in their own sub-franchise -- that you want to land somewhere else?
    There are, yes. We're working on a bunch of stuff right now that I can't really get into. And it's not just DC -- it's Vertigo. It's "Mad."… We have so many different comics that aren't just superheroes, and that's what we're working on right now. "iZombie's" a Vertigo book that people probably hadn't heard of before the show. It's a great book, and it's going to be a great show.
    Considering the number of your shows, was that a corporate decision?
    Well, since Kevin Tsujihara took over w
    ith Warner Bros. -- he's a huge DC fan, too. His favorite character is Solomon Grundy! He really knows his stuff, and he knows the value of it. All it really takes is people like Kevin and Peter Roth and Diane [Nelson], our president, to really love the characters and support all that. But it came about because everyone was behind DC, and you had great creators on it. Bruno Heller on "Gotham" -- that's A+. So as long as we have the best creators and the best studio -- like, Warner TV is probably the best television studio. I don't think anyone can argue that at all, and there's a reason for that. You have to combine that power with the DC characters and brand and this is what happens.
    What have you seen about what can go wrong with some of the comic book TV shows that have come before?
    Well, some of the shows -- from since I was a kid, I think everyone's seen them go wrong -- they don't embrace what works about the
    character. And it's not that their cape's a certain length or their boots a certain color. It's why these characters have endured for 75 years. When they don't capture that, it doesn't work.
    Can you talk about taking some of the elements that work in the TV shows and integrating them back into the comic books? Like how the "Green Arrow" comic recently shifted a little to reflect successful aspects of the TV show.
    Well, when they introduce a great character like John Diggle, for example -- an amazing character on the "Arrow" show -- and Green Arrow doesn't have a huge supporting cast in the comic book, it made sense to just bring that character over. We've got Ben Sokolwolski and Andrew Kreisberg taking over the comic book this October, and they're going to incorporate some of that stuff into "Green Arrow" but also stay true to the comics. It's a nice cycle.
    You wouldn&#
    39;t let the word "crisis" get into the "Flash" pilot casually, would you?
    No. We purposely put the word "crisis" in there. For those who don't know, "Crisis" was a series from the '80s. Barry Allen was a big part of that. He 'died' in it and returned years later.
    Should we read into that?
    Absolutely, you should read into that, yes.
    How do you balance what you're going to play out and what you're doing for fun -- Easter eggs for fun that may or may not play out?
    Everything we put in there, we put in for a reason. Like that Grodd cage [in the pilot], when we walked on set -- because we had to convince them, we went back and forth a long time because I had to convince them we want this. I had to convince them we want this character to be a part of Flash mythology. And David Nutter, who did an amazing job on the pilot, understood it, grabbed onto i
    t, and when we got on set, it was gigantic! We only expected, like ,a little cage, but David really highlighted that because he knew it was a huge character for the mythology. It was important, and we were going to have plans for the future. We've dropped into so many things. There was a reason that everyone on the cast -- like Cisco Ramon is a character. Caitlin Snow is a character. They're all characters from the lore, and we don't just do that casually. We do that with a purpose… We've talked about characters as obscure as Clive Yorkin, if you remember him. So we have a lot of different plans for this.
    What's the craziest Flash concept from the comics that you want to make work for the TV show?
    God -- I think if we could make the Rogues work, I think we'll hit on something that no one else has. The Rogues are such a unique [concept] -- I mean, I personally love those characters. They're such a unique group of v
    illains, and we're starting with Captain Cold. If we can make that work, I think it will be really a blast to see them together, and the Flash fighting more than one character.
    This is the 75 anniversary of Batman. Tell me what that character means to you -- and also what he means to DC?
    Well, he's obviously the biggest superhero in the world. I think people really connect with him because he's a human being. Unlike a lot of other people, Batman is someone who put it upon himself to become a superhero without any special ability, without being from Krypton or being bitten by a spider. And he just continues to resonate. But that character will exist forever because the Waynes can get shot, like "Gotham" shows today, and the ramifications of that and the effect it has on a young Bruce Wayne will be the same.
    How cool has it been to see the 1966 "Batman" show finally getting its big debut on home video, and
    all the related merchandise?
    Oh, it's great to see all the hot toy stuff and all the product coming out. It's fun to see. It's fun to see '66 "Batman" celebrated the way it is. I think fans have been waiting for so long. I've been waiting a really long time for this, and to see everyone get behind it is really great.
    What's the comic book character that you still haven't gotten a chance to really get your hands on, the one you think, "Oh, in a couple of years --"

  • Kim Kardashian talks wedding mishaps on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' competes in diaper-changing contest with late-night host

    The 33-year-old Mrs. West dished details about her elaborate nuptials on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Monday and showed off her mothering skills.



    Not everything was picture perfect for Kimye's wedding.

    Kim Kardashian West stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday and dished some brand-new details behind her lavish Italian wedding to rapper husband Kanye West.

    When the late-night host asked the 33-year-old reality starlet if everyone behaved, she admitted one of her famous sisters had a bit too much alcohol at the rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles.

    “I think everyone just had such a good time at Versailles that they drank too much," Kardashian said.

    "Khloe drank a little too much the night before and I had to wake her up," she said of her younger sis. "She was laying down and getting her makeup done while she was sleeping, she was so hungover!"

    As to why the Hollywood pair — who exchanged vows at Forte di Belvedere in Florence following their rehearsal dinner in France — decided to celebrate in two different countries, she said "We fell in love in Paris, I got pregnant with our daughter in Florence. ... We wanted to share our love story."

    "We tried to trick everyone as to where the ceremony would be held, but when the information was leaked it kind of sucked," she added.

    Kardashian revealed there was one last-minute disaster at the reception: One expected invitee didn't attend after every guests name had already been engraved into a massive marble table top.

    "It was the worst," she told Kimmel. "We tried to put white paint and cover the name."

    While Kardashian did not divulge who the no-shows were, it was reported at the time of their nuptials that Beyoncé and Jay Z pulled out at the last minute and spent the weekend in the Hamptons instead.

    After her sit-down with Kimmel, the two parents challenged one another to a diaper-changing contest. Kimmel became a father for the third time in July, while Kardashian is mom to 13-month-old North West.

    "My baby shockingly doesn't cry," she revealed of little Nori.

    The brunette beauty certainly showed she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty as she triumphed over Kimmel in the hilarious competition and walked off stage with a trophy.

    The Fault In Our Stars is set to get a Bollywood makeover.

    Mumbai-based Fox Star Studios said it will adapt the film in Hindi. “We think the story will have an emotional connect with Indian audiences,” Fox Star Studios CEO Vijay Singh told The Hollywood Reporter. “The original English version was released here a couple of weeks ago and is still running. The film has done a business of about $1 million. We had actually thought of adapting it locally even before the film was released here.”
    Details about the adaptation are still being worked out “in terms of which director will helm the project along with casting details and when it can go into production,” added Singh.

    Based on John Green's novel of the same name, The Fault In Our Stars was directed by Josh Boone starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, with Laura Dern, Sam Trammell and Willem Dafoe in supporting roles. Woodley plays a sixteen-year-old cancer patient who attends a support group where she subsequently meets and falls in love with a cancer survivor (Elgort).

    In May, FSS released City Lights, the Hindi remake of UK foreign Oscar entry Metro Manila. Recently, the studio unveiled the teaser of Bang Bang!, the Bollywood reworking of the Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starrer Knight And Day. Starring A-listers actor Hrithik Roshan and actress Katrina Kaif, Bang Bang! will open on 2 October.

    Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, says, "Every once in a while comes a special film that goes on to define the emotions of a generation. The Fault In Our Stars resonates with the emotions of today's youth and has found appeal across audience demographics. We are hugely excited to be adapting the film for Bollywood and can't wait to get started!"

    Peter Capaldi says he is certain that at least one person will like his performance as the Doctor “even if everyone else hates me.”

    Speaking to Marie Claire magazine ahead of his debut as the latest owner of the Tardis, Capaldi says: “I don't know if people will like me or not; or if the show will be more successful or less successful. But no matter what happens, someone somewhere will love me – I'll be someone's Doctor. Even if everyone else hates me.”

    Capaldi added that his version of the character will be less “user-friendly” than tenth Doctor David Tennant and also reaffirmed his assertion that there will be no romantic spark between his character and Jenna Coleman’s assistant, Clara.

    “He's definitely not boyfriend material, because that's not appropriate,” said Capaldi of his Doctor. “He's less user-friendly [than Tennant] he's not a walk in the park. The relationship with Clara is one of responsibility and debt and affection.

    ''[Eleventh Doctor] Matt [Smith] and David [Tennant] are much younger than me, much more handsome. And that's what people have decided they want to take from it. I don't think that will be happening for me. I don't expect to be anyone's heartthrob.

    Capaldi says he is nevertheless aware of the responsibility that comes with playing the role because of the show’s huge popularity.

    “With a big role like this, you have a big sense of responsibility – it's bigger than me. Doctor Who belongs to all the people who love it. [Being in the spotlight] is just part of the game."

    Deep Breath, the feature-length first episode of the new eighth series of Doctor Who, will air on BBC1 on Saturday 23rd August.

    Earlier this year, Adult Swim announced that the network had partnered with the popular video-driven website WorldStarHipHop.com to develop a new live-action comedy series inspired by "the energy and style" of the website.

    The pilot will be executive produced by site founder Q WorldStar and Devon Shepard ("House of Lies, "MadTV").

    Announced this afternoon, Paramount Studios has fast-tracked a feature film inspired by WorldStarHipHop.com, which Russell Simmons has come onboard to co-produce, along with Q Worldstar, Douglas Banker, and Trevor Engelson.

    A Fall shoot in New York City is eyed, with Ian Edelman, creator of HBO's "How to Make It in America," writing the screenplay and is set to direct.

    Plot details are being kept a mystery for now, although comparisons are being made to "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."

    The film will be produced under Paramount's micro-budget (by Hollywood standards) branch, Insurge Pictures - a program the studio set up to finance 10 feature films, all made with $100,000 budgets each.

    Since its launch in 2005, WorldstarHipHop.com has grown from a niche site covering hip-hop culture, news and user-generated video content, into an online juggernaut that receives over 20 million page views a day and 30 million unique visitors a month.

    Just yesterday, UK sensation Disclosure landed on late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s live stage in the middle of Hollywood to perform their certified platinum hit, “Latch.” The recognized tune featured a live performance from vocalist Sam Smith, a British singer still hot from the release of his own celebrated album, In the Lonely Hour. The powerhouse trio paid homage to the track that, to many, placed both acts on the pop music map and was the first fuel to the fire that blasted them forward in their careers.

    Less than two months out from celebrating Settle‘s first birthday, the duo told Radio.com that as of September, Disclosure will follow plans to head into the studio for their sophomore album… but preparation for the record has already begun. “We’ve been writing [music] for the last few months,” Guy explains. Although the two seem to be accumulating enough music to release a new album at any moment, he continues to clarify that time in the studio has become more of experimental play time. “Because we’re not writing for a particular release, we’ve just been having fun experimenting with different sounds,” Howard further elucidates. “Naturally, a [new sound] might happen, but we won’t stray anywhere too far from the first album. We still feel like we have a lot to give.”

    Eva Green went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the new Sin City, and ended up talking pretty much entirely about nudity. That’s no shocker, really, since it sounds like she’s going to be naked for basically the entire movie.

    Jimmy also asked her about her feelings surrounding her character’s solo poster, which was banned for showing too much underboob (and nipple-shadow). She says she doesn’t “understand all the fuss,” and finds it more ridiculous that the MPAA didn’t have a problem with the gun she’s holding in the picture. After all, she says, “boobs have never killed anyone,” before pointing out, “I mean, you can suffocate somebody.”

    Dear godtopus, I hope that’s a spoiler for the movie.

    Lee Pace is currently on our screens as the vengeful, face-painted fundamentalist Ronan The Accuser in Guardians Of The Galaxy. But for Prisoner Of War, he’ll have to face off against aliens as a human warrior instead.

    Pace has been cast to replace Chronicle’s Alex Russell in the film, which sees him as an American soldier alongside a French foreign aid worker (Skyfall’s Bérénice Marlohe) who are sent to Africa. It sounds more like a crusading charity movie, but then you factor in that humanity is in the middle of a last stand against a devastating alien invasion. And you’ve got to figure that given the title, it’s not going to go well for either.

    Joe Miale, who has plied his trade on music videos, game tie-ins, straight-to-DVD efforts and shorts, is making the jump to feature films with this one, writing the script with Rowan Athale. Pace will next show up in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies (due December 12) as Elf King Thranduil and is also part of Stephen Frears’ as-yet-untitled Lance Armstrong film, which is now racing through post-production. Marlohe, meanwhile, has a role in Terrence Malick’s untitled 2015 film and worked on rom-com 5 To 7 alongside Glenn Close and Frank Langella

    Christina Aguilera Uses Pregnant Belly as a Table in Hunger Relief Campaign Ad

    The bump has many uses! Christina Aguilera used her pregnant tummy as a prop in adorable new photos promoting the Tuesday, Aug. 5 launch of the World Hunger Relief's "Pass the Red Cup" challenge.

    In the sweet snapshots, the pregnant star, 33, wears a denim jacket and white dress that cascades over her burgeoning bump. Aguilera, who's served as a global spokesperson for WHR (which benefits the U.N. World Food Programme) since 2009, uses her belly as a table top to write a message on a cup.

    The star is challenging her fans to #PassTheRedCup on social media, which looks to fight global hunger.

    In a blog post for Huffington Post, Aguilera explained why this cause in particular was so important. "It's heartbreaking to me that in our social media driven, increasingly-connected world, nearly 850 million people go to bed hungry each night," she wrote. "And this includes far too many children. It's a subject so close to my heart and has been for a long time, being a mom."
    Aguilera reflected on her time in Rwanda, where she spent time at a refugee camp. "They told me how they escaped violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo," she recalled of the people. "Their courage and hope for a better life was incredible. On my trip, I served food to kids who walk miles to and from school each day to receive a hot meal. I also went to Haiti after the earthquake hit a few years ago and saw its devastating effects on many families. Kids there were so happy just to get rice and beans from WFP."

    I wonder when she's due..
